Management of Hypothyroidism in Ayurveda

Thyroid gland is one of the most important and sensitive endocrine gland. As it easily responds to stress and stimuli the global incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing day by day. The major function of thyroid gland is to control the rate of metabolism. The principle function of thyroxine is to act as a catalyst of the nature of a 'spark' for the maintenance of oxidative metabolism in most tissues. Cells in the body take their 'cue' from thyroxine.  The amount of stimulation the cells receive from thyroxine will determine how 'quickly' they perform their functions1. These functions similar with the description of Agni 'angati vyapnoti iti va agnihi' and 'agnyate mreeyate iti va agnihi

Hypothyroidism results from inadequate production of thyroid hormone. Any structural or functional defects of thyroid gland that significantly impairs its output of hormones will lead to the hypo metabolic state of hypothyroidism2.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are notorious for their nonspecific nature and for the way in which they mimic many symptoms of other diseases. So it often remains undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Vertigo, weight gain, mood disturbances, easy fatigability, tiredness, lethargy, slowness of memory, intellect and thought, menstrual irregularities, cold intolerance, dry rough skin, thin brittle hair, hair fall, Muscle stiffness, aching, myalgias, cramps, weakness and fatigue, myxedema, constipation, hoarseness of voice, goiter etc.3


There is no direct mention of thyroid gland in ayurveda. But a disease by the name galaganda is mentioned in samhitas. The earliest description of neck swelling is found in atharva veda by the name apachi. Charaka first described about the disease under the 20 varieties of sleshma vikaras10. Susutha has described that out of seven layers of the skin, the sixth layer Rohini is galaganda rogadhistana (Su.Sa.4/4). In nidana sthana he described galaganda as two encapsulated small or big swellings in the anterior angle of the neck, which hang like scrotum11 (Su.Ni.11), whereas charaka mentioned galaganda as solitary swelling (Ch.Ch.11).  

The etiological factors in galaganda include climatic conditions, water supply, dietary conditions and other surroundings etc. Susrutha stated that rivers flowing towards east might give rise to the occurrence of galaganda11. Bhela described that sleepda and galaganda are more common in prachya desa (eastern part) of the country12, and the persons consuming predominantly fish are liable to develop galgaganda. Harita samhitakara described the role of dustambu and krimi dosha in the precipitation of Galaganda. Kashyapa samhitakara13added that any part of the country which is cold, damp, with densely grown long trees, water stagnation and heavy rains may be prone for the development of Galaganda. 

From the above descriptions ons Galaganda can be correlated with goiter or some tumour pathology, where thyroid functions may or may not be affected. But hypothyroidism is not just a localized disease. It has many symptoms related to many systems of the body. So it is better not to restrict hypothyroidism with galaganda.

Management of Hypothyroidism  

As mentioned by charaka10 "vikaranamakusalo" exact nomenclature is not necessary for all the diseases. It insists on diagnosis of constitutional status of the disease.

As per the nidana Hypothyroidism can be classified as 1.Primary (thyroid failure) 2. Secondary, (due to pituitary TSH deficit). And 3. Tertiary (due to hypothalamic deficiency of TRH), the later two are rare and may not be amicable to Ayurvedic treatments.

If hypothyroidism results due to Genetical and hereditary defects, these comes under adibala pravritta vyadhis and these are asadhya.

If hypothyroidism results due to Congenital defects like thyroid gland agenesis, dysgenesis, ectopic thyroid gland comes under Janmabala pravritta vyadhis. These are preventable if proper pathyapathya is followed during pregnancy.

The main cause of hypothyroidism is iodine deficiency, as per sarvadha sarva bahvanam-iodine containing drugs like shigru, jalakumbhi are advised here.

Another main cause autoimmune thyroid disease is characterized by gradual lymphatic infiltration and progressive destruction of the functional thyroid tissue.  So it may be Yapya, means that the treatment should be continued Jeevanaparvantam with immuno modulatory drugs. 

Selection of Drugs Acting at Various Levels

  1. At hypothalamo pituitary level: anti stress drugs, medhya rasayana drugs, nasya karma may be beneficial. 
  2. At thyroid gland level: thyroid stimulatory drugs are recommended here.  
  3. At metabolism level: deepana, pacahana, ushna, teekshna, sukshma, lekhana drugs which pep-up body metabolism is recommended. 
  4. Immuno-modulatory drugs for autoimmune related hypothyroidism.

As the symptoms of hypothyroidsm are notorious, the symptomatic treatment is followed according to the suitability of the individual cases, i.e., sthoulya, sodha etc.

The recent research work done by Dr. Tripathi and others.  Animal studies have revealed that guggul supports healthy thyroid function, mostly by increasing the conversion of less active Thyroxin (T4) to more active Triiodotyronine (T3) through increasing thyroid proteolytic activity and the uptake of iodine into thyroxin, and without increasing the production of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone.

