Postpartum Thyroiditis

Postpartum thyroiditis is an inflammation of the thyroid gland that arises within the first year after childbirth and affects approximately 7% of women. There are numerous symptoms that appear during both the hyperthyroid and hypothyroid phases of postpartum thyroiditis, including fatigue, goiter, mood swings, hair loss, depression, and substantially decreased milk volume in women nursing.

Postpartum Therapies

 

Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture can help expedite the postpartum recovery process by addressing common postpartum issues, including fatigue, hemorrhoids, excessive blood loss, postpartum depression, mastitis, and insufficient lactation. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy channels run throughout your body to nourish your tissues. If there is an obstruction within the energy channels, it can obstruct proper Qi flow.

Prevention is Key

It is essential to take care of your health during the postpartum period. By consuming nutritious warm food and getting adequate rest you will ensure that your body will have enough energy stores to fight off common postpartum ailments. By following the nutrition and lifestyle guidelines, you will feel more replenished, nourished, and happy during your postpartum recovery period. This will allow you to be a better mom because you are healthy and well nurtured. Remember to abide by the Traditional Chinese principles of incorporating warm and nutritious food and adequate rest for 30 days.
