Food Related Anxiety of Calcium Carbonate

December 16th, 2014

Calcium Carbonate otherwise known as or Cal Carb, Calcium Carbonate, Oyster Shell, Mother of Pearl or Carbonate of Limeis is the mineral that all sea shells are made of, and is not too different from the calcium in human bones. The homeopathic remedy is made only from Oyster shell with the mother-of-pearl removed. They are then triturated with lactose sugar and what remains after the thorough and very careful preparation is calc carb.

Its chief action is cantered in the vegetative sphere, impaired nutrition being the keynote of its action. It is very often used to treat the symptoms of depression and hypothyroidism.

The profile of the Calc Carb person will be the shy and sensitive type. These people are rather contemplative in nature but have an easily agitated side to them. They will become excitable in the face of cruelty as they have no tolerance for it. They tend to be forgetful in nature and often lack energy, and may even come across as clumsy. They rely on security quite heavily throughout their daily lives.

Calcarea Carbonica is indicated for people who suffer from anxiety and phobias. The following symptom are often treated with the remedy fear of failure, restlessness, anxiety, night sweats, obsessive or compulsive behaviour or related feelings and emotions, acute or chronic disturbances in sleep, forgetfulness, confusion, low-spirit.They tend to be worry warts and need constant reassurance and often drive their close friends and family to distraction by talking too much about their problems and concerns.

When ill they can become extremely lethargic and tend to self pity. The smallest exertion can leave them weak often close to collapse. They cannot stand the cold but if they overheat just a little it enervates them to the point that they must rest.

Calcarea Carbonica can be taken whenever there is a lack of Calcium in the body and one of the chief indications is Discharges that smell sour.

Homepathic treatment for Acne

December 13th, 2014

Acne is an inflammation of the skin in which the secreted sebum gets collected in the pores of the skin and gets trapped there. That causes the skin to elevate in the form of a breakout. It may or may bot have a head. If its acne, it will most likely have a white head and is painful to touch. If its a pimple, it is not painful unless it is too severe. Pimple is also a form of acne. Any breakout on the skin can be termed as acne and then, acne is classified into various categories depending on its size and severity.

Pimples are generally milder than a full-blown acne attack. But, the reason for both the skin conditions is same – clogged pores. And, why are they common in oily skin types? Because, the skin secretes more sebum and is more likely to have deposits of sebum on the skin. So, keeping the skin clean is one of the carnal rules of skin care. If you find that your skin suffers regularly from breakouts, you should consult a dermatologist and use prescription products as they have chemicals which are better at cleaning the pores and keeping them unclogged.

Salicylic Acid is one of the common ingredients of such products. And, many people use aspirin tablets at home in their DIY’s. I would like to reiterate the fact that only 2% concentration of salicylic acid is advisable for the skin at max so if you are one of the people who uses full dosage of aspirin for face, please refrain from doing that. You are damaging your skin instead of helping it. Do not do it further, as homeopathy treatment can prevent this kind of diseases. Homeopathy offers natural, effective remedies to treat acne. The main goal of the treatment is to control new lesions from forming, heal existing lesions, minimize the psychological embarrassment and stress and prevent scarring.

Ten Common Homeopathic Medicines

December 12th, 2014

If you wish to experiment with homeopathic medicines, here are ten medicines that are used for common ailments.

These medicines should be taken in the 6th or 30th potency. Generally, if there is minor pain or discomfort, you should take the medicine three times a day, stopping once health has been restored. If there is more severe the pain, you can consider taking the medicine every one to three hours, decreasing the doses as symptoms are reduced. If you do not observe some improvement after 24 hours in an acute condition, the medicine is probably not the correct one. If symptoms persist, consider another medicine or seek professional homeopathic care.

It is generally recommended that people treat themselves for non-threatening acute conditions only and obtain professional care for chronic or potential dangerous health conditions. Dr. Stephen Cummings and Dana Ullman’s Everybody’s Guide to Homeopathic Medicines (Tarcher/Putnam, 2004) provides detailed protocols for helping to determine when symptoms are beyond self-care.

