Read This Winter-Hypothermia And Homoeopathy

|

Hypothermia is a condition, which happens very commonly during winter to infants and old peoples.

When body temperature goes below 35.0 °C or 95.°F and it is harmful because body metabolism and body function gets affected negatively by hypothermia.

Recently, a 65-year-old female patient came to clinic complaining of episodic fever with chilliness. When I take her temperature I found it to be 98.5 and upon this she said at this time she is feeling okay so she has normal temperature. I gave her a thermometer and asked her family member to record temperature when she feels fever with chilliness.

Further, she describes these episodes even in bed in early morning, afternoon, and evening with dryness of throat, altered taste in mouth, and anxiety and fear.

Few days later, family reported that they are getting temperature around 95° F and so no fever. I told them it is a bad sign and when she has low temperature try to warm her.

Few days later, family reported me that she has continued to have these episodes even now with much better warm clothing on her body as well on her bed and they are concerned about to find out what is the cause of this episodic hypothermia. I reassured them and just try to keep her warm when these episodes occur and I decided to visit the patient's house to find out any possible cause there.

In patient's house I noticed that she is staying in drawing room with four doors and two windows so I was confident that this room must be always cold so I advised her to be shifted in other room and Gave her Nux Moschata 30c 1 drum (homeopathically indicated medicine for her) and she responded to both these measures and no further episodes of such possible hypothermia.

So old people should stay in a warm room not a constantly chilled room during winter.

Things. I like and can tolerate warm weather than any other weather.


After reviewing the case I believe that the patient's situation is certainly not favoring his
health. He should overcome his unfortunate events occurred in past though it is difficult. I believe that everyone should take a lesion from his unfortunate events, mistakes, and failure and remember the lesion and forgot the event, mistake, and failure.

We would deal first with your last unfortunate event i.e. Divorce and its impact on your health. I believe certainly your life partner was not for you. Premature ejaculation is not a big problem and almost every person suffers from it time to time. It is also not a big problem which cannot be cured if serious efforts are undertaken. You have taken Lycopodium, which is a very good medicine for this condition and you should do not take any other medicine for at least another month as it apt to act for a longer period of time so you should need to observe things only for at least one month. I would like to know your desires regarding your divorced life partner and thoughts regarding her. A medicine which corresponds these desires and thought must help you to overcome this trauma to you. So think seriously and reply me truly.

Online Free Acne Advise-11-HAIRFALL, FLESHLESS BODY AND ACNE

|

The request was sent via email as is as follows:

Dr. Rakesh kumar,
Sir, if you have a little time out of your tight schedule, would you please look at my case once. I got your e mail ID from abchomeopathy.
I am a 25 year old unmarried boy and have been involved in severe masturbation since 10 years. During the past 7-8 years many diseases has curbed into my body.
They are as follows:

Prostatorrhea = Whenever I get sexually aroused, suddenly the prostatic fuild starts flowing through the penis(with or without erection).

Erectile Dysfunction = Mostly there are lack of erections. If at all sometime erection takes place, it is imperfect and doesn't hold for more than 10-12 seconds. Totally decreased libido.

Constipation = I need to go 2-3 times in the morning to empty the bowels, but still there is no guarantee that the bowels would get empty. Sometimes I go once in 2 days. Stomach is bloating most of the time. And due to constipation, gas is another problem.

Urinary disorder = Dribbling after urination, sometimes burning sensation after passing urnine, urine very less in quantity and dark yellow in colour. I need to go for urine only 2 times in 24 hours.

Hairfall = Hair are also falling since 8 years. This also started after I got involved in masturbation. They have become very very thin. Some of my hair have started greying also.
No one in family is bald. All men have black and thick hair.

Fleshless body = My eyes and cheeks have gone inside, they look sunken to great extent, there is no flesh left on my face. My shoulder bones could be seen. I look like an old man.

Acne = Some red papules have developed on my back and hips. They develop regularly. The old ones go leaving stains and blemish, and the new ones keep coming.

Hyperhidrosis and physical weakness = I sweat a lot. I cannot do any physical work for a long time. Even if I walk a small distance, I start panting and sweating thorugh my entire body.

