This article will explain what is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. What are the Causes of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis? and what is the best homeopathic treatment for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis?

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system starts attacking its own thyroid cells. Normally our immune system is designed to defend against eternal bacteria, viruses, etc. However, due to some stress, Genetic causes and Environmental causes this immune system becomes defective and it considers our own body’s thyroid gland as an enemy and starts attacking it by producing antibodies against the thyroid gland. This is called autoimmune thyroiditis or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Homeopathic treatment for Hashimotos Thyroiditis

In the initial stage of the disease, it causes inflammation of the thyroid gland which causes excess production of the thyroid hormone. This expresses itself in the form of an overactive thyroid also called Hyperthyroidism. After some time due to the destruction of the thyroid gland, it becomes underactive and it stops producing enough thyroid hormone, which is expressed in the form of Hypothyroidism. This is very typical of Hashimotos thyroiditis to express first in the initial stage in the form of hyperthyroidism and then later take the form of hypothyroidism.

HomoeoCARE's Approach


Autoimmune disease means that the body's defense system is working erratically. In the case of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, The defense system thinks that the Thyroid gland is an enemy and it starts attacking the thyroid gland by producing antibodies against it. Thereby leading to its destruction. Now if you don't consider the autoimmune behavior of the defense system and just treat the effect by supplying the deficient thyroid hormone, you are not going to do any good. Here the problem is with an altered defense system and this has to be rectified.

At HomoeoCARE, for the best homeopathic treatment of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, We try to understand what was the cause of this altered defense system. This usually starts with emotional stress, which leads to some inflammation (viral fever or viral pharyngitis), and then that inflammation gets suppressed and the body's defense system which was supposed to attack the virus, gets misfired and now starts attacking the thyroid gland. Our best homeopathic doctors at homoeocare are trained to understand this process and they will strive hard to find out the emotional stress. Once we understand this, we try to address your emotional stress with the best homeopathic medicines, and then the whole process is reversed.

YES, Autoimmune diseases are reversible with homeopathy. To know more about this you can chat with us on Whatsapp. Our Best homeopathic doctors near you will try to address your queries.

HomoeoCARE's Success


A young female of 23-year-old came to Homoeocare Dadar for complaints of weight gain and tiredness for 6 months. Her periods were also irregular. When we took the detailed case we suspected her to be suffering from thyroid disease. So we asked her to do a thyroid profile. we asked her to do fT3, fT4, TSH, and anti-TPO tests. Surprisingly her TSH was normal but her Anti-TPO was positive. Now since we were clear that this is the start of the autoimmune process in her body it has to be addressed immediately. Else if we don't reverse this auto-immune process at this stage, and ignore it the autoimmune process will spread to other organs like the bones, muscles and she might suffer from diseases like SLE, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Alopecia, cardiac diseases etc...

So we asked her about her past illness and then we traced that she had suffered from chicken pox 2 years back it was severe and it was treated with Antibiotics. So here now we found out the root cause which was the inflammatory process of the chickenpox virus which got suppressed and then her immune system started attacking the thyroid cells.

Then the next process was to find out what was emotional stress. When we probed further it was found that she did not fare well in her 12th exams and the marks were not as per her expectations. She was upset and then in the next 3 months, she got chicken pox. 

Now the case was very clear.
Emotions stress (not getting good grades in exams) --> Leading to Lowering of immunity --> Suffered from chicken Pox --> Took antibiotics and suppressed it --> Autoimmune disease.

Based on this understanding, the best homeopathic medicines were selected. In the next 8 months, her anti-TPO was negative. She started to lose weight and also started to feel more energetic.

Truly the best homeopathic medicines for Hashimoto's thyroiditis will not only bring her reports to normal but will also make a positive change in her overall personality.
