Hypothyroidism which is the reason for Myxedema in adults and Cretinism in children, is the condition when Thyroid Hormones (T4 and T3) are secreted in lesser amounts in the body.
Hypothyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder mainly affecting women and the elderly. Almost 7.5% of women population in Australia suffer from Hypothyroidism
Ayurveda literature suggets that the Hypothyroidism occurs because of vitiated Vata, Pita humours and Meda (Fat) tissues; so the focus in Ayurveda is to balance these factors for healthy thyroid gland.
With Ayurveda Optimal thyroids functions may be obtain through diet, herbs, yoga, meditation and breathing exercise (pranayama)
The Ayurvedic treatment of hypothyroidism is aimed at controlling the symptoms and treating the underlying pathology of the disease to enhance thyroid functions.
Principle fundamental of Ayurveda natural remedies for hypothyroidism is to first clean the blocked channels from unwanted wasteproducts referred as ama in ayurveda. Also to balance Vata,Pita and kapha. At the same time various Ayurvedic preparations which are deepna (improve appitite), pacahana (improve digestion), teekshna (penetrating) in nature are administered to enhance the digestive fire at cellular level and restore metabolism.
To treat low thyroid naturally, all these herbs have been used traditionally from thousands of years. Selections of the herbs depend upon Ayurveda body type of the person, nature and severity of the symptoms.
