Hypothyroidism - Widespread Yet Elusive!

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
Hypothyroidism -  Widespread Yet Elusive!

Hypothyroidism: widespread yet elusive

Shrouded in misconceptions and blessed with simple and common early symptoms, hypothyroidism remains elusive. Be informed, watchful and you can seek early medical help 

Thyroid glands and the thyroid hormones control some of the most vital bodily functions in mammal bodies, including humans; thyroid glands control the metabolism. When one suffers from Hypothyroidism, thyroid glands are underactive producing less thyroid for the body. Initial symptoms may be as simple and common as fatigue, weakness and facial puffiness, however, if not treated early, hypothyroidism may progress into slow metabolism and general symptoms and health complications.

Common yet misunderstood

In 2014, a study by The Lancet and Indian Association of Endocrinology found that India had over 42 million incidences of thyroid disorders; hypothyroidism is most commonly prevalent. The study also found that hypothyroidism affected over the double the number of females (15%) compared to the males (6%). The most affected age group for both the sexes was between 40 and 53 years. The study also observes that incidence is higher among the hinterland populations compared to the populations living along the coast in India. At my clinic, hypothyroidism patients are the highest followed by patients with allergic rhinitis, PCOD, and diabetes.

Recognise hypothyroidism with symptoms

Besides the common symptoms mentioned earlier, prolonged thyroid failure may lead to several symptoms; they all may not appear in each patient, however, these are a few clinical features of the disorder. One may feel sleepy and drowsy all the time, gain weight as early signs. One may develop cold intolerance, and the voice may become hoarse. Anaemia, dry and flaky skin and hair, hair fall, are some of the commonly observed symptoms among hypothyroid patients. Tingling in palms and swollen feet are also seen among many patients. One may develop constipation. Ladies may face menstrual irregularities, the absence of menses, and males may develop infertility and impotence. Depression is also one of the clinical features of hypothyroidism.

Homoeopathy helps with hypothyroidism

A 19-year-old lady visited my clinic with a backache, leg pain and constipation. She also complained about irritability. She did not have a definitive diagnosis despite her longtime nature of the symptoms; however, her low weight at 35 kg at her height of 5 feet 4 inches alerted me. After an initial prescription of Aesculus, a detailed case taking revealed the young lady's family history – both her sisters suffered from hypothyroidism. After thyroid profiling, I prescribed her specific medicines considering her physical symptoms and psychological features. In the follow up a backache was gone, but constipation persisted. Higher potency of the medicine was given, and after a month her thyroid tests revealed all the levels were within the normal range. After six months of continued cautionary medication, she has been symptom-free for the past two years without any medication.

Expecting mother at thirty-something was investigated for thyroid after seven weeks of pregnancy. The test results revealed disturbed than normal thyroid levels, though she had no symptoms. She was a known case of PCOD and had the history of sudden weight gain at menarche. After the thyroid-test revelations, she was concerned about the foetus' growth. I counselled her about pregnancy-specific hypothyroidism among women as the demand for thyroid during pregnancy. I also assured her that her condition would not adversely affect her pregnancy or the baby. I also prescribed her Calc Carb, and the thyroid-test was done after a month; the results showed significant positive benefits of the medication. The mother was monitored for hypothyroidism through the pregnancy and later until she lactated. The newborn was also tested for hypothyroidism. The mother and the baby showed no signs of the disorder.

A young 10-years-old boy suffered from swelling on his throat. He as a diagnosed case of hypothyroidism as young as 8-years-old, although when he came to my clinic, he was not responding to any treatment. A detailed case taking revealed that his sister was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism, around the same age as he was. To further investigate his case, I advised antithyroid antibody tests; these tests help us pinpoint the kind of hypothyroidism. The tests revealed he had Hashimoto's thyroiditis; the little boy’s autoimmune system had turned against the thyroid gland. Considering his peculiar case Calcarea Sulph was prescribed; a follow up after one month revealed the swelling had completely subsided. His tests results were also within the normal range. I continued the medication and examined the boy every three months. He is symptoms free for the past 3 years, though he is advised to undergo regular tests to ensure symptom- and trouble-free life for the young boy.

