What is Fitness?

What is Fitness?

Your overall level of fitness s primarily a reflection of the efficiency of your heart, lungs, and muscles. That  efficiency in turn is dependent on how regularly you take part in some form of sustained, vigorous physical exercise. In order to be physically fit, you do not need to be able to run marathons you should simply do some type moderate exercise at least three or four times a week.

Components of Fitness

Physical fitness is made up of three distinct elements: strength, flexibility, and endurance. Each type of sport or physical activity can be these three elements required to perform it. All three fitness components are needed to some extent in every sport. However, in gymnastics, for instance, a high level of flexibility is more important than endurance, as each gym exercise routine only lasts a minute or so, while in long distance running, endurance is by far the most important factor.

Strength

At least one quarter, or even as much as one half, of your body weight is made up of muscle tissue. This muscle tissue provides you with your strength, which is simply the ability to exert enough muscular force to push, pull, lift, or carry a heavy load. Your body contains around 400 muscles, which are attached to your skeleton by tendons. All your body’s movements are controlled by contracting or relaxing specific groups muscles.

Flexibility

Flexibility is your ability to bend, stretch, or twist through a full range of movements. A good level flexibility is dependent on your joints, muscles, and tendons being able to move easily. It is important in all sports and physical activities, but particularly those where you need to be agile, such as skiing, gymnastics, and judo. Women in their late teens are generally the most flexible group of people. Being flexible decreases your risk of suffering a sprain or strain, because supple, elastic tissues are better able to absorb the shock of sudden or rapid movements. People with tight back and leg muscles are more likely to suffer from back pain and stiffness after exertion.

Endurance

Endurance is the ability to exercise at a steady rate, without a rest, for a long period of time. It is dependent on the efficiency and performance of your heart, lungs, and muscles. Low endurance may result in muscle fatigue and poor coordination. To improve your overall endurance you need to exercise vigorously for a period of at least 20 minutes, three times a week.

There is no perfect exercise, but any energetic activity will improve your level of fitness. To succeed in your quest for health you must find a sport that you enjoy, otherwise you are unlikely to exercise enough. Ideally this activity should enhance your strength, your flexibility, and your endurance.

Health Tips for Children

With pediatric health problems on a rise, it's important you keep a few crucial tips to maintain your child's health. With the help of these tips, you can inculcate crucial habits in your child's lifestyle.
Advertisement

In today's times, health problems like diabetes, cholesterol, and high blood pressure are not restricted to adults, but have become a common phenomenon among children too. The main culprit for this can be attributed to their inclination towards fast food and lack of activity. Kids love to gorge on fast foods like burgers, pizzas, etc., and with the introduction of video games and a host of interesting programs on television, they are more than happy to watch television instead of playing outdoor games.

Due to this lack of activity and no control on the food they eat, many children suffer from the problem of obesity at a very young age, which further leads to other serious diseases or illnesses. Hence, it becomes the responsibility of the parents to teach children important ways to remain healthy.

Healthy Tips for Your Children

The three most important factors that are necessary for the kids to remain healthy include:

  • A healthy diet
  • Regular exercise
  • Proper rest


Habits we learn during our childhood stay with us throughout our life; it is thus necessary that parents teach these three factors to children as soon as possible. However, you do not need to force them to learn these habits; set an example for them by following these things yourself. Let us look at each factor in detail.

Nutrition for a Healthy Diet
At a very young age itself, teach the kids to eat all types of food, like fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, dairy products, etc. Their meals should be divided into five or six small meals throughout the day, rather than just three meals. Cultivate the habit of eating breakfast as it is said to be the most important meal of the day. Eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast helps their body to develop energy for the physical as well mental activities of the day.

Parents should also see to it that children have a healthy lunch while they are at school. Though there are many schools which provide lunch, its nutritious value is a topic of controversy. Hence, it will be best to pack them foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. Other than lunch, also make sure that you provide them with a healthy after school snack, as this is a time where they are likely to indulge in junk food. Dried and fresh fruits, yogurt, cereal bars, etc., are good choices for a healthy snack. Next comes the dinner, or evening meal, which should be converted to time spent with the family. Eating together at least once in a day will help the parents interact with their children and also to keep control on their eating habits. Talking to them about the nutritional facts of healthy foods is a good way of instilling healthy food habits in children. Though too much of junk food does harm a child's body, there is no need to restrict it completely.

Fitness and Exercise
Indulging in daily outdoor games with friends is more than enough physical exercise for children. Parents should see to it that their kids do not spend their entire time in front of the television or playing video games. They should encourage them to take part in sports and other physical activities like dancing, etc., so that their body gets the required exercise. Arranging games for them and their friends regularly at home, in which they have to run around and play, is a good idea. On weekends, take them out walking, jogging, swimming, or cycling, at least for an hour, and you'll be preventing childhood obesity.

Health and Proper Rest
Rest and sleep are two important factors to keep children healthy. Children require 9-13 hours of sleep, depending on their age group. Lack of sleep in children can cause problems like lack of attention at school, feeling sleepy during the day, poor academic performance, etc. Hence, parents must ensure that their children receive sufficient sleep.

Other than these tips, it is important to teach kids proper hygiene rules like regular washing of hands, brushing their teeth, etc., so that they are not affected by infections. Explain the importance of eating the right food and exercising to your kids. Remember, by doing this you are not only providing them a hale and hearty childhood, but also ensuring a healthy future.

Menorrhagia - 6 Homeopathy Remedies for Treating it!

Excessive release or flow of blood during the menstrual cycle or periods is referred to as menorrhagia. It is an abnormally long-lasting and heavy menstrual period at regular intervals. It usually occurs in premenopausal women, affecting their overall health, decreasing the quality of life, weakness and many interruptions in their lifestyle.

As a treatment for menorrhagia, homeopathy has shown proven results. The medicines maintain the emotional, mental, physiological and immune reactions of the person to guarantee long lasting and permanent help. The medicines will necessarily have to be prescribed by a doctor.

A few women have almost no issue with their menstrual cycles, however, others suffer every month. A variety of distressing side effects may occur with premenstrual women. These include irritation, mood swings, headaches, bloating, excessive urination, and soreness of the breasts. Periods can be irregular and disturbed, with cramping, heavy flow, anxiety and discomfort. Here are a few homeopathic treatments for this problem:

  1. Belladonna: It is one of the haemorrhagic cures. The flow is mostly dark red and hot and once in a while it comes as decayed blood. The related side effect is pain in the back. It is a decent solution for the initial phases of swelling. The blood is constantly overflowing.
  2. Crocus sativus: This cure is generally used by a large number of homeopathic doctors. It is one of the most effective cures in stopping excessive bleeding during the periods. The bleeding is extremely thick at times. The blood flow consists of threads or strings and is usually very dark.
  3. Erigeron: During the menstrual cycle, since the bleeding is dark and profuse, an important side effect, which is very common, is burning urine and irritation in the rectum. This is one of the symptoms that is particularly cured by this medicine.
  4. Ferrum met: Ferrum met is one of the cures that prevents haemorrhaging. Women who are having long and heavy periods that tend to come early are better off with this cure. The people who are weak and pale are the appropriate individuals for this cure.
  5. Cyclamen: It generally plays a very important part in female reproductive organs and helps in curing numerous infections that happen in the female reproductive system. During periods, the women have extreme pain that feels like they are in labour and the blood flow is thickened. After periods, they have swelling and tenderness in their breasts and sometimes also experience a milky secretion as well.
  6. Crotalus horridus: Delayed periods and the blood is usually a diluted, thin and light liquid. This kind of blood flow can also cause infections. This homeopathic medicine tends to treat the same and maintain a normal flow and colour of the blood.

Blood-sugar control

Complications of diabetes, such as cardiovascular problems, poor vision, kidney disease, and nerve damage, were once thought to be inevitable no matter how hard you tried to manage erratic swings in blood sugar the core problem of diabetes. But that thinking is no longer acceptable. Several major studies from around the world have shown that if you bring blood sugar into a normal range with drugs, insulin,  diet  exercise, or some combination of these ,you can cut your risk of complication by anywhere from one  third to three quarters. If you’re diagnosed before you develop complications’ it’s possible

To sidestep diabetes-related health problems completely sometime with lifestyle changes alone. Meanwhile, technoleogy for monitoring your own blood sugar continues to improve and  is now remarkably convenient and relatively pain-free.

Lifestyle

Diet and exercise are powerful tools for lowering blood sugar so powerful, in fact, insulin. And using these “power” tools is easier than ever before. Recent research into how foods affect blood sugar has shown that your diet need not be as restrictive as experts once believed. It can include virtually any food you like, as long as you watch your calorie intake. On the exercise side, it turns out that your workouts don’t have to be as vigorous as once thought. Even short health.

Drugs

Earlier generations of diabetes medications have been bolstered by a growing roster of newer drugs that tackle the disease in a variety of ways. In many cases, you can combine these drugs to take advantage of their different modes of operation. The fact that there are also several varieties of insulin (which regulates the body’s use of blood sugar) gives you more flexibility in finding a regimen that matches your lifestyle.

Do you Have Diabetes?

Its human nature not to look for problems if they haven’t already found you which explains why between one third and one half of people with diabetes don’t know they have it.

According to the American College of Endocrinology, half of all people who finally go to their doctor to be tested have already developed some degree of complications. How can you recognize when diabetes is at your door? There are three fundamental ways.

Figure your risk factors.

The first thing to look at is whether any element of your background makes you more likely than the general population to develop diabetes.  Among the most important factors to evaluate are:

 

Family history

If anyone in your immediate family a parent, sibling, or grandparent has had diabetes, you have a higher chance of developing the disease yourself. The extent of the risk depends on the type of diabetes and how closely related you are to the person who has it (the risk is highest among identical twins).

