Homeopathy for Thyroid disorders


Thyroid disorders affect the functioning of the thyroid gland, a small butterfly- shaped gland located in the front of the neck. These disorders lead to an imbalance in the production of thyroid hormones, essential for regulating key bodily functions:

  • Metabolism: Regulates metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, thereby, maintaining energy balance
  • Body temperature: Maintains body temperature, thereby, acting as a thermostat
  • Growth and development: Essential for normal growth and development of the brain and skeletal system, especially during infancy and childhood
  • Brain function: Low level of thyroid hormones leads to poor memory, attention span and learning
  • Heart health: Effect on blood pressure, heart rate, contractility and overall cardiovascular health
  • Muscle function: Contributes to muscle strength and coordination
  • Bone health: Action on bone formation and maintenance. Helps in maintaining bone density throughout life
  • Reproductive health: Regulates menstrual cycle, ovulation, and sperm production. Influences fertility in both males and females
In cases of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), the thyroid gland fails to produce sufficient thyroid hormones leading to fatigue, weight gain, constipation, increased cholesterol levels, dry skin, hair loss, hoarseness, sensitivity to cold, depression, irregular menses etc.

In cases of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), the thyroid gland produces excessive thyroid hormones leading to weight loss, heat intolerance, diarrhea, palpitations, restlessness, irritability, tremors and muscle weakness, fatigue, irregular menses etc.

Homeopathy can be successfully used to manage thyroid disorders based on the patient’s presenting symptoms, exciting causes, past history, mental and emotional states. 

Homeopathy can be complemented with dietary modifications and yoga to effectively help in the management of thyroid disorders

Foods that provide antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D, Selenium should be included in the diet. In cases of hypothyroidism, Iodine-rich foods should be included. Inclusion of complex carbs such as wholegrains and millets, seeds, plenty of seasonal vegetables and fruits, limiting the intake of cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale etc., reducing processed foods such as sugary snacks, packaged foods, carbonated drinks, artificial juices etc. is essential.

Certain yoga poses regulate the functioning of the thyroid gland and are known to produce beneficial results. Examples: Shoulder stand, Fish pose, Plow pose, Camel pose, Bridge pose and Legs-up-the-wall pose.
