Sir, I am 56 year old, after doing some physical work I have troubled in breathing specially whenever my stomach is full and particularly in night repeatedly going for urination and my inside of neck is very much dry. I also have reaction with metrogolodin.

If overweight, reduce weight. Go urine examination and blood sugar fasting/pp as increased urination and dry mouth can be due to diabetes.

General Physician, Delhi
Dear, I can understand the condition you are facing, I hope you have not taken azithromycin without the consulting the physician, as taking an undue antibiotics creates resistance, cough is of various types and pathology, it can productive or non-productive, and is not stated in your question, please do a chest x-ray and cbc, before that take any anti allergic cough syrup, then you can contact me personally or via lybrate or visit your physician for your examination and reports, to decide the treatment.

I am 21 years old and I am suffering from cold from last 9 days now. I have taken a couple of cough syrups but the cough is still there. What shall I do now.

Homeopath, Delhi
Hi, a large number of cough syrups are available but you should take different ones for dry cough and productive cough pls explain your nature of cough- is it dry or there is expectoration. Baksons- kofaid is good for dry cough and kofaid plus is good for productive cough you can try either according to your nature of cough for a wk, and revert for follow up.

I am suffering from asthma since 1986 and tacking inhaler but now I am feeling breathing problem in morning and evening.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
An attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack and the first attack usually occurs in childhood. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts. Consult me pvt for detailed treatment. In mean time can use cuprum ars, kali phos 12x.

Hi sir, my mother is suffering from headache for past years. We thought its migraine, she also have sinusitis. Previously she used homeopathy medicines. Recently we had consulted an ENT. Specialist in Multi specialty hospital, there they said for CT scan after on report they suggested for a surgery. Is surgery is compulsory for this? Is there any solution by using only medicines? . Will wait for your answers, Thank you.

Hi, if the sinus infection is the only cause of her headache then disease clearance is the only choice. Generally a mother misses her food in time, take care of her breakfast. If all medical supportive management fails, then surgery is the treatment of choice for chronic obstructive sinusitis. Hope it helps you.

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.
