Gastritis, is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the stomach, is not a single disease. Rather, gastritis is a condition that has many causes. Common to all people with gastritis is pain or discomfort in the upper part of the belly (abdomen), sometimes called dyspepsia. This may be caused due to various reasons and the condition has become rampant with today's stressful and modernized. Gastritis can be a brief and sudden illness (acute gastritis), a longer-lasting condition (chronic gastritis).

Causes:
Any factor that injures the wall (protective lining) of stomach provokes the symptoms of gastritis. Common causes of Gastritis include:

  • Infection: Most commonly Bacterial (Helicobacter Pylori) and occasionally due to Fungal, parasitic or viral infection
  • Drugs: NSAIDs, Steroids, etc
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Backflow of bile into the stomach (Bile reflux)
  • Excess of spicy foods
  • Radiation

The medical dictum is: Gastritis is the result of Hurry, Worry, Curry.

symptoms:

In people who have gastritis symptoms, pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen is the most common.

  • The pain is usually in the upper central portion of the abdomen (the "pit" of the stomach).
  • Gastritis pain occurs in the left upper portion of the abdomen and in the back. The pain seems to "go right straight through" a person as it travels from the belly to the back.
  • People often use the terms burning, aching, gnawing, or sore to describe the pain. Usually, a vague sense of discomfort is present, but the pain may be sharp, stabbing, or cutting

Other symptoms of gastritis include the following:

  • Belching: Belching usually either does not relieve the pain or relieves it only briefly.
  • Nausea and vomiting: The vomit may be clear, green or yellow, blood-streaked, or completely bloody, depending on the severity of the stomach inflammation.
  • Bloating
  • Feeling of fullness or burning in the upper pa.

Gout is a form of arthritis which is caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints. In this condition, due to a metabolic dysfunction, there is deposition of uric acid in and around the joints causing severe painfulness, swelling and restricted mobility of the affected joint.

Causes:

The underlying cause of gout is a disturbance in Purine metabolism of the body. Purine is a substance found plenty in the living cells as well as in many food articles. Uric acid is a body waste product, which is produced in the body after the breakdown of Purine. Under excretion of uric acid through the kidneys and large intestines or excess formation of uric acid due to certain factors (such as alcohol, lack of physical activity, crash diet, meat, etc.) leads to accumulation of excess uric acid in the blood, eventually leading to Gout. The exact cause for the under excretion remains unknown in many cases, and it is believed to be more genetically determined.
Attacks of gouty arthritis can be precipitated when there is a sudden change in uric acid levels.

  • Overindulgence of alcohol and red meats

  • Trauma

  • Starvation and dehydration 

  • IV contrast dyes

  • Chemotherapy

  • Medications

  • Diuretics and some other hypertensive medications

  • Nicotinic acid

  • Cyclosporin A

  • Allopurinol and probenecid

  • Others

Symptoms:

Gout is an intensely painful condition, which mostly affects only one joint (monoarthritis) at a time, most commonly the big toe. However, Gout may also affect elbows, knees, ankles, wrists or small joints of the hands and feet. The classic history in a patient suffering from Gout is of excruciating and sudden pain, swelling, redness, warmth and stiffness of the joint. Low-grade fever may also be present. The skin overlying the joint can also be swollen, tender and sore if it is touched even lightly. Patients with longstanding hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid in blood) can have uric acid crystal deposits called tophi in other tissues as well, e.g. the helix of the ear.

Kidney stones are more frequent in patients with gout. Uric acid crystals can form outside joints. Collections of these crystals, known as tophi, can be found in the earlobe, elbow, and Achilles tendon (back of the ankle). Typically, these tophi are not painful but can be a valuable clue for the diagnosis.

Peptic Ulcer

Get Latest Price

Ulcerations (sores) in the lining of upper part of the digestive tract are known as Peptic Ulcers. The ulcers may exist in the lower part of food pipe (oesophagus), in the stomach or in the initial part of the intestine (duodenum). About 10% of all adults are affected with Peptic ulcers at some time in their life. The incidence of Peptic ulcers is more common in males as compared to females.

Causes:

The underlying process that results in Peptic ulcer formation is excess of acid production in the stomach and damage to the protective barrier inside the stomach. Certain things that can trigger excess acid production or can cause damage to the protective lining of the stomach are:

  • Emotional stress

  • Foods (spices, pungent foods, etc)

  • Overuse of certain drugs, especially NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)

  • Infections (H-Pylori)

  • Hereditary

  • Smoking

Types of Peptic Ulcers:

Peptic ulcers usually run a chronic course and complaints tend to be episodic in nature; the patient is usually free from the symptoms in between these episodes. Some of the common symptoms of Peptic ulcers are:

  • Pain in the epigastrium (upper part of abdomen)

  • Hunger pain- worsening of pain when the stomach is empty

  • Night pain- wakes the patient from sleep

  • Heartburn

  • Water brash

  • Loss of appetite (anorexia)

  • Nausea

  • Haematemesis (vomiting of blood)

  • Dark or black stools

The pain is usually relieved by taking some food, milk, antacids, by belching or vomiting.

Diagnosis:

Diagnosis of Peptic ulcers is confirmed by:

  • Endoscopy to evaluate ulcers

  • Biopsy may be required

  • Barium meal (double contrast)

  • Stool examination

  • Complete blood count

Complications:

  • Hemorrhage

  • Perforation of ulcer

  • Gastric outlet obstruction (obstruction in terminal part of stomach)

Homeopathic treatment of Peptic Ulcers:

Peptic ulcer disease is a constitutional disease that finds its local expression at the level of the digestive system. Being a constitutional disorder, it calls for constitutional approach towards treatment. Homoeopathic approach towards the management of Peptic ulcer disease involves the evaluation of the complaint in details while taking into account individual factors such as one’s personal and family history while planning a long-term treatment. Since the treatment targets the root cause, Homeopathy offers long-term cure instead of temporary relief. It treats at a deeper level of immunity and enhances the healing capacity of the body. Homeopathy can also help to prevent complications of Peptic ulcers.

Self-Care at Home

Home care for peptic ulcers often centers on neutralizing the stomach acid.

  • Don't smoke, and avoid coffee and alcohol. These habits increase gastric acid production and weaken the mucosal barrier of the GI tract, thus promoting ulcer formation and slowing ulcer healing.

  • Don't take or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications.

No particular diet is helpful for people with peptic ulcers.

  • At one time, medical professionals recommended a bland diet and avoidance of spicy or greasy foods.

  • We now know that diet has little effect on ulcers. In some people, however, certain foods seem to aggravate symptoms.

  • A bland diet is no longer considered necessary as a blanket recommendation.

  • Avoid eating any foods that aggravate your symptoms.

Tonsils

Get Latest Price

Tonsillitis is simply inflammation of the tonsils. (Tonsils/itis, where itis means inflammation) 

Causes : 

Major cause is the infection. Certain bacteria (Most common being streptococcal group), viruses, and allergens are known to produce Tonsillitis. Tonsillitis may also occur as a result of certain allergy to food-preservatives, artificial colors, etc. 

The commonest cause of tonsillitis is infection of the tonsils by micro-organisms. Certain bacteria (most common being the streptococcal group of bacteria), viruses, and allergens are known to produce tonsillitis. Allergens are usually in the form of certain food articles. Common food articles that can trigger tonsillitis are artificially colored sweets, sour fruits, bananas, preservatives added to certain drinks, cold food or drinks, ice-creams, etc. Environmental factors that may trigger an attack of tonsillitis are exposure to excessive cold weather, damp climate or change of weather. It must be borne in mind that bacteria and viruses tend to flourish in crowded areas and hence patients who are prone to tonsillitis can easily catch the infection in schools, parks, theatres, etc. All these factors contribute to lowering the immunity of the body and thus the tonsils fall prey to infection by the micro-organisms.

Another causative factor that can be of importance in the diagnosis of recurrent tonsillitis or chronic tonsillitis is genetic tendency. Recurrent tonsillitis is frequent in patients whose parents have also suffered from the same condition during childhood or adolescence.
Thus it is not just one, but multiple factors that combine together to lower the immunity of the body and this in turn causes recurrent and chronic tonsillitis in patients.

Why does one get Tonsillitis?

