    Surgery

    Surgery seems to generally remove body parts that are not functioning, however can surgery actually restore the thyroid gland?

    Restoring it has nothing to do with surgery in my opinion. I think that the best course is treatment and only if your thyroid glands were 'dead' then they would have to be removed.

    Re: Surgery

    I guess what I'm getting at is if surgery would 'patch' anything up rather than just remove it altogether.

    I just posted a Thread with thyroid surgery photos, take a look: thyroid-surgery-photos-t45.html

    Re: Surgery

    I saw the photos, including the ones of surgery. The cancerous thyroid can be the cause of a very bad diet. It is my theory that if one were to eat raw foods, fast once in awhile and change their sedentary habits then they would never have to see a doctor or worry about a bad functioning thyroid.

    Are you a vegan by chance? I've heard many vegans say that and not necessarily as it relates to thyroid diseases but everything in general when it comes to health. The problem is that we do not grow up chewing on a carrot, most of our foods are processed or with meat.

    Re: Surgery

    I do not advocate anyone becoming a vegan unless you are going to have every food element around. I do agree that a healthier lifestyle can reduce difficulties in health, but I think some people take it too far.

    I have seen vegetarian people with very healthy eating habits getting cancer of all sorts. So I do not think the occurrence of cancer is related to your eating habits and lifestyle alone. Those could play a minor role in it.
