    Psoriasis is a common chronic auto immune inflammatory skin disease marked by circumscribed scaly macules affecting chiefly the extensor surfaces of the body characterized by Thickening of the epidermis, tortuous and dilated blood vessels, sharply demarcated erythematous plaque with silvery white scale.

    Three Cardinal Signs of psoriasis are plaque elevation, Erythema, Scales.

    Clinically psoriasis can be divided in to several types as follows Gutted, Chronic Plaque, Pustular, Erythroderma, Nail Psoriasis, Flexural, Arthropathy psoriasis.

    Guttate psoriasis occurs in children, adolescents, and young adults It manifests as an erythematous, papular eruption with lesions less than 1 cm in diameter on the trunk and extremities.
    Chronic plaque (psoriasis vulgaris) form comprising approximately 90 percent of cases. Sharply demarcated erythematous silvery scaling plaques occur most commonly on the extensor surface of the elbows, knees, scalp, sacral, and groin regions. Other involved areas include the ears, glans penis, perianal region, and sites of repeated trauma.
    Pustular psoriasis is also an acute psoriatic eruption. The patient presents with fever and small monomorphic painful sterile pustules, often precipitated by secondary infection may leads to septicemia. It can be localized to the palms and soles (palmar-plantar psoriasis) or it can be generalized and potentially life-threatening.
    Erythrodermic psoriasis, also life threatening, involves the entire body surface and can result in hypothermia, hypoalbuminemia, anemia, infection, and cardiac failure.
    Psoriatic nail disease occurs in approximately 50 percent of psoriasis patients and most commonly manifests as pitting.
    Risky factors

    Anyone can develop psoriasis, but these factors can increase your risk of developing the disease:

    Family history.Perhaps the most significant risk factor for psoriasis is having a family history of the disease. About 40 percent of people with psoriasis have a family member with the disease.
    Stress.Because stress can impact your immune system, high stress levels may increase your risk of psoriasis.
    Obesity.Excess weight increases your risk of inverse psoriasis. In addition, plaques associated with all types of psoriasis often develop in skin creases and folds.
    Smoking.Smoking tobacco not only increases your risk of psoriasis but also may increase the severity of the disease. Smoking may also play a role in the initial development of the disease.
    Viral and bacterial infections.People with HIV are more likely to develop psoriasis than people with healthy immune systems are. Children and young adults with recurring infections, particularly strep throat, also may be at increased risk.

    In order to properly understand the immune dysfunction present in psoriasis, it is important to understand the normal immune response of skin. Skin is a primary lymphoid organ with an effective immunological surveillance system equipped with antigen presenting cells, cytokine synthesizing keratinocytes, epidermotropic T cells, dermal capillary endothelial cells, draining nodes, mast cells, tissue macrophages, granulocytes, fibroblasts, and non-Langerhans cells. Skin also has lymph nodes and circulating T lymphocytes. Together these cells communicate by means of cytokine secretion and respond accordingly via stimulation by bacteria, chemical, ultraviolet light, and other irritating factors. Generally, this is a controlled process unless there is some prolonged continues disturbance in physical or mental level which leads to imbalanced cytokine production leads to a pathological state such as psoriasis.


    Psoriasis signs and symptoms vary according to the morphology, stage, type and anatomical site of involvement of the psoriasis rashes, which are scaly red plaques.

    Psoriasis is characterized by the development of erythematous (reddish), well defined, dry, scaly, papules and plaques of sizes ranging from a pin head to palm sized or larger. Lesions have a full rich red color in the skin of Caucasians. Rarely, lesions on the legs or trunk may show a violaceous or bluish hue.

    Pustular psoriasis can be life threatening were patient presents with fever and small monomorphic, painful, sterile pustules, often precipitated by secondary infection and may leads to septicemia.


    Depending on the type and location of the psoriasis and how widespread the disease is, psoriasis can cause complications. These include:

    Thickened skin and bacterial skin infections caused by scratching in an attempt to relieve severe itching

    Fluid and electrolyte imbalance in the case of severe Pustular psoriasis

    Low self-esteem, Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Social isolation

    If you have psoriasis, you're at greater risk of developing certain diseases, such as metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that include high blood pressure and elevated insulin levels, inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease and cancers.

    Psoriatic arthritis can be debilitating and painful, making it difficult to go about your daily routine. Despite medications, psoriatic arthritis can cause joint damage.


    Physical examination Carefully examining skin, scalp, fingernails, and toenails for reddening or scaling skin that is characteristic of psoriasis. Small pits on the fingernails are also signs of psoriasis. Doctor will also examine joints for signs of psoriatic arthritis.

    Treatment in Genetic Homoeopathy

    Complete History of patient i.e. Family history, past history since his child hood till date, Personal history in order to assess the cause, and also to find out the constitution of the particular person. Based on this analysis Genetic constitutional medicine is given along with other genetic combination medicines, which work on genetic level and there for progress of disease and complications are nullified and leads to cure. Some of commonly used homoeopathic medicines in psoriasis are as follows but should be taken under strict medical supervision Kali ars, Baryta carb, Nit acid, Graphitis, Staph, Sepia, Lycopodium, Kali carb, Kali Phos, Bryonia, Merc sol etc.

    Vitiligo / Leucoderma is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. Similar patches also appear on both the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose) and the retina (inner layer of the eyeball). The hair that grows on areas affected by vitiligo sometimes turns white.

    There is strong evidence that people with vitiligo inherit genes that make them susceptible to depigmentation. The most widely accepted view is that the depigmentation occurs because vitiligo is an autoimmune disease a disease in which a person's immune system reacts against the bodies own organs or tissues. People's bodies produce proteins called cytokines that, in vitiligo, alter their pigment-producing cells and cause these cells to die. Another theory is that melanocytes destroy themselves such as sunburn or emotional distress, triggered Vitiligo.

    Who can be Affected by Vitiligo?

    About 0.5 to 1 percent of the world's population have vitiligo. The average age of onset is in the mid-twenties, but it can appear at any age. The disorder affects both sexes and all races equally; however, it is more noticeable in people with dark skin. Vitiligo seems to be somewhat more common in people with certain autoimmune diseases, including hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland), adrenocortical insufficiency (the adrenal gland does not produce enough of the hormone called corticosteroid), alopecia areata (patches of baldness), and pernicious anemia (a low level of red blood cells caused by the failure of the body to absorb vitamin B12). Vitiligo runs in families. Children whose parents have the disorder are more likely to develop vitiligo. However, most children will not get vitiligo even if a parent has it, and most people with vitiligo do not have a family history of the disorder.

    Symptoms of Vitiligo

    People who develop vitiligo usually first notice white patches (depigmentation) on their skin. These patches are more commonly found on sun-exposed areas of the body, including the hands, feet, arms, face, and lips. Other common areas for white patches to appear are the armpits and groin and around the mouth, eyes, nostrils, navel, genitals, and rectum.

    Vitiligo generally appears in one of three patterns:

    Focal pattern depigmentation limited to one or only a few areas.

    Segmental pattern depigmented patches that develop on one side of the body only.

    Generalized pattern the most common pattern. Depigmentation occurs symmetrically on both sides of the body.

    In addition to white patches on the skin, people with vitiligo may have premature graying of the scalp hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard. People with dark skin may notice a loss of color inside their mouths.

    Will the vitiligo Patches Spread?

    Focal pattern vitiligo and segmental vitiligo remain localized to one part of the body and do not spread. There is no way to predict if generalized vitiligo will spread. For some people, the depigmented patches do not spread. The disorder is usually progressive, however, and over time the white patches will spread to other areas of the body. For some people, vitiligo spreads slowly, over many years. For other people, spreading occurs rapidly. Some people have reported additional depigmentation following periods of physical or emotional stress.

    How Can People Cope With the Emotional and Psychological Aspects of Vitiligo?

    Although vitiligo emotional and psychological effects can be devastating.

    White patches of vitiligo can affect emotional and psychological well-being and self-esteem. People with vitiligo can experience emotional stress, particularly if the condition develops on visible areas of the body (such as the face, hands, arms, and feet) or on the genitals. Adolescents, who are often particularly concerned about their appearance, can be devastated by widespread vitiligo. Some people who have vitiligo feel embarrassed, ashamed, depressed, or worried about how others will react.

    Fortunately, there are several strategies to help people cope with vitiligo. Also, various treatments discussed in the next section can minimize, camouflage, or, in some cases, even eliminate white patches. First, it is important to find a doctor who is knowledgeable about the disorder and takes it seriously. You must let your doctor know if you are feeling depressed, because doctors and other mental health professionals can help people deal with depression.

    Complications of Vitiligo

    Vitiligo is a skin disorder which produces milky white patches on skin. The treatments that are currently available just help in re-pigmentation of the milky white patches that are produced by vitiligo. Vitiligo has several different complications; in this post I will discuss these complications so that people with vitiligo can have a better understanding of vitiligo.