Tonsils may be considered as two guards standing at the entrance (throat) and protecting the human system against a wide range of intruders such as bacteria, virus, allergens and the like. Tonsils are natural protectors and vital organs of self-defense mechanism of the body. They are like the soldiers fighting on the border who get injured (inflamed) protecting the country. 

When the internal immune system is low or weak, one tends to get infections. Tonsils work towards protecting us against the infections. Inflamed tonsils or recurrent tonsillitis is the result of low immunity and not the cause of it. The treatment should be targeted towards enhancing the immunity and not by removing the tonsils!

Symptoms: 
  1. Sore throat: Pain in the throat is the most common presentation. However, young babies may not present with the pain but may present with an inability to eat.

  2. Dysphasia: That is difficult swallowing. This may either be due to pain or due to huge increase in the size of the tonsils due to frequent inflammation.

  3. Fever: Acute infection of the tonsils may present with moderate to high rise in body temperature. In case of septic foci on the tonsils, there may be fever with chills.

Hypothyroidism

Get Latest Price

Diminished secretion of thyroid hormones in the body is called as hypothyroidism (hypo=less). Thyroid is small gland situated in the midline and base of the neck. The gland produces thyroid hormones that are absolutely essential for maintaining harmony of various body functions. Thyroid hormone expedites speed of body’s chemical reaction and has positive influence on growth of an individual (mental and physical).

Hypothyroidism Symptoms

Symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism and their degree of severity may vary and depend on the duration and extent of thyroid hormone deficiency. Individuals with hypothyroidism may experience:

  • Fatigue

  • Weakness

  • Intolerance to cold

  • Muscleaching and cramps

  • Constipation

  • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight

  • Poor appetite

  • Goiter(enlarged thyroid gland)

  • Dry, rough skin

  • Coarse hair or hair loss

  • Eye and face swelling

  • Deeper and/or hoarse voice

  • Irregular or heavy menstrual periods

  • Depression

  • Memory loss

  • Slowed thinking and mental activity

  • Increased blood cholesterol levels

Remarks:

Reduced secretion of thyroid hormones can produce myriad of symptoms that vary from person to person and with the age of patient. The common symptoms include signs excessive tiredness and sleepiness, weight gain, intolerance to cold, hoarseness of voice, deafness, dry flaky skin and hair, loss of hair, body swelling, constipation, depression, etc. The condition is much more common in females.

One reason for such reduced production of thyroid hormone may be deficiency of raw material i.e. dietary iodine. But hypothyroidism can develop in absence of dietary iodine deficiency also. The cause for such cases may not be known always, but it is largely believed to be due to disturbances of immune system where bodys defense system starts attacking bodys own organs and tissues.

Hypothyroidism is a constitutional disorder affecting multiple body systems and calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.

The science of homoeopathy is based on the concept that disease is total affliction of body and may find its local expression at the level of certain organs. Hence homoeopathy medicines take into account presenting complaints along with physical, emotional, and genetic make up of a person that individualizes him/her.

Related Health Complications of Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism may contribute to the development of heart disease. Blood cholesterol levels may be increased, with some studies suggesting an increase in heart disease and myocardial infarcts (heart attacks) as a result. Furthermore, the efficiency of the heart's ability to contract may be reduced with hypothyroidism.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment:

Homoeopathy is very strongly suggested for cases of hypothyroidism. Homoeopathy helps in alleviating all the symptoms associated with the condition. Moreover, homoeopathy works at root level to bring deviations of immunity and harmony of the body back to normalcy.

Gall Stone

Get Latest Price

Gallstones are clumps of crystallized cholesterol or some pigments in the gallbladder. This condition is fairly common (affects 11% of general population) women are twice as likely as men to develop gallstones. (Medical dictum for Gallstones is: It’s a disease of fat female of forty).

Gallbladder is a small sac situated just under the liver and it produces bile juice that is essential for proper digestion of fats. The bile juice mainly contains cholesterol, water, bile salts and a pigment called Bilirubin. When the proportion of these contents is altered in the bile juice, gallstones start forming.

There are two basic types of gallstones:

  • Cholesterol gallstones: Made up of cholesterol (accounting for about 80% of cases)
  • Pigment stones: Made up of the pigment Bilirubin

Factors contributing to development of gallstones:

  • Obesity

  • It’s twice as common in females as compared to male

  • People over age of 60 years are at higher ris

  • Fasting, diabetes, rapid weight loss can also lead to formation of gallstones in some cases

Many patients having gallstones may not have any complaint. However, some may experience pain in the upper abdomen radiating to the back. The pain may last up to 2-6 hours.

Remarks:

All the factors that form stone are present in the bile under normal circumstances; however, they are in a dissolved state. If there is increase in concentration of cholesterol or pigments, they crystallize and precipitate out as stones. Factors such as increasing age, pregnancy, obesity, liver disorders, infections can have impact on development of gallstones. Some studies suggest that genetics and heredity factors are at the root of this condition that makes one prone to have gallstones

Suggestion about homoeopathic treatment:

When the stones are of a smaller size, homoeopathic medicines will help in the dissolution of stones and passage of the stone. Homoeopathy medicines are effective in alleviating pain associated with the condition. It the stones are bigger, multiple and impacted, it may require surgical intervention. But even after surgical removal of stones,homoeopathy still has a role to play in preventing its recurrence (as the chance of having recurring stones are about 50%).

Acne

Acne

Get Latest Price

Acne or pimples is a common skin condition frequently seen in young individuals during teenage and youth years. This occurs mainly due to the action of hormones on the oil glands in the skin. The draining ducts of the oil glands get blocked and hence they are not able to drain the oil secretion. The oil and cells inside the blocked gland form a perfect environment for the growth of Propionibacterium acnes (the organism responsible for acne). Thus, it results in the formation of pimples or acne.

Acne usually occurs on the face, chest, back, shoulders and neck. Though it can affect other parts of body too,like neck,back & chest.It is one of the most common skin conditions. Although acne is not a serious threat to the health, yet it can lead to scarring and disfigurement of the face that can have a significant impact on the patient.

Acne may present itself in various forms and these are as follows:

  1. Whiteheads and blackheads (Comedones): White or black tiny bumps on the skin which are nothing but the enlarged and plugged hair follicles
  2. Papules: Inflamed lesions that usually appear as small, pink bumps on the skin and can be tender to the touch
  3. Pustules (pimples): Pus-filled lesions that may be red at the base
  4. Nodules: Large, painful, solid lesions that are lodged deep within the skin 
    lesions that can cause scarring

Following are the commonly recognized types of Acne:

  1. Acne vulgaris
  2. Acne rosacea
  3. Acne conglobata
  4. Acne cosmetica
  5. Acne fulminans
  6. Acne medicamentosa
  7. Acne keloidalis nuchae

Causes of Acne:

One of the most important causes is the increase in the male hormones (androgens) that occurs in boys as well as girls during puberty. These hormones cause an increased production of sebum (oil) and hence result in acne. Hormonal changes related to pregnancy or such changes caused by starting or stopping birth control pills can also cause acne. Another factor is heredity or genetics; there is evidence to support the fact that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents. Apart from this certain drugs, including androgens and lithium, are also known to cause acne. Greasy cosmetics may cause further plugging of the follicles in the skin and hence can precipitate the onset of acne. Majority of people who develop acne are between the ages of 12 and 25. For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their thirties; however, some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem.

Self-Care at Home

Wash once or twice daily with soap and water to remove excess oil from the skin. An acne cleanser purchased over-the-counter in any drug store can also be helpful. Avoid scrubbing too abrasively because this can actually irritate the skin and cause acne to worsen.

Homeopathic treatment:

Homeopathic treatment for Acne is strongly suggested. It helps in the following ways:

  1. Controls the tendency to have acne (often genetic, in severe cases)
  2. Addresses underlying hormonal disturbance which gives one a proneness to have acne
  3. Reduces excessive oiliness of skin
  4. Reduces acne directly
  5. Controls infection
  6. Controls scar formation
  7. Reduces hyperpigmentation following acn
  8. Controls tendency to scar formation following acne.

