Nephrotic syndrome is a nonspecific disorder in which the kidneys are damaged, to leak large amounts of protein (at least 3.5 grams per day per 1.73m2 body surface area) from the blood into the urine.
It is characterised by proteinuria (>3.5g/day), hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia and edema. A few other characteristics are:
The most common sign is excess fluid in the body. This may take several forms:
Puffiness around the eyes, characteristically in the morning.
Edema over the legs which is pitting (i.e. leaves a little pit when the fluid is pressed out, which resolves over a few seconds).
Fluid in the pleural cavity causing pleural effusion.
Fluid in the peritoneal cavity causing ascites.
Some patients may notice foamy urine, due to a lowering of the surface tension by the severe proteinuria. Actual urinary complaints such as hematuria or oliguria are uncommon, and are seen commonly in nephritic syndrome.
May have features of the underlying cause, such as the rash associated with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, or the neuropathy associated with diabetes.
Examination should also exclude other causes of gross edema—especially read more [...]
Palladium پلاڈیم - The Essential Homeopathic Features
Palladium patients are having tremendous emotional insecurity with strong emotions that cannot be expressed, and in this way creating a blockade, a deep inner conflict that needs constant support on the part of those around and especially those whom they are intemately connected, all this is coupled wiyth a tremeddous unexpressed egoism.
They actually think all the time that they are worth more than the others think about them, and it does not matter how much praise thay may others use for them it is neverr enough. An insatiable hunger for flattery, not only praise but really flatter. It is impressive how much they crave it and how little they openly admit and ask for it.
They will sit in the company of many people and if nobody pays attention to them for sometimes they have a strong sense that they are neglected. On the contrary if they feel that they are appreciated they keep very alive and excitable during the contact with the others, and they spend so much emotional energy that when they go back home and are alone again they feel exhausted. Actually this feeling for the need for support and the good read more [...]

Question: What is Hering's Law?
Answer: Hering's Law states that: “All healing occurs from within out, from the head down, and in the reverse order in which the symptoms have appeared.”
Question: Who came up with Hering's Law of Cure?
Answer: Many years ago, a now famous Doctor observed this healing phenomenon and thus, this healing event was named after him, Dr. Constantine Hering (1800 - 1880) - Father of American Homeopathy.
Question: What does Hering's Law mean?
Answer: Hering's Law describes an event or process that may occur after you begin to detox or do a cleanse on your body, especially if you have cleansed too much and / or too fast. Essentially, the body will follow a certain pattern of healing as described below:
“From within-out” - getting rid of toxic accumulations from the inside of the body to the outside (through the skin).
“From the head down” - A good philosophy is part of getting well-a philosophy that brings cheerfulness, happy moments and an attitude of determination to overcome. Where is a person’s philosophy? The answer is in the head. The person who nurtures hate, destructive ideas, misery read more [...]
CONIUM MACULATUM کونیم
Tincture of fresh plant in flower.
THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES
The idea of paralysis in Conium is not so much the one we know from Socrates' death by the 'noggin of hemlock'; real paralysis comes only as an end result, and this may take a very long time, twenty years, thirty years, or more. Conium suffers with a gradually progressing weakness and paresis, and gradual is the key word here.
The idea is much more that of sclerosis, of becoming hard, especially the glands, which become swollen and indurated. A gradually progressing weakness with the formation of indurations during the decline, is the picture of Conium pathology.
Mental Paralysis and Induration
This process develops on all three levels. On the mental level, we observe a gradual decline of the intellectual capacities.
The patient becomes more and more dull; he has more and more difficulty in comprehension.
Thinking is slowed down, memory becomes weak, and the patient becomes forgetful. His five senses lose their acuity, and his reserves slowly ebb away. A frequent and characteristic symptom is an inability to sustain mental effort read more [...]
DIGITALIS - ڈیجیٹیلس
Digitalis purpurea. The foxglove.
Tincture of the second year leaves.
THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES
Digitalis is primarily a heart remedy. It should be considered when the pulse is abnormally slow and later in the pathology, fast or irregular, intermittent; where there is heart disease, with great weakness, and the patient can hardly talk, and is losing strength to the point that he feels faint. Cold skin and irregular respiration will often point to such cardiac pathology. All this can be accompanied by deathly nausea and emptiness in the stomach; weakness and dilation of the myocardium; and prostration from the slightest exertion.
