Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis!

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is a rare disorder caused by an immune system response in the lungs after breathing in certain triggers. 

How Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis Is Treated?
The single most important thing that you can do is avoid the dust that causes the disease. If you do so, your lungs can return to normal function, as the disease is completely reversible in the early stages. Completely avoiding the dust is sometimes not possible, unless you remove yourself from the dust-causing environment. Your doctor may recommend completely avoiding the dust by relocating to a new home or job. If you have bird fancier's lung, then it is possible you may have to give up your pet bird.

In patients who have severe cases, treatment may include prescription steroids, such as prednisone. You may be required to take this medication for up 3 months and sometimes longer. Steroids may help with your symptoms; however, it will not cure the disease. Steroids can also cause certain side effects such as weight gain, thinning of the bones, cataracts, abnormal blood sugar levels and increased pressure in your eyes.

How Homeopathy Can Help Children?

Parents today are more concerned about their child's healthy diet and hygiene compared to earlier days. They are more inclined towards quality when it comes to providing medical assistance to their children. They are also now well aware of the side effects of conventional drugs and are keener towards trying alternative treatments which come with no side effects. Studies prove that conventional drugs suppress diseases and antibiotics hamper digestion. But homeopathy on the other hand, offers natural remedies, which are safe, and has a long-lasting effect by boosting your body's immunity.

Below are some of the conditions in which homeopathy works wonders with the kids:

1. Acute conditions such as cold, flu, sore throat, stomach infections. These conditions are self-limiting. Homeopathic remedies not only cure these acute problems, but also prevent their recurrence.

2. Chronic diseases like eczema and allergies are cured completely and never recur when treated with homeopathy. In both the above cases, homeopathy works miraculously. Alongside the healing process, it boosts the child's self-defense mechanisms to fight against diseases. While antibiotics may be too harsh for the child's body, homeopathy is a safer option since it does not have any side-effects.

Homeopathy is also effective in treating colic, ear ache and reduces pain and discomforts. Some of the common problems of children where homeopathy works well are fever, teething, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, kidney diseases, infant colic, jaundice, eczema, convulsions, ear infection, fungal infections, warts, thyroid problems, and growth related problems.

Not just physical symptoms, homeopathy also treats mental and emotional disturbances.

  • You can take help of homeopathy treatment if the child is cranky or restless, and it is very beneficial even in case of hyperactive children.
  • It is also effective in increasing concentration.
  • Homeopathy works perfectly for specially challenged children as well.
  • One of the plus points with homeopathic medicine is that it is easy to administer given their light doses and consumable taste.
  • In addition, injections are not required. Furthermore, homeopathic treatment helps in all stages of childhood.

Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine. It works on improving immunity rather than only curing the disease. Thus, it is very important to complete courses in homeopathy medication. Even though handy, homeopathy does not allow self-medication. It is always advisable to seek a doctor's help.

Food Allergies - Know More About It!

Food Allergies - Know More About It!

Every year, the emergency rooms at hospitals get flooded by cases of allergic reactions from food. According to a census, about 15 million Indians suffer from some kind of food allergy. The symptoms of food allergy may vary from itchy mouth to potentially fatal conditions like anaphylactic shock. Other symptoms of an allergic reaction can present themselves as difficulty in breathing, swelling of tongue, rashes and intestinal discomfort.

According to specialists, allergies to food can develop at any age, at any time. Hence, if you suspect a sudden allergic reaction to a food that you have consumed before without any problem, it is advised to consult your doctor.

Here is a list of the most common allergy-causing foods-

  1. Milk: Milk is the most common food that children and infants are allergic to. Milk allergy must not be confused with lactose intolerance wherein a person faces difficulties in digesting the sugar present in milk. The two conditions are not related. Milk allergy is the hypersensitivity reaction that happens in response to certain proteins present in milk and can be potentially deadly. Most children are seen to outgrow their allergy to milk.
  2. Wheat: It is a common misconception to confuse Celiac’s disease with wheat allergy. Wheat allergy exclusively occurs due to the hypersensitivity to the protein present in wheat alone. In Celiac’s disease, it is the gluten in the food they are hypersensitive to, which is also present in rye, barley and oats.
  3. Soy: Soy is a very common allergic food and most children seem to outgrow it by the age of 10. Most of the time, soy allergy is not too severe and the symptoms presented are mostly mild. Although, cases of anaphylaxis in reaction to soy have been reported. Soy and soy protein are very common ingredients found in food, hence it is advised to check the ingredients present before consuming it.
  4. Shellfish: This allergy usually does not go away and you are most likely to deal with all your life. Most people who experience allergies from shellfish are most likely to be hypersensitive to both crustaceans (lobsters, shrimps and crabs) and molluscs (mussels, oysters, scallops and clams). This type of allergy can become very intense and you must even avoid the steam produced from cooking shellfish. For some people, the mere contact with shellfish can trigger an allergic reaction.

