Alcoholism is a chronic, often progressive disease that can be fatal. The condition involves a preoccupation with alcohol and impaired control over alcohol intake. Alcoholism usually involves physical dependence on the drug alcohol, but genetic, psychological and social factors contribute to this addiction.

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is the name for the symptoms that occur when a heavy drinker suddenly stops or significantly reduces their alcohol intake. Prolonged and excessive use of alcohol leads to mental and physical dependence. The withdrawal syndrome is largely a response of the body to lack of alcohol. With Alcohol withdrawal, one may experience a combination of physical and emotional symptoms, from mild anxiety and fatigue to nausea. Some symptoms of Alcohol withdrawal are as severe as hallucinations and seizures. Withdrawal usually begins 6 to 24 hours after the last drink.

HAY FEVER

Hay fever (allergic rhinitis or pollinosis), is an allergy characterized by sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, a runny nose and a burning sensation of the palate and throat. It is usually caused by allergies to airborne substances such as dust, moulds, pollens, animal fur and feathers.

Hay fever is most common in people with a family history of similar complaints or a personal history of eczema, hives (urticaria), and/or asthma.

Allium cepa (All-c.)

This remedy, prepared from the red onion, treats the symptom of streaming eyes and nose that is worse in warm and stuffy rooms. (People who need All-c may even crave and feel better for eating onions.) Their nasal discharge burns while tears from the eyes are bland – the opposite to Euphrasia’s symptoms. Sneezing can be intense and frequent and eyes are sensitive to the light.

Arsenicum.
 
Many symptoms of this remedy corresponds to hay fever; it has a thin watery discharge from the nose which excoriates the upper lip, but still the nose is stuffed up. There is much sneezing from irritation in the nose.the coryza is worse after midnight or from a change of weather.excessive sneezing and fluent coryza with a thin acrid discharge are its indications

Nux vomica (Nux-v.)

This is one of the best remedies for when there is lots of sneezing, streaming from the eyes and nose, and an irritable, nasty mood.  (If they are sweet tempered, it is unlikely to help.) The symptoms are worse in dry air and relieved when the atmosphere is damp.

Natrum muriaticum (Nat-m.)

Initially, there is a streaming, bland discharge from both the eyes and nose with lots of sneezing.  Later, there is nasal discharge that is thick and clear like the white of an egg with loss of taste and smell.  This is not one of the main remedies for hay fever but it can bring great relief to the type who gets easily burned, feel generally miserable, uncomfortable, blotchy and irritated in the sun.

Sabadilla
 hay fever with watery discharge, profuse coryza and frontal pains. There is spasmodic and continual sneezing with only slight catarrhal discharge. It will often cut short an attack.
Should be used to this end in the higher potencies.
 
Sinapis nigra
hay fever; the membrane of the nose is hot and dry, no discharge, worse afternoon and evening.

Kali bichromicum ( Kali-bi.)

Consider this remedy when thick, stringy, green or yellowish mucus from the nose or throat is present. There may also be a post-nasal or pain at the root of the nose relieved by hard pressure.

Sulphur (Sulph.)

Watery, burning nasal discharge, or a blocked nose, when outside. Frequent sneezing. Blocking of nose on alternate sides. Burning pain in eyes. Symptoms worsened by warmth and becoming warm in bed. Better for being in open air. May be lazy, opinionated, and desire sweets, alcohol, and spicy food.

Psorinum
great sensitiveness to cold Psoric or neuro arthritic soil indicates the remedy.

Pulsatilla pratensis (Puls.)

The main indications for this remedy are a weepy, needy, state of mind, together with discharges that are thick, bland (not acrid) and green or yellow.  Pulsatilla frequently has one side of the nose blocked or congested.


Asthma

Asthma

According to the etiology, bronchial asthma is divided in the following groups:
Allergic (extrinsic/ atopic) Asthma
This type of asthma usually starts in childhood and is often preceded by eczema. But most of the young adults.developing asthma also fall in this category. Genetic factors also play a significant role i this. In this type of asthma the allergen leads to production of excessive (IgE) immunoglobulins.
Emotional Asthma
Psychological factors (like anxiety, emotional stress etc) are often considered to be the sole cause of some asthmatic attacks, but it is still not certain whether it can be the sole cause or is only a precipitating factor.
 Infective or Intrinsic Asthma
his is not hereditary or allergic, but may be caused by, or at least associated with upper respiratory tract or bronchial infection which is usually viral.
Occupational asthma 
This can occur in certain industries in which there is exposure to metallic dusts (esp. platinum salts), biological detergents, toluene diisocyanate, polyurethane, flour and dust from grains etc.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Recurrent episode of paroxysmal dyspnoea (difficulty in breathing)The breathing is laboured, with a wheezing sound, mainly on expiration.

