every person is suffering from different types of mental and physical
disorders due to changed life style. Physical disorders can be diagnosed
easily and patient takes treatment accordingly as soon as possible,
but there are no objective markers in case of mental diseases; so
they cannot be diagnosed easily and if there are some symptoms,
patient ignores them because he hesitates to consult a doctor about
some psychiatric trouble and cause is feeling of inferiority complex.
Nowadays most of the diseases are due to mental disturbances and
my personal view is that it all due to motivating towards materialism
in place of spiritualism.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF MENTAL DISEASES:
Mental diseases are classified as different types in medical science
and there is one type known as MOOD DISORDERS. In this class there
are 2 types – (1) Depression (2) Mania.
There are so many patients of depression in the world
and number is increasing rapidly, around 13 – 20% people of
whole population are suffering from depression. Depression is mainly
found in women, socially and economically poor people, divorcees
etc. We will describe what is depression? , How it occurs? , What
are symptoms and what is the treatment of depression?
is a distressing condition, which leads to the feeling of inferiority
complex, sadness, negative thinking, weakness etc. It affects the
potential of a person. His behavior becomes negative for everything
e.g. ignoring his cleanliness or dresses and sitting idle etc.
we look at patient’s face, we will notice his hanged lips
or corners of mouth, wrinkles
on his face and few streaks on his forehead,wide opened eyes without
shoulders etc. His body movements become lessened or totally absent.
CAUSES OF MENTAL DISEASES:
(1) Genetic causes - Incidence of depression is 20% higher in children
of those parents who are suffering from sever depression.
(2) Physical causes - Sever and chronic diseases, incurable diseases
such as cancer or heart problem may be the cause of depression.
(3) Family atmosphere -Separation of parents, separation from parents
or ignorance of child due to sever disease of parents.
(4) Predisposing or sudden causes – Failure in career, loss
of money, disappointed love, adverse conditions etc.
(1) Dejection, sadness, irritation and negative thoughts.
(2) Feeling of worthlessness.
(3) Loss of weight or gain of weight (minimum 5% in a month).
(4) Insomnia or prolonged sleep.
(5) Loss of or absence of body movements.
(7) Absence of sexual desire.
(8) Absence of concentration.
(9) Inferiority complex.
(10) Suicidal thoughts.
Prognosis of depression:
11 – 17% of patients who are suffering from sever depression
might do suicide.
(1) Antidepressant drugs.
(2) Tricyclic antidepressant drugs.
(3) Monoamine Inhibitors Oxidase (MAIOS).
(4) SSRIS, Lithium.
(5) Elactroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Homoeopathy is the most suitable, rapid and cheapest treatment for
mental diseases. Homoeopathy has the power of cure them permanently
in shortest duration. In Homoeopathy there is no need to take so
many medicines for many years like in other ways (pathies) of treatment
but patient becomes cured in few months of treatment. This is my
personal experience. Though this depends on severity and individuality
of patient. There are some misconceptions about Homoeopathy and
I want to clear them, they are- Homoeopathic medicine acts very
slow and there are so many precautions to be taken during Homoeopathic
treatment, this is not true. My personal experience states that
Homoeopathic medicines are more effective, act rapidly and there
is no need to take so many precautions during treatment. Homoeopathy
favors it that the cause of every disease is actually the mental
disturbances. Although physical diseases seems as if they are superficial
but actual cause is some mental disorder. Now so- called modern
medical science (allopathy) is also agreed with it. So a Homoeopath
can be the best psychiatrist and Homoeopathy can be the best pathy
for mental disorders. There is one important point in Homoeopathy,
which must be noted by all readers that if one Homoeopath could
not cure a patient, it does not mean that this is the lacuna of
Homoeopathy and there is no cure for that patient in homoeopathy,
but other Homoeopath can cure same patient. So I want to say that
“A Homoeopath can fail but Homoeopathy never fails”.
One special feature of Homoeopathy is that, in this pathy patient
is treated not the disease. So here patient is more important than
disease, that’s why many incurable diseases can be treated
easily by Homoeopathy. So in Homoeopathy treatment is not given
to disease, but to the patient and for this Homoeopathic doctor
must have full information and adequate knowledge about patient.
That’s the reason why Homoeopathy is more effective in mental
We have discussed all about depression, now for Homoeopathic treatment
of depression following medicines can be helpful (Consult your doctor
Arsenic Album. ; Aurum Met. ; Calcarea- carb. ; Causticum. ; Cimicifuga
Racemosa ; Ferrum Met. ; Graphites. ; Hyoscyamus. ; Ignatia. ; Kali
Phos. ; Lilium Tig. ; Natrum Mure. ; Opium. ; Platina. ; Pulsatilla.
; Sepia. ; Thuja. ; Zincum Met. Etc. There are many other medicines
but their use depends on the cause of depression. So patient is
more important, quantity and power of medicine also depend on the
nature of patient. So diseased person must consult to a good doctor
at right time. By regular intake of proper Homoeopathic medicine
depression can be rapidly cured.
Other considerable points:Besides above facts patient must be moved
towards art, music, dance, entertainment activities and other positive
activities. Take care of patient’s diet along with proper
exercises and yoga can also be helpful in treatment of depression.
today’s mundane prominent life, people follow an endless race.
We have started getting their ill effects of so-called modernization.
Modernization has given rise to a spurt of new industries and also
the vehicles, which in turn polluting the atmosphere. The results
are various diseases in human being, Asthma is one of them.
Asthma is related to respiratory system in which patient suffers
from continuous cough and difficult breathing. This disease occurs
due to inflammation in bronchi present in lungs.
Types and causes of asthma:
(1) 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.
(2) 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:
(1) Radiological Examination
(2) Pulmonary Function Test
(3) Arterial Blood Gas Analysis
(4) Skin Hypersensitivity Test
Homoeopathic Treatment of Asthma:
Generally it’s a common view in public that Asthma is an incurable
disease, but this concept is wrong. Asthma can be permanently cured
by Homoeopathic medicines and the root is that Homoeopathy treats
the whole patient not only the disease. So Homoeopathy will treat
the patient as a whole, whatever the disease is, it doesn’t
matter that patient is suffering from Asthma or any other disease.
It will treat the patient (according to his nature) and if patient
is cured then the disease (may be Asthma) will be cured definitely.
So in Homoeopathy, medicine is given to patient and not for the
disease. It means if two brothers are twins and they are suffering
from Asthma, yet medicines of Asthma will differ according to their
nature. This concept is present only in Homoeopathy and not in other
Pathies. As we see that in other Pathies the medicines will be same
for a specific disease, which is present in patients with different
natures. The conclusion is that we must not be prejudiced that Asthma
or other diseases are curable or not curable because it can be concept
of Allopathy but this concept must not be applied for Homoeopathy.
In Homoeopathy there is permanent cure of Asthma. If one Homoeopath
fails to cure, it’s the fault of that Homoeopath and not of
Homoeopathy. One must consult to other Homoeopathic physician, as
we go to another Allopathic physician if we are not treated well
by one Allopathic physician but never say that Allopathy is bad,
just like that we must take Homoeopathy.
In case of Asthma Homoeopathy is efficacious in severe and emergency
conditions also. Asthma can be treated permanently by taking continuous
Homoeopathic medicine for some time. Though we have explained that
there is no specific medicine for disease, yet following are the
Homoeopathic medicines, which may be given in Asthma
Ammonium Carb. ; Antim-Tart. ; Argentum nitricum. ; Aspidosperma.
; Arsenic Album. ; Blatta. ; Carbo-veg. ;Cuprum Met. ;Hepar-Sulph.
; Ipecac.; Kali-Carb. ; Lachesis. ; Lobelia. ; Lycopodium. ; Phosphorus.
; Sambucus. ; Silicea. ; Spongia. ; Sulphur. etc.
Potency and doses of the medicine depends on the nature of disease
and patient itself.
Patient must have some precautions along with medicine such as keep
avoidance from Dust, Infections, Pollution, Eating style, Weather
Asthma patients must take balanced diet and water in proper quantity,
Sound sleep, protect him from effects of weather changes, and have
some light exercise and Yoga. He must do those exercises which give
strength to lungs and which increase the resistant power. Patients
suffering from Asthma must take care of their children from childhood,
because there is a great possibility of Asthma in them. There is
a suggestion for all Asthma patients that keeping distance from
nature can treat no disease. Always try to keep closeness to nature
you will be cured earlier, otherwise sensitivity will increase and
the disease will aggravate similarly.
