Here are symptoms, stages and treatments Piles or Hemorrhoids<br/><br/>Hello, everyone, I m Dr. S...

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<br/><br/>Hello, everyone, I m Dr. Sanket ...

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.

Best Homeopathic Medicines for Treatment of Diabetes!

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition wherein the body doesn’t metabolise sugar properly. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, is responsible for carrying the sugar or glucose, from the bloodstream to the individual cells. When the pancreas fails to produce insulin, glucose builds up in your bloodstream and enters your urine. Homeopathy focuses on the overall health of the individual. Homeopathic medicines for diabetes include:

1. Abroma Augusta: This homeopathic medicine is best for diabetics who have weak muscles, increased appetites and frequent urination.
2. Phosphorus: If symptoms include weak vision, Phosphorus is the best remedy for it.
3. Syzygium Jambolanum: This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for diabetes mellitus. It acts efficiently and promptly in lowering sugar levels.
4. Phosphoric acid: If you feel exhausted or weak all the time, either physically or mentally, then Phosphoric acid is beneficial. Weak memory, forgetfulness and numb feet are also treated with Phosphoric acid.
5. Gymnema Sylvestre: Sometimes, diabetics drastically lose weight and have low energy levels. Gymnema Sylvestre is an excellent remedy for such symptoms.

Sometimes one or more homeopathic medicines may be combined to treat symptoms. Some common combinations include:

1. Lachesis, Arnica, Belladonna and Phosphorus are combined in a treatment to treat retinopathy, which is damage to the eyes caused by diabetes.
2. Serum Anguillae, Arsenic Album and Lycopodium are used together to treat kidney damage (nephropathy) in diabetics.
3. Helonias, Sulphur and Phosphoric acid are taken to deal with neuropathy or nerve problems such as numbness in feet and hands.
4. Syzygium Jambolanum is combined with Secale Cornutum to treat skin ulcers, which is a common problem among diabetics.
5. For people suffering from constipation due to diabetes, Natrum Sulph, Defloratum and Carlsbad are the best medicines.
6. To improve weak memory, Phosphoric acid, Nux Vom and Kali Phos are the best remedies for diabetics.
7. Sometimes diabetics complain of extreme, incapacitating weakness. To improve energy and boost overall health, Carbo Veg, Phosphoric acid, Phosphorus and Arsenic Album are recommended.

Is Homeopathy The Best Line Of Treatment For Kidney Stone?

Is Homeopathy The Best Line Of Treatment For Kidney Stone?

Kidney Stones, also known as Renal Calculi is a condition usually brought about by inadequate hydration and consumption of food high in calcium, but in most cases it a hereditary condition. The most commonly opted for treatment is surgery to remove the stones.

  • If you do, surgical procedures are neither the answer, nor a plausible option for you. Besides being risky, surgery clearly isn't effective in bringing about an end to the condition on a permanent basis. Homeopathic remedies, on the other hand, are not only safe, they offer as little of side effects as possible.
  • Homeopathic treatments of kidney stones are also proved to have been effective in most cases.
  • What are the most common homeopathic alternatives to suppress kidney stone formation? Berberis Vulgaris is the most reputed homeopathic drug when it comes to diluting the stone in the kidney and also in reducing the chronic pain that is often associated with stones. It is also said to improve chances of mitigating periodic bouts of kidney stone formations. Berberis Vulgaris is effective for various kinds of kidney and renal stones. In addition to this drug.
  • Sarsaparilla, Hydrangea, and Benzoic Acid also prove effective in the long run. Sustained practice of such Homeopathic remedies along with increased intake of fluids and adequate exercise go a long way to ensure cessation of kidney stone formation.

Why Homeopathy Is A Good Option For Osteoarthritis?

BHMS, MD-Homeopathy, PGPC - Preventive Cardiology

Why Homeopathy Is A Good Option For Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease that affects the various bone joints, leading to painful movement and thereby limiting the patient's mobility.  Knees, hips, joints of hands and legs are affected.

