homeopathy questions and answers

Homeopathy everything you need to know

Homeopathy is a method of healing the mind and body that views the patient as a whole, as an individual in the environment, not based only on the disease’s symptoms. It is a treatment with drugs made in a special way from plants, minerals, animal organs, etc. It is practically harmless, without contraindications and side effects.

CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER HOMEOPATHY

LIVER CIRRHOSIS

Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease in which the following processes take place:

  • Necrosis or death of liver tissue,
  • Abundant connective tissue formation,
  • Attempt liver tissue to recover and
  • Consequently, a blood flow disorder in the liver causes new tissue death.

CAUSES OF CIRRHOSIS:

The causes of cirrhosis can be multiple, and the most important is the so-called:

  • infectious jaundice (hepatitis) and
  • alcohol abuse (e.g., in France, in 90% of cases, cirrhosis is caused by alcohol).  

SYMPTOMS OF CIRRHOSIS:

Symptoms of cirrhosis are pronounced feelings of fatigue, general weakness, bloating, loss of appetite, and dull pain below the right costal arch. Nausea and morning vomiting is particularly pronounced in patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis.  Yellowing of the skin and mucous membranes may be present, and it is usually a sign of acute disease and a worse prognosis. The yellowing intensity shows us the degree of deterioration of the liver tissue.  Some patients have fever as a sign of liver disease and superinfection with bacteria due to decreased immunity, especially in patients taking corticosteroids (which are the recommended therapy for alcoholic liver disease). Anemia (“anemia”) is a common finding, as are bruises on the skin. 

In the advanced phase of the disease, the appearance of free fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites) occurs and bleeding from the esophagus.  In alcoholic cirrhosis, there are disorders in the glands’ work with internal secretion (endocrine glands). There are female sexual characteristics in women, and in women, there is male. This leads to loss of sexual desire and women to sterility, and in men to reduced sexual power (impotence).  

TREATMENT OF LIVER CIRRHOSIS:

As with any illness, the arrival time of the homeopath is significant.  Treatment is easier and faster at the onset of the disease.  Homeopathic remedies slow down or completely stop necrosis and promote liver cells’ recovery.  The feeling of fatigue disappears. The patient is fresher, feels an influx of energy, has more will and strength to perform daily tasks, appetite returns, bloating stops, and nausea and vomiting.

EXAMPLE: 

A 63-year-old patient with cirrhosis due to hepatitis B and C has not left the house for a long time due to very pronounced symptoms.  After less than a month of taking homeopathic medicine, I met her at a Sarajevo picnic area, playing very briskly and happily with her little grandson.

REMARK: 

Given that liver cirrhosis is a severe disease, you will achieve the best results using a constitutional remedy. However, the cure for cirrhosis itself will do a lot without affecting the patient’s psyche.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF DEPRESSION

happiness

Almost a fifth (20%) of the world’s population has at least one episode of true depression during their lifetime. In people older than 60, the symptoms are found in 30% of cases.

Suicide is the third most common cause of death in old age from 15. by age 24 and over, two-thirds of these patients had previously reported to a physician.

Risk factors for developing depression are:

  • female,
  • puberty or old age,
  • previous episodes of depression,
  • the presence of depression in close relatives in 1. knee,
  • depressive disorders in distant relatives,
  • deplorable living conditions,
  • extremely stressful life,
  • current alcohol consumption or addiction,
  • chronic pain and/or spinal disease,
  • loneliness (single, single, widowed, widowed, divorced),

Physical symptoms are uncharacteristic: general weakness, headache, any pain.

According to the latest guidelines, to be diagnosed with depression, a patient must have at least 5 of the following symptoms (including depressed mood and loss of interest) for at least 2 weeks:
  1. Weakened interest in almost all life activities and lack of satisfaction with those activities;
  2. Asleep disorder (insomnia or the constant need to sleep);
  3. Appetite disorder (lack of appetite, overeating, significant weight gain or loss);
  4. Depressed mood (constantly negative and dark thoughts);
  5. Impaired concentration, indecision;
  6. Activity disorder (psychomotor irritability or slowness);
  7. Feeling of loss of energy or weakness;
  8. Constant thoughts of death or even suicide;
To know that it is depression, these symptoms must not be:
  • side effects of some drugs, alcohol or drugs,
  • a consequence of any internal medicine disease or disorder,
  • the consequence of grief for a loved one lost in the previous 2 months,
Since depression is a severe illness, only the so-called constitutional treatment is performed here. Therefore, a detailed conversation of the homeopath with the patient is needed and constant cooperation with the patient and his family.
 
