What Are Abscess And Boils?
An abscess is a pocket of pus collection caused due to suppuration (i.e. formation or discharge of pus) after bacterial infection or injury. It can occur in any part of the body – outer surface, inner deeper organs or tissues. Even a boil, pustule or pimple can be called as a small abscess. It starts as a tender swelling with throbbing pain. However, if allowed to develop further, it becomes a hard painful swelling which results in draining of pus either inside or outside.
Generally, all abscesses feel warm due to increase in blood circulation; however, tubercular abscesses usually remain cold (hence, they are referred to as ‘cold abscesses’). They too need immediate critical care.
Lancing (cutting of the abscess) can be avoided with timely Homoeopathic treatment to – Reduce the size of inflammation,reduce the pain, promote suppuration and drainage. Homoeopathy can effectively increase the immune system which helps to overcome the recurrent abscess and boils. Common medicines indiacted in case of abscess which are of recent duration are Hepar sulph,calc sulph ,silicea .They should only be taken after consulting your homoeopath
Acid-pepsin Dyspepsia (Acidity)
Gastritis, Peptic Ulcers & Duodenal Ulcers-we call this problem an A- type personality complaint. Increase in the secretion of the acid in the stomach & damage to the mucus wall that prevents this acid from affecting the stomach causes this problem. Faulty diet, inappropriate use of medications & stress are important causes of this problem. The commonest symptom is pain in the abdomen and hunger pains. These pains are ameliorated temporarily by eating.
What Are Acnes?
Acne or pimples ,frequently seen in young & teenage. This occurs mainly due to the action of hormones on the oil glands in the skin. The draining ducts of the oil glands get blocked and not able to drain the oil secretion. The oil and cells of blocked gland help to grow organisms. Thus, it results in the formation of pimples or acne. Symptoms: Whiteheads and blackheads (Comedones): the enlarged and plugged hair follicles.
Homoeopathic treatment :
Acutes & Homoeopathy
Acutes & Homoeopathy
It’s a common myth that Homoeopathic medicines act slowly & can’t help much in acute complaints. Homoeopathy acts effectively in many acute complaints giving quick relief. Some common acute complaints • Viral Fever • Influenza (Flu) • Diarrheoa (Acute Gastro-enteritis) • Dysentery
What Are Adenoids?
Adenoids (or pharyngeal tonsil, or nasopharyngeal tonsil) are a mass of lymphoid tissue situated posterior to the nasal cavity, in the roof of the nasopharynx, where the nose blends into the throat. Normally, in children, they make a soft mound in the roof and posterior wall of the nasopharynx, just above and behind the uvula. Adenoid hypertrophy (or enlarged adenoids) is the unusual growth (“hypertrophy”) of the adenoids. Symptoms: The symptoms caused by enlarged adenoids are mostly due to where this lymphoid tissue is located. The adenoids are in the midline of the nasopharynx, and the Eustachian tubes open from either ear to the right and left of them. Eustachian tubes ventilate the middle ear. Very large adenoids will block air passage in both the nose and the ears. This obstruction of normal air ventilation can lead to both sinusitis and otitis media. In children with excessive middle ear infections and chronic middle ear fluid, there is a high bacterial count in the adenoids as compared to children without problematic otitis media, even if the size of the adenoids is small. The adenoids in these cases provides a reservoir of pathogenic bacteria that cause ear infections and subsequent middle ear effusions (fluid). IT also leads to adenoid facies where the child has to breathe through mouth, drooling of saliva, protruding eyes. The nasopharynx lies right above the throat. Splashes of excessive “drip” from infected adenoids may land directly on the vocal cords. Although the larynx and vocal cords do not ordinarily become infected from adenoiditis, their mucosa does become irritated. The vocal cords are extremely sensitive to touch, and any fluid drops falling on them cause an irresistible urge to cough. Adenoiditis therefore is one of the causes of cough.
In allopathy the only treatment is surgical removal of the adenoids is a procedure called adenoidectomy. With homoeopathy not only we can control and decrease the growth of adenoids, the underlying tendency for allergy can be cured after carefully choosen homoeopathic remedy.
What Is Allergic Rhinitis?
