Among all these chakras and glands, there is this one gland responsible for controlling the energy and metabolism of our body. Metabolism is the process by which cells of our body break down food, extract energy out of it, and save some for later use. This breakdown process is known as the metabolism of an individual. That is the thyroid gland. Situated right behind the food pipe and in front of the larynx, these are butterfly-shaped glands, pink in color. Their secretion is two major hormones for our body, thyroxine, thyroid stimulating hormone, and triiodothyronine. 

As the thyroid gland is associated with controlling the metabolism of an individual 

Our thyroid's primary purpose is to regulate your metabolism by producing and releasing metabolic hormones. Hormones and metabolism are pitta dosha's province in Ayurveda. The thyroid's metabolic role is analogous to the Ayurvedic idea of Agni, or digestive fire.

One of the most essential and sensitive endocrine glands is the thyroid gland. Because it reacts quickly to stress, the global prevalence of hypothyroidism is increasing fast.


Hypothyroidism


An underactive thyroid, often known as hypothyroidism, is the most prevalent thyroid condition, affecting around 6% to 10% of women. Hashimoto's autoimmune illness is the most pervasive cause of primary hypothyroidism.

An underactive thyroid is a Kapha disorder, according to Ayurvedic principles. The characteristics of Kapha are heavy and sluggish, which correspond to the symptoms of an underactive thyroid. Slow metabolism, also known as Amanda Agni, is typical among Kapha people and those with a Kapha imbalance.

Hypothyroidism is also notorious for its impact on the menstrual cycle. It inhibits the menstrual cycle in negative ways. A person suffering from it may experience a delayed cycle, leap in cycles, and heavy or light flow during cycles.

Treatment suggested by Ayurveda.


  • Avoid the use of processed foods and starchy goods: Ayurveda is strictly against consuming food that is high in starch content as it makes your hypothyroidism even worse. Due to high starchy food, the body is exposed to a high amount of starch. When starch is converted into simple sugar during that process, insulin is released, which inhibits the call for more thyroid stimulating hormones, which results in disturbing the whole need and supply balance of hormones of the body if a person already has an imbalance of thyroid gland.

  • Eating up greens: Including more green vegetables in the diet can help with hypothyroidism. As greens that are also known as cruciferous vegetables, are rich in various macro-micronutrients and contain a high amount of fiber and vitamins. When a person takes a diet that is high in fiber and vitamins, it helps in better absorption of the medicine that controls the excess thyroxine hormone in the body.