Selenium is required for a number of enzymes known as selenoproteins. The chemical reaction, which converts thyroid hormone T4 into T3, is catalyzed by specific selenoproteins. Selenium deficiency can impair thyroid function. The drug pippali increases the absroption of selinium andthis may be cause for the effectiveness of vardhamana pipppli in hypothyroid conditions.

The patient who has complications like heart diseases like bradycardia and cardiomagaly, myxedema coma, are Pratyakhyeya indicates Achikitsavastha of Vyadhi.

The present trial drug kanchanara guggulu (Sa. Sam), is found in usage for many years for Gandhamala, Apache, Arbuda, Grandhi, Kushta, etc, has been selected to evaluate the efficacy of this drug in hypothyroidism. Its main ingredients kanchanara, varuna, triphala, trikatu, trijataka may also useful in hypothyroidism.

Shigru is a well-known plant in India. It is rich in iodine, which is an essential component of thyroid hormones, T3 and T4.  It has deepana, pacahna, kapha vata hara properties. It is recommended in galaganda, kandu, sotha, apachi, vrana, medoroga, vidradhi, gulma etc.is selected as anupana along with KNG. It appears to provide it with the nutrition and substitutes the Iodine, thyroid gland require. Hence the drug is selected for the study.

The main aim of the study is  

  1. To normalize the levels of TSH in the fresh cases.  
  2. To maintain the TSH levels in the patients who are already using the allopathic drug thyronorm and gradually replacing the allopathic drug with the trail drug.  

For fresh cases the trial drug started immediately after the diagnosis confirmed.

For the patients who are already using thyronorm/ eltroxin they were advised to withdraw the 25 mcg of the drug before starting the trail drug. The patients were observed carefully for 1 month, if they are comfortable with the drug and dosage and TSH levels are maintained well they are advised to withdraw another 25mcg. This way the drug will be totally replaced with the trail drug.

The trail was conducted on 32 patients from the Govt Ayurvedic Hospital, Erragadda; the progress of the patient is observed and recorded. Analysis was made to assess the results in relation to various factors. 32 patients were included and examined thoroughly examined and the Diagnosis of hypothyroidism is based on a person's medical history, a physical examination, and blood tests. Of the blood tests for hypothyroidism, the TSH is the most sensitive test14.

Comment Sir,
I am a 50 years old man.I am medium built, fair and my weight is 66.5kgs.A couple of months back I was 71 Kgs.I am working for Kolkata Police as a SHO for past 25 years. Due to flexible hours of working and high work pressure I can't do physical exercises regularly. I have to carry huge mental tension due to my work load. Now for the past couple of years I have noticed frequent mood swing, suspicious, lethergetic and sleepy during afternoon hours specially but during night I don’t enjoy sound sleep as I was enjoying before and the quality is moderate to average sleep or sometimes poor sleep depending upon situation, mental condition. I have fearful mind and quarrelsome attitude and my sleep affects much after a mental agony.
Of late I noticed hair fall, shoulder pain, rough hairs, and rough skin problems and went to a recognized Path Lab and got tested and found high cholesterol, triglyceride and low T3 and T4 while TSH was found high as 12.9.
I didn't take any Allopathic medicine but tried a few homeopathy medicines from local homeopaths but ultimately got no results. I am prone to cold also. I am occasionally with tearful eyes when watching movies or hearing sentimental talks. Gets irritated quickly forgetful and inattentive and can’t concentrate, suspicious and can’t tolerate spicy and oily food due to belching and blotting effect. Acid and gas reflux could be seen in case of taking spicy food. I have coarse voice and nodule in vocal cord. Recently under advice of my endocrinologist I am on Thyronox 75 mg once in early morning. Although I have started treatment recently but I believe that my ailment is long back.Any Ayurvedic help doctor?
Thanking you and regards

Comment I am patient of Hypothyroidism since last 20 years . Initially i was put on thyroxin tablet 1 and half tablets per day by endocrinologist . At that time my T3 and T4 was normal but TSH was high . When i started taking tablets , i noticed its side effect like excessive sweating , convulsions , insomnia , wait gain etc.My T3 , T4 was also disturbed . When this symptoms increased , i stopped taking eltroxin and since last 7 to 8 years , i am not taking this medicine and taking some Ayurveda medicine . I have come across many incidence which creates lot of confusion about the treatment on the hypothyroidism. I would like to quote one incidence that occured 4 years back when i undergone surgery of fibroid 's removal i.e. hysterectomy before that i was on progesterone medicine which resulted into leveled down the TSH. It is also observed in my case that there are some symptoms of hyperthyroidism and some symptoms of hypothyroidism. After having 2nd child birth , symptoms of hypothyroidism appeared in my body.

