Can Homeopathy Treat Gallbladder Stone?

Homeopathy can very well dissolve gall stones of small and medium sizes, and relieve the gall bladder and body permanently from the pain, suffering and complications coming from gall stones. One of the benefits of homeopathic treatment for gall stones is that your gall bladder does not need removal, and being an important organ for producing digestive enzymes, it is better to keep it in your body. The other benefit is that you get a side effect-free treatment, which is completely efficient and practical, and costs really low compared to other modes of treatments and surgeries.

But before one goes for a homeopathic treatment, a complete evaluation of the patient’s case history must be done so that the right medicine can be given as per the case, history, severity etc. Here is a quick look at the commonly used homeopathic medicines, which doctors, depending on your case history, may prescribe for your gall stone.

Homeopathic medicines used for treating gall stones

  1. Calcarea carbonica: If you have a family history of kidney and gall stones, are anxious and slow, overweight with high deposits of triglycerides and cholesterol, then you would be given this medicine.
  2. Chelidonium: If you get pain in any or both of the two patterns pain originating under your right shoulder blade and pain in the upper right abdomen, which spreads to the back, you will be prescribed this one.
  3. Lycopodium: This medicine is usually recommended in case you have a family history of stones in kidney and gall bladder, along with other complications like, chronic digestive disorders, high cholesterol, gastric problems, constipation, peptic ulcers, gas and bloating. The patient may usually get biliary colic pains late in the afternoon. He or she may also get irritated easily, and hate contradicting opinions.
  4. Natrum sulphuricum: The patient may have any or some of the problems like chronic diarrhea, gall stone pain, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, obesity and problem in joints. On top of that the patient may be too sensitive to changes in humidity and weather. In such a case, Natrum sulphuricum is given.
  5. Nux vomica: If a patient suffers from nausea, colic pains, spasmodic pains, heartburn and acidity, gas and bloating, and takes too much of rich and oily food and drinks, then this medicine is used to treat gall stones for him or her.

As you can see, there is a remedy for all types of patients. Hence in case of small to medium sized gall stones, you can always retain the gall bladder, avoid surgeries, and keep patience with systematic homeopathic treatment from an expert doctor. You will get positive results soon. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Neem Oil (Neem ka Tel) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - नीम के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान

