Homoeopathic Arthritis Management

Homoeopathic Arthritis Management

Homoeopathic Arthritis Management depends on individualisation of the patient based on present symptoms, past history, family history and constitution of the patient.

In arthritis cases it is necessary to take into account the following points (with constant search for underlying miasm and constitution type):

  • When it started, that is since how long its been there.
  • How was the onset when it appeared first time.
  • Wether the complaints had incidious progression or it was sudden.
  • Which joint is involved, wether its single joint or multiple, wether its bilateral and symetrical or diagonal.
  • Particulars like which part was affected first, which side it started first and how much time it took for progression to other side or other joints, sequence in which joints were involved.
  • How and when it gets triggered, aggravation pattern morning stiffness , aggravation on rest/ motion, relation to climate winter/monsoon/summer, relation to heat and cold, aggravation to any particular type of food.
  • Wether its constant or intermittant.
  • The joint is warmer than rest of the body or not.
  • Wether there is swelling around the joint or not.
  • Nodes or nodosities on or around any joints. or any other signs of disfigurement.
  • Movement or other disability in joint.
  • Patient has fever or not or h/o fever before or during the episode of joint pain started.
  • Presence of any concomittants or accompanying symptoms and wether those symptoms are of Psychotic, Syphilitic or Psoric nature.
  • Wether he has any other systemic complaint especially any other autoimmune or metabolic disorder.
  • History of injury, surgery especially affecting neurons or musculoskeletal structure.
  • Nature of work the patient does , postural habits, structural anomalies disfigurements.
  • Diet sleep and exercise routine water intake should also be noted carefully.
  • It is important to note family history of patient wether first degree relative had any autoimmune or metabolic disorder.
  • Wether patient was or is under any long term medication.

A careful history of all communicable ailments should be recorded in sequence as they had been contracted by patient, as it helps us evaluate when and how was the vital force deranged in past and wether the present condition is manifestation of some past ailment, that is any deep seated miasm, also it helps to establish wether its some inherited genetic condition or its acquired condition also it helps differentiate  between

  1. Vector borne conditions like post viral arthralgia/arthritis  and Group A streptococcal borne post pharyngitis systemic autoimmune condition AND
  2. Other Systemic autoimmune conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis SLE psoriatic arthritis.

These basic question will lead you towards a broader vision in the case and will let you reach upto some conclusion that under what category of arthritis it should be classified and will lead you towards some understanding of miasm and constitution.

As I have mentioned in my other arthritis articles that basically I divide all types of arthritis into four major categories based on their pathogenesis.

  1. Mechanical
  2. Immunological
  3. Metabolic
  4. Septic

After being diagnosed and classified the disease condition from one of the above group we can go further on how to manage each type of case.

Immunologically mediated

Once established that its an immune mediated arthritis its necessary to rule out any damage to other organs like heart, liver, kidney, pancreas, eyes etc, as in most cases autoimmune arthritis is found to involve other system and organs or it is a part of broader systemic autoimmune condition and it is all the more necessary to find out miasmatic background, constitution and individualising symptoms, as such types of arthritis are deep seated having its own sets of aggravating and ammeliorating factors, furthermore its also observed that mental stress and emotional fluctuations have much impact on intensity and frequency of aggravations in almost all types of immunologically mediated arthritis, so its of utmost importance to take proper account of patient’s mental emotional past and present including likes and dislikes aversion and cravings, which helps us to individualise the case.

Once the we have derived constitution , miasmatic background and individuslised the case then comes medicine selection process,

I strongly recomend to go by constitution of patient in immunologically mediated arthritis rather than going theraputic remedy selection.

It should be kept in mind that the selection procedure of medicine should correspond to degree of mental PQRS , degree of systemic PQRS and degree of musculo-skelatal symptoms of the person in disease should match the degree of pathogenic action on various sphere of the specific medicine.

Though during acute exacerbations of disease it becomes necessary many a times to administer short acting acute medicines theraputically where the new symptoms desnt fall into sphere of the constitutional medicine thats been administered.

