Dr Batra replies

Karim Asif: I am 33 years old man and I have type 2 diabetes. I am based in Chennai and need more information about the homeopathic medicines, which I can use to control my blood sugar.

Dr Batra: Most diabetics are dependent on their oral anti-diabetic medicines and insulin. A sudden withdrawal of these medicines can have adverse effects on the patients including going into a coma. Diabetics already on allopathic medication while starting homeopathic medication should not suddenly stop allopathic medicines and should gradually taper them off while regularly checking their blood sugar levels. In a study carried out in Athens for Diabetes Type 2, patients on Homeopathic Medicine and Oral Anti-Diabetic Medicine showed 97 per cent control in diabetes while those only Oral Anti-Diabetic Medicine showed 47 per cent control in diabetes. Thus, a combination therapy of Homeopathic and Allopathic medication showed 50 per cent extra improvement in the control of diabetes.

Rajeev: I am 50 years old and a lazy type of person, I do have high blood pressure but am on medication and am on the healthier side. All of a sudden my energy levels are very low and I am in no mood do anything but keep feeling weak.

Dr Batra: The sudden drop of energy levels is due to the fluctuating blood pressure. Keep having your regular medicines of blood pressure. Do not miss any dose. Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of hypertension. The treatment aim is to control it rather than to cure it. Homeopathy when combined with anti-hypertensive medicines helps in controlling blood pressure more effectively than patients only on anti-hypertensive medicines. However, the patient can gradually taper the dose of anti-hypertensive medicines. It is generally believed that if the patient’s blood pressure is under control for a period of 5 years without medication, he need not take medicines for the rest of his life but should be monitored on a regular basis.

Dr Batra: Homeopathy can be applied to a modern-day problem faced by millions of men and women. Homeopathy works on deeper levels and it has achieved success in many infertility cases. In your wife’s case, she is suffering from endometriosis, which is overgrowth of uterine tissue, hormonal imbalance and poor egg quality. We would want to know more details about your wife regarding her personality, nature and personal life-style habits as part of our homeopathic case history. This will help us to prescribe the correct medicine, which can help her to get rid-off the obstacles regarding conception. At times it is fear, anxiety, some deep seated mental stress which manifests in our physical body in the form of abnormalities like endometriosis, poor egg formation etc. Homeopathy tackles this root cause. However, in severe cases, surgery may be required for endometriosis.

Digvijay Sharma: My wife is suffering from infertility. Doctor\'s says it is polycystic ovary and the ovulation is not happening. Follicles are immature and doesn’t release eggs without infertility related treatment. Can you prescribe some medicine.

Dr Batra: Infertility cases due to Polycystic ovaries can be very successfully treated through homeopathy. In fact, Homeopathy is the best option in cases of Polycystic Ovaries rather than the traditional hormone therapy. Need not worry.

Basava: Hello Sir, I am 25 year old male, working in a MNC in Bangalore. My problem is hair fall, I am losing my hair from two years. I am afraid for going to be a bald at this age. Can you please advice me, what are products you have in Homeopathy for this problem and how much cost it may take for the treatment.

Dr Batra: Losing hair at an early age is mostly a hereditary problem. But it can also be due to other reasons such as not able to cope with stress, bad eating habits, indulging in smoking etc. You ought to correct your condition before its worsens. Homoeopathy treats hair loss not from the scalp but from within, internally. Even today, hair loss has been treated with local medication with a narrow understanding that it is not a local disorder but it needs to be treated with internal medicine by treating the root cause of your hair fall. There are several causes of hair fall. An average loss is between 50-120 hairs, which is normal. It is mandatory that you lose some hair everyday, which is a part of the hair growth cycle. The hair, which has completed its cycle fall off and new hair grows in its place. But when this hair fall increases, it is then that you have to be alarmed. But need not worry; everything can be taken well care of if treated correctly with the right treatment.

We also have the latest advanced technology for hair treatment such as Trichoscan which measures the hair density, Piler Light Therapy and Low Level Laser Comb which enhances hair growth.

Along with medications, you also need to look into other lifestyle modification factors like regular exercise, healthy food and is there any addictions like smoking or alcohol.

Need to study your stress level also, as it can be a major contributing factor to continued high blood pressure.

We can definitely help you out with constitutional homeopathic medicine, which requires detailed case history.

