These days, symptoms like fatigue, unexpected weight gain, intolerance to cold, muscle aches and cramps, poor appetite or Goiter (enlarged thyroid gland) are very common among men and women. If you are having any of these symptoms, there are high chances that you might be suffering from Hypothyroidism, commonly known as ‘Thyroid.’ According to Ayurveda, the thyroid is located in the 6th tissue level or Majjadhatu and butterfly gland is controlled by Pitta Dosha. Pitta is responsible for all of the metabolic actions carried out by the thyroid gland.
Thyroid hormones control most metabolic processes in the body. They are produced by the thyroid gland located in the anterior (front) part of the neck. These hormones affect many organs and biochemical systems in your body.
In Allopathy, Hypothyroidism is explained as Hashimoto’s disease which is an auto immune condition where your immune system attacks your thyroid. The thyroid gland is a part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body’s functions.
As per Ayurveda, blockage in the Rasavaha Srotas as pituitary and thyroid and any other functions are part of Rasavaha system. Aama and Kapha blockage with Ojas imbalance creates under-active thyroid.
Initially, when TSH is higher but T3 T4 is good, doctor would always follow wait and watch approach. If you start Ayushakti’s ayurvedic treatment for thyroid at this stage, you can keep the thyroid function active, so that you will not need take any thyroid medication.
