Is Homeopathy Better Than Allopathy

August 29th, 2014

Homoeopathy is a science of alternative medicine invented by German Physician & Scientist Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843)., rebellious allopath in 1826 in Germany. Master Hahnemann, at peak of frustration , conceived a unique idea which laid foundation of Homeopathy. He gifted the medical world with golden rule of ” Similia Similibus curenture ” which means let likes be cured by likes .By this he meant that a drug cures in the diseased person , what it caused in healthy persons .

The danger in using homeopathy instead of conventional treatment is related to the delay in proper treatment. Cancer for instance does not suddenly pop out of the blue, and stays the same. It grows and spreads around the body as time passes.

Medicines are prepared strictly in a standardised manner by combining medicinal dilution with potentisation.

Serial dilutions reduces quantity of medicines , while simultaneous potentisation raises its efficacy to unbelievable heights . Extreme dilution renders medicines free of side-effects , whereas potentisation render it with million fold efficacy It is paradoxical that despite reduction in medicinal quantity, its curative powers are multiplied due to potentisation. By repeating the process , it achieves phenomenal powers to cure .

Homeopathic Remedies for rashes

August 27th, 2014

Rashes are often caused by contact with an irritating substance (oil from poison oak or ivy plants, ingredients in cleaning products and cosmetics, chemicals in swimming pools or hot tubs, pollutants in the air and water, etc.). Some have viral causes (such as roseola, rubella, measles), and others appear for no apparent reason. If possible, the cause of a rash should be determined and removed. Homeopathic remedies can be useful in many cases, to soothe the itching, inflammation, and discomfort.

Homeopathic Medicines For Rashes

* Bryonia: A bumpy, hot, and dry rash may respond to this remedy. Discomfort may be worse from heat and touch, although applying pressure or lying on the affected side often soothes the itching. If illness accompanies the rash, the person wants to lie completely still and be left alone.

* Graphites: Rashes with eruptions that ooze a sticky golden fluid, then crust over, may be relieved with this remedy. Itching is worse from warmth and worse at night.

* Apis: When a rash is the result of an allergic reaction and takes the form of hives, or if a rash is very pink and swollen with burning or stinging pain, this remedy may be useful. Discomfort and swelling are relieved by cold applications.

Treatment of Allergies

August 18th, 2014

An allergy is defined as an overreaction to usually harmless substance that the immune system determines is harmful, even if it is not. When the immune system is challenged with an allergen (substance which causes an allergic reaction) it becomes sensitized, committing the allergen memory. From that moment forward, the immune system recognizes the allergen and sets up a defense by releasing the chemical into the blood that may cause various symptoms.
Common allergies :
Hay fever – this is a common allergy occurring most often in the spring and summer months when pollen and mold spore counts are highest. Symptoms may include a runny nose, sneezing, and nasal obstruction.
Asthma – this disease affects the respiratory system and can cause repeated episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, tightness of chest, and coughing.
Pet allergy – probably the ,most common pet allergy is to cats, small, invisible flakes of skin known as dander are the culprit of pet allergy, causing itching watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing.
Dust mite allergy – these microscopic organisms thrive in warm humid areas such as mattresses, carpet, and upholstery; they may create allergy symptoms like wheezing, a runny nose, or watery eyes.
Food allergy – A food allergy is an immune system response to a food that the human body has mistakenly identified as a harmful substance. Once the immune system decides that a particular is harmful to the body, it creates specific antibodies (immunoglobulin E) to defy the perceived enemy. Because of the perceived invasion, the immune system releases massive amounts of chemicals, including histamine, to protect the body. These chemical trigger a surge of symptoms that can affect the skin, respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, or cardiovascular system.
The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat allergy but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available in allergy treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. There are following remedies which are helpful in allergy treatment:
Allergic asthma – Allium Cepa, Arsenic Album, Iodium, Thuja, Arsenic Iod, Dulcamara, Naja, Natrum Sulph, Sabadilla, Carbo Veg, Nux Vomica.
Anaphylaxis – Apis Mel, Arsenic Album, Arsenic Iod, Carbolic Acid, Causticum, Histamine, Ledum Pal, Natrum Mur, Psorinum, Rhus Tox, Sulphur, Urtica Urens.
Allergic rhinitis – Allium Cepa, Euphrasia, Sabadilla, Arsenic album, Carbo Veg, Nux Vomica, Natrum Mur, Arsenic Iod, Iodium, Kali Iod, Pulsatilla, Silicea, Sanguinaria.

Homeopathic Treatment For Ear Treatment

August 6th, 2014

Glue ear is a condition that is very common in young children and infants. Approximately four in five children will have had the condition by the age of 5. The medical term for glue ear is otitis media with effusion. This condition is generally caused by repeated middle ear infections resulting in an accumulation of sticky fluid behind the ear drum.

