Treatment of Cerebral Ischaemia and Cerebral Congestion With Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Treatment of Cerebral Ischaemia and Cerebral Congestion With Homeopathy

Cerebral ischaemia or brain ischemia is a medical condition that restricts the flow of blood to the brain, resulting in an unmet metabolic demand. This leads to limited oxygen supply in the brain, which could result in death of brain tissues, cerebral infarction or an ischemic stroke. Thus, a cardiorespiratory arrest, a stroke, and irreversible brain damage are few possible consequences of cerebral ischaemia.

People with compressed blood vessels, low blood pressure, congenital heart defects or sickle cell anaemia have a high risk of developing cerebral ischaemia, since compressed blood vessels or very low pressure can lead to restricted blood flow. Also, sickle-shaped cells have a greater tendency to clot, causing obstructed blood flow.

Patients with cerebral ischaemia experience a host of symptoms, such as weakness in the body, problems in coordination and movement, vision and speech impairment and unconsciousness.

Cerebral congestion, on the other hand, refers to excessive quantity of blood in the brain vessels, causing pressure on the cerebral substance. Cerebral congestion is of two types. It is termed as active when there is too much arterial blood flow and passive when there is undue quantity of venous blood in the veins of the brain. Both conditions cause symptoms, such as severe headache, insomnia, irritability and unconsciousness. The patient gets little sleep and is disturbed, often followed by dreams. When awake, the patient’s mental activity in the brain is very high.

Homeopathy is now a well-established school of medicine backed with years of research and practice. Gone are the days when homeopathy was considered no more than an extension of herbal home remedies. Homeopathic laboratories around the world produce large number of medicines covering almost all ailments. The benefits of homeopathic treatment are now well established due to its holistic approach and minimal side effects. Homeopathy is undoubtedly a ray of hope for patients with cerebral ischaemia and cerebral congestion, as it delivers a comprehensive treatment plan designed to target the signs and symptoms of the disease and address its non-occurrence.

The medications deal with mild to severe symptoms, including inflammation of the brain, headache, vomiting, insomnia, stroke/convulsions and seizures. The stramonium drug, for example, deals with seizures. Belladonna is an effective remedy for sharp shooting headaches, a common symptom of cerebral congestion. Ferrum is believed to be a valuable remedy for brain ischaemia. Few drugs deal with the symptoms of both ischaemia and congestion—nux is a suitable drug for the treatment of ischaemia as well as for passive cerebral congestion. Similarly, phosphorus can be used to treat brain ischaemia and congestion. Zincum metallicum is a highly recommended drug for chronic cases of ischaemia.

The treatment is comprehensive and long term and shows substantive results. Regular follow-ups and consultation with a homeopath specialist is the key to an effective treatment.

Adults With Brain Injury - Know How Occupational Therapy Can Help You!

Adults With Brain Injury - Know How Occupational Therapy Can Help You!

Brain injury can happen as a result of trauma, infection or degeneration with old age. Whatever be the reason, injury on the head can result into brain dysfunction and should be given required medical diagnosis. In these cases, occupational therapy can be a major help.

It helps in improving health, providing rehabilitation and educational service to enable people to participate in things they are interested in and manage their daily activities. Occupational therapy can be used to manage issues relating to memory, organization and attention span, behavior and emotion control, safety issues and issues which contribute to society. Depending on expectations, different therapies can be sought. Read on to know a little more about how occupational therapy can help adults with brain injury.

  1. The person's skills and what they want to do are to be assessed and accordingly a daily plan that can be easily followed is made. Where possible, use technology like smart phone or voice recorder to manage this plan. The therapist can train the person to use these tools, review progress and make changes as necessary.
  2. The therapist will also teach ways to do things on their own like cooking and small shopping, so they become independent and are therefore less frustrated.
  3. Patients in need of anger management, the therapist will help them to identify what induces anger or frustration and support in managing those before it turns into actual anger. This will help the person relax and be more positive.
  4. This could also be done using small roleplays, wherein they are taught ways to respond and be more relaxed and calm.
  5. If you are keen on participating in social events or volunteering opportunities, then the therapist can recommend options for you based on your areas of interest. The therapist can also work with the identified organization (school, NGO, or workplace) to inform them of the kind of support required by you. Work behavior and social behavior can be taught to help the affected person succeed.
  6. If the affected person happens to be alone, then they need to be assessed for ability to judge (e.g., self-awareness, impulsivity, and reliability), even while doing daily activities like bathing and dressing. Driving is permissible only if cleared for it by the therapist.
  7. The home needs to be assessed for safety. You may have to make some safety modifications, for instance replace power tools with hand tools. Else, shared housing options, where independence and having someone close by is possible, should be evaluated.