While going through the website , it come to my notice about your article and treatment on Hypothyroidism . You are therefore requested to kindly guide me about further treatment and advice on the basis given above case history.

Comment My daughter used to have frequent wheezing. constipation was a regular problem 3 month old baby to 3 years baby. when she was 8 year old(in sept 2006) I found swelling around her neck and got her blood tested. Her RSH was 11.4 and result of FNAC was lymphocytic thyroiditis. The endocronologist wrote clinically euthyroid. He started Eltroxin 50 microgms. From then on her TSH was normal. Her mentrual cycle started when she was around 11 years. when she was around 13 years the drug requirement rose to 62.5 micrograms. now also at the age of 16 years,she is taking 62.5 mi.gms and TSH is normal. what are the precautions i should take for healthy endocrine glands. how about her marriage and child birth. Is there any permanent solution for the problem in ayurveda or the ayuredic medicine also has to be taken life time. of late she is suffering severe allergy, breathless ness and skin rashes. please help.

Comment Dear Dr.
My compliments for writing a highly professional, objective and informative article, which is rarely found on internet these days when Ayurved has become a business resource rather than our Ancient science of healing.
I seek your advise whether there are any preparations marketed by any of the National Aur Pharma company like Dabur, Baidhyanath or any other one for hypothyroidism, the one mentioned by you. I am in mid seventies and recently diagnosed with self inflicted Hyponatreamia (low sodium), since I have been taking low sodium and excessive water for over decades to control my mild diastolic B.P. On detailed investigations, I have now also been found to have hypothyroidism and mild hyperglycaemia. The clinical symptoms also conform to classical hypothyroidism. I have been a tennis and badminton player having extraordinary good health with no history of hospitalization till 2010. However, after the sodium levels fell below threshold I had to be hospitalized and underwent detailed investigations.
A retired person , but I continue to be professionally quite busy with GOI assignments on expert bodies and I do not wish to give up the profession as far as possible, although have reduced the assignments considerably. I go for a walk atlest thrice a week and do Prayanama too. Here I am seeking your valuable advice and expressmy grateful thanks in anticipation of your kind cosideration.

Regards and my best wishes,

Comment Sir,

My wife started taking thyronorm one year back as TSH was 20.

At that time T3 was 110. It increased to about 130 after taking of thyronorm 50 mg. Latter thyronorm 25 mg was started.

But now after adjustment of dosage by different doctors, and presently taking 50 mg thyronorm, the T3 is hovering around 80.

Why is T3 level reduced even after thyronorm 50 is being taken regularly?

Please guide if your ayurvedic formation is likely to be benificial in this case.

Comment Dear Doctor,
I am 53 years old. Just one month back I noticed a swelling on the left side of his neck.

The Doctor treating me asked me to conduct tests of Sonography of Thyroid & Neck, F.N.A.C,,Thyroid Function test, (T3, T4 and TSH tests).The reading of T3 is 121.3 ng/dl, T4 is 5.26 mcg/dl and TSH is 0.564 microlU/ml (All readings are within the normal range). The F.N.A.C. report indicate No malignant cells seen, there is a cellular hyperplasa seen without any increased or abnormal mitosis. Mild inflammation seen which needs clinical correlation & correlation with thyroid status.The sonography report indicates Left Thyroid enlarged in size, normal in shape and shows smooth margin. It measures 5.7 cm x 5.5 cm x 3.0 cm.There is a well defined large round area of altered echogenicity is seen in left thyroid gland. It measures 4.9 cm L x 4.5 cm B x 3.4 cm D (1-2 cystic areas are seen within it). This doctor suggested to go for surgery. When the second opinion was taken from an ayurvedic doctor, he advised to go for ayurvedic medicines and not for surgery. According to him, since there is no cancerous cells and report indicates normalcy, there is no need for surgery and medicines will solve the swelling. Please advise.

Dear Dr. Lakshmi,

My daughter aged 17 has been showing the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism like lethargy, slowness of memory, intellect and thought, coarse and dry hair and skin, constipation, muscle cramps, cold intolerance, fatigue and swelling in the region of her neck for about 2 - 3 years. But each time we checked her TSH levels, it showed within normal reference range. The recent test done yesterday shows her TSH levels to be 2.34. Doctors always maintain that she is okay and is not having any thyroid disorder. Then what could be the reason for these symptoms? Should she take any medication.

Please advise.

Comment Dear Mother Dr Laxmi Prasun,

Could you help me with my 7 days (new born) old daughter was diagnosed with TSH value 163. I heard that it is abnormal and dangerous and the pediatrician has ordered one more TSH test tomorrow she will be 12 days old.

