Homeopathic remedies for cystitis

Friday, July 31st, 2015

urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. The main etiologic agent is Escherichia coli. Although urine contains a variety of fluids, salts, and waste products, it does not usually have bacteria in it. When bacteria gets into the bladder or kidney and multiply in the urine, they may cause a UTI.

The most common type of UTI is acute cystitis often referred to as a bladder infection. An infection of the upper urinary tract or kidney is known as pyelonephritis, and is potentially more serious. Symptoms include frequent feeling and/or need to urinate, pain during urination, and cloudy urine.


The most common symptoms of a bladder infection are burning with urination (dysuria), frequency of urination, an urge to urinate, without vaginal discharge or significant pain. An upper urinary tract infection or pyelonephritis may additionally present with flank pain and a fever.

The symptoms of urinary tract infections may vary with age and the part of the urinary system that was affected. In young children, urinary tract infection symptoms may include diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever and excessive crying that cannot be resolved by typical measures. Older children on the other hand may experience abdominal pain, or incontinence. Lower urinary tract infections in adults may manifest with symptoms including hematuria (blood in the urine), inability to urinate despite the urge and malaise.

Other signs of urinary tract infections include foul smelling urine and urine that appears cloudy.
Depending on the site of infection, urinary tract infections may cause different symptoms. Urethritis, does not usually cause any other symptoms besides dysuria. If the bladder is however affected (cystitis), the patient is likely to experience more symptoms including lower abdomen discomfort, low-grade fever, pelvic pressure and frequent urination all together with dysuria. Infection of the kidneys (acute pyelonephritis) typically causes more serious symptoms such as chills, nausea, vomiting and high fever.

Homeopathy for Vitiligo Treatment

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Vitiligo, also known as leucoderma, is a relatively common skin disorder, in which white spots or patches appear on the skin. These spots are caused by destruction or weakening of the pigment cells in those areas, resulting in the pigment being destroyed or no longer produced. In most cases, vitiligo is believed to be an autoimmune-related disorder. In vitiligo, only the colour of the skin is affected but texture and other skin qualities remain normal. The hair may also turn white that grows in areas affected by vitiligo.

It occurs when the melanocytes, cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or are unable to function. The precise cause of vitiligo is complex and not fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune,genetic, and environmental factors.

Homeopathic Remedies for Warts on Hands, Feet, Soles, Face, Neck, Penis, Vulva.

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

A wart (also known as verruca) is generally a small, rough tumor, typically on hands and feet but often other locations, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister.

Warts are a type of infection caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. There are more than 100 types of HPV viruses. Warts can grow on all parts of body. They can grow on skin, on the inside of mouth, on genitals and on rectal area. Common types of HPV tend to cause warts on the skin (such as the hands and fingers), while other HPV types tend to cause warts on the genitals and rectal area. Some people are more naturally resistant to the HPV viruses and don’t seem to get warts as easily as other people.

Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection and are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur.

Homeopathy for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Saturday, July 25th, 2015

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a condition that becomes apparent in some children in the preschool and early school years. It is hard for these children to control their behavior and/or pay attention. ADHD and ADD symptoms include hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness.

 ADHD in adults

ADHD symptoms persist in adulthood for about 60% of children with ADHD. Adults with ADHD may have difficulty following directions, remembering information, concentrating, organizing tasks, or completing work within time limits.


Most substantiated causes appear to fall in the realm of neurobiology and genetics. This is not to say that environmental factors may not influence the severity of the disorder, but such factors do not seem to give rise to the condition by themselves.

 Signs & Symptoms

The principal characteristics of ADD and ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. These symptoms appear early in a child’s life. When the child’s hyperactivity, distractibility, poor concentration, or impulsivity begin to affect performance in school, social relationships with other children, or behavior at home, ADHD may be suspected. But because the symptoms vary so much across settings,ADHD is not easy to diagnose. This is especially true when inattentiveness is the primary symptom.

There are three subtypes of ADHD recognized by professionals. These are thepredominantly hyperactive-impulsive type (that does not show significant inattention); the predominantly inattentive type (that does not show significant hyperactive-impulsive behavior) sometimes called ADD—an outdated term for this entire disorder; and the combined type (that displays both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms).

Homeopathy for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Homeopathic medicines are known to have deep effect on human psychology and have been found effective in various mental and psychological disorders. The focus of homeopathy is not to treat the isolated symptoms of ADHD but to treat the child as a whole. Not only the symptoms of ADHD but also the general physical and mental constitution of the patient, past medical history, medical history of parents, information about pregnancy and vaccination – all are used to find the probable cause in a given case and based on the final analysis a remedy is chosen for a patient. The following medicines may help in the treatment of ADHD –

Anacardium, Aranea, Argentum-nit, Aurum-met, Baryta carb, Baryta-ioid, Bismuth, Bufo, Calcarea brom, Calcarea carb, Cannabis indica, Capsicum, Carcinocin, Chamomilla, Cina, Cornus, Ferrum met, Gallic acid, Helleborus, Hyoscyamus, Kali brom, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Lyssin, Mancinella, Medorrhinum, Natrum mur, Natrum sulph, Nux mosch, Opium, Phosphorus, Platina, Scorpion, Stramonium, Sulphur, Tarentula, Tuberculinum, Verat-alb.

Homeopathy medicine for the cure of genital herpes.

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Genital herpes is an infection caused by the herpes simplex virus or HSV. There are two types of HSV, and both can cause genital herpes. HSV type 1 most commonly infects the lips, causing sores known as fever blisters or cold sores, but it also can infect the genital area and produce sores. HSV type 2 is the usual cause of genital herpes, but it also can infect the mouth. A person who has genital herpes infection can easily pass or transmit the virus to an uninfected person during sex.

HSV remains in certain nerve cells of the body for life, and can produce symptoms off and on in some infected people.

Most people get genital herpes by having sex with someone who is having a herpes “outbreak.” This outbreak means that HSV is active. When active, the virus usually causes visible lesions in the genital area. The lesions shed (cast off) viruses that can infect another person. A person with genital herpes also can infect a sexual partner during oral sex. The virus is spread only rarely, if at all, by touching objects such as a toilet seat or hot tub.
