My double chin, dry hair and under eye bags were enough to call me Hypothyroid…

I am 40years old now. God has blessed me with 2 wonderful children. I gradually realized that I did not look the way I used even after having 2 kids. I had developed a double chin, my hair had become very dry and brittle and I had under eye bags. I also got tired very easily without doing much physical work. I was feeling like an old helpless lady. This bothered me a lot and I visited my regular homoeopathic doctor and shared with him my concern and without wasting time, he advised me to check my thyroid hormones. I was detected with Hypothyroid and he prescribed homoeopathic medicines with advice on exercise and diet. Slowly and steadily, I started feeling better and once again was back to my normal self.

Hypothyroid occurs when the thyroid gland fails to produce enough thyroid hormones. Hypothyroid is more common in women than men and the incidences increases with age. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (thyroid gland enlarges and forms goitre), Thyroid destruction following secondary to radioactive surgery, Severe iodine deficiency and Stress are known to cause Hypothyroid. A routine blood test for thyroid hormones would confirm the diagnosis.

Look out for any of the following symptoms for confirmation of Hypothyroid

  • Unexplained Weight gain
  • Puffiness/ Swelling of face, eyes and feet
  • Constipation
  • Sluggishness
  • Fatigue; Lack of Energy
  • Dry skin
  • Depression
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Impaired memory
  • Hair thinning/ Hair loss/ Dry Hair
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods.
  • Slower heart rate

Healing with Homoeopathy

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 which 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.

 A complete recovery is possible in most cases with homoeopathy. Hypothyroid is a known triggering factor for patchy hair loss and homoeopathy treats thyroid problems very effectively.

Self help for Hypothyroid

Regular checkups are a must and report the changes, if any, to your doctor. Caffeinated drinks and dairy products should be avoided. Regular exercise helps to reduce stress and a high fibre diet often helps in maintaining thyroid function and preventing constipation. Apply a good moisturizing cream to combat dryness caused due to hypothyroid. Consume fruits, dry-fruits, green vegetables, beans and legumes in adequate amounts to combat nutritional deficiencies. Any nutritional supplement should be taken under the guidance of your doctor.