Accurate disgnosis and personalised medication for effective treatment

In my experience, many cases of hypothyroidism are not so obvious. However, thorough diagnosis for women in the reproductive age group with complaints of tiredness, weight gain, facial and pedal swelling or menstrual irregularities have helped in identifying the disorder early and provide effective treatment. From the common symptomatic hypothyroidism cases to non-symptomatic or allied-symptomatic cases such as patients with the history of PCOD diagnosed with thyroid disorders, to post-surgery hypothyroid patients visit my clinic, and I can help them with homoeopathy.

 

World Teacher's Day - Rekindling The Inspiration!

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
World Teacher's Day -  Rekindling The Inspiration!

Rekindling the inspiration

​​​​​​​October 5 is celebrated as the World Teacher's Day; it is the time to revive the inspiration from your teachers.

Understanding the basics of 'practice'

I am a surgeon's daughter. My father, Dr Sanjeev Kadlaskar is my first teacher. He introduced me to the world of medicine from a very young age appreciating my leaning towards medicine. My practice today, thus, has its roots in those early interactions with my father's practice. I learned from him many things; the most important among them is how to interact with the patient and the thorough knowledge of the diagnosis. "It is important to clinically examine a patient than prescribing many tests,” reminds my father even today. “As a doctor, it is essential to chase the satisfaction in your practice that you have given the very best and everything you got for the patient’s health,” this lesson has been the guiding light for my practice for the past decade.

It is by observing him that I have understood the importance of wholistically guiding my patients with their diet, posture, exercise than merely prescribing them medicines. His interactions with patients mesmerise me; his concern and dedication for the patients inspire me to be a better doctor every day.

​​​​​​​Underlining the significance of ‘practising life’

Dr Megha Sonawane, a renowned anaesthesiologist practising in Maval area is an inspiration for her zeal for life. Besides medicine, she has achieved proficiency in almost everything that she does from gardening to cooking to arts and much more. I have learned the importance of living a fulfilling life besides learning a lot about emergency medicine and about staying calm while treating emergency patients.

Even after knowing her for so many years, I am amazed to see her learning or sharing her experience of learning something new. Her zeal to learn new things and keep herself updated has inspired me to keep myself updated and explore new things in life, personal and professional.

​​​​​​​Practising the art of ‘giving’

Dr Krishna Page is a renowned dermatologist from Pune. Though I have known him since my childhood as my father’s friend, I became his true student only after my internship. Dr Page has taught many students; he has always shared knowledge without withholding anything. His continuous effort to learn about every new development in the fields of dermatology and general medicine is inspiring.

He is a strict yet patient teacher and a stern yet compassionate person. He focuses on not just helping patients with medicines but a little beyond; he guides his patients to get the medicines at affordable prices. He is all for the patient, not distracted by anything else at all – this lesson is valuable for the young doctors like me operating in the current market and the society with many distractions, personal and professional.

​​​​​​​The quest for knowledge and positive change

The founder of Homoeopathy Dr Samuel Hahnemann advised:‘Aude sapere’  or ‘dare to be wise.’ It is excellent teaching from the master doctor, indeed, who led by example. Dr Hahnemann was unhappy with the then modes of treatments, bloodletting, for example, so he set out to find a better and a different system of patient care. He worked tirelessly until the age of 80, dedicating his life for medicine. Yet, besides medicine, he excelled at many things from chemistry and pharmacy to over a dozen languages.

In 1816, Dr Hahnemann observed that not all cases showed permanent cure and in certain cases, it was just the disappearance of the symptoms with homoeopathy. Despite being the renowned doctor, he did not shy away from accepting the flaws in his system and reinvented himself. He introduced the concept of miasms when the science of genetic study was nowhere in sight. He had the foresight to see the base of certain diseases in genetics; which has become the essential tool in the practice of medicine to predict the course of a disease or to predict the health graph of a person or a community.

