Arsenic is a chemical that occurs in many minerals. It exists in several nontoxic and toxic forms. When exposed to arsenic, its level in the blood is enhanced for a short while. As time passes, it disappears into the tissues due to its affinity towards tissue proteins. Its half-life in blood is 4–6 hours after exposure. Extreme levels indicate significant exposure; however, it can be detected only at once after exposure. In 2-day-old blood specimens, arsenic levels cannot be detected. Some symptoms that follow acute arsenic poisoning are nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, hemolysis, hypotension, headache, diarrhea, mental status changes, fever and seizures.
Patient preparation: do not consume seafood for 48 hours before the collection of the blood sample. Specimen preparation: the area is cleaned carefully before drawing blood from the vein. 4ml (minimum volume 2ml) of blood is drawn from the patient and collected in a sterile test tube. Worksite sample collection is not preferred to prevent false-positive results. The stability of the specimen lasts for 10 days when left at room temperature or refrigerated. However, a frozen or clotted specimen is not acceptable.
Arsenic blood test aids in detecting acute arsenic poisoning.
Inductively coupled plasma/mass spectroscopy is the preferred methodology for arsenic blood test. It is used for monitoring the level of blood arsenic. The normal value for both men and women of all age groups is 0–12 ng/ml. If it is higher than the normal value (>12 ng/ml), it shows a significant exposure.
All age groups
Asthma is a disease that intermittently affects the lungs. When it strikes, the lungs become inflamed and the airways narrow. The sufferer’s chest tightens, breathing becomes difficult or wheezy, and a persistent cough may develop – especially at night.
Asthma can be triggered by allergies or have its onset from a stressful period of life such as an infection, a grief, or even the birth of a baby. Thousands die from asthma each year. It is a serious disease that is increasing in frequency.
For children and adults alike, the struggle to breathe during an asthma attack can be a frightening experience. While conventional medications relieve many of the symptoms of asthma, they cannot cure it. With homoeopathy, it is a different story.

Homeopathy Treatment for Asthma-
When it comes to the treatment of Asthma, Homeopathy is much better at treating asthma. It is in stark contrast to allopathy, where inhalers and steroids are used to suppress inflammation. Homeopathic medicines do not aim at just reducing inflammation. They also intend to cure the basic cause of the recurrent inflammation. This way, not only the symptoms of asthma are treated but the incidence of asthmatic attacks is completely eliminated.
I have had patients coming to me who had been using inhalers or steroids for decades. They could not live without them. With a couple of months of Homeopathic treatment, they are able to live a disease free and medicine-free life.

Let us start with a brief introduction about homeopathy. We know about the regular treatments and drugs that focus on curing the diseases directly. However, homeopathy is an alternative to regular medicine. The science of homeopathy is based on the principle that the substances which induce symptoms in healthy individuals are the ones that would help cure the same symptoms of a person who is sick. This medical science was introduced by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Another principle of homeopathy is that the least amount of medication should be required to evoke the healing response in a body. Normal medications have been well known to cause numerous side effects, but homeopathy, on the other hand, puts the efforts to prevent the formation of any sort of side effect altogether.
This is an immune system-triggered skin disorder. The most common symptoms of this disorder are:
Occurrence of purple-coloured bumps with flat tops takes place on the skin or genitals.
These bumps develop and also spread in a span of a few months.
The rashes are itchy.
Lacy white rashes occur in the mouth.
Scabby blisters and thin white lines appear over these rashes.
The exact reason of this disorder is not known. However, it is believed that this develops when the immune system wrongly attacks the mucous membrane or the skin. This disorder can also be genetic. However, it is not infectious. Also another reason for the cause of this disorder may be due to exposure to certain chemicals which act like allergens such as gold, diuretics, certain dyes, arsenic, antibiotics etc.