    As vitiligo is thought to be related with other autoimmune diseases so you may be at increased risk to other autoimmune diseases such as thyroid conditions, such as hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), pernicious anemia (an autoimmune disease which affects your stomach), and diabetes mellitus (a chronic condition that is caused by too much sugar in the blood).

    Other complications that vitiligo can have are related to the eyes and ears. You may also experience lack of pigment in parts of your eye especially in the layers of tissue that surround the outer surface of your retina, choroids or uveitis. Another problem which vitiligo can cause is the partial loss of hearing.

    The major complication that vitiligo causes are not related to physical health, infact these complications are linked with the mental health. As most of the people are concerned about their appearance so this sudden change in appearance caused by vitiligo effects the mental health. Vitiligo may affect your self confidence. For dealing with these mental health problems you must consult a psychologist as he/she can help you in overcoming the psychosocial problems you are facing.

    If the change in appearance caused by vitiligo has become a big problem for you then you must opt a re-pigmentation treatment so that your skin becomes uniform in color.

    How effective is homoeopathy?

    Homoeopathy cures Vitiligo that is due to the fact that homoeopathic treatment enhances the natural production of pigments. According to homoeopathic philosophy Vitiligo not a disease in itself but an expression of an inner disturbed state of the body. Thus, the cure should occur at a level where things have gone wrong. In order to archive this, the patient is analyzed on various aspects of mental and physical and familial attributes and also a complete study is done on the psychological-environment that the patient has gone through in his life. The prescription is then based at the deepest level of understanding of the patient?s disturbed inner force. Although many homoeopathic medicines Arsenic Sulph Falvus, Arsenic Album , Baryta Mur and Baryta Carb are known to give good results in Vitiligo; I would again reiterate the fact that real cure of Vitiligo occurs when the prescription is made according to the true principles of homoeopathic philosophy i.e. treating that ?deep causative factor ? which caused this inner disturbance. Also remember that Vitiligo is a chronic disorder and can take considerable time even with the best of the homoeopathic treatment, for it to be completely cured

    Always suspected there was a connection between food and sex, but didn’t know exactly what it is? Here’s the relation between what you put into your mouth and your libido! Read on to know the fact of the matter.
    Chocolate: You guessed it right! Chocolate is the most enjoyable of foods and needs no cooking! Chocolates contain methylxanthines that increase your sensitivity to touch and phenylethlamine increases the level of excitement that a person perceives. Dark chocolate is the best as it has high levels of cocoa. The dopamine levels get elevated in the body which gives a rush similar to the one after
    Watermelon: This humble fruit has citruline that makes the blood vessels expand thus increasing the blood flow to the pelvic organs. Whip it into a juice or smoothie or enjoy it cut up. Other fruits to add to your diet when sex is on your mind are pomegranates, figs, tomatoes and apples. Another fruit which deserves mention is the banana. Not only is it phallic shaped, it is loaded with potassium and other minerals. Enriched with potassium and folic acid which kick start your stamina and energy levels, avocados are a must-try.
    Spices: Garlic when cooked has aphrodisiac properties. Some studies also give a thumbs-up to cinnamon and nutmeg. Ginseng is popular in the Far East as a sex drive enhancer.
    Olives: In ancient Greek civilizations, olives were used liberally as an aphrodisiac. Research corroborates that green olives are helpful to men while women get a sexual boost with the black variety.
    Oysters: Apart from their distinctive shape resembling the female genitalia, oysters are choc-o-block with zinc that induces release of sex hormones. Clams and mussels also have a similar effect.
    Honey: Apart from its medicinal properties in curing coughs, honey can also boost your sex drive. Have a spoonful daily and feel the difference.
    Alcohol: Red wine and champagne are your best bets on date nights. But beware, indulging in too much alcohol may increase desire, but dampen performance.
    Peppers and chillies: Want to spice up your sex life? Spice up your food first, suggests research conducted by various organizations. Green, yellow and red peppers can be added to your salad, pasta or vegetable dish while green chillies can be incorporated into soups and curries.
    Almonds: Almonds are great for snacking as they are full of good fats, fibre and vitamin E and also work on your sagging libido in more than one way. Almond oil used as a part of aromatherapy is said to fire the female libido.
    Caffeine: Caffeine in small amounts gives you a kick, extra energy or that zing which can definitely put you into the mood for foreplay and intercourse.
    Omega 3 fatty acids: Salmon and other fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids increase the levels of serotonin which is the feel good hormone produced by the body that explains why it acts as an aphrodisiac.
    These are also termed as anti-aphrodisiacs because they decrease your sex drive and performance considerably. Foods that come under this category are steaks with potatoes, a big helping of pasta with a creamy sauce and the like. If you have too many carbs, you feel sleepy after your dinner and snooze will take precedence over sex. Same applies for red meats like rich cuts of lamb, beef and organ meats. Your body spends so much energy digesting the heavy food that there is no energy for pleasure after such a meal.

    If you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), eating well can help manage some of the long term complications of this condition. Read on to learn about the best nutrition choices you can make if you have PCOS.
    What is PCOS?
    PCOS is a condition that affects women. It is caused by an imbalance of a woman’s sex hormones which may lead to:
    Menstrual cycle changes
    Skin problems such as acne
    Increased hair growth on the face and body
    Cysts in the ovaries and
    Trouble getting pregnant
    PCOS affects up to 10 percent of women. It may be genetic since women with PCOS are likely to have a mother or sister with PCOS. Women are usually diagnosed in their 20s or 30s, or sometimes when they are teenagers.
    PCOS and weight gain
    If you have PCOS, your body makes too much androgen. Androgen is often called the "male hormone," but small amounts are made in women’s bodies too. If your body makes too much androgen, it can lead to weight gain, especially around the belly area. This type of weight gain can increase the risk of:
    High cholesterol
    High blood pressure
    High blood sugar
    High triglycerides
    Heart disease and

    Tips for maintaining a healthy weight with PCOS
    There is no specific diet that can prevent or treat PCOS. However, eating well and being active can help manage some of long term complications of PCOS. The good news is that losing anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can help with weight-related health problems.
    The best eating plan if you have PCOS is one that helps you manage your weight and also lower the long term risks of diabetes and heart disease. This plan should be low in saturated fat and high in fibre.
    Choose better fats:
    Too much saturated and trans fat in the diet can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Limit foods that contain saturated and trans fats. Instead of these bad fats, choose smaller amounts of healthy unsaturated fats, which are found in vegetable oils like canola and olive oil, avocado and nuts. Aim for a total of 30 to 45mL (2 to 3 Tbsp) of healthy fats each day. You can learn more about choosing healthy fats here.
    Increase fibre:
    Eating more fibre can help maintain blood sugar levels and lower your cholesterol. Plus, fibre helps make you feel full, so you tend to eat less. This can help with weight control. Aim for 21 to 25 grams per day. Here are some high fibre foods to try:
    Fruit – especially berries, pears, oranges, figs, kiwi
    Vegetables – especially peas, spinach, squash and broccoli
    Whole grains – such as oats, brown rice, whole wheat, quinoa, barley and buckwheat
    Legumes – such as lentils, chickpeas, soybeans and kidney beans
    Cereals made with wheat bran, psyllium or whole grain oats
    Nuts and seeds – such as almonds, flax, sunflower seeds
    Enjoy protein:
    Similar to fibre, protein also helps you feel full for longer, so you will eat less. This is a great way to help control your weight. Make sure that you have some protein at every meal and snack like chicken, turkey, beef or fish. Or, try vegetarian options such as legumes, soy or a quarter cup of nuts or seeds. Milk and low fat yogurt are also good sources of protein.
    Foods to limit:
    Some foods cause weight gain if you eat them often. Choose fewer foods that are high in sugar, salt, refined flour and fat such as:
    White rice, pasta or bread
    Baked goods
    Regular soda
    Candy and chocolate and
    Salty snacks
    Be active:
    Try to get at least 2 ½ hours of exercise each week. Start with 10 minutes of activity and work up to longer times as your body adjusts. Review the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for activity ideas. Even if you don’t lose weight, exercise can help control your blood sugar and cholesterol levels and lower your risk for heart disease and diabetes.