REMARK:
 
If the patient is taking so-called antidepressants, the homeopath will never ask the patient to stop taking these medications without consulting his neuropsychiatrist.
 
After the initial reaction, the patient is seriously improving mood, cheerful and happier by taking a homeopathic constitutional remedy. “Black thoughts” disappear. The patient feels an influx of energy, has more will and strength to perform daily activities. Feelings of guilt or inferiority are lost. There is interest in many things. It regulates appetite as well as sleep. After sleeping, the patient is refreshed and well.

STROKE

Cerebrovascular insult (CVI), apoplexy, stroke, or whipped cream, is the most common complication of the brain and other blood vessels.

It is the most common neurological disease with a fatal outcome (the third cause of death after heart and malignant diseases). Due to the lasting consequences it often leaves, it is one of the most serious diseases, medically and med socio-economically.

Blood flow to the brain is important for the development of this disease.

There are two causes for the cessation of blood supply to a certain part of the brain (oxygen and nutrients) and the occurrence of CVI:

  1. Clogging of the associated blood vessel, or
  2. Bleeding from a blood vessel,

Clinically (by symptoms), it is often impossible to distinguish these two causes.

Risk factors for cerebrovascular disease are :

  • High blood pressure (hypertension, HTA),
  • Heart disease,
  • Diabetes,
  • Elevated blood fats (hyperlipoproteinemia),
  • Smoking,
  • Increased density (viscosity) of blood,
  • Wrong spark,
  • Obesity,
  • Lack of movement
A stroke’s symptoms may appear suddenly or develop over several hours or days. If they last less than 24 hours and are completely withdrawn, it is considered a so-called TIA (transient ischemic attack). It is a transient disorder of the blood supply to one part of the brain. TIA is a warning for a possible stroke in about 30% of patients.
 
Depending on which and how much of the brain is affected by the cessation of circulation, milder or stronger symptoms develop. The most difficult, most famous, and those that cause the greatest fear in people, in general, are deprivation of one or both sides of the body, inability to speak and swallow, uncontrolled urination.
 
However, there are several symptoms, some of which make the patient’s life very difficult: headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, inability to stand, visual disturbances, disturbances of consciousness, so-called primitive reflexes (sucking, squeezing), hiccups, ataxia aphasia (a disorder of pronunciation of words, repetition of the same word).
 
In the case of a stroke, the patient should take homeopathic medicine as soon as possible. Of course, conventional or official medicine is not excluded.           
 
Initially, it is unnecessary to take a homeopathic constitutional remedy; a homeopathic remedy for a stroke is sufficient. However, when the conditions for taking a detailed homeopathic history are met, it is recommended to determine the constitutional remedy. Homeopathic remedies lead to the faster and better withdrawal of symptoms anoa a faster return of the patient to normal life. 

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF HEMORRHOIDS

Hemorrhoids are smaller or larger than the internal or external (or both) hemorrhoidal venous plexus (plexus).

The inner hemorrhoidal plexus is located below the mucosa in the outlet of the colon (ananal canal) and the outer under the skin at the very beginning of this canal, i.e., around the anus.

The tendency to develop these enlargements is hereditary, and favorable conditions for their development are, for example, liver cirrhosis, pregnancy or a tumor in the small pelvis, and long-term constipation (constipation), and the effort of expelling stool. The diet and occupations in which sitting or standing for a long time, along with obesity, promote the development of hemorrhoids.

Problems, i.e., symptoms, occur mainly when an infection occurs.

When enlarging external hemorrhoids, pain always occurs because they lie under susceptible skin. One or more painful blue nodules develop. A reflex spasm of the anus muscles is also present. Bleeding occurs when the skin above the hemorrhoids is injured.

Expansion of internal hemorrhoids can progress in three degrees.

