Hypothyroidism - Role of Homeopathy in Treating it

Hypothyroidism - Role of Homeopathy in Treating it

Hypothyroidism is a condition called deficiency of thyroid hormone. The main duty of thyroid hormone is to rmaintain the metabolism of the body. Hence, the person affected by it will experience slow metabolism. Hypo means underactive, which means the lack of thyroid hormones in the body. 

Types of Hypothyroidism

This happens when the functioning thyroid gland fail to produce T3 and T4. As a result, pituitary gland releases Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). This helps in producing T3 and T4 hormones. This cause is termed as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

  1. Primary Hypothyroidism is the deficiency of thyroid hormones due to inadequate production.
  2. Secondary Hypothyroidism is deficiency of thyroid hormones due to inadequate stimulation of the thyroid gland through pituitary gland.

Causes of Hypothyroidism

  • Deficiency of Iron
  • Viral infections or other respiratory disorders
  • Certain medicines such as lithium that is used to treat psychiatric
  • Radiation therapy for some cancers
  • Treating hyperthyroidism with anti-thyroid medicine
  • An underactive thyroid gland by birth
  • The hypothyroidism during pregnancy.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Weakness
  • Dry, rough pale skin
  • Coarse, dry hair
  • Hair loss
  • Muscle cramps and muscle aches
  • Cold intolerance
  • Constipation
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Decreased libido

Homeopathy Treatment for Hypothyroidism
Homeopathy medicines are always known for treating the disease permanently and same way the medicine performs here too. The disease could be treated through different medicines in homeopathy. Choosing or prescribing the right medicine depends on the cause of the disease and its effect.

Here is the list of homeopathy medicines that helps in eradicating the effectiveness of the disease completely.

  • Calcarea Carbonica
  • Sepia Officinalis
  • Lycopodium Clavatum
  • Graphites
  • Nux Vomica
  • Iodum treats hypothyroidism. The person is emaciated
  • Thymusinum - treatment of stunted conditions in children
  • Bromum treats goiter
  • Lapis albus treats hyperthyroidism and goiter
  • Natrum muriaticum treats an under active gland

However, these are just the names of the medicines, which should not be taken without prior approval from a homeopathy doctor, as the dosage and frequency of the medicine will be decided by the doctor based on the patient's condition and symptoms.

The best thing that you need to do is to go for vaman karma next month. Talk to a panchakarma expert. This will detoxify the body & lead to a decrease in sugar levels.

Mr. lybrate-user , Thanks for the query. At your age with given height, your ideal body weight should be 60.7 kgs. So I do not see the need to add any weight. With 65 kgs your BMI is 23.3 kgs/M2, which good. Thanks.

Hello, 1) I am assuming you had your blood tests done recently. Have you been diagnosed as diabetic patient before or are these tests the first time you got them done? 2) if you have not been diagnosed with diabetes before, then your results show that you are in Pre-diabetes stage. If you are previous diabetic patient then these results are borderline normal. 3) For pre-diabetes the management is brought lifestyle changes. A) you are overweight. You mentioned you are 5.1 feet in height. Your ideal weight should be about 55-56 kgs. B) To lose weight you need to eat less and exercise more. You can do any cardiovascular exercises like jogging, running, fast walking, swimming, cycling etc. So treadmill is good. You have to exercise at least 45 minutes everyday, at least 5 days of the week. Start slow and gradually increase the duration and intensity of exercise. C) follow a good diet- to lose weight. Eat plenty of vegetables, whole grains, pulses, milk, fruits like apple, pears, mosambi, small bowl of watermelon, musk melon etc. Avoid fatty food, deep fried food, junk food like bajjis, burger, pizzas etc, avoid sweets and sugary stuff. D) follow the above for 3 months and then get your blood glucose checked again. Do continue your lifestyle changes even after your blood glucose returns back to normal level. Ihopebthis helps you. I wish you all the best. Thank you.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking thyroxine from last 3 years with the prescription of doctor. Earlier my tsh remain near to 6 or 4 but now it declined to 0.25. My doctor is still saying to continue 50 and 75 mg thyroxine on alternate basis but I am feeling some kind of weakness in my body and sometimes feels dizziness and fainting, low level of energy in body. Is it due to the excess fall in tsh level and whether I should continue taking 50 and 75 mg alternate or shall minimize it?

TSH as such does not cause any symptoms. They are caused by Thyroid hormone. TSH levels reflect avilaibility of Thyroid hormone. When Thyroid hormne level falls TSH (Thyroid stimilating hormone) secreted from pituitary gland to stimulate thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone and when thyroid hormone level in blood rises (due to excessive production by thyroid gland or exogenously taken, TSH level falls. Intreating patients we take help of TSH levels in blood.

You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. Go for an hour long walk every day. If you don't loose weight soon you will develop high BP. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website OR send me a personal question.

FIBRE:
Processed foods are devoid of natural fibre. On an average women need 35g and men 38 gm of fibre daily to keep their gut healthy. Also fibre binds the excess sugar as well as bad cholesterol from the blood stream and excretes it out. Thus fibre helps in diabetes, cholesterol, acidity, gastritis, GERD, constipation, IBS etc. To get more fibre, one should incorporate sprouts, plenty of fruits and raw veg in the form of salads.
