Homoeopathic Arthritis Management Part 1

Homoeopathic Arthritis Management Part 1

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:

  • 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.

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

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.

Can Homoeopathic Medicines Kill You? “The Killer’s Aggravation”

KILLERS AGGRAVATION

Its a myth that HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES does not have side effects!

The fact is , Its HOMOEOPATHY  that does not have side effects! But HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES if not taken in accordance with HOMOEOPATHIC PRINCIPLES as mentioned in HOMOEOPATHIC ORGANON of medicine then the recipient may have severe aggravations.

As mentioned in KENT’s 12 observations the very first point says “Prolonged aggravation with final decline of patient” also termed as KILLER’s Aggravation by practitioners , a FATAL CONDITION which we not too frequently encounter and is difficult to handle.

So be careful before self medicating or giving medicines to your kids, always consult a registered homoeopathic consultant first.

Do not administer influenzinum for prophylaxis (preventive treatment) of swine flu

Do not administer influenzinum for prophylaxis (preventive treatment) of swine flu H1N1 based on information that’s been spreaded on social sites.

As neither it has been demonstrated by any study that after its administration there is any kind of surge in antibody profile which helps to combat swine flu nor its based on homoeopathic principles!

There are no specific medicines in homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy is based on symptom similarity of an individuals constitution, along with the symptoms his constitution presents for any particular disease conditions prevailing within him/her, with the medicinal symptoms

In homoeopathy each case needs to be individualised, based on his/her constitution, for selection of medicine, based on mental and physical characters with symptoms of an individual.

Now when it comes to prophylaxis (preventive treatment), here patient is not already infected and shows no symptoms, here we need to administer medicines based current characters & symptoms and past history of a person to derive his constitution and thus it may boost his vital systems and energy to combat against any external influences.
So prophylactic medicine may differ from person to person.

Now when it comes to treating already infected swine flu patient there can b same medicine for a group of patients with similar ethnicity and some what similar genetics, if each patient is showing almost similar characteristic and general symptomatology for the prevailing epidemic.
But don’t forget still always there is scope for individualisation for flawless results.

So there can be a probability of common medicine for already infected population which we call genus epidemicus but its difficult not to fail by doing so for prophylaxis regime.

Also the doses will differ from person to person based on susceptibility of each individual.

So you may yield some results with influenzinum in already infected patients but if the same medicine is given to uninfected patient with no symptoms, its completely not in accordance with homoeopathic principles, it may show medicinal aggravation and make a healthy person sick!

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).

Why to choose homoeopathic doctor from India?

Why to choose homoeopathic doctor from India?

In India, unlike other developed/developing countries, HOMOEOPATHY is highly regularized in terms of education and practice, only those having completed formal education from a teaching hospital, affiliated to a recognized university, have rights to practice homoeopathy, after registration.

India has a fulltime rigorous 5 ½ yrs theory/practical/clinical training course BACHELORS IN HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE AND SURGERY (B.H.M.S.) it’s a well designed course parallel to MBBS(Bachelors of Medicine Bachelors of Surgery) course of allopathy  comprising all the subjects with similar credits viz.  Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry,  Pathology, Parasitology, Bacteriology, Forensic Medicine, Toxicology, Preventive and Social Medicine, Surgery, ENT, Ophthalmology, Gynecology, Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Practice of Medicine, plus additional Homoeopathic subjects:-  Repertory, Material Medica, Pharmacy and  Organon of Medicine  which can be opted only after clearing a common  entrance test for  MBBS /BHMS /BAMS /BDS and other healthcare course, held after finishing 10+2yrs of formal education in science stream. After completing 5½ yrs B.H.M.S. course along with 1yr compulsory internship one can pursue a Master’s degree M.D. (homoeopathy) which is 3 yrs full time course, for admission one has to clear a competitive entrance exam after B.H.M.S., so it takes 8 ½ yrs of fulltime rigorous training to be M.D.(Hom) in India.

So, unlike other countries homeopathic doctors in India are not mere homoeopathic medicine practitioners, they highly trained physicians and surgeons whom you also find posted in all the prestigious ultra modern hospitals (government/private)doing a role of a physician and surgeon and even they are posted in ER units.

Indian doctors have a benefit of dense population with low doctor to patient ratio giving them more practical experience/exposure than a doctor in any other country and this is one of the major reasons behind proficiency of Indian doctors.
