Hypothyroidism is the most common metabolic disorder, seen in present times. The prevalence rises with age and women are more affected than men. Stress is one of the key factors for Thyroid; hence the global incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing day by day.
Ayurveda has a very unique approach to understanding the cause and the treatment for this disease. According to Ayurveda the thyroid function 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 in cellular level is obstructed by vitiated Kapha and Meda; hence the treatment principle is aimed to remove the vitiated Kapha (dosha) and medo (dhathu) and thus enabling proper metabolism, which is a major function of the thyroid gland.
The principle function of thyroxine (thyroid hormone) is to act as a catalyst in oxidative metabolism. The amount of stimulation the cells receive from thyroxine will determine how well and quickly they perform their functions related to metabolism. This process is disturbed in hypothyroidism.