Virendra Sahdev: I have allergic polyps in both my nostrils. Does Homeopathy have a cure without using steroids?

Dr Batra: Homeopathy is the best preferred medicine for allergic cases. It reduces the dependency of the patient on inhalers and steroids. In fact, if the person is free from his/her allergic problem for consecutively 5 years without any major attack, he can stop using the medicine as his body becomes susceptible to fight infection and his resistance power increases.

Dr Batra: The sudden drop of energy levels, fumbling while talking and losing confidence is due to fluctuating blood pressure and mood swings. Keep having your regular medicines of blood pressure. Do not miss any dose. Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is a sign of some underlying disorder.

Homeopathy treats psoriasis internally with a holistic approach. However, if you are free from psoriasis exacerbation for consecutive five years, you can stop taking the medicines. A 3-year pilot study was conducted on Psoriasis evaluating the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment at St. Margaret’s Surgery, Bradford on Avon, Wilts. 97 per cent of respondents experienced improved sense of well-being with no harmful side-effects.

Pavan: Hi Mr Batra, Is there any medicine in homeopathy for weight reduction?

Dr Batra: Homeopathy offers a safe and painless weight-loss solution for obesity. Since it is based on natural medicines in minute doses, there are virtually no side-effects while undergoing a weight-loss program through Homeopathy. Also at our clinics, the weight-loss is scientifically monitored through a ‘Body Composition Monitor’ which not only measures the weight but also Body Fat, Bone Mass, Visceral Fat, Muscle Mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Total Body Water Content and Metabolic Age. With Homeopathic treatment, there are very little chances of the usual side-effects of weight-loss like dehydration, anaemia, menstrual irregularities and hair-loss.

We believe that losing weight is not just about looking good but about being healthy and avoiding medical diseases. Homeopathic treatment helps in 3 distinctive ways in patients of obesity,

1. It treats the underlying medical causes of obesity like hypothyroidism, hormonal causes like PCOD through constitutional treatment which involves a detailed case-taking and examination where the treatment is individualized and the medicines vary from patient to patient.

2. We believe that in many cases, food constitutes emotional deprivation. Many people eat to compensate for lack of love and affection. While some people lose appetite when they are under stress or depression, others tend to eat more. Homeopathy takes into account the emotions of a patient while prescribing treatment. For example an indolent, inactive obese patient may need ‘Calcarea Carb’ while a depressed, timid obese patient may need ‘ Graphites.’

3.Clinical Research has been done internationally which shows that certain homeopathic medicines are useful in reducing weight as they help the patient to burn calories faster by speeding up the metabolic rate. One such medicine is prepared from an extract of sea-kelp, a homeopathic remedy for over 100 yrs which has been researched and accepted by ‘UK Medicines Control Agency.’

Homeopathic treatment together with minimal life-style modification in nutrition and exercise is an answer to obesity.

The implantation is a very painful procedure and it needs to be done by a thorough professional or else tit disfigures the entire cosmetic look. However, there are side effects related to hair implantation such as treatment failure, rejection of hair tissue, infection etc

Nis Ahuja: I am 28 years old male and for last five years, I am suffering from frequent (twice in a week) nightfall accompanied with sexual dreams. Most of the times it happens during wee hours in the morning. Frequency increases with constipation and non-veg food intake. It has made me really weak – both mentally and physically. Please suggest remedy. I shall be ever grateful.

Dr Batra: Mr Ahuja, you don’t have to worry about the involuntary ejaculation where the ejaculation occurs during sleep or what is known as ‘night falls’. It’s normal physiological phenomenon, which is repeating 1 – 2 times a week or less before start of the regular sex life or systematic masturbation practice. Beginning of nocturnal emissions tells about reaching of certain level of sexual maturity. Nocturnal emissions usually occur with erotic dreams which after deep sleep might not be remembered after waking up. Since centuries, the Indian male has been told that the loss of semen is bad for health. Medically, this is not correct. In fact in some community if a man experiences an episode of nocturnal emission he would be so upset that he goes to a doctor with a complaint that he was visited by a "Shaittan" (Devil) at night!! Its high time, that we wake up and get educated about the harmless effects of masturbation. It’s an absolute myth that frequent masturbation or nocturnal emission produce weakness. Homeopathy deals with such conditions very effectively.
