The thyroid gland which is located in the front of the neck produces 2 important hormones T3 and T4 which are essential for life. Their production in turn is dependent on having adequate levels of another hormone released from the brain called TSH. The blood levels of these hormones are measured to determine how well your thyroid gland is functioning. Multiple thyroid disorders can occur when there is a dysfunction in any of the hormonal production or if there are any intrinsic problems like inflammation in the thyroid gland itself. Common problems are:
- Hypothyroidism – Occurs when there is a deficiency of thyroid hormones. Typical symptoms are lethargy, dullness, weight gain, personality changes, constipation, intolerance to cold, dry skin, and menstrual irregularities in women.
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis – Is a chronic auto immune disease of the thyroid gland. It occurs when the immune system starts to attack the thyroid gland and produces antibodies against one’s own tissues.
- Hyperthyroidism – Occurs when the serum levels of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 are elevated. Symptoms usually experienced in this condition are weight loss, increased heart rate, palpitations, tremors, fatigue, swelling in front of the neck of the thyroid gland etc.
I have seen Classical Homeopathy work wonders for Thyroid disorders. The treatment is individualized for the person rather than having one treatment for all. Once I select the right remedy for you, the remedy works by stimulating your own body to heal itself. The body when stimulated in the right direction is capable of normalizing the levels of the hormones. Usually you first start to observe improvement in your symptoms and sense of well being before there are positive changes in your thyroid function test reports. Our treatment is non- invasive, non-toxic, and the effects are long lasting in such chronic conditions.