    \“Diet and exercise” – that’s the mantra that most people swear by, when it comes to losing weight the healthy way. But the word “diet” is more than just the food put on a plate. A very important component of a healthy diet is the amount of water a person drinks in a day.
    While drinking water is not a magic pill to shed those pounds faster, not being adequately hydrated could make weight loss a little harder.
    Why do you need to drink water?
    Water helps your body to function correctly. Water is required for a number of chemical reactions and metabolic processes that take place in individual cells, tissues and organs. But if you don’t drink sufficient water, these reactions and processes will not function the way they’re supposed to. And this could affect your overall metabolism.
    Let’s look at some of the ways water can help you in your weight loss program.
    You’re not hungry… you’re just thirsty!
    Sometimes, the body is not able to differentiate between hunger and thirst. So if you feel hungry and tempted to snack on high-calorie food, have a glass of water first. It could be that you are, in fact, just thirsty and the glass of water would make you feel full and prevent you from consuming the extra calories.
    Water can help you eat less
    Drinking water some time before a meal has its benefits in overall weight loss, possibly because you feel full and therefore tend to eat smaller portions of food at mealtime.
    In one study, people who drank water before a meal ate about 75 calories fewer during the meal. That, in itself, may not seem like much. But 75 x 365 (days in a year) means 27375 calories less in a year, which corresponds to an approximately 4 kilo weight loss, without much effort on your part.
    Water can help you digest your food better
    Drinking sufficient quantities of water is also important for your kidneys to function correctly and reduce the risk of kidney stones. Water also helps to prevent constipation.
    Research seems to confirm the benefits of water during weight loss
    There is no place here to discuss all the studies that talk about weight loss and water. But let us look at two studies:
    In one study, there were 48 overweight and obese middle-aged adults who were put on a low-calorie diet. Some of them were asked to drink about 500 ml of water before each of their three meals a day. At the end of three months, those who drank the extra water lost about 2 kgs more than those who didn’t drink water.
    Another study looked at how people tend to gain weight as they get older. This study was carried out over 4 years. Those who had a higher intake of water and those who substituted their sugar-sweetened beverage consumption with water were less likely to put on weight over the years.
    To drink or not to drink
    If you are on a diet to lose weight, you will definitely be keeping an eye on your calories on your plate. But remember to watch your fluid intake as well!
    Here’s a quick list of what you should drink and what you should stay a mile away from, when losing weight.
    Keep these at reach:
    Water: If you’ve read this article, then you are already aware of how important and healthy it is to drink water and stay hydrated, when trying to lose weight
    100% fruit juice: make sure you check the label first. Fruit juice often comes with added sugars and those can be high in calorie, though high in nutritive value
    Vegetable juice: While vegetable juice is often as nutritious as fruit juices, they often come with fewer calories and a lot of fibre
    Skimmed or low-fat milk: by giving you the goodness of calcium with far less calories, the low fat milk option is much better than whole milk, when on a diet.
    Black coffee: coffee is a good source of anti-oxidants and largely calorie-free, just as long as it’s black.
    Green tea: another great source of antioxidants, green tea may also aid weight loss
    Stay away from
    Carbonated drinks: high in calories and low in nutrition, it’s best to avoid these – whether you’re on a diet or not
    Fruit juices with sugar: some fruit juices have as much sugar added as carbonated drinks. Make sure you check the labels before buying these
    Energy drinks: once again, check the label on these products first. While energy drinks provide a boost of much-needed energy, they are often high calorie drinks
    Alcohol: alcohol is high in calories, and that is without counting the fried snacks or nuts that usually accompany a glass of alcohol
    According to a study, drinking 500 ml of water before every meal could help weight loss

    There's no strong scientific evidence that specific foods can impact psoriasis, but there is evidence that losing extra weight can ease symptoms. Nutritionists and physicians recommend a healthy, balanced diet to control your weight and your psoriasis, as well as lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke (which are elevated in people with psoriasis).
    Best Food For Psoriasis
    Carrots and squash
    "A diet that's high in fruits and vegetables can have an anti-inflammatory effect,". And although there are no studies connecting fruits and vegetables specifically with a reduction in psoriasis symptoms, psoriasis is an inflammatory condition. Specific vegetables that might have inflammation fighting properties include carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and broccoli.
    Fish and seafood
    Omega-3 fatty acids abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and albacore tuna are the foundation of a heart healthy diet. Fish oils are thought to reduce inflammation and help the immune system, which is overactive in people with psoriasis. Given that psoriasis is also linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke, it's a good idea to eat fish at least twice a week.
    Grains such as whole grain bread, cereal, and pasta; oatmeal; and brown rice are another component of an overall healthy diet. Like fruits and vegetables, grains also contain a variety of anti inflammation antioxidants and are high in fiber, which has been linked with lower inflammation levels and better regulation of blood sugar. Legumes such as beans and lentils also have antioxidants and fiber, so include them in your diet as well.
    Nuts and avocados
    Fats in general get a bad rap, but there are such things as "good fats." These include the polyunsaturated fats found in nuts, vegetable oils, and avocados, and monounsaturated fats found in soybean oil, walnuts, flaxseed, and certain fish. They're good for you in general (when taken in moderation, of course they still can pack in the calories). Stay away from saturated fats and trans fats, which may increase inflammation in the body.
    Not only do blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties, but also lots of vitamin C, manganese (good for bone health), and fiber. All this while low in fat. Other fruits that may have anti-inflammatory properties include mangoes, strawberries, and figs. But you really can’t go wrong with any fruits, which are right up there with vegetables on the “good-for-you” list. Scientists are only just beginning to uncover other healthful properties of fruits. Blueberries, for instance, may also boost memory and fight heart disease.

    Psoriasis being a constitutional trouble, it requires deep acting genetic constitutional remedy along with other combination medicines. This by acting at genetic level stops the progress of complications of psoriasis and nullifies them completely. Further the medicines work towards impeding the proliferation of skin cells which inevitably alleviates excessive scaling and stimulate the body’s own healing potential by restoring balance of the immune system and countering the genetic predisposition some of commonly used homoeopathic medicines in psoriasis are Graphitis, Natrum Mur, Lycopodium, Sulphar, Sepia, staphysagria, Baryta carb, prosperous, pulsatilla but should be taken under strict medical supervision.
    Psoriasis is an obstinate and chronic disease. There is no shortcut to its cure.The length of treatment varies form case to case, depending of the following factors:
    Duration of Psoriasis
    Areas affected. Affection of scalp and nails takes longer.
    Extent of spread Psoriasis only on skin is easier to treat. Joint affection (Psoriatic Arthritis) require longer duration.
    Previous medication (Extensive use o oral cortisone may delay the course of treatment)
    General health and associated diseases

    Folate deficiency - patients with severe psoriasis have a risk of developing folate deficiency. Folate is a B vitamin that is vital for proper nerve function; it also prevents birth defects. Folate also prevents high levels of homocysteine, which increase the risk of heart disease.
    Heart problems, obesity and diabetes - a higher percentage of individuals with psoriasis develop heart problems, diabetes and/or obesity. Experts do not know whether there is a genetic link between these conditions and psoriasis. People with moderate-severe psoriasis, ideally should be tested for these conditions. Experts from UC Davis explained in Archives of Dermatology that fat cells in patients with psoriasis secrete cytokines that raise insulin resistance in the liver and muscle, which initiates the destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas.
    Bad body temperature regulation - patients with erythrodermic psoriasis may have abnormalities in the body’s ability to control temperature.
    Zumbusch psoriasis - this is a combination of erythrodermic and pustular psoriasis. The condition may develop suddenly. The patient may experience fever, chills, muscle weakness and weight loss. Sometimes there may be an over-accumulation of fluids, protein loss, and electrolyte imbalances; in such cases the patient may need to be hospitalized until fluid, chemical balances and body temperature are normalized. Zumbusch psoriasis is especially dangerous if the patient is elderly.
    Psoriatic arthritis - in the majority of cases, psoriatic arthritis symptoms are mild. However, the following complications are possible:
    Arthritis mutilans - an extremely severe form of chronic rheumatoid arthritis, in which the bones are reabsorbed, resulting in the collapse of soft tissue. When the hands are affected it can cause a phenomenon called telescoping fingers; the feet may also be affected. Patients with other arthritic conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the joints of the fingers have a higher risk.
    Risk of developing psoriatic arthritis - it is estimated that between 10% and 20% of all patients with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis; in about 20% of these people the arthritis symptoms occur before the psoriasis ones.
    Cancers - patients with severe psoriasis who received systemic medications (those that affect the whole body) have a higher risk of developing skin cancers and lymphomas.
    Psychological and emotional consequences - living with psoriasis often has emotional and social consequences.
    Patients may feel embarrassed by having visible plaques and that can lead to depression. In some cases the individual may withdraw from society.
    Symptoms may become so severe that patients have to leave their jobs, further increasing the risk of psychological and emotional problems.
    Several surveys have shown that a significant number of patients with psoriasis report a negative mental and physical impact that is similar to several chronic conditions, including cancer, hypertension, heart disease, depression and diabetes.
    According to a national survey (USA) Psoriasis Uncovered of people with the most severe form of psoriasis:
    20% say that their psoriasis contributed towards the loss of a job or resignation.
    25% believe that their psoriasis has caused an intimate relationship to end.
    43% said psoriasis had prevented them from making new friends.
    83% expressed dissatisfaction with their current treatment.
    The majority of GPs (general practitioners, primary care physicians), specialists and other health care professionals know and understand that psoriasis has an emotional and psychological impact. It is important that the patient discusses any concerns and anxiety they may have.

    Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that occurs in children and adults. The typical appearance is of red, thickened, scaly patches on the skin (plaques). These plaques can vary in size and distribution from person to person. In some people it may affect small areas of skin while others may have large areas covering their body.
    What kinds of psoriasis occur in children?
    1.Each of the patterns of psoriasis described in adults can be seen in children. These include:
    Flexural psoriasis (red areas between skin folds)
    Scalp psoriasis (thick scales found on areas of the scalp)
    Nail psoriasis (nail dystrophy related to psoriasis)
    Acute guttate psoriasis (small red plaques occurring after an infection)
    Chronic plaque psoriasis (red plaques with scaling occurring anywhere on the body)
    Erythrodermic psoriasis (severe reddening covering most or all of the body)
    Pustular psoriasis (severe pustules that arise acutely)
    Photosensitive psoriasis (affecting areas of sun exposure)
    Guttate, facial and flexural psoriasis are particularly common in children.
    What causes psoriasis?
    Psoriasis has a strong genetic component and is due to abnormal processes involved in regulation of the immune system.
    Individuals may have flares in psoriasis in response to stress, injury, medications and infections (particularly streptococcal tonsillitis).
    Psoriasis is not contagious, therefore, affected children do not need to be isolated from other children.
    How is the diagnosis made?
    The diagnosis of psoriasis is usually made clinically. This involves a doctor examining the skin and making the diagnosis based on the appearance of the affected areas.
    The plaques tend to be distributed symmetrically.
    They favour certain sites such as scalp, elbows and knees; or; skin folds such as behind ears, armpits and groin.
    They are well circumscribed, red and scaly.
    There is often a family history of psoriasis.
    Occasionally, a skin biopsy may be necessary to distinguish psoriasis from other skin conditions that may appear similar.
    How is the severity of psoriasis assessed?
    Assessing severity of psoriasis can assist in deciding upon the most appropriate course of treatment. Severity of psoriasis can be determined in the following ways:
    calculate the body surface area involved
    estimate a PASI score (psoriasis area and severity index)
    use a questionnaire to assess a person’s quality of life.
    PASI score
    A PASI score is a tool used to measure the severity and extent of psoriasis (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index). It takes a few minutes and experience to calculate it accurately.
    A representative area of psoriasis is selected for each body region. The intensity of redness, thickness and scaling of the psoriasis is assessed as none (0), mild (1), moderate (2), severe (3) or very severe (4).

    Many of us have had a wart somewhere on our bodies at some time. Other than being a nuisance, most warts are harmless. More common in kids than in adults, warts are skin infections caused by viruses of the human papillomavirus family. They can affect any area of the body, but tend to invade warm, moist places, like small cuts or scratches on the fingers, hands, and feet. Warts are usually painless unless they're on the soles of the feet or another part of the body that gets bumped or touched all the time.
    Types of warts :
    Common warts.
    Usually found on fingers, hands, knees, and elbows, a common wart is a small, hard bump that's dome-shaped and usually grayish-brown. It has a rough surface that may look like the head of a cauliflower, with black dots inside.
    Flat warts.
    These are about the size of a pinhead, are smoother than other kinds of warts, and have flat tops. Flat warts may be pink, light brown, or yellow. Most kids who get flat warts have them on their faces, but they can also grow on arms, knees, or hands and can appear in clusters.
    Plantar warts.
    Found on the bottom of the foot, plantar warts can be very uncomfortable like walking on a small stone. Filiform warts. These have a finger-like shape, are usually flesh-colored, and often grow on or around the mouth, eyes, or nose. Sometimes warts are sexually transmitted and appear in the genital area, but most warts appear on the fingers, hands, and feet.
    Are Warts Contagious?
    Simply touching a wart on someone doesn't guarantee that you'll get one, too. But the viruses that cause warts are passed from person to person by close physical contact or from a surface that a person with a wart touches, like a bathmat or a shower floor.
    A tiny cut or scratch can make any area of skin more vulnerable to warts. Also, picking at a wart can spread warts to other parts of the body.
    The length of time between when someone is exposed to the virus that causes warts and when a wart appears varies. Warts can grow very slowly and may take weeks or longer, in some cases, to develop.
    Preventing Warts
    Although there's no way to prevent warts, it's always a good idea to encourage kids to wash their hands and skin regularly and well. If your child has a cut or scratch, use soap and water to clean the area because open wounds are more susceptible to warts and other infections. It's also wise to have kids wear waterproof sandals or flip-flops in public showers, locker rooms, and around public pools (this can help protect against plantar warts and other infections, like athlete's foot)
    Homeopathic Cure for warts
    In homeopathic treatment of warts the person is considered as a whole being; all physical and emotional aspects are taken into account. The selected remedy strengthens the person’s immunity and removes the predisposition to viral infection. In addition, people find renewed energy, better sleep, disappearance of other symptoms, and many more pleasant surprises.

    Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is one of the many types of arthritis. "Ankylosing" means joining together or stiffening; "spondylitis" means inflammation of the vertebral bones of the spine. Inflammation of the bones in AS can lead to degeneration, pain, and loss of joint motion. AS typically affects the spine but can been seen in other areas, especially the hips. Ankylosing spondylitis can range from a mild to more severe disease in patients. Ankylosing spondylitis is approximately three times more common in males than females. It is usually diagnosed in young adults, with a peak onset between 20 and 30 years of age. Children may also be affected by a form of AS termed “juvenile ankylosing spondylitis”, seen in children younger than 16 years of age. There is evidence suggesting a strong genetic component in the development of the disease.
    AS is a type of arthritis of the spine. It causes swelling between vertebrae, which are the disks that make up your spine, and in the joints between spine and pelvis. Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune disease. This means immune system, which normally protects body from infection, attacks body's own tissues. The disease is more common and more severe in men. It often runs in families.

    Early symptoms include back pain and stiffness. These problems often start in late adolescence or early adulthood. Over time, ankylosing spondylitis can fuse vertebrae together, limiting movement.
    ETIOLOGY of Ankylosing Spondylitis
    Evidence points to autoimmune etiology.
    Positive family history.

    Patient cannot erect spine.
    Sits, walks with flexed spine.
    Chest expansion diminished.
    Complete rigidity of spine & involved joints.
    Kyphosis (curve in spine).
    COMPLICATIONS of Ankylosing Spondylitis

    X-Ray vertebral column
    Ossification of spinal, para-spinal ligaments.
    Squaring of vertebrae.
    Ossification of intervertebral discs.
    Bamboo spine (fusion of entire vertebral column).
    GENERAL MANAGEMENT for Ankylosing Spondylitis
    Before ankylosis takes place:
    Provide straight back chair for sitting.
    Firm bed with one pillow at night.
    Encourage swimming.
    Extension exercises.
    Encourage lying in prone position.
    Stop smoking.
    Homeopathic Remedies for Ankylosing Spondylitis
    Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The medicines given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition. The symptoms listed against each medicine may not be directly related to this disease because in homeopathy general symptoms and constitutional indications are also taken into account for selecting a remedy. None of these medicines should be taken without professional advice.

    It is difficult to distinguish between allergy symptoms allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. This is no small problem. Of all the chronic diseases from which we suffer, allergic rhinitis is the most common. Approximately 30 million Indian or 15% of the Indian, population suffer from allergic rhinitis. Sinusitis, on the other hand, is one of the most common complications of allergic rhinitis. The problem with differentiating these two conditions occurs, because allergic rhinitis and sinusitis may both present with the same symptoms, such as fatigue, runny nose, chronic cough, congestion, post nasal drainage, headaches, facial or teeth pain, loss of taste or smell, and difficulty sleeping. Asthma, the other major complication of allergic rhinitis, is a lower airway lung disease that may present with cough, shortness of breath, and chest tightness, and in some studies, up to 40% of patients with allergies, have asthma.

    Think then of a triangle: with allergic rhinitis on the left, causing sinusitis on the right, and both conditions causing asthma on the bottom. All three conditions can occur separately, but are closely interconnected. Remember that sinuses are simply empty cavities that surround the eyes. Air must be present in the sinuses to allow the linings of the sinuses to breathe and this is accomplished via small openings from the sinuses into the nasal passages. These openings also allow mucous from the sinuses to naturally drain into the nasal passages. If anything causes a blockage of the openings, the lack of air causes linings to use up the surrounding air supply, and like a vacuum, the resulting negative pressure will draw fluid out of the sinus linings. Fluid may then collect and fill the sinuses, which allows for bacteria to grow and cause infections. This can lead to facial pain, infected post nasal drainage and headaches. With increasing inflammation and thickening of the sinus linings, swollen tissue may round up and form nasal polyps that may cause and lead to loss of taste and smell.