Spondylitis

Spondylitis

Get Latest Price

Cervical spondylitis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical (neck) spine that most likely is caused by age-related changes (wear and tear) in the intervertebral disks and vertebrae of the neck. Research has shown that CSM (cervical spondylotic myelopathy) is the most common cause of non-traumatic weakness in limbs and a persistent stiffness and nagging pain in the neck.

'Spondylo' is a Greek word-meaning vertebra.Spondylitis (or Spondylosis) means changes in the vertebral joint characterized by increasing degeneration of the intervertebral disc with subsequent changes in the bones and soft tissues.

Most often in people above the age of 40, the intervertebral discs get progressively dehydrated and they becomes more compressible and less elastic. Mineral deposition starts occurring in the intervertebral disc resulting in secondary changes.Although majority of individuals over 40 years of age demonstrate significant radiological evidence of the above changes, only a small percentage develop symptoms of the same. Another noteworthy point is that sometimes the degenerative changes in the cervical spine can be visible on the X-ray as early as in 30s but it does not call for any treatment if the patient is not symptomatic.

The above changes result in compression of the nerves leading to radiculopathy (pain, numbness, weakness and loss of reflex due to compression and irritation of spinal nerve) or compression of the spinal cord resulting incervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) (commonly caused by spinal stenosis resulting in loss of movements and sensation). Both the neural and spinal cord compression will result in radiculomyelopathy.

Cervical Spondylitis Symptoms

There are quite a few symptoms that indicate cervical spondylitis. These symptoms may show up distinctively, or may overlap one another. The following are the commonly seen symptoms of cervical spondylitis:

  1. Pain in the neck and shoulder regions. The pain in the neck region is usually followed by stiffening, which gradually increases. The pain in the neck area can also move downwards to the shoulders and the arms. Some patients may also experience swelling.
  2. Pain in the lower areas at the back of the head, called the sub-occipital region. This pain can move downwards to the base of the neck, as well as the top of the head. 
  3. Radicular symptoms. Patients may sometimes display loss of reflexes in certain areas due to the compression of the spinal nerves. Other radicular symptoms include numbness and pain in specific areas, usually the arms and the shoulders. 

  4. Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM). Patients with CSM may experience difficulty in writing, unusual sensations, as well as weakness.

  5. In rare cases, one may find loss of control over the sphincter, as well as incontinence while passing urine. Some patients may also experience urgency in passing urine. 

  6. A patient suffering from cervical spondylitis suffers from compression of the spinal cord, which in turn leads to a compression of the spinal nerves. This may manifest itself in the form of an unstable gait. 

  7. Another prominent symptom is the weakening of the muscles in the upper arms, slowly progressing to the lower regions of the arms. This is preceded by pain in the upper region of the arms.

Hyperthyroidism

Get Latest Price

Thyroid is small gland situated in the midline and base of the neck. The gland produces thyroid hormones T4 (Tetraiodothyronine/Thyroxine) and T3 (Triiodothyronine) that are absolutely essential for maintaining harmony of various body functions. Thyroid hormones govern the speed of body’s chemical reaction and have positive influence on growth of an individual (mental and physical). Because thyroid hormones affect growth, development and many cellular processes, excess of thyroid hormones has widespread consequences on the body

Causes

There are many causes that can cause over activity of the thyroid gland and in most cases the entire gland is producing more hormones, this is seen in Graves disease. Graves disease is actually an auto-immune disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly starts attacking its own cells (in this case the thyroid gland) resulting in inflammation and enlargement of the gland (Goiter) and production of excess hormones. In some cases, there is a particular solitary nodule in the gland (called nodule) that is producing more hormones; there may also be multiple such nodules in the gland Inflammation of the thyroid gland (Thyroiditis) due to any other cause can also result in hyperthyroidism.

Symptoms

Increased secretion of thyroid hormones can produce myriad of symptoms that vary from person to person and with the age of patient. The common symptoms include:

  • Weight loss despite normal or increased appetite

  • Palpitations

  • Heat intolerance

  • Nervousness

  • Insomnia

  • Difficulty in breathing

  • Increased bowel movements

  • Light or absent menstrual periods

  • Fatigue

  • Tremors of hands and fingers

  • Irritability

  • Excessive perspiration

Signs commonly seen in patients with Hyperthyroidism:

  • Fast heart rate

  • Muscle weakness

  • Trembling hands

  • Weight loss

  • Hair loss

  • Staring gaze

  • Warm moist skin

  • Lump in the neck (Goiter)

Remarks:

Hyperthyroidism being a constitutional disorder calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management. The science of homoeopathy is based on the concept that disease is total affliction of body and may find its local expression at the level of certain organs. Hence homoeopathy prescription take into account presenting complaints along with physical, emotional and genetic make up of a person that individualizes him/her. The remedy prescribed based on this entire totality treats the disorder at its root cause and thus restores the normal functioning of the body.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment:

Homoeopathy is very strongly suggested for cases of hyperthyroidism. Homoeopathy helps in alleviating the symptoms associated with the condition. Moreover, homoeopathy works at a deeper level to bring deviations of immunity back to normalcy and to restore the harmony of the body.

Kidney Stones- Stone Lying In Kidney
Get Best Quote

Kidney stones are clumps developed from solidified crystals in the kidney or urinary tract. The urine has all the ingredients that form the stone, but all these ideally pass through without our knowledge. When there is an imbalance in any of these substances, the crystals cluster together into stones. The size of the stone can be as small as a grain of sand to one as large as the size of a golf ball. The most commonly found kidney stone in humans is usually made of calcium oxalate. Other rare varieties of kidney stones include those made up of cystine, struvite (magnesium, ammonium and phosphate), calcium phosphate, uric acid, etc.

Kidney stones are one of the most painful of the urologic disorders. Men tend to be affected more frequently than women.

Causes of Kidney stone formation:

Certain foods may promote stone formation in people who are susceptible. This stone formation is enhanced when there is increased intake of calcium, calcium oxalate, uric acid or salt in our diet, with an inadequate intake of fluids. A positive family history (genetic tendency) also makes a person prone to kidney stone formation.

Certain foods that increase the risk for kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals include:

Spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, peanuts, cocoa, beet, coffee, cola, nuts, strawberries, tomato juice, grapefruit juice, apple juice, soda (acidic and contains phosphorus), all types of tea, and berries.

Symptoms of Kidney stones:

Kidney stones can remain asymptomatic until they obstruct the flow of urine. When obstruction to the flow of urine occurs at some point of time, the patient starts experiencing acute symptoms. Patient usually presents with the most agonizing pain in the lower back just below the ribs, which often extends into the groin area (described as ‘loin to groin’ radiation of pain). The patient may also experience nausea, vomiting, blood in the urine (haematuria), restlessness and fever (if infection is present).

Stones less than 5 mm in size usually pass out spontaneously; however the majority of stones greater than 6 mm require some form of intervention, especially so if the stone is stuck causing persistent obstruction and/or infection of the urinary tract.

Self-Care at Home

  • Prevention is always the preferable way to treat kidney stones. Remaining well hydrated and keeping the urine dilute will help prevent kidney stones from forming.

  • Please note, if there is fever associated with the symptoms of a kidney stone, this becomes a more urgent problem, and medical care should be accessed immediately.

Prevention

  • While kidney stones and renal colic probably cannot be prevented, the risk of forming a stone can be minimized by avoiding dehydration. Keeping the urine dilute will not allow the chemical crystals to come out of solution and form the nidus of a stone. Making certain that the urine remains clear and not concentrated (yellow) will help minimize stone formation.

  • Medication may be prescribed for certain types of stones, and compliance with taking the medication is a must to reduce the risk of future stone episodes.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment:

When the stone size is small, homoeopathy is likely to help in the passage of stone as well as in relieving the agonizing pain caused by the same. If the stone size is larger, or the stone is impacted, or there are multiple stones, then the patient is better treated surgically. However, even after surgical removal of stones, homoeopathy still has a role to play in preventing its recurrence (as the chance of having recurring stones are about 70-80%).

PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease)
Get Best Quote
PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease) or PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a disease characterized by multiple (‘poly’) cysts (small sacs filled with fluid) in the ovaries.

Patients with PCOD have abnormal levels of hormones that result in irregular menses, infertility and certain masculine changes in the body. Women with PCOS do not ovulate -- they do not release an egg every month -- and they are at significantly higher risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer of the uterus (endometrial cancer). Much of this risk can be reversed by exercise and weight loss.

