Diabetes – Homeopathy Treatment & few Homeopathic Remedies by-Drimrankhan

Diabetes is of primarily two types – Diabete mellitus (Type-I and Type II) and Diabetes insipidus.

Diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or cells stop responding to the insulin that is produced, so that glucose in the blood cannot be absorbed into the cells of the body. Symptoms include frequent urination, lethargy, excessive thirst, and hunger. The treatment includes changes in diet, oral medications, and in some cases, daily injections of insulin.

What is type-1 diabetes?

Type-1 diabetes is sometimes called juvenile diabetes, or insulin-dependent diabetes. It means that your body can’t make insulin. Insulin helps your body turn the sugar from the food you eat into a source of energy. Type 1 occurs more frequently in children and young adults, but accounts for only 5-10% of the total diabetes cases nationwide.

What is type-2 diabetes?

Type-2 diabetes results when insulin production is defective and tissue resistance to insulin develops. For many persons with Type-2 diabetes, daily insulin supplementation is not required. Diabetes is managed by making moderate changes in diet and exercise. Of the nearly 16 million Americans with diabetes, 90-95% (14.9 million) have Type-2 diabetes. Of these, roughly a third are unaware they have the disease.

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease involving abnormalities in the body’s ability to use sugar. Diabetes is characterized by:

Elevated blood sugars for months to years. 
Both hereditary and environmental factors leading to its development and progression. 
A relative or absolute deficiency of effective circulating insulin. Insulin is a substance made by the pancreas which lowers blood sugar in conjunction with meals. Diabetes is characterized by either: (1) an inability of the pancreas to produce insulin (type 1 or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) or an inability of insulin to exert its normal physiological actions (type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes). 
Often recognized in patients and their families by excessive urination, thirst, weight loss and/or a lack of energy. But diabetes is often silent and may exist for many years without the individual’s noticing it. 
Effects certain “target tissues,” that is, tissues which are vulnerable to the damaging effects of chronically high blood sugar levels. These target tissues are the eye, the kidney, the nerves and the large blood vessels, such as in the heart.

What is Diabetes insipidus?

A form of diabetes resulting from a deficiency of vasopressin (the pituitary hormone that regulates the kidneys); characterized by the chronic excretion of large amounts of pale dilute urine which results in dehydration and extreme thirst.

Diabetic Foot Infections

Epidemiology
Cellulitis occurs 9 times more frequently in diabetics than non-diabetics
Osteomyelitis of the foot 12 times more frequently in diabetics than non-diabetics
Foot ulcerations and infections are the most common reason for a diabetic to  be admitted to the hospital 
25 % of diabetics will develop a foot ulcer
40-80% of these ulcers will become infected
25 % of these will become deep
50 % of patients with cellulitis will have another episode within 2 years
10-30 % of patients with a diabetic foot ulcer will go on to amputation

Pathophysiology

  • Metabolic derangement
  • Faulty wound healing
  • Neuropathy
  • Angiopathy
  • Mechanical stress
  • Patient and provider neglect

Poor Wound Healing
Poor granuloma formation
Prolonged persistence of abscess 
Higher rate of carriage of Staph Aureus in the nares 
Bullae, necrobiosis
Nail fungi (Tenia)

Poor Immune Function
Poor PMN functions
Migration, phagocytosis, intracellular killing, chemotaxis
Ketosis impairs leukocyte function
Monocyte mediated immune function diminished
Hyperglycemia impairs complement fixation

Motor Neuropathy
Architectural deformities
 Hammer or claw toe
 High plantar arch
 Subluxation of metatarsals

Diagnosis
Clinical presentation
 Presence of purulence
 Pain, swelling, ulceration, sinus tract formation, crepitation
 Systemic infection (fever, rigors, vomitting, tachycardia, change in mental status, malaise)
 Surprisingly uncommon
 Metabolic disorder (hyperglycemia, ketosis, azotemia)
 Should be considered even when local signs are less severe

diabetes symptoms?

  • The early symptoms of untreated diabetes are related to elevated blood sugar levels, and loss of glucose in the urine. High amounts of glucose in the urine can cause increased urine output and lead to dehydration. Dehydration causes increased thirst and water consumption.
  • The inability of insulin to perform normally has effects on protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Insulin is an anabolic hormone, that is, one that encourages storage of fat and protein.
  • A relative or absolute insulin deficiency eventually leads to weight loss despite an increase in appetite.
  • Some untreated diabetes patients also complain of fatigue, nausea andvomiting.
  • Patients with diabetes are prone to developing infections of the bladder, skin, and vaginal areas.
  • Fluctuations in blood glucose levels can lead to blurred vision. Extremely elevated glucose levels can lead to lethargy and coma.

