Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment for Thyroid Disorders


Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland that sits in the front of the neck. It is responsible for energy, metabolism, hormone regulation, body weight and blood calcium levels. Thyroid disorders stem from either an overproduction (hyperthyroidism) or underproduction (hypothyroidism) of thyroid hormones.

From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are considered as imbalances of the Yin and Yang energy of the body. In Chinese medicine, Yin and Yang are considered the essential components of the material universe. Everything that exists has both Yin and Yang aspects. We are healthy and able to ward off disease when Yin and Yang are in balance. Illness develops when Yin and Yang become imbalanced.
