Know the Disease: The Facts The thyroid is a small gland located below the Adam's apple in your neck. It releases hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which increase the amount of oxygen your body uses and stimulate your cells to produce new proteins. By controlling the release of these hormones, the thyroid determines the metabolic rate of most of your body's organs. The thyroid gland is regulated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which is made by the pituitary gland in the brain. Normally, when thyroid hormone levels in the body are high, they will "switch off" the production of TSH, which in turn stops the thyroid from making more T4 and T3. Problems occur when the thyroid gland becomes either underactive (hypothyroidism) or overactive (hyperthyroidism). Thyroid problems are more common in women than men. Cancer may also develop in the thyroid gland. Causes Thyroid diseases sometimes result from inappropriate TSH levels, or may be caused by problems in the thyroid gland itself. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition where the body makes antibodies that destroy parts of the thyroid gland. Surgical removal and certain medications (e.g., amiodarone, lithium) can also cause hypothyroidism. Other causes of hypothyroidism include pituitary problems, hypothalamus problems, and iodine deficiency (rare in North America, but affects nearly 2 billion people worldwide). Some babies are born with hypothyroidism - this is called congenital hypothyroidism. There are different causes of hyperthyroidism. Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. This condition occurs when the immune system produces an antibody that stimulates the entire thyroid gland; this leads to overactivity and higher levels of thyroid hormones. Another form of hyperthyroidism is called toxic nodular goiter or toxic thyroid adenoma. Adenomas, abnormal nodules of tissue in the thyroid, constantly produce thyroid hormones even when they are not needed. Secondary hyperthyroidism is caused when the pituitary gland makes too much TSH, leading to constant stimulation of the thyroid gland. A pituitary tumour may cause TSH levels to rise. More rarely, the pituitary gland becomes insensitive to thyroid hormones, no longer responding to high levels. Another possible cause of hyperthyroidism is a condition called thyroiditis. This condition occurs when the thyroid gland becomes inflamed. Depending on the type of thyroiditis, this may lead to temporary hyperthyroidism that might be followed by hypothyroidism. There are four types of thyroid cancers: papillary, follicular, anaplastic, and medullary cancer. These are associated with radiation treatment to the head, neck, or chest. Radiation treatment for benign (non-cancerous) conditions is no longer carried out in these areas, but was more common in the past. In other cases, a genetic mutation might be associated with thyroid cancer, either alone or in conjunction with other types of cancers (e.g., multiple endocrine neoplasia, BRAF gene mutations). Less commonly, other cancers might metastasize to the thyroid (e.g., lymphoma, breast cancer). Symptoms and Complications Hypothyroidism results in low levels of T4 and T3 in the blood. Not having enough T4 and T3 in the blood causes your metabolism to slow down. Common symptoms include: coarse and dry hair confusion or forgetfulness (often mistaken for dementia in seniors) constipation depression dry, scaly skin fatigue or a feeling of sluggishness hair loss increased menstrual flow (women) intolerance to cold temperatures irritability muscle cramps slower heart rate weakness weight gain If hypothyroidism isn't treated, the symptoms will progress. Rarely, a severe form of hypothyroidism, called myxedema, can develop. Symptoms of myxedema include: low body temperature dulled mental processes congestive heart failure, a condition where the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs Myxedema coma occurs in people with severe hypothyroidism who have been exposed to additional physical stresses such as infections, cold temperatures, trauma, or the use of sedatives. Symptoms include loss of consciousness, seizures, and slowed breathing. Hyperthyroidism results in high levels of T4 and T3 circulating in the blood. These hormones speed up your metabolism. Some of the most common symptoms include: increased heart rate with abnormal rhythm or pounding (palpitations) high blood pressure increased body temperature (feeling unusually warm) increased sweating clamminess feeling agitated or nervous tremors in the hands feeling of restlessness even though the person is tired or weak increased appetite accompanied by weight loss interrupted sleep frequent bowel movements, sometimes with diarrhea puffiness around the eyes, increased tears, sensitivity to light, or an intense stare bone loss (osteoporosis) stopped menstrual cycles Graves' disease, in addition to the common symptoms of hyperthyroidism, may cause a bulge in the neck (goiter) at the location of the enlarged thyroid gland. It also might cause the eyes to bulge out, which may result in double vision. Sometimes, the skin over the shins becomes raised. If hyperthyroidism is left untreated or is not treated properly, a life-threatening complication called thyroid storm (extreme overactivity of the thyroid gland) can occur. Symptoms include: confusion coma fever high blood pressure irregular heartbeat, which can be fatal jaundice associated with liver enlargement mood swings muscle wasting restlessness shock weakness Thyroid storm, considered a medical emergency, can also be triggered by trauma, infection, surgery, uncontrolled diabetes, pregnancy or labour, or taking too much thyroid medication. Making the Diagnosis Thyroid disease suspected by clinical history and physical exam is confirmed by laboratory tests. Laboratory tests usually measure levels of TSH and thyroid hormones. Serology tests can measure the levels of antibodies associated with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. If your doctor suspects thyroid cancer, a biopsy can be used to sample the thyroid tissue and test for cancer. Another method called a functional stimulation test can be used to distinguish whether the pituitary and thyroid glands are the source of medical symptoms. Ultrasounds and nuclear thyroid scans allow for visual and functional examination of the thyroid gland or of nodules.