Complications of Diabetes

 

Type I Prevention/Solution

 

  • Since the beta cells no longer produce insulin, the body must get it from other sources to survive. Insulin cannot be taken orally, as it would be broken down during digestion. Without insulin, the body cannot use glucose for energy; therefore, insulin must be injected into the fat under the skin. Most insulin injections are made from synthetic sources, and a few are made from pigs. Extreme cases can be treated with insulin pumps. Pumps deliver insulin through a catheter placed under the skin.
  • Type II diabetes develops from insulin resistance. Insulin sensitivity can be restored with modest weight loss; as little as 10 to 15 lbs. can make a difference. Over 90 percent of individuals who lose weight and keep it off do it through a combination of diet and exercise. Until insulin sensitivity is restored, individuals with Type II diabetes may have to take insulin injections.

 

Type II Prevention/Solution

 

  • Type II diabetes develops from insulin resistance. Insulin sensitivity can be restored with modest weight loss; as little as 10 to 15 lbs. can make a difference. Over 90 percent of individuals who lose weight and keep it off do it through a combination of diet and exercise. Until insulin sensitivity is restored, individuals with Type II diabetes may have to take insulin injections.

 

Diabetes prevention

 

  • While genetics plays an important role, an individual still has the ability to influence their health to prevent diabetes.
  • Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle are the biggest risk factors that are controllable. People should watch their weight, and exercisemore.
  • Diet is important because it helps with weight loss. There are some foods such as nuts, which in small amounts provide health benefits in blood sugar regulation.
  • There are tests available to see if a person is at an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, but to identify the two main factors simply requires a good family history (genetics) and a bathroom scale.
  • Exercise is beneficial even without weight loss in the prevention of type 2 diabetes.
  • Exercise is even more beneficialwith weight loss in the prevention of type 2 diabetes
  • Smoking is harmful in many ways including increasing the risk ofcancer and heart disease. It also increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • There are medications available that have been shown in large trials to delay or prevent the onset of overt diabetes. Use of these medications requires a detailed discussion of pros and cons with a doctor as there are side effects to consider.
  • The coming years will be very exciting regarding the advances in the field of prevention of diabetes. However, the cornerstone of therapy will likely remain a healthy lifestyle.

Diabetes – Homeopathy Treatment & few Homeopathic Remedies by-Drimrankhan

#Uranium nitrate. [Uran] 
This remedy is praised highly by Hughes and others in diabetes originating in dyspepsia. It has polyuria, polydypsia, dryness of the mouth and skin. It causes sugar in the urine. Dr. Laning said that no remedy gives such universally good results; it lessens the sugar and quantity of the urine; he recommended the 3X trituration. It is when the disease is due to assimilative derangements that Uranium is the remedy, and symptoms such as defective digestion, languor, debility and much sugar in the urine, enormous appetite and thirst, yet the patient continues to emaciate. Syzygium jambolanum is a remedy capable of diminishing the amount of sugar in the urine, especially when used in the tincture and lower triturations, and some cases have been reported cured, but it cannot be considered a reliable drug , and its use seems entirely palliative.

#Phosphoric acid [Phos]
corresponds to diabetes of nervous origin; the urine is increased, perhaps milky in color and containing much sugar. It suits cases due to grief, worriment and anxiety, those who are indifferent and apathetic, poor in mental and physical force. It is unquestionably curative of diabetes mellitus in the early stages, great debility and bruised feeling in the muscles. There will be loss of appetite, sometimes unquenchable thirst and perhaps the patient will be troubled with boils. When patients pass large quantities of pale colorless urine or where there is much phosphatic deposit in the urine it is the remedy. It thus may be a remedy in the form known as diabetes insipidus. Hering considered Plumbum one of the most important remedies in diabetes mellitus. Causticum, Scilla and Strophanthus may be of use in diabetes insipidus. Lycopodium cured a case in a weary, wretched patient; emaciated, increased appetite and great thirst; pale, profuse urine. Eight quarts in 24 hours.

#Phosphorus. [Phos] 
Useful in diabetes and pancreatic diseases, especially in those of a tuberculous or gouty diathesis. The pancreatic involvement will call attention to Phosphorus. Natrum sulphuricum corresponds to the hydrogenoid constitution, with dry mouth and throat,and Arsenicum should be studied in diabetic gangrene, thirst and emaciation. Sudden and extreme dryness of the mouth and marked physical restlessness are also guiding symptoms to this remedy, especially with a dark watery stool. Dr. P.Jousset reports positive success where the mouth is dry; frequent, abundant urination and tendency to skin eruption.

#Lactic acid. [Lact] 
An exceedingly good remedy in the gastrohepatic variety of diabetes and good results often follow its use. It has a fine clinical record. The symptoms are: urinates copiously and freely, urine light yellow and saccharine, thirst, nausea, debility, voracious appetite and costive bowels. Dry skin, dry tongue, gastralgia. Acetic acid is also a valuable diabetic remedy, and it has passing of large quantities of pale urine, intense thirst, hot, dry skin and marked debility Carbolic acid may also be found useful.

