Hello- Menses is the natural way of detoxifying a female's body every month. Any obstruction or irregularity in its flow promotes the re-absorption of these toxins in the body resulting in skin disease (Acne ,pimple etc). This is the reason why blood purifying agents works good in this condition. Follow these to regularize your menses. -Consume cows ghee.(Its the only natural fat which promotes normal menses due to its rich Omega-3 and other vital components) -Keep you bowel clean. Gaseous distension sometimes obstruct the menstrual; blood flow. -Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. -Drink plenty of water to detoxify your body. -Start Basti treatment of ayurveda.

She is feeling too much pain during her periods. Tell me the reason and medicine to cure this.

She is feeling too much pain during her periods. Tell me the reason and medicine to cure this.
Painful periods can be due to a number of causes. These include ovarian cysts, uterine tumours, endometriosis, pelvic infection. However most commonly they are related to prostaglandin imbalance specially in younger women. I would advice Drotin-M tablet 1 tab thrice daily after food during periods and see if that makes a difference.If not she needs a transvaginal USG done

Homeopathic Remedies For Shingles and Herpes

Homeopathic Remedies For Shingles and Herpes

Viruses, the bad ones, in particular, can have serious effects on the body which a person would not like to have, in any case. This is surely true when the case of herpes zoster is being talked about. This form of herpes is commonly known as shingles. But what if there was a proper solution to this issue?

When a person has blisters forming and causing a rash in a limited area, shingles is likely to be the cause of the same.

What is interesting to know too many people is the fact that the virus which is responsible for shingles or herpes zoster is the same one which is the cause for chickenpox! This virus is never cleared out even when the symptoms of chickenpox have long left the body of the person who had it. As a matter of fact, in some cases, it does reappear and affects the body again except this time in the form of shingles. However, doctors do not know why this occurs. Is that not weird? Most people who have the bad luck of having to deal with shingles are over sixty years of age. While knowing all this is quite beneficial, what about the treatment of shingles?

When it comes to the homeopathic treatment of shingles, there is a range of options which can be made use of. That being said, it is of the highest importance to keep in mind the fact that medicine should only be taken as per the prescription of a trained professional in homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy can treat shingles very effectively. The results are very prompt in the pains and eruptions. Shingles can affect any age group. Usually shigles indicate lowered immunity. Since they are viral infections, least can be done with anibiotics. Homeopathy boosts the immunity. Genital herpes can also be very effectively treated with Homeopathy.

Arsenicum album is one of the most popular medicines from the homeopathic field. In most of the cases where it is ideally used, the patient is undergoing pain with a burning sensation on the affected area of the skin. When a rash begins to form, there is normally some tingling in the skin in the run up to it.

Homeopathic treatment is so good that there is medicine to nip the problem in the bud before it has the chance to cause the affected person a whole deal of anguish. Aconite is the medicine, in this case.

Hepar sulphur and Rhus Toxicodendron are also used often over the course of treatment. The former is useful especially for people with unhealthy skin while the latter is commonly used for herpes of the face and around the joints.If If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you canconsult a homeopath.

Sir I have taken 3 unwanted 72 in four months. Does it cause any effect to me and how much can we take in 6 months.

Sir I have taken 3 unwanted 72 in four months. Does it cause any effect to me and how much can we take in 6 months.
As I pill/ unwanted 72 type of tabs have high hormones it is not used as regular family planning method so learn about family planning methods and choose one for future. There are many temporary family planning methods like oral pills, injectable hormones, Intra uterine devices, condoms, diaphragms, safe period, coitus interruptus etc. You must know about success and failure rates of all as well as advantages and dis-advantages of all to decide which suits you the best. May be consult Gynecologist as a couple.
