Thyroid has become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. It is triggered due to the presence of impurities in the blood, which lead to hormonal imbalances and therefore, a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced. But in case of hyperthyroid, you will notice an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation.
Irrespective of whether you are suffering from hyperthyroid or hypothyroid, Ayurvedic treatment has some viable solutions that are aimed at elevating your health condition.
Ayurveda and thyroid
Though there is no direct mention of thyroid in the Ayurvedic texts, there are major implications that hint towards a disease like thyroid that is caused due to imbalance of body fluid and its probable treatments. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes:
1. Dietary regulations: As per Charaka, thyroid doesn’t affect those individuals who take milk in adequate quantities. In addition, you must take moong seeds, bengal gram seeds, sugarcane, cucumber, barley and old rice in optimum amounts for prevention of thyroid. In case you are already suffering from thyroid imbalance, then you must also aim at having a considerable amount of milk on a regular basis.
2. Herbs for regulating thyroid: The herb named Purple Mountain Ebony is purposely helpful in the treatment as well as proper functioning of the thyroid gland. In addition to this herb, you must also intake Punarnava, Brahmi, Jatamansi, Gokshura and Shilajita for alleviating your thyroid problems.
3. Home remedies: If there is swelling in any part of the body caused due to thyroid imbalances, then it can be properly treated by applying a fine paste of Jalakumbhi over the affected area. The juice of this paste can be administered in a small quantity of 22 grams in a span of 24 hours. It helps to increase the amount of iodine in the body which helps to fix various problems in the body. If you are experiencing a lack of energy and weakness, you can use coconut oil for boosting the sluggish metabolism of the body.
4. Yoga for treating thyroid: There are various Yogic postures, which are believed to help in the maintenance of the thyroid gland. You can practice sun salutation, fish pose and shoulder stand for alleviating your condition and get rid of all types of health issues caused from thyroid imbalances.
If you wish to get a personalised evaluation of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you.

Diabetes is a disease characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from body’s inability to produce and/or use insulin. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps maintain your blood sugar levels.
Diabetes if untreated, over a period of time, may cause damage to blood vessels, nerves, kidney and many other organs of your body, causing a variety of complications like difficulty seeing, tingling and numbness in the hands and feet or an increased risk for a heart attack or stroke.
You should undergo these 10 examinations periodically if you are a diabetic:
1. Blood sugar levels
You should get your blood sugar levels checked regularly as advised by your doctor. Blood sugar levels are checked by two types of tests: fasting blood sugar test and postprandial blood sugar test. The frequency of getting these tests done varies from person to person on the basis of age, type of medication and severity of the condition.
2. Hba1c test
Hba1c test is the most common test done to evaluate how much free glucose has attached itself to red blood cells in the body over the last three months. This test should be done every 3 months.
3. Blood pressure:
Try maintaining your blood pressure less than 130/80 mmhg. Patients who manage to keep their pressure under control are less likely to suffer from the common problems associated with diabetes such as heart attacks, blindness, or kidney damage. Get your blood pressure checked at every doctor’s visit or twice every month.
4. Eye examination:
You should visit an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) once every year for a detailed eye examination. The doctor would check for any damage to the nerve tissues on the back of the eye (retina). Diabetes may lead to decreased vision and in some cases blindness as well. So a regular annual eye checkup is essential to prevent any eye damage.
5. Foot examination
You must visit your doctor for a foot examination at least once every year to get your pulses and reflexes checked in your feet. You may also be examined for any unhealed cut, infections, sores or loss of feeling anywhere in your feet. The risk of having a foot problem increases if you are a type 2 diabetic. Get yourself examined every 6 months, if you had foot ulcers before.
6. Cholesterol profile test:
Cholesterol is a waxy substance present in your blood as hdl (good cholesterol) and ldl (bad cholesterol). With diabetes, the ldl levels and triglycerides tend to increases while the hdl levels decrease, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. You should get your cholesterol profile checked every year regularly. If you already have high cholesterol then you should have this test more often.
7. Kidney tests
Kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood and removing waste products from the body. In diabetics, the blood vessels in the kidneys get injured and your kidneys cannot clean your blood properly. Your body will retain more water and salt than it should. You may have protein in your urine. Generally, this damage happens many years before it gives any symptoms. So, you should get a yearly check for your kidneys through kidney function tests (blood tests) and a urine test.
8. Dental checkup:
Get yourself examined every 6 months by a dentist for your gums, teeth and regular cleaning.
9. Liver function tests and thyroid stimulated hormone test:
Liver function tests (lft) should be done once annually as it helps determine the health of your liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes, or bilirubin in your blood. People with type-1 diabetes should also get their tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone) check done every year.
10. Vitamin b12 test:
In case you are taking metformin from a long time, then you must get your vitamin b12 levels checked as the use of metformin may cause vitamin b12 deficiency. Periodic measurement of vitamin b.vitamin b1 deficiency
