  • An underactive thyroid gland or hypothyroidism is a new epidemic of the society.
  • Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, loss of energy, cold intolerance and menstrual irregularities in women.
  • All people who are 50+ should have their thyroid profile done as screening test for thyroid deficiency.
  • Tests to detect hypothyroidism are TSH and T4. TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) is the most important and sensitive test for hypothyroidism. An abnormally high TSH means hypothyroidism.
  • In younger people, thyroid deficiency should be investigated for in the presence of infertility, menstrual irregularity, pregnancy, weight gain.
  • Thyroid deficiency is treated by thyroxine or synthetic T4 hormone replacement.
  • Patients who develop hyperthyroid symptoms at any time during thyroxine supplementation should have their TSH tested. If TSH is low, then T4 dose needs to be reduced.
  • Even mild thyroid deficiency during pregnancy can affect the growth or fetus. Therefore, thyroid supplementation dose is much higher in pregnancy than in non-pregnancy.
  • In the elderly, thyroid supplementation is always started in low dose than in adults.
  • If left untreated, thyroid deficiency can result in osteoporosis and atrial fibrillation. Osteoporosis may lead to recurrent fractures and atrial fibrillation with stroke.
  • Iodized salt is used to prevent thyroid deficiency.
  • Non-iodized salt is only used in two conditions, firstly in patient with thyroid inflammation and secondly while doing Jalneti in naturopathy and yoga related nasal wash technique.

Preventing death due to hypothermia

People can die of hypothermia in this season. Imagine a situation when you come across two people lying in a JJ cluster area with no clothes early in the morning. One of them is shivering and the other one is not. The one who is shivering indicates that his body is trying to compensate with the low body core temperature.

The other one, who is not shivering, may be dead, dying or normal.

Recall your naturopathy teaching “Sar Thanda, Pet Naram and Paon Garam”. If the soles of the feet and the feet are cold and the person is not shivering, this is a medical emergency. On the contrary, if the person is not shivering and the feet are warm, it is not medical emergency.

Therefore, hypothermia with no shivering and hyperthermia with no sweating are bad signs.

Vedic science, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Allopathy all talk about eating less to stay healthy. Following are the ways to eat less:

  • The brain gets a signal that you have eaten only after 20 minutes, therefore, chew every bite of food at least 15 times. It not only provides enough hormones for enzymes but also sends signals to the brain. Therefore, the time spent per meal should be 20 minutes.
  • The taste buds are only on the tip and side of the tongue. If you gulp food, the brain will not get signals. Eating small pieces and chewing them properly also sends the signals through the taste buds.
  • The size of the fullness of the stomach also decides how much one can eat. The brain gets signal only when the stomach is 100% full. Therefore, one should not overeat and full the stomach to its size. Also if you eat less and over a period of time the size of the stomach will get shrunken.
