Ayurvedic Treatment for Hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism and other endocrinal problems are deeply associated with the “stress-level” of the body. Stress make body and mind axis disturbed and hormones which connect the body and mind with each other are deeply affected by all these disturbances, here is the treatment of the Hyperthyroidism as per modern as well as Ayurvedic ideology.
Treating the symptom: There are medications available to immediately treat the symptoms caused by excessive thyroid hormones, such as a rapid heart rate. One of the main classes of drugs used to treat these symptoms is the beta-blockers. These medications counteract the effect of thyroid hormones but they do not alter the levels of thyroid hormones in the blood.
Anti thyroid Drugs: These drugs accumulate in the thyroid tissue and block production of thyroid hormones. The major risk of these medications is occasional suppression of production of white blood cells by the bone marrow. It is important for patients to know that if they develop a fever, a sore throat, or any signs of infection while taking Anti thyroid Drugs, they should see a doctor immediately.
Radioactive Iodine: Radioactive iodine is given orally (either by pill or liquid) on a one-time basis to ablate a hyperactive gland. The radioactive iodine is picked up by the active cells in the thyroid and destroys them. Since iodine is only picked up by thyroid cells, the destruction is local, and there are no widespread side effects with this therapy.
Radioactive iodine ablation has been safely used for over 50 years, and the only major reasons for not using it are pregnancy and breast-feeding. Radioactive iodine must be used with caution in patients with Graves' related eye disease since recent studies have shown that the eye disease may worsen after therapy. If a woman chooses to become pregnant after ablation, it is recommended she wait 8-12 months after treatment before conceiving. Permanent hypothyroidism is the major complication of this form of treatment.
Surgery: partial removal of thyroid gland was once a common form of treatment for hyperthyroidism. The goal is to remove the active thyroid tissue.
Complications of Surgery:
If too much tissue is removed, an inadequate production of thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) may result. In this case, thyroid replacement therapy is begun.
Disruption of the surrounding tissue, including the nerves supplying the vocal cords and the four tiny glands in the neck which regulate calcium levels in the body. Accidental removal of these glands may result in low calcium levels and require calcium replacement therapy.
Ayurvedic Treatment for Hyperthyroidism:
