How Does Homeopathy Improve your Immunity?

How often have we not heard the phrase from our elders or those around us, “improve your resistance, you get sick often?” Simply put immunity means exemption, resistance, protection from etc…

We are living in an atmosphere replete with microbes also called pathogens day in and out.  Immunity refers to the defense mechanism of the body in fighting off these disease-causing pathogens and keeping you healthy in the process.  Pathogens can enter your body through air, food and/or break in the skin.

A strong immune system helps keep many diseases at bay.  We have some amount of bacteria and viruses in our body vital to its functioning.  Every moment, our body actively flushes out toxins.  When this task becomes overbearing, we become sick.

If having a weak immunity system is not precarious enough, having an overactive immune system can turn fatal.  Autoimmune disorders, is a condition where the immune system of the body attacks the healthy cells of the body increasing vulnerability to infections and damage to various organs of the body.

Homeopathy is a therapeutic treatment that works by stimulating the body’s own immune and defense system instead of just working on the symptoms per se.  This mode of treatment may take a slow course, but reaps long term benefits.

Comparatively less dosages of medicine in homeopathy are required to treat a disease than its counterparts and the whole process of treatment is safe and holistic.

It was discovered by Louis Pasteur that a compromised immunity system plays a larger role in the development of disease than germs and other infections themselves.

Other forms of medicine essentially focus on treating the symptoms, prescription of antibiotics to fight the germs.  This helps in temporary relief only and the issue can resurface at any time again.

A study that appeared in the European Journal of Pharmacology elaborated about how a homeopathic medicine, Silicea, stimulated a part of the body’s immune system called microphages which overwhelm bacteria and foreign substances.

Homeopathic medicines also perform the function of calming the immune system when it is overactive as in the case of autoimmune disorders. Homeopathic medicines for toning down the immune system or strengthening the immune system are better referred to as immunomodulatory drugs.

Although it is not possible to zero in on a single homeopathic drug for immunity issues at all times, below are some of the common homeopathic drugs that can be used:

  • Natel Neutratec Anbuta Plus drops
  • Grippe D30, D60, D200
  • Scwabe Alpha WD Immuno Stimulator
  • Blooume 20 Immunoforce drops

A brief review on why homeopathy is the preferred choice for immunity-related problems:

  • Homeopathy is suitable for people of all age groups.
  • Control of secondary infections caused by weakened immunity system.
  • It strengthens the body’s immune system instead of just fighting the infection.
  • More palatable compared to other conventional medicines.
  • Systemic detoxification of the whole body leading to much more beneficial results in shorter time.
  • Drugs can be customized according to individual needs.

Homeopathy for AIDS Management

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, life threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV damages the human immune system and disables it from fighting infections caused by pathogens. There is no cure for HIV/AIDS, but medications can slow down its progression. Though these drugs have reduced deaths due to AIDS in developing nations, yet HIV/AIDS still kills populations in Africa, Haiti and parts of Asia.

HIV spreads by the transfer of body fluids from the infected to uninfected. These transfers can occur during sex, blood transfusions, sharing of needles, pregnancy or breastfeeding. It can take years before HIV damage of the immune system can lead to fully blown AIDS.

Symptoms:

The symptoms vary depending on the phase of the infection in the person.

Primary Infection:

Most HIV infected people develop flu like illness within a month or two after the virus enters the body. This is called primary or acute HIV infection and may last for weeks. Symptoms and signs include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Rash
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph glands, mainly in the neck

Though the symptoms may be mild during this phase of HIV infection, the amount of virus present in the bloodstream (viral load) is very high. Therefore, HIV infections spread greatly during the primary stage than any other stage of infection.

Chronic HIV:

This stage lasts for about 10 years for those not on antiretroviral therapies. It can last for decades in people who are on antiretroviral drugs. Except for persistent swelling of the lymph glands in the neck, there are no specific signs or symptoms during this phase of infection.

Progression to AIDS:

In the absence of any treatment for the HIV infection, the disease progresses to full blown AIDS in about 10 years. At this stage, the body’s immune system is fully damaged making one vulnerable to opportunistic infections – diseases that wouldn’t bother a person with a healthy immune system. The signs and symptoms of some of these infections include:

  • Soaking night sweats
  • Recurring fever
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Lesions on tongue or in mouth
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Skin rashes or bumps

AIDS Management

Since there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, a variety of drugs are used in combination to control the virus. The treatment regimen includes taking multiple pills at specific times for the rest of the patient’s life resulting in side effects.

