Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Cancer become any age group person may cancer, but nearly all types are more common in middle aged and elderly people than in young people. Skin is the most common type of cancer for both men and women. The next most common type among men is prostate cancer; among women, it is breast cancer. Lung cancer, however, is the leading cause of death from cancer for both men and women . Brain cancer and leukemia are the most common cancers in children and young adults.

The more we can learn about what causes cancer, the more likely we are to find ways to prevent it. Scientists study patterns of cancer in the population to look for factors that affect the risk of developing this disease. In the laboratory, they explore possible causes of cancer and try to determine what actually happens when normal cells become cancerous.

Treatment

Conventional (eg, infection and pain control, electrolyte balancing, abdominal/pleural paracentesis) and homeopathic (ie, administration of homeopathic medicines on pathological indications) supportive measures were also administered.

Homeopathic remedies and treatment for malaria

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Remedies

Once the parasites are within the bloodstream, they multiply and cause anemia, fever, chills, nausea, and in some cases, a coma. Preventative drugs can be taken constantly in high-risk areas to prevent infection. Controlling mosquitoes will help control the chances of getting malaria, but there is no vaccine that provides protection. However, some people believe homeopathy can prevent malaria.

Treatment

The homeopathic remedies for malaria recommended by British homeopaths for travelers to Africa, according to an article in the Daily Mail, are malaria nosode, said to be made from African swamp water containing mosquito skin, larvae and eggs; China Off (made from Cinchona bark which contains quinine); China Sulph (made from quinine) and Natrum Muriaticum (made from salt). Homeopathic remedies are so diluted that often there is none of the original source material in the tiny pills. This is why the remedies are considered controversial. Homeopaths maintain that the efficacy of a remedy is in an energetic imprint of the original substance.

Medicines For Asthma In Homeopathy

Arsenicum album: A person needing this remedy can feel exhausted, yet be very restless and anxious. Breathing problems tend to be worse while lying down, better when sitting up, and may begin, or be the most intense, between midnight and two a.m. Dry wheezing may progress to a cough that brings up frothy whitish fluid. The person can be thirsty, taking frequent tiny sips. General chilliness is usually seen, with burning pains in the chest and heat in the head. Warmth often brings improvement.

Carbo vegetabilis: This remedy may be indicated when a person feels weak or faint with a hollow sensation in the chest. Coughing jags can lead to gagging. The person may be very cold (especially hands and feet), yet feel a need for moving air, wanting to sit beside a fan or open window. Gas and digestive upset are also likely, and sitting up and burping offers some relief. Feeling worse in the evening, and worse from talking, eating, or lying down are other indications for this remedy.

Chamomilla: Asthma with a dry, hard, irritating cough that starts after being exposed to moving air, or after becoming overexcited and angry, may be helped with this remedy. The cough is often worse around nine p.m., and may continue into the night. The person seems hypersensitive and may be extremely irritable and agitated. (Children may even shriek and hit, though they often calm down if someone carries them.)

Ipecacuanha: Coughing spasms that lead to retching or vomiting strongly indicate this remedy. Wheezing can come on suddenly with a feeling of suffocation and heaviness in the chest. Mucus collects in breathing tubes, but the person has difficulty coughing much out. The person may sweat a lot and feel clammy or nauseous, be worse from motion, and sometimes worse from warmth.

Is Homeopathy Safe

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Homeopathic remedies have been regulated in the United States since 1938 and are considered to be safe.

Some critics of homeopathy believe that there is so little active substance in a solution that any benefits from treatment are likely not because of the substance but because you are thinking it is effective (placebo effect).

Supporters of homeopathy believe that although homeopathic solutions are highly diluted, they contain a “memory” of the substance in water. The body recognizes the substance and reacts to it. Studies have tried to determine whether effects from homeopathic treatments are placebo or whether some other action occurs. Although these studies could not identify how homeopathic solutions work, there was evidence that homeopathic dilutions differ from placebos.1

It is important to tell your medical doctor if you decide to use homeopathic remedies. He or she should have full knowledge of your health to help you make wise decisions about where to purchase homeopathic dilutions and what homeopathic practitioner to see. Homeopathic remedies should not replace conventional treatments for serious health concerns.

