How much time it takes? What care to be taken in asthma?
Treatment with allopathic medicine on regular basis is the gold standard for asthma. No definite treatment in homeopathy.

I am suffering from Tonsil Stones which appears and disappears at times. Please suggest a remedy. Thanks.

Till they are not troublesome, you may safely disregard them. If producing minor symptoms like a bad breath, or a prickly feeling, you may apply pressure adjacent to them with a blunt object like the handle of your tooth brush or a wooden ice-cream stick, now and then. Surgery is the last option, not generally suggested by the surgeon but opted by the patient if suffering in different ways.

Troubled by Sinus Problems - Opt for Homeopathy!

Troubled by Sinus Problems - Opt for Homeopathy!

Sinusitis or sinus infections can be quite a debilitating ailment when it becomes recurrent. Sinuses are cavities within our head just behind the nose which extends up to our forehead and to certain areas of the cheeks. These cavities are filled with a mucosal lining which helps you breathe and also filters the air which goes to the lungs. When the mucosal lining gets inflamed, it blocks the normal drainage of the mucus into the nose. This results in headaches, nasal polyps and general discomfort. Homeopathy offers some great remedies for this condition, without side effects. Some of these are discussed below.

Homeopathic remedies for sinus problems

  1. Belladonna: This medication is very effective when the sinusitis has resulted in a suppressed discharge from the nose which occurs intermittently. If you have a splitting headache which feels unbearable, Belladonna can help relieve the symptoms quickly. If the infection of the sinus has spread to the throat and results in cough, Belladonna can be equally effective in those circumstances as well.
  2. Pulsatilla: If you are experiencing a greenish mucosal discharge from your nose without a painful burning sensation within it, Pulsatilla can be a very effective cure. Another indication where this medication is very effective is when you have headaches centered just above your eyes rather than over the forehead or other parts of your face.
  3. Kali Bichrome: This is another commonly prescribed medication to deal with the symptoms of sinusitis as well as to reduce inflammation and cure sinusitis altogether. If you have a lot of mucosal discharge that drops into your throat along with discharges through the nose, Kali Bichrome is the drug to go to. Other indications where it is effective are pain and heaviness in the nose and the inability to breathe with headaches in and around the eyes.
  4. Silicea: If you are feeling cold and constantly chilly along with nasal stuffiness, Silicea is the medication to go to. Along with discharges, your nose may form hard mucous crusts within it. Trying to manually remove these crusts may also cause bleeding. Silicea will reduce these symptoms and is also effective in reducing a headache which occurs mostly on the left side of your face.
  5. Merc Sol: If you are experiencing a yellowish green discharge from the nose along with a burning sensation and increased saliva secretion in your mouth, Merc Sol is the remedy to turn to. It is also effective wherein the headache has spread all around the head.

Allergy is not a sign of astma. It is a tendency of an individual to react in an abnormal way to stimuli like drugs atmospheric pollutants dust etc.

My wife has been suffering cough for 3-4 months and always feel bad for bad smell from her mouth.

Dentist, Lucknow
Bad breath can be due to the pharyngeal infection or sinus infection as in cough n cold. It should be relievd when you recover from cold n cough. You should also not ignore local oral factors like deposits on teeth n cavities which also produce bad breath and made obvious by cough. So dental chk up is also must.

Cough - 3 Easy Home Remedies for Treating it!

Cough - 3 Easy Home Remedies for Treating it!

Have you been coughing so often that it is intervening with your daily routine? Drop that bottle of cough syrup that gives you an instant relief but along with a feeling of drowsiness. Though coughing may appear to be a simple issue, it is very harassing and can lead to various severe problems. Ayurveda has the power to alleviate the suffering to a considerable degree. The Pranavaha Srotas show how the “vata” that controls the respiratory systems in the body can be balanced with Ayurvedic means so that you are relieved.

Symptoms and their mistreatments
There are two types of cough, one with the phlegm that’s termed as wet cough and creates congestion, due to which you are unable to breathe. The other type of cough is the dry one, which hurts your throat and forms a pressure on the chest area while you cough. Well, whether dry or wet, a simple disease related to coughing is powerful enough to deprive you of your night’s sleep. If you are a patient of bronchitis or any other respiratory disease like sinus, then you are required to deal with the nagging problem of cough.

Ayurveda offers a great way of relieving cough.

  1. Gargles: Whenever you feel soreness around your neck, take a glassful of warm water and add a pinch of salt in it and start to gargle. The salt would help to drain out the excess fluids from the inflamed areas, thus, reducing the symptoms. It also helps in removing the mucus and thinning of the mucus. Gargling with salt should be avoided by patients suffering from hyper-tension. Such people can use simple warm water without salt.
  2. Take honey: It is not feasible to gargle anywhere and everywhere and in such cases, you can have a spoonful of honey as it is believed to soothe the irritation in the throat area. If you have a particular tendency to cough during the night time, then a glassful of warm milk with some honey can relieve your suffering. Diabetic patients should avoid honey.
  3. Turmeric remedies: A traditional Indian remedy to alleviate soreness of the throat region is to drink hot milk mixed with honey. You may even opt for turmeric gargles where you will have to mix half teaspoon of turmeric along with the same quantity of table salt in a glassful of lukewarm water and gargle with it. To get rid of dry cough, alternately, you can mix some turmeric powder in a spoonful of honey and take it thrice in a day.

