what is depression ?

What is Depression?

While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a low mood – it's a serious condition that affects your physical and mental health.

Types:

-Unipolar and bipolar depression:
If the predominant feature is a depressed mood, it is called unipolar depression. However, if it is characterized by both manic and depressive episodes separated by periods of normal mood, it is referred to as bipolar disorder (previously called manic depression).

Unipolar depression can involve anxiety and other symptoms - but no manic episodes. However, research shows that for around 40 percent of the time, individuals with bipolar disorder are depressed, making the two conditions difficult to distinguish.

-Major depressive disorder with psychotic features:
This condition is characterized by depression accompanied by psychosis. Psychosis can involve delusions - false beliefs and detachment from reality, or hallucinations - sensing things that do not exist.

-Postpartum depression:
Women often experience "baby blues" with a newborn, but postpartum depression - also known as postnatal depression - is more severe.

-Major depressive disorder with seasonal pattern:
Previously called seasonal affective disorder (SAD), this condition is related to the reduced daylight of winter - the depression occurs during this season but lifts for the rest of the year and in response to light therapy.

Causes:

The causes of depression are not fully understood and may not be down to a single source. Depression is likely to be due to a complex combination of factors that include:

-depressed woman
-Depression has a wide range of causes and potential treatments.
-genetics
-biological - changes in neurotransmitter levels
-environmental
-psychological and social (psychosocial)

Some people are at higher risk of depression than others; risk factors include:

-Life events: These include bereavement, divorce, work issues, relationships with friends and family, financial problems, medical concerns, or acute stress.
-Personality: Those with less successful coping strategies, or previous life trauma are more suceptible.
-Genetic factors: Having a first-degree relativeswith depression increases the risk.
-Childhood trauma.
-Some prescription drugs: These include corticosteroids, some beta-blockers, interferon, and other prescription drugs.
-Abuse of recreational drugs: Abuse of alcohol, amphetamines, and other drugs are strongly linked to depression.
-A past head injury.
-Having had one episode of major depression: This increases the risk of a subsequent one.
-Chronic pain syndromes: These and other chronic conditions, such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiovascular disease make depression more likely.

Symptoms:

-Depressed mood
-reduced interest or pleasure in activities previously enjoyed, loss of sexual desire
-unintentional weight loss (without dieting) or low appetite
-insomnia (difficulty sleeping) or hypersomnia (excessive sleeping)
-psychomotor agitation, for example, restlessness, pacing up and down
-delayed psychomotor skills, for example, slowed movement and speech
-fatigue or loss of energy
-feelings of worthlessness or guilt
-impaired ability to think, concentrate, or make decisions
-recurrent thoughts of death or suicide, or attempt at suicide

Diagnosis:

We've become accustomed to doctors using specialized blood tests or other extensive laboratory tests to help them make a conclusive diagnosis. However, most laboratory tests are not very helpful when it comes to diagnosing depression. In fact, talking with the patient may be the most important diagnostic tool the doctor has. The recommendation is that doctors routinely screen all individuals for depression. This screening might occur during a visit for a chronic illness, at an annual wellness visit, or during a pregnancy or postpartum visit.

Role of Homeopathy in Depression:

Homeopathy is a natural and non-toxic remedy for several diseases. The major advantage of homeopathy over other medication is that it does not cause any adverse side effect. It is safe and can be used at all ages without worrying about any detrimental consequence. Homeopathy is known to be very effective in treating depression. Homeopathy medicines are prescribed after a thorough study of the symptoms. Homeopathy first treats the symptoms and then provides relief; for example, the constant mental exhaustion or some unexplained physical pain. It then works on the cause of the disease. In this case, the medicines will affect and treat the hormonal disorders or neurological disorders. Following this, homeopathy medicines will try to prevent the onset of depression in future. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Diet and non diet food:

1. Dark Leafy Greens: A Nutrient-Dense Inflammation Fighter
If you were to choose the healthiest food of all, the most nutrient-dense item available to us to eat, it would be dark, leafy greens, no contest. Spinach. Kale. Swiss chard. Greens are the first of the G-BOMBS (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries, seeds) that Joel Fuhrman, MD, describes in his book The End of Dieting — the foods with the most powerful immune-boosting and anticancer effects.

