If you often feel tired, exhausted, fatigued, stressed or suffer from aches and pains or other chronic ailments, we have the ultimate solution. If you seek a deep level of luxurious pampering, relaxation and revitalization to carry your body, mind and spirit to another plane then Panchakarma is for you!

With much love and care Arogyam Ayurveda designed this therapy package to eliminate the internal causes of diseases and release the burden on your whole being. Large quantities of toxic bi-products are formed in the body as a result of numerous factors, including the body’s continuous metabolic processes, wrong body habits, wrong food habits, incompatible combination of food items, suppression of body urges, emotional imbalances, etc..

If your elimination system is functioning well most of these toxins are eliminated naturally. However, if it’s mal-functioning damaging toxins are deposited in various parts of the body. This toxic load results in the impairment of the Doshas, Dhatus (tissues), etc.. Consequently, normal functioning of the body systems are also impaired and we feel the many symptoms of toxicity and general ill health.

Is passive smoking harmful? I am staying with my friends who smokes all 10 to 20 cigarettes in a day and i am a non smoker.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Yes, passive smoking is as bad as smoking. Either change your friend or the room. Motivate your friend to give-up smoking. I thing some times friends are best motivator for a person to change a habit or give up an addiction. You don't indulge yourself to smoking, by the by.

Hi Doctor, I am 38 year woman. A fitness freak. I eat all healthy stuff and do intense workout 5-6 times a week. I am only worried about my habit of consumption of Alcohol which happens 3-4 times in a week. I will not say that I want to quit this completely but want have a grip on this harmful habit. I tried home remedies and my will power as well but nothing worked really. Please help me in getting some solution to this. Prescribe me some medicine if this can be the option. Thanks in Advance.

Alcohol may be due to boredom or showing off or due to some mind issue you may be facing. You need to discover that issue and solve it. Ignore discipline/willpower, try love for yourself. Love yourself completely, forgive yourself, accept yourself completely. Practice mindfulness. This path will solve your problem.

Scope of Homoeopathic in treating Epilepsy

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Chennai
Epilepsy is a disorder that results from the generation of electrical signals inside the brain, causing recurring seizures. Seizure symptoms vary. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others have regular convulsions.

A seizure is a abnormal, disorderly discharging of the brain's nerve cells, resulting in a temporary disturbance of motor, sensory, or mental function. There are many types of seizures, depending primarily on the part of the brain involved.

Every person suffering from epilepsy has different experience. Hence homoeopathy offers many remedies to treat epilepsy, depending on the sign and symptoms. Homoeopathy can treat epilepsy very successfully.

Risk Factors
Early childhood
Above 65 years
Men are affected more
Family History of epilepsy
Fall on head, injury, accident
Brain Infections

Healthy people may have seizures under certain circumstances. If the seizures have a known cause, the condition is referred to as secondary or symptomatic epilepsy. Some of the more common causes include the following:
Chemical imbalance such as low blood sugar or sodium
Head injuries
Certain toxic chemicals or drugs of abuse
Alcohol withdrawal
Stroke including hemorrhage
Birth injuries
Developmental Disorders: Epilepsy can be associated with other developmental disorders, such as autism and Down syndrome.

Almost any type of behavior that happens repetitively may represent a seizure. Types are:

Generalized seizures: All areas of the brain (cortex) are involved in a generalized seizure. Sometimes these are referred to as grand mal seizures.
To the observer, the person experiencing such a seizure may cry out or make some sound, stiffen for some seconds, then have rhythmic movements of the arms and legs. Often the rhythmic movements slow before stopping.
Eyes are generally open.
The person may not appear to be breathing. The person is often breathing deeply after an episode.
The return to consciousness is gradual and should occur within a few moments.
Loss of urine is common.
Often people will be confused briefly after a generalized seizure.

