7 Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Thrombosis refers to the formation of blood clots in a blood vessel (either in an artery or a vein). When it forms in arteries, it is called arterial thrombosis. In this case, blood supply to tissues is obstructed leading to damage of the tissue supplied by that particular artery. When a blood clot forms in a vein, it is called venous thrombosis. In such cases the part of the body affected gets congested. There is always a chance that the blood clot or a part of it can break and be carried to some other distant part of the body through circulation. Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis play a supportive role in managing its symptoms, they can be used along with conventional medicine for symptomatic management and gradual recovery.

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Causes

There are three factors that play a role in it. They include hyper-coagulability/thrombophilia, injury to endothelial cells of the blood vessel and disturbed blood flow. Hypercoagulability refers to increased susceptibility or tendency of blood to thrombose. It can be from genetics or some autoimmune disorders. An injury to endothelial cells of the blood vessel can result from surgery, trauma and an infection. 

There are certain risk factors that increase one’s chances to get thrombosis. The factors that increase risk of venous thrombosis are family history of blood clot in vein, injury to vein, immobility after a surgery, being overweight, smoking and having inherited blood clotting disorders. Additionally, females during pregnancy and those taking birth control pills/hormone therapy and elderly people are at risk of venous thrombosis. If we talk about risk factors for arterial thrombosis, it includes family history of arterial thrombosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), increased levels of cholesterol, obesity, smoking, diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, elderly age and immobility as after surgery.

Symptoms

It depends on which blood vessel (artery or vein) of the body is involved and to what organs it supplies blood or collects blood. Some of the main types of arterial and venous thrombosis are as follows with its signs and symptoms:

Venous Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the condition in which a blood clot forms in a deep vein mostly in the vein of lower legs, thighs or pelvis but it can also form in the upper limb.  Swelling, pain, redness and heat in the affected part occurs. It carries a risk of a very serious complication called pulmonary embolism. In this case, the blood clots from the vein mostly from leg breaks and travels through blood circulation to the lungs. It blocks one of the pulmonary arteries of the lungs which is life threatening if not treated urgently. In this case shortness of breath, chest pain and cough appears. Some other symptoms like dizziness, rapid heartbeat, profuse sweating, discoloured skin and swelling, pain in the leg can appear with this.

Portal Vein Thrombosis causes a rise of pressure in the portal vein system and decreases blood supply to the liver. The Portal Vein  carries blood  from the stomach, spleen, pancreas, and intestines to the liver. People with cirrhosis of liver (severe scarring in liver), other liver disease, inflamed pancreas, and those predisposed to develop clot can get this condition. The signs and symptoms that can occur in this condition are pain in upper abdomen, swollen abdomen, fever. In severe cases the spleen can get enlarged, varices in the esophagus or stomach can develop that can lead to bleeding (vomiting of blood, bloody stool), liver pain and jaundice can occur.

Budd-Chiari Syndrome is a rare condition that mostly arises from a blood clot that narrows or blocks the hepatic vein or the hepatic part of inferior vena cava. The signs and symptoms depend upon the severity of the condition. It includes pain in abdomen, weight loss, ascites (build up of fluid in abdomen), gastrointestinal bleeding, enlarged liver, jaundice and enlarged spleen. 

Renal Vein Thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot develops in the renal vein  (that drains deoxygenated blood from the kidneys). It is not a common condition but can cause serious kidney damage. Reduced urine output, pain in lower back, blood in urine, fever, nausea and vomiting are its signs and symptoms. There are also chances of breakage of this clot that can travel to lungs.

Jugular Vein Thrombosis is very uncommon. It can occur from infection, cancer and intravenous drug use. Jugular veins are the veins that bring blood from head and neck to heart. Clots in this vein are often associated with prior venous catheterization at that site. 

Paget-Schroetter Disease, which is also called upper extremity DVT in which blood clot forms in the deep vein of arms. It is a rare type of DVT that mostly occurs in young persons (men are more affected than women with this) after intense exercise or sports activity involving upper arms. Symptoms include pain, swelling, warmth in the arm along with redness or blueness.

Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis is an uncommon type of stroke arising from blood clot blocking the dural venous sinus. In this symptoms that occur include pain in head, vision problem and weakness of face or one side limbs, difficulty speaking and seizure (fit).