Degree: the nodules constantly remain in the anal canal, and when the stool is expelled (defecation),
degree: nodules with stool come out (prolapse), but then spontaneously return to the canal
degree: permanently prolapsed nodules no longer return to the anal canal.
An early symptom of enlargement of internal hemorrhoidal nodules is bleeding, usually bright red due to the connections between arteries and veins, and sometimes so strong that blood squirts around. At the earliest stage, they are not painful because they lie under a relatively insensitive mucosa. Pain occurs when falling out, with infection and circulatory arrest.

The most common complication is the entrapment of internal hemorrhoids in the ring of the round muscle of the anus, with the consequent development of thrombosis, all the way to the purulent collection and gangrene (tissue death).

So-called anal fissures or cracks often accompany hemorrhoids.

Homeopathic treatment of hemorrhoids can take place in two ways. It would be best to take a constitutional remedy, but a remedy for hemorrhoids will also give a valid effect.

Swelling, pain, inflammation is reduced. The infection recedes, the bleeding stops.

The evacuation of the stool is greatly facilitated.

To determine the appropriate remedy for hemorrhoids, a homeopath only needs to know whether the patient’s symptoms are relieved by a cold shower or a warm bath. It is unnecessary to take a detailed homeopathic history to determine this medicine.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF GERD

coat of arms

Gastroesophageal reflux disease or esophageal disease is caused by acidic contents from the stomach or alkaline base from the duodenum.

This is one of the most common diseases of the esophagus. In two-thirds of cases, reflux or vomiting is caused by transient relaxation of the lower esophageal clamping muscles. The reasons for this indulgence are numerous, from pregnancy, through taking some medications (Apaurin, etc.), to drinking alcohol and smoking. We also have the so-called stress reflux caused by increased abdominal cavity pressure during abdominal muscle spasms. It is much more common in men.

The link between a disorder we call sliding hiatal hernia (occasional prolapse part of the stomach into the thoracic cavity) and reflux disease is questionable. A large number of patients with the severe esophageal disease have a hiatal hernia, but on the other hand, a large number of patients with a hiatal hernia have no reflux at all.

Reflux esophagitis is an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus that occurs due to reflux. On the mucosa, we see various changes, from redness to minor or major damage.

The most common symptom of GERD is the so-called. Heartburn. It’s a burning sensation below and behind the sternum.

It occurs because the mucous membrane’s surface layer is damaged by reflux, so the nerve endings are exposed, which react to the stimulus. Heartburn usually occurs after a meal and is exacerbated by lying in a horizontal position, leaning forward, or straining.

Other symptoms include pain behind the sternum, gastric contents’ return to the oral cavity (especially at night, so the patient wakes up coughing with a mouth full of fluid), difficulty swallowing (usually transient) pain when swallowing. The pain is often intense, spreads to the neck and arms, and mimics heart problems. Very difficult swallowing is a sign of the development of narrowing of the esophagus.

It’s bleeding, rarely the initial symptom.

During the oral cavity return, you can inhale the stomach contents, so symptoms of hoarseness, bronchitis, spasm (spasm) of the bronchi, or even pneumonia appear.

The course of the disease varies from person to person. Some patients experience a spontaneous withdrawal of symptoms without any therapy, and others develop severe complications even though they take regularly prescribed adequate medical therapy.

If reflux disease occurs, e.g., during pregnancy or intense vomiting, symptoms will usually resolve spontaneously, although they may recur at irregular intervals. In other cases, the symptoms will disappear with active and intensive medical therapy, but they reappear after stopping the therapy. Finally, if reflux and heartburn are constantly present, which are stubborn and resistant to therapy, surgical treatment remains. It strengthens the lower part of the esophagus or widens the constrictions.

Reflux disease complications are narrowing of the esophagus and minor or major bleeding.

In homeopathic treatment should determine the so-called. Constitutional remedy, i.e., you should take a detailed homeopathic history. After psychological stabilization, the symptoms are withdrawn by the esophagus and stomach. The heartburn calms down. There is no more reflux, as well as no pain. If there has been bleeding, it stops—no difficulty in swallowing. Inflammation of the mucous membranes subsides.

Since the patient first achieved mental stability, the symptoms will not return as long as he is happy and satisfied.