NOTES TO BE CONSIDERED
As we know that there are some wrong concepts in public in case
of Homoeopathy such as -
(1) Homoeopathy doesn’t work in an emergency
(2) Homoeopathic medicine act slowly
(3) There are so many prohibitions in Homoeopathy
These are all wrong concepts, Homoeopathy works in emergency however
the patient is admitted in I.C.U. Homoeopathic medicine starts its
action within 5-10 minutes and there is not any precautions for
Homoeopathic medicines, precautions are only for the specific disease
only which are in all pathies. Consult your doctor before taking
any Homoeopathic medicine.
as much we are becoming conscious towards our physical appearance
and our beauty, as the beauty related problems are increasing. As
much beauty products are coming in market, they all are leading
to increase new diseases; so people are becoming anxious about their
beauty that what should be used and what not and they are being
misguided. One of the most commonly spurting beauty problems these
days is Hair Falling, which even teen-agers are facing very commonly.
People don’t know about the causes and treatment of Hair Falling
generally but they are following unscientific advices of many cosmetic
companies, some people use various types of domestic measures but
they are useless.
CAUSES OF HAIR FALLING:
Causes of Hair Falling can be differentiated in two classes
(1) Hair Falling due to some external diseases of head such as
(a) Tinea capitis.
(b) DLE ( Discoid Lupus Erythematosis )
causes are the reasons of localized hair falling.
(c) Seborrhic dermatitis (Dandruff) – This cause equal Hair
Falling of whole head.
(2) Hair Falling without any external disease of head such as
(a) Alopecia Areata.
(b) Secondary Syphilis.
These two causes are the reasons of localized Hair Falling at
some particular area of head.
(a) Tellogen Effluvium.
(b) Male and female pattern Hair loss.
Above three factors are the reasons of total Hair loss on head.
TREATMENT OF HAIR FALLING:
As it is described in starting that a person suffering from Hair
Falling wastes his time in domestic methods, up till then his
disease becomes sever. He uses different types of oils, shampoos,
creams, gels etc., which harms the Hairs in place of nourishing
them. If someone is suffering from Hair Falling, he must consult
to an expert doctor. Many a times patient does not need any medicine
and he become well by some simple methods or taking some precautions.
Many a times Hair Falling may be due to seasonal changes or due
to some exciting causes which become normal automatically.
If this problem persists after using many methods and doctors
consultations, then Homoeopathy can be the treatment of choice
for its efficacy in stopping Hair Falling, but remember that you
should consult to an able and expert Homoeopathic doctor because
nowadays so many companies are selling their products (Oil, Shampoo,
Cream etc) on the name of Homoeopathy and Homoeopaths are giving
these products to their patients for their personal benefits,
but they all are almost useless. Poor patient feels himself deluded
and doesn’t believe on other able Homoeopath, so patient
should consider it that the medicine prescribed by Homoeopathic
physician which is taken orally is the Remedy and other products
such as Shampoo, Oil, Cream etc. are only for business, they are
not so much effective.
As we always say that Homoeopathy treats the patient as a whole
and not the disease, and if any Homoeopath prescribes according
to the disease only and does not concentrate on patient as a whole
person, I can assure you that he never succeed; It might be possible
that some patient feel beneficial by chance. So conclusion is
that if patient is not treated well it is not the fault of Homoeopathy
but only and only of treating Homoeopath.
There are some Homoeopathic medicines that can be used in Hair
Falling; Acid Floor. ; Aloe’s. ; Ammonium mur. ; Antim crude.
; Arsenicum album. ; Aurum met. ; Acid phos. ; Baryta carb.; Borax.
; Calc.carb. ; Cantharis. ; Carbo. Veg. ; Carbonium. sulph. ;
China. ; Graphites. ; Helliborus. ; Hepar. Sulph. ; Hypericum.
; Kali.carb. ; Kali. Sulph. ; Lachesis. ; Lycopodium. ; Mancinella.;
Mercurius. ; Mag. Carb. ; Mezerium. ; Natrum. Mur. ; Nitric. Acid.
; Petrolium. ; Phosphorus. ; Plumbum. Met. ; Sarsaparilla. ; Selinium.
; Sepia. ; Silicea. ; Staphisagria. ; Sulphur. ; Thuja. ; Vinca.minor.
; Weis beden etc.
NOTES TO BE CONSIDERED
If pores of head are closed after Hair Falling then the growth
will not occur on that area, so if any physician or any other
person is claiming for growth of Hairs on that place, it’s
a lie, but further Hair Falling can be stopped. Combing the Hairs
and using Shampoo must be avoided. Excessive oil and oily products
must not be used in case of Dandruff and try to avoid vigorous
oil massage. Patient must take nutritious food at proper time,
proper sleep and take care of their health and do exercise.
cervical pain is a common problem in people. The reason is –
Cervical spondylosis. Cervical means- related to neck and Spondylosis
means- Ankylosis of vertebral joint (immobility and consolidation
of a joint). This is a Degenerative change.
Cervical Spondylosis is mainly found in middle aged and elder
stage of life. It may occur after some prolonged disease, injury
or some operation in elderly stage. It may be associated with
prolonged sitting such as computer work, writings etc. Cervical
spondylosis may be asymptomatic also, but painful when it is associated
with nerves. Mainly C 4/5, C 5/6, C 6/7 vertibral level and C5,
C6, C7 nerve roots are affected by this disease. Patient complains
of pain when compression of nerve roots occurs due to inter vertebral
disc prolapsus. Pain may radiate in the distribution of nerve
root. Some times pain is constant or it may increase at some specific
The main feature of Cervical Spondylosis is pain, which may radiate
in the distribution of nerve root. Patient feels stiffness in
neck along with pain. Neck movements may exacerbate the pain.
Parasthesia and sensory loss may be found in the affected segment
and there may be lower motor neuron signs including weakness,
wasting and reflex impairement.
Plain X- RAY of neck can investigate cervical Spondylosis. If
not diagnosed and symptoms become complicated then M.R.I. should
have to be done.
In Allopathy pain relievers (analgesics) are prescribed for pain
and cervical collar is suggested which resolute the symptoms.
Surgery is required if disease becomes more serious.
Homoeopathic- there is a false concept in people that Homoeopathy
gives slow relief and that is only for some time but can’t
cure permanently. Cervical Spondylosis can be cured with the help
of Homoeopathy. The query arises that how Homoeopathy can cure
enlarged and combined bones because conventionally it is considered
to be cured only by surgery? My personal view is that surgery
is not as effective in this disease as Homoeopathy is. This is
my clinical experience that the patient feels relief within 5-10
minutes after taking Homoeopathic medicine, it hardly matters
that for how long the disease is prevalent. Pain subsides and
stiffed neck starts moving within 5-10 minutes. This seems unbelievable
but it’s absolutely true. If patient takes Homoeopathic
medicine under guidance of some experienced doctor, he can be
Medicines are given according to the symptoms and nature of the
patient, so must consult to a good Homoeopathic doctor, some medicines,
which are prescribed mainly in this disease, are as follows -
Alumina. ; Ars.Alb. ; Bambusa. Ard. ; Belladona. ; Causticum.
; Cicuta. Virosa. ; Bryonia. Alb.; Gelsmium. ; Graphites. ; Lac.
Can. ; Paris. Quadrifolia. ; Acid. Phos. ; Rhododendron. ; Rhus.
Tox. ; Antim. Crude. etc.
Along with medicine patient should do exercises of neck and back
under the guidance of physiotherapist and try to change the habits
of sitting and working. Posture must be correct. It will help
to get cured. Be conscious about your diet.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Pressure is taken as a serious disease generally, which is actually
the result of modern life style. Blood Pressure is not a disease
itself; it is essential for our life. Every person has an optimum
Blood Pressure becomes high in some diseased condition. It goes
above the optimum level and it is known as High Blood Pressure,
but sometimes it becomes so high that it can be lethal to life.
This increased Blood Pressure is not a disease itself but only
the physical sign of some internal disturbance in body such as
fever. In other words we can say that the High Blood Pressure
is the result of compensatory mechanism, which makes proper flow
or circulation of blood to those tissues and organs, where the
circulation is disturbed, otherwise they can be dead.
High Blood Pressure is one of the harmful effects due to modern
life style. Nowadays there is a great competition in every field
and to make self-identity and secure it every person is doing
struggle. Modern life style, long period of struggle, tension,
lack of physical exercise, lack of tolerance, jealousy etc. are
the so many reasons which causes different types of diseases.
High Blood Pressure is one of those diseases. It is not true that
B.P. was not found in past but now it can be diagnosed by Sphygmomanometer.
BLOOD PRESSURE :
Pressure created by blood on the wall of blood vessel is known
as Blood Pressure.
During ventricular systole (contraction) it (B.P.) becomes maximum
and during ventricular diastole (dilatation) it becomes minimum.
