Ms. Xi’an, Shaanxi Consulting: When I was young, my parents didn’t have time to take care of me. May be the cause of iodine deficiency, I remember that many children were suffering from thyroid enlargement. Adults go far away and buy kelp back to cook soup. Excuse me, can seaweed soup really cure thyroid enlargement?
Li Liukun, an associate professor at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, answers: The thyroid enlargement caused by iodine deficiency in the body is called simple goiter, and is generally not accompanied by thyroid dysfunction. In this case, you can try kelp to boil water.
Kelp, seaweed, kelp and so on have the effect of clearing away heat and eliminating phlegm, softening and dispersing, and are often used to treat diseases such as goiter and lymphatic tuberculosis. For patients with simple goiter, a therapeutic side is recommended: 15 grams of kelp, 15 grams of seaweed, 15 grams of kelp, 6 grams of dried tangerine peel, 10 grams of fragrant scent, 10 grams of turmeric, and 10 grams of Prunella vulgaris. Use 1000 ml of water, fry 300 ml, twice in the morning and evening, take it on an empty stomach, one dose a day. Of course, if you can’t buy these Chinese herbal medicines, simply use kelp to boil water and eat kelp, which can also play a certain mitigating effect. This remedy can be used as adjunctive therapy for therapeutic patients. If the condition is serious, it is recommended to go to a regular hospital for treatment.
