Permanent Cure of Hypothyroidism With Ayurvedic Medicine

Posted on the 07 December 2017 by Dr Vikram Chauhan @Planetayurveda9

Hypothyroidism is a disorder associated with inadequate production of thyroid hormones due to structural or functional impairment of the thyroid gland. It is called underactive thyroid disorder as it slows down body's metabolism.

Thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped endocrine gland located at the front of the neck and is responsible for producing thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) which regulates the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates and fats thus raising basal cell temperature. Thyroid secretes Thyroxin (T4) which stimulates the consumption of oxygen
