First Aid in Homeopathy

Homeopathic Approach: Homeopathic medicines work by subtly stimulating the body’s natural defenses instead of fighting manifestations of a disease or health problem. A Homeopath recommends a treatment remedy based on each individual’s personal make up, and not just the presenting problem. This includes the individual’s unique physical, mental, and emotional characteristics. This is how the homeopathic approach differs from conventional medicine. Homeopathy treats the patient, not the disease.

History: Homeopathic remedies have been around for centuries. They have been proven to treat a wide range of ailments, many times more effectively than other medicines. Particularly successful have been remedies for pain, pediatric ear infections, influenza, fibromyalgia, arthritis, allergies, asthma, headaches and sinus problems. Homeopathic treatments have also proven very effective in treating depression, autism, ADD, and menopausal imbalances. There are even homeopathic veterinarians.

Cost: Homeopathic prescriptions are much less expensive than conventional medicine.

Popularity: As many as a quarter to a fifth of all Europeans use homeopathic medicines. And many European governments provide homeopathic treatment to their citizens, just as they do conventional medicine. Paul McCartney, Mother Theresa, Teresa Heinz Kerry, David Beckham, and Queen Elizabeth, have all publicly expressed their passion for homeopathic treatment. The Queen’s father, King George VI, even named one of his race horses �Hypericum, after the homeopathic remedy that cured his blood poisoning.

Abbreviations Used By Homeopaths: Two abbreviations are used to describe a medicine’s strength or potency. In the United States, the decimal, or x, system is more popular. In Europe, homeopaths use the centisimal, or c, system.

Potency: In both systems, potency is expressed as a number followed by an x or c, such as 3x or 6c. A potency of 1 x means a 1: 10 dilution of the original substance, or one- tenth strength (mix 1 drop of the substance with 9 drops of the dilutant, commonly water or alcohol); 2x means 1: 100, 3x is 1: 1000 and so on. In other words, the number before the x in the decimal system equals the number of zeros in the dilution, so 6x indicates a dilution of 1 part in 1,000,000. A potency of 1c means a 1: 100 dilution. The number before the c means that there are 2 times the number of zeroes in the dilution. For example, 3c means a dilution of 1 part in 1,000,000. (whereas 3x means 1 part in 1,000).

A third scale called millesimal (M) scale is also used by homeopaths. This is denoted by a number followed by the letter M, such as 1M, 2M, etc. A potency of 1M means a dilution of 1 part in 1000. The number before M means that the dilution is 3 times this number. A potency of 2M means a dilution of 1 part in 1,000,000.

How Homeopathic Medicines are Prepared: Homeopathic medicines are not simply diluted. They are also shaken vigorously, or “potentized.” To make a 12x dilution, one drop of the mother tincture is added to 99 drops of the alcohol or water mix and the mixture is shaken vigorously. Then one drop from this mixture is mixed with 99 drops of the dilutant and the mixture is shaken vigorously. The resultant mixture has a dilution of 1 in 10,000 (or 4x). The process is repeated a total of 6 times to get a potency of 12x. Finally, these drops are added to tiny lactose (milk sugar tablets, pillules, granules, or powder and stored in dark colored bottle.

Homeopaths believe that shaking transfers the medicine’s essence to the water used to dilute it. This concept is important because solutions diluted beyond 24x (or 12c) may not contain even a single molecule of the original solution. Homeopaths believe that medicines become stronger as they become more dilute and that even when enormously diluted, the medicine’s “essence” or “energy” remains. Reference

Homoeopathy and Kidney stones: Relief without surgery. Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis of symptoms presented in the sick person. Different individuals, suffering from the same disease, can display entirely different symptoms. At times, a patient may display certain symptoms that are not associated with kidney stones at all.

However, to make it easier to pinpoint the remedies that are most commonly used to treat a particular condition, the symptoms experienced by previous patients are grouped together in the homoeopathic repertory. Symptoms that are commonly experienced by patients who have kidney stones are listed along with the most commonly used medicines that would ease the symptoms.

Common utilized homoeopathic remedies for renal stones:
Aconite - Useful in the acute stage. Urine is scanty, and hot to feel. Urine is at times bloody. Patient perspires profusely. Complaints are aggravated by lying on painful side.

Arnica - Dark brick colored sediment in urine. Painful urination.

Belladonna - Useful remedy when urine is scanty, dark and cloudy, with lots of phosphate stones or when the region over bladder is sensitive. Also used in the treatment of blood in urine.

Berberis vulgaris - Used in the treatment of patients who complain of sensation of some urine remaining after urination, or in those whose urine contains mucus with sediments. Also used in the treatment of bubbling sensation in kidneys, pain in loins and thighs during urination, marked soreness in lumbar region. With pain radiating to the groin

Calcarea carbonicum - Used when patient complains of dark brown colored urine. Urine is often bloody or with white sediments.

