What's the home remedy for thyroid? How to reduce high blood pressure? Please tell me exercise & food.
by saying thyroid if you are referring to hypothyroidism, then there is no home remedy other than avoiding following soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus consuming good deal of green leafy vegetables, fruits. Using whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoiding using maida and other refined flours. With all this thyroxine tablets in adequate dose are required, without which hypothyroidism will not be controlled. To control bp main thing you have remember is to reduce salt intake to about 2.3 g a day. Also avoid high fat foods and processed foods. Thanks for the question.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. "Shivering of fingers" can be due to a multiple reasons. If one gets low blood glucose, then there are other attended symptoms also. But if a person is normal (no diabetes, not on any hypoglycemic drugs), it is unlikely to occur. Or the other reason could be high insulin leading to low glucose. Therefore, unless your blood glucose is actually tested, no comment can be made. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose level PP 250 to 400 mg is very high. It is dangerous to have such high levels, as that can hasten long term complications of diabetes related to eye (retina), blood vessels, nerves, kidney and heart as well as lower limbs. Only modern medicine can treat diabetes effectively. There are no medicines available in other practices, even though various claims are made about curing the disease. If had any one cured the disease he would have been awarded Nobel Prize for that. Neither Ayurveda nor Homeopathy has any medications. Ifyou still want to try it your choice. In India there are close to 7 crore diabetes patients. So please decide early thanks.
