Treatment of Acute Childhood Diarrhea With Homeopathic Medicine Abstract Objective. Acute diarrhea is the leading cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality worldwide. Oral rehydration treatment can prevent death from dehydration, but does not reduce the duration of individual episodes. Homeopathic treatment for acute diarrhea is used in many parts of the world. This study was performed to determine whether homeopathy is useful in the treatment of acute childhood diarrhea. Methodology. A randomized double-blind clinical trial comparing homeopathic medicine with placebo in the treatment of acute childhood diarrhea was conducted in León, Nicaragua, in July 1991. Eighty-one children aged 6 months to 5 years of age were included in the study. An individualized homeopathic medicine was prescribed for each child and daily follow-up was performed for 5 days. Standard treatment with oral rehydration treatment was also given. Results. The treatment group had a statistically significant (P < .05) decrease in duration of diarrhea, defined as the number of days until there were less than three unformed stools daily for 2 consecutive days. There was also a significant difference (P < .05) in the number of stools per day between the two groups after 72 hours of treatment. Conclusions. The statistically significant decrease in the duration of diarrhea in the treatment group suggests that homeopathic treatment might be useful in acute childhood diarrhea. Further study of this treatment deserves consideration. Received December 22, 1992. Accepted October 25, 1993. Copyright © 1994 by the American Academy of Pediatrics
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…
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.
Human body and five elements Ethics hospital and health services pvt ltd Everything in the universe consists of these elements representing in different degrees. These elements are comprehensively described as “Panchbhutas” in Sanskrit. As such, every living thing in the universe is built up of the five elements in different volumes in a balanced manner. The 5 elements monitor and control the metabolism on the body and decide the characteristics. Any imbalance will lead to health problems. Ether (Space): Ether (space) is found everywhere. In our body the space attributes to blood vessels, tubes, openings like mouth, ears, nose, intestine etc. In short it is the space where electrons move. Ether also relates to various sounds emanating from the body like heart beat, breathing, intestinal tract functions etc. Air (Vayu): Vayu is in gaseous and mostly exists without physical form. Vayu is mobile and travels from one point to other locations. Vayu is light in nature and has free flow. Air is filled present in every empty space. Air can be sensed or felt. Oxygen in our body function is an example of vayu. It also corresponds breathing process. Fire (Agni): Agni represents Heat & Energy in our body. It forms part of the metabolic system where many chemical reactions take place. The process of Digestion takes place due to the influence of Agni. Agni is produced in the body as part of the metabolic effect. Agni is hot and light in nature. Water (Jal): In our body, the water element represents Liquid substance and fluids such as urine, blood plasma, lymph. Water has physical form, weight and the ability to flow. In our body, this water element is responsible for transporting oxygen to cells, supply nutrients to the cells, flush out waste material and toxins. Water/fluid forms about 50% of the body weight in a human being. Earth (Prithvi): Prithvi element associates to the solid form of our body part or organs. Earth has shape, weight, stability density and is visible. Body skeleton and bones, teeth, muscles, body fat are earth elements. Earth element brings stability to the body and mind. The above five elements are maintained in a healthy body in particular ratio which influence the nature, health and healing power of a person.

Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy was founded in the late 1700s in Germany and has been widely practiced throughout Europe. ... Homeopathy is based on the idea that "like cures like."
Homoeopathy for skin Problem Who doesn’t want a healthy skin? But getting that healthy skin is far easier said than done! We all suffer from skin issues-some common, some not so much. Skin conditions depend on umpteen numbers of factors, such as hormone imbalance, blood impurity, stomach problems, etc. There are some skin problems, which are just superficial while most others are related to internal problems. Skin issues affect the face, hands and other exposed parts of the body. Treating them superficially means just suppressing them, which may lead to similar or graver problems elsewhere or cause it to reappear with more intensity. So the best way to treat these skin problems is to treat them from their roots, internally. Homeopathy is the system of medicine in which ailments are treated by minimal doses of natural substances. It attacks and cures the root cause of the ailment without causing side effects. To deal with skin disease, it not only studies the skin type but also takes into account a complete analysis of the mind, genetic factors and the condition of the immune system. Homeopathy just doesn’t treat the symptoms, but delves inside the body and takes on the root cause behind the symptoms. Homeopathy is effective in treating various skin problems, such as eczema, rashes, allergic dermatitis, Uriticaria, Psoriasis, Lichen Planus and other variants, Lichen Planus and other variants, Chronic and recurring bacterial infections, Chronic and recurring bacterial infections, Fungus infections, Vitiligo, acne, Dandruff, hair loss and many other skin ailments.

