How To Deflate A Thyroidectomy Goiter

Goiter is one of the diseases that affect the thyroid gland resulting in the swelling of the gland. This condition is caused mainly due to the shortage of iodine in our body. The size of the bulges may be different in different patients.

 Goiter can be cured completely by following some of the home remedies mentioned below which have proven to be very effective in treating the disease.

 1.Perform neck stretches. 

 Performing neck stretches can be helpful in expanding the neck muscles near the thyroid gland. Doing exercises like aerobics and jogging can be helpful in curing the goiter problem. Having a cool swim once in every day can be considered helpful in treating goiter.

 2.Sorrel leaves: they are rich in minerals such as iodine and thus help to treat and prevent goiter.

 Make a paste of a handful of sorrel leaves.

  Mix two tablespoons of olive oil into the paste.

  Lie down and apply this paste on the swollen neck area.

 Leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

 Follow this remedy once a day until the swelling is gone.

 3.Green tea: 

 Many herbalists also recommend drinking green tea on a daily basis to cure goiter. Green tea is full of antioxidants and contains a high amount of natural fluoride, which is designed to support the functioning of the thyroid.

 Put a teaspoon of green tea leaves in a cup and pour hot water over it.

 Cover and let steep for five minutes.

  Filter, add a little honey and mix well.

 Drink this green tea at least three times a day.

 4.Garlic can also be used to treat goiter. 

 It stimulates the production of glutathione in the body, which is essential for healthy thyroid function. Also, it can help reduce swelling in the neck.

 Chew three to four cloves of raw garlic per day in the morning.

 You can also add garlic to your dishes.

 If you don't like the taste of garlic, you can take garlic supplements. Consult your doctor for the proper dosage.