Allium cepa (onion): Because it is known to cause tearing of the eyes and dripping of the nose, it is a frequent remedy for the common cold and hay fever, especially when there is a thin, watery, and burning nasal discharge that irritates the nostrils. Typically, the person’s symptoms are worse in a warm room and are relieved in a cool room or in the open air.

Arnica (mountain daisy): This is the #1 remedy in sports medicine and first aid. It is used for shock and trauma from injury. It also helps to reduce pain from injury and to speed the healing process. Whether you’re into competitive sports or exercise regularly or if you simply don’t like to feel the pain of an injury, Arnica is the place to start.

Chamomilla (chamomille): Many parents owe their sleep to homeopathy, not because it helps them directly, but because it is so good for their infant. Chamomilla is THE remedy for the irritable infant, especially from teething or colic. The infant cries incessantly, and nothing seems to provide any relief, except carrying them, and even then, the crying begins recurs as soon as the parent puts the child down.

Hypericum (St. John’s wort): This remedy is the first medicine to consider for injuries to the nerves or to parts of the body rich with them, including the fingers, toes, and back. Any injury with shooting pains should be given this remedy.

Ignatia (St. Ignatius bean): One day this remedy will be used by the majority of psychiatrists. It is one of the leading homeopathic medicines for acute grief, anxiety, and depression, especially after a death or separation from a loved one. The person sighs frequently, has a lump in the throat, and may tremble.

Magnesia phosphorica (phosphate of magnesia): This is the most effective remedy for cramps, including menstrual cramps. It has helped prevent many women turn from Dr. Jekkyl into Ms. Hyde as a result of menstrual cramps. It is particularly indicated when a woman’s cramps cause her to bend over and when they experience some relief from warm applications.

Nux vomica (poison nut): This is the premier medicine for ailments exacerbated by conventional or recreational drugs. It is also a common remedy for treating symptoms of overeating or from drinking too much alcohol. Considering how many people have these vices, this is an all too frequent medicine today.

Pulsatilla (windflower): Perhaps the most commommon remedy given to both children and women, this medicine is not indicated for a specific disease but for a specific pattern of physical symptoms and psychological characteristics. Physically, these people are warm-blooded: they wear less clothes than others, prefer open air, and don’t feel as well in the heat. Psychologically, they are a gentle, mind, and yielding person, with a quickly changing emotional state and a strong tendency to want to please others.

Rhus tox (poison ivy): This medicine is the most common remedy for sprains and strains. It is especially indicated when a person experiences a “rusty gate” syndrome, that is, pain on initial motion which is reduced the more the person continues to move. It is also often given to people with the flu or arthritis who experience this similar rusty gate syndrome.