Asthma attacks often occur in the early hours of morning (when there is no immediate precipitating cause). During the attack patients often prefers to sit then lie down.

DIAGNOSIS of Asthma

clinically by a doctor. Allergen sensitivity tests, X-ray, spirometry, sputum and blood tests etc may be of use in finding the cause and severity of the condition.
its very different to
  • Bronchitis
  • Cardiac asthma
  • Renal asthma
  • Isolated attacks of non-paroxysmal dyspnoea.

Homeopathy Treatment

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which tries to ‘cure’ this disease, instead of trying to provide symptomatic relief. While dealing with a case of asthma, a homeopath not only records the symptoms of the disease but also studies the medical history, family history, physical and psychological characteristics of a person. This helps to find the cause, the precipitating factors, and the hereditary tendency etc.
Arsenicum 
 time of attacks is just after midnight. The patient has a great deal of anguish and restlessness; he cannot lie down for fear of suffocation. There is anxiety and general sweat, and if the patient drowses off he is awakened with burning pain and soreness in the chest.
Apis 
has a suffocative feeling, and the patient does not see how he can get another breath, and the Bromine patient breathes very deeply as it seems as if he could not get air enough into his lungs.
Ipecac 
spasmodic variety where the symptoms are great weight and anxiety about the chest; sudden wheezing, dyspnoea, threatening suffocation, aggravated by motion; the cough causes gagging and vomiting. The cough is constant, the chest seems full of phlegm.chest and a weak sensation in the chest which seems to come from the epigastrium, where there is a feeling of a lump; there is nausea, profuse salivation; the attack is preceded by a pricking sensation through the whole system.A pain extending around the forehead from one temple to other and a pain in the back.
Kali bichromicum 
attacks coming on about three or four o’clock in the morning, compelling the patient to sit up to breath; he sits up and bends forward which relives somewhat, as does also the expectoration of stringy yellow mucus, which is characteristic of the remedy.
Moschus
Intense anxiety, intense fear and a smothering sensation. It suits those of a sensitive, highly organized, nervous temperament; neurotic types when increased anxiety and nervousness predominate.
people, great desire to be alone!
Natrum sulphuricum
general symptoms are worse on change to damp weather.
Its symptoms are moist asthma, with a great deal of rattling in the chest. The symptom of looseness of the bowels after each attack has been repeatedly verified; in one case the patient was worse from aerated waters and alcohol.
Nux vomica
asthmatic attacks are brought on by gastric disturbances; simple spasmodic asthmas; there is some relief by belching, the patient must loosen the clothing. It must also be thought of in those who drink much coffee or liquor. Irritable bilious temperaments also correspond to the drug.A good symptom calling for Nux is a constricted felling at the lower part of the chest. Where there is much abdominal irritation present with much flatulence

Sjogren’s Syndrome

Sjogren’s Syndrome

What is Sjogren’s syndrome?

jogren’s syndrome features a combination of dry eyes, dry mouth, and another diseases of the connective tissues, most commonly rheumatoid arthritis.

Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disease, characterized by the abnormal production of antibodies in the blood that are directed against various tissues of the body. This particular autoimmune illness is caused by inflammation in the glands of the body. Inflammation of the lacrimal glands leads to decreased water production for tears and eye dryness. Inflammation of salivary glands leads to mouth dryness.

Sjogren’s syndrome that involves the gland inflammation (resulting in dryness of the eyes and mouth, etc.), but not associated with a connective tissue disease, is referred to as primary Sjogren’s syndrome. Secondary Sjogren’s syndrome involves not only gland inflammation, but is associated with a connective tissue disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or scleroderma.