नीम स्वाद में कड़वा होता है पर यह औषधीय गुणों से भरपूर होता है. औषधीय उपयोग में नीम के सभी हिस्से का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. औषधीय इस्तेमाल के अलावा नीम का प्रयोग सौन्दर्य प्रसाधनों के निर्माण में भी किया जाता है. नीम में ओलिक और लिनोलिक एसिड जैसे फैटी एसिड पाए जाते हैं जो हमारे त्वचा के लिए फायदेमंद होते हैं. नीम के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान आगे दिये जा रहे हैं.
1. बालों के लिए
नीम का उपयोग बालों को स्वस्थ और सुन्दर बनाने में भी किया जाता है. नीम के तेल का इस्तेमाल बालों में लगाने के लिए किया जा सकता है. इसके लिए इसमें बादाम या नारियल के तेल मिलाकर उपयोग किया जा सकता है.
2. सफाई के लिए
नीम का तेल जीवाणुरोधी होता है जिस कारण कपड़ों, गद्दों, और कालीनों की सफाई के लिए भी इसका उपयोग किया जाता है. जीवाणुओं की सफाई करने के लिए इसे धोने वाले डिटर्जेंट में मिलाकर साफ करना चाहिए.
3. एंटीएजिंग के रूप में
उच्चस्तरीय एंटीऑक्सिडेंट से भरपूर होने के कारण नीम त्वचा को बाहरी पर्यावरणीय नुकसान से बचाता है. नीम में पाया जाने वाला एंटीऑक्सिडेंट मुक्त कणों को नष्ट करके हमारे त्वचा की रक्षा करता है. नीम के तेल में फैटी एसिड और विटामिन सी भी पाया जाता है जो त्वचा में पड़ने वाली झुर्रियों को रोककर वृद्धावस्था के लक्षणों को भी रोकता है.
3. घाव भरने में
नीम के तेल का उपयोग घाव को भरने के लिए भी किया जाता है. इसके लिए एक और पांच के अनुपात में नीम का तेल और वेसेलिन मिलाकर इसे घावों या कटे पर लगाना चाहिए, इससे घाव तो भरते ही हैं साथ ही वहां पर जीवाणु भी नहीं पनपते हैं.
4. मुंहासे हटाने के लिए
नीम के तेल में एस्पिरिन नामक एक यौगिक पाया जाता है जो त्वचा से जीवाणुओं को नष्ट करने का काम करता है. नीम में पाया जाने वाला फैटी एसिड मुंहासे के निशान को ख़त्म करने का काम करता है. इसके अलावा अशुद्धियों को हटाने के लिए इसे फेस मास्क के रुप में भी इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है.
5. जूं हटाने के लिए
बाल के जूं हटाने में भी नीम के तेल लाभकारी होते हैं. इसके लिए नीम का तेल रात में सर में लगाकर सो जाना चाहिए. सुबह में जूं हटाने वाले कंघी से बालों को कंघी करना चाहिए.
6. पौधों के संरक्षण में
पौधों के संरक्षण में भी नीम के तेल का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. इसके लिए एक स्प्रे बोतल में बर्तन साफ करने वाले तरल व नीम के तेल के तेल भर लेना चाहिए फिर पौधों पर स्प्रे करना चाहिए.
7. रुसी हटाने में
अधिकांश लोग रुसी के समस्या से परेशान रहते हैं. रूसी दूर करने के लिए शैम्पू में नीम का तेल मिलाकर इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है. नीम के तेल से बालों के वृद्धि और विकास में भी मदद मिलती है.
8. एक्जीमा के उपचार में
नीम में एंटी फंगल गुण पाया जाता है जो हमारे त्वचा से दाद और नाख़ून में फंगल जैसी समस्याओं को दूर करता है. एक्जीमा जैसी त्वचा की समस्याओं को दूर करने में भी नीम के तेल फायदेमंद होता है.
9. पिगमेंटेशन के लिए
नीम का तेल त्वचा में मेलेनिन का उत्पादन धीमा करके पिगमेंटेशन को घटा देता है और त्वचा को साफ़ व सुन्दर बनाने में मददगार साबित होता है. नीम के तेल के नियमित उपयोग से ऐसा हो सकता है.
10. मच्छर भगाने के लिए
मच्छर से बचाव के लिए भी नीम के तेल का उपयोग किया जा सकता है. इसके लिए जिस पानी से मच्छर उत्पन्न होने की सम्भावना रहती है उसमें नीम का तेल मिला देने से मच्छर नहीं पनपते हैं.
नीम के तेल का नुकसान

  • नीम का तेल कुछ कुछ लोगों में एलर्जी जैसी समस्याओं को जन्म दे सकता है.
  • कुछ हद तक नीम के तेल में गर्भंनिरोधक गुण भी पाये जाते हैं.
  • नीम का तेल छोटे बच्चों के लिए सुरक्षित नहीं है इसलिए इसे बच्चों से दूर ही रखें.

My daughter (now 20 years old) has stubborn fat which will not go by dieting or normal exercise. She is in college and has lot of work and cannot spend a lot of time for rigorous exercise. Are there any REALISTIC treatments for this to remove the initial stubborn fat and then later she can maintain by lifestyle changes.

Dear Lybrate User... Your daughter can definitely be fitter with lesser weight. It needs some time and proper guidance. 1. There is no such thing as 'stubborn fat'. Body fat is just fat. 2. Extra fat is a deposit which has accumulated due to imbalance in food and activity. 3. In our households we keep force-feeding / over-feeding our children to make them look 'chubby' .....but one fine day when they grow up... we realise they are overweight and we look for instant solutions to quickly remove that fat. 4. You need to alter the way food is cooked and served at home. 5. Oils - Cut down all fried and oily food.. Per person per day oil limit is 4 teaspoons. This includes any type of oil/ghee total. 5A. Cut down all puris, parathas, pakodas, papads etc which consume too much oil. 6. Sugar - per person per day 4 teaspoons only. 7. These have to be strictly measured on a daily basis and then you will realise how much excess oil/sugar is being consumed. 8. Focus on creating fruit salads, veg salads, sprout salads. These should be available at all times. Increase consumption of all types of fruits. 9. Don't keep any mixture / namkeen / chocolates / biscuits / cakes in the house. 10. Eat simple meals, avoid ordering from outside / eating out 11. Just guide your daughter to follow these guidelines even at college because the college kids consume a lot of junk food, chips, colas, chocolates... which accumulates as fat in the body. 12. She has to find time for at least 30 minutes everyday for exercise / walk / yoga or gym. If a young person does not work out for at least 30 minutes, they would face health problems later. Such things must become lifelong habits. 13. It is good that you are trying to help out your daughter... For this the food habits and exercise habits of the entire household members have to change. 14. Nature has the best answers for health. 15. Keep striving. Never give up

How Homeopathy Can Treat Menopause?

