    • Hi Arya,
      Thyroid problem is curable so don’t worry. Practice kapalbhati pranayama for 15-30 minutes if you are suffering from severe thyroid problem. Gomutra (Cow Urine) is the natural remedy on thyroid so you can drink 1-2 spoon daily in the morning on an empty stomach. Sarvangasana and halasana are the beneficial to cure thyroid problem.

      Avoid cold drinks, hot spicy fried food. Go for walking or jogging in the morning. If you are fat then drink warm honey
      lemon water in the morning on an empty stomach. Regular practice of Kapalbhati pranayama is very important for good results.

      If you are suffering from heart, spine problem or high blood pressure then avoid sarvangasana and halasana.
      High blood pressure patient should practice kapalbhati pranayama slowly, not fast. Means 3 exhalation in 6 seconds.
