  • Dr. Marchanda and other co-writers of the article on thyroid deserve appreciation for filling the knowledge of sea in a vessel. This is called practical approach that is useful for readers with special reference to students and practitioners. My congratulations.

    Dr. Shiv Dua,
    Author of book,’Manage and cure thyroid’.

  • As a nurse I find the information the most through, and along with the photos/graphics easier to understand for all concerned. I like how it includes prevention and a holistic approach. Homeopathy is much needed for women whose subclinical symptoms are ignores until illness or life-threatening thyroid conditions occur. This is because even tho it is women who predominately have thyroid disorders, are rudely dismissed by doctors as only hysterical, do not return for follow-up appointments.

  • It is a highly exhaustive article on the subject, covering all aspects of thyroid including its anatomy, functions, diagnosis of disorders, natural history, homeopathic approach et al. I particularly liked the candid admission made by the authors. They caution that while attempting to undertake the treatment we must ascertain the level of disease, as to what amount of damage has already been done. Once the destruction has set in, no medicine can revive the dead cells even well selected homeopathic remedies cannot undo the irreversible damage already done, however the remedies may stop the further damage and can save the rest of the gland. If we clearly perceive this concept, they say, we can avoid putting up false claims of cure. Homeopathy cannot go against the laws of nature. I must congratulate authors for compiling the most comprehensive article on the subject. It is an ‘all-in-one’ article worth saving on hard disc for future reference and consultation.

  • 1. AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE.
    2. ADDING A BRIEF RESUME/REPERTORY FOR HOMEO MANAGEMENT OF THYROID DISORDERS MIGHT HAVE MADE THE ATICLE PERFECT ONE.
    3. MOST OF THE THYROID DISORDERS OCCUR DUE TO PSYCHOLOGICAL REASONS, THEREFORE MORE EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THESE FACTORS WHILE REMEDY SELECTION.
    4. PSYCHOTHERAPY IN SUCH CASES IS ALSO REQUIRED FOR CORRECTION OF THEIR BEHAVIOR DISORDERS, OTHERWISE THE PATIENT WILL KEEP ON HAVING REMISSIONS AND RELAPSES.

  • On a homeopathy website, I was looking for homeopathic treatment and guidelines rather than exhaustive allopathic background that can be found easily on many other places on the net. The article would have been more useful to homeopaths if it can be revised providing concise allopathic/basic info about the illness with detail discussion and remedies to treat the illness homeopathically.

  • Thanks to HPathy. I found this article very informative, being a non-homeo background, I got so much information. I am a patient of Goitre since last 8 years, Now I am 18 year old female. My T3 and T4 is always with in the normal limit but TSH always fluctuate, Can u sugges me any thing ? I will be thankful to you.

  • Common symptoms of hypothyroidism are:

    Fatigue or lack of energy
    Weight gain
    Feeling cold
    Dry skin and hair
    Heavy menstrual periods
    Constipation
    Slowed thinking

    DIAGNOSIS of hypothyroidism is usually straightforward, once it is suspected.
    Patients with hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis have an elevated level of serum TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone).
    However, the rare patient with hypothyroidism due to a pituitary or hypothalamic condition may have a normal or low serum TSH.

  • In my experience for hypo/hyper thyroidism;

    -thyroidinum 200 every week then after 1 month one dose of 1M
    -Spongia 30(3 times a day)

    -Fucus Q 4 times a day
    – Iodium 30 (3 times a day)

    These remedies gave excellent results, even specialist was surprised to see reports

    regards

  • Left side goiter softy feel some time or hard feel t3 t4 & tsh report normal please advised me medicine in homeophathy

  • I am 44 year old, self employed. Always stressful business wise. I got thyroid nodule in right lower lobe, which is around one inch in shape. My TSH, T3, T4 are normal. There are multiple cystic small nodules in left lobe as well.
    Can any one recommend any Homeopathic Remedy. Thanks
