Homeopathy Treatment for Appendicitis

MD - Homeopathy, Masters Degree of Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Mumbai
Homeopathy Treatment for Appendicitis

Appendicitis is a chronic or acute medical condition where the appendix gets inflamed and causes severe pain.  If left untreated, the condition can prove to be fatal. The appendix is a small tube shaped sac at the end of the large intestine. In humans, it is typically not known to have any functional value although some studies suggest that it helps digestion by creating a conducive environment for friendly bacteria. Surgical removal of the appendix is suggested as the most common treatment for the ailment.

One of the key causes of appendicitis is believed to be the partial or complete obstruction at the mouth of the appendix. The common causes of obstruction include accumulation of fecal matter, worms, enlarged lymphoid follicles, trauma or tumors. It is also possible that an infection in the stomach could have extended into the appendix.

Appendix is commonly detected because of its progressive worsening pain in the stomach which narrows down to the lower right side of the abdomen is called Mc Burney point. Half of the patients though do not have this typical symptom and instead come in with a complaint of gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection or even a kidney stone. Further blood tests, urine tests and MRIs or ultrasounds are used to pinpoint the area causing the pain.

In most cases of advance appendix, a surgical intervention is necessary. The type of surgery will vary on a case to case basis.

Homeopathy can be tried in early stages and is especially useful to treat chronic and recurrent cases. It works with the principle of 'like cures like', which means that the elements that cause the problem are a key to its solution too. It employs a holistic healing methodology getting rid of the signs and symptoms and restoring complete health. While other treatments focus on curing the 'problem', homeopathy also deals with the basic reason of the problem and the individual's susceptibility to it. Here are some of the remedies:

  1. Arsenicum album: This is used when the appendicitis has resulted in sepsis and the patient also suffers from diarrhea.
  2. Belladonna: This is an early stage remedy for cases where appendicitis is accompanied by headache, fever
  3. Bryonia alba: This is an effective remedy when the pain aggravates with movement. 
  4. Colocynthis: This is a recommended remedy when the patient experiences spasmodic or entwining pain, which worsens with indigestion. Applying warm pressure over the area helps in such cases
  5. Rhus Tox: This remedy is also called the 'homeopathic knife' to treat appendicitis. It is used when the pain is constant and the patient is never free from pain.

To customize the selection of the remedies according to your specific symptoms, it is best to consult with a practitioner.

Hi, Ovulation occurs between 12th-15th day of a 28-30 day menstrual cycle. Being sexually active daily between 10th - 16th day of a menstrual cycle increases the chances of conception.

Hi , 11th day after period falls in fertile phase, so chances of getting pregnancy are higher. If you don't want pregnancy, you still can have ipill/ unwanted pill 72, an emergency pill if you have not crossed the 72 hours limit yet.

I had unprotected sex but after 30 min I took unwanted 72 are there chances of having ectopic pregnancy.

MBBS, DGO
Obstetrician, Pune
I had unprotected sex but after 30 min I took unwanted 72 are there chances of having ectopic pregnancy.
It can not be said that whether any chance of ectopic or not. But yes there is definetly very less chance of pregnancy it self if you have taken unwanted 72. But if failure happen than you can not say whether it is going to be normal or ectopic pregnancy. Both are different things and not much correlated. Yes theoraticaly there is more chance of ectopic pregnancy while on tablets. But you just had one hormonal tablets so there is further more less chance. So don't worry. Wait for your menses and if not comes than do urine pregnancy test and confirm. Yes it can delay your menses or even menses can be irregular while you take unwanted 72. You can bleed within 3 to 4 days for 1 day due to unwanted 72 and than again you may have your period. This may happen or may not. It depends on day of you cycle and levels of hormones (Chemicals) in your body. Mostly you will get your period. And there is less chance of ectopic than normal couple having unprotected sex without unwanted 72.

Dengue - Can You Prevent Yourself from it?

MBBS

Dengue - Can You Prevent Yourself from it?

Dengue is caused from the bite of the ‘Aedes Aegypti’ mosquito. This mosquito has been known to breed and survive in tropical and subtropical regions. A waterborne disease, it causes extreme discomfort and pain, even death is a possibility. Statistics suggest that each year, the number of people afflicted with dengue is around 390 million. Out of this huge number, 96 million tend to develop severe illnesses wherein hospitalization becomes mandatory.

Causes

  1. It is primarily caused due to the bite of the ‘Aedes aegypti’ mosquito.

  2. A mosquito becomes infected with dengue if it bites an already infected person. The disease can be transmitted to any healthy person that this infected mosquito bites next.

  3. Living near a stagnant water body or an open drain makes you the most vulnerable to this disease. Letting water accumulate in open containers or spaces over a period of time makes it the perfect breeding ground for all types of mosquitoes.

Symptoms

On being infected, the symptoms generally last for around 10 days. Some of the common symptoms are:

  1. Excruciating pain behind the eyes

  2. Severe headache

  3. Sudden high fever with chills

  4. Vomiting

  5. Fatigue

  6. Skin rash which generally appears two to five days after you get infected

  7. Nose bleeding, easy bruising and bleeding gums

  8. Severe muscle and joint pain

It should be noted that these symptoms can be easily mistaken for high fever or any other viral infection. Therefore, getting tested as soon as these symptoms start appearing is very important.

If the dengue is left untreated or not treated on time, it can result in dengue haemorrhagic fever. This condition causes nose bleeding (due to damage to the blood vessels), high fever and failure of the circulatory system as well as the enlargement of liver.

Ways to prevent dengue include

  1. Avoid storing water in containers

  2. Wear clothes that cover your whole body, if possible

  3. Maintain hygiene and clean your immediate surrounding frequently

  4. Use mosquito repellent

  5. Use a mosquito net around your bed

In worst case scenarios, death is a possibility as a result of dengue haemorrhagic fever or dengue shock. Many countries consider dengue to be an epidemic. You need to be on complete bed rest while drinking adequate amounts of fluids if you need to recuperate from dengue.

Treatment

There is no specific antiviral medication that is available for the treatment of dengue. In general, Acetaminophen (paracetamol) is usually recommended for treating fever and pain associated with dengue. Medications such as Aspirin, other salicylates and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) must be avoided. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Tumours always do not cause problems in conception. There may be some problems in other parts of you or your husband. Get the diagnosis and treat it first.

In pcod, to get pregnant, clomiphene citrate (tablet you r receiving) to be started from day 3 of menstrual cycle and egg growth to be monitored by follicular scan. This is the normal course of treatment initially for any woman with infertility with pcod. All these medicines will work only if your weight is under control with diet, exercise and metformin (only if you are overweight).

Healthy Eating Tip
Choose whole foods: as often as possible, whether food shopping or dining out, keep whole foods over processed foods as your main choice. For example, buy fresh chicken breast over the frozen breaded cutlets. At a restaurant, order steamed broccoli instead of the creamed spinach.

It is not necessary that if periods are regular they are ovulatory specially in your case. You need ovulation induction with medication and follicular growth study scans to conceive fast.

If you had regular period after the intercourse and the ipill, it is unlikely that you are pregnant, so you need not fear. Taste and vomiting do not directly indicate the presence or absence of pregnancy.

How to participate in sex can you please tell me some better sex tips to get conceive soon ?
To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.
