Ayurvedic treatment for hyperthyroidism aims to control its symptoms and prevent them from getting severe. Ayurveda strives to cure the root cause or pathology of hyperthyroidism i.e., Grave’s disease. Stress, smoking, exposure of neck to radiation, certain medications and persistent viral infections can precipitate Grave’s disease.
The common symptoms presented by hyperthyroidism are:
Medicines used to treat Grave’s Disease or inflammation of the Thyroid Gland— Arogya-Vardhini, Panch-Tikta-Ghrut-Guggulu, Triphala-Guggulu, Punarnavadi-Guggulu, Maha-Manjishthadi-Qadha, Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Behada (Terminalia bellerica), Kanchnaar (Bauhinia variegata), Saariva (Hemidesmus indicus), Usheer (Vetiveria zizanioidis), Chandan (Santalum album), Nimba (Azadirachta indica), Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) and Gokshur (Tribulus terrestris).
Additional Medicines— For early recovery, additional medicines are added to the already prescribed doses to treat hyperthyroidism. Additional medicines include Suvarna-Sutshekhar-Ras, Suvarna-Sameerpannag and Abhrak-Bhasma.
Since Grave's disease is an autoimmune disorder, medications, such as Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), Bala (Sida cordifolia) and Naagbala (Grewia hirsuta) are given to improve one’s immunity.
