This leads to difficulty in performing everyday tasks like writing, holding objects, shaking hands, etc. The course of the condition varies from person to person.

In many cases, Dupuytren’s contracture tends to self limit itself or even regresses in the initial stages itself.

Our body has an immune system that comes into play whenever any virus, bacteria or other microorganism invades our body. Here, the immune system fights the infection and exudes it out of the body. Autoimmune diseases are those diseases that arise when the immune system out of a misdirected response starts to destroy healthy body tissues in the absence of any actual infection in the body. So in autoimmune diseases, our immune system in spite of serving protective purpose starts an inimical destructive process. In SLE, the same autoimmunity process is present. The risk factors for SLE include a genetic predisposition towards SLE, being a woman (chances of SLE in women are ten times higher than in males) and certain environmental factors. Certain factors that are thought to trigger SLE include infections like Epstein-Barr virus, excessive sunlight exposure, smoking, medications like anti-seizure medications, blood pressure medicines and hormonal changes in women during puberty or pregnancy. The diagnosis of SLE majorly appears in the age group of 15 to 40 years.

Top Homeopathic Medicines to Treat BPPV – Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the common causes of vertigo. In BPPV mild to severe attacks of vertigo arise. BPPV results from a problem within the inner ear. Homeopathic medicines help reduce the frequency and intensity of the associated vertigo spells. These medicines also help relieve the associated nausea and vomiting. Conium Maculatum, Gelsemium, and Belladonna are the top homeopathic remedies used to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

homeopathy BPPV

Homeopathic medicines for BPPV.

Our inner ear has a labyrinth and semicircular canals that contain fluid and delicate hair sensors. The movement of the fluid inside the ear moves the hair that lines the labyrinth. The hair movement helps trigger nerve messages to the brain via the vestibular nerve about the position of the head, thereby helping maintain a proper balance. BPPV is thought to arise when a calcified stone otolith (that is usually present in the utricle) gets dislodged and enters the semicircular canal. When the head moves, these calcified stones in the semicircular canal also move. The movement of these stones brushes the hair cells in semicircular canals and sends messages to the brain via the vestibular nerve. As a result, upon moving the head, the brain gets confused with the signals from the (affected) ear and (the unaffected) ear, resulting in a spell of vertigo. The reason for dislodging of the otolith is not clear. A person over the age of 50 yrs is at more risk of developing BPPV. An injury to the head is another contributing factor, and the chances of getting BPPV are more in females as compared to males.

Homeopathic Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – BPPV

The homeopathic mode can help in treating Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – BPPV in an efficient and gentle manner. Homeopathic medicines for BPPV are very safe to use without any side effects.

Causes of Eye Floaters

In a majority of cases, eye floaters arise due to age-related changes that appear in vitreous inside the eyes. Vitreous humor is a liquid that occupies back two third of the eyes. Vitreous humor is jelly-like, clear and transparent matter. It consists majorly of water with a minor content of collagen, salt, and sugar. In aged people, the vitreous begins to liquefy, and the collagen fibers clump together. These strands cast a shadow on the retinal surface that a person perceives as eye floaters. Other causes behind eye floaters include hemorrhage in the vitreous, posterior uveitis and tearing of retina. Tearing of retina may lead to the retinal detachment that needs prompt treatment to prevent permanent vision loss. Some factors including diabetes mellitus, injury to the eye and nearsightedness raise the risk of eye floaters. Eye floaters may also be a part of aura in cases of migraine.
A person may see the floaters as black/gray dots, cobwebs, cloud-like spots, curved lines, rings, fine strands/strings. A person may see a single floater or the number may be up to hundreds varying from case to case. Floaters appear more prominent when a person looks on light colored backgrounds like the sky or a white wall. However, in the event of a sudden increase in eye floaters (especially if a person see flashes of light or there is a loss of vision), an eye specialist should be consulted on an emergency basis as it may be a signal of some critical condition like retinal detachment.
