Homeopathic treatment for Myasthenia Gravis

Introduction to Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease marked by muscle weakness and fatigue that worsens during activity and improves with rest. The symptoms are activated when the immune system produces antibodies that interfere with the transmission of nerve signals to skeletal (voluntary) muscle. As a result, the affected muscles cannot contract normally. The disease is rare, occurring in one or two people per 10,000. It most commonly affects women under 40 and men over 60 but can occur at any age, even among children. Although prognosis has been poor in the past, current therapies can typically allow one to maintain a relatively normal quality of life. Some cases may even go into remission.

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) affects approximately 2 out of every 100,000 people. MG usually appears between the ages of 15 and 50 years and females are more often affected than males. Symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis includes abnormal fatigue or weakness of skeletal muscles. Myasthenia Gravis has rapid fatigability (exhaustibility) and loss of strength upon exertion that improves after rest. Symptoms are worse towards the end of the day or following vigorous exercise is characteristic. Symptoms may also include difficulty in speaking (dysarthria), difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia).

The first symptoms are usually of muscles that control eye movements and cause drooping eyelids (ptosis), and double vision (diplopia). Any muscle of the limb may be affected, most commonly those of the shoulder girdle, so that the patient is unable to undertake work above the level of the shoulder, such as combing the hair, without frequent rests. If untreated, the disorder may affect respiratory muscles (muscles that control breathing), and may result in acute respiratory failure.

Symptoms of MG:

  • Drooping eyelids (ptosis)
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Difficulty in speech, slurred speech
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Nasal sounding speech
  • Weakness of neck muscles
  • Weakness of arms and legs
  • Symptoms are usually intermittent (i.e. come and go)
  • Symptoms may disappear for weeks and may appear again, later
  • Weakness tends to worsen as the day progresses and after prolonged activity

Causes of Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune disorder and usually caused by a malfunction of the immune system. The causative factor is unknown, but the disorder may have a genetic link.

Myasthenia Gravis is a disorder of neuromuscular junction. Acetylcholine at neuromuscular junction is a neurotransmitter that is involved in the transfer of information to muscle tissue from nerves. In myasthenia gravis, there is destruction of acetylcholine receptors, preventing nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. This results in weakness and rapid fatigue in affected muscles.

Myasthenia Gravis may be associated with other autoimmune diseases. Patients who have family members suffering from disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, lupus may have an increased risk for myasthenia gravis.

Approximately 15% of MG patients have a tumor of the thymus (also called as thymoma) and 60–80% have abnormal enlargement (hyperplasia) of the thymus. The thymus is an organ that produces cells involved in immune responses and is located below the larynx and above the heart.

Treatment of Myasthenia Gravis

Homeopathy has effective treatment for Myasthenia Gravis. Properly selected homeopathic remedy gives a long term relief from all symptoms of the patient. To name a few remedies Arsenic Album, Phosphoric Acid, Curare, Picric Acid, Sulphur, Natrum Mur when given homeopathically helps a lot to patients of Myasthenia Gravis. All homeopathic medicines are safe, natural, easy to administer and without any adverse effects. Those who are desperately searching for a cure for MG must consider Homeopathy on priority.

Homeopathic Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata) is a chronic inflammotory demyelinating disease. that affects the central nervous system(CNS).
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells.

Multiple sclerosis attacks neurons, the cells of the brain and spinal cord that carry information, create thought and perception, and allow the brain to control the body. Surrounding and protecting these neurons is a layer of fat, called myelin, which helps neurons carry electrical signals. MS causes gradual destruction of myelin (demyelination) in patches throughout the brain and/or spinal cord. Myelin not only protects nerve fibers, but makes their job possible. When myelin or the nerve fiber is destroyed or damaged, the ability of the nerves to conduct electrical impulses to and from the brain is disrupted, and this produces the various symptoms of MS.

The disease produces a myriad of symptoms. Some of the common symptoms include haziness and dimness of vision, double vision, scanning speech, tremors of hands and legs, weakness of one or more limbs, numbness and tingling pains in the limbs, vertigo and loss of balance, etc.

Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Individuals with multiple sclerosis may experience a wide variety of symptoms. The initial attacks are often transient, mild (or asymptomatic), and self-limited. They often do not prompt a health care visit and sometimes are only identified in retrospect once the diagnosis has been made based on further attacks. The most common initial symptoms reported are: changes in sensation in the arms, legs or face (33%), complete or partial vision loss (optic neuritis) (16%), weakness (13%), double vision (7%), unsteadiness when walking (5%), and balance problems (3%). Fifteen percent of individuals have multiple symptoms when they first seek medical attention. Most people find their initial MS symptoms occur over a period of hours to weeks. For some people the initial MS attack is preceded by infection, trauma or strenuous physical effort.

Other symptoms and physical findings common in MS are flickering eye movements (nystagmus), speech difficulties, tremor, clumsiness of the hands, abnormal muscle spasms, bladder and bowel difficulties, and sexual dysfunction. Cognitive impairments are also common, such as difficulty performing multiple tasks at once, difficulty following detailed instructions, loss of short term memory, emotional instability, and fatigue. Emotional symptoms are common and can be the normal response to having a debilitating disease or the result of damage to the nerves that generate and control emotions. The most common condition, clinical depression, is a product of both causes. Feelings such as anger, anxiety, frustration, and hopelessness are also common, and suicide is a very real threat.

This damage slows down or blocks messages between the brain and body, leading to the symptoms of MS. MS can cause a variety of symptoms including:

  • Changes in sensation (in arms, legs or face). Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles”
  • Visual problems (complete or partial vision loss and double vision)—optic neuritis, nystagmus or diplopia.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Depression,thinking and memory disturbances.
  • Difficulties with coordination and speech.
  • Severe fatigue.
  • Cognitive impairment.
  • Problems with balance (ataxia).
  • Overheating, and pain.
  • Bladder and bowel difficulties.
  • Impaired mobility and disability in more severe cases.

The initial attacks are often transient , mild (asymptomatic) and self limited. The atacks are generally preceeded by infection, trauma or sternous physical activities.

