Today I would like to talk about a very common disorder seen in female these days that is called Polycystic Ovarian diseases it is characterized by presence of follicles of the weight ovaries of the female, which leads to menstrual irregularities, which lead to weight gain, unwanted hair growth which is called Hirsutism. And even difficulty in conceiving. In the last 20 25 years this PCOD has become very common and it’s not like that was not earlier but definitely the insolence and prevalence has increased over the years. The reason being the sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity and defiantly additives, addition of sugar and sugar additives. A cystic ovary also develops when there is a hormonal imbalance is a female. The hormonal imbalance again could be due to sedentary lifestyle or could be when, there are certain females in which the male hormone increases, that is called androgen and the female hormones reduce that is the estrogen so this imbalance also leads to cystic formation of follicles which prevents proper conception and proper menstrual flow, how to avoid it. The first thing that patient in females in need to do is get into physical activities to get into losing their weight, avoid chocolates and sweets and sweeteners in any form of and get their insulin also detected because there is an insulin resistance that develops in PCOD. People, females complain of start acne around the chin or hair, unwanted hair on the chin or facial hair even the chest and back so all these symptoms are, you know guiding toward PCOD. We usually diagnose it with the help of an ultrasound and complete hormonal assay where we test for the estrogen, progesterone, LH, follicle stimulating of hormone and prolactin and the testosterone. Any imbalance is there, doctors, I mean patients should consult the doctors. Homeopathy as a very good role to play in PCOD, it’s a disease again that is constitutional treatment is required. Without any side effects, homeopathy is able to cure the patient completely. Management part comes when there is, you patient, as I said earlier, secondary lifestyle and additives of, addition of sugar. You know, over the years increase the prevalence of PCOD also there are certain drugs like even, oral contraceptive pills can lead to formation for cyst even though there is they’re prescribed in modern medicine as a treatment also but when you, when you take certain pills for a longer period of time, they’re also, you know, they cause formation of these cysts, and do not help in conception. And coming to the homeopathic part, homeopathy is a science where, you know, that is individual science as a I said there are certain causes, lot of causes of PCOD and when we are certain in a female, depending from female to female, the treatment also varies. There are medicines like Pulsatilla, PCR, Neterameorh, Apis Mellifica, Thuja, all are very good medicines for PCOD and PCOD is completely curable with homeopathy. But as I said, please do not take them on their own.

I am Dr. Sanket Gupta. I am a practicing homeopathic consultant at AKG’s Oviham’s medical centers and we have our clinics at Moti Bagh and Pritam Pura.
Today I would like to talk about a disease caller hyperthyroidism. Again a very common disease. A very common endocrine disorder. One of the most common endocrine disorders. And as the name suggests, hypo means less, so what happens is the thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones in a very less quantity. So the thyroid hormones t3 and t4 are released very less and there are only two major reasons. The first major reason being thyroid gland not functioning properly which happens when there is usually lack of iodine or deficiency of iodine as you must have seen a lot of people develop quite a huge growth around their necks. That is goiters and that is due to deficiency of iodine. The second cause being pituitary gland which releases less of thyroid stimulation hormone which in turn actually activates and stimulates the thyroid gland to release the thyroid hormones so these are the two major causes and clinically what we find in the investigate the findings of the thyroid profile, we find thyroid stimulating hormone is usually in, in people with hyperthyroidism and the t3 and t4 levels are generally low. On the other hand major reason could be autoimmune thyroiditis and this autoimmune thyroiditis means when the cells of your own body are working against your own body cells are working again your own receptors, own glands and preventing it from stimulating the thyroid hormones normally. In this case we need to get anti TPO and thyroid antibody, thyroid binding antibody globulins to test it. Homeopathy fortunately has a very very good result and very good effective treatment in both the cases be it autoimmune disorder or be the classical hyperthyroidism which we see in generally most of the cases. Symptomatically patients start you, you know the disease dose sets in quite early but the symptoms start manifesting very late in the life and symptoms like weight gain symptoms like dry skin, fatigue, weakness. Breathlessness even at times, slow pulse rate, falling of hair, irregular