    Dear friends,

    Last month I was diagnosed with a cyst in the thyroid gland.The hormone level is normal.

    Thankfully,it is a benign one but,the solution is to surgically remove the left lobe of thyroid gland.

    I have been doing oil pulling for some four years. My sister who is also doing oil pulling regularly,has thyroid problems for the past one year.

    Yes,this problem is hereditary.My mother has thyroid goiter.She is taking thyroxine.

    My question is "Does oil pulling triggers thyroid disorders ?"

    If oil pulling is good for health,how come I got this cyst.I do follow healthy eating habits,with lots of fibers and water .

    What went wrong?

    I do Kapalbhathi regularly.

    Does any particular pranayama or yoga helps to solve this problem?

    kishoremommy, could not say whether oil pulling cause this, as a detailed research is necessary to prove that factor. let us wait and watch on this topic. Does oil pulling promise that one will not get any ailment or fall sick?

    Heriditary factor might have caused it.

    Kapabhati should be followed properly. Even the breathing exercises and asanas which involve in trigerring of the harmone because many a times during due course of time, people forget and do the things wrongly which gives adverse effects. So do check whether you do all yoga related exercises properly.

    I am not very sure if oil pulling has negative effects but am very sure of its positive effects as I have seen the benefit in my own family. My father in law got cured of Eosinophilia because of oil pulling. His levels have come within normal, after he started oil pulling. He was diabetic as well, little more than the normal level. He has brought it into control without any medication but with oil pulling. To be noted is he has his coffee/teas/milk with sugar

    Dear friend
    Its very good that you are following good diet and regimen. But as you have mentioned it runs in your family,so you have more tendency to catch thyroid problems then other individuals.
    Keep on following good lifestyle and if its recent diagnosis,you can try Homoeopathy treatment before switching to allopathy .
    Take care.

    As you said ,Pranayama should be learned under a right guidance.

    Oil pulling surely has its benefits.

    In my family,

    1.My grandma (70 years old)often had dental problems.But,after OP(Oil Pulling),she hasn't got one single problem for the past 4 years.

    2.My mother has severe arthritis.Even our doctor wondered how she is able to walk and manage all house hold activities.She is not suffering because of OP.

    3.I have sinus problems.But,when I am doing OP regularly ,I don't catch cold easily.There were times when,I discontinued OP for a short period of time.At that time I suffered a lot because of sinus.

    4.One of my grandma's friend(70 years old) tried OP regularly and got rid of her spectacles.

    I totally agree with you.

    OP has many advantages.That's why I do not want to stop it unless ,I come to know surely about it's side effects.

    Thank You.

    One thing I didn't do so far is exercise.Now,I have started half an hour walking per day and going to have green tea in the evening.

    We women, often ignore our health and are always worried about our family.

    This is a lesson I learnt .We should equally take good care of ourselves .

    I couldn't forget that particular week when I felt a swelling in my throat.

    First we went to an ENT specialist.He suggested ,thyroid test. Tghe result showed that the hormone levels were normal.

    Then we went to a leading Thyroid surgeon.After doing an ultrasound and FNCA(needle test),he found out the cyst.

    That three days ,waiting for the result and doctor's opinion,to make sure that the cyst was not cancerous ,was really a hell.Because ,all my family members were so worried.My mom ,sister was crying all through the day.

    Not to mention my DH.He was totally convinced that something bad was going to happen and I can't even narrate his doings.He was crying,crying and crying.We didn't eat food properly for three days.I myself ,started making arrangements for my two kids.I asked my sister to care of my two year old toddler and was planning to ask my MIL to come here and take care of my elder son and DH (of course after my death)

    All this fear is because of the person who took the needle test.He told that there is 50% chance of the cyst being cancerous.

    My God.Now,the cyst being benign,surgery is the only way to get rid of it.Otherwise ,the cyst may turn malignant.

    It is a lesson of my life time.Dear friends,please take good care of your health.
