Acne is derived from the Greek word ‘akme’ which meant facial eruption . In Telugu it is known as ‘motimalu’, in Kannada, as ‘maadava’ and in Hindi  as ‘ muhaasa.

Difference Between  Acne Rosacea or Acne Vulgaris | Homeopathy Treatment in Bangalore for Acne Vulgaris

Acne vulgaris and Acne rosaceae are two variants commonly known to be existing. A little similarities and contrast features of these two variants is discussed along with the treatment of  them.

Acne Vulgaris is a skin disease in which the hair follicles are filled with oil (sebum) and skin dead cells. Later, small cysts (comedones) are formed in hair follicles by the accumulation of keratinous material(skin dead cells) and also sebum due to the increase in sebum production by the sebaceous glands after puberty.

The areas of acne vulgaris eruptions are significant. they are distributed on face, upper back and chest.

the comedones in Acne vulgaris are either open or closed. The closed acne(closed comedones) are also called as whitehead and the open acne as blackhead. It should be noted that the acne(commedones) in Acne vulgaris are in the form of reddish papules, pustules and cysts.

Whereas, most of the Acne vulgaris eruptions are mild but a small percentage might develop into large comedones in the form of cysts and nodules. Upon teasing, these get drained and even cause scarring of the skin. The scarring could be temporary and transient but in some cases, severe scarring may become permanent and obvious in appearance.

Acne Vulgaris is disease primarily of teenagers and young adults, although in some adults it may continue to form.

Acne rosacea

Acne rosacea is a variant of acne affecting the central face. The acne of Acne vulgaris appear reddish, with spider-web like appearance of veins called as telangiectasia. The acne are in the form of papules and pustules.

Acne rosacea have the distribution of acne on the blush areas of cheeks, the nose , the forehead and the chin which justifies their appearance primarily on the central face.

The characteristic reddish appearance of the facial skin in patients with Acne rosacea is due to the increased blood supply in response to heat, alcohol, spicy foods and emotional stimuli. It might so happen that with the progress of the disease, the redness of the skin may become permanent.

Acne Rosacea if left untreated or ignored may lead to rhinophyma, a connective tissue overgrowth. Rosacea can also lead to eye complications such as keratitis(inflammation of the cornea), blepharitis(inflammation of the eyelids) , iritis(inflammation of the ring around the pupil) and recurrent chalazion(cyst in eyelid).

Acne Rosacea is seen exclusively in adults, being more common in women than men.Rosacea do not have comedones as in Acne Vulgaris.

It should be a regular exercise of the patients with Acne that they should take care of their facial skin intelligently and prevent themselves from exposing facial skin to chemicals in the form of make-up etc Once , the acne appear, they should be managed carefully by keeping the acne-affected areas clean.

Most importantly, the acne affected areas should not be rubbed vigorously to avoid rupture of the comedones which threaten scarring.

Treatment for Acne vulgaris and Acne rosacea

The treatment for acne should be attempted with a visit to a nearby doctor rather than trying over-the-counter drugs. Since, majority of the cases of acne are seen in adolescents, they either neglect taking treatment for acne or they try their own methods to get rid of acne.

Homeopathy Treatment For Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis: Symptoms, & Causes,What is the Best Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis?

What is Ankylosing Spondylitis? Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is one of the Autoimmune inflammatory diseases of the spine . This spinal arthritis disease causes primary  affections to the axial selection such as skull bones, spine vertebrae and the rib cage among others which constitute 80 different type of bones. The joints in patients with AS become stiff and turn immobile due to the fusion of bones. It is an inflammatory type of arthritis causing swelling and pain.

What causes Ankylosing spondylitis?

AS is considered to be an autoimmune disease of inflammatory nature. Autoimmune mechanism is the faulty reaction of immune system in which the body acts against its own cells. No other exact cause is found to be behind the development of AS in otherwise active people.

Who are the prone to AS condition?

Ankylosing spondylitis is very characteristically found to be present in Young adults who are in their 20’s and 30’s . And,  It is found in 3:1 ratio in male and female prevalence.