Doctor even hinted that she should be kept on medicines after the test result up to 2 or 3 years. She is very cute and small I cannot think of medicines to her at this age. Please advice if there is any alternative to this because I am worried the conventional medicines would destroy here immune system even more. Please share your experience and valuable thoughts. Thank you and the contributors for this great site."


"Doctors have declared it is hypothyroidism and started the medication to take thyronorm 50mg daily in the morning empty stomach ( before milking ) with distilled water.
Could any body please help me in this situation? I am very depressed- my wife's BP, TSH, Sugar all were normal during whole pregnancy and we do not have any thyroid hereditary evidence.

Comment As per prithvi's post... we have been to Mr. Anjaneyulu.. a guy in his late 50s but looks like in late 30s.. well we took his medicines with capsules and some ointment.. he assured that my life is about change in 2 weeks from now.. it seems he charges 10k for a dose and treatment lasts for 2 weeks but in rare cases 4 weeks.. he gave us a challenge or money back policy.. So I couldn't ask for more...

Will post back my results in 2 weeks.. so hold your breath people..

17-Apr-2012 21:46 PM

Comment Guys,
My mom had thyroid.. we heard about a guy named Anjaneyulu who is a traditional ayurvedic practioner in Hyderabad.. who would see patients only on sunday. We went to him through a reference in the US by a scientist who was suffering from severe hyperthyroidism which is normal after using his medicines..

So we met him and ee gave us some herbal medicine said to have been made by himself in his 100 acre farm where he grows his own moolikas..
Believe me after a week dosage.. we got it tested after another week and the levels are crazy.. my mom's thyroid levels are at the low range of what we call normal.. I was living in the USA and never though this is possible.. but that great man.. my God.. My mom is doing great for the last 1 year..

So thought he could be of some help to my fellow readers.. his number is 9441609327 anjaneyulu so good luck guys...

Comment Hi Dr., I am a hypothyroid since last 15 years. My weight is 92 kgs.I was taking 1 tab of altroxin i.e 100 mcg since last many years. I went to an aryuvedic doctor
who prescribed me to take kanchanar guggulu daily morning and evening after food. Subsequent to taking kanchanar guggulu my tsh went up and I had to increase altroxin from 100mcg to 175 mcg.to keep my tsh in check. I had been having various hypothyroid problems like acute pain in muscles, frequent diohrea, acute pain in stomach, allergy since quiet some years now. This has increased suddenly more and i am presently suffering from acute pain in muscles particularly shouldier joint , hands and neck muscles and back.
What should I do? Should i continue with kanchanar guggulu. Could you give me some suggestions that what should i do to ease out my problems.What should i takr to reduce my hypothyroid.

Please may you help me to help myself so I can help others?

About 6 years ago we spent almost 3 months in a ashram to learn yoga and one of these yoga’s was Karma yoga to help the poor. This time I am in need of some help and I am happy to pay for this.
Please reply as I really need some help.

I had never been allergic to anything in my life. I informed the doc but have not changed the medicine till now. Why did this medicine react?

Comment Dear Dr.Lakshmiprasun ,

I am male 47 years old, Weight 80 kg, height 5'-10" and i have Hypothyroidism, the TSH lies in the range of 75. I am taking two thyroxine 50 microgram daily. I have elevated uric acid mostly 8.1 to 8.2, slight BP and tinnitus (ringing in the ear), hair loss and decreased libido and weak erection. So you see all associated with low or underactive thyroid issue. I have slightly diffused goiter and feel compression while swallowing food. My sleep is ok and thirst and hunger are also good. I dont have constipation. I developed Alopecia areata in 1995 and has been recovered but few patches on the beared area. The cause of the Hypothyroidism is not iodine deficiency but the autoimmune system. I have thyroid antibodies in the blood confirming that i have Hashimoto Thyroiditis

Please guide and tell me what are the chances of recoery or at least i can keep my TSH below 5 without thyroxine.

.I am 70 plus age and september 12 2011 blood work shows a raise in the ths from 6.3 to 9.3,both FT3 and FT4 are within limits.cholesterol230 and B.P hypes between 129 and160 over 64 and 74.I have been avoiding all medications the last 20 years,and controlling through diet yoga pranayama and walking. now doctor is worried about the rise in cholesterol.She advised me to go on Livothyroxine I got the medicine ,i am still not convinced that is the route to go when i read the after effects.i would love to try ayurveda which i am sure will not have any adverse effects
.I live abroad and will be spending 6 months in India .Is there a place you can suggest in Kerala where they can administer the treatment fitting your protocol.or i can come and see you
should i start on levothyroxine and continue to ayurveda when i come to India.Thank you very much

I read your article and found it informative.The analytical approach towards
prognosis of the disease is apt.The results of your clinical trial are ancouraging.
Singal drug trials over hypothyroidism may yield some pertinent and sub-
