If natural is the way, then these asanas willhelp you function well
There are endless health-related problems that have surrounded people. While stress is slowly taking over the back problems, the other that is affecting people is thyroid. So while yoga is helpful in fighting problems of weight gain and stressed back, it has many benefits for people suffering from thyroid.
The thyroid is a small gland in the throat that secretes hormones and is responsible for the body’s metabolism, temperature, and growth. It is when the thyroid gland can’t produce enough thyroid hormones that it is called Underactive Thyroid. This further leads to fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin, and weight gain. While there is a medication that one is put on to keep the thyroid in check, there are a few yoga asanas that will exert pressure on the thyroid gland, help improve blood circulation, and squeezes the stagnant secretion.
For support use a folded towel or blanket under your shoulders. Now slowly bring your shoulders to the edge of the blanket and let your headrest on the mat.

All this while inhaling and then slowly while exhaling bring your legs over your head.