Symptoms of OA:

The symptoms revolve around the bones and joints including:

  1. Pain and stiffness of the joints
  2. Swelling of the joints
  3. Inability to form a clench
  4. Difficulty holding things 
  5. Stooped posture 
  6. Weakness of legs and hands
  7. Reduced height over time.

In most people with OA, the options in allopathy are limited to nonsteroidal analgesics to control pain and in severe cases, surgical correction.

However, homeopathy takes into account the triggering symptoms, the associated symptoms, and the status of the immune system before deciding on a treatment regimen. With this holistic approach, homeopathy achieve the following:

  1. Reduce the pain, swelling ,and stiffness
  2. Slows the pace of further degeneration
  3. Improves mobility of the affected joint(s)
  4. Improves the body's overall immune system, thereby allow the body to promote healing on its own
  5. Homeopathic intervention in the early phases is particularly helpful, as it will arrest disease progression
  6. It also enable better absorption of minerals and nutrients essential for bone health. This allows healing of existing bone fractures and avoids further bone damage by strengthening the bones.
  7. Homeopathic treatment also enables the body's chemical state to withstand stress and illnesses better.
  8. It vitalizes the body's natural healing and ability to repair itself, to create a better state of health and well-being

Some of the popular homeopathic medications based on areas and associated symptoms are listed below:

Knee Joints:

  1. Bryonia Alba: Pain worsened with movement, relieved with rest; associated with swelling and stiffness of the joints; difficulty in climbing stairs.
  2. Calcarea Carbonica: Swelling and pain that is worsened when getting up from a seated position. The joints feel cold and painful.
  3. Sulphur: Worse with climbing stairs, prolonged standing, feeling of warmth in the knees. 

Hip Joints:

  1. Colcynthis: Cramping pain improved by pressure.
  2. Rhus Toxicodendron: Pain when getting up from a seated position.
  3. Pulsatilla Nigricans: Associated with muscle stiffness and cramping.

Finger Joints:

  1. Antimonium Crudum: The pain pain gets worse in cold weather, improved by applying something warm) 
  2. Benzoic Acid: There is an associated crackling sound when the fingers are moved or if there are nodes in the area of joints. The urine is highly offensive in these people. 
  3. Calcara Fluorica: There are stony hard nodes formed in the joint area, greatly reducing the mobility.

These medications are safe, completely natural, do not induce habit formation, and are approved by FDA.  They don't just treat the symptoms but help manage the patient as a whole.  This justifies why homeopathy is definitely a good option in treating osteoarthritis.

Common Allergies - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help?

Common Allergies - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help?

Allergies are an extreme reaction of the immune system of the body due to a hypersensitivity to foreign substances such as food, clothing, dust or pollen, among others. The reaction by the immune system may be quite damaging to your body. The allergies tend to vary vastly from one person to the other and the allergens also tend to differ. Some of the most common types of allergies commonly prevalent among the general population are – food allergies, nasal allergies, dust allergies, skin rashes due to contact with an allergen among others.

Homeopathic approach to treating allergies
Homeopathy is a symptom based medication and doesn’t only look to treat or lessen the symptoms but also cure the problems from deep down. It is also useful in relieving symptoms as well. Homeopathy takes into account not only the outward symptoms but the general physical and mental constitution of a person to prescribe the best medicine or combination of medications for you.

Some common homeopathic treatments for common allergies are mentioned below:

