Filariasis – Homeopathy Offers a Supportive Treatment

Filariasis is a parasitic infection caused by filarial worms  (any of a group of parasitic worms belonging to family Filariidae.) This infection is transmitted through bite of an insect (like black flies and mosquitoes)  who are carrying this infection. This condition is prevalent in areas of Africa, Asia, Central and South America and in India. Homeopathic Medicines for Lymphatic Filariasis can be taken along with conventional treatment for symptom relief. Filariasis

The mosquitoes that spread this infection through the larva of this worm, when they bite a person who is already carrying worms of this infection. These infected mosquitoes then can pass the larva of these worms to another healthy human being through a bite. When an infected mosquito bites healthy human beings the larva of these worms sticks on their skin from where they find a way in his/her body. In the body they enter into lymph vessels through blood stream and grow into adult worms.
Adult worms live in the lymphatic vessels and these worms have a lifespan of around 5 to 7 years in the human body during which they tend to produce millions of microscopic larvae thereby causing disturbance in normal functioning of the lymphatic system. The  lymphatic system functions to maintain fluid balance in the body and help in fighting infections. Any disturbance in this system leads to fluid buildup and swelling of the tissue and also results in lowered immunity. Among hundreds of species of filarial worms around 8 to 9 are known to cause infections in human beings.

Classification and Symptoms of Filariasis

This parasitic disease is classified depending on the body area affected by these worms. 

  1. Firstly, it includes lymphatic filariasis that affects lymphatic system and lymph nodes and causes elephantiasis. The worms that cause it are – Wuchereria bancrofti (most common cause) , Brugia malayi and Brugia timori. 

In case of lymphatic filariasis a disease called elephantiasis mainly occurs. In this disease the filarial worm lodges in the lymphatic system causing its damage and blockage and hinders the flow of lymph through lymphatic vessels. This results in backup of the lymphatic fluid, which causes swelling. 

Many people having this infection may not show symptoms in initial stages. In others it causes lymphedema build up of fluid in soft tissue of limbs from blockage in lymph system. Elephantiasis occurs when the filarial worms gets lodged in lymphatic system and blocks flow of lymph. In people whom symptoms appear mainly include swelling and abnormal enlargement of the legs, arms, breasts or genitals (mainly scrotum in males and vulva in females). Among these sites the legs are the most commonly affected area in elephantiasis. Swelling may be attended with pain. The skin becomes thick, dry, tough and hard that resembles an elephant’s skin hence given the name elephantiasis. The skin may have cracks also. The skin also gets darker than normal, and sometimes gets pitted and ulcerated. There may be difficulty to move the affected body parts resulting in disability. Elephantiasis also cause psychological effects and the sufferer may get emotional distress, anxiety and depression due to worry about their ugly and disfiguring appearance

In some people fever and chills may be present. People with elephantiasis also have impaired immune function which makes them quite prone to get secondary bacterial infections of the skin. The symptoms in elephantiasis develop very gradually and it may take around years to develop. In the infected persons, the signs and symptoms of this condition may not come up until the disease has reached its last stage.

  1. Second is subcutaneous filariasis is the one where the subcutaneous skin layer (layer immediately under the skin) and eye are affected. The worms involved in this type are loa loa, onchocerca volvulus and Mansonella streptocerca. The symptoms that occur in this are skin rash, river blindness and hyperpigmented or depigmented spots on the skin
  2. Lastly, it includes serous cavity filariasis in which the serous cavity of the abdomen is infected. This one is caused by its worm types called Mansonella perstans and Mansonella ozzardi. In this skin rash, abdomen pain, joint inflammation (arthritis) and ascites (fluid build up in abdomen) arise.

Top 10 Homeopathic Medicines for Hangnails That Work

A hangnail is a very common condition in which tiny, torn skin pieces or tag hang loosely around the fingernail. In this the skin separates partially from the surface around the nail and partially remains attached at the base of the nail. This condition can very rarely develop around the toenail. Homeopathic medicines for hangnails are also very useful to reduce swelling and redness in case of inflamed nails.

