Living Healthy Despite Pollution!

MD- Homoeopathy
Living Healthy Despite Pollution!

Living healthy despite pollution

Polluted air and water have harmful effects on the human body; however, awareness and medical treatment can help in living healthy.

With our negligence and irresponsible behavior we have severely polluted our environment; now it kills about 90 lac people per year. One in every eight deaths is due to air pollution in India, as per a 2017 record. According to a WHO study conducted in 2017, over one lac children died in India due to air pollution. An assessment in 2015 revealed that 80% of the surface water was contaminated. We create these problems, and we face the consequences. However, awareness, proper healthcare and hygiene can resolve the issues.

Air Pollution

Air surrounding us consists of dust, smoke and chemicals and is a pathway towards different diseases. Respiratory tract infections and irritation, bronchial asthma, ischaemic heart disease, stroke etc., are caused due to air pollution. Covering our nose and mouth with a handkerchief isn’t enough anymore! At times we develop breathlessness, cough and feel feverish; homeopathy has a wide range of medicines to help you with such conditions.

A six-year-old boy complained about a cough and fever when he came to my clinic. A cough was triggered by exposure to vehicular smoke. For both, his cough and fever, I prescribed Aconite 200 CH and suggested a protein-rich diet to support the medicines. After the symptoms reduced, I prescribed Calc-p 30CH to ensure that its symptoms do not reoccur.

Along with smoke and dust, sprays, perfumes or chemicals like gulal too, can result in breathlessness, wheezing and aggravated asthma, if the person is sensitive. Six pills of Ipecac 30CH, given every hour for five doses as soon as patient experiences breathing difficulty provides great relief in such cases. There are other remedies too based on more detailed case history.

A sixteen-year-old girl had a history of suffering from frequent breathlessness, especially during the Ganesh Chaturthi processions. I prescribed her Ipecac 30CH, every half hour for two hours and monitored at our clinic for a day. It resulted in reduced breathlessness immediately after the second dose. Even now, she carries a bottle of Ipecac 30CH and follows the prescribed dosage to get relief in case of emergencies.

Air pollution also affects other organs besides the respiratory system and lungs; we cannot ignore eye irritation and allergies that may later worsen. People allergic to dust particles, kilns smoke, perfumes and sprays may develop an allergic cough and cold. Homeopathy works wonders with such allergic cough and cold. A lady, who came for her treatment regarding her continuous sneezing and acrid, watery nasal discharge, was suffering from allergies. She was allergic to perfumes, detergents and house dust. She was prescribed Natrum–Mur 200CH, and after one year of regular treatment, she was symptom-free.

Another issue is eye irritation or redness of the eye. Homeopathic medicine like Euphrasia 30CH along with Euphrasia eye drops can be used to cure eye irritation and redness. A three-year-old girl faced itchy eyes and eye redness. For this, she was prescribed Sulphur 30CH, and a follow up after two weeks relieved her of health issue.

Water pollution

We all know it is advisable to drink purified or boiled water. Water contains microbes, pathogens and chemicals which lead to water pollution. Diarrhoea, hepatitis A and E, typhoid, cholera, roundworm and threadworm infestation in the stomach, are caused due to drinking polluted water. Along with these, arsenic poisoning, which leads to diarrhea, dehydration and exhaustion, is another hazard of consuming contaminated water. Prolonged exposure to arsenic poisoning can also lead to bladder and skin cancer. A host of skin diseases are also caused by coming in contact with polluted water.

People, who suffer from hepatitis A, should follow a low-fat diet. A person suffering from hepatitis may feel tired and nauseatic. Homeopathic medicines like Card-Mar, Chelidonium, Chionanthus, Lycopodium help with such symptoms. Remember, a bit of hygiene like regularly washing hands before consuming food or water and drinking boiled, or purified water can prevent Hepatitis A. In case of typhoid, homeopathic medicines such as Baptisia, Arnica, and Muriatic acid are useful. Even after treatment, if the typhoid symptoms like constipation, vomiting and headache continue, Bryonia or Phos-acid could be prescribed to help the patients.

A 34-year-old lady complained of nausea and uneasiness while consuming food. She was diagnosed with jaundice after examination. After prescribing her Lycopodium for a week, she got rid of nausea and uneasy feeling. She was put on a maintenance dose to improve her liver function as well.

A 30-year-old man suffering from fever and extreme weakness visited my clinic. The tests revealed typhoid. I prescribed him Muriatic acid 200CH; however, body pain persisted. I advised him to follow a light, more liquid-diet. In the next ten days, he was symptom-free.

Pollution is now inevitable; homeopathy can help you deal with pollution-related ailments and help you lead a healthy life.

Homeopathic Treatment For Diabetes!

Homeopathic Treatment For Diabetes!