periods, constipation, depression, that all guiding towards hyperthyroidism so one thing is by if there is iodine deficiency It can always be supplemented by taking iodized salt which we use these days and that prevents the formation of goiter. The second thing being a secondary hyperthyroidism where it is generally due to the lack of our homeless, due to the inefficiency of the thyroid gland. What home, here the role of homeopathy is very important. What homeopathy does is it tries to only stimulate the thyroid gland to release the thyroid hormones properly tries to maintain that homeostasis tries to maintain that balance. It is not done we are doing giving something from outside which will you know, release the chemical and work on its own when the thyroid gland would be sitting pretty on its side, No. what we do with homeopathy, homeopathy medicines do they stimulates the thyroid gland to function on its own to fight on its own and this is how thyroid is completely, all the higher disorders are completely and completely curable with homeopathy. There is no need to be on lifelong medication for hypothyroidism or even hyperthyroidism per se. even at times when people are given anti thyroid drugs for hyperthyroidism. They get converted into hypothyroidism due to the medication, over medication. So there are lots of factors which we tend to see over our clinics all of them are taken into account and accordingly treatment is given. But definitely, homeopathy has a huge role to play in public health when it comes to hypothyroidism and is a beautiful medicine of treatment, treatment of medicine without any side effects and absolutely curable for thyroid disorders.
For any queries related to hypothyroidism or any other disorder can consult me here on Lybrate or consult me at my clinics Thank you.read more
I am Dr. Sanket Gupta.I am practicing homeopathic consultant at AKG’s OVIHAM’s centers. We have two clinics at Moti Bagh and Pitampura.
Today I would like to talk about the number 1 diseases in India right now which is sort of an epidemic actually, and it’s called Diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes Mellitus is a diseases where, it is of two types actually. Type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is a diseases, it’s called an autoimmune type of Diabetes Mellitus where the immune cells are working on your own cells and they hamper the beta cells of the pancreas. Pancreas is the gland where insulin hormone is produced and insulin hormone is responsible for maintain you blood glucose level. So when these beta cells are destroyed by these antibodies it results in low of, lack of insulin causing the high in glucose. The other one is Type 2 Diabetes which is generally due to the faulty lifestyle and also may have genetic background. People with family histories fall into such category and also because there is so much of stress, so much of, I would say, sedentariness in our lives that we hardly walk, move and the synthetic food that we are taking these days is not good at all. The amount of sugar we are taking in the form of chocolates, drinks, even alcohol, when it comes to carbohydrates and fats they all lead to, you know, increase in blood sugar levels. And that falls in the category of type 2 Diabetes. This can be treated again by, type 2, by insulin or non-insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Which depend where the insulin level go so high that patient has to be given insulin. And type, non-insulin dependent can be curtailed with medicine. Homeopathy on one hand has a very very good treatment for Diabetes Mellitus and it entirely depends on the patient. Especially I am talking about type 2 Diabetes here. Where I would, I always tell patients 50% is yours and 50% is my effort. If you do not do your 50% you cannot be off medication. If you do your 50% and follow the instructions and everything, and take the medication properly then, there is definitely a chance that your Diabetes can be absolutely cured and you can be off medication, but that happens generally very rarely, why? Because a disease is such and the discipline is not really that much seen. But, yes, homeopathy definitely has very good treatment to offer when it comes to Diabetes Mellitus. It can prevent the complications of retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy, when it comes to affection of the nerves, retina and the kidneys. Homeopathy can help in preventing that. Help in curtailing that as well. Even diabetic foot is absolutely curable with homeopathy, non-healing wound, non-healing ulcers of Diabetes Mellitus are absolutely curable when it comes to homeopathy. Lot of people usually asks me that you have sweet pills, how do they cure Diabetes? See homeopathy is not only about sweet pills. Medication can be given in liquid form also to Diabetes patients and they also cure the patient. These sweet pills are usually made of lactose. Which is lactose of milk, which is very very, very very, minutely, minute in glucose contain or sucrose contain. So it is absolutely safe to use. Completely without any side effect. And definitely definitely recommended for every patient of Diabetes.
