Some of the most effective home remedies for amyloidosis include the use of resveratrol, germanium, and low-salt foods, as well as lifestyle changes like rest, dietary balance, fruit, high-fiber foods, and omega-3s.
This condition is not only rare, but also very unique, but it unfortunately has no cure, nor any definitive cause. Basically, someone suffering from amyloidosis is unable to properly produce and process proteins in the body. The body accumulates incorrectly folded proteins, which means that the body can’t undo them, nor dissolve them in water, nor recombine them in appropriate or functional ways. As these proteins are distributed throughout the body in their essentially useless form, the specific organ systems and tissues where they are deposited will manifest the symptoms or problems independently. For this reason, there is no definite symptom package for amyloidosis, as every part of the body treats the “amyloids” (inappropriately folded proteins) in different ways.
Some of the most common places that are attacked by amyloidosis are the kidneys, heart, and nervous system, but they can also occur in the digestive tract, the skin, face, eyes, tongue, and a number of other locations in the body. These amyloids disrupt normal function of those systems and organs, sometimes resulting in fatal complications or causing secondary conditions or illnesses due to their negative impact on the system. There are more than a dozen varieties of amyloidosis, so getting an appropriate diagnosis is key, which requires a tissue biopsy. There are no known cures, and even home remedies are rather limited. The best approach is to treat the secondary symptoms and illnesses, keeping the organ systems as strong as possible, while defending against protein malfunctions and deficiencies as much as possible with more standardized, pharmacy-grade treatment.
￼7 surprising home remedies for amyloidosis
Red wine: the early findings in this regard as still inconclusive, but some members of the medical community that have researched amyloidosis have found that the resveratrol, most popularly found in red wine, has some preventative measures against the development and severity of amyloidosis. While resveratrol is considered an allergen to some, it also has many positive health benefits, some of which are as yet unexplained. Its relationship to amyloidosis is similarly uncertain, but the early connections are certainly encouraging, so perhaps adding an extra glass of red wine or two to your weekly intake is a good idea.
Germanium: germanium is a chemical found in germanium plants and other compounds, and early studies have similarly shown a positive preventative effect on amyloidosis and its effects throughout the body. Although these early results have yet to be studied in greater detail or challenged with a wider body of research, this is one of the few successful developments in terms of alternative treatments of preventative measures for amyloidosis.
Low-salt diet: if your doctor thinks that it is a good idea given your other health factors, a low-salt diet has been linked to a slower spread and reduced severity of amyloidosis throughout the body. However, given the delicate nature of your system when amyloidosis is acting on your body, it is essential to monitor your diet carefully and thoroughly discuss any dietary changes with your health specialist.
Rest: this may seem like an obvious remedy, but the strain that amyloidosis puts on your body is intense. Your organ systems must work extra hard just to maintain normal function and proper care, so excessive stress on top of this large workload can exacerbate the condition and cause a faster breakdown of organ and tissue function. You may need to consider major lifestyle changes if you want to slow the condition once you’ve been diagnosed; it could literally add years to your life.
High-fiber foods: considering that the digestive tract is one of the main targets of improperly folded protein deposition, the gastrointestinal system of amyloidosis patients is particularly fragile and prone to damage. Therefore, ensuring that you have a diet high in fiber is essential, because it can facilitate smoother passage and function of the bowels, and also improve nutrient uptake from foods you eat. Anything you can do to boost your bowel health is important, and a high fiber diet should be at the top of that list.
Fruits and vegetables: the high nutrient concentration in fruits and vegetables, particularly those compounds that are beneficial for heart health, like potassium, are important for the prevention and home treatment of amyloidosis. The heart is one of the other prime targets for amyloids, which means that protecting your heart health is crucial if you want to avoid serious complications. Fruits and vegetables, particularly bananas, pineapples, papayas, oranges, spinach, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes, are all great additions to your diet to protect the health of your heart.
Omega-3s: these are also essential dietary elements when suffering from amyloidosis. Commonly found in many types of meat, these beneficial fatty acids, particularly the type found in fish oil, can significantly protect your heart and vascular system, ensuring that your circulatory system remains healthy and functioning properly, while also reducing the chances of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis, which can quicken the complications of amyloidosis in the cardiovascular system. Ad d these to your diet to maximize heart health as much as possible, given the amyloids already threatening it.
A final word of warning: amyloidosis is one of the terrible, inexplicable diseases of our species, and while we have plenty of ideas on its cause, it is still an unsolved mystery. These home remedies are meant as preventative methods or treatments, but not cures. Proper medical attention is essential if you wish to live a longer, happier life with this condition.
