Thyroid Dysfunction

People suffering from Hypothyroidism, tend to develop gout. This dysfunction in our body causes the production of uric acid and brings pain in the joints and even arthritis. For the treatment of gout, the Ricinus Communis Linn or the root of Eranda is used to make Amrutadi Taila, an herbal remedy. The oil is used orally and for external application.


Ayurveda considers the enlarged thyroid as an imbalance of Kapha (water) and Meda (fat). If you have hypothyroidism, you need to limit the quantities of certain foods in your diets including sweet potatoes, broccoli, pearl millet, lima beans, maize, cauliflower, soy, and cabbage. If you have hyperthyroidism, you need to avoid foods such as hydrogenated vegetable oil, red meat, added sugars, enriched milk, caffeine and iodine rich foods etc.