You can consult me here on Lybrate for any inquiries regarding Diabetes Mellitus or any other queries. Thank you.read more
Here are symptoms, stages and treatments Piles or Hemorrhoids
Hello, everyone, I’m Dr. Sanket Gupta. I’m a practicing homeopathic consultant for the past seven years at Staiyaniketan Motibagh. We at AKG’s Ovihams, that’s my clinic’s name, we have a specialization in all kinds of diseases especially lifestyle disorders, psychological diseases, neurological diseases, diabetes, blood pressure, kidney stones, gall stones, piles, everything and today I would like to talk about of another very very common disease and a very troublesome this order what which is called hemorrhoids or also called piles in common language.
Piles is such a common phenomenon that today every second person develops it. Usually what happens when it is a resultant of a sedentary lifestyle. A sedentary lifestyle is when you can remain sitting for long, you develop constipation, you develop faulty food habits and lifestyle and piles is the result of that. So anything which what happens exactly is there is a plexus of veins down there. So whenever there is a pressure while we are defecating or while one is passing stool, the veins would engorge and once the veins engorge they rupture and they that causes bleeding.
So the first stage is internal hemorrhoid. Internal hemorrhoid develops only due to straining. So people who remain sitting for long, they should not remain sitting for long. They should have a decent walking and physical exercise and drink plenty of water. Avoid constipation at any cost because constipation is one thing which you know which makes a person about an exert pressure on the anal area so that is the main cause and once that internal hemorrhoid develops and it’s not treated and it’s not taken care of not managed well then patient develops external hemorrhoids.
And then the second and third and fourth degree of hemorrhoid eventually prolapse. So depending upon again the stage of the disease and the nature of the phenomena, homeopathic treatment is decided. And because homeopathy is an individualistic science we tend to you know we tend to go into the details of the constitution of patient and along with that give medicines to manage the disease as well and patient is totally cured. Piles is a very very I see mean almost ten patients a day of piles every day so it is such a common phenomenon and it has wonderful results with homeopathy medicines like an NUX Vomica, Calcaria Carb, Thuja, Ratania, Esculus, acid nitric, Aloes, they have some magnificent results in curing piles.
People who have again and another another condition it is which is usually asked a patient is asked to go for surgery but with homeopathy surgery is absolutely avoidable. And not just avoidable, patient is absolutely curable, more so that the disease won’t reoccur. See the one thing I would really like people make you understand is that if you go in for surgery, it does not prevent your reoccurrence. In fact, the reoccurrence question increases why? Because the plexus down there weakens so it doesn’t support that.
So instead of going for surgery. please consult a good homeopathic doctor. You can consult me as well. For any queries regarding piles and hemorrhoids you can consult here on Lybrate or you can visit me at my clinic as well. Thank you.
Here are cause, symptoms and treatments of Kidney Stone
Hello, everyone, I’m Dr. Sanket Gupta I’m a practicing homeopathic consultant at Satyaniketan Motibagh.
I have been into homeopathic practice since last seven years. I specialize in all kinds of the chronic and acute disease for males females and children. I especially have interests in female disorders like PCOD and fibroids Uterus. I have a specialization in piles, kidney stones diabetes-like cell disorders, psychological disorders and even neurological conditions. Today I would like to talk about a condition called kidney stones which is a very common condition these days.
Every now and then we have a patient who is suffering from kidney stones. Why does it happen? See, usually, a kidney stone would have developed when people who have very less drinking water habit they do they would drink only one or one half liters of water a day. Your kidney is your filtration you know your filtration equipment but if you do not provide enough water it won’t filter well so once it does not fit her well the large molecules especially the calcium carbonate molecules they start accumulating and that’s when a stone forms. people have habits specially children have habits of you know controlling their urine and not going to the urine at the right time and when they feel the urge. so what happens is that creates a back pressure to your kidney and the pelvis and again the waste would get accumulated and resulting in form of a kidney stone.
