Vasthi or Enema
Designed to clean the lower alimentary canal and most effective in Ayurvedic treatment bringing cleansing of subtle channels or srothas spread all over the body. This is very effective in removing the coating of fire principle caused by Kapha dosha and Medas or Fat dhathu. Special ingredients may be added to it making it a lekhana vasthi which can cause scraping of Kapha and medas or fat dhathu. Very effective for whole body detox - We highly recommend it for Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, Hypertension, Constipation, and Weight Loss cases.
Performing Nasya is worth doing before pranayama. Nasya with Vacha (Acorus calamus) or other herbs specified for thyroid stimulation is very useful.
Yoga and Meditation
As with all disease, the importance of the effect of stress on the body cannot be denied and meditation can be very effective.
Yoga stimulates and normalizes the function of the thyroid, pituitary, pineal and adrenal glands. It limbers and stretches the neck, as well as strengthens and tones the nervous system. The asanas specific for thyroid health are Sarvangasna which puts considerable pressure on the thyroid, improving circulation and squeezing out stagnant secretions, Matsyasana, Halasana, Surya Namaskar, Naukasana, Uttanapadasana, Yashtikasana, Pavanmuktasana, Suptavajrasana and all forward and backward bending asanas. These should be taught by a qualified doctor.
The deficient flow of energy through the nadis manifests as hypoactivity of mind, fatigue and dullness of senses. According to Ayurvedic concepts, there are 72000 nadis in the living body. Of these, Pingala is with its energy of the sun, and Saraswati nadi branching out from the throat chakra supplying prana to the mouth and throat area are of importance to the thyroid. Pranayama techniques that focus on these nadis are useful to the thyroid gland.
