The diagnosis of hyperactivity or / and attention deficit and other behavioral disorders / autism is a real world epidemic. A great number of parents are looking for natural alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs usually prescribed to “fix” these problems. My experience of the past many years has led me to three conclusions (observations) I would like to share. There are various etiologies able to explain these types of problems. Homeopaths know a great number of remedies addressing the different causes (such as a very stimulating diet, emotional problems, dyslexia, vaccination side effects, etc.) Once the causes are eliminated, the symptoms disappear. Some amazing homeopathic remedies appear to be a possible solution in most of the cases of hyperactivity and attention deficit: Tuberculinum, Medorrhinum, Carcinosinum. Many diagnoses in cases of children disguise the actual deficits and anomalies to be attributed to the educational system and “working conditions” itself. The Attention Deficit able to capture it all! A mother has come for consultation with her 11 year old boy diagnosed by his teacher as having an attention deficit disorder. The consultation reveals, however, a disturbing fact: this bright young man is the best student in his class! Maybe he is a little too [...]
I am a Pakistani and Canadian citizen. I can feel your pain as my 10 years old son was also diagnosed as having moderate Autism. He was diagnosed at age 2 in Canada (2004). At that time he was put on a long waiting list for ABA / IBI services. Even though we lived in a locality that had pilot projects and more than usual funding (Markham, Ontario), we were told by the service providers that based on the waiting list of people already diagnosed before him and their anticipation, he will likely not be able to start receiving the necessary ABA / IBI services at least till he is 4.5 or 5 years old. And the cut off age for provision of these services was (and I believe still is) 6 years. They tend to focus on younger kids (younger than 4 years, understandably), but due to long waiting list many kids grow older than 6 without receiving those necessary services / training. It was too expensive to afford those services privately (in the tune of 100s of dollars per hour), so when my son was 2.5 years old (early 2005), I decided to move my family out of [...]
Enuresis or Bed-wetting / Bed wetting بچوں کا بستر پر پیشاب کر دینا refers to the involuntary passage of urine during sleep. Nocturnal enuresis of children may be simply a delay in the establishment of voluntary control over the act of micturition. Although bed wetting is quite normal in infants and children in the first one year, about 5% of 10 year olds and 13% of 6 year olds wet the bed. Most girls can stay dry by age of 6 and most boys stay dry by age 7 years. Any child having reached the age of eight years and not having gained full nocturnal control must be subjected to complete investigations. The child itself only is not responsible as generally considered by the parents since it is beyond his control and if the case is taken up properly and all aetiological factors are taken into consideration the child can be cured. Homeopathic treatment is very successful in curing bed wetting in the children. Types – There are 2 types of enuresis. Primary, in which the child has never been dry at night. Secondary, in which the child is dry for a period of months or years and then begins to wet the bed. Primary Enuresis / Bed-wetting: Primary enuresis has an [...]
Constipation is passage of small amounts of hard, dry bowel movements, usually fewer than three times a week. People who are constipated may find it difficult and painful to have a bowel movement. Other symptoms of constipation include feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and sluggish. Constipation – CAUSE Common causes of constipation are – not enough fiber in the diet – not enough liquids – lack of exercise – medications – irritable bowel syndrome – changes in life or routine such as pregnancy, older age, and travel – abuse of laxatives – ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement – specific diseases such as stroke – problems with the colon and rectum – problems with intestinal function (chronic idiopathic constipation) Constipation – Homeopathy Treatment & Homeopathic Remedies Nux vomica [Nux.v] Perhaps no remedy in the Materia Medica is oftener prescribed for anything than is Nux vomica for constipation. Nux vomica has peculiar and characteristic indications for constipation, and when prescribed upon these indications it will cure every time. Nothing is surer than this. But Nux vomica is often prescribed when these indications are not present, and often does much good; in this class of cases there will almost invariably be present one [...]

سائنسدانوں کے اندازوں کے مطابق دنیا بھر میں 35 کروڑ افراد ڈپریشن کے مرض کا شکار ہیں اور اب طبی ماہرین کا کہنا ہے کہ انھوں نے اس مرض کو سمجھنے اور اس کے علاج کے سلسلے میں ایک اہم دریافت کی ہے۔ ڈپریشن کے مریضوں کا علاج عموماً مسکّن ادویات اور نفسیاتی علاج سے کیا جاتا ہے اور اس سے مریضوں کی اکثریت کو فائدہ بھی ہوتا ہے۔ تاہم کچھ مریض ایسے بھی ہیں جن پر کوئی بھی موجودہ علاج اثر نہیں کرتا اور سائنسدان اب یہ جاننے کی کوشش کر رہے ہیں کہ آیا ان کا مدافعتی نظام ہی تو ڈپریشن کی وجہ نہیں بن رہا۔ ڈاکٹروں کا کہنا ہے کہ ڈپریشن کا گہرا تعلق انسانی جسم کے مدافعتی نظام سے ہے اور جن افراد کا دفاعی نظام ہی ان کے دماغ کو بدلنے کی کوشش کرتا ہے وہ بھی ممکنہ طور پر ڈپریشن کا شکار ہو جاتے ہیں۔ ڈپریشن اور انفلیمیشن کا گہرا تعلق ہے۔ اگر آپ کو فلو ہے تو آپ کا مدافعتی نظام ردعمل ظاہر کرتا ہے اور اکثر لوگ اس کا اثر اپنے موڈ میں بھی محسوس کرتے ہیں۔ پروفیسر بلمور اس تحقیق کے روحِ رواں اور برطانیہ کی کیمبرج یونیورسٹی کے سائکیاٹری ڈپارٹمنٹ [...]
Marysia Kratimenos discusses the homeopathic management of urinary tract infections Urinary tract infections are very common in adult women and may become recurrent. The most common is cystitis, an infection of the bladder, but infection may occur in any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys. Infection is caused by the growth of the gut bacteria within the urinary system, but in many cases bacteria are not found on urine culture, despite obvious symptoms of bladder discomfort. The close proximity of the anus and urethra (opening from the bladder) in women allows for the bacterial movement, especially if there is irritation of the delicate perineal tissues. Urinary tract infections are rare in boys and men because of the length of the urethra. In most cases there is an underlying cause, usually an obstruction to the normal urine flow, or reflux of urine to the kidney. All cases of proven urinary infection in men and boys must therefore be fully investigated, preferably by a urologist. Recurrent infections in women, more than three within a year, also warrant investigation, although the chances of finding an underlying cause are less likely. Occasionally, kidney stones or bladder warts may present with recurrent bladder infections. [...]