Some doctor suggested Selenium 3X tablets, cantheris, conium for prostatorrhea and dribbling of urine. After having the medicine, both the problems got cured 60 to 70 percent, but they still need some medical attention to get cured completly. I am not in contact with that doctor anymore.
I don't know in what order all these diseases should get cured but my main concerns are HAIRFALL, FLESHLESS BODY AND ACNE, because, all these problems are visual, everybody can see it, so I request you to please prescribe me some medicine to cure these three concerns first, rest of the things afterwards. Ya phir jaisa aapko sahi lagta ho sir.

Now I control my sexual urges, but these diseases need some serious medical help. I have tried many doctors, but market is filled with quack doctors and I don't trust them anymore. I always read the posts on abchomeopathy, you doctors save money and time of the patients without any fees, I want to thank all you great people. Sir I plead you to please guide me in order to help me lead a healthy life.

Thank you

The patient was asked about eating habits and was notified about terms and conditions involving advising via my blog and he gave his consent.

The patient told that he likes eating spicy food, cold drinks, chocolates, etc. I don't like fried stuff and he asked how long would it take to cure my body completely.

I gave him the link of this blog entry and replied that it would depend upon his reaction and he may be sufficiently improve in one to six months. I asked him further about any rash or eruption around the genitalia and about his sexual practices and number of sexual partners.

Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Medicine Induced Abortion), Abortion Naturally Accidentally, and Contraception Naturally & Homoeopathically

|

MTP is a legal issue and MTP act enacted by Government of India states that this can be done only by a physician who can perform the operation and can be done up to 20 weeks of gestation, up to 12 weeks opinion of one doctor is required and from 12 to 20 weeks the opinions of two doctors are required and the doctors must be duly recognized under the law to perform MTP. For more information about this act please visit here. One should not take medicine without consulting a doctor. Before opting medical abortion remember these things
1. Never go alone to doctor or any medical person. You can be blackmailed.
2. Do not go to doctor with friend/boyfriend. You can be cheated. Everything is possible and your close one can cheat you. Believe your family.
3. Do not go medical store for cheap medications for abortion. Right medications for abortion costs around 1200 rupees in India and there may be some serious consequence after taking these medications so take these medications under supervision of a female doctor who can take are of those complications. It is quite possible to be refused by doctors if you go after complication happens and you have consulted her earlier and delay in such condition can be fatal.
4. If abortion does not occur then she has to opt to abortion manually and the procedure is called D&C which is a complicated method in comparison to abortion via abortion pills.
5. Bleeding may be continue intermittently for about two weeks and may be quite heavy at sometimes. Start taking healthier as soon as you got that idea that may opt for an abortion. The healthier diet should include iron rich food items i.e. spinach (palak) and fruits with good iron content i.e. apple.
6. Your pregnancy test may remain positive for sometime after abortion up to two weeks so do not worry, but it still remain positive after two weeks then an ultrasound is warranted and side effects of medications may last one week or more which includes nausea, headache, and vomiting. Homoeopathy can help to ease these symptoms.

7. If you are a married woman who is preferring not having a pregnancy at this time then you should know the fact that after abortion there is a very marked increase risk of being pregnant within 3 or 6 months despite taking precautions because there is increase rate of egg discharge after abortion and one should avoid pregnancy at least 6 months as the quality of egg discharged during this period remains doubtful so you may not able to get your best egg to fertilized. So take care this fact very carefully and possibly use at least three precaution methods i.e. avoidance, condoms, and any device or pill after an abortion for six months.

MTP (Medical Abortion) & Homoeopathy: There are certainly some drugs in homoeopathy, which action have described by some of my female patient that they have produce labor pain like contractions and accidentally some have abortion after a homoeopathic medicines; however, it cannot be confirmed that they were due to homeopathic medicines or anything else. However, post abortion homeopathic medicines can be greatly helpful to removing weakness from blood loss, can prevent incomplete abortion, and are very sufficient to remove any side effects from abortion. I had noticed a great result from homeopathic medicines after abortion.

So I concluded from my own experience that there are some homeopathic drugs, which can cause an abortion, but no one should try if she lives away from hospital or could not get an adequate medical care or where facilities for blood transfusion is not available. I believe strongly that homoeopathic do not cause anything unnatural to body and abortion is not a disease, which homeopathic can cure.

