Before suggesting any remedy or treatment we must need to understand what Hypothyroid or Hypothyroidism means. What are its symptoms and common causes? A person is hypothyroid if his thyroid gland cannot produce enough thyroid hormone to keep the body running under normal conditions, in other words too little thyroid hormone in the blood or can be characterized as, low thyroid hormone production.
Why it happens so? The thyroid is a small gland located in the neck producing hormones that help in regulating the body’s metabolic rate. It directly affects every cell of the body and maintains the functioning of our reproductive system, brain, heart, bones, and digestive system.
Thyroid disorders directly have a significant impact on your energy level and mood. It makes people feel sluggish, tired, and sometimes depressed. It can also cause problems like anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. You can gain weight and unable to manage and tolerate the cold temperatures. Dry skin, constipation, puffy face, hoarseness, elevated blood cholesterol level, pain, stiffness, swelling in joints, irregular menstrual periods, and thinning of hair all forms the basis for hypothyroid.
In allopath, their isn’t complete cure for Hypothyroid. A person has to take levothyroxin (a hormone produced by thyroid) for his/her whole life. But in homeopathy we treat the thyroid gland (cause of its sluggishness) so it works properly in the body. You don’t have to take medication for whole life in homeopathy, even though symptoms don’t get treated instead of taking allopathic medication. People still suffer with fatigue, sad mood etc.
Over a period of time homeopaths have achieved a great success rate in the treatment of hypothyroid without any side effects. Homeopathy also controls the symptoms of the illness and helps in overcoming complications of the underactive thyroid. The homeopathy treatment varied from individual to individual keeping in view his prevailing diagnostics and previous medical history and treatment.
Homeopathy treats hypothyroid normally with medicines and diet supplements. The medicines given are Calc-Phos, Calc-iod, Thyroidinum, Spong, Lycopus, Iodium, etc. The diet supplements include Cholestyramine, Calcium supplements, Aluminum hydroxide, and iron supplements.