Cantharis - This is used when symptoms come on with marked intensity and rapidity. Burning is a marked feature in this remedy. Whole of the urinary system seems to be in an inflammed state. Desire to defecate while urinating is also present.

Colocynthus - Intense burning along urethra when patient passes stools. Hard red crystals in urine, that sticks to vessel. Pain on urinating radiates all over abdomen. Pain is relieved by bending forward.

Nitric acid - Used for renal colic where pain is likened to that of splinters. Urine is scanty, dark and offensive. Typically, urine is strong smelling, like horse urine. At times urine is aluminous.

Lycopodium - Primarily useful in healing right sided complaints. Patient is emaciated from above downwards. The complaints seem to peculiarly aggravate between 4-8 P.M. There are many symptoms pointing to pathology in the kidney. Red sand appears copiously in urine in acute conditions. It is indicated for retention of urine.

Sarsaparilla - Very good remedy that helps during renal colic. Urine is scanty, sandy, often blood tinged. Urine dribbles on sitting. Renal colic in children can be treated with this remedy. Child screams in pain before urination, and there is sand in the child’s diaper. Pain radiates from right kidney into the flanks.

Conclusion: Although we live in an age when quick fixes are the order of the day, more and more people are testing the waters of complementary medicine. This is probably due to the increased awareness regarding the adverse side effects of the long-term use of conventional medicines. Homeopathy not only treats the symptoms of a disease but also tries to root out the underlying cause. Besides providing individualized treatment, this system of medicine has very little side effects and is entirely affordable by all. Reference

Medicine and Air Travelling Rules & regulation

photo of tablets and pills

All medications in any form or type (for instance, pills, injectables, or homeopathic) and associated supplies (syringes, Sharps disposal container, pre-loaded syringes, jet injectors, pens, infusers, etc.) are allowed through the security checkpoint once they have been screened. Atropens, an auto-injection system that can help treat many emergency conditions (low heart rate, breathing problems, and excess saliva related to insecticide, nerve gas or mushroom poisoning) are also allowed.

We do not require that your medications be labeled.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) migraine inhalers and CO2 refills.

Medications in daily dosage containers are allowed through the checkpoint once they have been screened.

Medication and related supplies are normally X-rayed. However, as a customer service, TSA now allows you the option of requesting a visual inspection of your medication and associated supplies.

* You must request a visual inspection before the screening process begins; otherwise your medications and supplies will undergo X-ray inspection.
* If you would like to take advantage of this option, please have your medication and associated supplies separated from your other property in a separate pouch/bag when you approach the Security Officer at the walk-through metal detector.
* Request the visual inspection and hand your medication pouch/bag to the Security Officer.
* In order to prevent contamination or damage to medication and associated supplies and/or fragile medical materials, you will be asked at the security checkpoint to display, handle, and repack your own medication and associated supplies during the visual inspection process.
* Any medication and/or associated supplies that cannot be cleared visually must be submitted for X-ray screening. If you refuse, you will not be permitted to carry your medications and related supplies into the sterile area.

Traveling With Disabilities and Medical Conditions

Hidden Disabilities

Travelers with Disabilities and Medical Conditions

* Pacemakers, Defibrillators, Other Implanted Medical Devices, & Metal Implants
* Medical Oxygen and Respiratory-Related Equipment
* Diabetes
* Medications

* Persons with a hidden disability can, if they choose, advise Security Officers that they have a hidden disability and may need some assistance, or need to move a bit slower than others.

* Family members or traveling companions can advise Security Officers when they are traveling with someone who has a hidden disability, which may cause that person to move a little slower, become agitated easily and/or need additional assistance.

* Family members or traveling companions can offer suggestions to Security Officers on the best way to approach and deal with the person with a hidden disability, especially when it is necessary to touch the person during a pat-down inspection.

* Family member or traveling companions can stay with the person during a public or private screening; however, they may be required to be rescreened if they provide assistance to the person.

* Notify the Security Officer if you need to sit down before and/or during the screening process.

Pacemakers, Defibrillators, Other Implanted Medical Devices, & Metal Implants

* If you have implanted medical device, that you would like to remain private and confidential, ask the Security Officer to please be discreet when assisting you through the screening process.

* It is recommended (but not required) that individuals with a pacemaker carry a Pacemaker Identification Card (ID) when going through airport security. Show the Security Officer your pacemaker ID, if you have one, and ask the Security Officer to conduct a pat-down inspection rather than having you walk-through the metal detector or be handwanded.

* It is recommended (but not required) that you advise the Security Officer that you have an implanted pacemaker, other implanted medical device, or metal implant and where that implant is located.

