Hi. I am suffering for rigidity in the body and not able to walk properly like earlier. Doctors opinion is this is early stage of Parkinson and prescribed Syndopa plus, pramipex o. 5mg. What should i do now?

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
Parkinsons is a neurological disorder so the aim of treatment in such patients is to preserve a patients independence and treat motor and non-motor symptoms relief by minimizing the adverse effects of medicine. Continue taking the medicine that a neurologist have recommended you as it will helps to decrease the level of symptoms. As you mentioned your muscles start developing rigidity so I would advice you to please consult some nearby physiotherapist to start your treatment to make work independently by increasing your functional performance. In such cases we recommend to take medicine along with physio to get cured and reduce symptoms. In physiotherapy we have several techniques to treat Parkinson’s patients like stretching exercises, manipulation techniques, mobility program, physical conditioning, co-ordination/balance training etc. In the mean time you can start doing all joint movements because it will make your joints active and decrease the chances to develop more rigidity. For any further detail please contact right away. Best Regards.

I have migraine since I was 16 years old. Whenever I'm stressed, the migraine comes back even if I take medicines. How can I stop getting stressed?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
You can never stop stress from occurring. Stress like air is omnipresent around you. All you have to learn is manage stress and learn how to relax in times of stress. It is an art that you have to learn with practice. You may start with trying some relaxation exercises daily. Begin with simple breathing exercises for 20 minutes daily. Yoga and meditation are equally good options. Avoid artificial stressors like smoking, alcohol etc. Eat healthy, exercise daily, stay healthy. If migraine still occurs you may need assistance with medications. Consult me online if you so wish.

Migraine Headache

MBBS, Diplomate of American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
Neurologist, Delhi
Play video

Hi, I’m Dr Sonia Lal Gupta and I’m a neurologist at M.P Heart Clinic in New Delhi. I specialise in headaches and strokes.

Why headaches, you might ask?

That’s one of the most common problems that people face and the reason why they actually go to the doctor as well. Interestingly though, only one-third of the people actually get treatment for their headache. So when it comes to a headache, one of the most common types of headaches is called Migraine and a lot of people suffer from this migraine for years and years and years without realising that what they have is actually migraine, for which they can get treatment and they can feel better.

So what exactly is a migraine?

A migraine is, typically, a unilateral, a one sided, or a headache that happens on both the sides. It’s a thumping headache. People usually say that they feel a pounding pain. It is usually accompanied by nausea, light sensitivity – you do not like how the light makes you feel, noise sensitivity – even noise bothers you, and all you want to do is sit in a dark room and sleep.

So when it comes to a migraine, what are the different phases of it?

When there is a prodrome phase where you kind of start knowing the migraine is going to come on. You might feel very tired, very irritable. Then after that is the aura phase which not many people have. But some people describe flashing lights or some numbness in the hands. Followed by the headache phase which can last anywhere from four hours to seventy-two hours. Then after the pain goes away, there is a phase called the postdrome phase where you can actually feel exhausted and tired up to twenty-four hours even after a headache has gone away. So think about it, it can take up to at least two to three days at times for you to recover from one single migraine.

There are a lot of triggers of a migraine you can now about which includes lack of sleep, hunger, stress. Food triggers like red wine, chocolate, and many other triggers depending from person to person. But to know more about what you should do, you should talk to your doctor that you have a migraine.

You can always contact me on Lybrate or you can call us our M.P Heart Clinic number which is on the Lybrate website, to meet me and we can help get your migraines under control.

Thank you

Autism - Role of Homeopathy in Treating it

Autism - Role of Homeopathy in Treating it

Are you suffering from autism and looking for an effective treatment for the condition? Autism is a complex neurological disorder, which is commonly diagnosed in children within three years of age. It is a result of impaired brain functioning and it expresses itself in the form of disrupted social and communication skills in the patient. This condition affects the development of a child by a great extent.

Causes
Autism happens due to several structural and functional changes in the brain. The exact cause of the condition is yet to be determined. Genetic predisposition, metabolic imbalance, intake of certain drugs and the exposure to harmful environmental toxins may lead to autism in children.