Hello doctor, I am 19 weeks pregnant this is my first baby, so I just want to know after how many weeks I can feel baby movement and kicks.
You can eat three to four garlic cloves daily for a if you are having difficulty getting an erection. You can cut that down to three times a week after a month. That is if you start feeling better down there. You can also use grated garlic in your meat to get the desired result but raw garlic cloves work much better.
I have sex problem, I eat everyday unwanted 72, please help me, I have 10 baby, I want to stop baby processing, please help me as soon as possible.
Whenever you peruse through snack options in a store, looking for a fulfilling yet healthy option often turns out to be really challenging. This is where you might consider nuts, such as almonds or walnuts. They are healthy snacking options with rich reserves of protein, fibre, and energy.
However, even in the choice between almonds and walnuts, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind.
- Energy content: Almonds contain 14 grams worth of fat, and 164 calories whereas walnuts contain approximately 18 grams of fat but give 185 calories. Thus, we find that walnuts contain a slightly higher amount of fat than almonds, but provide more energy in the form of calories.
- Protein content: Almonds and walnuts are both protein powerhouses - containing 13% and 9% of protein content respectively. Thus, both these nuts are great sources of protein.
- Mineral content: Both almonds and walnuts are rich in various kinds of minerals. When it comes to Iron, which is essential for muscle health and blood formation, both nuts contain very similar amounts (approx 5%). Almonds pack 19% magnesium - essential for strong bones, compared to the 11% in walnuts. Walnuts, however, have very high amounts of copper (50%) and manganese (54%) which prove to be useful in reducing symptoms of PMS as compared to almonds.
- Fibre content: Fiber,which plays a vital role in completing the process of digestion, is another component that these nuts pack healthy amounts of. Almonds contain 16% fiber whereas walnuts have 8%.
- Vitamin content: While walnuts contain 12% Vitamin B6, compared to the 3% in almonds, the real point of difference between these two highly healthy nuts is in their content of Vitamin E - essential for healthy skin and eyes. Almonds contain almost 48% of it, whereas walnuts contain only about 2% of the same.
Thus, we get a fair idea about the high nutritional content for both these nuts. They are both essential, especially if they can be incorporated into our diets in the correct proportions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

"Men get naughty at 4-0 forty" but for women, the case may be very-very different. By their thirtieth birthday, many women begin complaining of a lowered libido or lack of interest in sex with their partner. This can be quite frustrating for both partners and can lead to a rift in the relationship. Hence, it becomes essential to pay attention to this condition.
The first step to finding a solution to any problem is to understand the factors that trigger it. Some causes for a lowered libido in women are -
Birth Control and Medication: Birth control essentially manipulates the hormone levels in the body. While this may prevent unwanted pregnancies, a lowered libido is a common side effect of birth control medication. Antidepressants also have similar side effects.
Over Working: Working hard is a good thing but too much of a good thing can have a negative effect on your health. In this case, overworking may lead to stress, anxiety, fatigue and burnout. This can lead to a weakened adrenal gland. The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of testosterone and in this way, working too hard can be the reason for women to not enjoy sex as much as they once used to.
Hormonal Changes: With age, every woman faces hormonal changes. This can result in a lack of lubrication making intercourse uncomfortable. Over time, this can lower libido considerably.
Ways to Enhance a Woman's Libido-
A lowered libido isn't something you have to quietly accept. Here are a few ways to enhance a woman's libido.
Go on a date:
Intercourse is as much an emotional exercise as it is a physical one. Cutting back from other responsibilities, work, children etc and spending time alone with your partner can help you emotionally reconnect with him.
Meditation can help calm the mind and reduce stress. This, in turn, will enhance the production of testosterone in the adrenal glands and thereby enhance libido. Meditation can also help you disconnect from worries and tensions that may be weighing you down.
When it comes to a diminished libido, medication may be an effective form of treatment, but it must be tailored to the individual. While estrogen skin creams may be beneficial for some women, others may benefit from testosterone supplements. A few antidepressants can also enhance a woman's libido by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine levels. Viagra can also help enhance a woman's libido especially in cases where the lowered libido was caused by antidepressants.

Scope of Homoeopathy in PCOD:
Homeopathic approach towards management of PCOD is constitutional, taking into account the presenting complaints along with physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. It involves prescribing “Constitutional Medicine”, which is also capable for working on the Ovaries and the entire Endocrine system. The treatment logic varies depending on the presence of any genetic predisposition, physical makeup (obesity), peculiarities of your menstrual, etc. In Homoeopathy, medicines are given to induce ovulation in a natural way, which would improve and regularize your menstrual cycle and also helps in the prevention or minimization of cyst formation.