Rhinitis is defined as inflammation of the nasal membranes. Allergic rhinitis is a collection of symptoms, mostly in the nose and eyes, which occur when you breathe in something you, are allergic to, such as dust, dander, or pollen. Causes: An allergen is something that triggers an allergy. When a person with allergic rhinitis breathes in an allergen such as pollen or dust, the body releases chemicals, including histamine. This causes allergy symptoms such as itching, swelling, and mucus production. A similar reaction occurs with allergy to mold, animal dander, dust, and similar inhaled allergens. Hot, dry, windy days are more likely to have increased amounts of pollen in the air than cool, damp, rainy days when most pollen is washed to the ground. Allergies are common. Your genes and environment may make you more prone to allergies. Whether or not you are likely to develop allergies is often passed down through families. If both your parents have allergies, you are likely to have allergies. The chance is greater if your mother has allergies. The tendency to develop allergic, or IgE-mediated, reactions to extrinsic allergens (proteins capable of causing an allergic reaction) has a genetic component. In susceptible individuals, exposure to certain foreign proteins leads to allergic sensitization, which is characterized by the production of specific IgE directed against these proteins. This specific IgE coats the surface of mast cells, which are present in the nasal mucosa. When the specific protein (eg, a specific pollen grain) is inhaled into the nose, it can bind to the IgE on the mast cells, leading to immediate and delayed release of a number of mediators. Symptoms:
Treatment: Allergy occurs due to hypersentivity. Unless and until sensitivity of person is not reduced allergy cannot be cured . Only a correct similimum can cure the patient of hypersentivity after taking the history of patient in details .
What is an allergy? Allergy is intensified response of the body to certain external or internal agents, Symptoms:
Homoeopathic treatment: Comparatively homoeopathy is best amongst system. Benefits of homoeopathy are known to all those who have taken medicines for their allergies and have got cured permanently. Respiratory allergy, asthma, skin allergy, pollen allergy, frequent colds, childhood asthma, etc. just to name a few, are treated with tremendous success with well planned homoeopathic treatment.
What is Alzheimer’s Disease? Alzheimer’s disease one of several disorders that cause the gradual loss of brain cells.. The research has shown that Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia; in fact 70% of dementias are due to Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms: There is decline in thinking skills and progressive deterioration of brain performance. Common symptoms include a gradual loss of memory, problems with reasoning or judgment, disorientation, difficulty in learning, loss of language skills, etc. People with dementia also experience changes in their personalities and behavioral problems. The cumulative effect of all these changes becomes distressing both to the individual and their families. It can affect to any social, economic, ethnic or geographical boundaries; eventually those affected are unable to care for themselves and need help with all aspects of daily life. The magnitude of this disease is huge, there are estimated to be 17-25 million people worldwide with Alzheimer’s disease. Homoeopathic treatment: Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is an important step in getting appropriate treatment, care, and support services. There is no one diagnostic test that can detect if a person has Alzheimer’s disease, but the process involves several kinds of tests and may take more than one day to complete the evaluation. Evaluations may include the following steps:
Definition: Anaemia is a condition in which very few Red Blood Cells (RBCs) or less than the normal amount of haemoglobin is produced in the body. Haemoglobin, comprising protein and iron, is the substance in the RBCs which picks up oxygen from the lungs and distributes it throughout the body for producing energy. Haemoglobin also transports carbon dioxide from the body to the lungs for exhalation. Anaemia results in less oxygen and, so, less energy. 1.Iron deficiency anaemia 2.Blood loss anaemia (decrease in circulating RBCs) 3.Haemolytic anaemia (destruction of RBCs) 4.Megaloblastic / Pernicious anaemia (due to deficiency of Vitamin B12) 5.Aplastic anaemia (inability to produce new RBCs) Around 200 crore people worldwide (20% being women) are afflicted by anaemia, with iron deficiency being the most common cause. About 55% of adolescents in India are anaemic Symptoms: Homeopathic treatment : Anaemia, by itself, is not a disease; it may signify the deficiency of a nutrient such as iron, the side-effects of certain medications, or other factors. So, the root cause of anaemia varies from one individual to another. For example, despite balanced diet and nutrient supplements, many people still experience anaemia due to nutritional deficiencies, which may be due to reduced nutrient absorption capacity in their bodies. Thus, individualized treatment targetting the root cause is the ultimate solution. Homeopathy helps in identifying the exact root cause through the history of the individual’s lifestyle, physical, mental and emotional factors. In case of anaemia due to nutritional deficiency, the right homeopathic medicines boost the absorption capacity, thereby covering deficiency and uprooting anaemia in the patient. Homeopathic remedies are also available for treating anaemia due to heavy menstrual bleeding, after-effects of diseases like malaria and other causative factors. At MindHeal Homeopathy, we provide treatment for mild as well as chronic anaemia. Our focus is on uprooting the disease and boosting overall health, rather than just treating the symptoms and providing temporary relief. We not only treat the disease in the person, but we heal the person having the disease…
