Dengue Patients Should Go For Homeopathic Treatment

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

While cases of dengue are still trickling in, some patients claim to have found the cure to the dreaded disease in homeopathy. Dr Aneeta Singla, a doctor who has a homeopathic clinic in Barewal, said she has treated 50 patients over the last few weeks and has at least three to four patients visiting her daily, most being from Rampura Phul. “As many as 48 of them have responded well to the treatment and only two did not get satisfactory results,” she explained.

“Homeopathy treats every case individually. Every case is studied in isolation of other dengue cases unlike in allopathy, where the treatment for a particular disease is almost similar for all patients,” she added.

What Is Homeopathy Today

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Homeopathy is a sub-system of natural health care in which extreme dilutions of substances from nature are used to stimulate a healing response. The basic principle of homeopathy is that substances that elicit a particular symptom picture in their physical form (for example onion causing itchy watery eyes and a runny nose with discharge that burns) can be used in a diluted form to stimulate the healing of the same set of symptoms.

Homeopathic pharmaceutical companies prepare homeopathic dilutions according to FDA guidelines. Once completed, the diluted substances are called “remedies”.

During the Cholera and Typhus epidemics in Europe from the 1860?s to early 1900?s, people using homeopathy had survival rates 50% or greater than those treated by conventional medicine.

The World Health Organization estimates that homeopathy is used by 500 million people worldwide, making it the second most widely used medicine in the world.

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

At a time when the southern districts are grappling with dengue fever, homoeopathy has come up with a great hope for its prevention. Doctors have started prescribing a medicine that proves to be effective to prevent oneself from dengue attack.

Dengue fever is caused by virus transmitted by a particular type of mosquito. It is a clean water mosquito, black in color with white spots on it and usually stings during the day. Common symptoms are high fever, headache, fever, severe weakness, severe muscle and joint pain. In some cases it may also cause rash on the body. As the disease progresses, platelet count starts dropping. After a certain level, hemorrhage starts, which might bleed the patient to death.

A team of doctors, house-surgeons and pharmacy staff from the college were present at the GRH camp to distribute the pills and explain its power to prevent dengue.

Some Useful Treatment For Dengue Fever are :

Homeopathic treatment is quite effective not only for Dengue fever but also for all other types of fevers. Out of the twelve homeopathic medicines listed above, more commonly used are Aconitum Napellus, Eupatorium Perfoliatum, Gelsemium, Arsenicum Album and Belladonna according to the symptoms but this is not the end.

Causes For Jaundice In a New Born Baby

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Physiological jaundice - This form of jaundice is usually evident on the second or third day of life. It is the most common cause of newborn jaundice and is usually a transient and harmless condition

Maternal – foetal blood group incompatibility (Rh, ABO)-This form of jaundice occurs when there is incompatibility between the blood types of the mother and the fetus. This leads to increased bilirubin levels from the breakdown of the fetus’ red blood cells (haemolysis).

Breast milk jaundice – This form of jaundice occurs in breastfed newborns and usually appears at the end of the first week of life. Certain chemicals in breast milk are thought to be responsible. It is usually a harmless condition that resolves spontaneously. Mothers typically do not have to discontinue breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding jaundice - This form of jaundice occurs when the breastfed newborn does not receive adequate breast milk intake. This may occur because of delayed or insufficient milk production by the mother or because of poor feeding by the newborn. This inadequate intake results in dehydration and fewer bowel movements for the newborn, with subsequent decreased bilirubin excretion from the body.

Homeopathic Treatment For Snoring

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

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.

Otherwise, as in the case of too high a potency (note: in homeopathy, the lower the dosage, the stronger the effect) the body can suffer from severe reactions. Homeopathy is often referred to as a gentle healing method, but that doesn’t mean it should be used carelessly or excessively.

Homeopathic Remedies for Allergic Rhinitis

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Do you suffer from bouts of frequent sneezes, itchy and runny nose? Do you often wake up sneezing in the morning? Does sneezing and runny nose occur during a particular weather or when there is change of weather? Or, do you wheeze or do your eyes feel itchy with sneezing and runny nose? If you have some or all of these symptoms then you may be suffering from nasal allergy.

Here are the list of homeopathic remedies for Allergic Rhinitis :

Euphrasia: This remedy can be helpful if the eyes are swollen and irritated with acrid tears or pus. The nose also runs, but with a blander discharge. Symptoms are often worse in the daytime and worse from warmth, and the eyes may hurt from too much light. The person can also have a cough in the daytime, which improves at night.

Allium cepa: Indications for this remedy include watery eyes and a clear nasal discharge that irritates the upper lip, along with sneezing and a tickling cough. The person usually is thirsty, and feels worse indoors and when rooms are warm, and better in fresh air.

Ferrum phosphoricum: This is a very useful remedy in the early stages of any inflammation. Taken when allergy symptoms start, it often slows or stops an episode. Symptoms include runny eyes with a burning or gritty feeling, facial flushing, watery nose, and short, hard, tickling cough.

Gelsemium: A tired, droopy feeling during allergies with a flushed and heavy-feeling face suggest a need for this remedy. A sensation of dryness or of swollen membranes may be felt inside the nose—or the nose may run with irritating watery discharge, with the person sneezing frequently. Aching in the back of the head and neck, a trembling feeling, and chills along the spine are often seen when a person needs Gelsemium.

Arsenicum album: A burning, watery, runny nose with a stuffy, tickling feeling during allergy attacks suggests a need for this remedy. Swelling below the eyes and a wheezy cough are common. The person may feel chilly, restless, anxious, and is often very tired.
