Bell's Palsy - Can Homeopathy Resolve It?

Some diseases like Bell’s Palsy have a sudden onset. One moment everything is fine and the next, half your face feels paralysed. Bell’s Palsy is a viral infection that causes temporary paralysis of one side of the face. The exact cause is unknown but this virus is said to be related to the herpes virus. The sudden onset of this condition can make a person believe that they have suffered a stroke and this condition can last for several months. Many people do not completely recover from this condition. A numb sensation, lack of control over the lips and eyelids, drooping of one side of the face and an inability to smile or blink are some of the symptoms of this condition.

Homeopathy has been used to treat a number of Bell’s Palsy cases successfully. However, the results vary from person to person and the extent of nerve damage done. This form of treatment does not address only the visible symptoms but addresses the physical, mental and emotional health of a person as a whole. Since homeopathy has negligible side effects, it can be prescribed to children and adults alike. Some common homeopathic remedies for Bell’s Palsy are:

  1. Aconite and Causticum: Aconite is prescribed in the initial stages of this condition especially is paralysis seems to have set in after exposure to a cold draft. Patients who can benefit from aconite often also complain of a tingling sensation on the affected side of the face. On the other hand, causticum is prescribed to treat chronic cases of facial paralysis.

  2. Hypericum: This is the most preferred homoeopathic remedy in cases of paralysis caused due to injury to a nerve. In addition to the symptoms of Bell’s Palsy, the patient may also complain of tingling or numbing sensations and burning sensations on the affected side of the face.

  3. Ignatia: Bell’s Palsy can also be triggered by grief. In such cases, Ignatia has been proven to be quite effective. It also resolves excessive saliva production and frequent biting of cheeks of the tongue while talking and swallowing.

  4. Cadmium Sulph: Bell’s Palsy that develops as a result of a sudden haemorrhagic condition can be treated with Cadmium Sulph. In such cases, the patient may have a distorted face and may face difficulties swallowing food and speaking properly. He or she may also be unable to close the eye on the affected side of the face.

  5. Bacillinum and Causticum: The medicines are prescribed in cases of Bell’s Palsy triggered by the suppression of facial eruptions.

Psoriasis - How To Treat Them?

Psoriasis is a disorder which is characterized by the rapid multiplication of skin cells on the skin’s surface. These extra skin cells develop into silvery scales, which are often dry and itchy. It may also lead to the formation of painful red patches on the skin. This disorder might produce symptoms, which flare up and reduce periodically. There is no cure for psoriasis; treatments, however, can make the symptoms manageable.

Symptoms

The symptoms of psoriasis include red patches on the skin and scaly and dry skin. The red patches might be itchy and one might often experience a burning sensation around the area. The joints in your body may also become stiff and swollen.

Causes

The exact cause of psoriasis has not been ascertained. The accepted theory is that psoriasis occurs when the immune system attacks healthy skin cells. There is a type of white blood cell called the ‘T cell’, whose function is to combat harmful virus or bacteria in the body. With Psoriasis or any other autoimmune disorder, these T cells start attacking the healthy (skin) cells.

Overactive ‘T Cells’ may trigger other responses in the body, thus, leading to excess production of skin cells and white blood cells. The excess cells move to the skin surface and end up causing the red painful patches.

Treatment options to manage psoriasis

Although there’s no cure for psoriasis as such, the symptoms can be controlled. The treatment options for psoriasis are:

1. Topical treatments: Topical treatments involve the application of creams and lotions. They have been mentioned below:

I. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroid creams or lotions reduce the excess skin cell production, thus, reducing inflammation. They are generally not used as a long term treatment as they cause skin thinning.

II. Vitamin D analogues: A synthetic form of Vitamin D, it helps in slowing down skin cell growth.

III. Salicylic acid: This treatment is used to reduce scaling on the skin, caused due to psoriasis. It is usually administered along with other medications.

2. Light therapy: Light therapy involves using sunlight or artificial light to reduce inflammation and scaling. It helps in reducing the activity of T cells in the body.

3. Oral medications

In case of severe symptoms, oral medications are prescribed. Medications such methotrexate helps in reducing the excess production of skin cells. Cyclosporine is a drug that is used to suppress the erroneous immune system response.

Psoriasis - How Can Homeopathy Resolve It?

Psoriasis is a skin condition characterized by red patches of skin or small scaling spots covered with silvery and thick scales. The pain, itching, and burning symptoms in Psoriasis can get too discomforting at times. If it is recurring in cycles of month or weeks, patients need to visit a doctor. 

