Hi Sir, I had alcohol last night and then today I checked my cbc and found my platelet count 1.1 lakh which was lower than the range. But I do have any problem. So was it due to the presence of alcohol in the blood sample?

Platelet-Rich Plasma - How Can It Enhance Our Skin?

Platelet-Rich Plasma - How Can It Enhance Our Skin?

Platelet-Rich Plasma is a kind of natural product that gets created from one’s own body. It is a concentrated form of blood plasma that contains around 3 to 5 times the number of platelets, which is found in a normal blood that circulates in the body.

A little amount of blood gets drawn from a person and then placed in a sterilized tube, which is then spun down in the form of a centrifuge so as to separate the different components present in the blood. White and Red blood cells get divided from the platelets and the crystal clear fluid called plasma. This plasma then contains higher number of platelets and hence, gets called as platelet rich plasma or PRP.

Why Skin Tends to Get Rejuvenated Through Platelets?

Platelets are basically the cells present in the blood that assist in helping tissue to get healed and thus, lead to the growth of new cells.

The process tends to take place in the following manner:

  • The PRP gets injected into some specific regions of the skin and it acts as a matrix to help promote a person’s own collagen to grow.
  • Regeneration of the tissue also takes places and hence the PRP acts in order to make the skin look naturally smooth and also in its tightened form.
  • In this manner, PRP helps in softening the wrinkles and leads to the creation of smoother texture and tone of the skin.

Let us take a look at the Background of PRP:

Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP carries a long history with itself. It is being used in orthopaedic medicine, in reconstructive surgery and also in dentistry. Now, the benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma get applied on to the other fields of medicine such as:

  • Skin Wound Healing
  • Dermatology
  • Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation

Scientific studies that have gone for 30 years, seems to tell us that PRP tends to grow new collagen when they get injected inside the skin and now recent studies have proved that Platelet-Rich Plasma can help skin get softened from the damage caused by sunlight and also deal with issues related to aging skin.

What Happens During and After the Procedure of Platelet-Rich Plasma?

The procedure is carried on something like this:

  • A small quantity of blood will be drawn from one’s body.
  • While the Platelet-Rich Plasma gets prepared, one’s skin would be cleaned and made ready for the treatment.
  • The injections take very less time and it is uncomfortable for people only to some extent.
  • The procedure takes hardly 15 minutes.
  • It is completely painless and do not require any care after the procedure gets completed.
  • People can get back doing their normal activities without any delay.
  • People can only come across mild swelling, reddish tinge or bruises that fade out within 3 days or so.

This report may or may not be correct. You can cross-check from some other lab. But as you said you take healthy food. But it depends on your body what it’s assimilating. It’s important what you eat n at what time. All the food are good. Food is not good or bad. It’s the timings that are good or bad. So may be you r consuming right food at the wrong time or your body is not able to absorb good things out of food. Also meals or what you eat before n after exercise are very important. Consult online for details.

You have low platelet and it needs no treatment. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (itp) may occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks platelets. In children, it may follow a viral infection. In adults, it may be chronic. Symptoms may include easy bruising, bleeding and pinpoint-sized reddish-purple spots on the lower legs. In children, itp usually resolves without any treatment. Adults commonly need treatment with medication for bleeding. Rarely the spleen may need to be removed.

Dengue & Chikungunya - Have Homeopathy At Your Rescue!

Dengue & Chikungunya - Have Homeopathy At Your Rescue!

Many surveys have proved that homeopathic medicines are extremely effective in treating all these cases of viral fever related to Dengue and Chikungunya, thereby help in restoring the health of the patient. Let us see one by one how homeopathy can help in the prevention and cure of both:

Dengue:
Dengue is a mosquito-borne infectious disease, which causes flu-like symptoms. The Dengue is caused by 4 different viruses and is spread by the Aedes species of mosquitos. Dengue affects your blood cells, which in turn results in a sudden drop in the platelet count. Ideally, the platelet count ranges from 1.5-4 lacs, but in people affected by dengue virus, the platelet count goes down to as low as 20,000-40,000. This condition can be fatal. The onset on dengue is through fever. Dengue is one of the diseases that is transmitted through parasites like mosquitoes. Often it tends to occur in most of the tropical countries.

Symptoms of dengue can vary from mild to severe-

Initial dengue symptoms usually develop 4-7 days after the mosquito bite. So many times the person affected by the virus does not realize that he/she has already been infected. If the fever does not subside in 3-4 days, one should immediately consult a doctor and have himself diagnosed.

Prevention and Cure through Homeopathy:
The Homeopathic approach of prevention and cure include:

  1. It is an effective way through which immune-modulation of patients is done without having the risk of any side-effect.
  2. The choice of homeopathic drugs depends upon an individual’s response to infection and the severity of the virus.
  3. The symptoms of the patients affected are studied carefully to decide upon the curative as well as preventive homeopathic medicines.

Chikungunya:

Similar to dengue, the chikungunya virus is spread by an infected female mosquito- the Aedes genus mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on any person affected with this virus. Unlike dengue, this viral disease is rarely fatal. However, the symptoms of chikungunya can be long-lasting, severe and debilitating.

The major symptoms of chikungunya include-

In 2006, Chikungunya affected approximately 40,000 people, out of which nearly 1316 cases turned out to be fatal.

Prevention and Cure through Homeopathy:

Prevention
In Homeopathy, there is a concept known as “Genus Epidemicus”, which helps as preventive remedy in an epidemic like this. This concept involves:

  1. Clinical picture of a group of patients in a specific locality gets studied and hence the most appropriate remedy is selected as the Genus Epidemicus for Chikungunya.
  2. Genus Epidemicus helps in increasing person’s immunity to such a level that even after mosquito bites; it is unable to produce any active disease in the person’s body.

Cure

  1. Homeopathic medicines get prescribed as per the clinical presentation of the patient, which become very effective in giving relief from the complaints during Chikungunya.
  2. Homeopathy is effective in all kinds of viral diseases.
  3. The pills given are simply chewed on tongue and tastes sweet.
  4. These medicines do not cause any kind of gastric irritation.

Why Homoeopathy?

Since there are no effective medications, vaccines or treatment options for Dengue and Chikungunya, the only way to steer clear of these diseases is to prevent their occurrence. Homoeopathy medicines and remedies are very effective in preventing and curing the mosquito-borne diseases, Dengue and Chikungunya. These medicines are prepared from natural substances, hence are extremely safe. Eupatorium perfoliatum is a perennial plant, the extracts of which are used in preparing homoeopathy drugs for dengue. This helps ease the pain in the joints and in the eyeballs. This wonder plant also helps you recover from a severe headache. Arsenic album, a solution made from diluted aqueous arsenic trioxide, can ease symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Belladonna can cure high fever; reduce skin rashes and swelling in the joints.

Apart from these, health awareness is mandatory for the prevention of these diseases. Clean surroundings, practising good hygiene play a major role in averting prevalence of mosquito-borne diseases.