Any patient who complains of a lower back pain here in this area flank area be at right side or the left side or with a pain you know referring to the right side of the abdominal the left side to side of the abdomen the left side of the bargain with a complaint of difficulty in passage of urine, painful urination there is always a doubt of kidney stone. Then and the first thing we ask a patient is to get an ultrasound or an X-ray done and depending upon the side of the calculus for the stone we decide the treatment and as in homeopathy you must be aware homeopathy is a science where very small sweet pills with a very gentle. You know gentle behavior and gentle assessment. what you know what would help curing the condition there are many many wonderful remedies for kidney stones medicines like Nux Vomica, Lycopodium, APIs malefic Beriberi’s Vulgaris, Colocynths, Cantharis and many more they have wonderful wonderful results in kidney stones.
I myself have my in my clinic I have you know I have the experience of getting a maximum of seventeen mm stones outside out of the body of a male patient of 45 year old male patient and that too in the seven days so that is how fast the homeopathy medicine can help curing kidney stones. It is a condition where usually it is advised that you need to get in surgery done but with homeopathy you can avoid that surgery and you know with the most gentle effect and without any harm the patient can be cured of his stones. Stones were passed generously through the urine and even the tendency few people have tendencies to develop stones every now and then that tendency can we check with homeopathy as well and even generations to come so I would definitely recommend everybody to opt for homeopathy for once in all for any kind of disease and especially for kidney stones.
If you have any query regarding kidney stones and I would really help you know I would be really glad to help you all and you can concern the on Lybrate.

eczemaAtopic Dermatitis is a specific type of eczema which occurs when the epidermal layer of the skin is affected by eczema causing bacteria and other microorganisms. These eczemas are treatable and homeopathy finds a simple and natural solution to this disease. It not only helps to contain the disease from spreading it to other parts of the body but also helps in curing it of the root itself. There are some quick and effective remedies towards atopic dermatitis through homeopathy. Some of these are explained below.
- Antimonium Crudum: People who have eczema which manifests as thick and hard boils are often given this medicine. In fact, it is administered both to children and the elder people. It has been seen that those who show symptoms of irritability in their behavior, get angry very soon and are most likely to be left alone, are the ones who are given this treatment to cure their eczema.
- Arsenicum: Sometimes eczema is formed where boils turn thick and hard and have pus oozing out of it. For such skin infections, Arsenicum is the most widely used medicine that the homeopathic practitioners rely on. People who face such kinds of skin diseases are often seen to be depressed or melancholic in their lives. Thus, their mental feelings are often manifested in the form of eczema on their body.
- Calcarea Carb: Eczema not only occurs on the body but also on the scalp. There are a few kinds of infections which have their roots on the scalp and then it starts spreading all over the face. For such kinds of infection, Calcarea Carb is the best form of homeopathic medicine which can be administered. In fact, patients with this problem are mostly children.
- Graphites: Seems to be a very powerful and effective medicine against eczema which resembles ars. It is given to those patients whose skin becomes very hard and rough and there seems to be pus formation within the infection. Eruptions may be occurring in the eyes, behind the ears, and on the cheeks. Such infections are treatable with graphites.
Thus, if you are showing signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis, then you should immediately consult your nearest homeopathic practitioner and get the proper medicine prescribed for yourself. Eczema would only spread and cause irritation in the skin if not timely treated and homeopathy offers one of the best types of treatments for this purpose. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Bad breath can be a real deal breaker in personal and professional lives, both. Yet, we normally want to even admit that we suffer from the complaint or do something about it. But, bad breath doesn’t go away by itself and homoeopathy has some of the best remedies available to fix it. Let’s take a look.
Bad breath is a medical condition and is called halitosis. In common speak, bad breath refers to foul odour of any kind that is exhaled out from your mouth. The causes of halitosis can be –
- Poor dental hygiene
- Chewing tobacco
- Eating garlic, radish, onion, spices
- Dry mouth
- Decayed teeth
- Mouth ulcers
- Gum infections like Gingivitis and Pyorrhoea
- Sinus infections
- Throat infections
- Post-nasal drip
Top Homeopathic Remedies For Bad Breath!
