Can homeopathic treatment work for breast growth?

Can homeopathic treatment work for breast growth?

Not for this alone: Homeopathic treatment won't help breast growth unless you're in your early developmental years, growing them. It's not suitable treatment for a 31-yo woman seeking breast enhancement. That said, it can help your overall health -- and if part of your problem is not eating well, etc, it may help your entire body fill out into its healthiest, most natural form. No guarantee about breast size though. ...Read more

Im asking about the scoliosis treatment, osteothritis treatment and cervical muscles spasam treatment?

Scoliosis / pain: That's a very broad question... Happy to answer details, but all of these 'questions' need their own explanation. Often they are connected, as scoliosis and imbalance can cause muscle spasms where the body tries to keep everything in line, while the spine undergoes a three-dimensional deformity over time. Osteoarthritis can effect the spine at all levels+contribute to pain and worsening deformity. ...Read more

24 yo male with classic pericarditis. Recurred despite treatment with colchicine, steroids, etc. What are the options for additional therapy.....?

24 yo male with classic pericarditis. Recurred despite treatment with colchicine, steroids, etc. What are the options for additional therapy.....?

Coxsackie B: Recurrent pericarditis is unlikely to be due to a bacteria. It is possible that Borrelia Burgdorferi infection or Moyamotoi can cause it although it is not widely accepted as a cause The most likely explanation is Coxsackie B infection. So I would check serologies and if positive you have only symptomatic treatment. Indomethacin can work well. Steroids also as might be the case here but should generally be avoided in viral infections. I would not let the neutrophilia put you off whether it is due to the steroids or not. ...Read more
