Hypocalcemia – its causes & symptoms

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Causes of Hypocalcemia:

  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • HORMONAL IMBALANCE: FUNCTION OF THYROID GLAND AND PARATHYROID GLANDS: Parathyroid glands are responsible for balance of calcium and phospore in the blad. Parathyroid glands are part of thyroid gland, and usualy if thyroid gland is underactive, parathyroid glands are affected as well.
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Magnesium deficiency
  • Alcoholism
  • Biphosphonate therapy – drugs used to treat high blood calcium levels or pills used to treat osteoporosis.
  • Certain types of leukemia or blood disorders
  • A complication of chemotherapy, tumor lysis syndrome, occurs when your body breaks down tumor cells rapidly, after chemotherapy. This may cause hypocalcemia, high blood potassium levels, and other electrolyte abnormalities.
  • Drugs such as diuretics, estrogens replacement therapy, fluorides, glucose, insulin, excessive laxative use, and magnesium may also lead to hypocalcemia.
  • Chemotherapy drugs (cisplatin)
  • Diuretics (furosemide[Lasix] or bumetanide[Bumex])
  • Antibiotics (amphotericin B)
  • Corticosteroids
  • Certain things in your diet, like caffeine, phosphates (found in soda pop) can make difficulties to calcium apsorption.

Symptoms of Hypocalcemia:

  • The most common sign of hypocalcemia is “neuromuscular irritability.” Your nerves and muscles, which are directly related to blood calcium levels, may spasm or twitch.
  • If your blood test results indicate hypocalcemia, you may have muscle cramps in your legs or your arms.
  • The symptoms of hypocalcemia you experience may relate to how fast or how slowly the fall in blood calcium levels occur.
    • If you have long-standing low blood calcium levels, you may notice no symptoms of hypocalcemia.
    • If you have an “acute” or sudden drop in your blood calcium level, you may notice more twitching.
  • numbness and tingling of fingers and toes.
  • you can be depressed, or more irritable
  • You may become confused or disoriented AND VERY, VERY SLEEPY.
  • heart muscle contracts irregularly due to the electrolyte disturbance.
  • Increased urination.
  • Poor appetite that does not improve
  • sudden fall of level of calcium can cause: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.

Homeopathic remedy for Magnesium Deficiency

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Magnesium Phos, #8, is the best remedy for muscle spasms-back, leg, abdomen or calf. Use in the evening for a peaceful night sleep without charley horses. Relaxes tight back muscles. Supports intestinal health and is beneficial for abdominal spasms and intestinal problems such as colitis or constipation. Magnesium Phos calms agitated nerves for pain relief of headache, writer’s cramp, sciatica, neuralgia. Use before and after dental work to calm tooth pain. Spasmodic is a key symptom and Magnesium Phos calms spasmodic coughs, hiccups and menstrual cramps. Magnesium helps with abdominal pains improved by eating.


Magnesium Phos is from magnesium, an important mineral that is involved in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. Homeopathic Magnesium Phos goes quickly into the system for prompt relief. Studies have shown that most adults are deficient in the mineral magnesium. Refined foods, pollution, non-absorption and insufficient ability of the body to utilize magnesium in the body are some of the causes. It is especially recommended that diabetics, individuals with heart disease and those with high blood pressure have their magnesium levels checked.


Magnesium Phos, especially in low potency 6X, can help your body utilize magnesium in the body and from food and is completely safe (unlike 500 mg supplements that can cause bowel overload with resulting diarrhea). Helpful information on are homeopathic potency of minerals used within the cells. Cell Salts can improve the body’s ability to absorb Magnesium. If lacking in Magnesium Phos, nerves are on edge with the inability to relax emotionally (showing as anxiety, nervous disorders, depression) and physically (showing as muscle problems, fibromyalgia-worse with even a light touch, nerve sensitivity-even the skin may feel overly sensitive).

Magnesium Phos is found inside the cells of muscles, nerves, bones, the brain and spine. Deficiency affects muscle fibers and nerve endings. Magnesium is one of the trio including Potassium and Calcium involved in muscle function. Magnesium deficiency has been linked with CFS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.


Consider Magnesium Phosp when there has been nerve injury or damage. Speed injury recovery with Magnesium Phos. Magnesium Phos is indicated when nerve pain is shooting, darting, or spasmodic. Couple this with magnesium’s presence in the brain and you’ll see Magnesium Phos importance in neuralgias and headaches.


Magnesium Phos is the Cell Salt to use for nerve pain. Magnesium Phos is indicated for migraines, fatigue, hearing disorders, Meniere’s disease, neuralgia, panic attacks.


Works successfully with other therapies. Absorbs instantly, great for people with digestion difficulties.

