ABSTRACT

Thyroid disorders are one of the most common endocrine disorders in the world. The thyroid gland is responsible for the body?s metabolism, protein production, and calcium level balance in the body. Disease in thyroid gland arises due to irregular levels of thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism is due to under activity of thyroid gland and decreased levels of thyroid hormones. It is a quite common disease and can occur at any age. For hypothyroidism, most of the patients are ultimately rendered with the lifelong supplementation of synthetic thyroid hormones. Ayurvedic treatment can be an ideal way to get rid of daily hormone supplementation. The Ayurvedic approach towards hypothyroidism has become an effective and popular way as it does not depend on synthetic drugs and so has no side effects.
