Treatment of Thyroid Disease in Ayurveda

Thyroid disorders are usually associated with the Thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that is present in the front of the neck. This gland plays an important role in the regulation of different types of metabolic processes in the human body. Basically, this gland is located in the human body under Adam’s apple and it also surrounds the windpipe present inside the neck. The middle area of the gland is known as Isthmus.


This Isthmus joins the two distinct thyroid lobes on different sides. Normally, this thyroid gland uses Iodine to produce thyroxine which is also known as the T4 hormone. This hormone is the primary hormone produced by the thyroid gland. After the delivery of the T4 hormone to various body tissues through the bloodstream, it gets converted to the T3 hormone which is one of the most active hormones present in the human body. The basic functions of the thyroid gland usually controlled by the feedback mechanism of the brain and also by the pituitary gland as well as the hypothalamus. In Ayurveda, Thyroid disorder is caused due to the change in physical as well as mental stress and lifestyle. In Thyroid disorder, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha dusti happen. Any irregularity in these Doshas can affect the functioning of the thyroid gland and also cause various types of thyroid disorders.
