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.

Treatment of Cough by Homeopathy

July 10th, 2014

Dry cough is the body’s natural way of defending against irritants in the throat or air passages. Every person has experienced cough at some point in life. It can be just a reaction to a foreign substance or body in the throat, but it can be a sign of some more serious disease, especially if your cough is persistent and followed by breathing difficulties. There are many causes of dry cough but the most common cause is some kind of respiratory tract infection. Other causes of cough may include gastroesophageal reflux disease and lung cancer. Cough can be an adverse reaction to some medications. Cough can also be triggered by air pollution, exposing to chemicals or smoking. Another cause of cough is choking when there is a blockage in the throat.

To determine the best dose and potency, it is best to get a homeopathic guidebook such as the one listed above as the original source of this information.

There are various homeopathic remedies for dry cough. Belladonna is used for sudden and intense cough which makes your face red and sweaty. Bryonia is used when cold air enters your lungs, which causes painful and dry cough, and dry mouth. Cough caused by asthma or triggered by some stressful situation, especially in hypersensitive people, is treated with chamomile. Aconitum napellus is used in similar situation as chamomile. The difference is that aconitum napellus is given in early stages of asthma or croup. Ferrum phosphoricum is recommended for short and painful cough caused by a respiratory tract infection or an allergy. For sever and intense cough followed by breathing difficulties or even vomiting, ipecacuanha is the best option. This remedy is also good for asthma attacks.

Antimonium tart: A loud rattling cough with an inability to expectorate mucus is characteristic of this medicine. Sometimes precipitated after being angered or annoyed, the respiratory difficulties cause these children to feel drowsy, weak, and feeble. Their symptoms are usually worse at 4 a.m. Their difficulty in breathing may cause them to sit up rather than lie down. Concurrent with these breathing difficulties are anxiousness, restlessness, and irritability. They feel chilly but are averse to stuffy warm rooms. They instead desire cool rooms and open windows. This remedy is rarely given at the beginning of an illness.

Belladonna: When cough symptoms appear suddenly and the child has a dry cough with laryngitis, consider this remedy. These children are restless, drowsy, and have wild dreams. Their symptoms are worse at night.

Homeopathic treatment for snoring

July 7th, 2014

Natural throat sprays and nasal ointments, which tend to open up air passages by using moisture. It is still unknown if these remedies actually decrease snoring.

Regena therapy, based on Regenaplex drugs made of homeopathic substances and aimed at complete cell regeneration. Its effectiveness is debatable.

Grindelia, Lachesis, Carbo Veg or Sulfur for sleep apnea. Due to the constant adjustment of dosages, each patient has to decide for himself whether it is effective or not.

Natural household remedies for snoring consist of different kinds of teas, such as lime-tree blossom, sage or arnica leaves, to be drunk just prior to sleeping.

Homeopathy for Hay Fever

July 3rd, 2014

Hay fever is often seen as a trivial ailment but this annoying and sometimes distressing complaint now affects about 15 to 20% of the population in the UK. With spring on the way, hay fever sufferers need to review their options for treatment. Conventional medications such as antihistamines and topical steroids, although more refined than they once were, can cause unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, and are generally only effective when used regularly.

Male and Female Orgasm

June 25th, 2014

An orgasm (from Greek orgasmós, from orgán – “to swell”, “be lustful”), also known as a sexual climax, is a pleasurable physical, psychological or emotional response to prolonged sexual stimulation It is often accompanied by a notable physiological reaction, such as ejaculation, blushing or spasm and may be followed by aftershocks.

Male orgasm: In a human male orgasm, there are rapid, rhythmic contractions of the prostate, urethra and the muscles at the base of the penis, which (in the adult) typically forces stored semen to be expelled through the penis’ urethral opening, in a process known as peristalsis. This is referred to as ejaculation. The process usually takes from 3 to 10 seconds. The process is usually, but not always, extremely pleasurable. Orgasm is generally induced by direct stimulation of the penis. Some men experience heightened orgasm by direct stimulation of the prostate through the perineum.

Following ejaculation, a refractory period usually occurs during which a man cannot have another orgasm. This period can be anywhere from less than a minute to over half a day, depending on age and other individual factors. A few cases have been reported of men who appear to have no refractory period at all. Scientists theorize that a pituitary gland difference may cause this unique ability.

An orgasm (from Greek orgasmós, from orgán – “to swell”, “be lustful”), also known as a sexual climax, is a pleasurable physical, psychological or emotional response to prolonged sexual stimulation It is often accompanied by a notable physiological reaction, such as ejaculation, blushing or spasm and may be followed by aftershocks.