6 Powerful Ways to Boost Your Magnesium Levels

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

To get your Magnesium levels up quickly, use at least five of these techniques :

1. Eat Magnesium rich foods. The top ten foods sources highest in Magnesium are:
  1. Kelp
  2. Almonds
  3. Cashews
  4.  Molasses
  5. Buckwheat
  6. Brazil nuts
  7. Dulse
  8. Filberts
  9. Millet
  10. Pecans
It’s important to soak nuts for twelve hours to activate them, then rinse them, which releases enzyme inhibitors, phytic acid. Otherwise, eating nuts may increase Magnesium levels but decrease Zinc levels, which is also another essential mineral.
2. Take a top quality oral Magnesium supplement two times a day - with either breakfast or lunch, and dinner. The best kinds of Magnesium supplements that I recommend:
  • Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate
  • Liquid colloidal Magnesium
  • Magnesium Chloride
  • Magnesium Citrate
3. Stop  doing things that waste Magnesium. Things to avoid if you want to keep your Magnesium levels high:
  • Gluten.
  • Cooked foods – cooked foods can actually strip minerals from the body. Instead, eat plenty of raw foods (nuts, seeds, vegetables).
  • Alcohol
  • Non-organic farmed “foods” come from deficient soil that uses herbicides and pesticides that can deplete Magnesium.
  • Refined sugar, including corn syrup and artificial sweeteners.
  • Prolonged stress – Magnesium will leech out quickly if the emotions aren’t brought back into balance. Yoga will help with this.
  • Cheap common table salt – replace it with good quality Himalayan crystal salt or Celtic Sea salt.
  • Tap water that is laced with poisonous sodium fluoride – get a good water filter
  • Refined stuff of any kind – including unfermented soy products.
  • Regular and decaffeinated coffee or black tea
4.  Magnesium oil, which is rubbed into the skin. If you combine Magnesium rich foods with Magnesium supplements and a topical form, it restores magnesium levels faster. It is recommend rubbing Magnesium oil on your feet before you go to bed, especially if you have trouble falling asleep or your legs twitch at night.
5. Make sure you get enough of these other nutrients to utilize, absorb and keep Magnesium in your body:
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
  • Selenium
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B6
6. There are some extremely good homeopathic Magnesium formulas that work excellently! They work really well because they open up the cell receptor site where the Magnesium needs to enter. If the Magnesium deficiency has been serious for a long time, there is a chance the receptor site has shut down. The homeopathic remedy Mag Phos can wake it up to allow Magnesium to quickly be absorbed into cells again.

Foods to Avoid After a Miscarriage

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Low-Fiber Starches

Carbohydrates provide your body’s main fuel. Fiber-rich sources promote blood sugar control, which is important for maintaining positive energy levels and preventing headaches, anxiety and added dizziness during your recovery. Refined grains, such as white flour, have a high glycemic index, meaning they have a more dramatic impact on your blood sugar and can cause a spike followed by drops commonly known as crashes. Choose primarily nutritious, complex carbohydrate sources, such as oatmeal, brown rice and yams, keeping low-fiber starches, such as instant rice, egg noodles and pretzels, to a minimum.

Sugary Sweets

Like refined grains, sugary foods tend to have a high glycemic impact. They also leave less room in your diet for nutritious foods, such as fruits and vegetables. As prime antioxidant sources, fruits and vegetables help reduce inflammation and strengthen your body’s ability to resist infections, which can occur after a miscarriage. Instead of candy, reach for fresh, dried or cooked fruit, such as baked apple or pear slices dusted with cinnamon. To add more nutrients to your starches, such as whole-grain pasta and rice, add fresh or frozen vegetables while cooking. To stay hydrated, drink plenty of water instead of sugary drinks.

Fatty Milk and Meats

Much of the fat in meats and dairy products is saturated, a form that increases inflammation. To stay healthy and, if desired, prepare your body for an additional pregnancy, It is recommended relying on lean meats, cold-water fish and beans for protein. The omega-3 fats in oily fish, such as salmon, could reduce your risk of premature delivery in the future. Meats and dairy products particularly high in unhealthy saturated fat include lamb, beef, pork, poultry with the skin on, butter, cheese and whole milk. When preparing a lean protein source, such as fish, use low-fat cooking techniques, such as broiling, baking and steaming.

