Homeopathic Medicines for Molluscum Contagiosum

What is molluscum contagiosum?

Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, painless, round, flesh coloured bumps on the skin. Molluscum contagiosum is very common among children aged 1 to 10 years, but can affect adults as well. Molluscum contagiosum is caused by pox virus called the molluscum contagiosum virus. It remains contagious until eruptions are gone.

How does molluscum contagiosum spread?

Molluscum contagiosum spreads via direct skin-to-skin contact, touching a surface or object contaminated with pox virus such as toys, towels, clothes. Molluscum contagiosum also spreads through sexual contact with a person infected with molluscum contagiosum virus. People with a weak immune system are at a higher risk of acquiring molluscum contagiosum infection.

Symptoms of molluscum contagiosum

The eruptions in molluscum contagiosum are small, round, painless, pearly, flesh coloured papules. The papules have a dimple in the centre. The eruption could be between 1mm and 5mm in diameter. The most common site for molluscum contagiosum eruptions are the face, armpit, neck, arms and hands. In adults, the genitals, lower abdomen and inner thighs are involved if the infection is sexually transmitted. Itching and irritation in eruptions may be present. Scratching the eruptions leads to spread of virus to the nearby skin. Secondary bacterial infection may arise in the eruptions. The eruption usually disappears within 6 to 18 months. However, in immuno suppressed persons, the lesions may last as long as 4 to 5 years.

Homeopathic Treatment of Molluscum Contagiosum

Homeopathic medicines are very successful in treating viral skin infections, including molluscum contagiosum. Homeopathic medicines follow a very safe, mild and gentle approach to treat molluscum contagiosum. They hasten recovery and ensure good treatment. A major advantage of taking Homeopathic medicines in molluscum contagiosum is that they are curative rather than suppressive in nature. In addition to this, they are safe for use and have no related side effects. The most prominently indicated Homeopathic medicines for treating molluscum contagiosum are Merc Sol, Natrum Mur, Silicea, Sulphur, Kali Iodatum and Thuja Occidentalis. The most appropriate Homeopathic medicine is selected based on a detailed study and analysis of symptoms in each case.

Homeopathic Medicines for fallopian tube blockage

What are fallopian tubes?

Fallopian tubes are the part of the female reproductive system that connects the ovaries to uterus. The fallopian tubes – one on either side – are approximately 10cm in length and approximately 1cm in diameter. Each fallopian tube has three parts, named the infundibulum, ampulla and isthmus. Every month, the fallopian tubes transport an ovum from the ovary to the uterus. The lateral part of the fallopian tube, overlying the ovaries, is the infundibulum. The infundibulum has finger-like projections called fimbriae. The fimbriae help to pick up the eggs from the ovary. The part next to the infundibulum is the ampulla. The ampulla is the most common site for fertilization. Next to the ampulla is the isthmus, the part closest to the uterus.

Role of fallopian tubes in fertility

Every month, the ovary releases an ovum which is picked up by the fimbriae of the fallopian tube. The ovum enters the fallopian tube and remains there for around 12 to 24 hours. If it gets fertilized with the sperm, the process of fertilization is carried forward. If not, the unfertilized ovum gets shed, along with the uterine lining, as menstrual bleeding. Therefore, the fallopian tubes need to be patent or open for the ova to travel through them to unite with the sperm. In case the fallopian tubes are blocked for some reason, passage of the ovum along the fallopian tube is hindered, which in turn makes it impossible for the sperm to fuse with the ovum, resulting in infertility. Blocked fallopian tube is a major cause of infertility among women. A hysterosalpingogram is the diagnostic test conducted to rule out blockage in fallopian tubes.

Causes of fallopian tube blockage

The major cause of blockage in fallopian tubes could be pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), sexually transmitted diseases, endometriosis, adhesions in fallopian tube, pelvic tuberculosis, a history of abdomen or pelvic surgery.

Can Homeopathy treat blocked fallopian tubes?

