Ankylosing Spondylosis

It usually occurs in a young adult, 15-30 yr. more common in males, presenting with a gradual onset of pain and stiffness in lower back. Initially, stiffness is noticed after rest and improves with movement. The pain tends to worse at night or in early morning, awakening the patient from sleep. He gets better only after he walks about or do exercises. The sacroiliac joint is usually the first joint to get involved followed by the spine from the lumbar region upwards, resulting in bamboo spine restricting the forward bending of a person. The results of homoeopathy is good in treating ankylosing  spondylosis and the patients are getting relief in their pain and stiffness and can live happily.

In Allopathy, NSAIDs are often effective in relieving the complaints but do not alter the course of the disease. The slow acting anti-rheumatic drugs ( sulfasalazine, methotrexate or azithropine )may control peripheral joint synovitis but appear to have little or no impact in suppressing axial disease.

In MANGLIK HOMEO CLINIC, A patient was treated with the same disease and was continuing allopathic medication when she reached us, now she is not taking any allopathic medicine and now finally homoeopathic medication is also been stopped by us since last eight months and now she is living happily being free from stiffness and pain in her body with her family.

Kidney Renal Faliure

This term is used to denote failure of the excretory function of the kidneys, leading to retention of nitrogenous waste products of the metabolism. It is of two types-Acute or chronic renal failure.

Acute renal failure(ARF) refers to a sudden reversible loss of renal function, which develops over a period of days or weeks. It can be due to various causes- commonly uncontrolled blood pressure, chronic urine infection, ureteric stones, benign hypertrophy prostate,urethral stricture, particularly drugs or medicines esp. diuretics, NSAIDs, pain killers, aminoglycoside antibiotics such as gentamycin,etc.  A history of loin pain, bloody urine, kidney pain/colic, or difficulty in voiding urine suggests the diagnosis. Patients are generally oliguric ( urine volume< 500ml daily), hyperkalemia (plama K+concentration>6 mmol/l), hypocalcaemia, oedema in ankles, below eyes or face with anorexia, nausea and vomiting, confusion, drowsiness, hiccoughs and finally pulmonary oedema may result. Patients with pulmonary oedema usually require dialysis to remove sodium and water. If treatment is given early, renal function will return rapidly but if treatment is ineffective, renal failure becomes established. In patients where dialysis is to be avoided, dietary protein is restricted to about 40g/day. Fortunately, tubular cells of kidney can regenerate and re-form the basement membrane and if the patient is supported during the regeneration phase, kidney function returns. Serum creatinine is the main investigation to diagnose renal failure.

Chronic renal failure(CRF) refers to an irreversible deterioration in renal function which develops usually over a period of years. Eventually loss of excretory, metabolic and excretory functions of the kidney leads to development of complaints of renal failure referred to as uraemia. Important causes are hypertension, diabetes mellitus, polycystic kidney disease, ineffectively treated ARF, etc. Patients may present with complaints such as breathlessness or tiredness, raised blood urea and creatinine, pallor, brown line pigmented nails, itching body, restless legs, bruising easily. Later, hiccoughs, itching, vomiting, fits, drowsiness and coma ensue. Restriction of dietary protein intake delays its progression esp. In non-diabetics.

In Allopathy, Dialysis is recommended to lower down the creatinine if it increases (above 6-7) and raised urea levels relieving the complaints but do not alter the course of the disease. And having little or no impact in suppressing  disease and finally resulting in kidney transplantation.

In MANGLIK HOMEO CLINIC, several patients are treated with the same disease and were continuing allopathic medication and some were on dialysis too, when they reached us.  Now they are not taking any allopathic medicine and now homoeopathic medication is enough to maintain the creatinine and urea levels under a nominal range(<5 usually) not requiring need for a dialysis.

Nocturnal Enuresis /Bedwetting In Children

Bedwetting or cloth-wetting in children over age of 3yrs., who fail to inhibit the reflex to pass urine when the impulse is felt during waking hours and those who do not rouse from sleep of their own accord when the process is occurring during the sleeping state. Usually the children learn to control the bladder by instruction and learning. If a mother fails to give her child an opportunity to empty the bladder when he/she first begins to announce that he wants to void, he is liable to be retarded in acquiring control. Moreover, some mothers didn’t realize that children vary in the age at which they acquire control and become worried and start punishing the child for his failure and then child responds by refusing to use the toilet or by wetting. Psychological stress like unhappiness, insecurity, jealousy, hospital admission, domestic friction, or excessive strictness may not only delay the acquisition of the sphincter control but may cause loss of control which has already been established.

