This medicine is available in both tablet as well as oral solution form.

Foods to keep your ovaries healthy

The ovaries play a major role in the female reproduction system. They contain numerous follicles, each holding the capability to form a mature egg. Hence it is extremely important for you to keep your ovaries healthy. Healthy ovaries secrete the essential sex hormones required for reproduction. Here are a few food items you might consider consuming in order to keep your ovaries healthy:


1.        Foods rich in Vitamin A: Vitamin A is extremely important to keep your ovaries healthy. Vitamin A enables the ovaries to start the process of meiosis. Meiosis contributes to the production of eggs. Your diet must include small amounts of Vitamin A everyday. Some foods rich with vitamin A are carrots, cod liver oil, kale, eggs, milk, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, spinach, etc. 


2.        Food rich with selenium: Selenium is an extremely important mineral when it comes to the health of ovaries. It activates a group of enzymes called the glutathione peroxidases, which then perform the function of antioxidants. Hence, the mineral helps to protect your tissues for any kind of oxidative damage. Oxidative damages might cause an increase in the risk of suffering from genetic mutations which could eventually lead to cancer. It also helps to activate a protein called the Sep15 which has cancer fighting abilities. Selenium can also lower the risk of suffering from ovarian cancer. Foods like whole wheat bread, meat, Brazilian nuts, shellfish and eggs can supply you with the required amount of selenium. 


3.        Food rich in Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps prevent ovarian cancer. It provides a natural protection to the ovaries from any kind of diseases which might affect them, as Vitamin C helps to activate the immune cells which fight cancer. You will require a sufficient amount of Vitamin C to have proper functioning ovaries as it will help activate the genetic activity required for the development of the follicles. Try to include fresh sources of Vitamin C in your diet like strawberries, broccoli, red peppers, oranges, lemon, etc. 


To improve your ovarian health, make sure you include the above mentioned foods in your daily diet.

All about wart

What is a wart? benign epidermal proliferations or tumors out of which some are viral in origin. It can be located anywhere in the body.

Why does a wart develop? warts are a result of infection with the DNA human papillomavirus (HPV). Different subtypes appear to be responsible for several different clinical wart variants.

How does virus transmit? transmission is by direct contact with the virus, in either living skin or fragments of shed skin and is encouraged by trauma and moisture.

Clinical features: common warts appear initially as smooth, skin - coloured papules. As they enlarge, their surface becomes irregular and hyperkeratotic, producing the typical warty appearance. They are most common n hands but may also be seen on the face, neck, genitalia and sun-exposed surfaces of arm and leg. Multiple warts are common.

Types of warts?

 

  •     Common warts, which often appear on your fingers
  •     Plantar warts, which show up on the soles of your feet
  •     Genital warts, which are a sexually transmitted disease
  •      Flat warts, which appear in places you shave frequently


Management in children, warts often goes away on their own. In adults, they tend to stay. If they hurt or bother or if they multiply, they are removed by either chemical skin treatments, various freezing, surgical and laser treatments. But they usually tend to reoccur.

How does homoeopathy treat differently?

Homoeopathy in cases of warts and any such type of viral infections make the body capable of fighting against these viruses. It helps to boost our immune system which in turns fight against this virus. Once treated with homoeopathy, there are very minimal chances of relapse also. The homoeopathic drugs are given as per the constitution of the patient and location of warts. Some of the frequently used medicines as per the position of the warts are:

  •     On face and eyelid: caust, calc. C, nit ac
  •     On hands: kali mur
  •     On palm: nat m
  •     In crop, rough: thuja
  •     Sides of fingers: calc. C, caust, sep.
  •     Cauliflower like upper lip: nit. Ac
  •     Smooth and soft: ant c
  •     Back of hands and fingers: dulc.

  

Homoeopathy has successfully treated many cases of warts and has annihilated the tendency of wart formation also when taken under proper supervision and by a qualified doctor only. Homoeopathy is free of side effects when taken after doctor's advice only.

Vitiligo, also known as leucoderma, is a relatively common skin disorder, in which white spots or patches appear on the skin. These spots are caused by destruction or weakening of the pigment cells in those areas, resulting in the pigment being destroyed or no longer produced. In most cases, vitiligo is believed to be an autoimmune-related disorder. In vitiligo, only the colour of the skin is affected but texture and other skin qualities remain normal. The hair may also turn white that grows in areas affected by vitiligo.

It occurs when the melanocytes, cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or are unable to function. The precise cause of vitiligo is complex and not fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune,genetic, and environmental factors.


Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The medicines given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition. The symptoms listed against each medicine may not be directly related to this disease because in homeopathy general symptoms and constitutional indications are also taken into account for selecting a remedy.
