Homeopathic treatment of Addison’s disease

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Addison’s disease is potentially a life threatening condition in which the outer layer of the adrenal glands (the adrenal cortex) insidiously slows production of corticosteroids hormones. The disease usually occurs when the adrenal cortex is damaged or destroyed as a result of autoimmune disorder, in which immune system mistakenly attacks the adrenal glands. In very rare cases tuberculosis can cause Addison’s disease. Adrenal glands are located just above the kidneys; they are part of a system known as endocrine system. The outer part of adrenal gland or cortex is responsible for the production for making three main hormones – mineralo corticoid, Glucocorticoid, and sex hormones. Glucocorticoids such as cortisol regulates the energy need of our body, stress response, and immune function. Mineralocorticoid, such as Aldosterone, regulates the sodium and potassium balance in our body. Mineralo corticoids and Glucocorticoids also help in the regulation or control blood pressure. Sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone are responsible for the development of sexual characters in the body. In Addison’s disease, damage to adrenal cortex causes decrease or insufficient production of these hormones, particularly cortisol and Aldosterone.

Remedies for Acute promylocytic leukemia

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Acute promylocytic leukemia is a biologically distinct form of acute myeloid leukemia that is characterized by a translocation between chromosomes 15 and 17. This results in a fusion protein between the genes encoding the retinoic acid receptor and the transcription factor promylocytic leukemia, which halts myeloid cell development at the promylocytic stage. These cells are commonly filled with granules, and auer rods are common microscopically, release of granules is clinically important, as they may cause disseminated intravascular coagulation in a patient who is already pancytopenic. Usually the first symptoms of acute promylocytic leukemia are consequences of bleeding diathesis. Hemorrhages of the skin and mucosa prompt physicians to perform a hemogram. Sometimes severe hemorrhage leads to early death. Usually, no tumor, bone pain, adenopathy, or splenomegaly or hepatomegaly are recorded. Patients with acute promylocytic leukemia share many of the symptoms of acute non-lymphocytic leukemia, such as pallor, fatigue, weakness, palpitations, dyspnea on exertion, and fever.

Excessive peristaltic contraction of the esophagus (nutcracker esophagus) and diffuse esophageal spasm are usually associated with pain, although Dysphagia may be a feature. More commonly Dysphagia occurs because of uncoordinated or hypotensive esophageal contraction. The most well defined example of such abnormalities would be achalasia of the cardia.
Achalasia, literally ‘failure to relax’, is characterized by uncoordinated, non-progressive contraction within the esophageal body. In addition the LOS fails to relax on swallowing, and is usually hypertensive at rest.
Achalasia presents with Dysphagia as the primary symptom. As the disease progresses the esophagus dilates proximal to the obstructing LOS, and can harbor large volumes of food, which may be regurgitated or even aspirated if it doesn’t pass distally. Patients often lose weight as the symptoms progress. Dysphagia in Achalasia is variable and can occur to solids and liquids. Patients may be able to assist esophageal emptying by employing manoeuvres such as straightening up or lifting their arms.
