Thyroid, a small pear-shaped gland located just below your neck does a lot many things than you ever knew it does. It can control your weight; regulate your energy level, make your mood swing and might also create difficulty for you to conceive if you are planning for a baby!
There were times when it was unusual for young women to have thyroid. It was an ailment that worried women above 40. However, according to research estimates, almost 30-35 per cent of women belonging to younger age group are affected with thyroid today.
So, how would you know that there is some problem with our thyroid gland?
LOOK OUT FOR THESE SYMPTOMS
Both overactive and under-active thyroid produces numerous symptoms of thyroid problems including:
- Increased sensitivity to cold
- Thinning and/or falling out of sides of eyebrows
- Puffy, swollen face and dull facial expressions
- Hoarse voice and slow speech
- Joint pain
- Weight gain (in Hypothyroidism )
- Weight Loss ( in Hyperthyroidism )
- Ear problems
- Depression, mood swings
- Memory problems
- Coarse, dry hair and/or thinning of hair
- Hair loss
- Dry skin, brittle nails.
- Inability to conceive
- Decreased libido
- Heat intolerance
- Difficulty in breathing
- Increased bowel movements
- Light or absent menstrual periods
The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition where the body makes antibodies that destroy parts of the thyroid gland. Surgical removal and certain medications (e.g., amiodarone, lithium) can also cause hypothyroidism.
Other causes of hypothyroidism include:
- Pituitary problems
- Hypothalamus problems
- Iodine deficiency (affects nearly 2 billion people worldwide)
Some babies are born with hypothyroidism - this is called congenital hypothyroidism.
There are different causes of hyperthyroidism. Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. This condition occurs when the immune system produces an antibody that stimulates the entire thyroid gland; this leads to over activity and high levels of thyroid hormones.
Another form of hyperthyroidism is called toxic nodular goiter or toxic thyroid adenoma. Adenomas, abnormal nodules of tissue in the thyroid, constantly produce thyroid hormones even when they are not needed.
Secondary hyperthyroidism is caused when the pituitary gland makes too much TSH, leading to constant stimulation of the thyroid gland. A pituitary tumour may cause TSH levels to rise. More rarely, the pituitary gland becomes insensitive to thyroid hormones, no longer responding to high levels.
Another possible cause of hyperthyroidism is a condition called thyroiditis. This condition occurs when the thyroid gland becomes inflamed. Depending on the type of thyroiditis, this may lead to temporary hyperthyroidism that might be followed by hypothyroidism.
Homeopathy helps in alleviating the symptoms associated with the condition. Moreover, homeopathy works at a deeper level to bring deviations of immunity back to normalcy and to restore the harmony of the body.
Research-proven homeopathic treatment offers medicines which stimulate the gland, enabling it to secrete normal levels of hormones.
It has to be understood that homeopathic treatment aims at stimulating the Thyroid gland to produce its own thyroid hormones. External supply of the hormone is not the treatment but an arrangement. We are trying to correct the internal imbalance. This is possible in in many cases if not all. If achieved successfully, a lifelong need for thyroid supplement may not require.
