Treatment of dengue with Homoeopathy

Each case of dengue will show different symptoms & will need different remedies. Here is one example.

Treated a case of dengue over the phone. Patient is 28 yrs old female dentist in Ahmedabad, living with doctor parents.
Said she had fever since 3 days in the evening with chilliness n thirst before n during fever. Wanted to eat tasty food. I gave ars alb 200 bd for 2 days. NS1 test was positive n platelets were 1.28 lacs. 
After 2 days fever continued, went upto 103. Wanted her room door to be closed so as to avoid noise. Didn't want to talk n got irritated if someone else talked. V feeble, lying with eyes closed. HA from tying hair. Thirst 1/4 glass at long intervals. Nausea from smell of food. So weak, can't get up to have water.  Her parents put her on IV fluids. Gave China 200, 3 hrly. In the evening, platelets dropped to 30,000.
Took history in detail. Mother said she is v sleepy but answers properly and goes back to sleep immediately . She is weak n tired, but alert, even with 104 fever she will tell her mom when IV fluid is about to get over.  Saw 2 rubrics
Talk indisposed to heat during
Delirium, answers correctly when spoken to, but unconsciousness returns at once.
Gave phosphoric acid 1M. Temperature went down, after 2 days--platelets 45000, next day one lac. After 3 days resumed work. I have seen patients who take Allopathic med take longer to recover, have lot of weakness, some have bad joint pains etc. Whereas patients with homoeopathic med recover faster. Can someone corroborate this fact ?

Children & Homoeopathy

Just treated a 6 days old orphan child with diarrhoea. He was passing 18-20 stools per day. Not passed urine since long. Was advised hospitalisation by paediatrician. But didn't get admission.
Got brief history from foster mother.
Child had fever. He would pass motion immediately after formula feeds. Stool would end with noise of gas. Child would be hungry again in 1 hr. Also he had few boils in groin area.
Took the rubrics
Diarrhoea eating after agg
Stool sputtering
Appetite increased diarrhoea with & appetite ravenous diarrhoea with
Skin eruptions, boils.
Gave Aloes 200, twice for 2 days. Baby is fine.

Treated another 2 1/2 month old orphan baby. Baby was handed over to foster mother 3 hrs back with a file which said she was on cough syrup, asthalin syrup & nebulisation with budecort n duolin since 3 days.
I observed that her breathing was quite loud and she had rattling cough. Also the foster mother said that baby had kept her tongue slightly out since she was brought from the orphanage.
I repertorised 3 symptoms
Respiration loud
Cough rattling
Tongue protruded
All 3 rubrics were covered by Lachesis, cina, opium, nux vomica n hydrocyanic acid.
I saw baby was quite cheerful without any discomfort on her face--which was unusual from the way she was breathing.
I gave her opium 200 twice for 2 days. She slept well & was fine in 2 days.

53 year old male patient came to me on 15/11/16 for Psoriasis since 18 months. Despite allopathic treatment it was spreading all over. His hands & feet were affected the most. Due to the cracks in the fingers he could not eat or take a bath properly. There was pus & blood coming from the cracks in the feet, due to which he was unable to walk without pain. He would get fever often, he would scream with pain & his room would smell because of the offensive pus. In 10 weeks’ time, this patient who was house bound, has started working. His hands & feet have become normal (as shown in the pictures), thanks to Homoeopathy. Who says Homoeopathy is slow ??? See pictures below.

Side effects of Laxatives

How often you have a bowel movement varies. Some people pass upto 3 stools a day & some may pass 3 stools in a week. Also you may have stools which are difficult to pass because they are hard, dry or small. Before opting for laxatives, try these lifestyle changes to help with constipation:-
1. Eat fiber rich foods such as wheat bran, fresh fruits, vegetables & oats. Also include beans, sweet potato, popcorn, almond, walnut, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, whole grain bread, pear, plum, berries, flaxseed, brocolli in your diet.
2. Drink plenty of fluids daily.
3. Exercise regularly.
Despite doing all this if constipation continues, go for homoeopathic medicines--because taking laxatives long term have the following side effects:-
1. Milk of magnesia can cause bloating, cramps, gas etc.
2. Isabgol can cause bloating, cramps. It can also increase constipation if not taken with enough water.
3. Dulcolax can cause belching, diarrhoea, rectal irritation & dependence.
4. Laxatives interfere with your body's absorption of some medications, vitamins & minerals. They can also cause electrolyte imbalance, esp after prolonged use. Electrolytes include calcium, chloride, potassium, magnesium & sodium. These regulate a number of body functions. So electrolyte imbalance can cause abnormal heart rhythms, weakness, confusion & fits.
5. Your body gets used to the laxatives & you will need higher doses.
6. Your intestine is a muscle & it will lose its tone.
7. People generally have the impression that Ayurvedic laxatives are safe, which is a myth. They can cause stomach pain, diarrhoea, dehydration & dependence.