A different kind of ear infection (otitis externa) affects the outer ear and the sensitive skin inside the ear canal; it often starts with a scratch that gets infected by bacteria or fungus (swimmer’s ear), becoming swollen, inflamed, and very painful.

The child may also have problems with speech and language. Homeopathic remedies can be given safely and effectively to young children to treat glue ear. Conventional treatment involves antibiotics, steroids and in some cases surgery. Repeated use of antibiotics in young children can compromise natural immune function, and lead to more infections! It is therefore advisable to consider homeopathy and other natural treatments such as cranial osteopathy.

Homeopathic Medecine :

* Aconitum napellus:This remedy is indicated if an earache comes on suddenly with cutting, throbbing pain—often after exposure to cold and wind, or after a shaking experience. The person usually is fearful, agitated, and restless. Fever may be high and thirst is strong. Symptoms are often worse near midnight, and can even wake the person up.

* Merc Sol : is a homeopathic remedy that is commonly prescribed for infections. This natural remedy is indicated for ear discharge that is smelly and thick. The child may also have a lot of saliva during sleep.

* Calc Carb : should be given if the discharge from the ear, and the glands are swollen. The Calc Carb child is generally chubby and sweats from the head at night.

* Belladonna: Intense bouts of earache that come and go very suddenly, with heat and inflammation, suggest a need for this remedy. Pain can be pounding or throbbing, and may be worse from jarring. The person usually has a fever, a flushed red face, eyes that are sensitive to light, and skin that is hot to touch. The right ear is most often affected. A child needing Belladonna may feel drowsy with the fever, or be restless and have nightmares.

Homeopathic Medicine for weight loss

July 29th, 2014

Homeopathic remedies may be helpful for stimulating weight loss in certain individuals. Homeopathic remedies are diluted filtrations of a substance that produces similar symptoms when administered at full strength to those symptoms exhibited by conditions found in overweight individuals, such as thyroid dysfunction.

Homeopathy not only helps you in losing weight but it improves your metabolic system, digestive system and elementary system. But the medicines need to be individually prescribed, based on your own unique pattern of symptoms.

Homeopathic Remedies For Weight Loss are :

Fucus Vesicelosus
Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, may be helpful in treating thyroid conditions and promote weight loss, according to the “Materia Medica of Homeopathic Medicines.” Fucus in its natural form, is high in iodine. As a homeopathic dilution, the iodine content is negligible; however, the potentized remedy has the ability to stimulate the thyroid into producing and synthesizing more thyroid hormone. This action on the thyroid revs up the metabolism allowing for weight loss.

Calcarea carb
Calcarea carb is used to control excessive perspiration. It is also helpful for those who become hungry soon after eating.

Cinchona
Cinchona off is used specially for obesity treatment to reduce gluttonous appetite; indigestion after taking raw fruits and vegetables. Basically, it is used for those people who are internally very weak but obese.

Antimonium Crudum
Antimonium crudum may assist in raising the metabolism and increasing digestion and elimination, according to Holistic Online. This remedy is indicated for symptoms arising from sluggish digestion and assimilation of food, similar to that found in many patients suffering from a slower metabolism. The individual needing Antimonium crudum may have bouts of indigestion with bloating, belching and gas accompanied by a white, heavily coated tongue. A homeopath should be consulted for proper dosing and treatment guidelines.

Staphysagria
Staphysagria is applied if you tend to eat out of repressed anger. Your weight gain problem may be compounded by oppressive, even abusive, relationships in your life.

Homeopathic Remedies for Nasal Allergies

July 23rd, 2014

As a person who has suffered with asthma, allergies, and frequent sinus infections for most of my life, I’ve tried nearly every treatment that is available. Over the years, I’ve found that certain homeopathic remedies are far more effective in treating allergies and sinus problems than most prescribed medications.

Although the tendency to develop allergy lies in the body itself (all allergies have a strong genetic angle linked to them), seasonal allergies develop either due to pollens or as a reaction to mold spores .A very promising way of treating this allergy is with Homeopathic medicines .Homeopathy, Not only does it give relief, it also helps in eliminating the disease from the body. Although homeopathic treatment at times can be slightly lengthy but it gives a very lasting cure and does not produce any side-effect like drowsiness and sleepiness.

You must first start by taking care of yourself from the inside out. This means that you should always eat right and exercise. Try to get at least 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables each and every day. Eat plenty of fiber rich foods and stay away from refined sugars and starches. Exercise at least 3 times per week. Taking care of your body in these ways will boost your immune system and help your body to fight off any infections that may develop.