Partial or focal seizures: Only part of the brain is involved, so only part of the body is affected. Depending on the part of the brain having abnormal electrical activity, symptoms may vary.
If the part of the brain controlling movement of the hand is involved, for example, then perhaps only the hand may show rhythmic movements or jerking.
If other areas of the brain are involved, symptoms might include strange sensations or small repetitive movements such as picking at clothes or lip smacking.
Sometimes the person with a partial seizure appears dazed or confused. This may represent a partial complex seizure. The term complex is used by doctors to describe a person who is between being fully alert and unconscious.

Absence or Petit mal seizures: These are most common in childhood. Symptoms include
Impairment of consciousness is present with the person often staring blankly.
Repetitive blinking or other small movements may be present.
Typically, these seizures are brief, lasting only seconds. Some people may have many of these in a day.
Other types of seizure are particularly found in small children

Neurological Examination
Blood Tests
MRI Scan
CT Scan

The doctor uses neurological tests and other investigations to diagnose epilepsy.

Falling: If you fall during a seizure, you can have severe head injury.
Status Epilepticus: This condition occurs if you're in a state of continuous seizure activity lasting more than five minutes or you have frequent recurrent seizures without regaining consciousness in between them. People with status epilepticus have an increased risk of permanent brain damage and death.

Role of Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a form of healing based upon the principle of ‘Similia similibus curentur’ or ‘like cures like’. It was founded by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810. Homoeopathy offers vast scope in the treatment of various illnesses, both acute and chronic including epilepsy.

Homeopathy takes into account the entire person like the patients family history, past history, etc. Homoeopathic doctors study each case thoroughly, analyze and evaluate the symptoms and then prescribe the medicine.

Homeopaths treat the patient’s mental, emotional and physical make-up i.e. the constitution. This is known as ’constitutional treatment’. Constitutional treatment treats the disease and removes it from its roots. The Constitutional method is employed in the treatment of epilepsy in Homoeopathy. This method is gives amazing results in many cases.

Homeopathy has immense scope in the treatment of Epilepsy. In fresh cases, where the child is new to epileptic treatment, homoeopathy can relieve complaints by giving ‘constitutional treatment’.

In other cases where the child is already taking treatment, homoeopathy can taper off the doses gradually and thus treat the patient effectively. Thus, in both the cases, homoeopathic treatment is beneficial in treating epilepsy.

In either of the cases, a constitutional medicine is given to treat epilepsy. Constitutional treatment relieves the patient from seizures, convulsions, etc. Thus the child can attend school daily and concentrate on his studies. In about 1/3 cases of epilepsy, a surgery known as ‘seizure surgery’ is performed. Regular constitutional treatment is very useful in such cases.

Homeopathic medicines are completely side-effect free and are not habit-forming. They can be taken by children, adults and even by pregnant women. They must be taken only after consultation from a homoeopathic practitioner.

Our team at Newlife Speciality Centre is completely dedicated to serve the patients and relieve them from illnesses. The doctors have skill and knowledge to handle different cases effectively. They strive for the well being of their clients.

It's been over one year since I have started feeling low from time to time. I have also been living alone all this time and now a days do not feel like talking to most people. Have mood swings (don't know if it because of irregular periods, got my recent period after 6months). I also have destructive thoughts in mind sometimes and have wondered about life too many times. I don't like to sleep at night and don't get sleep also, in the morning I don't feel like waking up. I stay and work from my flat mostly. Watch TV series and work. Don't feel motivated for most of the things I used to. What can I do to be happier and energetic?

Dear , I have read your question and understood it well. I can understand your suffering. With all these symptoms most probably you are suffering from a depressive episode. Depression is a common psychiatric illness which is characterised with sadness, preference for being alone, social withdrawal, lack of enjoyment in pleasurable activities which used to be pleasurable earlier, reduced energy, reduced appetite, low desire for sex, disturbed sleep, negative view of future, guilt, low self esteem, reduced confidence and suicidal thoughts. Depression causes lots of personal suffering and socio-occupational dysfunction. It is treatable. Already you have suffered a lot. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist nearby who may assess you further and may prescribe antidepressant medication like ssri for few months for cure.
