Homeopathic Medicine for weight loss

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Homeopathic remedies may be helpful for stimulating weight loss in certain individuals. Homeopathic remedies are diluted filtrations of a substance that produces similar symptoms when administered at full strength to those symptoms exhibited by conditions found in overweight individuals, such as thyroid dysfunction.

Homeopathy not only helps you in losing weight but it improves your metabolic system, digestive system and elementary system. But the medicines need to be individually prescribed, based on your own unique pattern of symptoms.

Homeopathic Remedies For Weight Loss are :

Fucus Vesicelosus
Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, may be helpful in treating thyroid conditions and promote weight loss, according to the “Materia Medica of Homeopathic Medicines.” Fucus in its natural form, is high in iodine. As a homeopathic dilution, the iodine content is negligible; however, the potentized remedy has the ability to stimulate the thyroid into producing and synthesizing more thyroid hormone. This action on the thyroid revs up the metabolism allowing for weight loss.

Calcarea carb
Calcarea carb is used to control excessive perspiration. It is also helpful for those who become hungry soon after eating.

Cinchona
Cinchona off is used specially for obesity treatment to reduce gluttonous appetite; indigestion after taking raw fruits and vegetables. Basically, it is used for those people who are internally very weak but obese.

Antimonium Crudum
Antimonium crudum may assist in raising the metabolism and increasing digestion and elimination, according to Holistic Online. This remedy is indicated for symptoms arising from sluggish digestion and assimilation of food, similar to that found in many patients suffering from a slower metabolism. The individual needing Antimonium crudum may have bouts of indigestion with bloating, belching and gas accompanied by a white, heavily coated tongue. A homeopath should be consulted for proper dosing and treatment guidelines.

Staphysagria
Staphysagria is applied if you tend to eat out of repressed anger. Your weight gain problem may be compounded by oppressive, even abusive, relationships in your life.

Homeopathic Remedies for Nasal Allergies

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

As a person who has suffered with asthma, allergies, and frequent sinus infections for most of my life, I’ve tried nearly every treatment that is available. Over the years, I’ve found that certain homeopathic remedies are far more effective in treating allergies and sinus problems than most prescribed medications.

Although the tendency to develop allergy lies in the body itself (all allergies have a strong genetic angle linked to them), seasonal allergies develop either due to pollens or as a reaction to mold spores .A very promising way of treating this allergy is with Homeopathic medicines .Homeopathy, Not only does it give relief, it also helps in eliminating the disease from the body. Although homeopathic treatment at times can be slightly lengthy but it gives a very lasting cure and does not produce any side-effect like drowsiness and sleepiness.

You must first start by taking care of yourself from the inside out. This means that you should always eat right and exercise. Try to get at least 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables each and every day. Eat plenty of fiber rich foods and stay away from refined sugars and starches. Exercise at least 3 times per week. Taking care of your body in these ways will boost your immune system and help your body to fight off any infections that may develop.

The patient may have to wake up in the middle of the night due to sudden sneezing and dripping. Early morning attacks of sneezing are a very common feature of this kind of allergy. Fatigue may also be present in some patients.

If you have a sinus infection, and not just sinus congestion, you can add one teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to the salt water mixture. The addition of the peroxide will kill the bacteria lurking in your sinuses and after using this technique for a few days, you will completely kill the sinus infection and avoid having to make a trip to the doctor to get antibiotics.

Homeopathic treatment of Addison’s disease

Monday, July 21st, 2014

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.
Sign and symptoms mainly involve
• Extreme fatigue
• Significant appetite loss
• Malaise
• Depression
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Muscular weakness
• Dizziness
• Anemia
The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat Addison’s disease but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to treat Addison’s disease that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. There are following remedies which are helpful in the treatment of Addison’s disease:
Adrenalin, arsenic album, phosphorous, Calcaria Ars, Iodum, Sepia, Silicea, Natrum Mur, Calcaria Carb, Argentum Nitricum, Sulphur, Belladonna, Tuberculinum, Nitric Acid, Kali Carb, Ars Iod and few other remedies.

Homeopathic Medicines for urinary infection

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Homeopathic Medicines :

Aconitum apellus: This remedy is often useful when a person feels anxious both before and during urination, with hot, scanty urine, and a burning or spasmodic feeling in the outlet of the bladder. It can also be helpful if retention of urine occurs after a person has been very cold and chilled, or after a shaking experience.