The term hangnail is a misnomer (means an inappropriate term) because it is a skin condition and doesn’t indicate any condition that affects nails despite its name. Homeopathic Medicines for Hangnails

Causes

Hangnails arise when there are cracks around the nails. It also commonly results from dryness of skin of the hands for eg, it carries more chances to happen in winter season that makes the skin dry. Repeated hand washing or excessive exposure of hands to water like during dish cleaning or excessive swimming in chlorinated water also makes skin dry and makes a person prone to get hangnails. 

Next they can arise from injury (for eg from excessive finger picking) to skin close to nail and nail biting. It can also arise from protein deficiency. Some people in certain occupations are at its risk like cooks, doctors who tend to wash their hands quite frequently. Other than this excessive use of detergents, nail polish, hand sanitizer also tend to make skin dry and predispose to hangnails. 

Symptoms 

In these cases a small, torn piece of skin is visible around the nail.  There may not be any attending symptoms in many cases while in other cases irritation, discomfort, pain and tenderness can be present in this area. The pain can arise from touching it or when they caught on clothes. 
If a person pulls or bites the hangnail then it can lead to bleeding and raise chances of infection. The hangnails occur around the base or side of the nail. The blood vessels and nerve endings are abundant in this area. Hangnails can get inflamed and when that happens they press and irritate the nerve endings that worsens the pain further. Redness, swelling along the side or bottom of the nail occurs if it gets inflamed. Hangnails can also get infected from bacteria or fungus. In such cases along with redness, swelling, heat around nails pus may form around the infected area surrounding the nail. Pain may occur around the nail or whole finger in such cases. The infection that occurs on the skin around the nails is known as paronychia. The skin around the nails is called cuticle and it functions to protect nails from outside infections. When it gets damaged, infection occurs from entry of bacteria or fungus from the damaged site. If hands are not kept clean and a person keeps touching dirty surfaces, then the infection can get worse. In some cases the infection travels to the nail bed where nail colour gets changed and nail becomes weak, brittle and distorted in shape. Rarely in very severe cases there are chances that the infection can be spread to other parts of the body.

Sleepwalking – Homeopathy Offers Natural Solution

Sleep walking, medically known as somnambulism or noctambulism, is a disorder in which a person gets up and walks around at night or performs other activities when he is asleep. It usually occurs early in the night during a period of deep sleep. Homeopathic remedies for sleepwalking work gradually to reduce the episodes of sleepwalking.

Homeopathic remedies for sleepwalking

Though it can occur in people of any age group but tend to be more common in children as compared to adults. Children usually outgrow it by puberty but in some children it can continue in adulthood. 

Causes 

The exact cause behind it is still not clear yet. But it is related to genetics as it tends to run in families. A person having someone in the family who has sleepwalking is at risk to develop the same. Having a history of sleepwalking in one or both parents raises the risk much more.

Next, there are few factors that are linked with this condition. These include sleep deprivation,  interrupted sleep, changed sleep schedule, sudden/abrupt waking from sleep, stress, anxiety, excessive tiredness, use of some medicines (like sedatives, hypnotics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, antihistamines), use of alcohol, use of recreational drugs and fever.

Some of the medical conditions  can also trigger it. The medical conditions firstly include GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease which refers to frequent back flow of the stomach acid into the food pipe that mainly causes heartburn felt as a burning sensation behind the sternum).
Next medical condition is OSA (obstructive sleep apnea – a serious sleep disorder in which breathing stops momentarily many times during sleep. OSA happens from relaxation of throat muscles  during sleep that block the airway and causes obstruction for air to enter lungs).

Next condition that is related to this RLS (Restless legs syndrome – a condition in which a person desires to move the legs from discomforting sensations in the lower limbs). Other medical conditions that are associated with this includes night time asthma, heart rhythm problems, migraine headaches, tourette syndrome (a condition in which involuntary multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic arise. Tics refers to habitual, spasmodic contractions / movements of muscles occurring quickly that can’t be easily controlled), night time seizures (fits), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).

