Fortunately, goiter can be treated

with the help of medication as well as simple home remedies. There are several factors that influence the treatment, such as the size of the goiter, the exact causes, the symptoms that are present, as well as the patient’s age and overall health condition. In extreme cases, the only course of treatment may include surgery, but if the causes are fairly mild then you may be advised to take the required medication. However, if the goiter is not serious, then you can use simple home remedies to deal with it. Given below are some of the most common home remedies for goiter:


Perform a few neck stretches or other similar exercises that are good for the health of the thyroid gland. Many health and fitness experts aerobic exercises as well as jogging for thyroid and goiter problems

Dandelion leaves are usually very effective in bringing down the swelling caused by goiter. Warm a few dandelion leaves in a small amount of refined butter and apply them directly on to the swollen area, while they are still warm. Repeat this exercise every day, for around 2 weeks or so.

Prepare a paste from sorrel leaves and add a small amount of olive oil to it. Apply this paste on to the swelling and leave it on for a few minutes or so.

Make a paste from watercress and spread it over the neck region, where the swelling is prevalent. This should bring the swelling down considerably.

There are a few alternate healers who recommend the use of massage therapy for treating goiter. While some people have also seen relief from goiter after trying techniques like reflexology and acupuncture, there are no clinical studies to prove the effectiveness of such techniques.


Diet for Goitre


In order to speed up the treatment of goiter, it is best for you to follow the diet recommended by your health care provider, who may advise you to go on a juice fast for around 3 or 4 days. During this time you can have any homemade fruit and vegetable juice, which is devoid of too much sugar or preservatives. After the 4th day you can resume your normal diet, but it is best to eat light foods, till the problem is cured. However, there are some food items that are recommended for treating goiter faster, such as:

  • Oats, seafood, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, garlic, whole rice, strawberries, onions, guavas, eggs (yolk) and citric fruits, as they are high in iron
  • Pineapples or pineapple juice
  • Bananas, as they help stimulate the thyroid
  • Vitamin A rich foods, like sweet potatoes, cayenne, paprika, chili powder, red pepper, liver pate, leafy greens, carrots, dried herbs, butternut squash, cantaloupe, dried apricot, lettuce, papayas, peaches, mangoes, tomatoes, green peas and milk
  • Foods that are high in Vitamin B like meat, dairy products, soy bean, cereals, whole grains, beans, pulses, tuna, salmon, herring, nuts, seeds, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, corn, okra, parsnips, grapes, raspberries, watermelons, guavas, dates, grapefruit and avocadoes to name a few.

In order to follow a proper diet for goiter, you not only need to include the right foods, but also may need to change your eating habits a bit. For starters, instead of eating 3 square meals a day, it is better to have 5 or 6 smaller meals, spaced at frequent intervals. At no time should you skip a meal, especially breakfast, which is not only the most important meal of the day, but also should be the most substantial.

Before you make any changes to your existing diet, it is important to consult a doctor and get his/her approval, especially if you are elderly or are suffering from a preexisting medical condition.
