Hi, I am 34 years old married woman (weight 80 kg and height 5.3 inches having no kids) suffering from hypothyroidism since last 2 years. My T3 and T4 is within range from very beginning but TSH keeps on fluctuating. For 3 months it's within range and then it increases, so the doctor has to increase the dose. Then for next 3-4 months it's stable but after 3-4 months it does increase. I started with 50 mcg and now taking 100 mcg. Unable to understand why it's happening to me. Please advice.

Hi, I am 34 years old married woman (weight 80 kg and height 5.3 inches having no kids) suffering from hypothyroidism...
There are multiple reason starting from mental to physical and hormonal disturbances. Your marriage relationship plays important role in it. Normally those people who cannot express and share their emotions may suffer with such kind of illness. Apart from medicine you have to start yoga and meditation and you have to start thinking positively for what has happened and what is happening with you. Surely it will help you a lot.

Gastrointestinal Tract Problems - Homeopathic Remedies That Are Good At Managing It!

Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Gastrointestinal Tract Problems - Homeopathic Remedies That Are Good At Managing It!

Whether you eat to live or live to eat, everyone suffers from a gastrointestinal tract infection at some point or the other. This can range from acidity and mild indigestion to diarrhoea and stomach ulcers. Digestive problems can make day to day life uncomfortable and in some cases become embarrassing as well. Thankfully, most gastrointestinal tract infections can be treated and cured easily.

Stomach and digestive problems spare no person. At times, the stomach disorder is of a short duration and at other times longer. Both stomach and digestive problems indicate that there is something inherently out of order and the body needs immediate help. The discomfort that accompanies stomach and digestive problems can hinder life’s activities and become an embarrassment too. Homeopathy has a cure for both stomach and digestive problems. The natural Homeopathic remedies for stomach and digestive problems are not only of great help in getting rid of stomach problems but also eliminate the root cause of the digestive disorders. The Homeopathic treatment is completely safe with zero side effects and proves to be of immense benefit in the long run.

When it comes to such infections, homeopathy is a form of medicine that is preferred by many. This is because it has negligible side effects and can be prescribed for children and adults alike. Homeopathy treats not only the physical symptoms exhibited by the patient but his or her overall physical, mental and emotional health.

Some homeopathic remedies used to treat digestion problems are:

  1. Nux Vomica- This is considered the ‘go to’ remedy for almost all stomach problems. It can be used to treat heartburn, constipation, indigestion etc. It also relieves bloating and a sense of fullness after eating a heavy meal.

  2. Pulsatilla- This homeopathic remedy can be used to deal with the gastric trouble that results from excessive consumption of fatty foods and for the treatment of loose stools. Most people who benefit from this medicine showcase an absence of thirst.

  3. China- China helps relieve bloating caused by excessive gas in the abdomen. This bloating may also be accompanied by severe abdominal pain. Diarrhoea that is a result of eating fruits and that causes extreme weakness can also be treated with China. China can also be used to treat loose stools that are accompanied by blood.

  4. Arsenic Album- Gastric troubles caused by food poisoning can be treated with Arsenic Album. Some of the problems it addresses are nausea, vomiting, stomach aches and loose stools. In such cases, the patient may also complain that the discomfort worsens on eating or drinking anything and may experience a burning sensation in the stomach.

  5. Lycopodium- Homeopathic medicine for stomach feeling full after eating very little. Sometimes a person may feel full even though he or she has eaten very little. Lycopodium is the ideal remedy for this problem. It is also used to treat acidity caused by the intake of starchy food and gas in the stomach that causes burping.

  6. Ipecac- This homeopathic remedy can be used to treat persistent nausea or simply an extremely nauseating feeling. This nausea may or may not be accompanied by other gastric complaints.

How Homeopathy Can Help In Treating Patchy Baldness?

Homeopath, Ahmedabad
How Homeopathy Can Help In Treating Patchy Baldness?

Alopecia areata is a condition that makes hair fall out in patches. For the same reason, it is also known as patchy baldness. This condition occurs when an individual’s own immune system starts to attack the hair follicles. This is the reason why it can even prevent hair from coming back.

In some people though, hair may grow back again. However, there is no guarantee that they will now fall out again. The extent of hair loss and appearance of patches varies from one person to another.

Apart from autoimmune diseases, the following are some of the reasons that trigger alopecia or patchy baldness:

  1. Abnormal levels of androgens
  2. Stress, childbirth, or any type of illness 
  3. The use of specific drugs such as chemotherapy agents, beta-blockers, blood-thinning medications, and birth control pills
  4. Cosmetic procedures such as frequent shampooing, bleaching, and perms
  5. Low-protein diet
  6. Burns and injuries
  7. Thyroid, iron deficiency, lupus, or diabetes

There is no remedy available for complete cure of patchy baldness. However, it can be managed with the help of conventional treatment modalities such as ultraviolet light treatment, immunotherapy, topical or oral steroids and steroids injections.