#Bryonia. [Bry] 
Should not be neglected in this disease. No remedy has dryness of the lips as a symptom of hepatic disorder more marked than Bryonia, and this is often one of the first symptom of diabetes. There is a persistent bitter taste, the patient is languid, morose and dispirited, thirst may not be extreme nor the appetite voracious, the patient may lose strength through inability to eat. Podophyllum has a bitter taste, but the tongue is flabby. It may be of use in the disease. Chionanthus is a remedy used by the Eclectic School upon the indications of thirst, frequent and copious urine; constipation with stools light colored, devoid of bile. Functional liver disorders. Argentum metallicum. Hahnemann suggests the use of this remedy in diuresis, it is decided use in diabetes insipidus. The urine is profuse, turbid and of sweet odor. Micturition is frequent and copious. Natrum sulphuricum. Hinsdale reports good results with this remedy. It has polyuria, intense itching of the skin, especially upon the upper surface of the thighs. It is the Tissue Remedy of diabetes.

#Insulin. [Insulin] 
Long before the discovery of Insulin Dr.Pierre Jousset of Paris prepared a pancreatic juice on a glycerine basis which he administered to diabetic patients in doses of 10 or 20 drops a day in water and had results sufficiently good to consider pancreatic juice, orally administered, as a remedy of great value in diabetes. Dr. Cartier, his practical successor, praised it insisted on smaller doses given by mouth as larger doses and hypodermic injections of it had no effect in ordinary diabetes. Baker advises the homoeopathic strengths of Insulin 3d to 30th and reports happy results therefrom. Great care must be taken not to overdose. Boericke says that it maintains the blood sugar at a normal level and the urine remains free of sugar. Epileptic convulsions and mental derangements have been produced by hypodermic use of this hormone.

my personal experience

2 weeks back my uncle was taking a walk in his mango garden. Nearby a small boy was throwing stones at beehive on one of the trees. The bees immediately came in swarms and bit my uncle. He started running but the bees followed him. He ran and dipped himself into a lake nearby. He stayed in the water until the bees left. Later he came home exhausted and with the whole body swollen. He became semi-conscious. He had difficulty in breathing. He started vomiting bile and had a lot of loose motions. He was shivering terribly. The family members and friends panicked and said that he would soon die due to the poisoning.

My father Dr.md sarwar DHMS immediately put a few pills of Apis-m 200 in the dying mans mouth. The patient then passed a great amount of urine. Apis-m 200 was repeated for a few more times. The diarrhoea and vomiting stopped in a little while.

After around 20 minutes the patient became conscious but still weak. He felt uneasy and had burning pains. He could not get up from the lying down position. The medicine was repeated every 2 h ours. By the next morning the patient could talk and felt a lot better. The swelling all over was absent. The patient completely recovered in a couple of days

Homeopathic Remedies for Insect Bites and Stings

Homeopathic remedies can be useful for relieving the pain and swelling of insect bites and stings. If a person is allergic to the venom of a stinging insect, or if a bite is from a poisonous spider, emergency medical attention is needed right away. (Remedies can still be used, to reduce the early trauma and to help recovery.)

Image

For dosage information, please read the information at the end of this section. See also “Using Homeopathy With Professional Guidance” in What Is Homeopathy?

Aconitum napellus: This remedy can be helpful if a person feels fearful or panicked after being stung. Cutting, stabbing, or burning pain may be felt, along with swelling, tingling, or numbness. Aconitum should be used immediately, while symptoms are intense, and can be followed by another remedy, as indicated.

Apis mellifica: If a bite or bee sting causes puffy, tender swelling that is pink or red and hot to the touch, this remedy may be helpful. The area stings and burns, and cold applications bring relief. (If a person is allergic to insect venom, especially bee-stings, Apis may help to reduce the swelling of the passages, given as first aid while on the way to emergency medical care.)

Cantharis: This remedy may be indicated if a bite or sting results in intensely burning, scalding pain. The area of inflammation is red, and blisters may develop.

Carbolicum acidum: This remedy is usually indicated in first-aid situations, while medical help is being sought. The person feels sick and weak, and may have trouble breathing, with a dark or reddish face that looks pale around the mouth.

Hypericum: This remedy is known for its soothing effect on injuries to nerve-rich body areas. It is also useful after puncture wounds, including bites and stings. Shooting pains or pains with numbness and tingling often are experienced when Hypericumis needed.

Ledum palustre: Swelling that extends some distance from the bite, often with a bluish tinge, a feeling of cold and numbness, and aching pain, suggests the use of this remedy. If the swollen part seems cold, but the application of ice or cold water brings relief, Ledum is strongly indicated.

Urtica urens: Reddish blotches that burn and itch intensely (like a nettle sting) after insect bites may be relieved with this remedy. It is also a useful remedy for hives that sting and itch.

Homeopathy Dosage Directions

Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

Many homeopathic physicians suggest that remedies be used as follows: Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the remedy work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient.

If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.

Home Remedies for Warts

Home Remedies for Warts

Raw Potatoes
Raw, uncooked potatoes can be very helpful with the removal of warts. This natural remedy for wart removal is very popular and easy to implement.    Cut the potato in half or into a smaller portion and rub the potato on the affected area.  Repeat this step a few times a day and not less than two or three times.  Many people can see successful results in about two to three weeks.

