Homeopathy has had many miraculous cures in last 2 centuries. Our touch with homeopathy was not for rare miracles to make happen, but for mass cures.
Unlike allopathic or conventional treatment homeopathy provides safe, gentle and permanent cure.
In allopathic or conventional treatment of epistaxis or nose bleeding vasoconstrictors are given as a local application like oxymetazoline or phenylephrine. In chronic cases of epistaxis allopaths give an antibiotic ointment for local application in which the root cause remains untouched. These local applicants can cause various side effects.
If local allocations do not help next procedure in the conventional or allopathiy treatment is the chemical cautery of the effected vessel using silver nitrate which is to be done under anesthesia and is a costly procedure. This will not cure from its root.
In contrast homeopathic constitutional medicines not only cures but attacks the root cause of the problem resulting in complete cure and will save you from relapses.
Homeopathic treatment prescribed after a complete case taking firstly act on the affected area of the nose resulting in the stoppage of bleeding, removes swelling, reduces the pain, heals the injured tissues and then acts on the underlying cause of epistaxis like infections, bleeding disorders, and so on. The need of the other medicines patient is on like aspirin, medicine for blood pressure and so on also reduces slowly as medicines act holistically addressing all the complaints of the patient.
In homeopathy there are special anti hemorrhagic medicines like hammemalis, millifolium and so on which give marvelous results during the acute attacks of epistaxis to prevent severe blood loss.
In short the treatment is targeted towards the root cause of the illness and hence the disease is treated from the core. Homeopathy believes in treating the patient and not just the disease.
There are 316 medicines which give great relief in nose bleeding. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies of are designer made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.
What are Epistaxis?
Epistaxis is a medical term for nose bleeding.
The nose is a part of the body that is very rich in blood vessels (vascular) and is situated in a vulnerable position on the face. Nosebleeds can occur spontaneously when the nasal membranes dry out, crust, and crack.
It has been estimated that up to 60% of the population has had at least 1 episode of epistaxis throughout their lifetime. Approximately 5-10% of the population experiences an episode of active nasal bleeding each year. Fortunately, fewer than 10% of these patients visit a physician for this problem and only one of those ten will require hospitalization. The incidence increases with advancing age, during the winter months, and epistaxis is more common in males. Usually, in pregnancy, the bleeding of epistaxis is in small quantity and self limiting, but at times it can be severe & life threatening. That is why it should never be treated as a harmless event either from the diagnostic or therapeutic point of view.
