A reader realized her cat’s symptoms may indicate hyperthyroid problems. she says: “I don’t want to go the traditional vet route and am searching for holistic remedies. I have read about various natural thyroid support products like Thyroid support gold which I will try to see if this helps, but I could only order it online. Is there any other products I can give her to help? I read that l-carnitine and CoQ10 could relax the thyroid gland. Any thoughts?”
There are dozens of holistic “treatments” for hyperthyroidism. Some work miracles in some cats but not all. Others help slightly but do not really cure. Your cat could become more ill as you try one after the other. Also, many cats do not like to take a lot of medications. You can learn, how to evaluate your cat’s responses to different treatments.
However, until you learn and for an illness as severe as hyperthyroidism, I would strongly recommend working with a specific healer, probably a veterinarian, who is very well trained in multiple holistic modalities. Homeopathy, TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine – acupuncture and more), chiropractic and Ayurvedic would be the most likely to rebalance the underlying quantum imbalance that is causing the problem with the thyroid gland.
The best healing you can offer your cat is to be attuned with Reiki (read more about this totally safe modality). Look for local classes. They do not need to be animal based as Reiki helps people, animals plants and more.
Also helpful for your cat will be to follow the 7 keys to health, especially no vaccines and a fresh food diet.
While I do agree that your cat’s symptoms seem to indicate hyperthyroidism, I still recommend getting a blood panel to confirm that and to see if other organs (often kidneys) are less than healthy.
