Pain & More Pain – Arthritis

It is said no pain no gain. But this is not true in case of arthritis. Arthritis patient suffers painful episodes in a miserable way. There are 100 different forms of arthritis but two major types are Osteoarthritis (OA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), other common forms include fibromyalgia, gout and psoriatic arthritis etc. All forms of arthritis can cause pain in different ways.

The conventional medical system uses pain killers to eliminate symptoms of pain. Painful sensations are masked by suppression of messenger neurons which are present there in case of inflammation and pain. Thus, feeling of the pain remains under the carpet as long as pain killer drug remains active in the system of a patient. After this time lapses over, the patient has to take next dose of pain killer and this vicious cycle of masking pain and damaging patient’s healthy organs continues, because after all conventional drugs are mere chemicals which have their own side effects ranging from mild to serious in nature.

When mild pain killers are failed after a prolong use then conventional system offers steroid drugs which are far more dangerous than standard pain killers. With the use of these drugs, patients have to pay serious consequences in the form of side effects.

Besides painkiller, drugs are also used to suppress the immune system. These immunosuppressant drugs sometimes start attacking the patient’s own immune system and cause more pain in the case of RA.

This is the dilemma of the conventional medical system that a patient goes for the treatment of a single disease but after some time of treatment same patient is suffering from the whole set of new symptoms of other diseases like indigestion issues, hyperacidity, skin disease, infertility, psychological issues etc. These are few, but there is a long list of diseases.

When drugs fail, the patient is convinced to accept the option of surgery, for example, knee replacement, hip replacement etc. Surgery is NOT a solution to this problem. In many cases, this can add misery to the life of a patient suffering from arthritis. Above all the same patient who has had gone under the surgical intervention, has to redo the same procedure in future. This happens due to simple reason, that is, the conventional medical system fails to address the root cause of a disease. After the surgery, the patient has to rely on pain killers and steroid drugs too.

Face makeup can hide the dark marks on your face but these marks remain there unless your skin is not replenished specifically with the vital nutrients to remove these dark marks. Same is the case with conventional medicines, these medicines would not address the root cause of a disease rather mask its symptoms and suppress it temporarily.

In Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) healthcare system picture is totally different. In the competent hands of a CAM practitioner, a patient receives a treatment what its system deserves most, to clear the symptoms of the disease like arthritis. There are many safe, highly effective and scientifically proven treatment options available to treat the symptoms of arthritis. Whether, it’s OA or RA or any other form of arthritis.

Besides many other useful substances and supplements which are available to treat different forms of arthritis. Magnesium stands out on the top of all other treatment options in the CAM. Then there is Boron, Vitamin C, E, Omega 3 and other supplements can be added according to the symptoms and specific deficiencies of a patient. If a patient is deficient on vitamin D then any treatment will fail until his vid D level is not fulfilled.

In homoeopathy, there are specific remedies to combat the symptoms of different forms of arthritis. Remedies are prescribed according to the total symptom picture of a patient.

Genetic makeup and lifestyle of a patient play a vital role in health and disease. Certain genes become slow and do not produce enough of certain types of proteins which are necessary to keep us healthy, as we age or due to other ecological factors. If a slow gene is optimised and starts producing sufficient amount of required protein, then the body will stop suffering disease symptoms which are caused due to lack of specific gene product. For this reason, Sequence-Specific Homeopathic DNA (SSHD) remedies are developed. DNAs in these remedies target specific genes to treat specific disease symptoms. For example, in case of inflammation SIRT6 gene is targeted to lower the amount of inflammation in the system. In order to suppress the immune system without any side effects, the IL10 gene is targeted, this helps in case of RA, where suppression of immune response is greatly required. To combat the painful sensations effectively but without damaging any other healthy organ of a patient gene KCNK18 is targeted. Since, the reduced expression of KCNK18 gene plays a vital role in the intensity of painful sensation, therefore by optimising the function of this gene with the help of SSHD remedy system, painful sensations may be effectively controlled.

Suitable physical exercise and proper nutritional rich foods are crucial to treating arthritis and other such inflammatory diseases. Along with above CAM solutions for arthritis change in lifestyle, eating habits, and specifically avoiding those food items which can aggravate disease symptoms and, can cause an allergic reaction is key for successful treatment. In the case of arthritis, sugar is one of the many culprits. This is a crucial hint for arthritis sufferers!

There are multiple approaches to tackle a single disease in CAM practice and each approach works synergistically with other methods safely and effectively to clear the symptoms of pain and disease without any side effects.

Gallbladder Removed – Great relief for the time being, but bad for the rest of your life!

If you are suffering due to stones in your gallbladder, most probably after some time, when all treatments have failed, your doctor would advise you to surgically remove your gallbladder. How simple is it for your doctor to pass this noxious advice to you! But it would be you who will suffer throughout your life after losing a vital organ.