Many a times only a single dose of similimum medicine selected may suffice to cure the case  but all patients are not the same each has a different constitution and miasmatic background and severity of ailment and other  external inimical factors, so in many cases it may take series of medicines one by one as per case demands during progression of treatment before the case is cured. It all depends upon how well the physician is able to find out the similimum and type of case and its requirement.

Mechanical

Under mechanical type of arthritis falls osteoarthritis and other types of arthritis caused due to mechanical injuries in such types the case is usually tale tale and shows basic picture of mechanical wear n tear which might be due to poor constitution inherited or might be acquired later on due to external inimical reasons.

In such cases it is necessary to consider that basically the constitution is lacking the capability to repair regenerate and maintain proper quality of joint cartilage and underlying bone and has tendency towards chronic sub-acute inflamation. in such cases it is important to take complete history of patient and family with details of gestational period and individulisation based on Peculiars should be derived forindividualised  remedy selection for complete annihilation of condition;  if not done so the patient might find relief for time being but the symptoms might keep relapsing with time again and again.

In many cases the repair and regeneration mechanisms are sufficient but mechanical wear and tear are in greater proportion and on regular basis so damage tends to accumulate, in such cases there is not much need to go deep into deriving constitution and treatment approach should aim towards elimination of maintaining cause that is excessive mechanical wear and tear and suppliment with nutritious diet and rest to affected part and symptomatic homoeopathic medicines based on theraputics will also work well.

Metabolic

Again this type of arthritis is a deep seated genetic in nature and they might accompany other metabolic syndromes and requires a careful case taking to get a broader picture of the person in disease, all aother systems and organs should be evaluated to understand sphere of disease pathology its extent and severity so it helps us to select the most similimum homoeopathic remedy.

The approach in such cases again remains constitutional , miasmatic and remedy should be selected only after proper individualisation of case and repertorisation.

Septic

In septic arthritis pt needs to be administered short acting acute remedies theraputically with support of deep acting constitutional remedy which can be administered intermittently or after the acute symptoms are ammeliorated to rearrange the deranged vital force.

Commonly Used Homoeopathic Medicines for Arthritis and its symptoms and indications:

HORMESIS – HOMOEOPATHY – Old Wine in New Bottle

“Hormesis is a term used to describe any phenomenon in a cell or the whole organism that exhibits a biphasic response to exposure to increasing amounts of substance or condition”.  from wikipedia.

Within the hermetic zone there is generally a favorable biological response to low exposures to toxins and other stressors. ~from wikipedia

Any substance or condition showing Hormesis thus has the opposite effect in small doses as in large doses.

In toxicology,  hormesis is a dose response phenomenon characterized by a low dose stimulation, high dose inhibition, resulting in either a  J-shaped or an inverted U-shaped dose response. Such environmental factors that would seem to produce positive responses have also been termed “eustress”.  ~ from wikipedia.

This is exactly what homoeopathic principle of similia similibus curenture is. Thus theory of Hormesis proves Homoeopathic Principle of Similia Similibus Curenture.

Non of the single Homoeopathic medicines can be patented and almost all available elements and naturally occuring substances are already mentioned in homoeopathic materia medica and are efficiently used as as per principle of Similia Similibus Curentur or say homoeopathic doctorine of same cures same or say Hormesis or hormetic effect , its one and the same.

The scientific community is outright rejecting similia similibus curentur and accepting the theory of Hormesis, where as its exactly one and the same with two different names.

They say they reject homoeopathy because  homoeopathy uses only high dilution, its their lack of knowledge or misconception or delibrate misrepresentation of facts, they should not forget that homoeopthic system of medicine not only use high dilutes but also uses crude form and various different concentration of substance and we dilute it in various ways and methods to get various degrees of concerntration of the substance, we have various different scales for diluting a substance, and we have various degrees of dilutions straight from crude till very high ultra dilutions.

Wikipedia have misrepresented the fact about Homoeopathy intheir page about Hormesis, that in homoeopathy typically uses high potency. Also the page about homoeopathy terms Homoeopathic principle of same cure same as unscientific now again that contradicts with their article about hormesis where they claim this principle to be scientific.

