Diseases Treated with Homeopathy

ACNE

Definition:

 Acne or pimples is a common occurrence on the skin (more on the face and back) in young individuals during teenage years and youth years. Due to the hormonal changes taking place in the body during these years, eruptions called pimples appear on the facial skin. Acne are basically caused due to the blockage of the ducts of the sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin. This leads to retention of the oily secretion of the glands in the skin itself and when this gets infected with bacteria, it causes the formation of pustular eruptions. Thus acne is caused by the inflammatory process involving the sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
There can be many types of acne including acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, acne conglobata, nodular acne, etc. Acne may present as small, tender red bumps on the skin with no head or as pustular eruptions. In certain varieties, nodular eruptions develop and these healing with scarring. The rashes are common over the skin of the face, upper chest and back. Scarring is common especially where the patient has a tendency to “pick” the acne.

Remarks

Remarks: Acne or pimples is nothing but an expression of the inner hormonal process, which requires treatment at the inner level rather than treating it by local application of cream or antibiotics. Homeopathy offers excellent treatment in the cases of acne, which is effective, harmless and without any side-effects.

 

Suggestion About Homeopathic Treatment: 

Homeopathy offers extremely effective treatment for acne, during all the stages, including the obstinate versions such as nodular acne.

ANXIETY

Homoeopathic treatment of Anxiety disorders

Considering the genetic tendencies and the stress in the background as a cause of this disorder, it can be clearly perceived that treatment must be directed towards both of them. On this front, homoeopathy has a great role to play in the management of anxiety neurosis. Homoeopathy medicines working at the root level, can counter the genetic proneness to the condition. Homoeopathy has effective medicines to deal with the emotional and physical symptoms associated with disorder.
Over a period of time, the patients gain a better control of their symptoms and are able to manage things better than before. In case the anxiety is related to certain medical conditions or to the use of certain drugs, the management of these cases differs slightly. In these patients, we have to address the primary disease and treat that in order to relieve the patient of the symptoms of anxiety. In case of substance induced anxiety, the identified drug has to be stopped or an alternative medication (which does not induce anxiety) has to be used. The point that should be emphasized is that the benefits of homoeopathy are devoid of any side-effects in contrast to conventional anxiolytics and anti-depressants prescribed for the condition. Homoeopathy is very strongly recommended for anxiety neurosis.

The homeopathic approach to treat Anxiety Neurosis

Homeopathy is a scientific medical alternative for treating a wide range of physical and psychological ailments, one amongst them being Anxiety neurosis. It should be emphasized that homoeopathy treats the patient who is diseased and not just the disease. The basic approach in homeopathy is to evaluate the case of anxiety neurosis in its whole extent, whereby a lot of emphasis is given to the patient as a whole besides minutely studying various aspects of the mind. Every patient of anxiety neurosis is evaluated as an individual case and treated as such. The treatment of Anxiety neurosis has to be planned strategically on a long-term basis.

ASTHMA

What is to be treated? 

When we talk about the treatment of asthma in children, we have to be clear about ‘what is to be treated in the case of asthma?’ Going back to the causes of asthma, let us recall that asthma is not just a disease of the lungs. Asthma is a multi-factorial, deep level disorder involving the immunological system of the body, having symptomatic expressions at the level of the lungs. With this understanding of the disease, it may be clearly perceived that the any treatment targeted simply at the level of lung symptoms will have little help. Just to relieve the symptoms of breathlessness and cough will prove too superficial an approach, when we are looking at the long term goal of treating the disease at a root level.

The homeopathic approach to treating Child Asthma

Homeopathy is a scientific medical alternative for treating a wide range of chronic ailments. The basic approach in homeopathy is to evaluate the disease of childhood asthma in its whole extent, whereby a lot of emphasis is given to the patient as a whole besides minutely studying various aspects of the child asthma.

Homeopathy firmly believes in enhancing body’s own defense mechanism to maintain the healthy status. The homeopathic treatment is aimed at enhancing body’s own healing capacity so that the human system does not react adversely to the allergens which are considered external factors affecting asthma.

As a rule, homeopathy never looks at child Asthma as a local disease. Asthma in children (asthmatic bronchitis) has been considered as a local expression of a system disturbance. As per the classical homeopathy, we believe in constitutional prescribing. This calls for individual case study in every case of asthma. There is no single specific remedy for all the cases of asthma. The exact treatment is determined only on in-depth evaluation of individual case.

