What is Thyroid disorder ?
Thyroid disorder is a condition that affects the thyroid gland, a small gland located in the neck that produces hormones that regulate various bodily functions. There are two main types of thyroid disorders, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces too little of the hormone thyroxine, which can cause fatigue, weight gain, joint and muscle pain, and depression. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine, which can cause anxiety, weight loss, and irregular or rapid heartbeat. At our homeopathy clinic, we specialize in treating both types of thyroid disorders and helping our patients to recover from the disease.
