Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

Snoring is often associated with diseases such as sleep apnea.

So far, only a few workable homeopathic snoring treatments could be found. There is nothing wrong with such therapies, providing a specialist is contacted and a thorough study of medical history has occurred. Especially if one has decided to take globules, a homeopathic doctor should be consulted – if administered correctly, there are usually no side effects. In the case of self-medication, one should definitely consider the correct potency of each dose.

Some Of The Remedies For Snoring are :

1. 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.

2. 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.

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

4. 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.

Full Definition Of Homeopathy

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

Homeopathy is the use of minute amounts of animal, plant and mineral substances to stimulate the body to heal itself. It is based on the belief that a vital force animates all living things. Sickness is an imbalance in this vital force. Homeopathic remedies are chosen that magnify the current condition within the body. The vital force responds by perceiving the imbalance and restoring the body to health. So, unlike western or allopathic medicine, it is not the medicine that reduces symptoms, but the vital force.

The efficacy of homeopathy rests with matching the specific modalities of the illness or injury with those of the remedy. Generally if the remedy does not work it is because the remedy given did not closely match the symptoms. For this reason homeopathic prescribing involves extensive questioning and observation. Constitutional treatment addresses long-term conditions and should only be undertaken by professionals. Acute treatment refers to situations that arise rapidly and generally resolve on their own – homeopathy can speed their resolution.

Homeopathic Medicines For Swine Flu

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Though several vaccines as well as drugs have been introduced to combat the H1N1 virus, most have met with limited success, some running afoul of even the doctors due to their side-effects. Doctors practising homoeopathy, however, claim that alternative medicine can help prevent and even cure swine flu, and that too without side-effects.

Gelsemium. [Gels]
This remedy corresponds to the commencement of the trouble, when the patient is weak, tired and aches throughout the body. It removes speedily the intense aching and muscular soreness. There is constant chilliness and the patient hugs the fire; the fever is less acute than that of Aconite, and the cough is hard and painful. There are paroxysms of sneezing with excoriating discharge, and great torpor and apathy. Extensive experience with this remedy in the great Epidemic of 1918 proved its usefulness.

Baptisia.
Influenza with marked gastro-intestinal symptoms may need this remedy, especially when there are putrid diarrhoea stools. Clarke considers this remedy the nearest specific for the disease; he prefers the 30th potency.

Sabadilla. [Sabad]
Sneezing is the great keynote of this remedy. Sneezing and lachrymation on going into the open air. The throat is swollen and the pain is worse on empty swallowing; the sneezing is excessive, shaking the whole body. Shudderings, with gooseflesh chills creeping upwards, are also prominent symptoms.

Arsenicum. [Ars]
This remedy covers more phases of flu than perhaps any other remedy. Hughes believes that it will cut short an attack, especially when there is a copious flow, prostration and paroxysmal coryza.

Bryonia.
The trouble here is largely bronchial and going downward. When a person is very grumpy and feels miserable with the flu, wanting only to lie still and be left alone, this remedy is likely to be useful.
