Description

Thyroid Problem is a disease of the Thyroid Gland.
Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland and is a part of Endocrine Gland. It is located at the base of the neck, just below the Adam's apple. It secretes thyroid hormones to regulate the metabolism of the body.
The production of thyroid hormone is controlled by the Pituitary gland and the Hypothalamus.
When the system is impaired the production of thyroid hormones either increases or decreases.
The two Hormones of Thyroid which are T3 and T4 play a very important role in metabolic activities. That is why the production of these two hormones are should be in a normal level.

The Thyroid Gland may malfunction in many ways. Each type of malfunction is dealt with separately under the following heads

Hypothyroidism : Inadequate production of the thyroid hormones.
Hyperthyroidism : Overactive thyroid gland produces excessive thyroid hormones.
Goiter : Whether the production of thyroid hormones is low or high, both conditions give rise to Goiter. It causes enlargement of the thyroid gland.
Graves Disease : The overproduction of thyroid hormones gives rise to Graves Disease.
Thyroiditis : It is the inflammation of the Thyroid Gland.
Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: It is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks the thyroid tissues and stops the production of thyroid hormones.
Thyroid cancer : Cancer of the thyroid gland.



Causes of Thyroid Problems
Stress
Smoking
Pregnancy
Genetics
Excessive Iodine
Iodine Deficiency

Thyroid Gland is a part of Endocrine System. It releases hormones that regulates energy and metabolic activities in the Body.

It helps to deal with Stress in people with Thyroid Problems.

2. Guggul : It is a yellowish extract that comes from the bark of Commiphera Mukul plant. It improves the functions of Thyroid Gland and regulates the conversion of T4 Hormone to T3 Hormone ( More active form ). It is good to improve the Hypothyroid condition.

4. Bladderwrack : It is rich in Iodine, which plays a major role in the stimulation of Thyroid Gland.

5. L - Tyrosine : It is an amino acid found in protein rich foods. L-tryosine during the production of Dopamine ( in the Brain ) and other Hormones in the Body. It regulates the production of T3 and T4 hormones.

Dear Lalitha Ramamurti
Have you tried Thyroidinum 3x? You may get it from a Homeopathy shop and have 4 to 5 small pallets once in a day.
For Itching apply pure coconut oil. You may also apply home made coconut butter. To make that add coconut powder in your mixer grinder and blend until the butter comes out.
Soak your feet in warm water for 10 to 15 min. Dry them and apply coconut oil before going to bed.

Yes, you may try Ashwagandha. Try to buy tincture " Withania Somnifera " and have 5 drops in a glass of water. Take it for 15 days. Also take Thyroidinum 3X. Have small 4 to 5 pallets 2 times in a day.
Thyroid may fluctuate , hypo may become hyper and vice versa. Eat a proper diet and go for brisk walk daily.

We have not come across from such evidences.
But, yes if you want a remedy for Hypothyroidism, then you may try Ashwagandha ( Take 5 drops of tincture or 1 tablet at alternative days ) and Thyroidinum 3X ( 3 to 4 small white tablets in a day ).
Note : Thyroid may fluctuate, hypo may become hyper and hyper may become hypo.