What changes happen due to AS?

Because of the faulty reaction of the immune system, autoimmunity which is called, the outer annular fibres are eroded. These eroded annular fibres are then  replaced by bone tissue ultimately bridging the vertebral bodies.This process ascends upwards in the spine leading to the “bamboo spine.” Therefore, due to autoimmunity , the faulty mechanism of bone tissue replacing annular fibres is the hallmark of the changes due to Ankylosing spondylitis.

Also it is noticed that the patients with AS has diffuse osteoporosis (the bones become weak and brittle )

What are the characteristics of Ankylosing spondylitis?

The signs and symptoms of Ankylosing spondylitis varies from individual to individual but AS is a progressive disease. The symptoms range from mild stiffness to total stiff spine and from a normal x-ray to severe changes in the radiographs.

The variations in the progress of AS can be put as follows ;

  1. Dull pain is felt in the lower gluteal region or lumbar region. Pain develops gradually.
  2. Morning stiffness for upto few hours in the low back region. It improves with activity and again returns when inactive.
  3. The pain later becomes constant and on both the sides.
  4. Pain is more during nights forcing the patient to wake up and move around as activity relieves it.
  5. There will also be severe hip joint pain or a bony chest pain with which the patient visits the Doctor.
  6. Limitation of spine mobility particularly the lumbar spine and chest expansion is also limited.
  7. Pain expressed on direct pressure on the joints.

Why is AS considered a serious disease?

Ankylosing spondylitis  if not treated or wrongly treated could lead to fracture of the spine even with minor trauma or fracture can also be a possibility because of hard, osteoporotic spine. Most often, the fracture of lower neck spine is involved. The fracture can cause spinal cord injury.

The effect of autoimmune mechanism in AS can be on the annular fibres of eyes as is evident by the fact that ,upto 40% of patients complain of eye affections, in the form of uveitis, causing pain, sensitivity to light and lachrymation(watering from the eyes).

The other complications of AS could be kyphosis, heart disease(Aortic regurgitation).

What is the best treatment for Ankylosing spondylitis?

As is understood that AS is an autoimmune disease affecting parts other than bones of the axial skeleton. Any autoimmune mechanism is a faulty response seein in selected or minority of the population. The reasons for autoimmunity and the triggering factors for the faulty mechanism have to be ascertained in order treat AS. Since, the individual patients susceptibility and pronation to the the autoimmunity is to be considered, it is called as constitution method of treatment.

Homeopathy Treatment For Ankylosing Spondylitis – Dr T Kiran Kumar

Homeopathy is a medical science which completely establishes itself in the constitutional mode of treatment in all the chronic diseases including AS. Positive Homeopathy doctors are experienced in  deriving the constitution of the patients with AS for an effective and permanent cure. A constitution is a sum total of physical make-up of the patient, previous history, life-span investigations, the diet, the mind, etc. Since homeopathic medicines are proven on human beings and not on animals, the constitution of the those on whom proving is done is also notified in the homeopathic pharmacopoeia.

Positive Homeopathy Clinics have the reputation of providing best Homeopathy Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis and other autoimmune diseases and also diseases of joints, spine and bones.

Homeopathy Treatment for Arthritis

Arthritis Causes, Diagnosis – What is the Best Treatment for Arthritis?

What is Arthritis? Any pain in joints and bones need to be evaluated by the symptoms, physical examination and diagnostic techniques if required. There are different types of bones and joints in the body with different functionality and hence all the diseases of joints and bones do not have similar symptoms. The function of bones and joints is to give protection, provide structure, give strength, enable movement etc.

Homeopathy Treatment For Joint Pains | Positive Homeopathy

Whenever a patient with pain in joints visits a homeopathic doctor, the history of the patient is given importance with regards to the nature of pain, stiffness etc. Here are ways by which a homeopathic doctor assesses the patient with joint pains to reach to final diagnosis.

The history of the pain in bones and joints is known by the following questions: whether it is a joint pain? Whether it is acute or chronic? And if it is joint pain, how many joints involved? Is inflammation present?