 

 

Grapefruit Juice 
Grapefruit juice is another natural way to remove warts.  When using grapefruit as a home remedy to remove warts, cut a grapefruit in half and squeeze the juice out.  Apply a relatively small amount of grapefruit juice to the wart.  Go through this process a couple of times a day, at least two to four times a day.
When done, cover the area with a bandage.
Successful results could be seen in about a week to three weeks.

Bananas Peels 
Bananas peels are great as a home remedy and a natural treatment to remove warts. 
The way to use this natural remedy for warts is to peel the banana, take a piece of the peel with the yellow side of the peel facing the wart and place it on the wart.
One banana peel should last for about twelve hours so it is recommended to use a bandage or tape to help the peel stick to the wart and to apply it overnight for about two weeks or until the wart is gone.

Onions
Onions can be very useful as natural home remedies for warts.
Cut an onion and rub it on a wart, just the same way you would do with a potato.

Castor oil 
Castor oil can help with wart removal.
Apply a small amount of castor oil to your wart. You could apply castor oil twice a day, or only once – at night, just before you go to bed. Applying it once a day can be effective just as well.
Castor oil can take up to a month and sometimes a bit more to show results, but its worth the wait as this method of treatment is considered very effective in the removal of warts.

Pineapples
Fresh pineapples are another natural way to remove warts which is very effective .This home remedy is a natural remedy that can produce quick results.   Some individuals may see their wart disappear in three days or less.
Cut a fresh pineapple and apply a piece to the wart, a couple of times a day.  As already mentioned, the wart may disappear quite quickly.
Dandelion Milk
Dandelion milk is a natural way to remove warts and is also very effective.
Cut the stem of a dandelion and squeeze the milk out.  Apply the milk to the wart two or three times a day.  It is recommended you cut a number of dandelions and squeeze there milk, and then store it in a small and covered container so you have enough for a continual treatment.

child health

Newborn health is ruffled for days after the ordeal of child birth process. The mechanical strain and stress experienced by the neonates leaves them almost in a state of shock.

Passage through the birth canal is considered to be the most dangerous journey of life, but unfortunately, till date, no one ever thinks of what babies go through during the child birth process.

Neonates go through major transition from intrauterine life to extrauterine life. First few minutes after birth are most crucial for newborn’s health, when the pattern of breathing and blood circulation change dramatically. This is followed by marked physiologic transitions in baby’s organ systems.

The neonates are very sensitive to external stimuli during the first week of life. This helps the newborn infant to learn to respond to many forms of external stimuli. Many of the newborn health problems are related to neonate’s poor adaptation to the extrauterine environment.

The pliability of newborn’s bones makes it possible to squeeze through the narrow birth canal usually without any injuries to the mother or to self. Even so, birth traumas do occur.

Newborn skull is made of several soft bones joined together at sutures. Sutures lines give the skull bones flexibility and are the fibrous joints of the bones of the skull.

In newborns the fibrous tissue of the cranial sutures is very soft and pliable as compared to that of older children. This prevents skull fractures when a baby’s head is squeezed as it progresses down the narrow birth canal. This results in to head molding without causing injury to underlying brain tissue.

The head of a newborn thus looks oblong rather than round in shape.Newborn head molding is a common occurrence that usually disappears on its own accord after a few days, without any effect on newborn health.

The head of an infant born by caesarean section or from a breech presentation is characterized by its roundness.

Molding of the pliable cranium is also noted as a flattened area of the skull, when a neonate consistently assumes his preferred sleeping position. Such flattening of the skull bone shows as asymmetry of the shape of young infant’s head, but is only a temporary phenomenon. Skull eventually attains its normal symmetrical shape.

Overriding of sutures actually implies overriding of skull bones at suture lines. This is felt as a ridge of bone when examined by passing fingers over the cranium. This sign is noted in –

1. Head molding during child birth

2. Dehydration in neonates, especially in premature babies

3. Craniosynostosis, the premature fusion of cranial sutures. It is identified as a hard fixed ridge over the suture and an abnormally shaped skull. This can hinder brain development of young infant and so needs early medical attention.

Caput Succeedaneum

Caput succedaneum is a boggy edematous swelling in the skin of the scalp. It occurs in the babies who are born of vaginal delivery with vertex (head) presentation. It occurs as a result of mother’s soft tissue pressure on the presenting part of the baby.
Its characteristics are as follows –

1. The swelling is not confined to any particular skull bone.

2. It crosses the suture lines.

3. Often painful

4. May have some overlying bruises, especially if vacuum cup is used to pull the baby out.

5. The edema subsides completely in 2-7 days on its own accord.

6. No treatment is indicated.

7. Local medications, massage, cold/hot compresses or pressure are highly discouraged.

Cephalhematoma, the commonest newborn’s scalp hematoma

 

 

 

 

 

hematoma scalp

 

1. Rupture of blood vessels crossing the periosteum.

 

2. Bleeding occurs between the skull and the periosteum (subperiosteal space) of a newborn baby.

 

3. Usually follows an instrumental delivery, prolonged second stage of labor, and though rarely may even occur due to normal spontaneous vaginal delivery.