Multiple sclerosis affects neurons, the cells of the brain and spinal cord that carry information, create thought and perception, and allow the brain to control the body. Surrounding and protecting some of these neurons is a fatty layer known as the myelin sheath, which helps neurons carry electrical signals. MS causes gradual destruction of myelin sheath (demyelination) and transection of neuron axons in patches throughout the brain and spinal cord. The name multiple sclerosis refers to the multiple scars (or scleroses) on the myelin sheaths. This scarring causes symptoms which vary widely depending upon which signals are interrupted.

The predominant theory today is that MS results from attacks by an individual’s immune system on the nervous system and it is therefore usually categorized as an autoimmune disease. There is a minority view that MS is not an autoimmune disease, but rather a metabolically dependent neurodegenerative disease. Although much is known about how MS causes damage, its exact cause remains unknown.

Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Although many risk factors have been identified but no definite cause has been found. MS most likely occurs as a result of combination of both environmental and genetic factors.Some accept autoimmune expalnations too.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment

Although Multiple Sclerosis has always puzzled physicians of all walks; interestingly homeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment if not cure in such cases. The various expressions of disease can be managed effectively, gently, and safely with Homeopathy. Early intervention with homeopathy can assist in preventing further progress and hence deterioration caused by disease.

At Life Force, we have limited experience with Multiple Sclerosis. However, we have observed and documented significant results in some of the cases. Homeopathy is recommended for Multiple Sclerosis in all stages.

Though the condition produces life-impairing symptoms, the exact cause of this condition is not clear. Recent research suggests that the disease is due to disturbance of immune system where body’s own defense mechanism starts attacking body’s own organs and tissues. The genetic and heredity factors are at the root of this alteration of immune system.

To sum up, multiple sclerosis is a constitutional disorder and calls for an in-depth constitutional approach towards its management. Homeopathy, too, is based on the constitutional approach. Homeopathy medicines are prescribed after taking into account the presenting complaints along with physical, emotional and genetic make up that individualizes a person. Homeopathy medicines being deep-acting assist in bringing back deviations of immunity to normalcy.

Homeopathic Treatment for Molluscum Contagiosum

The word Molluscum contagiosumcomes from the Latin word named MOLLUSCUS means SOFT characterized by pea sized semi globular pearl like lesion with minute central depression. It is a viral skin infection that causes raised, pearl-like papules or nodules on the skin.

More illustrative Molluscum contagiosum (contagiosa) is a commonly found skin infection, especially among children, which looks like small, pearl shaped, pinkish white eruptions on skin. It is a viral infection. It is also found in adults who are immunodeficient due to some reason. The infection is most common between the age of one to ten years. Molluscum Contagiosum can affect any area on the body but is usually observed on the face, arms and legs.

SYNONYMS

Molluscum Epitheliae, Molluscum Sebaceum, Epithelioma Molluscum, Epithelioma Contagiosum, Acne Varioliforme(Bazin).

Cause

Molluscum contagiosum is caused by DNA poxvirus called the Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV).

Symptoms

It is a benign self-limiting infection which presents in the form of rounded, pearl shaped eruptions. The lesions are flesh-colored, dome-shaped, and pearly in appearance.

They are usually 1–5 millimeters in diameter, with a dimpled center.

They are generally not painful, but they may itch or become irritated.

If it bursts, it can become painful and even may get infected due to some secondary bacterial infection. Picking or scratching the bumps may lead to further infection or scarring and bleeding.

In about 10% of the cases, eczema develops around the lesions. They may occasionally be complicated by secondary bacterial infection.

Treatment

Molluscum contagiosum is a self-limiting condition; which means that it gets cured if untreated. However, in that case, it may take up to six months. Some treatment measures may shorten the duration and reduce the changes of spread. It is contagious until the bumps are gone-which, if untreated, may be up to 6 months or longer. The time from infection to the appearance of lesions ranges from 2 week to 6 months, with an average incubation period of 6 weeks.

The Molluscum virus cannot be routinely cultured in the laboratory.

Homeopathic Treatment for Molluscum Contagiosum

Homeopathy has effective treatment for a range of viral infections which includes Molluscum contagiosum. There are a few commonly indicated anti-viral medicines which are specially suitable for this condition. This problem is largely self-limiting and does not require medicine unless it is severe and extensive. It has to be remembered that the medicines have to be chosen based on the patients individual symptoms; and not that they work for all the patients alike. Some of the medicines are Thuja occidentalis, Dulcamara, Silica, Natrum Muriaticum, Rhus toxicodendron, Causticum, Nitric acid, etc.

Homeopathy Treatment for Lipoma

What is Lipoma?

A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are found most often on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits, but they can occur almost anywhere in the body. One or more lipomas may be present at the same time. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth. Although it has been hypothesized that lipomas may rarely undergo sarcomatous change, this event has never been convincingly documented. It is more probable that lipomas are at the benign end of the spectrum of tumors, which, at the malignant end, include liposarcomas. A Lipoma is a benign (non-cancerous) tumor composed of fatty tissue, usually affecting adults between 40 to 60 years of age. They are generally painless and soft to touch. Their size varies from under 1 cm to sizes greater than 8 cm.

What causes a lipoma?

The cause of lipomas is not completely understood, but the tendency to develop them is inherited. A minor injury may trigger the growth. Being overweight does not cause lipomas.

Unknown. Many people relate the causative factor with eating fatty things and being obese, but nothing is true or scientific. They are sometimes supposed to run in the family.

What are the symptoms of a lipoma?

Lipomas usually:

  • Are small [0.4 in. to 1.2 in.] and felt just under the skin.
  • Usually it will be round or oval in shape with variable size.
  • Are movable and have a soft, rubbery consistency.
  • Do not cause pain.
  • Remain the same size over years or grow very slowly.

Often the most bothersome symptom is the location or increased size that makes the lipoma noticeable by others.

Homeopathic Treatment for Lipoma

homeopathy is considered to be one of the safest and most effective modes of alternative therapies to treat lipomas completely. Though the process can be time taking but treatment is highly beneficial.

homeopathy helps in reduction of the fat mass and also helps in preventing further spread of the growth.

homeopathy is of use in eradicating chronic relapsing conditions. Homoeopathy doesn’t treat the ‘disease in man’ but it treats the ‘man in disease’. Homoeopathy treats the cause of disease and the illness will disappear. homeopathy is strongly recommended.