Common Allergies - Foods That Can Trigger Them!

Common Allergies - Foods That Can Trigger Them!

Food is a very important part of your life as it provides all the necessary nutrients required by your body and is essentially, the fuel for all things to function within. However, many people may have aversion to certain kinds of food as it causes adverse reactions within their body. Let’s look at some of the common food allergies that people commonly report and how to identify them.

Allergies v/s Intolerances: ?It is important to note here that there is a significant difference between food sensitivities or intolerances and allergies. Sensitivities or intolerances cause adverse effects on your body inevitably when you consume certain types of foods. One such example is diarrhea, caused by ingesting cheese or milk by lactose intolerant people. However, allergies are caused when the immune system within your body mistakes harmless food as something that might harm you and thus tries to protect you from its effects. This results in reactions within your body which may be very painful and problematic.

Common foods that trigger allergies
Some of the common foods that trigger allergies are:
1. Peanuts
2. Shellfish
3. Other forms of tree nuts such as almonds, walnuts etc.
4. Gluten rich grains such as wheat, rye barley, oats
5. Certain types of fish
6. Eggs
7. Soy products
8. Milk (allergic reactions mostly occur within children)

Some other foods which have been known to cause allergies in rare cases are:
1. Meats such as pork, chicken, beef, mutton
2. Corn and corn products
3. Gelatin
4. Certain spices such as mustard, garlic and coriander among others
5. Certain seeds such as poppy, sunflower, or sesame

Symptoms of allergies
In certain cases, the allergies might manifest immediately, almost in a matter of minutes, within the body. However, in many cases, it may take a few hours for it to show up. The symptoms may range from mild to quite severe. Mild symptoms will make it quite hard to actually diagnose it as a food allergy.

Some of the milder symptoms could be:
1. Hives or eczema could form on your skin which may be very itchy. These would look like raised swollen areas that could be red, inflamed, and dry.
2. The inside of your mouth and ears may become itchy
3. You could suddenly develop a runny or a blocked nose and start sneezing or coughing.
4. Your eyes may become watery, red and itchy
5. You may develop a funny taste in your mouth
6. Others symptoms may include throwing up and even loose motions

Other severe forms of allergies can be caused mostly by shellfish and peanuts and other forms of nuts and fish. Symptoms in such cases would look like:
1. Uneven heartbeat
2. Difficulty in swallowing and breathing
3. Feeling of extreme weakness, confusion
4. Passing out or feeling light headed
5. The tongue, throat or lips may swell up
6. Chest pain

Allergies - Role Of Homeopathy In Managing Them!

Allergies - Role Of Homeopathy In Managing Them!

Allergies can be difficult to handle and may prevent you from leading a normal life. The problem with allergies is the fact that there is no common trigger. Each person may be allergic to a different substance and it is vital for the patient to figure out what triggers the allergies. In severe forms of allergies, patients may become unable to draw breath, which would need them to be hospitalized.

Here is a look at some common causes for the allergies and the symptoms that such allergies may produce.

Causes of Allergy
Allergy is an autoimmune condition that is caused when the body’s immune system mistakes a foreign object for a harmful substance and attacks it. So, if an individual is allergic to peanuts, their body’s immune system will be on the lookout for the allergen in the blood and will produce antibodies against the same. Common allergens that are known to trigger such a negative reaction inside the body include-

  1. Certain food items
  2. Contact with certain insects and fleas
  3. Airborne allergens
  4. Certain medications
  5. Certain objects that you touch
  6. People with a family history of allergies and asthma are more likely to suffer from such a condition.

Symptoms of Allergy
The symptoms of allergy sometimes differ based on the trigger for the allergies. However, some symptoms are more common than others.

  1. Sneezing
  2. Inflammation of face and neck
  3. Red and watery eyes
  4. Runny nose
  5. Difficulty in drawing breath
  6. Skin rash
  7. Anaphylaxis

While most of the other symptoms are relatively easy to handle, anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock may even be fatal in some cases. Anaphylaxis usually results from food allergies and can cause the patient to go into shock. Loss of consciousness, severe breathlessness, nausea and vomiting during an allergy may hint toward anaphylactic shock.

Role of homeopathy against allergies
Homeopathy bolsters the immune system as a whole and does not try to treat the allergy itself. Homeopathic treatments use natural remedies to treat the condition, which is why there are no chances of side effects from these medications. Topical creams to deal with the skin rash and oral medication to deal with other symptoms are commonly prescribed.

