Thyroid and Ayurveda

The thyroid is a butterfly- shaped gland that sits low on the front of the neck. Your thyroid lies below your Adam’s apple, along the front of the windpipe. The thyroid has two side lobes, connected by a bridge (isthmus) in the middle. When the thyroid is its normal size, you can’t feel it. Brownish-red in colour, the thyroid is rich with blood vessels. Nerves important for voice quality also pass through the thyroid.
The thyroid secretes several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones. The main hormone is thyroxin, also called T4. Thyroid hormones act throughout the body, influencing metabolism, growth and development, and body temperature. During infancy and childhood adequate thyroid hormone is crucial for brain development.

Hyperthyroidism:
Excessive thyroid hormone production. Hyperthyroidism is most often caused by Graves disease or an overactive thyroid nodule.
Hypothyroidism:
Low production of thyroid hormone. Thyroid damage caused by autoimmune disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism.

What does Ayurveda says about Thyroid?

According to the thyroid is located in the 6th tissue level or Majjadhatu. Majja is controlled by kapha dosha. According to Ayurveda the thyroid function is controlled by Pitta dosha. Pitta is responsible for all of the metabolic actions carried out by the thyroid gland.

There is no direct mention of the thyroid gland in Ayurveda, but a disease by the name Galaganda, characterized by neck swelling, is well known. The first description of neck swelling was mentioned in Atharva Veda (the last of the four Vedas) by the name apachi. Charaka mentioned the disease under 20 sleshma vikaras. Sushruta {renowned ancient Indian surgeon} in Sareera Sthana has mentioned that of the seven layers of the skin, the sixth layer Rohini is the seat of Galaganda In Nidana Sthana he described Galaganda as two encapsulated small or big swellings in the anterior angle of the neck, which hang like scrotum, whereas Charaka mentioned Galaganda as a solitary swelling

The climatic conditions, water supply, dietary conditions, etc., are mentioned as the main etiological factors. Susrutha stated that rivers flowing towards east might give rise to the occurrence of Galaganda.

Although these facts were mentioned centuries ago, it is still an accepted fact that environmental factors, especially iodine, plays an important role in the functioning of the thyroid gland. Any imbalance in iodine metabolism can upset the thyroid condition; either too much or too little iodine can result in the development of goiter.
