Do no worry. Mostly viral fever to start with is high grade and settles in 3 to 4 days. You can give paracetamol sos. If your child is well looking most fever subside without any antibiotics. If fever is persistent or there are abnormal symptoms like vomiting drowsiness loose motion then consult your pediatrician.

Please use home cooked semi solids like sooji, daliya, khichdi, daal chhaval, etc. Daal pani has no nutritional value so don't use it similarly fruit juices are not recommended, use mashed fruits. Add oil or ghee in diet to increase taste and caloric value, curd you can use it. Is very good for everyone.

Hello; first you have to stop giving him neurocetum or similar named syrup you are giving him. What is your son's weight & height? c. Atomoxetine (acepta) is a very good medication & we can increase its dose depending on your sons responses like studies, behavior in class etc. In addition, there are other good medications like methylphenidate, clonidine also which can be prescribed if required. Do revert back for further help. Good luck.

Swami ramdev reports patients have benefited by anulomvilom pranayama. You will have to close and open your son' nostrils with your hand. I hope if you do it there will be definite improvement. Otherwise, medicines are the last resort with little success so why not try pranayama that might benefit just as other mental health problems.

If baby is fed properly since birth, 6 kg must be at the age of about 5 months. It is obvious that either baby has not been fed since birth or he has not been given proper food at the start of weaning. Proper diet details is lacking in your description. Any way, give him solids food well cooked and prepared at home. Add complementary dairy milk three times in a day to his requirement. I am sure baby is not suffering from any ailment.

Mother's dengue is not related to child's ill health. You have not mentioned the age of the child. Children less than 5 years usually have less immunity and some children fall sick frequently. Dengue most of the time is a mild illness. Rarely it goes for complications.

When it is safe to wean a baby?and what you suggest to give?

It will not come again if you lose weight and have a healthy lifestyle and diet and exercise. Yes you can conceived naturally too. First periods after delivery can come as late as 9 month. But please rule out pregnancy if in doubt. Also if it does not come by 12 months c your gynecologist.

Can Homeopathy Help Treat Diabetes?

B.H.M.S
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition wherein the body doesn t metabolise sugar properly. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, is responsible for carrying the sugar or glucose, from the bloodstream to the individual cells. When the pancreas fails to produce insulin, glucose builds up in your bloodstream and enters your urine. Homeopathy focuses on the overall health of the individual. Homeopathic medicines for diabetes include:
1. Abroma Augusta: This homeopathic medicine is best for diabetics who have weak muscles, increased appetites and frequent urination.
2. Phosphorus: If symptoms include weak vision, Phosphorus is the best remedy for it.
3. Syzygium Jambolanum: This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for diabetes mellitus. It acts efficiently and promptly in lowering sugar levels.
4. Phosphoric acid: If you feel exhausted or weak all the time, either physically or mentally, then Phosphoric acid is beneficial. Weak memory, forgetfulness and numb feet are also treated with Phosphoric acid.
5. Gymnema Sylvestre: Sometimes, diabetics drastically lose weight and have low energy levels. Gymnema Sylvestre is an excellent remedy for such symptoms.

Sometimes one or more homeopathic medicines may be combined to treat symptoms. Some common combinations include:
1. Lachesis, Arnica, Belladonna and Phosphorus are combined in a treatment to treat retinopathy, which is damage to the eyes caused by diabetes.
2. Serum Anguillae, Arsenic Album and Lycopodium are used together to treat kidney damage (nephropathy) in diabetics.
3. Helonias, Sulphur and Phosphoric acid are taken to deal with neuropathy or nerve problems such as numbness in feet and hands.
4. Syzygium Jambolanum is combined with Secale Cornutum to treat skin ulcers, which is a common problem among diabetics.
5. For people suffering from constipation due to diabetes, Natrum Sulph, Defloratum and Carlsbad are the best medicines.
6. To improve weak memory, Phosphoric acid, Nux Vom and Kali Phos are the best remedies for diabetics.
7. Sometimes diabetics complain of extreme, incapacitating weakness. To improve energy and boost overall health, Carbo Veg, Phosphoric acid, Phosphorus and Arsenic Album are recommended.