Digitalis will be indicated if you have been told by the patient that when the problem started (whether acute or chronic), the pulse was very slow, even down to 40 beats per minute. Hahnemann says that Digitalis 'greatly slows down the pulse in its primary action', and this initial slowing down of the pulse rate is a guiding symptom of Digitalis in almost all cases, no matter what the pathology.
It must be understood that here the heart is in a precarious state, is really read more [...]
کیس ٹیکنگ میں مشاہدہ کی بہت اہمیت ہے۔ اس بات پر غور کریں کہ مریض کیا کرتا ہے اور کیا کہتا ہے۔ مثلاً باڈی لینگوئج کو ہی لے لیں۔ برائی اونیا کا مریض بے حس و حرکت لیٹا ہو گا۔ سوالات کے جواب دینے سے گریز کرے گا۔
کالوسنتھ یا میگنیشیا فاس کا مریض ہو گا تو آگے کو دہرا ہوا ہو گا۔
جیلسی میم کا مریض ہو گا تو نقاہت اس کے انگ انگ سے پھوٹ رہی ہو گی۔ شکایت کوئی بھی ہو اگر علامات میں نقاہت بھاری ہو تو جیلسی میم کو کبھی نہ بھولیں۔
نکس وامیکا کا بیوروکریٹک رویہ آپ محسوس کریں گے۔ علامات بیان کرے گا تو انتہائی نفاست اور ترتیب سے۔ نکس وامیکا اور آورم میٹ کا اندازِ حکمرانی نمایاں ہوتا ہے۔ آپ نے دیکھا ہو گا بعض مریض کلینک میں آکر بیٹھ جائیں گے اور جب تک آپ اُن سے مخاطب read more [...]
I routinely recommended to my patients right on their first visit to adopt a high-quality, low-allergy diet. When they came back two or three weeks later, they often said that they feel much better now but a week ago they had a cold. When I asked about the symptoms they turn out to be mainly a profuse mucus discharge, sometimes also diarrhoea, but rarely are there signs of a real infection. In fact, these patients just experienced their first healing crisis on their long path to better health.
This concept of a healing crisis clearly shows the opposite perceptions that drug medicine and holistic medicine have of health and the healing process. In drug medicine it is assumed that a patient who is free of disease symptoms is more or less healthy and the aim of drugs is to achieve this condition by removing any disagreeable symptoms. Frequently alternative or complementary medicine is used in the same way, instead of more or less toxic drugs just more benign remedies are being used. This is what most patients want and according to their beliefs they either use drugs or natural remedies for this purpose.
However, holistic or natural medicine, following in the footsteps of the old read more [...]
The Definitive Years 1833-1843
The time period around the publication of the 5th Organon (1833) was one of radical change and experimentation for Samuel Hahnemann. He was not completely satisfied with the single dry dose of 30c, and the wait and watch philosophy he taught in the1st edition of the Chronic Diseases (1828) and the 4th Organon (1829). Now that the Founder was concentrating on chronic degenerative diseases, he wondered how he could treat the miasms with a limited materia medica of around 100 remedies in potencies no higher then 30c? The areas where he searched for answers were in proving more remedies, raising the potencies, and changing the delivery system from the dry dose to the medicinal solution. This was complemented by his new middle path philosophy about repetition and the introduction of the split-dose, if necessary. In aphorisms 245 and 246 of the 5th edition the Founder taught that any "striking response" to a single dose precludes the repetition of the remedy in any manner. On the other hand, in those cases only noted by a "slow progressive improvement", the remedy may be repeated at "suitable intervals to speed the cure''. In this way, he claimed, it is possible read more [...]
In order to find the right remedy, the practitioner has to understand the importance of the symptoms given and of those withheld. He must also meet certain inner conditions if the patient is to trust him.
To find the right homœopathic remedy, the simillimum as it is called, means to save the patient much suffering. It means that he* is given a great boon: the possibility of becoming healthy and happy once again.
A healthy person is one who is free on all three levels of his existence — mental, emotional, and physical — and is therefore able to have a sense of well-being, a condition vital to a true sense of happiness. Therefore finding the correct remedy for a diseased individual gives this possibility, which is of course something of immeasurable value.
I would like to consider, first, the difficulties that attend such a task, and, second, the inner conditions that should prevail on the part of the patient and of the homœopath in order to maximize the likelihood of such a fortunate outcome.
Difficulties inherent in finding the simillimum
First, let’s look at the difficulties that the practitioner must overcome in order to arrive at read more [...]