Apis mellifica: This remedy is indicated when the person frequently needs to urinate, but only small quantities are passed. Stinging and burning sensations are felt (especially with the last few drops) and the person may also experience soreness in the abdomen. Heat and touch make the symptoms worse, and cold applications, cool bathing, and open air bring relief. A lack of thirst is another indication that Apis may be needed.

Belladonna: This remedy may be beneficial if urging to urinate is frequent and intense, and the bladder feels very sensitive. A cramping or writhing sensation may be felt in the bladder area. Small amounts of highly-colored urine pass. (This remedy is sometimes helpful if a person passes small amounts of blood and no serious cause can be found on medical examination.)

Berberis vulgaris: Cystitis with twinges of cutting pain, or a burning feeling that extends to the urethra and its opening, may indicate a need for this remedy. The passage may also burn at times when no attempt at urination is being made. After emptying the bladder, the person feels as if some urine still remains inside. Urging and discomfort are often worse from walking.

Cantharis: Strong urging to urinate—with cutting pains that are felt before the urine passes, as well as during and after—may indicate a need for this remedy. Only several drops pass at a time, with a scalding sensation. The person may feel as if the bladder has not been emptied, still feeling a constant urge to urinate.

Borax: This remedy can be helpful for cystitis with smarting pain in the urinary opening and aching in the bladder, with a feeling that the urine is retained. Children may cry or shriek, afraid to urinate because they know the pain is coming. Borax is often indicated for people who are sensitive to noise and inclined toward motion sickness.

Chimaphila umbellata: If a person has a troublesome urge to urinate but has to strain (or even stand up and lean forward) to make it pass, this remedy may be useful. A scalding sensation may be felt while the urine flows, with a feeling of straining afterward.

Clematis: This remedy may be indicated if a person has to urinate frequently with only a small amount being passed. A feeling of constriction is felt in the urinary passage, and the flow may be interrupted, or there may be dribbling afterward. A tingling sensation may occur, lasting long after urination is finished.

Equisetum: If cystitis is accompanied by dull but distressing pain and a feeling of fullness in the bladder, even after urinating, this remedy may be helpful. Urging and discomfort are more intense when the bladder has recently been emptied, improving over time as the bladder become more full.

Treatment of Cough by Homeopathy

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Dry cough is the body’s natural way of defending against irritants in the throat or air passages. Every person has experienced cough at some point in life. It can be just a reaction to a foreign substance or body in the throat, but it can be a sign of some more serious disease, especially if your cough is persistent and followed by breathing difficulties. There are many causes of dry cough but the most common cause is some kind of respiratory tract infection. Other causes of cough may include gastroesophageal reflux disease and lung cancer. Cough can be an adverse reaction to some medications. Cough can also be triggered by air pollution, exposing to chemicals or smoking. Another cause of cough is choking when there is a blockage in the throat.

To determine the best dose and potency, it is best to get a homeopathic guidebook such as the one listed above as the original source of this information.

There are various homeopathic remedies for dry cough. Belladonna is used for sudden and intense cough which makes your face red and sweaty. Bryonia is used when cold air enters your lungs, which causes painful and dry cough, and dry mouth. Cough caused by asthma or triggered by some stressful situation, especially in hypersensitive people, is treated with chamomile. Aconitum napellus is used in similar situation as chamomile. The difference is that aconitum napellus is given in early stages of asthma or croup. Ferrum phosphoricum is recommended for short and painful cough caused by a respiratory tract infection or an allergy. For sever and intense cough followed by breathing difficulties or even vomiting, ipecacuanha is the best option. This remedy is also good for asthma attacks.

Antimonium tart: A loud rattling cough with an inability to expectorate mucus is characteristic of this medicine. Sometimes precipitated after being angered or annoyed, the respiratory difficulties cause these children to feel drowsy, weak, and feeble. Their symptoms are usually worse at 4 a.m. Their difficulty in breathing may cause them to sit up rather than lie down. Concurrent with these breathing difficulties are anxiousness, restlessness, and irritability. They feel chilly but are averse to stuffy warm rooms. They instead desire cool rooms and open windows. This remedy is rarely given at the beginning of an illness.

Belladonna: When cough symptoms appear suddenly and the child has a dry cough with laryngitis, consider this remedy. These children are restless, drowsy, and have wild dreams. Their symptoms are worse at night.

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.

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

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.

Homeopathy for Hay Fever

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Hay fever is often seen as a trivial ailment but this annoying and sometimes distressing complaint now affects about 15 to 20% of the population in the UK. With spring on the way, hay fever sufferers need to review their options for treatment. Conventional medications such as antihistamines and topical steroids, although more refined than they once were, can cause unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, and are generally only effective when used regularly.