But there is not any surety that these treatment modalities will work effectively for all patients. Moreover, a majority of these treatment modalities may take months to show results. Homeopathic treatment, on the other hand, is considered highly effective and efficient against alopecia areata. There are a number of homeopathic medications that can help provide long-term relief and permanent cure. Moreover, these homeopathic remedies are 100 percent safe and do not cause any side effects, unlike conventional treatment options.

Following are some of the common homeopathic medications made available to the patients from the treatment of alopecia areata or patchy baldness:

  1. Silica: This proves to be highly beneficial against baldness in young people and hair fall in the forehead and frontal region. It also helps control early greying of hair.
  2. Graphites: This help control hair fall from the sides of the scalp. It also takes good care of patchy baldness and hair loss associated with menopause.
  3. Phosphorus: It is highly effective against patchy baldness and other problems related to the scalp such as the itchy and dry scalp and dandruff. It also helps treat hair fall after any haemorrhagic disorder.
  4. Fluoric acid: This is best suited for people who have a tendency to develop alopecia because of family history. It also helps control brittle hair, idiopathic hair fall, and vertex baldness.
  5. Phosphoric acid: This helps control hair fall related to grief, thinning of hair, and early graying of hair.

Remove Kidney Stones Successfully Through Homeopathy!

Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Remove Kidney Stones Successfully Through Homeopathy!

Are you looking for an effective remedy for the removal of kidney stones? Kidney stones or renal calculi are solid concretions or crystal aggregations of the minerals dissolved in urine. These commonly form inside the kidneys or the gallbladder. Kidney stone is a very common disease associated with the urinary tract and occurs more in men than in women. Homeopathy is the most natural mode of treatment for kidney stones and it cures the underlying cause of the problem.

Homeopathic medicines for kidney stone are dual action remedies which are natural and safe. First, they help remove the stones present in the urinary tract either by crushing them into fine sand-like particles or in a few cases, in the intact state. Secondly, they hold the promise of completing removing the tendency towards stone formation in the future. While selecting the appropriate Homeopathic medicine for kidney stone, the side affected is considered along with the pain and associated symptoms. The colour of sand particles in urine helps to further refine the search.  Although kidney stones can be safely handled with properly selected Homeopathic medicines, care should be taken when the size of the stone is very large and it gets impacted in the ureter leading to hydronephrosis that calls for surgical intervention to prevent kidney damage.

Here is a list of the most effective homeopathic medicines for treating kidney stones:

  1. Argentum nit: This medicine is used when a patient experiences nephralgia due to kidney congestion or from the passage of calculi. Dull aching is experienced at the back of the bladder and the urine is dark, containing blood and deposits of renal epithelium and uric acid. Urine passes little at a time, usually in drops. The patient’s face becomes dark and dry. The urine burns during passage and the urethra feels like it is swollen.

  2. Belladonna: It is used when the kidney stones are accompanied by sharp and shooting pains. Sudden cramps and strains along the ureter during the passing of urine are likely. The patient may feel feverish and excited. Irritation, clutching and cramps are likely to occur as well.

  3. Benzoic acid: This homeopathic medicine is used in case of nephritic colic with offensive urine. The urine is deep red in color and has a strong odor. It may smell cadaverous and putrid. The urine is thick and water like clear in an alternative way. The patient usually feels better when the urine is thick and profuse.

  4. Berberis: This is another effective homeopathic medicine for kidney stones. It is used when there is shooting pain radiating from a point. The patient may be unable to move or even sit on his painful side. The pain may run up to the kidneys or down to the bladder as well. Little calculi with pin heads may develop in the pelvis. Berberis is efficient in giving relief to such pain. The patient may also experience burning and soreness in the kidney along with severe distress. The urine is dark and turbid in nature with copious sediment and urine flow becomes slow. There is an increased urge for urination.

You should consult a homeopathic practitioner if you experience any symptom of kidney stones. Based on its severity and symptoms, he will be able to prescribe you the best homeopathic medicines for your condition.

Ankylosing Spondylitis - Top Homeopathy Remedies For It!

Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Ankylosing Spondylitis - Top Homeopathy Remedies For It!

The backbone (spine) has smooth movement with smooth intervertebral disks. However, this fluid movement can be limited due to arthritis, which can happen due to many reasons – genetic to age to injury to infection to tumors. The lower back has two sets of spinal disks – sacral and iliac. This sacroiliac region has an elastic vertebral tissue. This could be gradually replaced with hard bone, which can cause fusion between the disks. Such a condition is known as ankylosing spondylitis (fusing disk spaces), which is a type of arthritis.

