The Powerhouse in crisis
Thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland found in front part of the neck.
Thyroid facilitates the production of iodine-containing thyroid hormones – T3 and T4. These thyroid hormones have a wide range of effects on each and every cell of the human body, and it controls how quickly and effectively your cells turns nutrients into energy, and hence it is also called as the powerhouse or the kitchen of the body. Thyroid controls the generation of energy and regulates the body metabolism.
When the thyroid produces less or excess hormones, it causes Thyroid Disorder.
Defects in these regulatory pathways of thyroid production may result in Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) or Goiter. If untreated, thyroid causes disturbance in nervous system, increase in cholesterol levels, creating a risk of heart diseases, infertility, and abortions.
This means “an underactive synthesis of thyroid hormone” either due to thyroid itself (primary hypothyroidism) or due to pituitary (secondary hypothyroidism) or since birth due to defects of thyroid function (congenital hypothyroidism).

It is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed by cell-and antibody-mediated immune processes. This basically means that body is destroying its own cells due to a fault signal (auto immune).
Homoeopathy at HomoeoCARE has lot to offer
Conventional treatment consists of daily dose of thyroid hormone (thyroxin) for rest of life. And as age increases so is the requirement of the TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) and so does the size of tablets. There is absolutely no permanent treatment for it except surgery and removal of over active thyroid gland. Usually after surgery of gland one becomes dependent on external tablet for rest of life.
We at HomoeoCARE go to the root cause of illness and treat the cause rather than the effect and hence patients have long lasting effects.
Your own kitchen (thyroid gland) is not making food and you are bringing food from restaurant (thyroid tablets) and how long will your body accept this outside food, sooner or later despite taking thyroxin patient does not feel better!!! This is the time when you have to look forth into your kitchen that what went wrong? Why hormones which were being synthesized previously are not being produced any longer!!! Our medicine stimulates synthesis of hormones in your thyroid gland itself and hence you are not dependent on any medicines for lifetime like any other normal human being.
At HomoeoCARE after starting with the treatment, investigations (T3, T4, TSH, USG, and antibody levels) are extensively done and monitored regularly for all thyroid patients and results speak for itself.
Homoeopathy can conquer the self destructing disease process and rescue the patient not only from thyroid disease but also other future illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis, etc which follow such Auto immune diseases by correcting the immune response.
