 What kind of treatment can I get for a Goiter when I am allergic to iodine and donot want surgery?

OK… I was just (5 minutes ago) diagnosed with Goiter (enlarged thyroid). I have had the blood work and ultrasound so it is definitly the problem. I have read up on it when I was warned it may be problem but I cannot find anything about treatment for someone who is ALLERGIC to IODINE. I can have it in very small amounts (I can eat seafood a couple times a month spread out) but if I have large doses or even cook with it daily my throat swells, I get hives and have breathing difficulties. Once I passed out after I ate too much seafood and my airways were blocked because of the reaction and and I had to be admitted to the hospital because of it. I would prefer a natural remedy but I am open to all suggestions and information. Thank you.

why didn't you ask your MD 5 minutes ago about treatments