Dr Hahnemann has written in great detail about the rules of practising homoeopathy, about record keeping, about chronic and acute disease treatment in ‘The Organon of the healing art’  first published in 1810. I refer to the 6th edition, really the in-detail annotated version of the 5th edition by the master himself published a year before his death in 1843. Dr Hahnemann’s life is an example of reinventing self, to break it all and start from the beginning, and his forward-looking vision is genuinely awe-inspiring.

Celebrating Festivals With A Pinch Of Good Health!

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
Celebrating Festivals With A Pinch Of Good Health!

​​​​​​​In the upcoming festive season enjoy the celebration, let me take care of your health with a few simple tips and medicines.

The festive season is about to start with pomp and splendour and so is your preparation; however, your health should not be ignored. While you take care of your diet and exercise, a few homoeopathic medicines can help you enjoy your festivities and celebration with fervour without worries about your health.

​​​​​​​Taking care of your little ones

The most excited of us all are the children during this time; be it food or the random fun during the celebrations. They may get easily affected and fall sick. A simple close watch on hygiene and regular hand washing can avoid cough, cold or throat infections. Children also tend to gorge on the festive food being completely ignorant of the consequences including indigestion. Parents should see to it that the children eat only warm and properly cooked food, only when hungry. The outside or the roadside food for children may further lead to diseases, like diarrhoea, spoiling the fun for them. Do not stop your child from eating sweets; educate them about the proper way of brushing the teeth and oral hygiene so that the child does not develop a toothache. Parents and elders around children must also protect the children from burn injuries, common during Diwali.

Throat infection, running nose and cough

Bio-combination 5 to prevent respiratory infections, 4 tablets twice a day in the first two days of symptoms. Allium Cepa 30, 6 pills twice a day for running nose for 4 days.

Indigestion

Carbo Veg 30, 6 pills one dose per day for 5 days.

Diarrhoea

Arsenicum Album 30, a single dose of 6 pills for 3 days.

A toothache

Mag Phos 200, a dose of 6 pills, four times before every meal, for 5 days, Chamomilla 30, 5 pills every half an hour, only 4 doses to reduce the pain immediately.

Injuries

Cantharis ointment for minor burns. Cantharis 30, 6 pills every two hours for 1 day to help prevent blister formation and reduce the pain, consult your doctor for wound management.

​​​​​​​The multi-tasking ladies

Leading the charge of the festive preparations, the lady of the house neglects her health. Continuous exertion and the hard work of hosting the guests can be tiring, leading to body ache and muscle soreness. Learn the art of planning and delegating tasks to all the family members. Fasting during the festivals and the anxiety can lead to weakness and headache; keep yourself hydrated and take enough rest. Don’t forget to eat fruits in your diet to keep yourself healthy while you fast.

Many women worry about their menstrual cycles during the festive seasons; interfering with nature and postponing your cycles can lead to heavy bleeding. Meditation and yoga can help you tackle the physical and the mental stress, helping you feel relaxed and enjoy the celebrations.

To look beautiful, maintain a healthy lifestyle even during the festivities; a bit of makeup will help you look good, perhaps, but staying alive from within is essential. Avoid cosmetics that may harm your skin and hair. Never forget to remove your make up with a make-up-remover, cleanse and moisturise the skin it before you go to sleep.

Body ache and muscle soreness

Arnica 200, 6 pills twice a day 2 days before the celebrations,continue if needed uptil 8 days.

Headache

Iris V 30, 6 pills thrice a day will help ameliorate a headache for 5 days . Kali Phos 30, a single dose of 8 pills for 8 days, at night for a good sleep, and to tackle anxiety.

Weakness and tiredness

Five Phos 6X, 4 tablets thrice a day to help you feel and look fresh for 10 days.

Heavy menstrual bleeding and the pain

Secale Cor 30, 6 pills four times a day to control bleeding; continue until the bleeding reduces for 3 days. Viburnum Opulus 30, 6 pills thrice a day for 3 days to help manage the pain.

Skin rashes and eruptions

Bovista 30, 6 pills thrice a day for 7 days to help clear up the eruptions. Calendula mother tincture, 15 drops per day in half a glass of water for 10 days, for clear skin.

