Hormones and teens

I have a 17 year old daughter who has type 1 diabetes, no thyroid function and is very thin.  She was given a hormone to induce her period a month ago and it was her one and only period.  Is there anything she can take to regulate without the pills?  They made her a basket case for the 10 days she took them.

I've heard Iodine supplements can help support thyroid function.  But with the diabetes, I'm assuming you have to be careful.  I would connect with a naturopathic doctor to be safe, but diet and herbs can typically help to balance hormones.  I'm a HUGE proponent of the Westin A Price foundation way of eating.  I also like Chaste Tree Berry tincture to balance hormones and ovulation.  But again, these are recommendations and based on your daughter's health, I would make safety a priority.  Find a good Naturopath!

Ok thanks.  I was going to contact a place called food for life.  They offer classes. Have you heard of them?
