one of the most chronic lifestyle problems and a common cause of weight gain (especially amongst women) is hyperthyroidism. The butterfly-shaped thyroid gland is located in the lower part of the neck and plays a crucial role in the functioning of the endocrine system. It produces the thyroid hormone which controls our metabolism. Hypothyroidism involves an underactive thyroid gland and is more common than hyperthyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid is overactive. An insufficient supply of thyroxine can damage organs and tissues in every part of the body, and can lead to life-threatening complications.

Yoga can not only help prevent but also cure thyroid problems in many ways.