​​​​​​​Grandmas and grandpas, don’t hold back

We all are sensitive to noise and air pollution; avoid the areas of excessive noise and air pollution. Engage with children by teaching them rangoli, cooking, drawing, making handicrafts for the festival to move them away from noisy parties and polluting firecrackers. The engagement will keep you active and keep away a headache and annoyance. If you are asthmatic, avoid the incense-sticks at home and switch on the exhaust fans in the kitchen when deep-frying to prevent cough and breathlessness. If you suffer from BP and diabetes, you must not ignore your medication.

Headache, tiredness and annoyance

Natrum Mur 200, 6 pills a day for 2 days to control a headache which occurs due to noise exposure. Kali Phos 30, 8 pills at night for 5 days, to reduce the irritability and tiredness.

Cough and breathlessness

Ipecac 30, 6 pills a day for 2 days to avoid breathlessness in asthma. Antim Tart 30, 6 pills thrice a day for 3 days, if a cough with expectoration develops. Blatta Orientalis 6C, 6 pills thrice a day for 2 days, to prevent wheezing.

The First Nutrition For Your Baby!

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,

Breastfeeding a prerequisite ritual in the life of a newborn and the mother for the healthy growth of the baby for it is the first and the best nutritious food for a newborn.

The primary stage of nurturing the baby

The first three months of a child’s life is the most delicate period for both the mother and the child. Mothers have to go through a lot of unexpected experiences in the first few months of their motherhood – from a range of health issues to lactation and breastfeeding. In this turbulent period, a lot of suggestions and instructions are launched on the new mother regarding the care of her child. 

Worldwide, the first week of August is celebrated as the ‘breastfeeding’ awareness week. Many of us are aware of its essentiality and strive to care for our children in the best possible way; however, there is still a lack of awareness regarding exclusive breastfeeding, the duration for which a baby needs to be breastfed, and the diet of the mother during this period.

Advantage mammals, including us the humans

Breastfeeding is a unique and the best way of providing the right nutrition for a baby for healthy growth. It is unique to mammals in the animal world, including us, the humans. Several researchers have shown that exclusive breastfeeding of an infant for six months is the perfect way to feed the infant. If the baby is fed only and exclusively on breastmilk, no other additional food or water during these six months is required for the baby.

Exclusive breastfeeding has a set of advantages for the baby as well as the mother, and the advantages prove that exclusive breastfeeding is the best kickstarter for the baby’s growth.

The benefits of breastfeeding for the infants include

1.the best supply of all the nutrients an infant needs the first six months of life, thereby reducing infant mortality,

2. Helps in better development of sensory and cognitive abilities, leading to better intelligence quotient (IQ)

3. Rich in antibiotics, breast milk helps the baby in fighting infectious and chronic diseases

4. Reduces incidences of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and obesity


Advantages of exclusive breastfeeding for the mother are: 

1. It helps in effectively spacing between the childbirths

2. Decreases the risk of ovarian and breast cancer

3. Absolutely an economical and safe way to feed a child

4. Helps in creating a bond between the mother and the child

5. Prevents postpartum depression that many women face after childbirth
 

The second best for your baby

There may be reasons when the mother is unable to lactate or breastfeed the baby due to medical reasons or some unforeseen situations, the human milk from the other lactating lady is the second best option. Dai maa or the nursing mother was a common practice in the Indian culture. The ‘human milk bank' may seem like a novel concept today, but it is the modern-world reincarnation of the age-old system.One should know that the milk-substitutes may provide the required nutrients, but the useful pro-health and anti-disease properties of human breast milk cannot be replaced. This is where the human milk banks play a critical role; a human milk bank provides milk to the premature or low weight infants, the babies who separated from their mothers due to some medical complications, or to the orphaned infants.

The breast milk is collected from healthy mothers, who are lactating for six months or less and who produce excess milk than required by their infant. The breast milk is extracted by mothers using ‘breast pumps' offering a safe method to extract the milk, and deposited with the milk bank. The milk is then screened, processed, pasteurised and stored under prescribed conditions before giving it to the babies who need it. It can be stored in tightly sealed containers at home, and it is to be given to the babies within 96 hours of collection to ensure that it delivers the best nutritional value.
 

