Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed by a variety of cell and antibody-mediated immune processes
Mrs. H. 33-year-old female came with multiple complaints. She was having Hashimoto's thyroiditis i.e. Autoimmune Hypothyroidism with Ovarian Cyst. Conventional Doctors advised her lifetime intake of Thyroxin tablet and surgery for ovarian cyst if size increased.
Before treatment at HomoeoCARE
Her report of Anti Thyroglobulin Antibody was 344.26 and TSH was 10.03. None of the conventional medicines can reduce forget about stopping the autoimmune processes going in the body. But this was possible with Homoeopathy at HomoeoCARE.
After 4 months of treatment at HomoeoCARE, when asked for repeat ATG (Anti Thyroglobulin) or Anti TPO (Thyroid peroxidase antibodies), the patient was surprised as Endocrinologist never recommended them to monitor it!!! Then why we were so keen on it. AntiTPO is an indicator of Auto Immune (Self-destruction) processes going on in the thyroid gland. So for Thyroid to work properly this self-destruction process has to STOP. Only then TSH, T3, T4 will turn normal and then only we can put the patient off external Thyroxin.
How can we think of synthesis of hormone and simultaneous destruction of gland !!!
For Homoeopaths TPO is important as our medicines have the power to stop the Autoimmune processes and it is evident from her first thyroid profile itself. From 344.26 to directly 2.8. In another 6 months as the destruction has stopped, next goal was to achieve the synthesis of body’s own T3, T4 despite patient being on 50mg/day of thyroxin. Increase in T3, T4 despite external source being just 50mg, an increase would signify SYNTHESIS OF BODY’S OWN T3, T4. This started happening in September 2010 when her thyroid profile was normal. So next step was to stop Thyroxine completely and it was done on 25th Aug 2010. Being on no external source of hormone and still reports turning normal was cherishing for the patient as well as us. But what about her Dysmenorrhoea and Right Ovarian Cyst diagnosed in 2008. Homeopathy is a holistic science treating her thyroid and leaving her cyst at mercy of Gynaecologist would not be justified. We have to treat her as a whole.
After treatment at HomoeoCARE
After treatment at HomoeoCare within one year, her cyst disappeared and normal follicle was seen. After 1 year of treatment not only thyroid started to work but also her ovarian cyst was gone. Her swelling and tiredness were gone. Her constipation was better. Her dysmenorrhoea and heavy clots were no longer there. She is off thyroxine since a year. Her weight reduced from 60.3 kgs To 55.1 kgs. She was saved from ovarian surgery because of Right Homoeopathic medicines at HomoeoCare.