Trans Fatty Foods

Trans fats are made through a process in which hydrogen is added to vegetable oil, resulting in a long-lasting, but highly inflammatory, fat source. It is recommended avoiding these fats, which are common in fried foods and commercial baked goods, such as pie crust, cookies, crackers, pastries and pizza dough. Because trans fats don’t need to be listed on food packaging if the product contains less than 0.5 gram per serving, look at the ingredients list and avoid foods containing partially hydrogenated oils. For a healthy alternative to commercial french fries, bake sweet potato slices brushed with olive oil and dusted with fresh or dried herbs. Instead of crackers, have air-popped popcorn, which is a whole grain.

 

 

 

 

Miscarriage Prevention – Homeopathy and Habitual Abortions

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

 

 

Approximately 15 percent of all recorded pregnancies end in miscarriages. The first three months of pregnancy is the crucial period when such a spontaneous loss of the fetus is most likely to occur. This is also fortunately the only time period during a pregnancy when the fetus poses very little of a risk to the health of the mother carrying it. Miscarriages can be caused by a disease known as toxoplasmosis, a condition leading to the swelling of the glands, the development of aching muscles and the development of persistent but low-grade fevers can indicate toxoplasmosis. This disease is also responsible for many stillbirths and some kinds of serious birth defects in babies. At any rate, miscarriages have a huge emotional impact on the parents-the situation can be very traumatic for both mother and father, the trauma by its nature is greatest for the woman as she is the one who is physically conscious of the loss of the fetus. An emotional as well as a physical shock is induced by the occurrence of a miscarriage in the last three months of pregnancy. The life of the mother is also directly imperiled by losing her child at this point of time in the term of pregnancy and such situation is and should be treated as a serious medical emergency, requiring immediate visits to the hospital.

For a wholesome pregnancy, it is imperative for both men and women to have the most favorable health.

 Causes of Habitual Abortion

  • Unidentified cause
  • Hereditary
  • Congenital structural defect of the cervix or uterus
  • Chromosome deformity
  • Defect in the reproductive cell of the mother or father or time of egg implantation
  • Blood incompatibility of husband and wife
  • Hormonal imbalance like lack of progesterone or hormonal abnormalities like defective corpus luteum function, which is responsible for establishing and maintaining pregnancy in females
  • Pelvic Inflammatory disease, fibroid tumors, Polycystic Ovarian Cysts Disease
  • High blood pressure, diabetes, kidney diseases, thyroid disorders
  • Problems with immune system
  • Thrombophilia (blood clotting disorder), anemia
  • Chronic constipation, Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Viral, bacterial or fungal infection or acquired through sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Excessive use of certain drugs such as painkillers, antibiotics, tranquilizers, hormones, anti cancer agents, etc
  • Exposure to certain chemicals, X-Rays and other environmental toxins
  • Excessive physical or mental stress
  • Smoking, alcohol and substance abuse
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Obesity

Symptoms of Habitual Abortion

  • Abdominal pain similar to labor pains
  • Bleeding with discharge of tissue

 

 Self Care Measures

  • Have a complete medical check up if you are planning to get pregnant.
  • See your doctor as soon as possible if you think you might be pregnant.
  • Eat a normal well balanced diet.
  • Avoid refined carbohydrates, caffeine, foods leading to constipation.
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol, drugs.
  • Do not use any medicines including non-prescription drugs without medical advice.

Homeopathic Remedies for Hypertension

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Three remedies are prescribed more often than any other – 

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.

Sanguinaria: A feeling that blood is rushing to the head, with flushed red cheeks and pulsing in the neck, may indicate this remedy. The person may have headaches or migraines (usually on the right and worse from light and noise). Right-sided neck and shoulder problems, allergies, heartburn, and digestive problems are often seen, and burning pains are typical. Symptoms are worse from motion, and relief may come from being in the dark and sleeping. A craving for spicy food, and a tendency to feel worse from eating sweets are other indications for Sanguinaria.

Homeopathy Dosage Directions

Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

Warts: Treating Them with Homeopathy

Monday, February 16th, 2015

 

 

Three remedies are prescribed more often than any other – Antimonium crudum (Ant-c.), Nitricum acidum (Nit-ac.) and Thuja occidentalis (Thuj.).

Antimonium crudum (Ant-c.): Hard, smooth warts that often appear in groups. Irritability and a thickly coated white tongue also suggest the need for this remedy. The person may also overeat and have various digestive complaints.

Calcarea carbonica (Calc.): Round, hard, solitary warts. Often useful for endophytic warts that have a horny wall surrounding a central depression. Indicated in people with clammy hands and feet who prefer routine and the familiar rather than change and the unknown.

Often useful for endophytic warts that have a horny wall surrounding a central depression or the more common plantar wart.

Ruta graveolens (Ruta): This is a leading remedy for plantar warts, especially on the palms of the hand. People needing Ruta are prone to injuries of tendons and periosteum of bone.

