Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months and hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune disease where we can control it with medication but not cure it completely.

Proper burping after feeds is very important. Regurgitation of milk is common .you should be worried if vomits high volume repeatedly and looses weight.

What is the ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is a special high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that helps to control seizures in some people with epilepsy. It is prescribed by a physician and carefully monitored by a dietitian. It is stricter than the modified Atkins diet, requiring careful measurements of calories, fluids, and proteins.
The name ketogenic means that it produces ketones in the body (keto = ketone, genic = producing). Ketones are formed when the body uses fat for its source of energy.
Usually the body uses carbohydrates (such as sugar, bread, pasta) for its fuel, but because the ketogenic diet is very low in carbohydrates, fats become the primary fuel instead.
Ketones are not dangerous. They can be detected in the urine, blood, and breath. Ketones are one of the more likely mechanisms of action of the diet; with higher ketone levels often leading to improved seizure control. However, there are many other theories for why the diet will work.

My son is 6 years old. He is studying in second standard, he is healthy and active .but when he study for the exams he will forgot all what he studied. please suggest .

Hi, is there some kind of pressure around studies on your son? how is the home environment and relationship of family members with each other. If the child has no diagnosed history of learning difficulty, then he will generally do well. Be observant about your and others behaviour towards his education. Undue pressure and expectation will only create problems for him. You can make studies a fun activity, allowing him to ask more and more questions and providing him with answers. You can play memorising games with him and lovingly teach him ways to memorize if something seems difficult. Let him be curious about things around him, and allow him to learn through exploration. Talk to him what he likes about school, teachers and studies and what he doesn't like about them. Identify what is challenging for him. Let him have fixed timings for study and play. Follow a schedule for good diet. Seek help of counsellor for further guidance.

Consult a Pediatrician immediately & get your baby evaluated. Crying a lot, refusing food etc. May be an indication of some underlying physical problem. As babies at this age cannot express themselves, so as a mother you should always observe him for any change of behavior & habits, which will give you lots of indication regarding his inner health. Along with, continue breast feeding & eat nutritious diet.

Hello doctor My 5 year young baby girl have allergy. Always she get sick of cold n cough. What should I do for her so that. She will not get sickness anymore. Please help.

FIAP(NEONATE), MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ahmedabad
Children are often prone to cold which may be due to viral infection or an allergic phenomena. The best way to deal with allergy is to avoid allergens that is to say avoid contact with any known factors which would lead to allergy. Also keep in mind that if there is an adequate weight gain and no other symptoms, no need to worry. As he grows, the episodes will become less frequent.

Asthma & Homeopathy Treatment

Asthma is nothing but difficulty in breathing due to various reasons.Here the air passages will be narrower n causes patient feel more suffocated, hard to take normal breathing, with excessive sweating, restlessness, Oppression of chest,Deathly feeing. All these depends on the Chronicity, severity of Asthma. First the acute attacks may lead to chronic with increased intensity,long duration. Some times the patient may die to the severity of symptoms like gasping .

It may be Cardiac in origin[where it is a bit critical, complicated], n mostly Lungs related[Bronchial]. Usually, we see the Br. Asthmatics only in general, in early ages, etc. Here In Bronchial Asthma, the origin may be due to the allergy of patient to certain food like sea food, cold things,Fish, pea nuts,egg, fragrance, perfumes, dust, pollution, chemical exposure n intake,Pollen etc. Stress also may act like triggering factor for Asthma. Hormonal imbalance in certain ages, Mostly hereditary also plays important role.Initially people who used to get allergic rhinitis, Atopic Dermatitis, Skin allergies from all above causes will gradually develop into Asthma, If, were not taken proper care.

Here in Homeopathy, taking treatment in initial conditions like in Allergy stages itself. Will definitely help in preventing from getting Asthma.Even after Asthma developed also, depending on other causative factors, then also It can be treatable with Homeopathy .
Few Homeopathy remedies that will work effectively for Br. Asthma are natrum sulph, where the patient suffers asthma from cold weather, cold things, damp, wet weather. In he same way, Arsenic album{asthmatic attacks will be more @ r after 12-1am/pm, Antim. Tart, Carbo.Veg[where the atient needs more ventilation, there will be gasping for air. Air hunger], sambuccus,Kali.Carb[when the asthmatic attacks are more @ 3am, Ipecauc,Blatta orientalis[in mother tincture from], Kali.Bich, Nux. Vomica[when c/o is associated with gastric c/o]. Like this though the c/o is known as same, but based on symptoms accordingly, the drugs should be chosen.
Avoiding the aggravating factors will help preventing suffering a lot. But when those are not all avoidable, then starting the treatment early will help the patient definitely, when they give picture of their suffering properly to an Expert.

Warm cloth is useful particularly in this hot weather. Excessive cough may be due to chest infection which require thorough examination. Pls take another opinion from pediatrician. Blood in poo (stool) may not be associated with cough. Pediatrician shall take care of both ailment.

Probably child is not eating enough solids & being on milk. A 3 year old child should be able to eat with parents. In addtion insufficient water intake and deferring urge to defecate due to any cause adds up to the problem. Any way start giving semisolids/ solid diet instead of milk every 3 hours with plenty of water in between. For instant relief dulcolax suppositary per anal can be given.