 

4. Hematoma is limited by each cranial bone and is often associated with hair line fracture of the underlying bone.

 

5. Develops gradually after birth during the first day of life.

 

6. Bleeding stops spontaneously due to the pressure of accumulated blood in the closed subperiosteal space.

 

7. Does not cause discoloration of overlying scalp skin.

 

8. No specific treatment.

 

9. Effects on newborn health need to be observed closely –

 

i. Amount of blood loss and signs of hypotension

 

ii. Ill effects of anemia due to blood loss

 

iii. Exaggerated neonatal jaundice due to reabsorption of the blood clot

 

10. Hematoma gets organised and calcified leaving a hard swelling with soft centre, which can be mistaken for depressed fracture.

 

11. Cephalhematoma resolves on its own over few weeks.

 

12. Need to rule out bleeding disorder in the affected neonate

 

The Birth Cry

 

The birth cry is quoted in literature as “a cry of wrath at the catastrophe of birth”. Flood of emotional concern is generated in the new parent in response to their newborns first expression. The soothing that follows gives the baby her first pleasant experience in this strange extrauterine world.

 

To the attending medical staff, the loud first cry is a sigh of relief. It indicates good newborn health and successful transition of the neonate from intrauterine to extrauterine life – a very crucial step.

 

The birth cry is the result of atmospheric air gushing in to the baby’s lungs to initiate normal respiration to sustain extrauterine life.

 

Later on baby uses cry to communicate her needs to the parents. Crying is one of the baby’s ways of communicating and ensuring a response from their environment. People involved in newborn care and also the parents can often recognise the different types of cries and the implications to newborn health issues.

 

Birth Injuries Jeopardize Newborn Health

 

Conditions Predisposing to birth injuries sre as follows –

 

1. Poor health of the mother

 

2. Extremes of mother’s age – too young or too old

 

3. Grand multiparity – more than 3 pregnancies in the mother

 

4. Twins, particularly with the second twin

 

5. Premature or low birth weight babies

 

6. Abnormal intrauterine position/presentation of the baby

 

7. Disproportion of baby’s head and mother’s pelvis (cephalopelvic)

 

8. Large head of the baby due to any cause. Ex.– hydrocephalus, IDM

 

9. Instrumental delivery

 

10. Non-progressive second stage of labour

 

1. Rupture of blood vessels crossing the periosteum.

2. Bleeding occurs between the skull and the periosteum (subperiosteal space) of a newborn baby.

3. Usually follows an instrumental delivery, prolonged second stage of labor, and though rarely may even occur due to normal spontaneous vaginal delivery.

This is a case of a female child aged 12 years bearing the name baby K.K. who was brought to us with a brain tumor of pituitary body in an advanced stage with a probable life span of 3 months and was denied treatments by neurologists and ophthalmologists.

ABOUT THE BRAIN TUMOR

Tumor compressing the pituitary tissue inhibits their secretions making the individual fat and sluggish and invariably amenorrhoeac(absent menses). Pressure over brain tissue initially causes severe headache and later visual changes like hemi-anopia, squint etc. and eventually epilepsy (fits) owing to raised intracranial pressure.

HOMOEOPATHIC OUTLOOK

One of the fabulous features of genuine homoeopathy is treating the individual as a whole basing on the symptom picture available, not giving much weight to the diagnostic terms and conventional assessments or opinions over the curability of the case before us. The extent of expression of the symptoms and the peculiarity with which they express themselves decides the curability of a case, irrespective of the diagnosis. According to homoeopathy “nothing curable exists inside without expression outwardly in the form of symptoms”. To conclude in a single sentence the curability of a disease depends on the extent of expression of the disease, the more complete and expressive the disease is, the more curable it is and the more one-sided a disease with too few symptoms is, the less curable it is.

IMPROVEMENTS IN OUR TREATMENT

This is a most unfortunate occasion of development of tumor at an early age, far before the regular incidence. The patient was brought to us with intolerable headache day & night, continuous vomiting along with other typical symptoms of sluggishness, obesity, retarded growth, squint and 8 months amenorrhoea etc.,. The digestive capacity being so weak, initially, the child was unable to consume 200ml milk (1/4th milk and 3/4th parts of water) and was given 300 ml milk totally (50 ml with 250 ml of water) whole day. Now she is able to take almost all kinds of foods including non-vegetarian now and then without any digestive disturbance. The agonizing headache & strabismus of eyes relieved totally and menses is appearing regularly at 35-40 days interval.

CONCLUSION

This is a case which stands out to be miracle, for the patient’s life span had been increased from 3 months to 2-1/2 years and also the quality of life immensely improved which is only possible through genuine homoeopathic treatments.

Male Infertility,causes,symptoms.homoeopathy treatment,,,,,,,,

Infertility

A couple that has tried to have a child unsuccessfully after 2 years of unprotected sexual intercourse in the absence of known reproductive pathology is termed as Infertile.

A couple shall approach the doctor for proper clinical evaluation after the above said period if they are unable to have a child.

