Abstract
Objectives: The objective of present preliminary study was to assess the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-arthritic effect of some homoeopathic mother tinctures viz. Ricinus communis (RCMT), Rauwolfia serpentina (RSMT), Bellis perennis (BPMT), Curcuma longa(CLMT), Terminalia arjuna (TAMT) and Tribulus terresteris (TTMT).
Materials and Methods: Paw oedema was induced by administration of 0.1ml 1% carrageenan in normal saline into right hind paw. Degree of inflammation was evaluated according to paw swelling. Arthritis was induced by Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) injection in metatarsal footpad of Wistar albino rats.
Result: Curcuma longa and Tribulus terresteris mother tinctures reduced hind paw swelling decreased the paw volume in Carrageenan treated rats. Thus, revealed potent activity against inflammation. All homoeopathic mother tinctures showed peripheral analgesic activities in hot plate induced thermal algesia in mice.

Anti-rheumatoid and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic Guaiacum officinale in an animal model.

Sarkar A1, Datta P1, Das AK1, Gomes A2.

Author information
Abstract
BACKGROUND:

Homeopathy is a popular form of complementary and alternative medicine. Guaiacum extract is said to be useful for pain and inflammation, but there appears to be no scientific evidence to support this.

AIMS:

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic preparations of Guaiacum officinale (Gua) on experimental animal model.

DESIGN:

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was induced in male albino rats by Freund’s complete adjuvant (FCA) at a dose of (0.25 mg heat killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis/ml of emulsion). Gua mother tincture (MT) (prepared from the latex part of the plant) (MT), Gua 30cc and 200cc were purchased commercially from King Company, Kolkata, India. Male albino Wistar rats (130 ± 10 g) were divided into 6 groups: Sham control; Arthritis control; Standard treatment indomethacin (0.25 mg 100 g(-1) p.o. × 5 alternative days), Gua MT (1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (30c 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (200c; 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated. Anti-rheumatic activity was examined through physical, urinary, serum parameters. All the results were expressed in terms of mean ± SEM (statistical error of mean n = 6) at each dose level. The level of significance was determined through one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), p < 0.05 was considered significant.

RESULTS:

It was observed that body weight, ankle and knee diameter, urinary parameters (hydroxyproline (OH-P), glucosamine, calcium (Ca(2)(+)), creatinine (CRE), phosphate (PO4(3)(-))), serum ACP (acid phosphatase)/ALP (alkaline phosphatase)/Ca(2+)/CRE/PO4(3-)/gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)/Lipid peroxidation (LPO)/Glutathione (GSH)/Superoxide dismutase (SOD)/Catalase, serum GGT, serum interleukins like IL-1β/CINC-1/PGE2/TNF-α/IL-6, IL-12/IL-4/IL-6 levels were significantly affected. After treatment with Guaiacum in all 3 regimes was associated with normalization of these parameters compared to control group.

CONCLUSION:

These findings suggest that homeopathic G. officinale possesses anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity in experimental animal and these activities may be more significant in higher potencies.

Homeopathic approach to catastrophe and radiations problems; Fukushima, Japan by Torako Yui

Source of Original articlehttp://www.interhomeopathy.org/homeopathic-approach-to-catastrophe-and-radiations-problems-fukushima-japan

The Tohoku earthquake and the subsequent tsunami, which occurred off the Sanriku coast of Japan at 14:46 JST on Friday 11 March 2011, caused enormous devastation, mainly in eastern Japan, earning the name: the Great East Japan Earthquake. I am writing this article, in which I will briefly present the JPHMA’s activities, as well as my view on the meaning of this catastrophe, just one month after it happened.

fukushima

According to the Japan Metropolitan Police Department’s statistics, on 30 April 2011, the figures are as follows:
Deathtoll 14,662; Missing 11,019; Injured 4,373 among 12 districts including Fukushima, Gunma, Igaraki, Tochigi, Miyagi, Yamagata, Niigata, Yamanashi, Nagano, Saitama, Tokyo and Chiba. 2.500 shelters have been built in 18 districts, caring for 127,000 evacuees. 48.564 buildings have completely collapsed, spread over 9 districts.

The shock of this catastrophe is as vivid today as if it had just happened yesterday.

