Sir I have stone in my kidney so what are the thing I have to take so that I not have to go for operation?
what are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Space between anus and vagina vary from person to person. In extreme cases anus opens into vagina only. And this doesn't happen suddenly. It is like that right from the birth. But she must keep the area clean. Wash the area at least twice daily. Itching is because of the bad hygiene in that area. So she should maintain a good hygiene in that area. If the itching continues, please don't hesitate to consult a surgeon (in person. Thanks and god bless.

Kidney stones are formed due to various reasons. But above the so called reasons like dehydration, dietary factors, gout etc all the persons who are exposed to such conditions are not getting kidney stones and it proves it is due to the tendency of ones genetic make up which causes a proneness to get kidney stones and it has to be treated with homoeopathic medicine to get a permanent cure. Moreover before that the site of the stone and the type of the stone with its size etc has to be assessed with usg kub to make the treatment scientific and effective.

Dear If you do not have complained then urine examination will show albumin along with its quantity like trace, +, ++ or more. If so then it indicates some kidney problem same thing can happen if you have infection or blood in urine. So either get 24 hour urine protein estimation and sonography or consult a nephrologist.

Anal Fissure

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Anal Fissure

Treat Anal Fissure Using Homeopathy

The first effortless and urgent task after you wake up is freshening up. But just imagine if passing stool becomes a painful exercise? In fact, a regular difficulty can turn into a traumatic experience. You can treat anal fissure using homeopathy. It is basically a tear or cut in the skin lining inside the anus which causes pain and/or bleeding in the patient. Anal Fissure can be caused by the passage of hard, long stool due to constipation. In case of women, it may happen after a normal delivery of a child.

Treat Anal Fissure Using Homeopathy Medication:

Allopathic treatment suggests oral pain relief medicines or stool softeners, topical ointments relieving some symptoms. But they in reality just suppress the problem for a short period and do not cure it completely. In worst case scenarios, a physician would advise a surgery as an only option for treating an anal fissure. But our answer is No. Anal fissure has an excellent treatment with homeopathy. Don't think of surgery unless you have tried homeopathic medicines for a fair period of time. These medicines are made out of natural substances and have zero side effects and could be very beneficial in providing relief in anal fissures.

But the question that might be arising in your mind is how homeopathy can avoid surgery. Actually in a surgery, some muscles surrounding the anus are cut which helps in reducing anal spasms. But according to homeopathy, this can be achieved without a surgery and using a knife.This holistic treatment works by using one's own restorative processes and is safe. Medicines are selected based upon patient's particular symptoms and many other factors using a holistic approach. The aim of this medication is not only to treat the fissure but to also cure its underlying or root cause.

Homeopathic medicines facilitate healing in the patient, improve the blood circulation in the affected areas and relieve the pain and prevent further infection. The medication also takes care of the root cause, that is, constipation or weak digestive system and cures all underlying symptoms.

So what can be expected with homeopathic treatment?

According to studies and data, this treatment has been effective in curing more than 80% of the patients of anal fissures. Most of the patients start showing improvement in about 3 to 6 weeks but some might need a longer course. There are many remedies which can provide relief but it's always wise to consult an experienced physician who can study your case, symptoms, and complete case history and provide medication.

It's just a myth. Fact is definitely one can consume soya and soya products for good muscle and loosing weight and to shed those extra fats. Remember anything in excess and overloads turns poisonous therefore, more protein than needed also shows an effect on the kidneys.