  1. Nasal allergies: One of, if not the most common form of allergic reactions, nasal allergies can be caused by a host of allergens such as dust, pollen, cloth fibers among many others. Some of the common symptoms of nasal allergies are nonstop discharge from the nose, sneezing, itching in the nose and throat, watery eyes among others. Some of the effective homeopathic medications depending on the exactness of the symptoms that may be prescribed by a doctor for your condition are Kali Bichromicum, Arsenic Album, Gelsemium and Allium Cepa. Your doctor will evaluate the exact symptoms you have and only then prescribe either one or a combination of these medications to you.
  2. Skin allergies These are another common form of allergies which occur on the skin, mostly due to contact with allergens. Eczema or allergic dermatitis is the most common form of skin allergies. Other problems such as hives may occur where areas of the skin start forming raised, red patches. The skin may also generally swell which can be temporarily relieved by cold compress. Some of the common medications prescribed in these cases are Sulphur, Urtica Urens and Apis Mellifica
  3. Food allergies: Food items are also one of the common causes behind allergies. The manifestation of food allergies may occur in four ways, which are Itchy and runny nose with discharges, runny and itchy eyes, and problems with breathing; manifestations on the skin such as hives, swelling or any other form of an itchy rash; gastric issues such as loose stools; bloating, nausea, vomiting and pain in the stomach being the most common symptoms; and some allergies may also cause the mouth, face and lips to swell as well. Some of the most common food allergens are nuts, milk and milk products, seafood, especially shellfish, eggs, wheat. The doctor will study your symptoms and disposition before deciding the best form of medication for you. Some of the common medications prescribed for food allergies depending on the type of food causing the allergies are Carbo vegetabilis, Sulphur, Nux Vomica, Urtica Urens, Lycopodium, Natrum Muriaticum and Colocynth and others
  4. Dust allergies: This is by far one of the most common forms of allergies and is caused due to the inhalation of dust. Common symptoms are excessive sneezing, runny and blocked nose and difficulties in breathing. Some of the commonly prescribed forms of medication for such cases are Lycopersicum, Bromium, Arsenic Album

Homeopathy - Debunking Some Myths!

Homeopathy - Debunking Some Myths!

There are scores of myths about Homeopathy which are circulated to discredit this all natural and highly effective healing treatment. In this article we are going to dispel all the popular myths relating to homeopathy so that you can judge for yourself and grasp the science of homeopathy in a better way.

Myth #1: Homeopathy is just balls of sugar which comes with a placebo effect
This is an absolutely erroneous idea. Homeopathic medicines are not just sugar pills- they come in various forms like dilution, tablet, ointment, pellets, mother tincture etc. Homeopathy is becoming popular around the globe because it is gentle, non-toxic, and efficacious and a much cheaper alternative to allopathic medicine.

Myth #2: Allopathic medicines cannot be taken in combination with homeopathy
This is yet another popular misconception about homeopathy. As we know, allopathic medicines, when stopped altogether all of a sudden, can suddenly flare up the intensity of the symptoms. No competent homeopathy doctor would advise you to discontinue your allopathic medication abruptly. Generally, the dosage of the allopathic medicine is reduced till it is stopped when steady improvement sets in.

Myth #3: Intake of tea/coffee or onion and garlic is cut down in homeopathic treatment
Though this was a popular practice in homeopathy, no modern homeopathic doctor would restrict your consumption of beverages or onion/garlic. These substances will never interfere with the medicine as long as they are consumed in moderation while maintaining a time gap between these items and the medicine.

Myth #4: Homeopathic medicines take forever to bring in effects
The time required for the homeopathic medicine to act greatly depends on the disease itself. Acute diseases which build up quickly (such as headache, fever or common cold) can be very quickly treated with the right homeopathic medicine. However, chronic diseases such as asthma, arthritis, migraine, eczema, bronchitis etc., surely need some time to be completed cured.

Myth #5: Homeopathy works only in children
This is yet another common mistake most people make since homeopathy is known to work wonders for children and adults alike. When homeopathic medication is given to children or adults right at the onset of the symptoms, the disease is not only healed but the resistance of the child is also improved. Homeopathic medications would prevent the disease from becoming chronic.

Myth #6: Homeopathic is herbal or Ayurvedic medicine
Though Homeopathy makes use of microdoses of extracts from herbs and plants, it should never be confused with herbal or Ayurvedic medications. The science of homeopathy which had its origin in Germany is considerably different from the workings of other alternative medicines such as Ayurveda.