Homeopathic medicines cannot completely dissolve large lipomas and can only partially soften them and help in marginally reducing their size. However, cases seen at our centres have been treated primarily with the intention of:

Reducing size: Small lipomas (less than1cm) can be significantly reduced in size with homeopathy, especially when treated early. Larger lipomas have also shown to respond to the medicines, however not all cases respond favorably and is not recommended in such cases.

Preventing formation of new lipomas: Individuals prone to multiple lipomas and in cases where lipomas tend to gradually increase in size should surely opt for a course of homeopathy. Most cases treated at HomeoConsult R&D have responded favorably to the treatment prescribed.

Relieving pain and discomfort associated with some forms of lipoma: Occasionally lipomas can cause neurological discomfort and pain which can be relieved homeopathically.

Safety & Efficacy: Homeopathic remedies in general have no known side effects whatsoever. They are recommended for all age groups and can be taken for long durations without the fear of any harmful side effects. You can be 100% sure of their safety and efficacy.

What about Surgery for lipomas?

Surgery should be considered as the last resort and is usually for cosmetic reasons. However, do note that lipomas can reoccur at the site of excision and may continue to develop at new locations. It is therefore advisable to first try homeopathy if the condition is within its scope, as homeopathy is completely non-invasive and free of any side effects.

Homeopathy Treatment for Lichen Planus

Lichen planus is an uncommon skin complaint. It is thought to be due to an abnormal immune reaction provoked by a viral infection or a drug. Inflammatory cells seem to mistake the skin cells as foreign and attack them.

Lichen planus may cause a small number of skin lesions or less often affect a wide area of the skin and mucous membranes. In 85% of cases it clears from skin surfaces within 18 months but it may persist longer especially when affecting the mouth or genitals.

Lichen Planus Signs and Symptoms

Classical lichen planus is characterized by shiny, flat-topped, firm papules (bumps) varying from pin point size (‘guttate’) to larger than a centimetre. They are a purple colour and often are crossed by fine white lines (called ‘Wickham’s striae’). They may be close together or widespread, or grouped in lines (linear lichen planus) or rings (annular lichen planus). Linear lichen planus can be the result of scratching or injuring the skin. Although sometimes there are no symptoms, it is often very itchy.

Lichen planus may affect any area, but is most often seen on the front of the wrists, lower back, and ankles. On the palms and soles the papules are firm and yellow. Very thick scaly patches are particularly itchy and are most likely to arise around the ankles (hypertrophic lichen planu).

New lesions may appear while others are clearing. As the lichen planus papules clear they are often replaced by areas of greyish-brown discolouration, especially in darker skinned people. This is called postinflammatory hyperpigmentation and can persist for months.

Homeopathy treatment for Leukoplakia

Leukoplakia are patches on the tongue, in the mouth, or on the inside of the cheek.

Leukoplakia is a disorder of the mucous membranes. Symptoms consist of white, grey or red patches that form on the tongue, inside of the mouth, or, more rarely, the female vulva. These patches are thick, slightly raised, and often present a hardened surface. Areas of leukoplakia may be sensitive to touch, heat or spicy foods.
The cause of leukoplakia is not clear, but it often develops in response to chronic irritation, such as rough surfaces on dentures, fillings or crowns. One special type, known as hairy leukoplakia, involves a viral infection; it is found only in people who are HIV-positive.
Leukoplakia is associated with an increased risk of cancer in the affected area. Removing an identifiable irritant may resolve the problem. In some cases, surgical treatment is advised.

Causes

Leukoplakia affects the mucus membranes of the mouth. The exact cause is not known. Doctors think it may be due to irritation such as:

  • Rough teeth
  • Rough places on dentures, fillings, and crowns
  • Smoking or other tobacco use (smoker's keratosis), especially pipes
  • Holding chewing tobacco or snuff in the mouth for a long period of time
  • Drinking a lot of alcohol

The disorder is most common in elderly persons.
A type of leukoplakia of the mouth called hairy leukoplakia is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. It is seen mostly in persons with HIV/AIDS. It may be one of the first signs of HIV infection. Hairy leukoplakia can also appear in other people whose immune system is not working well, such as after a bone marrow transplant.

Symptoms

Patches in the mouth usually develop on the tongue (sides of the tongue with hairy leukoplakia)and on the insides of the cheeks.
Leukoplakia patches appear:

  • Usually white or gray
  • Uneven in shape
  • Fuzzy (hairy leukoplakia)
  • Slightly raised with a hard surface
  • Unable to be scraped off
  • Painful when the mouth patches come into contact with acidic or spicy food

Prevention

Stop smoking or using other tobacco products. Do not drink alcohol, or limit how many drinks you have. Have rough teeth treated and dental appliances repaired promptly.

Homeopathy treatment for Leucoderma (Vitiligo)

Leucoderma meaning Leuco - White and Derma - Skin also known as Vitiligo in medical terminology is an auto immune disorder of the skin in which certain parts of the skin begin to lose its color leading to the appearance of white patches. Our skin contains a substance called Melanin, which is a dark pigment that gives color to our skin, and also protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. When the Melanin is destroyed, lost gradually or not produced then the skin looses its color and leaves white spots known as Vitiligo or Leucoderma. These white patches are irregular in appearance with an outline that is darker than the skin, they gradually increase in size and also appear milky white under an ultraviolet light. The most common sites of pigment loss are body folds such as groins or armpits, around body openings like the face or hands.
Leucoderma is not infectious, it does not spread by touching someone or handling personal belongings or food, and it does not cause any harm, pain or suffering. There is anguish only for cosmetic and social reasons, with no medical significance.
There is a condition called Albinism seen in children with a congenital absence of Melanin causing complete white skin of the whole body. It is also very important to remember that every white patch is not Leucoderma, there are other conditions that may look similar to Leucoderma.

Symptoms of vitiligo?

