Hypothyroidism Treatment - Natural Remedies for Underactive Thyroid

by jiva ayurveda Jivaayurveda
Hypothyroidism is caused due to the problems within the thyroid gland that causes insufficient circulation of thyroid hormone in our body. The symptoms of Hypothyroidism start with the decrease in the metabolism rate, slowing down of mental and physical activity. People who are suffering from Hypothyroidism might experience a differing variety of symptoms such as sensitivity to cold, dryness of the skin, constipation, anorexia, anginal pain, anemia and also a disordered menstrual function. 

Hypothyroidism mainly affects the females that generally cause to slow down their system. Ayurvedic remedies were very successful in treating cases of hypothyroidism in the past and they had also successfully restored the balance. Leading a stressful lifestyle, depending on various drugs, and following an unhealthy diet has always played a vital role in making this disease such a common problem these days.

For the synthesis of the thyroid hormones, sufficient iodine is required along with the presence of other thyroid stimulating hormones. The iodine is then taken up by the thyroid gland and incorporated into thyroglobulin molecules. Thus, the main reason that causes Hypothyroidism is definitely the deficiency of Iodine. But there are many cases that have been noted, where this disease was actually caused by pituitary or hypothalamic disease or even certain medications.

Ayurvedic Hypothyroidism treatment generally involves the clearing of these channels so that the body energies or the doshas are balanced as well as to restore the circulation of thyroxin. These ayurvedic preparations are made in such a way that they would increase the digestive fire at a cellular level, thus restoring proper metabolism. Ayurvedic treatment for hypothyroidism offers a perfect blend of effective herbal remedies such as diet and lifestyle change for Hypothyroidism. The blend that Ayurveda provide contains 100 % natural products which would help to restore the balance of the hormones.

Some of the diet and lifestyle tips are:

  • You must take adequate quantities of milk in your diet
  • You must increase intake of rice, barley, Bengal gram, moong dal and cucumber.
  • You must use coconut oil as it helps in improving body metabolism in thyroid patients.
  • You should avoid heavy and sour foods.

Some of the home remedies that you can opt for to help you with the swelling due to the disease are:

  • Make a fine paste of a vegetable called the jalakumbhi and apply it to the affected parts, it would help in reducing the swelling. 
  • Consume the juice of the same vegetable as it would increase the amount of iodine. Because iodine deficiency is the prime reason for the disease.

Long before medical science found thyroid treatments or the best Ayurvedic centers in India came up with the treatments, yogis of India use to practice Yoga, which would not only help in maintaining healthy glands and metabolism but would also help in maintaining a good health. 

Sarvangasna, is the most suitable and effective asana of the thyroid gland. This powerful posture creates a pressure on the gland. As the thyroid gland has one of the largest blood supplies in the body, the pressure that is created has a positive effect on its functioning, and improves the circulation and also squeezes out stagnant secretions.

But if you think you are not comfortable with Yoga or you might need a trainer you can easily opt for pranayama as even it has the same effect on the thyroid gland.
