Show Notes

In those with hyperthyroidism, epinephrine, and norepinephrine levels can increase above the normal range, which can then cause cardiovascular symptoms. In specific scenarios, beta blockers are prescribed to help with the resulting elevations in heart rate and blood pressure

For some people, herbal supplements can be good alternatives to beta blockers. Today I’m sharing why beta blockers would be prescribed to people with hyperthyroidism, the three herbs I use to manage cardiovascular symptoms, and the cases where this approach is likely to be a good fit.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:
- Beta blockers and hyperthyroidism
- How beta blockers work
- Why beta blockers might be recommended to hyperthyroidism patients
- Natural alternatives to beta blockers
- How I used herbal supplements when dealing with Graves’ Disease
- What you need to know about motherwort, bugleweed, and hawthorn

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