Homeopathic remedies for difficulties during breastfeeding Homeopathy is proved as the safest and the most effective way to tackle various problems during feeding period. Talking about breastfeeding, the Dr Pankaj Aggarwal says, “Homeopathy will greatly help mothers with nursing and breastfeeding difficulties. Homeopathy helps women with problems that can make it difficult for them to breastfeed successfully include mastitis, painful nipples and a slow milk supply. Breast milk gives babies the optimal start in life.” It is important for mothers to feed their child but nowadays women avoid doing so because of certain body related issues they have or they might get afterwards, like breast sagging. Following are some of the homeopathic remedies which can help mothers during this crucial period of their lives. Agnus castus- Remedy for suppression of the milk accompanied with depression. Belladonna- For the first signs of mastitis. The mother feels hot, red, throbbing. Very intense and sudden onset with pain and extreme tenderness in the breast.

It is also useful for breast infections (mastitis) where there are painful lumps in the breast. Pulsatilla -When the person is depressed and tearful. She may weep while breastfeeding and needs a lot of support and company. Used if you are over producing milk. Also used for a milk supply that is erratic, meaning that is good, then it is low, then it is adequate again. Ricinus communis – For non-appearance of milk or to increase breast milk.

Ethics hospital treatment for Varicose Veins in coimbatore Ethics hospital and health services pvt ltd Enlarged, twisted veins with nonfunctioning valves. In normal veins, valves in the vein keep blood moving forward toward the heart. With varicose veins, the valves do not function properly, allowing blood to remain in the vein. Pooling of blood in the vein causes it to enlarge. This usually occurs in the veins of the legs, although it may occur elsewhere.Causes include congenitally defective valves, thrombophlebitis, and pregnancy. Prolonged standing or sitting, poor posture, and increased pressure within the abdomen will both increase susceptibility or aggravate the condition.Primary varicose veins occurs because of congenitally defective valves or without a known cause. Secondary varicose veins occur because of another condition, such as occurs when a pregnant woman develops varicose veins (because the enlarged uterus puts pressure on the veins that drain the legs). Symptoms are pain in the legs: fullness, heaviness, aching, muscle cramps of the legs visible, enlarged veins, swelling of ankles, skin at the ankle discolored brown, skin ulcers on the legs or above the ankle. Treatment may not be required unless the condition is painful or is causing skin ulcers. Treatment may be requested to improve the appearance. Surgery such as vein stripping and ligation (removal of the varicose vein) or sclerotherapy of veins (injecting with a solution that causes scarring, which closes the vein) may be recommended. In homoeopathy medicine like Puls, Hemamiles, Calc flur are used for the treatment. The proper analysis of the case with the qualified homoeopathic physician will give the better results.
What are kidneys? The kidneys are the master chemists of your body. Normally, you have two kidneys, one on either side of the spine under the lower ribs. They are pink in colour and shaped like beans. Each kidney is about the size of your fist. The urinary system is made up of the kidneys, the ureters, the bladder and the urethra. Each plays an important role in helping your body to eliminate waste products in the form of urine. The main function of the kidneys is to remove the waste products from the blood and return the cleaned blood back to the body. The ureters carry the waste products, as urine, from the kidneys to the bladder where it is stored until you urinate. Urine passes out of the body through a tube called Urethra. How does the stone form? Kidney stones usually are formed inside the kidney. The body creates kidney stones from a wide variety of substances. It is very difficult to know exactly what kind of stone a patient's body produces. The stones are formed from a supersaturated solution of urine. “Promoters” are the components of the various stones: calcium, oxalate, urate, cystine etc. “Inhibitors” of stone formation include pyrophosphate and magnesium. The formation of a renal calculus depends on the balance between stone promoters and inhibitors. “Citrate” tends to prevent stones. The stones are formed as small crystal which gradually increase in size. They travel through ureter to reach the bladder. Sometimes the patient may void small stone with mild irritation while urination. Larger ones block the urinary tract causing pain, hydronephrosis and failure. A kidney stone can also develop when certain chemicals in your urine form crystals that stick together. What causes kidney stones to form? There are many potential causes of kidney stone formation. In general they are the result of a super concentration of chemicals in the urine that results in crystals being formed. A disorder in your metabolism, dietary habits, dehydration, recurrent urinary tract infections, blockage of the urinary tract could alter your urine concentration. To win over the kidney stones problem one has to wage a two-staged war. The first part involves becoming stone-free . The second is to eliminate the tendency for recurrence. Kidney stones are well treated with Homoeopathic Medicines. I have come across a lot of cases those escaped from surgery. The stones of sizes of 10mm to 12mm and multiple calculi can be treated well. There are some stones of larger size occupying the whole pelvis to be placed for surgery. Homoeopathic medicine which is selected on the basis of constitution of the victim will normalise the metabolism. The further deposition can be prevented. The Mother tincture has a very good action in erosion of the stones layer-by-layer. When a victim has the tendency to produce stones his basic metabolism have to be corrected. This is the reason why the stones recur after a surgery. A patient cannot adopt food habits for a long-time. Homoeopathic Medicines have the job here! I have treated many cases of renal calculus. I can say that the cure rate is very high. I have advised surgical measure for vesical calculus and renal stones those very large in size occupying the entire inner surface. The stones inside the pelvis dissolve gradually and further deposition is minimized with the dynamic remedies. The stones obstructing the ureteric lumen pass out during micturation. I remember a case of multiple bilateral renal calculi, one being of 2.5 cm on right kidney. He was hospitalized for acute pain in abdomen and had been treated with IV fluids. The nephrologist advised for immediate surgery as the patient had mild hydronephrosis. Meanwhile the patient happened to see my TV interview and consulted me with numerous doubts. He started taking Homoeopathic Medicines after little hesitation. After few days he voided some stones during urination. I asked him to undergo scan studies and those reported that the size of the large calculus had been greatly reduced to 1.2 cms and a few small calculi on both sides were present of 3-5 mm size. He took treatment for about a year. Now he is free from his complaints. I happened to meet him in train after five years and asked with curiosity, “ How are you? Do you have any complaints?” He replied, "No Doctor! Few months back I verified with scan. No problem Doctor. Thank you…