   In Allopathy, at the present time, children are advised for bladder training or given anti-depressants, including amitriptyline and nortriptyline or sedative or a diuretic, anticholinergics, etc. causing side effects and children usually don’t recover from it and continue to suffer bedwetting into adolescence and adulthood.

In Manglik homeo clinic, Dr.Sachin manglik have treated a lot of children suffering from this problems, some children complain of doing bedwetting once or thrice regularly( even into adulthood), some complaints of wetting clothes during the day. Some also complain of doing bedwetting at night whenever eaten sour things only. All parents who have come to us with their child doing bedwetting and feeling very helpless regarding the cure of their child disease are cured in our clinic.

Renal And Ureteric/Urinary Bladder Calculus

Renal stones are stones most commonly composed of calcium oxalate(80%), some contain magnesium ammonium phosphate and some are of uric acid. The cause is generally low fluid intake, high protein or salt intake, low calcium diet, high oxalate or urate excretion. They vary greatly in size. They may be particles like sand anywhere in urinary tract, or large round stones in the bladder. It may be present for years without giving rise to any complaint. Mostly, patients present with pain, recurrent UTI, or red cells appear in urine. When a stone becomes impacted in the ureter, an attack of renal colic develops (an intensified pain radiating from flank to groin and genitalia) in a few minutes and the patient becomes restless, changes position often to obtain relief , and can often result in nausea and vomiting and sweating. The pain can subside within two hours or persist for hours or days. It is generally diagnosed by X-ray (K.U.B) or USG or IVU (more accurate) and generally discovered during radiographic examination for another disorder.

In Allopathy, analgesic is given to relieve pain or removed by lithotripsy or via endoscopic surgery. There is no medicine for curing renal or ureteric calculus or bladder calculus.

In Manglik homeo clinic, Dr.Sachin manglik, is expertise in curing this disease and giving excellent results in majority of the cases (some cases are listed with reports in our cured cases in this website). In homoeopathy, medicines are there for curing this disease and preventing recurrence of stone formation in the urinary tract in the future so one can get rid of this disease permanently in homoeopathy.

Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian Cysts

The ovarian cysts are fluid-filled pockets in an ovary or on its surface. Women have two ovaries on each side of the uterus. Eggs (ova),which develop and mature in the ovaries, are released in monthly cycles during the childbearing years. The risk of developing an ovarian cyst is heightened by taking fertility drugs or hormonal problems, endometriosis, pelvic infection pr previous ovarian cyst.

Most ovarian cysts present little or no discomfort and are harmless. However, a large ovarian cyst can cause Pelvic pain and heaviness or bloating in the lower abdomen on the side of the cyst, or increase in body hairs, dyspareunia. Most ovarian cysts develop as a result of your menstrual cycle (functional cysts). Other types of cysts are much less common.

The Functional cysts are usually harmless, rarely cause pain, and often disappear on their own within two or three menstrual cycles. Types of cysts not related to the normal function of your menstrual cycle include dermoid cysts (they contain tissues, such as hair, skin), cystadenomas (develop on surface of ovary) and endometriomas (endometrial cells grow outside the uterus). Dermoid cysts and cystadenomas can become large, causing the ovary to move out of position. This increases the chance of painful twisting of your ovary, called ovarian torsion. If not treated can enlarge and can cause intensified pain (ovarian torsion) and larger the cyst, the greater the risk of rupture. Be alert to changes in your monthly cycle, including unusual menstrual symptoms, especially ones that persist for more than a few cycles.

In Allopathy, a medicine is given in which there is no menses for a period of time when on medication or a hormonal therapy/oral contraceptive pills is given to dissolve the ovarian cyst. But curative rates are much less and generally the patient has to opt surgery (ovarectomy) finally.

In Manglik homeo clinic, Dr.Sachin manglik, has cured a number of cases of ovarians cyst (some are given in our cured cases)and also maintaining menstrual regularity every month. Homoeopathy has a good curative aspect in curing the ovarian cysts.
