One of the common ailments that can happen to anyone is thyroid. The thyroid is a small gland located in the front of your neck. It releases hormones that help your body in regulating and using energy. The thyroid is divided into two types- hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. When your body is unable to produce enough thyroid hormones, it leads to hypothyroidism. When your body produces an excess amount of thyroid hormones, that's known as hyperthyroidism. 

 

Hypothyroidism is more common and there are various symptoms of hypothyroidism. Constipation, fatigue, high blood pressure, weight gain, impaired memory, muscle aches, puffy eyes and premature greying of hair are the symptoms of hypothyroidism. While there are medications that one needs to take daily, but there are some home remedies that can help in restoring the functioning of your thyroid gland.