Retinal Vein Occlusion occurs when blood flow to a central vein of retina is blocked from a blood clot that can cause critical vision issues. In this glaucoma or detachment of retina can occur.

Arterial Thrombosis

It is also called atherothrombosis. It mostly appears after rupture of fatty deposits in the wall of the blood vessel. 

Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) is when coronary arteries of the heart get blocked with plaque (made of sticky fat, calcium on which  blood cells called platelets  stick and clump together to form blood clots).  This can hinder blood flow to the heart and needs to be treated promptly to prevent permanent heart damage. Its symptoms are pain in the chest felt as tightness, a squeezing sensation or pressure that mostly radiates  to the left arm, shortness of breath, sweating, anxiety, fast heartbeat, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.

Thrombotic Stroke is classified as a medical emergency. In this a blood clot cuts off blood flow to one of the arteries of brain arteries leading to death of brain cells of that part where blood supply is blocked. The signs and symptoms of stroke are weakness/numbness or paralysis of arms, face, legs, problem in speaking, blurred vision, difficulty in walking. 

Limb Ischemia occurs when a blood clot in limbs causes hindrance in its blood supply. Its symptoms are pain, abnormal sensation in limb. The limb is pale and is cold to touch. In late stages numbness is there. Gangrene (death of tissue cells) from loss of blood supply can occur.

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis play a supportive role in managing its symptoms. One can use these medicines along with conventional medicine for symptomatic management and gradual recovery. It is to be noted that thrombosis can have serious consequences so any homeopathic treatment should be started after detailed case analysis. In acute conditions where the symptoms are indicating risk of serious issues like heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism etc, it is strictly advisable to take immediate help from conventional mode of treatment. Homeopathic medicine should be preferred for mild to moderate cases with small sized clots and when there are none of the symptoms that indicate any medical emergency.

12 Effective Homeopathic Remedies for Blocked Ears

Homeopathic remedies for blocked ears target the root cause behind it like ear infection, Meniere’s disease, sinusitis, chronic cold tendency. Blocked or clogged ears is a very common problem in which a person feels congestion or fullness in the ear commonly attended with difficulty in hearing. People may also describe it as pressure in ear or fluid sensation in the ears.

Homeopathic remedies for blocked ears

Causes

Firstly, it can be caused by excessive ear wax. Normally wax is soft and plays a protective role by preventing debris from entering the ears. If the ear wax hardens or if it is over produced then it can cause plugging of the ears. 

Eustachian tube blockage is another cause behind clogged ears. Eustachian tube is a tube that connects the middle ear to nasopharynx. It helps to drain fluid and mucus from the middle ear into the throat from where it is swallowed. It also functions to equalise the pressure between the middle ear and surrounding atmosphere. If the eustachian tube gets blocked then mucus and fluid can’t drain and remains in the middle ear resulting in blockage. This tube can be blocked from nasal allergies, common cold and sinusitis. 

Fluid accumulation can occur in the middle ear (glue ear). People who have nasal allergies and those prone to ear infections are at risk of this. 

Ear infection from bacteria/virus can cause blocked ears. These include outer ear infections (otitis externa) and middle ear infection (otitis media).

Ear blockage can temporarily occur in some people during airplane journeys or driving hilly mountain areas due to sudden atmospheric pressure change outside the body.

It can also occur from a foreign object in the ear which is common in children and  toddlers who may have inserted a small object into the ear.

Meniere’s disease is an inner ear condition having a triad of symptoms that includes vertigo, tinnitus (noises in ear ) and hearing loss. In this feeling of fullness in the ear or plugged / clogged sensation in the ears can attend above symptoms.

Acoustic Neuroma is a benign(non cancerous) tumour that develops on the vestibular nerve leading inner ear to brain. When it is large it tends to put pressure on the nerve of the inner ear leading to clogged ear, hearing loss, noises in the ear, dizziness and balance issues.

Symptoms

Blocked ear is a symptom in itself and can be caused by various conditions. Depending on the cause behind ear blockage various symptoms can attend to it. These include ear pain, fullness in ears, diminished hearing on the affected side, itching in ears, fluid discharge from ear that can be watery, mucus, pus or blood stained and ringing in ears (tinnitus) that can appear with blockage of the ears.

Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Geographic Tongue

Geographic tongue is an inflammatory condition of tongue in which island-shaped patches appear on the tongue which give the tongue a geographic or map-like appearance. It is a harmless condition and doesn’t indicate any serious issue and does not cause any health problems. It is also not contagious hence it doesn’t spread from one person to another through direct contact. Homeopathic medicines for Geographic Tongue are highly effective, they help to reduce the size of present patches in such cases and also halt the further progression of this condition.

Normally small papillae (tiny raised projections) are present on the upper surface of the tongue that gives it a rough texture. These papilla increase the surface area of the tongue and also increase contact area  between the tongue  and food. Taste buds cover the surface papilla  which help in taste perception. These papillae are of four types (fungiform, filiform, foliate, and circumvallate) that vary in location and shape. While in case of geographic tongue the smooth, bald, red patches that appear are actually from absence of these papillae. These patches look like a map giving it the name-geographic tongue.Homeopathic Medicines for Geographic Tongue

Causes

The exact cause behind it is not clearly known. However, some people are predisposed to develop it more than others. Persons who have a family history of this condition are at risk pointing towards links with genetics. People having certain diseases and conditions are at more risk to develop it. 

First among these is psoriasis (It is an auto-immune skin disease in which there occurs inflamed red patches on skin covered by silvery white scales on it. It is thought that geographic tongue is a type of oral form of psoriasis). 

Another medical condition linked with it is Lichen Planus (It is a long term inflammatory condition of the skin and mucous membranes of an autoimmune origin. On skin it presents as purplish, flat-topped papules with white, lacy lines. In the case of mucosal lichen planus white patches having lacy net-like patterns appear mostly though ulcers or red irregular patches can also develop. 

It is thought that geographic tongue may be a type of lichen planus (affecting tongue). Though psoriasis and lichen planus are linked with geographic tongue, more extensive research is required to know the exact link between them. It is also found that people having this condition may have an accompanying complaint of fissured tongue (a benign condition characterised by presence of deep grooves on the tongue). 

Other than these, deficiency of Vitamin B2 is linked with this. Lastly this condition may occur during pregnancy due to a lot of ongoing hormonal changes. It is to be noted that this condition is not associated with any infection or cancer. This condition can affect people of any age group but mostly it affects young adults. Women are more affected with this condition as compared to men. It can worsen during some sort of psychological stress.

Symptoms

In case of geographic tongue uneven, red island-shaped patchy lesions appear on the tongue. They can appear on the top or sides of the tongue. These patches are smooth due to loss of papillae. The red patches may have a white or light coloured border. These can vary in size from case to case and the shape is also variable. The size and shape can also vary among the same person at different times. The patches heal in one place followed by migration to another area of tongue in a few days or weeks. This is why it is also known as benign migratory glossitis.  

In many cases no symptoms appear and only the patchy lesions are present. While in some cases pain and burning sensation can be present in the lesions. These can also be sensitive to spicy or acidic foods, toothpaste, mouthwash or cigarette smoking. This condition can continue for months to years and clears on its own. This can then reappear some time later in life.

10 Effective Homeopathic Remedies for Recurrent Abscess in Axilla

A skin abscess refers to a painful pus filled lump under the skin surface. The abscess contains pus, bacteria and debris. In case of abscess in the axilla, such lumps form under the skin surface of the armpit. Armpit is one among the common locations for formation of abscess in addition to other common sites including skin area around the anus, around a tooth, groin (crease formed where thigh and  abdomen meets) and over tailbone (pilonidal cyst). Homeopathic remedies for recurrent abscess in axilla can benefit people having complaints of recurrent abscess in axilla.Homeopathic Remedies for Recurrent Abscess in Axilla

Causes

Majorly, abscesses form due to infection from bacteria most commonly staphylococcus aureus. This bacteria can enter the skin when the normal skin barrier of the armpit is broken as from a minor skin wound like a little tear / cut or puncture in it. Our body’s disease fighting mechanism starts to work towards killing this bacteria with white blood cells. This causes swelling and inflammation at the infection site from where bacteria entered the skin. Following this a cavity forms leading to origination of an abscess which contains pus formed of bacteria, dead tissue and white blood cells. The main purpose of formation of cavity by body is to contain the bacterial infection to only the area of its entry and prevent its spread to other body parts.

