Hi,

I'm just looking for some clarifications for a regimen that suited to do of people who have thyroid disorders.

In recent years, Thyroid disorder has become increasingly common. The hormones secreted by the thyroid gland, affect a person’s growth, metabolism, and even body temperature. When unchecked, thyroid disorder can impact physical and mental health. Research has shown a direct relationship between elevated stress levels and the hormonal imbalance caused due to these disorders. As such, an effective corrective measure is to use Yoga for Thyroid. There are several Yoga poses for Thyroid, but some are quite advanced and should be attempted with caution.

Are Sun Salutation and Sarvangasana are the only yoga regimen for thyroid disorders? Thanks in advance.

Hi TaiPi,

As you probably know, the level of functioning of the thyroid goes down with age. Exposure to radiations and toxins accelerates this process. Thyroid hormone regulates the rate of energy in the body, and it is easy to see its effects from the health of the skin to the sharpness of mind.

Besides Sarvangasana, other poses that stimulate primary the thyroid and vishuddha chakra are Ardha Matsyendrasana, Marichyasana, Matsyasana, and Karnapidasana. All variations of these poses stimulate the thyroid. Often we tend to find challenging the poses related to a chakra not fully open or balanced. Regular practice of these poses will help, and in time the poses become much easier. Jalandhara Bandha, both static and dynamic, stimulates and balances vishuddha chakra. After each pose, stop for a couple of moments and notice the effect. This will amplify the effect (prathyahara).

Pranayama can be effectively used to stimulate vishuddha chakra and the thyroid. Practice Surya Namaskara with ujjayi breath, and make sure you take at least ten three-part yogic breaths each day.

Vishuddha chakra, the wheel of energy expressed through the thyroid gland, is called “pure joy” and is connected to self-expression, speech, perception of time and space, transcendence, perception of beauty, and more. Things that support these activities will support also the function of the thyroid. You could give it a try by playing music in your car and singing aloud – do this for a week or two and notice how you feel. Keep a journal and express your thoughts and opinions. When you talk with others, rather than keeping quiet, find ways to say what you think.

Yoga has a holistic view on health, and each action plays a role. However, when health issues become serious or chronic, consulting a doctor is the proper thing to do.

There have been some recent reports that vegan diet reverses hypothyroidism, but I have not seen a conclusive scientific study of this.

And, of course, regular meditation is a great way to support our physical and mental health.

The guru is in you.