So maximum Blood Pressure of a vessel is systolic pressure and
minimum Blood Pressure of a vessel is diastolic pressure. The
difference between both pressures (maximum and minimum) is known
as pulse pressure.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE OR HYPERTENSION:
If systolic pressure goes higher than the optimum level according
to the age and sex of a person, it is known as Hypertension. But
remember it that sometimes systolic pressure can be increased
due to some conditions but it is for a short period, which may
not be Hypertension. In case of Hypertension, diastolic pressure
also increases but not as much as systolic.
CAUSES OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE:
(2) Age- after 40 years generally.
(3) Sex- males > females.
(5) Alcohol intake and wrong eating habits.
(7) Mental causes.
(8) Physical diseases e.g. – diseases of kidney or heart.
(10) Essential Hypertension.
Mostly patient remains asymptomatic, uptill complications are
not produced. If Hypertension persists for a long time its complications
appears. Symptoms of Hypertension are mainly related to its complications
such as Angina, Left ventricular failure, Cerebrovescular disease
etc. Prominent symptoms of Hypertension are- headache or heaviness
in head, polyurea, irritation, impatience, change in behavior,
indifference, sleeplessness, vertigo, tension, restlessness, anxiety,
etc. Eyesight becomes weak with time, sometimes blood comes out
from eyes or nose due to increased pressure and patient may become
As we see that in case of Hypertension only few people move to
Homoeopathy, the reason behind is lack of knowledge about Homoeopathy
and having less faith in Homoeopathy. Another reason is lack of
confidence in Homoeopaths themselves due to incomplete knowledge
of Homoeopathy. Both conditions are miserable. So by having complete
knowledge we can make this Pathy useful to Hypertensive patients
and heart patients as well.
Commonly we see that if someone has increased Blood Pressure one
or two times, medicines are started. But my suggestion is that
try to find out the cause of increased Blood Pressure before starting
any medicine. We must suggest the patient to change his eating
habits, life style etc. and get his Blood Pressure checked routinely.
If the Blood Pressure is consistently high then we must treat
the patient. This is necessary because sometimes Blood Pressure
becomes high due to some adverse conditions and if we start the
medicine, the patient becomes habitual for that medicine and patient
as well. So be cautious about this.
Here I want to tell you one important thing that there is no need
to take Homoeopathic medicine for whole life, but by taking medicines
for a short duration Hypertension can be cured completely. There
are no side effects of Homoeopathic medicines as such. If patient
is taking Allopathic medicines for a long period (15- 20years)
and he wants to move for Homoeopathic treatment for his Hypertension,
then Allopathic medicines must be tapered off instead of stopping
suddenly, otherwise withdrawal symptoms of Allopathic medicine
Some people have a thought that if Blood Pressure suddenly becomes
very high then Homoeopathic medicines are not effective. This
is absolutely wrong, there are so many medicines in Homoeopathy,
which can control high Blood Pressure only within 15 – 20
minutes, and this is my practical experience. So Homoeopathy can
treat any serious condition successfully.
The conclusion is that if patient suffering from Hypertension
and is taking Homoeopathic medicines regularly, he can be cured
permanently There is no need to take medicine for whole life and
there is no side effect on his body. As I believe that in Homoeopathy
we treat the patient not the disease or in other words for a Homoeopath
patient is more important than the disease so as with Hypertension
also. So during the treatment of a Hypertensive patient a Homoeopath
must select the medicine according to the patient’s nature
not on the basis of Hypertension, I do not say that Hypertension
must not be under consideration but after patient’s nature.
After consulting a Homoeopathic physician following medicines
can be used in Hypertension: -
Acetanilidum. ; Acetic. Acid. ; Adonis. Vernalis. ; Adrenaline.
; Amyl. Nitrite. ; Arjuna. ; Asparagus. Off. ; Bothrops. Lanciolatus.
; Bromium. ; Cactus. Grandiflorus. ;Carbo. Veg. ; Cimicifuga.
; Conium. ; Convallaria. Maj. ; Cretaegus. ; Digitalis. ; Glonoine.
; Kalmia. Lat. ; Lachesis. ; Lithium. Carb. ; Lycopus. Verginicus.
; Magnolia. Grad. ; Naja. ; Natrum. Mure. ; Physostigma. ; Rauwolfia.
Serp. ; Latrodectus. M. ; Veratrum. Alb. ; etc.
Besides this, patient must take care of his eating habits, life
style. Regular exercise, meditation and yoga may be helpful. They
are all essential things along with medicines.So with the help
of these methods we can cure the Hypertension.
Due to change
in our life style, bad eating habits in our routine life, so many
diseases appear. There is no punctuality in our eating time, sleeping
time, working time. Along with it there is lack of physical exercise
with mental tensions and the result is many types of abdominal
diseases such as Indigestion, Gastric problem, Acidity, Constipation
etc. If these troubles go on for a long time, the person may suffer
WHAT ARE HEMORRHOIDS (PILES) :
Piles or Hemorrhoids is a sort of disease related to anal veins,
in which there is varicosity of anal veins and if pressure increases
on these anal veins due to any cause (such as constipation), the
walls of veins become weakened, which affects the process of dilatation
and contraction in the veins and veins remain dilated at last.
Blood doesn’t flow further from these dilated veins and
remains accumulated, so veins become swelled up. Further it, if
walls of veins become much weakened and pressure is more, the
veins may rupture and blood oozes out. This whole process is just
like the appearance of varicose veins in legs of those persons,
who stand for a long time, but in these cases blood doesn’t
come out as the veins of legs have more strength.
Hemorrhoids word has originated from 2 Greek words Haima = Blood
and Rhoos = Flowing and the Piles word is originated from a Latin
word Pila = Ball like.
TYPES OF HEMORRHOIDS (PILES):
There are two types of piles mainly
(1) External- present at outer side of anus.
(2) Internal- present in inner side of anus.
Sometimes they are found combined and known as Intero - External
Sometimes Piles may be a symptom of a disease such as- anal cancer,
during pregnancy, chronic constipation, making great effort for
urinating (in case of prostatic hypertrophy and urethral stricture).
CAUSES OF HEMORRHOIDS (PILES):
(1) Hereditary causes.
(2) Morphological causes.
(3) Anatomical causes.
(4) Exciting causes.
(1) Pain- cutting and pricking pain with burning in anus during
and after stool.
(2) Bleeding- bleeding after bursting out of Piles.
(3) Anal prolapsus- when disease becomes very severe.
(4) Secretion- sometimes sticky and bad smelling secretion comes
out after prolapsus of Piles.
(5) Anemia- found in rare patients. If bleeding occurs for a long
time and is not treated well then patient may become Anemic.
(1) Digital examination.
COMPLICATIONS OF HEMORRHOIDS (PILES): -
(1) Excessive bleeding.
TREATMENT OF HEMORRHOIDS (PILES):
Hemorrhoids or Piles is taken as surgically treated disease in
Allopathy or in other words Piles is considered to be treatable
only by operation. But Homoeopathy can treat Piles successfully
Generally it is seen that patient gets nervous when blood comes
out from Piles and pain occurs and in nervousness he gets it operated.
But the problem appears again after sometime in most of the patients
because surgery will not be effective until the cause of Piles
persists. So patient must consider it that surgery can’t
be the proper treatment for Piles, he will move towards Homoeopathy
at last. If blood is coming out and pain is violent, then by taking
Homoeopathic medicine bleeding will be stopped in 2-3 days and
pain becomes subsided in 5-7 minutes. So this suffering should
not bother patient. Consult to a Homoeopathic physician and disease
will be cured definitely.
Here I want to add one important thing after Homoeopathic treatment,
Piles move inside in number of patients, but in some cases Piles
remain outside the anus, but in both conditions, the treatment
is complete, because, the external Piles also will not create
any type of problems after the treatment, this is my personal
If after passing of the complaints by taking Homeopathic treatment,
Piles persist outside, then this is not the matter to be worried
about, as he will not be suffering again in future (If the treatment
is taken from a good Homoeopath.).
As I believe that treatment is given to whole patient not for
the disease in Homoeopathy, so I would like to say, every Homoeopath,
that he should consider this peculiarity of Homoeopathy. Medicine
should be given to the patient and not for the disease (nor for
the Piles), because if we treat the patient according to his nature,
the disease will be cured, what ever the disease is. It may be
Piles, High Blood-Pressure, Arthritis or any other disease. This
is the difference between Homoeopathy and the other systems of
the medicines, that where other system of medicines are given
for diseases Homoeopathic medicines are given to the patient and
only one Homoeopathic medicine will cure the all complaints. That
is why the Homoeopathic treatment is permanent. However, the following
medicines are prescribed for Piles (Hemorrhoids): -
Aesculus. Hipp. ; Agaricus. ; Aloe’s. ; Ars. Alb. ; Carbo.