Ethnic group

The most common type of diabetes (called type 2) is most prevalent in African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native  Americans, and Asian Americans. The other major form is most prevalent in Caucasians, especially those with backgrounds in northern European regions, such as Scandinavia.

Weight

Being overweight significantly raises your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. That makes it one of the most important risk factors because it’s one you can control.

Age

Type 1 usually occurs in children or teens (it’s rarely diagnosed after age 30). Type 2 generally develops after age 40, although it’s becoming more common in younger people.

Keep a sharp eye for symptoms

While the signs of diabetes can be subtle at first, they’re not impossible to pick up on. The longer diabetes progressed, the more likely symptoms are to become obvious and troublesome. The hallmarks of diabetes are:

  • Excessive thirst

 

  • Increased appetite

 

  • Frequent urination

 

  • Fatigue

 

  • Blurred vision

 

  • Frequent infections

 

  • Tingling in your hands and feet

 

  • Sexual dysfunction

 

Get tested

Tests for diabetes are easy they involve nothing more painful than a finger prick to draw a drop of your blood (although some tests require that you prepare by fasting ahead of time). It’s best to see a doctor for a full evaluation if your want to nail down your diagnosis: blood screenings at health fairs or malls provide less accurate results than those your doctor can give you. If your results fall short of a diagnosis but your background suggest you’re at risk, schedule a return visit at least every year to make sure nothing’ changed.

What you can expect

When you’re diagnosed with diabetes, your doctor will need to cover a lot ground in a short time. In fact. In fact, he’ll want to know virtually everything about you: eating patterns, weight history, blood pressure, medications you’re taking, whether you smoke or drink, how satisfying you find sex, how many kids you’ve had, any family history of heart disease, and any treatment you’ve received for other problems, including endocrine and eating disorders. If you’re a woman, you’ll woman, you’ll even be asked about your children’s development. Your doctor isn’t prying. All of this information has a bearing on your condition and the management program you’ll eventually follow.

Your doctor will also want to do a thorough physical exam, including a cardiac workup that may involve an electrocardiogram (which records the heart’s electrical activity) and a careful look at your mouth, feet, eye, abdomen, skin, and thyroid gland. You’ll have a battery of tests, including a blood-lipid test for cholesterol (among other things) and at least two different blood-sugar tests one that shows what your blood sugar is right now and the other, what it has averaged for the past two to three month.

Where Do you Stand?

Your doctor looks at a lot of variables when deciding how to treat your diabetes, but he’ll  pay special attention to one in particular: your blood-sugar readings. If your blood sugar is sky-high in your initial assessment, you may go straight to drug and insulin therapy until your numbers are brought down. If you have type 2 diabetes, once your blood sugar has stabilized and you begin making lifestyle changes, you may be able to go off insulin and other medications.

One of the numbers your doctor will zero in on is your fasting blood-glucose level, a key test of blood sugar. While other tests also need to be considered and each case must be managed individually, you can roughly anticipate your options depending on what your fasting blood-glucose levels are (numbers are expressed as milligrams per deciliter). As a general guideline:

  • If fasting blood glucose is between 110 mg/dl and 125 mg/dl, you have prediabetes (also known as impaired glucose tolerance), a condition in which elevated blood sugar levels significantly raise the risk of developing diabetes. You’ll be advised to start eating a healthier diet and to get more exercise, but you’re unlikely to get a prescription for drugs or insulin.

 

  • If fasting blood glucose is 126 mg/dl to around 140 or 150 mg/dl. You have full-blown diabetes, but you’ll probably still be able to control your blood sugar with diet and exercise, depending on your condition and results from other tests.

 

  • Once fasting blood glucose exceeds 150 mg/dl and ranges to 200 mg/dl, it’s likely you’ll need drugs in addition to diet and exercise. You may also need occasional doses of insulin for better control at certain times of the day (after meals, for example) when blood sugar tends to be higher.

 

  • When fasting  blood glucose goes above 200, you may need drugs or 24-hour insulin coverage-possibly both along with lifestyle changes.

Homeopathy for Babies and Children

HOMOEOPATHY FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN

 Homoeopathy is ideal for babies and children as it is a gentle yet highly effective system of medicine. Homeopathic remedies taste good and children like them the highly diluted natural substances that from homeopathic remedies mean that they are safe to use in the very young, including newborn babies.

More than that, homoeopathy can raise the immunity of your children to help deal with illness throughout their childhood. Homeopathy not only helps when your child is ill. It can also help prevent illness and give support through difficult periods of their life. Homeopathy works fast with children because they are usually full of vitality. Acute conditions such as ear infections, tonsillitis and flu, can be resolved rapidly using the right remedies, often avoiding the need for conventional medicines. Babies also tend to respond quickly to homeopathic treatment. On a more serious note, there are children with serious behavior problems! Yes, homeopathy works for these too!

Kids today face more responsibility, uncertainty, pressure, and other ”grown-up” issues than any generation in the past. If your child or teenager is experiencing stress, the primary goal is to resolve the source of anxiety. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible—at least immediately. In some cases, it may not even be in the best interest of the child. Since stress has gotten such a bad rap, sometimes it’s easy to forget that, some stress is positive—it challenges us to grow. An example of positive stress is the challenge of participating in sports or learning a musical instrument.

Homeopathic alternatives treat the whole child. Today there are many pediatricians preffering homoeopathic treatment for their children and patients in various pediatric conditions.

Reasons why homoeopathy should be adopted for children:-

  1. Safe medicine: homoeopathic medicines are free from harmfull effects and 100% non toxic.
  2. Homoeopathy: effective and quick treatment-children being more sensitive, respond quicker to homoeopathy.
  3. Homoeopathy: scientific and Natural medicine- Homoeopathy can be scientifically checked and positive .

Your Diet and Your Health: Poor Diet, Poor Health

We've all heard the old saying “you are what you eat.” And it's still true. If you stick to a healthy diet full of vitamins and minerals, your body reflects it. You feel healthy, energized, and just all-around great. However, people who limit their diet to junk foods will undoubtedly suffer the consequences of not giving their bodies what they need to thrive. The result is not only fatigue and low energy, but poor health as well. 

Many foods have a huge impact on heart health. Research has long shown that fruits and vegetables and a diet rich in whole grains and low in saturated fats can help protect the body from heart disease and high blood pressure, while a diet high in saturated and trans fats without enough fruits and vegetables can actually cause those diseases.

Even small diet deficiencies can have an enormously negative impact on your health. 

 

FOOD COMBINING

Many of my patients come to me for help with their diets. Most of these people have been overweight, gassy and bloated after meals. Food combining can provide the perfect solution. When you food combine, fat is able to burn away properly; so you are not left with undigested food particles lurking throughout your body. The main thing to remember is that foods fat into different groups, and it is important not to eat certain groups at the same time as this will hinder good digestion.

When done properly, food combining will:

  • Help your body to burn fat more efficiently

 

  • Ensure the maximum absorption of nutrients, enzymes and proteins

 

  • prevent burping, bloating, gas  and indigestion

 

  • Generally corrects or prevents most issues connected with obesity

Without food combining, you:

  • Make  complete digestion impossible

 

  • Upset digestive enzymes

 

  • Prevent nutrient uptake

 

  • Risk a host of Ills, including bloating, heartburn, indigestion, mal-absorption, constipation, cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, flatulence, or worse

The problem is that some foods are digested more quickly than others; some require different digestive enzymes, and others need different conditions in the stomach for proper absorption. For example, proteins need acid digestive juices, while carbohydrates need alkaline juices for their digestion.

When my own patients embark upon my food-combining methods, they often notice significant improvements in their physical symptoms within just a few days and also report enhanced energy levels, elevated moods and overall vitality.

 

The food we eat gives our bodies the "information" and materials they need to function properly. If we don't get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines.

If we get too much food, or food that gives our bodies the wrong instructions, we can become overweight, undernourished, and at risk for the development of diseases and conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease.

In short, what we eat is central to our health. 

Food acts as medicine--to maintain, prevent, and treat disease.

What does food do in our bodies?

The nutrients in food enable the cells in our bodies to perform their necessary functions. This quote from a popular textbook describes how the nutrients in food are essential for our physical functioning.

"Nutrients are the nourishing substances in food that are essential for the growth, development and maintenance of body functions. Essential meaning that if a nutrient is not present, aspects of function and therefore human health decline. When nutrient intake does not regularly meet the nutrient needs dictated by the cell activity, the metabolic processes slow down or even stop."

Instead of viewing food as the enemy, we look to food as a way to create health and reduce disease by helping the body maintain function.

Many researchers now believe that these problems are partly related to diet. While they used to believe that diseases-such as type II diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers - were caused by a single gene mutation, they are now generally attributing these conditions to a network of biological dysfunction. And the food we eat is an important factor in that dysfunction, in part because our diets lack the necessary balance of nutrient.

Why Is It Important to Have a Balanced Diet?

1. It Prevents Diseases and Infections

A well-balanced diet helps your body fight many diseases and infections. When the body receives enough nutrients, the immune system functions well, which prevents infection, reduces the risk of chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, as well as prevents seasonal allergies.

2. It Helps Control Weight

Eating a balanced diet helps people to maintain proper weight, which includes reducing the risk for either obesity or undernutrition. This majorly lies in reducing the fats and carbohydrates from your diet.

3. It Promotes Healthy Body Growth

Obtaining the essential nutrients does not only promote fitness and prevent disease; it also helps the body to grow and maintain proper function. A balanced diet is therefore important especially for growing children and adolescents.

4. It Helps Promote Mental Health

Eating a well-balanced diet helps promote good mental function, boosts energy, enhances memory, and reduces the risk of mental disorders.

5. It Helps Enhance Your Beauty

Getting the proper nutrients does not only promote health inside the body; it also shows in the way you look externally. The youthful glow seen on people's hair and skin does not only result from using various beauty products, but also reflects the healthy state of the body inside and out from a balanced diet.

Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis And its Homeopathic Remedies!