Cause of Sjogren’s syndrome

exact cause of Sjogren’s syndrome is not known, there is growing scientific support for genetic (inherited) factors. The illness is sometimes found in other family members. It is also found more commonly in families that have members with other autoimmune illnesses, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune thyroid disease, juvenile diabetes, etc. 90% of Sjogren’s syndrome patients are female.

Sjogren’s syndrome Symptoms

Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome can involve the glands, as above, but there are also possible affects of the illness involving other organs of the body (extraglandular manifestations).

When the tear gland (lacrimal gland) is inflamed from Sjogren’s, the resulting eye dryness can progressively lead to eye irritation, decreased tear production, “gritty” sensation, infection, and serious abrasion of the dome of the eye (cornea).

Inflammation of the salivary glands can lead to mouth dryness, swallowing difficulties, dental decay, gum disease, mouth sores and swelling, stones and/or infection of parotid gland inside of the cheeks.

Other glands that can become inflamed, though less commonly, in Sjogren’s syndrome include those of the lining of the breathing passages (leading to lung infections) and vagina (sometimes noted as pain during intercourse).

Extraglandular (outside of the glands) problems in Sjogren’s syndrome include joint pain or inflammation (arthritis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, lung inflammation, lymph node enlargement, kidney, nerve, and muscle disease. A rare serious complication of Sjogren’s syndrome is inflammation of the blood vessels (vasculitis), which can damage the tissues of the body that are supplied by these vessels.

 How Is It Diagnosed?

• Medical exam
• Lab tests
• Chest X-rays
• Lip biopsy
• Schirmer test/slit-lamp exam (measures dryness of eyes)
• Urine test (for kidney function)

Sjogren’s syndrome Treatment

Conventional Therapy

The treatment of patients with Sjogren’s syndrome is directed toward the particular areas of the body that are involved and complications, such as infection. There is no cure for Sjogren’s syndrome.

Dryness of the eyes can be helped by artificial tears, eye lubricant ointments at night, and minimizing the use of hair dryers.
The dry mouth can be helped by drinking plenty of fluids, humidifying air, and good dental care to avoid dental decay. The glands can be stimulated to produce saliva by sucking on sugarless lemon drops or glycerin swabs. Additional treatment for the symptom of dry mouth are prescription medications that are saliva stimulants, such as pilocarpine (Salagen) and cevimeline (Evoxac). Vitamin E oil has been used with some success.

Salt water (saline) nasal sprays can help dryness in the passages of the nose. Vaginal lubricant should be considered for sexual intercourse.

Homeopathy Treatment for Sjogren’s syndrome

Some homeopathic medicines that have shown positive results in Sjogren’s syndrome or which cover the symptom picture well are:

Nux-m, Tub, Tub-m, Silica, Brass-n-o, Lapr, Pert-vc, Dulcamara, Antim-crud, Cuprum, Fl-acid, Puls

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.


Vitiligo

Author: Admin

Vitiligo

Vitiligo, also known as leucoderma, is a relatively common skin disorder, in which white spots or patches appear on the skin. These spots are caused by destruction or weakening of the pigment cells in those areas, resulting in the pigment being destroyed or no longer produced. In most cases, vitiligo is believed to be an autoimmune-related disorder. In vitiligo, only the colour of the skin is affected but texture and other skin qualities remain normal. The hair may also turn white that grows in areas affected by vitiligo.

It occurs when the melanocytes, cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or are unable to function. The precise cause of vitiligo is complex and not fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune,genetic, and environmental factors.

CAUSE of Vitiligo

·        Exact cause is not known.

·        Evidence points to autoimmune etiology.

·        Genetic predisposition is common.

·        Age: onset between 10-30 years.

LOCATION

  • Common sites, to start with, are pressure points, i.e. knuckles, elbows, lips.

LESION

  • Start as white localised macules.
  • Rounded, well defined at onset.
  • Adjacent lesions coalesce.
  • As they increase in size, become irregular.
  • Spread to involve greater parts of the body.
  • Depigmented lesion is surrounded by area of apparent hyper pigmentation.
  • No sensory loss in lesion.
  • Every little trauma heals with depigmentation.
  • Lesions are hypersensitive to sunlight.

Piles or Hemorrhoids

Piles or Hemorrhoids

The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is painless bright red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl. However, an internal hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body, becoming irritated and painful. This is known as a protruding hemorrhoid.

