Could homeopathic med -thuja occidentials and sabal serrulata stops hairfall?

Could homeopathic med -thuja occidentials and sabal serrulata stops hairfall?

Possibly: Thuja occidentalis is one remedy known to help with hair loss. For best results in prescribing Thuja, one would look for more characteristics of the patient than losing hair alone, though. I could not find homeopathic uses of Sabal serrulata (commonly known as Saw Palmetto) in cases of hair loss or baldness. ...Read more

HSG test left tube block at fimbrial end, right normal.Doc suggested some heating treatment using electromagnetic waves and one inj daily.Will it open?

It depends on block: It will depend on whether the Fallopian tube fimbria is blocked from the inside by previous infection or blocked from the outside by adhesions and "kinking" of the tubal "fingers" The latter can be unblocked by surgery with lysis of the adhesions. The former block(internal) can maybe be opened by microsurgical recanalization. Please note that I did not mention electromagnetic waves at all. ...Read more

Is hydro citric acid & citrate lyase harmful with one kidney?

Is hydro citric acid & citrate lyase harmful with one kidney?

Effects on kidney: Citrate lyase is not harmful. The hydroxycitric acid (hydrocitric acid) in small amounts would not be harmful either. Large doses of hydroxycitric acid over time could potentially be harmful although there are no case reports or data to prove this. More important than having one kidney is knowing the kidney function is. Best answered with egfr a calculation of kidney function done by your doctor. ...Read more

Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?

Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?

Possibly capsaicin: The curcumin ; resveratrol are anti-inflammatory ; anti-oxidant with neuroprotective effects. There is a study suggesting capsaicin may damage neurons in 10 day old rats. I know of no evidence it can damage brains in humans; many eat peppers without obvious signs of brain damage but capsaicin might cause mild brain damage in some: http://onlinelibrary.Wiley.Com/doi/10.1002/cne.902960310/abstract. ...Read more

Is there any side effects with this homeopathic drugs  (1) baryta carb 30.  (2)  silicea 12x.  (3)  symphytum q?

No, but effects may:: With rare exceptions, homeopathic remedies are very safe and do not cause "side effects" but occasionally the effects of the medicines are an aggravation, which is a mild temporary worsening of pre-existing symptoms before you start feeling better. While this usually does not occur, when it does happen it is considered a sign that the remedy is having a positive effect on the patient. ...Read more

Age 19 + idiopathic chronic pancreatitis & tablets are creon10000 & ursoidal from 30dys. mrcp shows "ABRUPT cut in head with duct dilated" suggest.

Age 19 + idiopathic chronic pancreatitis & tablets are creon10000 & ursoidal from 30dys. mrcp shows "ABRUPT cut in head with duct dilated" suggest.

Complex solution: Not sure if this is truly idiopathic if on MRCP you have a distinct level of pancreatic obstruction with proximal dilation. See a GI specialist for ERCP with possible sphincterotomy or stent insertion. You may benefit from Whipple procedure if you improve with this and are not diabetic. This would be done by a general surgeon specializing in liver and pancreas surgery ...Read more

These are brand new: The drugs that you have mentioned are new anticancer drugs which are still experimental, not fda approved for general use. Your doctor(oncologist) has to answer all your questions that you ask before signing up for receiving these drugs. There is not a lot known about them yet. But azd6244 has been tested and found to have some anticancer activity. But more can be found out from your oncologist. ...Read more

ERCP done, post procedure was SOD2P w/mild pancreatic duct dilatation. ? Does SOD2P mean? They did a stent also.

ERCP done, post procedure was SOD2P w/mild pancreatic duct dilatation. ? Does SOD2P mean? They did a stent also.

Probably : that abbreviation probably refers to sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, type 2, which is an abnormal squeezing of the sphincter at the end of the bile duct. It sounds like your endoscopist treated it with a stent. Hopefully that will help. Good luck. ...Read more
