HEEL PAIN, Causes, Exercises, Home Remedies, Prevention, Homeopathic Treatment
Heel pain is one of the most common ailments of the foot. The most common form of heel pain is pain at the bottom of the heel. It tends to occur for no apparent reason and is often worse when placing weight on the foot. The pain can be a sharp, shooting pain or ulcerative pain or splinter like pain or present as a tearing feeling at the bottom of the heel. As the condition progresses, there may be a throbbing pain or there may be soreness that radiates up the back of the leg. Pain may also radiate into the arch of the foot.
CAUSES OF HEEL PAIN
* Irritation or inflammation of planter fascia (a thick ligament attached to the bottom of the heel and spread out into the ball of the foot, attaching to the base of the toes. The plantar fascia is made of dense, fibrous connective tissue that will stretch very little. It acts like a shock absorber)
* Spur growth on the heel bone (If the inflammation of planter fascia continues, the planter fascia partially tears away from the heel. The body will fill this torn area with calcium, developing it as a bone, resulting in a heel spur, calcaneal spur)
* Being overweight
* Wearing shoes with poor foot beds
* Heel bone stress fracture
* Cyst or tumor on heel
* Arthritis i.e RA, Gout
* Tarsal tunnel syndrome
* Abnormal arch of foot
* Retrocalcaneal bursitis
* Tendoachilles bursitis
* Haglund's deformity
* Calcaneal epiphysitis
* Thining of bone
EXERCISES FOR HEEL PAIN
Exercises to stretch the calf muscles may help. Here are some exercises:
* Sit in a chair, hold the leg out straight, and flex and extend at the ankle joint. Repeat 10 times on each foot.
* Stand facing a wall. Place the foot that has the heel pain behind the other foot. Keep the front knee bent and the back leg straight, with the foot on the ground. Pull the hips forward toward the wall until you feel a stretch in the calf of the lower leg. Repeat 10 times. If there is pain in both heels, stretch both calves.
Home care can help get rid of heel pain that is not severe. This includes:
Rest: Avoid running or standing for long periods, walking on hard surfaces, and any activities that may stress the heels.
Ice: Place an ice-pack wrapped in cloth on the affected area for about 15 minutes, but not directly onto the skin.
Footwear: Shoes that fit well and provide good support are crucial, especially for athletes.
Foot supports: Wedges and heel cups can help relieve symptoms.
Prevention of heel pain involves reducing the stress on that part of the body. Tips include:
* wearing shoes when on hard ground, and not going barefoot
* maintaining a healthy body weight to reduce stress on the heels
* choosing footwear with heels made of material that can absorb some stress, or using inserted heel pads
* ensure shoes fit properly and do not have worn down heels or soles
* avoid shoes that seem to trigger pain
* rest your feet rather than standing if you are susceptible to heel pain
* warm up properly before engaging in sports and activities that may place lots of stress on the heels
* wear suitable sports shoes for each task