So, with a brain injury, not all is lost. Occupational Therapy can definitely help restore function to a large extent, so use it to reap maximum benefits. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Disc prolapse at age of 13 years is not common, though it still may occur. Treatment is analgesics, back care, rest and physiotherapy. However, the child needs to be examined before I can suggest precise treatment

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

गर्भाशय महिलाओं का एक विशिष्ट अंग है जिसमें कई तरह की नियमित प्रक्रियाएं चलती रहती हैं. यदि ठीक से इसकी देखभाल या रखरखाव नहीं किया जाए तो इसके बेहद गंभीर परिणाम हो सकते हैं. इसलिए ये आवश्यक है कि इस विषय में बात किया जाए और जागरूकता फैलाया जाए. यदि हमें गर्भाशय के सफाई के प्रति जागरूक होना है तो पहले हमें ये जानना होगा कि गर्भाशय क्या है? और कैसे काम करता है?
 

क्या है गर्भाशय?
गर्भाशय स्त्री जननांग है. यह 7.5 सेमी लम्बी, 5 सेमी चौड़ी तथा इसकी दीवार 2.5 सेमी मोटी होती है. इसका वजन लगभग 35 ग्राम तथा इसकी आकृति नाशपाती के आकार के जैसी होती है. जिसका चौड़ा भाग ऊपर फंडस तथा पतला भाग नीचे इस्थमस कहलाता है. महिलाओं में यह मूत्र की थैली और मलाशय के बीच में होती है तथा गर्भाशय का झुकाव आगे की ओर होने पर उसे एन्टीवर्टेड कहते है अथवा पीछे की तरफ होने पर रीट्रोवर्टेड कहते है. गर्भाशय के झुकाव से बच्चे के जन्म पर कोई प्रभाव नहीं पड़ता है. गर्भाशय का ऊपरी चौड़ा भाग बाडी तथा निचला भाग तंग भाग गर्दन या इस्थमस कहलाता है. इस्थमस नीचे योनि में जाकर खुलता है. इस क्षेत्र को औस कहते है. यह 1.5 से 2.5 सेमी बड़ा तथा ठोस मांसपेशियों से बना होता है. गर्भावस्था के विकास गर्भाशय का आकार बढ़कर स्त्री की पसलियों तक पहुंच जाता है. साथ ही गर्भाशय की दीवारे पतली हो जाती है.
 

कैसे होती है गरर्भाशय कि सफाई?
डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज (डी एंड सी) एक सर्जिकल प्रक्रिया है जिसमें गर्भाशय ग्रीवा (गर्भाशय का निचला, संकीर्ण हिस्सा) को डाएलेट (फैलाते) करते हैं ताकि गर्भाशय की परत को क्युरेट के द्वारा क्यूरेटेज (खुरच कर निकालना) किया जा सके जिससे असामान्य ऊतकों को निकाला जा सके. प्रत्येक मासिक चक्र के साथ, एंडोमेट्रियम जो गर्भाशय की लाइनिंग है, भ्रूण का पोषण करने के लिए तैयार होती है. एस्ट्रोजन और प्रोजेस्टेरोन के बढ़ते स्तर इसकी इस लाइनिंग को मोटाई देने में मदद करते हैं. यदि निषेचित अंडे का आरोपण नहीं होता है, तो एंडोमेट्रियम लाइनिंग टूट जाती है. यह लाइनिंग योनि और गर्भाशय ग्रीवा से रक्त और म्यूकस के साथ मिलकर, मासिक की ब्लीडिंग के साथ निकाल दी जाती है. पोलिप, बॉडी सेल्स की असामान्य ग्रोथ को कहते हैं. जब पोलिप गर्भाशय की भीतरी दीवार से जुड़ा होता है तो, यह गर्भाशय के पॉलीव्स / यूट्रिन पोलिप या एंडोमेट्रियल पोलिप कहलाता है. यह गर्भाशय की कैविटी में लटकता है.
 

पोलिप कैसे हटाते हैं?
गर्भाशय के अस्तर में कोशिकाओं के अधिक बढ़ जाने पर यह पोलिप बनते हैं. यूट्रिन पोलिप का आकार एक तिल के दाने से छोटा से लाकर गोल्फ बॉल जितना बड़ा हो सकता है. पोलिप एक बड़े आधार या पतले तने से गर्भाशय की दीवार से जुड़े रहते हैं. बड़े पोलिप को हटाने के लिए बहुत बार डीएनसी के लिए कहा जाता है. कई बार गर्भाशय से एबनार्मल ब्लीडिंग होने लगती है. ऐसा गर्भाशय के अंदर पोलिप होने से, लाइनिंग बढ़ जाने, पूरी तरह से गर्भपात नहीं होने या डिलीवरी के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई नहीं होने से हो सकता है. स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ को दिखाने पर वे पेल्विक की जांच के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई या डी एंड सी के लिए कह सकती हैं. डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज को सफाई के लिए, गर्भपात के लिए, पीरियड के असामान्य होने पर, या पूरे गर्भपात नहीं होने पर किया जाता है.
 

