12 Precautions to be Taken while on Homeopathic Treatment

BHMS

12 Precautions to be Taken while on Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathic medicine is the type of medicine in which natural herbs and their extracts are used for treating various health conditions in a person. This type of medication is highly effective for many ailments that can affect an individual's health without causing any side effects. But remember that, doctors who prescribe these medicines generally offer a series of precautions that the patients have to follow so that the medicines can be fully effective.

Precautions for Homeopathy

Once you consult a homeopathic doctor, make sure that you follow the regime and rules that he/she sets for you. These precautions may be related to food, time and frequency of medicine intake, dosage or things you should avoid while undergoing the treatment. Here is a detailed look at what you might need to pay attention to:

  1. The regime that has been provided for the medicine needs to be followed and you must ensure that the medicines are taken properly.
  2. People generally tend to take overdose of the prescribed medicine thinking that it would increase the potency of the ingredients and thus treat them faster. This notion has to be definitely avoided, since the medicine prescribed needs to be taken as per the dosage recommended. An overdose can lead to side effect.
  3. If the doctor mentions that you must report back after consuming the medicine for 10 to 15 days, you should definitely visit the doctor on the particular day and not later. You must never keep continuing the medicine after the prescribed time period.
  4. In case of morning dosage that are prescribed to be taken right after you wake up, rinse the mouth with plain water and never brush your teeth or use a mouthwash. This will hinder the medicine's action.
  5. Medicines should be taken at least 20 to 30 minutes prior to or after a meal.
  6. Most of the doctors advise patients to abstain from coffee and garlic when they are on homeopathic medicines.
  7. Medicines tend to have better effect if they are allowed to remain on the tongue for a long time. This is the reason why doctors tell their patients to not chew the medicines.
  8. Never touch the medicine with bare hands.
  9. In case you have missed a dosage, say for the night, do not compensate by taking it the next day morning and rather take the medicine at the prescribed time.
  10. The sweet globules of homeopathic medicines make children to have them extra. Thus the bottle must never be handed over to children. Parents should administer the dosage themselves.
  11. Homoeopathic medicines should not be taken soon after smoking or drinking, if possible it should be avoided. 
  12. Mother tinctures and liquid doses should be added in water in glass or porcelain cup, not in any metallic vessel. There is no need to keep the medicines in refrigerator.

It is water retention before delayed periods as you are sure about pregnancy test being negative. Take less salt and fats as these retain water, take less packed foods as salt is a preservative and retains water in body. Drink more water to flush out toxins from the system by urinating more, drink green tea, lemon water as these are natural substances to counter sodium in salt. Take more potassium through amla-raw & citrus fruits like oranges & kinoo & lemons-no side effects of this home remedy. Do write back. Do not put load on legs by walking more, use all the 4 limbs -2 arms & 2 legs.

Cook a handful of rice in a half a lit of water in an open pan. When rice is ready don’t throw the residue water drink reason this water when it remains that much hot that you can consume. Drink it on adding 1 tsp of sugar. This relieves your leucorrhoea that within a week. This is one of the most common home remedies for leucorrhoea. Take pranacharya leucorest syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. And pranacharya leucona capsule 1-1 twice a day.

No sex done two days before your expected date of periods will not cause pregnancy, but this holds true only if your periods have a regular cycle of 25-28 days.

Many hormonal abnormalities can result in repeated miscarriages. Some of them can be tested using the following blood tests. Thyroid function test APLA Glucose tolerance test Anti nuclear antibodies. There can be other causes of repeated miscarriage as well. So suggest to consult an infertility specialist before getting pregnant next time to identify and correct the problem. Good luck.

She may be approaching menopause or already in menopause. In or near menopausal period, levels of hormones change so does the mood. That may be the reason of not having interest in sex. You have to handle her with cool mind. And gradually take her our of post menopausal syndrome.

Women’s health-Do No ignore

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Women’s health-Do No ignore
Women are not diagnosed or treated as aggressively as men. Even though more women than men die of heart disease each year, women receive only 33% of all angioplasties, stents and bypass surgeries; 28% of implantable defibrillators and 36% of open-heart surgeries, according to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. Although the traditional risk factors for coronary artery disease — such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity — have a detrimental impact in men and women, certain factors play a bigger role in the development of heart disease in women.

1. Metabolic syndrome — a combination of increased blood pressure, elevated blood glucose and triglycerides — has a greater impact on women than men.

2. Mental stress and depression affect women's hearts more than they do men's.

3. Smoking is much worse for women than men.

4. A low level of estrogen before menopause is a significant risk factor for developing microvascular disease.

5. Though women will often have some chest pain or discomfort, it may not be the most prominent symptom. Diffuse plaques build-up and diseased smaller arteries are two reasons why symptoms can be different in women.

6. In addition to chest pain, pressure or discomfort, signs and symptoms of heart attack in women include: Neck, shoulder, upper back or abdominal discomfort, Shortness of breath, Nausea or vomiting, Sweating, Light-headedness or dizziness and unusual fatigue.

7. Endothelial dysfunction is more common in women. In this the lining of the artery does not expand (dilate) properly to boost blood flow during activity, which increases the risk of coronary artery spasm and sudden death.

8. WISE study results suggest that the commonly used treatments for coronary artery disease — angioplasty and stenting — are not the best option for women with more diffuse plaques.

9. Typical tests for coronary artery disease — angiogram, treadmill testing and others — are not reliable in women.

10. The WISE study showed that in some women, plaques accumulate as an evenly spread layer along artery walls, which is not visible using traditional testing methods.

Dear Lybrate user, It is possible to have sexual intercourse during pregnancy. However, it is better to do it if there are no pregnancy related complications and your wife doesn't feel uncomfortable.