Animalis. ; Carbo. Veg. ; Causticum. ; Collinsonia. ; Graphytes.
; Hamamalis. ; Kali. Ars. ; Kali. Carb. ; Kali. Sulph. ; Lachesis.
; Lycopodium. ; Muriatic. Acid. ; Nitric. Acid. ; Nux. Vom. ;
Palonia. ; Phosphorus. ; Pulsatilla. ; Sepia. ; Sulphur. Etc.
NOTES TO BE CONSIDERED
We should consider some important things along with treatment.
Those things should be avoided which cause Constipation, Acidity
or Diarrhea because Piles (Hemorrhoids) may appear again and condition
may be serious. Green vegetables, Fruit’s juices, Roughage,
Water should be taken in much quantity; Oil, Ghee, Spicy things
should be avoided. Morning walk (with naked feet on grass) is
very useful in case of Piles or Hemorrhoids.
Most of the people believe that Migraine is an incurable disease
and there is no permanent cure of Migraine, whenever patient feels
pain he has to take some analgesics or some sedative drugs for
pain relieving for the whole life. But this a wrong concept because
in Homoeopathy do have a permanent cure for Migraine. There is
another misconception about Migraine that if someone is suffering
from any kind of headache for a little long period this is also
taken as Migraine, but all kinds of headaches are not necessarily
Migraine. Headache may be of different types and Migraine is one
of them. Migraine is characterized by some symptoms, which are
different from other types of headaches.
Migraine can be of different types. Some important types
are given below:
(1) Classical Migraine.
(2) Common Migraine.
(3) Hemiplegic Migraine.
(4) Basilar Migraine.
(5) Cluster Headaches (Migraine Neuralgia).
Though Migraine can occur in any stage of life but more common
in young people. It may be hereditary also.
Migraine has some specific features – Episodic headache
which occur in one side of the head (left or right), vomiting
with headache, defects in the visual fields etc. Some patients
may have headache in both sides of head, but the main feature
of Migraine is episodic headache.
Attacks of Migraine occur at intervals, which vary from a few
days to several months and last for hours to days. Premonitory
symptoms occur in some patients in the form of zig- zag lines,
flashing colored lights or defects in visual field and in others
difficulty in speaking (dysphasia), hemiparesis (half sided paralysis),
hemianaesthisias (numbness in half side) may develop in association
Headache is usually localized to the frontal region then it spreads
to affect the whole of one side of the head and becomes generalized.
The pain is severe and throbbing and may be associated with vomiting,
nausea, photophobia, pallor, weakness, irritation etc. The pain
may aggravate by some exciting causes such as sun heat, sparkled
lights, some edibles (contraceptive pills), loss of sleep, tension
According to some other systems of medicine Migraine is an incurable
disease, which is cured with time automatically, but Homoeopathy
has its permanent cure. Patient gets relief within some minutes
after taking Homoeopathic medicine and permanently cured by taking
regular treatment for some time and never occur again.
Treatment must be taken from a qualified and experienced Homoeopath.
Do not take medicines on your own after reading books or articles.
Those people who think that Homoeopathy practice can be done by
reading books, they are in illusion. I want to tell them that
Homoeopathy has almost 3000 medicines and every Homoeopath must
know about those medicines because any of them can be the Remedy
for patient (because Homoeopathy treats the patient, not the disease).
So doctor will have to select the Remedy for a particular patient
among the 3000 medicines and patient will be cured only and only
by that particular medicine otherwise not. So it is not easy for
a Homoeopath to select a Remedy for a patient. If a Homoeopathic
physician wants to cure a patient entirely and permanently then
he must know about the whole patient, then he will find particular
nature of that patient and now whatever medicine has similar nature
to the patient, that will be the accurate medicine of that patient
and no other medicine can be.
So considering that for a Homoeopath patient is more important
than the disease or Homoeopathy treats the patient not the disease,
these following medicines in Homoeopathy can be useful in the
treatment of Migraine: -
Aconite nap. ; Aranea diadema. ; Argentum nit. ; Ars alb. ; Belladona.
; Bromium. ; Calcarea carb. ; Capsicum. ; Causticum. ; Cedron.
; Cocculus. ; Colocynth. ; Conium. ; Cyclamen. ; Digitalis. ;
Gelsmium. ; Glonoine. ; Ipecac. ; Iris v. ; Kali bich. ; Kali
mur. ; Kali phos. ; Lac can. ; Meliolotus. ; Mercurius. ; Natr
mur. ; Natr sulph. ; Nux vom. ; Olium anemale. ; Phosphorus. ;
Pulsatilla. ; Rhus tox. ; Sepia. ; Silicea. ; Spigellia. ; Stannum.
NOTES TO BE CONSIDERED
Patient must be careful about these precautions along with medicines
such as – Do take sleep properly, avoid heavy works (mental
or physical), take excessive water, be stress free, do some yoga
and pranayaam also, try to avoid the exciting causes.
is not a disease itself but it is only a symptom of some cerebral
disorder. Epilepsy means brief bouts of unconsciousness due to
some cerebral dysfunction or abnormality (structural or functional)
and impaired muscular activity for a short period due to disturbed
waves flowing in cerebrum. Epileptic seizures occur again and
again, and duration is different in different patients. During
the seizures abnormal rhythm appear in cerebral waves, which causes
different types of mental physical symptoms.
TYPES OF EPILEPSY:
Epilepsy can be divided in 2 types
(1) Primary generalized seizures – This type of seizures
appear simultaneously in whole cerebrum.
(a) Absence seizures – (1) Typical. (2) Atypical.
(b) Myoclonic seizures.
© Atonic seizures.
(d) Clonic seizures.
(e) Tonic seizures.
(f) Tonic- Clonic seizures.
(2) Partial seizures – These seizures are limited to some
specific parts of cerebrum.
(a) Simple partial seizures (consciousness is not affected).
(b) Complex partial seizures (consciousness is affected).
(c) Partial seizures secondary generalized to Tonic- Clonic seizures.
CAUSES OF EPILEPSY:
(2) Cerebral injury during birth.
(4) Oxygen deprivation in cerebrum.
(5) Some particular drugs.
(6) Alcohol withdrawal by habitual drunkards.
(7) Metabolic causes such as – Hypocalcaemia, Hypoglycemia,
Hyponatraemia, kidney or liver failure etc.
(9) Different types of inflammations – Sarcoidosis, Vasculitis
(10) Brain tumor.
(11) Cerebral injury.
There are some factors which may trigger the seizures such as-
(1) Stopping the intake of medicines at time.
(2) Sleep deprivation.
(5) Menstrual cycle.
(6) Tension and emotional stress.
(7) Nutritional deficiency.
(8) Moon phases.
INVESTIGATIONS OF EPILEPSY:
(1) History of patient and his symptoms.
(5) Diagnosis of that specific disease which causes the Epileptic
Some illiterate people take Epilepsy as a devil act. Many people
with Epilepsy feel stigmatized by society. That’s why they
search their treatment in quacks in place of consulting a doctor.
The disease becomes increasing and sometimes life threatening,
illiteracy is the cause behind this. So it’s a duty of doctor
to get people known about Epilepsy and to make them aware of their
myths, and for the treatment also. Then he must treat the patient
properly, so that patient can be cured.
The nature of Epilepsy should be explained to the patient and
his relatives. Relatives must be aware of the following guidelines:
(1) Move the patient away from danger (fires, water, machinery,
(2) Aware of if there is any obstruction in respiratory tract
and try to make respiration regular.
(3) Don’t give anything in mouth of patient during seizure.
It is often not possible to prevent tongue biting or clenched
teeth once a seizure has started.
(4) If convulsions continue for more than 5 minutes or begin again
before patient’s consciousness, summon medical help.
(5) After convulsions cease, turn patient in to semi- prone position.
(6) Patient becomes dull and suspicious for 30- 60 minutes after
convulsion, so don’t leave him alone until he seems normal.
(7) Try to consult some physician immediately.
RESTRICTIONS FOR PATIENT:
(1) Never go alone near danger (such as fire, water, high places,
(2) Should not lock the door when you are alone.
(3) Swimming should be discouraged.
(4) Take your identity card and medicines with you when traveling
alone. Write down about your disease, address of your home and
of your doctor, name of medicine, which you are taking in your
(5) Take your medicines regularly at proper time.
(6) Try to take sound sleep, try to be free of stress and do some
light exercises and yoga.