Points to remember

In the sweet chaos of taking the best care of your child, few things are bound to slip away from your mind. Let me share a few tips to breastfeed and create a strong bond with your child successfully 

1. Breastfeeding the baby within the first hour of life is essential.

2. While breastfeeding, the position is crucial; tummy to tummy is the best position. 

3. Don’t use artificial teats or pacifiers to avoid confusion with the nipple.

4. Feed the baby on his/her demand, not by yours.

5. Skin to skin touch promotes milk production.

Repairing The Bond Tackling Breastfeeding Issues

Repairing the bond- tackling breastfeeding issues

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,

 

 

​​​​​​​A minor or a primary concern regarding breastfeeding, homoeopathy steps forward to relieve mothers letting them enjoy motherhood.

For our children, we want nothing less than the best. And when it comes to seeking medical treatment, utmost care is taken in choosing good consultancy and effective medicines. Homoeopathy is just the right solution for its efficacy, ease of use, and excellent safety for the patients of any age.

The cycle of motherhood is pleasant, but it goes through a lot of crests and troughs. And in the nourishing period of first six months of breastfeeding, diseases related to lactation and breastfeeding may emerge. While 79% of mothers breastfeed their baby right after the childbirth, only 46% of them do for the required period of 6 months for the lack of health of the mother or other minor healthcare issues. Homoeopathy promises to resolve the significant and insignificant problems with its set of medicines that can be consumed even during the most delicate period of the life of a mother and her child, causing zero harm to them, especially the little one.

​​​​​​​Relief from the pain that kept the baby away from mother

She became mother last August, and after the usual span of six months of breastfeeding her right breast started to feel a sharp pain. She could not feed her baby from that side and so started breastfeeding exclusively from the left side. The pain did not reduce with time.

The distressed mother consulted me. I advised her to breastfeed from the right breast to release the blocked ducts to start the healing process. I prescribed Belladonna 200 CH, 6 pills, twice a day for three days. During the follow up after three days of medication the patient told me that the pain had reduced, but the redness on the skin worried her. I advised five more days of the same medicine. In less than 10 days, the patient had regained her health and was able to breastfeed her child without pain.​​​​​​​

Timely counselling, some medication, and lots of support

She became a mother in June this year. Her baby boy had to be supported with a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for the first five days of his life; he was unable to gain the expected 30 grams weight each day. The mother was also advised a formula feed, and it benefited her baby; he gained 1.8 kgs after the initial 3 kg. Everything was fine until the mother realised that the baby was unable to suck the nipple. She approached me with concerns if baby's inability to suck the nipple and breastfeed would lead to insufficient milk supply to the baby.

I explained the first-time-mother every little thing, from a proper latch to the ideal breastfeeding position. I also prescribed the patient Agnus Castus 6CH, 6 pills, three times a day. After 10 days the dose was reduced to once a day for a fortnight and continued it for further 30 days.

Timely counselling to the mother ensure she was educated about giving the best care to her baby, the medication helped in restoring her physical health, and my support as a family physician helped her feel confident in loving and caring for her baby.

​​​​​​​Support the latch; treat the itchy nipples

First-time, young mothers are seldom aware of proper breastfeeding positions and the significance of correctly latching the baby while breastfeeding. Soon after her delivery in December 2017, she and her baby faced no issues. A few days later, however, she walked into my clinic with the complaints about itchy, cracked right nipple. Breastfeeding her became a painful experience for the mother.

After examining the patient, I told her that incorrect latching was the root cause of her misery.  I suggested her to moisturise the tender, right nipple with breast milk. Besides, I also prescribed Graphite 30 CH, 6 pills, thrice a day, for eight days. The cracks healed in six days, and the itching reduced to a great extent. After the initial improvement, I advised the mother to support and position the baby correctly for breastfeeding and heal the part by applying breast milk. The patient was symptom-free in 15 days, upon the next follow up.