Infertility is sub-divided into 2 types

  • Primary Infertility
  • Secondary Infertility

Primary Infertility is defined as a couple who have never been able to conceive. And the Secondary Infertility is termed as a couple who have difficulty in conceiving after already having conceived in past.

Incidence

It is estimated that one in 6 couples have this infertility problem either primary infertility or secondary infertility and it is increasing these days due to various factors especially in India.

Depending upon the problem of the partner it is grouped into Male infertility and female infertility.

Male Infertility refers to the infertility in the couple owing to problems of male partner and Female infertility refers to infertility in the couple owing to problems of female partner.

The causative factors are different for male infertility and female infertility. A couple may be infertile either due to a problem in one partner or both the partners at the same time that means a couple may be sterile or infertile or childless due to causes of Male Infertility and Female Infertility separately or both together at the same time

Normal Sperm count : 20 million / milliliter to 120 million / milliliter

Oligospermia : Oligospermia defined as less number of sperm in the ejaculate of the male or less than 20 million sperm per milliliter.

Sperm count below 20 million/ml called Oligospermia.

Azoospermia is defined as the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculation.

Causes

Testicular factors

Post-testicular causes

  • Post-testicular factors decrease male fertility due to conditions that affect the male genital system after testicular sperm production and include defects of the genital tract as well as problems inejaculation:

 

Female Infertility

  • Problems in Ovulation
  • Problems in fallopian tubes
  • Problems due to age of the female
  • Problems in the uterus
  • Endometriosis
  • Vaginal factors
  • Problems of cervix of uterus
  • Infertility due to endocrine problems

Hormonal Problems

A small percentage of male infertility is caused by hormonal problems.  The hypothalamus-pituitary endocrine system regulates the chain of hormonal events that enables testes to produce and effectively disseminate sperm.  Several things can go wrong with the hypothalamus-pituitary endocrine system: 
· The brain can fail to release gonadotrophic-releasing hormone (GnRH) properly.  GnRH stimulates 
  the hormonal pathway that causes testosterone synthesis and sperm production.  A disruption in 
  GnRH release leads to a lack of testosterone and a cessation in sperm production. 
· The pituitary can fail to produce enough lutenizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone 
  (FSH) to stimulate the testes and testosterone/sperm production.  LH and FSH are intermediates 
  in the hormonal pathway responsible for testosterone and sperm production. 
· The testes’ Leydig cells may not produce testosterone in response to LH stimulation. 
· A male may produce other hormones and chemical compounds which interfere with the 
  sex-hormone balance.

The following is a list of hormonal disorders which can disrupt male infertility:

Hyperprolactinemia: 
Elevated prolactin–a hormone associated with nursing mothers, is found in 10 to 40 percent of infertile males.  Mild elevation of prolactin levels produces no symptoms, but greater elevations of the hormone reduces sperm production, reduces libido and may cause impotence.  This condition responds well to the drug Parlodel (bromocriptine).

Hypothyroidism: 
Low thyroid hormone levels–can cause poor semen quality, poor testicular function and may disturb libido.  May be caused by a diet high in iodine.  Reducing iodine intake or beginning thyroid hormone replacement therapy can elevate sperm count.  This condition is found in only 1 percent of infertile men.

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia: 
Occurs when the pituitary is suppressed by increased levels of adrenal androgens.  Symptoms include low sperm count, an increased number of immature sperm cells, and low sperm cell motility.  Is treated with cortisone replacement therapy.  This condition is found in only 1 percent of infertile men.

Hypogonadotropic Hypopituitarism: 
Low pituitary gland output of LH and FSH.  This condition arrests sperm development and causes the progressive loss of germ cells from the testes and causes the seminiferous tubules and Leydig (testosterone producing) cells to deteriorate.  May be treated with the drug Serophene.  However, if all germ cells are destroyed before treatment commences, the male may be permanently infertile.

Panhypopituitafism: 
Complete pituitary gland failure–lowers growth hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone, and LH and FSH levels.  Symptoms include:  lethargy, impotence, decreased libido, loss of secondary sex characteristics, and normal or undersized testicles.  Supplementing the missing pituitary hormones may restore vigor and a hormone called hCG may stimulate testosterone and sperm production.

Several sexual problems exist that can affect male fertility.  These problems are most often both psychological and physical in nature:  it is difficult to separate the physiological and physical components.

Erectile Disfunction (ED): 
Also known as impotence, this condition is common and affects 20 million American men.  ED is the result of a single, or more commonly a combination of multiple factors.  In the past, ED was thought to be the result of psychological problems, but new research indicates that 90 percent of cases are organic in nature.  However, most men who suffer from ED have a secondary psychological problem that can worsen the situation like performance anxiety, guilt, and low self-esteem.  Many of the common causes of impotence include:  diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and vascular disease, stress, hormone problems, pelvic surgery, trauma, venous leak, and the side effects of frequently prescribed medications (i.e. Prozac and other SSRIs, Propecia).  Luckily, many treatment options exist for ED depending on the cause–these will be discussed in the treatment section.

