If you have been cleared of having Hyperthyroidism and you just have a generally over-active metabolism, natural medicine would recommend that you use remedies that work to calm down your constitution. Natural Medicine looks at relaxation, meditation, yoga, stretching, nutrition that uses calming foods, herbal medicines that are calming. There are also homeopathic medicines that may be used specific to your symptoms, here a Homeopath would take your case and select a very specific remedy.
Try the following; take 15 to 30 minutes a day to do a complete body relaxation exercise, avoid highly stimulating exercise programs such as jogging, eat a good balanced diet with no spicy foods and avoid salt, stick to root vegetables healthy rice pasta and breads, passiflora is a good herbal remedy.
