Homoeopathic Remedies for Cervical Spondylosis

Homoeopathic Remedies for Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is a disorder that affects the joints and disc around the cervical region or neck. Earlier, it was believed that spondylosis can occur in old people only and is an age-related disorder. However, it is not true nowadays. Today, even youngsters complain of pain in the neck region due to cervical spondylosis. It occurs mostly to people who spend longer hours sitting and working on the computer. It is caused due to damage of cartilage and bones in this region. Symptoms of cervical spondylosis include chronic pain and stiffness around the neck.

Causes for Cervical Spondylosis:

A number of factors can be responsible for cervical spondylosis. Following are the common causes for the disorder:

  1. Overgrowth of Bones in the Neck Region: This can hamper the sensitive areas around the spine.
  2. Drying of Fluid: The spinal bone is made up of disc-like structures. There is fluid present in between the disks. Spondylosis is often caused due to the drying up of this fluid.
  3. Herinated Disks: In some cases, cracks get developed on the disks. This causes leakage of fluid in between them. Consequently, the nerves in this region get damaged.
  4. Injury: If you have had an injury to your neck, such as during a fall or car accident, this can accelerate the aging process.

Homeopathic Medicines to Cure Cervical Spondylosis:

There are homeopathic medicines, which can cure cervical spondylosis over a period of time. However, the dosage of these medicines must be administered properly to get rid of the disorder. Some of these useful medicines have been listed below:

  1. Conium: This medicine is prescribed for patients suffering from vertigo. If a patient feels pain or vertigo while turning the head sideways or lying down on bed, this medicine can prove helpful. Other symptoms that should be taken into account while prescribing this drug include feeling of tightness in the temporal region and pain in occipital area.
  2. Gelsemium: If the pain in the neck region extends to the back of the head, one may be given doses of Gelsemium. The patient complains of having the pain at the centre of the occipital region. Besides, the patient will feel inactive, dull and dizzy most of the times.
  3. Kalmia Latifolia: This is given when the pain spreads upto the arm region and fingers. The pain can also be felt around the shoulder blades. The patient suffers from frequent nausea. The pain increases when the patient tries to look down.
  4. Silicea: When the pain is felt on eyes or forehead, this medicine is prescribed. It is also useful in treating spine curvature. These patients cannot adjust with cold weather. They feel chilly most of the times. The get quick relief by warm fomentation.
  5. Calcarea Phos: This is useful for treating patients who have developed spondylosis due to the overgrowth of bones in the cervical region or bone spurs.

You are having retracted nipple. Massage it daily with coconut oil or moisturising cream. If still it does not come out, it will lead to difficulty in breast feeding. Consult a general surgeon if you are not able to tackle the problem yourself.

Hello sir/mam My gfs age is 21 nd she is suffering from irregular white discharge/white solids from her vagina tried many creams bt did not worked. Wht might have happened doctor? Is it normal or not. And how to stop that? please help me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
The discharge may be normal if it is not too frequent, without smell, without blood/mucus, white in color (not yellow) and is not causing burning or scratching. Any of the above may be sign of infection. White solids are nothing but the discharge which has solidified inside the vagina. Again this comes infrequently, without other symptoms. Douching (internal washing) of vagina is practiced in the west but is not popular in our country. It is the best way out. Otherwise all she needs is regular external washing and sanitary napkins whenever the problem shows up.

Its been many years you have been trying for conceiving, so for now you should go for iui or ivf procedure, but before that get both husband and wife screened for fertility. Get all the basics tests done required for fertility. And consult some good infertility specialist.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Sometimes due to hormone injections periods may be delayed. Are wife's periods regular? have you done any tests? if not you need to do wife's blood sugar fasting level, tsh, prolactin, hb, tc, dc levels, ultrasound of pelvis, husband's semen analysis. If all these are normal then hsg x-ray to see the tubes. Without reports no advice is proper. If you have reports upload at private question.