Homeopathic treatment
Several protocols of homeopathic treatment are undertaken for treating autistic patients. The method to be used depends on the circumstances of the condition. A variety of homeopathic techniques are required for curing a person with autism. They include the following:

  1. Isopathy is a treatment in which a substance is given to the patient, which cause the illness during homeopathic potency
  2. Classical homeopathic medicines
  3. CEASE Protocol
  4. Homeopathic bowel nasodes, which are considered to be an important part of the recovery process from autism. They help in healing damaged bowels and the symptoms of anxiety and rage.
  5. Biochemical tissue salts are used in autistic patients who face problems in the assimilation of nutrients because of a compromised gastrointestinal tract.

The methods work effectively, along with conventional medicines and other treatment measures like GAPS diet, osteopathy, biomedical intervention, cranial sacral therapy, chelation, and traditional Chinese medicine.

Homeopathic approach towards the treatment of autism
The homeopathic approach in the treatment of autism is holistic in nature, which aims at treating the genetic tendencies along with strategic management. Firstly, a homeopathic evaluation is undertaken for a child with autism, where all details regarding his family medical history, which may be associated with autism, are assessed. The analysis also considers the impaired functions of a child such as his behavior, communication, speech, tantrums and social skills.

There are around 20 different types of common homeopathic medicines, which are prescribed for the treatment of autism. The exact medicine, its combination, dosage and other support medicines depend on the child’s case history.

The homeopathic medicines used for the treatment of autism are completely natural and safe, devoid of any form of harmful toxin. Hence, no side effect is caused on the body while undertaking homeopathic treatment. Using homeopathic measures for about six months will lead to improvements in a child’s autism symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopathy and ask a free question.

Now Say - GO Migraine

Now say - Go Migraine

Migraine headache is usually associated with one sided throbbing headache, with nausea ( the tendency to vomit), vomiting and sensitivity to light. In a migraine there is excessive stimulation (constriction and sudden dilatation) of brain and blood vessels.

Causes-

Improper metabolism, suppression of natural urges, anger, jealousy, grief, poor elimination, intake of dry, pungent and salty food, intake of polluted food, mental and physical stress, viewing of tv for long periods, reading with insufficient light, sleeplessness etc.

Origin of a migraine headache
Due to the causative factors, pitta dosha obstructs the flow of Vata dosha in the brain, causing throbbing pain.

If you would like to consult with me privately, please click on consult now.

Management-

  • Sneha nasya - instillation of medicated oils can be carried to the nostrils. Shadbindu tailam or anu tailam yield significant benefits in this condition.
  • Apply a paste of freshly ground clay or freshly ground sandalwood to the forehead, let dry, rub off by hand and wash.
  • Sugar powder 16 parts, vamshalochana 8 parts, pippali (long pepper) 4 parts, ela (cardamom) 2 parts, cinnamon - 1 part. Make fine powder and mix it, keep in tight moisture-free container. Take half teaspoon thrice daily with honey.
  • Mix one-forth teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes.
  • Add chamomile powder to 1 cup of boiling water. Transfer the liquid to a cup. Drink when hot. It gives fast relief from a migraine.
  • Grind 10-12 grains of black pepper and 10-12 grains of rice with water to make it a paste. Apply this paste on the affected area of the head for 15-20 minutes.
  • Take half a glass of carrot juice. Add half a glass of spinach juice. Mix well. Drink this juice to cure the migraine.
  • Practicing meditation is highly recommended.


Diet-

  • Apple, mango, papaya, cheeku, guava.
  • Salad 1hr before lunch, 1hr before dinner.
  • Buttermilk, boiled rice sauted with cinnamon, cumin seeds, and garlic or asafetida are good in the daytime.
  • Have warm and easily digestible foods, boiled and steamed vegetables, soups, vegetable juices, porridge, brown rice and whole-wheat flour.
  • Avoid yogurt especially at night.

As your PP is high. If you are not taking any medications then its the time to start medications. Better to start with oral hypoglycemic agents. (OHA). These body pain and tiredness may be due to diabetes. Can start with METFORMIN 500mg once a day in between breakfast and see the result after 2 weeks. If it is improved then continue. There are side effects also. If you feel gastric trouble then consult again.

My father got homeopathic medicine for parkinson last week. After taking medicine his body got burns like sores. what it means?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Low potency homeopathic medicines may cause allergic reaction sometimes. Parkinson's disease is a neurological illness, which is gradually worsening condition. Researches have proven that with allopathy we can control its symptoms. Homeopathy does not have such a solid evidence. He may stop homeopathic medicines. He should take antiallergic treatment from local hospital. Later on, my suggestion is to continue allopathic medicines.
