Unhealthy dietary habits, irregular sleep cycles, and overdependence on technology have resulted in major lifestyle diseases like Thyroid, Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity, PCOS, Heart diseases, and Cancer.

In present times, Thyroid is a very common problem. The prevalence rises with age and women are more prone as compared to men. Stress is one of the main causes of thyroid, hence the global scenario of hypothyroidism is increasing day by day.
Ayurveda has come up with a very unique approach to understanding the cause and treatment of this disease. the function of the thyroid is controlled by pitta, which in turn is responsible for all of the metabolic activities carried out by the thyroid hormones. In Hypothyroidism normal functioning of the Pitta at the cellular level is restricted by vitiated Kapha and Meda; hence the treatment principle is aimed to remove the vitiated Kapha (dosha) and meda (dhatu) and thus enable proper metabolism, which is a major function of the thyroid gland.
The main function of thyroxine (thyroid hormone) is to act as a catalyst in oxidative metabolism. The amount of stimulation the cells receive from thyroxine will decide how well and quickly they perform their functions related to metabolism. This process is disturbed in hypothyroidism.