Thuja occidentalis (Thuj.): The most common remedy for various kinds of warts. If no other remedy is obviously indicated, consider Thuja. Particularly indicated in isolated, jagged warts that smell or bleed easily or mosaic warts on the sole of the foot. Commonly needed for anogenital warts or butcher’s warts. Indicated in those prone to numerous growths or tumors and who worry too much about what people think of them.

Hemangioma

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

What Is a Hemangioma?

Hemangiomas are noncancerous growths that form due to an abnormal collection of blood vessels. They are usually found on the skin or internal organs—particularly the liver. Because they are congenital, most people develop them before birth, while they are still in the womb.

Hemangiomas on the liver rarely cause symptoms. Usually, they are not discovered until you are tested for an unrelated condition. Skin hemangiomas appear as small scratches on babies and grow larger as the child ages. However, most hemangiomas of the skin disappear by the age of 10.

Hemangiomas are usually small, but in some cases they may grow large, or develop lesions and require removal. There are no known ways to prevent the growth of hemangiomas on the skin or organs.

How Do Hemangiomas Develop?

Hemangiomas of the skin develop when blood vessels group together into a single lump. Experts are not sure why blood vessels group together like this, but they suspect it is caused by certain proteins that are produced in the placenta during gestation (or the time when you are in the womb).

On the Skin

Hemangiomas of the skin can form on the top layer of skin or on the fatty layer underneath. In the beginning, it may appear to be a red birthmark on the skin. Slowly, it will start to protrude from the skin.

On the Liver

Hemangiomas of the liver form in and on the liver’s surface. These hemangiomas are thought to be estrogen-sensitive. During menopause, many women are prescribed replacement estrogen to minimize the symptoms caused by the decline of their natural estrogen levels. This excess estrogen can fuel the growth of liver hemangiomas.

Where Else Can Hemangiomas Grow?

Hemangiomas can grow on other areas within the body, such as the:

  • kidneys
  • lungs
  • colon
  • brain

Hemangiomas that grow in the brain cavities or other cavities within the body are called cavernous hemangiomas.

Signs and Symptoms of Hemangiomas

Hemangiomas do not normally cause symptoms during or after their formation. However, they may cause some symptoms if they grow large, if there are multiple hemangiomas, or if they grow in a sensitive area.

How Do Skin Hemangiomas Look?

Hemangiomas of the skin usually appear to be small red scratches or bumps. As they grow, their appearance is similar to a burgundy-colored birthmark. Skin hemangiomas are sometimes called strawberry hemangiomas, because of their deep-red appearance. This type is mostly found on the neck or the face.

Symptoms of Hemangiomas of the Internal Organs

Hemangiomas within the body usually go unnoticed until they grow large or multiple hemangiomas form.

Common symptoms that you might have are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • abdominal discomfort
  • loss of appetite
  • unexplained weight loss
  • a feeling of fullness in the abdomen

Potential Causes of Back Pain in Children and Teens

Friday, February 13th, 2015

While adults can have vertebral disc injuries involving rupture, protrusion or slipping, and compression, these problems are uncommon in children. However, as kids age and their bodies mature, it becomes more likely that an injury to the spinal discs may occur and cause back pain.

Causes of Back Pain that Tend to Occur Among Older Children:

  • Spondylolysis. As kids’ sporting events become more competitive and the activities more specialized, certain types of injuries causing back pain tend to arise.  Spondylosis, a defect of the joint between vertebral bones, is commonly found in those who tend to hyperextend their backs (bend backwards), such as gymnasts. This injury may actually represent a stress fracture and the period of rest and recuperation may be extensive – up to 4 to 6 weeks.
  • Spondylolisthesis. Occasionally, further injury can be found as spondylolisthesis, a “slipping” of one vertebra upon another. This condition can progress through adolescence, and if it results in instability and back pain it may require spinal fusion surgery at a later point.
  • Disc Injuries and vertebral fractures. Teens who tend to punish their spines through gymnastics or extreme sports (such as skateboarding, in-line skating, and vert biking) will frequently land very hard on their feet or buttocks. Either way, the force is transmitted to their vertebrae, which can result in a vertebral fracture  and/or damage to the intervertebral discs.If the disc material is extruded out or herniated, the spinal cord nerve roots leaving the cord can be compressed. This causes the sensation of pain along the path of that nerve. A well-known version of this is sciatica which presents as buttock pain radiating down the back of a leg. Nonsurgical measures are usually the first line of treatment for this type of pain (such as physical therapy, medications, osteopathic or
    chiropractic adjustment If these treatments do not provide sufficient pain relief, patients may require surgery (e.g. a microdiscectomy or discectomy) to relieve pressure on the nerve.
