Dear Friends, I received lots of queries to my older post THYROID PROBLEMS & AYURVEDA TREATMENT ( The queries like,
 What is the line of treatment?
What should be the food for thyroid diseased patients and their Life style?
This post for them who are eagerly waiting for the solution. 

Today Thyroid and hormone related diseases are becoming common in 20-30 age groups of females and some males. It is alarming and most of them go for Allopathy treatment which tries to do the management of the disease but no definite cure. Some people fed up with treatment and turn to Ayurveda, Homeopathy etc. I receive these kinds of patients more who tried other treatments and were not satisfied.

The patients who comes first for Ayurveda treatment in early stages of the disease is curable and the patient can lead a normal healthy life. But if the disease is chronic in a particular patient, the treatment will also take longer duration. 

These are the major causes for the disease
1. Menstrual disorders
2. Hormonal pills, injection, postponement pills etc
3. Ineffective management of first one and half month after delivery
4. Food habits and impaired digestion

1. The regularization of menstruation will sufficient to cure the problem. So here we give importance to menstruation. It again depend upon the cause, due to which the menstruation is impaired. Here some of the oral medicines and some procedures like "Virechana" and "Basti" will help.

2. The hormonal pills etc will ruin the normal hormonal physiology of the body and thyroid problems occur. This in turn effect the production (more or less) of thyroid hormones. The final outcome will be sudden weight gain or weight loss, hot flushes, fatigue etc. Here the treatment is to bring the normalcy in thyroid and related hormone production. The oral medicines are sufficient.

3. First one and half month of pregnancy is very important. Usually in the pregnancy (9 months) no menstrual flow. So the unwanted blood accumulates in the body. For the first 15 days after delivery there will be profuse flow of menstrual blood which clear all the stored unwanted blood. During these 15 days, some home medicines like pepper decoction, black cumin decoction will help to clean the body. If the blood is not cleared during this time the outcome will be thyroid problem and sudden weight gain. Here we conduct "Virechana" treatment to clean the body from the toxic blood. 

4. Due to impaired digestion, accumulation of "Kapha" will hamper the hormonal system. This leads to disease. Here "Vamana" to remove "Kapha" will be the major treatment. 

All said and done the final treatment will be planned after thorough understanding of the patient and his history. So the above treatment is for your understanding purpose and how Ayurveda deal with thyroid disease patients. 

For all the above patients some of the food and lifestyle changes are very essential
1. Have healthy and fresh food
2. Hot and limited quantity of food
3. Don't eat dinner very late i.e. after 8.30 PM.
4. Avoid night Curd and butter milk. 
5. Deep oil fried foods and bakery foods to be avoided.
6. Stop having evening snacks
7. Use 1 to 2 teaspoon full of ghee during lunch and dinner
8. Have oil massage bath every day morning in empty stomach
9. The fast foods like Pizza, Burger, Italian etc which are not suits us will be better to avoid.
10. Sleep early in the night, before 10-10.30 PM. 

I hope your queries are attempted. If any further information please write to me in comment section. I will try to give justice to your questions with suitable answers. 

Have a happy and prosperous healthy new year.