    Allergic rhinitis and common viral colds are the leading causes of sinusitis, and the history and physical examination will help your provider distinguish the two conditions. Allergic rhinitis may be seasonal, lasting weeks, months or even year round, and is caused by pollen, dust mites. Fever and discolored nasal drainage are uncommon, unless sinusitis is also present. Conversely, typical viral colds last 3-7 days, so any fever, discolored drainage, sore throat, headache or fatigue lasting longer that 7 days is very unlikely to be a simple viral cold, and is most probably sinusitis. On physical examination, patients with allergic rhinitis and sinusitis may both have dark circles under the eyes (shiners), swollen, pale nasal tissue, congestion and discharge. Patients with sinusitis, however, may also have discolored discharge. Studies have shown that greater than 50-75% of allergic adults and children with asthma have abnormal sinus, and asthmatic symptoms did not improve until the sinusitis is treated completely.
    Most patients 10-20% of the population with sneezing, congestion, runny and itchy nose rhinitis, postnasal drip and itchy, red eyes during spring and fall have allergies to seasonal pollens. A high percentage of allergic individuals will be children. Whether someone will develop

    Allergies depends on two factors: (1) Hereditary - Is there a family history of allergy?
    (2) Environmental- Is the individual old enough and been exposed to enough pollen? Symptoms due to allergies may be severe enough to cause a loss of time from work and school.

    Interestingly, a percentage of patients with classic symptoms will be absolutely and unequivocally negative on skin testing. Allergy injections are not indicated and not possible, because these patients are not allergic. And yet patients are just as symptomatic, and just as miserable as the rest of us. How is this possible and what treatment is available?
    Definition and Pathophysiology
    The diagnosis of rhinitis without positive skin tests is divided into two subgroups. One subgroup, non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia, presents with allergy symptoms in addition to conditions such as nasal polyps and nasal eosinophilia, asthma and frequently sinusitis. The other subgroup, vasomotor rhinitis, presents with symptoms, especially congestion, but lacks other associated conditions.

    The nasal mucosal lining has a rich blood supply that is under the control of the nervous system called the autonomic nervous system. Nonspecific stimuli such as rapid changes in weather, temperature and humidity, drafts, exposure to chemicals, odors, perfumes, smoke and dust, emotions or stress may increase blood flow to tissue, resulting in swelling, congestion and rhinitis. A significantly deviated septum may induce changes in the mucosa, worsen the non-allergic or vasomotor rhinitis and cause more nasal congestion and drainage. Hormonal changes that occur with pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, hypothyroidism and oral contraceptives may cause symptoms of chronic non-allergic rhinitis.
    Clinical Features
    Patients complain of chronic nasal congestion, rhinitis, postnasal drip and sneezing. Congestion and blockage may alternate from side to side and are usually constant, though seasonal weather changes may trigger symptoms that mimic dust allergies. Symptoms may be worse upon awakening in the morning. Examination reveals marked pink or pale nasal swelling obstruction and thick nasal secretions. In all cases, skin tests are negative. Patients with non-allergic but not vasomotor rhinitis will have eosinophils present in nasal secretions and frequently nasal polyps complicating the obstruction.
    Sinusitis is an infection or inflammation of sinuses. Sinuses are the air-filled pockets or spaces found in the bones of face, around eyes and nose. They produce mucus, which, under normal circumstances, drains into the nose. Normally the sinuses produce about 1.5 litres of mucus a day and the quantity increases during allergy, inflammation and infection and this also changes the character of the mucus. Infection of sinuses is one of the common health care complaints.

    Sinusitis occurs when the mucus-producing lining of sinuses become inflamed and block the opening of the sinuses. Due to this, foreign material cannot get out, oxygen levels drop within the sinus and bacteria in the nasal cavity slither into the sinuses causing the sinus walls to swell and fill with pus. If the infection does not subside, the body sends in disease-fighting cells to kill the bacteria, which in turn can do considerable damage to the sinus walls. These defender cells can damage the cilia, the hair-like structure in the sinuses that help expel foreign matter. In addition, scarring can be caused which can result in the formation of sores.

    Causes of Sinusitis

    Infection due to bacteria, virus, fungi
    Allergy: Most commonest causes are dust, animal dander, smoke, food and pollutants
    Upper respiratory tract infection such as common cold or flu
    Nasal polyps
    Nasal Septum deviation
    Chronic tonsillitis and adenoiditis
    Climatic factors like sudden temperature changes
    Swimming in infected water
    Low immunity
    Dental causes like an abscessed or badly decayed tooth, following dental treatment
    Diseases like diabetes and HIV can create a predisposition to sinusitis

    Symptoms of sinusitis

    Nasal congestion leading to nasal obstruction, difficulty breathing through the nose
    Thick nasal discharge (may be yellowish or greenish in colour in case of infection)
    Sensation of fullness in the face
    Sensation of pressure behind the eyes
    Postnasal drip
    Cheeks feel tender and pain may be similar to toothache in upper jaw
    Mild fever and headache over one or both eyes (if frontal sinuses are affected)
    Headache is usually worse in the mornings and made sharper by bending forwards
    Sore throat
    Foul smell in nose
    Nasal sounding speech
    Possibly, pus-like nasal discharge
    Dry tickling cough

    Asthmatic Attack
    In the initial stage there is an asthmatic aura sometimes sneezing, flatulence, Drowsiness or restlessness irritability will be present. There can be a dry cough along with wheezing breathlessness these are some of the symptoms before the actual asthmatic attack.

    Sense of oppression in the chest suddenly in the middle of the night is experienced.
    There is a sense of suffocation and the patient leans forward fighting for his breath; or he may go to the open window to relieve the suffocation.
    Anxiety, perspiration, cold extremities and cyanosis might be present.
    Wheezing is present and can be heard from a distant.
    In severe airways obstruction airflow maybe so reduced that the chest is almost silent on auscultation.
    Inspiration is short and high pitched while the expiration is prolonged. On auscultation there are plenty of rhonchi and rales heard.
    Termination is spontaneous or due to medication. As the bronchial spasm is less the patient is able to breathe and he can also cough which brings out viscid sputum which relieves him.
    The duration of the attack varies from a few minutes to hours. The attacks can last for many hours in paroxysms this state is known as Status asthmaticus. In this state the patient has to be admitted to the hospital so that he can be supplied with oxygen and other auxiliary methods of treatment

    For many patients with asthma, the concern that this “reversible” though serious, potentially life-threatening persistent lung disease may progress into emphysema, is real and worrisome. After all, asthma along with emphysema and chronic bronchitis, the latter two conditions known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD), all have inflammation with airway narrowing, mucus production and airway obstruction. Homeopathy Management

    Suppression of colds by high doses of conventional medicine leads to recurrent attacks. When you use a groom to clean your room, do you push all the dust in a corner of the room or collect it and throw away? It is a common sense that if you push to the corner of the room, in due course the dust will spread in the entire room again and make it dirtier. Same is the case with the disease affecting your body. If you suppress the disease, where will it go? It will remain in dormant state inside the body and express itself again when the body meets any of the allergic triggers. The homeopathic medicines however through the principle of “like cures like” stimulate the vital force and immunity in order to enhance the body’s capacity to repel further allergies and infections. The constitutional medicines that are found by considering the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of an individual can only lead him on the road of permanent recovery from those allergic spells. Not only these medicines cater the problem of allergy but also impart great health on all planes, as it treats the patient as a whole and not just his disease.

    Arthritis is a general term for numerous conditions that affect bone joints; disease is genetic-something that is inherited from your parents. Can also caused by infection, obesity, bone damage, or another disease. Regardless of the cause or type of arthritis, people with arthritis experience chronic pain and swelling in their joints.
    Did you know there is more than one type of arthritis? it's a condition that affects more than 50% of adult population either of the type of arthritis a number that's expected to increase to more in adults by the year 2030. The false statement that all arthritis is same has led people to try treatments that have little effect on their arthritis symptoms. Since each type of arthritis is different, each type calls for a different approach to treatment. That means an accurate diagnosis is crucial for anyone who has arthritis. With the proper diagnosis, you'll know what causes the pain. Then, you can be sure you're taking the proper steps to relieve the pain and continue to be active.
    What are the common types of arthritis?
    There are two major types of arthritis osteoarthritis, which is the" wear and tear" arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory type of arthritis that happens when the body's immune system does not work properly. Gout, which is caused by crystals that collect in the joints, is another common type of arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis, lupus, and septic arthritis are other types of the condition.
    What is osteoarthritis?
    Osteoarthritis is also called degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis. It is the most common chronic joint condition in adult female and male. Osteoarthritis results from overuse of joints. It can be the consequence of demanding sports, obesity, or aging. If you were an athlete or dancer in high school or college, you may be wondering why your knee or hip aches when you climb out of bed in the morning. Ask your doctor about osteoarthritis. It can strike earlier in life with athletes or those who suffered an injury in young adulthood. Osteoarthritis in the hands is frequently inherited and often happens in middle-aged women.