MIGRAINE, Types, Symptoms, Stages, Causes, Diagnosis, Homeopathic Treatment
A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head.
Many people also have symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound. Migraine is a common health condition, affecting around one in every five women and around one in every 15 men. They usually begin in early adulthood.
Types Of Migraine
There are several types of migraine, including:
Migraine With Aura
Where there are specific warning signs just before the migraine begins, such as seeing flashing lights.
Migraine Without Aura
The most common type, where the migraine occurs without the specific warning signs.
Migraine Aura Without Headache
Also known as silent migraine – where an aura or other migraine symptoms are experienced, but a headache doesn't develop.
Some people have migraines frequently, up to several times a week. Other people only have a migraine occasionally. It's possible for years to pass between migraine attacks.
Symptoms Of Migraine
* The main symptom of a migraine is usually an intense headache on one side of the head
Stages Of Migraine
Migraines often develop in distinct stages, although not everyone goes through all of these:
Prodromal (Pre-headache) Stage
Changes in mood, energy levels, behaviour and appetite that can occur several hours or days before an attack.
About one in three people with migraines have temporary warning symptoms, known as aura, before a migraine. These include:
* visual problems – such as seeing flashing lights, zig-zag patterns or blind spots
Aura symptoms typically develop over the course of about five minutes and last for up to an hour. Some people may experience aura followed by only a mild headache or no headache at all.
Usually a pulsating or throbbing pain on one side of the head, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and/or extreme sensitivity to bright light and loud sounds, which can last for four to 72 hours.
When the headache and other symptoms gradually fade away, although you may feel tired for a few days afterwards.
Causes Of Migraine
Though migraine causes aren't understood, genetics and environmental factors appear to play a role. Migraines may be caused by changes in the brainstem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve, a major pain pathway. Imbalances in brain chemicals — including serotonin, which helps regulate pain in your nervous system — also may be involved. Researchers are still studying the role of serotonin in migraines.
Serotonin levels drop during migraine attacks. This may cause your trigeminal nerve to release substances called neuropeptides, which travel to your brain's outer covering (meninges). The result is migraine pain. Other neurotransmitters play a role in the pain of migraine, including calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP).
A number of factors may trigger migraines, including:
Hormonal Changes In Women
Fluctuations in estrogen seem to trigger headaches in many women. Women with a history of migraines often report headaches immediately before or during their periods, when they have a major drop in estrogen. Others have an increased tendency to develop migraines during pregnancy or menopause. Hormonal medications, such as oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy, also may worsen migraines. Some women, however, find their migraines occur less often when taking these medications.
Aged cheeses, salty foods and processed foods may trigger migraines. Skipping meals or fasting also can trigger attacks.
Alcohol, especially wine, and highly caffeinated beverages may trigger migraines.
Stress at work or home can cause migraines.
Bright lights and sun glare can induce migraines, as can loud sounds. Strong smells — including perfume, paint thinner, secondhand smoke and others — can trigger migraines in some people.
Changes In Wake-Sleep Pattern
Missing sleep or getting too much sleep may trigger migraines in some people, as can jet lag.
Intense physical exertion, including sexual activity, may provoke migraines.
Changes In The Invironment
A change of weather or barometric pressure can prompt a migraine.
Oral contraceptives and vasodilators, such as nitroglycerin, can aggravate migraines.
Diagnosis Of Migraine
If you have migraines or a family history of migraines, a doctor trained in treating headaches will likely diagnose migraines based on medical history, symptoms, and a physical and neurological examination. The doctor may also recommend more tests to rule out other possible causes for pain in head as:
The doctor may order blood test for blood vessel problems, infections in your spinal cord or brain, and toxins in your system.
An MRI uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the brain and blood vessels. MRI scans help doctors diagnose tumors, strokes, bleeding in the brain, infections, and other brain and nervous system (neurological) conditions.
A CT scan uses a series of X-rays to create detailed cross-sectional images of the brain. This helps doctors diagnose tumors, infections, brain damage, bleeding in the brain and other possible medical problems that may be causing headaches.
The doctor may recommend a spinal tap (lumbar puncture) if he or she suspects infections, bleeding in the brain or another underlying condition. In this procedure, a thin needle is inserted between two vertebrae in the lower back to remove a sample of cerebrospinal fluid for analysis in a lab.
ASTHMA, Symptoms, Types, Causes, Prevention, Homeopathic Treatment
What Are Signs & Symptoms Of Asthma?
Asthma symptoms vary from person to person. You may have infrequent asthma attacks, have symptoms only at certain times — such as when exercising — or have symptoms all the time.

Exercise Induced Asthma
It occurs while exercising.
It is triggered by workplace irritants such as chemical fumes, gases or dust etc.
It is triggered by airborne substances, such as pollen, mold spores, cockroach waste or particles of skin and dried saliva shed by pets
What Are Causes Of Asthma?
Asthma may be due to a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Exposure to various irritants and substances that trigger allergies can trigger signs and symptoms of asthma. Asthma triggers are different from person to person and can include:
* Airborne substances, such as pollen, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste
* Respiratory infections, such as the common cold

About Normal Sleep
An average person spends about one-third of his life sleeping. Normally people (adults) require about 6-9 hours of sound sleep to function well but some people can do very well even with 4-5 hours of sleep. It must be understood that the quantity of sleep is not the prime requirement. It is the quality of 'restfulness' that is more important.
Infants require much more sleep as compared to adults and they can sleep for up to 18 hours a day (average between 16- 20 hours). By the time they are 3-6 months old, they require about 15 hours of sleep. Children older than this require about 10-13 hours of sleep daily. Pre-teens and teenagers require anywhere between 9-10 hours of sleep.
As age advances above 50 years, the sleep duration reduces to about 5 to 6 hours at night.
Normal sleep is of two types:
Slow-wave (non-REM) sleep
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep
Slow-wave (non-REM) sleep:
Non-REM sleep lasts about 70-90 minutes. It has four stages as follows:
- Transitional stage (lasting about 1-7 minutes)
- Light sleep
- Moderately deep sleep (about 20 min after falling asleep)
- Deep sleep
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep:
This is a very important stage of sleep
- It usually occurs within 50-90 minutes of falling asleep
- Initially lasts 5-10 minutes; gradually this stage lengthens until the final REM period lasts 50 minutes
- Most dreaming occurs during this phase of sleep
- The eyeballs of a sleeping person will make rapid side-to-side movements under the lids during REM sleep
- The muscles of the body are very relaxed during this phase of sleep
- REM sleep is particularly useful for growth and repair of the brain itself, while the non-REM sleep is useful for repair of the rest of the body
Normal Sleep Pattern:
REM sleep and non-REM sleep alternate with each other during the normal sleep pattern. The cycle has been illustrated below:
This entire cycle repeats itself about 3-5 times during the entire night. Each cycle lasts for about 90 minutes. About 50% of an infant's sleep is constituted by REM sleep and about 20% of an adult's sleep is constituted by REM sleep.
Why is sleep important?
Having enough quality sleep is vital to the emotional and physical well being of a person and hence all the importance given to sleep is justified.
Sleep patterns:Sleep patterns may vary from person to person. Some people are comfortable going to sleep early and waking up early. Others may be late sleepers and used to pushing off late from the bed in morning. Then there are also some kinds of people who may be used to taking regular naps during the daytime whereas others may not feel the need for this at all.

