Asthma is a disease affecting the airways that carry air to and from your lungs. People who suffer from this chronic condition (long-lasting or recurrent) are said to be asthmatic.
The inside walls of an asthmatic’s airways are swollen or inflamed. This swelling or inflammation makes the airways extremely sensitive to irritations and increases your susceptibility to an allergic reaction.As inflammation causes the airways to become narrower, less air can pass through them, both to and from the lungs. Symptoms of the narrowing include wheezing (a hissing sound while breathing), chest tightness, breathing problems, and coughing. Asthmatics usually experience these symptoms most frequently during the night and the early morning.Homeopathy offers specialized treatments for Asthma without side effects
Kidney stones (also known as renal calculi) are stones of varying sizes, which form inside the kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder or the urethra. The kidneys are situated at the back of the abdomen and their function is to remove waste products from the blood and from the body in the form of urine, which passes down a tube called a ureter into the bladder.
If the concentration of a particular mineral in the urine is too high, crystals form which sometimes become kidney stone. Most kidney stones are only the size of a grain of sand but some may be large enough to fill the collection sack leading out of the kidney.
Kidney stones tend to form when the level of a particular substance in the urine is too high. This can either happen because the body produces too much of a substance due to a medical condition or because the persons diet is too high in that particular mineral therefore producing a higher concentration in the urine. Alternatively if the urine is very concentrated a stone is most likely to be produced. This is why a stone is most likely to occur in hot weather or in people who do not drink much fluid.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).
Diabetes is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels.
In 2013 it was estimated that over 382 million people throughout the world had diabetes (Williams textbook of endocrinology).
Type 1 Diabetes – the body does not produce insulin. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1.
Type 2 Diabetes – the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function. Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type.
Gestational Diabetes – this type affects females during pregnancy.
Psoriatic arthritis is a form of inflammatory arthritis that affects 10%-30% of the millions of Americans who have the skin condition psoriasis, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation. Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disorder characterized by frequent episodes of redness and itching; thick, dry, silvery scales on the skin; and nail abnormalities.There are five types of psoriatic arthritis. It is important to know which type of psoriatic arthritis you have and to understand its characteristics so it can be treated properly.
Symmetric psoriatic arthritis affects the same joints — usually in multiple matching pairs — on both sides of the body. Symmetric psoriatic arthritis can be disabling, causing varying degrees of progressive, destructive disease in 50% of people with this type of arthritis. Though symmetric psoriatic arthritis resembles rheumatoid arthritis, it is generally milder.Homeopathy offers specialized treatment.