2. Walnuts: Rich in Mood-Boosting Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Walnuts are one of the richest plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and numerous studies have demonstrated how omega-3 fatty acids support brain function and reduce depression symptoms. A study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry is especially interesting. The lead authors ask the question, Why is the vast part biological research — from genetics to psychopharmacology — concentrated on neurotransmitters, when the mammalian brain is approximately 80 percent fat (lipids), and there is a growing body of research demonstrating the critical role of lipids in brain functioning? What’s more, the shift in the Western diet away from these necessary omega-3 fatty acids over the last century parallels the large rise in psychiatric disorders in that time.

3. Avocado: Its Oleic Acid Gives You Brainpower
I eat a whole one every day in my salad for lunch. Avocados are power foods because, again, they contain healthy fat that your brain needs in order to run smoothly. Three-fourths of the calories of an avocado are from fat, mostly monounsaturated fat, in the form of oleic acid. An average avocado also contains 4 grams of protein, higher than other fruits, and is filled with vitamin K, different kinds of vitamin B (B9, B6, and B5), vitamin C, and vitamin E12. Finally, they are low in sugar and high in dietary fiber, containing about 11 grams each.

4. Berries: Full of Cell-Repairing Antioxidants
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries are some of the highest antioxidant foods available to us. I try to have a variety for breakfast in the morning. In a study published in the Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, patients were treated for two years with antioxidants or placebos. After two years those who were treated with antioxidants had a significantly lower depression score. Antioxidants are like DNA repairmen. They go around fixing your cells and preventing them from getting cancer and other illnesses.

5. Mushrooms: Helpful Tools to Lower Blood Sugar
Here are two good reasons why mushrooms are good for your mental health. First, their chemical properties oppose insulin, which helps lower blood sugar levels, evening out your mood. They also are like a probiotic in that they promote healthy gut bacteria. And since the nerve cells in our gut manufacture 80 to 90 percent of our body’s serotonin — the critical neurotransmitter that keeps us sane — we can’t afford to not pay attention to our intestinal health.

6. Onions: Layered With Cancer-Fighting Allium
You won’t find this item on most lists of mood foods. However, it’s included in Dr. Fuhrman’s G-BOMBS because onions and all allium vegetables (garlic, leeks, chives, shallots, and spring onions) have been associated with a decreased risk of several cancers.

“Eating onions and garlic frequently is associated with a reduced risk of cancers of the digestive tract,” explains Fuhrman. “These vegetables also contain high concentrations of anti-inflammatory flavonoid antioxidants that contribute to their anticancer properties.” Again, if you consider the relationship between your digestive tract and your brain, it is understandable why a food that can prevent cancers of the gut would also benefit your mood.

7. Tomatoes: Packed With Depression Fighters
I try to eat at least six baby tomatoes in my salad each day for lunch because tomatoes contain lots of folic acid and alpha-lipoic acid, both of which are good for fighting depression. According to research published in the Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, many studies show an elevated incidence of folate deficiency in patients with depression. In most of the studies, about one-third of depression patients were deficient in folate.

Folic acid can prevent an excess of homocysteine — which restricts the production of important neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine — from forming in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid keeps coming up as I read more about nutrition and the brain, so I have begun to take it as a supplement, as well. It helps the body convert glucose into energy, and therefore stabilizes mood.

8. Beans: Satisfyingly High in Mood-Stabilizing Fiber
“Beans, beans, good for the heart. The more you eat, the more you ... smile.” They make the G-BOMB list because they can act as anti-diabetes and weight-loss foods. They are good for my mood because my body (and every body) digests them slowly, which stabilizes blood sugar levels. Any food that assists me in evening out my blood sugar levels is my friend. They are the one starch that I allow myself, so on top of a salad, they help mitigate my craving for bread and other processed grains.

9. Seeds: Small but Mighty Sources of Omega-3s
When I’m close to reaching for potato chips or any kind of comfort food, I allow myself a few handfuls of sunflower seeds or any other kind of seed I can find in our kitchen. Seeds are the last food on Fuhrman’s G-BOMBS list.

Flaxseeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds are especially good for your mood because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Fuhrman writes, “Not only do seeds add their own spectrum of unique disease-fighting substances to the dietary landscape, but the fat in seeds increases the absorption of protective nutrients in vegetables eaten at the same meal.”
10. Apples: Ripe With Antioxidants and Fiber
An apple a day could — if eaten with the rest of these foods — keep the psychiatrist away, at least for stretches of time. Like berries, apples are high in antioxidants, which can help to prevent and repair oxidation damage and inflammation on the cellular level. They are also full of soluble fiber, which balances blood sugar swings. A snack I have grown to love is almond butter on apple slices. I get my omega-3 fatty acid along with some fiber.

What Is Sleep Apnea ?

What Is Sleep Apnea ?

What is sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain -- and the rest of the body -- may not get enough oxygen.

Types of Apnea Sleep:

There are two types of sleep apnea:

-Obstructive sleep apnea: The more common of the two forms of apnea, it is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep.
-Central sleep apnea: Unlike OSA, the airway is not blocked, but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe, due to instability in the respiratory control center.

Major Causes for sleep apnea:

-Muscular changes: When people sleep, the muscles that keep the airway open relax, along with the tongue, causing the airway to narrow. Normally, this relaxation does not prevent the flow of air in and out of the lungs, but in sleep apnea, it can.

-Physical obstructions: Additional thickened tissue or excessive fat stores around the airway can restrict the airflow, and any air that squeezes past can cause the loud snoring typically associated with OSA.

-Brain function: In central sleep apnea (CSA), the neurological controls for breathing are faulty, causing the control and rhythm of breathing to malfunction. CSA is usually associated with an underlying medical condition, such as a stroke or heart failure, recent ascent to high altitude, or the use of pain relief medication.

When the airway becomes completely blocked, the snoring stops and there is no breathing for a 10-20 second time period or until the brain senses the apnea and signals the muscles to tighten, returning the airflow. This pause in breathing is known as apnea.

Although this process continues hundreds of times throughout the night, the individual experiencing the apnea is not conscious of the problem.

Symptoms:

*Loud snoring
*Episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep — which would be reported by another person
*Gasping for air during sleep
*Awakening with a dry mouth
*Morning headache
*Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
*Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
*Difficulty paying attention while awake
*Irritability

Diagnosis:

Sleep apnea is diagnosed with a sleep study (nocturnal polysomnography) carried out at an overnight sleep laboratory. This records brain waves, eye and leg movements, oxygen levels, airflow, and heart rhythm during sleep. A physician who specializes in sleep disorders interprets the test.

For some individuals, Home Sleep Apnea Testing (HSAT) can be done in place of the laboratory study. The number of apnea episodes that occur every hour determines sleep apnea severity:

Normal - 0-5 apnea episodes per hour.
Mild sleep apnea - 5-15 apnea episodes per hour.
Moderate sleep apnea - 16-30 apnea episodes per hour.
Severe sleep apnea - 31+ episodes per hour.

Role of homeopathy in sleep apnea:

Homeopathic Treatment of Sleep Apnea-

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering.

The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat sleep apnoea but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for sleep apnoea treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

What Is Influenza ?

What Is Influenza ?

What is influenza?

Influenza is a virus which causes cough or sore throat accompanied by a fever. This virus is spread from person-to-person through saliva and mucus droplets often formed when coughing or sneezing. These droplets can also contaminate surfaces frequently touched, such as doorknobs, doors, and countertops. Sharing items like mobile and laptops can also spread the virus.

Types:

Three types of flu viruses exist
-Influenza 1
-Influenza 2
-Influenza 3

Types A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics that hit the United States and Europe virtually every winter. The type C influenza virus causes mild respiratory illness and is not responsible for outbreaks.

Causes:

Flu viruses travel through the air in droplets when someone with the infection coughs, sneezes or talks. You can inhale the droplets directly, or you can pick up the germs from an object — such as a telephone or computer keyboard — and then transfer them to your eyes, nose or mouth.