Premature Ejaculation: 
Is defined as an inability to control the ejaculatory response for at least thirty seconds following penetration.  Premature ejaculation becomes a fertility problem when ejaculation occurs before a man is able to fully insert his penis into his partner’s vagina.  Premature ejaculation can be overcome by artificial insemination or by using a behavioral modification technique called the “squeeze technique” which desensitizes the penis.

Ejaculatory Incompetence: 
This rare psychological condition prevents men from ejaculating during sexual intercourse even though they can ejaculate normally through masturbation.  This condition sometimes responds well to behavioral therapy; if this technique does not work, artificial insemination can be employed using an ejaculate from masturbation.

Symptoms of Male Infertility

Infertility is defined as a couple’s inability to become pregnant after one year of regular, unprotected sex. Male infertility means the male is unable to impregnate the female because of male factors.

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Male infertility occurs when the man’s partner does not conceive after one year of attempting to become pregnant. Other signs and symptoms depend on the underlying cause of the man’s infertility.

How is the condition diagnosed?

The diagnosis of infertility begins with a medical history and physical exam. The provider may order blood tests to look for hormone imbalances or disease. A semen sample may be needed. The volume of the semen is measured, as well as the number of sperm in the sample. How well the sperm move is also assessed.

What are the risks to others?

Male infertility is not contagious. However, male infertility can be caused by a sexually-transmitted disease, which may be transmitted to sexual partners.

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Some cases of male infertility may be avoided by doing the following: · Avoid drugs and medications known to cause fertility problems. · Avoid excessive exercise. · Avoid exposure to environmental hazards such as pesticides. · Avoid frequent hot baths or use of hot tubs. · Avoid tight underwear or pants. · Eat a diet with adequate folic acid. · Get early treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. · Have regular physical examinations to detect early signs of infections or abnormalities. · Keep diseases, such as diabetes and hypothyroidism, under control. · Practice safer sex to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. · Take a lycopene supplement. · Wear protection over the scrotum during athletic activities.

Although more research needs to be done, parents may want to consider alternatives to disposable diapers for male infants.

Homeopathic Remedies for Male Infertility

Homeopathic remedies approach the treatment of male infertility in a natural way, using homeopathic medicine to not only treat the specific problem but also the overall health of the person involved.

The basis of homeopathy, according to its originator Smauel Hahnemann (1755=1843), is by using a tiny tiny amount of the substance that would actually cause the disease or problem in larger doses will have the reverse affect. The tiny amount is added to water, vigorously shaken, diluted and shaken again until the correct dilution is obtained. Homeopathic dilutions are defined by letters such as X or C, X representing a dilution of one to ten, and C representing a dilution of one to one hundred.

The specific homeopathic treatments suggested for male fertility are:

silica: boosts the immune system in order to improve general well being 

sepia 6c: improves a low sex drive

medorrhinum: can be used to help treat impotence

Homeopathic medicine should be prescribed by a homeopathic practitioner and if you are visiting your doctor it is essential to let him or her know that you are taking a homeopathic product.

Modern science tends to discredit the use of homeopathic medicine as the amount of the actual substance that is meant to be curing the patient is so minute that it cannot possibly have any affect. 

Homeopathic treatment should not be your only approach to your male infertility problems –  you should also be improving your health in general – eat more fruit, vegetables and quality protein, give up smoking, give up smoking, give up smoking – yes it is that important!! Try to reduce the amount of alcohol you drink, preferably to zero! Drink lots of water, exercise – the healthier you are the healthier your sperm are. 

 

What are the treatments for the condition?

Treatment of male infertility focuses on the underlying cause. Without treatment, 15% to 20% of infertile couples will eventually get pregnant. Treatment for a male with infertility may include: · avoiding extended periods of time in hot baths and hot tubs · eating a healthy diet and exercising in moderation · having a varicocele surgically repaired · having vasectomy reversal surgery, which reconnects the tubes carrying sperm from the testes· learning about the best times to conceive · making lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation and limiting intake of alcohol · taking antibiotics for any diagnosed infection · taking hormone therapy · treating erectile dysfunction with counseling, medication, or surgery · wearing loose-fitting underwear, such as boxer shorts

If these treatments don’t work, other means of fertilization may be considered, such as: · artificial insemination. This involves placing sperm directly in the cervix or uterus. · intracytoplasmic sperm injection. This involves placing individual sperm cells directly inside the woman’s eggs. · in vitro fertilization. This involves fertilizing the egg outside the womb and then returning it to the uterus

What happens after treatment for the condition?

Within a year after infertility is diagnosed, 80% to 85% of couples who have treatment get pregnant. It may take several attempts before a couple gets pregnant. Partners must decide how many and what kind of procedures they are willing to undertake.

What are the side effects of the treatments?

Surgery can cause bleeding, infection, and allergic reactions to anesthesia. In vitro fertilization increases the chance of having a multiple pregnancy, such as twins. Antibiotics and other medications may cause stomach upset, diarrhea, or an allergic reaction

How is the condition monitored?

