Changed life style of current scenario has provoked several disharmonies in the biological system. Hypothyroidism is one such manifestation, which is believed to be a common health issue in India. The pathogenesis of Hypothyroidism according to Ayurveda is basically due to the abnormal functioning of Agni, which in turn affects Dhatwagni, eventually brings out pathological sequence and ultimately the disease condition develops. This condition can be managed by Ayurveda principles. A diagnosed case of Hypothyroidism presenting with puffiness of face and eyelids, weakness, lethargy, fatigue, prolonged intermenstrual period, dry and coarse skin, was managed with Triphaladya guggulu (1000 mg twice a day) and Punarnavadi kashaya (50 ml twice a day) for a period of 45 days. Thyroxine (100 mcg) that was being used by the patient since one year was withdrawn one week before starting the treatment. Serum TSH levels were reduced from 93.250 μIU/ml to 53.701 μIU/ml by the end of treatment. Triphaladya guggulu and Punarnavadi kashaya are beneficial countering signs and symptoms and bringing down the TSH levels. As the observations were drawn from a single case; can be revalidated through well designed clinical trials.
