  • Homeopathic Perspective on Thyroid Disorders
    Author : Dr. R. K. Manchanda  |  Rating:   |  3 Comments  |  20604 times viewed
    Goiter was first described in China in 2700 BC. Da Vinci described thyroid as a thing that is designed to fill empty spaces in the neck. According to Parry - thyroid works as a buffer to protect the brain from surges in blood flow. Roman physicians have reported thyroid enlargement as a sign of puberty. In 500 AD Abdul Kasan Kelebis Abis performed the first goiter excision in Baghdad, the procedure remained unknown. In 1200s AD advancements in goiter procedures included applying hot irons through the skin and slowly withdrawing them at right angles. The remaining mass or pedicled tissue was excised. Patients were tied to the table and held down to prevent unwanted movement, but most died from haemorrhage or sepsis. In 1646 AD Wilhelm Fabricus performed a thyroidectomy with standard surgical scalpels, for which he was imprisoned. In 1656 thyroid was first identified by the anatomist Thomas Wharton. In 1808 AD Guillaume Dupuytren performed a total thyroidectomy, but the patient died post operatively of "shock".
  • Overactive Thyroid Symptoms
    Author : Dr. B.S. Suvarna  |  Rating:   |  1 Comments  |  6767 times viewed
    An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis) results from the overproduction of the thyroid hormones, T4 and T3, by the thyroid gland. In three quarters of patients this is the result of the presence in the blood of an anti body that stimulates the thyroid, not only to secrete excessive amounts of thyroid hormones but also, in some, to increase the size of the thyroid gland, producing a Goiter. This type of hyperthyroidism is known as Graves disease, named after one of the physicians who described the condition in considerable details more than 200 years ago. The cause of antibody production is not known but, as Grave's disease runs in families' genes must play a part.

    Diminished production of thyroid hormone (Psora/ Syphilis), leading to clinical manifestations of thyroid insufficiency, including low metabolic rate (Psora), tendency to weight gain (Psora/ Sycosis), somnolence (Pseudopsora) and sometimes myxedema (Sycosis). It may be congenital and secondary or acquired. Syn: athyrea. Lack of thyroid secretion since infancy (Psora). Deficient functioning of the thyroid gland due to some causes other than thyroid. Onset may be very insidious.
  • Thyroid Nodules
    Author : Dr. B.S. Suvarna  |  Rating:   |  2 Comments  |  13348 times viewed
    Single lumps or nodules in the thyroid are common and can occur at any age, women are likely to be more affected than men. A single thyroid nodule varies in size from that of a pea to a golf ball or even larger like a goiter. The nodule is usually discovered by accident while you are washing or looking in a mirror. Bleeding into the nodule may cause pain which alerts you to its presence, alternatively, the nodule may be discovered during a medical examination for some quite unrelated problem, although neither you nor your family have had noticed it before. Most women are aware of the significance of a lump in the breast and so naturally suspect that a nodule in the thyroid may also mean cancer. This is why your GP will probably want you to see a specialist, in fact great majority of single thyroid nodules are not cancers of the thyroid.