The man can monitor his own ability to impregnate a woman. Any new or worsening symptoms should be reported to the healthcare provider.

What are the indications for male infertility ?

Statistics show that in at least 40% of infertile couples, there is a male factor contributing to the problem. Male fertility screening is done through semen analysis. The general rule is that the lower the sperm count and the poorer the sperm quality, the longer it will take and the more difficult it may be for a pregnancy to occur. However, even men with very low sperm counts may eventually be successful in causing a pregnancy. The sperm count only needs to be high enough for that one time that ovulation occurs, in order for a pregnancy to be possible.

What are the major factors affecting sperm production

Oligospermia is the term used to describe the condition when the sperm count is low. If there are no sperm at all in the semen sample, the condition is termed azoospermia. In such cases, the clinic will wish to see your husband to take a more detailed history and to examine him. In his history, specific questions will be asked about any past condition that may have affected the testicles. For instance, he will have to answer queries regarding whether he has had any operations in the groin area or for undescended testicles in childhood. The specialist will also ask questions to determine whether there has been any major injury or infection in the genital area.

Infected semen can be a cause of infertility. Earlier, it was believed that mumps could cause sterility in men. However, it is now known that even when the testicles are involved in mumps orchitis (very painful swelling of the testicles), it is extremely rare for this to lead to sterility.

What other factors affect sperm production

  1. Heat can have a detrimental effect on normal sperm production. It is for this reason that nature has placed the testicles outside the body in the scrotum rather than in the abdomen like the ovaries. Some infertile men soak themselves in a bathtub full of scalding water and emerge looking like lobsters. This can almost stop sperm production completely. Obese men can also become sterile because the sagging layers of fat can overheat the testicles. Men whose jobs involve long hours of sitting, e.g. long distance lorry-drivers may have infertility due to the increased heat to the genital area.
  2. Very frequent intercourse can lead to the demand exceeding the supply. There are quite a number of infertile men whose sex drive is such that they must ejaculate 2-3 times a day. This explodes the myth that links infertility to lack of virility. It can be extremely difficult for these men to reduce their ejaculation rate to every 48 hours.
  3. Smoking over 20 cigarettes a day has been shown to reduce both the sperm count and the sperm motility to quite a major degree.
  4. Excessive alcohol intake will lead to infertility mainly because a man loses both the inclination and the ability to rise to the occasion! Alcohol can also lower the production of sperm and of the male hormone testosterone.
  5. The workaholic husband can find that fatigue can have similar effects on his interest in intercourse as excessive alcohol intake.

What problems can be identified during examination ?

Every infertile man must be carefully examined. The examination of the external genitalia in the male rarely shows anything out of the ordinary. However, sometimes one or both testicles are very small or rarely may even be absent. Additionally there may be congenital absence of each vas deferens, the ducts through which sperm pass from the testicles to the female at intercourse.

Other factors which may contribute to lowered fertility, and which can be identified on examination include:

  1. Varicocele is a term used to describe a condition where there are varicose veins around the testicle and vas deferens. In the case of varicoceles, there is an increase in the blood flow and temperature around the testicle. Even a small varicocele may be significant and affect sperm production.
  2. The presence of excessive fluid around the testicle is known as a hydrocele.
  3. There can occasionally be anatomical defects in the development of the penis. Consequently, during intercourse and ejaculation the sperm cannot be deposited within the vagina very easily. Retrograde ejaculation is a rare condition when some men ejaculate backwards into the bladder. This could be the result of earlier surgery to the urethra (the outflow tube from the bladder).
  4. A rectal examination can help determine whether the prostate gland may be a source of chronic infection.

Assessment

Male infertility could be due to various disorders. A comprehensive analysis will only determine the cause of male infertility. Here are some male fertility disorders.

Azoospermia

Azoospermia characterized by the absence of sperm is either due to an obstruction in the outflow system from the testicle, in the epididymis or vas deferens, or due to a failure in sperm production (spermatogenesis). If a biopsy of the testicle showed that spermatogenesis was normal, this would then indicate that an obstruction was the cause of his azoospermia. Vasograms, which are X-rays of the vas deferens can then be performed to identify the location of the obstruction.

Presence of Antibodies

Sometimes, a semen sample when seen under a microscope, will show sperm clumping. This may indicate the presence of sperm antibodies that are causing the sperm to stick together. A blood sample can be tested for the presence of agglutinating and other sperm inhibiting antibodies.

Klinefelter’s Syndrome

Very small testicles may be the manifestation of Klinefelter’s Syndrome. This is caused by a chromosomal aberration. Thus, a chromosome investigation will show the presence of an extra X (female) chromosome.

Hormone Disorders

Hormone disorders are rare causes of male infertility, but it may sometimes be helpful to check his F.S.H., L.H., testosterone (male hormone), prolactin and thyroid hormone levels.

Bacterial Infection

The existence of an excessive amount of white blood cells in the semen sample may indicate that an infection may be reducing the ability of the sperm to fertilise an egg. The semen sample should then be cultured to determine the type of infecting bacterial organism.
