The attacks are triggered by pollen, smoke, even and are characterized by wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. When a person has an asthma attack, the inflammation in the respiratory system makes breathing difficult.

TYPES AND CAUSES OF ASTHAMA:

Early onset or Atopic Asthma:- In this type attacks of disease begins in childhood and this type of asthma is mainly found in Atopic individuals(Antibodies produced rapidly due to allergens in these people). In these atopic individuals allergens(Dust with bacteria, Feather, Dust from animal’s body, Fungus etc.) enter in patient’s lungs while respiration and cause antigen-antibody reaction in bronchi and produce constriction in bronchi. This causes coughing, phlegm- spitting and difficult respiration

Late onset or Non-Atopic Asthma:- This is found in non –atopic individuals and mainly in later stage of life, that’s why it is known as Late-onset Asthma. As in this type of Asthma external allergens are not present, it is also called as intrinsic Asthma.

Exciting factors in attacks of Asthma:
  • Allergens
  • Exercise
  • Environment
  • Occupation
  • Drugs
  • Emotions

Investigations:
  • Radiological Examination
  • Pulmonary Function Test
  • Arterial Blood Gas Analysis
  • Skin Hypersensitivity Test

Homoeopathic Treatment of Asthma: Ipecac: homeopathy medicine works well if symptoms are spasmodic; the patient feels a lot of weight and anxiety about the chest; there is sudden wheezing, difficulty breathing, and a feeling of suffocation, which is made worse if the patient moves or is warmed; and the cough creates retching and vomiting. Ipecac might be called for when the cough is continuous and the chest seems full of phlegm, yet nothing is coughed up. The extremities are covered with cold sweat.

Arsenicum Alb : is similar to Ipecac, and is especially useful if the disease is chronic, the patient is older and the labored breathing is habitual and dry. It is used when the attacks occur between midnight and 2 a.m. The patient’s dry wheezing may progress to a cough that brings up frothy, whitish fluid. He or she feels exhausted yet experiences a lot of anguish and restlessness, fearing suffocation if he or she lies down. There is a general sweat, and the person can be thirsty, taking frequent, tiny sips. If the patient falls asleep again, he or she is awakened with soreness and burning pain in the chest and heat in the head. Warmth often brings improvement. Arsenicum follows Ipecac well, and is especially useful in those who are anemic.

Kali Bich : might help patients who experience attacks at about 3 or 4 a.m., with a feeling as if there were no air in the chest. The patient feels compelled to sit up to breathe, and bending forward while sitting brings some relief. The patient coughs up stringy yellow mucus.

Natrum mur : treats general symptoms including a worsening of asthma when exposed to mold and dampness; attacks occur at about 4 to 5 a.m.; and the patient sits up and holds the chest with the hands while coughing. Wheezing and breathing difficulties are aggravated by exertion. The patient usually also has loose bowels after each attack.

Antimonium Tartaricum :a remedy used by conventional medicine for asthma, can also be used as a homoeopathic treatment for certain symptoms. The keynote for using this option is the presence of fine rattling or crackling sounds in the chest. The chest also seems full of phlegm that the patient cannot cough up. The patient must sit up at about 3 a.m., has great difficulty breathing, and feels suffocated. Antimonium tartaricum is especially suited to young children and the elderly.

Pulsatilla: is indicated if wheezing starts after a person eats rich food or gets too warm. Tightness in the chest tends to become worse during the evening and at night, and is relieved by fresh, cool air. Coughing with gagging and choking brings up yellow-colored mucus. A person who benefits from this remedy is likely to be emotional and changeable, desiring comfort and attention.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Homeopathy Treatment:

Because rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder, homeopathy works on RA symptoms by optimizing the body’s defense system. Homeopathic medicines may also be helpful when supported by conventional treatment. Among the most common homeopathic preparations for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are Apis (from bee venom), Arnica, Bryonia (wild hops), Ledum (from marsh tea), and Rhus toxicodenron (from poison ivy).

Apis (honeybee) is often associated with acute symptoms, especially swelling and tenderness. Joints feel hot and have stinging pain. Apis reduces the stiffness and pain, mostly around hands and knees. Cool applications bring relief, while warmth can aggravate the symptoms.

Arnica is used when the patient fears being hit by anyone passing. Other indications for using this treatment include arthritic pains in the foot that get worse toward evening and a big toe joint that is red and feels as though it has been sprained.

Bryonia (Bry) is used for inflammation, swelling and soreness of muscle tissue, joints and bursa sacs (containing synovia). The joints also are swollen, red and hot. Discomfort is aggravated by dry, cold weather. The pains are sharp, throbbing or tearing in character, and even the slightest motion or touch creates discomfort. Relief can come if pressure is used to stabilize the area. Cold applications often reduce discomfort.

