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…

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.
Introduction of Homoeopathy Homoeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is being practiced almost all over the world. In India it has become a household name due the safety of its pills and gentleness of its cure. A rough study states that about 10% of the Indian population solely depend Homoeopathy for their Health care needs and is considered as the Second most popular system of medicine in the Country. It is more than a century and a half now that Homoeopathy is being practiced in India. It has blended so well into the roots and traditions of the country that it has been recognised as one of the National System of Medicine and plays a very important role in providing health care to a large number of people. Its strength lies in its evident effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels. The word ‘Homoeopathy’ is derived from two Greek words, Homois meaning similar and pathos meaning suffering. Homoeopathy simply means treating diseases with remedies, prescribed in minute doses, which are capable of producing symptoms similar to the disease when taken by healthy people. It is based on the natural law of healing- "Similia Similibus Curantur” which means "likes are cured by likes”. It was given a scientific basis by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann ( 1755-1843) in the early 19th century. It has been serving suffering humanity for over two centuries and has withstood the upheavals of time and has emerged as a time tested therapy, for the scientific principles propounded by Hahnemann are natural and well proven and continue to be followed with success even today.
