“Natural Treatments For Hypothyroidism
Are They Effective?”
By Thomas Twain
This article will discuss natural treatments for Hypothyroidism and whether they can be considered an effective method of treatment. I’ll also discuss what causes Hypothyroidism and what some of the symptoms of this condition are. If you are considering any alternative form of treatment, please always discuss it with your doctor or health care provider beforehand.
The Thyroid gland is located in the neck just below the voice box and its job is to produce hormones which regulate our metabolism and growth. Sometimes the Thyroid can become sluggish and in turn doesn’t produce sufficient quantities of hormones and so our body’s slow down and we might suffer from symptoms such as sensitivity to cold, fatigue, dizziness and constipation plus many more. When the Thyroid slows down like this we call the condition Hypothyroidism which basically means an under-active Thyroid.
Some of the causes of Hypothyroidism include toxicity of the body, Iodine deficiency or sometimes the immune system can wrongly attack the Thyroid gland. Many people don’t find out what causes their condition but fortunately this condition can be treated and treated well.
The conventional method of treating Hypothyroidism uses a synthetic version of the Thyroid hormone Thyroxine, which makes up for the Thyroids under-productivity and this can work well but unfortunately some people are sensitive to this treatment and suffer from side effects and usually look for alternative methods of treatment.
Alternative or natural treatments for Hypothyroidism may use natural Thyroid hormones which are made from the Thyroid gland of Pigs but get great results and this is mainly due to the fact that this type of product contains all the Thyroid hormones in and not just Thyroxine. Another alternative is Naturopathic methods of treatment which aim to heal the root cause of the Hypothyroidism and this may be done in a number of ways such as detoxification and/or supplementation of herbs, vitamins and minerals. Naturopathic methods are in my opinion a great option as they target the root cause rather than masking symptoms as with hormone based treatments.
