11 Supportive Homeopathic Remedies for Hydronephrosis

Hydronephrosis refers to swelling of the kidney that arises when urine is unable to drain properly from the kidney to the bladder. This results in its build up in the kidney. It mostly occurs in one kidney but may develop in both. Homeopathic remedies for hydronephrosis play a supportive role in managing cases of hydronephrosis and providing symptomatic relief. These should be taken only under the guidance of a homeopath, along with  conventional treatment. Hydronephrosis homeopathy

Under normal conditions, urine is formed in the kidneys then it passes down through the ureter into the urinary bladder where it stores until it is voided out of the body through urethra. But in case the urine remains in the kidney, or back flows in the kidney, then there are chances of development of hydronephrosis.

Causes

Most times, hydronephrosis can result from any sort of blockage or obstruction in the urinary tract. Blockage mostly in the ureters (I.e. the tubes that connect kidneys to the bladder and drain urine from the kidneys) lead to this condition. This blockage usually arises from kidney stone, but can also arise from scar and blood clot. Due to blockage in the ureter the urine may backflow up in the kidney leading to its swelling. Other reasons  for blockage include a twist or bend in the meeting point of ureter and pelvis of kidney (this junction is known as ureteropelvic junction), an enlarged prostate (BPH – benign prostate hyperplasia) in men that can cause compression and obstruction of the urethra, tumours in pelvis can put pressure on the urinary system and pregnancy that may lead to compression of urethra from growing foetus. Sometimes it can also arise from ureter narrowing due to some injury or an infection.

Next it may occur from vesicoureteral reflux. In this reflux the muscular valve present at the junction of the urethra and bladder does not work correctly. This leads to backward flow of urine into the kidney. Normally urine flows down from kidney to ureter then bladder and urethra. When there occurs a backward flow of urine which is the wrong direction of urine flow then it causes problems with emptying of the kidney resulting in its swelling. Other than these hydronephrosis may also occur from some problem or damage to the nerves around the bladder, and birth defects that cause structural abnormalities of the junctions between kidney, ureter and bladder that hinder normal drainage of urine.

Symptoms

It may not always cause symptoms. When the symptoms arise they include frequent urination, urgent need to urinate, pain with urination, incomplete voiding, or bladder emptying. Other symptoms include  pain in flank, or back that may radiate to the lower abdomen or groin, nausea and vomiting, fever. In babies usually no symptoms arise. When they arise they include not feeding well, reduced energy levels, irritability, repeated urinary tract infection that may present with only  unexplained fever, abdomen pain, blood in urine, fever.

Hydronephrosis increases the risk of urinary tract infections (UTI). Some of the signs and symptoms of urinary infection includes pain / burning with urination (dysuria), frequent / constant urge to urinate, urgency to pass urine, scanty urine, a weak urine stream, pain in the bladder, cloudy urine, pus / blood in urine,  lower abdominal pain, flank pain, back pain, a fever, chills, nausea, vomiting.

If UTI is not treated well in time then there are chances of development of serious conditions like pyelonephritis (infection of kidney). If the hydronephrosis is severe then it can lead to permanent kidney damage.

Homeopathic Remedies for Hydronephrosis

Homeopathy plays a supportive role in managing cases of hydronephrosis and providing symptomatic relief. These medicines can be used along with conventional mode of treatment for reducing kidney swelling and its symptom management. These medicines also help in managing cases of urinary tract infections.

Post Covid Syndrome – Homeopathy for Support & Symptom Management 

Covid-19 is an infectious disease caused by the new coronavirus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, or SARS-CoV-2). This virus strain was identified in December 2019. This disease has been declared as a pandemic in March 2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO). Homeopathy for post Covid syndrome can be of great help in managing the lingering symptoms of the infection. Homeopathy for Post Covid Syndrome

It spreads from person to person directly by inhaling the respiratory droplets released from an infected person via coughs, sneezes or talks.  It can also spread indirectly if a person touches any surface that has been contaminated by this virus and then touches his or her mouth, nose or eyes without first washing and disinfecting the hands properly. 

The symptoms of Covid -19 vary from mild to severe in intensity. The symptoms tend to appear between 2 – 14 days after the virus exposure. The most common symptoms of Covid – 19 includes fever, cough and fatigue (tiredness). Loss of smell and taste may be the early symptoms in many cases. Its other symptoms include difficulty in breathing, body aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat, runny nose or congested nose, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. The elderly people and those already having certain health conditions (like diabetes, serious heart disease, lung disease, cancer, asthma and chronic kidney disease) are at high risk of developing severe symptoms and serious complications. 

Post Covid Syndrome and Its Symptoms

There is evidence that few people who suffered from Covid -19 may experience some long-term, debilitating symptoms that occur after having recovered from the acute infection. Though recovered from the initial stage, they struggle to overcome the lingering health issues that follow it.

They may linger on for weeks to months. These symptom sets are together referred to as post covid syndrome.  Some of the symptoms that linger on are quite similar to the ones that occur in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). As per a study it is estimated that around 87 % of patients after initial recovery from COVID still have one persistent symptom. Further among the various symptoms it is seen that about 60% of people after recovering from acute infection of Covid-19 still face complaints of persistent fatigue. Though this syndrome can affect people of any age, but in elderly and those having health issues (like diabetes, hypertension and weak immune system) the effects persist for long.

