Homeopathi Remedies For Diarrhea

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Too much fluid is passed (secreted) from the blood-stream into the bowel, for example in gastroenteritis. This is how some laxatives work.

The effects of diarrhea can be especially devastating to infants; for many years the leading cause of infant mortality in the world was dehydration associated with diarrhea. In recent times, however, increasing awareness about and availability of Oral Rehydration Solution has lowered the incidence of death from this cause – with pneumonia becoming the leading cause of mortality.

There are many possible causes of diarrhea, with some of the leading ones being viral infection (an intestinal or stomach flu), bacterial infection (most cases of food poisoning and traveler’s diarrhea), other organisms, foods that upset digestion, food allergies, various medications (including antibiotics), intestinal diseases such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, alcohol abuse, diabetes, cancer, radiation therapy, overuse of laxatives, long-distance running, alimentary canal surgeries, hyperthyroidism, and malabsorption of nutrients – such as lactose intolerance. (The full list for possible diarrheal bases or diagnoses would be very lengthy.)
The bowel moves its contents through too quickly and too little fluid is passed back into the bloodstream. This is one way in which anxiety produces diarrhea. .

More liquid is drunk than the bowel can cope with – this seldom happens, but is one way in which drinking too much beer can cause diarrhea.

Homeopathic Medicines For Migraine

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. However, to make it quicker to find the symptoms related to Migraine, the symptoms experienced by a previous vistor to our homeopathic remedy finder have been grouped, by them, under the name of Migraine.

The typical migraine headache is unilateral, throbbing, and moderate to severe and can be aggravated by physical activity. Not all these features are necessary. The pain may be bilateral at the onset or start on one side and become generalized, and usually it alternates sides from one attack to the next. The onset is usually gradual. The pain may also be associated with – vomiting and nausea; sensitivity to light and sound, fatigue, numbness and tingling.

Natrum muriaticum: Migraines (often on the right) that are worse from grief or emotional upsets, worse from too much sun, or occur just before or after the menstrual period, are likely to respond to this remedy. The headache feels “like a thousand little hammers were knocking on the brain” and is often worse from eyestrain. The person may have numb or tingling feelings in the lips or face before the headache starts, and the eyes are very sensitive to light.

Silicea (also called Silica): Migraines that come on after mental exertion or near the menstrual period may indicate a need for this remedy—especially in a nervous person who is very chilly. Headaches are usually right-sided, starting in the back of the head and extending to the forehead, and are worse from drafts or from going out in the cold without a hat.

Spigelia: Excruciating headaches on the left side of the head, with violent throbbing, or stitching p

Sanguinaria: Right-sided migraines with tension in the neck and shoulder, extending to the forehead with a bursting feeling in the eye, are often relieved with this remedy. Jarring, light, and noise aggravate discomfort. The headaches improve after vomiting, as well as from burping or passing gas, and are often better after sleep. A person who needs this remedy often comes down with migraines after missing meals, and also has digestive problems and allergies.

Sepia: Left-sided migraines with dizziness and nausea, worse from missing meals, and worse near menstrual periods or during menopause, often responds to this remedy. Pain may come in shocks or jerks, and the person feels worse indoors and from lying on the painful side. A person needing Sepia feels weary, cold, and irritable, wanting no one to make demands on them.

Belladonna: Migraines that start in the back of the skull or upper neck and spread to the forehead and temple (especially on the right) may indicate a need for this remedy. Pain is throbbing or pounding, and worse from jarring, light, and noise. Headaches often begin in late morning or afternoon, and may be worst around three p.m. The face may be flushed and red, and the skin feels hot, although the feet and hands are often cold. The pupils may be dilated, with sensitivity to light, and the person may either feel delirious or drowsy.

Homeopathy Has Medicines For Patient Suffering From Malaria

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Intermittent Fever is usually a sign of Malaria but Fever with Shivering and Chill can also be found in Viral Fevers, Urinary Tract Infections, Septecemia.

Homeopathy is a prescientific philosophy-based system of treatment whose central ideas have been long discredited. Preparations are diluted to the point that there is essentially no active ingredients left behind, and so they are literally nothing but sugar pills or placebos. What’s more, there has been extensive clinical studies of homeopathy, most of it useless, but the well-controlled trials show that homeopathy does not work – for anything.

