Ailing homeopathy college in Bhubaneswar

Students of government-run Biju Patnaik Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital in the town of Berhampur are forced to go to the neighbouring City Hospital for their one-year internship and other practical classes as the college has no in-patient department (IPD).
The 43-year-old college has only out-patient department (OPD). On an average around 200 patients visit the OPD, where two medical officers and college teachers treat the patients
The IPD has not been functioning due to staff crunch though the government had provided costly equipment worth Rs 20 lakh to the college around five years ago and a 25-bed indoor hall was constructed three years ago. The equipment, including ultrasound, X-Ray, urinalysis, blood analyzers and malaria test machines, are lying dumped in the hospital.

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Friday asked the medical fraternity to popularise Ayush-Ayurved, Yoga, Unani, Sidha, Naturopathy and Homeopathy as an alternative system of medicine to the much-publicised Allopathic system.
“Ayush system especially Ayurveda has comparatively lesser side effects than allopathy and is also cost effective,” said Badal while addressing a public gathering at the launch of four-day Arogya Mela, jointly organised by the Centre and State Ayush department in collaboration of the FICCI.
Badal emphasized the need to intensify efforts for undertaking research in the Ayurveda so that complicated diseases like Cancer, Hepatitis and Cardiac ailments could also be effectively cured.

Acute Diarrhea

The most common causes of acute diarrhea are infectious agents. Acute diarrhea also may be caused by ingested drugs or toxins, the administration of chemotherapy, resumption of enteral feeding following a prolonged fast, fecal impaction (overflow diarrhea), or particular situations, such as marathon running. Additionally, acute diarrhea may represent the onset of a chronic diarrheal illness.
Contributing factors include inadequate sewage disposal and water supplies, lack of refrigeration, overcrowding and lack of personal hygiene, poverty, lack of access to health care, and lack of education.

Patients with acute infectious diarrhea typically present with nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, and diarrhea, which may be watery, malabsorptive, or bloody, depending on the specific pathogen.Abdominal pain is mild, diffuse, and crampy and results from the high volumes of secreted fluid that stimulate peristalsis and cause watery diarrhea.

ADHD/ADD and Homeopathy

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders of childhood. Sometimes it’s referred to as attention deficit disorder. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD have trouble paying attention, may sometimes act without thinking about what the result will be, and, in some cases, are overly active.

Until recently it was believed that children outgrew ADHD in adolescence. This is because hyperactivity often diminishes during the teen years. However, we now know that many symptoms continue into adulthood. If the disorder goes undiagnosed or untreated, adults with the disorder may experience trouble at work and in relationships, as well as emotional difficulties such as anxiety and depression.

Mafia against AYUSH systems

Shivajinagar MLA Roshan Baig alleged on Thursday that super speciality corporate hospitals, along with pharmaceutical companies in the city, were running a mafia by not allowing other systems of medicines such as Ayurveda and Homoeopathy to flourish.
He was speaking at a ceremony organised by the Ayush department, where 28 renowned Ayush doctors were felicitated.
“The mafia is lobbying to suppress the Ayush forms of treatment,” Baig said. Ayush is the acronym for Ayurveda, Yoga/Naturopathy, Unani, Sidda and Homoeopathy systems of medicine.
Limbavali said there were treatments for dengue and chikungunya in Ayush forms of medicines and the government was bound to promote indigenous forms of medicines in the State.

The benefit of allopathic medicines and how they heal an ailment is well known but little do people in India are aware of the healing nature of home-grown and traditional medicines like ayurveda and unani.
To bridge this gap, Union Health Ministry will propagate the benefits of ayurveda, siddha, unani and yoga forms of medicine and how they can provide treatment to several diseases without any side effects.
Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad feels shows on Doordarshan and All India Radio will play a major role in creating awareness about Indian forms of medicines. "AYUSH is home-grown form of medicine. Everyone knows English medicine is good but it has side effects, but still people continue to use them. AYUSH does not have any side effects. We need to tell people the benefits of AYUSH," he said at the function.
