Thyroiditis : what to do?


Hi doctor, I’d like a lovely new thyroid. 😄

What is thyroiditis?

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland located in the neck, which :

  • Secretes hormones.
  • Balances the body.
  • Regulates.

Inflammation of the thyroid gland is called thyroiditis.

This disease particularly affects women.

The main forms of thyroiditis are :

  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
  • Postpartum thyroiditis.
  • Graves’ disease.

In case of thyroid disorders, it is advisable to consult an endocrinologist, who will prescribe a TSH test.

Thyroiditis is often triggered after a great stress: death, conflict, emotional break-up…

This is not the cause of the disease, but the last straw.

It is highly recommended to start emotional work in case of thyroid disorder.

Liver detox

A clogged liver, especially when taking medication, affects the thyroid.

Chinese medicine links energy, emotions and the physical body.

A few acupuncture sessions can help to restore the balance of the organs.

Often, energy blockages prevent the body from functioning properly.

Sea baths

The sea is full of trace elements and mineral salts that are essential for the thyroids.

Regular bathing in the sea helps to make up for any deficiencies.
