You should take Mag phos 12 x - twice daily 4 tablets and additional dose at the time of pain. Secondly wear a knee-cap/crep-bandages if it helps you. Do hot and cold compress alternately till the time you get relief. Be vegetarian and never push too hard for climbing/walking. For further queries get back to me.

Gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. These procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. Use knee caps over the joints and avoid over exertion of the joint. This will greatly help.

I am 38yrs old woman. I have problem in my knee since childhood. My patellas are dislocated and as doctors told in childhood ligaments are also loose. As a result often the patella used to get twisted and I used to fell down and after that it was tremendous pain. The same problem persists today also. As I gained weight after birth of 2 children, the pain is now unbearable. Doctor suggested some physiotherapy for temporary relief in my childhood. What is the permanent remedy for this problem?

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Dear lybrate user there may be posibility of wear and tear of soft tissues in knee joint while injury. Do not go for strenous, heavy weight, overuse and pressurising works on knee joint. Avoid standing and sitting for long duration. As it will take some time you need to massage the joint with little warm mahanayana taila morning for about 4-6 wks. Wear knee caps while on rest periods to immobalise the joint for about 30-45mnts every day. Go for light streatching exercises. Take healthy diet and adequate sleep.

Psoriatic Arthritis - Can Homeopathy Help Treat it?

Psoriasis is an auto-immune provocative disease and that is known to primarily affect the skin. The skin lesions basically appear on the skin above the knees and elbow. It is basically classified into 5 types namely plaque, guttate, pustular, inverse and erythrodermic. The major causes of this condition are stress, injury and cold climatic condition.

The skin condition is marked by white scaly patches that appear on the top layer of the skin. Psoriatic arthritis occurs in individuals who suffer from psoriasis for a longer time. The weakening of the immune system of the body is the result of the inflammation of the joints and that cause the Psoriatic arthritis.

Indications of Psoriatic arthritis

  2. As a result of inflammation, the joints involved with arthritis problem and are warm when touched
  3. Pain occurs around the neck as well as the sacrum
  4. The nails become yellow in color and tend to separate from the nail bed.

  1. Homeopathic treatment is anytime safe for treating Psoriatic arthritis, and that has been evidently proved by the researchers. 
  2. Homeopathy medicines have also helped in the improvement in the quality of the lives of people suffering from the psoriatic arthritis. 
  3. The homeopathic medicines have a definite desirability, and they act well on different tissues as well as organs in our body. It is very important that thorough examination is done by the homeopathic doctor so that good results can be attained.

The different ways by which homeopathic medicines can resolve psoriatic arthritis depend mainly on how persistent the disease is, family history, and how extensive it is. These key features help in determining the rate of curability of psoriatic arthritis. Homeopathy medicines act very well on patients not using conventional medicines. Opting for homeopathy at the earliest once the condition is diagnosed is very beneficial as it provides quick relief.

How helpful are homeopathic medicines
The homeopathic medicines that are used to treat psoriatic arthritis are Thuja occidentalis, Rhus toxicodendron, Radium bromatum, Kali carbonicum and Ledum palustre. These medications not only relieve the pain, but are beneficial in reducing the stiffness and the inflammation.

The progress of the disease is also arrested by the use of homeopathic medicines, which in turn improve the quality of life of the patient and they are able to perform their daily activities properly.  The dependency on the pain killers for reducing the pain can be reduced by taking homeopathic medicines.

DNHE, Fellowship in Cardiac Rehabilitation, BHMS
Homeopath,
Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout
Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise.

Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day.

Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily.

Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil.

Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients.

Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day.

Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks.

Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels.

Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body.

Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl
Women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl
