Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs.

I would like to inform you that hyperthyroidism is 100% curable in classical homeopathic treatment. Again you are taking hormonal therapy for your fertility, you never get cure by manipulating your hormonal level. Your periods has been delayed due to your hormonal therapy that you have done. If you really want to get cure both of your problems, go for homeopathy. Classical homeopathic treatment means single medicine (simillimum) for patient's complete suffering. I mean to say that a homeopath will prescribe one / single homeopathic medicine that can restore your health by removing thyroid disorder as well as infertility. For treatment you may search for a good homeopath in your local or you may book for online treatment from my Lybrate profile.

Thyroid Gland Dysfunction And Homeopathic Treatments!
Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in your body. Hypothyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland of your body is unable to produce the thyroid hormones like T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Hypothyroidism can occur due to the inflammation of the thyroid gland or as a result of previous thyroid treatments, where a major portion of the thyroid producing cells has been removed. Hypothyroidism is more common in women. But, it can develop in any person irrespective of age or sex.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are as follows:

1. Fatigue
2. Increased feeling of cold
3. Dryness of skin
4. Constipation
5. Depression
6. Obesity
7. Increased blood cholesterol level
8. Your muscles may become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, it may vary from person to person. Hypothyroidism is a very common problem and homeopathy offers a very safe, painless and effective treatment for hypothyroidism.

The following are few of the homeopathic remedies for hyperthyroidism:

1. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is advised to people suffering from obesity and increased sensitiveness to cold temperature.

2. Sepia Officinalis: This medicine is suggested to people suffering from irregular menstrual cycle and increased sensitivity to cold.

3. Nux Vomica: Nux vomica is prescribed when the patient shows symptom of depression.

4. Lycopodium Clavatum: This medicine is given to people having gastric troubles or encountering excessive hair fall.

Along with these, there are various other medicines such as Iodium, thyroidinum, spongia, lycopus and lapis albus. But it is highly recommended for you to visit a homeopathic physician to receive correct advice before taking any medication by yourself.

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism a 4 years ago which after 2 years transformed into hypo. I am on thyronorm 62.5 mg which I take first thing in the morning. I have recently started having morning leaf powder 1 tea spoon but only after 1 hr of taking thyronorm. I have come across information that the morning aids thyroid function too. Is it ok for me to take it?

Hello, thanks for the query. Madam most important treatment for hypothyroidism is taking adequate dosage of levothyroxine, as your gland is not producing the necessary quantity of that hormone. On taking adequate dosage of thyroxine, tsh is maintained around 3 to 4 mu/l, at which level all the symptoms are in check. Whether taking some other supplements is helpful or not is a question mark. If you are finding it beneficial please do take. But please do not stop or reduce thyroxine dosage on your own. Keep checkin tsh levels periodically. Thanks.

I'm 24 years old. I've been struggling with an unstable thyroid condition. When I have tested my thyroid profile in the year 2014 tsh was on the (5.8 hypothyroidism) and I have taken medicine (thyronorm 12.5 mcg) for 1 year (approx.) with the doctor's advise. While I was in the medication tsh level was normal and after that, I have stopped taking the medicine. In the year 2016, i’ve got my thyroid test done and the tsh level was on the lower side (0.03 hyperthyroidism). I have consulted the doctor and advised me to reduce my weight (as I was overweight) and asked me to change my diet plan and he did not suggest any medicine. Later I have not taken care of myself and did not take any medicine for 2 years. In the year 2018, I have got my test done and this time tsh again went to the higher side (8.2) so I have consulted the doctor and he has advised me to use thyronorm 25 mcg for 1 month so I have I have used it for one month and got my tsh test done and this time tsh level was normal. Doctor asked me to continue the same medicine for the next 2 months and I have used the medicine for 2 months and got the test done after 2 months and this time tsh level went to 0.01. I consulted the doctor and asked me to stop using the medicine and to wait for 1 and a half month. After one and a half month (feb-2019), I have done the test again but still tsh level in 0.01. Please suggest to me what I have to do and explain to me about my health condition. As my doctor suggested me to have a thyroid scan and to use medicine for hyperthyroidism later the scan results. I've been doing the gym, workouts and proper diet and I have lost about 20 kgs in 4 months and now bmi is at the correct level.

Repeated testing of tsh is not needed and the reading of 0.01 need not create any panic and treatment is the reason for reduction of tsh .which is expected from the treatment and is normal. However it will be fine to get advice from an endocrinologist or physician in your area.

Hypothyroidism Vs Hyperthyroidism - Know The Difference!

Hypothyroidism Vs Hyperthyroidism - Know The Difference!
Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland do everything from maintaining your heart rate to regulating your body temperature to controlling your body weight.

Millions of people worldwide suffer from thyroid dysfunction and several don't know about it. This is primarily because people don't tend to link the common symptoms first with a thyroid disease. Some people suffer from mood swings, trouble with memory, weight gain or fatigue -all of which they look upon individually as a problem and hence not piecing together the puzzle of their real medical condition. Here are a few insights that'll help you cope:

How does the thyroid gland work?

About 85% of the hormone produced by our thyroid gland is T4, which is an inactive form of the hormone. After T4 is made, a small amount of it is converted into T3, which is the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is then converted to free T3 or reverse T3. It is the free T3 that forms the base of thyroid functions.

What is hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism, or an under-active thyroid, accounts for 90% of all thyroid imbalances. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism develop slowly, often over a number of years which is why it is often missed from regular treatment charts. For instance, fatigue and weight gain are often attributed to stress, lifestyle changes and natural ageing process. But as time goes by, some of the symptoms show a higher level of manifestation like muscle weakness, elevated blood cholesterol, thinning hair, puffy face, hoarse voice and slowed heart rate.

If left untreated, hypothyroidism may lead to goiter (enlarged thyroid), increased memory problems, low blood pressure, decreased breathing and in extreme cases, unresponsiveness and coma.

This disease may also occur in newborns, infants and children. Symptoms include excessive sleepiness, poor muscle tone and constipation. It is important to diagnose and treat it early as in severe cases it may lead to mental and / or physical retardation.

In children and teens, it can result in stunted growth, and delayed puberty.

What is hyperthyroidism?

It's the opposite of hypothyroidism, which means in this case the thyroid overproduces hormones. Common symptoms include lack of sleep, weakness, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood pressure and hand tremors. While genetics is partially responsible for it, it is also triggered by autoimmune disorder. Hyperthyroidism can be treated with medication, radioactive iodine (not the first or best choice as it harms white cells too) and surgery. Keeping a focus on your calcium and sodium intake is crucial to curb the disorder.

Treatment:

Conventional treatments rely mainly on drugs and surgery. Alternative treatments involve diet and lifestyle changes. Taking multi-vitamins, going gluten free, getting a good night sleep, and reducing stress is all said to help heal your thyroid gradually.