Homeopathy for AIDS Management

The horror of the AIDS epidemic woke up the medical and general public to the importance of the body’s immune system. The medical community is all focused on inhibiting the virus rather than increasing the immune response to the viral threat. By strengthening the immune system, the body is best able to defend itself.

Homeopathy has an impressive history of success in treating infectious diseases, including potentially fatal diseases known to mankind. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed based on a person’s unique pattern of symptoms and a conventional diagnosis is not necessary to prescribe a curative homeopathic remedy. Homeopathic medicines don’t have traditional antiviral effects, but immunomodulatory effects. This refers to the tonification of the body’s immune system – to augment immune responses when need be or depress an already over stimulated immune system. Implemented accurately, homeopathy can extract a profound healing response and can be extremely effective in treating acute as well as chronic long term health problems including HIV/AIDS.

Homeopathy in Hyderabad has come a long way in treating varying stages of HIV AIDS with considerable success. The best homeopathic doctors in Hyderabad can be found at almost all homeopathy clinics specializing in treating both, acute and chronic diseases. With a multitude of best homeopathic clinics, hospitals in Hyderabad, management of AIDS is as simple as picking a phone and scheduling an appointment. For best homeopathy in Hyderabad visit an expert who treats specific conditions.

Emotional Wellness and Homeopathy

Our psychological health impacts our life as much as our physical health does; sometimes even more. Yet, the most we do is note our general mood and leave it there. We do nothing to bring it back into equilibrium. Now compare that to how we take care of bruises, cuts and colds which receive immediate attention and care. Seriously our emotional health is kept on the backburner while life carries on.

Emotional wellness is the ability to arrive at personal choices based on the synthesis of feelings, thoughts and behaviors. To live and work independently while acknowledging the support and assistance of others, form relationships with others based on mutual trust and respect, take on risks and accept conflict as something healthy, manage life in personally rewarding ways and take responsibility for your actions. To be aware of accept our feelings rather than denying them and to have an optimistic view of life and enjoy it despite frustrations and downturns is an essential element of emotional wellness.

What trips emotional wellness

You’ve areas to improve, if you’ve answered no to any of these following questions

  • Are you able to balance work, family, and friends?
  • Do you have ways to reduce stress in your life?
  • Are you able to make decisions with minimum stress and worry?
  • Are you able to set priorities?

The path to emotional wellness

  • Being aware of your thoughts and your feelings and reigning over them rather than being tossed around by them
  • Maintaining a positive outlook on life
  • Seeking support when required and expressing your emotions suitably
  • Setting priorities and honoring them
  • Accepting mistakes and learning from them

To achieve emotional wellness with homeopathy one has to consider what energy imbalance means. Allowing normal, natural emotions to run riot can lead to an energy imbalance in the body, upsetting the emotional equilibrium and leading to physical, emotional and mental ailments. Hence, the role of a homeopath is that of a facilitator; one who helps patients restore their own equilibrium, and help them find their balance amidst the chaos.

Homeopathic remedies can help people who want to work on their emotional growth and development. They can help people to achieve a positive mindset and a feeling of well being. Negative moods and personality traits can bring about emotional imbalance and dent emotional wellness.

Homeopathy doesn’t change the personality of the individual rather it helps restore balance within the personality. For example, a chronic worrier can become an occasional worrier, a highly critical judgmental person can become more tolerant, and a person with a poor self image can gain more self confidence.

If you want to achieve harmony and emotional wellness, it is important to first flush out the garbage at the energy level. The next time you’re tempted to ask your health practitioner if your physical condition can be cured, think again. Is there something that you can do by yourself first? Then seek the help of a certified homeopath for assistance.

Homeopathic Remedies for Iodine Deficiency

Iodine, a chemical found in trace amounts in the human body, is known as a key element in the synthesis of thyroid hormones and efficient metabolism. It is obtained primarily through diet, but is also found in some medications. Iodine deficiency is the lack iodine and severe iodine deficiency results in impaired thyroid function or thyroid enlargement (goiter). It ranks as one of the three most common nutritional deficiencies, along with magnesium and vitamin D.

