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.
Nipah Virus epidemic and Homoeopathy Last updated : 25/5/2018 This article highlights the probable homoeopathic genus epidemicus based on the data collected from the care takers of the affected victims in Calicut, Kerala of South India after detailed study and discussion by RAECH – Rapid Action Epidemic Cell Homoeopathy Govt of Kerala Compiled by Dr Mansoor Ali Nipah virus (NiV) was initially isolated and identified in 1999 during an outbreak of encephalitis and respiratory illness among pig farmers and people with close contact with pigs in Malaysia and Singapore. Its name originated from Sungai Nipah, a village in the Malaysian Peninsula where pig farmers became ill with encephalitis. Given the relatedness of NiV to Hendra virus, bat species were quickly singled out for investigation and flying foxes of the genus Pteropus were subsequently identified as the reservoir for NiV Transmission of Nipah virus to humans may occur after direct contact with infected bats, infected pigs, or from other NiV infected people. Signs & Symptoms Infection with Nipah virus is associated with encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). After exposure and an incubation period of 5 to 14 days, illness presents with 3-14 days of fever and headache, followed by drowsiness, disorientation and mental confusion. These signs and symptoms can progress to coma within 24-48 hours. Some patients have a respiratory illness during the early part of their infections, and half of the patients showing severe neurological signs showed also pulmonary signs Diagnosis Virus isolation attempts and real time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) from throat and nasal swabs, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, and blood should be performed in the early stages of disease. Antibody detection by ELISA (IgG and IgM) can be used later on. In fatal cases, immunohistochemistry on tissues collected during autopsy may be the only way to confirm a diagnosis. Treatment in conventional medicine Treatment is limited to supportive care. Because Nipah virus encephalitis can be transmitted person-to-person, standard infection control practices and proper barrier nursing techniques are important in preventing hospital-acquired infections (nosocomial transmission). Prevention Nipah virus infection can be prevented by avoiding exposure to sick individuals, pigs and bats in endemic areas. Avoiding personal contacts is the best option. Source : https://www.cdc.gov/vhf/nipah/index.html Lesson from Andhra Pradesh- BCT programme Between 1993 and 1999 there were 5308 recorded cases of Jpanees encephalitis in the state, of which 1511 resulted in fatalities. The Government of Andhra Pradesh recruited homeopaths to help curb the JE epidemic at a mass scale in 1999. After the commencement of BCT (Belladona, Calc Carb & Tuberculinum) in 1999 in Andhrpardesh, both mortality and morbidity rates of JE fell significantly. A total of 343 cases were reported in 2000 with 72 deaths, in 2001 only 30 cases with 4 deaths, in 2002 only 18 cases but no deaths, in 2003 and 2004 no cases were recorded. The Government had officially published the statistics and acknowledged the efficacy of homeopathy. This is the first major involvement of homeopathy in the field of prevention of epidemic diseases in our country. Neighbouring states which have not adopted this method continued to show higher incidence of JE cases. After witnessing the decline in India other nations are showing keen interest in this innovative method. Currently homoeopathy donot have a specific curative treatment for Nipah virus infection. But we can manage and help the public to a great extened by giving genus epidemicus. Based on the data collected from care takers in Calicut, Kerala – after detailed study and discussion with experts of RAECH, on the principles of homoeopathy GE, we worked out the following symptoms and found the probable Genus Epidemicus as par with BCT programme in Andhra Pradesh.

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.
Homoeopathy Medicines for skin problem 1. Rhus Toxicodendron: This is a useful remedy for treating Eczema. In Eczema, the skin is covered with numerous vesicular eruptions. The symptoms of eczema include itching, tingling, swelling, etc. The symptoms get worse at night, during winter and in damp weather. Cold air aggravates the problem. Warmth and moisturizing provides some temporary relief. It tends to get worse and become uriticaria and herpes, if not treated on time. Rhus-Tox is very effective in controlling and treating this disease.