Symptoms:

Generally, the patient presents with the following symptoms:

  • Irregular menses (usually delayed)

  • Weight gain and difficulty in losing weight

  • Acne, oily skin, dandruff

  • Excessive hair growth on the face, chest, back

  • Thinning of hair

  • Infertility

  • Miscarriage

  • High blood pressure

  • Diabetes

  • High cholesterol

Remarks:

Various hormones of the body operate in harmony to regularize smooth functioning of all systems including the reproductive system.

The disturbance of hormonal mechanism makes the ovaries produce excessive amount of the male reproductive hormones (androgens) and at the same time there is failure of egg formation. This excess of androgens with absence of ovulation may cause infertility.

With this understanding, that the disturbed hormonal functioning of the body lies at the root of PCOD, it can be easily perceived that this constitutional disorder will require constitutional approach towards its rectification.

Homeopathic approach towards management of PCOD is constitutional, taking into account the presenting complaints along with physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. Homeopathic medicines which act at root level can bring back deviations of hormonal system back to normalcy and in many cases abolish the need for exogenous hormones with their side-effects and complicating surgical procedures. Moreover, with this hormonal harmony, chances of conception increase significantly.

Prostatitis

Get Latest Price

Inflammation of the prostate gland, a very common health concern, accounting for up to 25% of all medical office visits by young and middle-age men for problems relating to the genital and urinary systems. The prostate is a small organ about the size of a walnut that is situated below the bladder (where urine is stored) and surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder).

There are 4 types of prostatitis:

  1. Acute bacterial prostatitisis the least common type. It often causes chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, body aches, burning or painful urination, and the frequent and urgent need to urinate.
  1. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is also relatively uncommon. It is acute prostatitis superimposed on a defect in the prostate, which becomes the focal point for the persistent bacterial infection.
  2. Nonbacterial prostatitis is the most common and least understood form of prostatitis. It is a chronic, painful condition. Symptoms go away and then come back without warning. The urine and fluid from the prostate show no evidence of a known infecting organism, but the semen and other fluids from the prostate contain cells that the body usually produces to fight infection.
  3. Prostatodynia is similar to nonbacterial prostatitis with regard to symptoms, age of patients, and ineffectiveness of treatment. However, there are no objective findings, such as the presence of infection-fighting cells, in the urine of men who suffer from prostatodynia.

Remarks:

Process of inflammation of the prostate gland can have many causes varying from bacteria and fungus to trauma either mechanical or chemical, stress, or even disturbances in body’s immune system.

The science of homoeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Hence homoeopathy approach is to treat the patient who is diseased rather than treating isolated diseased organs of the body. Homoeopathy medicines are very effective in alleviating pain and other symptoms associated with this condition. Considering the recurring nature of the disease, homoeopathy is very effective in preventing relapse of the condition.

Sinusitis

Get Latest Price

Sinus infection, or sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages. A sinus infection can cause a headache or pressure in the eyes, nose, cheek area, or on one side of the head. A person with a sinus infection may also have a cough, a fever, bad breath, and nasal congestion with thick nasal secretions. Sinusitis is categorized as acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long term, the most common type).

  • Frontal sinuses over the eyes in the brow area

  • Maxillary sinuses inside each cheekbone

  • Ethmoid sinuses just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes

  • Sphenoid sinuses behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes

Classification:
Sinusitis can be classified (based on the duration) into:

  1. Acute sinusitis

  2. Chronic sinusitis

  3. Recurrent sinusitis


Causes: 
Acute sinusitis usually follows a viral infection in the upper respiratory tract, but allergens (allergy–causing substances), or pollutants may also trigger acute sinusitis. A viral infection causes damage to the cells of the sinus lining, which leads to inflammation. The lining thickens with fluid that obstructs the nasal passage. This passage connects to the sinuses. The obstruction disrupts the process that removes bacteria normally present in the nasal passages, and the bacteria begin to multiply and invade the lining of the sinus. This causes the symptoms of sinus infection.

The common causes of this condition include:
• Viruses
• Bacteria
• Fungus
• Excessive nose blowing
• Foreign objects in nostril (especially in children)
• Scuba diving
• Side effects of certain drugs
• Tooth caries
• Allergies

Symptoms:

The common symptoms of sinusitis include:
• Nasal congestion and discharge that may be yellowish or greenish
• Cough with production of mucus
• Discharge from the back of the nose into the throat
• Bad breath
• Reduced sense of smell/ taste
• Headache
• Toothache
• Pain in the region of the affected sinus (see the illustration on Sinuses) 
• Fever
• Tiredness
• Weakness

Self–Care at Home
Home care can help open the sinuses and alleviate their dryness. 

Promote drainage
Drink plenty of water and hydrating beverages. Hot tea is often recommended.
Inhale steam two to four times per day by leaning over a bowl of boiling hot water (not while the water is on the stove) or using a steam vaporizer with a towel over the head and bowl to prevent the escape of the steam. Inhale the steam for about 10 minutes. Taking a hot, steamy shower may also work.Prevention

Prevention of a sinus infection depends on its cause.

  1. Avoid contracting upper respiratory tract infections.
  2. Maintain strict hand–washing habits and avoid people who are obviously suffering from a cold.
  3. Stress reduction and a diet rich in antioxidants, especially fresh, dark–colored fruits and vegetables, may help strengthen the immune system

Homeopathic treatment:
What needs to be treated in sinusitis is not only the acute infection or inflammation, but also the inherent tendency to have sinusitis repeatedly. Individual tendency to frequent upper respiratory infections or sinusitis can best be treated with homeopathic approach of individualistic treatment. Recurring sinusitis finds wonderful treatment with homeopathy. Homeopathy treats acute infections as well as the tendency to have infections or allergy. It is almost always possible to avoid and sinus surgery if one adopts the homeopathic alternative.

Well, migraine headache has been described as an episodic, paroxysmal headache, usually but not necessarily affecting one side of the head; which may or may not be associated with giddiness, nausea, vomiting or visual impairment. The painful episode of migraine is usually intense and lasting for half an hour to over a couple of days.

Cause of Disease

The exact cause often remains unknown. It has been proved that migraine is a vascular disorder. Due to some triggering factors, varying from person to person, there is some kind of vasoconstriction and vasodilatation of the branches of the carotid artery ( the major neck blood vessel) which leads to typical throbbing and congestive attack of headache.

While the exact causation in unknown, it has been observed in practice that migraine is often psychosomatic in origin. There are migraine personality and we have observed in a study of a series of migraine patients at our center, that, there is also a common thread in the migraine personality type.

Many independent studies at various institutes have also shown that most migraine sufferers show one or many of the following behavioral patter conscientiousness, fastidiousness, rigidity of views, constant conflict between the environment and self, high level of expectation.

Migraine sufferers are more females than males. However, we are observing a shift. Often observed to be running in the family, showing hereditary links.

The symptomatology of migraine:

  • Migraine headache is a subjective experience. The commonly described pain is typically throbbing, bursting, hammering, or shattering. The pain might start on one side or a spot on the head and spreading to any other place. Ocular areas often affected. The pain is usually severe, intense and tends to be associated with nausea, giddiness and generalized sense of malaise. Many patients feel relieved if there is vomiting.

    The episodes of pain are periodic, may be weekly, daily , fortnightly, monthly or irregular.

Hypertension

Get Latest Price

Raised blood pressure is labeled as hypertension. In realism, blood pressure of an individual tends to increase with advancing age. So, term hypertension will be used when blood pressure exceeds the normal range for a particular age group. Unattended blood pressure can lead to a number of serious complications including stroke, heart diseases, kidney failure, etc.

Remarks:

Hypertension is very common in general population. However, in 95% of cases a specific underlying cause of hypertension cannot be pointed out. This hypertension is labeled as essential hypertension and is believed to be related to genetic and heredity factors. There are multiple factors that increase chances of hypertension significantly: Age, Obesity, High levels of body fats (cholesterol), Excess consumption of alcohol and smoking, Food (more salt intake), Life-style factors (lack of exercise, lack of sleep, mental stress, etc). There is a very small group of cases where hypertension is a result of some specific disease condition in the body and is labeled as secondary hypertension.