Female orgasm: In a human female orgasm, orgasm is preceded by moistening of the vaginal walls, and an enlargement of the clitoris due to increased blood flow trapped in the clitoris’s spongy tissue. Some women exhibit a sex flush; a reddening of the skin over much of the body due to increased blood flow to the skin. As a woman comes closer to having orgasm, the clitoris moves inward under the clitoral hood, and the labia minora (minor lips) becomes darker. As orgasm becomes imminent, the vagina decreases in size by about 30% and also becomes congested from engorged soft tissue. The uterus then experiences muscular contractions. A woman experiences full orgasm when her uterus, vagina and pelvic muscles undergo a series of rhythmic contractions. The majority of women consider these contractions to be very pleasurable.

After the orgasm is over, the clitoris re-emerges from under the clitoral hood, and returns to its normal size in less than 10 minutes. Unlike men, women either do not have a refractory period or have a very short one and thus can experience a second orgasm soon after the first; some women can even follow this with additional consecutive orgasms, up to eight have been reported amongst some people; this is known as having multiple orgasms. After the initial orgasm, subsequent climaxes may be stronger or more pleasurable as the stimulation accumulates. Research shows that about 13% of women experience multiple orgasms; a larger number may be able to experience this with the proper stimulation (such as a vibrator) and frame of mind. However, some women’s clitorises are very sensitive after orgasm, making additional stimulation initially painful. It is possible to engage in deep, rapid breaths while continuing stimulation and making a conscious intention to release the pain and tension. Doing this can allow for the intense stimulation to be interpreted not as painful but as intensely pleasurable.

Homeopathic treatment for indigestion and gas

June 23rd, 2014

It is sometimes difficult, literally and figuratively, to stomach the gas, heartburn, and indigestion pains. It hurts, it is discomforting, and it is upsetting that our body’s normally magnificent alchemical process of turning food into energy is having problems.
To some of us, these problems are occasional and to others they are all too common. The good news is that you won’t die from it, but the bad news is that sometimes you feel like you are experiencing a slow and painful death.Although we may want to curse at our digestive tract, the fact of the matter is that our digestive symptoms are actually defenses of the body in its best efforts to defend and heal ourselves.

The symptoms that we experience may not always feel like they are healing us, but these symptoms are our body’s efforts to defend ourselves against poisons in our food, against substances to which we may be allergic, against overdosing on too much food or drink, against the stresses that we experience before, during, or after eating, or simply against unknown fac tors that affect the digestive processes.

Arsenicum album: This remedy may be indicated if a person feels anxious, restless yet exhausted, and is worse from the smell and sight of food. Burning pain is felt in the stomach and esophagus, which often is relieved by warmth and sitting up. Vomiting and diarrhea are possible. Upsets from spoiled food or from eating too much fruit often respond to this remedy.

Bryonia: When this remedy is indicated, the stomach feels heavy, with rising acid and a bitter or sour taste. Pain and nausea are worse from motion of any kind. The person may have a dry mouth and be thirsty for long drinks, which may increase discomfort. Bryonia is strongly suggested if a person is grumpy and wants to stay completely still and not be touched or talked to.

Carbo vegetabilis: Sour belching bringing only small relief, burning pain in the stomach and abdomen, and flatulence after eating may be seen when this remedy is needed. The person feels cold and faint, with a strong desire for fresh or moving air. Digestion may be slow and incomplete, with nausea or cramping.

Colocynthis: Cutting, cramping pain in the stomach and abdomen, with relief from hard pressure or from doubling over, indicates a need for this remedy. A bitter taste in the mouth, a feeling that the intestines are about to burst, or a sensation that stones are grinding together in the abdomen may be present. Indigestion may be worse when the person feels upset, especially after suppressing anger.

Homeopathic Remedies for Acute Diarrhea, Nausea and Vomiting

June 14th, 2014

Acute cases of diarrhea, nausea and vomiting due to a viral or bacterial infection can be effectively treated at home using single homeopathic remedies. Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting caused by overindulgence in food or drink can also be treated homeopathically. Most of the remedies mentioned in this article can be found in a standard Homeopathic First Aid Kit or at your local health food store. They are completely natural, easy to administer, and have no side effects. All the remedies mentioned below should be used in a 30C potency (strength). Look for “30C” written at the end of the given remedy name (e.g. Arsenicum Album 30C).

Arsenicum Album: The first remedy to try in cases of food poisoning or traveler’s diarrhea. There is vomiting and diarrhea. People needing this remedy are weak, chilly, anxious and thirsty.
Nux Vomica: A great remedy for nausea and vomiting, especially after alcoholic drinks or overindulging in food. It’s known as “the hangover remedy.”

Colocynthis: A good remedy for diarrhea anytime there is abdominal pain that is better from pressure and bending double.

Ipecacuanha: Good for persistent nausea, with or without diarrhea, which is not relieved by vomiting.

Podophyllum: Another common diarrhea remedy. The stool is profuse and offensive smelling. The stools may be yellowish or green and are often completely liquid, and the bowel movements can come very frequently.

The remedy can be repeated every half hour for the first few doses, then a few times per day thereafter. Remedy response is very fast in cases of acute diarrhea and vomiting, so if there is no response after waiting a few hours, it means that you have chosen the wrong remedy.
