Goitre traitement naturel 1


Goiter means the enlargement of the thyroid gland, which is located in your neck. However, the presence of a goiter does not mean that the thyroid is not working properly.

A goiter can occur in a gland that produces too many hormones (hyperthyroidism) or too few hormones (hypothyroidism). Usually, a goiter gives an indication that there is something abnormal causing the thyroid gland to grow abnormally.

Iodine deficiency is the main cause of goiter. Other possible causes are Graves' disease, Hashimoto's disease, inflammation of the thyroid, nodules, thyroid cancer, pregnancy, and side effects.

Anyone can develop a goiter, but people who have a family history of thyroid disease are at greater risk. Women over 40 or who are going through menopause are also more prone to developing goiter. Radiation exposure can also trigger this problem.

Not all goiter causes symptoms. However, when symptoms do occur, they often include noticeable swelling in the neck, difficulty swallowing or breathing, coughing, hoarseness, and a feeling of tightness in the throat.

Many goiters go away with treatment, which varies depending on the size and condition of the goiter, as well as the symptoms associated with it. The experts at the Phytotherapy Center (Mes Plantes) have a natural treatment based on medicinal plants to permanently cure Goiter. Click on the image below to discover this natural treatment
