Headache - How Homeopathy Helps to Manage it?

Homeopath, Surat
Headache - How Homeopathy Helps to Manage it?

Homeopathy as a branch of medicine has evolved drastically over the years. Unlike others, homeopathy's greatest advantage is its complete lack of side effects and its ability to treat a myriad of diseases and ailments. One of the most common causes of concern for most people is a nagging perpetual headache. Over the years, homeopathy has developed various medicines to confront and treat different kinds of headaches.

Some of the different kinds of headaches and homeopathic remedies associated with them are:

  1. Throbbing and excruciating pain in the head: In case you are suffering from constant throbbing (or excruciating) pain with the agony occurring mostly in the front and right side of the head, Belladona is the most trusted medicine you must go for. Belladona works wonders in treating shooting pains that mostly aggravate through the course of the day. One of the most important advantages of Belladona is its ability to relieve you of the pain for a long time, with very less chance of any recurrence. 
  2. Headache as a result of hangover or problems in digestionConsumption of excessive alcohol or problems in digestion and constipation also contribute to a throbbing headache located mostly over one of the eyes. In such a scenario, the homeopathic medicine called Nux Vomica is extremely effective. This treats the headache emerging from the host of issues and also alleviates the lingering sensation of nausea and giddiness that are often accompanied with the pain.
  3. Severe headaches that result in vomiting: Sometimes, the pain may be located on the top of the head with its severity increasing with the advancement of the day. In case you are suffering from such a headache, chances are vomiting may follow as a result of the intensity. In such a situation, a medicine called Sanguinaria should be administered. The medicine works best if you lie down after having it. 
  4. Headache emerging from partial blindness: Headaches and vision are inextricably related. Therefore, in case you are suffering from partial blindness or any other visual disorder, chances are that a severe headache will soon follow suit. In such a situation, you could also suffer from nausea and tendencies of vomiting. The homeopathic medicine called Iris is extremely beneficial in reducing the intensity of such headaches. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Looks like I have got piles. It's in initial stage. Because of hard stool. I loose few drops of bloods how can I treat this?

BHMS
Homeopath, Greater Noida
Hi lybrate user, you have to take some first hand precautions to prevent your problem from further increasing. 1. Drink plenty of water. And develop habit of drinking a glass or two of warm water first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up. 2. Increase fibrous food in your diet. Which include oats, brown rice, wholewheat products, veggies and fruits (the crunchier the better). 3. Avoid fried and spicy food as they may aggravate your troubles. 4. If you're a non-vegetarian, cut down your consumption of red meat. White meat is considered a healthier option. These precautions if well taken will help you cope up with your problem if it's in initial state. But nonetheless if you are not satisfied you can always consult any doctor here on lybrate or anywhere for medications. Homoeopathy itself offers a wide range of medicines for piles and that too without any side-effects. Have a good day.

I have a regular problem of acidity. It reduces if I take pantadoc. I mean I can eat anything while I am on pantadoc no matter how spicy it will be:). Can I take pantadoc on daily basis? is there any side effects?

M.H.C.T.C
Oncologist, Pune
Hi, 1-thnks for the query-2-after going through your issue indepth, I advise to interact to my inbox-for private consultation-as your problem-is long-standing and regular. 3-its wrong to continue drug like this-if there is no relief after short term treats, as this causes-sever side-effects if taken for long time-when it is not relieving the basic cause of acidity. 4-hence you need 2-3 interactions to fix the cause of the acidity, after which I would plan the right treats for you.

Homoeopathic medicine FOLLICLEAN ( WELLMAN) it contain 2 bottles...INTERNAL and EXTERNAL INTERNAL FOLLICLEAN DROPS.....drink 15 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily EXTERNAL FOLLICLEAN DROPS....Apply 15-20 drops in any oil preferably HAIR GROWTH OIL ( WILMAR SCHWABE INDIA) on roots of hairs with your fingers.No brisssssk massaging required.Leave overnight nd wash next day with MONTANA SHAMPOO ( SBL) Egg white works well in order to lighten the pimple marks and the pimple scars. Take a fresh egg and break the egg, separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Apply this egg white on the pimple marks. After 10-15 minutes, wash with the cold water. Baking Soda Take some baking soda. Mix some water with the baking soda and apply this mixture on the pimple marks. Baking soda serves as an agent that carries out micro dermabrasion on the skin and helps to clear the pimple marks on the face and body. Tomatoes Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin A, which helps nourish the dead skin while rejuvenating it. Vitamin A helps by healing the skin and by helping facilitate quick growth of the skin while removing the scars. Using tomatoes to help heal the scars on the skin is not a lengthy process, but it is rather simple. Just take a tomato, slice it and make it into a pulp. Apply the pulp on the face and leave it on for twenty minutes’ time. Then, wash it off with some warm water. You could also mix cucumbers with it. Make a paste out of all of cucumbers and tomatoes and apply as a face mask. Leave it on for half an hour and wash it with some cool water. Follow this method two days at a time every week and observe the results.

Dear Lybrate user. Your information is wrong. You will feel tired after doing masturbation mainly because your masturbation is a physical exercise. After any physical exercise, you need to take rest. In this case it is masturbation. You take rest for a night. Then you can go for any other exercise. Don't worry about false rumors. Take care.

I have pain in my penis when doing toilet I drink lots of water but not relief. What can I do?
Urethritis is the medical terms for inflammation of the urethra, which is a common cause of penile burning sensation. Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder) or prostatitis (prostate inflammation) can also be associated with a burning sensation in the genitals. Sexually transmitted diseases are examples of infections that can cause penile burning sensation. These diseases include herpes, genital warts (human papillomavirus infection), syphilis (sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria), chlamydia, or gonorrhea. Homoepathic treatment cures it without side effects.