People with the virus are likely contagious from the day or so before symptoms first appear until about five days after symptoms begin, though sometimes people are contagious for as long as 10 days after symptoms appear. Children and people with weakened immune systems may be contagious for a slightly longer time.

Influenza viruses are constantly changing, with new strains appearing regularly. If you've had influenza in the past, your body has already made antibodies to fight that particular strain of the virus. If future influenza viruses are similar to those you've encountered before, either by having the disease or by vaccination, those antibodies may prevent infection or lessen its severity.

But antibodies against flu viruses you've encountered in the past can't protect you from new influenza subtypes that can be very different immunologically from what you had before.

Symptoms:

Confusing flu with a bad cold is common. Flu and cold symptoms may both include a runny/blocked nose, sore throat, and cough.

To help you tell them apart, below are some symptoms of flu that are different from a heavy cold:

-high temperature
-cold sweats and shivers
-headache
-aching joints and limbs
-fatigue, feeling exhausted

*Early symptoms of flu:

Often, fatigue is one of the earliest signs of flu and cold. With flu, the fatigue is often more extreme. Other early symptoms can include cough, sore throat, fever, body ache, chills, and gastrointestinal Changes.

Diagnosis:

Since the symptoms of an influenza infection are different from the common cold, the diagnosis can be made fairly quickly. Your doctor will be able to tell that you have the flu if you have at least some or most of these symptoms:
aches and pains everywhere, especially in the back and legs

-bad headache
--burning sensation in the chest
-dry cough at first, then bringing up sputum
-high fever
-nausea and possible vomiting
-sore throat
-runny or stuffy nose

Role Of Homeopathy In Influenza:

It is evident that homeopathic medicines provide very good results in treating as well as preventing the disease called flu or influenza. ... Some of the important flu remedies are Aconite, Belladona, Bryonia, Rhus Toxicodendron, Gelsemium etc. It should be noted that patients should avoid self medication.

Foods to eat:

Food is what gives your body the energy and nutrients it needs to function. Such effects are equally vital when you have the flu. Still, it’s all about eating the right foods for your condition.

Consider eating the following foods when you have the flu.

1. Broth
Whether you prefer chicken, beef, or vegetable, broth is one of the best things you can eat when you have the flu. You can eat it as soon as your symptoms begin and until you have fully recovered.

Broth helps prevent dehydration, and the warm elements can help soothe a sore throat and relieve congestion.

2. Chicken soup
Chicken soup combines the benefits of broth along with additional ingredients. Cut-up chicken provides your body with iron and protein, and you’ll also gain nutrients from carrots, herbs, and celery.

You can eat chicken soup throughout the duration of the flu to help keep you hydrated and satiated; just be sure to watch the salt content.

3. Garlic
While you might think of garlic as a food-flavoring agent, it’s actually been used in alternative medicine for a variety of ailments for centuries. One study of garlic supplements in adults with the flu found enhanced immunity and reduced symptom severity.

You don’t necessarily have to take supplements, though. Eating raw garlic may also be beneficial. Due to the immune-enhancing effects, consider eating garlic at the first signs of the flu.

4. Yogurt
Yogurt with live cultures not only can help soothe a sore throat but can also boost your immune system, according to a study of mice reported in the journal International Immunopharmacology. Yogurt also contains protein.

You can eat yogurt while your throat is sore, but just be sure to choose whole yogurts without any added sugars.

5. Vitamin C–containing fruits
Vitamin C is an important nutrient to help boost your immune system, which is especially important when you’re sick. While supplements can help, your body can absorb nutrients like vitamin C more effectively from the foods you eat.

Consider snacking on vitamin C–rich fruits while you have the flu. Some fruits high in vitamin C include strawberries, tomatoes, and citrus fruits.

6. Leafy greens
Spinach, kale, and other leafy greens can also help boost your immune system when you have the flu. They have both vitamin C and vitamin E, another immune-enhancing nutrient.

Consider combining leafy greens with fruit in a smoothie, or eat them raw with a drizzle of lemon and olive oil. It’s best to eat these immune-boosting foods throughout the duration of your illness.

