It is quite possible that you will start loving homoeopathy system.

Sick person has to decide which medical system is desirable during extreme crisis. A patient should have the basic knowledge of each of the existing medical procedures because doctors of any system do not advise the patient to go for any other medical treatment.

The state of growing old commences from the age of 40. Care between the two decades of 40 and 60 determine the future health, and so, the treatment during this period must be largely preventive. Many signs of diseases of the initial stage that prove to be disastrous and more painful during the last stage of life are mostly ignored.

 Most people experience diabetes like monsoon onset. Just like when there is no rain during most of the days, their clinical tests fail to trace any (interrupted rain like) diabetic symptoms. In the beginning it is like pre monsoon showers. Majority of non diabetic people are experiencing acute spikes of diabetic attacks when they consume some fruits like oranges. The quake-like shake-up in the bloodstream destroys many minute veins of the brain as well as other important organs.

Homoeopathy is a science that works better on characteristic symptoms of an individual and mostly fails to give desired results based on physical symptoms of any disease. 

The physical symptoms become prominent and more painful during the acute stage of the disease. Most acute conditions of a disease have its chronic foundation.

For example:

1. Intense itching patches on the skin may be the acute symptoms of chronic kidney failure.

2. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that usually begins in infancy or early childhood and is often associated with food allergy. It is said that allergies and asthma often develop in the same person.

3. Peptic ulcers and Rheumatoid arthritis often come together. People mostly remain concerned about painful arthritis while ulcers continue developing to fatal stages by use of strong anti pain allopathic drugs.

Homoeopathy recognizes a disease on the basis of  characteristic mental symptoms of an individual. There is no particular medicine name for most familiar diseases as recognised by present day modern science. However, some homeopathic medicines are found to be repeatedly used to cure most unpleasant acute symptoms of some common diseases.

For example: One characteristic symptom of “Ambra grisea” is that the urine will not start when anyone is around. That is, confusion of mind and embarrassment in the presence of other persons. As soon as he goes into company there is flushing, trembling, nervous excitement and the thoughts vanish. Sometimes there is numbness of single parts, fingers, arms etc. If such an individual is also troubled with asthma, diabetic symptoms or piles, “Ambra grisea” can be the primary medicine along with other medicines for acute symptoms. None of the homoeopathy books have suggested it for asthma, diabetes or piles.

Nearly everyone experiences a headache once in a while.

Although headaches can be defined as pain “in any region of the head,” the cause, duration, and intensity of this pain can vary according to the type of headache. In some cases, a headache may require immediate medical attention. Seek immediate allopathic care if you’re experiencing any of the following alongside your headache:

• stiff neck
• rash
• the worst headache you’ve ever had
• vomiting
• confusion
• slurred speech
• any fever of 100.4°F (38°C) or higher
• paralysis in any part of your body or visual loss

Every individual, after the age of 50, must get tested by allopathic procedures used to obtain health information of their body.

An individual has to decide which medical system is desirable at the time of an extreme crisis. A patient should have basic knowledge of each existing medical procedure as the doctors of any system never advise the patient to go for another medical treatment.

Even our medical education system requires improvement. The first two years of MBBS should be given to teach main features of every curative system, so that the doctors are able to assist the patients to choose the most appropriate curative system. For some stage of disease, yoga can give best results. 

To cure a disease is like fighting a war, and for that, the patient happens to be like a commander in chief of three different forces.

As per allopathic science, an individual can have headache by following causes:

Tension headaches, cluster headaches, migraines allergy or sinus headaches, hormone headaches, caffeine headaches, exertion headaches, hypertension headaches, rebound headaches, post-traumatic headaches.

A homeopath analysis the headache based on following symptoms:

Location of symptoms i.e., Left – sided, Right – sided, back of head, middle of head or over the eyes.

Caused by – Chill, Joy, Fright, Grief, Mental exertion, Suppressed eruptions, Overloaded stomach or constipation, Exposure to Sun, Suppressed menstruation.

Made worse by – Strong light, mental effort, Movement, noise or air conditioned enclosures due to lack of oxygen in air. Those with low blood pressure, indicating weak heart valves, will get headaches as warning signals of likely heart attachι during a long stay in an oxygen deficiency area.

Time of increase – Morning, Evening, and Night while sleeping. Improved by – Closing the eyes, bandaging the head, during rest or during sleep.

There are hundreds of different medicines for the same disease depending on characteristic symptoms of an individual. As the process of selecting a medicine is very complex, many doctors prefer hit and try as they can't spare enough time for every patient. Patients too don't understand the importance of some characteristic symptoms thinking that it may not be associated with their present ailment.

To get the best of homoeopathy, you need to be prepared to tell the doctor some of your very ugly mental symptoms and the doctor should also have enough time and patience to hear your symptoms. If the doctor is not willing to disclose the name of medicines for your ailment, find another doctor.

Till you find a suitable doctor you may begin with some very common homoeopathic medicines as first aid. It is better to continue the medicines with the approval of a qualified doctor. It is just an introduction to homoeopathy to those who have not yet tried it.

The next hour is lost when friends or family members fail to recognize the symptoms of heart attack.

Most heart attacks occur in the early morning hours of winter season or in a closed air conditioned environment.

1. The most common symptom of a heart attack is sharp and constricting pain in the center of the chest, which radiates to the left side of the body, particularly the left arm, and also to the back and between the two shoulder blades. The pain may also come up to the chin and cause jaw discomfort.

2. The person may sweat profusely.

3. Feeling light headed and momentary black outs are more common than feeling sharp pain.

5. Discomfort in the upper part of the abdomen and a burning sensation, which can sometimes be confused with acidity or heartburn.