Lastly, some psychological disorders are linked with this. These include (like PTSD – post traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks and schizophrenia). PTSD is a psychological disorder that develop after some traumatic event in life for eg, child abuse, sexual assault etc. Schizophrenia is a psychological disorder in which hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking and behaviour occurs. Delay in the maturity of the CNS central nervous system is also linked with sleep walking problems. Other than these, the rate of sleepwalking is higher in children who have complaints of bedwetting and night terror.

In case of women hormonal changes play a role in sleepwalking (the chances are more in them before the onset menstrual cycle).

Symptoms 

Sleepwalking most commonly occurs in the early part of night in the first few hours of sleep.  In this a person may just sit up in bed and look around. He may be confused and disoriented  with this. In other cases the person gets out of bed and starts to walk around.

Sometimes he may say senseless things at that time. There is difficulty in arousing them during an episode. They may even violently attack the person trying to awake them. Some people with sleep walking may wake screaming and frightened if they have an attending complaint of night terrors.  Sometimes they may start doing some work like start eating, getting dressed, open cupboards etc. 

They may even walk out of the house. Some may even start to drive a car. An episode of sleepwalking usually lasts for some minutes, mostly less than 10 minutes but it can in some cases last may last longer than this time. People having it may get out of bed, walk about and then again come back to bed and sleep again. In the morning they don’t remember anything about night’s occurrence of sleep walking. They may feel excessively sleepy during the day from disturbed night sleep. Persons having this complaint can injure them while walking as from bumping in a door / furniture or falling from stairs.

Homeopathy for Low Milk Supply During Breastfeeding

Low milk supply during breastfeeding means a mother is not being able to produce enough milk in a sufficient quantity needed to meet nutritional demand of her baby. It is also known as hypogalactia or hypo galactorrhea. Agalactia is a term used for absence or failure of milk secretion after giving birth. Homeopathy for low milk supply during breastfeeding uses medicines of natural origin that are very safe to use without any side effects.

Homeopathy for Low Milk Supply During Breastfeeding

There are few things that don’t point towards low milk supply as lay man may relate to from misconceptions. These includes – a baby is not getting enough if he is nursing frequently, if breast isn’t leaking milk, breast suddenly became softer, baby has increase frequency and lengths of feeding session, baby is fussy, if baby takes  bottle of formula milk even soon after nursing, when women do not feel a let down sensation or on pumping very little milk comes out. They are not related to low milk supply and are not valid ways to check if milk supply is low or not.

If a baby is gaining weight when exclusively breast fed then it means the milk supply is sufficient for his growth. Some of the actual signs that indicate that baby is not getting sufficient milk needed for growth are poor weight gain, not enough wet  diapers (less than 8 – 10 diapers) in a day, have signs of dehydration (like lethargy, dark rings around eyes, sunken fontanelle, yellowish urine), getting weaker, or signs of not growing well.

Causes 

It can firstly arise if breastfeeding is started late after childbirth. Next it can happen if the baby is not latching properly. It means the baby is not sucking properly to draw enough milk from the breast. If the breast milk is not removed time to time then its production reduces. Next it can arise if the baby is taking infrequent feeds or taking feed for a short time approx less than 5 minutes. This is because frequent extraction or draining of milk from breast boosts or triggers milk supply but allowing the milk to remain in the breast for long decreases milk supply. Use of pacifiers and supplementing feeding with infant formula milk unnecessarily in initial weeks also decrease milk supply. Starting breastfeeding as soon as possible after childbirth, making sure the baby is latching properly during breastfeeding, frequently breastfeeding around every 2 – 3 hrs during initial weeks, avoiding bottles and pacifiers in the early week can help in cases having above reasons. 

Premature birth, jaundice, tongue tie in baby also tend to decrease milk supply because with these conditions baby can’t suck properly leading to low milk supply.  