7. Broccoli
Broccoli is a nutrient powerhouse that can benefit your body when you have the flu. Eating just one serving will provide immune-boosting vitamins C and E, along with calcium and fiber.

Consider eating broccoli when your appetite returns toward the middle or end of the flu. You can also eat broccoli soup; just remember to check the sodium content.

8. Oatmeal
When you’re sick, a hot bowl of oatmeal can be a soothing, nutritious food choice. Oatmeal, like other whole grains, is also a natural source of immune-boosting vitamin E. It also contains polyphenol antioxidants as well as immune-strengthening beta-glucan fiber.

Choose whole oats for the most benefits.

9. Spices
Toward the end of the flu, you might have increased sinus and chest congestion. Certain spices, such as pepper and horseradish, can help break up congestion so you can breathe better. However, avoid spicy foods when you have a sore throat.

What Is Biliary Tract Disorder?

Homeopath, Hyderabad

What Is Biliary Tract Disorder?

Acute calculus cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder that develops in the setting of an obstructed cystic or bile duct. It usually develops after 5 hours of biliary-type pain. The initial inflammation is caused by chemical irritation, and bacterial infection probably is a secondary event.

Types:

malignant neoplasm of the gallbladder
malignant neoplasm of other parts of biliary tract
extrahepatic bile duct
ampulla of Vater
cholelithiasis
cholecystitis
others (excluding postcholecystectomy syndrome), but including
other obstructions of the gallbladder (like strictures)
hydrops, perforation, fistula
cholesterolosis
biliary dyskinesia
K83: other diseases of the biliary tract:
cholangitis (including ascending cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis)
obstruction, perforation, fistula of biliary tract
spasm of sphincter of Oddi
biliary cyst
biliary atresis

Symptoms of possible biliary disease:

Although symptoms may differ among bile duct disorders, symptoms common to many of the disorders include:

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes)
Abdominal pain, especially in the upper right side of the abdomen under the rib cage
Nausea or vomiting
Loss of appetite, which may result in weight loss
Fatigue
Fever or chills
Itching
Light brown urine
Greasy or clay-colored stools

Diagnosis:

The tests performed vary according to the suspected bile duct disorder. However, tests commonly performed to diagnose many bile duct disorders may include:

*Blood tests
*Liver function tests
*Ultrasound
*Endoscopic ultrasound
*Computed tomography (CT) scan
*Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
*Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
*Liver biopsy

What is Asthma?

What is Asthma?

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Asthma can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often changes over time, it's important that you work with your doctor to track your signs and symptoms and adjust treatment as needed.

Main Causes of Asthma:

-Allergies
-Other Co-existing Conditions
-Pollution
-Sport and exercises
-Emotion
-Drugs/Medication
-Occupational Hazards

Sympthoms:

Asthma varies in its severity. Some people experience asthma symptoms continuously, while others experience symptoms only if exposed to triggers. Regardless of the severity, typical asthma symptoms include:
chest tightness
coughing
shortness of breath
wheezing
With more severe asthma, these symptoms may occur at night.
Wheezing is the best-known asthma symptom, but not everyone with asthma wheezes. Some people only have a cough that doesn't seem to go away.

Diagnosis:

Your doctor will review your medical and family history, and he or she will ask you about your symptoms and if something seems to trigger them. Your doctor will examine your nose, listen to your lungs, and may measure your lung function with tests called pulmonary function tests. Your doctor may also suggest blood, sputum, or other tests to eliminate other possible conditions such as throat infection or cystic fibrosis.

An allergist or other doctor can identify your triggers by scratching the skin with tiny amounts of various allergens to see which ones may be triggers in your asthma.

Role of Homeopathy:

Homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently . Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes over reactive in asthma .

Diet and non-Diet:

-Eat to Maintain A Healthy Weight.
-Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
-Avoid Allergy-triggering food.
-Take in Vitamin-D.
-Avoid Sulfites.
It's also possible that eating less salt (sodium) or eating foods rich in oils found in cold-water fish and some nuts and seeds (omega-3 fatty acids) may reduce asthma symptoms. But more research is needed to verify this.

