Parents must be truthful to their children and must fulfill any promise made to them.For example you may take your child to the doctor for vaccination,tell him that he would be vaccinated and it is very important to prevent the disease .one injection will prevent many injections.

Migraine and Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai

Migraine is a complex disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of a headache, most often unilateral and in some cases associated with visual or sensory symptoms collectively known as an aura that arise most often before the head pain but that may occur during or afterward . Migraine is most common in women and has a strong genetic component.

Signs and symptoms

Typical symptoms of migraine include the following:

1.Throbbing or a pulsatile headache, with moderate to severe pain that intensifies with movement or physical activity

2.Unilateral and localized pain in the frontotemporal and ocular area but the pain may be felt anywhere around the head or neck

3.Pain builds up over a period of 1-2 hours, progressing posteriorly and becoming diffuse

4.Headache lasts 4-72 hours

5.Nausea (80%) and vomiting (50%), including anorexia and food intolerance, and light-headedness

6.Sensitivity to light and sound


Features of migraine aura are as follows:

1.May precede or accompany the headache phase or may occur in isolation

2.Usually develops over 5-20 minutes and lasts less than 60 minutes

3.Most commonly visual but can be sensory, motor, or any combination of these

4.Visual symptoms may be positive or negative

5.The most common positive visual phenomenon is the scintillating scotoma, an arc or band of absent vision with a shimmering or glittering zigzag border

Physical findings during a migraine headache may include the following:

*Cranial/cervical muscle tenderness
*Horner syndrome (ie, relative miosis with 1-2 mm of ptosis on the same side as the headache)
*Conjunctival injection
*Tachycardia or bradycardia
*Hypertension or hypotension
*Hemisensory or hemiparetic neurologic deficits (ie, complicated migraine)
*Adie-type pupil (ie, poor light reactivity, with near dissociation from light)

Homoeopathic constitutional treatment cures this malady completely since it goes to the root of the disease and removes this tendency permanently.

Some of Homoeopathic remedies used for treating migraine are Belladonna,Spigelia,Sanguinaria,Glonoine,Natrum mur,Phosphorus, Tuberculinum, Iris versicolor,medicine should be strictly selected based on symptom similarity only to get permanent cure.

Hello, Your bust size will gradually get in shape once your milk production will be seized completely. Take up walking and eat homecooked meals with lots of water throughout the day. Remain stress free and sleep for atleast 7 hours in the night.

Cervical Cancer - Causes and Testing for Diagnosis

Cervical Cancer - Causes and Testing for Diagnosis

What causes cervical Cancer?

Genital Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a very common virus in both men and women that can lead to the development of genital warts, abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer.

This virus can cause normal cells on your cervix (Know more about Cervix Infection) to turn abnormal. Over many years, abnormal cells can turn into cancer if they are not found and treated by your doctor. It can take 10 to 15 years (or more) for cells to change from normal to abnormal, and then into cancer. Abnormal cells are sometimes called 'pre cancer ' because they are not normal, but they are not yet cancer.

You cannot see or feel HPV or these cell changes on your cervix. Screening tests help us to look for these changes or for abnormal cells (Learn more about sexually transmitted diseases)

How is HPV spread?

HPV is transmitted during genital skin to-skin sexual contact. This includes vaginal or anal sex and possibly oral sex.A person can get HPV even if years have passed since he or she had sex. They will never know it because HPV usually has no signs and symptoms.

In most cases, HPV goes away within two years, without causing any health problems. It is thought that the immune system  fights off HPV infection naturally

What screening tests exist for HPV- related diseases?

Cervical Cancer: Cervical cancer can be detected with routine Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) and follow-up of abnormal results. The Pap test can find abnormal cells on the cervix so that they can be removed before cancer develops.    Abnormal cells often become normal over time, but can sometimes turn into cancer. These cells can usually be treated, depending on their severity and on the woman's age, past medical history, and other test results.

An HPV DNA test, which can find certain HPV types on a woman's cervix, may also be used with a Pap test in certain cases (called co-testing). The HPV-DNA test is done to determine if you are infected with one of the high-risk types or if your doctor finds certain type of abnormal Pap test result.

Even women who were vaccinated when they were younger need regular cervical cancer screening because the vaccines do not protect against all cervical cancer strains.

Is there a treatment for HPV or related problems?

HPV vaccination could prevent most cancers and other diseases caused by HPV. There is no treatment for the virus itself, but there are treatments for the problems that HPV can cause:

Visible genital warts may remain the same, grow more in number, or go away on their own. The warts can be treated when they appear.

Abnormal cervical cells (found on a Pap test) often become normal over time, but they can sometimes turn into cancer. If they remain abnormal, these cells can usually be treated to prevent cervical cancer from developing. This may depend on the severity of the cell changes, the woman's age , past medical history, and other test results. It is critical to follow up with testing and treatment, as recommended by a doctor.

Post detection of ovarian cancer the doctors , depending on your cancer stage can recommend the treatment more- surgery, medical treatment, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

Breastfeeding releases the prolactin hormones into a mother's system because of which a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills her and she benefits emotionally and physically from it.

My son is 15 months old He is suffering in Krabbe disease, is this disease is curable what we do Pls. Suggest me.

BHMS
Homeopath, Ranchi
Dear parent Although there is no cure for Krabbe disease is known, bone marrow transplantation has been shown to benefit cases early in the course of the disease. Generally, treatment for the disorder is symptomatic and supportive. Physical therapy may help maintain or increase muscle tone and circulation. Cord blood transplants have been successful in stopping the disease as long as they are given before overt symptoms appear. All the best.

This child is habitual of eating clay, cemented layer or wall etc for last 2-3 months. please help to get rid of this bad habit.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Nutrition Certification,Registered Dietitian
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
It’s a common concern to watch young kids eat mud, chalks, plaster from wall, sand and other such dirt or rather ‘inedible items’. 1. Keep you home spic and span and free of dust and dirt. 2. Keep all sand, dust, clay and soil related items at a greter height. 3. Also teach your kids to wash their hands and mouth after playing with the dirt 4. Give a balanced diet to your child with increased proportion of calcium, iron and zinc. These can be obtained from meat (esp. Read meat), liver, eggs, seafood, grains, cereals, and legumes and dairy products. Consult your pediatrician, who may prescribe supplements.

My baby is 10 week old. I have given 1st dose of pentavac along with IPV at 6 week. Now 2nd dose of Pentavac is due. Can I switch to Pentaxim? As suggested by My pediatrician.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
No, I wouldn't advice. It's not worthwhile. Pentavac though painful a bit, offers better immune response. IAP advises DTwP (pentavac) for primary immunization and DTaP (pentaxim) as a booster dose at 18 months.
