School of Homeopathy: The five homeopathic remedies for memory loss

School of Homeopathy:  The five homeopathic remedies for memory loss

Anacardium: Memory loss is abrupt. It can be found in the elderly or persons who are over-fatigued, nervous. Students cannot bear any form of mental activity because it immediately produces a pensive orbital headache that, however, improves with eating. Anacardium mental, nervous or even gastric disorders always improve with rest. Baryta carbonica: Memory loss can affect children who are unable to fix their attention, they forget any recommendation, whose training and education are impossible. In adults and the elderly memory loss is relevant to their names, some common use words, the topography of a neighborhood, which explains why they get lost in the streets they know well. In children, this memory loss is related to mental development delay. The child is generally weak, with slight delay of mental and physical development, and hypertrophy of adenoid tissues, tonsils and lymph nodes. The adult and the elderly are arteriosclerosis in hypertension that leads to a state of physical and mental weakening. Colibacillinum: Loss of short term memory in patients suffering from intestinal colibacillosis or genitourinary infection. The subject is unable to remember what they are reading or listening to. In addition, they often use, during conversation, one word for another. Lycopodium: It is very particular memory loss. The subject does not find the right words to express himself/herself: confusing words, syllables. When writing he/she forgets letters, words. It is generally a fatigued individual, who works with difficulty, extremely irritable, speaks vehemently, outbursts of anger and cerebral difficulties are disturbing and reflect the poor state of the liver and kidneys. Marked liver failure with increased blood urea. Gall and kidney stones. Sulphur: It is an autointoxicated that badly eliminates toxins until its remedy has not taken root. General autointoxication which manifests itself through the loss of memory, great physical and mental fatigue, particularly in the morning, especially if one must remain standing for a long time, with insomnia or light sleep, headaches, indigestion, burning sensation of the feet that forces one to look for a cool place in bed at night and rashes that worsen with heat and washing.

Gut microbiota-bone axis

Gut microbiota-bone axis

Have already for some years now that we talk and we study the immense world of the microbiota, an important regulator of homeostasis of the body, including intestinal and extra-intestinal effects, even you compare it to an immense body of him with all his independent features; it is also considered a “second brain”, but the most interesting discovery in recent months, carried out by the University of Toronto, Canada, is its close relationship with the skeletal system. For several years he was associated with the beneficial relationship between the osteoporotic disease and microbiota, but this study focuses on the effect of the influence of the intestinal microbial communities and molecules that synthesize and regulate bone health. While research in this area is limited, the results of preclinical studies claim that the intestinal microbiota has a positive impact on the parameters of bone mineral density and strength. Moreover, the administration of probiotics in preclinical models have demonstrated greater bone mineralization and increased bone strength in treated patients. The kind of preferential bacteria that has shown these beneficial effects on bone is Lactobacillus and then lactobacilli are among the best candidates for future clinical intervention studies. However, their effectiveness depends on the stage of growth, in fact, usually it is the first few years of life that are an important opportunity to determine bone health, especially through the modulation of the microbiota. Also, the difference of sex specific influences the efficacy of probiotics. Although auspicious, many questions about the microbiota-axis bones require consideration of potential mechanisms; specific effectiveness in relation to sex; the effective dose of probiotics; and the timing and the duration of treatment. But we can definitely say that this study opens up another interesting port on the universe of the intestinal...

The Mediterranean Diet and ADHD in Children and Adolescents

The Mediterranean Diet and ADHD in Children and Adolescents

An interesting study conducted by the University of Barcelona and published in Pediatrics. January 2017 showed a higher risk for the disorder attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among children and adolescents who are less adherent to the Mediterranean diet than most members. They are always carried out studies on the relationship between low quality of food and the higher risk of ADHD, but had never been performed studies regarding the Mediterranean diet and ADHD. The association between a low adherence to the Mediterranean diet and the likelihood of a diagnosis of ADHD remained significant even after adjustment for confounding variables such as body mass index, physical activity level, maternal smoking during pregnancy, and social conditions. The study included 60 children and adolescents who had recently been diagnosed with ADHD and 60 participants by sex and the same control (age for all participants, from 6 to 16 years). The two groups were compared with respect to dietary intake and adherence to a Mediterranean diet. In all children control tests and adolescents with ADHD they have shown statistically significant data to lower scores of adherence to a Mediterranean diet compared to controls. For example, compared to the control group, those who had been recently diagnosed with ADHD had significantly lower probability of consumption for a second portion of fruit every day. They also consumed less fresh vegetables or cooked one or more times every day or pasta or rice almost every day. In addition, the percentage of subjects with ADHD eat more often in a fast-food. In addition, a significantly greater percentage of patients with ADHD jumped the breakfast compared with control participants. Both groups consumed fish, dairy products, baked goods or with relatively equal frequency. Similarly, patients with ADHD have consumed about twice the sugar and candy, in 4.7 g / day, compared to non-ADHD participants, at 2.4 g / day. Patients with ADHD also consumed more soft drinks (41.1 vs 22 g / day) and cola-based drinks (17.2 g / day vs 9.2 g / day). We must also consider the inverse relationship of the study, ie the possibility that individuals with ADHD can make food choices (foods high in fat or sugar) to balance their traits of impulsivity or emotional stress. This observation seems to be confirmed, as the participants with ADHD who consumed sugary foods and drinks significantly more than the control persons. This involves a diet with poor quality that may lead to deficiencies of essential nutrients, such as iron, zinc, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids, which contribute to the cognitive growth and healthy physical. These nutrients appear to play an essential role in the etiology of ADHD and it is believed that this could...

BALANCE OF PH IN URINE

BALANCE OF PH IN URINE

PH is the unit of measurement of the degree of alkalinity or acidity of a particular liquid. In our body, the normal pH has a value of 7. Above this value it has an excess of acidity, below, instead, an excess of alkalinity. The human biochemical processes function properly only if the pH is at a stable value of 7. The pH of urine reflects the renal ability to maintain a normal concentration of hydrogen ions in plasma and extracellular fluid. This result is mainly obtained through the reabsorption of sodium and secretion of hydrogen and ammonium ions by the renal tubules. The pH of urine can vary within a rather broad normal range. Unlike blood for which oscillations of ± 0.4 points are in itself an indicator of extremely serious diseases, the pH of urine is normally between 4.6 and 8, in relation to the diet and to the health of the body. In our bodies, there are buffer systems that regulate our pH. It is however noted that improper feeding, deficient trace elements and vitamins often leads to a metabolic acidosis; in particular in a body that presents pathologies, it is a true acid generator. This is because, due to the deficiency of these nutrients, which are important catalysts of enzymatic reactions, some chains of the chemical metabolism are blocked, resulting in the accumulation of acids. Urinary pH allows us to identify the excess of acidification in the organism due to deficiency of trace elements and vitamins. Therefore, it is necessary to supplement your diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and supplement with alkalizing...