However, certain medications, such as Argentum nitricum, Calcarea carbonica, Carbo vegetabilis, or Sulfur Acid, can only eliminate the symptoms without basic treatment. Still, in that case, you must be prepared for the symptoms to return someday.

GASTRITIS

This is what we call the inflammatory process of the gastric mucosa. Gastritis is mainly characterized by erosions (damage) of the mucosa, resulting in bleeding.

About 25% of all bleeding from the upper digestive tract is due to erosive gastritis. Bleeding can be extensive but is usually milder.

Blood vomiting often occurs. Other symptoms are nonspecific. Nausea, vomiting, and pain in the spoon after a meal and consequent refusal of food are possible.

Despite the significant frequency, the cause of gastritis remains unknown very often.

The most common causes are non-steroidal anti-rheumatic drugs, primarily acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin, Andol, Acisal …). The risk of bleeding is high when patients take this medicine for at least four days a week or more.

Another important cause of erosive gastritis is alcohol, and one of the most common  The cause, which sometimes leads to fatal bleeding is stress. It has long been known that patients with multiple injuries (polytraumas), burnt patients, and patients in shock often get this disease.

Due to the severity of the disease, it is recommended to prescribe a constitutional homeopathic remedy, although certain medicines can help calm the symptoms without detailed homeopathic history. These are Naja, Ignatia, Veratrum, Phosphor, Gelsemium.

STOMACH AND DUODENAL ULCER

STOMACH AND DUODENUM ULCER (ULTRASOUS DISEASE)

Ulcer (grizzly bear, ulcer, ulcer) is limited damage, round or irregular defect of the mucosa, of varying depth, which occurs in parts of the digestive tract where there is (reaches) gastric acid. Wherever it occurs, the ulcer heals with a scar.

At least once in a lifetime, this disease affects about 10% of the world’s population. It is more common with some other diseases, such as cirrhosis of the liver, chronic lung disease, and chronic kidney failure.

Among the drugs that affect this disease’s appearance, we must mention non-steroidal antirheumatic drugs, especially acetylsalicylic acid, which is especially associated with gastric ulcers. It has been noticed that people with blood group 0 are more likely to suffer from ulcer disease, and when they get it, they are more likely to have dangerous complications, such as perforation (cracking) and bleeding. There is no doubt that this disease is associated with cigarette smoking, and relapses (recurrences) are common in smokers.

It is believed that certain mental conditions lead to the development of ulcer disease. These are, for example, nervousness, tension, strong ambition, fear, etc. And the so-called stress ulcer in patients with sepsis, multiple injuries, burns, and patients in shock.

They affect all age groups, but most often people between 30 and 60. There used to be 2.5 times more sick men than women, and today that ratio is almost equal.

It has long been known that periodicity is one of ulcer disease characteristics. Spring and fall are seasons of pain.

The main symptoms are discomfort and dull or burning pain, most commonly in the epigastrium, the abdomen below the sternum. Pain can occur both to the left and right of the spoon, and if the pain goes to the back or the right costal arch, it can mean a complication  – penetration into the pancreas or towards the liver.

There are some important differences between an ulcer on the stomach and one on the duodenum (duodenum).

In the stomach, the pain occurs about 45 minutes after a meal, and food intake often makes it significantly worse. This also results in greater weight loss. Nausea and vomiting are also present, unrelated to disturbances in the normal food passage through the digestive tract. Bleeding is a common complication (occurs in 25% of patients), and complications are more likely to be fatal.

It hurts duodenal ulcers 2 to 3 hours after a meal and is regularly provoked by hunger, usually lost after a meal. Sometimes the patient wakes up in pain late at night. Nausea and vomiting are present due to obstruction in the passage of food.

COMPLICATIONS OF ULTRASOUND DISEASE ARE  :

Bleeding occurs due to damage to blood vessels by stomach acid. It can stop spontaneously in 70% of patients and recur in 40% of them. It is manifested by vomiting of blood (hematemesis) or black stools (melena). The elderly can be very serious. You require surgical intervention.

Perforation occurs when the ulcer penetrates all the stomach wall layers or duodenum, and their contents are poured into the abdominal cavity. There is severe pain (like a stab wound) in the upper abdomen. This is a condition where you MUST NOT WAIT but should call an ambulance IMMEDIATELY.

