What are thyroid disorders and how homeopathy can help to get relief

Thyroid disease can be classified into two main types: hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). However, several conditions can lead to them all.

Hypothyroidism -In hypothyroidism, your thyroid gland is underactive. This disorder arises from insufficient thyroid hormone production by the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormones are vital for controlling metabolism and other body processes.

Hypothyroidism can be caused by:

  • iodine deficiency

  • surgical removal of the thyroid gland

  • radiation therapy to the neck area

  • Feeling extra cold

  • Constipation

  • Decrease sweating

  • Heavy and irregular periods

Hyperthyroidism - Hyperthyroidism is the opposite of hypothyroidism. It happens when the thyroid gland overproduces thyroid hormones. This overproduction can result in a variety of symptoms, including an accelerated metabolism.

Hyperthyroidism can be caused by:

  • Autoimmune disease

  • excessive iodine intake

  • Nodules

  • Thyroiditis (temporary)

  • Overmedication

Can homeopathy treat thyroid disorders?

Homeopathy is a comprehensive medical system that addresses an individual's physical, mental, and emotional needs. It works on the principle of "like cures like," in which the body's natural healing response is triggered by highly diluted substances that produce symptoms in healthy individuals.

Homeopathy's approach to thyroid disorders centers on balancing the thyroid gland and treating the underlying causes of the imbalance. Rather than using a one-size-fits-all method, homeopathic remedies are selected based on each individual's particular symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies for thyroid disorders:

Iodine - Iodine is frequently used in homeopathy to treat thyroid conditions, especially hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) caused by an iodine deficiency. Iodine supplements should only be self-administered with proper medical supervision, though, as excessive iodine can also be harmful.

Calcium carbonate - This calcium carbonate remedy is a popular treatment for hypothyroidism, particularly in people who have cold, sluggish feelings and may also be experiencing problems with weight gain.

Lycopodium- Lycopodium is occasionally advised for hypothyroidism sufferers who also have thyroid symptoms and digestive problems, such as gas and bloating.

Thyroidinum Drop - This remedy is thought to support thyroid function; it is made from the thyroid glands of sheep or pigs. It is frequently advised for both hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism.

Natrum Muriaticum - This remedy, derived from sodium chloride, is frequently used for emotional disturbances like anxiety or depression in people with thyroid disorders.

Sepia -  Sepia is recommended for individuals with thyroid disorders who experience hormonal imbalances, irregular menstrual cycles, and other related symptoms.

Fucus Vesiculosus - This remedy is often prescribed for thyroid conditions, especially hypothyroidism, and is made from a particular type of seaweed.

Thyroid disorder symptoms can be effectively relieved by using these homeopathic remedies.
