Hyperthyroidism is the condition that occurs due to excessive production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Signs and symptoms vary between people and may include irritability, muscle weakness, sleeping problems, a fast heartbeat, heat intolerance, diarrhoea, enlargement of the thyroid, hand tremor, and weight loss particularly Graves disease which accounts for approx 50% to 80% of hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is under the scope of “Ying Bing瘿病” mainly attributed to emotional stress and improper diet resulting in qi stagnation, phlegm congelation and blood stasis bind manifested as a nodule in the neck. Early onset is generally an excess pattern due to the liver and heart yin deficiency with hyperactive yang and overtime the disorder develops from excess to deficiency characterized by yin and qi deficiency.
Chinese medicine diagnosis can be based on the following: (1) Aversion to heat and sweating; heart palpitations, insatiable hunger and thin; anxiety and easily angry; protruding eyes (proptosis) and other related-hyperthyroidism symptoms. (2) Laboratory test: Serum thyroid hormone was measured by an increase in FT4 and a decrease in TSH. (3) MRI and radionuclide examination are helpful for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of this disease.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is not able to produce enough thyroid hormone. Since the main purpose of thyroid hormone is to “run the body’s metabolism,” it is understandable that people with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism.
TCM Understanding of Hypothyroidism
In Chinese medicine, hypothyroidism is under the scope of Lao Ying 劳瘿, Xu Lao 虚劳 or deficiency detriment and Ying Bing 瘿病. The pathogenesis of hypothyroidism is yang qi deficiency thus the root cause is attributed to spleen and kidney yang deficiency while the pathology of qi stagnation, phlegm turbidity, and blood stasis is the product of yang deficiency. Thus, this is a complex syndrome of tip excess with root deficiency..For patients suffering from hypothyroidism; the root cause is yang deficiency with residual heat not fully resolved characterized by qi and yin deficiency. Based on the theory that yin and yang are rooted with each other; therefore treatment is to incorporate augmenting qi, nourish yin and clear heat apart from tonifying the yang.
Professor Ni Qing will share with you his road-tested strategies in the contemporary management of Hyperthyroidism with an integrated Western and Chinese approach: such as: (1) Stabilizing the thyroid function and shorten the treatment; (2) Reduce the dosage of Western drugs and prevent relapse; (3) Application of Chinese medicine to reduce the adverse side effects of Western medicinals.

How to use single or paired herbs to fast tract some key chemical tests.
What you will learn from this webinar:
Professor Ni Qing will share with you his contemporary approach in the management of hypothyroidism and nominate many targeted single herbs to be incorporated into the core formula to improve symptoms and fast track chemical tests outcome.
We would like to emphasize that the contemporary approach in the management of many modern diseases is not a case of abandoning the age-old tradition of pattern identification. It is a strategy to incorporate many proven paired or single herbs to the traditional formulas so that the ensuing chemical outcome reflects substantial improvements of many key lab results.
