Thyroid medicines are known to interfere with conventional medicines taken for other diseases and are also known to trigger certain diseases.

  • Antibiotics and antifungal drugs
  • Antidepressants
  • Birth control pills
  • Anticlotting drugs
  • Cholesterol-lowering drugs

Benefits of Homoeopathic Medicines for Thyroid Diseases

Homoeopathy helps to produce thyroid hormone naturally by stimulating the immune system and helps in better functioning of the thyroid gland.

Homoeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body’s own healing capacity by encouraging the body to reactivate hormone secretions.

Homeopathy is free from any side-effects.

Stress causes hormonal disturbances in the body like thyroid problems s and is very effectively treated with homeopathy.

Homoeopathy is a mind-body medicine. Homoeopathy treats not only the physical complaints, but also targets the mind and gently restores mind-body equilibrium- thus it treats the patient as a whole.

If a patient is taking conventional medicine for hypothyroid, they can continue taking the medicine with homoeopathic medicine.

Homoeopathic medication does not interfere with the absorption of conventional medicine and does not reduce its efficacy.

Slowly and steadily when the thyroid hormones come to normalcy the conventional medicine can be tapered off and the person can continue with homoeopathy to avoid recurrence.

Lifestyle plan for healthy, lustrous and beautiful hair…

A calm attitude, good sleep, healthy relationships, balanced diet and a good hair care regime. Never abuse your hair with powerful colour treatments or amateur parlour procedures that may cause damage to the hair. Hair is a plant and requires a good quality manure to help it grow well and be healthy. Intake of nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, flaxseeds will help to nourish your hair and keep them healthy. Trimming hair from time to time helps to remove split ends and managing hair becomes easier. The moment you notice hair loss, dandruff or any other scalp problems, consult a professional trichologist without delay.
