Safe Your Hairs Using Homeopathic Treatment

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

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 Hair Loss, the symptoms experienced by a previous vistor to our homeopathic remedy finder have been grouped, by them, under the name of Hair Loss.

The novel approach of suppressing the autoimmune response with local cortisone (steroid) may work temporarily and is limited to the patch only. Relapses are common and the course still remains unpredictable. It has no long-term advantages and does not alter the nature of the disease.

Typically considered the curse of middle-aged men, hair loss affects approximately two thirds of all women at some point in their lives to varying degrees. For women, hair loss can be devastating.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair from the scalp and elsewhere on the body. The person’s own immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in round, smooth bald patches on the scalp. This condition can progress to complete scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) and/or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).

Homeopathic Remedies For Allergies

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Homeopathy is highly effective in the treatment of allergies and fully capable of stimulating the organism to heal to the point of complete relief from all allergy symptoms.

Homeopaths believe there is an association between allergies, skin problems (such as eczema and hives) and asthma. It is best not to suppress the symptoms of the skin or mucous membranes since that can actually drive the process of irritation further into the system, creating such conditions as asthma or perhaps joint problems. It is always best to start with homeopathic remedies to see if the symptoms improve.

Many of us have suffered from allergies at one time in our life, and usually the best treatment offered was symptomatic relief through avoidance of the allergen or through medication.

Venting clothes dryers outside is important, as is removing damp clothes from the washer quickly so mold does not accumulate. Keeping windows closed during the summer and fall when the allergens are high in the air can be of help. Running a clean air conditioner in the summer months may also help take mold out of the air. A low-fat diet is recommended and avoiding foods that are mucus producing, such as dairy, yeast, and sweets, is important. If the person is allergic to a specific food, that food should also be avoided. Aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided in people who have allergies.

Homeopathic Medecines for Hypertension

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Argentum nitricum: If blood pressure rises with anxiety and nervousness, this remedy may be indicated. “Stage fright” or anticipation of a stressful event can bring on dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and a pounding pulse. People who need this remedy are typically warm-blooded, imaginative, impulsive, claustrophobic, and have strong cravings for sweets and salt.

Aurum metallicum: This remedy is sometimes indicated for serious people, focused on career and accomplishment, with blood pressure problems related to stress. Worry, depression, or anger may occur, especially when these people feel they have made a mistake or failed in some way. A general tendency to feel worse at night, and a strong desire for alcohol, sweets, bread, and pastries are other indications for Aurum

Belladonna: This remedy is indicated when symptoms come on suddenly, with great intensity and heat. The person’s face is flushed, with dilated pupils, and pulsations and throbbing may be felt in various parts of the body. Despite the general heat, the person’s hands and feet may be cold. Vertigo and pounding headaches, worse from jarring and worse from light, may also occur.

Calcarea carbonica: This remedy is often helpful to people with high blood pressure who easily tire and have poor stamina. They are typically responsible types, who feel overwhelmed when ill and fear a breakdown. Palpitations and breathing problems can be worse from walking up a slope or stairs, and also when lying down. A general chilliness with clammy hands and feet (the feet may heat up in bed at night) and sweat on the head during sleep are other indications. The person may have cravings for sweets and eggs, and tend toward weight problems.

Glonoinum: A flushed face with a pounding headache and visible throbbing in the blood vessels of the neck may indicate a need for this remedy. The chest can feel congested or hot, with a pounding or irregular heartbeat. The person is worse from moving around, after heat and sun exposure, and after drinking alcohol. A feeling of “being lost in a familiar place” is a strong indication for this remedy.

Lachesis: A person who needs this remedy typically is intense and talkative, with inner passion and agitation that need an outlet—a “pressure-cooker.” The person may have a strong fear of disease, and feelings of suspicion, revenge, or jealousy are common. The person may also have heart or artery problems, look flushed or purplish, and feel constriction in the chest, with pulsations in many areas. Feeling worse after taking a nap or on waking in the morning, and a strong intolerance of clothing around the neck (or any kind of restriction) are other indications for Lachesis.

Natrum muriaticum: A person who needs this remedy seems reserved and responsible, but may have very strong feelings (of grief, disappointment, anger, lingering grudges, a fear of misfortune) inside. Headaches and palpitations are common, as well as a feeling of tension (even coldness) in the chest. The person feels worse from being in the sun, worse around mid-morning, and better from being alone in a quiet place. A craving for salt and strong thirst can help to confirm the choice of this remedy.

Nux vomica: A person who needs this remedy is usually impatient and driven—easily frustrated, angered, and offended. A strong desire for coffee and other stimulants, sweets, strong foods, and alcohol or drugs may aggravate blood pressure problems. Palpitations, constricting feelings in the chest, constipation, and hemorrhoids are often seen. The person is typically sensitive to light, noise, odors, and interference.

Phosphorus: A person who needs this remedy usually is sensitive, suggestible, and sympathetic, with a tendency toward weakness, dizziness, a “spaced-out” feeling, and fearfulness. Nosebleeds, facial flushing, palpitations, and a feeling of heaviness or pain in the chest, and left-sided problems are often seen. A strong desire for cold drinks and refreshing things, and a marked improvement after eating and sleeping are other indications for Phosphorus.

Plumbum: This remedy is indicated for people with degenerative problems of the nerves and hardening of the arteries. Chest tightness and palpitations are often worse when lying on the left side. Contractures, paralysis, and nerve or muscle problems are also likely. The person may have a history of heavy drinking and “high living”—becoming apathetic or depressed when physical debility and memory problems develop.

Homeopathic Medicines For High Cholesterol

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Homeopathic treatments offer a body-friendly and highly effective natural way to help control blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In combination with healthier eating and exercise habits, they enable you to return to an active and worry-free lifestyle without incurring the dangers of unwanted side effects from conventional medicines.

High blood cholesterol is the excessive level of cholesterol in the blood. When there is a higher than normal amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream, it can cause a condition, known as atherosclerosis, where deposits of fatty material piles-up in the inside wall of an artery and restricts the flow of blood in that portion of the blood vessel. A blockage in the blood vessel that supplies blood to the heart will lead to a heart attack. If the obstruction occurs in the blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain, it will lead to a stroke.

Ideally the remedy should help you with sleep, stress levels including your blood pressure and diabeties. Your work is demanding and you need to get enough rest with a regular lifestyle and appropriate diet.

A consistently high level of “bad” cholesterol in the blood is indicative of an underlying health problem. Rather than fighting to keep your blood cholesterol levels low, you need to address the root cause. This root cause could be a stressful job, depression, anxiety, suppressed anger, or something physical such as chronic pain, inflammation, indigestion or insomnia.

Homeopathic Remedies for Back Pain

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Lumbago or Backache is defined as mild to severe pain or discomfort in the area of the lower back. The pain can be acute (sudden and severe) or chronic if it has lasted more than three months. Lumbago often occurs in younger people whose work involves physical effort and is not uncommon in people of retirement age.

Homeopathic medicine Rhus Tox is one of the top grade remedy for Chronic as well as acute back pain . I would rank it at number one homeopathic medicine for backache if the symptoms agree to it. Rhus Tox is indicated in cases where the backache increases when you start to move and is relieved slowly after moving around.

Choose to use Rhus toxicodendron if your back pain comes on after overexertion, especially lifting something too heavy. The pain is aching and the low back is stiff. It is worse from first motion, yet better from continued motion and hard pressure (such as lying on something hard). You should be restless from the pain, which compels you to move constantly or to frequently change positions.
