Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid is one of the body’s most important glands. Thyroid dysfunction is one of the most common clinical conditions seen frequently. Thyroid function influences energy formation, circulation, immune function, the metabolism of all the organs, blood sugar regulation, emotional stability, and hormonal balance.

Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland located in the neck on either side of the voice box that controls the overall metabolic rate of the body. Hence, imbalances of thyroid hormones can have an intense effect on an individual’s energy levels. Sometimes the disturbances are very clear and easily diagnosed. Often though, they can be rather delicate and easily overlooked.


Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone. This occurs with greater frequency in women between the ages of 40-50, and may affect as many as 10% of women over age 50. It is associated with symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, low motivation, heat and/or cold intolerance, headaches and migraines, dry skin and hair, hair loss, fluid retention, unhealthy brittle nails, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, allergies, slow healing, acne, hives, carpal tunnel syndrome, low sex drive, insomnia, irritability, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, decreased memory and concentration, and sometimes infertility.


Hyperthyroidism is when the thyroid gland produces an excess of hormones. This is associated with weight loss coupled with increased appetite, heart palpitations, increased body heat, bulging eyes, restlessness, anxiety, sleep disturbances or insomnia, muscle weakness, trembling hands, and decreased menstrual flow.

Diagnostic testing

To diagnose primary hypothyroidism, many doctors simply measure the amount of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) being produced by the pituitary gland. High levels of TSH indicate that the thyroid is not producing sufficient levels of thyroid hormone (mainly as thyroxine (T4) and smaller amounts of triiodothyronine (T3)). However, measuring just TSH fails to diagnose secondary and tertiary forms of hypothyroidism, thus leading to the following suggested blood testing if the TSH is normal and hypothyroidism is still suspected:

  • Free triiodothyronine (fT3)
  • Free levothyroxine (fT4)
  • Total T3
  • Total T4

Homoeopathic Management of Thyroid Disorders

Homoeopathy has very good scope in the treatment of Thyroid disorders. Homoeopathic treatment primarily helps in controlling the symptoms of the thyroid disturbance (be it a hypo or hyper-thyroidism) while restoring the thyroid hormones levels back to normal. Thus it provides effective treatment in a natural and safe way without disturbing the existing balance of the body.

At Dr. Bidani’s Centre for Homoeopathy many patients with thyroid disorders have benefited from the treatment, experiencing good control of their problem and reduced dependence  on conventional medicines, if any.

It is suggested that the patients must opt for homoeopathic treatment in the early and mid stages itself for best results.
