Healthcare India|May 2020
The malfunction of the thyroid gland can cause several other health issues and disorders. Positive Homoeopathy brings you details about the thyroid gland, and what happens when it shows an imbalance

Stress is not only an aggravating factor for many chronic illnesses, but can also precipitate many psychosomatic disorders. Hormonal imbalance is one of the most common disorders in the present scenario of stressful living, and the commonest among these are thyroid problems. Emotional conflicts often precipitate imbalances in the thyroid, and thyroid disorders are, in turn, responsible for mood swings, anxiety and other psychological problems. So, there is a marked relation between the mind, body and the thyroid gland.

The thyroid is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body, and is not to be confused with the parathyroid glands. The thyroid gland is found in the neck, below the thyroid cartilage.

The thyroid controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and decides how sensitive the body should be to other hormones. So any disturbance in the thyroid gland function results in suffering and symptoms in almost all the organs of the body. Diseases of the thyroid gland can result in either production of too much (overactive thyroid disease or hyperthyroidism); too little, known as underactive thyroid disease or hypothyroidism; thyroid hormone; thyroid nodules; and/or goiter. Thyroid problems are more prevalent in women than in men.