Even though homeopathic treatment takes time to work, it is still a dependable remedy. This branch of medical science believes in like cures like. This means that people allergic to peanuts may be treated by using a diluted form of the same allergen.

Asthma - Allergies That Trigger It & Ways To Minimise them!

If you have been diagnosed with asthma, it is important for you to know about the most common triggers of asthma. Asthma is a medical condition, which is characterised by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. It causes breathing difficulties, tightened chest and coughing. By identifying and reducing your exposure to several asthma triggers, you will be able to manage or control your asthma symptoms and the frequency of your asthma attacks. Here are the most common triggers of asthma you should know about:

Allergies that trigger asthma
Allergies, are common problems and over 80% of people are suffering from asthma and are allergic towards substances like weed pollens, animal dander, dust mites, mould and cockroach particles. Children having large amounts of cockroach droppings in their homes are more likely to develop childhood asthma. Dust exposure may lead to dust mite allergy in asthmatic patients.

Food which triggers asthma
Certain food allergies may lead to isolated asthma, where other symptoms are absent. Patients with food allergies can exhibit asthma as a part of anaphylaxis, which are food induced. The common food items which are associated with allergies include eggs, peanuts, cow milk, soy, fish, wheat, shrimps, salads and fresh fruits. Several food preservatives also trigger asthma. They may include sulfite additives such as potassium bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite, sodiumsulfite, sodium bisulfate and many others. These are commonly used in food processing and trigger asthma in sensitive people.

Asthma induced by exercise

Strenuous exercise may lead to the narrowing of the airways in maximum people having asthma. Exercise acts as a primary trigger for asthma symptoms in many people. Patients having exercise induced asthma are likely to feel chest tightness accompanied by coughing and breathing difficulties after completing an aerobic workout session. Although the symptoms subside, they may reoccur within some hours. You should warm up properly and slowly before a rigorous workout session to prevent an asthma attack.

Smoking
People who smoke are more likely to have asthma. If you have asthma and still smoke, the symptoms of wheezing and coughing worsen. Pregnant women who smoke increase the chance of wheezing in their to-be-born babies. You should absolutely quit smoking if you have asthma.

Infections which trigger asthma
Several infections such as cold, bronchitisflu and sinus may cause asthma attacks. The respiratory infections, which are viral or bacterial, are a common cause and trigger asthma, especially in children. Asthma is also associated with severe heartburn. According to studies, more than 85% people with asthma also suffer from heartburn. This is a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.

How to Minimize Asthma Triggers

  • Air out damp, humid areas frequently. Run a dehumidifier to keep humidity between 25% and 50%.

  • Use air conditioners when possible.

  • Clean bathrooms regularly, using products that kill and prevent mold.

  • Use exhaust fans to vent steam.

  • Keep indoor plants out of bedrooms.

  • When painting, add mold inhibitor to paint to prevent mold from growing.

  • Avoid sources of outdoor molds, such as wet leaves or garden debris.

  • To clean visible mold, use a cleaning solution containing bleach and detergent.

  • Limit your outdoor activities during times of high pollen, such as early morning.

  • Stay indoors during humid or windy days when pollen counts are high.

  • Keep windows closed during pollen seasons.

  • Encase pillows and mattresses with allergen-proof, zippered covers.

  • Pillows and bedding should not contain feathers.

  • Wash all bedding in hot water, once a week.

  • Non-carpeted flooring is best. If you cannot get rid of your carpeting, vacuum often with a multi-layer, allergen-proof vacuum bag. Wear a mask while vacuuming. If your child has asthma, do not vacuum while he or she is in the room.

  • Avoid curtains and drapes. Use plain window shades instead of miniblinds. Washable curtains should be washed in hot water every 2 to 4 weeks.

  • Dust all surfaces with a damp cloth often, including lampshades and windowsills.

  • Keep clutter under control. Toys and books should be stored in enclosed bookshelves, drawers or closets.

  • Replace traditional stuffed animals with washable stuffed animals.

  • Keep all clothing in drawers and closets. Keep drawers and closets closed.

  • Cover air ducts with filters. Change these when soiled.

  • Regularly change filters of heaters and air conditioners

  • Long visits to friends and family who own pets should be avoided. If you do visit, make sure you take asthma or allergy medicines before the visit. Exposure to the pets should be kept to a minimum when visiting.

  • If you must have a cat or dog in the home, restrict its living area. It should not be allowed in your bedroom at any time. If possible, keep the pet outside.

  • Wash your pet weekly.