So there is no homeopathic medicine for abortion, but certainly there various homeopathic medicines for abortion caused complications. i.e., weakness and nausea

Emergency contraceptive pills and abortion: Some patients have notified me that they had tried emergency contraceptive pills for abortion and got the desired result. I have told them that it was a fact of chance as it is not an abortion pill and they got result because the lady take the pill must be highly sensitive to hormonal changes and percentage of such highly sensitive females is quite low so it is not worthy to try.

Otherwise no one should try such emergency contraceptive pills for abortion purposes i.e. where pregnancy is already suspected. It may prove life threatening.

Abortion Naturally Accidentally: Excessive anger, bad news, excessive coughing, excessive exertion, severe injury, night watching, overheating can result in termination of pregnancy. However, incidents are very low and should be avoided as they may also prove fatal.

Contraception (Prevention is better than Abortion): For unmarried females who got unprotected sex and wants to avoid any possible pregnancy she should follow these steps.
1. Urinate after intercourse. This habit is helpful to prevent pregnancy and infection.
2. Note last date of menstruation, if it is within three days then there is a very very low chance of being pregnant; however, she can use emergency contraceptive pills. If last date of last menstrual period was more than five days then she should take emergency contraceptive pills available in medical stores.
3. Spot the date of next menstrual period according to her normal cycle and starts doing some unusual things to bring hormonal changes and thus menses and avoid pregnancy. Such things can be overexertion, late night sleeping or night watching and even reading something that causes excitement.
4. If the period does not occur on the due date then go ahead for pregnancy test and told the fact of being pregnant to close one before it is too late for you and others.

Contraception (Prevention is really troublesome For married couples) Prevention is really troublesome as they have regular sexual activity. The most used contraceptive method is condom; however, peoples usually fail to use on every intercourse for many reasons and the peoples think other contraceptive methods causing side effects so hesitate to start it and got in trouble. However, I am telling some facts for such couple to avoid much trouble. These are as follows:

1. Condoms: Condoms still are best way to prevent pregnancy. However, people do not use them regularly until they pay for their fault. So do not learn from own mistake and use it regularly if you wants to avoid pregnancy. Must use condoms during unsafe period or if you are going to sex after few days interval. Recently, some patients asked me that their wife got pregnant while they use regular condoms with no incidence of leakage from it. Upon discussing further, I found that they use condom for first time intercourse in one night and if they consider another intercourse they prefers not to use as they do not ejaculate quite shortly so have command to control ejaculation. I told them it was the reason for pregnancy. There may be sperms on penis from first ejaculation which resulted in pregnancy so avoid doing this or at least wash penis with gentle soap before doing second intercourse without condom, but it is still risky and should not use if your wife has an abortion at least within six months or you have no other option other than abortion if got pregnant


2. Safe periods. Couple may use safe period method for conception, but the failure rate of this also high as during the risky period of menstrual cycle (between 10-15 days from the last menstrual day). there is definite increased desire for sex in female. Read more about safe periods Could not understand wanted to read more-Click here. It is the most watchful thing for a married couple, but it is not a movie, honeymoon spot, cricket match, or serial. The date on which the next menstrual period should start is the most watchful date for couple who do not want a pregnancy for any reason. On this date and one to two day prior to this they should do intercourse. Intercourse on such days can cause onset of menses and prevent any possible pregnancy.

Incomplete Abortion: This is a very important to know about incomplete abortion. Sometimes after abortion ther is still some product left behind which causes untill they are expelled. The chance and severity of complication caused by natural abortions are quite low in comparision to that caused by medicines.

In my experience, women having quite regular menses, history of failure of induction resulting C-section are at more risk for having incomplete abortion than others.

I have also found that women who are insensitive to homoeopathic medicines for their menstrual problems usually have tendency to have a incomplete abortion as they are not a sensitive woman or may be due to interia of uterus.

Many woman do not know how much product should come after abortion. If there is a moderate bleeding after taking Abortion Pill they make take this as an abortion, but it may be not true and she may continue the pregnancy, which ultimately may be a defected newborn.

Or woman may continued which she would think as normal as her doctor may tell that abortion usually take 21 days and ultimately got severely anemic.

One more point to remember, after taking you should not go on regular duty or away from Hospital as if you have an incomplete abortion, there may be quite severe bleeding which may turned into fatal.

