THE BIG DISEASE THAT GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN

Whether it’s rashes, swollen knees, nausea or impaired weakness in your limbs that has gone on for a long time – you’re probably frustrated looking for medical answers. If this sounds familiar, the answer may lay in that tiny creepy crawler that got under your skin last summer!
One possible explanation is that you’ve contracted Lyme disease from a deer tick. These tiny blood sucking parasites live in tall grasses, can fly with the wind and cleverly stick on the insides of your pants or shirts until they bury their heads under your skin. They love the hot places you offer under your armpits, the backs of your knees or the nape of the neck; depositing Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii bacteria, and leaving a bulls-eye rash as a remembrance.
Lyme disease is prevalent enough to be considered epidemic and serious enough to cause neurological symptoms, cognitive defects, heart rhythm irregularities and even death.
If you’ve recently been bitten, then a blood test may identify the disease, however, it’s often ineffective in detecting it when the bite occurred several months or years ago.
The mainstream treatment for Lyme disease is oral and/or intravenous antibiotics to lessen the more severe symptoms. After treatment, some people continue to have symptoms that include muscle aches and fatigue. The Mayo Clinic says that the post treatment Lyme disease (continuing symptoms after treatment) requires more research to discover why there are lasting symptoms for some people even after antibiotic treatment.
If you think you have contracted Lyme disease, Homoeopathy can help. Homoeopathy is a holistic healing system that focuses on the whole person and tailored to each patient’s specific symptoms and history. It’s an effective treatment and eradication of the symptoms and long-term side effects of Lyme disease.
There are a number of remedies that Dr. Kumar may use to treat Lyme disease. The remedies used will depend on the patient’s symptoms and background, but part of the treatment plan may include Rhus Tox for body aches and chills. More effective remedies include Bryonia for fatigue, and Belladonna for inflammation. Even when treating the same illness, people often have varying symptoms, medical histories and/or additional maladies, and therefore require individualistic treatment plans. It’s important to work with a Homoeopathic practitioner who can advise and prepare the most effective treatment. If you would like more information or would like to set up an appointment, please contact Dr. Kumar.

UNDER THE WEATHER OR TOTALLY SHIPWRECKED?

Snow has fallen, temperatures have dropped, and people may find themselves a little ‘under the weather.’  The term, ‘Under the Weather,’ comes from a maritime source, and was basically referring to sailors who didn’t feel well.  They would huddle down, under the deck of the ship, as a way to escape the weather, and the sea (visually at least).  When you have the influenza, it can feel like you’re drowning with stuffed up sinuses, and with every little wind sending chills up your body!

Chances are, you’re a bit of a shipwreck yourself, hiding under the covers, trying to keep out the drafts, and out of the elements in order to recover!

There are several symptoms of the flu, that range from mild to all out miserable.  Complications can range from  a few days or weeks of feeling a range of discomfort – to more serious ailments like pneumonia, asthma and even heart failure!  It’s important to strengthen your immune system and if the flu does knock the wind out of your sails, take something safe and effective.

The symptoms:

Here are some of the symptoms of this year’s flu strains:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

There are many different flu viruses and they are constantly changing. This is why Homoeopathic treatment is so effective.  It is a whole body treatment, and individualized and tailored for each person. This means that if, for example, you have asthma and catch the flu, homoeopathic treatment would include addressing your asthma as well.  Your treatment would have long term positive health effects, on both your immune function, as well as your asthma management.  In fact, with longer term management, it is possible to eliminate your asthma all together with the right Homoeopathic treatment.
