Title: Thyroid, How to control it ?
Post by: msrhprasad on March 18, 2011, 08:56:16 PM
Is there any Ayurvedic Medicine to keep Thyroid in normal / Control.
As my wife has this one since 2006.
and Today blood sample given to the Lab(Vijaya Diagnosis) of My son who is 12yrs old...for thyroid Checking.

T3          -     1.48         -    0.60 - 1.81 ng/mL
T4          -     11.17       -    4.5 - 10.9 UG/DL
TSH        -     4.68         -    0.35 - 5.50 IU/mL

As my wife is using English Medicine since 2006 due to that she is facing some side effects.

So, is there any medicine in Ayurveda to control  thryroid. Please suggest me I will purchase it for my wife and Son.

I think it can\'t be vanish permanently..Like Diabetic...

Thyroid gland is situated in the neck and produces a hormone called thyroxine, which helps in regulating body metabolism. While deficiency of thyroxine hormone causes Myxoedema in adults and cretinism in children, excess of thyroxine levels could lead to exophthalmic goitre, Grave’s disease or Thyrotoxicosis.

Hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis is a condition which is more common in women of age group 30 to 50 years. Such individuals show symptoms of irritation, over-anxiety, rapid heart rate, deep shallow respiration, diarrhea, heat intolerance, flushing, menstrual disturbance, fatigue and bulging of eyes. Though all of the said thyroid symptoms may not be present a few of such symptoms could be due to hyperthyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a condition caused due to inactivity of thyroxine. This condition can be caused due to deficiency of iodine or thyroid failure or pituitary dysfunction. Symptoms include fatigue, loss of vitality and overall hormonal imbalance. When hypothyroidism is left untreated for a long time it could result in myxodema which is distinguished by swollen skin and tissues.

According to Ayurveda, taking adequate quantities of milk can help in preventing goitre. Also rice, barley, Bengal gram, moong dal and cucumber are recommended for patients suffering from goitre. They should of course avoid heavy and sour foods. Herbs that are found useful in treatment of thyroid disorders include Kanchanara, Jatamansi, Shilajita, Brahmi guggulu, gokshura, and punarnava.

As a home remedy, a fine paste of vegetable jalakumbhi can be applied over the affected area and the juice of jalakumbi can be given a few times in a day. This has a high content of iodine, the deficiency of which causes goitre.
Coconut oil which contains medium chain fatty acids which help in improving body metabolism,   is good for those suffering from thyroid disorders. The medicines used in Ayurveda for treating thyroid disorders include Kanchanar Guggulu, Ashwagandharishta, Amritadhaya taila and Mahayogaraj guggulu.

Apart from all this, yogic asanas like Sarvangasana, Halasana, Suryanamaskara, Suptavajrasana are found helpful, though Pranayama is the most effective for curing thyroid problems.

depending on level of this problem, use those medicines

There is no permanent cure for Thyroid in Allopathy(English Medicine). But there are permanent cure for that in Homeopathy and Acupuncture. Few of my friends and relatives had this and got cured. Few got treated by Homeopathy and few by Acupuncture. Both are giving very good results.

Don\'t try for home based solutions for Thyroid problems. Go and consult a doctor according to your choice, whether it is a Homeopath or an Acupuncturist.

All the Best!

Guggul has been shown to  activate the thyroid, so if there is a hypothyroid condition one can take triphala guggulu tablets. For hyperthyroid though, no such medicine is known