Lastly, last thing to remember as soon as you got noticed that you should need an abortion at that time increase your Iron intake, diet, and should use homoeopathic medicines such as Ferrum Met, China, Acid Phos to cope with your upcoming blood loss in abortion.

If one suspect incomplete abortion then she should go either for urine pregnancy test (may result in false positive), ultrasound to confirm complete abortion or can ultimately go for suction D&C, which ultimately solve the problem. Incomplete abortion can be done safely with anesthesia with suction while normal abortion is somewhat risky without anesthesia in some cases, i.e., history of C-section

Health Problems During Summer Season Cured With Puls (Pulsatilla Pratensis)

|

There are various homoeopathic medicines, which are very beneficial for peoples who got sick during summer. These are mainly Ant-C, Bell, Bry, Camph, Carb.V., Flouric-Acid, Gels, Glon, Ipecac, Kali Bi, Lach, Nat. Carb, and Puls.

In the starting of this summer, I got chance to treat two children with boils with Puls. One child was a girl whose case I had posted earlier. Her phase of boils in which boils were mostly located at the base of nose easily cleared by Puls. The main indications were that this girl was a Puls type girl i.e. easy to handle and gentle and location of the boils. Other pleasant, easy to handle, gentle children are of Sulphur, Phos, and Silicea. All of these homoeopathic medicines are well known for curing boils and abscess if given according to the symptoms. This girl lastly stopped having boils by Silicea 30C single dose.

The other case was that of a 1-year-old boy who was presented to the clinic with multiple boils and abscess all over her head particularly forehead for one week. This child was also pleasant and happy during the clinic visit, but with a foolish component in his behavior while the girl described above was very much bright mentally. Few doses of Puls 30 and Puls 200 cured the case just within 4 days with recurrence of boils. Main indications were pleasant boy with habit of playing excessively with water and bathing too much, which possibly cause his boils. Pulsatilla is a very good homoeopathic medicine for problems caused by excessive bathing/exposure to water in hot weather



Another case helped by Pulsatilla was that of a 24-year-old man with acute abdominal pain for about two days got instant relief with Puls 30 two doses at half hour interval. This man initially take some allopathic medicine for this pain, but did not find relief and came to me for his abdominal pain’s homeopathic treatment. His pain gone away just within one hour after the first dose of Pulsatilla. Here the indications were eating ghee after many years, hot weather, and eating stuffed red Chilli prickle with food. In the past I had treated a case of abdominal pain after eating stuffed red Chilli prickle with Bryonia followed by Pulsatilla in a 30-year-old male with constant pain in the periumbilical region for about 30 hours which got significantly improved within 30 minutes after taking Bryonia and completely gone after Pulsatilla.


Lastly, a 35-year-old male patient with lower abdominal pain and testicular pain worse by coughing and movement came for homeopathic treatment. This pain was present for about 36 hours and not progressive worsening or resolving in nature. He reported this pain started yesterday morning after cycling a few miles for exercise in the morning. Upon asking any other problem associated with this pain, he replied frequent urination and constipation. Upon asking food item taken prior to this pain, he reported he ate Poori (an Indian foot item made with wheat flour fried in oil) from Poori corner in market. Considering Poor eating in hot weather and pain in testicle, Puls 30c given and the patient was asked to call me if not got better as I also was conscious about possibility of some serious conditions such as renal calculi and testicular torsion apart from flatulence, constipation and epididymitis. Three days the patient returned to the clinic and reported immediate pain relief after Puls 30c few doses and no pain after 12 hours.

So this summer up until now, Puls gave me near 100% result and proved to me that it is a very good medicines for boils and abdominal pain in summer if it is indicated well.

A cured case of Nipple pain and cyst with homeopathy

|


NIPPLE PAIN AND NIPPLE PIMPLE/CYST AND HOMOEOPATHY

A 30-year-old female came to me for complain of recurrent right for about one year. The pain usually occurs while breastfeeding. History and symptom detail suggested that she is getting which may be due to some fungal infection and after thoroughly reviewing the case, the female was given three doses only for one day.