Homeopathic medicines can treat partially blocked fallopian tubes, though results would vary from case to case. There is greater scope for treatment in cases where inflammation or infection is the cause of the blockage. However, homeopathy cannot treat cases of completely blocked fallopian tubes. Homeopathic medicines for treating blocked fallopian tubes are prescribed only after going through the complete, detailed case history. The case history would include the menstrual history, obstetric history and detail constitutional make-up of the person.  Any cause of fallopian tube blockage such as pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted disease, endometriosis is taken note of. Some majorly indicated Homeopathic medicines for treating blockage from salpingitis are Apis Mellifica, Lachesis, Pulsatilla, Medorrhinum and Sepia. A choice among them is made only after complete evaluation of the case at hand. Self-medication must be strictly avoided. A Homeopathic physician should be consulted.

Top Rated Homeopathic Medicines for Tics

What are tics?

Tics are sudden semi voluntary repetitive twitches/movements or sounds involving distinct muscle groups. Tics are preceded by the build-up of some kind of tension in the body or sensation like itching/tingling that gets relieved only after a certain movement is performed. Tics can be suppressed with effort, but cannot be resisted. A suppression of tics is usually followed by bursting out of tics.

Classification of tics

Tics are classified into two major types – motor tics and phonic tics. Motor tics refer to movement-based tics while phonic tics are associated with sound production. Further, motor tics can be simple motor tics or complex motor tics. Similarly, phonic tics can be simple phonic tics or complex phonic tics. In simple tics, a single muscle group is involved, while in complex tics, more than one muscle group is involved. Some examples of simple motor tics include blinking the eye, shaking of head, neck stretching, shoulder shrugging. Common complex motor tics include touching objects, facial grimacing, pulling at clothes, repeating an action and making obscene gestures. The examples of simple phonic tics include throat clearing, coughing, sniffing and grunting. Complex phonic tics include repeating one’s own words or words just spoken by someone else, saying obscene or socially unacceptable words.

Causes of tics

The exact cause of tics is not clearly understood. Tics often run in families. Intake of drugs such as cocaine may also lead to tics. Tics may increase from stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation and fatigue. Concentrating on performing a task decreases tics while relaxing may worsen them.

Homeopathic treatment for tics

Tics can be treated very effectively with Homeopathic medicines. In fact, Homeopathic medicines work wonders on both motor and phonic tics. There is no one Homeopathic medicines for treating all types of tics. The ideal Homeopathic medicine is selected only after analyzing case details based on symptom presentation. On the huge list of Homeopathic medicines to treat tics, some well recognised names are Agaricus Muscarius, Cuprum Met, Hyoscyamus Niger, Zincum Met, Argentum Nitricum and Veratrum album. Among these, Homeopathic medicine Agaricus Muscarius is indicated for tics such as blinking of eyes or twitching of the head. Cuprum Met is helpful in treating eye twitching. Homeopathic medicine Hyoscyamus Niger is best suited for treating tics like making grimaces or ridiculous gestures and where a person is impelled to touch everything. Hyoscyamus Niger, on the other hand, is the best Homeopathic medicine for tics where the person makes obscene gestures, touches genitals, sings amourous songs. Zincum Met is used to treat twitching in various muscles and where a person repeats everything said to him. Homeopathic medicine Argentum Nitricum will effectively treat cases where anxiety worsens tics. Veratrum Album is prescribed for tics that cause a person to repeat actions over and over again. It must be noted that the above symptoms are mere guidelines. Several other factors need to be considered before any of these medicines are prescribed. Therefore, self-medication must be avoided at all cost. The medicines should be taken only in consultation of a Homeopathic physician.

Best Homeopathic Medicines for Vitiligo

What is vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a disease characterised by white patches on the skin due to loss of skin pigment. The white patches in vitiligo have clearly defined, sharp margins. In addition to the skin, the hair may also start turning white. Cells called melanocytes present in the skin produce skin pigment melanin. In a person with vitiligo, the melanocyte cells either die or stop making melanin. This results in white patches on the skin.

Can Homeopathy treat vitiligo?