Bad breath is usually managed by using mouthwashes, mint gums etc. but these are just temporary solutions to a sticky condition. Homoeopathic remedies can provide a permanent cure for bad breath. The alternate system of healing cures halitosis by identifying the root cause of the problem and tackling it with natural Homeopathic medicines like-
- Merc Sol: This is the best Homeopathic remedy for bad breath which is accompanied by a moist mouth due to increased saliva production with an offensive odour. The salivary glands are found to be overactive and produce saliva in high amounts. Along with excessive saliva production, the patient also feels thirsty all the time. Merc Sol also helps in treating bad breath due to dental problems like tooth decay and gum infections along with spongy, bleeding gums as well as treating halitosis with ulcers in the mouth.
- Pulsatilla: This is an excellent Homeopathic medicine for bad breath with dry mouth. Also, the patient has no desire to drink water despite a dry mouth, which only adds to the offensiveness of the odour. The tongue is covered with thick mucus. The taste of mouth also varies from salty, bitter and foul or in a few cases, having no taste at all.
- Kreosote: A good Homeopathic remedy for bad breath due to decayed teeth or caries. This remedy is indicated when a patient complains of bleeding from gums along with decayed teeth. Bitter taste in mouth is also frequently noticed.
- Hepar Sulph and Carbo Veg: Homeopathic remedies par excellence for bad breath with gum infections like Gingivitis or inflamed gums and Pyorrhoea Alveolaris which causes discharge of pus and/or blood from gums. Hepar Sulph is indicated when only pus is discharged from the gums with offensive breath. It helps in absorption of the pus from gums, thereby reducing the intensity of bad breath. Carbo Veg is the best Homeopathic remedy to treat foul breath associated due to the discharge of both pus and blood from gums.
- Carbolic Acid: This Homoeopathic treatment is effective in treating bad breath with constipation. The accompanying symptoms include a bloated abdomen due to constipation and excessive wind.
- Belladona and Hepar Sulph: Homeopathic medicines for bad breath due to throat infections like tonsillitis.

Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder that is caused by the presence of an extra chromosome. A genetic condition, it causes physical and cognitive impairments and can lead to disabilities and increase the risk of a number of health problems.
Each cell in our body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes where one chromosome in the pair comes from the mother and the other comes from the father. But in the individuals with Down syndrome, the chromosome 21 has an extra copy. This means that there are three copies instead of the usual two. The reasons behind this genetic abnormality remains unknown as of yet, but there are a few risk factors that might increase the chances of the condition.
- Women who are older than 35 years of age have a higher risk of their children being born with Down syndrome.
- If a woman has a child with Down syndrome, then chances are that the next child might be born with the condition as well.
- Though uncommon, Down syndrome has been seen to have been passed from parent to child.
Children born with Down syndrome exhibit certain characteristic symptoms which include flattened facial features, a short neck and eyes that slant upwards. Ears that are atypically shaped and muscles that lack tone are also symptoms of Down syndrome. Physical growth and development of the child are also hindered by the condition. A child with Down syndrome might also display social and mental disabilities that include a short span for attention, a lack of judgment and issues with impulse control.
Down syndrome can lead to a number of medical complications that include but are not limited to visual impairment, leukemia, chronic constipation, dementia, hypothyroidism and Alzheimer’s disease in the later stages of life.
Homeopathic treatment methods of Down syndrome focus on the development and improvement of the behavioral and cognitive abilities of a child with Down syndrome. The treatment that is usually prescribed includes homeopathic medicines and bio-neural supplements that help remedy the disorder. These also reduce the effects that the condition might exert on the physical growth and intellectual development of the child.
