Hi, as I understand, you have allergy/ motion sickness. Couple of things that you can do to overcome this are as follows: (a) use your right thumb and gently press the inner arm two finger widths down from your wrist crease. Hold it for a couple of minutes and release. It shall help get over the nauseatic feel. (b) smell fresh lemons when you get that nausea/ vomiting sensation during the journey. (c) take ginger/ peppermint tea before you get on the journey. (d) do not travel empty stomach. (e) do not attempt studying or looking at nearby things while the vehicle is in motion. (f) try taking a seat either in the front or in the middle at most. Avoid back seats till you get adjusted. (g) visualize pleasant things and distract your mind from negativities. Listen to some light soothing music when you get on the vehicle. (h) as regards your allergy issues, first and foremost try avoiding dust/ other allergens that you are sensitive to. Avoid moving in the sun especially if it causes allergy. (i) take 10 ml of bresol twice daily, after food, for 10 days. Then after, you can take a cup of warm water to which 1/4 tsp of fresh turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp lemon and a tsp of fresh honey is added, twice daily after food for the next 3 weeks or till your allergy issue improves. I hope the above-mentioned steps shall help alleviate your issues/ symptoms.

Immunity - Homeopathic Ways to Boost it

Immunity - Homeopathic Ways to Boost it

Our body’s immune system not only determines our general well-being, but also prevents the outbreak of different health conditions and diseases. The immune system protects us from fatal diseases and helps in the repair and rejuvenation of damaged or infected cells.

Immunity can be boosted in several ways and homeopathic medicines are very effective for this purpose.  There are many homeopathic medicines, which treat all kinds of health problems, overcome them and improve immunity so that recurrence is prohibited. Here are some top homeopathy medicines, which boost body immunity, along with the situations when they are applicable:

  1. Thuya Occidentalis: This homeopathic medicine is very effective for treating several ailments and boosts immunity as a result. It is used for treating tumors, sinusitis, tonsillitis, bronchitis and myriad types of ear infections.

  2. Baptisia Tinctoria: This provides a high dose of fiber to the body which helps in enhancing immunity. The central nervous system is also treated with this medicine along with conditions, such as malignant sore throat, diphtheria, scarlet fever and pneumonia. Body inflammations, cerebrospinal meningitis, tumors, ulcers and different types of cancer can be treated with this medicine.

  3. Echinacea Angustifolia: This is another popular homeopathic medicine, which strengthens the overall immune system. It effectively helps in fighting different infections and inflammatory conditions.

  4. Echinacea Purpurea: This homeopathic medicine helps in boosting the overall immune system of the body. It is very powerful and effective in fighting and eliminating all types of infections caused due to bacteria and virus.

  5. Apis Mellifica: This homeopathic medicine is used in the treatment of various health conditions. It deals with edema, conjunctivitis, problems in the trachea and pharynx. Ear infections and conditions which occur in the kidney and bladder are also treated with this medicine. It treats several ovarian disorders too.

  6. Gelsemium Sempervirens: This medicine helps in relieving migraines. It helps the occipital nerves and treats meningitis, drooping eyelids, paralysis and myocardial infarction. Problems related to the peripheral nervous system and menstruation are also treated with the same.

  7. Ginseng: It is used to treat all types of deficiency diseases. This medicine helps in strengthening the lungs and provides nourishment to body fluids.  The peripheral nerves are relaxed and heart weakening diseases are treated. Sexual organs are stimulated by this medicine too, which leads to increased libido.

Homeopathy is an excellent way to augment the immunity of the body, without worrying about side effects. Homeopathic medicines can eliminate a disease gradually from its roots, and prevent recurrence too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

The immunity provided by booster dose last for 2-3 years. Since you have taken booster dose recently, you don't have to take any arv now. If you are at risk of frequent dog bite, I advice you to take one booster dose every year and and two more doses at 3-5 year as a post exposure exposure vaccine. Consult physician for further advice.

What are the reasons for asthma. Does it can be caused with pollution and stress. Is their any complete cure for asthma.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Asthma is characterized by recurrent episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Sputum may be produced from the lung by coughing but is often hard to bring up. Symptoms are usually worse at night and in the early morning or in response to exercise or cold air. Some people with asthma rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, whereas others may have marked and persistent symptoms. Pollution, dust particles, cold weather, sudden variation of temperature, smoking and of course stress can be the reason to trigger it off. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

I am suffering from dust allergy. Is there any possibility of getting attacked by asthma in the near by future? What are all the precautions to be taken? Does asthma can be cured? Are there any medicines to cure dust allergy. I would like to know about the surgeries available for dust allergy and asthma. Please guide me and answer my queries.

ENT Specialist, Kolkata
Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis will develop Asthma if not treated. But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust. Active treatment of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve quality of life.

Side effects of asthma medicines.

If you use preventer medicine there is a small risk of having a sore tongue, sore throat, hoarseness of the voice and a mouth infection called thrush. To help prevent these side effects, rinse your mouth out and brush your teeth after using your preventer inhaler. Using a spacer will also help reduce the possibility of thrush.