Iodine has four important functions the body:

  • Body weight and metabolism stabilization

  • Fortification of the Immune system

Sources of dietary Iodine

Saltwater fish, seaweed, egg yolks, milk and milk products. Also, iodine is added to water supply or food products meant for humans or domesticated animals.

Causes

Worldwide the soil is deficient in iodine. This may be because of modern industrial agricultural practices and lack of iodine in the soil. Environmental pollutants have robbed the soil of natural iodine levels leading to poor iodine in foods. Fluoridation of water is the major cause of iodine deficiency besides damaging health in many ways. The other reasons for falling iodine levels are:

  • Diet low in fish and shellfish and seaweed
  • Vegan and vegetarian diets
  • Decreased use of iodized salt
  • Less use of iodine in the food and agriculture industry
  • Use of radioactive iodine in many medical procedures, which competes with natural iodine

Symptoms

Iodine deficiency symptoms manifest when thyroid gland doesn’t receive enough iodine. The more serious and severe symptoms vary with individuals, but usually include:

  • Thyroid enlargement (goiter)
  • Depression & anxiety
  • Mental retardation
  • Fetal hypothyroidism
  • Autism
  • Slowed brain function
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Lowered immunity
  • Cysts, soreness & heaviness in breasts
  • Compromised detoxification organ function
  • Impaired thyroid function

Treatment

It is better to obtain iodine from natural food than supplements. Consultation with an endocrinologist is necessary when the cause of thyroid abnormalities is unclear.

Homeopathy Treatment for Dengue

Homeopathic Remedies for Chikungunya and Dengue

Homeopathic Remedies for Chikungunya and Dengue

Chikungunya and dengue are viral diseases spread by mosquito bites. While chikungunya and dengue are transmitted from the aedes aegypti mosquito, recent report from the Pasteur Institute in Paris claims the mosquito mutated and now can also be transmitted by aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito). The name chikungunya is derivative of the Makonde word meaning ‘that which bends up’ with reference to the stooped posture developed resulting from the severe arthritic symptoms of the disease.

Symptoms of Chikungunya

Sudden onset of flu-like symptoms including: severe headache, chills, fever higher than 40°C or 104°F, joint pain, backache, nausea, vomiting, petechial or maculopapular rash usually involving the limbs and trunks. Joints of the extremities in particular become swollen and painful to the touch. Conjunctival infection and slight photophobia, redness of eyes may be the first symptom with perhaps a difficulty in looking upward.

Symptoms of Dengue

Sudden chills with high fever, intense headache, muscle and joint pains which make one immobile. Retro-orbital pain and photophobia develops within 24 hrs of the onset of preliminary symptoms. Other symptoms include: extreme weakness, anorexia, constipation, colicky pain and abdominal tenderness. Some cases fever is typically followed by a remission for 2 hrs to 2 days. The rash may be diffuse flushing, mottling, or fleeting pinpoint eruptions on face, neck and chest during the first half of the infection and a conspicuous rash that may be maculopapular or scarlatiniform on 3rd or 4th day. Fever may last for about 5 days.

 Homeopathic Treatment

Pertinent individual treatment is the heart of homeopathy. Rather than administering medicines geared toward the disease, homeopathic treatment targets the disease based on symptoms which vary from person to person and also to the degree they are present. That is one reason why it is near impossible to develop any random controlled trails in homeopathy. But, over the years, experience has taught the homeopaths that in cases of acute epidemics – the symptoms are essentially same and so can be treated with one remedy or few key remedies.

The best prophylactic remedy is to find the Genus Epidemicus’ of the area of the outbreak. And a homeopathic remedy such as this is not an individual constitutional remedy, but a general one that fits the highest number of symptoms of the affected group. Though the remedy is not individual specific it is still different from the conventional allopathic medicine as the cure is from the inside out – addresses the cause, rather than outside in – suppressing the symptoms.

 Calcarea carbonica as a genus epidemicus is an effective remedy which can be used to treat chikungunya and one of the best prophylactic remedy to treat it is bryonia alba. Tabacum is a prominent remedy identified to treat dengue by studying several atypical symptoms of dengue – vertigo when opening the eyes, incessant nausea, anxious conscience, desire for constant fanning, body coldness etc.

When the availability of treatment during viral epidemics is meager, costly or not known, homeopathic medicines as genus epidemicus can be used as prophylactic remedies or remedies to treat the incidence of chikungunya and dengue.
