Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (HT) is the most common auto-immune thyroid disease and the commonest cause of hypothyroidism. In conventional medicine, treatment of choice for HT is replacement of thyroid hormone. A case of HT was managed at the OPD level by following Ayurveda principles and found to be effective. A treatment protocol was designed based on the signs and symptoms and assigned in this patient. Snehapana followed by Vamana and Virechana and at the end Shamana was done with Varunadi kwatha bhavita shilajatu for a period of three months with two months follow up. The treatment protocol was found to be effective in symptomatic and biochemical profiles of the patient. Patients of HT should be able to have a choice against the lifelong hormone therapy. This can be achieved by adequate evaluation of the individual action of the therapies adapted here and replicating the same in a much larger group.
