Abstract: Autoimmune thyroiditis accounts for the most of the Hypothyroidism nowadays and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is most common. In patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis there will be increase in thyroid specific antibodies. There is only lifelong replacement therapy in conventional medicine. A case reported in the Endocrinology OPD of National Homoeopathy Research Institute in Mental Health, Kottayam with raised levels of thyroid antibodies shows reduction in antibody levels after administration of Homoeopathic medicine. This shows that individualised Homoeopathy is effective in controlling the antibody level in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. More systematic study should be carried out for the generalization of the result.