The typical appearance of Vitiligo is a milky white de-pigmented spot or spots. It may vary from a single white spot to multiple spots. The shape too is a variable. In some cases generalized de-pigmentation observed all over the body. It has a tendency to start as a single spot and gradually grow in size and number. It may present with a single or several spots on limbs or abdomen or back and then spreading to other parts of the body. Some cases showing affection of the muco-cutaneous junctions such as finger-tips, corners of the mouth, private parts, around eyes. The spread of the disorder is usually slow and progressive. Symmetrical appearance on both the sides of the body (say, on the legs, hands, etc.) is common. In rare cases one finds vitiligo spreading all over the body.

Causes of Leucoderma

Exact cause of Leucoderma is not known but excessive mental stress and general low immunity levels are the main precipitating factors of Leucoderma. Other conditions that can indirectly affect the skin’s Melanin pigment causing Leucoderma are given below:

  • Acute or chronic gastric disorder.
  • Impaired hepatic function such as jaundice.
  • Worms or other parasites in the alimentary canal.
  • Typhoid.
  • A defective sweating mechanism.
  • Dietary deficiency of proteins, calcium and cupro minerals.
  • A defect in the enzyme Tyrosinase.
  • Burn injuries.
  • Chronic Dysentery.
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Pernicious anemia.
  • Diabetes mellitus.
  • Addison's disease.
  • Prolonged use of broad spectrum antibiotics.
  • Heredity is also a known causative factor.

Homeopathic Approach to Leucoderma

Homoeopathic medicines have shown very encouraging results in most cases of leucoderma. Since it offers a comprehensive treatment as it goes to the root of the problem by helping build up immunity and eventually restores the pigmented patches back to the normal skin color. Homoeopathy considers leucoderma as a local expression of a system disturbance. Leucoderma is a condition which requires an in-depth study of the individual case and only constitutional homeopathic treatment can help. The duration and success of treatment depends on extend of the patches and the duration of the illness. Big patches require more days whereas small spots yield faster. Treating leucoderma is a long process and may require one year or even more to cure it completely. Constitutional homeopathic medicines stimulate the melanocyte function to be able to produce body’s own normal Melanin pigment. After starting the treatment the skin starts becoming pink, turns brown thereafter and starts repigmenting slowly. As homeopathy treats it from within, when the constitutional treatment is completed satisfactorily, it is unlikely that the patches reappear again as compared to treatment with conventional medicines. Homoeopathic drugs are FDA approved, cost effective and easy to use with no side effects.

Self Care Measures

  • Expose the affected areas of the body to the early morning sun for 20-30 minutes daily.
  • Use a mild soap while bathing.
  • Avoid using any cosmetic applications on skin.
  • Make sure that your diet contains enough iron, meat, liver, cereals, beans, lentils and green leafy vegetables which are some of the best sources of iron.
  • Avoid consuming sour foods, citrus fruits, tamarind, fish, lobsters, red meat, crabs and prawns.
  • Use of synthetic clothes should be restricted.
  • Avoid steroids.
  • Avoid stress and learn to relax.
  • Keep a positive attitude.

Homeopathy Treatment for Kidney Stones

Kidney stones or Renal calculi, are solid pieces of material that forms in the kidney out of substances in the urine. They are composed mostly of calcium oxalate. A stone may stay in the kidney or break loose and travel down the urinary tract. It is a painful condition.

Different types of kidney stones occur in different parts of the world, and dietary factors probably play a part in determining the varying patterns. There are four major types of kidney stones. The most common type of stone contains calcium. A struvite stone may form after an infection in the urinary system. These stones contain the mineral magnesium and the waste product ammonia. A uric acid stone may form when there is too much acid in the urine. If you tend to form uric acid stones, you may need to cut back on the amount of meat you eat. Cystine stones are rare. Cystine is one of the building blocks that make up muscles, nerves, and other parts of the body. Cystine can build up in the urine to form a stone. The disease that causes cystine stones runs in families.

Approximately 10% of the world’s population suffers from kidney stones sometime in their life and more than 80% of those affected experience a reoccurrence.

A kidney stone or renal calculi is a hard material formed from salts and minerals within the kidney and the urinary tract. Stones vary in sizes and can be as small as a grain of salt to as large as a marble.

Signs of Kidney Stones

The most common complaint arising from kidney stone (Renal Calculus; Plural - Calculi) is intermittent dull pain in the loin or back, increased by movement. Sometimes this pain is very severe. Following may be the other complaints:

  • Pain: A sudden, sharp, excruciating pain usually in the lower back, abdomen and/or groin
  • Extreme pain in back or side
  • Blood in urine
  • Fever and chill may be associated with urinary tract infection
  • Pain may be associated with nausea and vomiting
  • A burning feeling when you urinate
  • Hematuria or blood in urine due to injury to the urinary tract lining
  • Immobalisation
  • Less urinary citrate
  • Improper or inadequate urinary drainage
  • Any injury to renal epithelium

Types of Stones

  • Calcium oxalate stones
  • Phosphate stones
  • Uric acid stones
  • Cystine stones
  • Xanthine and indigo stones

Causes of Kidney Stones

Infection or obstruction may play a part in kidney stone formation. Sometimes they occur when the level of blood calcium is abnormally high. Occasionally, stones may develop when the blood level of uric acid is too high, usually from over consumption of meat. Excessive dietary intake of calcium and oxalate and low fluid intake have also been associated with formation of stones. In most cases, however the cause is not known. It has been found that certain persons are having a tendency of forming recurrent urinary stones. Even after treating successfully once, they tend to form stones again and again.

Homeopathic Treatment of Kidney Stones

  • Homeopathic medicines prescribed at our centres are broadly classified into two types:
  • The first known as ‘Specific remedies’ which help in immediate control of pain, blood in urine and those which propagate passing or breaking down stones.
    The second, known as ‘Constitutional remedy’, which helps to rectify metabolic disorders and reduce your innate tendency to form stones.

  • Most cases are recommended a treatment course of 6 months
  • Individuals susceptible to high recurrences may be recommended a longer duration of treatment
  • Conventional treatment measures recommended by your Nephrologist or Family Physician may be continued along with Homeopathic medicines
  • Small to medium size stones (4-10 mm) have a greater chance of completely passing out on treatment
  • Larger stones may or may not pass or break depending on the size, location and nature of stone
  • You can prevent and/or reduce your chances of stone reoccurrence with the lifestyle changes and homeopathic treatment recommended

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat kidney stone but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for kidney stone treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

Kidney Stones, acute as well as chronic, can be effectively treated with Homeopathic Medicines. Homeopathic treatment can avoid surgery in many cases. It is highly recommended in cases where tendency of having recurrent stones is there. Patient’s case history is studied in detail and a well selected homeopathic medicine is given which removes this tendency from patient’s body so that he does not have any more stones again. It has especially proved very helpful in cases of stones where surgery or other procedure is not advisable due to various reasons. All homeopathic medicines are safe, natural, easy to administer and without any adverse effects. If you have any specific question about your condition, please click here to ask.

