I prescribed Ignatia Amara LM 1 in frequent repetition, in a very short span of timeless than a few hours she felt better. After the third day, now on third day 28.05.2019, she was absolutely all right and being discharged with the same medication with increased potency LM3, diluted in the third cup. Ignatia Amara is one of the best homeopathy medicine for Arthritis and joint pain as illustrated in this success case.


Watch the videos and feel the happiness of the patient by using SIMILIMUM.


Dare to be wise. Homeopathy is the science of observation by unprejudiced mind Physician (aph 6). If the physician clearly perceives (aph 3) then nothing is incurable.

Long Live Hahnemann. 


My message to the young Homoeopaths, try to observe your patients unprejudiced (without keeping therapeutics & rubrics in your mind) then nothing is impossible by single remedy. Try not to rush to polypharmacy or patents as  I have never used any patents in my Hospital.


Homeopathic Medicine: Ignatia Amara

My Ayurvedic Treatment for Hypothyroidism for this patient included oral administration of C.P. Vati and Varunadi Kashayam for a period of 120 days .Treatment was beneficial in the following manner:

 Both the medicines administered have property of reducing the Kapha and Medas and treating Aama with their Ushana Tiksha Gunas

 Moreover Chandraprabhavati also helps by acting as a Rasayana. Therefore both facilitate purification of micro channels due to their Vata- Kapha hara property and by increasing supply and assimilation of micronutrients to tissues therby correcting the metabolism.

Discussion on Ayurvedic treatment for Hypothyroidism:

 

According to Ayurveda, factors like impaired digestion, stress, anxiety and sedentary lifestyle leads to blockage of the minute channels causes an imbalance in the function of the thyroid gland. Hypothyroidism reflects profound derangement of vata and kapha doshas. Agitated vata and kapha go into various channels and systems of the body and causes symptoms that have been mentioned above. The two vitiated doshas block various channels. Kapha has heavy and unctuous properties. Escalation of these characteristics causes obstruction in channels and originates other associated symptoms. They also disturb the menstrual cycle and metabolic changes.

Ayurvedic treatment for Hypothyroidism involves clearing these channels in order to balance body energies and restore the circulation of thyroxine. Herbal preparations are administered to increase the digestive fire at a cellular level, restoring proper metabolism. According to the condition of disease and patient, Doctor planned personalized combinations to provide symptomatic and root-level relief.

She was under Ayurvedic treatment for Thyroid for 1 year and since then she has been completely off meds for thyroid. We check her thyroid every 3 months and  it has been normal.  Ayurveda for Thyroid condition has been well documented in research done on Ashwagandha in a clinical trial documented. Eight weeks of treatment with Ashwagandha proved that Ayurveda for Thyroid shows efficacy in treatment.


We have used the research done on Ayurveda and applied the same principles of treatment to this patient. After she fully recovered, the patient came back for 

11-day cleansing program for detoxification. Please see her attached testimonial as well and you can motivate yourself to do Panchakarma according to your prakriti. The patient has fully recovered from her thyroid issues. 


Discussion on  Ashwagandha for Thyroid Problems

With the success evidence in terms of research and clinical trials, Ashwandha has proven its efficacy as Ayurvedic herb for treatment of Hypothyroidism. This ayurvedic herb helps manage thyroid health with stress management .


During the initial treatment sessions, we prescribed her to get proper rest for the body. With this, we aimed at weaning off from medication  several weeks’ to months’ time. On a similar timeline, we addressed the malfunctioning thyroid. 

Only when the body has gotten proper rest, we proceeded with Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) herb along with Panchakarma for full recovery.




Ayurvedic Treatment for Thyroid Disorders


Thyroid disorders are the conditions that affect the thyroid gland, which uses iodine to produce vital hormones. As far as positioning, the thyroid is a butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of the neck. On functioning, it plays a key role in metabolism, bone health, growth and development.


Categorically, there are prominently three types of hormonal factors involved:

  • TSH – Thyroid Stimulating Hormones

  • T3-Triiodothyronine

  • T4-Thyroxine


The pituitary gland takes the responsibility of TSH secretion. Think of it  as a small peanut-sized gland at the base of your brain. When T3 and T4 levels are too low, TSH is released to produce more of these hormones. An imbalance between them may indicate thyroid issues. (1).


In details, there are two types of thyroid disorders:


  • Hypothyroidism 

The disorder occurs when there is iodine deficiency, and the gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. Besides, the trigger could also be due to a particular medical condition: Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disorder. 


  • Hyperthyroidism.

By contrast, this medical condition occurs due to a surplus of thyroid hormone.


Science and research behind the cure of Thyroid with ashwagandha

Practitioners refer ashwagandha for an alternative and safe treatment procedure instead of synthetic medication. Recent scientific research confirms that consumption of 600 mg of ashwagandha root extract daily lead to significant improvements in thyroid levels as compared to taking a placebo.  This experiment conducted for 8-weeks with over 50 people with hypothyroidism.


The results were clear. The consumers of ashwagandha showed an increase in triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) levels of 41.5% and 19.6%, respectively. Besides, serum TSH levels decreased by 17.5%. (2)


Summary and Outcome

Withania somnifera, popularly known as Ashwagandha is the Indian ginseng. In Ayurveda, it is graded as a Rasayana (rejuvenation) and expected to promote physical and mental health, rejuvenate the body in debilitated conditions and increase longevity.  We prescribe it in supplement form. Most supplements come in 300-mg tablets ingested twice per day after eating. (3) Besides, there is no human data on Ashwagandha's toxicity, which makes it safe for use.