People who sweat excessively in the axilla and don’t clean the area in a good manner have more chances of getting this infection.
Additionally, poor hygiene and not washing armpits regularly results in piling up of dead skin cells that remains another risk factor for an infection.
Other than this, frequently shaving the underarm area is also a risk factor. Blockage in the sweat gland, oil gland (sebaceous gland) or a hair follicle also carry chances to form an abscess. Sometimes they can form after a surgical procedure also. Around 10% of the people who have abscess in axilla carry a chance of its recurrence. Firstly, a weak immune system raises risk of bacterial infection and recurrent abscess.

Next, people having some medical conditions I.e. diabetes, eczema and allergies are more predisposed to have repeated abscess formation. Other risk factors that predispose towards repetitive abscess formation includes obesity, alcoholism, sickle cell disease, cancer, HIV, chronic steroid treatment and chemotherapy.

Symptoms

In the case of abscess of the axilla, a swollen mass appears in the armpit under the skin. It is red, painful and tender. It is warm to touch. Itching can be present on or around the abscess.

Causes 

A person gets this infection from accidental ingestion of eggs of these worms. These  eggs are usually present in soil which is contaminated by human faeces having these worms. These can be present on the fruits and raw vegetables contaminated by soil having these eggs. The contamination of vegetables and fruits can happen when human faeces having this worm’s egg tend to enter the soil in fields due to poor sanitary facilities. If a person eats unwashed vegetables or fruit   carrying its eggs then they tend to get infected. He may also get infected from drinking water contaminated by these eggs. Children also tend to get infected if they put their hands in their mouth without proper washing, following playing in contaminated soil. 

Symptoms 

Many  people having this infection have no symptoms. But in case of moderate to heavy infestation of this worm, complaints of intestine or lungs tend to appear. In heavy infestation cases serious symptoms and complications can also occur.

Symptoms that can arise from roundworm in lungs include cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, blood in mucus, discomfort in chest and fever.

In case of roundworm in intestines the symptoms that appear are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, loose stool (diarrhoea), sometimes blood in stool, loss of appetite, weight loss, malabsorption of nutrients leading to growth impairment, fatigue / tiredness, passage of a worm in stool or vomit and fever.

Complications 

The complications don’t arise in mild cases. The complications can arise in cases of heavy worm infestation. The first complication includes decrease in appetite, impaired nutrition due to poor absorption of nutrients from digested food. This can affect growth of a child. Second complication that can arise is blockage or perforation of a part of the intestine. The blockage tends to appear from a mass of worms. Lastly, worms can block ducts of the liver or pancreas.

12 Natural Homeopathic Medicines to Treat Calf Pain 

Calf pain refers to pain in the back side of the lower leg. Two largest muscles in the back of the leg (gastrocnemius and soleus muscles) are together known as calf muscle. This calf muscle is attached to the heel by achilles tendon (tendon is a strong cord of fibrous connective tissue that connects a muscle to a bone.) Homeopathic treatment for calf pain helps in cases of muscle strain, cramps, achilles tendinitis, trauma, sciatica, varicose veins and more. Homeopathic treatment for calf pain

Causes

There are various reasons behind calf pain ranging from  mild (like over use , stress, strain of calf muscle) to critical conditions (like deep vein thrombosis – DVT) that require urgent medical attention. It can arise from conditions affecting calf muscles and from some of the conditions affecting the blood vessels, nerves and other structures around the calf muscle

Calf muscle conditions – over use, over stress and strain of calf muscle, calf muscle cramp, calf muscle injury, calf muscle pull, and calf muscle  tear  or rupture can cause calf pain. Muscle cramp means sudden, involuntary, painful contraction of muscle. They can follow overuse of calf muscle, doing excessive exercise or starting some new exercise apart from normal routine ones. Sometimes they can arise from dehydration or some serious medical conditions like kidney failure, diabetes and underactive thyroid also. Muscle  strains can follow overuse of muscle, fatigue and suddenly increasing exercise that involves legs like running.

It can also arise in sciatica (refers to pain beginning in the lower back that travels down the back side of the leg). It happens when the sciatic nerve that controls lower leg muscles gets pinched along its pathway.

Achilles tendinitis is the inflammation of the achilles tendon  that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It follows when the achilles tendon is overused or over stressed. It results in pain in the back of the leg along with swelling and sometimes tightness of calf muscle.

