RECURRING INFECTIONS- DEBILITY POST INFECTIONS

RECURRING INFECTIONS- DEBILITY POST INFECTIONS

How is your energy today?

Have you had some recurring infections in the recent weeks?

How has it made you feel?

How is your energy level and general feeling post infections?

It is quite common to have lower energy levels post active infection and depending on your vital force it may take quicker or longer to recover them.

Homeopathic solutions.

Some remedies which may help recover post recurring infections:

KALI PHOS– Greatest nerve remedy. Prostration, weak and tired e.g. from gangrenous conditions. Symptoms are better warmth, rest, nourishment. Worse excitement, mental and physical exertion.

NAT SULPH– Great remedy for post influenza exhaustion. Feels every change from dry to wet. Better dry weather, pressure and changing position.

PHOS AC– Mental debility then physical weakness whenever the system has been exposed to the e.g. ravages of acute diseases. Better from keeping warm. Worse exertion, loss of vital fluids.

CHINA OFF– Debility from profuse exhausting discharges and loss of vital fluids. Weakness post food poisoning, blood loss with weakness. Worse after eating, slightest touch.

BAPTISIA– Extreme prostration especially after debilitating illness like septic conditions of the blood. Confusion as if intoxicated.

Holistic support

If you go through recurring infections quite often then your vital force may need some additional support and organs like spleen and liver may need some tuning.

It is quite debilitating for the body to go through recurring infections so supporting your immune system and eliminating organs is important.

Constitutional and organ support prescribing helps to achieve better energy levels overall which can lead to milder and less frequent infections.

Constitutional prescribing is based on totality of the physical symptoms including mental and emotional state of the patient to find the most similar remedy to it.

RECURRING INFECTIONS- ADENOIDITIS

RECURRING INFECTIONS- ADENOIDITIS

Hello this summer!

After a blog about sore throats, I wanted to check more in depth why sometimes may get recurring sore throats. One of the causations might be an inflammation of the glands called adenoiditis.

Adenoiditis– it is an infection and inflammation of the adenoid gland. A recurrent gland infection can lead to the state of being debilitated.

The risk factors for adenoiditis to occur include:
• IV drug use
• Contact sports
• Animal bites or scratches
• Infection in your mouth and throat
• Recent surgery or hospital stay

So, what happens if we are diagnosed with adenoiditis? You may experience pains in the throat, ear or just swollen glands which can cause mouth breathing and/or snoring. Unpleasant smell from the mouth and acrid or metallic taste might be present. Excessive salivation or dry mouth are possible symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies

Some homeopathic remedies to take into consideration:

CALC CARB– obese children who sweat a lot at night and take cold easily, stiches on swallowing, difficult swallowing. Worse from milk, worse from dentition.

CALC PHOS – adenoid growths, chronic enlargement of tonsils, worse changes of weather. Sensation of weakness in throat. Better in summer, worse change of weather, cold weather, exposure to damp.

AGRAPHIS NUTANTS– adenoids with enlarged tonsils, throat deafness. Throat and ear troubles with tendency to free discharge from mucous membranes.

CISTUS CAN– glands swollen and suppurating, hawking of mucus. Glands inflamed and indurated. Throat very sore and dry, sore on inhaling least cold air. Worse drafts, from touch.

HYDRASTIS– enlarged adenoids with yellow mucus and general lymphoid hypertrophy. Thick, ropy secretions. Worse from dry winds, open air. Worse at night.

Long term solutions

Treating only adenoids is normally not sufficient for a complete cure. To achieve long term change is important to help with susceptibility on a deeper level. For this, prescribing on a constitutional level is needed working closely with a homeopath to monitor your progress.

Are you experiencing any recurring infections which trouble you today? Would you like to work with a homeopath to find long term solutions for them?

RECURRING INFECTIONS- TOENAIL FUNGAL

RECURRING INFECTIONS- TOENAIL FUNGAL

Hello this summer! Any recurring ailments on your nails?

Toenail fungal infection might be sometimes a recurring state. One of my patients suffered from it on and off for nearly 10 years. With help of homeopathic remedies, change of a diet and hygiene habits we finally managed to clear her susceptibility.

It usually takes more than one remedy for recurring states to go away for good. Nosodes and miasmatic remedies are often needed to prevent infectious state from coming back.

What homeopathy can offer?

Some of the remedies to consider:
THUJA– Nails are discoloured and soft, out of shape, crippled, brittle and soft. The nails may crumble or break. Patients may think they are unclean or ugly.

ANT CRUD– Nails are very brittle and break easily. The original shape of the nails is distorted and the nails grow out of shape, nails are split and grow at a very slow pace. The patient seems to get unusually irritated at the slightest things.

SILICA– Crippled and brittle nails. Patients who have very cold and sweaty feet with thickened nails. Nails might be disfigured. Sharp, unbearable pain in toe nail making patient restless and irritable.

GRAPHITES– The toenails grow inwards and they tend to ulcerate with surrounding tissue swollen. The nails are thickening or there might be deformity of nails which break easily. Patient experiences deep seated pain which cannot bear the touch.

What recurring skin infections are troubling you today?

Recurring states might be not so easy to shift and often require some additional changes in our daily habits. More alkaline diet and making sure we keep nails short and we dry our feet properly might be essential in order to reduce a chance of toenail fungal infection to return.

Deep susceptibilities to fungal states are treated with miasmatic remedies under supervision of homeopath. The full consultation taken can show the family history and how susceptibilities can be changed. It’s a process but it’s worth it.

SUMMER AILMENTS- SORE THROAT

SUMMER AILMENTS- SORE THROAT

How is your throat today?

Summer is here and some different summer ailments. In my last blog I have described ear ache and remedies which can be useful for it. You can check it out here.

Another summer ailment which quite often may trouble us during our summer escapes is a sore throat. It is sometimes enough to have ice cream on a hot day or too much of a cold drink to suffer from throat pain for the next few days. So, what homeopathy can offer?

Homeopathic solutions

Here you can check it sore throat remedies:
Aconite
Apis
Belladonna
Hepar Sulph
Lycopodium
Merc sol and other Mercuries remedies
Phosporus
Phytolacca
Pulsatilla
Silica

That’s just a few helpful remedies when we have a painful throat. But how to make the right choice between them?

Nitty gritty- how to find the right remedy.

First and the most is to know is a causation. Is it a cold drink or exposure to wind which started our symptoms? Or maybe wet feet and dehydration?

Then it is important to look at modalities within the remedy picture and how the sore throat feels? Sore throat might be burning, stabbing or feel constricted. The throat might be swollen or covered with pus. A feeling of a lump in the throat or rawness can indicate specific remedies. Is the sore throat worse or better after some liquids or foods? What temperature of drinks do we want to have?

What is the location of the pain in the throat (left or the right side) How is a general energy and an emotional state? How is a thermal state? Any other symptoms are we experiencing?

Conclusion

So, there is no difference with other acute ailments. It is the same in case of sore throat. We want to know quite a lot about the patient to be able to prescribe the most indicated remedies. Sometimes it may happen that sore throat is recurring and a person suffers from it every month. Then definitely looking into the deeper emotional states,  susceptibilities and weak organs is important. Also, family history to know where the miasmatic influences are and can be modified.

Other things to take into consideration are things like medications used and other treatment we went through including dental work. All of this information is gathered and analysed by a homeopath during a full consultation.

Wishing you the great escapes this summer and hopefully the sore throat will not get us this season. 😉Let’s speak about homeopathy!
