Tip of the Day

Virender Sodhi, M.D., N.D., states, “With hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s disease your body no longer makes enough thyroid hormones, so many doctors prescribe thyroid supplements. They are safe and effective, but you have to take them for the rest of your life. However, Ayurvedic herbs like ashwagandha, guggul, and kachnar can actually stimulate your body to produce thyroid hormones on its own again. I have seen this happen in many patients, and an Indian study supports the use of ashwagandha and kachnar for hypothyroidism. A doctor trained in Ayurvedic medicine can help you determine which treatment is most appropriate and what doses to take.”
