Mind-Body medicine has been used throughout the ages, and now with modern society embracing these age-old traditions, such as meditation, it’s no wonder that people are reaching out to ancient practices for help with their thyroid problems.

The throat is associated with communication and that the inability to speak up for oneself and not speaking your truth, can contribute to thyroid disease.

Mind-Body medicine is said to use the power of thoughts and emotions to control physical health. Simply channeling the mind to influence the body can be one of the greatest forces for a healthy body.

Meditation can be a key ingredient, especially when coupled with other Mind-Body therapies and practices, to help maintain a balance in the body. This is important when fighting an internal battle such as thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune disease. By entwining this approach to your overall health, sometimes a more all-around support system is developed, allowing symptoms to be eased.

Other ingredients for a healthy Mind-Body lifestyle can include:

  • Healthy Diet
  • Exercise
  • Yoga
  • Massage