After about 20 days the patient revisited and reported that there is no pain in the nipple since then but she has a developed a which seems solid, somewhat white, and nontender. I reassured the patient and said that it should disappear within the next 30 days as I suspected it may be due to Graphites which unwanted action lasts usually 60 days and if she still have the lesion then I would gave any medicine for.

After about 15 days, the patient revisited to the clinic and reported that the cyst one day ruptured while bathing with some discharge and now is healed, but now she has developed some cracking between the 2nd and 3rd toes in the left leg. Upon inspection, it was rubbery, foamy whitish cracking once again I reassured the patient and said that it should also be okay within 7 days and asked her to avoid wear shoes and keep the area dry.

After 10 days, the patient revisited and reported that the eruption is now healed and she has no recurrence of nipple pain or eruption.

There may be some unwanted things happen while taking homeopathic treatment, but we should be patience while dealing such things especially in homeopathy. Graphites is a very deep acting medicine and it should be used very carefully and people should not take it by own.

Follow up on Possible CAMRSA boil.

|

On third day course of antibiotics there was only 40 percent improvement and there were still new boils were forming, although with a slow rate and growth.

Mother did reconsulted on third day and her PCP reported that during this monsoon boils are not responsive generally to common safe antibiotics and now changed amoxicillin to ofloxacin for three days. On 2nd days there was about 70 percent improvement, but still new boils were arising and at this time mother revisited me again and reported same course of antibiotics described earlier.

She wanted to me to prescribe something. I have already advised her to give Calendula Q and Echinacea Q so I decided to search again on constitutional medicine and now I noticed that Puls has skin eruption which tend to occur on the base of nose, which is exactly happening here and also looked upon fear of dark in repertory in which Puls is also listed in second grade medicine.

So I decided to advised mom to give one dose of Puls 30 at night and to report me next morning. On next morning, she reported marked decrease in erythema involved with the boil and upon this I advised her to Puls 30c for two days and advised her to complete the antibiotic course.



After two days all boils healed, but on fourth day after finishing course of antibiotics and Puls doses the baby girl again have some red rash one on his scalp, one her forehead, and one on pinna and the mom as soon as seen this started him on Puls again and they are stable and somewhat reduced now.




Mom reported me that she has stopped giving Calendula and Echinacea upon this I advised her to start this again and continue throughout this monsoon season and call me whenever she develop new boils as she may need one of her constitutional medicine i.e., Puls or Sulphur according to the totality of present symptoms.

Hoping, she will not develop boils upon this treatment.

Treatment/management for recurrent rash/boils/abscess in summer

|

In my experience treating/managing recurrent rash/boils/abscess in summer/rainy season is very difficult. From homeopathic point of view, unless a constitutional medicine is not given there would be no cure or significant improvement.

Frequent washing is the key for preventing recurrent boils/rash in summer/rain. Bacteria responsible for boils/rash mainly colonize in the inside the nose and causes boils upon reaching skin usually by nose boring by fingers. There is usually more boring of nose because there is increase crusting in summer in nose. Children tend to bore nose extensively and so children tend to get recurrent boils in summer. Parents should keep the nostril moisturized and may apply some antibiotic solution or homeopathic antibiotic solution Calendula Q.

Calendula Q internally as well as externally should be used as early as you see any boils in summer/rainy season.

Echinacea Q/30c should be used two times daily if you tend to suffer from recurrent boils.

For pain ease from boils in children: Apply pads soaked with warm water with calendula Q for 10-20 seconds alternated with pads soaked with calendula Q in cold water for 3-8 seconds for early maturation and ease of boils. This should be repeated three to five times per day. This really works.

Taking Homeopathic Medicine With Allopathic Medicines

|

I often face situation where I have to give homeopathic treatment along with allopathic medicines advised other physician.


I do not prescribe allopathic medicine to my patient and when these are necessary I used to refer the patient to allopathic physician.


I usually use homeopathic therapeutic medicines not a polychrest homeopathic medicines or constitutional homeopathic treatment in such situation. I do believe this can cause some unwanted reaction while the patient is already got down by sickness.


I usually prefer to wait to patient recover from this acute condition and then give a homeopathic medicine according to the whole symptomatology represented during the episode of illness and the remaining sequelae of it. I usually use water dose initially in such cases.