Other than above factors related to low milk supply are stress, exhaustion, not taking enough sleep, not drinking enough water, use of certain medicines (like zyrtec D),  use of hormonal pills, history of previous breast surgery, injury to breast, underdeveloped (hypoplastic breast) being underweight or obese, drinking alcohol, smoking and taking excessive caffeine.   

Apart from above there can be a medical reason which is causing true low milk supply. In such cases the medical reasons have to be treated to establish good milk supply. The medical reasons include hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), anaemia, post partum haemorrhage (Blood loss of more than 500 ml to 1000 ml of blood within the first 24 hours after childbirth), Hypopituitarism (decreased secretion of hormones by the pituitary gland), hyperprolactinemia (medical condition with deficiency of prolactin hormone). Prolactin is lactogenic hormone or milk hormone which is responsible for breast growth during pregnancy and for breast milk production after delivery for breast feeding the baby), recent mastitis (inflammation of breast), retained placenta, breast cancer,  pregnancy induced high blood pressure, insulin dependent diabetes which is poorly controlled.

Causes

The main cause behind it is infection of skin around the nail. The infection can occur from bacteria or candida yeast. In some cases both these infectious agents together result in this infection. Mostly acute paronychia is caused by bacteria and the chronic paronychia by a yeast infection. The bacteria involved in it mainly includes staphylococcus aureus and streptococcus pyogenes. The bacteria tend to enter the area around the nail when there is some trauma, injury or damage to the skin in this area. The skin damage can occur from nail biting, picking or chewing the nails and a splinter. It can also get injured accidentally from some of the tools used for manicures. Cutting the nails very short also predispose towards this infection. People having hangnails or ingrown nails are also at risk of this infection. Hangnails refers to tiny skin which is torn and hanging loose around the nail either fingernail or toenail that carries a risk of getting infected. Ingrown nails is a very common and painful nail disease in which the corner of the nails mostly the toenail enters and grows into the skin.

Another risk factor is excessive exposure of hands to moisture (like in people who are working in water for long hours or who do repeated hand washing) and frequent contact of hands or feet with chemicals. This destroys the skin that surrounds the edges of the fingernail or toenail called cuticle. This favours an ideal environment for bacteria and yeast to multiply and cause infection.  People having diabetes and those with suppressed immune systems (drug induced) are also at risk of it.

Symptoms

In these cases redness appears on the skin around the nail. Swelling, heat, pain and tenderness of the skin around the nail is also present. This area can also be itchy. In this affected area pus filled eruptions can develop. The nail may thicken, harden, get damaged and deformed along with change in the shape and colour. The nail texture can also change.

Top 8 Natural Remedies for Homeopathic Treatment for Bruises 

Bruises refers to black or blue discolouration on the skin from an injury (like a fall or bump against something) that causes damage to small blood vessels in the skin. The blood that leaks from damaged blood vessels deposits near the skin’s surface causing blue, black spots. Bruise is also known as contusion and ecchymosis. When bleeding from ruptured blood vessels collects beneath the skin it is referred to as ecchymosis or subcutaneous bruise. If the bruise arises in underlying muscles then it is called  Intramuscular bruises. Bruises can be internal too that occur in deep tissues, organs and bones. Homeopathic treatment for bruises aids the healing of the ruptured vessels, reduce discoloration and manage pain, soreness and tenderness in these cases.Homeopathic treatment for bruises

Causes 

Bruises mostly appear from an injury; mainly blunt trauma like bumping by mistake against something (like a door, bed) or from a blow, fall or something hitting you. It can also arise in people who do intense exercise, or from sport injuries., car accidents, hypodermic needle injection and blood drawing. 

Next it can occur if a person has low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) or some bleeding disorder. 

First among these bleeding disorders is Von Willebrand disease. It is a bleeding disorder in which a person has a low level of a protein called Von Willebrand factor which helps in blood clotting. Due to deficiency of this factor the blood doesn’t clot well. In most cases a person having it is born with this due to an inherited abnormal gene which controls Von Willebrand factor. 

