Sexual Abuse In Children - Homeopathy Treatment For It!

Sexual Abuse In Children - Homeopathy Treatment For It!

Sexual abuse of children may sound very scary and degrading, but the truth is it is a very prevalent problem. As much we may not want to believe, the number of boys and girls who are sexually abused, and that too by close family and friends is very high. This may be difficult to digest, but is the truth. The sexual abuse in male and female children is 50% in each group which is again unbelievable but true.

What is considered child sexual abuse?

Child sexual abuse includes touching and non-touching activity. Some examples of touching activity include:

  1. touching a child's genitals or private parts for sexual pleasure.
  2. making a child touch someone else's genitals, play sexual games or have sex putting objects or body parts (like fingers, tongue or penis) inside the vagina, in the mouth or in the anus of a child for sexual pleasure.

The thing to ponder, however, is that people who abuse children have a deeper problem. This could be due to a combination of social and psychological issues that the person is facing. Often helping identify the underlying problem could be a solution to the problem too, but this is rarely done. If you think a child could be subjected to abuse, look out for the following symptoms.

  1. A feeling of guilt or shame.
  2. Irritability and anger with minimal reasons.
  3. Mood swings, often uncommon in children.
  4. Feeling very isolated and sad.
  5. Very anxious and angry.
  6. Symptoms of withdrawal, not wanting to be left alone.
  7. Sleeplessness.
  8. Fatigue and pain in the back, legs.
  9. Loss of energy, appetite.
  10. Bruises (look out for these, which may not be in visible areas).

How to handle?

Given the fact that the offender is in close family and/or friends circle, the suspicion levels are quite low.

  1. The first step, therefore, is to open up and talk with either your parents or someone close.
  2. Look for support groups which can be very helpful.
  3. Do not be isolated though the urge is very strong.
  4. Build a daily schedule to ensure your routine continues (studies, work, etc.).
  5. Focus on exercise or other passions as they help you deviate your mind.
  6. Be sure to not be alone with the offender, stay in a group.
  7. Give out a strong message saying it is not acceptable, and do not keep quiet.

Homoeopathic remedies:

Homoeopathy can come rescue of the offender all well as the victim. If we see according to the point of view of who committed the crime, many reasons may come to the light and we can be treated accordingly. Usually, these criminals have a very painful and sad childhood. This could lead them to commit a crime like child abuse. 

The following are the medicines to treat such people with anti-social behaviour-

  1. Aur.
  2. Bar-C.
  3. Hyoscyamus.
  4. Stramonium.
  5. Merc.
  6. Tarentula.
  7. Med.
  8. Nux V.
  9. Syphilinear.

There are certain homoeopathic medicines which are helpful in the treatment of children who are victimized. The most common symptom is nightmares.

  1. Calc.carb. 
  2. Aloes. 
  3. Phosphorous. 
  4. Cechris. 
  5. Sepia. 
  6. Staphysagria. 

For treatment for actual physical and mental symptoms of the victim child, following homoeopathic medicines may help:

  1. Aconite. 
  2. Ignatia. 
  3. Arnica. 
  4. Staphysagria. 
  5. Calendula. 
  6. Nat. mur. 

Homeopathy is a safe and effective way to treat the victims as well as the culprits of sexual abuse. It focuses on the way patients have reacted to events and the personality of the patient. It helps to bring complete harmony of physical, mental and social well being.

Homeopathic Medicines for Treatment of Lichen Planus

Homeopathic Medicines for Treatment of Lichen Planus

Let us start with a brief introduction about homeopathy. We know about the regular treatments and drugs that focus on curing the diseases directly. However, homeopathy is an alternative to regular medicine. The science of homeopathy is based on the principle that the substances which induce symptoms in healthy individuals are the ones that would help cure the same symptoms of a person who is sick. This medical science was introduced by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Another principle of homeopathy is that the least amount of medication should be required to evoke the healing response in a body. Normal medications have been well known to cause numerous side effects, but homeopathy, on the other hand, puts the efforts to prevent the formation of any sort of side effect altogether.

