HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR LUMBAR SPONDYLOSIS

Image
Lumbar spondylosis is a degenerative condition which affects the lower spine. In a patient with lumbar spondylosis, the spine is compromised by a narrowing of the space between the vertebrae, causing a variety of health problems ranging from back pain to neurological issues. This condition is usually caused by old age, as the spine undergoes changes as people grow older, and many of these changes contribute to degeneration of the vertebrae. Spondylosis, which can appear in the cervical and thoracic vertebrae as well, is also known as spinal osteoarthritis. In a classic case of lumbar spondylosis, the space between discs in the lumbar spine becomes narrowed. As a result, the patient develops numbness, tingling, and pain which seem to radiate out from the area. These symptoms are the result of pressure on the nerves as they exit the spinal cord. If the spondylosis is allowed to progress, it can lead to a narrowing of the spinal canal, resulting in impingement of the spinal cord, which ca…

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR CALCANEAL SPUR

Image
Acalcaneal spur(orheel spur) is a small osteophyte(bone spur) located on the calcaneus(heel bone). Calcaneal spurs are typically detected by a radiological examination When a foot bone is exposed to constant stress, calcium deposits build up on the bottom of the heel bone. Generally, this has no effect on a person's daily life. However, repeated damage can cause these deposits to pile up on each other, causing a spur-shaped deformity, called a calcaneal (or heel) spur. Obese people, flatfooted people, and people who often wear high-heeled shoes are most susceptible to heel spurs. Aninferior calcaneal spuris located on the inferior aspect of the calcaneus and is typically a response to plantar fascilitisover a period, but may also be associated with ankylosing spondylitis(typically in children). Aposterior calcaneal spurdevelops on the back of the heel at the insertion of the A chilles tendon. An inferior calcaneal spur consists of a calcificationof the calcaneus, which lies superio…

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR HEART PALPITATIONS

Image
Heart palpitations are the feelings of having rapid, fluttering or pounding heart. Heart palpitations can be triggered by stress, exercise, medication or, rarely, a medical condition. Although heart palpitations can be worrisome, they're usually harmless. In rare cases, heart palpitations can be a symptom of a more serious heart condition, such as an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), that may require treatment. Causes- Often the cause of your heart palpitations can't be found. Common causes of heart palpitations include: ·Strong emotional responses, such as stress or anxiety ·Strenuous exercise ·Caffeine ·Nicotine ·Fever ·Hormone changes associated with menstruation, pregnancy or menopause ·Taking cold and cough medications that contain pseudoephedrine, a stimulant ·Taking some asthma inhaler medications that contain stimulants Occasionally heart palpitations can be a sign of a serious problem, such as an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) or an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia)…

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR ANXIETY

Image
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stressful situations. But in some cases, it becomes excessive and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations. This type of steady, all-over anxiety is called Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Other anxiety-related disorders include panic attacks—severe episodes of anxiety which happen in response to specific triggers—and obsessive compulsive disorder , which is marked by persistent invasive thoughts or compulsions to carry out specific behaviors (such as hand-washing). Anxiety so frequently co-occurs with depression that the two are thought to be twin faces of one disorder. Like depression, it strikes twice as many females as males. Generally, anxiety arises first, often during childhood. Evidence suggests that both biology and environment can contribute to the disorder. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to anxiety; however, this does not make development of the condition inevitable. Early traumatic experiences can also reset the body’s norma…

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR MIGRAINE

Image
A migraine can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on just one side of the head. It's often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and can be so severe that the pain is disabling. Warning symptoms known as aura may occur before or with the headache. These can include flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling on one side of the face or in your arm or leg. CausesThough migraine causes aren't understood, genetics and environmental factors appear to play a role. Migraines may be caused by changes in the brainstem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve, a major pain pathway. Imbalances in brain chemicals — including serotonin, which helps regulate pain in your nervous system — also may be involved. Researchers are still studying the role of serotonin in migraines. Serotonin levels drop during migraine attacks. This may cause your trigeminal nerve to releas…
