Kidney Stones and benefits with Homeopathic Treatment

Kidney Stones and benefits with Homeopathic Treatment
Kidney stones cause excruciating pain! Homeopathic remedies for Kidney stones have proven effective time and again.
Let us discuss about Kidney stones, their causes and how homeopathy medicine for kidney stones can help to flush them out!

What are kidney stones?
When urine carries any crystal forming substances such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid, kidney stones are formed. At the same time, urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.

Other rare varieties of kidney stones include those made up of Cystine, Struvite (magnesium, ammonium and phosphate), calcium phosphate or uric acid. Kidney stones are considered one of the most painful urologic disorders.

Types:
• Calcium stones: Majority of the kidney stones are calcium stones in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in most foods. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels.
• Struvite stones: Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection.
• Uric acid stones: Uric acid stones can form in people who don’t drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout.
• Cystine stones: These stones form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids.

Symptoms:
• Severe pain in the side and back, below the ribs
• Pain that spreads to the lower abdomen and groin
• Pain during urination
• Pink, red or brown urine
• Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
• Nausea and vomiting
• Persistent need to urinate
• Urinating more often than usual
Some home remedies to help soothe the discomfort of kidney stones:
1. Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, and Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
• Mix 2 spoons of organic olive oil with 2 spoons of lemon juice and drink it up! Then drink a glass of water immediately.
• Wait for 30 mins and repeat it!
• Repeat the lemon juice, water and apple cider vinegar recipe every hour until symptoms improve.
2. Uva Ursi
Uva Ursi is a common folk remedy for kidney stones. Not only will it help fight off infection in the kidneys, but it may also help reduce pain and cleanse the urinary tract. 500mg three times a day is recommended for kidney stones.
3. Kidney Beans
Remove the beans from inside the pods, and then boil the pods in purified hot water for six hours. This liquid can be strained through cheese cloth, cooled and taken throughout the day for one day to ease kidney stone pain.
4. Horsetail
Horsetail tea is an effective natural remedy for kidney stones. Drink up to 3-4 cups of horsetail tea daily or 2 grams of the herb in capsule form daily.
5. Pomegranate Juice
The seeds and juice of pomegranates is considered another natural remedy for kidney stones. This may be related to their sourness and astringent properties
6. Organic Celery
Celery in vegetable form and celery seed are great urine-promoters and kidney tonics. Regular use of celery seed, as a spice or as a tea, may prevent kidney stone formation.
7. Change in Diet
Unhealthy food intake is a primary cause of kidney stones. Cut down on the amount energy drinks and avoid processed foods and alcoholic beverages.

Physiological illness is a deterrent for the patient and the family around him or her!

It has become one of the major health concerns today. The term Schizophrenia has come into use only recently, in olden days, the people suffering from this illness were considered possessed and were tortured.

Schizophrenia is caused due to imbalances of chemicals in the brain which leads to messages in the brain to mix up and cause havoc. People with Schizophrenia are split up from reality and cannot differentiate between reality and hallucinations

Individuals with schizophrenia think they are hearing things and believe someone is out to harm them!

People with schizophrenia may just sit for hours thinking and not moving and sometimes they talk to themselves about inane things. You cannot predict Schizophrenia, it appears without warning. Patients can cause harm to themselves or people around them.

Symptoms of schizophrenia:

  •  Genital herpes in pregnant women
  • Child abuse – physical, emotional and sexual.
  • Stressful life events.

There are five types of Schizophrenia:

  • Paranoid Schizophrenic – These patients are sceptical and think everyone is plotting against them.
  • Disorganized Schizophrenic – These individuals are restless, emotionless, verbally illogical and absurd.
  • Catatonic Schizophrenic – These individuals are very pessimistic, secluded and present abnormal behaviour.
  • Undifferentiated Schizophrenic – These individuals exhibit psychotic signs with absolute loss of contact with reality.
  • Residual Schizophrenic – These individuals do not hallucinate, but are suicidal with no interest in life.

 

Homeopathic remedies for schizophrenia!

The following are the homeopathic medicines:

  • Veratrum Album: Tired of life, but fear of dying
  • Cannabis Indica: Delirium tremendous, trembling, hallucinations, tendency to become furious, nausea.
  • Platinum Metallicum:  The delusion of the senses, feeling as of being too large and on the contrary, all other things and persons seem to be too small and too low.
  • Hyoscyamus: Delirium without consciousness does not know anybody.
  • Thuja: As if a strange person were at his side as if the soul were separated from the body; as if the body especially the limbs were of glass and would break easily, as if a living animal were in the abdomen. Getting orders from dead souls, think someone controlling his mind.

Insomnia? Get a good night’s sleep with Homeopathy

Sleep is as important as food for any person.  It helps our body recover from the day’s activities and enhances memory and brain function. Without sleep, we will go crazy! Sleep is a natural process but sadly for some, it is not the case. Insomnia is a sleeping disorder; causes can be anything ranging from prescribed medications interfering with the body’s sleep cycle, emotional stress or food. Homeopathic medicine helps to overcome insomnia and leads to a good nights’ sleep.

You can also overcome insomnia by making some changes in your lifestyle:

  • Exercise regularly.
  • Lose weight
  • Have a health check
  • Balance menopausal hormones
  • Include healthy diet
  •  Avoid caffeine products
  • Eat food with protein few hours before bed time
  • Avoid alcohol
  •  Chamomile tea has a mild homeopathic effect of relieving anxiety and inducing relaxation
  • Avoid watching TV before going to sleep
  • Go to bed at the same time each night. And get up at the same time each morning, too, even on weekends. Your body clock will synchronise with these times making it easier to go to sleep as well as wake up in the morning.
  • Take a hot bath or shower before bed. This will increase the temperature of your body. The fall in temperature as it returns to normal will encourage relaxation and help with sleep.
  • Use the homeopathic effect of coffee. In homeopathy’s ‘like treats like’ approach, coffee will paradoxically help some people sleep better as it will calm their busy mind and body if drunk before going to bed

Homeopathic treatment for Insomnia

Homeopathy has been effective for treating insomnia. If insomnia is the only symptom, one of the following remedies may bring relief.

Arsenicum Album (Ars)

This is for people who are anxious and restless. Anxiety, fear, or worry prevents sleep. Frequent starting or jumping which wakens from sleep.

Coffea Cruda (Coff)

Coffee is usually known for aggravating sleeplessness but because of homeopathy’s ‘like treats like’ effect, it will relieve insomnia when given in crude, or especially homeopathic form. The type of symptoms it relieves are those produced by coffee. They are: sleeplessness from rapid thoughts or an active mind; constant flow of ideas; physical restlessness; nervous energy; excitement.

Gelsemium Sempervirens (Gels)

For people who suffer sleeplessness from anticipatory anxiety. Dull, drowsy mind or insomnia due to over exhaustion.

These are just a few remedies which Positive Homeopathy clinic offers, depending on the symptoms and lifestyle of the patients the doctor might suggest suitable homeopathic medicines.
