It is very common in my city for people have a simple non cancerous nodule on their thyroid and they have their thyroid removed. After the surgery they are required to take hypothyroid medication for the rest of their life.

However, homeopathic medicines can help with the symptoms of thyroid enlargement. I have a few clients who have asked their doctor's to keep an eye on their thyroid whilst they take homeopathic treatment and the results have been quite good. Some homeopathic remedies are indicated for certain symptoms of the thyroid. For example, the following remedies are indicated in the symptoms of:

  • Lapis Albus: soft nodules
  • Bromium: hard nodules
  • Iodum: generalized enlarged thyroid
  • Cistus: cystic swellings
  • Thuja: abnormal growths

Keep in mind homeopathy is based on more than one particular symptoms but someone's whole symptom picture, not a disease name.

It is just like kids who get sick from a birthday sleepover, who have overindulged in goodies and come home ill.