On the day of the earthquake, I wanted to go straight to the affected area, but as I had already been booked for lectures in western Japan and as there was no access to the east nor electricity in the zone, I had to postpone my trip. Initially, I could only offer remote support via text messages to mobile phones. JPHMA members in the affected areas had home kits of 36 homeopathic remedies and contributed outstandingly by distributing homeopathic remedies to their neighbours; many of them are indicated for the kind of physical and mental trauma caused by such a disaster but none of them were appropriate for treating exposure to radiation. The fact that JPHMA had given homoeopathic self-care lectures to the general public on a routine basis became a great advantage.

Another unexpected situation occurred, however, at the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant. In 1971, General Electric Mark I nuclear reactors were introduced and have been working for nearly 40 years. The earthquake and tsunami disabled the reactor cooling systems, leading to nuclear radiation leaks due to a partial melt of fuel rods.

At the time of the earthquake, there were 54 active nuclear power plants in Japan, which would have totalled 77 if inactive and newly planned ones were included. The fact that such a large number of nuclear power plants should be built in Japan, a country of earthquakes, is equal to pouring gasoline on a fire!

Luckily there was not a complete meltdown, as in the Chernobyl nuclear accident on 26 April 1986. In Chernobyl, the reactor exploded and melted, sending huge amounts of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. In Fukushima, the leakage is one tenth that of Chernobyl. 

Nevertheless, some international media have reported incorrectly that the whole reactor had exploded, releasing an atomic cloud, making Japan an extremely dangerous place to visit. The press used pictures of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb on 6 August 1945, next to pictures of land destroyed by the 11 March tsunami, implying incorrectly that the land was damaged by the nuclear power plant incident rather than by the tsunami. Products from Japan could not be exported and, even Japanese people started to avoid products from Fukushima. When I visited Fukushima, where vegetables and fruits are produced, people there were deeply depressed. A farmer in Fukushima had committed suicide because he could not sell his produce, which was about to be shipped out.

Let us consider the Arndt-Schulz law, one of the major principles of homoeopathy. According to this law, if we are exposed to a large amount of radiation, a small amount of the radiation could cure the ailments due to the exposure. If it is the exposure is minimal, our own healing power should be able to reverse the damage.

I have created a radiation remedy ‘RA’ to heal the effects of radioactive substances. It is a combination of Cadmium sulphuricum, Sol, Plutonium nitricum, Kalium iodatum, Radium bromide, Uranium nitricum, Caesium hydroxide, Thyreoidinum, and Parathyreoid gland. Caesium 137 was carried to neighbouring European countries after the explosion in Chernobyl, but people who were not exposed to great density of radioactive rain seemed not to be affected.

After all, huge amounts of radioactivity have been spread by more than 2,000 nuclear experiments all over the world. Therefore, we do not have to worry about radiation out of hand. On a daily basis, we should try to avoid any intake of harmful substances and use a treatment like homeopathy to stimulate our own healing powers and push toxins out of our bodies. Radioactivity is not the only dangerous pollutant we encounter: substances in vaccines, drugs, pesticides, and food additives are also harmful. I think this nuclear incident has demonstrated the necessity to replace harmful energy, medicine, and foods with healthy ones, derived from nature.

From the time of the earthquake to my visit to the affected area

Immediately after the earthquake, on 11 March, I contacted the Institute of Homoeopathy in Japan and started to distribute the remedies I had created: ‘RA’, as mentioned above, and ‘AAA’ (Aconite, Arnica, and Arsenicum), free of charge. I also offered information to the public through our website and by email.

On 18 March, a JPHMA rescue team, in conjunction with Homoeopathy Japan Co, set off for Fukushima and Miyagi with these remedies and relief supplies. As the motorway was closed, it took 12 hours to get there and 9 hours to come back, which is about three times longer than it would usually take.

I had already planned to give a lecture in Sendai city, in Miyagi, on 2 April before the disaster occurred, so I added visits to Fukushima on 1 April and Iwate on 3 April, where I provided RA and AAA remedies to about 400 of our members and to the general public. I gave free lectures to explain to people how to use homeopathic remedies in time of disasters.

To read the full details of the reports, please visit the JPHMA website: www.jphma.org/en/index.html

These reports are the result of my own experience in the affected areas and are quite different from the reports that can be seen in newspapers and other media.