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammation of ulcers or open sores, in the innermost layer of the large intestine. It is a form of inflammatory bowel disease. Even though there is no absolute cause of ulcerative colitis, there are some possible factors such as genetics, infections and stress. It mostly seems to be hereditary in the sense that of the 10-30% people that have ulcerative colitis, most of them have one close family member with the same condition.

The main symptoms of ulcerative colitis are the following:

  1. Diarrhoea with blood and mucus
  2. Abdominal pain can range from mild discomfort to painful cramping
  3. Anaemia
  4. Fatigue
  5. Weight loss

Treatment of Ulcerative colitis: Even though conventional treatment such as corticosteroids and aminosalicylates are used to reduce inflammation, homeopathic treatment can help stop the bleeding and diarrhoea. A long-term remission is possible, and future attacks can be prevented by homeopathy.

Some of the common homeopathic ulcerative colitis remedies are:

  1. Argentum nitricum: This is used to relieve diarrhoea with mucus and blood, excessive gas; it is also used to treat anxiety that may arise from diarrhoea.
  2. Arsenicum album: This is used if the stool is foul smelling and frequent, especially at night, and there is a burning pain in the abdomen; fear of disease and death along with sudden chills is also treated by Arsenicum album.
  3. Mercurius corrosivus: This is used to treat haemorrhagic and ulcerative lesions, severely painful defecation and painful foul smelling diarrhoea with blood; it might be taken if the pain remains even after defecation.
  4. Nitricum acidum: This is used if there is diarrhoea with mucus and blood and stinging pains; it is also taken if there are chills coupled with irritable anxiety.
  5. Phosphorus: It is used to treat bloody and painless diarrhoea; it is also used to treat emotional oversensitivity to the feelings of others.

Psoriasis and Homoeopathy

proriasis-get-cured-4451303966

Psoriasis appears as patches of silvery scales or red areas on the legs, knees, arms, elbows, scalp, ears and back. Toes and fingernails can lose their luster and develop ridges and pits. Often hereditary, this condition is linked to a rapid growth of cells in the skin’s outer layer. These growths on the epidermis never mature. Whereas a normal skin cell matures and passes from the bottom layer of the skin to the epidermis in the bout 28 days, psoriatic cells from in about eight days, causing scaly patches that spread to cover larger and lager areas. The condition is not contagious.

Psoriasis generally follows a pattern of periodic flare- ups alternating with periods of remission, most commonly beginning between the ages of fifteen and twenty- five. Among other things, attacks can be triggered by nervous tension, stress, illness, injury, surgery, cuts, poison ivy, viral or  bacterial  infection, sunburn, overuse of drugs, lithium, and beta- blockers a type of medication frequently prescribed for experience an associated arthritis that is similar to rheumatoid arthritis and that is difficult to treat.

 

DIETARY RECOMMENDATION

  • Eat a diet that is composed of 50 percent raw foods and includes plenty of fruits, grains, and vegetables include fish in the diet as well.

 

  • Get plenty of dietary fiber. Fiber is critical for maintaining a healthy colon. Many fiber components, such as apple pectin and psyllium husks, are able to bind to bowel toxins and promote their excretion in the feces. Also follow the program for colon cleansing. A clean colon is very important.

 

  • Use fish oil, flaxseed oil, or primrose oil supplements. They contain ingredients that interfere with the production that promotes the inflammatory acid a natural substance that promotes the inflammatory response and makes the lesions of psoriasis turn red and swell. Red meat and dairy products contain AA. Avoid these foods.

 

  • Apply seawater to the affected area with cotton several times a day.

 

  • Use cold-pressed flaxseed, or soybean oils.

 

  • Do not consume citrus fruits, fried foods, processed foods, saturated fats (found in meat and dairy products), sugar, or white flour.

A VOCABULARY OF PERSONALITY

When personality is talked about, certain terms are used without thinking about them. Many such terms, though their meanings may seem clear and are given precise definitions by psychologists. These narrower meanings reduce the risk of misunderstanding when psychologists discuss personalities.
 

Attitude:

A tendency to like or dislike classes of people or things based on one’s beliefs and feelings. Eg: people who seem to believe that all women are emotional can be said to have a prejudiced attitude.

Character:

In the broad sense, same as personality if used to refer to a person’s total pattern of behavior. However, the word character generally implies the added dimension of ethical or moral values.
E.g: Letters of recommendation may refer to a person’s trustworthy emotionally stable character. A person who cheats on an exam is said to have a questionable character.

Disposition :

A person’s built-in tendency to react to a tendency to react to a given situation in a characteristic way; similar to temperament.
E.g: People who smile easily, are kind to others and are sympathetic listeners are said to have a friendly disposition.

Habit:

A learned mode of behavior that is relatively fixed (and hard to change) and occurs again and again in certain situations.
E.g: Taking a vitamin pill every day and fastening one’s seat belt before driving are both havits so are smoking cigarettes and driving too fast.

Mood:

An emotional state that may dominate one’s outlook and manner of expressing oneself for a period of time.
E.g: Winning a major competition puts one in a euphoric mood, being caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic bring on a depressed or irritable mood.

Personality:

The totality of a person’s unique psychological qualities, which consistently determines his pattern of behavior in a variety of situations.
E.g: Two boys were assigned a room together in boarding school. Since one was quiet and studious and the other liked to spend all his time partying, they were found to have incompatible personalities.

Temperament:

One’s inborn manner of reacting to things. It may show itself at birth or soon after, especially in the way a child expresses emotions and in his or her level of activity.
E.g: Some babies are excitable and active, while others show a calm and passive temperament. Some adults are easy-going and relaxed, while others are high-strung.

State:

A set of feeling of a certain kind that one is aware of and that causes some reaction in the autonomic nervous system (faster beating of heart rate, for example). Unlike a trait, a state is only temporary.
E.g: Not being prepared for an exam will cause a state of worrying or stress but always being upset at exams is a sign of the trait called anticipating anxiety.

Trait:

A specific way of behavior that occurs again and again, tends to characterize a person, and is useful in predicting future behavior.
E.g. Someone who gives money to charitable organizations or to friends in need and who gives up leisure time for a worthy cause could be said to possess the trait of generosity.

Type:

A category used to classify people who share similar traits.
E.g: People described as type A are said to behave in competitive and sometimes hostile ways in reaction to the stresses in their lives.

Values:

Qualities that a person had learned to believe are important or worthwhile. They can be principles to live by or goals to be achieved.
E.g: Power and wealth are important to some people others may find friendship and community service to be of greater significance.

DETERMINANTS OF PERSONALITY

Personality is the product of the interaction of genetic constitutional (intrinsic) factors and the environmental (extrinsic) factors.

Among the intrinsic factors are:

  • Genotype
  • Genotype milieu
  • Constitution comprising physical, physiological and biochemical aspects
  • Endocrine influences
  • Growth and maturation processes

Extrinsic factors include:

  • Parental and family influences
  • Social cultural factors
  • Life experiences
  • Physical or mental handicaps as a reaction to illness

DISEASE AS CREATION

Samuel Hahnemann had already come to the conclusion that the complaints are not the disease. He calls disease a derangement of the vital force, the dynamic or spiritual force which animates man. The disadvantage of this definition is that it is rather vague. It does make it clear however, that he saw the root of disease to be on the energetic or psychic level.

In the section below the root cause of disease will be further explored. The different ways to look at disease will be compared. The advantages and disadvantages of the various points of view will be put next to each other. We will also see how the different points of view could complement rather than exclude each other.

Disease as a process of ‘wear and tear’

This is the first conception of disease, the way it is often used in ordinary medicine. A human being wears out, just like a machine. From time to time we need to replace the worn out parts. This vision of disease as a wearing out process fits well in the mechanistic view of the world. This vision is not so strange. Everybody gets older, weaker and eventually dies. But there are certain problems with this point of view. Isn’t it true that the human body is constantly being renewed and repaired? So it is not clear how and when the wearing out process would win from the ability to repair. This dilemma is represented clearly in the following example. An old woman goes to the doctor with pain in her right knee. The doctor looks at it and says reassuringly: ‘Don’t worry, it is only a bit of wear and tear. Upon which the women reacts with ‘ it is alright for you to say that, but my left knee is just as old and there is nothing wrong with that one’.

The above example shows that such a diagnosis does not really mean anything. It does not make it clear why the ability to repair is not functioning. Let us look at another example. It is an example of a girl with serve acne. We could say then that her immunity is worn out, that it can’t function well anymore because it has been overtaxed. It sounds a bit artificial. That is because it shows one once again that nothing real has been explained.

Disease as a threat

This is the second way of looking at disease. It is also the most obvious: something is not going well, death may even be threatening. On the inner level disease is often experienced like this. There are people who experience disease to be such a threat that even when they do not have a disease, they are constantly afraid of it.

Allopathy also has this view of disease. The disease is something bad, it comes from outside and it need to be fought… The bacteria and viruses have to be killed at any cost, it is ‘either them or me’. We can also associate this with the archetype of the shadow. Jung calls the negative part in man’s psyche the shadow. Many people are inclined to push this negative part away and to make it unconscious. Afterwards projection may take place, the negative part is put in the outside world and does not seem to exist anymore inside man himself anymore. The same then counts for disease. It is something that you have to keep very far away from yourself, but which at the same time is also a part yourself.

Let us return to our example of the girl with eczema. We can see the eczema then as a threat of bacteria in the skin. The threat is not serious yet, only her skin is being threatened. But it could become serious. The viewpoint of disease as a threat has an analogy to the theory of evolution. The ultimate moral is the survival of the fittest. In disease as a threat the central idea is that you have to defend yourself against all negative influences from outside.