Kidney stones are clumps developed from solidified crystals in the kidney or urinary tract. The urine has all the ingredients that form the stone, but all these ideally pass through without our knowledge. When there is an imbalance in any of these substances, the crystals cluster together into stones. The size of the stone can be as small as a grain of sand to one as large as the size of a golf ball. The most commonly found kidney stone in humans is usually made of calcium oxalate. Other rare varieties of kidney stones include those made up of cystine, struvite (magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate), calcium phosphate, uric acid, etc.
Kidney stones are one of the most painful of urologic disorders. Men tend to be affected more frequently than women.
Causes of Kidney stone formation
Certain foods may promote stone formation in people who are susceptible. This stone formation is enhanced when there is increased intake of calcium, calcium oxalate, uric acid or salt in our diet, with an inadequate intake of fluids. A positive family history (genetic tendency) also makes a person prone to kidney stone formation.
Certain foods that increase the risk for kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals include Spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, peanuts, cocoa, beet, coffee, cola, nuts, strawberries, tomato juice, grapefruit juice, apple juice, soda (acidic and contains phosphorus), all types of tea, and berries.
Symptoms of Kidney stones:
Kidney stones can remain asymptomatic until they obstruct the flow of urine. When obstruction to the flow of urine occurs at some point of time, the patient starts experiencing acute symptoms. The patient usually presents with the most agonizing pain in the lower back just below the ribs, which often extends into the groin area (described as ‘loin to groin’ radiation of pain). The patient may also experience nausea, vomiting, blood in the urine (haematuria), restlessness and fever (if infection is present).
Stones less than 5 mm in size usually pass out spontaneously; however, the majority of stones greater than 6 mm require some form of intervention, especially so if the stone is stuck causing persistent obstruction and/or infection of the urinary tract.
The suggestion about homeopathic treatment
When the stone size is small, homeopathy is likely to help in the passage of stone as well as in relieving the agonizing pain caused by the same. If the stone size is larger, or the stone is impacted, or there are multiple stones, then the patient is better treated surgically. However, even after surgical removal of stones, homeopathy still has a role to play in preventing its recurrence (as the chance of having recurring stones are about 70-80%).
Life Force Homeopathy has succeeded in treating several cases of kidney stones.

Stammering or stuttering is a type of speech impairment where sounds or syllables are repeated involuntarily or there are unintended gaps in between words when the person is unable to make the desired sound. People develop stutters due to genetic flaws, motor functioning defects, coordination problems or due to psychological stressors. The condition can result in anxiety, depression and withdrawal from verbal communication.
A stutter can be practised away or corrected by speech therapy but there is no specific medicine that can be used to cure stammering. Homeopathic medicines can provide relief from the symptoms by fixing flawed nervous functions, improve motor coordination and modify the vocal apparatus. Different homeopathic treatments can be used depending on the nature of the condition. The following is a list of homeopathic remedies and lifestyle changes that can be used to address the problem:
1. Foods rich in vitamin B6 like nuts, fish, bananas and chicken should be consumed regularly by children who have a stutter to help with motor functions.
2. Adults should avoid caffeine, tobacco and other recreational drugs as they cause hyperstimulation of the nervous system.
3. Stramonium(jimsonweed) can be used when the stammering is violent and the person distorts his facial muscles heavily in order to be able to speak.
4. Lychopodium (clubmoss) can be useful for stammering as well as depression, memory weakness and sleep problems. This is especially helpful if the patient struggles with the last few words of a sentence.
5. Spigelia is beneficial for a mild stutter at the beginning of a sentence, often followed by undisturbed speech.
6. Causticum is prescribed when emotional excitability causes stammering, twitching of the facial muscles or problems in the vocal cords.
7. Staphysagria can aid in reducing social anxiety which often causes stammering i.e. the stammer only appears while interacting with strangers or authority figures.
8. Nux vomica (strychnine) is the medicine to use when stammering is a result of extreme stress or overwork.
9. Fright or shock often causes speechlessness or stammering. Aconite can provide immediate relief in such cases.
10. Lachesis is an effective homeopathic medicine when the patient stutters over specific letters or syllables.
11. Gelsemium is used to treat stuttering after severe viral infections when the patient complains of a heavy tongue and lack of general coordination.
