Question: hi
recently I noticed a small lump on the right side of my neck. in a scan, a solitary nodule was found in thyroid gland. fnac was also done which ruled out any malignancies in the nodule. I was also diagnosed with high cholesterol level. the scanning report of my neck band abdomen area attached here. result of fnac and lipid profile are also attached.

I would like to know about treatments for thyroid nodule and high cholesterol in Ayurveda.

Brief Answer:
not recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hai,
kanchanara gugulu is not normally prescribed during breast feeding .

I will suggest certain allowed medication

haritaki choornam: 2g with buttermilk twice a day.

garlic juice with little amount of honey once in a day.make 4 to 5pulp of garlic grind it and mix with honey.
XXXXXXX kasayam (horsegram) 30ml to 50 ml once in a day.

Aloe vera sometimes cause cold to baby while breast feeding. So avoid it.


follow it with the earlier mentioned diet and lifestyle.

this will be safe during breast feeding.
