My friend have thyroid from 3 months. is there is any treatment for this to core permanently? please help me.
there is treatment for control only by medicines and life style changes. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Whether drinking apple cider vinegar is advisable or not, one thing is for certain: It does NOT help reduce weight or uric acid by itself!

If you are diagnosed with “pre-diabetes,” can you eat right and exercise enough for it to go away?
Mr Praveen, If one has pre diabetes, then a modified life style has to be adapted, which means : exercise regularly for more than 1 hour a day, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Avoid smoking and alcohol, maintain normal weight, consume more of green leafy vegeables and fruits. Avoid sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. These thing followed regularly can help one remain free from diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have no diabetes then taking coconut water is not harmful at all. The amount of glucose in that is not very high. In fact other foods like pastries, bakery items, junk foods are more harmful. So you need not worry. You may also take more proteins like 2 or 3 eggs a day, plus exercise to build muscles and strength.

Treatment for diabetes we are facing the problem since 7years we want solution for rest of whole life please help me.
Lybrate-user, for diabetes mellitus appropriate treatment with drugs, diet control and regular exercise are needed to achieve very good control and prevent or delay possible long term complications of the disease. But to help I need to know following details: fasting, pp glucose levels, hba1c%, present treatment with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the details then I can give specific guidance. In this communication we are supposed to give general advise like: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and all other bakery items. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Avoid maida and items made with it. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day and dietary intake should be based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Thanks.

Mr Vipul, Diabetes mellitus and hypertension both conditions can only be controlled by appropriate treatment with drugs, die,t exercise.and weight control. There is no cure for these conditions.Treatment has to be for life time. Drug selection and dosage will depend on individual patient, sugar and BP level. Similarly dietary advise also has to be very specific and induvidualised. So you may come in a private conversation with all the details like fasating and Pp sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern, weight and height. There I will be able to give specific advice .

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Thyroid is one among the many glands in the endocrine system, whose secreted hormones regulate and maintain various metabolic activities. Thyroid problem, in generic terms, refers to a situation where there is an abnormal secretion of the thyroid hormone. The secretion can either be abundant, causing what is known as hyperthyroidism, or insufficient which, in turn is known as hypothyroidism. Both of these conditions are detrimental to health affecting not only your body weight but also the growth of bones and hair. Though different branches of medicines are constantly dabbling with this problem, Homeopathy is the most preferred choice.

Some of the reasons for it are:

  1. Treats severe sweating, problems in menstruation and constipation: One of the most important advantages of Homeopathy medicines is that each one of them is equipped to treat a host of ailments. The condition, hypothyroidism is symptomatic of excessive sweating on the head, constipation and problems in menstruating in women. All of these can be cured by the intake of Calcarea Carbonica.
  2. Cures paleness of skin, tendencies of fainting and hair fall: This is another characteristic of hypothyroidism, wherein you suffer from pale, yellow skin and are unable to bear extreme cold temperatures due to the lack of vitality and body heat.  At the same time, women in their menopause tend to suffer from excessive hair fall. In all of these situations, a Homeopathic medicine called Sepia Officinalis is extremely beneficial in curbing these.
  3. Does not create overt reliance on medicines: Hyperthyroidism is a condition that is marked by nervousness and anxiety. Though allopathic medicines have always been preferred to others, it must also been considered that in their attempt to cure, they end up creating an overt reliance of medicines in the patients.
  4. Suits everybody: The primary reason for preferring Homeopathy to others is their complete lack of any side-effect. Both allopathy and ayurveda may or may not work on certain individuals. However, that is not the case for Homeopathy as it does not adopt any artificial means to cure thyroid problems, rather uses natural means to regulate the secretion of the thyroid gland.

Best Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally:

  1. Eat Healthy Fats (Including Coconut Oil and Avocados)
  2. Supplement with Adaptogen Herbs
  3. Balance Your Intake of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Fats
  4. Improve Gut Health & Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
  5. Eliminate Toxic Kitchen, Beauty and Body Care Products
  6. Exercise (Especially Interval Training)
  7. Reduce Stress & Get More Sleep
  8. Watch Your Caffeine & Alcohol Intake
  9. Back Off Birth Control Pills
  10. Supplement with Vitamin D3