Does it work?

It does work. When we hear the medical fraternity declaring childhood asthma as a incurable entity, we homeopaths feel sad and upset because this disorder is absolutely curable. I have treated hundreds of cases of childhood asthma and most of them have been completely cured and a few with reduced frequency and intensity of attacks.

Children suffering from asthma, when treated with homeopathy, not only their asthma is cured or well controlled, but also they become stronger individuals with enhanced resistance power. This is because homeopathy does not treat asthma per se, but treats the patient as a whole.

Treatment of acute attack of Asthma

It is possible to treat an acute attack of asthma in children with correctly chosen homeopathic medicine. However, it requires careful study of every episode as one requires to evaluate the factors which may have precipitated the attack, the exact symptoms, the factors which make the attack worse or better, etc. However, in some cases, if modern medicines ( such as broncho-dilators or antiallergenic drugs) are administered during the severe attack, when the child is on homeopathic medication, it does not interfere with the homeopathic treatment.
I would very strongly recommend Homeopathy for all the asthmatic children and adults.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Definition

ADHD is a condition in which a child or an adult consistently displays certain characteristic behaviors over a period of time. The behavior patter includes: inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD is one of the most common disorders among children (3-5%) and often continues into adolescence and adulthood.

Remarks

Scientists have not yet identified a single cause responsible for ADHD. Aggressive research in this field indicates that ADHD is more due to improper functioning of brain where there is lower level of activity in some parts of the brain that may cause inattention. Moreover, attention disorders tend to run in families, indicating influence of genetics at the root of this disorder.

As ADHD affects entire constitution of an individual, it calls for in-depth constitutional approach for its management.
The science of homeopathy is based on the concept that disease is total affliction of body and prescription of homeopathy is based on analysis of physical, emotional, and genetic make up of an individual. Homeopathy works at root level to bring deviated harmony of body back to normalcy.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment

Homeopathy is very strongly recommended for ADHD. Homeopathy is very effective to trim down hyperactivity and impulsiveness. There is significant improvement in attention span of an individual following homeopathy treatment. One more issue that has to be considered in the treatment of children is related to safety. The important aspect is that homeopathy is absolutely safe and without any side effects whatsoever

AUTISM

Definition

Autism is a complex neurological disorder detected in children in their initial three years of life, which is result of impaired functioning of the brain, expressing itself in the form of inability for social and communication skills, impaired intellectual faculty and hence affecting the developmental of the child. The exact cause behind autism is not yet fully understood.
Estimated 1.5 million American children and adults, over 1.7 million children in India and about 0.2% of the world population is affected by this disorder, affecting all races almost equally.

Causes of Autisms

There are structural and functional changes in the brain in the patients with autism. However, the exact cause for these changes are not fully understood. Some of the triggering factors considered responsible for Autism are:

  • * Genetic predisposition
  • * Exposure to environmental chemicals
  • * Intake of some drugs, medicines during pregnancy
  • * Metabolic imbalance
  • * Vaccinations
  • * Symptoms of autism: Autism can present with a wide spectrum of symptoms, also in varied severity, mild, moderate to severe. The symptoms may present in different combinations. The major symptoms relate with:
  • * Marked deficits in communication and social interaction
  • * Language impairment
  • * Preoccupation with fantasy
  • * Abnormal behavior, such as repetitive acts and excessive possessiveness to certain objects such as car, doll, keys
  • * Intellectual impairment
  • * The common end symptoms could be some or many of the following:
  • * Annoying obstinacy in behavior
  • * Poor verbal expression, uses gesture to point out for his needs
  • * Repeating words or phrases
  • * Laughing, crying without apparent cause
  • * Prefers solitude
  • * Throws Tantrums
  • * Difficulty in social interaction with his age or elders

It may be noted that autism affects the developmental of the intellectual faculties. The autistic children are able to express love and affection and also can respond to love.

 

BRONCHITIS

Definition

Bronchitis refers to inflammation of windpipes inside the lungs. Bronchitis is observed in people of all ages and both the sexes. The common symptoms of the condition include cough with expectoration and difficulty in breathing. Over a time period cough becomes continuous and productive.