Disease as Original state

Hahneman also calls disease a ‘state of being’ or a way to live and be. Sankaran links this state of being to the original situation. The outer original situation is then linked to an inner state of being. The inner state is then an adequate reaction to a certain situation in the environment. Looked at it this way the state is then an excellent reaction to the state of the environment. The only problem is that the reaction can be exaggerated. Or that it can stay even while the original situation has disappeared. The useful reaction is maintained and therefore becomes useless, a waste of energy. From the above it will be clear that in homoeopathy the root cause of disease is of great importance. The situation in which the disease originated is very important in order to understand the diseased and the disease. Let us return to our example once more. On closer investigation it appears that the parents of the girl with acne are constantly quarrelling. She cannot tolerate this. The imminent divorce of the parents causes a great fear of being abandoned. The girl becomes depressed, she retreats into herself and does not have friends anymore. Sometimes she even gets outbursts of anger when everything gets too anymore. Sometimes she reacts to the quarrels by brooding gloomily. When we look at the complaint in this way, then the symptom of acne is a reaction to the situation in the environment. And the reaction is right in that sense that is good to show her parents that they are causing her pain. Perhaps- they will quarrel less for her sake, perhaps they will give her more attention.

It is very efficient to link remedies to situational causes. It makes it much easier to learn and remember the varying symptoms. They will get a meaning and function in the total reaction pattern. And that it quite different from a indigestible heap of little symptoms in the material medica.

Disease as talent strategy

You could also see the reaction patterns of, for instance, the girl in our example as a talent. These survival strategies are also an art or talent. They are an ability to manipulate the environment. You could also call it a strategy, a strategy which works excellently in certain situations in order to make the best of it. It is the positive side of ‘disease’. These reaction patterns are possibilities, talents, abilities to handle situations. Here again the problem is not the talent but the fact that you can’t react in any other way anymore, it become a nuisance. Looked at it this way disease becomes a talent that has gone too far. In other words: the talent turns against you like a boomerang.

Going back to our example you could say that it is rather clever of this girl to make her parents stop fighting. When they see her so silent and gloomy they understand that they are hurting her and they stop quarrelling.

Disease as illusion

Another approach is to see disease as an illusion, the way sankaran calls it a ‘central delusion’. In every disease there is a central theme, something that the patients perceives wrongly. If you find such a central delusion in a patient and if you can find that delusion descried in any homoeopathic literature then you can prescribe on it. In our example the girl lives with the delusion that quarrelling is threatening and that she will be abandoned. This idea, or rather, this delusion is the central theme of magnesium muriaticum. Therefore if someone has this delusion you can prescribe that remedy. This is also possible if the original situation has long since passed. Or even if the original situation never existed, but is merely present in somebody as a feeling or delusion.

The idea disease as original state is linked to that of delusion. The patient has the delusion of still being in the original situation. The magnesium muriaticum girl first takes on the delusion of being abandoned in a situation when her parents, through their quarrelling, might leave her behind. Whether that original situation still exists later on is of less importance. Thus you could also prescribe magnesium muriaticum when the parents got divorced a long time ago. This idea is comparable to the idea of Masi (told during a seminar) of’ primary psora’. Masi has his own addition to the concept of psora, sycosis and syphilis. He perceives sycosis as an active, positive reaction and syphilis as destructive reaction to a primary problem. That problem being a fear, nostalgia or loss, which masi then calls the primary psora. In the Christian way of thinking masi links this primary psora to the idea of original sin. The idea of primary psora is in reality the same as that of delusion. In the above example of magnesium muriaticum you could say that the fear that her parents quarrel, will separate and will abandon her is the primary psora.

One can also find the disease of the patient in his philosophy of life. The delusion gets translated to a conviction, for instance: all people are bad’ or ‘Nobody loves me. Especially terms like ‘always, never, everybody, nothing’ etc. etera point to the fact that people are speaking from their delusion. Their perception of the world is then seen as if it counts for everyone and at anytime. Thus the norms and values of people are a good representation of their problems.

A nice illustration of the relationship between delusion and disease is shown in the book written by siegel ‘Love, harmony and cure’. A woman has ALS, a paralyzing disease where the muscles waste away. She became conscious of the fact that her thoughts were always on her weight, that she always wanted to become slimmer, because then her problems would probably disappear. Suddenly she realizes ‘is it mere coincidence that I always wanted to have a thinner body and that ALS is now fulfilling this wish?’.

In Hawaii now had the same conception of disease as a belief. The only thing that a kahuna healer’ has to do to cure someone is to change his belief system, the rest of the rituals are a secondary matter. Here also a clear link is made between feeling and belief a feeling is energy which is linked to and bound by a belief.

An interesting point in king’s book is the differentiation between three sorts of belief. First there are opinions about which you can have discussions. Secondly there are convictions. When people are confronted with the opposite of their convictions they become emotional, they start heated discussions and react with strong disapproval. And thirdly there are deeply rooted convictions. They are so deep that people hardly recognize them themselves and their reaction to a confrontation is merely surprise. These last mentioned convictions

Disease as temptation

One could also see disease as an addiction. Every pattern has its securities. Predictable reactions and possibilities. The unchangeable reaction patterns makes people very predictable, both for themselves and others. The letting go of a state of disease can bring feelings of insecurity with it. One can get feelings of: what do I do instead?’ or ‘ who am I really? ‘ Also, every solutions to a problem gives you a certain kick, which could make you inclined to continue with these patters even in situations where they aren’t appropriate. Let us look at our example. It could be tempting for the girl to remain in her state of being. She has a lovely feeling of being wronged and she does not have to take up responsibilities. If she left her state of depression she would have to start doing something with her life.

Disease as protection

We could see disease as protection in direct relation to disease as temptation. A certain attitude can keep a danger or a fear at bay and can therefore give a certain amount of protection. That shows at the same time the tempting aspect of that attitude.

But a certain behavior can also serve as ‘diversion tactice’. By being intensively occupied with your work for instance, you could push away or walk around a deeper problem, such as for instance troubles in your marriage. This sometimes appears to lead to unwanted results in the course of treatment. The problem which lay on the surface has been treated, but with it the underlying problem suddenly comes to the surface in full intensity. And the condition for the patient appears to be aggravated instead of ameliorated.

Disease as symbol

In this view a complaint is seen as a symbolic expression of a psychological problem. This view point has been accepted throughout history, as many expressions in our language confirm: ‘This a load on my shoulders, ‘ He is a pain in the neck, ‘This is hard to stomach, etc. Our language contains many of these examples.

Many people have also experienced similar feelings. For instance, there are certain problems within the family and it gives you stomach problems. The problems seem to lie heavily in the stomach. in the more chronic complaints this vision is not as easy to use. But it is possible to see all diseases as symbolic. Dethlefsen describes this view extensive in his book ‘The meaning of being ill’.

Disease as cultural phenomenon

It is also possible to see disease as a cultural phenomenon. Every culture has its norms and values. When these norms and values are very one sided, they could turn into illusions or delusions. And they could then lead to complaints in the different individuals within culture. In our culture it is ;not done’ to show sadness. You don’t suddenly cry, and definitely not in the open. Even at a funeral of a well loved person you are supposed to remain composed. This in contrast for instance to other cultures where the wailing can be heard from far away, and even is the ‘done thing.

If one compares the different types of psychosis in Europe and japan one can see that there are many types that are exist in both cultures. But there are also many types of psychosis that exist in only one or the other culture. There is always a definite connection to the particular norms and values in that culture.

Disease as myth or fairy tale

Disease can also be seen as a myth or fairy tale. Herein we also see certain themes returning. One person’s problem is seldom unique, you can find it within many people.

Myths and fairy tales are the expression of this fact. If somebody recognizes his own problem in a fairy tale it can touch deeply. The seminars in Bad Boll have shown that many remedies show a preference for a certain type of fairy tale. Someone who is ill therefore takes part in a certain kind of problem. Via the myth one is connected to the whole of humanity. Often the myth also offers the solution to the problem and can thus be a real help. Campbell says ; ‘if you can find out where someone is blocked, it must be possible to find the mythological key to unlock this door.

On the other hand you could say that, by solving his own problems, someone could help humanity to solve its mythological problems. It has become apparent that the best help with a certain problem can be given by those people, who themselves have had and solved that same type of problem. They are best able to feel the essence of the problem and to know where solutions are to be found and where only temporary solutions will fail. Alcoholics Anonymous’ is a good example of this.

Disease as creation or game

Finally there is the view of disease as creation. you could then call disease to be ‘spiritosomatic’ analogous to the terms psychosomatic. A human being crates a certain state within himself and then looks for a fitting situation around that. Here we see the circumstances not as the cause of disease, but instead man is cause of his disease and creator of the circumstances.

In this viewpoint the responsibility comes back to man himself. He himself becomes responsible for his disease and the situation. But within the ability of creating a disease also lies the ability of finding a solution. Man then has the ability to change, to let go of old problems and to create new possibilities. This then is the level at which diseases are created and resolved. Form this viewpoint of disease as creation, terms like good and bad are not applicable anymore. One simply has a whole range of states, creations with experiences belonging to them.

 

EMOTIONS

Naming specific emotions such as love, anger and fear is easier than finding an all-purpose definition. In fact there is no scientific consensus on how to define emotion. Most scientist agree that emotions are different from rational thought (congition), from information known through our senses (perception), and from storing of the information (memory), yet emotions interact with all these mental function.

Not only is the concept of emotion vague and complicated, but also it gets mixed up with other terms, adding to the confusion. Some scientists regard the term ‘Affect’ as synonymous with emotion, but to others, affect means only the part of an emotion that is experienced consciously, aside from any unconscious or bodily responses. In our context, emotion and affect will be synonymous.

As brain develops, emotions grow more complex. Not until the age of two months when the brain advanced enough to manage the first real smile. Four months later, a baby begins to show a fear of separation. As we grow older, our expectations are challenged. For example, if we hope to get a job and then do not, anger disappointment and self-doubt are felt. All these feelings occur at once and add up to a complex total response.

