Hashimotos and Sore Throats

by Lorna
(Sunshine Coast, Australia)

I wanted to share my story with you. 2008 was one of the worst of my life - I have often wished that I had found these oils then - but obviously it was not to be.

I had been suffering with Hashimotos disease for 6.5 years after the birth of my son in 2002. I was putting up with sore itchy throats, allergies, tingling in toes and fingers, depression, fatigue etc. I was able to find some natural herbs which assisted me in controlling most of these symptoms and was on medication from 2003 until May 2009.

When I bought my first batch of essential oils in March 2009 (Raindrop Technique and Everyday Oils) and received my Essential Oils Desk Reference I chose to order Spearmint for Underactive Thyroid as recommended in the Desk Reference.

I tried this for 6 weeks or so, I did not feel any change in my Thyroid disease. I remember looking up the Desk Reference again and thinking, "Lets try another oil".

I ordered Lemongrass, which I applied to my throat each morning and continued to apply Spearmint to my Thyroid vitaflex point (on the sole of the foot) each night. Within 2 days I felt different, I went off my medication after 2 weeks of Lemongrass and waited 6 weeks before having a blood test.

My doctor happily advised me that my levels were fine and that I should keep on the same amount of medication that I had been on for the past 6.5 years. I told her that I had not been on my meds for 6 weeks - she told me to get re-tested.

It has now been 4 months since I have taken any medication, I have lost a dress size, have no allergies, no sore throats or any other symptoms which I previously suffered. I continue to put one drop of Lemongrass on my thyroid gland every day (and it doesn't cost much!)

I also briefly want to share my story about Frankincense. My son had been putting up with a sore throat for 4 days, I kept asking him if I could try an oil, after 4 days he relented, one drop of Frankincense on the throat and after 30 seconds his sore throat was gone. Two days passed and of course I got his sore throat, 1 drop of Frankincense, gone!

How are you doing now? Are you still using just essential oil for Hashimoto's?

Dear Cricket
I have contacted Lorna and she informs me that she still continues to use essential oils. She has changed from lemongrass to myrtle essential oil and included some essential oil supplements. She is well and happy :)
