ADHD - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

ADHD - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

A brain disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by a continuous pattern of hyperactivity and inattention, resulting in interference with normal development and functioning. The term is applied to both adults and children who exhibit these two characteristics over a long period of time. The condition is usually discovered during a child's early school years, between the third and sixth year (during which he or she may display problems associated with attention) and can go on into adulthood. Although medications are available under western medical science for treating this condition, they aren't free from any side effects.

Which remedies are generally used for treating ADHD?

Homeopathic remedies can help in easing some of the symptoms of this condition, making it easy for children to take part in normal school and social activities. A homeopath prescribes the relevant remedies after having a clear understanding of your characteristics. Some of the medicines that are used for treating the condition are Cina, Hyoscyamus Niger and Stramonium. While Cina is prescribed for alleviating aggressive behavior, Stramonium is recommended for treating fears or PTSD and Hyoscyamus Niger for sexualized or manic symptoms. But the one remedy that is most preferred for treating the varied symptoms of ADHD is Tarentula Hispana.

How is homeopathy different from conventional medicine?

When it comes to the homeopathic treatment approach for ADHD, it differs from conventional western medicine in two very different ways. Firstly, the treatment is personalized to suit your needs and health condition. For this reason, the remedy that is suggested to you differs from the one that is suggested to another individual. Such an approach allows a homeopath to better help you by addressing your specific symptoms compared to the conventional treatment of ADHD. Secondly, it treats the condition using smaller doses of the remedies and not higher doses so as to not aggravate the symptoms of ADHD.

In addition to being safe and non-toxic, when these homeopathic remedies are taken along with dietary modifications and lifestyle changes, they can bring about vital improvements in your health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Peripheral Artery Disease - How Can It Be Diagnosed & Treated?

Peripheral Artery Disease - How Can It Be Diagnosed & Treated?

Peripheral artery disease is a condition brought about by the partial blocking of the main arteries that carry pure blood from the heart to the different parts of the body. When the block occurs or when the flow of blood is restricted, then the functions are directly affected since they may not receive sufficient blood at regular intervals. The most frequently observed form of the peripheral artery disease is the feeling of pain in the legs while walking.

Though it is in the legs that most people seem to find the pain initially, there are other parts of the body like the arms, stomach, head and even the kidneys. As mentioned, the trouble starts when the body is not able to burn enough fat and it deposits itself in the inside walls of the blood vessels leading to these cramp like conditions. These deposits are also known as plaques. Within the medical field, the peripheral artery disease can also be identified or called by other names such as Atherosclerosis or peripheral vascular disease and so on.

Diagnosis of the disease
As with any health condition, the specialist will do a physical examination of the part which you complain is giving you the pain and will ask you a series of questions regarding your personal details, family history and any previous complaints of this sort or of different nature. The best way the doctors would confirm if it is a peripheral artery disease is by a process called ankle-brachial index. This involves finding the differential between the pressure of the blood in your body, in the arms which are closer to the heart, and the legs the farthest. This could reveal to the doctor if the rate of flow of blood to the farthest part like the feet is the same as to the arms. If the doctor finds a substantial difference in the blood circulation, then the doubt increases. The advanced diagnostic tests needed to confirm a case of peripheral artery disease include the Doppler and Ultrasound tests, Angiography and Magnetic resonance Angiography (MRA). These tests will give conclusive evidence to the doctor that it is indeed a case of peripheral artery disease.

Treatment for Peripheral Artery Disease
There are different ways in which the peripheral artery disease can be countered. One way is to change the lifestyle and food habits of the affected person. Since it is obvious that the deposition of plaque from the fatty foods consumed by the person is responsible for the condition, merely stopping the consumption of such items can have a salutary effect. Other steps like quit smoking, if you were into this bad habit, exercising regularly and taking suitable medication as prescribed can treat the condition. In severe cases, procedures like Angioplasty might have to be performed.

Dear Lybrate user. Many people think that they are ADDICTED to masturbation / sex, where as they are actually just used to masturbate / have sex regularly and can’t quit easily. Addiction is problematic and being used to is not, though there is only a thin line separating both. Masturbation / sex is not harmful as long as it is not an addiction. We need to determine if you are addicted or just used to. Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Hi , Mera pet me bahut gas hota hai iska solution kya hai jis se mera pet me gas nahi bane.

Hi , Mera pet me bahut gas hota hai iska solution kya hai jis se mera pet me gas nahi bane.
Dear, Gas in the digestive tract is usually caused by swallowing air and by the breakdown of certain foods in the large intestine by bacteria. Everyone swallows a small amount of air when eating and drinking. The amount of air swallowed increases when people eat or drink too fast, smoke, chew gum, suck on hard candy, drink carbonated or “fizzy” drinks To prevent gas from forming, chew a fresh piece of ginger regularly after meals. You can also add small amounts of dried or fresh ginger to your food. Drinking ginger tea can help control the formation of gas in the stomach. Boil one tablespoon of ground ginger in water for a few minutes. Drink this tea two or three times a day.

As per your concern I would suggest you some remedy mix triphala powder in water. Keep it away for half an hour. Add a table spoon of pure honey. Have this in early morning daily. Raw onion dish eaten daily also can fix the matter. Have sweet soup made up of black gram. Combine black gram, rice, wheat and long pepper in equal quantities. Grind them to form powder. Fry the mixture in pure clarified butter so cook it with milk. Eat when adding sugar to that. Causes: consistent with ayurvedic concepts, nightfall is because of vata irritation. Quickness is the primary nature of vata. Its affectability is expanded by over considering sex. So for the curing of nightfall vata ought to be cured and adjusted. Overindulgence in sexual considering, constipation, unhealthy diet, low water intake are likewise a percentage of the fundamental driver of the nightfall. This remedy will be helpful.

Home Remedy for Acidity
Home remedy for acidity

Causes & symptoms of acidity

Acidity is the cause of surplus secretion of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach. Our stomach secretes an acid, which is necessary for the digestive process. This acid, in turn, produces various digestive enzymes, like pepsin, which help in the breaking complex food particles into elements that can be easily digested by the body. When there secretion of acid is more than necessary, it results in the feeling of immense heartburn, along with a sensation of inflammation in the throat. This condition has been given the name of acidity. Its other symptoms include formation of ulcers and dyspepsia. Consumption of alcohol, highly spicy food and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaid's) also trigger acid formation and result in acidity.
