Hyperthyroidism is a metabolic disorder, characterized by the excessive production of thyroxin by the thyroid gland. The increased metabolism causes loss of weight and symptoms such as trembling and sweating of hands. Goiter may also be present.
According to Ayurveda, impaired digestion of food leads to blockage of the minute channels causing an imbalance in the function of the thyroid gland. The first line of treatment is to clear these channels in order to balance body energies and restore the correct production and circulation of thyroxin.