(7) Don’t feel inferior due to your disease as it is just
like other diseases, which can be treated.
(8) Be aware of attractive advertisements published in newspapers
Some patients become well without any treatment as time passed
over. Epilepsy can be treated in other systems of medicine also
but Homoeopathy has a quick approach and cures the Epilepsy comparatively
in less time. Homoeopathic medicines are easy to take and by regular
use under the guidance of a Homoeopathic physician, the disease
can be cured permanently. According to my believe in Homoeopathy
the nature of patient is more important than the disease to cure
a patient Homoeopathically. So in this disease also patient is
more important than the Epilepsy for a treating Homoeopathic physician,
although disease must be considered but after the patient as a
whole. So in Homoeopathy medicine of an Epileptic patient is selected
on the basis of particular nature of the patient and Epilepsy
will be cured.
Considering these facts that Homoeopathy treats the patient as
a whole, disease will be definitely cured automatically if treatment
is given according to Homoeopathic system, following Homoeopathic
medicines can be used in the treatment of Epilepsy under the guidance
of a good Homoeopathic physician: -
Argentum met. ; Argentum nit. ; Baryta mur. ; Belladona. ; Bufo
rana. ; Calcarea ars. ; Cuprum met. ; Cicuta virosa. ; Causticum.
; Hyocyamus. ; Nux vom. ; Plumbum met. ; Silicea. ; Sulphur. ;
Viscum alb. Etc.
Diabetes is one of the important diseases, which can arise by
irregular routine habits. Diabetes is world wide in distribution.
Every country of whole world is fighting against Diabetes. Although
every person knows about Diabetes, yet it is spreading rapidly.
Patients of Diabetes are increasing every year.
There are more than 3 crore people are suffering from Diabetes
in India itself. So we can guess how rapidly Diabetes is spreading
The alarming factor is that it is affecting younger people also.
So in coming years, when we are becoming more materialistic for
the sake of modernization, disturbing our routine and moving towards
fast food, what will be the result, we can imagine.
WHAT IS DIABETES:
Energy is essential for our daily routine work and to get this
energy our body cells need glucose. The food that we take is converted
in to glucose and this moves to different body cells by blood
circulation. Insulin, which is a pancreatic hormone, helps in
glucose supply. Insulin is just like key, which opens the doors
of cells to enter the glucose. Glucose can’t enter the cells
if Insulin is insufficient and glucose remains in blood. This
condition is known as Hyperglycemia (Diabetes).
TYPES OF DIABETES:
(a) Type- 1st: Insulin Dependant Diabetes Mellitus (I.D.D.M.).
(b) Type- 2nd: Non- Insulin Dependant Diabetes Mellitus (N.I.D.D.M.).
(2) Secondary to other pathology
(a) Pancreatic disease.
(b) Excessive secretion of Insulin Inhibitor Hormones.
(c) Some drugs such as- Steroids, Diuretics etc.
(d) Diseases of liver.
CAUSES OF DIABETES:
(2) Irregular routine and eating habits.
(3) Some viruses which affects the Pancreas.
(4) Weak resistant power.
(5) Age factor.
SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES: -
(1) Poly urination or frequent urination.
(3) Increased thirst- takes plenty of water.
(5) Lack of healing power in case of wounds.
(6) Vaginal infection.
(7) Sexual troubles.
(8) Loss of weight without any cause.
(9) Numbness and creeping sensation in extremities.
(10) Blurred vision.
If all above symptoms are present in one person, there he should
get his blood investigated, because there is possibility of Diabetes
in these conditions.
DIAGNOSIS OF DIABETES:
Blood Glucose Test and Urine test can diagnose diabetes. Both
the tests can be done in laboratory at your home. There are so
many types of Blood Glucose
Meters available in market nowadays. Blood Glucose Meters are
useful for those patients who need daily investigation of blood
sugar. There are some specific conditions in which patient has
a need of routine checkup of blood sugar such as- during any serious
disease, during tension, heart disease, liver disease, hypoglycemic
attacks, pregnancy etc.
TREATMENT OF DIABETES:
Treatment of Diabetes can be divided in to 3 parts
(1) Dietary habits or Diet.
(2) Diet and oral hypoglycemic drugs.
(3) Diet and Insulin.
Almost 50% people get control over Diabetes by dietary balance
alone, 20- 30% patients need oral hypoglycemic drugs and 20- 30%
patients need Insulin.
DIET OF A DIABETIC PATIENT:
This is a big and first question of every Diabetic patient that
what to take in diet and what not. So Diabetic patients must know
about dietary factors. This is usually a common theory that Diabetic
patients should take sugar free foods and avoiding sugar and sweet
things can control Diabetes. But it is not perfectly true, actually
it all depends on Calorie intake in diet and as we know that sugar
and sweets have much Calories and they must be avoided, but it
should not be happened that you start high Calorie diet after
avoiding sweet things. You can take bread, chapatti, rice, potatoes
which have carbohydrate. They are cheap and will control your
desire of sugar or sweet things, when you feel hungry.
Try to keep the intake of food constant and take nutritious snacks
such as fruits, salad etc. in between. Use milk without cream
and vegetable oil, and change the way of cooking- do increase
quantity of steamed, roasted and boiled food in your diet. Fat
and farinaceous products such as ghee, butter, fried food etc.
should be reduced in your diet. Pure carbohydrate like sugar,
jaggery, honey, cake and chocolates should be avoided. Meat, cheese
and other starchy food should be used the least.
(1) An obese and aged person requires approximately 1000- 1600
k. cal. every day.
(2) An aged who is not obese requires approximately 1400- 1800
k. cal. every day.
(3) A young and active person needs approximately 1800- 3000 k.
cal. every day.
Diabetes is a serious disease, at the same time can be controlled
easily. If not controlled within the time, can lead to grave disorders,
eventually lethal for the patient. Thus as soon as a person is
diagnosed for Diabetes, he should see a physician and should be
Conventionally Diabetes is considered as incurable, but in Homoeopathy
there are some reports that Diabetes can be cured. Instead of
considering it as a claim its better to understand that if a Diabetic
patient is treated by a Homoeopath on the principles of Homoeopathy,
he can be cured by taking regular treatment. The blood glucose
level can be controlled very soon, no matter how disturbed it
is. More over after the regular treatment your blood glucose level
may not rise in future miraculously. But again it should be remembered
that in Homoeopathy a patient is treated, not the disease. Thus
consider patient and not only the Diabetes, and then only the
treatment can be successful. Now my personal opinion is that in
Homoeopathy Diabetes can be controlled very soon as compared to
the other systems of medicine, yet no Homoeopath should blind
claim to cure Diabetes ignoring the principles of Homoeopathy,
because if patient is not cured then he will blame Homoeopathy
not that Homoeopath. So considering the aforesaid facts, following
Homoeopathic medicines can be used in the treatment of Diabetes:
Bridelia ferruginea. ; Morinda lucida. ; Morinda morindoides.
; Nauclea Latifolia; Opium; Orthosiphon Staminius; Floriginum;
Uranium Mur; Uranium Nitricum ; Vinca rosea ; Acitic acid ; Helonias
; Lycopodium ; Flouric Acid ; Phosphorus ; Plumbum Met ; Syzygium
Jamb ; Terantula Hisp ; Terebinthina ; etc
patient is benefited by regular exercise and one should consult
his physician for it. Start your exercise slowly but it should
be regular. Exercise daily at the same time.
Few important things are
Do not exercise empty stomach.
2) Do not exercise just after taking insulin.
3) Do not exercise if your blood sugar level is high and diabetes
is not under control.
COMPLICATIONS OF DIABETES:
diabetes is not controlled it is a serious disease and may be
The complications of diabetes may vary from – Dim to complete
loss of vision, kidney dysfunctions, recurrent infections, gangrene,
sexual incompatibility, mental imbalances and heart diseases.
Hypoglycemia: A condition when the blood sugar level goes below
the normal. A diabetic patient may encounter with it suddenly.
Thus it should always be checked, otherwise can prove to be more
dangerous than Hyperglycemia.
Mithilesh Sharma from Jaipur came to Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy
Center for the treatment of joint pains, spindling fingers, swelling
of the wrist and knees, two years ago. She had been suffering
from these complaints for almost 10-12 yrs. All physicians diagnosed
it as Rheumatoid Arthritis, but every treatment was inefficient.
The patient was completely cured after a regular treatment from
Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy Center.
Smt. Kusum Agarwal from Jaipur was suffering from joint pains
for last 15 yrs. Any type of movement such as sitting, standing,
walking etc was too much painful or I can say it was almost impossible
to her. After taking different treatments, when she came to Dr.