Other than above symptoms it may also cause inflammation in the brain, heart damage, lung damage and stroke.

Croup which is also known as “Laryngotracheobronchitis” is an infection of the upper airway that occurs in younger children. It is usually caused by a virus that causes inflammation and swelling of the larynx (voice box), trachea (windpipe) and bronchial tubes (that carry air to and from the lungs).

15 Remedies for Homeopathic Treatment Of Otomycosis

The term ‘Otomycosis’ is formed by joining two words ‘oto’ that means ear and ‘mycosis’ which means fungus. So, otomycosis refers to a fungal infection of the outer ear canal (a  pathway that runs from outer ear to middle ear). It is also known as Mycotic Otitis Externa. It leads to inflammation of the ear canal along with dryness, itching and offensive discharge (otorrhea) from the ear. Homeopathic treatment of Otomycosis boosts the body’s self healing mechanism to fight with fungal infection and exclude it from the body to ensure a natural recovery.

It is more common in warm, tropical countries because warmth provides a favourable environment for the fungi to grow. People who do swimming frequently are predisposed to get this infection. 

Causes  Homeopathic Treatment Of Otomycosis

It is caused by fungal infection. Among the various types of fungi, the ones that most commonly cause it includes Aspergillus Niger, Aspergillus Fumigatus and Candida Albicans. In some cases bacteria can cause superadded infections in these cases. People who do swimming in contaminated water and those who do surfing  are at most risk of getting this infection. The weakened immune system also makes one prone to get it. Apart from above the other risk factors include skin problems (like eczema), injury / trauma in the ear like from using ear buds, diabetes mellitus and lessened amount of cerumen means the earwax (it is produced in ear that help to prevent fungal or bacterial agents to clog the ears and prevents drying out of the ear), malnourishment that cause deficiency of the mineral and vitamins in body causing weak immunity, use of antibiotics for long periods of time and prolonged cortisone therapy.

Symptoms 

It usually affects one side of the ear but in some cases can also affect both the ears. The symptoms of this infection includes itching in the ear, pain in the ear, discharge from the ears (that may be yellow, white, green, gray or black in colour) and flakiness of the skin. The ear discharge has an offensive smell. The outer ear canal is inflamed, red and swollen. Other symptoms include fullness sensation in the ear, ringing in the ears and hearing problems.

Its chances are high in summers because hot and humid weather favours the growth of fungi.

Complications

It doesn’t lead to any major complication but in some of cases the complications can occur if not treated properly in time. The chance of complications is more in people with weak immune systems and the ones who have diabetes. The complication that can occur is perforation of the eardrum if the fungal infection goes further inside the ear from the external ear. Perforation of the ear can cause hearing loss.

Natural Homeopathic Medicines For Water Brash

Water brash also called acid brash is one of the symptoms that a person having gastroesophageal reflux may experience. In a person having GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disorder) the stomach acid backs up into the food pipe even up to the throat. This may lead to production of an increased amount of saliva. Homeopathic medicines for water brash are an effective and natural way to treat its root causes.

A water brash occurs when stomach acid mixes with saliva and rises to the throat. It mostly has a sour taste. The person may also feel heartburn with this due to irritation by the stomach acid.

Causes
Homeopathic Medicines For Water Brash

Water brash occurs in case of GERD. When we eat food it goes down through the Esophagus (food pipe) into the stomach. When the food reaches the lower end of the food pipe the muscle called Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) relaxes and opens and the food enters into the stomach. After the food has reached the stomach the LES closes. This prevents the food and the acid in the stomach from moving up back into the food pipe. In the case of GERD, this LES gets weak, relaxes and gets open abnormally causing back flow of the stomach acid into the food pipe. It results in symptoms of heartburn, water brash and some other symptoms related to acid reflux.

There are some of the factors that increase the risk of GERD and hence its symptoms including water brash. Firstly, it includes obesity (obese people have an increase in the internal pressure within the abdomen from excessive fat. It leads to back up of stomach acid). Second risk factor is smoking  that leads to relaxation of LES from its nicotine content resulting in back flow of stomach acid. Thirdly, taking certain medicines ( like NSAID’s means non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, birth control pills and some of the antidepressants) also predisposes a person to acid reflux. Another factor is the risk of acid reflux getting high during pregnancy (this is from changes in the hormones that relax LES and pressure to the stomach caused by growing foetus. Both these factors combined leads to rising of stomach acid back into the food pipe and throat). Hiatus Hernia is another factor that increases the risk of GERD. Hiatus hernia refers to a condition in which the upper part of the stomach bulges out through the hiatus opening in the diaphragm which is muscle that separates chest from the abdomen.

Other than above there are certain food substances (spicy food, fried food, chocolates, citrus fruits etc) that trigger symptoms of acid reflux. Taking alcohol, coffee, stress, lying immediately after taking meals are some factors that tend to make its symptoms worse.

Symptoms

Water brash is one symptom that appears along with other symptoms of GERD. These other symptoms include heartburn (burning sensation felt in the food pipe behind the sternum I.e the breastbone), difficulty in swallowing food, sensation of food sticking in the food pipe, chest pain, sour taste in mouth, nausea and vomiting.
