Thyroid conditions

Thyroid conditions

When the pacesetter of the metabolism is derailed.

“I have a goiter.” “I am constantly under stress.” “Slowly but steadily, I gain weight.”

This or a similar experience is what people report when they have a thyroid malfunction.

The hormones that develop in the thyroid regulate metabolism and the growth of body cells and also inhibit bone reduction. Thyroid hyperfunction causes agitation, sleep disturbance, palpitations, diarrhoea and loss of weight. Conversely, in the case of thyroid hypofunction, there is lack of motivation, lack of appetite, constipation, dry skin and increase of weight even when food intake is the same.

It doesn’t matter whether the dysfunction is due to hot or cold knots in the thyroid tissues or whether the thyroid is enlarged or a normal size.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on thyroid conditions?

According to Maharishi Ayurveda thyroid conditions start with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of thyroid conditions, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the body and the thyroid. Everyone affected by thyroid hyperfunction knows that low intake of iodine as well as stress and an unstable nervous system can serve as an amplifier for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each thyroid condition varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine provides a range of different methods of treatment at our Centre. After a comprehensive medical diagnosis is conducted, an individually tailored treatment program is designed for each patient with thyroid difficulties.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of thyroid conditions, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of the nervous system can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures – tailored according to your needs – support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way your natural self-healing abilities can re-establish a balanced production of thyroid hormones.