    Osteoarthritis is most common in joints that bear weight such as the knees, hips, feet, and spine. It often comes on gradually over months or even years. Except for the pain in the affected joint, you usually do not feel sick, and there is no unusual fatigue or tiredness as there is with some other types of arthritis. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage gradually breaks down. Cartilage is a slippery material that covers the ends of bones and serves as the body's shock absorber. As more damage occurs, the cartilage starts to wear away, or it doesn't work as well as it once did to cushion the joint. As an example, the extra stress on knees from being overweight can cause damage to knee cartilage. That, in turn, causes the cartilage to wear out faster than normal.

    As the cartilage becomes worn, cushioning effect of the joint is lost. The result is pain when the joint is moved. Along with the pain, sometimes you may hear a grating sound when the roughened cartilage on the surface of the bones rubs together. Painful spurs or bumps may appear on the end of the bones, especially on the fingers and feet. While not a major symptom of osteoarthritis, inflammation may occur in the joint lining as a response to the breakdown of cartilage.
    1symptoms of osteoarthritis,
    Depending on which joint or joints are affected, may include:
    Deep, aching pain
    Difficulty dressing or combing hair
    Difficulty gripping objects
    Difficulty sitting or bending over
    Joint being warm to the touch
    Morning stiffness for less than an hour
    Pain when walking
    Stiffness after resting
    Swelling of joint
    Reduced movements
    2. Gout
    Gout is a another type of arthritis that is characterized by sudden, severe attacks of joint pain with redness, warmth, and swelling in the affected area. It usually attacks only one joint at a time. It most often strikes the joint of the big toe, where it's also known as podagra, but other toes can also be involved. Gout is typically a condition that occurs in middle age, is ten times more common in men than in women, is unusual in people under the age of 30, and is rarely seen in women before menopause
    Causes of gout
    The pain and swelling of a gout attack are caused by uric acid crystals building up in the joint and leading to inflammation. The body normally forms uric acid when breaking down cells and proteins, releasing it into the bloodstream. The uric acid usually stays dissolved in the blood and ends up being flushed out by the kidneys. If there's too much uric acid in the blood, called hyperuricemia, or if the kidneys can't get rid of it quickly enough, it may begin to form crystals that collect in the joints and even the kidneys, skin, and other soft tissues.
    3. What is rheumatoid arthritis?
    Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. That means that the immune system attacks parts of the body. For reasons that aren't clear, the joints are the main areas affected by this malfunction in the immune system. Over time, chronic inflammation can lead to severe joint damage and deformities. About three out of every five people who have rheumatoid arthritis develop lumps on their skin called rheumatoid nodules. These often develop over joint areas that receive pressure, such as over elbows, or heels.
    Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis?
    Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis can come on gradually or start suddenly. Unlike osteoarthritis, symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are often more severe, causing pain, fatigue, loss of appetite, stiffness. With rheumatoid arthritis, you may feel pain and stiffness and experience swelling in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, ankles, feet, jaw, and neck.
    4. Psoriatic arthritis
    Do you have psoriasis? if so, it's important to pay attention to your joints. Some people who have psoriasis get a type of arthritis called psoriatic arthritis. This arthritis often begins with a few swollen joints. A single finger or toe may be get affected first. Some people feel stiff when they wake up. As they move around, the stiffness fades. Most people get psoriatic arthritis about 5 to 12 years after psoriasis. This arthritis can show up earlier. Some people get psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis at the same time. A few get psoriatic arthritis first and psoriasis later. If you have psoriasis, there is no way to tell whether you will get psoriatic arthritis. This is why it is important to pay attention to swollen joints. An early diagnosis and treatment will help. These can reduce the effect that arthritis has on your life.

    Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation of the skin (psoriasis) and joints (arthritis). With psoriasis, there are patchy, raised, red, and white areas of skin inflammation with scaling. Psoriasis usually affects the tips of the elbows and knees, the scalp, the navel. Majority of people with psoriasis also develop an associated inflammation of their joints called psoriatic arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis can cause a sausage-like swelling of fingers and toes and is often associated with fingernails that are pitted or discolored. In some people with psoriatic arthritis, only one joint or a few joints are affected. For example, a person may be affected in only one knee. Sometimes the spine is affected, or just the fingers and toes.

    Psoriatic arthritis usually strikes around the age of 30 to 50, affecting both men and women equally. But it can also start in childhood. The skin disease (psoriasis) and the joint disease (arthritis) often appear separately. In fact, the skin disease precedes the arthritis in nearly 80% of patients.

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common behavioral disorder that affects an estimated 8% to 10% of school-age children. Boys are about three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it. Kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing. Of course, all kids (especially younger ones) act this way at times, particularly when they're anxious or excited. But the difference with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD is that symptoms are present over a longer period of time. They impair a child's ability to function socially, academically, and at home. Three primary characteristics of Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD The three primary characteristics of Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The signs and symptoms a child with attention deficit disorder has depends on which characteristics predominate.

    Children with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD may be:
    Inattentive, but not hyperactive or impulsive.
    Hyperactive and impulsive, but able to pay attention.
    Inattentive, hyperactive, and impulsive (the most common form of
    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD . Children who only have inattentive symptoms of Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD are often overlooked, since they’re not disruptive. However, the symptoms of inattention have consequences: getting in hot water with parents and teachers for not following directions; underperforming in school; or clashing with other kids over not playing by the rules.
    Inattentive signs and symptoms of ADHD
    It is not the children with ADHD which can’t pay attention: when they’re doing things they enjoy or hearing about topics in which they’re interested, they have no trouble focusing and staying on task. But when the task is repetitive or boring, they quickly tune out. Staying on track is another common problem. Children with ADHD often bounce from task to task without completing any of them, or skip necessary steps in procedures. Organizing their school work and their time is harder for them than it is for most children. Kids with ADHD also have trouble concentrating if there are things going on around them; they usually need a calm, quiet environment in order to stay focused.

    Symptoms of inattention in children:
    Doesn’t pay attention to details
    Makes careless mistakes
    Has trouble staying focused; is easily distracted
    Appears not to listen when spoken to
    Has difficulty remembering things and following instructions
    Has trouble staying organized, planning ahead, and finishing projects
    Gets bored with a task before it’s completed
    Frequently loses or misplaces homework, books, toys, or other items
    Hyperactive signs and symptoms of ADHD
    The most obvious sign of ADHD is hyperactivity. While many children are naturally quite active, kids with hyperactive symptoms of attention deficit disorder are always moving. They may try to do several things at once, bouncing around from one activity to the next. Even when forced to sit still which can be very difficult for them their foot is tapping, their leg is shaking, or their fingers are drumming. Symptoms of hyperactivity in children:
    Constantly fidgets and squirms
    Often leaves his or her seat in situations where sitting quietly is expected
    Moves around constantly, often runs or climbs inappropriately
    Talks excessively
    Has difficulty playing quietly or relaxing
    Is always “on the go,” as if driven by a motor
    May have a quick temper or a “short fuse”
    Impulsive signs and symptoms of ADHD
    The impulsivity of children with ADHD can cause problems with self-control. Because they censor themselves less than other kids do, they’ll interrupt conversations, invade other people’s space, ask irrelevant questions in class, make tactless observations, and ask overly personal questions. Instructions like “Be patient” and “Just wait a little while” are twice as hard for children with ADHD to follow as they are for other youngsters. Children with impulsive signs and symptoms of ADHD also tend to be moody and to overreact emotionally. As a result, others may start to view the child as disrespectful, weird, or needy. Symptoms of impulsivity in children:
    Acts without thinking
    Blurts out answers in class without waiting to be called on or hear the whole question
    Can’t wait for his or her turn in line or in games
    Says the wrong thing at the wrong time
    Often interrupts others
    Intrudes on other people’s conversations or games
    Inability to keep powerful emotions in check, resulting in angry outbursts or temper tantrums
    Guesses, rather than taking time to solve a problem
    Medical causes of ADHD
    The specific causes of ADHD are not known. There are, however, a number of factors that may contribute to, or exacerbate ADHD. They include genetics, diet and the social and physical environments.

    Genetics Twin studies indicate that the disorder is highly heritable and that genetics are a factor in about 75 percent of all cases. Researchers believe that a large majority of ADHD cases arise from a combination of various genes, many of which affect dopamine transporters.

    Environmental Twin studies to date have suggested that approximately 9 to 20 percent of the variance in hyperactive-impulsive-inattentive behavior or ADHD symptoms can be attributed to nonshared environmental (nongenetic) factors. Environmental factors implicated include alcohol and tobacco smoke exposure during pregnancy and environmental exposure to lead in very early life.