The case given below is an example for circumstance for homeopathic treatment with allopathic treatment and my method of doing so. Whenever I am asked to give homeopathic medication while the patient is taking allopathic medicines, I usually use mother tincture or lowest potency and a homeopathic medicine who has marked action on that particular disease, disease location or systems involved.


One example case is presented here. For reading the original case click here and for the followup post click here.


Questionable CAMRSA Staph aureus Boils And Homeopathy With Allopathy


This breakout of small boils in this girl seems to be caused by CAMRSA staph aureus infections, as it is not responding quite nicely with antibiotic treatment consisting of amoxicillin and azithromycin. On third day of therapy, there is only 40% improvement. All the boils on nose and one on head are present, but usually they are less erythematous and raised. I advised her to give only Calendula Q and Echinacea 30 to enhance the recovery process. Mostly boils are in the form of solid erythematous papules with delicate looking overlying skin. One papule drained quite much pus in comparison to its size and it is now healing nicely. Some of boil are healing with leaving clotted blood overlying its opening. The child has now decreased thirst and she is urinating less, but mentally she is okay and does not like to wash it with water. The child has also lost some weight, which is common with any type of infection.

This is a case of a baby girl whom I am giving homeopathic treatment from very early in her life when she was a few days old. She is growly very brightly and healthly with homeopathy. She is so charming and follows commonds like very wonderful and her catching and learning capicities are great. She has no fear of vaccination injections as she do great with a few doses of around vaccination and she cries only 30 seconds when pricked by nurse and she leaves the nurse with simle and gesturing byee when leaving.

She is now 17-month old and had only one diarrhea episode, which was successfully treated with Puls which occured in December 2008 and until now she has only two episodes of which were aborted in just two day with the help of Puls and Sulphur only.

She recently developed some prickly heat rash, which were also managed by applying of ice, frequent bathing, and Sulphur.

But recently mother reported some new things, which I am considering not good i.e. desire for light in night while eariler she enjoyed dark and were used to move while in dark, big belly, rather slow weight gain, constipation, bowel movements after meals, etc., but once again mentally the girl is very bright with good memory.

Mother described these things on her last visit for bowel movements after meals. I told her that it is not a disease condition or , but she desired to remove this tendency early and back her to baseline when she used to have a good bowel movement early in the morning and then next one the next morning. One can understand the comfort with associated with this and I gave her Sulphur and Puls each for one day and her bowel movement returned for baseline. This was just eight days ago.

Two days ago, this mother returned for treatment of prickly heat and some boils on her forehead and scalp. This occured because there was a very hot and humid day after rain and prolonged power cut. I gave her once again Sulphur and advised to return if no improvement in next two days. She returned today and there was no improvement and mother washed the head three times with soap and avoided mango, which I asked to do.

This leads me to restudy the case once again and now the

SCHAMBERG'S DISEASE AND HOMOEOPATHY

|

Mr. RS asked is there any treatment for Schamberg’s disease in homoeopathy. The patient was having disease involving severely at ankles and slowly less severe upwards the knee.

Mr. RS was informed that certainly this is a rare disease and there is no case or literature on the internet related to Schamberg’s disease's homoeopathic treatment, but homoeopathy certainly can treat this condition as homoeopathy treats the patient not the disease.

Mr. RS is advised to give detail regarding the patient i.e. himself along with his disease.

Mr. RS reported that it started about one year ago and Mr. RS is advised to recall the events around one year ago and tell me and try to find out any possible cause which he thinks.

The patient was advised to wear compressive stockings and reassured that constitutional homeopathic medicine must help him significantly.

However, Mr. RS did not mail me any further and we could not proceed anymore.

Meanwhile, A 52-year-old gentleman came to my blog and reported that he has some dark red spot on his lower part of the legs. He reported that he was told by a skin specialist that it is Schamberg's disease with limited cure in allopathy. He further reported that he is hypertensive and has been taking Amlogard 5 mg and Losar 25 mg for the past 8 years. He asked for homeopathic treatment for Schamberg's disease.

He was notified all terms and conditions involved my online free homeopathic advice and he apparently accepted these.

He has asked What is the cause of this disease?

My answer is that the cause is unknown yet, but most possibly it is caused by some genetic disorder.

Do your parents have any such disease?

His second question is that is it contagious and My answer is that certainly not.