The typical symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are morning pain and stiffness in the low back and upper buttocks, which gradually decrease as the day goes by. The symptoms usually start and continue to gradually worsen over a period of 3 to 6 months. In severe cases, there could be spinal fractures, but in most cases, pain, stiffness and reduced movement are the main complaints.

Why homeopathy for AS (Ankylosing spondylitis)?

Major benefits of homeopathy could be summarized as under:

  1. It addresses altered immune system, treating the roots of this autoimmune disease.

  2. It helps in pain control without side effects.

  3. It aims at disease control.

  4. It is absolutely safe even if used for a long time.

Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of individual case evaluation by taking into account patient’s genetic, immunological and psychological parameters. It is safe and effective as a long-term therapy. It reduces pain, improves mobility and most importantly, controls the disease. It has no adverse effects.

Homeopathy helps AS patients by acting on the immune system, which is usually overactive in these people. Depending on the presenting symptoms, the doctor will prescribe a customized regimen for the patient.

  1. Rhus Tox: This is the first medicine of choice when the patient experiences sacral/lumbar area pain that is worse at rest, with sitting, or after a period of inactivity. The pain radiates down the legs to the foot. Walking or any other activity/motion provides relief from the pain.

  2. Aesculus: This is indicated in patients who have extremely painful and stiff low back and hips. The pain is a constant ache and there is discomfort with trying to rise from a seat, stooping, and walking, where greater effort is required. There is a feeling that the legs would give way, adding to resistance while walking.

  3. Kalmia: This is used in patients where the back pain and stiffness are accompanied by a warm, numb, and prickly sensation. Low back pain and neck pain is associated with a burning sensation. The pain appears in sudden bursts in the early parts of the night and travels down the arm or up into the scapula.

  4. Kali Carb: This is indicated where there is extreme weakness along with AS symptoms of pain and stiffness in the lumbosacral back area. The patient feels like he is going through a paralytic attack and must lie down to rest. This is a feeling similar to a broken back, and can extend up into the neck or down to the legs. The symptoms are more severe in the early morning hours. Changing positions in the bed worsens the pain.

If you or someone else is suffering from AS symptoms, give homeopathy a try.

Eczema - Can Homeopathy Fully Cure It?

Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Eczema - Can Homeopathy Fully Cure It?

Eczema is the common term for the skin condition known as Dermatitis, which is characterized by inflammation of the skin. There are various reasons behind eczema but the most common one is allergy. The skin condition is known to be triggered by some underlying allergy. Other factors include genetics and a weak immune system. A weak immune system tends to overreact while dealing with an allergy. This overreaction leads to eczema or dermatitis.


The symptoms of eczema include redness of skin, constant itching of the affected areas, scaling and thickening of the affected area. In most cases, the itching becomes so intense that the patient continues to scratch the skin until it starts to bleed. In more extreme cases of eczema, a thick leathery covering is formed over the skin or sometimes, the affected areas start to ooze. But this happens only when the condition remains untreated for a long time, so no need to worry.

Role of Homeopathy in Curing Eczema:

In most cases of eczema or dermatitis, the patients usually go for a skin specialist, who prescribes a combination of skin ointments or creams and a course of medicines to contain the itch and treat the underlying allergy that causes the skin condition in the first place. However, such course of treatment focuses on containing the problem and making it manageable, rather than curing it completely.

Now, the homeopathic line of treatment focuses on curing the problem at its roots rather than temporarily suppressing it, only to erupt at a later date. The main cause behind the onset of eczema is an overreacting immune system. Homeopathic treatment focuses on curing the problems in the immune system by strengthening it, rather than suppressing the symptoms.

In Homeopathy, the stress is on improving the poor or the weak immune system. Allergy is the manifestation of a hyperactive immunity. Therefore instead of just treating the symptoms of the allergy, Homeopathy goes to the very basic cause of the problem and sets right the immune system. Once the immunity is in order and stops over reacting to ordinary stimuli, the allergy is cured. This is where Homeopathy has an edge over Allopathy. During Homeopathy treatment of eczema, allergy is cured by strengthening the immune system and the symptoms subside on their own. At the same time, it needs to be understood that this is purely natural eczema treatment. No steroids or anti allergic medicines are used. The immunity is strengthened by Homeopathy instead of being suppressed as happens with allopathic treatment.

Some common homeopathic medicines used to cure eczema or dermatitis include:

1. Graphites

2. Hepar Sulph

3. Sulphur

4. Mezereum

5. Dulcamara