    Complications during pregnancy and birth Complications during pregnancy and birth, including premature birth, might also play a role. ADHD patients have been observed to have higher than average rates of head injuries. Infections during pregnancy, at birth, and in early childhood are linked to an increased risk of developing ADHD. and streptococcal bacterial infection.

    Insecticides The organophosphate insecticide chlorpyrifos, which is used on some fruits and vegetables, with delays in learning rates, reduced physical coordination, and behavioral problems in children, especially ADHD..

    Social The World Health Organisation states that the diagnosis of ADHD can represent family dysfunction or inadequacies in the educational system rather than individual psychopathology. Other researchers believe that relationships with caregivers have a profound effect on attentional and self-regulatory abilities.

    Homeopathic treatment of ADHD is constitutional taking a more holistic look at the individual. Every disease is considered as a Mind-Body process where your personality traits are as important as your physical symptoms thus taking into account diet, lifestyle, personality, surroundings and emotional factors. Natural remedies are used to successfully treat the symptoms, helping the person to heal and to reach a state of balance and health. The natural approach is also safe with no side effects. This is very important, especially in the case of children, because of the frequent side effects of prescription drugs and the risk of addiction. Homeopathy offers a wider range of options that conventional medicine. Some of commonly used homoeopathic medicines are Baryta carb, baryta iodatum, calc phos, strammonium, nux vomica, cannabis indicus, carcinosin etc should be taken under strict medical supervision.

    Sexual dysfunction refers to a problem during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity. The sexual response cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution.

    Causes of sexual dysfunction
    Physical causes Many physical and/or medical conditions can cause problems with sexual function. These conditions include diabetes, heart and vascular disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases such as kidney or liver failure, and alcoholism and drug abuse. In addition, the side effects of certain medications, including some antidepressants drugs, can affect sexual desire and function. Psychological causes These include work-related stress and anxiety, concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, and the effects of a past sexual trauma.

    The most common problems related to sexual dysfunction in men include ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction and inhibited sexual desire.

    Ejaculation disorders
    There are different types of ejaculation disorders, including:

    Premature ejaculation
    This refers to ejaculation that occurs before or soon after penetration.

    Inhibited or retarded ejaculation
    This is when ejaculation does not occur.

    Retrograde ejaculation
    This occurs when, at orgasm, the ejaculate is forced back into the bladder rather than through the urethra and out the end of the penis. In some cases, premature and inhibited ejaculation are caused by psychological factors, including a strict religious background that causes the person to view sex as sinful, a lack of attraction for a partner and past traumatic events . Premature ejaculation, the most common form of sexual dysfunction in men, often is due to performance anxiety during sex. However, organic causes are sometimes present. Certain drugs, including some anti-depressants, may impair ejaculation, as can nerve damage to the spinal cord or back. Retrograde ejaculation is most common in males with diabetes who suffer from diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). This is due to problems with the nerves in the bladder and the bladder neck that allow the ejaculate to flow backward. In other men, retrograde ejaculation occurs after operations on the bladder neck or prostate, or after certain abdominal operations. In addition, certain medications, particularly those used to treat mood disorders, may cause problems with ejaculation.

    Erectile dysfunction
    Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to attain and/or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Causes of erectile dysfunction include diseases affecting blood flow, such as atherosclerosis nerve disorders; psychological factors such as stress, depression and performance anxiety; and injury to the penis. Chronic illness, certain medications and a condition called Peyronie’s disease (scar tissue in the penis) also can cause erectile dysfunction.

    Inhibited sexual desire (reduced libido)
    Inhibited desire, or loss of libido, refers to a decrease in desire for or interest in sexual activity. Reduced libido can result from physical or psychological factors. It has been associated with low levels of the hormone testosterone. It also may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some anti-depressants; and relationship difficulties.
    Tests help evaluate sexual dysfunction include:
    Blood tests These tests are done to evaluate hormone levels. Vascular assessment This involves an evaluation of the blood flow to the penis. A blockage in a blood vessel supplying blood to the penis may be contributing to erectile dysfunction. Sensory testing Particularly useful in evaluating the effects of diabetic neuropathy, sensory testing measures the strength of nerve impulses in a particular area of the body.

    How is male sexual dysfunction treated?
    Many cases of sexual dysfunction can be corrected by treating the underlying physical or psychological problems. Treatment strategies may include the following:
    Homeopathic management
    Impotence is the inability to maintain an erection long enough to engage in normal sexual intercourse. Many factors can contribute, including emotional issues, dietary factors, use of alcohol or drugs, and level of physical fitness. Homeopathic remedies sometimes help with temporary difficulties. If the problem is constant or recurrent, a doctor should be consulted to check for physical, hormonal, or nervous system problems. A constitutional remedy and the guidance of an experienced practitioner may help bring balance to a person’s system, both emotionally and physically.

    Research has shown that cells which heal the skin following an injury play an important role in the development of the skin disease psoriasis. In people with psoriasis, the skin peels much faster than normal so that it flakes and becomes inflamed. The scientist investigated the transit amplifying cells in the uppermost layer of the skin. These cells develop from stem cells and specialize into skin cells when new skin cells are needed. The transit amplifying cells are involved in the healing of the skin following an injury and in the regular renewing of the skin.

    Normally these cells wait until they receive a signal to develop into skin cells. Scientists discovered that in people with psoriasis, some of the transit amplifying cells divide without waiting for a signal. As a result of this, too many skin cells develop and the skin is renewed more quickly than normal.

    Psoriasis is a skin problem that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks its own system. It is also called the auto immune disorder. The auto immune systems mistake your skin cells as. In the case of psoriasis, not only is there a more rapid renewal of the skin, but the number of cell layers on the surface also increases. The skin condition causes red marks that are rich in blood and often inflamed. These red marks are covered with shiny white flakes of skin and sometimes itch.

    Scalp psoriasis could be especially embarrassing because of its visibility. Not like psoriasis on other elements of your body, this sort of psoriasis is difficult to cover up. It might spread for the surrounding areas in the neck, forehead, and ears. Its not at all only uncomfortable and itchy, but it could be a supply of anxiety for psoriasis sufferers at the same time. Psoriasis appears as raised, red patches or lesions covered with dead skin cells on the skin. Scalp psoriasis can be mild, with fine scaling or thick with crusted plaques, covering the entire scalp. The areas of the skin grow very rapidly and form red, scaling patches. Patients experience severe itchiness, a feeling of tightness and soreness, accompanied by hair loss. Scalp psoriasis is a common form of psoriasis.

    These spots may be very small at first and are often confused with dandruff. However, unlike dandruff, these spots will have a silver tint. In the absence of treatment, this disease advances, spots and sores enlarge and can impede the growth of new hair or they may even become dormant until triggered again. In extreme cases can cause permanent loss or thinning in affected areas.
    Why do I have Psoriasis?
    While science hasn’t been able to pinpoint the exact cause as yet, a significant genetic predisposition has been seen (which means if any of your close relatives suffer from any autoimmune disease, not particularly Psoriasis), it might have been passed on to you via the genes. It is an autoimmune disease where the defense cells of the body start attacking their own skin cells by mistake. The skin cells when attacked, respond to it by starting to multiply abnormally leading to thickened skin and shedding of scales. This causes raw, red, peeling areas on the skin.

    Homeopathy has been known to help. A study published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, a conventional medical Journal, showed that psoriasis patients experienced significant improvement in their quality of life and reduction in their psoriasis symptoms with Homeopathy. And this was without any kind of side-effects whatsoever. Of the 82 patients involved in the study that went on for 2 years, many had suffered psoriasis for as long as 15 years and had previously unsuccessfully tried conventional treatments.

    How can Homeopathy help me with my Psoriasis?”
    In Psoriasis, our immunity needs to be strengthened from within and should be able to identify all our body cells as its own. Homeopathy assesses the individual as a whole and does not only treat symptoms. The environment, the person’s temperament and the presenting symptoms are all considered before prescribing the ‘remedy’ to the patient. Thus, no two people with psoriasis might have the exact same remedy. Homeopathy works on the principle ‘Like treats like’. Very small, infinitesimal dose of the substance which causes symptoms similar to the disease is diluted and packed into the sugar pills. With these doses, the body’s immunity recognizes its skin cells as it own, thus reducing the severity of the condition.