Lichen Planus-

This is an immune system-triggered skin disorder. The most common symptoms of this disorder are:

  1. Occurrence of purple-coloured bumps with flat tops takes place on the skin or genitals.

  2. These bumps develop and also spread in a span of a few months.

  3. The rashes are itchy.

  4. Lacy white rashes occur in the mouth.

  5. Scabby blisters and thin white lines appear over these rashes.

Causes-

The exact reason of this disorder is not known. However, it is believed that this develops when the immune system wrongly attacks the mucous membrane or the skin. This disorder can also be genetic. However, it is not infectious. Also another reason for the cause of this disorder may be due to exposure to certain chemicals which act like allergens such as gold, diuretics, certain dyes, arsenic, antibiotics etc.

Homeopathic Treatment To Cure Lichen Planus-

Homeopathy offers research-proven and highly effective treatment for Lichen Planus which has been scientifically documented. Contrary to the conventional treatment, which is governed by the use of cortisone, homeopathic treatment is amazingly curative, safe and longer lasting.

The homeopathic treatment for Lichen Planus is based on the individual case study of the patient's disease, its cause, its spread, the area affected, the genetic tendency, mindset, etc. The treatment plans thus designed is addressed towards correcting the immune system, in turn treating Lichen Planus from within. Homeopathic Clinics and our online treatment platform for our global patients.

Treating Asthma With Homeopathy!!

BHMS, M.D.

Treating Asthma With Homeopathy!!

Asthma is a condition that severely affects the lungs. The airways become narrow and the lungs become inflamed. Its characteristic features include bronchospasm, reversible airflow obstruction and variable and recurring symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. This might be caused up to 2 to 3 times a day.

Causes:

  1. Daily use of Paracetamol
  2. Vaccines
  3. Daily use of antibiotics
  4. Caesarean sections
  5. Asthma in family

Asthma is usually triggered by:

  1. Tobacco Smoke
  2. Exercise
  3. Polluted or Poor air
  4. Cold Air
  5. Emotional Stress
  6. Allergies

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which tries to ‘cure’ this disease, instead of trying to provide symptomatic relief. While dealing with a case of asthma, a homeopath not only records the symptoms of the disease but also studies the medical history, family history, physical and psychological characteristics of a person. This helps to find the cause, the precipitating factors, and the hereditary tendency etc. Of special interest to a homeopath is the history of suppression of skin disease. Homeopaths believe that when there is a tendency or predisposition for a disease – it first manifests on the less vital organs, towards the periphery (like skin). If this manifestation is suppressed than the disease shifts inwards, towards the more vital organs (like lungs, heart, brain etc).

The fact that in children asthma is often preceded by eczema is observed by the allopaths also. This fact is written in all their textbooks of medicine. They say that children often ‘move-out’ of eczema and ‘move-into’ asthma. But they are unable to make a correlation. Homeopaths believe that the suppression of eczema with topical preparations, does not cure the disease/sensitivity of the person, it merely drives it inwards.

Now after ascertaining the symptoms and the cause, the homeopath tries to find a medicine which matches the symptoms as well as the general characteristics of the person. The medicine so selected is administered to the patient.

When a right medicine is given, the asthma disappears but the old eczema or skin rash reappears for some time, before finally disappearing itself. This reappearance of old symptoms is seen as a reversal of disease process and is considered a very good prognostic sign by homeopaths.

MEDICINES – There are lots of medicines in homeopathy for asthma symptoms and it is not possible to list them all here. Some of the common medicines are ars- alb, ipecac, lachesis, pulsatilla, spongia, sulphur, ignatia, antim-tart, hepar-sulph, nat-sulph, tuberculinum etc. The selection of medicine varies from patient to patient. Therefore, it is always recommended to consult a specialized homeopath for treating your individual case.