Homeopathic medicines treat vitiligo in a safe and effective manner, by moderating the overactive immune system. Homeopathic treatment of vitiligo takes a two-way approach: first, they stop further spread of the white patches; next, they work on re-pigmenting the white spots. Among the most effective Homeopathic medicines for vitiligo are – Baryta Carb, Baryta Mur, Calcarea Carb, Arsenic Album, Natrum Mur, Silicea, Merc Sol and Arsenicum Sulfuratum Flavum. The ideal Homeopathic medicine is selected as per the clinical and constitutional symptoms of the person.

What causes vitiligo?

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease where the immune cells start to destroy the melanocyte cells – the pigment producing cells of the skin – out of a misdirected response. Having a positive family history of vitiligo puts a person at a higher risk of acquiring the disease. Stress, sunburn and chemicals may also trigger vitiligo.

Can vitiligo spread from one person to another via touch?

No, vitiligo does not spread from one person to another through touch.

I have white spots on my skin. Could it be vitiligo?

Vitiligo is one of the major conditions where white spots appear on the skin, but it is not the only condition with this symptom. White spots on the skin may also arise in conditions such as tinea versicolor, albinism, pityriasis alba, naevus depigmentosus, leprosy and lichen sclerosus. Further investigation is needed before a conclusive diagnosis can be made.

Which parts of the body can vitiligo affect?

Vitiligo can affect any body part, but in most cases, the hands, feet, face, arms and lips are initially involved.

What are the various patterns in which vitiligo appears?

Vitiligo mainly appears in three patterns. It could take the focal pattern, in which white spots are limited to one or a few areas of the body. Vitiligo may also be segmental, where white spots appear only on one side of the body. In generalised vitiligo, white spots appear symmetrically on both sides of the body.

At what age does vitiligo start?

Vitiligo can start at any age though it mostly begins in the 20 to 30 year age group.

I have had white spots on my hands for a few months. They have been diagnosed as vitiligo. What are the chances they will spread?

The course of spread of vitiligo cannot be predicted and varies from person to person. In some persons, vitiligo does not spread further and remains limited to the initial spots. While in others, it spreads to other parts of the body. In some persons vitiligo spots spread at a very fast pace while in others, it progresses slowly.

How much time does it take to recovery fully from vitiligo with Homeopathic medicines?

The effectiveness and duration of treatment vary from person to person, ranging from a couple of months to a year. The major factors that decide the duration of complete recovery in vitiligo are the extent of white spots, how long the spots have been there and the individual body response to Homeopathic medicines.

Can topical applications or ointments help treat vitiligo?

No, ointments don’t help in vitiligo. The cause of vitiligo is internal, not external. Therefore, any treatment for vitiligo must take an inside-out approach. Homeopathic medicines work internally by addressing the cause of vitiligo and moderating the overactive immune system.

Can avoiding certain foods heal or worsen vitiligo?

There is neither a specific food product that can cure vitiligo nor any foods that can worsen it. However, some suggest that citrus fruits, non-vegetarian food and milk products should be avoided in vitiligo. The claim, however, lacks supportive evidence.

What is the role of vitamin D in vitiligo?

Vitamin D plays a very significant role in vitiligo cases. Research shows that vitamin D3 supplements slow down progression of vitiligo. Intake of vitamin D supplements and medicines that moderate the overactive immune system collectively works to treat vitiligo.

Which Homeopathic medicines are prominently indicated for treating vitiligo?

Homeopathic medicines most prominently indicated for treating vitiligo include Baryta Carb, Baryta Mur, Calcarea Carb, Arsenic Album, Natrum Mur, Silicea, Merc Sol and Arsenicum Sulfuratum Flavum.

How is the best Homeopathic medicine for vitiligo selected?

Wonderful Homeopathic Medicines for Chalazion

What is a chalazion?

Chalazion, also known as meibomian cyst, is a cyst in the eyelid caused by inflammation of the blocked meibomian gland. Meibomian glands are sebaceous glands on the eyelid that produce an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye’s tear film and lubricates the eye. A most common condition resembling chalazion is the sty. The major difference between the two is that chalazion forms away from the lid margin and is painless, while a sty forms at the eyelid margin and is painful.