A child with Down syndrome might find it difficult to communicate and recognize objects and people. Homeopathic treatment can help remedy these shortcomings. Homeopathic treatment for Down syndrome should be initiated at the earliest possible in order to help the child with behavioral and physical development. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
When it comes to long-term diseases that cannot be cured but need to be managed, homoeopathy is often a preferred form of medication. This is because medication in such conditions needs to be taken for extended periods of time and homoeopathy has negligible side effects. Homeopathy is also suitable for children and adults alike and can be taken alongside other medication without affecting it. Diabetes is one such condition that can benefit from homoeopathic treatment. Homeopathy does not address only the symptoms that can be seen but affects the root cause of the disease. Here are a few ways homoeopathy addresses the root cause of diabetes.
- It helps manage blood sugar: Fluctuating blood sugar levels is the most characteristics symptom of diabetes. Instead of waiting for your blood sugar level to increase or decrease, taking homoeopathic medication regularly can help stabilise blood sugar levels. Some common homoeopathic remedies that aid in this are Uranium Nitricum, Syzygium Jambolanum, Cephalandra Indica and Phosphoric Acid. Biochemical combinations such as bio combination No. 7 and Natrum Phos 3x that help regulate the natural salts in the body can also help stabilise blood sugar.
- It is a combination of holistic and individualistic medication: When prescribing homoeopathic remedies a doctor will take into account not only the disease and its symptoms but the mental, emotional and overall health of the person. While stress may be increasing one person’s urge to snack and thereby lead to spikes in blood sugar levels, anxiety may decrease another person’s appetite and hence lead to dips in the blood sugar levels. These conditions are taken into account at the time of consultation and homoeopathy may be prescribed to manage these causes and thereby regulate blood sugar levels. Thus, two people suffering from diabetes may not be treated with the same medication. this is one of the factors that makes homoeopathic treatment safe for children and infants.
- It is a constitutional form of treatment: Homoeopaths also give importance to the patients’ past medical history and their family history. This helps them understand the genesis of the disease and treat it accordingly. In doing this homoeopathic medication is able to treat underlying causes of the disease as well as improve the person’s overall health. When it comes to diabetes, homoeopathic medication not only helps stabilise blood sugar levels but also improves the body’s ability to absorb and metabolise sugar and helps all the internal organs function optimally.

The main pigment responsible for the hair and skin color is melanin. Melanocytes are the cells involved in the formation of melanin. Vitiligo is a dermatological condition (depigmentation) characterized by white spots or patches that appear in the body. Lack or absence of melanin is often responsible for the appearance of the white patches. Improper functioning or destruction of the melanocytes may interfere with the cell's ability to produce melanin. The condition can also affect your hair, scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes, resulting in their premature graying or whitening.
Vitiligo can be localized (only one or very few body parts are affected), generalized (affecting many body parts) or segmented (the condition affects only one side of the body). An autoimmune condition such as Diabetes (Type-1) or Hashimoto's thyroiditis may trigger the destruction of the melanocytes. Vitiligo may also be a hereditary condition. In some cases, stress or exposure to harmful chemicals may be responsible for the destruction of the melanocytes.
While many people confuse vitiligo with leucoderma, there is a small difference between the two. Like vitiligo, the white watches in leucoderma appear due to the destruction of the melanocytes. However, the destruction of the melanocytes in the case of leucoderma may result from an accident, a cut, burn or tear.
When it comes to the treatment, many people prefer homeopathy over conventional treatments and medications. Being natural with negligible or no side effects are the main USP of homeopathic treatment. People with vitiligo and leucoderma have benefitted immensely from the treatment. The treatment may not provide you with immediate results, but it is worth your time and patience. Most of the homeopathic medicines activate the melanocytes. This activation triggers the formation of the melanin, thereby resulting in re-pigmentation.
The following homeopathic medicines are very effective against vitiligo and leucoderma.
- Silicea 30: Silicea 30 is helpful for people with a sensitive skin that appears waxy and pale. In such patients, the patches or spots are not typically white but slightly rose-colored. There is extensive sweating of the hands and feet. The fingertips also appear cracked with brittle nails.
- Arsenic Album: In some patients with vitiligo or leucoderma, the skin may appear dry and rough. In addition to the white patches, a person may complain of exhaustion and asthma (not in all patients). The person may show signs of extreme restlessness and anxiety. They freak out over cleanliness and neatness. Such patients benefit immensely from Arsenic Album.