* Security Officer will offer you a private screening once it becomes known that you have a metal implant or implanted medical device.

* If your Doctor has indicated that you should not go through the metal detector or be handwanded because it could affect the functionality of your device or the magnetic calibration of your device, or if you are concerned, ask the Security Officer for a pat-down inspection instead.

* Security Officers will need to resolve all alarms associated with metal implants. Most alarms will be able to be resolved during a pat-down, therefore clothing will not be required to be removed or lifted as part of the inspection process.

Medical Oxygen and Respiratory-Related Equipment

Supplemental personal medical oxygen and other respiratory-related equipment and devices (e.g. nebulizer, respirator) are permitted through the screening checkpoint once they have undergone screening.

Any respiratory equipment that cannot be cleared during the inspection process will not be permitted beyond the screening checkpoint.

Persons connected to oxygen:

* Inform the Security Officer if your oxygen supply or other respiratory-related equipment cannot be safely disconnected.
* Only you can disconnect yourself to allow for your oxygen canister/system to be X-rayed.
* Check with your Doctor prior to coming to the checkpoint to ensure disconnection can be done safely.
* If your Doctor has indicated that you cannot be disconnected or if you are concerned, ask the Security Officer for an alternate inspection process while you remain connected to your oxygen source.
* Infants will remain connected to their apnea monitors throughout the screening process. Apnea monitors will be screened while remaining connected to the infant.
* Oxygen equipment will either undergo X-ray screening (only disconnected oxygen equipment) or physical inspection, and explosive trace detection inspection.

Oxygen suppliers or persons carrying oxygen supply:

* An oxygen supplier or personal assistant may accompany you to the gate or meet you at the gate once they have obtained a valid gate pass from the appropriate aircraft operator.
* Persons carrying his/her supply must have a valid boarding pass or valid gate pass to proceed through the security checkpoint.
* Oxygen being carried by the supplier or person will either undergo X-ray screening and explosive trace detection sampling.

Oxygen and Arrangements

Passengers are responsible for making the arrangements with:

* The airline(s) for supplemental Oxygen onboard the aircraft.
* Local providers for oxygen use during any layover stop(s) and at the final destination.
* The airline, friends, relatives or a local supplier for removal of the canister from the originating airport's gate area immediately after you leave the gate area to board the aircraft.

You must make similar arrangements for your return trip. Please, check the procedures outlined below for details. More information on airline accommodations for oxygen users can be found at the National Home Oxygen Patient's Association web site. You can also download the "Airline Travel With Oxygen" brochure. This publication provides valuable information on traveling with oxygen, including airlines that do and do not provide in-flight supplemental oxygen.

When You Make Your Reservation:

Arranging for Supplemental Oxygen (O2) Aboard the Aircraft

* Neither the Air Carrier Access Act nor the Americans with Disabilities Act require airlines to provide oxygen service. Consequently, airline policies, procedures and services on accommodating passengers who use supplemental oxygen vary widely.
* Notify the carrier when you make your reservation that you will need to use supplemental oxygen aboard the aircraft(s).
* Ask about the airline's policies on the use of supplemental O² onboard. Federal regulations prohibit airlines from allowing passengers to bring their own oxygen canisters aboard to use during the flight. Passengers who use oxygen canisters must purchase canisters from the airline for use during the flight. However, some airlines do permit passengers to bring aboard oxygen concentrators, which do not contain oxygen, and use them during the flight. Policies vary from carrier to carrier, so be sure to check with your airline well in advance.
* Keep in mind that not all airlines offer supplemental oxygen service, or may not offer it aboard all their aircraft. Inquire whether: 1) the airline provides oxygen service, 2) it is available on the flights you wish to take, and 3) you must provide a doctor's letter, or permit them to contact your doctor directly to verify your medical need.

Arranging for Supplemental Oxygen during Layovers or at Your Destination

* Notify the carrier(s) you are traveling with that you will need oxygen at the airport(s). Let them know that your O² supplier will be meeting you at the gate with an O² canister.
* Ask about their policy for allowing O² suppliers to meet you at the layover airports and/or at your destination gate.
* Contact your O² supplier and request that they make arrangements for your O² at the city or cities you'll require. The supplier will need to know the airline(s) you'll be using, departure and arrival dates and time, departure and arrival gates, flight number(s), arrival time(s), and the equipment you will need. Make all these arrangements as soon as possible.
* If a representative from the oxygen-providing company is going to meet your flight with an O² canister, arrange for your flight(s) to arrive during the supplier's normal business hours, if possible. Also, have a local phone number and a contact person in the event of any unforeseen situation(s), such as if their representative is not at the arrival gate when you get there.

Natural Insect Repellents

Natural Insect Repellents!

Keeping bugs away with a conventional insect spray can help, but many insect repellants leave skin and clothing oily and smelling like heavy chemicals, some that are toxic.

