Homeopathy may be the most controversial but also the most popular alternative medicine. Especially, when it comes to diseases like piles, hypothyroidism, or infertility, this is considered to be the most reliable treatment method by many patients. Homeopathy is the best alternative that can treat many diseases without surgery & is also affordable. While some people argue against it, others swear by its great power and effectiveness.
In this article, Dr. Yogesh Jadhav will discuss whether hypothyroidism treatment is possible with homeopathy, if yes then how? He is working with the Advanced Specialty Homoeopathy clinic which is the best homeopathy clinic in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Dr. Yogesh Jadhav has successfully treated more than 10,000 patients in the last four years.
How Does Homeopathy Work?
The first principle of homeopathy is “like cures like.” Remedies use ingredients that cause the symptoms you want to cure which means that remedies against fever could, for example, be made from belladonna, which also causes fever. A mixture obtained from bee venom is used to treat itchy swellings, and so on.
The second principle behind this treatment method is the special method of preparation called potentization. The idea is that diluting and agitating the ingredients actually activates their curative powers and also enhances their effect. To do this, the ingredient is dissolved in alcohol or distilled water. Homeopaths take one part of the active ingredient solution and mix it with nine parts of water, diluting it down to one-tenth of its original concentration, and shaking it. What you have now is a 1X potency, which means one part ingredient and nine parts solvent. Now, this process is repeated. Take one part, mix it with nine parts of pure or distilled water, and shake it well. Now you have 2X. This is done again and again until you reach the desired grade of potency. The finished remedy is taken orally, or sometimes with little sugar pellets that are sold as globule.
What is Hypothyroidism?
In simple terms, hypothyroidism reduces the ability of the thyroid gland to function, which reduces the production of thyroxine. Symptoms include weakness of memory, hair fall, dryness of skin and hair, depression, weakness, weight gain, body ache, constipation, irregular menses, and so on.
Homeopathy for Hypothyroidism-
Before we discuss homeopathic treatment let us first know about the allopathic treatment of hypothyroidism. HRT (Hormonal Replacement Therapy) is given for hypothyroidism in allopathy. Any allopath in the world will prescribe you thyroxine no matter what the brand name is. HRT basically fulfills the thyroxine deficiency which is not produced by the thyroid gland naturally. Now what happens is as the thyroxine is provided from outside in the form of HRT your thyroid gland becomes sluggish and gradually the thyroid gland further reduces the production of thyroxine. As a result dependency on HRT increases and its dose also increases.
But this does not happen with homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy provides natural medicines and not HRT, which stimulate the thyroid gland to produce a normal amount of thyroxine. This way homeopathy treats the root cause of hypothyroidism which is under-active thyroid. With homeopathic medicines, the under-active thyroid gland becomes better. After taking a complete homeopathic treatment chances of reoccurrence of hypothyroidism is rare. It takes 5-10 weeks to show a significant impact.
Homeopathy should be the first choice in all cases of hypothyroidism. Whether it’s a new case or an old case because homeopathy works fast and without any side effects. Homeopathy treats hypothyroidism from its roots because homeopathy works on the thyroid gland by stimulating it to produce normal thyroxine.
Who Can Take Homeopathy?
According to Dr. Yogesh Jadhav, all kinds of hypothyroid patients can take homeopathic treatment, like patients who are recently diagnosed and those who are already on HRT, thyroxine. For those patients who are diagnosed currently, Homeopathy does not let them go on HRT, and even if they are on HRT; it is stopped completely with the treatment. In chronic patients who are already on a high dose of HRT homeopathy is able to reduce their thyroxine dose and relieve their symptoms of hypothyroidism.
There are around 197 medicines in homeopathy for hypothyroidism which are very effective. Now which of these 197 medicines are to be given, in how much potency, how many times in a day this is a complicated process which only a highly qualified and experienced doctor can decide. Always remember, a sensible doctor does not prescribe on the name of hypothyroidism. He never gives readymade patent medicines for hypothyroidism. He takes the complete history of the patient, notes down all the symptoms then studies all the physical, mental, emotional symptoms properly & analyses the case properly. After that, he selects the medicine keeping in mind the susceptibility of the patient, and decides upon the potency, and repetition of medicines.
In hypothyroidism, medicines are prescribed for a month or two and then the doctor will review the patient. Every month the case is studied again considering the thyroid profile of the patient thereby fine-tuning the allopathic and homeopathic medicines and their potencies. Nothing is fixed in the homeopathic treatment and medicines change according to the condition of the patient.
“Homeopathy is not readymade it is tailor-made.” It constantly changes according to the situation of the patient. Treatment of hypothyroidism in homeopathy is a systematic process that can only be done by an experienced professional homeopath. A high level of skill is required to treat hypothyroidism. How much improvement you get in hypothyroidism depends upon your choice of doctor. These days as KYC is done in banks and mutual funds; we believe patients should also do KYD – Know Your Doctor. Dr. Yogesh Jadhav is one of the most successful Homeopathy doctors & you can rely upon his treatment to cure your Hypothyroidism.
