Introduction: Hypothyroidism is one of the most common thyroid disorders in India, its incidence increasing day by day. The current issue was chosen for research and its treatment by using Ayurvedic principles due to the vast range of the disease and its high incidence in society. The aim of the present study is to compare the efficacy of Varuna Kwatha and Kanchnara Triphala Kwatha in the management of Dhatvagnimandhya (Hypothyroidism). Methods: This was a randomized, interventional type and comparative study, in which 30 confirmed hypothyroidism patients with elevated serum thyroid-stimulating hormone >.5 μIU/ml were selected and treated with Varuna Kwatha and Kanchnara Triphala Kwatha for 30 days. To measure the unbiased impact of treatments, patients were instructed to stop using any hypothyroidism medications they were consuming. Results: Both the groups showed statistically highly significant (P < 0.001) improvement in tiredness, weakness, dyspnea, and dry coarse skin, while in a hoarse voice, hypomenorrhea, menorrhagia, oligomenorrhea, and cold intolerance, the groups showed the insignificant result. In objective parameters, both groups showed highly significant results (P < 0.001) in decreasing weight and body mass index. Both the groups showed insignificant result in T3, T4 parameters. Group A showed a 5.08% decrease in TSH, but statistically, it was insignificant, while Group B showed a significant result (P = 0.0234) with 30.54% relief. Conclusion: Kanchnara Triphala Kwatha showed better results than Varuna Kwatha.
