I am Dr. Sanket Gupta. I am a practicing homeopathic consultant at AKG’s Oviham’s medical centers and we have our clinics at Moti Bagh and Pritam Pura.
Today I would like to talk about a disease caller hyperthyroidism. Again a very common disease. A very common endocrine disorder. One of the most common endocrine disorders. And as the name suggests, hypo means less, so what happens is the thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones in a very less quantity. So the thyroid hormones t3 and t4 are released very less and there are only two major reasons. The first major reason being thyroid gland not functioning properly which happens when there is usually lack of iodine or deficiency of iodine as you must have seen a lot of people develop quite a huge growth around their necks. That is goiters and that is due to deficiency of iodine. The second cause being pituitary gland which releases less of thyroid stimulation hormone which in turn actually activates and stimulates the thyroid gland to release the thyroid hormones so these are the two major causes and clinically what we find in the investigate the findings of the thyroid profile, we find thyroid stimulating hormone is usually in, in people with hyperthyroidism and the t3 and t4 levels are generally low. On the other hand major reason could be autoimmune thyroiditis and this autoimmune thyroiditis means when the cells of your own body are working against your own body cells are working again your own receptors, own glands and preventing it from stimulating the thyroid hormones normally. In this case we need to get anti TPO and thyroid antibody, thyroid binding antibody globulins to test it. Homeopathy fortunately has a very very good result and very good effective treatment in both the cases be it autoimmune disorder or be the classical hyperthyroidism which we see in generally most of the cases. Symptomatically patients start you, you know the disease dose sets in quite early but the symptoms start manifesting very late in the life and symptoms like weight gain symptoms like dry skin, fatigue, weakness. Breathlessness even at times, slow pulse rate, falling of hair, irregular periods, constipation, depression, that all guiding towards hyperthyroidism so one thing is by if there is iodine deficiency It can always be supplemented by taking iodized salt which we use these days and that prevents the formation of goiter. The second thing being a secondary hyperthyroidism where it is generally due to the lack of our homeless, due to the inefficiency of the thyroid gland. What home, here the role of homeopathy is very important. What homeopathy does is it tries to only stimulate the thyroid gland to release the thyroid hormones properly tries to maintain that homeostasis tries to maintain that balance. It is not done we are doing giving something from outside which will you know, release the chemical and work on its own when the thyroid gland would be sitting pretty on its side, No. what we do with homeopathy, homeopathy medicines do they stimulates the thyroid gland to function on its own to fight on its own and this is how thyroid is completely, all the higher disorders are completely and completely curable with homeopathy. There is no need to be on lifelong medication for hypothyroidism or even hyperthyroidism per se. even at times when people are given anti thyroid drugs for hyperthyroidism. They get converted into hypothyroidism due to the medication, over medication. So there are lots of factors which we tend to see over our clinics all of them are taken into account and accordingly treatment is given. But definitely, homeopathy has a huge role to play in public health when it comes to hypothyroidism and is a beautiful medicine of treatment, treatment of medicine without any side effects and absolutely curable for thyroid disorders.