  • Remove as much carpeting as possible. Animal dander deposits in the carpet and stays there, even after the pet has gone from the home.

Treatment Of Bronchial Asthma!

In this article, we will explain importance of miasmatc study in treating bronchial asthma

Why best homeopathic treatment for allergic asthma fails?

Importance of miasmatc study in treating bronchial asthma. Treating cases of allergic asthma without understanding miasmatic condition is difficult for a number of homoeopaths. Curing allergic asthma require persistence, uphill struggle, and passion to recognize and take care of such patients. As per Dr. Abhishek, physician must have a comprehensive understanding of miasmatic conditions of the asthmatic patient in conjunction with the maintaining and exciting causes. Maintaining and exciting causes help us to select similimum, and comprehensive understanding of miasmatic conditions helps in elimination of the main obstruction to the cure of asthma, correct potency selection, medicine doses and repitition, disease prognosis, and assessment of homeopathic medicine effect. 

Few important guidelines to recognize the miasm.

Psoric miasm:- hypersensitivity, inflammation and irritation.

History of skin disease suppression and commencement of asthma. 

Symptoms

Patient will complains of more spasms and less secretions

Abrupt breath holding spasms

Scanty, mucoid, clourless, tasteless and odourless expectoration 

Exciting factor – asthmatic attack is elicit by psychological and emotional influx.

Modalities- better from (a) reappearance of skin eruptions

Pseudo-psora – suppuration

2. Sycotic miasm:- over growth, indurations and infiltrations.

Past history, discharges from mucus membranes suppression. 

Symptoms

Asthma, with cough, scanty secretions, intricate expectoration 

Thick yellowish-green expectoration.

Cannot breathe easily through his nose.

Exciting factors- (a) getting wet in rain (b) rainy period 

Modalities- condition improved in dry climate and from restoration of discharge. 

3. Tubercular miasm:- history of recurring uri-upper respiratory infections

Cough with excessive expectoration

Expectoration is purulent, muco-purulent or even bloody

Exciting factors

Infections usually bacterial or viral

Cold air, exprosure to cold 

Modalities- improved at day time, exposure to sun. 

4. Importance of:- ulceration, granulation and degeneration.


When irreparable change had take place in the lungs parenchyma. Example emphysematous changes in lungs

Symptoms- barking cough.

*Important tip

Even the best selected homeopathic medicine will fail to cure, if patient don’t avoid exciting and maintaining cause.

Bronchial asthma homeopathy treatment

Lectures on homoeopathy materia medica indicate the shortcoming of prescribing homeopathic medicine effortlessly on the basis of symptoms totality without understanding miasmatic back ground.

" asthma, when it is hereditary, is one of the sycotic diseases of hahnemann. For years I was puzzled with the management of asthma. When a person came to me and asked" doctor can you cure asthma" I would say" no" but now I am quite liberal on asthma, since I have learned that asthma is a sycotic disease, and since I am able to treat or cure large number of asthamatic patients after I have made well judged appliance of anti-sycotics homeopathic medicine. That is one of the first things I observed, that outside of sycotics you will seldom find a cure for asthma.

We further talk about shortcoming of prescribing homeopathic medicine effortlessly on the basis of symptoms totality without understanding miasmatic back ground.

" while ipecac, spongia, and arsenicum will correspond just as clearly to the supervening symptoms and to everything that you can find about the case, yet what do they do? they palliate; they repress the symptoms; but your asthma is no better off, your patient is not cured" 

From above speech marks it is obvious that Dr. Kent strictly follow Dr. Hahnemann's experience and work inaccordance to the hypothesis of anti-miasmic remedy. Dr. Kent further he also evidently express that using the totality of symptoms without understanding deep consept of miasms can lead to sheer suppression or palliation of the disease. 

Doctor give emphasis on the better understanding of fundamental cause along with totality of symptoms, in aphorism no-5 of bible of homeopathy-organon. 

" useful to the physician in assisting him to cure are the particulars of the most probable exciting cause of the acute disease as well as the most significant finding during casetaking (chronic disease history), to helps physician to find its fundamental cause, i. E chronic miasm. In these investigation, the corporal constitution of the patient, his ethical and logical character, his profession, mode of livelihood and lifestyle, his social and domestic relations, his age, sexual function, etc, are to be taken into consideration. 

Therefore it is utterly essential for a homoeopathic doctor to identify the exciting factor of allergic asthma, the allergic trigger and primary fundamental cause of allergic asthma. Hence finding the chronic miasms is very important. An acquired allergic asthma as a rule is psoric in origin and genetic asthma is sycotic in origin. The acute worsening of the chronic state of asthna are hidden within the constitution and occur due to exciting factors.