Allopathic and synthetic medicines are generally loaded with numerous side-effects including nausea and drowsiness. In the worst case, it may lead to dependence and addiction as well. Thus, embracing Ayurveda can help you get out of the ailment permanently.

I have been having intentional cough to clear mucus from my throat for months which was always clear. From 3-4 days it has changed its colour to pale yellow in mornings and sometimes mucus deposited inside my nose also turns up to be pale yellow. What can be the cause?

General Physician, Mumbai
The mucus gets accumulated and gets infected. Yellow or green mucus means there is now bacterial infection in the mucus secretions.

Pulmonary Hypertension - 10 Ways to Treat it

Pulmonary Hypertension - 10 Ways to Treat it

Pulmonary hypertension is a medical condition that arises when the blood pressure remains consistently high in the vessels of the lungs. This condition can develop from a completely unrelated medical condition and is more prevalent among women. 

Pulmonary Hypertension can be a hard disease to diagnose. While it has no permanent cure, the medication depends on how far the disease has advanced. From group 1 PAH to group 5 PAH, pulmonary hypertension has 5 stages of advancement. 

Here is a list of 10 ways by which this disease can be kept under control along with the prescribed medication:

  1. Quit smoking: Smoking aggravates pulmonary hypertension. It has adverse effects on both the heart and the lung. It is therefore of utmost importance to quit smoking. If you fail to control your urge of smoking, contact your doctor who can suggest a quitting plan.
  2. Avoid high altitude: Patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension should avoid flying and living at high altitude. An altitude of 8000 feet and above can worsen the symptoms. It is therefore suggested that you do not take flights for travelling or come down below the altitude of 2428 meters if you are living in hilly areas.
  3. A healthy diet: A healthy diet consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat and whole grains should be consumed on a daily basis. A nutritious diet goes a long way in keeping pulmonary hypertension in check.
  4. Adequate rest: A minimum of 8 hours of sleep is recommended for patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension. A good night’s sleep and frequent naps keeps fatigue at bay. 
  5. Pregnancy and birth control pills: Avoiding pregnancy is a must for patients suffering from this disease. Pregnancy can be life threatening for the both the baby and the mother. Birth control pills should be avoided as well. It greatly increases the chance of blood clots. 
  6. Maintain a steady blood pressure: Any activities that lower the blood pressure should be avoided by all means. Spending too much time in a bathtub or prolonged stress increases the chances fainting.
  7. Become more active: Patients of pulmonary hypertension often run out of breath with little to no activity. While activities such as weight lifting should be strictly avoided, some exercise or daily jogging can fetch good result in keeping a patient healthy.
  8. Get vaccine on time: Doctors often suggest vaccines if the patient suffers from pneumonia or influenza. It should be ensured that such vaccines are taken on time. For patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension, prolonged exposure to diseases such as pneumonia can wreak havoc.
  9. Regular checkup: Regular follow up with the doctor is of prime importance. Any possible side effects or deterioration can be arrested with constant supervision.
  10. On time medication: Patients of pulmonary hypertension should ensure that all the medicines suggested by the doctor are taken at regular intervals as per prescribed dosage.

My son is suffering with cough from last one month. He cough only in morning or midnight not much. Cough syrup and home nuske ginger honey do not work as much to completely rid of cough. And I am giving him montair lc syrup from last one month. He has very less immunity. What should I do to make him rid of this cough. Last year also he suffered with cough, cold and ear infection for many days in winter season and he took antibiotics for many days at that time. Every year he suffer with this problem.

Hello Navita Your son appears to be allergic to the atmospheric conditions during winters. Cough syrups will help control the acute attack but they will not help prevent it or build immunity. For that I suggest you undertake homeopathic treatment for your son as it will help build immunity and over a period of time the frequency and intensity of the attack will reduce. Also give him plenty of fluids specially warm as they will soothe him and provide hydration. in fact let him drink lukewarm water as often as possible in winter. avoid cold and sour food altogether. Please get in touch with me if you have any more queries.

I have a persistent dry cough for past 5 days. Itching in throat causes bouts of coughing. I have tried taking vapour as well as hot water gurgling but to no avail. What more home remedies/medicines are there which can relieve situation. Thanks.

This is not a prescription A share on home remedies of clove .cardamom karaikay, ginger tea or lozenge ,turmericmilk etc. No clear statistically significant info is available to the best of my knowledge. Medically I think aloud that you might be suffering from sinusitis where in mucus from the nose is dribbling down the throats hits the vocal cords and triggers. Cough. Consult a pulmonologist or an ENT surgeon.
