Reverse Hypothyroidism and avoid the risk of Obesity, infertility, or heart problems
Successfully treated 50000 plus cases over the past 33 years.
The Thyroid gland is one of the main powerhouses in the body.
The thyroid hormone is responsible for providing energy to nearly every organ in your body.
It controls functions such as your heartbeats and digestive functions.
Without the right amount of thyroid hormones, your body’s natural functions begin to slow down.
Dysfunctions of the Thyroid gland cause many thyroid disorders such as hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, Hashimoto’s, or grave disease.
Statistics say that more than 20 million Americans live with a thyroid disorder – many of them are unaware of it as it does not show any symptoms in the early stage.
What is hypothyroid disease?
It may not show important symptoms in the early stage.
Over time, untreated hypothyroidism can cause various health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility, and heart disease.
What are the signs and symptoms of Hypothyroidism?
In most cases, there may not be noticeable symptoms in the early stages, you may think, these are just signs of aging. The main symptoms are1:
- Being nervous or irritable, mood swings.
- Chronic Fatigue or muscle weakness, hand tremors, joint pain
- Heat intolerance, Trouble sleeping
- Rapid and irregular heartbeat
- Frequent bowel movements or diarrhea
- Weight gain
- Dry skin, constipation, hair fall
- Goiter – enlarged Thyroid- swollen neck
How Hypothyroidism Affects the body? Why does Hypothyroidism occur?
- In response to hyperthyroidism remedy, People who create too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) are usually treated with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medicines. The purpose of these medicines is to get thyroid function back to normal. But sometimes, fixing hyperthyroidism can end up dropping the thyroid hormone production, resulting in permanent hypothyroidism. You can intrinsically balance hyperthyroidism as per the patient files at Ayushakti clinics.
- Thyroid surgery, radiation therapy– Extracting all or a considerable portion of your thyroid gland can reduce or stop hormone production. In that matter, you’ll need to take thyroid hormone for your entire life. Benign thyroid growth can be controlled using Ayushakti’s Ayurveda and natural therapies.
- Radiation therapy – Radiation utilized to treat cancers of the head and neck can concern your thyroid gland and may guide to hypothyroidism
- Medications – Various medications can contribute to hypothyroidism. One such medication is lithium, which is used to treat specific psychiatric disorders. If you’re taking medicine, ask your physician about its impact on your thyroid gland. Ayushakti’s natural remedies can support you to get a healthy mind & emotions without the necessity to take chemical medication.
- Pituitary disorders
- Pregnancy, and iodine deficiency.
- Autoimmune Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis- an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the thyroid gland. Your immune system is created to shield your body’s cells against invading bacteria or viruses. When unidentified bacteria or viruses enter your body, your immune system reacts by transmitting out fighter cells to kill the foreign cells. Sometimes, collected toxins modify normal cellular structure & your body complicates normal, healthy cells for invading cells. This is called an autoimmune reaction. If the autoimmune reaction isn’t controlled or treated, your immune system can bombard healthy tissues. This can cause severe medical issues including conditions such as hypothyroidism. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder and the most ordinary cause of an underactive thyroid. This disease bombards your thyroid gland and generates chronic thyroid inflammation. The inflammation can lower thyroid function.
Less often, hypothyroidism may result from one of the following:
- Congenital disease. Some newborns are born with a deficient thyroid gland or no thyroid gland. In most circumstances, the thyroid gland didn’t grow naturally for unknown reasons, but some kids have an inherited form of the condition.
- Pituitary disorder. A moderately infrequent cause of hypothyroidism is the collapse of the pituitary gland to create enough thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) — usually because of a mild tumor of the pituitary gland.
- Pregnancy. Some women produce hypothyroidism during or after pregnancy (postpartum hypothyroidism), often because they create antibodies to their own thyroid gland. Left untreated, hypothyroidism raises the hazard of miscarriage, premature delivery, and preeclampsia — a disease that causes a substantial rise in a woman’s blood pressure during the last three months of pregnancy. It can also extremely affect the growing fetus.
- Iodine deficiency. The trace mineral iodine — discovered predominantly in seafood, seaweed, plants grown in iodine-rich soil, and iodized salt — is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. Too undersized iodine can lead to hypothyroidism, and too much iodine can aggravate hypothyroidism in people who already have the disorder. Adding iodine to table salt has virtually destroyed this cause.
Causes According to Ayurveda:
Too much stress, Eating regularly heavy & non-compatible foods, or a sedentary lifestyle can deplete Agni (metabolic fire ).
Low metabolism leads to toxins formation (aama toxins ) and imbalances of dosha, especially Vata & Kapha dosha. This mucusy aama & Kapha toxins, blocks the conversion of TSH (parathyroid hormone) into T3 & T4(thyroid hormones ), leading to high TSH & low T3, T4. Toxins, when piled up in the thyroid, change cellular structure. This cheats our immune intelligence to mistake our own cells for a foreign body, stimulating antibodies against thyroids and the autoimmune response. Finally, Hashimoto thyroiditis.
What are the types of Hypothyroidism?
There are three types of Hypothyroidism.
- Primary Hypothyroidism: In this, thyroid stimulation takes place but cannot produce enough thyroid hormones for normal functions.
- Secondary Hypothyroidism- The pituitary gland isn’t stimulating the Thyroid to produce enough hormones.
- Tertiary Hypothyroidism- Insufficient secretion of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) from the hypothalamus directs to an inadequate release of TSH, which in turn generates inadequate thyroid stimulation.
When to see a doctor?
In abnormal thyroid functions ( if you are on thyroid medications ), your body goes under intense fluctuations. If you feel like your body is suffering from untimely mood swings, fatigue submerges you, sudden weight gain, then immediately visit a doctor and get yourself tested. Get your thyroid tests done.
If you’re feeling fatigued for no reason or have any of the other symptoms or signs of hypothyroidism, such as dehydrated skin, a dull, swollen face, constipation, or a husky voice, consult a physician.
How to diagnose Hypothyroidism? How is the Thyroid test done?
- Blood tests to study hormone levels such as Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), T4 (thyroxine), T3.
- Other tests-
- Thyroid ultrasound, or thyroid scan, to study for nodules or swelling in the Thyroid gland.
- Gauging antithyroid antibodies helps to analyze autoimmune thyroid disorders like Hashimoto or grave disease.
Ayushakti expert doctors besides looking at your reports, primarily look at underlying causes of hypothyroidism, including where are blockages & which doshas are imbalanced & why there is autoimmune trigger. Ayushakti doctors (vaidyas) look at pulse( personal meeting ), face(in a video consultation ) & ask questions to understand deep underlying causes, which may include dietary habits, childhood trauma, or severe emotional or mental stress.
Why does Hypothyroid cause weight gain?
The Thyroid hormone is vital for the growth, repair, and metabolism of the body. In Hypothyroidism, thyroid hormone production is low. It causes the metabolism to slow down and leads to many health risks, including high blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight gain.
