I got hurt on my toe finger and its numb what to do?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
I got hurt on my toe finger and its numb what to do?
Dear, when the toe gets hurt the tissues surrounding the same gets swollen and bruised. The digital nerves get mildly compressed due to the swelling causing the numb feeling. This will usually get better over a period of 24 - 48 hrs. Take an anti inflammatory medication to ease the pain & reduce the swelling. An xray will help you to rule out a fracture. Thanks and regards Dr. Senthil kamalasekaran

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello , yes this is true certain foods can help in improving Alzheimer's disease.To reduce Alzheimer's risk, focus on healthy fats. Get plenty of omega-3 fats. Evidence suggests that the DHA found in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia by reducing beta-amyloid plaques. Food sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, and sardines.Here are few foods you should add into your diet that can help improve your mind:- Green leafy vegetables, Cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli, cauliflower,Beans and legumes.Whole grains, Berries and cherries,Pumpkin, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots and beets.Omega 3s. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and pecans,Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.Cinnamon, sage, tumeric and cumin.

Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3.Breath in deeply through the nose.

Keep your lungs filled. .5.Breathe out through the nose while humming.

Any alternative treatment for pituitary macroadenoma of size 4.5×4.7cm? I would not like to go for surgery.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Pituitary macroadenomas often require surgical intervention for cure. The exceptions to this rule are the macroprolactinomas, which usually have an excellent response to medical therapy. The tumor size may be diminished but often does not disappear completely. Medical treatment can play a role in reducing tumor size, controlling hormonal excess, or correcting hormonal deficiency.

Can Birth Conditions like Autism be Treated with Homeopathy?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Can Birth Conditions like Autism be Treated with Homeopathy?

Autism and the role of homeopathy in treating this condition

A mental condition that takes shape during early childhood, Autism is identified by characteristics like difficulty in communication, the use of language, understanding abstract concepts and building bonds with other people. This brain development disorder is also characterized by the performance of repetitive behaviors in the affected individual.

Homeopathy approach in treating Autism

Diagnosis of the condition by a homeopath requires the adoption of an extensive and intensive approach. From collecting detailed information about symptoms like a reaction to vaccines, thermal sensitivities and medical history of the family to understanding sleep postures; treatment of this condition requires an understanding of every vital factor associated with the condition. The hardcore approach is vital for understanding the stimulus/response connection of symptoms. This is because whenever an autistic child undergoes stressful situations, the reaction is a sign that a homeopath cannot ignore. By completely understanding the cycle of stress and reaction, a homeopath can only be able to suggest the right treatment program.

What about the remedies prescribed for treating the condition?

Being a holistic branch of medicine, homeopathy takes into account the complete physical as well as the mental makeup of the individual. Additionally, in this alternative medicine, the homeopath also takes into consideration the details of the disease while recommending remedies. Remedies like Carcinocin, Secretin and Thuja are favored the most for treating the condition. At the same time, the appropriate remedies are recommended after having a thorough understanding as to whether the individual falls within the constitutional makeup of the remedies considered.

Another essential aspect of this branch of medicine in the treatment of this brain development disorder is the practice of using LM potencies (homeopathic medicines on the last scale of potencies). These remedies are not only acted faster but are also gentler compared to others. They have been found to be very effective in preventing the individual from falling prey to the old symptoms and can be frequently repeated as well as used for a long time.

Give me an information about the migraine, why it's happened, give me a remedy for this.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The cause of migraines is still largely unknown. Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.