Pandey’s Homoeopathy Center, she was suggested to get some
investigations done in which Rheumatoid factor was shown positive
and there were structural changes in X-Ray Reports. These investigations
were showing that patient has Rheumatoid Arthritis. Treatment
was given from Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy Center for 9-10
months regularly and she was permanently cured.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory joint disease,
which is the most common form of joint disease. In its typical
form it is a symmetrical, destructive and deforming polyarthritis,
which affects the small and large synovial joints, associating
extra-articular features and presence of circulating antiglobulin-
antibodies in blood (Rheumatoid Factor).
Although, rheumatoid arthritis is prevalent throughout the world,
but a higher proportion of patients is in western and urban communities.
Prevalence of disease is three times more in females or female
to male ratio is 3:1.Generally this disease occurs between the
age of 30-50 yrs. Sometimes, the symptoms may start before the
age of 16 yrs, which is known as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS:
Although the cause of the disease is not known exactly, but there
is increasing evidence that this is triggered by T-Lymphocytes
activation in genetically predisposed individuals and by production
of inflammatory cytokins. So hereditary factor is found in the
OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS:
American Rheumatism Association suggests following symptoms, which
can be helpful in identifying a case of rheumatoid arthritis-
1) Stiffness in the joints in morning hours( for more than one
2) Inflammation or arthritis of three or more joints.
3) Arthritis of upper extremities.
4) Symmetrical arthritis.
Above four symptoms must be present for at least six weeks to
confirm Rheumatoid Arthritis.
DIAGNOSIS OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS:
investigations are associated with above features:
1) Rheumatoid nodules
2) Rheumatoid Factor
3) Radiological changes
INTERNAL CHANGES OR PATHOLOGY IN JOINTS:
earlier stage is swelling and congestion of the synovial membrane
and the underlying connective tissues, which becomes infiltrated
with Lymphocytes( CD4 T-CELLS), Plasma cells and Macrophages.
This causes effusion of synovial fluid into the joint spaces during
active phase. After sometime hypertrophy of the synovial membrane
occurs with the formation of lymphoid follicles. Muscles adjacent
to the inflamed joints are also affected. Above changes may also
affect the pleura, lungs, pericardium and sclera.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a Extra vascular Immune Complex Disease
as well as cell mediated immunity disorder which causes inflammation
in joints, granuloma formation and destruction of joints.
majority of patients the onset is insidious which is not experiences
initially. Then after sometime, joint pain, stiffness and symmetrical
swelling of peripheral joints sets in, which increase with time.
Initially, pain may be felt only on movement of joints but rest
pain and especially early morning stiffness are characteristic
features of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
As the disease progresses, involving the other organs of the body,
the other symptoms like- fever, weight loss, profound fatigue,
weakness occurs. Some other symptoms like- sweating in palms and
soles, increased heartbeat may occur less often. With the progression
of disease, nodules form on joints and other areas adjacent to
joints. These changes give the fingers a “Spindled “
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic, complex and very painful disease.
At the onset of Rheumatoid Arthritis patient takes firstly it
as simple joint pain and starts domestic treatment and then analgesics
for pain relief, but after sometime both types of treatment become
ineffective and pain becomes intolerable, regular, and disease
progresses. So as soon as the patient feels the symptoms of Rheumatoid
Arthritis, he must consult to a doctor and consider it that Rheumatoid
Arthritis can’t be treated in 1- 2 days, so he must have
patience for complete treatment. As the disease progresses gradually,
so the treatment does. So patient must know that treatment of
Rheumatoid Arthritis is slow and long, it’s not just a matter
of few days. Most of the patients think that Rheumatoid Arthritis
is an incurable disease but it is not true because by Homoeopathic
treatment Rheumatoid Arthritis can be permanently cured. As in
Homoeopathy we treat the patient as a whole, not the disease only,
so in case of Rheumatoid Arthritis a Homoeopath must treat the
patient as a whole, should not give medicine for the disease (Rheumatoid
Arthritis), disease will be cured surely. Considering this fact
following Homoeopathic medicines can be used in the treatment
Acetanilidum. ; Apis mell. ; Belladona. ; Bryonia alb. ; Calc
carb. Calc phos. ; Calc fluor. ; Caulophyllum. ; Colchicum. ;
Formica rufa. ; Formic acid. ; Manganum acet. ; Merc sol. ; Phytolacca.
; Rhododendron. ; Rhus tox. ; silicea. ; sulphur. etc.
MEDICATION FOR ARTHIRITIS DEFORMANS:
If deformity (nodules, deviation of fingers) is developed in extremities
in Rheumatoid Arthrits, then following Homoeopathic medicines
can be useful –
Acid benz. ; Ars alb. ; Calc phos. ; Causticum. ; Cimicifuga racemosa.
; Colchicum. ; Guiacum. ; Iodium. ; Kali bich. ; Ledum pal. ;
Pulsatilla. ; sulphur. etc.
Besides this, patient must take care of proper rest, exercises
(Physiotherapy), Yoga, proper diet, weight etc. In India use of
garlic and avoidance of curd and other sour things are considered
useful in Rheumatoid Arthritis.
RENAL CALCULUS OR STONES
25 years old Mahavir singh came to Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy
Center with intolerable pain in his renal area of the back (loin).
This pain was radiating round the flank to urethra. Besides this
pain he had another problem of Dysuria (obstruction in flow of
urine), Haematuria (blood in urine) and burning during urination.
He had this problem2 years ago also, but both times Mahavir singh
got it operated and felt relief. After 2 years he has got the
same problem this time and physician again suggested him for operation
but this time he refused it and finally he concluded to go towards
Homoeopathy by someone’s suggestion to get permanent cure
of recurring Renal Calculus. He brought his reports, pain was
so sever that he found himself unable to speak. After looking
his reports, it was found that he was suffering from Renal Calculus
again. The size of Calculus was 9 mm. And type of Calculus was
calcium oxalate type. After examining the patient, one medicine
was given orally and the pain was subsided almost 50% within few
minutes of medication. Then treatment was given continuously and
investigations were done again, the Calculus was completely removed.
Patient was advised to take medicines for some time and after
that he was permanently cured because he never had complain of
Renal Calculus again since 5 years after that Homoeopathic treatment
given by Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy center.
15 years old Sita Devi had been suffering from pain in her loin
for last 2 years, but pain was not continuous and sever also,
so she was not much concerned of it. She came to know that she
had a Renal Calculus when she went for Ultrasound study for some
other trouble. Her physician suggested her to get it operated
but she refused it because she was not suffering very much. But
she started medicines for Renal Calculus but did not get any relief.
Then she went to some Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic physicians but
it was worthless. The she came to Dr. Pandey’s Homoeopathy
center, when her case history was listened; she was asked to get
it investigated. It was confirmed by examining her reports that
she had Phosphate type of Calculus, which is not removed easily
and we can say not passed easily. Then she had been given continuous
Homoeopathic treatment for some period and again investigations
were made, they reported her normal, the Calculus had been removed.
Renal Calculus is very common nowadays, but it is very much painful.
The person who has been suffered by this disease, never wants
to be suffered again as he has tolerated that sever pain. Renal
Calculus forms in our body by deposition of some minerals and
other particles. Calculus consists of aggregates of crystals and
small amounts of proteins and glycoproteins. Different types of
Calculi occur in different parts of the world and dietary factors
probably play a part in determining the varying patterns. Calculi
may be of different types such as- Calcium oxalate (most common),
Calcium phosphate, Cystine stone, Uric acid stone etc.
In developing countries bladder stones or calculi are common particularly
in children, whereas in developed countries the incidence of childhood
bladder stone is low and renal stones in adults more common. A
recent survey found that 4% of population has stones in the urinary
tract, but prevalence varies in different areas.
CAUSES OF RENAL CALCULUS:
There is not any particular cause to formation of stones but there
are some conditions associated with stone formation, they are-
(1) Obstruction of urinary tract.
(2) Infection of urinary tract.
(3) Climate and diet.
(4) Heavy works causing excessive sweating.
(5) Excess of Calcium, Oxalates or Cystines in urine.
(7) Medullary Sponge Kidney.
The pH of urine influences the formation of stones, an alkaline
urine tends to increased precipitation of calcium phosphate and
may be responsible for calcium phosphate stones in patients with
renal tubular acidosis; whereas solubility of uric acid and cystine
is reduced in acidic urine which tends to formation of these types
of stones. Today in prosperous countries most calculi occur in
healthy young men in whom there is no clear cause investigated.
SYMPTOMS OF RENAL CALCULUS:
The symptoms may vary in different patients. These vary according
to the size, shape and position of the Calculus. Renal Calculi
may be present for years without giving rise to symptoms and may
be discovered during radiological examination for other disorder.
