A deeper understanding of what is happening to your body and the best approach to fixing it. Most thyroid patients are scared of the same thing - I will never be completely treated. What if someone told you that isn’t true?
If you don’t trust us, you can always ask the thousands of patients who have directly benefitted and even reversed their hypothyroidism with us.
Hypothyroidism doctors often miss out on telling you one crucial part of treatment - it goes much beyond medication. At Jeevam Health, we do things a little differently. And we get real results.
In short, your thyroid gland is not producing enough hormones. Here’s what happens.
The thyroid gland is unable to produce hormones like T3 and T4 → the brain tries to stimulate the gland by releasing TSH → The gland may be damaged due to inflammation (such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis) and is unable to respond → The body starts showing symptoms of high TSH and low T3 and T4 levels.
As the thyroid hormones control metabolism and cell growth, most symptoms are related to these.
Hyperthyroidism can be cured. Hyperthyroidism medication is safe and effective. Depending on your age, type of disease, and severity, your doctor may opt for a medical, surgical, or combination management.
To understand hyperthyroidism treatment, let’s take an example:
The leak means your bathroom floor is always wet. So you simply put a bucket to collect the water and mop up the floor. This is what beta blockers do. They control symptoms of high thyroid levels without actually changing disease process.
You seal the leak with a cloth or sealant or shut off the main supply so the water can’t get out. This is what antithyroid medication does. It blocks the production and release of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland.
You replace the tap. This is a more longterm solution, like the one offered by functional medicine. While the other measures are necessary for initial control, lifestyle changes are the key to better health permanently.

Infertility is often the result of the inability to release the egg in a timely manner. However, the myth that hypothyroidism cannot be treated is not true. With the judicious use of hypothyroidism medication and lifestyle changes, women have successful pregnancies.
Men often find it uncomfortable to discuss bedroom troubles. However, it’s very important to overcome your reservations because hypothyroidism doctors can help you.
Erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory disorders are common with hypothyroidism. They can even lead to depression. Men may also face a reduced sperm count or altered sperm morphology. All of this becomes a bigger problem especially if you’re planning a pregnancy.
The good news is - there is a solution! And it doesn’t require any expensive medicines or machines.
Hypothyroidism doctors prescribe a synthetic form of the thyroid hormone that directly supplements what your body is unable to produce.
Your body is in a state of deficiency + your body is unable to produce the required hormones → directly supplying the hormones to your body externally is the easiest treatment. But what happens when you don’t control the disease process?
Your thyroid gland continues to get damaged → Thyroid function worsens as your body produces less and less hormones → You have to take a higher dose of medication to match your needs. That’s where we come in.
