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.

Thyroid Problems General

Thyroid Gland is a part of Endocrine System. It releases hormones that regulates energy and metabolic activities in the Body. If anything goes wrong with the Body, it disrupts the normal functioning of the Endocrine system. As a result, the secretion of Thyroid hormones ( T3 and T4 ) also get affected.
There are Herbs that regulate the secretion of Thyroid in the Body.

1. Ashwagandha : Whether the condition is Hypo or Hyper, Ashwagandha works as a superstar. It is an adaptogenic that brings the level of Thyroid Hormone back to normal. In case of low production of Thyroid Hormone, the root extract of Ashwagandha increase the production of T3 and T4 hormones. On the other hand it is also effective in the case of Hyperthyroidism and Grave's Disease. It also stimulates the levels of TSH in the Body. It balances the metabolic functions 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.

3. Coleus ( Forskolin ) : It enhances the production of cAMP ( Cyclic adenosine monophosphate ) enzyme in the Body. This enzyme regulates a number of Hormones including T3 in the Body. It also deals with Depression associated with Hypothyroidism.

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.

6. Bauhinia Purpurea : People who have Thyroid problems, the levels of Thyroid Hormones may fluctuate in their Body. The Hypo can become Hyper and vice versa. In that condition, Bauhinia Purpurea is an excellent remedy to deal with.

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.

My husband was taking 9 drops of Lugol’s Iodine as a supplement every day for many months without a break in between and slowly started feeling weaker with a rapid/ ponding heart until he has to go to the emergency at the hospital and was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism.
When he did the lab analysis his T4 and T3 where very high and TSH non existent. Despite the Endocrino saying that he has Graves desease because he has the antibodies on the thyroid I still think that this hyperthyroidism was caused by the intake of too much Iodine. This was in June this year. He started on 45 mg/day of Methymazol and now four months later he reduced to 5 mg while he was also taking all along some herbal tinctures of Buggleweed, Lemon Balm and Motherwort. Next week he’ll be only taking the tinctures then by the end of October do a blood Analysis to see if he still has a non existent TSH although his T4 T3 are within normal range and if he still has the thyroid antibodies.

Could he benefit from taking Bauhinia and ashwagandha for stress? And are these herbs compatible with the tinctures he already takes? Thank you ??