Doctors usually prescribe corticosteroid creams and ointments to apply over the affected parts. However, such topical medicines may have side effects. They may even stop working if applied for a long time. 

Psoriatic symptoms may also come back after some time. Patients can take the help of homeopathy to cure Psoriasis since it rarely has any side effect and it may be able to cure the problem permanently. 

What is Psoriasis 
It is an inflammatory condition of skin, which affects a small percentage of people, but can appear at any age, between 11 and 60. The skin may also be dry and cracked and bleed. Itching, soreness and burning are common conditions associated with Psoriasis. There may also be thickened or ridged nails and even stiff, swollen joints. The condition can be widespread or sporadic. 
Whatever be the nature of the condition, it is very likely to be painful, itchy and even burning. If it leads to bleeding, it can become very discomforting. 

Causes of Psoriasis
 It is considered that Psoriasis is a result of overactive immune cells. The immune cells attack healthy skin cells and precipitate the problem. 

Normal cells undergo a continuous process of change. They move up to the surface of the skin, die and are shed within weeks. This process gets accelerated in Psoriasis. As a result, cells go through this cycle within a few days. This causes all the symptoms of skin and even joints like fingers and toes including the spine.

Homeopathy and Psoriasis
 There are side effects of traditional Psoriasis treatment. It may not even be able to cure the problem permanently. People need to take these into account while seeking treatment for Psoriatic skin conditions.

Homeopathy treats Psoriasis effectively with no side effects.

In Homeopathy, doctors may just target the problem or suggest a constitutional remedy that can strengthen the system in general.
Homeopathic doctors may not just look at the Psoriasis symptoms of the patient, but also the patient’s general health. They take note of how patients react to the environment and which factors trigger their emotion. 
Constitutional approach is the hallmark of careful Homeopathic treatment for diseases, including Psoriasis. 
However, doctors may also combine constitutional remedy with symptomatic treatment for the best resolution of the problem. 

Conclusion 
 Traditional remedy may not be able to cure Psoriasis permanently. This is why many patients are now turning to homeopathy. Homeopathic doctors fight the disease in two ways – constitutionally and symptomatically. This may strengthen the body to resist Psoriasis and also prevent flare-ups.

Psoriasis And Lichen Planus - Know Homeopathic Way Of Handling Them!

Psoriasis And Lichen Planus - Know Homeopathic Way Of Handling Them!

Psoriasis and Lichen Planus are both autoimmune diseases. These occur when the body’s immune system accidentally attacks healthy cells of the skin. Both the diseases are chronic and inflammatory medical conditions that manifest themselves on your skin, nails, hair, scalp and mucous membranes. Neither psoriasis nor lichen planus is contagious.

How do you know that you have Psoriasis and Lichen Planus?

Psoriasis is a genetic condition. Change in the environment can trigger psoriasis. One must look out for the following symptoms of psoriasis-

• Swathes of unnatural skin on your body
• Small blotches or large patches on the skin
• Pus-filled blisters

On the other hand, the symptoms of Lichen planus usually show up on the skin of the body, genitals or in the mouth. A person with this condition may encounter-

• Severe itching
• Rounded, purple, hardened bumps on the skin

If someone in your family has psoriasis, you could contract lichen planus. A clinical test of the lesions formed on your skin can reveal if you have psoriasis or lichen planus.

How homoeopathy approach the treatment of Psoriasis and Lichen Planus?

Homoeopathy is an eighteenth-century medical science that treats ailments with small doses of natural substances, which in larger doses cause the ailment. Homoeopathy believes that the body has the capacity to heal itself.

• The root cause of psoriasis and lichen planus lies in defects in the autoimmune system. Homoeopathy goes to the source of the problem and tries to rectify the defect. It aims at changing the autoimmune system so that it stops attacking its own cells. This kind of remedy is long-term.

• Before curing the symptoms of psoriasis and lichen planus, homoeopathy attempts to improve a person’s general health in the belief that only a healthy constitution can cure a disease.

• Homoeopathy identifies the reason that leads to the breakout of psoriasis. Another way that homoeopathy can decide which medication is ideal is the location and colour of the eruptions or abnormal skin and under what circumstances the condition is aggravated or allayed.

Many people grow disappointed with conventional medication as the symptoms of psoriasis and lichen planus keep recurring. The efficacy of homoeopathic treatment of psoriasis and lichen planus has been proved scientifically. Moreover, homoeopathic medicines have no side effects. If you feel that homoeopathy is the way to go, then contact a homoeopathic physician as soon as possible.
