A 34-year old female with severe hypothroidism was first given Thyroxin for 60 days and was relieved of all signs or symptoms. Then she was given foot reflexology for 30 days, continued with self-reflexology without any incidents for 6 months.
Foot reflexology was found to be helpful for patients with hypothroidism and might be a new practical therapy in combination with Thyroxin due to its simplicity, low cost, and good results.