Asthma Disease and causes/Successful Treatment by Homoeopathy “Asthma is a very common complaint. It is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the respiratory passage. This allergic lung disorder characterized by periodic attacks of wheezing alternating with periods of relatively normal breathing. Asthma is a very common ailment and affects invariably all age groups. All varieties of wheeze are not asthma as it needs differential diagnosis from other inflammatory disorders of the lung and heart”. What are the causes ? People with asthma have inflamed breathing system, which are supersensitive to certain substances, which do not bother other people. These substances are called " Allergic triggers." Like Allergic Rhinitis, asthma triggers varies from person to person. Most commonly, Asthma attacks are triggered by the Airborne allergens. Rainy weather, sudden change of climate, exposure to spores and dust often predisposes the attack. Early morning attacks are very common as the pollens and dust have a special effect with humidity. Other than the normal allergens such as dust mites, pollens, molds, pet dander and cockroach, the irritants in the air including smoke from cigarettes, wood fires or charcoal grills, cement dust, metal dust shall also provoke an attack. Strong fumes or odours like household sprays, paint, gasoline, perfume and scented soaps do the same provocation. With respiratory infections such as colds, flu, sore throats, and sinusitis, the children could develop breathlessness, which mostly resembles Asthma. Exercise and other activities that makes you breathe harder The basic cause is familial predisposition for most of the victims. The genetic disposition may be in the form of any allergic skin disease and respiratory disorder. Allergic diathesis tends to appear in multifaceted ailments such as Urticaria, Eczema, Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma. This peculiar disease producing power lives as brothers and sisters on the affected victims What are the causes ? Normally, the patient starts with shortbreath, tightness of the chest following few bouts of coughing. Wheezing usually begins suddenly composed of a sequence of attacks, may be worse at night or early morning. Wheezing, a high-pitched whistling sound when breathing out, rales starts and spits mucous phlegm. The symptoms aggravated by exposure to cold air and exercise. After sometime resolves inhalation. Sometimes the victim may feel extreme difficulty in breathing, sweating and palpitation. Face looks anxious and pale. People can observe the abnormal breathing pattern; exhalation takes more than twice as long as inhalation. What happens? During normal breathing, the passage to the lungs are fully open, allowing air to move in and out freely. But people with asthma have inflamed, hypersensitive airways. Their triggers cause the following airpassage to contract, which in turn cause asthma symptoms The lining truncus membrane of the airpassages swell and become more inflamed. Many cells and cellular elements play a role, in particular mast cells, eosinophils, T- lymphocytes, macrophages, neutrophils and epithelial cells. The cells swell and mucus clogs the airways, and the muscles around the airpassage tighten and produces bronchospasm. These changes narrow the airpassage and thus breathing becomes difficult and stressful, like trying to breathe through a straw stuffed with cotton. How to arrest? Allergic Triggers Prevention is very difficult. However, we can identify and minimise contact with Allergic triggers as we do for an allergic rhinitis patient. Diet and Nutrition is essential for asthma patients since the allergens shall invade in the form of food. Allergic Foods Avoid the Allergic foods. Normally the eggs, fish, pulse like nuts and peanuts give immediate sensitive reactions. Delayed sensitivity reactions are caused by milk, chocolate, wheat, citrus and food colourings, infact any and all foods can cause or add to the allergic burden. Patients are very particular in knowing about the diet in detailed manner and prepare for skin sensitivity tests. It is very difficult to find the allergens because it varies from person to person. Egg which produces an allergic reaction to an asthma patient may have no effect on another patient.. Avoid Stress and Emotions As stress is part of your life, find simple ways to diffuse it. Take a walk free in natural atmosphere, meditate, help someone with their problems, work in garden or just take some deep breaths. You must explore and find what works for you. The idea is to turn down the inner tension that we all hangover, take a step back and enjoy the life . If you are in a situation that seems unsolvable, then you might want to get counselling. Very often we stay in relationships, jobs, homes or any number of scenarios that are toxic to us. It's easier to say than to do, to change things but start with small steps. Exercise Life is movement. Think about it. Anything in nature that does not move is usually inanimate. If we are to keep our life force vital we must keep active. This does not mean that we have to work-out 14 hours a day, it means we have to have a regimen of exercises that will keep us flexible with good stamina. For most of us that means 20-30 minutes of some kind of aerobic exercise a day. Depending on the current health status, your ability to adapt anything can vary greatly. You are the best judge of what you are capable of doing. If you are unable to get out of the house or even out of bed, find ways to stretch, low impact exercises, yoga or even a weekly massage can help. Treatment Presently, “ Is there any cure for asthma? I have tried with all sorts of medicines and consulted the most popular physicians, No relief! I am living with steroids and bronchodilators! The latest inhaler gives me temporary relief!” . Exhausted suffering of an asthma patient Patients should understand about their illness thoroughly. The causative factors lie within or may be an inborn or hereditary factor. These are the tendencies which makes allergic to the allergens. We cannot be very careful to each and every allergen! We cannot treat with timely medications all the time, which treat the symptoms, not the disease. If anybody says that "I had beome alright from asthma, " he would have applied similar principles of homoeopathy. This is the reason why modern medical practitioners are trying to desensitise their patients with same Allergens in the name of anti-allergic therapy to find a permanent solution Homoeopathy treats the allergic diathesis and eradicates the tendency from the body! Is it so? How it is done? This is possible only by studying the individuality of the patient as the Allergic triggers are also not similar to every patient. When a suitable medicine is administered it gradually removes the disease force in layers "I had attacks every day! Now I have weekly once, that too with reduced intensity! Now I am able to manage without medicines! I am perfectly alright!". "This common statement from the patients denotes that the disease is being removed in layers, which makes the patient free towards the permanent restoration of health.
