An underactive thyroid is an auto-immune disease. Patients, who have been recently diagnosed or who are on thyroid supplements for less than 2 years, can recover completely from the condition with homeopathic medicines. Patients who are on thyroid supplements for more than 2 years may not respond that effectively to homeopathy. So, it is wise to opt for homeopathy treatment at the earliest once you are diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. At Life Force, Dr. Shah has treated several patients with hypothyroidism successfully. Here’s a case of one of the hypothyroidism patients treated successfully at Life Force with homeopathic treatment.
A 29-year-old female patient visited Life Force for the treatment of Acne. She was suffering from it for the past 6 months. During the case taking, she mentioned her underactive thyroid complaint. She was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 6 months back, and she was on Thyroxine 25mcg once a day for the last 6 months. There were no major symptoms related to it. She had just complained of hair fall.
The patient had an average appetite. She loved eating chocolate and sweets. Her thirst for water was normal. She had no issues related to the urine and stool. Her sleep was sound and refreshing.
Psychological and Family Make-Up:
The patient was studying in college. Her father was running a business, and her mother was a housemaker. By nature, the patient was very reserved and introverted. Also, she was very anxious and restless.
Self and Family’s Medical History:
The patient had no major illnesses in the past. Her mother was suffering from an underactive thyroid.
At Life Force:
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed her medicines for both acne and an underactive thyroid.
On 12th December 2017, the patient reported that she was better with the medicines. Her hair fall had reduced than before. She had not repeated her thyroid profile so she was advised to do it to observe TSH levels in the blood.
On 2nd February 2018, the patient reported that she had checked her TSH levels and they were within the normal limits. She was advised to reduce the dose of Thyroxine to 25mcg on alternate days instead of daily along with our homeopathic medicines. Her complaint of hair fall was no longer present now. She was advised to continue the homeopathic medicine further.
On 18th June 2018, the patient reported that her TSH levels were within normal limits this time too. Since the beginning of the treatment follow-up, her thyroid levels returned to the normal limits with homeopathic medicines. She was advised to reduce her Thyroxine dose further to 25mcg only on Saturday and Sunday.
On 26th March 2019, the patient reported that her TSH was in normal range whenever she was checking it. She was advised to stop thyroxine completely and now she was only on homeopathic medicines.
On 25th April 2020, the patient reported that she was perfectly fine. She had stopped all other medicines and was only on homeopathy. Her TSH was always in range. She was in good health with the homeopathic medicines. Her dependency on thyroid supplements was completely removed after starting with homeopathic medicines.
The patient thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating her and improving her health.
This case illustrates that homeopathy can promote complete recovery from hypothyroidism and stop hair fall successfully and safely without any side effects. Also, homeopathy helps eliminate the dependency on thyroid supplements and restores the normal functioning of the thyroid.
