Do you feel tired all the time?

Do you have trouble concentrating, tired all the time? Wondering why you have been gaining weight even though you follow a strict diet plan? If you are suffering from these symptoms, then you may be a Thyroid patient. To be 100% sure, consult your doctor.

Before diving into how acupuncture treatment can help, what does the thyroid do?

Thyroid patients are those who are suffering from overactive or under active production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland resides in the neck just in front of the larynx. It produces a hormone that plays a vital role in every bodily function. It is a small part of a complex and intricate system called the Endocrine System. The endocrine system consists of hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, pineal, thymus, ovaries in women, testes in men and the placenta in pregnant women.

Thyroid disease falls into two categories: Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is characterised by an overactive thyroid gland that produces too much thyroid hormone. Typical symptoms include high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, moist skin, increased sweating, and increased appetite with weight loss, frequent bowel movements, nervousness and tremor. On the other hand, low thyroid function, hypothyroidism is characterised by an under-active thyroid gland. A typical system includes a hoarse voice, slowed speech, puffy face, drooping eyelids, increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, weight gain, dry hair and skin, and depression.

There are ways to help the Thyroid Treatment Naturally?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) regards both kinds of the thyroid as a Yin/Yang imbalance. When treating either of the conditions, TCM uses acupuncture, herbal medicine, and diet plan to rebalance the hormone level. According to the World Health Organisation, acupuncture can be used to treat thyroid diseases. Several reports have suggested that acupuncture and TCM can be beneficial in treating hyperthyroidism. 32 patients with hypothyroidism were treated at Shanghai Medical University, China with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal preparation. After a year of treatment, test reports were studied and were found that the clinical symptoms of hypothyroidism were remarkably improved.

The main goal of acupuncture is to rebalance the Homoeostasis of the body. Utilising carefully chosen trigger points and natural herbs, one nourishes the vital fluids and balances Yin and Yang while removing stress and stagnation within the meridians.

Alongside conventional medicine which helps in life-threatening situations, acupuncture helps to improve a patient’s quality of life. This blending for both traditional and conventional approach to treat diseases have been a standard practice in most of the hospitals in China for more than three decades.