Diabetes is basically a disorder of the metabolism causing excessive thirst and the production of large amounts of urine. To further elaborate one need to understand the role of insulin in the body. While eating, the body turns food into sugar or glucose. At that time pancreas is supposed to produce the right amount of insulin to move the glucose from our blood into our cells. In diabetics, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the body cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. Due to this, glucose levels rise in the blood, floods into the urine and passes out of the body, making the body lose its main source of fuel. Diabetes is of many types, but the most common is Type 1 and Type 2.

How to treat Diabetes:

Controlling blood sugar level is the major goal of diabetes treatment, in order to prevent complications of the disease. Treatment may be in Allopathy or Homeopathy, conventional medicine often uses insulin itself in the treatment of diabetes. Since this is kind of replacement, so diabetes becomes a life-long disease. Homeopathy can be used effectively in the treatment. Let’s see how diabetes can be worked with Homeopathy.

Diabetes & Homeopathy

In homeopathy, the main focus is on functioning of the pancreas in efficient insulin production. There are specific medicines which are used effectively in the treatment of all the stages of the diseases.

Homeopathic treatment can help improve the general health of a person with diabetes:

  1. If a person with diabetes is in good health, his or her insulin requirements will be steady and the blood glucose well controlled at the same time.

  2. If the general health is poor, it can be very difficult to achieve good control.  

Homeopaths resort to different approaches towards diabetes Management of Blood Sugar. First is when the blood sugar level is very high, the priority is to control it and there are homeopathic remedies that could reduce the sugar. The commonly used remedies are Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid etc. These are classical homeopathic remedies.

Depending on the level of the blood sugar and the requirement of the patient, doses are given with doctor’s consultation. It’s a holistic approach in medicine. This treats the patient taking into consideration the mental, emotional and physical peculiarities of the person who is affected with this state. In this, it is considered that the disease is a mere deviation in life force and hence all the efforts are to correct this disorder. The treatment will be to bring into balance the various systems involved in diabetes, for example, pancreas, hormones, and your immune system. Treatment will again be different if you have other ailments along with diabetes.

Homeopathy regards health as a state of balancing the equilibrium of the life force. Whatever treatment is taken it’s always advisable to be in regular touch with the doctor and keep sharing the health status with the doctor.

Gestational Diabetes - How Can We Manage It?

Gestational Diabetes - How Can We Manage It?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.


1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.

2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.

3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.

4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.

5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan.

Postmenopausal Bleeding Normal - Is It Normal?

Postmenopausal Bleeding Normal - Is It Normal?

Most women attain menopause between the ages of late 40s and early 60s, the average age being about 51. This is an important milestone in a women's gynecological history. One major change is altered female hormone levels, and this leads to a lot of physiological changes. From hot flashes to mood swings, there is also increased predisposition to osteoporosis and uterine cancer.

If you have not had your menstrual cycles for close to 12 months, chances are you are into menopause. So, that means absolutely no vaginal bleeding anymore whatsoever. However, if you experience bleeding, even spotting, be on the alert. It is not normal and needs to be examined, and if required, diagnosed and treated.

Postmenopausal bleeding or PMB, as it is popularly called, can be due to a variety of reasons. While it could be something as trivial as inflammation of the uterine or vaginal lining, it could also be an indication of more severe issues like cancer.

  • Atrophic vaginitis: Decreasing hormonal levels lead to increased dryness and therefore inflammation of the vaginal and uterine tissue. This is one of the common causes of bleeding after menopause.
  • Endometrial atrophy: Also caused by lower hormone levels, the lining of the body of the uterus gradually thins down and can get inflamed.
  • Polyps: Noncancerous growths in the uterus, cervix, vulva, or vagina can also lead to bleeding.
  • Infections: General infection of any area along the uterine tract could lead to occasional bleeding.
  • Cancers: Though only 1 in 10 PMB cases turn out to be cancers, the prognosis improves with early diagnosis and intervention.

Diagnosis: As repeated above, reach out to your doctor if you notice postmenopausal bleeding. Diagnostic methods could include the following:

  1. Physical examination
  2. Transvaginal ultrasound
  3. Endometrial biopsy
  4. Hysteroscopy
  5. Dilatation and Curettage

Treatment: Needless to say, this would depend on the diagnosis. For very minor cases with diagnosis like altered hormone levels, no treatment may be required other than modification of the hormone replacement therapy. For endometrial atrophy and atrophic vaginitis, use of estrogen creams and pessaries would be sufficient. Polyps would require removal followed by cauterization (application of slight heat) to stop the bleeding.

Cancer: This would depend on the type and location and require a combination of chemotherapy and surgery.  Removal of the uterus also may be required in some cases. So, if you have had bleeding of any sort after a year of menopause, do not ignore it.
