Imagine a life where you are constantly depended on someone for every little need! Tough, isn’t it?
Muscular Dystrophy is a condition which leads to such life for many, overcome this extremity with Positive Homeopathy!
Most common form of muscular dystrophy found in young boys and sometimes in adults is Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Currently, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy, but certain homeopathic medicines can improve symptoms and slow down the disease’s progression.
Muscular dystrophy causes gradual weakening of the skeletal muscle!
Muscular dystrophy gets worse over time, and some people may lose the ability to walk, talk, or care for themselves. It is not the case for every patient; some do lead a normal life with minimal symptoms.
There are more than 30 kinds of muscular dystrophy and each is different based on:
• The genes that cause it
• The muscles it affects
• The age when symptoms first appear
• How quickly the disease gets worse
Muscular dystrophy is a muscle-wasting disease that affects roughly 1 in 35,000 males. The condition is caused by genetic mutations that interfere with the production of muscle proteins necessary to build and maintain healthy muscles.
Common forms of muscular dystrophy are:
Duchenne muscular dystrophy: the most common form of the illness! Symptoms normally start before a child’s third birthday; they are generally wheelchair-bound by 12 and die of respiratory failure by their early-to-mid-twenties
Becker muscular dystrophy: Symptoms similar to Duchenne but with a later onset and slower progression.
Myotonic (Steinert’s disease): The myotonic form is the most common adult-onset form. It is characterized by an inability to relax a muscle once it has contracted.
Congenital: this variant can be obvious from birth or before the age of 2. It affects girls and boys. Some forms progress slowly whereas others can move swiftly and cause significant impairment
Limb-girdle: this variant begins in childhood or teenage years and first affects the shoulder and hip muscles. Individuals with the limb-girdle muscular dystrophy might have trouble raising the front part of the foot, making tripping a common problem
Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy: onset is between the ages of 40 and 70. Eyelids, throat and face are first affected, followed by the shoulder and pelvis.
Symptoms for most forms of muscular dystrophy start to show in childhood or in adolescence. Most common symptoms are:
• Fall down often
• Have weak muscles
• Have regular muscle cramps
• Have trouble getting up, climbing stairs, running, or jumping
• Walk on their toes or waddle
Some will also have symptoms like:
• A curved spine
• Droopy eyelids
• Heart problems
• Weakness in the muscles of the face
Inability to walk
A shortening of muscles and tendons, further limiting movement
Breathing problems can become so severe that assisted breathing is necessary
Curvature of the spine can be caused if muscles are not strong enough to support its structure
Homeopathic treatment for Muscular Dystrophy
Homeopathic treatment aims to slow down the process of muscular degeneration, and can work on bringing some symptomatic relief, such as improving muscle power.
After a detailed study of the physical, emotional and genetic makeup of the patient, the Homeopathic medicines are prescribed by the experts. They help to reduce the weakness in muscles and decrease the pace at which the disease is growing. Some specific Homeopathic remedies help for muscle paralysis and have been found effective in the treatment of Muscular Dystrophy.
Homeopathy improves the way of life!
