Overactive Thyroid – Hyperthyroid is rarer than an under active thyroid, but it does occur. The symptoms we’ve seen in people with an overactive thyroid are a moon shaped face where the face takes on a round, flat look. Bulging eyes is another symptom. Along with this goes emotional turmoil. The medical solution for an overactive thyroid is to kill the thyroid and to put you on medicine for the rest of your life. Before trying this drastic solution, please consider trying an herbal solution to normalize your thyroid.
