Lemon Balm and thyroid

John89September 21, 2007

Hello, I read that lwemon Balm (Melissa) lowers thyroid hormone.

Anyone know if this sffect is strong?. I liked Lemon Balm´s calming effect but I have low thyroid.

Alternatives?. Maybe chamomile?.

Not chamomile. And chrysanthemum flower has some of the same things as chamomile that lower thyroid.

My wife gets cold and her thyroid swells from chamomile. She takes skullcap (scutellaria) for a relaxing tea and that doesn't seem to bother her. Passionflower contains the same type of relaxants as skullcap, but her skin gets sensitive when she drinks passiflora - not a thyroid thing as far as she can tell, just an individual reaction.