You can buy some homeopathic medicines at health food stores without a doctor’s prescription. But preparations from different suppliers and practitioners may vary.

Always tell your doctor if you are using an alternative therapy or if you are thinking about combining an alternative therapy with your conventional medical treatment. It may not be safe to forgo your conventional medical treatment and rely only on an alternative therapy.

Homeopathic Remedies For Gas problem

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Actually, before considering homeopathic medicines, it makes sense to sit down and have a heart-to-heart (or stomach-to-per son) talk with your digestive system. See what you can learn. Experiment with whatever changes make sense. Observe yourself.

If this doesn’t bring adequate results or if you would like to know if something (perhaps anything) can help strengthen your system so that you can have your cake (or whatever) and eat it too, here’s when you might consider using homeopathic medicines.

First of all, it is important to say that medical care should be sought if you are having serious digestive pain, if vomiting is excessive, if there is evidence of dehydration, if there is a possibility of poisoning or drug use, if the stools or vomited material is bloody or tarlike, or if vomiting occurs during the course of a viral respiratory condition.

Although homeopathic medicines may also be useful in such situations, it is generally best if these potentially more seri ous conditions be treated by a professional homeopath. Profes sional homeopathic care should also be sought if homeopathic self-care is not effective in treating a person’s more mild symptoms or when these remedies are effective, but the symptoms continually return.

Commonly, professional homeopathic care will not only re lieve the acute symptoms the person is experiencing but will even prevent future similar symptoms. Professional homeopaths pre scribe “constitutional remedies” which are highly individualized to the person’s genetic history, personal health history, and totality of physical symptoms and psychological characteristics. These remedies tend to strengthen the overall health of the person.

Homeopathic Treatment For Acidity

Friday, January 13th, 2012

We start thinking of duodenal or gastric ulcers whenever a patient constantly starts complaining of pain in the stomach after eating. This pain may get better on eating liquid food and inducing vomiting. The area of the stomach may become tender and even slight pressure or touch is unbearable. The vomit may contain blood in later stages.

According to homeopathic philosophy duodenal or gastric ulcers is a lifestyle disease whose main causes are—food with too much spices and oil, having meal at irregular timings, lack of exercise and sedentary habits.

Some patients may complain of bloating and belching of gas. Many may say that the food is lodged in the chest and the digestion process has painfully slowed down. Some patients may complain of chest burn and feeling of uneasiness.

It is advised that the patient should try to figure out the food which makes him worse and then he should avoid them.

One must not drink too much tea, coffee or aerated drinks. Lots of water should be taken all through the day. Consumption of alcohol should be minimal.

The patient who gets angry easily or is highly emotional should start doing yoga which really helps soothe the nerves.

There are 19 homoeopathic medicines which give great relief in duodenal or gastric ulcers. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the homeopath. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus homeopathic remedies of duodenal or gastric ulcers are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same drugs although trade name may be different.

Homeopathic Symptoms and Treatment for Scabies

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Scabies is a skin disease that is quite contagious and is usually characterized by the appearance of bumps on the kin’s surface that are quite itchy. This condition is caused by microscopic mites that usually get under the skin where they will then lay eggs and also leave feces deposited in the places that they will have stayed or passed through. This is what usually causes the bumps, as one will have an allergic reaction to the foreign material on the skin and this will mean that you will have the bumps or even blisters. The disease is able to be treated when it comes to the use of certain prescription medication, but for children and other people whose level of immunity may be low such as pregnant ladies, the use of medication may not be suitable and this is where the homeopathic remedies will come into play.

One such item that you could use is tea tree oil. This substance is said to be quite exceptional when it comes to its use in many of the remedies of the homeopathic nature, as it is an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-parasitic and an antifungal agent. You will not be ingesting this oil orally as it is quite toxic, but rather you will apply it to the skin. Still, you cannot just apply it in the undiluted form as it could burn your skin and thus you will need to mix with it with either almond oil or even olive oil. When you use this for two weeks, a period during which you will be applying the oil onto your body daily, then you will get to note that the itching will have been alleviated and the mites that will be getting into your skim will be killed. Tea tree oil could be used in combination with other substances so as to get the soothing that you need, such as by creating a paste using the turmeric and the diluted tea tree oil and applying it in the affected areas.
