Tackling hyperthyroidism is important as it affects quality of life


HAVE YOU ever pondered how your vital organs go about a stable rhythm, uncomplainingly, diligently, unfazed by various conditions, internal and external? Well, the driving force to maintain the equilibrium is the thyroid gland visible on the external throat or lower part of the neck which moves on swallowing and produces two hormones referred to as T3 and T4.

What an accelerator is to an automobile, these hormones are to the human body revving up the activity whenever the bodily demands are more.
The hormones dictate how many calories we burn, how much should the body temperature be and what needs to be our body weight.

These also have direct effects on the heartbeat and let it beat faster when necessary, on the respiratory rate, regulation of bowel movement, etc.
Every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism, primarily conversion of oxygen and calories to energy.
Sometimes the thyroid gland tends to overproduce the hormones more than the required for metabolism and leads to various changes in the body termed as Hyperthyroidism.

There could be a general over-activity of all the cells of the body called as Grave's disease or a few pockets in the gland like nodules which overproduce and in some cases like an auto immune condition called thyroiditis, the body wrongly pushes the gland to produce more.

The flush of hormones in hyperthyroidism causes fast heart rate, thereby trembling of hands, palpitation, disturbance of sleep and so, high blood pressure and fatigue. Breathlessness on slight exertion, increased bowel movement and loss of weight despite increased appetite, due to increased calorie breakdown are typical.

There is a moistness of skin due to excessive perspiration, loss of hair, and women complain of excessive and prolonged menstrual bleeding.

Patients are more prone to variations in temperature and physically the staring gaze is characteristic of hyperthyroidism. Though this ailment affects quality of life, it is generally treatable and rarely fatal.

The aim of treatment is to alleviate the symptoms due to the disease while gradually working on balancing the thyroid function. Aurum Met and Glonine are indicated when palpitation, increased blood pressure are predominant. Spongia and Lycopus help relieve bronchial symptoms.

Natrum Mur, Phosphorus and Iodum are excellent in balancing the function, more so when the patient tends to lose weight despite eating well. Homoeopathic medicine is an ideal complement too.


As always, the best remedy and the dosage are best prescribed by a homoeopathic physician on a detailed evaluation.