Homeopathy Treatment for Arthritis |   Dr. Kiran Kumar

Once it is known that it is not a joint pain, the disease is classified under Trauma or Fracture, Firomyalgia, Polymyalgia, Bursitis and Tendinitis. This exercise helps the homeopathic doctor to elicit the sphere of action to match with the homeopathic remedy to be prescribed which brings about immediate relief to the patients.

Or, if it is known that pains are due to involvement of joints, articular pains, it becomes important to know the duration of pain. If the pain is from less than 6 weeks it is classified as Acute articular pain and if since more than 6 weeks, Chronic articular pain. This is important to know because in homeopathy the philosophy of acute and chronic diseases stand tall and there are remedies selected based on the duration of sickness. This is another aspect of homeopathy which makes homeopathy the best treatment method for arthritis and diseases of bones and joints.

Treatment for Arthritis in Homeopathy | 25+ Clinics & 100+ experienced Doctors  

Some of the Acute articular diseases are Acute arthritis, Infectious arthritis, Gout, Pseudogout, Reactive arthritis. All these acute kind of arthritis have permanent and fast relief with homeopathic medicines.

Furthermore, the homeopathic doctor would like to know whether the chronic pains due to joints involvement(articular) is inflammatory or noninflammatory. Such a step-wise elicitation and evaluation leads the homeopathic doctor to the correct diagnosis and also helps in drug selection for instant cure. Therefore, the patients are supposed to give entire history which may be a time-taking procedure but for the betterment. The chronic noninflammatory joint pains can be due to Osteoarthritis(if knee joints or hip, distal finger joints are involved) or Osteonecrosis and Charcot arthritis.

Chronic inflammatory arthritis  is further probed by the homeopathic physician to know the number of joints involved. The diseases  which fall under chronic inflammatory arthritis involving one to three joints are termed as monoarthritis / oligoarthritis. Such diseases are Psoriatic arthritis, Reactive arthritis, Pauciarticular JIA.

For the category of chronic inflammatory arthritis involving more than 3 joints, it is imperative to know whether there is symmetry in the affection of joints. If there is no symmetry seen, Psoriatic arthritis and Reactive arthritis may be considered. But if there is symmetry prominently noticed, Rheumatoid arthritis, Systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE), Scleroderma, Polymyositis are identified by the doctor.

By now, it will be obvious to the homeopathic doctor the probable diagnosis. He/She may send for further diagnostic techniques if required based on the history and physical examinations.

Therefore, it has to be understood by the patients with arthritis that a thorough history is required from them by the doctor in addition to the initial co-operation in the examination procedures. Such an extensive and elaborative method of assessing a patient with joint pains is essential to the homeopath for early diagnosis and screening. In addition to the nature of the arthritis disease the patient may be suffering from, a homeopathic doctor further continues the second part of consultation to know the constitution of the patient with arthritis.

A constitution is the physical make-up of the patient, the dietary habits, the thermals, the previous history, the emotional characteristics, the social life , life-span investigations along with the mind thought process which is individualistic. Such a complete case-taking enables a homeopathic doctor to bring about complete cure from arthritis in majority of the times barring few  cases. Therefore, homeopathy is considered to be a complete science covering the disease characteristics and diseased person’s individuality to ensure the health is restored. All these values make homeopathy as the best treatment method for arthritis conditions.

Psoriasis Treatment, Causes, Symptoms, Types & Risk Factors

What is Psoriasis ?
Psoriasis is a common chronic skin disease which is seen as patches which are silvery-white on reddish inflammatory skin. These silvery scales are the dead skin cells which fall off on its own or on scratching. Psoriasis is pronounced as ‘soriasis’ and it is noticed on the extensor areas of the joints such as outside of elbows and knees, on bony surfaces, and followed by spread to other parts of the body.

Psoriasis is a disease which is seen everywhere in the world.

What causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is supposed to be an autoimmune disease with its impression majorly on the skin. Autoimmunity in patients with Psoriasis causes the body defence to act against its own normal mechanism and as a result there is improper immune reaction which leads to rapid growth and death of skin cells represented in the form of silvery-white skin flakes.

