Unable To Sleep - Know Which Homeopathic Remedies Can Be Of Help!

Sleep apnea is a disorder that affects nighttime breathing and is caused by either a malfunction in the brain that temporarily stops sending signals to the muscles that control breathing, or by an obstruction in the airway

Causes of Sleep Apnea-
It occurs when muscles in the back of your throat relax, tonsillitis, adenoids, obesity, middle-aged, heart disease, stroke, sedative medicines, large neck circumference, large tongue etc.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea-

  1. Feeling of excessively sleepy during a day
  2. Lack concentration and low memory status
  3. Depression
  4. Short temperament
  5. Irritability
  6. Hyperactive children
  7. Leg swelling
  8. Impotency in males
  9. Insomnia
  10. Frequent waking up for urination in night
  11. Tiresome feeling in morning

Homeopathic  Treatment of Sleep Apnea-
Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering.

The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat sleep apnoea but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for sleep apnoea treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Some of the most common homeopathic medicines for Sleep Apnea are-

  1. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum album is often prescribed for individuals who have breathing difficulties at night and is considered for people with a fearful, tense and agitated response to illness. 
  2. Lachesis: Lachesis is a remedy prescribed for conditions that worsen at night. This medicine is designed for people who are typically fearful and anxious, but also prone to jealousy and excessive talking. 
  3. Sulphur: By reputation, sulphur is a commonly prescribed homeopathic remedy, especially for nighttime congestion and sweating. Homeopathic sulphur combats a wheezy cough and congested head, both of which are suffered in sleep apnea. 
  4. Spongia Tosta: This remedy for croup may help congestive sleep apnea sufferers as it treats respiratory symptoms that worsen when lying down. 

Before taking these medications, it is important to visit the doctor who will take a detailed case history of your problem and prescribe the right dosage and combination of medication.

Things You Should Know About Migraines!

Things You Should Know About Migraines!

Migraine is a severe form of headache wherein, the excruciating pain is accompanied by an extreme sensitivity to sound and light; you also experience nausea. The headaches usually affect either side of the head and are throbbing in nature. Hot flashes, numbness of limbs and blind spots in the eye; these are often considered as warnings. In certain cases, migraines can cause blackouts that can range from a few seconds to a few minutes.

Migraine occurs in four stages:

  1. Pro-drome (symptom indicative of an onset of an illness)
  2. Aura (visual auras including blurred vision)
  3. Headache
  4. Post-drome (the residual effects of migraine characterized by fatigue and lethargy)

But the occurrence of these stages varies across individuals. The causes of migraines aren’t specifically understood. It may be due to the interaction of the brain stem with the trigeminal nerve, which is an important pain pathway of the brain. Imbalances in hormonal levels or in the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin may also prove to be a causal factor.

Symptoms

Migraine may be triggered due to stress, physical exertion, and excess intake of alcohol or food additives such as MSG (Monosodium Glutamate). Changes in the environment and sleeping patterns may also be probable culprits.

Migraine can be easily distinguished from regular headaches, given the fact that migraines last longer and are rather severe in nature with pain felt in one part of the head. Most people experience the ‘Aura’stage where they have visual flashes right before headache. Nausea, eye pain or sensitivity to light and sound are other factors helpful in distinguishing migraine from other headaches.

Symptoms can occur a while before headache, immediately before headache, during headache and after headache. Although not all migraines are the same.

Typical symptoms include:

  • Moderate to severe pain, usually confined to one side of the head during an attack, but can occur on either side of the head
  • The pain is usually a severe, throbbing, pulsing pain
  • Increasing pain during physical activity
  • Inability to perform regular activities due to pain
  • Feeling sick and physically being sick
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound, relieved by lying quietly in a darkened room
  • Some people experience other symptoms such as sweating, temperature changes, tummy ache and diarrhea.