Penetration  – the ulcer penetrates the surrounding organs (pancreas and liver). Like previous complications, it may endanger the life of the patient.

Obstruction of normal gastric emptying due to scars caused by ulcer healing leads initially to vomiting of fresh food and then to food two to three days old. This quickly weakens the patient, and surgery is required.

HOMEOPATHY AND ULTRASOUND DISEASE:

Since this is a severe disease, it will ALWAYS be recommended constitutionally, i.e., individual, thorough treatment. Once the patient is mentally stabilized, the symptoms will recede independently.

But there is a whole range of drugs that can act only on different symptoms: Calcarea carbonica, Sulfur, Silicea, Phosphorus, Nux vomica, Argentum nitricum, Kalii bichromicum, Sanguinaria, Natrium muriaticum, Pulsatilla, Arsenicum album …

According to the information you provide, the homeopath will prescribe one of these medicines or a combination of several of them, the so-called poly media, and to determine the constitutional remedy, as always, taking is required detailed homeopathic history.

CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

Feelings of tiredness, exhaustion, and fainting are among the most common ailments people complain of. About 20% of patients who see a doctor for any reason report fatigue as one of the symptoms.

However, if fatigue is severe enough to interfere with daily normal activities or if it lasts longer than a few days, possible organic diseases (anemia, renal failure, diabetes, adrenal disease, liver disease, thyroid dysfunction, heart failure, infectious diseases, or malignant tumors), as well as exposure to various toxins, the action of certain drugs, and eating disorders. In these cases, the cause of fatigue should be treated.

We are left with the psychological causes of fatigue, i.e., stressful situations, as well as too much work and too little sleep. Unlike the fatigue caused by the disease, which is stronger in the evening, and patients feel better after sleep, “nerve-based” fatigue is most pronounced in the morning after sleep. As evening approaches, the condition improves. This is very similar to the symptoms of depression but differs from it in many characteristics.

This disorder is more common in women and occurs between 20 and 50 years. In addition to prolonged and severe fatigue and exhaustion, which lasts at least six months, and sometimes years, there are various other symptoms, such as sore throat, mild fever with or without fever, enlarged and painful lymph nodes, the sensitivity of the eyes to light, headache, diarrhea, muscle and joint pain without swelling, sleep disorders and memory loss. Because of all this, the cause of this syndrome was considered to be a chronic infection with a virus, but this has never been proven, and the real cause of conventional medicine is still unknown.

There is no dilemma about the cause nor the treatment of chronic fatigue for homeopathy. The cause is definitely stress, i.e., accumulated life problems that we do not know how to deal with. There is a drop in energy in the body in the word’s true sense. Treatment is carried out exclusively with a constitutional remedy, the determination of which requires a detailed homeopathic history. The patient first changes his attitude towards the problems, i.e., it stabilizes mentally, and then there is a strong influx of energy and the disappearance of fatigue. Not to mention that all physical symptoms subside immediately.

TRIGEMINUS NEURALGIA

This is how we call sharp attacks of pain in the area of the upper and lower part of the face, which is innervated by the fifth cerebral nerve, the trigeminal nerve. It is divided into three branches, and the pains are most common in the area innervated by the second and third branches.

These attacks occur three times more often in women than in men in the age group over fifty years. The cause is unknown. They have been observed more frequently in patients treated with digoxin (a medicine for the heart).

If they appear at a younger age, they can sign multiple sclerosis.

The pain is one-sided. It occurs through short (10-30 seconds) burning pains, reminiscent of a knife stab. External stimuli, such as to cause them. Chewing, drinking, speaking, laughing, wiping your nose, or even just touching your facial skin or blowing wind. These stimuli also intensify the pain. As a result, the patient develops anxiety and anticipation of pain to avoid exactly what will cause it hardly. Otherwise, patients dramatically describe these pains as “crazy.”

During the attack, the blood vessels in the painful area are dilated, there is a narrowing of the pupil and increased secretion of tears and runny nose.

Homeopathy can significantly relieve or even eliminate pain. This can be achieved by administering the drug without a detailed homeopathic history. However, if recurrences are to be prevented, it is recommended to prescribe a constitutional homeopathic remedy, i.e., taking this medical history. In this case, the patient is first mentally stabilized, and then neuralgia is definitely resolved.

PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS)

A nightmare for millions of women worldwide, PMS is a severe health problem and the reason for the constant loss of many working and school hours.

The most common manifestations of PMS have increased nervousness, irritability, intolerance towards family members or associates, sometimes aggression, uncontrolled crying for no real reason, inability to properly assess certain situations, or looking at things “from the darkest angle.” There is also an increased appetite, most often the desire for sweet food. Physical disorders are pain in the lower abdomen, with or without pain in the legs, pain in the lower back (crosses) with or without pain in the legs, swelling and pain in the breasts, and swelling (puffiness) of the face and whole body. Headache is very often present.

There are no rules on how long PMS interference lasts. Three, seven, but also ten or more days. They usually stop at the beginning of menstruation, but sometimes they last for another day or two or even until the bleeding stops. The headache can last for a few days after menstruation.

The hormonal changes that take place in a woman’s body during the menstrual cycle are normal and prepare the female body for the possibility of pregnancy every month. If pregnancy does not occur, menstruation occurs.

Different causes can lead to different disorders of the menstrual cycle and the appearance of PMS. These can be infections, inflammations, tumors, disorders of the endocrine glands, alcoholism, etc. Also, the causes can be psychogenic.

Homeopathy and PMS

As we know, according to homeopaths, the basic cause of all our diseases and disorders is stress. So it is with PMS. Many women are fully aware that they have increased bleeding and more painful menstruation when burdened with some problem. Mental problems then intensify especially. In many of them, the cycle is completely disrupted, so there is either the absence of menstruation for one or more months, or menstruation occurs twice a month.

In all of this, the most terrible are not the difficulties themselves, no matter how strong they may be, but how women accept this problem. It is common to believe that it is normal for girls to have painful periods until they get married and have their first child. Women are used to having severe headaches every month. Just make sure there are enough painkillers in your home or purse. Of course, this is not normal. Natural things like menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth should go smoothly and painlessly. Even labor pains in a healthy and normal birth are not terrible. As far as psychological problems are concerned, both the woman and her environment suffer there; tranquilizers do not usually help.

There are excellent homeopathic remedies for menstrual pain, which are taken as needed while the problems last. However, the real help comes by prescribing an individual or constitutional remedy. This requires taking a detailed homeopathic history. This drug will, after psychological stabilization, lead to the normalization of the menstrual cycle and the cessation of all PMS problems.

ANOREXIA AND BULIMIA

More than three hundred years ago, a disease was mentioned, including weight loss, absence of menstruation, and behavioral disorders.

Nowadays, unfortunately, primarily due to completely disturbing perceptions of beauty, fashion, and socially acceptable appearance, we encounter these two diseases more and more often and their combination (bulimarexia).

It is estimated that about a quarter of young women between the ages of 18 and 35 in Western European countries and the United States have a pronounced problem to a greater or lesser extent. By the way, one man comes to nine women with this disease. It is rarely found in Eastern and Black populations and is not common in poor societies.

Anorexia and bulimia are typical psychosomatic illnesses (i.e., diseases of the soul and body). Most doctors believe that this is primarily a mental disorder, which occurs due to growing up in a dysfunctional family, feelings of loss or separation, emotional problems, and problems in sexual development, and the maturation of personality. Such people develop deep dissatisfaction with their appearance and themselves in general.

Anorexia is characterized by refusal to eat, even with severe hunger. This leads to severe weight loss. The patient uses all possible ways to avoid food intake and lose even more weight. She pretends to eat, causes herself vomiting, and takes diarrhea remedies. The absence of menstruation regularly occurs in younger women. This is followed by constipation and cold intolerance due to disturbed thermoregulation of the body. Body temperature is low, blood pressure, and the heartbeats slower. Adipose tissue disappears. The bones sift through the skin. The skin is predominantly dry, with increased hairiness. Laboratory findings, among other things, show hormonal disorders, which are normalized by weight gain.

The characteristics of bulimia are uncontrolled intake of huge amounts of food, self-induced vomiting, and bowel movements, pathological fear of obesity, as well as depression after eating.

This, in addition to weight loss, leads to various disorders and changes: inflammation of the esophageal mucosa, heart rhythm disorders, tooth damage, fatigue, weakness, drop in blood pressure, headaches, frequent bladder infections, possible kidney damage, thyroid dysfunction, but also a tendency to gaining weight !!!