Prevention of any more Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones can be prevented by drinking more water. Try to drink 12 full glasses of water a day. Drinking lots of water helps to flush away the substances that form stones in the kidneys. If you have a uric acid stone, eat less meat, because meat breaks down to make uric acid.

Homeopathic treatment for Juvenile Idiopathic arthritis (JIA)

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, also known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis in children under the age of 16. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis causes persistent joint pain, swelling and stiffness. Some children may experience symptoms for only a few months, while others have symptoms for the rest of their lives.

Some types of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can cause serious complications, such as growth problems and eye inflammation. Treatment of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis focuses on controlling pain, improving function and preventing joint damage.

What Causes JIA?

It's not known exactly what causes JIA in kids. Research indicates that it is an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune diseases, white blood cells can't tell the difference between the body's own healthy cells and germs like bacteria and viruses. The immune system, which is supposed to protect the body from these harmful invaders, instead releases chemicals that can damage healthy tissues and cause inflammation and pain.

To effectively manage and minimize the effects of arthritis, an early and accurate diagnosis is essential. By understanding the symptoms and characteristics of each type of JIA, you can help your child maintain an active, productive lifestyle.

Types of JIA

JIA usually appears in kids between 6 months and 16 years old. The first signs often are joint pain or swelling and reddened or warm joints. Many rheumatologists (doctors specializing in joint disorders) find that the greater the number of joints affected, the more severe the disease and the less likely that the symptoms will eventually go into total remission.

There are seven major types of JIA:

  1. Systemic JIA. Affects the whole body. Symptoms include high fevers that often increase in the evenings and then may suddenly drop to normal. During the onset of fever, the child may feel very ill, appear pale, or develop a rash. The rash may suddenly disappear and then quickly appear again. The spleen and lymph nodes might become enlarged. Eventually many of the body's joints are affected by swelling, pain, and stiffness.
  2. Oligoarthritis. Affects four or fewer joints. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, or swelling in the joints. The knee and wrist joints are the most commonly affected. The two types of oligoarthritis, persistent and extended, are determined by how many joints are ultimately involved.
    • Also, an inflammation of the iris (the colored area of the eye) may occur with or without active joint symptoms. This inflammation, called iridocyclitis, iritis, or uveitis, can be detected early by an ophthalmologist.
  3. Polyarticular arthritis, rheumatoid factor negative. Affects more girls than boys. Symptoms include swelling or pain in five or more joints. The small joints of the hands are affected as well as the weight-bearing joints like the knees, hips, ankles, feet, and neck.
    • A low-grade fever also might develop, as well as bumps or nodules in areas of the body subjected to pressure from sitting or leaning.
  4. Polyarticular arthritis, rheumatoid factor positive. Affects about 15% of kids with polyarticular arthritis or about 3% of all children with JIA. This type of JIA behaves the most like adult rheumatoid arthritis, and kids are at a higher risk of joint damage with erosions than in the other forms of JIA.
  5. Psoriatic arthritis. Kids with this also have the psoriasis rash themselves or a close relative with psoriasis. Their fingernails and/or toenails might be affected by the condition.
  6. Enthesitis-related arthritis. Most commonly affects the lower extremities and the spine. Kids also might have inflammation where tendons join bones (e.g., where the Achilles tendon attaches to the back of the heel).
    • Enthesitis-related arthritis includes a special group call juvenile ankylosing spondylitis (where joints of the low back are inflamed) and arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis).
  7. Undifferentiated arthritis. Arthritis that doesn't fit into any of the above categories or fits into more than one of the categories.

The first signs of arthritis, which can be subtle or obvious, include limping or a sore wrist, finger, or knee. Joints may suddenly swell and remain enlarged. Stiffness in the neck, hips, or other joints also can occur.

Rashes may suddenly appear and disappear, developing in one area and then another. High fevers that tend to spike in the evenings and suddenly disappear are characteristic of systemic JIA.

Homeopathic Treatment for Crohn’s Disease

Crohn's disease, also known as granulomatous enteritis and colitis, is an inflammatory disease of the intestines that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, causing a wide variety of symptoms.

It primarily causes abdominal pain, diarrhea (which may be bloody if inflammation is at its worst), vomiting, or weight loss, but may also cause complications outside of the gastrointestinal tract such as rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.

Crohn's disease is thought to be an autoimmune disease, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract, causing inflammation; it is classified as a type of inflammatory bowel disease. There has been evidence of a genetic link to Crohn's disease, putting individuals with siblings afflicted with the disease at higher risk It is understood to have a large environmental component as evidenced by the higher number of cases in western industrialized nations. Males and females are equally affected. Smokers are three times more likely to develop Crohn's disease.

Crohn's disease is one of the inflammatory bowel diseases (the others include ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome) that causes ongoing inflammation of the intestinal tract. It primarily causes ulcerations of the small and large intestines, but can affect the digestive system anywhere from the mouth to the anus but it most commonly affects the lower part of the small intestine, called the ileum. The swelling extends deep into the lining of the affected organ. The swelling can cause pain and can make the intestines empty frequently, resulting in diarrhea.

Crohn's develops mostly between the ages of 20 - 40, although children and older adults may also develop the condition. There is no cure for Crohn's disease. Medication and diets can help control the condition and sometimes bring about long-term remission. Some people with Crohn's disease will require surgery to remove part of the digestive tract at some point in their lives. However, surgery does not cure the disease.

What are the Causes Crohns Disease?

The cause of Crohn's disease is unknown. Some scientists suspect that infection by certain bacteria, such as strains of mycobacterium, may be the cause of Crohn's disease. To date, however, there has been no convincing evidence that the disease is caused by infection. Crohn's disease is not contagious. Although diet may affect the symptoms in patients with Crohn's disease, it is unlikely that diet is responsible for the disease.

