Goiter doenst go so easily. It’s already an enlarged gland. So pls consult an endocrinologist or a general surgery consultant so that they will clarify if you would need any surgery for the reduction of goitre.

Prevent Goitre By Avoiding Goitrogenic Food!

Vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower and radish contain glucosinolates which are potential goitrogens. The consumption of large quantities of these food items containing goitrogenic substance may lead to the development of goitre by making iodine present in the food not available for body.

Goiter - How Can Homeopathy Handle It?

Goiter - How Can Homeopathy Handle It?

Abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland, located at the base of the neck, is known as goiter. Goiters usually do not cause pain, but if the size is too large it can cause coughing, breathing, and swallowing difficulty.

Goiter is caused by a deficiency of iodine in the diet. It may also be caused by hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. However, symptoms may depend on how the abnormality has developed. Though the symptoms of goiter are ambiguous because of the swelling at the base of the neck, there may also be other symptoms.

Symptoms:

People suffering from goiter don’t always show symptoms. If there are symptoms, it may include:

  1. Swelling at the base of the neck that does not cause any pain

  2. Tightness around the throat

  3. Coughing and hoarseness

  4. Difficulty in swallowing and breathing

Risk Factors:

Risk factors for Goitre include:

  1. Being Female: Women are more susceptible to thyroid disorders and are more likely to develop this disease.

  2. Age: Goiter mostly attacks after 40 years of age.

  3. Medical History: A family history of autoimmune disorders may enhance the risk.

  4. Certain Medications: Certain medicines like those for the heart as well as some psychiatric drugs increase the risk of goiter.

  5. Radiation Exposure: Risk of goiter is more in patients undergoing radiation treatment to the neck or chest area.

Treatment:

If the swelling is small and does not bother much, the doctor may decide to just wait and watch for changes, if any. In case of severe swelling, the doctor may go for:

  1. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Doctors resort to this treatment, especially if hypothyroidism is detected to be the source of goiter. If hyperthyroidism is found to be the source of goiter, doctors resort to other medicines.

  2. Radioactive iodine treatment is done to kill thyroid cells and shrink the gland. After this treatment, the patient may need to undergo hormone replacement therapy.

  3. Doctors may go for surgery and remove a part of the thyroid gland, if the goiter is large, causing swallowing and breathing problems. Surgery is also done to remove thyroid gland nodules and if there is evidence of cancer.

Despite all these treatment options it must be said that the treatment for goiter is extensive, expensive and often, lifelong. This calls for alternative treatment. Homeopathy has come up as a good alternative to traditional medicine.

Homeopathy For Goitre:

Homeopathy works by restoring the imbalance of hormones. Since imbalance of thyroid hormones is often responsible for goiter, homeopathy can work wonders for goiter. If the goiter is due to inflammation of the thyroid gland, homeopathy can work well since this branch of medicine has many medicines for curing inflammation of tissues. In fact, homeopathy can treat many thyroid gland problems. Homeopathic treatment can stimulate homeostasis in the human body and bring about a balance of systems. This is what one needs in treating most of the cases of goiter.

Upcoming Ailment - How To Track It?

Upcoming Ailment - How To Track It?

It is worth note that there are certain signs which show that you may get an illness. If these signs and symptoms are taken seriously then most probably you will be able to get rid of the illness a lot sooner.

Here are 5 indicators that you may acquire an illness sooner than you think.

1. Reduction in appetite

A reduction in appetite is never good. This is because a reduction in appetite is an indicator of many oncoming illnesses. These range from a simple cold all the way to a strep throat. Sometimes, a strep throat may also be the result of gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is when a virus enters your stomach and causes diarrhea as well as vomiting. It is worth note that a reduction in appetite during summer can be normal. However, feeling nauseous or detesting food can mean that you are going to have one of the illnesses listed above. 

2. Swollen neck glands
The neck glands are just below the jawbones. When these glands swell, it is a sign that you may be falling ill. Common illnesses which may occur when you have swollen neck glands include ear infections, the common cold as well as skin infections. The reason why neck glands usually swell is because when there is an infection, the dead cells and bacteria accumulate in the neck glands.

3. Fatigue
Fatigue is not when you are tired after the day. It is characterized by being tired all the time or after very little work done. When you face fatigue, it is a sign you may be falling ill.

4. Muscle aches
Muscle aches are a common symptom of flu. This is because when you have flu, antibodies are released. When these antibodies produce histamines and cytokines, they may travel to muscles and trigger the pain receptors.

5. Fever
A fever is the body's way of fighting infections. When you have a fever, it usually means the body is increasing its temperature to kill invading bacteria. Therefore, this is another way of knowing you have infections.
