Hypothyroidism also known as underactive thyroid gland, where the gland fails to produce enough thyroid hormones to meet the demands of physical body. The thyroid gland is a small approximately two inches butterfly shaped gland, situated in the anterior aspect of the throat regulates the way the body uses its energy, including the way how one’s heart beats. The normal functioning of this organ is very crucial for the metabolic homeostasis of the body. The rapid changes in the lifestyle and stressful life events are leading to the major disturbance of the normal metabolic functions of the human body, in Ayurveda the signs and symptoms of Hypothyroidism may be superficially compared to Atihraswa (dwarfism) and Atisthula (Obesity), but apart from this also, based on the other visible signs and symptomatology, the disease may be understood and treated accordingly. It is also can be considered as an Santarpanotta Vikara, since most of the Santarpanotta Vikara’s share common etio-pathogenesis. The Panchakarma treatment is known for removing the morbidity deeply from the body, and restores metabolic homeostasis. With this approach the current study was designed to observe the efficacy of Nityananda Ras, which is indicated in the Shlipada Adhikara of Bhaishajya Ratnavali, in the management of HT, and also in comparison with Nasya Karma, since the nasal administration of medicine is the best root for the elimination of the diseases of Head and neck. This research has shown the Nityanand Ras, is found effective and in the Nasya with Jeerna Karakaruka Swarasa group patients the results were encouraging in comparing with Nityanand Ras.