- Calcarea Carb is used to treat vitiligo where the patches appear milky white in color. There may be a weakness in the bones as well.
- Sepia: Sepia is used when people with vitiligo distant themselves from their families and loved ones.
- Nitric Acid 30 is used in the case of the white spots appearing at the mouth, nipples, nose, eyes, penis, vulva (mucous junctions).
Also, Sulfur, Psoralea Coryl 3X, Staphysagria, Borax, are equally helpful in treating vitiligo and leucoderma. To play it safe, use the medicines only after consulting a specialist. Self-medication may not be a wise idea. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Fungus or fungi are microorganisms which are present everywhere around you. From inside the house to out on the road, fungi are present all over. At times, they may enter the bloodstream through your skin and cause various fungal infections. Fungal infections should not be left to heal on their own. They need immediate medical treatment and can be cured as soon as proper medicine is administered. Homeopathy uses some of the most natural extracts or natural ingredients to cure fungal infections. This means that not only would your infection heal but also there would be no scope of any side effects. Some of these natural medicines against fungal infections are discussed below.
- Garlic: The medicinal properties of garlic are not less known to anyone. In fact, you can start consuming more garlic in your food to speed up your recovery. The antibacterial properties of garlic are many. You can make a fine paste of garlic and olive oil and apply on the affected area for at least thirty minutes before washing it off. Furthermore, for fungi infections in the vagina, wrap garlic in a gauge and then place it in the vagina for half an hour before removing it. However, since the vagina is one of the most delicate parts of the human body, it is recommended that you consult the homoeopathic practitioner before opting for self-medication.
- Tea Tree Oil: This might take some time or at least two to three weeks to show its effects. All you have to do is take tea tree oil and mix it with olive oil. Apply this mixture on the infected area at least twice a day. The anti-fungal properties of tea tree kill the infection causing fungi and the antiseptic properties prevent spreading of the infection further. However, pregnant women must not make use of this method.
- Olive Leaf: Not only do olives boost the immune system, but the leaf of the olive trees helps in curing fungal infections with its antifungal properties. Grind some of the olive leaves and apply the paste onto the affected area. This would help in curing your fungal infection faster.
Thus, these are some of the best natural remedies against fungal infections. It is always advisable to consult your local medical practitioner before administering any of these medicines. In fact, if the infection spreads or takes an unnaturally long time to heal, then it is best to consult your homoeopathic practitioner again for a higher dose of medicine. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Oily skin is a condition that can be characterized by shine on the skin and a large number of pores. The oil in question is a result of overactive sebaceous glands that produce excessive sebum. This can result in acne and blackheads. Summer is a time of the year where skin problems due to oily skin are worsened by factors such as sweat and dust. So proper skin care is necessary in order to negate the effects of oily skin.
Homeopathic cures to keep oil on the skin at bay are:
- Psorinum: Your greasy skin often casts a shadow on your natural complexion. Oily skin makes you look exhausted at all times of the day. You can benefit from Psorinum as it deals with the over active sebaceous glands, cleans the pores of your skin, treats pimples and also fights dark patches. People who sweat profusely and suffer from body odor problems or people susceptible to cold are usually advised to take this medicine.
- Berberis Aquifolium: No amount of make up can mar the appeal of clear skin. If you have oily skin, you are likely to face dullness. Since dirt easily settles on a greasy skin, it can make you look darker than usual. Berberis Aquifolium is an unparalleled medication in homeopathy that treats the above conditions without any side effects.
- Silicea and Kali Bromatum: Excess oil secretion often leads to the development of pus containing acne or pimples. These pimples, when diminish, may leave permanent or long lasting marks on your face. Scars and marks further result in pigmentation. Such problems can take a huge toll on your psychological health, leading you to be overly concerned about the way you look or losing interest in self appearance. In this regard, Silicea and Kali Bromatum can work wonders for your oily skin and its resultant effects.
