Swelling of feet homeopathy
Edema can be local (inflammatory,allergic, stagnant) and general (cardiac, hungry, renal, hepatic). The water retention in the body occurs by the incorporation of neurohormonal mechanisms of regulation of water metabolism - the hypothalamus, osmo and volumoreceptors, the anterior lobe of the pituitary (ACTH), the adrenal cortex (aldosterone), the posterior lobe of the pituitary (ADH). As a result, there is a delay in sodium and water (an increase in the reverse absorption of water from the primary urine).
Diuretics form an important sectionscientific pharmacology. In full accordance with scientific recommendations, pharmacological preparations block (according to the principle of Contraria) different parts of regulation of water exchange. Thus, a fast and reliable diuretic effect is achieved.
However, many drugs from this arsenal are notsatisfy us, because, removing water from the body, cause loss of sodium and imbalance of potassium. A consequence of this can be quite serious side effects: heart weakness, heart rhythm disturbances and leg cramps. After the action of such diuretics, there is usually a thirst, which negates the results of their intake. That is why any drug with diuretic properties should be welcomed, but without side effects.
Homeopathic medicines have considerableopportunities and are free of harmful side effects, but the payment for this advantage, as always, is the difficulty of individual selection. The choice is made not so much on the fact of puffiness as on the concomitant symptoms.
The main principles of homeopathy are Similia and the use of a potentiated form of medicinal substances. The mechanism of their action is unclear.
With swelling of almost any origin is shownApis (bee venom causes common and local edema), but most of all with allergic and renal edema. Their leading characteristic is a sudden development with great force. Most often, the patient swells around his face, eyelids and legs. The second clear characteristic of Apis edemas is the lack of thirst, and therefore it is easy to distinguish from cases of Arsenicum, when the patient suffers from insatiable thirst with water retention and various common or local edema, and after drinking, vomiting may occur, since the stomach does not tolerate water.
The benefits of potassium for the treatment of excessive accumulationwater in the body is known to the therapist of any school. Potentiated Potassium is able to perform better. That is why Kalium carbonicum is one of the leading homeopathic medicines shown for general puffiness. The constitution of such a patient is weak, the muscles are weak, the skin is soft and tender, the nervous system is tense, and the patient shudders from small noise (the threshold of excitability is reduced due to the release of potassium from excitable cells).
With cardiac edema shows Arsenic album (thirst) and Digitalis (in a material dose of digitalis in sensitive people causes swelling as a side effect).
Unlike Apis, which is mainly indicated for acute swelling, China is indicated for chronic edema, if there is weakness, loss of body fluids and bloating.
Not bad affect the swelling of the compound acetate -acid (Acidum aceticum) and its salts (especially potassium - Kalium aceticum). The swelling of the face, legs and other areas (even in the case of ascites) is accompanied by a waxy shade of the skin, thirst, but there must be gastric symptoms - sour eructations, heartburn, diarrhea.
Lithium - a neighbor of sodium and potassium by the tableMendeleev University. Sometimes it seems that the potentiated form of Lithium carbonicum affects the secretion of aldosterone. General puffiness is accompanied by inflammation of the joints.
With edema around the eyes, Kalium is preferredcarbonicum, if the upper eyelids are swelling (at the inner corner), Apis - with acute edema mainly in the lower eyelids, and in the case of Phosphorus the entire face is puffy and especially around the eyes. Colchicum - edema of the lower eyelid, if Apis and Arsenicum album did not produce a result. The drugs of choice are the homeopathic potencies of Thyreoidin and Thuja.
Homeopathic remediesthe advantage is that if the diuretic effect is successful, then there are no known complications in scientific therapy - compensatory intensification of thirst and symptoms of potassium deficiency (seizures and disturbances of the heart rhythm).
The tendency to fluid retention is a constitutional feature of a person.
Ancient doctors shared precisely this featuretwo types of human constitution - wet and dry. In addition to puffiness, there is a phenomenon of pastness, a kind of constitutional humidity. Homeopathic treatment is not able to change the constitution. Sometimes a patient (more often a woman) asks for help in the phenomena of pastoznosti. To put so the question - means to declare the struggle to the natural features of the organism.