Risk Factors:

  • Being of Jewish heritage (three to six times more likely than the general population)
  • Being of European (particularly Scandinavian) ancestry
  • Family history of inflammatory bowel disease
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Living in an industrialized country (particularly an urban area)
  • Eating a diet high in sugar and saturated fat and low in fruit and vegetables.

Crohn's disease can also be associated with other medical conditions, including arthritis, osteoporosis, eye infections, blood clots, liver disease, and skin rashes. Recently a gene called NOD2 has been identified as being associated with Crohn's disease. This gene is important in determining how the body responds to some bacterial products. Individuals with mutations in this gene are more susceptible to developing Crohn's disease.

What Are the Sign's And Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease?

The most common symptoms of Crohn’s disease are abdominal pain, often in the lower right area, and diarrhea. Children with Crohn’s disease may suffer delayed development and stunted growth. The range and severity of symptoms varies.

  • Diarrhea (with or without blood)
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Poor appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Floating stools (caused by poor digestion of fat)
  • Rectal bleeding, which may lead to anemia.
  • Arthritis
  • Skin problems

Crohn's disease can also be associated with other medical conditions, including arthritis, osteoporosis, eye infections, blood clots, liver disease, and skin rashes.

How is Crohn's Disease Different from Ulcerative Colitis?

While ulcerative colitis causes inflammation only in the colon (colitis) and/or the rectum (proctitis), Crohn's disease may cause inflammation in the colon, rectum, small intestine (jejunum and ileum), and, occasionally, even the stomach, mouth, and esophagus. The patterns of inflammation in Crohn's disease are different from ulcerative colitis. Except in the most severe cases, the inflammation of ulcerative colitis tends to involve the superficial layers of the inner lining of the bowel. The inflammation also tends to be diffuse and uniform. (All of the lining in the affected segment of the intestine is inflamed.) Unlike ulcerative colitis, the inflammation of Crohn's disease is concentrated in some areas more than others and involves layers of the bowel that are deeper than the superficial inner layers. Therefore, the affected segment(s) of bowel in Crohn's disease often is studded with deeper ulcers with normal lining between these ulcers.

What are the Complications of Crohn's Disease?

Complications of Crohn's disease may be related or unrelated to the inflammation within the intestine (such as intestinal or extra-intestinal). Intestinal Complications may include

  • Obstruction and perforation of the small intestine
  • Abscesses (collections of pus)
  • Fistulae
  • Intestinal bleeding.
  • Massive distention or dilatation of the colon
  • Increase risk of cancer of the small intestine and colon in patients with long-standing Crohn's disease. Extra-intestinal complications involve

Skin Complications:
Painful red raised spots on the legs (erythema nodosum) and an ulcerating skin condition generally found around the ankles called pyoderma gangrenosum.

Eye:
Painful eye conditions (uveitis, episcleritis) can cause visual difficulties.

Arthritis:
Pain, swelling, and stiffness of the joints of the extremities. Inflammation of the low back (sacroiliac joint arthritis) and of the spine (ankylosing spondylitis) can cause pain and stiffness of the spine.

Liver:
Inflammation of the liver (hepatitis) or bile ducts (primary sclerosing cholangitis) causing narrowing and obstruction of the ducts draining the liver and can lead to yellow skin (jaundice).

What is the Role of Homoeopathy in Crohn’s Diseases?

As described in the article above Crohn’s Diseases has multifactor ail causes. Homoeopathy follows an individualistic approach towards patients suffering from Crohn’s diseases we believe that every individual is different and thus a full in-depth case study is the first step. Then referring to the risk factors the individual was subjected too, a particular line of treatment is adopted. The usual conventional treatment provides only palliation. On the other hand our deep acting constitutional medicine cure the disease in depth rendering the patient free from the disease A broad criterion of how the homoeopathic medicines act in cases of Crohn’s diseases is mentioned below. The response to treatment can differ from one individual to another patients are advised to consult so that the mode of treatment can be discussed pertaining to their particular case.

Homoeopathic Medicines Act By:

  • Relieving Symptoms
  • Preventing Attacks
  • Curing the underlying diseases process

Relieves Symptoms like:

  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Poor appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Floating stools (caused by poor digestion of fat)
  • Rectal bleeding, which may lead to anemia.
  • Arthritis
  • Skin problems

Preventing Attacks:

Crohn’s disease usually manifests with exuberating episodes, homoeopathic medicines help by increasing the time between these episodes.

Controlling and reversing the underlying Disease process:

Homoeopathic medicines have proven their efficacy in all sought of Inflammatory Bowel conditions and help by reducing the inflammation & ulcerations and helping in restoring intestinal functions back to normal. It also helps by enhancing ones immune response. If homoeopathic treatment is sought early it helps in preventing the progress of disease and preventing any complications (Skin, Liver, and Arthritis) from occurring, which are usually associated with the disease. It helps by reducing the ulcerations at first and over a period of time by healing them.

  • We at DRSS provide our patients with diet charts, exercise schedules and guide them how to modify their lifestyle so that better results can be achieved.
  • Our medicines can be started with conventional treatment depending upon the disease state and case.
  • Homoeopathic medications if taken under proper guidance and care from a qualified homoeopathic practitioner have no side effects

Homeopathic Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic problem with varying symptoms, including abdominal pain and bloating, alternating diarrhea and constipation, flatulence, back pain, and fatigue. The cause is not clearly understood; however, since no significant tissue changes in the bowel are evident on medical examination, some speculation indicates that allergies and emotional stress may contribute to this condition. Remedies listed here may help bring some relief in moderate situations. A constitutional remedy prescribed by an experienced professional is often the best approach to help the person’s system regain its balance.

Symptoms of irritable bowel disease

  • Gases / Bloating
  • Cramps / Colic
  • Nausea / Vomiting
  • Constipation or Diarrhea (or alternating)
  • Mucous stools
  • Sensation of incomplete evacuation
  • Weight loss

Homeopathy in Practice

IBS is nearly always associated with psychological problems. Stress, fear, anger, grief, and obsession can cause hyperactivity of the nerve impulses controlling muscle action. When any muscle is irritated or overworked, it will go into spasm.

