Thyroid disease in three parts and seven parts of the treatment, conditioning is very important

As the pace of life increases, so does the pressure on people, and our thyroid gland is prone to problems when under constant stress.

Thyroid disease is mainly caused by an overproduction or underproduction of thyroid hormones, resulting in an increase or decrease in thyroid function and the formation of thyroid disease. Thyroid disorders can be very harmful to the human body, and chronic diseases must be treated in three ways and nurtured in seven. We all know that thyroid disorders should be treated actively, but we pay little attention to our own management, which is why our thyroid disorders do not heal.

The most effective way to manage your thyroid disease is to make sure that you have the right kind of care.

internal emotional trauma

According to Chinese medicine, the causes of thyroid disorders can be summed up as the seven emotions of internal injuries, congenital deficiencies, and acquired disorders. The seven emotions are joy, anger, worry, thought, grief, fear and panic. For example, long-term depression, or sudden exposure to malignant stimuli, leads to stagnation of Liver-Qi, which causes fluids to condense into phlegm, blocking the formation of gall swellings in front of the neck. Once depressed for a long time, it inevitably leads to Liver-Qi stagnation, emotional irritability and irritability.

Many patients with thyroid disease in modern life are often angry and jealous of the long-term stimulation of the emotional state caused by the emotional upset, as the so-called “all diseases of qi on the birth” in Chinese medicine.

Therefore, we must pay attention to regulate our emotions in time in ordinary life, to maintain a good mood, state is very important.

Regulate the spleen and stomach

Many thyroid patients suffer from poor diet, resulting in a deficient cold spleen and stomach, and TCM believes that mental and emotional abnormalities, eye disorders, and poor qi and blood flow are mostly related to the liver. Patients with hyperthyroidism have a strong liver fire, and more than 70% of their illnesses have emotional triggers and are impatient and irritable. The depressed mood in hypothyroidism stems from Liver-Qi stagnation. Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism have yin and yang deficiencies related to the spleen and kidneys.

Most patients with hyperthyroidism belong to the yin deficiency and qi depression of Chinese medicine, while hypothyroidism is more common in the qi deficiency and yang deficiency of the body. Usually, they tend to be depressed or angry and anxious. These people are resistant to cold and heat, afraid of summer, often have hot hands and feet, like to eat cold food, and have a thin body shape. So hyperthyroidism patients should avoid some cold things and eat a mild diet.

Hypothyroidism patients are afraid of cold, weakness and fatness, while they belong to the Yang deficiency of Chinese medicine. Such people do not tolerate fatigue. Heat intolerant, afraid of cold, afraid of air conditioning, our hypothyroid patients should pay attention to the management of qi deficiency or start from the root.

Dietary Adjustment

Patients with hyperthyroidism can eat less, we can eat vitamin-rich fresh vegetables, fruits and nutritious lean meat, chicken, duck, turtle, freshwater fish, mushrooms, silver fungus, lilies, mulberries and other foods.

You can also eat peanuts and their products, perilla, white mustard and cabbage seeds, which have the effect of inhibiting thyroid hormone synthesis.

Patients with hyperthyroidism should not eat foods that contain iodine such as seafood, chili peppers, ginger, mung beans, sea creatures, mutton, strong tea, coffee and other hot and humid foods.

In Chinese medicine, hypothyroidism is mostly a yang deficiency, and it is appropriate to eat products that tonify the kidneys and warm the yang, such as animal kidneys, mutton, sparrow meat, dog meat, sparrow eggs, fish swim bladders, sea cucumbers, shrimp, gorgonzola, leeks, yam, walnut meat, and wolfberry seeds.

It is important to understand that hypothyroidism patients with insufficient thyroid hormone, eat more seafood can both promote the synthesis of thyroid hormone, such as oysters, seaweed, sea cucumbers, shrimp, seaweed and so on.

You should not eat: cold, cold food, such as watermelon, cold drinks, bitter melon, chrysanthemum tea and so on should be eaten sparingly.

Once again, I would like to remind thyroid patients that while treatment is important, both the symptoms and the root cause should be treated scientifically and effectively in order to fundamentally improve our thyroid disease condition and restore our health as soon as possible.
