At Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic we treat thyroid abnormalities. The treatment of thyroid abnormalities falls under certain categories. Apart from iodine deficiency goiter. The first category of hyper and hypothyroidism is without alteration in the gland and due to error in a feedback mechanism. The second category of hypo and hyperthyroidism is due to aplasia (sinking of the gland) and hyperplasia (enlargement of the gland) or adenomas (gland tumors of the thyroid gland). occurrence of the thyroid is 7 times more in women.

Treatment for hypothyroidism is taking hormones for deficient States, but this gradually increases in dose, without improvement in gland function. In hypothyroidism, medicines control hyperactive glands, and surgery and radioactive isotopes are options for adenomas and cancer.

In Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic the Ayurveda treatment for hypothyroidism yields good results in 3 months, capable of withdrawing medicines without relapse of symptoms. The negative feedback is established well. Panchakarma treatments, Dhara, oil massage, and Shodhana (purification therapies) are helpful. Each case is unique and has to be handled by an expert medical practitioner. In hyperthyroidism, the tissue imbalance is the cause and the medicines devised are always according to the case, whether it is hypersecretion by a normal gland or hypersecretion by an adenoma( that is gland tumor). The human body has an inherent capacity to resolve tumors through the effective working of the immune system. In Hashimoto’s thyroid disease, autoimmunity is controlled and a general immunomodulation strategy forms the basis of thyroid disease treatment.

In Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic, the treatment modalities for thyroid abnormalities fall under specific consideration of the type of thyroid abnormality manifested, but the main emphasis is to re-establish equilibrium for the functioning gland. As far as Panchakarma therapy is concerned, Ayurveda considers the human body as a reversely uprooted tree which means the Panchakarma treatments done on the head influence the whole body. In Ayurveda, the head, ears, and feet are seats of Vata, which is the humor controlling the  human body

As we know, although we are considering treatments for thyroid gland abnormality in the holistic view of Ayurvedic therapy. The thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary gland which is considered the master gland of the endocrine orchestra, which is intern controlled by the regulatory function of the hypothalamus having two specific areas of regulatory factor generation, namely anterior adenohypophysis and neurohypophysis. The amount of hormone secreted by a gland is determined by the nervous system.

At Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic, in the light of this rational treatment philosophy, the treatments done include:

Nasya: Installation of medicated drops in nostrils with judiciously selected drugs as indicated in the treaties.

Takradhara: Special medicated buttermilk prepared in a formula after computing the permutations of the doshas(humorous involved).

Abhyanga: full body massage of the body to stimulate the organs involved in the pathology. Shiro lepas medicated paste is applied to the head to stabilize the nervous system.

The thyroid is an oxygenation hormone, our brain is 2% of our body weight but consumes 20% of our bodies’ oxygen. The thyroid abnormality hits the nervous system considerably. Thyroid physiology explains if there are not enough carbs or fats in the blood thyroxine turns catabolic and if they are present it becomes anabolic.

In this way, medicine as per the thyroid disease condition, purificatory panchakarma, diet regimes, and practicing daily and seasonal regimes taught to the patient in course of treatment give good results in thyroid disease.