डी एंड सी इस प्रक्रिया के लिए:

  • आपको अस्पताल द्वारा दिया गया कपड़ा पहनने को दिया जायेगा. आपको मूत्राशय को खाली करने का निर्देश दिया जाएगा. आपको ऑपरेटिंग टेबल पर पोजीशन किया जाएगा. आपके बांह या हाथ में एक अंतःशिरा (IV) लाइन शुरू हो सकती है. एक मूत्र कैथेटर डाला जा सकता है. योनि की दीवारों को फैलाने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को देखने के लिए अपनी योनि में एक स्पेकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट डाला जाएगा.
  • सर्विक्स को एंटीसेप्टिक से साफ़ किया जाएगा. एनेस्थीसिया दिया जाएगा. टेनाकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट से गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को स्थिर रखने के लिए किया जा सकता है. गर्भाशय की लंबाई निर्धारित करने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा के अंदर यूटेरिन साउंड डाला जा सकता है. सर्विक्स को पतली रोड्स से फैलया जाएगा.
  • क्यूरेट से गर्भाशय साफ़ किया जाएगा. प्रक्रिया के बाद कुछ दिनों तक ब्लीडिंग होना सामान्य है. डी एंड सी के बाद कुछ दिनों तक आपको ऐंठन का अनुभव हो सकता है. आपको निर्देश दिया जा सकता है कि डी एंड सी के दो से तीन सप्ताह बाद तक, आप डूश, टैम्पोन का इस्तेमाल न करें, सेक्स नहीं करें और योनि में कुछ न डालें, या जब तक ब्लीडिंग नहीं रुक जाए. 1-2 सप्ताह बाद तक क्रेम्पिंग हो सकती है. अगला पीरियड जल्दी या देर से आ सकता है. ऐंठन या पीड़ा के लिए एक दर्द निवारक के रूप में अपने चिकित्सक द्वारा सिफारिश की दवा ही लें. एस्पिरिन या कुछ अन्य दर्द नाशक दवाओं से रक्तस्राव की संभावना बढ़ सकती है.

Hello with the present complaints you have surgery is the best option for you, there are no medications that can cure the condition, medicine and physiotherapy can stop the progression of the disease they cannot cure the condition, and the damage increases with time which is irreversible so my advice is to get operated as soon as possible. Just leave a positive comment if useful.

How Can You Prevent Breast Cancer?

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
How Can You Prevent Breast Cancer?

If you are concerned about breast cancer, you should know about the steps you can take to prevent the condition. Breast cancer is a type of cancer developing from the breast tissue. Symptoms such as a lump in the breast, fluid flowing from the nipple, changes in the shape of the breast and occurrence of red scaly patches on the breast denote breast cancer.

You need to make certain lifestyle changes in order to prevent breast cancer. The ways you should adopt include the following:

  1. Limit your alcohol intake: The more you consume alcohol, the more you put yourself at the risk of getting breast cancer. It is recommended for you not to drink more than one drink per day. Small amounts of alcohol increase the risk of breast cancer as well.

  2. Abstain from smoking: There is a direct link between tobacco smoking and breast cancer, and the risk is even more in premenopausal women. You should quit smoking to reduce the risk of breast cancer along with many other conditions, which can develop because of the ill-effects of smoking.

  3. Control your weight: Obese women are more prone to breast cancer when compared with women with a healthy weight. This is especially true when obesity occurs at a later stage in life, after menopause.

  4. Keep physically active: Regular physical activity is essential for you to maintain a healthy weight, which is important for preventing breast cancer. 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercises or 75 minutes of vigorous exercises are recommended along with strength training.

  5. Breastfeed: Breastfeeding plays an important role in preventing breast cancer. The more you breastfeed your baby, the more protected you are from breast cancer.

  6. Limit the dosage and duration of hormone therapy: If you undertake combination hormone therapy for more than three to five years, you are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. In case you are taking hormone therapy for menopausal symptoms, you should talk to your doctor about alternative options such as non-hormonal therapy and medications. If you still require hormonal therapy, you must use the lowest dose that will be effective.

  7. Avoid exposure to radiation and pollution: Certain medical imaging procedures like computerized tomography involves radiation of high doses. There is a link between breast cancer and radiation exposure. Thus, you should abstain from getting exposed to radiation and avoid taking such tests if it is not very urgent.

Maintaining a healthy diet also helps in reducing your risk of developing breast cancer. You should include food items which are plant based in your regular diet, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and legumes. Also, consume healthy fats such as olive oil instead of red meat and butter. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an oncologist.
