Missed Periods – Treat Amenorrhea Naturally with Homeopathy

Amenorrhea refers to absence of menstrual periods in females who are of reproductive age means between puberty and menopause. The normal menstrual cycle begins in girls during puberty between the ages of 11 to 15 years. Then it occurs regularly once every month till menopause ( the age when the menstrual periods stop naturally usually around the age of 45 yrs). When women between puberty and menopause after getting a regular cycle suddenly do not get periods altogether for three months or more then they have amenorrhea. Homeopathic medicines for amenorrhea aim to regularise the menstrual cycle by correcting hormonal imbalances in a safe, natural way. 

This is not a disease in itself and can arise from various reasons. It normally happens during pregnancy, breastfeeding. Other than these natural causes it can be a sign that can indicate some underlying health problem. 

Causes 

Primary Amenorrhea

Menstruation cycle starts between the ages of 11 to 15 years. If the menstrual periods don’t start by the age of 16 yrs then it is primary amenorrhea and medical help should be seeked in such cases. 

The causes of primary amenorrhea includes congenital absence of uterus or fallopian tubes, some structural abnormality  in female reproductive system, vaginal atresia (in this vagina is abnormally closed or absent), imperforate hymen (normally vagina is surrounded by thin membrane called hymen with a small, opening in the center. In imperforate hymen, opening in this membrane is absent thereby blocking vaginal canal). Other reasons include Turner syndrome (In this women lacks some part or entire of one of the two X chromosome and ovaries are replaced by scar tissue and there is very less production of estrogen), androgen insensitivity, premature ovarian failure and problem of pituitary gland that secretes hormones required for menses.

Secondary Amenorrhea

When regular menstrual periods have started in women but afterwards some time in their life they miss their periods then it is considered a case of secondary amenorrhea. If they miss just one period then it is not a reason for concern. To be diagnosed with secondary amenorrhea a woman must have missed periods for at least three months or more when they usually have regular periods in the past. Other than this it is also diagnosed when a woman having irregular periods doesn’t  get a period for around six months.

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is one of the main reasons behind it. Next reasons are use of certain oral contraceptives pills (birth control pills), certain types of IUD (intrauterine devices); stopping birth control pills also takes time to regularise menstrual cycle. Some medications including antipsychotics, antidepressants and some blood pressure control medicines can lead to amenorrhea. It can also arise from thyroid dysfunction. Other reasons include stress, depression , excessive weight loss or sudden weight gain, having eating disorders ( anorexia or bulimia), intense exercise, poor nutrition. Apart from above scarring /adhesions in uterus, tumours in ovaries and pituitary tumours and surgical removal of uterus or ovaries lead to this. A female may also be predisposed to have amenorrhea if she has a family history of the same. Sometimes Premature menopause causes it (normally menopause happens around age of 45 but in some females it happens before age of 40yrs with stoppage of menses)

Certain physiological causes (when periods naturally do not appear) include pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause.

Along with missed periods some other symptoms may accompany depending upon the cause behind it. These include pelvic pain, milky discharge from nipples, hair fall, facial hair (hirsutism), acne (pimples), headache and vision changes.

Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Otosclerosis

Otosclerosis is a condition where a bone (called stapes, present in the middle ear) gets stuck in its place. The sound waves enter from the outer ear and from here pass to the ear canal followed by eardrum. This eardrum vibrates from sound waves. This vibration is then carried forward to three little bones present in the ear known as malleus, incus and stapes. The middle ear bones amplify sound vibrations and help to transmit sound from the middle ear to the inner ear. If the stapes bone gets fixed in its place then it hinders normal transmitting of the sound from middle ear to inner ear leading to hearing loss. It is one of the most common causes of hearing loss that arises among young adults. Homeopathic medicines for otosclerosis are highly effective to manage the associated symptoms and bring about recovery.

Homeopathic Medicines for Otosclerosis

Causes 

The exact reason behind this condition is still not clearly known. But it is thought to arise when extra bony tissue grows around the bone stapes in the middle ear. This abnormal growth of bone decreases the movement of the stapes. It results in a decrease in the amount of sound that is passed to the cochlea in the inner ear. The abnormal bone grows slowly and eventually it gets fixed in its place.

Genetic and environmental factors are thought to play a role in its development. Persons having family history of otosclerosis are at high risk to suffer from the same condition. If we consider age then it mainly tends to affect people between the age of 10 to 40 years. Though both men and women can develop this condition but it has been found that women are at higher risk to get otosclerosis as compared to men. People who have suffered from measles at any time in the past are at risk. Measles can lead to development of this condition is evident from the detection of measles virus in stapes footplates in persons having otosclerosis found in various studies. It has also been found that a reduction in cases of otosclerosis has followed in the population who have been vaccinated against this viral infection supporting role of measles virus in otosclerosis.

People who have stress fractures to the bones in the middle ear or have / had some of the autoimmune disorder are at risk to suffer from this condition. It is also known that pregnancy can make this condition worse though it doesn’t cause it. A possibility of low levels of fluoride  with the development of otosclerosis is also related. It has been evidenced by the fact of reduction of the number of cases of otosclerosis in the UK after adding  fluoride in drinking water on a routine basis. Though this possibility is under controversy.

Symptoms 

The major symptom that a person gets in this condition is hearing loss. Initially there arise difficulty in hearing low – pitched sounds or there is inability to hear a whisper. This tend to gets worse gradually with passing time. Many people having it often narrate that their hearing ability is somewhat better when they are in environment with lot of noise. Mainly conductive type of hearing loss occurs. In this sound  waves are able to reach the eardrum but are not carried properly from bones in the middle ear and hence to the inner ear. Sensorineural hearing loss can also occur but it usually appears late with the progression of the disease. The person having it may speak softly because this condition can make him hear his voice sound very loud. Next symptom that appears along with hearing loss is tinnitus (hearing noises in the ear in the absence of any external sound.) It arises from irritation of the nerve endings in the inner ear. It tend to worsen from exhaustion, fatigue, nervousness and in a quiet environment. The intensity of tinnitus doesn’t depend on the intensity or type of hearing loss. Other symptoms that can arise include dizziness / vertigo (a sensation where a person feels as if he is spinning or surrounding objects are moving) and issues with maintaining normal body balance. In this condition one or both of the ears can be affected.

Homeopathic medicines for adrenal fatigue are very effective to manage the associated symptoms.

Though the term adrenal fatigue is often given in health books, it is not considered as a real condition and isn’t recognised as a medical diagnosis. This is because the symptoms are very general and  can appear in many other conditions. But the ones who support adrenal fatigue agree that this condition exists and arise from chronic stress.Homeopathic medicines for adrenal fatigue

Symptoms 

Some examples of other conditions that have adrenal fatigue like symptoms include anaemia (decrease in healthy red blood cells to supply oxygen to the body’s tissues. In this weakness appears along with some other symptoms like dizziness, headache, shortness of breath), hormonal disorders like hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid when the thyroid gland  doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones), depression (a mood disorder characterised by constant sadness and loss of interest in everything) and other mental illnesses and fibromyalgia (a long term disorder characterised by widespread pain in the body are experienced along with tiredness and general fatigue.

Other symptoms that can appear are depressive mood, brain fog (refers to a temporary state where a person is unable to think clearly, is confused, forgetful and is unable to focus and concentrate on anything), lightheadedness, trouble with digestion and darkness of skin colour. 

Causes 

The adrenal glands located on top of the kidneys produce hormones needed for normal functioning of the body. This gland produces cortisol which helps to cope with a stressful condition. Next it produces aldosterone that regulates sodium and potassium levels. Adrenal fatigue arises when the adrenal gland doesn’t produce enough of these hormones due to some reason. It is usually thought to arise from chronic stress when adrenal glands are overworked and get drained which make them unable to produce the hormones in an increased quantity needed in case of long standing stress.

Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Growing Pains in Children

Growing pains refers to pain in the child’s leg which is most times aching or throbbing in nature, and may sometimes also be felt in the arms. The exact reason behind growing pains is not known yet. Growth doesn’t hurt and bone growth is not painful normally. They are thought to arise from muscle tiredness from overuse of the muscles during day time. Homeopathic remedies for growing pains are very beneficial to relieve pain in the legs, thighs, calf muscles, hollow of knee, head and abdomen.Homeopathic Remedies for Growing Pains

Overuse of leg muscles mostly tend to arise in the children from excessive running, jumping or playing games which proves to be harsh on the child’s muscles. Lower pain threshold level in some children is also linked with bringing on these pains. Here a child having a lower pain threshold feels more pain than other children normally feel after a certain limit of physical activity. Weak bones in some of the children having growing pains than other children of the same age group is another factor linked with it. Very rarely it can be linked to psychological issues like stress but usually it is not a cause behind these pains. A diagnosis for growing pains is made after ruling out all other causes of leg pain in children like arthritis, infection, knock knees etc.