Please recall events and circumstance when you first notice this. Do you have any major illness during that time. Do you suspect any possible thing responsible for this?

Recurrent Chalazia Disappeared With Homoeopathy (Online Free Child Case No-4)

|


A mother for his 2-year-old son made this online homoeopathic help request. This boy suffers from recurrent chalazia for almost 6 months. It started on the lower left lid and after sometime decreased in the size, but never went away while other tend to develop and gone on top lid. When one subsides, another appears and these are tending to be more severe with time. Mother consulted with pediatric ophthalmologist who couldn't give him any real treatment for it. Mother has been doing warm compresses to keep it soft and encourage draining and it does drain a little sometimes. His eye is red and irritated looking. Mother had put boy on antibiotic eye ointment prescribed by pediatrician and it does nothing.

From the description posted by mother Sulphur was quite indicated and asked about his build-up i.e. about hair, color of skin, and other symptoms associated with eyelids.

Mother replied that boy looks like Caucasian while he is a son from Caucasian and Chinese parents with fine hair, red eye margins, and has problems with excessive wax production in the ear.

Mother was advised to give his son Sulphur and she reported that he eliminated milk from his diet and gave Graphites and Sulphur and within a week chalazion disappeared.
Conclusion: As chalazion usually last for 5-6 months and avoiding milk from diet usually helps for chalazion so it is not clear what actually worked, but overall the child is okay and mom is very pleased with the outcome just within one week of her effort by searching online cure for his son's eyelid condition.

The patient tried Silica for about two weeks and noted no significant improvement. On further conversation it was clear that Silicea was also not the best indicated medicines for her as her photographs showed pus filled papules which seems to burst easily and suppurates very easily while Silicea does not have such speed of suppuration. The patient also got self educated on various homoeopathic medicines used for acne and noted Silicea was quite similar to her problems, but not helped and the other medicines she thought to indicated to her Heper Sulph, which I was not considering as I had an impression of a very gentle soft speaking mannered female while Heper Sulph patient is quite irritable and fussy. I advised to try Heper Sulph and from which she got short-lived excellent relief per our last conversation. I advised her to take Arnica Mon 1M and Heper Sulph 200c water dose for long lasting relief and looking forward for further conversation and further improvement of this female.

Mouth breathing and Homoeopathy (Free Online Child Case No-3)

|

Mother requested online homoeopathic advice on April 24, 2009 for her 10 months old son who is breathing only through mouth mainly causing sleep disturbance and feeding problem with solids. There was no discharge from his nose. Mother seen GP and he said that maybe his sinuses are inflamed, but did not give him any medication. I asked about conditions around 10 days especially of any respiratory illness and his activities at present with regards to eating, sleeping, playing, crying, stool, urine, activity, dullness, restless, etc. and she replied her kid being healthy and nothing unusual happening in the past weeks except teething. He's very obstinate while changing cloth and didn't happen before.

She further reported him to having allergy to cow's milk protein with rash and vomiting and allergy to nuts and soy. He is used to sleep with breast-feed mainly. He has mouth thrush in past and now has constipation. He also had history of dry skin on scalp. He is a boy with rather big head, well built without being a heavy, and short in height to his age.

So I reviewed this boy as a 10-month-old boy with big head who has dry nasal obstruction for about 10 days who is a obstinate child with intolerance (allergy) to milk and tendency to be constipated. These symptoms indicate Calc Carb, but without being chubby and being active contraindicates this so I asked to mom to describes what he likes to eat and what not now these days. In the reply of this mom replied nothing of significance except that he is sweating on head a lot during sleep or breastfeeding.

These conversations happened for three days in which time there was weather change and boy got nasal blockage and nasal discharge like egg white. At this juncture, I advised to mom to give child Puls 30c.

Mom did not get the chance to give the medicines and the child developed an acute episode of illness with runny nose, fever, red throat, and she is afraid that after this passes he will get back to his previous symptoms and asked what should she do. I advised her to give one dose of Puls 30c.

Mother reported noticing change in his symptoms with he can breathe better even if he had a lot of greenish mucus discharge from his nose, which has reduced.

She noticed he became even more active and some constipated and everything is okay now without sweating so much in his sleep. He definitely drinks more milk.
