Hypothyroidism - Ayurvedic Remedies To Help You Manage It!

Hypothyroidism - Ayurvedic Remedies To Help You Manage It!

According to Ayurveda, imbalance or disequilibrium in the doshas is the main cause of hypothyroidism. The Kapha dosha i.e. the dosha responsible for body fluids and lubrication, and Pitta dosha i.e. the dosha responsible for fire and water body humors, are vitiated. Lifestyle and diet discrepancies further promote imbalances in the doshas. Hypothyroidism is categorized under the Yapya diseases which reoccur once you cease to take the treatment.

Treatment:

  • It is essential to consume adequate quantities of milk.
  • Coconut oil is one of the best remedies for a hypothyroid patient, since it increases slow and sluggish metabolism. Coconut contains MCFAs i.e. medium chain fatty acids and MTCs i.e. Medium chain triglycerides in abundance which help the metabolism be revved up.

Remedies

  1. Consume a mixture of Indian gooseberry i.e. amla and churnam with honey, daily before breakfast. One of the main causes of Hypothyroidism is insufficient amount of iodine.
  2. Drinking the juice acquired from jalakumbhi i.e. Pistia Stratiotes everyday in dosage ranging from 11gm to 22gm increases the iodine content and helps treat hypothyroidism.
  3. Avoid stale and fermented food, late night dinner and day sleeping.
  4. Exercise and meditation is must.

Almost all the metabolic processes in a person's body are influenced by the hormones produced by the thyroid gland. The most common types of thyroid diseases caused due to dysfunctional thyroid glands, such as thyroid nodules, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroiditis and thyroid cancer

Panchakarma treatment

Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma treatment comprising of Virechan, Niruha and Anuvasan basti, Nasyam along with the medicines to treat hypothyroidism. These purifying procedures are used in cases where the body has accumulated excess toxins and needs purification. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Both diabetes and hypothyroid are different problems and are due to different cause hence you have to control both accordingly. Look into the reaso n why his blood sugar is not controlled. He should avoid sugar, jagary,honey, sweets,sweet fruits, do some regular exercise like walking, yoga ect. Take medicines regularly as advised by doctor. And get his blood sugar testing frequently to know about the control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Honey contains sucrose which is same as sugar. If person with diabetes takes it then it is like eating sugar. There will be a rapid increase in the blood glucose level, depending on how much honey is taken. Plus I have no idea as what advantage honey has in "ulcer like condition" Hence I am of te opinion it should be avoided. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should have been on thyroxine hormone, as tsh is too high, showing severe hypothyroidism. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Do not use food made of refined flour like maida. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (80 kgs). Your bmi is 34.87 kgs showing grade 2 obesity. Most important is immediate tsh reduction. Thanks for the question.

WHAT IS INFERTILITY ??

According to world health organisation (WHO) infertility- is a couple's failure to achieve pregnancy after 12 months or more time period of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.

Causes for both:-


Females:-

  • Pcos
  • Follopian tubal block
  • Unovulatory cycle
  • Pelvic inflammatory diseases
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Advanced maternal age (above 35)

Males:-

  • Azoospermia - zero sperm count
  • Oligospermia - low sperm count
  • Asthenospermia - low motility of sperms
  • Low libido - failure to achieve proper excitement.


Males and females both are equally responsible for infertility.

Do testicular examination regular from childhood for undescended testis & testicular atrophy

If any problems related to menstual cycle / periods do consult doctor before condition leads to infertility.

Sexual intercourse should be in ovulation period from day 10 to day 18 of period only. It will increase chances of getting pregnant.

Consult doctor if failure to achieve pregnancy within 6 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.

Is there any research going on in any part of the world to cure hashimoto thyroiditis?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Is there any research going on in any part of the world to cure hashimoto thyroiditis?
Research is going on and no conclusive result is obtained so far One specific area of interest is selenium supplementation, which has been shown to increase the conversion of T4 to T3 while simultaneously reducing thyroid antibody levels responsible for the autoimmune attack. While initial work appears promising, the research is far from conclusive, and this approach needs considerably more study, according to write-ups of different studies in the European Journal of Endocrinology, the Journal of Endocrinology, Thyroid and the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Still, these investigations are good news for those patients seeking different treatment options.

I am 35 years old. I am suffering from thyroid. How can I reduce weight? Can you suggest some medicine also?
lybrate-user, If you are having hypothyroid then it is essential to control it effectively with TSH maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If not then efforts to reduce weight will not succeed. So first check the TSH level. You have grade 3 obesity, with 41.79 kgs/M2 BMI. This is a very tough situation. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kgs. So your diet should be based on that weight. Plus you will have to do a considerable amount of exercise daily. Dietary restrictions have to be very strictly adhered to. Caloric intake has to drop down to around 100 to 1200 calories per day. This can be very tough to sustain. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if well in control with adequate dosage of thyroxine, then there will be no problem in getting pregnant. However, when one is on treatment it is necessary to maintain TSH between 3 to4 mU/L for bring free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Therefore with TSH 67 mU/L, you will have to increase the dosage of thyroxine by 12.5 mcg per day and then check TSH level after 6 weeks to see if desired level is reached or not. For proper ovulation and getting prgnent it is necessary to maintain TSH < 2 mU/L. That is when you are considering getting conceived. Thanks.
