Homeopathy and Hypothyroidism

Homeopathy and Hypothyroidism

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 be become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
  9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, but 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.

Can you provide a diet chart for weightless for thyroid people? Which food should b avoided in case of hypothyroidism?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
There is no special diet for hypothyroidism. Only thing is certain things should be avoided as they affect thyroxine hormone action. So avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard and coffee. Plus should use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Also should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also should avoid high fat containing milk products, sweetened aerated drinks, highly processed food products. Plus a daily exercise of at least 1 hour is required.

Sanskarji, If your mother is taking Thyronorm tablet then she is having hypothyroidism. In this condition following things need to be avoided - Soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee, as these are affecting thyroxine action. She can consume other vegetables than those mentioned above. She should consume good deal of salads and fruits, Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Can take milk and milk products with low fat.

My HBa1c is 5.7 which I tested yesterday & it was 6.1 about 4 months before. Fasting sugar ranges b/w 115~120. I have lost 15 kg since last one year. I am taking 500 mg glyciphage twice daily. Also, my stomach is bad (constipation) for 8-9 months. My sleep is also not fully relaxing for many years. But, last one year or so has been really bad interns of weight loss & continuous constipation. I tried homemade remedies but not much relief. Please advice if my sugar medication is the cause of my weight loss & how do I get rid of bad stomach which is troubling me the most. I am thinking of castor oil even to have some relief. Thanks in advance.

yes your sugar medication might be the cause of weight loss. for constipation take plenty of water. take raw fruits and vegetables like ,cucumber, cabbage, apples,sprouts,orange,pear,watermelon. chew your food properly. take isabgol husk with plenty of water. go for long walks.exercise daily. take cremaffin /lactulose syrup if above measures do not work.

I am having diabetes since 2 years, fasting sugar 130, pp- 190, not on any medication yet, can I have black tea no other ailment.

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hyderabad
Black tea is perfectly fine. Go ahead. Better consult a doctor regarding medicines. Monitor your sugar levels regularly if it goes down then its okay. Else you will have to take medicines. Currently you are beyond the diabetes borderline. If you eat proper diet and remain fit, you can bring it down.