It can be easily perceived that hypertension is a constitutional disorder as constitutional defect (genetic factors) is at the base of it and the disorder itself has impact on entire constitution of an individual. While treating hypertension, the treatment needs to be planned to focus at a root level: to affect the genetic tendency. Homeopathic treatment does that precisely.

SelfCare at Home

The management and control of high blood pressure involves two major options, lifestyle modification (detailed here) and medications.

  • Lifestyle options include changing what you eat and your activity level.

  • Quitting smoking and moderating alcohol consumption will also help keep your blood pressure in the healthy range.

Maintain a healthy weight.

  • If you are overweight or obese, lose weight. Aim for a healthy weight range for your height and body type. Your health care provider can help you calculate a target weight.

  • Even a small amount of weight loss can make a major difference in lowering or preventing high blood pressure.

  • To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you take in.

  • Crash or fad diets are not helpful and may be dangerous.

  • Some weight loss medications also carry major risks and may even elevate blood pressure, and great caution is advised in using these drugs.

  • The healthiest and longestlasting weight loss requires slow loss, such as losing onehalf to one pound each week. Eating 500 calories less than you burn every day may help achieve this goal. In a week, you will eat 3500 calories less than you burn, which is enough to lose one pound.

  • ncreasing your physical activity will help you burn more calories.

Lose weight and keep it off :

  • Choose foods low in calories and fat. Fat is a concentrated source of calories. You should cut down on butter, margarine, regular salad dressing, fatty or red meats, the skin of poultry, whole milk, cheese, fried foods, ice cream, many cookies, cakes, pastries, and snacks.

  • Instead, choose baked, broiled, or poached chicken and turkey (without skin), fish, lean cuts of meat (such as round or sirloin); skim, 1%, or evaporated milk; lower fat, lowsodium cheeses; fresh, frozen, or canned fruit or vegetables (without butter, cream, or cheese sauces); plain whole wheat rice and pasta; whole wheat English muffins; whole wheat bagels; whole wheat sandwich bread and rolls; soft tortillas; cold (readyeat) and hot wholegrain cereals (avoid instant types, which are high in sodium).

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Get Latest Price

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is one of many forms of chronic inflammatory arthritis, affecting the spine, especially the joints between the vertebrae of the spine and the joints between the spine and the pelvis (sacro-iliac joints). It may also affect other joints of the body. The joints are initially inflamed and this may be followed by progressive stiffness and inflexibility. It eventually leads to the fusion of the spine, giving permanent painful stiffness of the back. It is often called bamboo spine, as the spine tends get stiff like a bamboo. This condition is more common in males as compared to females and usually occurs in individuals between 16-40 years of age.

Cause of Disease

The exact cause of Ankylosing spondylitis is not understood. It has been considered to be an autoimmune disease (like many others such as Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Alopecia Areata, Thyroiditis, etc.). Genetic factors are likely to be involved. The majority of people with Ankylosing spondylitis have a gene called HLA-B27. However, the presence of HLA-B27 (Human Leukocyte Antigen B27) is not absolutely diagnostic of Ankylosing Spondylitis. There are theories on its link with some bacterial infection as a triggering factor.

Diagnosis:

Presence of HLA-B27 antigen, increased levels of CRP (C- Reactive Proteins) and ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) along with suggestive clinical history help in diagnosis of Ankylosing spondylitis.

  1. Symptoms:

These include painful stiffness of the lower back and hips which is often worse in the morning or after periods of inactivity. Over a period of time, the pain and stiffness may progress up the spine and to other joints such as hips, shoulders, knees and feet. Reduced mobility may be noted by the patient and gradually he may notice difficulty in bending the spine. In advanced stages of the condition patient may notice chronic stooping, stiff and inflexible spine, restricted expansion of the chest. Features such as loss of appetite, fatigue, weight-loss, inflammation of the eyes (iritis) and of the bowels may also be seen.

Homeopathic treatment: Homeopathic treatment helps three ways:

The total length of treatment varies form case to case, depending of the following factors:

  • Control underlying disease process
  • Significant Relief in pain and stiff ness
  • Strengthening the muscles, ligaments & disc.

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) being a constitutional disorder calls for a constitutional approach to its treatment. Homeopathic approach incorporates detailed study of the cases of AS inclusive of the genetic trend of the patients. The remedy prescribed after such detailed evaluation offers effective pain control as well as helps in controlling the progress of this condition. Early cases of AS can be treated with good success with homoeopathy. Cases that have advanced to a moderate extent can also be helped, especially in preventing the further progress of the disease and limiting the pain. However, severe cases can only be relieved symptomatically with homoeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is strongly suggested for Ankylosing Spondylitis, especially in the early and mid stages. Patients opting for homeopathic treatment do better than those who do not.

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic (long-lasting) skin disorder and is non-contagious in nature i.e. it cannot be passed from one person to another. The word "dermatitis" means inflammation of the skin. "Atopic" comes from the word “Atopy” that includes a group of diseases in which there is an inherited tendency to develop allergic conditions.

In Atopic dermatitis, the skin becomes extremely itchy. On scratching the affected parts there may be redness, swelling, cracking, oozing of clear fluid, crusting and scaling. This entire sequence occurs as a gradual process and all of these may not always be seen at the same time.

During the course of the disease there may be periods when the disease becomes worse; such periods are called flare-ups or exacerbations. Then there may also be periods when the skin symptoms improve or clears up completely and such periods are called remissions.

In some cases as the children suffering from Atopic dermatitis grow older, their skin disease improves or disappears altogether. In spite of this their skin may remain dry and easily irritated. In other cases, Atopic dermatitis may continue to be a significant problem even in adulthood.

Homoeopathic Treatment :

Homoeopathy is considered to be the best therapeutic system for treating such ailments, where we prescribe medicines which have no side effects & have an effective, faster relief of symptoms.

  1. Medicines help combating the inflammatory process

  2. Helps reducing the itching & discomfort

  3. Helps regain the normal texture & color of the skin.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Get Latest Price

IBS is one of the most common disorder of digestive system producing a spectrum of symptoms such as persistent and recurring abdominal pain associated with passing of motion, change of bowel habit (diarrhea, constipation, or alternate diarrhea and constipation), etc. without any apparent cause. The word syndrome means a group of symptoms. IBS is a syndrome because it can cause several symptoms in addition to those mentioned, like cramping, bloating, gas, frequent urge to pass stools, sensation of incomplete evacuation etc.

IBS is the disorder of function, which means that the bowel doesn't work, as it should. If one visualizes the bowel, it appears perfectly normal without any inflammation or other structural changes. In people with IBS, the intestines squeeze too hard or not hard enough and cause food to move too quickly or too slowly through the intestines.

Through the years, IBS has been called by many names--colitis, mucous colitis, spastic colon, spastic bowel, and functional bowel disease, irritable colon, and nervous colon. Most of these terms are inaccurate and refers to understanding of diseases at that particular time frame. Colitis, for instance, means inflammation of the large intestine (colon). IBS, however, does not cause inflammation of the bowel and should not be confused with another disorders like ulcerative colitis.

Prevalence

IBS is very common condition across the globe and it is estimated that around 20% of people suffer from this condition some time during their life time. Over 40 million Americans and one third of the UK population suffer from IBS sometime in life. It is the single most common reason for which people seek gastroenterologist’s opinion. The statistics state that people miss work for IBS and related disorders more than for anything else, except colds.

IBS though affect people of all ages and both the sexes; it is more common in young people; usually in late adolescence or early adulthood. The condition is almost two to three times common in females as compared to males.

Nature of condition

Almost everything about IBS is totally dependent on the individual patient. For some, IBS may arise during times of stress or crisis, and then subside once the stressful event has passed. For others, IBS strikes seemingly randomly and without warning and never completely goes away. The duration of IBS is different for everybody. The symptoms may wax and wane, being particularly severe at some times and absent at others.

To sum up, this is a chronic relapsing condition.

Effect on lifestyle

IBS can be nothing more than a mild annoyance, completely debilitating, or anywhere in between. Again, it depends on the person and how he or she reacts to it and treats it. IBS can, however, be very painful and can severely affect a person's quality of life, and is second only to the common cold as a cause of absenteeism from work.

