History of goitre. On neo mercazole. Watercress juice suggested?

I have a goitre . Is mainly on the right side of my neck. Is not worrying me . My thyroid is functioning ok now I am on two and a half mg of neo- mercazole once a day. Will taking watercress juice help me or am I wasting my time. My thyroid was on the borderline of over active, but now is just a bit better than this. I have had my goitre for 13 years.

You are a patient of subacute hyperthyroidism
watercress contains more vitamin C than oranges, is higher in calcium then milk, has more iron than spinach, and contains the same protein per calorie as chicken breasts.
so you are wasting your time with water cress juice as it doesnot have neomercazole or any antithyroid activity
there are other options :
take neomercazole to be taken once daily
stop all the neomercazole and get tsh after 2 weeks
get a radioiodine ablation of your thyroid but your disease is not that advance.
take care