The patient may have to wake up in the middle of the night due to sudden sneezing and dripping. Early morning attacks of sneezing are a very common feature of this kind of allergy. Fatigue may also be present in some patients.

If you have a sinus infection, and not just sinus congestion, you can add one teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to the salt water mixture. The addition of the peroxide will kill the bacteria lurking in your sinuses and after using this technique for a few days, you will completely kill the sinus infection and avoid having to make a trip to the doctor to get antibiotics.

Homeopathic treatment of Addison’s disease

July 21st, 2014

Addison’s disease is potentially a life threatening condition in which the outer layer of the adrenal glands (the adrenal cortex) insidiously slows production of corticosteroids hormones. The disease usually occurs when the adrenal cortex is damaged or destroyed as a result of autoimmune disorder, in which immune system mistakenly attacks the adrenal glands. In very rare cases tuberculosis can cause Addison’s disease. Adrenal glands are located just above the kidneys; they are part of a system known as endocrine system. The outer part of adrenal gland or cortex is responsible for the production for making three main hormones – mineralo corticoid, Glucocorticoid, and sex hormones. Glucocorticoids such as cortisol regulates the energy need of our body, stress response, and immune function. Mineralocorticoid, such as Aldosterone, regulates the sodium and potassium balance in our body. Mineralo corticoids and Glucocorticoids also help in the regulation or control blood pressure. Sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone are responsible for the development of sexual characters in the body. In Addison’s disease, damage to adrenal cortex causes decrease or insufficient production of these hormones, particularly cortisol and Aldosterone.
Sign and symptoms mainly involve
• Extreme fatigue
• Significant appetite loss
• Malaise
• Depression
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Muscular weakness
• Dizziness
• Anemia
The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat Addison’s disease but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to treat Addison’s disease that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. There are following remedies which are helpful in the treatment of Addison’s disease:
Adrenalin, arsenic album, phosphorous, Calcaria Ars, Iodum, Sepia, Silicea, Natrum Mur, Calcaria Carb, Argentum Nitricum, Sulphur, Belladonna, Tuberculinum, Nitric Acid, Kali Carb, Ars Iod and few other remedies.

Homeopathic Medicines for urinary infection

July 16th, 2014

Homeopathic Medicines :

Aconitum apellus: This remedy is often useful when a person feels anxious both before and during urination, with hot, scanty urine, and a burning or spasmodic feeling in the outlet of the bladder. It can also be helpful if retention of urine occurs after a person has been very cold and chilled, or after a shaking experience.

Apis mellifica: This remedy is indicated when the person frequently needs to urinate, but only small quantities are passed. Stinging and burning sensations are felt (especially with the last few drops) and the person may also experience soreness in the abdomen. Heat and touch make the symptoms worse, and cold applications, cool bathing, and open air bring relief. A lack of thirst is another indication that Apis may be needed.

Belladonna: This remedy may be beneficial if urging to urinate is frequent and intense, and the bladder feels very sensitive. A cramping or writhing sensation may be felt in the bladder area. Small amounts of highly-colored urine pass. (This remedy is sometimes helpful if a person passes small amounts of blood and no serious cause can be found on medical examination.)

Berberis vulgaris: Cystitis with twinges of cutting pain, or a burning feeling that extends to the urethra and its opening, may indicate a need for this remedy. The passage may also burn at times when no attempt at urination is being made. After emptying the bladder, the person feels as if some urine still remains inside. Urging and discomfort are often worse from walking.

Cantharis: Strong urging to urinate—with cutting pains that are felt before the urine passes, as well as during and after—may indicate a need for this remedy. Only several drops pass at a time, with a scalding sensation. The person may feel as if the bladder has not been emptied, still feeling a constant urge to urinate.

Borax: This remedy can be helpful for cystitis with smarting pain in the urinary opening and aching in the bladder, with a feeling that the urine is retained. Children may cry or shriek, afraid to urinate because they know the pain is coming. Borax is often indicated for people who are sensitive to noise and inclined toward motion sickness.

Chimaphila umbellata: If a person has a troublesome urge to urinate but has to strain (or even stand up and lean forward) to make it pass, this remedy may be useful. A scalding sensation may be felt while the urine flows, with a feeling of straining afterward.

Clematis: This remedy may be indicated if a person has to urinate frequently with only a small amount being passed. A feeling of constriction is felt in the urinary passage, and the flow may be interrupted, or there may be dribbling afterward. A tingling sensation may occur, lasting long after urination is finished.

Equisetum: If cystitis is accompanied by dull but distressing pain and a feeling of fullness in the bladder, even after urinating, this remedy may be helpful. Urging and discomfort are more intense when the bladder has recently been emptied, improving over time as the bladder become more full.