Homoeopathy uses dilutions in varying degrees as per requirement and symptoms of patient, straight from crude substance to ultra high dilutes.

So to delibrately misrepresent the facts and to systematically demolish almost 400yrs old system of medicine, just to bring up the same principle of Similia Similibus Curenture with new name is nothing but old wine in new bottle and its a malicious act and conspiracy done just to get homoeopathic medicines and its principles patented so that few with wasted interests can make money out of it.

Air Purifying Indoor Plants

AIR PURIFYING INDOOR PLANTS

We cant survive few minutes without Breathing, And the very basic and most essential substance of our survival Air is now not breathable due to air pollution created by population explosion, deforestation, industrialisation and civic development.

Recently in past decade with global surge in pollution levels as much as 20-40 times beyond acceptable limits; for certain extremely toxic pollutants in most cities; with Delhi as worlds most polluted megacity , with visibility not more than few feets, this is not only causing road accident pile-ups but also we have seen surge in deaths due to pollution, reduced life-span and poor quality of life due to ill health caused due to surge in Allergic Respiratory diseases , Allergic Skin diseases , Various Autoimmune diseases, Cancers , Hormonal Imbalances, PCOD and the list goes on.

But as we know trees are our best friends, so here they come for our rescue, luckily there are certain indoor plants which can efficiently takle situation and can bring down pollution and increase oxygen in the air thus making air more breathable effectively at our home.

According to study done at IIT-Kanpur, following 3 plants that require low and occasional sunlight and can efficiently absorb pollutants and release sufficient oxygen are and can grow almost in any region are easily availabe in India as well.

Money Plant, botanical name Epipremnum Aureum, its a creeper that can survive in low sunlight. Check the link for details of plant and its image  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epipremnum_aureum

Areca Palm also called Butterfly Palm, Botanical name Dypsis Lutes, it can survive indoor in low and required sunlight once in couple of months.Check the link for details of plant and its image  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dypsis_lutescens

Mother In Law Tug Plant also called Snake Plant, Botanical name Sansevieria Trifasciata, it can survive indoor in low and required sunlight once in couple of months. Check the link for details of plant and its image  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sansevieria_trifasciata

If 3 Erica Palm and 3 Snake Plant each 3 feet tall are planted in house supplimented with couple of short 3-6feet Money Plant creepers releases good quantity of oxygen and efficiently absorbs pollutants for a house of around 600 sqft with 4-5 members.

Homoeopathy

Homoeopathy is one of the youngest and the fastest growing system of medicine,created by Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann based on principle of “similia similibus curentur” which means “like cures like”, within just 350yrs of its origin it has reached almost all countries and has become second most acclaimed mode of treatment globally (in terms of number of patients taking treatment) to stand just after allopathy (the widespread orthodox, contemporary system of medicine). Homoeopathy believes in minute doses so medicines have active ingredients in nanogram quantities sometimes just few nanobubbles or nanotubules or different formations of nanoparticles which enhances the surface area, so less substance is required to get desired action, also different nanoparticles and mono atoms of a substance have varied characteristics compared to its original substance and behave differently and dynamically so we get wide range of action which is faster compared to just original substance.

Instead of using large material doses of substances having opposite symptom(e.g. administering a substance causing diarrhoea toa constipation patient or administering substance causing constipation to a diarrhoea pathint) like in Allopathy, what Homoeopathic approach does is to administer a very minute dose of a substance having similar symptoms and stimulating body to help recognise the problem and compelling body to learn fight itself; just like vaccines but without side effects.

In Homoeopathy we consider all systems and parts as a whole, working in harmony, all this systems are interrelated, So while treating disease of any particular part or system, we also take into consideration the whole body and mind with all its symptoms so when you are being treated for any major or minor diseases all other minutest accompanying or existing complaints are also solved out. Unlike allopathy, rather than hitting the cause directly with medicines we prefer to go via our own body, we compel our body to learn/fight/reorganize/restore, once the body has learned how to fight it out, it will not let it in again, which helps to remove the disease from the body permanently (till there is no major irregularities in diet, rest, exercise and lifestyle).