The effect of the RA remedies and AAA remedies

We are currently analyzing responses to questionnaires after using these remedies.

The below chart is the result so far, as of 30 April 2011.

Summary

1. I sent ‘remedies’ of encouragement through text messages: “We are supporting you.” “You are not alone.”

2. We took action: JPHMA provided homoeopathic remedies free of charge with the cooperation of Homeopathy Japan Co. The College of Holistic Homoeopathy provided free advice by telephone.

3. JPHMA organised a rescue team, which immediately delivered homoeopathic remedies and relief supplies.

4. JPHMA held free seminars on how to deal with disasters and provide emotional care, with cooperation from local JPHMA members.

5.  After the seminars, local JPHMA members provided free homoeopathic consultations.

6.  JPMHA collected approximately 4,500.000 Japanese yen, which were donated to affected prefectures and areas in need.

We helped and encouraged each other, which created a strong bond between us and a feeling of unity. JPHMA members seemed to be getting over this disaster more quickly than the general public, probably because they had been taking homoeopathic remedies on a daily basis.

The real meaning of the earthquake and of the radiation leak this time

Samuel Hahnemann said:

“Nations like the Germans, who have for centuries been gradually sinking deeper and deeper in soulless apathy and degrading serfdom, must first be trodden still deeper in the dust by the Western Conqueror, Napoleon, until their situation became intolerable; their mean opinion of themselves was thereby over-strained and removed; they again became alive to their dignity as men, and then, for the first time, they raised their heads as Germans.” (Quoted from Organon 6)

Japan is reaching a turning point. Japanese people have been deprived of patriotic spirit and pride in their own heritage, from the fear of atomic bombs and a sense of guilt after the war. Ancient Japanese spirituality and wisdom, which live in harmony with nature, have been forgotten. Japanese people now deny nature’s healing power and dependency on unnatural energy, medicines, vaccines, and agro-chemicals has been encouraged. The lives of humans, animals, plants, and insects are suffering, as are the land, water, and air; Japan is now facing the risk of national ruin.

It could be said that the reality of this catastrophe is that it is a mirror of Japanese people’s mind. We hope that this devastating experience will become an opportunity for change, so that this suffering would not have been in vain. The real recovery for Japanese people would be to overcome their fear of radiation, to regain their natural healing power and their ancient wisdom of living in harmony with nature. Japan, as the site of a previous disaster with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, can be a beacon of hope for the world by showing that it is possible for a country facing the most extreme circumstances to recover and thrive once again. Homeopathy lies at the heart of this recovery and we, at JPHMA, will all do as much as we can to bring it into reality.

blossoming bud

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to everyone again: Interhomeopathy’s editors, Narayana Verlag, the people who visited Interhomeopathy’s Facebook and many other homeopathic colleagues around the world, who sent warm, encouraging messages and donations to JPHMA and me.

JPHMA Homoeopathy International Charity Conference, 8 – 10 October 2011.

Details and updated information from: www.jphma.org/congress2011/en/index.html

We would like to welcome you to witness the activities of Japanese homoeopaths and support them by attending this conference. I and all JPHMA members look forward to meeting you in Japan!

सर्दियों में सीजनल एफेक्टिव डिसॉर्डर (सैड) – Seasonal Affective Disorder or Winter depression

Portrait of the beautiful thoughtful girl. Autumn, grief, dreams and tenderness.

सर्दियों के दिनों अवसाद या डिप्रेशन की एक आम समस्या है ।  अवसाद कॆ  कारणॊ के पीछे कई वजह  हो सकते हैं लेकिन अगर आप सर्दियों मे दूसरे मौसम की अपेक्षा आलस, थकान और उदासीन महसूस करते हैं तो हो सकता है कि आपको सीजनल एफेक्टिव डिसॉर्डर (सैड) की समस्या हो। सर्दियों में अक्सर दिन के समय सूर्य का प्रकाश हमें कम मिलता है जिससे कई बार हमारी दिनचर्या और सोने व उठने का चक्र प्रभावित होता है। ऐसे में हमारे मस्तिष्क में ‘सेरोटोनिन’ नामक केमिकल प्रभावित होता है जिससे हमारा मूड बिना वजह खराब ही रहता है। कई बार यह स्थिति हमें अवसाद का शिकार बना सकती है ।
सीजनल एफेक्टिव डिसॉर्डर (सैड)  का वर्णन   मेडिकल सांइस मे सबसे पहले १९८० के दशक से दिखता है हाँलाकि इसके पहले कई चिकित्सक और रोगी भी इस बात से वाकिफ़ थे कि सर्दी का मौसम शुरु होते ही स्वभाव मे बदलाव दिखना आरम्भ हो जाता है । इस तथ्य का वर्णन पांचवी सदी ईसा पूर्व हिप्पोक्रेट्स  के कुछ आलेखों मे भी देखा जा सकता है । कई देशॊ मे जहाँ दिन काफ़ी छॊटे होते है और धूप का सर्वथा अभाव रहता है वहाँ अवसाद के रोगियों का मिलना एक आम समस्या है । जैसे स्वीडेन के उत्तर  भाग मे जहाँ छ्ह महीने रात और छ्ह महीने दिन रहता है वहाँ आत्मह्त्या की दर सबसे अधिक है ।

