Dear Anoopama,

Goiter is the result of repetitive and acute stress in life, striving too hard, having to put a lot of effort all the time and rushing to get everything done. It is the result of the body constantly demanding more energy. Once your thyroid started weakening, your body started creating more thyroid tissue to make "more thyroid" to keep up with the demand.

Until you relax your mind and reduce the demand for energy, your body will not be interested in letting go of the goitre.
You need a combination between homeopathic remedies to help restore balance and to reduce the goitre, along with learning ways to slow down your life or emotions a bit, so your body and mind can relax.

Thyroidinum is but one remedy and it is usually helpful, in the right potency. This has to be established by an experienced homeopath and also monitored, as it  can change as your symptoms change.

There are many remedies to help with thryoid, goitre, mood swings and tiredness, but all of this is the EFFECT of a deeper problem and not the actual problem. So all solutions to control the thyroid gland will just help for a while and will just mask the real issue. The reality is that something in your life has to change in order for your body to want to get rid of the goitre.
And if it is not your actual life demands causing so much stress and fatigue, then perhaps it is your mental state. People who are prone to stress, anxiety, have high demands on themselves and others, tend to have problems with fatigue, mood swings and exhaustion.

Another element is also heredity. Sometimes we inherit by birth a tendency to be delicate, high strung and easily stressed out. In that case, there are homeopathic remedies to help you with this as well, but they have to be selected and administered carefully and at the right time to work well.

meanwhile, there are many herbs, exercises and other measures you can take to soothe your symptoms and support your thyroid and emotional state until a full cure is accomplished.

This is a not a simple situation and there is no one remedy or simple cure, but a treatment process is required and the help of an experienced homeopath or healer to get you through to success!

Good luck,

I can answer questions about homeopathy, sequential treatment and heilkunst - who can be treated, what the treatment is for different ailments. German New Medicine can help you understand your symptoms as they relate to a particular emotional shock and can show you if you are still ill or already healing.


My experience in holistic medicine began with my own preference for a natural and non-medicinal lifestyle. This lead me to my introduction to homeopathy when I realized there were safe and exceptionally effective medciines i could give to my children instead of pills. The more I learned about homeopathy, the more it made sense, so I took the courses, worked at a clinic and started working with patients soon after. I have been practising for 8 years now and every day I continue to learn from my clients and from the many interesting courses I take to complement what I already do. Today I incorporate knowledge from German New Medicine, Orgonomy, Anthroposophy and many other intersting fields, including informational and vibrational medicine when I work with clients. And the additional expertise helps me see a more complex picture of what is needed to help the person.
