Homeopathy for Longstanding Hypothyroidism
In 2017-8 I took on a group of patients with a diagnosis of an under-active thyroid. My aim was to learn more about homeopathy for hypothyroidism. Specifically, I hoped to see whether treatment was more effective for patients who started homeopathic treatment sooner after diagnosis. In fact, there was no such pattern in the results. The 2 people on medication for their underactive thyroid for the longest period improved significantly.
Here one of them, “Nora” (not her real name) describes her experience of homeopathic treatment:
“Last year I decided that after 20+ years of hypothyroidism and all of its not so lovely symptoms, it was time I started to look at ways I could potentially help myself. I was overweight, tired, losing my memory (words), poor skin/nail/hair condition and prone to random bouts of horrible depression. On my first appointment Gill suggested I try going Gluten Free and explained how gluten intolerance was linked to hypothyroidism. I followed her suggestion and found that it wasn’t too hard to do and along with a healthier eating regime I have now lost a stone in weight – tick! On my second appointment I mentioned that my mood was starting to drop and I just couldn’t muster any enthusiasm for Christmas or life in general. Gill prescribed a ‘miracle’ remedy and within days my mood had lifted significantly and hasn’t dropped since – tick! By the third appointment I had noticed that my brain was sharper and I was able to recall words and situations more readily – big tick!.”
Nora concludes by saying her treatment “has improved my life massively and I am truly grateful for that”. Many thanks Nora for writing this account and allowing me to use it here. I hope it shows the potential for homeopathic treatment to benefit those with hypothyroidism, even after decades on medication.