SAD के बारे मे कुछ तथ्य

  • कोई आवशयक नही कि ठंड मे रहने वाले लोगों को ही यह समस्या हो , जो लोग उन जगहों पर रहते हैं जहां ठंड कम पड़ती हो और बहुत अधिक ठंड वाले इलाके में आ जाएं।
  • महिलाओं में इस बीमारी की आशंका अधिक रहती है।
  • 15 से 55 वर्ष की आयु वाले लोगों में इसकी आशंका अधिक रहती है।
    सीजनल एफेक्टिव डिसॉर्डर से पीड़ित व्यक्ति के बहुत अधिक संपर्क में रहने वाले व्यक्ति को भी यह बीमारी हो सकती है।

SAD के लक्षण

  • लगातार थकान महसूस हो और रोजमर्रा के कामो मे मन न लगे ।
  • मन मे नकारात्मक विचारों का बार बार आना ।
  • सही प्रकार नींद न आना या बहुत अधिक नींद आना ।
  • कार्बोहाइड्रेट युक्त चीजों जैसे रोटी, ब्रेड या पास्ता आदि खाने का हमेशा मन करना ।
  • वजन का तेजी से बढना ।

SAD से बचने के उपाय :

  • अपनी दिनचर्या निर्धारित करे ।
  • रोजाना योग , ध्यान , मार्निग वाक और एक्सर्साइज करें ।
  • थोडा खायें और बार –२ खायें लेकिन खाने मे हरी सब्जियों और फ़लों का सेवन अधिक करें ।
  • सुबह देर तक न सोयें ।
  • सर्दियों मे संभव हो तो दोपह्र का खाना धूप मे खायॆ ।
  • इतवार को और अधिक खुशगवार बनायें ,  धूप का आंनद लेने के किसी पार्क मे जायें ।
  • अगर घर मे ही काम करना पडे तो कोशिश करे कि ऐसी खिडकी के पास अपनी टॆबल रखें जहाँ प्रचुर मात्रा मे धूप उपलब्ध हो ।

मेडिकल उपचार
आमतौर पर डॉक्टर सैड के मरीजों का उपचार दो तरह की लाइट थेरेपी से करते हैं- ब्राइट लाइट ट्रीटमेंट और डॉन सिमुलेशन। ब्राइट लाइट ट्रीटमेंट के तहत रोगी को लाइटबॉक्स के सामने रोज सुबह आधे घंटे तक बैठाया जाता है।
दूसरी विधि में सुबह सोते वक्त रोगी के पास धीमी लाइट जलाई जाती है जो धीरे-धीरे तेज होती जाती है। सूर्योदय जैसा वातावरण तैयार किया जाता है। इसके अलावा योग, अवसाद हटाने वाली दवाओं और कॉग्निटिव बिहेवियरल थेरेपी से भी इस बीमारी का उपचार किया जाता है।

होम्योपैथिक उपचार

SAD के रोगियों को देखने के दौरान निम्म रुब्रिक्स  जो बहुतायात रोगियों मे पाये जाते है  :

  • *Sadness, melancholy
  • *Feelings of worthlessness
  • *Hopeless
  • *Despair
  • *Sleepiness
  • *Lethargy
  • *Craving for sweets
  • *Craving for carbohydrates
  • *Company aggravates
  • *Desire to be alone
  • *Music ameliorates
  • *Difficulty concentrating/focusing
  • *Thoughts of death or suicide.

