Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF HYPOTHYROIDISM IN AYURVEDA

*Dr. Totaram Gond, Dr. Omprakash Shukla, Dr. Pawan Kumar Kirar and Dr. Pravanjan Acharya

Abstract

Thyroid gland (avatu granthi) is one of the important endocrine Gland from where the thyroxine hormone is released that controls the metabolism. It easily responds to stress i.e. psychosomatic-spiritual stress can cause the hypothyroidism. Incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing day by day in the whole world. The principal function of thyroxine is to activate the cellular oxidative processes throughout the body. The exact mechanism by which it acts is not clearly understood. Excessive hormone induces significant rise in basal oxygen consumption by tissues(hyper-metabolism). In the reverse direction, an insufficiency of the hormone is followed by a reduction in the oxidative reaction. Cells in the body take stimulation from thyroxine. The amount of stimulation the cells receive from thyroxine will determine how quickly they perform their functions. It is more prevalent among the females. In modern science, the treatment of hypothyroidism is done by thyroxine hormone therapy but this medication can lead to several side effects or A.D.R. (Adverse drugs reaction) like chest pain or discomfort, irregular heartbeats, difficult or labored breathing, extreme fatigue, irritability etc. However, in recent times, in modern science, it has also been included in the autoimmune disorder, while in ayurveda it is considered as aamaja vyadhi which can be well managed by Aamaja vyadhi chikitsa.

Keywords: Avatu granthi, metabolism, psychosomatic-spiritual stress, Hypothyroidism, A.D.R., auto immune disorder, aamaja vyadhi, agni.