Gallbladder and its function?
The gallbladder is a small pouch-like organ that resides underneath the liver. It stores bile. Bile is a liquid produced by the liver, to help digest fats. Through bile ducts, bile passes from the liver to the gallbladder. Bile ducts are a series of channels. Besides this, the gallbladder also performs key tasks such as:
• Enabling absorption of fat-soluble antioxidants and vitamins A, E, D and K.
• Assisting the removal of cholesterol from your body.
• Assisting your body to remove the toxins that have been broken down by the liver.

Role of bile in the digestion of fats:
Bile is stored in the gallbladder. Over time it becomes concentrated, which makes it better at digesting fats efficiently. The gallbladder releases bile into the digestive system when it is needed.
Gallstones are small stones usually made up of cholesterol that form in the gallbladder. When the chemical makeup of bile, inside the gallbladder, is disturbed, gallstones are made. In most cases, the level of cholesterol is too high in the bile which causes excess cholesterol to form stones.

In most cases, these stones do not cause any symptoms and do not need treatment (not needing any treatment is the wrong medical approach). However, when a gallstone is trapped in a duct inside the gallbladder, it can trigger sudden intense pain. This painful sensation may last from 1 – 5 hours, is called biliary colic.

Some people get complications due to gallstones such as persistent pain, jubilance or fever; this is due to inflammation of the gallbladder. This condition is called gallbladder disease or Cholecystitis.
Imagine your gallbladder is removed on the advice of your doctor. No more gallbladder, no more stones, no more pain BUT your body will no longer be able to digest fats. Your body will not be able to absorb fat-soluble vital antioxidants vitamin A, E, D & K. Your body will not be able to remove toxins. Ask your doctor which pharmaceutical drug can give you so that you can digest fat after eating food or drinking milk etc. or to support your body to perform vital tasks mentioned above? Your doctor has nothing in his medicine chest. This is a case of “out of the frying pan into the fire”.

Common-sense is not very common these days!

If your medical doctor had been intelligent enough, he would have tested your cholesterol level at regular intervals after having your initial case history and parental medical history. In this way by keeping your cholesterol level at bay, your chances of having gallstones could have been minimised. Remember, I have said if your doctor is intelligent. But never mind common-sense is not very common these days!
Don’t worry! You can survive without your gallbladder, but you are exposed to the risk of developing fatty liver, experiencing frequently indigestion issues, and suffering from deficiencies in essential fatty acids and fat-soluble nutrients.
Your liver continues to manufacture bile, but there is no longer a gallbladder to store it or concentrate it. Therefore, bile continually slowly drops down into the intestines. If you eat a fatty meal, you will not be able to secrete ample amounts of bile into your intestines, therefore the fat will be very poorly digested. This means you will experience symptoms of diarrhoea, bloating, nausea or indigestion.

Due to not digesting fat, you will not be able to digest essential fatty acids, including Omega 3 and Omega 6 as well. You’ll have a hard time absorbing fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, E, A and K. There are a lot of fat-soluble antioxidants in vegetables: lycopene, lutein and carotenoids are all fat. In the absence of adequate bile, you will not be absorbing enough of these lifesaving compounds from foods. If you consider taking any of the above-mentioned nutrients in supplement form, without sufficient bile you will not absorb them well.

Treatment Options:
Don’t worry if your medical doctor is helpless after your cholecystectomy (surgery to remove the gallbladder). There are numerous options in Complementary & Alternative Medicines (CAM) practice. You can still manage to live a normal healthy life. Speak to your nutritionist, homoeopath, naturopath, microDNA therapist or orthomolecular medicines practitioner now. These are the people who you need most, and who will help you the most. In fact, speak to a practitioner at Mind-Body Clinic for further help and support.
In this regard several Homeovitality remedies can be very helpful including Vital Energy – to boost energy levels, Super CareD – to utilise effectively vitamin D in the body, MR7 – to combat acidic conditions etc.

Use of Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) as a Prophylactic in Coronavirus

Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for human beings. Our bodies cannot make vitamin C, therefore we always have to fulfil our need of vitamin C from other sources, such as green leafy vegetables, berries, guavas, citrus fruits, tomatoes, melons, papayas, kiwi, bell peppers, broccoli, kale or from supplement form of vitamin C etc.

Diabetes Type 2

Diabetes type 2 also known as diabetes mellitus, is a disease when either patient’s body cannot make enough insulin or body cells do not react to insulin (also known as insulin resistance). Diabetes type 2 is part of metabolic syndrome, that can increase the chances of a patient suffering from diabetes type 2, to have other disease conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.

Natural Fertility Aid for Him & for Her

To have offspring is a natural desire among all living beings. In the United Kingdom, 1 in 7 couples may have difficulty in conceiving [1]. In the United States, according to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), 10% of women between the ages of 15 – 44 years have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by fertility problems in women, and another one-third of fertility problems are due to fertility problems in men. The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by problems that cannot be determined [2].