Difference between Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda

December 9th, 2014
There are basically three types of methodology to treat a disease. Homeopathy, Allopathy and Ayurveda. All of these methodologies have a common goal which is to cure the disease. Each one has different origin and different way of treatment. In the present article we are going to differentiate these three methodologies their origin and the way of treatment used by them.
Homeopathy:
The word homeopathy is basically derived from the Greek word “homoios” which means like and “pathos” which means suffering. Which means like cures like or we can say that the substance which is responsible for a particular disease in healthy people is used to cure that disease. Homeopathy medicines are highly dependent on individuality. Two persons having same disease are treated differently means the medicine is different for both in homeopathy. The medicine is given on the basis of how different peoples react to same kind of disease. So, everyone has a different reaction to same disease and hence is treated with different medicines.
Homeopathy helps the body to heal itself by improvising its immune system. The medicine given to an individual depends on his behavior and his susceptibility to a particular type of disease. The treatment in homeopathy takes a long period of time. So it can’t be used in emergency case. One good thing about homeopathy is that this methodology has no side effects if the treatment is going under the supervision.
Allopathy:
Allopathy is basically a part of western medical system and is spread all over the world. Its network is very wide. It is adopted by almost all of the countries around the world. Allopathy is drug oriented methodology. Allopathy mainly depends on three things hypothesis, experimentation and the outcome of the experiment. This methodology basically depends on experimentation. In this doctors treat a disease based on symptoms not on the causes. The pill given to the patient depends on the outcome of the experiment. Suppose one got viral then his blood is tested to check the type of viral. Depending on the output of the blood test the pill is given. So we can say that in allopathy there is a pill for a particular disease. There is no place for individuality in allopathy because the same pill is given to all the patients having same kind of disease.
The effectiveness of allopathy in emergency is the main reason why people around the world adopted allopathy. Most of the drugs given in allopathy have side effects. The pill given for a disease is curing that particular disease and also giving birth to another disease in the body. So allopathy has this drawback of side effects of pills. For example the person who has fever is given paracetamol tablet which is responsible to bring down the body temperature to normal condition but on the other hand it is harmful for our lever. The side effects can be internal or external. Once your disease is cured then you have to take pill for the side effects caused due the pills used consumed for the treatment. And then while curing these side effects another one occurs. So a chain of side effects is created due to the pills given in allopathic treatment. So this is the area of concern in allopathic treatment.
Ayurveda:
Ayurveda is ancient medical science of india. It is called as the mother of eastern medical science. According to ayurveda there are three types of elemental energies in human body and a disease is caused due to imbalance of any of these three energies called doshas. The three doshas are
1).           Vata (air or wind)
2).           Pitta (fire or bile)
3).           Kapha (earth or bodily fluids or phlegm or mucous)
All the above faults or doshas are called tridoshas in ayurveda. The imbalance of any of these doshas in our body causes the disease. There are list of disease in ayurveda caused due to imbalance of one particular dosha.  Ayurveda depends on the hierarchical structure rather than experimentation in allopathy. The physician in ayurveda does their own experimentation to identify the disease. Every physician in ayurveda has different remedy for a same kind of disease. Ayurveda depends on the medicinal plants for treating a disease. It uses the matter in their natural form. When compared with allopathy, ayurveda has very low count in terms of side effects which merely occurs due to the lack of knowledge of the physician. Now a day’s people are adopting ayurveda due to its low count of side effects.

Save Your Hair Using Homeopathy

December 2nd, 2014

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. However, to make it quicker to find the symptoms related to Hair Loss, the symptoms experienced by a previous vistor to our homeopathic remedy finder have been grouped, by them, under the name of Hair Loss.

The novel approach of suppressing the autoimmune response with local cortisone (steroid) may work temporarily and is limited to the patch only. Relapses are common and the course still remains unpredictable. It has no long-term advantages and does not alter the nature of the disease.

Typically considered the curse of middle-aged men, hair loss affects approximately two thirds of all women at some point in their lives to varying degrees. For women, hair loss can be devastating.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair from the scalp and elsewhere on the body. The person’s own immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in round, smooth bald patches on the scalp. This condition can progress to complete scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) and/or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).

Treatment of Low Blood Pressure, Hypotension

Conventional Treatment

Low blood pressure in healthy subjects without symptoms or organ damage needs no treatment. All patients with symptoms possibly due to low blood pressure should be evaluated by a doctor. The doctor needs to identify the cause of the low blood pressure since treatment will depend on the cause.

• Dehydration is treated with fluids and minerals (electrolytes). Mild dehydration without nausea and vomiting can be treated with oral fluids and electrolytes. Moderate to severe dehydration usually is treated with intravenous fluids and electrolytes.

• Blood loss can be treated with intravenous fluids and blood transfusions. If bleeding is continuing, it needs to be treated as well.

• Septicemia is treated with intravenous fluids and antibiotics or other medicines.

• Blood pressure medications or diuretics are adjusted, changed, or stopped by the doctor if they are causing low blood pressure symptoms.

• Tachycardia is treated depending on the nature of the tachycardia. Atrial fibrillation can be treated with oral medications, electrical cardioversion, or a catheterization procedure called pulmonary vein isolation. Ventricular tachycardia can be controlled with medications or with an implantable defibrillator.
