Why It's Ideal to Treat Insomnia With Homeopathy

Why It's Ideal to Treat Insomnia With Homeopathy

Why it’s ideal to treat insomnia with homeopathy

Insomnia is a mental condition, which is characterized by a difficulty in falling asleep, even when you have the chance to do so. People with insomnia feel dissatisfied with their sleep and usually experience fatigue, low energy, lack of concentration, mood swings and decreased performance at work or at school.

The causes of insomnia include stress, emotional or physical discomfort; environmental factors like noise, light or extreme temperature that interferes with sleep; and depression or anxiety.

The visible symptoms of insomnia are inability to fall asleep no matter what, irritability, depression, lack of concentration and enthusiasm, and distressed stomach and intestine. Complications associated with insomnia can cause psychiatric problems, obesity, increased risk of long-term diseases or conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

Homeopathy is a boon towards treating insomnia.

1. Safety

Homeopathic medication are far safer therefore, it is preferable and highly recommended. It serves invaluably during insomnia and does not involve any side effects.

2. Efficiency

The efficiency of homeopathic medicines in curing the several problems associated with insomnia is unquestionable. Plus, targets at providing long-term cure for insomnia instead of just temporary relief. The approach that homeopathy adopts includes getting at the root cause of the problem, and weeding it out so that there’s never a relapse of your condition.

I am unable to write with my hand from 3 months. If I try to write now it start shaking. Is there any solution for this problem.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
The problem is of recent onset. At this age neuronal disease is unlikely. Hence it may be anxiety or substance use. Stop alcohol if you are abusing. If you have other features of anxiety like dry mouth and throat, excessive sweating, fast heart beat, difficulty breathing, dizziness along with inability to relax and excessive worries then consult a psychiatrist. Mri brain will be helpful to rule out any underlying pathology in brain. Treatment is possible and you will be alright. All the best.

My father is 55 years old and has recently undergone a surgery to remove tumour in the testicular area along with left testicle and lymph nodes. Post biopsy results in the tumour and lymph nodes have detected cancer. All tumour marker tests i.e. LDH, AFP and HCG have shown normal values. Also FNAC test showed normal value prior to the surgery. What should be our next steps in this case? What are the implications and what is the cure/survival rate for testicular cancer?

Hi there. Testicular tumor is a slow growing tumor. Since all markers are negative than its most likely a seminoma. I think you should consult a oncologist for the requirement of chemotherapy. Since lymph nodes were involved than chances of recurrence and prognosis is not that good.

Managing EPILEPSY in WOMEN

Managing EPILEPSY in WOMEN

Epilepsy is a common illness and therefore, we commonly encounter women with epilepsy (WWE), who are either pregnant or contemplating pregnancy. There are a lot of apprehensions and misconceptions regarding managing epilepsy in this group of WWE. Here, I wish to highlight some of the important aspects of managing epilepsy in women who are planning a pregnancy or are currently pregnant.

1. If a woman is seizure-free for at least two years, she can consider withdrawing anti-epileptic drugs (aeds) under the supervision of neurologist, and then plan for pregnancy.

2. If a woman has seizures, it is better to continue aeds during pregnancy, as the risk to the baby is several times higher with seizures, as compared to that with aeds.

3. Sodium valproate has the highest risk to the developing baby, and it should be avoided in pregnancy.

4. Aeds such as levetiracetam, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, topiramate, etc are safe and may be continued during pregnancy.

5. The lowest effective dose of aed should be used.

6. Try to use only a single anti-epileptic drug, if possible.

7. Folic acid vitamin supplements should be used in pregnancy.

8. The dose of anti-epileptic medication may have to be increased during the last three months of pregnancy.

9. Ct scan of the brain should be avoided, as far as possible, during pregnancy, as radiation exposure due to it may harm the baby.

10. Mri brain is reasonably safe for baby, especially after the first three months of pregnancy. So, if needed, it may be performed.

Antibiotics - Can They Stop The Growth Of Brain Cells?

Antibiotics - Can They Stop The Growth Of Brain Cells?

Antibiotics are something which have changed are lives for eternity as well as for the better, to say the very least. With each day that passes, there are greater strides of advancement which are made in the field. Of late, it is said that antibiotics also have the potential to stop new cells in the brain from growing, which is quite a risk when it comes to their usage among people are sick.

Research has found that if the brain of the person under treatment is subject to sustained use of antibiotics, it is true that the brain can lose its functionality for a quicker time than what one would consider to be normal. So it can be said, this usually is not the advisable way to go.

Like most testing practices when it comes to medication, antibiotics which were tested on the brains of the subjects i.e. those of mice had an effect of mitigating their high-level memory. How this happened to be is rather interesting, to say the very least.

How dangerous can antibiotics be?
It is often said that eating right does wonder for a person’s brain. Well, the mice that were not treated with the antibiotics were seen to lose the healthy bacteria present in their stomachs. In addition to this, they lost new brain cells. This led on to them performing worse in mental tests than their peers who had had some antibiotics administered to them on a consistent basis.

Now a cynic may point out that what is seen to be true for mice may really not hold true when it comes to humans being considered. However, if it is taken into due account that a lot of path-breaking research is carried out on mice, there is quite some credence to the results of the study.

To supplement the evidence even further, it was also seen that for mice which were in possession of low levels of monocytes, which are a type of white blood cells. It was seen that there was a great dependency on monocytes for the generation of white blood cells. The part of the brain which is hindered by generating new cells on account of the sustained use of antibiotics is the hippocampus.

Antibiotics are the proverbial shot in the arm which can aid recovery by destroying the threat to a person’s wellness. However, it is to be considered that they are not safe in general as there is collateral damage!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

IM 22 years and im having migraine attacks everyday is due to the computer job or anything else? I have to sit in front of the computer for about 9 hours per day. Please reply as soon as possible.

Hi lybrate user, using computer for long hours can be a possible causation of your migraine attacks. Staring at a computer monitor for hours on end inevitably, put a real strain on your eyes. Working on a computer is more challenging to your eyes than reading a book or piece of paper, because a computer screen also adds the elements of screen contrast, flicker, and glare. Give your eyes a break. Look away from the screen every 20 minutes or so and either gaze out the window or scan the room for about 20 seconds to rest your eyes. Blink often to keep the eyes moist. If eyes are getting overly dry, try using lubricating eyedrops. You can also change the lighting around you to reduce glare on the computer screen. Putting a glare filter over the screen monitor can help protect your eyes. Your wrong posture can also be a cause of your migraines because all factors combined could act as a trigger for your migraines. All these points should help you with your problem. Homoeopathy have a very good scope in treating migraine problems. Good day.