Emotions shade into one another, researchers cannot agree on what counts as a separate emotion. When does impatience turn into anger? Depending upon how such questions are answered, the total number of emotions could be dozens or thousands. Many psychologists have tried to shortlist emotins to the most basic one. Robert pluchik lists eight basic emotions.

Acceptance, anger, anticipation, disgust, fear, joy, sadness and surprise. Some researchers think it is senseless to try to count emotions, because the number is virtually countless. That is why some feel emotions depends entirely on the thinking. Experience and memory of the individual-who is unique among all the people who ever lived.

Any explanation of emotions has to consider three factors.

  • What triggers or arouses an emotion?
  • How, after being aroused, body and mind respond or express their reaction?
  • How our physical and mental responses further change the way we experience an emotion?

Thus, emotion really involves three mysteries, Arousal, Expression and Imprinting.

AROUSAL OF EMOTION

Theories abound on what triggers an emotional response. One that makes sense to many of today’s scientists, states that emotions are aroused when we detect a “discrepancy”. This could be some thing new, a disturbance or some other interruption in the normal and expected course of things.

EXPRESSION OF EMOTIONS

Once emotions are aroused, what happens immediately is automatic, out of control of the conscious mind (the autonomic response).

Amounting to bodily arousal several visceral or “gut” reactions occur, but if they are intense or prolonged it is identical to stress. The heart beats faster, the liver is stimulated to release more energy, releasing glucose into the blood stream, changes in respiratory rate leads to pumping of more oxygen into the body, and the stomach and intestine tighten, the pupils of the eyes dilate, saliva dries up but sweat flows more freely, and skin surface contracts causing a crawly feeling or ‘goose-bumps’. This physical response to emotion is termed ‘stress response’ (flight, fight, fright response) and is governed by Hypothalmic-Limbic-Sympathetic and Autonomic-Adrenal axis.

What happens next is that these bodily events register in the conscious mind. The next step, how the mind reacts, depends entirely on the thinking and memory processes leading to a somewhat delayed physical and behavioral response which is under control of the conscious mind. The response is best expressed on the face.

Researchers believe there are some facial expressions immediately identifiable regardless of the age, sex or sadness, anger and disgust. Most other facial expression are strongly influenced by one’s upbringing and individuality. Mixed emotions like surprise, joy, pride, relief and exhaustion, struggle for expression.

Remember an emotion that persists that persists becomes a mood and a persistent expression in the long run causes a shift in health and behavior. How people express their emotions or in other words their behavior, is a significant clue to mental health. However there is a wide range of behaviours which are normal and a diagnosis of mental illness is rarely made on the basis of one or two seemingly abnormal emotional episodes.

If a person expresses a response to emotion in a way that falls well within the normal range, psychologists say the person is showing Appropriate Affect. On the other hand, people who express less range of emotions are said to have constricted Affect. The apparent reverse of this affect is seen in people who overtly express emotion and they are the ones with Exalted Affect. However, there are people who seem to ride on an emotional roller-coaster, laughing one moment and crying the next; this condition is termed instable Affect. If such emotional responses are severe and long lasting, they are called Affective disorders.

IMPRINTING OF EMOTIONS

As a perfect sensation (sensation felt through sense organs) leaves an imprint in subconscious so does an affect (emotion). The subconscious imprints are classified in the subconscious mind as reward and punishment. Meaning a percept and affect may arouse a feeling of reward and punishment in subconscious.

Rewards acts as ‘drives’ but emotions that induce a feeling of punishment are considered as ‘threats’ to the ego. The memory of the past emotional experience can be as powerful emotion arouser as the event itself. How each of individual thinks and how and what is to be remembered, can heighten or lessen the intensity of a feeling. These feeling can then loop back and affect our bodies.

The mind alone can trigger a ‘stress response’. The memory or expectation of a sad event can make us cry, a remembered or imagined argument can make us angry. Similarly if we fall in love, memories of earlier relationships colour our feelings.

SELF (EGO) AND EGO-DEFENCE MECHANISM

Perhaps the Most valueable mental asset is self-esteem, a self image that the individual likes and respects. Without it, we have little chance of possessing what philosophers and scientists have called by many names: Vedic Ahamkara, a sound ego an intact psyche, a healthy personality, a fulfilled self or simply a wise and resourceful mind.

It is a wonder that human beings have an array of defences to protect their self-esteem or Freudian ego. “Threats” come in many disguise, such as anxiety, guilt, shame and conflict between two or more drives or emotions and conflict between two or more drives or emotions. As individuals we continuously face these threats. Often, emotions are automatically repressed repressed and pushed them into unconscious mind. Such repression may be most basic ego defence mechanism, a term Sigmund Freud used to describe the ego’s effort to resolve conflicts between the primal, the moralistic superego and eternal reality.

This concept of ego and defence mechanism was hinted by Hahnemann when he illustrates some sickness spun in the soul. In the recent homeopathic literature a term has crept in ‘Basic delusion’ by this terms the authors mean a basic error in psyche against which a basic ego defence mechanism is constructed and this basic error for a homeopath is a key point in the beginning of chronic diseases. Defence mechanisms were once considered neurotic, but that view has mellowed. The prevailing opinion is that they are at times necessary solutions to the problem of preserving self-esteem.

Freud and his successors identified dozens of defence mechanisms beginning with repression/ suppression. Projection is blaming some body else for one’s own thoughts or actions. Rationaliszation justifies questionable behavior by defining its propriety. Reaction formation is acting exactly opposite to the way one feels, because the real feeling frightens.

The trouble with repressing bad feelings is, that they may pop out later. For example, a child may repress anger caused by anxiety over the unpredictable behavior of a parent. As an adult the child’s anger can erupt in rebellion against all authority.

 

Never Bean Well Since..Aetiology And Homoeopathic Prescription

 

Aetiology – “The Assignment Of A Cause”

Here, a prescription is based primarily on some past trauma, illness or event rather than on the presenting symptoms. The stronger the cause-and-effect relationship between the trauma and the presenting state, the more is the etiological prescription is indicated.

In cases with a direct aetiology, there is a clear and direct relationship between the presenting problem and the trauma which preceded it, no matter how long the problem has persisted. For example, when a patient say ( I have had recurrent headaches ever since a head injury three years ago”) that is a direct etiology. In such a case, a ‘head injury’ remedy first is to be looked for, using the symptoms of the case to differentiate between the remedies in that group. Kent’s repertory contains many etiological rubrics showing those remedies, which from clinical experience have an established reputation in curing ailments following a particular trauma, be it grief, fright, bad news, vaccination, injury, poisoning etc. the appropriate rubric is a good starting place in a case displaying a direct etiology.

Sometimes when the cause and effect relationship is very clear, particularly if there are no outstanding symptoms in the case, the etiology can completely over-rule symptomatology as the basis for the prescription. Thus it is that our ‘trauma’ remedies such as Aconite, Arnica and Hypericum have cured many symptoms and conditions, which never appeared in their respective proving.

In a case having a direct etiology there are three choices for the prescriber: the prescription may be based on the etiology alone, on the symptoms alone or on combination of the two. It is seen that wherever possible the third option is the most reliable one, but the etiology should be used as a starting point provided there are remedies known to have that etiology as a confirmed indication.

 

THE HUMAN BEING IN THE ENVIRONMENT

  •  What is a human being?
  •  How is the human being constructed?
  •  How does the human being function in the context of his universe?

 What are the laws and principles governing the function of the human being in both health and disease?

To begin with, we must recognize that the human organism is not an isolated entity, sufficient unto itself. Every individual is born, lives, and dies inseparably from the larger contexts of physical, social, political, and spiritual influences. The laws governing the physical universe are not separate from those governing the functions of living organisms. So, we must begin by comprehending clearly the setting in which the human being is found, how it influences him, and in turn how he affects it.

As with all things, the human organism was originally designed to function harmoniously and compatibly in the environment are mutually benefited. Any imbalance inevitably leads to destruction, which diminishes both the human being and the universe in which he or she lives. Since human beings are endowed with consciousness and awareness, they carry a great responsibility, both for their own benefit and for that of the Cosmos, to live according to the laws of Nature. Ideally, the human race should have enough consciousness and awareness to live within and contribute to the order of the universe, and thereby be freed to achieve the highest possibilities of evolution.

Instead, we find ourselves in the midst of disorder and disease. In the midst of an age of unprecedented technological advancement, we also see unprecedented damage being done to the atmosphere, the water, and the land. Socially, it is easy to pessimistically conjecture that the modern epidemics of competition, violence, and war may well lead to the actual destruction of the human race. And individually-instead of rejoicing in an increasing degree of vibrant health from generation to generation we witness a continuous decline in health.

Why is this so? In the most basic analysis, we can ascribe this state of degeneration to two dynamics:

Human violations of laws of nature, resulting in contamination of the environment, which in turn places increased stress on the ability of the individual to function.
Mankind has gradually lost the inner awareness which would have enabled correct perception of the laws of nature, which must be respected.

Thus we see that both collectively and individually human beings are simultaneously affecting and are affected by the environment as we deviate increasingly from the laws of nature, a vicious cycle is established which requires grate insight and energy to correct.

For each individual in this situation, there may be a wide variety of possible responses to external stresses. Some people seem to be relatively unaffected by external or internal disturbances. Their organisms are in a state of relative balance which is maintained with minimal effort. Most people, on the other hand, experience degrees of imbalance ranging from slight to very severe this are the individuals we consider dis-eased, in the broadest use of the term. In such people, the disturbance manifests itself in a highly individualistic and varied manner, but always the disturbance can be viewed as an imbalance in the organism’s ability to cope with internal and external influences. If we consider the individual as totality, it is clear that the disturbances do not manifest themselves solely on the physical level of existence, as assumed in modern allopathic medical practice. The entire person is disturbed on all levels of existence, to verying degrees.