Homeopathy remedies can probably effectively treat a patient with acute symptoms of malaria but inform your physician if you intend to use homeopathic remedies. Do not rely on homeopathic remedies for the prevention of malaria or treatment of severe malaria. Scientific proof on the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies in either preventing or treating malaria is limited.

How To Cure Malaria Using Homeopathic Medicines

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Malaria comes from parasites that are typically transmitted by mosquitoes. It is found generally in subtropical areas like South America and Africa. Each year, malaria strikes around 400 million people worldwide, killing around 3 million of them.

Acute malaria responds well to homeopathic treatment. However chronic malaria, malaria with severe or life threatening complications are more difficult to treat with homeopathic remedies.

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.

Recently homeopathic studies have tried evaluating alternative prevention and treatments of malaria. Artemisin alkaloid is an extract of the shrub Artemisia annua. Several different plant sub-species of Artemisia (Compositae) such as Artemisia abrotanum (Abrotanum), A. maritima (Cina), A. absinthium (Absinthium) are well proven homeopathic remedies. Chinese have used Artemisia annua or “sweet Annie” for more than 2000 years as a potent tea to cure malaria and other fevers.

Homeopathic Medicine for Dental Pain

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Homeopathy is a wonderful support if you have toothache or need to get dental work done. A very dear friend of mine is headed to the dentist today and so I thought I would share with you the advice I sent to him.

Homeopathic Medicines For Dental Ache :

ARNICA: This medicine is good to be taken pre- and post-operatively for tooth extraction or any other dental surgery.

BELLADONNA: When there is rapid onset of throbbing pain that is better by warmth, this medicine is valuable. There is redness and swelling of the gums and a flushed face with hot skin. The children moan, especially when exposed to the air. They tend to have dilated pupils.

CALCAREA CARBONICA: Fear of going to the dentist. Of being examined and weighed by the doctor. Anxiety and fear about germs, contamination, and infection. Anxious about ealth, cancer, heart disease, pain, and mental illness.

COFFEA: A toothache that makes children extremely restless and sleepless suggests this medicine. They receive some relief from cold water, while the pain is aggravated by warm drinks or food.

HEPAR SULPHUR: Tooth pain from the slightest touch and from exposure to cold water, food, or air suggests this medicine. These children are hyper-irritable.

STAPHYSAGRIA: Pain around the surgical incision, in which there is cutting with knife; circumcision, eye surgery, ovarian surgery, abdominal surgery, surgery for urethra/bladder stones; caesarean, childbirth, long drawn-out, painful
birth and exhausting birth.

Homeopathic Remedies For Dengue

Monday, September 17th, 2012

A few homeopathic remedies have been identified to counter dengue based on individualization of symptoms.

For prophylaxis, its important to choose few homeopathic drugs by careful observation that are specific to the epidemic. Such drugs are also termed as the Genus Epidemicus. This GE often varies from one epidemic to another depending on variable factors like season and virulence of infection causing agent. Patients diagnosed with dengue or fevers of other origin can be treated with Homeopathic medicines by strengthening the immune system.

Keeping in mind the common symptoms manifested in dengue viral fevers, the carefully trained eyes of an efficient homeopath earnestly seeks to distinguish the fine ‘individualizing’ symptoms of his patient and the modalities that aggravate or ameliorate his suffering and chooses the remedy that is the closest mirror image of the disease symptoms totality. (Remember Principle of Similars)

How are Homeopathic Medicines Manufactured

All HomeoCare medicines are manufactured using precise pharmaceutical methods in accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, in France’s most modern homeopathic LABORATORY. where state-of-the-art equipment, premium quality of raw material combined with rigor and tradition, exceed the high standards of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

The manufacturing process as well as the raw materials used, are under the control and regulations of the French Ministry of Health and the European Agency of Medication (Agence Européenne du Medicament). This results in the highest quality homeopathic medicines in the world.

Ongoing research conducted in collaboration with France’s INSERM (National Institute of Science and Medical Research), Medical Schools and Hospitals, led HomeoCare’s lab team to the formulation of the most effective homeopathic medicines available today. Homeopathic combination remedies are used for the self-treatment of common ailments and are easily identified since they are clearly labeled for the conditions that they treat. Typically, from 2 to 8 homeopathic remedies are combined in order to cover a broader range of symptoms.

