Cold and cough since 6 months is much more worrying than knee pain, you will require an xray of the knee and and xray of the chest.

Insomnia And Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Insomnia And Homeopathy
  • Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which a person finds it difficult to fall asleep or to stay asleep. Insomnia also includes poor sleep quality, restless sleep, waking up several times during sleep, and feeling un-refreshed or tired after waking up. Homeopathy provides a very safe, effective and non-habit forming treatment of both types of insomnia — acute and chronic. Since the homeopathic medicines are sourced from natural substances, there are no side-effects.
  • While insomnia lasting less than a month is considered acute, if the condition continues for more than a month, it is referred to as chronic insomnia. There are various causes of insomnia. The prominent ones are stress, grief, depression, emotional disturbance, intake of stimulants like coffee and alcohol, and a huge number of medical reasons (like heart diseases, breathing disorders, thyroid problems, and rheumatoid arthritis). Insomnia is also one of the major concerns in elderly people.
  • Homoeopathy has natural remedies to cure this disorder permanently 
  • You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

It is a vaat disorder, means problem caused by vayu aggravation. You must hv a vaat pacifying diet and life style bcs its not too late. +warm food, moderately heavy textures, added butter and fat. +salt, sour, and sweet tastes; soothing and satisfying foods. +all soothing foods are good for settling disturbed vata. Use foods such as: warm milk, cream, butter, warm soups, stews, hot cereals, fresh baked bread. Since vata is a cold dry dosha, warm, nourishing foods such as these are good for stabilizing vata. On the other hand cold foods such as cold salads, iced drinks, raw vegetables and greens are not very good for persons with vata imbalance. +breakfast is highly recommended. Use hot cereals such as cream of rice or wheat or any other breakfast that is warm, milky, and sweet. +take a hot or herbal tea with snacks in the late afternoon. Avoid drinks with high caffeine as vata gets disturbed by it. +use spicy foods such as spicy mexican or indian foods that are cooked in oil. +use warm moist foods such as cooked grains and cereals, bowl of hot oatmeal or cup of steaming vegetable soup. +warm milk is good. You can add a little sugar or honey to it if you prefer. Avoid eating candies as it disturbs vata. +prefer salted nuts that are heavy and oily as opposed to dry salty snacks. +all sweet fruits are ok for vata. Avoid unripe fruits as they are astringent +take warm or hot water instead of ice water and drinks. +summary: breakfast is usually desirable. Hot foods and sweet and sour tastes. Reduce dry foods and bitter tastes. Warm or hot water and drinks. Raw nuts and nut butters. Spices: cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, ginger, cloves in moderation.

Studies have shown that fish oil can relieve tender joints and ease morning stiffness. It has also allowed some people to reduce the amount of conventional medication they take for RA. Servings of fish provide about one gram of omega-3 fatty acids per 3½ ounces of fish. If you choose to try fish oil supplements, talk to your doctor about a dosage. People with RA can often take a higher level of fish oil than is recommended for the general public, but there can be side effects. Higher doses of fish oil may interact with certain drugs, including those for high blood pressure. Increasing your intake of fiber from fruits, vegetables and whole grains may also help reduce inflammation. Studies show that adding fiber to the diet results in lower levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood; CRP is an indicator of inflammation.

If there is active inflammation and swelling then cold packs for 10 to 15 minutes three times a day can help. Good luck.
