Causes of Thyroid & Do-it-yourself technique

The thyroid gland is one of the main glands of endocrine gland system and is responsible for metabolism of the body. Lot of other names are, by now, associated with this disease such as Grave’s symptoms; Hypothyroidism; Nodules; Goiter; etc and list of symptoms is endless.
This is one of the unique disease where, although some websites call it a disorder, symptoms are visible at mental and physical level. On one hand, it gives rise to anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, nervousness while on the other, it gives weight gain, dry skin, autoimmune disorder, irregular menstruation and cancer.
Thyroid hormones are associated with throat which is represented by element space, one of the 5 elements body is made of, and the chakra associated with it is: Vishudhi. It is a function of space and expression. Hence thyroid gland is affected by combination of imbalance between space and emotional suppression. Disease before getting manifested on physical level, begins to get triggered at emotional level (read Science of Disease) and that has been the base of our treatment and we have been able to reverse it successfully.
But let us examine how thyroid gland is affected due to suppression. Since it is associated more with females than with male, we will relate it to females here, though causes and remedy remain the same for male as well.

The Cause:
When we are constantly trying to please people and do not express our own self, we squeeze our space. Our expression is our truth. It could be just a small desire and truth does not have to something as exotic as who is God. Hence when we have a wish or desire or need like: new clothes; food; watching TV instead of studying and we feel constrained to express, it triggers self pity. We do that because we have a need to be nice which is more important than the “need to be self”. Self pity is one emotion which has serious repercussions. Self pity means loss of faith in life/relationship and to assume that Universe does not love you. Faith is driven by Crown chakra and is responsible for thalamus which is master gland connected to central nervous system.
However, self pity or any emotion, for that matter, doesn’t cause distress at physical level as long as emotions are handled at emotional level. In earlier time, women living in joint family had enough space to express their emotions and release them from emotional body itself. Emotions becomes distress only when we do not get enough time to experience them as emotions. The reason, modern life has thyroid problem is because, we do not have enough time and space to feel them. Hence the mind works towards getting on to next task by suppressing these emotions of self pity. This is where it triggers at physical level.
However, self pity is not key driver of this disease. There are many ways one could express self and create space. the key driver is a belief that, “No one loves me; I am not needed. See? I can’t even express myself!”
When you have a desire to go out with your partner to eat Chinese food and your partner says Italian, then there are many ways you can deal with this situation. One is to say, “Wow! that is a great idea! In fact, I was thinking of Italian too.” This is denying your own truth and expression and suffocating your space in order to be nice. This is thyroid and it is happening to our children, corporate women and housewives who constantly deny their own expression in order to be nice due to fear of being scolded or because you want to be appreciated and accepted.
You can begin to bring your thyroid under control:
If you reply saying, “Oh yes, let’s go Italian although I was hoping for Chinese. But next time, okay?”, then you’re emotions aren’t suppressed and you’ve let your partner know how you cooperating and caring you are. This is a simple step for keeping it under control. Hence, if you start observing how you suppress your space and learn to express in your way, you’ll see a huge flow of energy and various aspects will begin to heal which were initially affected by thyroid gland.
Just to let you know, you don’t require treatment from us for such cases. Our two days program is enough to help you recover and many such other complex lifestyle issues like: diabetes, asthma, migraine, blood pressure, etc.

Nothing lives inside us without being fed by our breath.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