IBS and Stress

The key point is that IBS is strongly related to emotional stress and strain. Research on the psychosocial aspects of these disorders has yielded three general observations:

  • Psychological stress exacerbates gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • Psychological disturbances amplify illness experience and adversely affect health status.
  • Having a functional GI disorder like IBS impairs the quality of one’s life.

Lipoma

Get Latest Price

A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty tumor situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. Often a lipoma is easy to identify because it moves readily with slight finger pressure. It's doughy to touch and usually not tender. You could have several that persist for years. Lipomas can occur at any age, but they're most often detected in middle age.

A lipoma isn't cancer and is usually harmless. Treatment generally isn't necessary.

Signs and symptoms

Lipoma symptoms include:

  • Location. A lipoma is a flattened lump located just under your skin. Lipomas often occur in the neck, shoulders, back, arms and thighs.

  • Feel. A lipoma feels soft and doughy and moves easily with slight finger pressure.

  • Size. Most often, lipomas remain small less than 2 inches (5 centimeters) in diameter but they can grow large, reaching more than 4 inches (10 centimeters) across.

  • Pain. Lipomas can be painful if they grow and press on nearby nerves, or if they contain many blood vessels.

Because it grows slowly, you might have a lipoma for years before you notice it.

Causes

The exact cause of lipomas isn't clear. Sometimes lipomas are detected after an injury. But it's uncertain whether they're caused by the trauma or whether their detection was just incidental. Lipomas also tend to run in families, so genetic factors likely play a role in their development.

Remarks:

Often, treatment of a lipoma is not necessary, unless the tumor becomes painful or restricts movement. People opt for treatment largely for cosmetic reasons.

Lipoma is a true surgical condition as medicines cannot dissolve the accumulated fat. Hence surgical removal is the mainstay management for Lipoma. If they do not harm you, they are better not disturbed surgically.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment:

Homoeopathic treatment is one way of non-surgically treating this condition,though the chances are very minimal for good result. The Chances are 25-30%.

Spondilitis or spondylitis is a condition where there is an inflammation of lumber (lower vertebral) spine. The inflammation can be mild, moderate or severe leading to a range of severity of symptoms. There is not only inflammation of the vertebra but also some amount of fusing, which gives painful stiffness

Symptoms:

The symptoms of varying degree of pain associate with stiffness. There may be restricted mobility of the back, disturbing day to day life activities. There may also be deformity of the spine over the period of time.

Related conditions:

Ankylosing Spondylitis is a similar condition which is more severe and considered to be an auto-immune disease, related with HLA-B-27 gene. The stiffness associated with muscle spasm leads to stiff-spine, often compared with a bamboo spine.

Rheumatoid Arthritis: Similar condition but affects more of the multiple and often large joints such as knee, shoulder, fingers and back. Positive Rh factor is a diagnosing modality.

Self-Care at Home

Good sleeping posture with a small pillow on a firm mattress in either the supine (lying face upward) position or the prone (lying face downward) position helps in alleviating pain and stiffness in persons with ankylosing spondylitis

Prevention

  • Daily bending, twisting, and gentle range of motion exercises help prevent postural deformities and restriction of joint movement. Stretching exercises minimize the long-term impact of spinal stiffness and restrictions.

  • Breathing exercises are recommended to prevent chest wall immobility. Cessation of smoking is also strongly recommended.

Is there homeopathic for Lumbar Spondylitis?

Yes, homeopathy does offer significant treatment for this condition. The treatment is targeted at relieving the inflammation and stiffness, making the life comfortable. Also, the underlying process leading to such chronic inflammation is addressed using the homeopathic medicines. However, There are dim chances that homeopathy can revert the deformity.

Alopecia Areata

Get Latest Price

Alopecia areata (‘baldness in spots') is a form of hair loss, usually from the scalp, although it can affect other areas of the body. The hair loss mostly remains limited to the scalp but in certain cases it can extend to eyebrows, eyelashes, facial hair (beard, moustache), nasal hair and give rise to bald spots anywhere in the body.

Alopecia can affect both men and women and it is not uncommon to see children affected with this disorder. Approximately 2% of the general population worldwide suffers from alopecia areata.

Understanding alopecia areata:

The hair is made up of a protein called keratin which is also the main constituent of nails. A specialised structure inside the skin called ‘Papilla' produces the hair as shown in the figure. The papilla is surrounded by a sac-like structure called the ‘Hair follicle' which also surrounds rest of the hair root within the skin. The part of the hair outside the skin surface is called as shaft.

Alopecia areata is considered to be an auto-immune condition in which the immune system of the body (which protects the body from bacteria and viruses) mistakenly attacks the hair follicles and destroys them. This leads to hair loss in the affected area.

The commonest presentation of alopecia areata is appearance of bald patches on the scalp. In most cases, hair falls out in small, round patches about the size of a small coin. The patient may have single or multiple such patches. In some cases these patches may remain static, whereas in some cases the patches may spread to involve larger areas of the scalp. In some cases, hair loss is more extensive. Although it is not very common, the disease can progress to cause total loss of hair on the head (alopecia areata totalis) or complete loss of hair on the head, face, and rest of the body (alopecia areata universalis).

Types of Alopecia areata:
  • Alopecia areata monolocularis: In this condition there is a single bald spot on the scalp.
  • Alopecia areata multilocularis: In this condition there are multiple bald spot on the scalp.
  • Alopecia areata totalis: In this condition, the patient loses all the hair on the scalp.
  • Alopecia areata universalis: In this condition, all body hair, including pubic hair, is lost.
  • Alopecia areata barbae: In this condition, the disease is limited only to the beard region.
  • Traction alopecia: In this condition, alopecia develops along the frontal margins and temporal margins of the scalp due to constant tension on the hair from being tied very tightly.

Causes

Alopecia areata is considered to be an auto-immune condition in which the immune system of the body (which protects the body from bacteria, viruses, allergens, etc.) mistakenly attacks the hair follicles and destroys them. This leads to hair loss in the affected area.

One or more of the following factors may be found responsible in cases of alopecia areata:

  • Hormonal cause: High levels of the male hormones (in men as well as in women) can trigger the onset of alopecia
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Drugs and medications:
    1. Commonest is this group are chemotherapy drugs, certain medicines used for gout, arthritis, depression, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, etc
    2. Large doses of Vitamin A can also trigger alopecia
    3. Oral contraceptive pills
    4. Chemical treatment of hair, exposure of hair to excessive heat
    5. Low levels of iron
    6. Poor protein intake
    7. Physical stress: After undergoing some major surgery, or due to some chronic illness, rapid weight loss due to dieting
    8. SLE (Systemic lupus erythematosus)
    9. Fungal infection of the scalp.

Depression

Get Latest Price

Throughout the course of our lives, we all experience episodes of unhappiness, sadness, or grief. Often, when a loved one dies or we suffer a personal tragedy or difficulty such as divorce or loss of a job, we may feel depressed (some people call this "the blues"). Most of us are able to cope with these and other types of stressful events.

Over a period of days or weeks, the majority of us are able to return to our normal activities. But when these feelings of sadness and other symptoms make it hard for us to get through the day, and when the symptoms last for more than a couple of weeks, we may have what is called clinical depression. The term "clinical depression" is usually used to distinguish "true" depression from the blues.

Clinical depression is not just grief or sadness. It is an illness that can challenge your ability to perform even routine daily activities. At its worst, depression may lead you to contemplate or commit suicide. Depression represents a burden for both you and your family. Sometimes that burden can seem overwhelming.

Depression Causes

The causes of depression are complex. Genetic, biological, and environmental factors can contribute to its development. In some people, depression can be traced to a single cause, while in others, a number of causes are at play. For many, the causes are never known.

  • Currently,it appears that there are biochemical causes for depression, occurring as a result of abnormalities in the levels of certain chemicals in the brain.
  • These chemicals are called neurotransmitters. The abnormalities are thought to be biological and are not caused by anything you did.
  • While we still don't know exactly how levels of these neurotransmitters affect mood, we do know that the levels can be affected by a number of factors.
  • Heredity: Certain types of depression seem to run in certain families. Research is ongoing as to exactly which genes are involved in depression. Just because someone is your family has depression, however, doesn't mean you will. Sometimes, family members who were known to abuse alcohol or other drugs were unwittingly trying to improve their mood (often called "self-medication" by professionals). Likewise, you can become depressed even if no one else in your family is known to have depression.

