Treatment For Thyroid Problems

The only real treatment for thyroid disease, whether hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism or any other condition of thyroid gland, is cleansing of the system and adoption of a rational diet thereafter, combined with adequate rest and relaxation. To begin with, juices of fruits such as orange, apple, pineapple, and grapes may be taken every two or three hours from 8 am to 8 pm for five days. The bowels should be cleaned daily with lukewarm water.

Turns out, it’s not quite so simple. The butterfly-shaped thyroid gland sits at the base of the neck just below the larynx and cranks out the hormones responsible for the body’s metabolism. When the gland doesn’t produce enough and metabolism turns sluggish, you’ve got a case of hypothyroidism. It sounds straightforward enough, but my thyroid test came back as a question mark — on-the-border hypothyroid, to be checked again in six months.

The appetite of the thyroid patient is usually very large and the weight reduction cannot be prevented for some time. This is because until the heart beat slows down and the tremors stop, there will be incomplete assimilation of good.

But as soon as the balance is restored, weight will slowly increase. To help the absorption of food, a narrow waist compress and, later, a neck compress should be worn for five nights a week. As weight increases, the almost constant hunger will gradually disappear, on no account should any stimulants be administered to create an appetite.

Certain foods and fluids are extremely injurious for thyroid patients and should be avoided by them. These include white flour products, white sugar, flesh foods, fried or greasy foods, preserves, condiments, tea, coffee and alcohol.

If you or your doctor suspects hypothyroidism, the first step is a simple test to measure thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). It’s counterintuitive, but a high TSH is actually a sign that the thyroid is underactive — that is, more and more TSH is needed to goose the thyroid to produce.