Some examples of natural ingredients which may already be in your cupboard and work to ward off summer insects include…..

· Natural mint leaves and grinding it up into a paste, diluting with water and putting in a spray bottle for use as bug spray.

· Chopped peppers also work when watered down in a spray.

· Pure vanilla extract can also be rubbed behind the ears, on the neck, and wrists to ward off pests.

· Cinnamon oil is very effective, but should not be applied in raw form to skin.

· Lavender oil or a lavender flower rubbed behind the neck and ears helps keep the bugs away, and provides a pleasant fragrance.

· Catnip oil has ten times the effectiveness of DEET repellent.

· Celery extract keeps bugs away

· And eating a diet rich in garlic also helps.

Physical Examination: Approach and Overview

In this section, we outline the
physical examination on most new patients or patients being admitted to the
hospital. For more
complaints will dictate what segments of the examination you elect to perform.
You will .nd a more extended discussion of the approach to the examination,
its scope (comprehensive or focused), and a table summarizing
the examination sequence in Chapter 3, Beginning the Physical Examination:
General Survey, and Vital Signs. Information about anatomy and physiology,
interview questions, techniques of examination, and important abnormalities
are detailed in Chapters 3 through 16 for each of the segments of the
physical examination described below.

It is important to note that

may need notes to remember what to look for as you examine each region
of the body; but with a few months of practice, you will acquire a routine
sequence of your own. This sequence will become habit and often prompt
you to return to an exam segment you may have inadvertently skipped, helping
you to become thorough.

As you develop your own sequence of examination,
minimize the number of times you ask the patient to change position
supine to sitting, or standing to lying supine. Some segments of the physical
examination are best obtained while the patient is sitting, such as examinations
of the head and neck and of the thorax and lungs, whereas others
are best obtained supine, as are the cardiovascular and abdominal examinations.
Some suggestions for patient positioning during the different segments
of the examination are indicated in the right-hand column in

Most patients view the physical examination with at least some anxiety. They
feel vulnerable, physically exposed, apprehensive about possible pain, and
uneasy about what the clinician may .nd. At the same time, they appreciate
the clinician’s concern about their problems and respond to your attentiveness.
With these considerations in mind, the skillful clinician is thorough
without wasting time, systematic without being rigid, gentle yet not afraid
to cause discomfort should this be required. In applying the techniques of
inspection, palpation, auscultation, and percussion, the skillful clinician examines
each region of the body, and at the same time senses the whole patient,
notes the wince or worried glance, and shares information that calms,
explains, and reassures.

History: London's Cholera Epidemic

London’s Cholera Epidemic

In 1854 a Cholera Epidemic struck London. This was the first time the
medical community was able to trace the outbreak of an epidemic to one particular source (in this case a public
water pump). By the end of it around 500 people had died.
The House of Commons asked for a report about the various methods that had been used in
treating the epidemic. When the report was issued, the homeopathic
figures were not included. The House of Lords asked for an explanation,
and it was admitted that if the homeopathic figures were to be included
in the report, it would “skew the results.” The suppressed report
revealed that under allopathic care the mortality was 59.2% while under
homeopathic care the mortality was only 9%!

Homeopathic medicine For STOP SMOKING

Stop Smoking, homeopathic remedies to quit smoking

This is actually a homeopathy forum post that someone asked us. I know many people have a resolution to quit smoking in the new year. These homeopathic remedies may potentially help someone stop smoking. I am going to go into some detail about the remedies to help people fight the addiction of cigarrettes.

Tabacum is basically homeopathic tabacco. It helps with the cravings of tobacco since it is diluted with this same substance.

Caladium is a homeopathic ingredient that favorably influences and modifies the craving for tobacco. It also influences and counters the symptoms of respiratory disturbances associated with smoking.

Nux vomica helps smokers from becoming too irritable when trying to quit smoking. This remedy also helps with throat issues associated with smoking.

Avena Sativa helps maintain vitality, endurance and stamina. Smokers lack these traits due to the tabacco affecting their lungs and health. This remedy helps to restore these to a certain extent.

Daphne helps with insomnia associated with trying to quit smoking. It also helps with the tabacco cravings.

Plantago helps lessen the tabacco addiction. This remedy makes your body feel disgusted with smoking the cigarette.

Staphysagria basically helps with smoker's emotional problems. Smokers may experience depression, violent outbursts, irritability, and suppressed emotions. These type of emotions are common for people with addiction. This homeopathic remedy helps lessen these emotions.

People may need a combination of these remedies to help stop smoking. See a homeopathic doctor to see which remedies you may need. If you can not see or find a homeopathic doctor, take the single remedies that most closely resemble your symtoms. Start with a 6X potency for any of these remedies.
