My mother has a thyriod condition?

And she’s getting panic attacks from her condition… Does anyone know some advice or personal secrets to help with the panic attacks. Or what she could do to prevent them.. Any health suggetions to make her feel better?

    It seems like she has hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid) – in this condition, your body works too fast (faster heart rate, faster breathing, diarrhoeoa, loss of weight, increased appetite, etc.) One of the problems is an overproduction of adrenaline – this may be the reason for the anxiety/panic attacks. If so, and if her doctor agrees, a beta-blocker drug eg propranolol, atenolol, betaxolol, oxprenolol, metoprolol, etc, which partly blocks the effects of the adrenaline, might help.

    An alternative therapy which might help is sea-kelp tablets from the health food shop, which are rich in iodine, and may help modulate thyroid function (thyroxine, the hormone produced by the thyroid, contains iodine).

    Hope this helps.

    Well, the primary things for Thyroid health are L-Tyrosine, Iodine, Coleus Forskohlii, and several antioxidants.

    As far as the panic attacks, I would suggest talking to a counselor about that… they may be able to help her learn to cope with things before a panic attack sits in.