However, following symptoms are more common:
Pain in urinary tract, burning in urination, obstructed flow of
urine, blood in the urine occurs sometimes. When a Calculus becomes
impacted in the uereter, an attack of renal colic develops, which
may occur suddenly. Soon the pain radiates round the flank to
the groin and often in to the sexual organs. The pain steadily
increases in intensity to reach a maximum in few minutes. Pain
is so intensified that patient becomes restless and generally
tries to obtain relief by changing position and by pacing the
room. Patient may groan in agony, and then there may be sweating
and sometimes vomiting also.
INVESTIGATIONS FOR RENAL CACULUS:
The symptoms found in patient such as intolerable pain, burning
in urination etc. indicate towards the disease (Renal Calculus).
Any patient suspected of having stones should have x- ray and
sonography of urinary tract along with urine test. If there is
doubt about the cause then I.V.P. during an attack may help.
TREATMENT OF RENAL CALCULUS:
Whenever patient feels any complaint related to urine or urinary
tract, he should consult to good physician. The immediate treatment
of Renal Colic is application of warmth to the site of pain. Renal
Calculus can be cured in Allopathy also, but when condition comes
to operation or calculi are forming repeatedly then Homoeopathy
is useful. Nowadays many Allopths give prime importance to Homoeopathy.
In Homoeopathy, calculi can be removed in short period without
pain. So patients prefer Homoeopathy now for treatment of Renal
Calculus. During the treatment of Renal Calculus a Homoeopath
should give importance to the patient as a whole, not the disease,
then he can cure a patient permanently. Considering this fact
of Homoeopathy following Homoeopathic medicines can be helpful
to treat the Renal Calculus –
Antim crude. ; Benzoic acid. ; Berberis vulg. ; Cactus. ; Calculus
renalis. ; Calcarea carb. ; Cantharis. ; China. ; Coccus cacti.
; Lachesis. ; Litium carb. ; Lycopodium. ; Nitirc acid. ; Ocimum
can. ; Pareira brava. ; Phosphorus. ; Sarsaparilla. ; Sepia. ;
If calculi formation is occurring repeatedly, then medicine should
be given to the patient not for the disease. Besides it, patient
should take plenty of water and should avoid the diet containing
calcium and phosphate. Patient should avoid those habits, which
cause excessive sweating.
Acne- Pimples look very simple disease, but they cause beautiful
face to be ugly, then this condition makes patient puzzled.
Teenagers suffer mostly from Acne-Pimples and this is the age
when someone becomes very much conscious about his appearance.
So they take this disease seriously.
Pimples are found mostly on face but they may present over chest,
shoulders and back also. Pimples affect both male and female similarly
but in females the common age is 16- 17 years and in males it
is 17- 19 years. In 90% of the patients Pimples become healed
until the age of 23- 25 years, but in 5% cases in females and
1% cases in males need proper treatment.
Acne- Pimples is a skin disease, which may be due to many causes,
but the main cause is excessive secretion from Sebaceous- glands.
So increased sebum secretion and abnormal Keratinization at the
opening of Sebaceous- glands cause obstruction in sebum secretion
and its flow. Proprionobacterium acnes colonizes the Pilo- Sebaceous
duct, breaks down Triglycerides in the sebum to Free- Fatty Acids
and become the cause of inflammation and at last Acne forms. Excessive
hormonal effects, excessive secretion of sebum and hereditary
causes are another factors which stimulate the Acne formation.
Sometimes cosmetics, local irritants, lack of hygiene, weather
changes, improper diet, increased intake of oily edibles, some
drugs etc. can be the causative factor of Acne.
CLINICAL FEATURES OF ACNE- PIMPLES:
Acne is limited to the face, shoulders, upper chest and back.
Seborrhea or greasy skin always presents. Acne occurs in the form
of papules, pustules, nodules and cyst with one or two types of
lesions (Acne) predominating. Many times white thick liquid comes
out by rupturing them. Some times itching and pain may occur in
Acne. In Acne Rosacea there is surrounding area around the lesion,
which is red in colour. There are other less common variants of
Acne such as- Conglobate Acne, Acne Fulminans, Excoriated Acne,
Infantile Acne, Exogenous Acne, Drug- Induced Acne etc.
TREATMENT OF ACNE – PIMPLES:
As it has told before that Acne becomes healed itself till 23-
25 years of age. So fewer persons need the treatment, but as we
know that this disease affects young people mainly and makes the
beautiful face ugly, so no one can wait till 25 years of age to
Nowadays there is marketing everywhere in medical profession,
so is for this disease. Beauty clinics are opening in streets;
colonies, cities everywhere and people are being misguided. Costly
lotions, creams and medicines are being sold in the name of beauty.
Most of the people who are working in these beauty clinics do
not know about the human body and if some persons know about this
a bit, they have knowledge only of skin and nothing else. But
you must know that skin is the part of our body and it doesn’t
have problem externally, but it is affected by every function
of our body, our habits as well as diet also affect our skin,
it is proved by medical research. So do not take skin apart from
the body, otherwise it will be really apart and they all people
will be responsible who are selling their products on the name
of beauty clinics, cosmetics and herbal by giving attractive advertisements
for the treatment of Acne- Pimples. The person who is treating
and the person who is treated both are unknown about the coming
bad effects of these kinds of treatments. You must know that suppression
of Acne can give rise to a serious disease from which both parts
are unknown, so be aware of it and must consult to a specialist
Acne can be treated by Homoeopathy in very short duration permanently
without any bad effect over the body. So Homoeopathy can be the
treatment of choice for Acne-Pimples. In Homoeopathy we treat
the patient not the disease, so we must treat the patient of Acne
also according to his nature for permanent cure. If we give medicine
only for the Acne then we cannot cure him permanently, so we must
take patient as a whole for every disease as well for Acne. This
is the basic fact of Homoeopathy, which must be considered by
every Homoeopathic physician for permanent cure of any disease
otherwise failures are inevitable. One more thing must be clear
in the sight of people that there are many Homoeopathic medicine
manufacturing companies which are selling their cosmetic products
and claiming them Homoeopathic but any external application in
the form of lotion, cream or other packed products are not Homoeopathic.
So do not be misguided by them it is not true Homoeopathy, by
using them nobody can be cured but bad effects may be possible.
By keeping all above-mentioned things in mind following Homoeopathic
medicines under the guidance of Homoeopathic physician can be
helpful in the treatment of Acne-Pimples: -
Antim crude. ; Ars alb. ; Aurum met. ; Calc carb. ; Calc phos.
; Calc silicata. ; Carbo animalis. ; Carbo veg. ; Carb sulph.
; Causticum. ; Crotalus hor. ; Fluoric acid. ; Graphites. ; Hepar
sulph. ; Ignatia. ; Kali bich. ; Kali brom. ; Kali carb. ; Lachesis.
; Lycopodium. ; Merc sol. ; Natrum mur. ; Nitric acid. ; Nux vom.
; Phosphorus. ; Pulsatilla. ; Rhododendron. ; Rhus tox. ; Sarsaparilla.
; Sepia. ; Silicea. ; Sulphur. ; Syphilinum. ; Teucrium. ; Thuja.
; Tuberculinum. ; Zincum met. etc.
Besides this healthy diet, intake of plenty of water, exercises
and yoga are also helpful in treating the Acne.
There are many regular physical activities in our body, which
are not considered normally, but if someone feels some abnormality
or slight alteration in these activities, then he realizes the
importance of these activities. As we do not notice it that we
are eating, bathing, breathing and sleeping for rest etc. normally.
Now, if someone has lack of appetite or constipation or due to
some reason he couldn’t take bath, then it is realized how
much important these activities are in human life. Like this,
we do not notice it that we take sleep daily at night, so if anyone
couldn’t take sleep for one day then he realizes the importance
Sleep is one of the most important regular activities of human
body. If somebody is suffering from Insomnia (sleeplessness),
then he can suffer by many other physical and mental diseases.
He feels his life inactive. He feels dejected always and becomes
physically and mentally restless. He feels his life as a burden.
So sleep is necessary for our entire development and for gain
The whole physiology of sleep can be divided in to two parts:
(1) Rapid Eye Movement (REM).
(2) Non- Rapid Eye Movement (Non- REM).
Non- REM sleep has 4 stages in which 2 stages we known as “Slow
Wave” or deep sleep. First part of sleep or REM comes slowly
after passing off the second part of sleep or Non- REM, normally
after 90 minutes. Dreams occur during this period. So entire sleep
of night is actually the cycle of Non- REM and REM sleep, in which
REM part is longer. Insomnia is the inability to sleep or abnormal
wakefulness. In this condition either sleep comes hardly or sleep
is of least period and patient wakes up in short period.
