Citing the advantages of homoeopathy over allopathic treatment for thyroid and other hormone-related problems,Dr Bandish D Ambani from Mumbai said that over 80 percent of patients depending exclusively on homoeopathic treatment stand a chance of being completely cured in a years time.
Praising the holistic approach of the therapy,Dr Ambani,while interacting with Newsline on Thursday,said the treatment helps stimulate the bodys glands to produce hormones.
Hormonal problems like thyroid are increasing at a fast pace due to changes in lifestyle and dietary habits of people. Add to it the fact that Indians are genetically predisposed to have more thyroid problems, said Dr Ambani.
According to the expert,the problems are rising rapidly among the younger population and that is a cause of concern. Related problems like hormonal imbalance and polycystic ovaries disorder are other linked lifestyle diseases.
Stress too plays a part in furtherance of these disorders, said the doctor.
Advocating exclusive homoeopathic treatment for thyroid,Ambani said patients should ideally not mix homoeopathic treatment with allopathic medicines to achieve the desired results.
We get a lot of patients who take allopathic medicines for years before they opt for homoeopathy. Ideally,the best results can be achieved if patients have not been on allopathic medicine at all. However,if they have been taking the medicine,we do not immediately stop these but continue them in combination with homoeopathic drugs. When the effect of the allopathic medicines is gradually tapered off,we move solely to homoeopathy, added the doctor.