In homeopathy, irritable bowel syndrome is also viewed as the result of gut dysbiosis.

Gut dysbiosis is generated when there are too many unfriendly bacteria (yeast) and only few good bacteria in the gut. If the over growth of yeast is not controlled, it may become systemic. This means that the yeast may spread throughout the whole gastrointestinal tract.

Good intestinal bacteria is made up of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum. Probiotics in powder form that contain ten billion units of these bacteria help restore gut health.

Pancreatic digestive-enzymes are essential to help break down fats, and relieve symptoms of IBS.

Homeopathic Treatment for Sweating

Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is the clinical term to describe constant excessive sweating. Many individuals around the world suffer from this bothersome condition. People with profuse Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) often live in constant anxiety about their excessive perspiration and in severe cases it can cause difficulty in the work place, in personal relationships and it often results in negative feelings and lack of confidence.

While we are all familiar with that clammy, sweaty feeling on a hot summer’s day, primary Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) causes the individual to sweat excessively and often at inappropriate times. The most common areas affected by this condition include under the arms, on the soles of feet, the palms of hands, the upper lips and between the legs in the groin area.

In some extreme cases, Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) occurs in a localized area and an individual may suffer from heavy head sweating or hand sweating, while others experience more generalized sweating in all areas. The good news is that excessive perspiration no longer has to be begrudgingly endured as there are now a number of treatment options available to help stop it.

Sweating (Hyperhydrosis) is a medical condition characterized with excessive and unpredictable sweating even in cool weather and resting state. The sweating is quite abnormal and in excess of what the body requires in regulating the body temperature.

Causes and Symptoms of Sweating (Hyperhydrosis):

Sweating is body’s natural response to warm weather, exercising, or is associated with severe emotional reactions like getting nervous, angry, embarrassed or scared. Conversely Sweating (Hyperhydrosis) does not depend on these common triggers but more or less is due to over active sweat glands.

When the sweating is found focused in some particular areas of the body like palms, arm pits and feet, it is termed as Primary or focal Sweating (Hyperhydrosis). Though found to distress about 2%-3% of the population the cause still evades us. The doctors in general credit it to some genes running in the family.

In case the excessive sweating is due to some other medical condition it is known as Secondary Sweating (Hyperhydrosis). In such condition the entire body suffers from undue sweating. Various conditions which could lead to Secondary Sweating (Hyperhydrosis) are:

  • Anxiety conditions
  • Acromegaly
  • Cancer
  • Carcinoid syndrome
  • Certain substances of abuse and medication
  • Heart diseases
  • Lung diseases
  • Menopause
  • Tuberculosis
  • Parkinson’s disease etc.

With an extensive range of causal factors both types of Sweating (Hyperhydrosis) display only one main symptom i.e. excessive sweating or wetness.

Treatment:

Though it does not extend any life endangering threats, but certainly calls for treatment, as it could lead to great emotional and physical discomfort. Homeopathy concentrating on the root cause, offers excellent remedies for Sweating (Hyperhydrosis).

Homeopathy Treatment for Hordeolum (Styes)

Hordeolum also known as Styes (stys) are lumps in or along the edge of an eyelid. They may be painful or annoying, but they are rarely serious. Hordeolum are more common in children than adults. Some children tend to get regular outbreaks.

A Hordeolum develops when an oil gland at the edge of an eyelid becomes infected. The lump can grow on the inside or outside of the lid. The Hordeolum is very often caused by bacteria, most commonly Staphylococcus bacteria.

What are the symptoms?

  • Stye symptoms and signs include:
  • A lump on the eyelid
  • A swelling of the eyelid
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Burning in the eye
  • Eyelid crusts

When to seek medical care?

Most styes go away on their own in five to seven days. Do not try to squeeze a stye or any other type of eyelid bump. Let it drain on its own. Complications of a stye are rare.

You should call your doctor if:

  • the child`s eye is swollen shut
  • he has a severe pain
  • he has a high-grade fever
  • swelling lasts for more than 20 days
  • pus continues to drain from the eye
  • his eye lid bleeds
  • he has problems with his vision

Homeopathic treatment for stys

Homeopathic medicines for stye are safe and effective with no side effects. They are FDA regulated and can be purchased over the counter. Children love homeopathic pellets because they are sweet and easy to take.

Homeopathy Treatment for Hives (Urticaria)

Urticaria also called Nettle-Rash or Hives or wheals in a common language, simply means itching with rash. Medically, urticaria may be defined as skin eruption, which is allergic (or non-allergic) in origin and is characterized by profound itching, red circular or irregularly shaped eruptions on any part of the body.

Urticaria is an allergic or non-allergic immunological disease, shown on the skin. Characteristically the skin eruptions are erythematous, raised above the skin level, with intense itching and usually worsened by itching an with slight local warmth. It can be acute or chronic; largely having a tendency to recur frequently for many months or years.

Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They range in size from a few millimeters to several inches in diameter. Hives can be round, or they can form rings or large patches. Wheals (welts), red lesions with a red "flare" at the borders, are another manifestation of hives. Hives can occur anywhere on the body, such as the trunk, arms, and legs.

Hives are frequently caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many non-allergic causes. For example, most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute urticaria) are the result of an allergic trigger. Chronic urticaria (hives lasting longer than six weeks) are rarely due to an allergy. The majority of patients with chronic hives have an unknown cause. Perhaps as many as 30-40% of patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria will, in fact, have an autoimmune cause. Acute viral infection is another common cause of acute urticaria (viral exanthem). Less common causes of hives include friction, pressure, temperature extremes, exercise, and sunlight. It may be true that hives are more common in those with fair skin.

Types of Hives (Urticaria)

Acute urticaria

It usually show up a few minutes after contact with the allergen and can last a few hours to several weeks. Food allergic reactions often fit in this category. The most common food allergies in adults are shellfish and nuts. The most common food allergies in children are shellfish, nuts, peanuts, eggs, wheat, and soy. It is uncommon for patients to have more than 2 true food allergies. A less common cause is exposure to certain bacteria, such as streptococcus or possibly Helicobacter pylori. In these cases, the hives may be exacerbated by other factors.

