The thyroid glands are located at the base of the throat and thyroid cancer affects these glands. Thyroid glands produce the hormones which help in controlling blood pressure, heart rate, weight and body temperature.

A person who has cancer of the thyroid glands should consult a thyroid specialist in Nagpur or elsewhere. The thyroid specialist practicing Ayurveda will be a good option as Ayurveda provides treatment that is complementary to the allopathic treatment of this cancer. Nowadays even Ayurvedic doctors make use of modern technology for the diagnosis and treatment of various ailments.

Symptoms and Causes of Thyroid Cancer

Anyone who has this cancer will have lumps in the anterior neck close to the Adam’s apple. At the same time, he or she will experience hoarseness, difficulty in swallowing, enlarged glands in the neck and problem in breathing.

According to allopathic system of medicine cancer of any kind is caused by excessive exposure to ultra violet rays, carcinogens like radon gas and asbestos, exposure to harmful radiation and others.

On the contrary, Ayurveda defines the causes of thyroid cancer by an imbalance in the kapha dosha. The doshas are the life force of the body and there are three main doshas namely vata, kafa and pitta. An imbalance in any of these doshas can result in ailments in the body. An Ayurvedic thyroid specialist doctor will make sure that the kapha dosha becomes balanced in order to cure the patient from cancer of the thyroid.

Treatment of Thyroid Cancer in Ayurveda

For cancer of any kind the first and foremost treatment that an ayurvedic thyroid specialist will administer is the panchkarma therapy. The panchkarma therapy aims at removing toxins from the body which cause the cancer.

Five different therapies namely svedana, virechana, vamana, basti and nasya are the five treatments used on thyroid cancer treatment. These therapies involve consuming medicated ghee which is a form of clarified butter.

• Svedana is a steam therapy that pushes the body to perspire and remove all unwanted toxins.
• Vamana is a therapy in which vomiting is induced by administering different herbal and mineral medicines.
• Virechana is a purgative therapy which is also induced by herbs.
• Basti is the treatment that involves medicated enema with different herbal concoctions.
• In the nasya treatment medicines are administered through the nose.

A thyroid specialist in Nagpur or elsewhere treating a patient of thyroid cancer should be an expert at these therapies.

  • Echinacea