Ledum (Led) is distinctive for helping when the pain moves upward, especially from the toes, traveling up through the ankles to the knees. It feels worse from motion and from the warmth of a bed. There is a tendency toward the formation of nodes in the small joints. Ledum eases hot swelling of the hip joint and can be used when the ball of the great toe is painful and swollen, and it feels sore when stepping with it. The joints may make cracking sounds and be swollen. Cold applications bring relief to both the pain and swelling.

Rhus toxicodendron (Rhus-t) is used for restlessness and a desire to move about continually because of the relief brought by the movement. One feels worse when rising from a sitting position or when first starting to move. Cold and damp weather cause aggravation, but warmth brings relief. Rhus Bryonia is used when moving causes an aggravation.

HOMEOPATHY FOR INSOMNIA

Insomnia, or difficulty falling or staying asleep, affects most individuals at some time in their lives. As many as 20 percent of people suffer from chronic insomnia, and more than 40 percent of adults report having insomnia on occasion.
Read More
With the recent emergence of numerous sleep aid medications, identifying and treating insomnia has received increased attention. In addition to over-the-counter and prescription medications, there are several other natural approaches to treating insomnia. These include behavioral approaches and the diagnosis and treatment of contributing medical problems. Homeopathy is an alternative therapy that is well suited to treating insomnia.

Causes Insomnia

Various forms of stress are the most common cause of insomnia. Stress can lead to physiologic changes, as well as the development of thought processes and behaviors that can intensify the cycle of poor sleep.

For some people, insomnia can be related to medical problems or symptoms such as urinary frequency or incontinence, chronic pain, sleep apnea, or restless leg syndrome. Many medications have insomnia as a side effect. Among the most frequently affected are women, the elderly, and those with depression, anxiety or grief reactions. Insomnia can be both short-term, or if lasting more than three weeks, it can be considered a chronic condition.

Homeopathy Safe Remedy:

The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and FDA regulations regulate homeopathic preparations for safety. This process is more rigorous than the regulations that are in place for dietary supplements, although not as stringent as that in place for prescription drugs and medications.

HOMEOPATHY TREATMENT REMEDIES FOR INSOMNIA:

Animal studies have shown an improvement in sleep patterns in rats given homeopathic doses of coffea cruda, which is derived from the coffee bean. Homeopathic practitioners report successful human use of coffea cruda in situations where insomnia is caused by stress, anxiety and overactive thought patterns. Taking a dose of 3X to 200X is recommended following excessive coffee drinking. This is the most common homeopathic treatment used for insomnia.

Other homeopathic preparations are used to treat insomnia related to different causes, and this variation in specific recommendations is linked to the holistic approach of homeopathy. Several of the possible homeopathic preparations for insomnia are:
 
  • Aconite is used to treat insomnia related to panic or grief, especially when awakening is caused by nightmares.
  • Arnica, for insomnia related to overexertion and jet lag.
  • Ignatia is used for insomnia related to shock, overstress, or grief, especially when muscle jerking, yawning, and sighing are prevalent.
  • Nux vomica is used for insomnia related to overindulgence, excessive mental stress, or stopping sedatives, especially when the insomnia is marked by early morning waking.

Homeopathy Dosage Directions:

Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used.

HOMEOPATHY FOR MENOPAUSE

Eopause is a normal change in a woman’s body that signals the end of menstruation and the gradual decline in the production of the hormone estrogen. As women approach menopause, their menstrual periods become irregular until they cease altogether.
Read More
Symptoms of menopause can include hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, insomnia, mood swings, cold feet and hands, changes in skin tone, and forgetfulness. Because there is controversy regarding the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to assist women through this time, some women are turning to more natural solutions for dealing with menopausal symptoms. Homeopathy offers a safe and simple solution for addressing these concerns and restoring balance to a woman’s body.

Homeopathy Medicine for Menopause :
  • Bellis perennis is indicated when a woman frequently feels tire d and has a constant backache.
  • Cimicifuga racemosa is for the woman who is restless and talkative, whose emotions swing from happy to troubled, and who feels fearful of disease or death. She frequently experiences headaches and a feeling of doom centered in her stomach.
  • Sanguinaria can help a woman whose right side of the body is more troubled than the left; who itches all over; and who has heavy vaginal discharge and sore breasts.
  • Sepia can help when a woman is worn out and weak and displays indifference toward her family or job. She may also feel cold, despite flushing often, and avoids intercourse because it is painful or difficult for her.