Making informed choices about what foods to eat and what foods to avoid won't cure asthma. But eating a balanced diet and avoiding known trigger foods may improve your symptoms and your overall health.

What is Abdonominal Pain ?

What is Abdonominal Pain ?

What is Abdonominal Pain ?

Abdominal pain is pain that occurs between the chest and pelvic regions. Abdominal pain can be crampy, achy, dull, intermittent or sharp. It's also called a stomachache. Inflammation or diseases that affect the organs in the abdomen can cause abdominal pain.

Causes:

Abdominal pain can be caused by many conditions. However, the main causes are infection, abnormal growths, inflammation, obstruction (blockage), and intestinal disorders.

Infections in the throat, intestines, and blood can cause bacteria to enter your digestive tract, resulting in abdominal pain. These infections may also cause changes in digestion, such as diarrhea or constipation.

Cramps associated with menstruation are also a potential source of lower abdominal pain, but more commonly these are known to cause pelvic pain.

Other common causes of abdominal pain include:

-constipation
-diarrhea
-gastroenteritis (stomach flu)
-acid reflux (when stomach contents leak backward into the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms)
-vomiting
-stress

Diseases that affect the digestive system can also cause chronic abdominal pain. The most common are:

-gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
-irritable bowel syndrome or spastic colon (a disorder that causes abdominal pain, cramping, and changes in bowel movements)
-Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory bowel disease)
-lactose intolerance (the inability to digest lactose, the sugar found in milk and milk products)

Causes of severe abdominal pain include:

-organ rupture or near-rupture (such as a burst appendix, or appendicitis)
-gallbladder stones (known as gallstones)
-kidney stones
-kidney infection

What Is Dengue Fever?

What Is Dengue Fever?

What Is Dengue Fever?

There The dengue virus is spread by mosquitos, mainly the Aedes Aegypti mosquito. These mosquitos are known to bite early in the morning and late in the night. Infections can be acquired by a single bite!

Medical records have shown that the Dengue fever has been around since as early as 1779. However, details on the transmission and the cause of the diseases came to light only in the 20th century.There The dengue virus is spread by mosquitos, mainly the Aedes Aegypti mosquito. These mosquitos are known to bite early in the morning and late in the night. Infections can be acquired by a single bite!

Medical records have shown that the Dengue fever has been around since as early as 1779. However, details on the transmission and the cause of the diseases came to light only in the 20th century.

Types:

Dengue is spread by several species of mosquito of the Aedes type, principally A. aegypti. The virus has five different types; infection with one type usually gives lifelong immunity to that type, but only short-term immunity to the others.

Causes:

Dengue fever is caused by any one of four types of dengue viruses spread by mosquitoes that thrive in and near human lodgings. When a mosquito bites a person infected with a dengue virus, the virus enters the mosquito. When the infected mosquito then bites another person, the virus enters that person's bloodstream.

After you've recovered from dengue fever, you have immunity to the type of virus that infected you ó but not to the other three dengue fever virus types. The risk of developing severe dengue fever, also known as dengue hemorrhagic fever, actually increases if you're infected a second, third or fourth time.

Symptoms:

Symptoms, which usually begin four to six days after infection and last for up to 10 days, may include

-Sudden, high fever
-Severe headaches
-Pain behind the eyes
-Severe joint and muscle pain
-Fatigue
-Nausea
-Vomiting
-Skin rash, which appears two to five days after the onset of fever
-Mild bleeding (such a nose bleed, bleeding gums, or easy bruising)

Sometimes, symptoms are mild and can be mistaken for those of the flu or another viral infection. Younger children and people who have never had the infection before tend to have milder cases than older children and adults. However, serious problems can develop. These include dengue hemorrhagic fever, a rare complication characterized by high fever, damage to lymph and blood vessels, bleeding from the nose and gums, enlargement of the liver, and failure of the circulatory system. The symptoms may progress to massive bleeding, shock, and death. This is called dengue shock syndrome (DSS).
People with weakened immune systems as well as those with a second or subsequent dengue infection are believed to be at greater risk for developing dengue hemorrhagic fever.

