Show Notes

Lemon balm is a herb used throughout history for treating many ailments. In my practice, I commonly recommend lemon balm for anxiety and sleep problems, but based on the research, there are potential benefits for those with hyperthyroidism.

Before diving in, let me share a bit about my experience with this herb. When I was dealing with Graves’ disease, I didn't take lemon balm simply because I wasn't familiar with it at the time. However, after researching its incredible benefits, I'm convinced it could have really helped me.

Today I’m sharing several research studies and discussing the benefits and potential risks of using lemon balm and why I decided to make it a part of my thyroid calming bundle.

In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Different conditions for which lemon balm has historically been used
- The many beneficial properties of lemon balm
- Potential risks associated with lemon balm
- What research shows about the cardioprotective effect of lemon balm
- Bugleweed and lemon balm for the treatment of Graves’
- Evidence of anti-thyroid activity
- How I typically use lemon balm in my practice

As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