BHMS, Dr. Hari Singh Gaur Central University, Sagar

How Homeopathy Can Treat Menopause?

The disruption of the normal female cycles of menstruation and ovulation after the age of 45 and the loss of her ability to conceive naturally is known as menopause. The associated symptoms of menopause are heat flushes, insomnia, weight gain, depression, nausea and fatigue. While hormone replacement therapy is the most common procedure to provide relief from menopausal symptoms, natural homeopathic remedies can also be used for the same. These remedies are completely safe as opposed to hormone replacement therapy which has a number of side effects. The following homeopathic medicines and remedies can be used to treat menopause:

1.        A balanced diet which provides you with optimal nutrition can be helpful in treating menopausal symptoms. When you get enough vitamins and minerals, the physical discomfort caused by the symptoms can be reduced greatly.

2.        Phosphorus can help with migraines, extreme sweating, numb hands, fast pulse, memory problems and dry and itchy skin. Foods high in phosphorus content are meat, fish, cheese, nuts and seeds of pumpkins, sunflowers etc.

3.        Excessive deposition of fat can interfere with the hormonal cycles and cause imbalances in the level of estrogen and progesterone. So, regular yoga and exercise can be helpful.

4.        Amylenum nitrosum can provide relief from profuse sweating, shortness of breath and palpitations.

5.        Phytoestrogen or dietary estrogen is a compound found in foods such as soybeans, oats, barley, carrots, fenugreek, rice etc. Phytoestrogen can provide natural relief from menopausal symptoms.

6.        Aurum metallicum is used to get the tissues and organs to function normally again and control feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia.

7.        Aconitum napellus (wolf's bane) is a flowering plant and its extracts can reduce panic attacks, heat flushes, over excitability and depressive symptoms.

8.        Argentum nitricum is a nitrate compound of silver which is used to control excessive bleeding in the pre-menstrual stages.

9.        Belladonna (deadly nightshade) is beneficial for a large number of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, insomnia, frequent urination, osteoporosis, abnormal weight gain and other nervous disorders.

10.        Bryonia alba, a flowering plant, is used as a remedy for vaginal infections, rashes and vaginal dryness that are common during menopause.

11.        Natrum muriaticum, in small amounts, helps to reduce stress. Stress can cause problems in thyroid function, cognitive functioning, digestive system functioning and it can elevate blood pressure levels rapidly.

12.        Nux vomica (strychnine) is a common homeopathic medicine for nausea, vomiting and indigestion. These problems are seen frequently in menopausal women, especially after meals at night.

Healthiest Butter Substitute Options!

Healthiest Butter Substitute Options!

Healthiest butter substitute options

1. Coconut oil and coconut butter

Coconut oil may be getting a bit of a bad rap lately with new studies that have been published by the american heart association claiming it’s unhealthy to eat. In moderation, though, coconut oil is a healthy choice — perhaps the problem is people are overdoing it. 

However, it’s delicious to cook with and makes a great spread on muffins or toast. Equally, it’s great in homemade recipes, such as my energy balls. Like coconut oil, coconut butter is delicious and can add just the right sweetness and toasty coconut flavor to most any dish.

2. Shea butter

Yes, you read that right. Shea butter does more than help promote healthy skin. It’s an alternative to butter and often used instead of cocoa butter. It’s edible and filled with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin e.

If you’re a label-reader, you’ve probably noticed it in the ingredients list of some dark chocolate treats. You can simply use a small amount of shea butter in place of regular butter in just about anything. Make sure to purchase pure, unrefined versions, and I suggest purchasing small amounts as it tend to go rancid quickly.

3. Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter is another alternative to butter and is considered a healthy fat. It’s used to make chocolate and is high in antioxidants, providing amazing polyphenols. According to one study, the polyphenols are so great that it may actually help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. 

Some of the other benefits are improved immunity and lowering inflammation within the body. Like shea butter, make sure to get 100 percent pure versions with no additives. Try using it in baking instead of regular butter.

4. Mashed avocado

Mashed avocado is one of my favorite healthy fats, and with the recent popularity of avocado toast, i’m not the only one who loves it. Avocado makes a nice spread when mashed, is delicious on eggs and adds an amazing creaminess to your smoothie, all while offering the nutritional benefits of fiber and loads of phytonutrients. Additionally, research has shown it may help reduce the growth of cancer cells and inflammation. 

5. Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite ways to flavor just about anything and is part of a healthy mediterranean diet. It’s typically made from chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini as the main ingredients, offering tons of fiber, protein, vitamin b6 and other nutritional benefits, but it can be made from black beans, lentils and even vegetables. It’s a great topping on sauteed vegetables, eggs, mixed greens or as a snack with raw vegetables. Hummus is commonly eaten with pita triangles, but you can skip the bread and opt for celery if you’re watching your wheat and gluten intake.

6. Extra virgin olive oil

Extra virgin olive oil is a great way to add a little flavor to sourdough bread, toast or grilled meat, to name a few. While you don’t need much, it’s a great way to gain some added benefits, such as lowering inflammation, the risk of heart disease, depression and dementia.

With all of that in mind, unfortunately, not all olive oil is created equally. Just make sure you get the real thing; there is a lot of fake olive oil out there. Watch out for virgin olive oil that costs less than $10 a liter, look for a seal from the international olive oil council and check for a harvesting date on the label. Additionally, if it’s labeled light, pure or a blend, it isn’t real, pure virgin olive oil. 

7. Applesauce

Applesauce is great for baking or to add a little flavor to your oatmeal or chia pudding. You get fiber, vitamin c and that perfect touch of sweetness without a lot of calories. There’s some sugar to think about, however. Read the label and be conscious of how much you use. Try spreading thinly or mix it with a little nut butter for a delicious, healthy blend. 

8. Dairy-free yogurt

Dairy-free yogurt, such as coconut yogurt or almond yogurt, blended with a little cinnamon can be delicious on toast. There are many of options out there for anyone who really needs to watch dairy consumption. Dairy-free yogurt can be a great alternative and helps strengthen bones.

Regardless, watch the label. I cannot stress this enough, especially with new foods popping up everywhere trying to cash in on a trend, such as no dairy. Most of the dairy-free options still have added sugar and more. You can easily find the plain, no-sugar versions if you look for them, however. Go for those and you can create an amazingly, healthy, dairy-free chia pudding, use it on your favorite mexican dish like sour cream and more. Also, many have the probiotics that can help treat leaky gut.

9. Chicken stock, vegetable stock and bone broth

Chicken stock, vegetable stock and bone broth are great for sautéing. You won’t even miss the butter! the stock or broth can help keep foods juicy and tender while adding delicious flavor and nutrients, even helping with digestion, arthritis and cellulite while boosting the immune system.

10. Nut butters

Nut butters, such as almond butter, cashew butter and peanut butter, are great on celery sticks, bananas, toast or even a vegetable sauté for a quick and easy thai dish. Almond butter, for example, contains vitamin e, iron and magnesium.

The key here is to be conscious of just how much. Two tablespoons is a serving, which comes in at about 180 calories. Also, you need to read labels since most add tons of sugar and oils. Either grind your own or purchase those that contain nuts only. Sea salt is fine, but avoid added oils and sugars.

11. Pumpkin puree

Pumpkin puree is a great option to add to plain yogurt, breads, coffee cakes and muffins. You gain nutrients like vitamin k, potassium and fiber with just a few extra calories. Use ¾ cup of pumpkin puree for every cup of butter called for in a recipe.

12. Nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast is often forgotten but is great for seasoning most anything if you want a cheesy flavor. It also contains nutritional benefits, such as being an immune booster and contains protein, b6 and b12, making it a vegan must-have. It’s quite the superfood, but what is nutritional yeast? it’s an inactive yeast made from sugarcane and beet molasses. It’s found in most health food stores on the shelf or in the bulk section, typically as a powder of flakes.