Complications in migraine may include:

  1. Chronic migraine which last up to 15 days or more
  2. Status Migrainosus where the attacks last for over 3 days
  3. Migrainous infarction where the aura lasts longer than it should, cutting blood supply to the brain.

Parkinson's Disease - Most Common Motor & Non-motor Symptoms At Your Rescue!

Parkinson's Disease - Most Common Motor & Non-motor Symptoms At Your Rescue!

What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and degenerative disorder of the Central Nervous System that mostly affects older people. It is a chronic disease and the symptoms develop over a period of time. The characteristic symptoms of Parkinson’s are rigidity, shaking, bradykinesia (slowness in movement) and shuffled gait. Anxiety and depression also seem to be common in advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to the motor symptoms, the cognitive function of the brain is also compromised.

Degeneration of the nerve cells in the substantia nigra of the brain results in the reduction in production of dopamine which is a neurotransmitter in the brain. Neurotransmitters relay impulses from one nerve to the other. This is what is mainly responsible for the motor symptoms in Parkinson’s. Although, Parkinson’s is not a curable disease, it can be controlled and the progress of the disease can be kept in check with certain medications.

What causes Parkinson’s disease?
The cause of Parkinson’s is mostly idiopathic, i.e. the cause is unknown and is not specific. However, there have been cases which show that it can be attributed to factors such as genetic and environmental factors.
What are the symptoms of Parkinson’s?

The symptoms of Parkinson’s can be classified as Motor symptoms and Non-motor symptoms:

Motor Symptoms 

  • Bradykinesia: Slow movement
  • Tremor of limbs
  • Rigidity or stiffness of trunk and limbs
  • Impaired balance and difficulty in coordination or postural instability

Non-motor Symptoms 

Parkinson’s disease is not curable, but when detected early, medicines are prescribed to give symptomatic relief. Dopamine substitutes are prescribed to the patient to relieve the motor symptoms.

Homeopathy For Migraine And Other Headaches!

Homeopathy For Migraine And Other Headaches!

Headache is the discomfort or pain beneath the scalp, forehead, or behind the eyes, or arising from the head or upper neck of the body. There are several distinct types of headache. A primary headache is caused by pain or a disorder that originates from the head itself. For example, a migraine or tension headache. A secondary headache originates outside the head, such as a headache related to nausea from the flu, or as a side-effect of hormonal fluctuations in the body. Other types of headache include cranial neuralgias, facial pain, and other headaches.

Symptoms Of Migraine

One needs to know the symptoms of Migraine in order to identify between Migraine and other headaches. A unique aspect of Migraine headaches is that such headaches usually occur on one side of the head. Other kinds of headaches mostly occur on both the sides. The other major difference between Migraine and other types of headaches is the presence of associated symptoms in Migraine. In Migraine, the sufferer is likely to have a moderate to severe throbbing pain. One may suffer from:

  • Nausea

  • Pain behind either one eye or one ear

  • Pain in the temples of head

  • Experiencing spots or flashes of light

  • Sensitivity to sound, sound or both

  • Temporary vision loss

  • Vomiting

More About Migraine

  • Doctors divide Migraine headaches in two categories: Migraine with Aura and Migraine without Aura.

  • The feeling that a person develops before experiencing migraines is known as Aura. The feeling may prevail anywhere between 10 minutes to 30 minutes before the attack.

  • Such feelings may include:

    • Less mental alertness, foggy thinking

    • Experiencing flashing lights

    • Feeling of tingling or numbness in the hands or face

    • An unusual sense of smell, taste, or touch

Other Headaches

If not Migraine headache, one may have Sinus headache, Cluster Headache, Thunderclap headache or a Chiari defect. If a person is suffering from Cluster headache, he / she may have a very painful headache which is confined to on one side of the head. Such pains come in clusters and hence the name.

Homeopathy for Migraine and Headache

Modern medicine does not always seem to have a fitting answer for Migraine or any other type of headache. However, Homeopathy can help a lot. For Migraine treatment as well as for treatment of other types of headaches, Homeopathic medicines can be good idea.

