Natural Remedies for Thyroid: Curing Thyroid With Therapies

Jul 20, 2019

Thyroid issues are among the most popular health problems that people suffer in this new generation. In general, the number of health disorders is on the rise and it is beyond all doubts that the reasons for this increase are the change in food habits and also the change in the lifestyle. Also, when it comes to the treatment methods, the important thing is that you should select the method that has the least number of side effects. Also, the effectiveness of the treatment method should be considered before making a choice. 

How to cure thyroid naturally

Hyperthyroidism is a situation in which the thyroid gland produces excessive amounts of thyroxine. This would, in turn, cause the metabolism to increase drastically and the results would be things like rapid weight loss and also irregularities in the heartbeats of the patient. 
 

  • The medications: Medications that can reduce the thyroid disorders are numerous and in fact, there are various categories of such medicines. The 2 most commonly used medicines are PTU and Tapazole. These two medicines are capable of reducing the production of thyroxine and hence the metabolism would be returned to the normal rate. Weight loss and rapid heartbeats would be normalized within about 3 months of medication. The advantage is that these two medicines would target the gland in a direct manner and hence the output would be rapid.

 
There are chances that the doctor might also ask you to consume one other medication with these two medicines. The third one would be called the beta blocker and this medicine works on a general basis that is on the whole body. This third medicine is also used regularly for hypertension and cardiac related health issues. These make sure that the excess thyroxine would not cause serious heart problems.
 

  • The use of radioactive iodine: This is a medication that should be taken orally. But once you consume it the thyroid gland would absorb the medicine. The radioactive iodine is one that is capable of destroying the gland and hence this would thereby reduce the production of the excess thyroxine. In fact, the major advantage is that this type of medication would be able to cure the hyperthyroid problem on a permanent basis. But once you take this treatment you would have to regularly consume the thyroxine replacement supplements in order to make sure that your body functions normally.

 

  • Surgery: Surgery is only recommended in extreme cases. The entire thyroid or the partial thyroid would be removed from the body during the process. If the procedure is carried out by an experienced surgeon then the surgery would be perfectly safe and sound. Also, the major advantage is that the procedure is a permanent one and solves the disease once and for all. But the risks are the ones that are involved with surgery. There are minor risks to the vocal cord and also other glands. Take at least two different opinions from different surgeons before going for the surgery.

Curing Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism refers to the situation in which the thyroid gland does not produce the required levels of thyroxine hormone. Hence the treatment is nothing but to intake hormone supplements in order to ensure that the thyroxine levels in the body are maintained at the appropriate levels. The synthetic hormone called the LEVO- T is used as a supplement. The major advantage is that the patient would be able to feel the difference as soon as he or she starts taking the medicine. The adverse effects of the disease would be halted at once and then they would be slowly reversed.

The important thing to do is to fix the dosage of the supplement. This can be done by consulting an expert specialist in the field of hypothyroidism.

Another key fact is that the hormone supplement has almost no side effects if the dosage that you take is right. Also, the cost of the supplements is quite reasonable. But if and when you change the brand of the medicine you take, you should inform your doctor because the dosage might be different for different brands. Various other supplements like iron supplements and multivitamin tablets would also be given to the patients. Apart from these, yoga  (yoga for thyroid)  is also one of the natural remedies that has been observed to have some long term benefits of treating hypothroidism.

How To Cure Thyroid Problems Naturally?

  • Stop consuming coffee and sugar: this might sound quite difficult because coffee is something that has been part of our lives for centuries. But the fact is that everything that contains caffeine should be avoided. This is also the case with sugar. Drink more tea and practice drinking tea without adding sugar in it. All kinds of processed carbohydrates should be avoided. Maida flour and sugar are two of the most common processed carbohydrates. Also, say no to carbonated drinks and other sugary syrups. Consume a lot of starchy vegetables instead.

 

  • Increase protein in your diet: when it comes to the diet, the content of the protein should be increased. Various natural food items like nuts and animal products would be able to increase the protein content of the diet. But make sure that you choose food items(best food for thyroid) that do not contain any kind of pesticides or insecticides in any manner.

 

  • Micronutrients are important: when it comes to the nutrient content of the diet, levels of various vitamins and minerals should be ensured. Some of them are zinc, copper, vitamins A, B, Omega 3 fatty acids, etc. It is a fact that there are supplements available to ensure the levels of all these nutrients, but the better method is to consume food items that are rich in these nutrients. For example, fatty fish like salmon contain a lot of omega 3 fatty acids and this fatty acid is quite capable of stabilizing the thyroid function.

 

  • Reduce goitrogens: various food items like spinach, cabbage, etc. are ones that would interfere with the proper working of the thyroid functioning. This doesn’t mean that they should be avoided completely but they should be cooked well before eating. This is because cooking deactivates the problematic compounds in them.
