Thyroid Disorders

As per Ayurveda, the thyroid is located near ‘Vishuddi Chakra’ (In the throat area) and is made up of ‘Pitta’ and ‘Kapha Dosha’. The thyroid is the centre of fire energy (Agni) and its functions are to stimulate psychic and somatic growth, secrete hormones, balance metabolism and control bodily functions. The thyroid responds rapidly to stimuli and to stress and is a very sensitive gland.

Thyroid disorders can be caused by Stress, Genetics, Poor nutrition leading to an iodine deficiency and disturbances in the immune system. Thyroid malfunctioning causes Hyper and Hypo thyroidism.

The first condition is an overactive thyroid gland, Hyperthyroidism can cause Thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s Disease), Multi Nodular Goitre and Graves’ disease (Diffuse Toxic Goitre). It has symptoms such as Anxiety, Sleeplessness, Irritation, Fear, High blood pressure, Muscle weakness, Lack of energy. Hypothyroidism is an underactive condition of thyroid gland. It is divided into three types:

  • Primary (Originating from the thyroid gland).
  • Secondary (Originating from the pituitary gland.
  • Tertiary (Origination from the hypothalamus).

The symptoms of Hypothyroidism include unusual Weight gain, Oedema, Tiredness, Loss of appetite, Constipation, Anaemia, Muscle stiffness, Difficulty in smelling and tasting and Cold and Clammy skin.

When ‘Agni’ becomes too low, the metabolic rate slows due to the reduced secretion of hormones. The above symptoms are typical of aggravated ‘Kapha Dosha’. With the practice of Yoga, Pranayams, Management of diet and lifestyle plus Ayurvedic herbs (In conjunction with Western medicines) can stop this disease from progressing any further.
