Thyroid gland is the butterfly-shaped organ found in the neck, and it is an important part of our endocrine system. The endocrine system is in charge of secreting hormones, which in turn impact our overall health and well-being. That being said, our thyroid gland is directly responsible for many crucial functions and processes like your blood pressure, your heart rate, metabolism, your energy levels (how food is processed into energy) and growth in children. Thyroid gland is the queen of all glands, and if it’s malfunctioning, sooner or later - you’ll know it.
Two most important hormones produced by thyroid gland are triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Many people struggle with thyroid gland due to these two hormones. There are generally two main problems that can happen due to the thyroid gland malfunction: hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) mainly affects women, and it happens when the thyroid gland produces less hormones than it is needed. The symptoms include: fatigue, feeling more cold than usually, gaining weight, constipation, dry skin, weakness, constant sleepiness, depression etc.
Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) affects both men and women, but in more prevalent in men usually. It happens when too much of the hormone thyroxine. Hyperthyroidism can speed up your body's metabolism, which can cause sudden weight loss, fast or irregular heartbeat, excessive sweating, as well as anxiety and irritability.
The problem with traditional medications
People are usually prescribed heavy drugs and thyroid or anti-thyroid medications, radioactive iodine, beta blockers or even surgery in some cases.
The problem with these medications is that they are usually addictive and you have to take them your entire life, especially for underactive thyroid. Oftentimes women have to take out their thyroid gland after years and years of medications which usually contain the hormones that the thyroid gland has stopped producing.
The use of these medications makes the gland lazy, and gradually strips her of her function which is to produce hormones. So, instead of stimulating the gland to continue producing hormones, the medications are actually making the gland redundant.
If you’re afraid that relying solely on medications can make your problem even worse in the long run, you’re at the right spot. Ayurveda, as one of the oldest holistic healing systems in the world, can help you get to the core of problem, naturally. According to Ayurveda, often the main reasons for thyroid dysfunction are lifestyle choices and diet that cause the imbalance in the digestive tract and metabolism. For example, work related stress and hectic lifestyle can trigger the imbalance between agni and the weakness of the dosha. Everything is interconnected, so it is difficult to pinpoint the reasons because every patient is unique. But generally, with thyroid disorders, when kapha dosha is is disbalance this can negatively affect the ojas. Ojas, in turn, affect the entire immune system and attack the thyroid gland which ultimately makes the thyroid gland malfunction.
Ayurveda can help you treat your thyroid naturally, without any side effects and addiction. Healthy lifestyle and natural Ayurvedic treatment can help you get rid of your problems and addictive drugs once and for all. Modern medicine doesn’t really help patients, because it doesn’t get to the root of the problems. It only masks the symptoms, which doesn’t actually solve anything.
