Acne (pimples) and homeopathy

acne pimples
Acne vulgaris is usually a self-limiting disorder primarily of teens and young adults.The reason for the expression of the disease in adolescence is the increase in sebum release by sebaceous glands after puberty. Small cysts form in hair follicles(comedones) due to blockage of the follicular orifice by retention of sebum and keratinous material.The bacteria and yeast like organisms within the comedones releases free fatty acids from sebum, causes inflammation within the cyst, and results in rupture of the cyst wall. An inflammatory foreign-body reaction develops as a result of extrusion of oily and keratinous debris from the cyst.

Suppression and its importance in medical treatments

Suppression and its importance in medical treatments
When a disease manifestation is caused to disappear before the disease itself is cured, it is termed suppression. The subject of suppression seems one of the most important from the homoeopathic point of view, but one of the least familiar to the ordinary medical mind. In regular medicine we are continually meeting with examples of suppression, indeed, from our point of view, all of usual medicine which is not unconscious homoeopathy is suppressive. There are various types of suppression. 
Suppressions may be accidental or natural and not due to medication of any kind such as, suppression of strong emotion due living circumstances. These are more or less conscious suppressions although the seriousness of their results is not usually known and the individual takes great pride and credit in thrusting down these emotions. There is another kind of accidental suppression which comes from great mental shocks such as mortification or grief.

The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to be awarded

Alfred Nobel
Courtesy:nobelprize.org
The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has today (2013-10-07) decided to award The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly to James E. Rothman, Randy W. Schekman and Thomas C. Südhof for their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells.
The 2013 Nobel Prize honours three scientists who have solved the mystery of how the cell organizes its transport system. Each cell is a factory that produces and exports molecules. For instance, insulin is manufactured and released into the blood and chemical signals called neurotransmitters are sent from one nerve cell to another. These molecules are transported around the cell in small packages called vesicles. The three Nobel Laureates have discovered the molecular principles that govern how this cargo is delivered to the right place at the right time in the cell.

AYUSH department failed to fully utilise the funds during the last three years

AYUSH
Even though adequate funds have been made available for the Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (Ayush) system of medicines in the country by the union finance ministry, the Ayush department failed to fully utilise the funds during the last three years. According to the latest data available with the union health ministry, the Ayush department could utilise only Rs.580.27 crores out of a revised estimated budget of Rs.670.00 crore during the financial year 2012-2013. 
However, the actual budget estimate for the year for the Ayush medicines was Rs.990 crore. During the current financial year till August 23, the Ayush department has utilised a paltry sum of Rs.197 crore against a budget estimate of Rs.1069 crore. The story is not much different during the previous years. In the year 2011-12, the department spent Rs.611.47 crore against Rs.900 crores of the budget estimate. However, the revised budget estimate for the year was Rs.650 crore. Likewise, during the year 2010-11, the department spent Rs.848.90 crore against the revised budget estimate of Rs.888 crore. The approved allocation of the Ayush department has been increasing progressively over the years.

Girls who eat more peanut butter could improve their breast health later in life. That's according to a study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Harvard Medical School. The research shows that girls ages 9 to 15 who regularly ate peanut butter or nuts were 39 percent less likely to develop benign breast disease by age 30. 
Benign breast disease, although noncancerous, increases risk of breast cancer later in life. "These findings suggest that peanut butter could help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women," said senior author Graham Colditz, MD, DrPH, associate director for cancer prevention and control at Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.

Consumption of cinnamon is associated with favorable reductions in plasma glucose and lipid levels, according to research published in the September/October issue of the Annals of Family Medicine. Robert W. Allen, Pharm.D., of the Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, Calif., and colleagues used data from 10 randomized, controlled trials involving 543 patients with type 2 diabetes to conduct an update of a previous systematic review and meta-analysis examining the effect of cinnamon consumption on glucose and lipid levels. 
 The researchers found that cinnamon, in daily doses of 120 mg/d to 6 g/d for four to 18 weeks, was associated with a significant reduction in levels of fasting plasma glucose (−24.59 mg/dL), but no significant effect on glycosylated hemoglobin.

Accordingly, Drugs and Cosmetics (Amendment) Bill 2013 was drafted and was tabled in Rajya Sabha last week.

'Arogyakiranam' to be clubbed with Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) in Kerala

NRHM kerala
The state government's ambitious programme 'Arogyakiranam' offering free treatment to all children aged below 18 will now be clubbed with the centrally sponsored Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK).
Under this programme the state will get Rs 30 crore in the first year for offering treatment to children. "Already many of the schemes under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) cover the health needs of the children. With the launch of RBSK we expect to cover the proposals under the Arogyakiranam project through all these schemes,'' said M Beena, mission director, NRHM
However, the state government has assured of funds if the pecuniary resources from RBSK fall short. In the first year it will not incur a huge expense as the scheme will be just rolled out. Institutions like regional cancer centre are already offering free treatment under various schemes to children.

Many Americans are undergoing needless thyroid biopsies, researchers say, and simplifying clinical guidelines would go a long way toward curbing the problem. The investigators from University of California, San Francisco analyzed the medical records of about 8,800 patients who underwent thyroid ultrasound scans. Reporting in the Aug. 26 online issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, they said that more than 98 percent of the thyroid nodules found in patients were not cancerous.
"Right now, we're doing far too many thyroid biopsies in patients who are really at very low risk of having thyroid cancer," study lead author Dr. Rebecca Smith-Bindman, a professor in the department of radiology and biomedical imaging, said in a UCSF news release.

Allopaths using Ayurveda?

Ayurveda , Allopathy
More than half allopathic doctors prescribe ayurvedic medicines! If you are dependent on ayurvedic medicines prescribed by your allopath, then you better think again before taking your next dose. Your doctor is as ignorant about ayurvedic medicines as you are. 
A study by the pharmacology department of KEM hospital has revealed that most of the allopaths who prefer prescribing ayurvedic medicines for ailments like liver disorder, arthritis, cough and cold, kidney stones and piles, have little knowledge about them. According to the study, 99% of the resident doctors did not even learn the basics of ayurveda but 67% of them prescribe ayurvedic medicines to their patients.