How is a chalazion formed?

The chalazion forms in three steps: blockage of the meibomian gland, then retention of the sebum secretions due to blockage of the meibomian gland and lastly, formation of the cyst or chalazion from the pent up secretions. Over time, this cyst turns into a hard node.

Clinical picture of chalazion

Chalazion presents itself as a painless swelling in the eyelid. On examination, a small, hard, non-tender node in the eyelid away from the lid margin is felt. In most cases, chalazion is formed on the upper eyelid. A large chalazion may press on the cornea and cause blurred vision. Other features that may attend include heaviness of the eyelid, eyelid tenderness and light sensitivity. Sometimes chalazion resolves on its own. In a few cases, there are chances of calcification of the chalazion. In others, a secondary infection may occur in the chalazion leading to formation of hordeolum internum.

Homeopathic medicines for chalazion

Under the conventional mode of treatment, surgical removal of the chalazion is advised. However, Homeopathy can treat chalazion very successfully in a non-invasive manner, taking a natural, gentle, yet effective approach. Homeopathic medicines dissolve the chalazion and treat the tendency towards its recurrence. Some top grade Homeopathic medicines to treat chalazion are Thuja Occidentalis, Conium Maculatum, Calcarea Fluor, Staphysagria and Silicea.

What is anger?

Anger is a strong emotional state of being upset or frustrated which makes a person hurt someone for doing something unkind to them. The causes of anger are multifactorial. Abusive past, suppressed emotions, stress, living in an environment where people get angry often, poor self-esteem, low tolerance levels are a few factors that make a person prone to getting angry easily. Genes, too, play a significant role in how a person reacts to a situation and the intensity with which he/she reacts to a situation.

  • Overwhelmed anger – This type of anger appears when a person is unable to cope with the circumstances or situations taking place around them anymore. This type of anger is mostly expressed by shouting.
  • Chronic anger – Chronic anger is prolonged anger and is often linked with depression.

Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

What is juvenile rheumatoid arthritis?

Arthritis (joint inflammation) arising in children under the age of 16 years is referred to as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is also known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, in some cases, limits itself after running a short course while in others, it may become chronic.

Cause of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

The cause of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is still not clear. It is considered a disease of autoimmune origin. Normally, the immune cells of the body get activated when the body is invaded by foreign substances such as bacteria and virus. The immune cells fight these external forces to exclude the infection.  In autoimmune diseases, the immune cells start destroying the healthy body tissue from a misdirected response that makes them see these tissue as foreign and harmful. In juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the immune cells start destroying the synovium of joint. What triggers this response is not clear, but genetic and environmental factors are said to play an important role.

Symptoms of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

At the onset of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, visible symptoms are vague and may include lethargy, flu-like symptoms and poor appetite. In fact, the first noticeable symptom in most children may be limping. Afterwards, the typical symptoms of rheumatism including pain, swelling and stiffness in joints appear. The number of joints involved in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis varies from case to case. However, the main joints involved in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis include knees, ankle, wrist and small joints of the hands and feet. Stiffness in joints is marked in the morning that gets better as the day advances.

Complications related to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

There are several complications related to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The first among these are eye complaints. A major eye complaint is inflammation in the front of the eye, known as uveitis. If not treated in time, this could lead to permanent eye damage, even blindness. Overall body growth and bone development also get disturbed. Joint contractures are another complication related to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The child with arthritis will position the affected joint in the most comfortable place, which is usually bent, and avoid its movement. This causes shortening of the muscles and tendons which eventually leads to joint contractures. Joint deformities, muscle loss, muscle weakness and osteoporosis are other problems related to the onset of arthritis in children.

Homeopathic treatment of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

Homeopathic mode of treatment shows the most promising results in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis cases. Homeopathic medicines are natural and therefore, safe from any adverse side effects and can be given to young children.