The pain can also appear in diabetic neuropathy (a complication of diabetes in which nerve damage of the feet, legs, arms and hands occur.

Next, it can also arise from arterial claudication when there is narrowing or some blockage in the arteries which supply blood  to the legs. Or it can result from trauma, a fall, or blow to the calf region.

Varicose veins are the enlarged, twisted engorged veins that mostly develop in legs due to improper functioning of valves in the legs leading to back flow of blood. These can cause pain, aching throbbing, and cramping in the back of legs.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition that arises if a blood clot forms in the deep vein in the arm or leg. It is a serious condition requiring immediate medical help from conventional mode of treatment. 

Bakers cyst or popliteal cyst (fluid filled lump developing behind the knee). It can burst and release fluid in calf muscle in its upper part and cause pain.

Compartment syndrome is a serious condition that follows a trauma or severe injury in calf area

Symptoms

Nerve Damage – Supportive Treatment With Homeopathy

Our body has billions of nerves. They function to carry messages between the brain and rest of the body in a well coordinated way for smooth functioning of the body. Among the nerves some carry messages from brain to muscles for body movement and some carry messages about temperature, pain, pressure and other helps for proper vital functions like breathing, heartbeat, senses. But when the nerves are damaged then there appears trouble in communication between nerves and brain as damaged nerves are unable to carry messages to and from the brain. This results in various signs and symptoms like numbness, tingling, pain, muscle weakness, balance issues etc. Homeopathic remedies for nerve damage can help halt further progression and give symptomatic relief to a person.Homeopathic remedies for nerve damage

Causes 

Nerve damage can arise from various reasons. 

Firstly, it can arise from excessive pressure on nerve, nerve compression or nerve pinching. Some of its examples are  sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome Sciatica refers to pain running down from lower back to the back side of leg from compressed, pinched, irritated or damaged sciatic nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome Is a condition that arises from compression of the median nerve in the wrist that presents with pain, numbness and tingling in the thumb, index finger, middle finger and the thumb side of the ring finger.

Second reason behind it is diabetes (it mostly damages sensory nerves resulting in numbness). 

Next it can occur in autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, guillain barre syndrome, myasthenia gravis. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive disorder in which the immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath of the nerve fibres due to which the communication between  brain and the rest of the body is disrupted. Guillain barre syndrome is a rare neurological disorder  in which the immune system attacks the nerves that are located outside of the brain and spinal cord (means peripheral nerves). It usually  begins with tingling and weakness in feet and legs followed by its spread to the upper body and arms. Myasthenia gravis is a neuromuscular disorder that causes weakness of skeletal muscles in varying degrees.

It can also occur in diseases like motor neuron disease (a group of conditions that leads to loss of function of nerves in the spine and brain), lyme disease  (an infectious disease which is caused by a bite from ticks infected with any of the four species of bacteria known as  Borrelia), hepatitis C, HIV and cancer. 

Next nerve damage can arise from injury or trauma to the nerve as in car accidents. 

Excessive smoking and alcohol drinking also can lead to nerve damage. 

Other than this it may follow use of some medicines and toxic drugs. It can result from some vitamin deficiencies. Apart from above it can be a part of ageing. There are many causes for nerve damage however in many cases around 30 % of the cases no cause is ruled out behind nerve damage.

Symptoms 

The signs and symptoms in case of the nerve damage usually develop gradually. Numbness of hands and feet is often the first symptom that appears when sensory nerves are damaged. Tingling or burning sensation can also attend numbness. The numbness and tingling may radiate from hands or feet into arms or legs. Next common symptom of nerve damage is pain generally in hands and feet. The pain here is a very sharp, stabbing, or burning type of pain. Third symptom of nerve damage is muscle weakness or loss of muscle control, paralysis and with time muscle wasting (atrophy) can arise. Difficulty walking, issues with fine motor skills like gripping something can arise here. These symptoms arise when there is some damage to motor nerves that connect the central nervous system and muscles in the body which are linked with the ability to move. Another symptom is a sharp pain beginning in the lower back and travelling down the back side of the leg (sciatica). Burning, or tingling sensation can also appear over this area. This happens when the sciatic nerve gets compressed or damaged from slip disc, injury, some diseases like diabetes.