Symptoms

Aching throbbing pain in the legs is a major symptom of this condition. The pain can be felt in front of the thighs, shin / tibia bone (front of lower leg), the calf muscle (muscle on the back part of lower leg) or behind the knees. In case of the pain behind the knee there is no swelling or redness present in case of growing pains which if present may be an indication of juvenile idiopathic arthritis JIA (it is the common type of arthritis that affects children under the age of 16 yrs). 

Most times the pain appears in both sides of the leg in these cases. Sometimes these pains can be present in the arms too and in this case also both arms are affected at the same time. Rarely some children can feel the pain in their abdomen. Sometimes they may also complain of pain in the head along with legs and arms. In case of growing pains the pains mainly start in late afternoon, evening or at night time. They usually tend to disappear in morning time. The intensity of pain varies from child to child from mild to severe. Sometimes the pains in this condition are of highly intense nature that can even wake up the child from sleep. Though these pains can be quite intense, sometimes they don’t indicate any  serious issue and also don’t cause any sort of damage to the muscles or bones of the child. The pain in this condition comes and goes and is not constant. Sometimes it is felt only for a few minutes while at other times it lasts a few hours. The pain is not there everyday – there are days with pain and days without pain. But in severe cases a child can experience pain every day. These pains do not cause limping, fever and in these cases the leg is not swollen or sore to touch. If these symptoms are present then child must be checked to rule out other reasons like an infection or an injury

Affected Age Groups

The age group affected by it is between 3 yrs to 12 yrs and the age of onset of this condition lies between 2 yrs to 5 yrs. They are slightly more common in girls as compared to boys. Usually these pain resolves by puberty age. But sometimes these may continue till teenage and  even to adulthood.

10 Top Grade Homeopathic Medicines for Abdominal Pain 

Abdominal pain is a symptom that can arise from various reasons. Some of the reasons are not serious (like pain from gas, indigestion, muscle pull) that tend to resolve quickly with home treatment or mild medicines. However some reasons are serious (like appendicitis) needing immediate medical help. Homeopathic medicines for abdominal pain are safe, natural and effective and can be used in abdominal pain of mild to moderate intensity.homeopathic medicines for abdominal pain

Many people use the term ‘stomach ache’ instead of abdomen pain to refer to pain in any area of the abdomen. But it is incorrect as stomach is just one organ in the abdomen along with other organs which includes  liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, large intestine, small intestine, kidneys and appendix. Abdominal pain can arise from any sort of inflammation, infection or disease of any of the various organs that lies in abdomen. The abdomen pain can be localised to one part of abdomen or it can be widespread. The location of pain depends upon which organ of abdomen is involved. The nature of pain also varies like it can be cramping, burning, tearing, drawing, colicky etc. 

Causes

The cause of abdominal pain depends upon the area of the abdomen involved and the organs that lie in that area. 

There are various common causes of abdomen pain, like gas, constipation, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome (a common functional disorder affecting the colon means the large intestine. Symptoms include pain/cramping in abdomen, diarrhoea/constipation/alternating diarrhoea and constipation and gas, bloating in abdomen.)

Gastroenteritis (inflammation of stomach and intestine causing diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps that can arise from bacterial or viral infection), gastritis (inflamed stomach), stomach ulcer, food intolerance (like lactose intolerance), and GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease – backflow of stomach acid into the food pipe occurs that causes heartburn), Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory bowel disease which is autoimmune in origin that can cause inflammation in any part of the digestive tract), and celiac disease (a disease of autoimmune origin in which eating gluten which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune reaction in small intestine in person having this disease causing damage of small intestine) are some other causes. 

Infection in the urinary tract, kidney stone, a muscle pull, and abdominal cramps in women during menses are also reasons for abdominal pain. 

The less common causes that require urgent medical help for abdominal pain are inflamed liver (hepatitis), stones in gallbladder, appendicitis (inflamed appendix), kidney infection, heart condition like congestive heart failure, cancer (of stomach, bowels, pancreas), organ rupture like appendix, pneumonia, faecal impaction, intussusception ( a serious condition in which one part of the intestine slides into an adjacent part of the intestine), ectopic pregnancy (when embryo starts to grow in place other than uterus like in fallopian tubes.)

Critical signs that indicate the need for urgent medical help include very intense, unbearable abdomen pain or when abdomen pain is attended with blood in vomiting, blood in stool, high fever, constant vomiting, intensely tender abdomen and trouble in breathing.