Remarks

Sometime this inflammation of windpipes follows entry and infection caused by microorganisms and is termed as acute bronchitis. If this inflammation is present over long time period or waxes and wanes, it is termed as chronic bronchitis. Yet, in one another situation this irritation and inflammation is due to the exposure to various agents (like air pollution, pollens, smoke, perfumes, etc) and is termed as allergic bronchitis or asthmatic bronchitis. However the root cause of the condition includes genetic and heredity factors that make one prone to the condition.

With this understanding it can be clearly perceived that chronic and allergic bronchitis are in fact constitutional disorders that find their local expression at the level of lungs. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach towards its management.
Homeopathy medicines are prescribed on the basis of presenting complaints along with the physical, emotional and genetic make up that individualizes a person. This constitutional approach makes homeopathy medicines work at root level thus taking care of heredity and genetic factors. Homeopathy medicines are very effective in managing acute expressions of bronchitis as well as play a vital role in preventing relapse of the condition.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment

Homeopathy is very strongly recommended for all stages and variants of bronchitis.

ECZEMA

Disappears to reappear

For years, eczema was treated externally by using creams and lotions, as if it was an ‘external’ disease! Most patients who treated themselves using such external application soon realized that eczema always returned on stopping such medicines. The patients also realized that eczema required treatment which should be much more than just cream application. It should be working at a much deeper level.
There comes homeopathy, the medical system that firmly believes in treating all skin diseases internally, without suppressing them from outside. For eczema and all related conditions such as Allergic dermatitis, Eczematous dermatitis, Contact dermatitis, Atopic skin disease, Infantile eczema, etc. homeopathy has individually programmed treatment, which goes to the root of eczema and heals eczema from within.

What Is Eczema

Eczema is a generalized term that encompasses various inflammatory skin conditions. It is used synonymous with the term “Dermatitis” which means superficial inflammation of the skin that can be acute or chronic and can have a number of causes. Clinical features of eczema

Suggestion About Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathy offers extremely effective treatment for acne, during all the stages, including the obstinate versions such as nodular acne.

Acute eczema

  • * Weeping and crusting
  • * Blistering-usually with vesicles but, in fierce cases, with large blisters
  • * Redness, papules and swelling- usually with an ill,-defined border
  • * Scaling

Chronic eczema

  • * Less vesicular and exudative
  • * More scaly, pigmented and thickened
  • * More likely to show lichenification- a dry leathery thickened state, with increased skin markings, secondary to repeated scratching or rubbing; and
  • * More likely to fissure

Myths about eczema

  • * Frequent bathing of the affected areas is helpful and soothing – frequent bathing and long, hot showers should be avoided: moisturizing preparation instead of soaps should be used and moisturizers also applied liberally after bathing should be helpful.
  • * Eczema is contagious – eczema is not contagious, and one can’t acquire the condition by coming in to contact with eczema suffers or their belongings.
  • * Only children get eczema – although it is common in children. The condition is often seen later in life.

Homeopathy treatment for eczema

Homeopathy treatment for any disease is essentially based on the understanding of ‘treat the patient and not the disease’. Well, when you treat the patient as a whole, the disease gets automatically treated at a deeper level. That is what precisely happens when one undergoes homeopathic treatment for eczema, where the chances of relapse are minimized after a thorough treatment.

Eczema is curable with homeopathy. Acute, chronic and recurring eczema find great long-term treatment in homeopathy. The homeopathy treatment of eczema, of any skin disease for that matter, is with oral medicines. Homeopathy does not believe in local treatment with creams. The local treatment with creams and lotions is temporary. Homeopathy does not believe in treating eczema with creams, ointment or lotions. We have found local treatment temporary and suppressive.

The homeopathic approach in selecting the medicine is technically called ‘The Constitutional Approach’, whereby a wide range of questions are asked to the patient and based on the analysis and evaluation of various symptoms, a remedy is selected for the individual case. Homeopathic treatment is ‘individual specific and not disease specific.

Skin disorders are often the end result of inner, emotional stresses. Very aptly, homeopathy does not believe in treating skin diseases with local ointment or creams. We believe in treating skin diseases by oral medicines only, which go deep into the system and cure from within.
