Hi.. There are no other alternative treatment plan for hypothyroidism except for supplementing it through medications... As this is a hormone replacement, the side effects develop when there is over correction leading to hyperthroidism state.. In such a cases symptoms of hyperthroidism like palpitation, weight loss, anxiety, tremors, gastritis and others develop....
