I have a patient that I treat who has an MD diagnosis of hyperthyroidism. His symptoms presented as liver yang rising, with heat, yin deficiency, HT yin deficiency, as well as migraines, hypertension, constipation, insomnia and night sweats. I treat him twice a week. I use LI 11 to clear heat, the 4 gates to move qi, LU 7 (He has sinus involvement, plus LU 7 can move qi through the whole body. YinTang helps the sinusesd locally and calms the shen. ST 36 & SP 6 descend ST qi, harmonize the intestines and harmonize the LV. Ki 3 (alt w/ KI 6) tonifies yin. I use GB 39 (Master Tung's YiZhong) plus ErZhong (2 c proximal to GB 39 on the GB channel) and SanZhong (2 c proximal to ErZhong.) The Three Zhongs are Master Tung's specific points for hyperthyroidism--- feel for Ashi along the GB channel to find the exact location.
After four treatments the hypertension was gone, and the LV yang rising became LV heat. It's been 5 weeks now, and he looks more like yin deficiency. I adjust the points according to how he presents each time, but he's always Ashi on the 3 Zhongs. I chart that my recommendation is that he continue to be followed by the MD, though he is reluctant to do so.
You have to tailor the treatment for each patient, but I would definately recommend the Master Tung point set for the Hyperthyroidism.
