Hypothyroidism And Its Homeopathic Treatment

Hypothyroidism And Its Homeopathic Treatment

 

Hormones are named from the greek word HARMON-''meaning to urge or excite'' because they were first discovered to play a role in hunger sex flight or fight response.


Hormones serve within the body as invaluable messengers, governors of development and regulators of metabolism.
TH, found in all chordate animals is the only major biochemical molecule known to incorporate IODINE, a substance common in the sea but rare on land
IODINE is essential to the structure of TH and iodine deficiency in the leading cause of disorders that may result in HYPOTHYROIDISM, a condition characterised by abnormally low thyroid hormone production. There are many disorders that result in hypothyroidism. These disorders may directly or indirectly involve the thyroid gland. Because thyroid harmone affects growth, development and many cellular processes, inadequate thyroid hormone has widespread consequences for the body

 

CAUSES OF HYPOTHYROIDISM
-chronic autoimmune thyroiditis(Hashimato's Thyroiditis), a form of thyroid inflammation caused by damage to the thyroid tissue.Damage occurs because immune cells which usually fight off infection and colds attack the body's own thyroid tissue instead.

 

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES-
rheumatoid arthritis
addison's disease
diabetes
vitiligo

 

AGE-As age progresses hypothyroidism is common particularly in women
SURGERY-removal of thyroid gland
RADIOACTIVE IODINE THERAPY
SECONDARY HYPOTHYROIDISM -egdiseases of pituitary glandor hypothalamus may cause thyroid harmone deficiency.

 

TH is produced by the thyroid a butterfly shaped gland found behind the larynx in response to TSH. (Thyroid stimulating harmone which is released by the pituitary gland).
TH exists in two major forms -
LEVOTHYROXINE(T4)-with 4 iodine atoms per molecule is an inactive form that can be converted to
T3(TRIIODOTHYRONINE) with 3 iodine atoms per molecule is eight times more effective than T4. It is converted from T4 in the thyroid, brain, liver, blood stream and various tissues of the body.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR HYPOTHYROIDISM
Doses
There are excellent remedies in homeopathy for the patients suffering from hypothyroidism symptoms.The homeopathic remedies are prepared from a wide range of substances such as the vegetables, herb, mineral, chemicals and animal products in extremely minute. The homeopathic remedy selected will be based on all the symptoms of the patient including physical, mental and emotional states and family history of the patient.

Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body's own immune system and offer a long lasting cure rather than giving temporary relief 


There are two ways to treat hypothyroidism-
Supplement body with external thyroid hormone
Administer medicines that could stimulate the thyroid gland
The conventional method is to supplement the hormone. But the problem here is that the body gets used to it and stops producing its own hormone in desired quantity.


In case of homeopathic treatment it tries to stimulate the gland to make it produce normal production of hormone.

Very good Article on Hypothyroidism. I also usually suggest pressing of pressure points for thyroid gland on the hands (the mound under the thumb on palm on both hands), which activates the thyroid gland.  Also since you mentioned that pituitary gland malfunction results in malfunction of thyroid gland, we can also suggest pressing the thumb (top portion on both hands) to activate pituitary gland. And so also the liver portion (down the mound of right hand little finger) of the hand. These are in addition to the homeo remedy administered. Thanks for the article Dr Rashmi.