Homeopathic Remedies For Digestive Disorders

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

The digestive tract is critical to the horse’s well-being, and it was poorly designed by the creator, unfortunately. So we are left to help the horse cope with an increasingly artificial diet, stress level and limited exercise. In nature, the horse has a herd, walks 20 hours a day and grazes on rough roughage during that time. The digestive tract functions best in the situation. Modern horse life often consists of processed feeds, confinement many hours a day, a lack of social structure and little exercise. Digestive symptoms from this lifestyle include abnormal stool (too wet or too dry), ulcers, and poor eating habits. Homeopathy offers many remedies to help these horses.

This incident inspired me to write about digestive disorders and how our emotional state can have a huge impact on our digestive health. More importantly, I wanted to convey how homeopathic medicine can be instrumental in healing our emotions as the root cause of our physical ailments.

Homeopathic Medecine :

* Nux Vomica is the classic remedy to use in a colic situation for many different types of colic, from overeating grain or grass to an impaction. It is powerful, but will not cover up serious signs that your veterinarian may need to see. You can give one dose every 15 minutes for an hour. If there are no results, the remedy is not correct or the case is more serious than it seems.

* Colocynthis is a remedy more for a gassy colic, where you can hear loud gut sounds, often without a stethoscope. Your horse may pass gas, or it may be trapped and can be quite painful. The same four doses as mentioned above can be given.

* Aconite is always useful for a colic with a sudden onset, especially if there is cold or windy weather blowing in.

Homeopathic remedies For Cold And Flu

Friday, September 7th, 2012

There are several homeopathic remedies available to combat flu effectively. At the very first sign that flu is developing, take 1/2 tube of Anas barbariae (marketed under various brand names, including Oscillococcinum) every two hours, for a total of five doses. Combination flu remedies work in majority of cases if you take one in the first 4 to 12 hours after you start having symptoms. Follow the dosage recommendations on the label of the remedy you choose. If it’s going to work, you should feel relief with a single dose.

1. Eupatorium perforliatum: Flu with deep pain occurring in the legs or back (“as if the bones would break”) often responds to this remedy. Pain may be felt in the eyeballs, with a heavy sensation in the head. Illness often begins with chills and thirst, followed by high fever. Chills may be felt the back and legs, and the aching in the bones is worse from motion. The person feels “wiped out” and miserable.

2. Apis mellifica: This remedy may be helpful if a person has dry fever that alternates with sweating, facial flushing, and a very sore throat with swollen tonsils. Pain may extend to the ears, and the eyelids may be swollen. Exposure to cool air and cold applications may bring relief. Despite the fever, thirst usually is low. The person can be very irritable, disliking interference.

3. Gelsemium: Symptoms of fatigue and achiness that come on gradually, increasing over several days, may indicate a need for this remedy. The face feels heavy, with droopy eyes and aching. A headache may begin at the back of the neck and skull, and the person may feel chills and heat running up and down the spine. Anxiety, trembling, dizziness, perspiration, and moderate fever are other indications for Gelsemium.

4. Ferrum phosphoricum: This remedy may be helpful during flu with fever, headache, rosy cheeks, and a feeling of weariness. Sensitive eyes, a short hard cough, strong thirst, and vomiting after eating are other indications. This remedy is often helpful in early stages of flu or fever, even if symptoms are not especially clear.

5. Aconitum napellus: A flu that comes on suddenly and intensely—with fever, anxiety, constricted pupils, and strong thirst—is likely to respond to this remedy. The person may feel fearful or agitated, and the fever can alternate with chills. Symptoms are often worst around midnight. Exposure to cold wind or a shock of some kind often precedes the illness.

Homeopathic Medicines For Genital Warts

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

The only topical gel that can be used in treating internal genital warts (inside the vagina or the cervix) is Alpha interferon. This gel is injected inside the vagina using a special applicator twice a day for five days in a row. Then after two days, the treatment is resumed for 5 other days until the warts are killed.

Homeopathic treatment is constitutional treatment. Here the person is treated with his inherent tendencies. The medicines help to enhance the immune system and increase the body’s capacity to heal itself. The medicines not only help to heal the current lesions but also play an important role in controlling the spread, progress and recurrence of the warts. It is the best suited option for long term relief.

A homeopathic treatment for genital warts acts by triggering a response of the immune system against the warts to kill them.

There is in fact a big number of homeopathic treatments for genital warts that work on this principle. They’re mainly made of herbal extracts and other minerals.

One homeopathic treatment for genital warts that is available for purchase online is Wartrol . Its main ingredients are : wild yellow indigo, black sulphide of antimony, potassium hydrate and the extracts of arbor vitae.
