Hypothyroidism – a condition that affects almost 10 % of women world wide and almost 3-5 % of the general population. A condition that afflicts millions of people yet goes so unnoticed in so many cases. More common than you would believe it to be, Hypothyroidism is one of the commonest causes that can make you feel persistently weak and tired.
When your thyroid gland is unable to make the required quantities of thyroid hormones, you end up having ‘too little thyroid hormones’ and this is what the condition is about. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland situated in the front of the neck and it produces certain essential hormones. The thyroid hormones affect growth and development and also control the way your body uses energy. Hence deficiency of the same can have widespread consequences on the whole body making you feel weak and tired besides a host of other symptoms.
The good news is that once detected, Hypothyroidism can be effectively treated and the disease can be kept under control. Conventional medication entails taking supplements of the hormones whereas homeopathy stimulates better functioning of the thyroid gland so that it can produce the hormones on its own.
