Title : Traditional and herbal Intervention to combat thyroidism


This study explores a holistic approach to combat thyroid in women, focusing on a one-year intervention program. With thyroid issues on the rise in modern times, particularly among women of reproductive age, the consequences of untreated hyperthyroidism leading to hypothyroidism are highlighted, including various health challenges and the potential risk of life-threatening cancer. The intervention included an Ayurvedic medicine, known as, Kachnar Guggul which consists of Triphala, Harad (Terminalia chebula); Baheda (Terminallia bellirica), and Amla (Indian gooseberry); Phyllanthus embilica in precise proportion of 1:2:4; and Trikutu, same quantity of Chhoti Pipal (Ficus religiosa), Saunth(Dried ginger); Zingiber officinale and Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum). It was given daily with basil and some other ancient Indian herbs. This was done with some specific exercises of the thumb and Pranayam (regulatory breathing exercises). Notably, the women refrained from using allopathic medications during the intervention. The results were seen in the hematological indices after 3, 6, and 12 months of intervention. The hematological indices reflected differences in T3, T4, and TSH which were significant. Besides, the women also started feeling better with the treatment.