Next bleeding disorder is hemophilia. It is a rare inherited genetic disorder in which a person has a deficiency of blood clotting factors and a result the blood doesn’t clot normally. Persons with this tend to bleed for a longer time after an injury as compared to non affected persons. The sufferer also is prone to easy bruising and is at risk of bleeding inside joints (like knees, elbows, ankles) or brain that can be life threatening. 

Another bleeding disorder is Christmas disease. It is a genetic disorder in which the  body of the sufferer either has decreased levels of factor IX that helps in blood clotting or complete absence of it. It causes impairment in blood clotting. Prolonged bleeding from cuts, or after surgery , unexplained  bruising, blood in the urine or stool, bleeding in joints are some of its signs.

Other than these deficiency of clotting factors II, V, VII and X (that helps in blood clotting) can lead to bruising. 

Other reasons are leukaemia (blood cancer in which WBC’s I.e. white blood cells in the bone marrow goes on multiplying out of control), ankle sprain, muscle sprain, deep vein thrombosis. Some medicines that make the blood thin like aspirin also can lead to bruises. Deficiency of nutrients including vitamin C, B12 and folate are also linked with frequent bruisings. Some people are naturally prone to get bruises easily. Females are more at risk for bruises as compared to males. Bruises also tend to be more common in elderly people because with age skin gets thin and the tissue that supports the blood vessels also become thin and prone to break easily and capillaries under skin get vulnerable to rupture.

Symptoms 

Initially, skin discolouration appears in case of a bruise. The colour depends upon if it is fresh or if it is under the healing process. Firstly, it is reddish and then it turns bluish, purplish or blackish in some hours. Following it the bruise becomes yellow, green or yellowish brown after a few days. Initially it is red because the blood seeped out is fresh and rich in oxygen. Later its colour changes because pooled blood starts to lose its oxygen and eventually from the by-product compounds that appear from breaking of haemoglobin. 

The bruise can be painful and tender to touch. Small bruises are not dangerous and tend to heal easily in a few days. But sometimes bruises can be serious. In some cases bruises can be present in case of fracture needing urgent attention. Sometimes bruises may be indicative of severe internal bleeding that also need urgent medical help. Blackish bruises on the leg may sometimes point towards DVT that can be life threatening. In DVT a blood clot forms in a deep vein usually in the vein of lower legs causing swelling, pain, redness and heat. This clot carries a chance to get detached and travel through blood circulation to the lungs which can be life threatening if not immediately attended.

Excessive swelling around the bruise, numbness of arms / legs, where fracture of bone is suspected, when it occurs without any reason, when they are recurring without any reason, when they don’t heal in a  few weeks (around 2 weeks), when they keep growing, when they appear on abdomen, back or face, if a lump (hematoma) form over the bruise and when attended with vision impairment or bleeding from nose or gums or with blood in urine / stool are some of the signs that can be indicative of serious conditions needing immediate medical help.

It requires urgent medical treatment because it causes blood supply to the testicles to cut off which can result in permanent damage to the testicular tissue if not attended immediately. Lastly, this pain can occur from urinary tract infection or kidney stones. 

Homeopathic Medicines for Testicle Pain

There is good scope to treat cases of mild to moderate pain in testicle in homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines for testicle pain help in providing relief by targeting the root cause behind it. These medicines help in natural and safe recovery without any side effects. Before starting homeopathic treatment it is very important to rule out the reason behind testicular pain. This is because homeopathy, despite its great scope, has limitations to treat some serious conditions like testicular  torsion where immediate help from conventional mode of treatment is needed. It is to be noted that in case of sudden severe unbearable testicle pain or testicle pain attended with nausea, chills, fever or blood in urine one should urgently take medical help from conventional mode of treatment as they can be indicative of serious condition.

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. They can also be used to manage residual symptoms that remained after acute condition but that too along with conventional medicines. Following are some of the well indicated homeopathic medicines for blood clots but any of these medicines should be taken after consulting homeopathic physician and self medication should be avoided.