  • Personality: People with certain personality traits are more likely to become depressed. These include negative thinking, pessimism, excess worry, low self-esteem, overdependence on others, and ineffective responses to stress.

  • Situations: Difficult life events, loss, change, or persistent stress can cause levels of neurotransmitters to become unbalanced, leading to depression. Even happy events, such as childbirth, can be stressful and cause postpartum depression.

  • Medical conditions: Depression is more likely to occur with certain medical conditions. These "co-occurring" conditions include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, hormonal disorders (especially perimenopause or hypothyroidism, known as "low thyroid"), Parkinson disease, and Alzheimer disease. Clinical depression should not be considered a normal or natural reaction to illness.

Frequent cold which includes allergic cold, viral cold, etc. is a major cause of human discomfort and loss of human hours in the world. Colds being the most common of the ailments that the humanity suffers from, it is called common cold!

Remarks:

Never dangerous per se, common colds cause physical discomfort with annoying symptoms such as running of the nose, blocked nose, throat irritation, fever, congestive headache, etc. with a tendency to develop chest congestion in those who are prone to it. Exposure to cold temperate, cold drinks-food, etc are known to precipitate the cold by lowering the temperature of the respiratory passage, encouraging the virus and bacteria to grow. Viruses of different strains are the major cause. Allergic cold may be due to pollen, dust, hay, etc. It is the body tendency and sensitivity that makes one prone to frequent colds of any nature. In that sense, common cold is not a local disease of the nose but that of the whole system, the immunological system.

Suggestion about homoeopathic treatment:

While treating patients who have frequent colds, homoeopathy looks at it as a constitutional disease that requiring wholesome treatment with an in-depth case study. Homoeopathic treatment is extremely effective to treat frequent attacks of colds in all age groups. Homoeopathy is very strongly suggested for all sorts of colds and coryza.

Lichen Planus, an obstinate skin disorder has baffled not only the patients but also the practitioners equally. The cases of Lichen Planus have been observed all over the world, irrespective of the race, skin color and culture. The medical field today finds little help for this chronic disease. Fortunately, homeopathy, the fast growing alternative medicine has a definite, promising treatment for Lichen Planus.

It is a recurring, chronic, non-allergic, non-infectious, non-contagious disease of the skin, of which the exact cause is not yet fully understood. It has a tendency to relapse after some months or years. Females are more frequently affected as compared to the male counterpart, however, uncommon to find it in children. Over 1.9% of the total population is affected by Lichen Planus.

Signs and symptoms:

The typical appearance of the Lichen Planus eruption : 

Round or irregular shape, raised slightly above the skin level, brown or pinkies or black in color.

The typical textbook description goes : 

Flat-topped shiny polygonal eruptions. Small in size, thickened eruptions, rough and/or oily to touch, dirty look at times. You may find spots either in groups, a few or numerous in number and very often bilateral symmetrical (on both the side of the body, say legs).

Causes:

It is one of those conditions where the exact cause remains unknown till the date. There are theories. In some cases there are obvious links with the facts such as :

1. Contact with certain chemicals (paraphenylenediamine), drugs (Arsenic compounds, certain metals such as Gold, Bismuth, Quinacrine), exposure to light by photography development) etc.

2. Certain modern medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain killers (NSAID), antihypertensive medicines, amalgamated dental filling, etc are known to induce Lichen Planus, which has a tendency to persist despite the discontinuation of the said medicines. 
It may be of interest to list the common modern medicines which are know to induce Lichen Planus:

  • NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)

  • Tetracycline

  •  

  • Propranolol

  • Sulfonamide

  •  

  • Furosemide

  • Chloroquine

  • Penicillamine

  • Methyldopa

  • Enalapril

  •  

Stress

In our in-depth studies, we have observed that certain intense and prolonged emotional stress such as anxiety, shock, traumatic childhood, sadness; disappointment, failure, humiliation, etc. often initiate the process of Lichen Planus. It may be noted that this information is derived from the study at our center and may not be found in the standard dermatological text books.

Genetic
Hereditary tendency
Allergic component

The studies have indicated presence of certain cells, called as HLA A-3 cell markers, suggesting immunological and allergic links.

Diabete

Get Latest Price

Diabetes is a condition when the pancreas in the human body fails to produce insulin. Incidentally, insulin is the hormone that converts the sugar in the food into energy. Insufficient secretion of insulin by pancreas results in excess glucose level in the bloodstream, resulting in diabetes. The blood glucose is required to be used up to provide energy and fuel to the body, in order to do its work. If the level of glucose is high, it eventually affects the body parts.

Cause of Disease

Diabetes mellitus occurs when the pancreas doesn’t make enough or any of the hormone insulin, or when the insulin produced doesn’t work effectively. In diabetes, this causes the level of glucose in the blood to be too high.

In Type1 diabetes the cells in the pancreas that make insulin are destroyed, causing a severe lack of insulin. This is thought to be the result of the body attacking and destroying its own cells in the pancreas known as an autoimmune reaction.

It’s not clear why this happens, but a number of explanations and possible triggers of this reaction have been proposed. These include:

  1. Infection with a specific virus or bacteria;

  2. Exposure to food-borne chemical toxins;

  3. Exposure as a very young infant to cow’s milk, where an as yet unidentified component of this triggers the autoimmune reaction in the body.

However, these are only hypotheses and are by no means proven causes.

Type2 diabetes is believed to develop when:

The receptors on cells in the body that normally respond to the action of insulin fail to be stimulated by it – this is known as insulin may be produced and this over – production exhausts the insulin - manufacturing cells in the pancreas;

  1. There is simply insufficient insulin available;

  2. The insulin that is available may be abnormal and therefore doesn’t work properly.

The following risk factors increase the changes of someone developing Type2 diabetes:

  1. Increasing age, obesity & physical inactivity.

What are the symptoms of Diabetes?

  1. Excessive thirst

  2. Frequent urination

  3. Weight loss

  4. Blurred vision

  5. Increased hunger

  6. Frequent skin, bladder or gum infections

  7. Irritability

  8. Tingling or numbness in hands or feet

  9. Slow to heal wounds

  10. Extreme unexplained fatigue

  11. Sometimes there are no symptoms (type 2 diabetes) who is at greatest risk for developing diabetes?

Who are likely to be affected:

  1. Are 45 or over

  2. Are overweight

  3. Are habitually physically inactive

  4. Have previous been identified as having IFG(impaired fasting glocose) or IGT (impaired glucose tolerance)

  5. Have a family history of diabetes

  6. Have members of certain ethnic groups (including Asian American, African-American, Hispanic-American, and native American)

  7. Have had gestational diabetes or have given birth to a child weighing more than 9 pounds

  8. Have elevated blood pressure

  9. Have an HDL cholesterol level (the ? good ? cholesterol) of 35 mg/dl or lower and/or a triglyceride level of 250 mg/dl or higher

Osteoarthritis is one of the types of arthritis that is caused due to degeneration and eventually loss of the cartilage of joints. Cartilage is a tissue that covers the inside of the joints and acts as a cushion between the two bones forming a joint. When the cartilage starts undergoing degeneration, the bone becomes inflamed as its protective covering is lost. This causes pain during weight bearing activities such as standing, walking, etc.

Causes:

Osteoarthritis occurs commonly as a person ages and it is frequently seen in persons above the age of 55 years though it can also occur earlier than this. Before the age of 45 years, it is more common in males. Genetic predisposition also is one common cause for osteoarthritis. This condition usually affects the weight bearing joints such as the knees and hips; it can also affect other joints such as those of the hands, feet and the spine

When the osteoarthritis is due to ageing process it is known as primary osteoarthritis; when there are other conditions in the background that have triggered this disorder, it is known as Secondary osteoarthritis. Secondary osteoarthritis can be caused by any of the following:

  • Trauma

  • Joint surgery

  • Obesity

  • Congenital anomalies of the joint

  • Gout

  • Diabetes

  • Hormonal disorders (especially Growth hormone disorders)

Symptoms: 

The common symptoms of Osteoarthritis:

  • Pain and stiffness of the affected joint

  • Swelling and warmth of the joint

  • Creaking of the joint

  • Pain is usually worse after repetitive use of the joint

  • Stiffness is usually worse after a long period of inactivity

  • Pain may occur at rest too (in severe cases)

  • Limited mobility of joints

  • Inability to squat

  • Bony enlargement of small joints of fingers (called Heberden’s nodules)

Spine osteoarthritis can cause:

  • Neck pain and stiffness

  • Backache

  • Tingling numbness of extremities.