Diagnosis:

Doctors can diagnose dengue infection with a blood test to check for the virus or antibodies to it. If you become sick after traveling to a tropical area, let your doctor know. This will allow your doctor to evaluate the possibility that your symptoms were caused by a dengue infection.

Role of Homeopathy in Dengue Fever:

The Homeopathic medicines are time tested and have been in use for almost two centuries. They have been used all over the world and have shown very good results. The reason for this almost miraculous result is that Homeopathy does not try to tame individual viruses. It just strengthens the bodyís immunity and allows it to form antibodies against the offending antigens. These offending antigens may be viruses or bacteria; it does not matter. Nature has provided a very robust immune system to humans. This immune system is capable of dealing with such threats. At times, it just needs a little gentle support and this is all that is needed to help the immunity do the job it is meant for.

Diet and non diet:

PAtient suffering from dengue needs to have sufficient intake of nutrients and healthy diet to overcome the loss caused by the dengue. Diet for dengue should include the following: Easily digestible food e.g boiled food, green vegetables, banana, apple, soups, porridge, and herbal tea

What is Fibrosis   ?

What is Fibrosis?

Fibrosis is the accumulation of collagen fibers in the liver. These accumulations are caused by chronic liver damage.

What are the Stages of Fibrosis?

Progression from one stage of fibrosis to the next is characterized by an increase in collagen deposits. As fibrosis grows, these deposits spread and intrude into the liver tissue. Eventually the fiber deposits will interconnect. Linked deposits cause two major issues:

1.Stiffening of the liver structure.
2.Restriction of blood flow through the liver.

Causes of fibrosis :

Viral infection
Alcohol
Obesity
Autoimmune disorders
Normally, the liver heals from damage much like the development of a scab on a surface wound. But, over time, collagen fibers deposit faster than they can be processed and removed. That is when liver fibrosis occurs.

Liver fibrosis is not a disease in itself. It is a progressive structural change in the liver. Fibrosis can be seen and measured in a tissue sample taken by biopsy and viewed under a microscope.

Symptoms of fibrosis :

Signs and symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis may include:

Shortness of breath (dyspnea)
A dry cough
Fatigue
Unexplained weight loss
Aching muscles and joints
Widening and rounding of the tips of the fingers or toes (clubbing)

Diagnosing pulmonary fibrosis :

It’s important to identify the cause of your symptoms if possible, and what type of pulmonary fibrosis you have, as it will influence your treatment.

The doctor will ask questions about your medical and work history, listen to your chest, and order some blood tests to rule out possible known causes.

Further tests used to diagnose pulmonary fibrosis are described below - you might not need to have all of them. Your consultant will assess this when they see you.

X-rays and scans :

You will have a chest X-ray. If your doctor thinks you might have pulmonary fibrosis, this will be followed by a CT (computed tomography) scan, which uses X-rays to produce a very detailed image of your lungs. For some types of pulmonary fibrosis, the results from the scan can be very clear.

On a CT scan, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) often shows up as a distinctive pattern on the lungs. You might hear your doctor call this ‘honeycomb’ lung, as the image shows lots of empty pockets or bubbles appearing where more solid-looking lung tissue would normally appear.

Breathing tests :

These are also known as lung function tests. There are different types, but most involve breathing into a machine through a mouthpiece or tube. The equipment measures how well you can breathe in or out.

Blood tests :

Doctors may also order blood tests to evaluate your liver and kidney function, and to test for and rule out other conditions.

Role of homeopathy for fibrosis :

Homeopathic treatment for fibrosis can also aid in achieving significant reduction in dependence on bronchodilators and steroid medications.
Every medicine prescribed in homeopathic treatment for fibrosis can relieve patients from their distressing symptoms without the fear of producing any adverse reactions or side effects. Treatment is gentle, natural and holistic.
Different manifestations of the disease are treated with different homeopathic medicines depending on which one matches the most. 