Myth And Facts About Homoeopathy

Myth And Facts About Homoeopathy

Myth : Homeopathy establishes “Magic Cure” – it is just an unproven method of treatment.
Fact : Homeopathy is a method of treatment based on laws and principles drawn from sound logic and experimental data. Its exact scientific basis still remains unproven but the clinical and experimental data prove its efficacy.

Myth : Homeopathic medicines are placebo and have no medicinal action.
Fact : This issue is the most popular myth regarding homeopathy. An occasional burp of it has become a routine affair. It is true that the sugar pills given are inert and do not have medicinal power but they are just vehicles or carrier of homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines can be given dissolved in water or in sugar pills but still they establish cure. It is the resultant cure which shows the medicine has acted and was not just a placebo. The scientific study of efficacy of homeopathic cures throughout the world cannot be merely from placebo effect.

Myth : Homeopathy is only suited to chronic cases or terminal cases.
Fact : It is a common notion that homeopathy is the choice for treating chronic cases or those patients who are not relieved or do not go well along with allopathic drugs. Most of the patients have attained this knowledge through their contacts or maybe some unlucky ordeal. It may be true in some cases but not always. The rightful act for attaining complete relief is to approach homeopathy before it is too late. If you are delaying a visit to doctor or health professional then it is another story but if you are delaying because you have to visit a homeopath then it is health negligence on your part. Most commonly the time of visit depends on your complaint; it can be summed up as:

In Acute cases:  Acute diseases are those diseases which have sudden origin and the intensity of discomfort is high. In such cases people generally take conventional medicine thinking, Homeopathy is slow acting and is not worth trying in acute cases. But the truth is that, homeopathy is also effective in acute cases if the choice of similimum is proper. In Surgical cases: The scope of homeopathy is limited in surgical cases; in some cases homeopathic medicines prevent surgeries while in some the patient needs to be referred to surgical OPDS (Out Patients Department) for the needful. It all depends on your health state and the disease condition when you consult the homeopathic physician.

In Chronic cases:  Chronic diseases are those cases which have insidious origin, long duration with less to moderate discomfort. Homeopathy has now and again proved its efficacy in these cases.

In Terminal cases:  These cases include those cases which have been diagnosed as beyond the range of complete cure. In such cases homeopathy can help to reduce the suffering and also improve the quality of life.

If you are not sure of your disease better visit the physician and let him decide for you. Better safe than sorry.
Thus we see that the common myth that homeopathy is limited to some diseases is not true. Every science has limitations; no science is complete in itself, so why blame homeopathy alone? The best way to get maximum results is to approach homeopathy when you are still within the curable zone.

Myth : Homeopathy works slow.
Fact : This is the most popular myth about homeopathy but it is not true in all the cases. In fact, if the choice of similimum is proper the patient would show immediate signs of improvement. In acute diseases the response time is within minutes while in chronic diseases it can extend to days; it all depends on your disease state and the duration of action of the remedy. Your homeopathic physician would inform you about the signs of improvement that you can notice for yourselves. So you can find it for yourself that in most cases homeopathy can work faster, providing quicker relief than the other systems of medicine.

Myth : Excessive medicine effects fast.
Fact : Sometimes people summarize this rule owing to their experiences with conventional medicine; but this does not hold true in the case of Homeopathy. Law of Minimum Doses is one of the cardinal principles of Homeopathy – homeopathic medicines are given in qualitative doses i.e. in potencies and not quantitatively. A single dose of the similimum be it of poppy sized globule can work wonders for you. If you are taking more than you are prescribed, you are hindering your cure.

Myth : Homeopathic medicines do not have side effects.
Fact : It’s a well known fact that anything taken in excess is bound to be harmful. So why won’t homeopathic medicines cause harmful effects if you take them in excess due to negligence or thinking them to be placebo. (For the latter you can consult homeopathic physician to give you an insight into which medicine would show immediate response to enlighten you.) Moreover, homeopathic medicines act on the dynamic plane. So you may not be able to see the immediate after effects but it will become evident sooner or later. So it is best not to take the medicine unless needed or prescribed.

Myth : A good medicine must have expiry date on it.
Fact : Homeopathic medicines do have an expiry date; it would not be fruitful if you intend to pass the medicine phials through generations. Homeopathic medicines have a certain amount of alcohol mixed in them to preserve them; once it evaporates your medicines are of no use. For better results it is advised to store your medicines in dark colored bottles away from sunlight – it just helps them to last longer (read not forever).

Myth : People taking homeopathic medicines should not take onions, garlic, tobacco, etc.
Fact : As we have found now and then that most things we use in our food have power to affect our health, it all depends on how we utilize them. Since Homeopathic medicines act on the dynamic plane and affect us even through minimum doses, it becomes very essential not to interfere with the medicinal action. Taking food stuffs like onions, garlic, camphor, herbs in our diet only adds extra medicines to the prescribed ones preventing its proper action and thus affecting cure. But the modern culinary trend involves the use of spices to such an extent that it is difficult to completely avoid it. So one can go for using them in moderate amount and with brief interlude. As for spirituous liquors and tobacco, avoiding them is always good.

Myth : Bitter medicines effect faster and more.
Fact : There is no scientific fact to this – a medicine has its power in its constituent and not its taste. And if you believe it then sure you must know that most homeopathic remedies are bitter so they are given in medium of sugar globules to soothe your tongue; for Homeopathy acts gently.

Myth : Every symptom or complaint has different medicine.
Fact : It is not always true, for homeopathy treats the patient as a whole and not his individual sicknesses or complaints. So the choice of medicine is always one which belongs to patient as a whole. It may be possible that a new symptom may be so important that it changes the choice of medicine but it may not happen always. You may go by what your physician advises for he knows better when to change the prescription and when not to. On your part you can only tell him as much as you know about your disease.

Myth : Homeopathy acts by “aggravating” the complaints.
Fact : Homeopathic medicines are always prescribed such that the power or potency of drug should be just higher than the power of disease. Then only the medicine establishes cure. The medicine is perfect for your case only if it produces a slight aggravation of your present symptoms i.e. slight intensification of your complaints. But it is slight enough to provide minimum discomfort. That is, homeopathic medicines do produce a slight aggravation but it is for your own benefit as this slight aggravation is a sure sign that your medicine is perfectly chosen and will cure you. But do care to inform your physician about this aggravation if you find it discomforting. DO NOT TAKE ANY MEDICINE BY YOUR FREE WILL in such cases as you will again hamper the curative action of similimum.

Myth : Homeopathy is about psychological healing.
Fact : People sometimes feel that homeopathy is about psychological healing. We don’t deny it altogether, as what cure you can do if you let the patient bottle up his grievances and sorrows. We do admit that sometimes when the patient is suffering from suppressed emotions and only talking-it-out can do him some good that is the only way out (even the psychiatrics would approve it). In such cases homeopathic case-taking and counseling acts as “catharsis” and relieves the patient, but it is not always. The thorough case taking is for choosing the right medicine to cure the patient. It may be that talking-out provides momentary relief but it is only the medicine which establishes cure and not the case taking.

Myth : Homeopath asks many personal questions without any relevancy with the disease, only to confuse the patient.
Fact : Homeopath cures the patient as a whole and not just his complaints. To understand a patient as a whole requires knowing him as a person that includes apart from his complaints his likes, dislikes, his habits, his behavior, his response to certain situations etc. To know him better sometimes the physician can ask some personal questions – it can be about his bowel habits, his sexual life, sleeping pattern, his dreams, his past and present emotional setbacks etc. these are not to confuse or irritate the patient; they are just to know him better. This knowledge would help the physician in the choice of right medicine which would provide speedy recovery to the patient. So you can just relax and answer truthfully what your physician asks – it is only for your own benefit (off course you can excuse yourself if it becomes overbearing).

Myth : If my spouse/friend/relative suffers from the same complaint as I have- the same medicine will benefit all of us. That is I can give them the same medicine.
Fact : This is one of the most common myths in homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of Individualisation which tailoring the remedy according to individuals need. It means every individual is different from others in some way; be it his stature, talking, choices, behavior, or his susceptibility to diseases. Even the fraternal twins are different from each other in one way or the other; so how can same medicine be given to two different people even if they have the same complaint. Homeopathic medicines are always prescribed for the complete package that is the individual so naturally the medicine will change for different persons.

Myth : If I am going to a homeopath for some complaint, it is not necessary to tell him about the other medicines I am taking from other doctors.
Fact : This is not true; in any pathy i.e medicine (allopathy, Ayurveda, siddha, homeopathy etc.) you have to inform the physician what other complaints you have and what medications you are on. Especially in homeopathy where the choice of medicine would change with your case; let’s understand it like if the individual data changes the resultant choice changes. So be open with him about your complaints and choice of treatment. It may even be possible that you can have medicine for all your complaints from the homeopath himself and you won’t have to go to other doctors.

Myth : If I want to take homeopathic medicines for some chronic complaint I can not take any other medications especially allopathic medicines alongwith.
Fact : Ideally it should not be taken; but most of the chronic cases coming for homeopathic treatment are already taking allopathic medicines. If they resort to homeopathy it is better to wait for betterment to start from homeopathic medicines then gradually taper the allopathic medication. It causes some discomfort as your body takes time to adjust once you switch medicines, so it is better to remain in close contact with your homeopathic physician.

Liver Cirrhosis and Homeopathy

BHMS, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition

Liver cirrhosis and Homeopathy

The largest gland of the human body is liver. Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease which features abnormality in structure and functioning of the liver.

Cirrhosis normally means damage to liver cells. These damaged cells are then replaced by scar tissues which restricts the organ to work normally as it ought to. The replacement of normal liver cells with scar tissues is a long and slow process.

 

cGcYT8o

 

The continuous inflammation of the liver cells due to certain conditions wears out them and the regeneration process works with fibrosis and scar tissue formation. If not treated and checked it may lead to liver failure.

