as I said, the disease is burning itself out...

Faith is a wonderful thing.

So where are the double blind studies that show these herbs work?

The disease is not burning itself out. When I stopped taking the herbs (I did a "test" to see if they were working), my thyroid hormones went back into hyper range. And they cannot really do studies on herbs or essential oils, I do not think, because the growing conditions change year to year, and the herbs/oils are never exactly the same because of this. My current doctor (I've all but dropped my endo), is a doctor of osteopathic medicine, and this is from his site:
Convergent therapeutics is the practice of applying insights from allopathic mainstream conventional medicine and other holistically supportive treatments when one or the other on their own, fail to adequately allay symptoms or treat the disease state. Looking at disease states by addressing systems through the lenses of multiple vantage points helps in the development of a more comprehensive and thorough regime. Most physical complaints can be easily remedied with the appropriate corresponding medication. However, some symptoms linger or influence the body in a myriad of ways that are not best accounted for by medication management alone. In these instances, Dr. looks at, and analyzes, possible co-occurring explanations for symptom presentation including: toxicity, glandular disorders, heavy metals presence, food allergies and substance intolerance.
I like this manner of doctoring much better than holistic alone, or mainstream conventional medicine alone (because doors are not shut, but opened), and it seems his other patients think similarly as well.
