Is there a treatment in Homeopathy foe Alzeimer disease early stage. Arrest the same or reverse it?

Homeopath, Kurnool
There is no one diagnostic test that can detect if a person has Alzheimer's disease, but the process involves several kinds of tests and may take more than one day to complete the evaluation. Evaluations may include the following steps: A medical history, which collects information about current mental or physical conditions, prescription and nonprescription drug use, and family health history A mental status evaluation to assess sense of time and place; ability to remember, understand, and communicate; and ability to do simple math problems A physical examination, which includes the evaluation of the person's nutritional status, blood pressure, sensations, balance, and other functions of nervous system Investigations like a brain scan like CT and MRI to detect other causes of dementia such as stroke and laboratory tests, such as blood and urine tests, for checking various components of blood, hormones, enzymes, infections, etc. Treatment: Alzheimer's disease is difficult disorder. Homeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment if not cure. When we discuss the role of medicine for certain diseases, we probably do not talk of the 'cure' in real sense, but more of 'control' and 'relief. AD is one such condition, where homeopathy has following role to play: To control the disease process whereby further deterioration of the brain damage is helped to certain extent To improve to an extent some of the symptoms: communication, failing memory, anxiety, restlessness, etc. If you are serious I'll take up the case through Lybrate. I'll take Rs.500 /- as fees towards taking mind and body symptoms and to keep record. And later whenever you consult I'll take 200/- as fees. If you agree Lybrate will raise a bill and you can pay in their account.

Hi i am suffering from PCOD AND MIgraine. M using rizact-10 from migraine. Should I take rizact or not.
Dear lybrate-user! If Rizact is working for you for migraine you should continue taking that. PCOS management involved weight loss, diet planning and medicines which have to be decided as per the type of PCOS you have. Weight loss is however the most important part of controlling PCOS.

I think yoga can help you. If you r unable to concentrate n your mind is crowded with other thoughts yoga meditation is d answer for it. Headache may be due to many other reasons, may be upset stomach, weak eyesight, overstudy, wrong posture. Keep taking nux vomica30, 3drops twice daily. Revert back with feedback.

Its a progressive degenerative disease. If it is the correct diagnoses for your father then he can maintain the remaining strength and slow down the regression by doing maintainence therapy under any good occupational therapist. If required they will provide splints to support the functional independence.

Hello, It depends how much the mobility is affected and other aspects. I need you to get MRI Brain, BP/ Full Blood tests including Cardiac profile/ Please scan and send me. Only thing at this stage he needs to be supervised to avoid any damages that may occur and counsel him to comply and donot use force telling doctor has said. If he refuses he needs to be superised or use a walker/stick to walk to bear with rigiddity tremors and weakness and lack of initiation of his movement when he intends to. Please contact me with all these details. We can consider starting on medicines if not prescribed or alter if necessary the treatment protocol or ad on to existing protocol of treatment. Do not panic. But protect your brother, you are doing and take it bravely as we have to accept the age and disease as it is not in our hands, but we can try rectifying it and have a better life.

My mom is 40 years old and she is suffering from insomnia. In the night, when she goes to bed, She feels anxiety and due to which, she is not able to sleep whole night. Kindly prescribe.

My mom is 40 years old and she is suffering from insomnia. In the night, when she goes to bed, She feels anxiety and ...
Are you sure that she has this anxiety only at night? If so she is afraid of the darkness, or of being alone, or of death. Any which way you look at it anxiety is fear based. If she meets with a counselor she could easily identify the reason for the anxiety. She may do some of the following to get better sleep. For the medication she will need to meet a psychiatrist in person for a prescription. She should not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether she sleeps or not. She must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if she does not get sleep. If she does not get sleep, she could just lie down and if she has a bed lamp (or you could get her one) let her lie down and read something light but not exciting. Her eyes will tire and she will fall asleep. If she likes she may also put on the light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether she is a visual or auditory person, she may watch TV in a lying down position until she feels sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If she is one of them, please do so). Place the head side of her bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on her body or in the room, or on her sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in her bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, let her lie down on her left ear as much as possible. Do not let her sleep directly under an overhead fan. She must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever she eats in the other meals, let her have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep she may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before she sleeps at night. If she knows Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then let her practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before she sleeps.

I am a medical student my friend asked me about his problem that he has been masturbation since seven years from the past three months while masturbation he is having some pain in his right leg and sometimes hand he has a fear that he will get nervous weakness and paralysis. Can you help me to treat him.

MBBS
General Physician,
Mastrubation can not lead to paralysis. Due to excessive mastrubation and excessive stroking may give you slight pain in penis, testies. Give him simple analgesics and anxiolytics with some multivitamins.

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.

One month ago my grandmother had a mild stroke. She was taken to Apollo hospital (outside) and there doctors given her acitrom. But now blood is coming through the gums and is not stopping. Then a local doctor given her injection to stop bleeding. It is to be noted that she was regularly monitoring INR. But even after this it happened. Is it necessary to take acitrom further, or she may stop it forever?

MBBS, DNB, Fellowship in Neurosurgery
Neurosurgeon, Kolkata
Dear mild stroke does not require acitrom. What was the mri report and echocardiography report? if she is bleeding. Urgently contact your concerned doctor. Acitrom needs to be stopped. But depending on the stroke, she needs other medication.