Cirrhosis affects liver very badly and disrupts the normal functioning of the liver some of which are of great importance to the human body and all conditions which can damage the cells of the liver can easily cause cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis of liver means the circulation of blood within the liver is not in a normal condition and hence affecting liver metabolism and elimination of various end products of liver. Liver treats and breaks down many substances which include alcohol, drugs and red blood cells. With the formation of cirrhosis liver does not work properly which means accumulation of various harmful substances in liver and hence damaging liver more and more.

Liver cirrhosis is caused due to many factors like viral infections including hepatitis, Alcohol, Cystic fibrosis, Wilson’s disease, Primary biliary cirrhosis, Drugs and toxins, Schistosomiasis (snails) and many more.

These conditions gradually lead to the wear and tear of liver thus affecting its normal routine and mostly causing cirrhosis.

 

Symptoms:

The symptoms of this disease are not easily recognizable at early stages but gradually symptoms can be seen like appetite loss, nausea, weight loss, jaundice, skin itching, swelling in abdomen and ankles, easy bruising, palms turn warm and reddish, asterexis, spider naevi and some more. When cited the patient should be rushed to the doctor and treatment should be started thereafter.

 

Homeopathy:

Homeopathy has proven its point in treating liver conditions of all types. Homeopathy not just treats the symptoms of cirrhosis but also treats its underlying causes like genetic tendency, viral infection, metabolic changes, alcoholic bad effects etc. and helps to treats cirrhosis on the whole. Homeopathy helps in controlling further damage to the liver cells. Homeopathy cannot help in curing scarred tissues as it is impossible to regenerate those affected tissues.

Homeopathy helps in increasing a person’s immune response and hence reduces the virus load and gradually improving the overall health of liver.if homeopathic medication is given to the patient at early stages it helps in preventing the disease in going any further and preventing further complications like liver failure or cancer from occurring. These are the associated disease of cirrhosis if not treated properly.

Homeopathy is hence very helpful in treating the disease efficiently and prevents the disease from progressing and if administered in early stages homeopathic medication helps in restoring most of the normal liver functions. Thus, homeopathic treatment for this disease is strongly advised and especially in the early stages.

Homoeopathic Alternatives To Antibiotics

BHMS, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Homeopath, Lucknow
Homoeopathic Alternatives To Antibiotics

What Are Antibiotics.The word antibiotic comes from the Greek anti meaning ‘against’ and bios meaning ‘life’ (a bacterium is a life form).’ Antibiotics are also known as antibacterials, and they are drugs used to treat infections caused by bacteria. Bacteria are tiny organisms that can sometimes cause illness to humans and animals.

Antibiotics, first used in the 1940s,

An antibacterial is a compound or substance that kills or slows down the growth of bacteria.

Before bacteria can multiply and cause symptoms our immune system can usually destroy them. We have special white blood cells that attack harmful bacteria. Even if symptoms do occur, our immune system can usually cope and fight off the infection.

The first antibiotic was penicillin.


 

How do antibiotics work?

Although there are a number of different types of antibiotic they all work in one of two ways:


 

bactericidal antibiotic kills the bacteria. Penicillin is a bactericidal. A bactericidal usually either interferes with the formation of the bacterium’s cell wall or its cell contents.


 

bacteriostatic stops bacteria from multiplying.


 

What are antibiotics for? Do antibiotics work against all infections?

An antibiotic is given for the treatment of an infection caused by bacteria. Antibiotics target microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and parasites. However, they are not effective against viruses. If you have an infection it is important to know whether it is caused by bacteria or a virus. Most upper respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold and sore throats are generally caused by viruses – antibiotics do not work against these viruses.


 

What are the side-effects of antibiotics?

antibiotics can cause more harm than good when they aren’t used the right way

Below is a list of the most common side-effects of antibiotics:

Side-effects range from mild to very serious depending on the antibiotics used, the microbial organisms targeted, and the individual patient.Safety profiles of newer drugs are often not as well established as for those that have a long history of use.

Adverse effects range from fever and nausea to major allergic reactions, including photodermatitis and anaphylaxis.

  1. Diarrhea

  2. Feeling and being sick

  3. Fungal infections of the mouth, digestive tract and vagina

  4. Below is a list of rare side-effects of antibiotics:

  5. Formation of kidney stones (when taking sulphonamides)

  6. Abnormal blood clotting (when taking some cephalosporins)

  7. Sensitivity to sun (when taking tetracyclines)

  8. Blood disorders (when taking trimethoprim)

  9. Deafness (when taking erythromycin and the aminoglycosides)

  10. Allergic reactions to antibiotics


 

Some patients may develop an allergic reaction to antibiotics – especially penicillins. Side effects might include a rash, swelling of the tongue and face, and difficulty breathing. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic you must tell your doctor and/or pharmacist. Reactions to antibiotics can be very serious, and sometimes fatal – they are called anaphylactic reactions.


 

Alcohol

Interactions between alcohol and certain antibacterials may occur and may cause side-effects


 

Use antibiotics with extreme caution and ensure you inform your doctor/pharmacist if:

  1. You have reduced liver or kidney function.

  2. You are pregnant

  3. You are breastfeeding.


 

Antibiotic Resistance:

One of the foremost concerns in modern medicine is antibiotic resistance. Simply put, if an antibiotic is used long enough, bacteria will emerge that cannot be killed by that antibiotic. This is known as antibiotic resistance.But overprescribing them has resulted in the development of resistant bacteria, which are bacteria that don’t respond to antibiotics that may have worked in the past.  Infections exist today that are caused by bacteria resistant to some antibiotics. The existence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria creates the danger of life-threatening infections that don’t respond to antibiotics.


 

Bacteria become resistant more quickly when antibiotics are used too often or are not used correctly (such as not taking a full course of antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor).

Misuse-

Though antibiotics are required to treat severe bacterial infections, misuse has contributed to a rise in bacterial resistance.

Self prescription of antibacterials is an example of misuse.

Common forms of antibacterial misuse include excessive use of prophylactic antibiotics in travelers and failure of medical professionals to prescribe the correct dosage of antibioticsw on the basis of the patient’s weight and history of prior use.

Although Antibiotics are operative in eliminating bad bacteria, they also destroy the good bacteria, which is a vital part of our immune system. Good bacteria produce natural Antibiotics, Anticarcinogens and Cholesterol lowering substances and keep our digestive tracts functioning well.

Several transmuted strains of bacteria, are resilient to Antibiotics and are not influenced by the drugs of the pharmaceutical industry.

An Antibiotic or an Anti-viral drug may remove the pathogen, but will not assist in escalating the person’s immune system, thereby, increasing chances of re-infection.Due to side effects with Antibiotics and Antiviral drugs, most people these days are looking at Natural remedies.


 

Naturopathy or antibiotics-What do I choose and why?

Naturopathy is a traditional healing system that has been used throughout the ages and is now backed by outstanding clinical research. Naturopathy can not only shorten the length and intensity of immune complaints but also help to ward them off in the first place.


 

Naturopathy helps to build natural immunity by bringing ones overall health and wellbeing into alignment.

 Historically Naturopaths would call your immune system your overall vitality and if you have a few too many health complaints in combination, say your digestion and immune system, then your vitality could be viewed as sub optimum. The good news is that Naturopathy has an amazing array of immune boosting herbs that can bring up your vitality in no time at all.

Some examples–

Mushroom extract –  mushrooms in the diet can  strengthen the immune system.

 Honey – a very strong antibiotic on the skin, and also its astringent properties helps to heal the cut.  one can apply  honey a couple of times to the stitches, then covered with a large band aid.

Garlic – antibiotic, anti-parasitic and antiseptic when consumed raw, and a boost to the immune system.

Coconut oil – contains lauric acid, medium chain fatty acids that are antifungal and antibiotic.  Coconut oil is awesome for keeping the skin around the stitches moist.

Naturopathy works to proved herbal and nutritional symptomatic relief but can also assist in boosting immunity against viruses and bacteria.


 

Homeopathic Alternatives to Antibiotics-

Your child is restless all night with a sore throat, cough and fever. You rush your child to the Doctor next morning and the Doctor prescribes an Antibiotic. A few days later, your child is well again. Actually, was it the Antibiotic that helped or did the ailment merely run its course? In another scenario, you have a sinus infection or a bladder infection, and you are prescribed an Antibiotic, after you discontinue the Antibiotic, your symptoms come back, and your Doctor recommends another course of a stronger Antibiotic. Before you recognize, you are taking different Antibiotics for extended periods.

Antibiotics are the leading prescribed drugs and have become a major part of the treatment modality in modern medicine today.


 

Homoeopathy:a better substitute to antibiotics- It i an effective alternate to antibiotics in infectious diseases, producing no toxic side effects & bringing about rapid recovery. Infectious diseases such as sinusitis, tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, otitis media, gastroenteritis, dysentry, urinary infections, respond well to homoeopathy.


 

Homeopathic medicine actually gained its greatest popularity primarily due to its impressive successes in the treatment of infectious diseases in the19th century.

 

What is so different about homeopathy?

Homeopathic medicines are not just composed with different medicinal ingredients, and they are not just the use of smaller doses of medicines. Homeopathy represents a different approach to understanding disease and health.

What also makes homeopathy different (and sometimes more difficult) than conventional medicine is that homeopathic medicines are not prescribed to treat a specific or localized disease but are prescribed to treat specific syndromes of symptoms of which one’s disease is just one part.

In other words, two people may have the common cold, but one would have a thin watery nasal disease that irritates the nostrils, frequent  sneezing, and a headache, all of which are aggravated by warmth. The other would have thick yellowish nasal discharge that doesn’t irritate the nostrils, nasal congestion alternating with nasal discharge, a cough that is relieved in the open air, and no thirst.


 

In Homeopathy, there is no Antibiotic or Anti viral remedy, because every correctly prescribed Homeopathic remedy has the potential of strengthening a person’s immune system that helps to fight any bacterial or viral infection.