Children should be monitored closely if they are taking preventer medicines - especially for growth.

It is possible that long-term and high-dose use of preventer medicines (inhaled steroids) may cause some other side effects (See 'Side effects of long-term use of steroid tablets, below). That is why your doctor and asthma nurse will try to keep you on the lowest dose to control your symptoms.

Several studies have suggested the possibility of a very slight increased risk of the development of cataracts in elderly people who have used inhaled steroids. As with use of all medicines, careful attention needs to be paid to the risk versus benefit argument and it's as likely that any risk can be reduced by always using the lowest possible dose of medication to control the condition.
Side effects of steroid tablets

Short term use

For a small number of people, a short-term course of steroid tablets, can lower the body's resistance to chickenpox, so you should contact your doctor if you or your child are taking steroid tablets and you/they come into contact with chickenpox. If your doctor thinks you are at risk they can give you an injection to protect you.

Other possible side effects from taking a short course of steroid tablets are mood swings (especially in children) and increased hunger.

There are very few other side effects from taking occasional (three to four) short courses of steroids per year. However it is important to keep the number of courses to a minimum by making sure you are using enough of your other regular inhaled medicines.
Long term use

A small minority of people with severe asthma need to take steroid tablets for a longer period. However, taking steroid tablets regularly, for long periods of time (months or years) can have serious side effects for some people.

For these reasons your doctor and asthma nurse will always try to prescribe the smallest possible dose of daily steroid tablets. It is very important that you continue to take your other asthma treatments regularly to keep the need for steroid tablets to a minimum.

If you have severe asthma and you have been prescribed long-term steroid tablets your doctor and asthma nurse should discuss and consult with you about the risk of side effects against the benefits of controlling your asthma symptoms (if untreated, severe asthma can lead to permanent lung damage).

The possible side effects of long-term use of steroid tablets are:

Fattened face (moon face)

Feeling hungry and wanting to eat more (this extra eating can lead to weight gain)

Feeling 'hyped up' and over active with difficulty sleeping

Feeling depressed or having sudden mood swings

Heartburn and indigestion

Bruising easily

Brittle bones (osteoporosis)

Altering diabetic control or uncovering a tendency to diabetes

Chickenpox may be more serious

Risk of cataract increases

Steroid tablets do not have any side effects that damage the heart.
What can I do about side effects of steroid tablets?

Most importantly, don't smoke. If you smoke, bone thinning side effects are worse. Your general asthma control will also be helped if no one in your household smokes. If your partner gives up smoking, it may mean you can cut down on your dose of steroid tablet.

Taking steroid tablets first thing in the morning may have some benefit in decreasing side effects.

People who need to take regular steroid tablets can use daily calcium supplements, although there is no clear scientific evidence to prove that these are useful.

Weight-bearing exercise, such as walking for 20 minutes each day will help protect against the bone thinning effect of long-term steroids.

Vaccination for Newborns and Adults

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Vaccination for Newborns and Adults

The immune system is extremely important in an individual's system. A strong immune system helps to combat the invasion of foreign particles and consequently resists the diseases.  Vaccination in such a context becomes imperative as it strengthens an individual's immunity. In vaccination, antigens or germs are given in very small doses. They stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies to fight against that particular infection. Vaccinations are provided to both children and adults to protect them from a number of diseases.  However, different vaccinations are provided in different ages according to the susceptibility to diseases.

Some of the vaccinations that are provided to newborns are:

1. Hepatitis B vaccine: This vaccination is given in order to prevent the child from having Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a liver disease that if persists can lead to liver failure or even liver cancer. This vaccine must be injected immediately after the birth of the baby. The first dose must be followed by administering a second dose within a span of a month or two. 

2. Rotavirus Vaccine (RV): This vaccine, taken orally, prevents the infant from Rotavirus. This virus causes vomiting and diarrhea in children that often leads to severe dehydration. This vaccine is administered within two to four months of the baby's birth. Sometimes, on doctor's prescription a second dose may be necessary in the sixth month. 

3. Acellular Pertussis Vaccine and Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids: This is a combination of various vaccines that protects the child from tetanus and diphtheria. Newborns are extremely prone to diphtheria that causes fatal illness and sometimes even deaths in children. This vaccination thereby, is extremely important and must be administered within two or four months and must be followed up with secondary doses later under the doctor's supervision. Vaccinations do not end with childhood. In many cases adults too need to be vaccinated against certain diseases. Some of them are:

  • Hepatitis A Vaccine: You can get this vaccination if there is any risk of you suffering from Hepatitis A. Much like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A too is an acute liver disease. This is extremely fatal and is seldom accompanied by any symptoms. 
  • Human Papillomavirus Vaccine: This is a sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical dysplasia in women and men.  The apt age for both men and women for this vaccination differs. Women who are twenty six years of age or younger and men below or at the age of twenty one are most suitable for this vaccination. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