औरम मेट , फ़ास्फ़ोरस , सीपिया , रस टाक्स . इगनेशिया सर्दियों मे होने वाले अवसाद की मुख्य औषधियाँ है । हाँलाकि लक्षणॊ की सम्पूर्ण्ता ( Totallity of symptoms ) ही औषधि चुनाव का आधार है ।

लेकिन मुख्य औषधियों पर एक नजर :

Aurum metallicum is for those who sink into terrible depression in the dark of the winter feeling like the cloud is sitting over them. At their worst they feel that life isn’t worth living. They take solace in work and/or religion and hide themselves away listening to sad music until the sun returns the following spring.
Phosphorus has a really close relationship with the weather, loving the sun and sparkling with it – actually feeling invigorated by being out in the sunshine. They are deeply affected by cloudy weather – becoming miserable and gloomy the longer the sun stays away. In the deepest, darkest time of the winter they can slow right down, not wanting to do anything. Chocolate (especially chocolate ice cream) is their great source of comfort at those times – as are their friends. Even brief outbursts of sunshine on a winter’s day will lift their spirits, as can getting out with friends and going to a party or going dancing!
Rhus toxicodendron is useful for those who are particularly vulnerable to cloudy weather, who find that the cold, damp, wet and cloudy weather makes them feel just plain miserable. Their body reacts to the cloudy weather by stiffening up – especially the back and the joints – which makes them feel even worse. Getting up after sitting or lying down for a while is hard, and then continued movement eases the stiffness – unfortunately those joints start to hurt again if they are using them for a while so they have to rest – after which the whole maddening cycle starts again, thereby causing the restlessness that is a keynote for this remedy.
Sepia is for extremely chilly types who hate everything about winter: the damp, the rain, the frost, the snow, the clouds – everything. Their moods start to lift when they begin to get warm again in the late spring and early summer when they can get out in the fresh air and do some vigorous exercise. These people love to run much more than jog, and it is this kind of exercise – vigorous exercise in the fresh air – that makes them feel really well overall. If they can’t do it they sink into a depressed, irritable state where they want to be alone (and eventually, so does everyone else – want them to be alone that is!)

IHMA Fever guidelines Version1 released

Clinical evaluation of homoeopathic therapy in the management of hyperlipoproteinemia

Clinical evaluation of homoeopathic therapy in the management of hyperlipoproteinemia by  J.P. Govekar1, V.K. Paul, K. Singh, Praveen Oberai, , Varanasi Roja
Regional Research Institute (H), New Delhi
Central Council for Research in Homeopathy, Headquarters, New Delhi


Objectives:This study aimed at evolving a group of useful homoeopathic medicines in the treatment of hyperlipoproteinaemia, to identify their reliable indications, most useful potencies, frequency of administration and relationship with other medicines.
Methods: A prospective observational study was carried out during the period 1992-2003. Three hundred and twenty two patients with hyperlipoproteinaemia and various clinical presentations were studied. Patients of more than 30 years of age, with cholesterol > 200mg/dl, triglycerides > 170mg/dl, LDL > 150mg/dl, VLDL > 50mg/dl and HDL < 35 mg/dl were included in this study. Specificparameters were followed to assess the intensity of complaints and the improvement status.
Homoeopathic medicines were prescribed in different potencies (Q to 10M), basing on the presenting complaints, mental and physical attributes of the patients. The patients were advised to have low calorie diet and regular exercise.
Results: Two hundred ninety three (293) patients were followed up regularly and varying degrees of improvement were observed, viz. marked improvement in 77 patients, moderate improvement in 113 patients, mild improvement in 100 patients and no improvement in 03 patients. Abroma augusta 30, Gelsemium 30, Lycopodium 1M, Bryonia alba 30, Pulsatilla 30, Nux vomica 30 were found to be useful among the other prescribed medicines.
Conclusion: Results obtained from the study are encouraging with findings that 26% of the patients improved markedly with an evidence of changes in laboratory parameters. However, an experiment in controlled setting with improved protocol and clearer outcome parameters is required.
Key words: homoeopathy; observational study; hyperlipoproteinaemia; abroma augusta; gelsemium; lycopodium; bryonia alba; pulsatilla; nux vomica.