Other that autoimmune mechanism, Psoriasis is observed to be caused due to genetic and hereditary factors but the exact cause is yet to be known to the medical science.

It is to be noticed that Psoriasis is triggered in compromised autoimmune patients by factors such as anxiety, mental trauma, fevers, physical injury etc.

What are the symptoms of Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is easily identifiable by the presence of silvery white scales which are dry and fall off . They are well-defined eruptions over the reddish base of the skin raised above the surface of the skin.
As such, psoriasis does not cause itching but some patients complain of itching whenever there is mental stress and lichenification.

There are certain features unique to Psoriasis eruptions such as :

Candle-grease sign (Tache de bouge) : On scratching the psoriatic eruption with a pointed tool, a candle-grease-like scale is seen.

Auspitz sign : On complete removal of psoriatic scale, a pinpoint bleeding is produced which is called as Auspitz sign.
Koebner’s phenomenon : When scratched during the active phase of Psoriasis, lesions may develop along the scratch lines which is called famously as Koebner’s phenomenon.

What are the areas affected in Psoriasis?

Typically, Psoriasis is distributed on the extensor surfaces such as the back of elbows, front of knees, the lower part of the back of the trunk, etc. The scalp is involved in almost all the types of Psoriasis. The nails, the palms, and the soles may also get affected. Very rarely, mucous membranes may get involved.

What are the types of Psoriasis ?

There are many types of Psoriasis and prominent among them are 5 major types :

Plaque Psoriasis:
It is one of the most common types of Psoriasis which affects the skin areas of back of elbows, front of knees , scalp and low back in the form of dry , red raised eruptions with silvery-white scales in broad areas.

Guttate Psoriasis:

Another common type of Psoriasis see mostly in young adults and children. Psoriatic patches appear on the arms, legs and trunk.

Inverse Psoriasis:
This type of Psoriasis can be seen in the armpits, in the groin, under the breasts in skin-folds of other areas such as genitals and buttocks. Psoriasis appears as bright-red, shiny and smooth.

Pustular Psoriasis:

Though Pustular Psoriasis is a type which is rarely seen but it is worth mentioning due to the severity of the disease. It is mostly seen in adults as pustules located in palms and soles and even sometimes covers major parts of the body.

Erythrodermic Psoriasis:

This type of Psoriasis appears as reddish with scales in thin sheets. Erythrodermic Psoriasis affects larger surfaces of the body and it more inflammatory in nature rather than keratinized.

What are the complications of Psoriasis?

Any disease when left untreated or undiagnosed can change its course and start affecting in different ways which are called as complications. Psoriasis is a very disturbing disease socially and emotionally. There is sudden remission and intermission which puzzles the patients with Psoriasis. Most of the times, Psoriasis complicates into arthritis causing joint pains and stiffness known as Psoriatic Arthritis.
In some patients, Psoriasis intermingles with eczema and more exfoliation ensues causing severe itching and even infection upon scratching.

What is the treatment for Psoriasis ?

The treatment of Psoriasis is not found in conventional medicine or modern medicine and the patients with Psoriasis are subjected to different levels of disappointments after they consult many doctors. In such a scenario, it is to be noted that homeopathy has specific effective medicines for Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis which completely cures Psoriasis and also prevents recurrence.

The patients with Psoriasis should follow the instructions of homeopathic doctor with regards to long-term duration of treatment required for complete cure of Psoriasis. They should follow the diet and regimen specified by the homeopathic physician for the speedy recovery and control of Psoriasis.

Homeopathy Treatment For Psoriasis By Dr. T Kiran Kumar:

Homeopathic medicines do not cause side-effects, they are safe-to-use, they are non-toxic and non-addictive. It is also worth mentioning that homeopathic treatment can be taken from the comfort of home or office and the need of hospitalisation does not arise even when there is severe Psoriatic Arthritis.

Thus, it can be said that homeopathic treatment is the best treatment for Psoriasis and a boon for the patients with Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis.