Homeopathy has several advantages, which make it, a preferred alternative over conventional Antibiotics. It is safe with no side effects, does not suppress the immune system


 

Self – care –Measures along with Homeopathic remedies during an active infection:

  • Eliminate caffeine, alcohol, sugar, dairy, refined foods.

  • Eat lightly.

  • Be well hydrated.

  • Drink warm beverages, like herbal teas.

  • Juice fasting can help during an infection.

  • Strengthen your immune system with yoghurt, foods rich in Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, and zinc.

  • Colon cleansing can help.

  • Steam baths can help detoxify your system during infections.

  • Massage can speed up elimination of toxins, particularly a foot massage.

  • Relax and get enough rest.

  • Local application of turmeric can help skin infections.

  • Hot ginger tea for throat infections.Have a positive mental attitude.


 

Hence, to summarize, Antibiotics are an interesting group of medications, however, they tend to be over prescribed and toxic. They must be utilized as a last option, not the first.


 

The use of Homeopathy as a possible alternative to Antibiotics would be more favorable, harmless and cost-effective.

Obesity : Hazards and Homoeopathic Management

Obesity : Hazards and Homoeopathic Management

Homeopathy and obesity – Obesity means having too much body fat. It is not the same as being overweight, which means weighing too much. A person may be overweight from extra muscle, bone, or water, as well as from having too much fat.

In general, women collect fat in their hips and buttocks, giving their figures a “pear” shape. Men, on the other hand, usually collect fat around the belly, giving them more of an “apple” shape.

India is now in the grip of an obesity epidemic and the trend needs to be immediately arrested by taxing junk food, restricting food ads and making food labelling clearer, according to a study. Currently, almost 1 in 5 men and over 1 in 6 women are overweight.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors—-

Taking in more calories than you burn can lead to obesity because the body stores unused calories as fat. Obesity can be caused by:

  1. Eating more food than your body can use

  2. Drinking too much alcohol

  3. Not getting enough exercise

     

.MIHe8FI


 

Today, we know that biology is a big reason why some people cannot keep the weight off. Some people who live in the same place and eat the same foods become obese, while others do not. Our bodies have a complex system to help keep our weight at a healthy level.


 

We are surrounded by things that make it easy to overeat and hard to stay active:

  1. Many people do not have time to plan and make healthy meals.

People with obesity are at risk for these health problems:

  1. Bone and joint problems -Excess weight puts extreme pressure on your joints, sometimes causing inflammation in the joints (known as arthritis). Obesity is also a factor in osteoarthritis a form of arthritis that is caused by wear and tear on the joints

  2. Gallstones – Obesity causes the liver to secrete excessive amounts of a fluid called bile, which is stored in the gallbladder. Bile is necessary for the body to digest fats. But an overproduction of bile sets the stage for the formation of gallstone.

  3. Liver problems.

  4. Heartattack from coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, and stroke.

5. Highblood cholesterol and triglycerides (dislipidemia or high blood fats).

Sometimes, medical problems or treatments cause weight gain, including:

  1. Underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism)

  2. Medicines such as birth control pills, antidepressants, and antipsychotics

  3. Other things that can cause weight gain are:

  4. Quitting smoking. Most people who quit smoking gain 4 – 10 pounds in the first 6 months after quitting. Some people gain as much as 25 – 30 pounds.

  5. Stress, anxiety, feeling sad, or not sleeping well


 

For women: Menopause — women may gain 12-15 pounds during menopause and not losing the weight they gained during pregnancy.


 

The two most common ways to measure health risks from your weight are:-

Body mass index (BMI),Waist circumference (your waist measurement in inches).

BMI is measured using height and weight. You and your health care provider can use your BMI to estimate how much body fat you have.

The World Health Organization uses a classification system using the BMI to define overweight and obesity.

  1. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is defined as a “pre-obese.”

  2. A BMI of 30 to 34.99 is defined as “obese class I.”

  3. A BMI of 35 to 39.99 is defined as “obese class II.”

  4. A BMI of or greater than 40.00 is defined as “obese class III.”


 

Treatment-

CHANGING YOUR LIFESTYLE

An active lifestyle and regular exercise, along with healthy eating, is the best way to lose weight. Even modest weight loss can improve your health. You will need a lot of support from family and friends.

When dieting, your main goal should be to learn new, healthy ways of eating and make them a part of your daily routine.

Many people find it hard to change their eating habits and behaviors. You may have practiced some habits for so long that you may not even know they are unhealthy, or you do them without thinking. You need to be motivated to make lifestyle changes. Make the behavior change part of your life over the long term. Know that it takes time to make and keep a change in your lifestyle.

Work with your health care provider and dietitian to set realistic, safe daily calorie counts that help you lose weight while staying healthy. Remember that if you drop pounds slowly and steadily, you are more likely to keep them off. Your dietitian can teach you about:

  1. Healthy food choices,Healthy snacks,Sweetened drinks,How to read the nutrition labels.

  2. Blood tests may be done to look for thyroid or hormone problems that could lead to weight gain.

  3. New ways to prepare food.

  4. A modest weight loss of 5%-10% of the initial weight, and long-term maintenance of that weight loss can bring significant health gains, including

  5. Lowered blood pressure reduced blood levels of cholesterol;reduced risk of type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes (In the Nurses Health Study, women who lost 5 kilograms (11 pounds) of weight reduced their risk of diabetes by 50% or more.);Decreased chance of stroke;decreased complications of heart disease;decreased overall mortality.

  6. Learn new ways to manage stress, rather than snacking. Examples may be meditation, yoga, or exercise. If you are depressed or stressed a lot, talk to your health care provider.


 

MEDICATIONS AND HERBAL REMEDIES

You may see ads for supplements and herbal remedies that claim they will help you lose weight. Many of these claims are not true, and some of these supplements can have serious side effects. Talk to your health care provider before using them.

Several prescription weight loss drugs are available. Most people lose between 5 and 10 pounds by taking these drugs. Most people also regain the weight when they stop taking the medicine, unless they have made lasting lifestyle changes, such as exercising and cutting unhealthy foods from their diet.


 

HOMOEOPATHY AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT- There are a lot of treatment options and remedies available in the market for obesity. But almost all of them are associated with serious side effects and toxicity except homeopathy. In homeopathy there are around 180 remedies for obesity. The choice of remedy depends upon the complete case history of the patient.

For example, Fucus v is chose by a homeopath when the patient also has thyroid problem and is constipation. Phytolacca berry is chosen when we have to increase the metabolic rate. And Calcarea carbonicum if the patient is fair, fatty and flabby with depression and constipation. So, in homeopathy the choice of remedy depends upon the complete symptomatology of the patient.


 

In medical practice I use the homeopathic program for obesity or weight management. This program consists of  Cs –

1 .Change– Use smaller plates, do not read or watch TV while eating, chew every bite twenty times.

2.Control– The right homeopathic remedy with a help of a professional homeopath to control obesity.

3.Cleanse– Drink lots of water. Yoga /Exercise atleast 45 minutes daily. All the above mobilize the accumulated toxic substances in the body to be washed away.

4.Caloric Reduction– Eat lots of green leafy vegetables and fruits with high fibre content and low calories and sugar.

Thus, homeopathy offers a safe, long lasting and holistic solution for fat loss in obese people. The remedies are composed of natural elements in minuscule doses with absolutely no side effects.

Homeopathy For Infertility

Homeopathy For Infertility

Most couples who get married intend to go the family route sooner or later. However, for those who have been trying sexual intercourse for more than 6 months without any contraceptive aids and still have not succeeded in having a baby, the underlying cause may be infertility in one or both partners. Infertility affects up to 15% of couples trying to conceive and have a baby.

Infertility, in medical terms, refers to a person’s biological inability to contribute to conception. There are many biological causes that may make this happen, some of which can be medically corrected. 

The Homeopathic Approach to Treat Infertility:

The homeopathic approach towards the management of health problems is constitutional. The treatment takes into account the presenting complaints - the symptoms - along with the unique physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. Homeopathic medicines act at the roots of all ailments. They can rectify deviations of the hormonal system and get them back to normalcy. The simple homeopathic procedure effectively and efficiently avoids complicated procedures that follow the common treatments of infertility. More specifically, the complete hormonal harmony greatly increases the chances of conception without the harmful and/or painful side effects of medications, devices and invasive procedures. The biggest advantage of homeopathic treatment is that even after the treatment, the high sperm count is maintained. The medicines involved are easy to take, since there are only sweet pills and drops.

The homeopath plans the medication separately for every individual, by understanding his or her physical, as well as emotional and mental or spiritual imbalances. That is why this system becomes an excellent option for those seeking help with this issue, as it addresses health on a deep holistic level. The homeopath carefully prescribes the medicine that works on the real cause of infertility, along with other symptoms like any type of pain, stress, etc.

There are no prerequisites to start a homeopathy treatment for infertility. Anyone who just came to know about their infertility problem or those who have tried other infertility treatments without any results can consult a homeopath. Homeopathy medicines can also be used with other treatment methods, but the homeopath should be informed about it to prevent any interfering actions.

Final Tips For Infertility Treatments Using Homeopathy:

Homeopathy therapy works on male and female infertility in following way:

  1. It regulates and balances the body’s hormones, menstrual cycle and enhances the ovulation process in females.
  2. In males, it helps to increase the sperm count, their mobility and also their morphology by naturally stimulating the body.
  3. It helps with emotional blockages, disturbances and ambiguous thought processes that may affect fertility.
  4. It helps with the stress, anxiety and depression problems for those who are trying to conceive.
  5. It also helps in curing the side-effects of various other fertility treatments.

The homeopathic treatment for infertility is strictly individualistic. Whatever the reason that the patient opts for homeopathy, the treatment should be supported by a healthy diet and proper lifestyle, like avoiding alcohol and smoking. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.