Treating anorexia and bulimia is extremely difficult. The cooperation of the patient, family, and the wider community is needed.

Homeopathy can help a lot because homeopathic constitutional medicine achieves exactly what is necessary for the treatment of these diseases. Namely, the patient begins to look at herself and the world around her in a completely different way. Its value system is changing. For the first time in his life, he learns to love and appreciate himself. Emotional traumas develop, and symptoms of depression subside. As self-confidence increases, so does the desire to do something good for oneself. Bad eating habits change (refusing food or overeating). Anorexic people gain weight, and bulimics will reach their goal smartly and healthily if they really need weight reduction. Although often, when you no longer have that passionate feeling of hunger (which is actually emotional hunger), you won’t even need any diet.

The most important thing is to take anorexia and bulimia very seriously. In malnutrition, where the weight loss is about 35%, it can easily be fatal. Sometimes the patient must feed on infusions, but she must start eating normally on her own as soon as possible.

To determine the appropriate remedy, a homeopath must take a detailed homeopathic history.

INFLAMMATORY PROCESSES

Inflammation is a natural, valuable process by which the body defends itself against disease-causing agents and seeks to recover tissue structure and function.

There are four typical acute inflammation signs: redness, heat, swelling, and pain. These are local signs at the site of inflammation, and in addition to them, the so-called systemic signs, such as weakness, malaise, fever (chills), fever, headache, muscle aches, etc. They are mainly caused by various chemical compounds in the blood (mediators).

When the cells of the inflammatory response (lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, etc.) destroy the cause of the infection or foreign material and clear the damaged tissue, one of the four outcomes of acute inflammation occurs:

1. Restoration of normal tissue structure and function;

2. Scar formation with altered tissue function;

3. Creation of abscesses (encapsulated pus collection);

4. Development of chronic inflammation;

Logically, only the first outcome is favorable for the organism, while the others permanently impair health and quality of life. The scar tissue interferes with the organ’s function in which it was created; chronic inflammation is occasionally acute. It goes from a state of rest to an active state, usually when there is a drop in immunity for any reason. An abscess, however, in itself severely impairs the body’s immunity.

HOMEOPATHY AND INFLAMMATION:

Homeopathy can do a lot when it comes to the inflammatory response.

There is a whole range of different homeopathic remedies, which help cure acute inflammation with quality, i.e., to arrive at the first-mentioned outcome. They also help eliminate abscesses.

Different drugs have an affinity for different inflamed organs, but some drugs work in each case.

  • Many inflammations begin after sudden exposure to cold, rain, wind. They can be prevented if Aconitum is taken within 24 hours.
  • Hepar sulfur is extremely good for the rapid treatment of purulent inflammation. The pus collection “matures” very quickly, and the pus leaks out.
  • Silicea helps expel foreign bodies and helps slow the evacuation of pus.
  • Echinacea raises the body’s general immunity, thus helping to treat inflammation.

WE WILL LIST ONLY SOME MEDICINES FOR CERTAIN INFLAMMATIONS:

  • Euphrasia and Argentum nitricum are important drugs for conjunctivitis (inflammation of the thin, transparent lining that wraps around the eye).
  • Kalii bichromicum is best for sinusitis.
  • For laryngitis (laryngitis) and pharyngitis (pharyngitis) are given Spongia, Antimony tartar, Phosphorus, and tonsillitis Baryta carbonica, Silicea, Lachesis, and Lycopodium.
  • Bryonia, Ipecachuana, Antimony tartar, Arsenicum album, Phosphorus, Sulfur are used for bronchitis and pneumonia.
  • Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) responds well to Potassium iodide and Mercury solubilis.
  • Bryonia, Apis, Silicea are excellent for joint inflammation.

These and many other remedies can be used without a homeopath’s detailed discussion. It is only necessary to give clear information about each symptom related to inflammation. Example  :

An irritating, cutting cough accompanied by restlessness, anxiety, and fever will require Aconitum.

In case of recurrent or chronic inflammation, it is definitely recommended to determine an individual or constitutional medicine, for which it is necessary to take a detailed homeopathic history.