CAUSES OF INSOMNIA:
Insomnia may be one of the symptoms of depression, anxiety, restlessness
or any mental disorder. Insomnia is very common disease nowadays
and the main cause is changing life style. Mostly those people
suffer from insomnia, which are facing so many tensions. So when
somebody has sleeplessness, he starts thinking about this disease
always and becomes tensed and tries to take sleep but he gets
failure and sleep goes faraway, because mind starts thinking more
and more and has no rest. So, once Insomnia starts, after it efforts
start to make it and lastly a circle made and the result is Insomnia.
SYMPTOMS OF INSOMNIA OR SLEEPLESSNESS:
Common symptoms of Insomnia are:
Less sleep or absence of sleep, to be stressful, distressful after
sleep, falling asleep for short time during the working hours
or taking nap, irritability, headache, body ache, restlessness,
indifference in everything, anxiety etc. Gradually as time passes

TREATMENT OF INSOMNIA OR SLEEPLESSNESS:
Allopathic medicines, which are used for sleep, have many side
effects (not always). So every patient must try to avoid these
sleeping pills or strictly avoid them, but in both conditions
there is harm to patient and disease becomes progressed. Homoeopathy
can be very much helpful to these patients, because Homoeopathic
medicines have no side effects at all; they are very effective
and no need to take them life long.
To treat the patient of Insomnia, try to find the cause of sleeplessness.
If doctor finds out the cause, then it is easy to treat the patient.
The counseling made by doctor is very much important for these
patients, by which it can be known that what is the mental condition
of patient, what is his present condition etc. So if the cause
is clear, then Insomnia becomes treated itself.
Doctor, the patient’s relatives and his friends must be
friendly to him in case of mental distress or any other mental
disease. This plays an important role in the treatment. If patient
is suffering from Insomnia due to any physical disease, then this
physical disease must be treated first. Following Homoeopathic
medicines under the guidance of Homoeopathic physician can be
helpful in treatment of Insomnia: -

sinuses are air spaces, which are located in skull bone in the
both frontal sides.
TYPES OF SINUSES:
Sinuses can be differentiated in 4 types according to their position
in the skull bone, they are-
(1) Frontal sinus.
(2) Maxillary sinus.
(3) Ethmoidal sinus.
(4) Sphenoidal sinus.
SIGNIFICANCE OF SINUSES:
In human body every structure, which seems minor and useless,
have great importance. So sinuses are important in so many functions
or physiology of body. They are:
(1) Air conditioning.
(2) Lessened the weight of skull bones.
(3) Increase the resonance of voice.
(4) Providing more space for teeth eruption.
(5) Development of facial skeleton after birth.
Inflammation of any of above sinuses is known as Sinusitis. It
can be classified in 2 types-
(1) Acute Sinusitis – Inflammation just after infection.
(2) Chronic Sinusitis – Inflammation due to successive acute
infections, which become permanent.
Sinusitis can be Suppurative or Non – Suppurative.
CAUSES OF SINUSITIS:
(1) Bacterial infection due to coryza.
(2) Dental sepsis.
(3) Traumatic – Fracture of sinus, infection spreading to
sinus after injury in other parts.
(4) Swimming – Swimming in infectious water.
(5) Nasal obstruction – D.N.S. (Deviated Nasal Septum),
nasal polyp etc.
(6) Lack of or absence of air transmission to sinuses.
(7) Pollution, frequent coryza by taking cold, lack of resistant
power or lack of nutrients in diet may cause Sinusitis.
(8) Streptococcus, Pneumococcus, Staphylo- Coccus and H. Infuenzae
SYMPTOMS OF SINUSITIS:
Patient becomes suffered by continuous coryza and cold. Nose becomes
obstructed. In earlier stage discharge is watery but later on
it becomes thick yellowish like pus. Pain becomes starts in sinuses,
which is affected. Pain increases by stooping forward, sneezing

As time passes, patient becomes irritable.
INVESTIGATIONS OF SINUSITIS:
(1) Anterior and Posterior Rhinoscopy.
(2) Trans- illumination test.
(3) X-Ray P.N.S.
(4) Nasal swab.
TREATMENT OF SINUSITIS:
Sinusitis seems like common coryza, but if this disease has become
long lasting, then it may be dangerous or we can say harmful to
our body. So if patient develops the symptoms of Sinusitis, then
it should not be taken superficially but he must consult to a
If patient considers it seriously and consult to a good Homoeopathic
physician, then Sinusitis will be cured and along with this patient
will not suffer from side effects of medicines as happens with
Allopathic treatment, so Homoeopathy is very much successful in
case of Sinusitis. It is better to consult a good Homoeopathic
physician in starting of disease than to go other systems of medicine
again and again as Homoeopathy cures it permanently. As we know
that in Homoeopathy patient is treated, not the disease so considering
this fact and by consulting a good Homoeopathic physician following
Homoeopathic medicines can be useful in the treatment of Sinusitis-
Calc carb, Calc sulph , Hepar sulph , Hydrastis, Kali bich, Kali
sulph, Merc sol, Phosphorus, Pyrogenium, Silicea, Sticta, Sulphur,
PRECAUTIONS FOR SINUSITIS:
(1) Dust, smoke, alcohol and tobacco should be avoided.
(2) Regular intake of nutritious diet.
(3) Treatment must be taken if there is any problem in teeth.
(4) Be hygienic especially of nose and throat.
(5) Take regular sleep.
(6) Regular exercises and yoga are helpful in Sinusitis.
(1) Homeopathy is not disease oriented but patient oriented i.e.
focusing and treating the constitution of a patient, adhering
to the lows of nature.
(2) When an individual goes against or is compelled to go against
the norms of nature, the individual is gradually being pulled
towards some ailment.
(3) Mental injury is more detrimental than a physical one.
(4) Polluted, weak, negative thoughts cause more harm to the human
body than the contaminated food.
(5) Our body is self- controlled, mechanized, competent- a self-computer.
Any undesirable (uneatable) food makes a reaction in the body
taking the form of vomiting, diarrhea, burning or allergy.
(6) Please do not impose your thoughts on your body. Eat only
when hungry, drink only when thirsty. Eating and drinking on whims
and fancies will only degenerate your digestive system. Rigorous
fasting will only develop ulcers. Do not suppress desires and
(7) Any weird or abnormal behavior of a child should not be targeted
at; instead observance and discussions with doctor is the need
of the hour. No change takes place in our body that does not has
its meaning. Any deviation from the accepted norms of the mental
conditions either in the form of hyper or hypo such as anger,
jealousy or sensitivity brings you closure to physical symptoms
(8) Your emotions, thoughts and behavior aid in understanding
your personality. Do not rate them as your weakness, you must
tell them to your Homeopathic physician.
(9) Your Homeopathic physician should be enlightened on any of
your sixth sense – an intuition, clairvoyance and hearing
or seeing some noises and pictures when in isolation.
(10) Your dreams, any particular/ specific fear, low feelings
in your mind, delusions, illusions etc. all these help your Homeopathic
physician in selection of correct medicine for you. Share these
symptoms with your Homeopathic physician.
(11) Do not panic or get scared of a disease. For Homeopathy,
disease is not so important as much as the individual and his
constitution. Do not hide your disease and discuss every symptom
with your Homeopathic physician.
(12) Your previous ailments and the modes of treatment taken,
should be told to the doctor. Homeopathy believes that suppression
of diseases leads to incurable disease.
(13) It is a misconception (wrong belief) that Homeopathy worsens
your disease, infect if a suppression caused discomfort or disease
and a right Homeopathic medication surfaces it, this does not
mean that the patient is worst instead feels relieved and the
patient’s inner strength and vitality gets a boost.
(14) The reactions and repercussions are a part and parcel of
our body and life but not disease. Allergy is our body’s
reaction, which should not be suppressed with medication.
(15) Anti -allergic, Anti- emetic, Anti- biotic, Anti- diarrheic,
Vasodilators or any kind of hormone therapy always drains the
energy of an individual, which means getting you closer to doom’s
day (death) because it works against our live sustenance energy.
(16) Allergy, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Hypertension, Hemorrhage, Fever
etc. these all prove our body’s immune system and when the
causes are tapped and treated- all is normal once again, it should
not be suppressed by taking any anti medicine, instead proper
investigations and cause should be pursued. Misuse and consumption
of any and every medicine should be avoided.
(17) It is true that a single pill (anti- therapy) brings you
immediate relief, but just think of the alien, unknown substance
that has been consumed and if not expelled by the body- the level
of harm this poison can cause in your body and mind.
