Thyroid gland situated in the neck controls metabolism of the body. If it gets overactive, it causes Hyper-thyroidism. If it gets underactive, it causes Hypo-thyroidism.
Hypothyroidism may be caused by problems within the thyroid gland that causes insufficient circulation of the thyroid hormone. Symptoms show a decrease in metabolism, with the slowing of mental and physical activity. Patients may experience a variety of differing symptoms such as sensitivity to cold, dryness of the skin, Constipation, Anorexia, Angina pain, Anemia and disordered menstrual function. Hypothyroidism treatment is effective. It is a combination of herbal medicines, which is prepared according to the individual health aspects of the patient, along with personalized diet and lifestyle recommendations.
The prime cause of Hypothyroidism is the deficiency of Iodine. In many cases, this disease is caused by pituitary or hypothalamic disease or certain medications. Additionally, there can be other causes diagnosed during consultation, all of which are considered when providing precise, root-cause Hypothyroidism treatment.
Ayurveda considers ksheern-dhatwagni (low metabolic fire element) to be the root cause of hypothyroidism.
