I'm 21years old and I have white discharge problems every now and then why is that?

International Academy of Classical Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath,
Hi, homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. Homoeopathic medicines are mainly selected on the basis of symptoms given to us by the patient. To make a successful prescription, apart from the treatment through remedies, a lot of counseling and appropriate diet regimen is also required. Take care and god bless you. Thanks.

I had intercourse from day 14-20 of my menstrual cycle. Whether is it possible for me to attain pregnancy? How much of chance is there? Can I do long travel in between before result?

Pregnancy is technically only possible during the five days before ovulation through to the day of ovulation. Day one is the first day of the menstrual period and the last day is the day before the next period begins. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14. If a woman has sex six or more days before she ovulates, the chance she will get pregnant is virtually zero. For those women who are not aware of, when they ovulate, sexual intercourse is recommended every 2 to 3 days to help optimize their chance of conceiving. Intercourse from day 14-20 is the right time for conceiving. Light distant travelling has no problems. All the Best.

Can I take that medicine?

The early abortion method is not suitable for everyone and there are certain factors that mean you are not eligible for treatment this way. These factors are: If you are 35 year old or over and smoke 10 or more cigarettes each day If it is thought that you have an ectopic pregnancy If you have a past medical history of heart disease, high blood pressure, liver or kidney disease If you are taking long term anti corticosteroids (taken for arthritis) If you have an IUD (contraceptive device) which will not be removed If you have adrenal failure If you have any hemorrhagic disease or porphyria or are taking anti-coagulants If you have inflammatory bowel disease which is poorly controlled. Medical abortion is typically considered a failure when a surgical procedure is performed to complete the abortion for any reason, including incomplete abortion, continuing (viable) pregnancy, hemorrhage, or patient request. (1) (2) Failure is a well-known complication of medical abortion. Medical abortion protocols emphasize the importance of counseling women about the risk of failure. Medical abortion failure requiring a surgical procedure can include: Heavy Bleeding/Hemorrhage and Anemia (especially with ongoing blood loss) (See BLEEDING) Incomplete Abortion (unresponsive to drug treatment) Persistent Gestational Sac (GS) without cardiac activity Profuse Bleeding due to blood clots or pregnancy tissue fragments Continuing (ongoing) pregnancy/True drug and method failure Orthostatic hypotension (extreme drop in blood pressure) Patient unable to return to clinic; no access to emergency services Patient preference to complete the procedure because she is tired of persistent bleeding Provider choice or error interventions Medically necessary interventions or threats to patients’ health Failures, defined as cases requiring surgical procedure for medical reasons or because the patient requested it, the abortion was incomplete, or the pregnancy was ongoing, increases with longer durations of pregnancy. Women must be informed to return for a clinical examination in cases of acute or prolonged bleeding, pain or fever, as these signs may be indicators of failure or other complications that need treatment.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there is no chance of pregnancy. Take care.

You can do sex from 12th to 18th day from start of periods. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take lots of water daily. Do meditation for mental strength.

Most likely you are having infection. Visit adoctor for the discharge. In the mean time apply antifungal cream twice a day. And use vaginal wash.

Common Ailments Which Can Be Treated With Homeopathy

Common Ailments Which Can Be Treated With Homeopathy

We all have used homeopathy as a cure, and we know from experience that it works. This complementary modality of healing works on the principle of ‘like kills like’. All homeopathic medicines are derived from natural sources and are then diluted and ‘potentized’ to make them safe.

Here are a few common ailments that respond very well to homoeopathic medicines:

  1. Common Cold- Allium Cepa (onion) which causes tearing in the eyes and dripping from the nose, is a frequent remedy for common cold and hay fever. It is very effective when there is a watery, and burning nasal discharge from the nose. Oscillococcinum, Bryonia, Belladonna, Arsenicum Album and Aconite are also excellent cures for influenza. Bryonia is especially useful in treating body aches that accompany fever.

  2. Shock and Trauma From Injury- Arnica (mountain daisy) is the best remedy for trauma due to injuries and is an excellent first aid. It also helps to reduce pain and speeds up the healing process.

  3. A Sore Throat- Aconite, Arsenicum Album and Belladonna are very good. Aconite helps during the onset of a sore throat while Belladonna is helpful in curing tonsillitis.

  4. Nerve Problems- Hypericum (St. John's wort) is the first medicine to consider for injuries to the nerves or to parts of the body rich with them, like the back. This medicine is especially good for treating shooting pains.

  5. Psychiatric Ailments- Ignatia (St. Ignatius bean) is most effective in treating acute grief, anxiety, and depression, especially due to loss of a loved one.

  6. Cramps- Magnesia phosphorica (phosphate of magnesia) is the most effective remedy for cramps, including menstrual cramps.

  7. Indigestion- Nux Vomica (poison nut), Aconite, Carbo Veg and Pulsatilla all treat indigestion. Nux Vomica is especially useful in relieving symptoms of flatulence, constipation/diarrhoea and heartburn. Carbo Veg is extremely useful for getting rid of gas after food.

Sprains-Rhus tox (poison ivy) is the medicine of choice for people suffering from sprains and strains. It’s especially useful when the person suffers from more pain when he starts moving after resting. It can also treat symptoms of arthritis and flu.

Remember to take these medicines in the 6th or 30th potency only. If you are suffering from minor pain or discomfort, you should take the medicine 3 times a day but if the discomfort is severe, you can take the medicine every 1 to 3 hours, tapering off later.

If you do not observe at least some improvement even after 24 hours of taking the medicine, it probably is the wrong one. Consider taking another medicine or better still, consult a homoeopathic doctor. It is also best if you treat yourself for non-threatening acute conditions only and go for professional care for chronic conditions.

Check your hemoglobin level. Normally it should be 12, but up to 10.5 is acceptable. Any level below 10 means every month you are loosing more blood than your body can replace. In that case a good resolution ultrasound exam could detect the cause of excess bleeding and the cure is can be advised accordingly. Some other blood tests may also be necessary.

Common Treatment Options For Back Pain

Common Treatment Options For Back Pain

Lower back pain is a very common discomfort causing condition that occurs anywhere on the back below the ribs and above the legs. The pain is very common and it is faced by most individuals at least once during their lifetime.

The most basic measures to cure your lower back pain are exercising well, eating healthy and maintaining a good body posture at all times. Here are some of the common treatment options for reducing back pain.

Spinal Manipulation: It refers to an ancient form of therapy in which your back pain is treated externally. This form of treatment is quite similar to a massage treatment and helps to relax the muscles in the lower back area, thereby reducing the pain. It is usually done by osteopathic physicians, chiropractors, occupational therapists and physical therapists.

Neurostructural integration technique (NST): The main role of this type of treatment is to naturally reset the affected area of the body in order to allow it to regain its normal form. The results usually begin to appear after at least 2 sessions of the therapy and the effects are long lasting in nature.

Acupuncture: This is an old technique which uses small needles at strategic locations on your skin. The main aim of the acupuncturists is to re-balance the flow of energy in your body and to ensure that you have an optimal level of energy in all parts of your body. This in turn helps to regain the normal state of your lower back if the right points on the body are targeted.

Other measures: Some preventive measures which ensure that the lower back pain does not recur are as follows:

  1. Keep your spine straight and posture correct
  2. Avoid excessive bending, stretching or weight lifting
  3.  Avoid heavy physical activities like sprinting
  4. Regular and light exercising

If menses haven't come for 3 months, try a home pregnancy test first. Later go for a blood test or ultrasound to confirm.