Symptoms of external piles may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. This condition is known as a thrombosed external hemorrhoid.

In addition, excessive straining, rubbing, or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching, which may produce a vicious cycle of symptoms.

Cause of Piles

  • Constipation and Prolonged straining at stool
  • Low fibre diet causing small caliber stool and straining during defecation.
  •  Sitting for prolonged period at closet.
  • Hypertension mainly in portal vein.
  • Obesity.
  • Sedentary life style.
  • Pregnancy causes hypertension and increases strain during bowel movements.
  • Increased use of alcohol and caffeine.
  • Lack of erect posture.
  • Familial tendency.
  •  Ageing – weakened support structures.

Types of Hemorrhoids:

External hemorrhoids – occur outside of anal verge (distal end of anal canal)

Internal hemorrhoids – occur inside the rectum.

Prolapsed hemorrhoids – Internal hemorrhoids that are much distended and pushed outside anus.

Strangulated hemorrhoids – If anal sphincter muscle goes into spasm and traps a prolapsed hemorrhoid outside the anal opening and supply of blood is cut.                          

Gradation of hemorrhoids

1) hemorrhoids project into the anal canal and often bleed but do not prolapse.

2) hemorrhoids may protrude beyond the anal verge with straining or defecating but reduce spontaneously when straining ceases.

4) hemorrhoids protrude spontaneously or with straining and require manual reduction.

5) hemorrhoids chronically prolapsed and cannot be reduced. They usually contain both internal and external components and may present malignancy.

Prevention of Piles

  • Drinking more fluids in routine.
  • Eating more dietary fibers.
  • Practicing better posture.
  • Reducing bowel movement strain and time.
  • Avoid wearing tight under clothes.
  • Washing the anus with cool water and soap may reduce swelling and increase blood supply for quick healing.
  • Exercises.
  • Using squat toilets may help.

  • What is Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Rheumatoid Arthritis is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation of the joints. This inflammation is chronic in nature and does not subside on its own. It causes destruction of the joint tissue. Rheumatoid Arthritis causes pain, swelling, stiffness and deformities in the joints. It affects a large number of people and can make it difficult for them to lead a normal life. It tends to limit the range of movement of the joints and consequently can make it difficult to do the normal day to day chores. Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA tends to occur more commonly after 40 years of age. This does not mean that it cannot occur in younger patients but it is more commonly seen in patients who are above 40. Similarly, more women are affected than men though the reason for the same is also not known.

     

    1. Causticum-one of the best Homeopathic remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis causing deformities

    Causticum is one of the best Homeopathic remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis where there are deformities in the joints. The patient tends to get weak over a period of time, with muscles losing their strength gradually but surely. The patient tends to be restless at night with the restlessness being centred more on the legs than any other part of the body. There may be contractions in the tendons causing severe pain and deformities. The pains are usually tearing and drawing in nature. In some cases, burning pains are also found. There is numbness and loss of sensation in the hands and other parts of the body. The muscles of the forearm and hands become weak and make it difficult to grip anything firmly. The ankles seem to be weak and cannot bear the weight of the body causing pain while walking. The gait may be unsteady and one even tends to fall while walking. The pains are better by warmth and more so from the warmth of bed.

     Caulophyllum – Homeopathic medicine for Rheumatoid Arthritis affecting small joints

    Caulophyllum, another very good Homeopathic medicine for Rheumatoid Arthritis, is primarily a woman’s remedy, which means that the symptoms pointing to its use are found more commonly in women. It affects the small joints much more as compared to the larger joints of the limbs. Therefore, it is more useful for the Rheumatoid Arthritis of the fingers of the hand and toes of the foot. The pains are erratic or flying in nature ie they change their position every now and then, in a matter of minutes. The patient feels pain in the right hand for some time and afterwards the pain gets better on its own but the pain starts to affect the left hand; then the pain in the left hand stops and shifts to a foot. The pain is severe and drawing in nature. The wrist joints ache and there is cutting pain on closing the hand.

     

    colchicum – Most common Homeopathic remedy for Rheumatoid arthritis

    Colchicum has been the mainstay of the treatment, when it comes to Homeopathic remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis and rightly so. It is more suited to the chronic rheumatic states.

The patient feels a sense of tingling in the finger nails. The problems tend to get aggravated in the warm weather.