Chronic urticaria

It refers to hives that persists for 6 weeks or more. There are no visual differences between acute and chronic urticaria. Some of the more severe chronic cases have lasted more than 20 years. A survey indicated that chronic urticaria lasted a year or more in more than 50% of sufferers and 20 years or more in 20% of them. Of course this does mean that in almost half the people it clears up within a year and in 80% it clears up within 20 years or less.

What causes hives?

Hives are often triggered by an allergic reaction in which the body releases histamine and other chemicals in the bloodstream that cause itching and swelling. Most common triggers include:

  • Foods: fruits (citrus fruits), milk, eggs, nuts, fish and shellfish.
  • Medicines
  • Insect bites
  • Animal dander (especially cats)
  • Pollen
  • Allergy shots

Hives may also develop as a result of:

  • Stress
  • Infections
  • Exercise
  • Exposure to sun, cold, heat or water
  • Some illnesses – lupus, thyroid disease
  • Excessive perspiration
  • Scratching the skin

Signs and symptoms of Hives (Urticaria):

Signs and symptoms of hives include:

  • Raised red, pink or white swellings on the skin of various sizes
  • Itching
  • Burning and stinging may also be present
  • Sudden skin eruptions with swelling, burning, intense itching and stinging
  • Rubbing and scratching usually aggravate the condition.
  • Shape and size is variable-irregular ,round or vertical line, multiple or single
  • Restlessness and irritability due to intense itching.
  • The eruption may fade in a few minutes or an hour in one place, but may appear in another.
  • Ongioedema: In urticaria a deeper swelling is accompanied in the skin called angioedema. The swelling may be seen on the hand, feet, lips and eyes.

Homeopathic treatment for Hives (Urticaria):

Urticaria is a very common and upsetting disease because of recurrence. Homeopathy is very effective in treating all types of urticaria.

Normally our body is gifted with natural healing mechanism called as immune power. In urticaria immune power gets disturbed and can show exaggerated reaction to allergen .it activates the antibodies and produce histamines to cause rash and itching.

Homeopathic constitutional dose strengthens the weakened immunity of the patient so that the body gains the capacity to overthrow the disease on its own. It controls the exaggerated reaction of immune power to allergens .Thus ultimately decreases the activation of mast cells and the production of histamines. Thus gradually all symptoms of urticaria subside. Homeopathic medicines can also reduce the sensitivity of body to particular allergens by improving immunity. Thus it helps person to live very comfortably without any urticarial rash. Homeopathic medicines can reduce the heredity effect which is known to cause or aggravate urticaria.

Homeopathic medicines have a chief action on the mind. Stress is a main cause of urticaria. The stressful environment in ones life cannot be reduced; however its effects on the body and mind can be dealt with by homeopathy.

Many underline diseases like SLE, leukemia, thyroid problem scan be resolve with homeopathy which produces the urticaria.

Homeopathic Treatment for Tinea Versicolor

Tinea (pityriasis) versicolor is a chronic fungal (yeast) infection of the skin mainly which is observed in children as well as in adults. This condition is commonly observed in people especially in tropical and subtropical countries such as India. It has a tendency to stay on for many months or even years, as fungus tends to be resistant to many treatments.

Have you observed that certain areas of your skin fail to tan in summer and look like discolored hypo or hyper-pigmented patches, in that case, you probably are afflicted by a fungal infection named Tinea Versicolor or Pityriasis Versicolor? Tinea Versicolor is a skin condition initiated by an overgrowth of Malassezia Furfur, also known as Pityrosporum orbiculare, a yeast that makes its home on the skin’s surface. This yeast transforms to a pathogenic form, roves under the skin, producing Azelaic acid, which turns off melanin producing cells in the skin. The yeast colonizes in the pores of the skin and thrives in oily areas such as the face, neck, shoulders, chest, back and folds of skin such as arms, skin under the breasts or groins. This overgrowth outcome is a fungal infection that causes patchy skin color, scaling and itching. The affected skin changes color and becomes either lighter or darker than the surrounding skin.

Causes of Tinea Versicolor:

It is caused by the fungus. The year or fungus by the name Pityrosporum ovale normally found on skin mainly on upper back and chest region.
Triggering and maintaining factor:

  • Hot climate.
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Oily skin.
  • Undue sweating.
  • Malnourishment.
  • Humid climate.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Low immune system.
  • Pregnant women and diabetics are easily prone too get this infection.
  • Birth control pills, antibiotic, steroid or immunosuppressant therapy.

Symptoms of Tinea Versicolor:

  • Small, scaly, white, pink, brown or reddish brown spots on various parts of the body.
  • Spots may be darker or lighter than the surrounding skin.
  • These patches grow slowly and are more discernible after sun exposure.
  • It may cause loss of skin color (hypopigmentation) or increase in skin color (hyperpigmentation) macules with sharp edges and fine scales.
  • Itching.
  • Increased sweating.

Homeopathic approach to Tinea Versicolor:

Homoeopathy has shown incredibly optimistic results in cases of Tinea Versicolor. Homeopathy considers Tinea Versicolor or any skin disorders as a local expression of a system disturbance, a manifestation of an internal imbalance that needs to be treated from within. Homeopathic remedies work on strengthening your immune system which further assists in preventing infections, maintaining a clear skin, in staying robust and living a vivacious life. Homeopathy offers a comprehensive constitutional treatment, which treats the body internally and externally by getting to the root of the problem and in due course restores the hypo or hyper-pigmented patches back to the normal skin color. Homeopathic constitutional approach takes care of hyper or hypo pigmentation along with treating the person as a whole and improving the general health of the patient. Homeopathic remedies treat the fungal infection and turn on the melanin producing cells in the skin. This further improves the texture of the skin, trims down occurrence of new patches, and slowly reverts to its normal condition without leaving any pigmentation. As Homeopathy treats Tinea Versicolor from within, when the constitutional treatment is completed satisfactorily, it is unlikely that the patches reappear again as compared to treatment with conventional medicines. Homeopathic remedies are natural, gentle, harmless, easy to take, are regulated by the FDA and prepared according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States. Some Homeopathic remedies that are commonly used to treat Tinea Versicolor are given below. These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines in Tinea Versicolor. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.
