When I put power my hands are shaking why it's happening and what can I do please help me.
If your hands are shaking almost any time. Then its a matter of concern. Consult a neurologist to treat the same. Stress, fatigue, and too much caffeine can worsen it. It can be due to other disores apart from relation to brain disorders like decrease sugar, thyroid disorders, anxiety, stress, genetic, nutritional deficiency and many more. Consult a specialist to find out the root cause.

My dad suffers from epilepsy, what medications or remedies can help him get rid of or deal with this?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

There is no absolute cure for epilepsy if there is no identifiable cause for it. Most of the epilepsy are idiopathic - i. E. Without any known cause. Anti epileptics given in a optimum dose and number can keep check on epilepsy.

Sleep Apnea - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Sleep Apnea - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

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.

Neurological Disorders - How Physiotherapy Can Help Manage It?

Physiotherapist, Latur
Neurological Disorders - How Physiotherapy Can Help Manage It?

Neurological disorders are problems with any one or a combination of the central nervous system or any of its peripheral systems such as cranial nerves, neuromuscular junctions, and the autonomic nervous systems among others.

Some extreme examples of neurological disorders are:

- Dementia
- Alzheimer's disease
- Parkinson's disease
- Epilepsy
- Disorders brought on by strokes
- Multiple sclerosis and others

What is physiotherapy and how can it help?

Physiotherapy is a form of treatment where practitioners use physical forms of treatment such as massages, exercises, heat treatment and other controlled forms of external stimuli to treat physical disorders.

This method of treatment can be very effective in correcting neurological disorders.

Some of the physiotherapy techniques, which can be implemented to help patients, are as follows:

  • Electrical Stimulation: This method is commonly used to treat muscular problems, especially incurred after an accident or any other form of injury. In this method, controlled electric stimulation is given to specific nerve areas over the skin to stimulate them.
  • Heat treatment: This method involves applying heat to parts of the body such as joints or muscles where there is nerve or muscular damage. This treatment is especially effective for muscle related problems.
  • Ice or cold treatment: Vertically opposite to the principle of heat treatment, ice or cold treatment is used to contract muscles within the body. This is especially effective where inflammation needs to be controlled.
  • Manual therapy: Possibly the most common form of physiotherapy, this method employs massages, pressure points, stretching and hands on strengthening exercises and helps regularize nerve impulses to areas where they have been affected. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

Sir I am suffering from Seizures, sir can you tell me about this and suffering from last 5yrs, please sir.

MBBS,J.R. Neurology
General Physician,
Suffering from seizures for the past 5 years makes you an epilepsy patient. The causes can be numerous, starting from infection to local lesions. It is mandatory that you get yourself diagnosed properly for the underlying cause and strictly follow the antiepileptic medications that have been prescribed to you. Patients do recover completely and can live a normal life without depending on drugs. Seizures are indeed a cause for concern as it can be life threatening at times. Sometimes there are triggering factors that induce seizures. So I would advise you to look for such factors and avoid them. Consult a neurologist if you haven't. Take care.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Epilepsy is a treatable disorder. Medicines have to be taken for atleast 3 years after the last fit has occurred. If seizures keep on occurring at intervals then medicines need to be changed or added accordingly, and further continued for 3 years. For any further queries on the disorder or treatment options, you may consult online.