Food to eat : 

Choose high-fat ground beef.
Opt for whole milk instead of skim.
Sprinkle bacon and cheese on salad, into eggs, and other prepared dishes.
Make smoothies packed with peanut butter, whole milk, and bananas.
Fry eggs with extra butter.
Spread an extra layer of mayonnaise on sandwiches.
Eat pasta with olive oil and freshly-grated parmesan cheese, with Alfredo sauce, or with added bacon.
Snack on high-quality dark chocolate.

What is Chlamydia ?

What is Chlamydia ?
  
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases . This infection is easily spread because it often causes no symptoms and may be unknowingly passed to sexual partners. In fact, about 75% of infections in women and 50% in men are without symptoms.

Causes of chlamyadia :

Chlamydia may be transmitted by unprotected oral, anal, or vaginal sex with a person.

Genital contact can also pass on chlamydia

As chlamydial infection presents no symptoms in at least 70 percent of carriers, an infected person may pass it on to their sexual partner without knowing.

contact with a toilet seat that has been used by an infected person

sharing a sauna with infected people

sharing a swimming pool with infected people

touching a surface that an infected person had previously touched or coughed/sneezed on

standing close to an infected person, inhaling the air after they have coughed or sneezed

sharing an office with an infected colleague

An infected mother can pass the infection on to her baby during childbirth.
 
Sometimes, the infection leads to complications for the infant, such as pneumonia.

 If a mother has a chlamydia infection during pregnancy, she will require a test 3 to 4 weeks after treatment to ensure the infection has not returned.

Chlamydia symptoms in women :

Abnormal vaginal discharge that may have an odor
Bleeding between periods
Painful periods
Abdominal pain with fever
Pain when having sex
Itching or burning in or around the vagina
Pain when urinating

Chlamydia symptoms in men :

Small amounts of clear or cloudy discharge from the tip of the penis
Painful urination
Burning and itching around the opening of the penis
Pain and swelling around the testicles

Diagnosis :

Diagnosing chlamydia may include a physical exam to look for the presence of physical symptoms such as discharge, and will also include either a swab sample from the penis, cervix, urethra, throat, or rectum, or a urine sample.

Prevention 

condoms
using a dental dam during oral sex
regular screening
To avoid spreading chlamydia, individuals should avoid sexual activity until treatment is complete. If a one-time dose of antibiotics is prescribed, it is recommended that people avoid sex until 7 to 10 days after treatment.

Role of Homeopathy for chlamydia :

Homeopathy is a popular system of medicine which follows a holistic approach and it has very little or zero side effects. Homeopathy does not aim to solely focus on removal of symptoms, but it addresses the underlying cause of the symptom as well as its individual susceptibility. The infections caused by Chlamydia can be treated by the homeopathic medicines such as-

Cannabis sativa
Belladonna
Hydrastis
Helonias
Kreosotum
Thuja
Platina
Medorrhinum
You should always remember that the treatment of Chlamydia should be on the basis of individual assessment taking into account the various causes, sensations and manifestation of pain. The treatment will vary from person to person. It is highly recommended that your homeopathic doctor be consulted after you get proper screening tests done and detect it early enough if harmful consequences at a later stage are to be avoided. Chlamydia is capable of spreading to the other parts of your body and can lead to serious health problems such as infertility and pelvic disorders and it is important to arrest the problem before that.

DIET FOR CHLAMYDIA :

Early detection & treatment is extremely important to prevent long term complications of Chlamydia. There is no food that can prevent Chlamydia, but following certain food restrictions can help fight the infection better.

Recommended Foods:

Include more green leafy vegetables like spinach, coriander, freshly prepared wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa grass etc…
Increasing intake of alkaline food is highly beneficial.
Eat food rich in dietary fibers such as whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds.
Foods for Moderate Consumption:

Reduce your intake of non-vegetarian food as these are acidic in nature – food such as fish, chicken, red meat, full fat dairy products, cheese, butter, ghee, preserved/canned food.

Foods to Avoid:

Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and other abusive substances that may compromise your immunity.
Fermented food, acidic, salty and canned food- like pickles, ketchup, mayonnaise.
Avoid high protein food like – meat, eggs, fish, chicken, black gram, pulses etc.
Avoid drinking water immediately after eating food.