Self-Care at Home

Lifestyle changes may delay or limit osteoarthritis symptoms.

  • Weight loss: One study suggested that, for women, weight loss may reduce the risk for osteoarthritis in the knee.

  • Exercise: Regular exercise may help to strengthen the muscles and potentially stimulate cartilage growth. Avoid high-impact sports. The following types of exercise are recommended: range of motion, strengthening, and aerobic.

Prevention

No absolute way to prevent osteoarthritis is available. But lifestyle changes may reduce or limit symptoms.

Homeopathic treatment:

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease where the pathological changes in the joint are almost irreversible. Homeopathic medicine can alleviate the pain significantly but cannot cure the disease completely. Most cases respond well as far as the long-term pain relief is concerned. Homeopathic medicines are definitely suggested for osteoarthritis, especially for early cases where the medicines can slow down the degenerative process and offer considerable pain relief.

Piles Treatment

Piles (Hemorrhoids) are swollen and inflamed blood vessels (veins) in the rectum and anus. Piles are broadly classified as follows:
External: Piles that are outside the anal verge
Internal: Piles that occur inside the rectum.

Causes:
These include the following:

  • Genetic predisposition (weak rectal veins, walls)
  • .
  • Poor muscle tone in the rectal region

  • Constipation

  • Obesity

  • Sedentary lifestyle

  • Chronic cough

  • Pregnancy

  • Overuse of laxatives or enemas

  • Lifting heavy weights habitually.


Hemorrhoids are associated with constipation and straining at bowel movements as well as pregnancy. It is thought that these conditions lead to increased pressure in the hemorrhoid veins, thus causing them to swell. Liver disease can also cause increased pressure in the veins and also cause hemorrhoids. 

Hemorrhoids are very common and have been estimated to occur in up to half the population by age 50 years.

Symptoms:

Symptoms vary depending upon the site of piles, duration of complaints and general health of the person.

External piles:

present as a swelling outside the anus with irritation and itching. These can be painful sometimes and usually do not bleed.

Internal piles are usually not painful but these bleed when they are irritated such as during the passage of hard stools. They can be classified into four grades:

  • Grade 1 piles are small swellings on the inside lining of the anus. They cannot be seen or felt from outside the anus.

  • Grade 2 piles are partly pushed out (prolapse) from the anus when you go to the toilet, but quickly 'retract back' inside again.

  • Grade 3 piles hang out (prolapse) from the anus and are felt as one or more small, soft lumps that hang from the anus. However, they can be pushed back inside the anus with a finger.

  • Grade 4 piles permanently hang down from within the anus, and cannot be pushed back inside. They can sometimes become quite large.

  • Some of the other symptoms generally associated with piles are:
  • Protrusion of piles outside the anus; this usually occurs after defecation, prolonged standing or unusual physical exertion

  • Bleeding from the anus: This can occur before, during or after stools. This will be bright red blood, not usually mixed with the stools, but often seen on the toilet paper

  • Soreness, pain, itching in the anal region

  • In case of profuse bleeding that is chronic, the patient may be anaemic

  • Sensation of something coming down, or a bulge or lump at the anus

  • If the piles outside the anus develop a blood clot inside, (thrombosed piles) it leads to a particularly tender, hard lump.

Rheumatoid

Get Latest Price

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. This condition can also affect the tissues surrounding the joints (muscles, tendons, ligaments) as well as other organs of the body (skin, blood vessels, heart, lungs and muscles).

RA is a chronic condition and it tends to last for many years though there are periods in between when the patient is without any symptom. RA is a progressive condition and over a period of time, it causes joint destruction and functional disability.

Causes:

Scientists largely believe that the tendency to develop rheumatoid arthritis may be genetically inherited. It is also suspected that certain infections or factors in the environment might trigger the immune system to attack the body's own tissues (Autoimmune response), resulting in inflammation. In any case, the autoimmune response causes chronic inflammation of the joints, that later progresses to joint destruction. Stress can act a predisposing factor as well as a trigger to induce acute episodes of the condition.

The disease is three times more common in women as compared to men. It afflicts people of all races equally. The disease can begin at any age, but peak incidence is seen between 40 to 60 years of age.

Symptoms:

The course of RA varies from patient to patient. There are stages when the disease is active and this is called a ‘Flare-up’. In between the flare-ups are episodes when the patient is absolutely free from symptoms, such periods are called ‘Remissions’.

Common symptoms during the active stage of RA are as follows:

  • Joint swelling, redness and tenderness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Limited range of motion of joints
  • Deformities of hands and feet (at later stages)
  • Muscular pains
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Usually multiple joints are affected at one time (polyarthritis)
  • Symmetrical affection of joints is common
  • Small joints of hands and feet; elbows, ankles are commonly involved
  • Skin redness or inflammation
  • Round, painless nodules under the skin
  • Inflammation of the lung (pleurisy)
  • Swollen glands
  • Anemia.

Vitiligo

Get Latest Price

Vitiligo also known as leucoderma, which simply means white (leuco) skin (derma), i.e. a disorder where the skin loses its normal coloration. It is also medically known as achromia, which means loss of color.

Basically, Vitiligo can hardly be called as a disease but a skin-disorder that has more social than medical significance, especially amongst the dark skinned people. Due to destruction of the melanin (pigment) cells due to lesser known processes (largely what is called as an auto-immune disorder) the normal skin starts loosing pigments from various parts of the skin, in a varying speed and extent. Our clinical experience based on the treatment of over 4500 cases, suggests that there is a strong genetic factor in the background of most cases, especially those who have extensive vitiligo or those who have vitiligo affecting the finger-tips, toes, lips or the genitals. The indication of strong genetic factor is observed in the form of family history of one or more of the auto-immune diseases such as vitiligo, diabetes, hypothyroid, alopecia areata, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or allergies.

The vitiligo sufferers are observed all over the world, including the white skin communities. However, epidemiologically most cases are recorded in India (8.8%) and Mexico. Estimated 1-2% of the Americans have vitiligo as per the survey made by the American Academy of Dermatology. Males and females are affected equally, inclusive of children age group. It may begin at any age. Childhood vitiligo is not uncommon.

Causes

The exact cause for the pigment disorder remains unknown. However, there are theories suggesting

  • Autoimmune links
  • Hormonal connections
  • Genetic tendencies
  • Neural theories
  • Autocytotoxic theory etc.

There are factors, internal and external, which either predispose or trigger or maintain the process which leads to development of vitiligo.

The familial incidence of 20 to 30% is observed in the family members. If one or more of the parents have vitiligo, there are more chances of one developing the same. However, it is not a rule. At the same time, numerous cases of vitiligo do not have a relevant family history of Vitiligo.

We have made an important observation through a study that most patients with vitiligo has one of the family members (father, mother, grand parents on either side, uncle, aunt or siblings) suffering from one or more of the following diseases:

  • Vitiligo
  • Hypothyroid
  • Diabetes
  • Alopecia areata
  • Cancer
  • Other auto-immune disease.

A study at our center also shows that the patients who have either extensive vitiligo or those developing vitiligo spots on both sides of body (bilateral symmetrical) have a strong genetic element.

Symptoms

The typical appearance of Vitiligo is a milky white de-pigmented spot or spots. It may vary from a single white spot to multiple spots. The shape too is a variable. In some cases generalized de-pigmentation observed all over the body. It has a tendency to start as a single spot and gradually grow in size and number. It may present with a single or several spots on limbs or abdomen or back and then spreading to other parts of the body. Some cases showing affection of the muco-cutaneous junctions such as finger-tips, corners of the mouth, private parts, around eyes. The spread of the disorder is usually slow and progressive. Symmetrical appearance on both the sides of the body (say, on the legs, hands, etc.) is common. In rare cases one finds vitiligo spreading all over the body.