Homeopathic Doctors see through the history of Migraine and Headache of the patient, the lifestyle, and other general aspects of life. This helps them make a perfect homeopathic medical course for the patient to treat their constant Migraine or headaches.

Consulting a general Homeopathic Doctor with good experience will help patients to get rid of their Migraine and Headache from its root.

Dear lybrate-user, Unfortunately this is one of the severe pain conditions one can experience and hence not east to resolve. There are more options available such as optimisation of medications, radio frequency ablation etc and the best suited one for your mother can only be suggested after examining her case in detail. I suggest you consider visiting a local pain specialist to discuss these.

I was diagnosed with haemangioma in 2003 and neurofibroma in 2010. Both were benign tumors. My blood pressure in morning remains 130/95 and in nights 130/100. Does this have any connection with these tumors Even if tumour is removed does it have the effects of blood pressure.

Haemangiomas usually do not cause high blood pressure. Also you have removed it surgically hence that cause is now out of picture. Neurofibroma is not just fibromas on the skin. It has connection with other parts of the body. It can cause high blood pressure due to various reasons and most common of all those reasons is some deep seated gland extra function which can raise your blood pressure to very high levels. Your lower blood pressure (95 and 100) is above acceptance level. Meet your physician and do primary needed tests which might include Urine, blood tests, Sonography, 2 D Echo or some special tests which will help to identify the reason behind increasing blood pressure. I feel you must make a chart of blood pressure measurements for 15 days to confirm that you really have blood pressure issue. Meet your physician earlier.

Epilepsy - Causes, Symptoms & Homeopathic Treatment Of It!

Epilepsy - Causes, Symptoms & Homeopathic Treatment Of It!

Epilepsy is a disease that affects the brain's nerve cells and triggers the release of abnormal electrical signals. This can cause temporary malfunctioning of the other brain cells and result in seizures and sometimes loss of consciousness. Epilepsy can affect both children and adults.

Causes of Epilepsy

The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, few causes of epileptic seizures to metion are brain tumours, injury, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures

  2. Impaired memory

  3. Bouts of fainting

  4. Short spans of blackout

  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing

  6. Panic

  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures based on aetiology:

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause.

  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cause cannot be detected.

  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason, as a symptom of some neuro-medical condition.

Role of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a form of healing based upon the principle of ‘Similia similibus curentur’ or ‘like cures like’. It was founded by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810. Homoeopathy offers vast scope in the treatment of various illnesses, both acute and chronic including epilepsy. Homeopathy takes into account the entire person like the patients family history, past history, etc. Homoeopathic doctors study each case thoroughly, analyze and evaluate the symptoms and then prescribe the medicine.

Homeopaths treat the patient’s mental, emotional and physical make-up i.e. the constitution. This is known as ’constitutional treatment’. Constitutional treatment treats the disease and removes it from its roots. The Constitutional method is employed in the treatment of epilepsy in Homoeopathy. This method is gives amazing results in many cases.

Homeopathy has immense scope in the treatment of Epilepsy. In fresh cases, where the child is new to epileptic treatment, homoeopathy can relieve complaints by giving ‘constitutional treatment’.

In other cases where the child is already taking treatment, homoeopathy can taper off the doses gradually and thus treat the patient effectively. Thus, in both the cases, homoeopathic treatment is beneficial in treating epilepsy.

In either of the cases, a constitutional medicine is given to treat epilepsy. Constitutional treatment relieves the patient from seizures, convulsions, etc. Thus the child can attend school daily and concentrate on his studies. In about 1/3 cases of epilepsy, a surgery known as ‘seizure surgery’ is performed. Regular constitutional treatment is very useful in such cases.

Homeopathic medicines are completely side-effect free and are not habit-forming. They can be taken by children, adults and even by pregnant women. They must be taken only after consultation from a homoeopathic practitioner.