Muscle cramps and twitching, excessive sweating or less sweating, intense headaches are other symptoms of nerve damage. Intense headache here can be a sign of occipital neuralgia that  occurs when a nerve in the neck gets pinched causing pain in the upper neck and back of the head. Overactive bladder ( a condition in which a person has frequent, sudden urgency to urinate) can also result from nerve damage. Apart from above loss of balance and coordination while walking  can arise that carries risk of stumbling accidents and falling leading to injury.

8 Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Alopecia Barbae 

Alopecia barbae is a form of alopecia areata which affects hair follicles of the beard. Alopecia areata is a condition in which hair falls out in small, coin – sized, round spots/ patches. Alopecia areata tends to affect the scalp though it can also affect areas like beard, eyebrows etc. Alopecia areata is among the most common forms of hair loss seen by dermatologists. When it affects the beard area, it is referred to as alopecia barbae. Alopecia areata is considered to be an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune disease the immune cells by mistake tend to attack and destroy the body’s healthy cells and tissues. In case of alopecia areata the immune cell attacks hair follicles. Homeopathic medicines for alopecia barbae help in a very natural way by moderating the immune system which is causing the damage to hair follicles. Homeopathic Medicines for Alopecia Barbae 

Causes

As described above alopecia barbae is autoimmune in origin in which the immune cells due to a misdirected response attack the hair follicles in the beard region. Misdirected responses of these cells lead to weakening of the roots of hair causing patchy hair loss. Immune cells are the cells that normally help to fight and exclude infectious agents like bacteria, virus, parasites etc. from the body. But in alopecia barbae these cells consider the hair to be something foreign and harmful for the body thus begins the destruction process as a part of self defence.
Genetics is also thought to play a role in causing alopecia barbae. So people having someone in the family having complaints of alopecia are at high risk to develop the same.

Other than this if a person himself or someone in his blood relation has asthma, allergies or some autoimmune disease (like lupus, psoriasis, thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes) are at increased risk of alopecia barbae.

Apart from the above, stress either on psychological level or physical level is also associated with alopecia. Stress, anxiety , depression are linked with it. It can also get triggered with use of certain medicines. Next this condition can arise from hormonal imbalance.
Imbalance between testosterone, androgen and dihydrotestosterone hormones can cause hair loss from the beard. Increased production of a female hormone estrogen can also interrupt normal growth patterns.
Excessive intake of alcohol and smoking are also linked with this hair loss. Smoking mainly causes shrinking of blood vessels which reduces the flow of blood to face and can lead to hair loss from the beard area. Alopecia barbae mostly affects males between the age of 30 yrs and 40 yrs.

Symptoms 

Among all the hair follicles of beard each and every individual hair follicle goes through a growth phase, resting phase and falling phase which is independent of any other hair follicle. So when a hair follicle is in resting phase it eventually falls out which is normal. With time new hair grows in its place. It is absolutely normal to lose a few hair strands daily due to this natural cycle that each and every hair follicle follows. But if the hair is losing from beard in bunches and additionally new growth is not occurring then it may be an indication of alopecia barbae needing treatment.

Alopecia barbae begins as hair loss occurring in small circular patches. The hair present at the edges of these spots may be white. Touching the skin from where hair has come out usually feels smooth but in rare cases it can be rough too. These bald spots on skin may be inflamed, red along with irritation sometimes. Near to the bald patch exclamation mark hair can be present. These hairs are thick at the top and narrower or thin close to base or as they enter skin.

Initially hair loss in this begins in areas along the jawline. The hair loss can occur in the area around the cheek, mouth, chin or neck region. Itching, tingling, burning sensation and pain can appear on the particular area of beard before loss of hair occurs. There may be one or multiple patches of hair loss varying from case to case. The patches are small in beginning that enlarges with time and also the patches tend to overlap each other as time progresses. A person can also lose all hair from beard in this condition. The speed at which hair loss occurs varies from case to case. In some cases hair loss appears suddenly in a few days and while in others it can be seen to occur over a few weeks. In some cases the hair loss is limited to the beard area while in others hair loss can also be present on the scalp along with beard.

Homeopathic Medicines for Alopecia Barbae 

Homeopathy offers a very effective treatment for cases of alopecia barbae. these medicines firstly aim to halt the further increase in the size of bald spots already present and also the formation of any new patch of hair loss in the beard area.

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. 

Symptoms 

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.
