Natural Remedies for Hypothyroidism
Thyroid disease is one of the most commonly occurring hormonal imbalances in the body. Excess thyroid production (hyperthyroidism) and under production (hypothyroidism) are both quite common conditions, and millions of people worldwide are affected by these diseases. Hypothyroidism may result from; body’s autoimmune reactions, stress, pollution of the air, water or food, western medical treatment of hyperthyroidism, iodine deficiency, stress and many other factors. Many people who suffer from improper functioning of the thyroid gland don’t even come to know it because the symptoms are often attributed to other diseases.
A blood test is usually required to establish if you have an underactive thyroid, and also to figure out the possible causes of the condition. One of the most common thyroid symptoms is fatigue. Anyone who has an underactive thyroid gland suffers from low energy, and is not able to perform the daily chores with zeal. They get tired easily. Insomnia is also one of the key thyroid symptoms. Patients are either not able to fall asleep at all, or don’t get enough sleep that can rejuvenate and freshen the body.
Most people who have thyroid dysfunction have problems of abnormal weight gain. Obesity in people with thyroid problems is often attributed to other conditions, and the hormonal aspects are often ignored. This misdiagnosis normally leads to delayed and inadequate treatment. Patients of thyroid dysfunction become moody and may feel depressed at times. Often such symptoms are mistaken for psychological conditions like depression. Those who have thyroid dysfunction may also be constipated. Such common symptoms should not be ignored, and a both blood tests and clinical analysis should be evaluated to rule out thyroid problems.
There are several lines of treatment available for hypothyroidism. Western medicine usually depends on providing doses of synthetic hormones such as synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine) or Cytomel to make up for the production deficiency in the body for the treatment for hypothyroidism. This kind of treatment is not always effective especially in those patients who have autoimmune reactions triggering the condition. An effective alternative treatment for thyroid lies in the age old natural medicine such as acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