    What Is Psoriatic Arthritis?
    Psoriatic arthritis is a type of chronic inflammatory arthritis associated with the chronic skin condition psoriasis, which is believed to be an inherited condition. Psoriasis, which affects about 2 percent of the population, most often causes patches of thick, reddened, irritated skin with flaky, silver-white patches called scales. Psoriatic arthritis typically appears about 10 years after the onset of psoriasis, which can manifest at any age, though most people are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 35. The main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis are painful, swollen joints, tenderness where muscles or ligaments attach to bones, particularly the heel and bottom of the foot, back pain, nail changes such as separating from the nail bed, or becoming pitted or infected-looking, morning stiffness, general fatigue, reduced range of motion
    What are the effects?
    Psoriatic arthritis is an autoimmune disease that for unknown reasons causes the body’s own immune system to turn against itself. Inflammation can occur causing the synovium tissue that lines the joint capsule and produces synovial fluid, which lubricates the joint and keeps it moving smoothly—to thicken resulting in a swollen joint. Over time, the synovium invades the cartilage, elastic tissue that covers the ends of the bones in a joint. The cartilage in turn erodes, causing bones to rub together. As the joint weakens, so do its the surrounding structures, such as muscles, ligaments and tendons. Because this joint damage can occur early in the disease process, diagnosing psoriatic arthritis as quickly as possible and treating it properly are important.

    Here are many foods and beverages that get mentioned often by people as possibly causing their psoriasis aggravation. Some of the major food triggers as

    “First and foremost, stop drinking,” Alcohol opens the blood vessels in the skin. When your blood vessels are dilated, white blood cells, including the T cells that are believed to be responsible for psoriasis, can sneak into the outer layers of your skin more easily and you don’t need to be inviting more T cells. “Your psoriasis symptoms may worsen even if you’re a light-to-moderate alcohol user,”

    Junk foods
    Psoriasis is an inflammatory condition. Junk foods tend to be high in saturated and trans fats and refined starches and sugars, all of which can promote inflammation. Another reason to avoid junk foods is that that they are high in calories with little nutritional value, and people with psoriasis often have weight problems. “If you have psoriasis, you have an increased risk of heart and vascular diseases,”

    Red meat
    Red meats contain a polyunsaturated fat called arachidonic acid. “This type of fat can worsen psoriasis symptoms because it can easily be converted into inflammatory compounds,”

    Dairy products
    Like red meat, dairy products contain the natural inflammatory arachidonic acid. “Cow’s milk is one of the biggest culprits because it also contains the protein casein, which has been linked to inflammation. Egg yolks, too, are high in arachidonic acid, so consider nixing them from your diet. Dietary changes: Follow an anti-inflammatory diet, making sure to get plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly those rich in carotenoids (mangoes, corn, sweet potatoes, carrots and squash, as well as leafy greens and tomatoes).

    Exercise: Regular physical activity may help.

    Vitiligo is a continual and long term skin problem that produces white depigmentation patches that develop and enlarge only in certain sections of the skin. These white patches appear because the patient has very little or no skin cells - called melanocytes - which are the cells in charge of producing the skin pigmentation, called melanin, which gives the color of the skin and protects it from the sun´s UV rays.

    It is impossible to predict how much of the skin can be affected. In the majority of cases, the affected areas remain affected for the rest of the person's life.

    "The appearance on otherwise normal skin of nonpigmented white patches of varied sizes often symmetrically distributed and usually bordered by hyper pigmented areas; hair in the affected areas is usually white. Epidermal melanocytes are completely lost in depigmented areas by an autoimmune process."

    Causes of Vitiligo
    Surprisingly, the causes of vitiligo are yet to be precisely established, but most of the research so far points to the following: Autoimmune disorder - the patient's immune system becomes overactive, and destroys the melanocytes
    Genetic oxidative stress imbalance
    A stressful event
    Harm to the skin due to a critical sunburn or cut
    Exposure to certain chemicals
    Vitiligo is not transmittable; people cannot catch it from each other.
    Depigmentation of sections of skin and hair in 48-year-old man Less than 1% of the population is affected by the appearance of Vitiligo in their skin, meaning, it is not too common. It has no age, sex or ethnic discrimination, but studies have concluded that a larger percentage of the cases has been detected starting the age of 20.

    Vitiligo signs and symptoms varies considerably from person-to-person. It is by far more perceptible in people with dark or tanned skinned. Some people may only acquire a handful of white dots which develops no further, while others develop larger white patches that join together affecting larger areas of the skin.

    Types of Vitiligo
    vitiligo in basically of two types which are called:
    Non segmental
    Segmental vitiligo.

    No Segmental Vitiligo
    It is the most common type of vitiligo and occurs in up to 90% of the people who have this disorder.
    In non-segmental vitiligo, the patches often become visible equally on both sides of the body, with some kind of symmetry. These unusual symmetrical patches most commonly appear on skin that is exposed daily to the sun, such as the face, neck, and hands, but it also appears on these other areas:
    backs of the hands
    Non-segmental vitiligo has sub-categories:
    Generalized Vitiligo:
    The most familiar pattern, it has no specific area or size when the white patches start occurring

    Acrofacial Vitiligo:
    This type of vitiligo is considered only when the appearance is mostly on the fingers or toes

    Mucosal Vitiligo:
    The appearance of the depigmentation generally around the mucous membranes and lips

    niversal Vitiligo:
    It is very rare since depigmentation has to cover most of the body

    Focal Vitiligo:
    one or a few scattered white patches in a small certain areas. It is often noticeable in young children Segmental Vitiligo Segmental Vitiligo has a different form of appearance. This condition spreads more rapidly, but is considered more constant and stable than non segmental. It is definitively much less common, and it affects only about 10% of people with this condition. But unpredictably, segmental vitiligo is more noticeable in the early ages affecting about 30% of the children that have been diagnosed with vitiligo.

    It is non-symmetrical and usually tends to affect dorsal roots of the spine. It is more stable, less erratic, and responds well to topical treatments. What Are The Signs and Symptoms of Vitiligo?

    A symptom is felt by the patient, such as a headache dizziness or pain, and described to other people, including doctors and nurses. A sign can be spotted by everybody, including the patient, such as lighter patches of skin, a rash, or loss of hair.

    The only sign of Vitiligo is the appearance of flat white spots or patches on the skin. Most of the times, the first white spot that becomes noticeable is usually on an area of the body that is exposed continuously to the sun.

    At first, the vitiligo starts as a simple spot, a little paler than the rest of the skin. But gradually, as time passes, this spot will become much paler until reaching the white color.

    The shape of these patches are completely irregular, and at times the edges can become a little inflamed with a slight red tone, and may sometimes result in itchiness. Other than the negative appearance and some itchiness of Vitiligo, it does not cause any discomfort, irritation, soreness or dryness in the skin.

    Vitiligo is photosensitive; the patient should avoid prolonged skin exposure to direct sunlight.

    To predict whether Vitiligo will spread, and by how much is particularly difficult. The spreading of the white patches to some might occur considerably in a matter of weeks, and to others it can rest without growing for months or even years.

    If the first symptoms of the white patches are symetrical (non segmental vitiligo,) in other words, in the same areas of both parts of the body, the development is much slower than if the patches are in only one area of the body (segmental vitiligo). What are the treatment options for vitiligo?

    There are a number of remedies that can be performed in order to decrease the visibility of Vitiligo on the affected areas of the skin.
    Homeopathic Management:
    As a rule, homoeopathy never looks at Vitiligo as a local disease. Vitiligo has been considered as a local expression of a system disturbance. As per the classical homoeopathy, we believe in constitutional prescribing. This calls for individual case study in every case of Vitiligo. There is no single specific remedy for all the cases of Vitiligo. The exact treatment is determined only on in-depth evaluation of individual case.

    Constitutional approach:
    What we understand by the Constitutional Approach in homeopathy is nothing but analysis and evaluation of various factors affecting the human constitution to determine the disease diagnosis and the exact treatment in turn. Every case of Vitiligo calls for study of the patient’s constitution which includes various aspects of his physical aspects as well as the in-depth study of the mental sphere, such as emotions, psychosocial background, behavior and personality pattern, etc. The homeopathic remedy selected in every case after such a detail study is called the constitutional medicine, which when administered in the correct dose brings about harmony at the constitutional level, stimulating the normal pigmentation and hence induces normal skin coloration. It will be of interest to note that the homeopathy medicines are essentially oral and not in the form of creams, lotions or any local application on the skin.
    Diet & Regimen:
    There are a few instructions for patients regarding their diet in vitiligo especially with mention of what they should avoid during the treatment of vitiligo. Following are some of our observations based on our clinical experience of treating a large number of patients (clinical observations):

    Foods that are excessively sour should be avoided. The ascorbic acid in sour foods tends to reduce melanin pigmentation. So the patients should restrict their intake of citrus foods. Non vegetarian foods are also to be avoided as they act as a foreign body to pigment cells. Flavoured drinks are to be avoided. Artificial colours used in various food preparations should also be avoided.

    Usually small amounts of milk, for example in tea or coffee, do not cause any problems. Dairy products such as butter, cheese and yoghurt are also well tolerated. If milk is excluded, it should be replaced with low lactose milk or with Soya milk. This should be discussed with a dietician to ensure that the nutritional balance is maintained.
