Homeopathy Treatment for hypothyroidism

If too few hormones are produced in the thyroid gland, this is referred to as an underactive thyroid gland or hypothyroidism. The causes can be iodine deficiency, autoimmune diseases or inflammation. Hypothyroidism develops slowly and therefore only shows symptoms at a relatively late stage. Only rarely is the disease congenital or genetic.
