Homeopathic Treatment For Pimples

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Acne does not just affect teenagers. Acne.org states that 25 percent of adult men and 50 percent of adult women have acne at some point in their adult life. While many harsh chemical-based treatments or painful medical procedures exist for this skin condition, many safe, natural, and effective ways also exist for treating acne.

Antimonium tartaricum: This remedy may be helpful for acne with large pustules that are tender to touch, with bluish-red marks that remain on the skin after active infection has passed. The person may be irritable, with low resistance to illness.

Calcarea carbonica: If a person with frequent pimples and skin eruptions is chilly with clammy hands and feet, easily tired by exertion, and flabby or overweight, this remedy may help improve the skin’s resistance to infection. People who need this remedy are often very anxious when overworked, and have cravings for sweets and eggs.

Silicea (also called Silica): A person with deep-seated acne along with a general low immune resistance, swollen lymph nodes, and a tendency toward fatigue and nervousness may benefit from this remedy. Infected spots are slow to come to a head, and also slow to resolve, so may result in scarring. A person who needs this remedy is generally very chilly, but inclined to sweat at night.

Sulphur: Itching, sore, inflamed eruptions with reddish or dirty-looking skin often indicate a need for Sulphur. Itching may be worse from scratching, and worse from any form of heat—especially bathing or washing. Individuals who need this remedy are often inclined toward convoluted mental notions and tend to give order and neatness a low priority.

Homeopathic Remedies For Diabetes

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Homeopathy sees diabetes as a reflection of the body’s inability to function optimally, an imbalance that results in the body’s incapacity to effectively utilize the insulin that it produces, or to produce sufficient insulin for its needs. According to Alternative Medicine The Definitive Guide: ” Homeopathy is a complete system of natural medicine that can have a therapeutic effect on almost any disease or health condition.”

The metabolic condition of a patient suffering from diabetes requires both therapeutic and nutritional measures to correct the illness. Along with the patient’s strict compliance to a proper diet, homeopathy can regulate sugar metabolism while helping to resolve metabolic disturbances that lead to diabetes. Furthermore, homeopathy helps stimulate the body’s self-healing powers to prevent health conditions related to the illness, such as glaucoma, hardening of the liver, hypertension, depression, atherosclerosis, kidney failure, rheumatic processes, heart disease, etc.

“Homeopathy has been of tremendous value in reversing diseases such as diabetes…” – states George Vithoulkas, Director of the Athenian School of Homeopathic Medicine in Athens, Greece.

Homeopathic Remedies To normal the level of Uric Acid

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Homeopathic medicine has a long history in treating and curing gout. Homeopathic remedies are useful to reduce the swelling and inflammation as well as aid in the healing of the joints. Gout is caused by the build-up of uric acid in the joints, particularly of the hands and feet. The swelling puts pressure on and causes enlargement of the area, which can lead to extreme pain. Many homeopathic remedies reduce the swelling and aid in the digestion of the proteins, which cause the uric acid build-up.

Avoiding the foods that contain these uric acid causing conditions is advised. Red meat, poultry and fish are the main sources. Exercise and drinking plenty of water also helps remove the uric acid from the blood. Chronic gout can lead to arthritis and degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis.

Homeopathic medicine :

Some of the most effective homeopathic medicines vary for high uric acid, gout and kidney stones.

For high uric acid levels, the following medicines are often recommended: Benzoic acid, Pulsatilla, Lycopodium, and Urtica Urens.

For kidney stones: Berberis Vulgaris.

For Gout: Ledum pal, Colchicum, Benzoic Acid, Bryonia and Formica Rufa.

Get Rid If Hair Loss Using Homeopathic Treatment

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Hair loss is one of the commonest problems that mostly people suffer during their lifetime. Hair loss can be due to various causes such as medications or medical treatments like chemotherapy and steroids, autoimmune diseases like SLE and vitiligo, skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis, hormonal factors, starvation, nutrient deficient diet, stress, excessive exposure to sun and genetic factors.

Some of the homeopathic medicines for hair loss are :

Aloe Vera : Condition the hair with aloe vera before shampooing. Use natural aloe vera juice straight from the plant or from a bottle purchased from an herbal store. Massage the aloe vera into the scalp and toward the tips of the hair follicle. Allow the aloe vera to penetrate the scalp for one to three minutes. Rinse the aloe vera from the hair and scalp using tepid water. Follow the aloe vera rinse with a gentle herbal shampoo.

Apple Cider Vinegar : Use apple cider vinegar as a rinse after shampooing the hair. Mix a solution of half apple cider vinegar and half water in the hair. Work the rinse through the hair follicles and into the scalp. Soak the vinegar into the scalp for one to three minutes before rinsing the hair with warm water. Allow the hair to dry for a few minutes before using a comb or brush for styling the hair. Apple cider vinegar helps rid the hair of fungal infections and helps block the excessive production of sebum, which is an oil produced in the sebaceous gland of the scalp. Excessive production of sebum effectively starves growth of hair and leaves flakes that give the appearance of severe dandruff.

Saw Palmetto(extract of the fruit of Serenoa ) : Saw palmetto is an herb that is used to control the production of DHT, the hormone that can cause hair loss. Saw palmetto is available in the form of supplements, shampoos, conditioners and styling aids. Use saw palmetto products as directed on the package label. In addition to controlling the production of DHT in the body, saw palmetto helps to improve the health of the prostate gland in men.

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Knee joint pain is a very common complaint, being not only uncomfortable but causing lot of anxiety. It is often associated with ageing process but no age is immune. To study knee pain, one must be acquainted with anatomy of knee joint.Specific remedies are chosen by matching the indications of a remedy with the symptoms of an individual, sometimes along with psychological factors.

Some improtant homeopathic medicines for Knee pain are :

Osteoarthrosis : This is the form of arthritis characterized by erosion of articular cartilage, either primary or secondary to trauma or other conditions. The articular cartilage becomes soft, frayed, and thinned with eburnation of subchondral bone and outgrowths of marginal osteophytes. It results in pain and loss of function and mainly affects weight-bearing joints. It is more common in older persons.

Ankylosing spondylitis : This is the arthritis of the spine, resembling rheumatoid arthritis that may progress to bony ankylosis with lipping of vertebral margins. This disease is more common in the male often with the rheumatoid factor absent and the HLA antigen present. There is a striking association with the B27 tissue type and the strong familial aggregation suggest an important genetic factor, perhaps inherited as an autosomal dominant, the mechanism, however, remains obscure.

Ferrum phosphoricum: Inflammation, especially in the right shoulder—with pain that extends to the wrist, or sometimes to the neck—may be soothed by this remedy. Gentle motion and cool applications often bring relief. The person’s face may be flushed and pinkish.

Kalmia latifolia : Pain that starts in a higher joint (especially the hip or shoulder), and shoots or travels downward, suggests a need for this remedy. Right shoulder bursitis is common and extends to the elbow, wrist, or hand. Pain and inflammation may come on suddenly, and often shift around. Discomfort is worse from motion, worse at night, and has a neuralgic character.

Rhus toxicodendron : This remedy is helpful to those who experience stiffness and pain on initial movement, gradually improving as motion continues—although too much motion can also aggravate the pain. Pain is often worse during sleep and on waking in the morning. Cold, damp weather can increase the problems, and warm applications and baths bring relief.

Rhus Toxicodendron : According to Dr. Gary Null, author of “Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing,” this remedy is often indicated when pain gets worse at night, and then again in the morning when one awakens. Cold, damp weather may also exacerbate symptoms. Warmth and motion may provide relief. The joints may be hot and painful, with stiffening and swelling when rhus tox is indicated.
