This paper presents the methodology of evolved-homeopathy, for preventing and curing problems of heart including angina pectoris, which is considered to be an alarming heart condition in conventional medicine (allopathy) that needs in many of the cases, immediate hospitalization and surgery. The methodology of evolved-homeopathy utilizes a few specific medicines for prevention, according to the first fundamental-principle of cure (‘prevention is better than cure’). For those who are still affected by mild angina due to their tension-ridden lifestyles, a few medicines need to be taken based on the ‘exciting cause’ (which is the third fundamental-principle of cure), to quickly cure, so as to fulfill the second fundamental-principle of cure (‘nipping in the bud’), so that minimum dead-tissue is formed, as revealed by the GDV (gas-discharge-visualization) whole-body diagnostic-chart. Anticipatory preventive doses can be taken whenever felt necessary, as these medicines are complementary type and are having no side effects. Excellent results of prevention, cure and dead-tissue removal using medication, can be achieved by those, who can take quick action based on their own understanding/experience, or on a quick consultation with their doctor. It seems evident that sincere followers of the three fundamental-principles of cure as mentioned above, can counter problems of heart including angina pectoris, and avoid the necessity of hospitalization and surgery<strong>.</strong></p> 2023-08-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advances in Medicine A critical review on kasa (cough) in children 2023-07-19T18:06:29+00:00 Sonali B. Sahane Renu B. Rathi <p>In the <em>Ayurvedic</em> classics, <em>Kasa </em>(cough) is considered as an independent disease. It may also occur as <em>Lakshana</em> (symptom) or <em>Upadarava</em> (complication) in other diseases. It is an example of <em>Pranavaha Srotas</em> <em>Dushti Kasa</em> is common signs and symptom in the childhood, when mother and father see a doctor. It suggests that even after improvements in modern scientific science, coughs in children are not always treated effectively. According to <em>Acharya Charaka</em>, the <em>Moola</em> of <em>Pranavaha Srotas</em> is <em>Hridya</em> (brain, heart) and <em>Mahasrotas</em>. <em>Acharyas</em> have described definition, etiological factors, prodromal symptoms, types of <em>Kasa</em> along with all <em>Pathya</em> (wholesome) and <em>Apathya</em> (unwholesome) and therapeutic measures. <em>Kasa</em> is manifested with the vitiation of <em>Vata </em>and <em>Kapha</em>. Understanding and differentiating Kasa is important for its effective treatment. The study of <em>Kasa</em> is necessary as it can be associated with many complications if left untreated. In this context different <em>Lakshanas</em> (symptoms) of <em>Kasa</em> in children are explained by <em>Acharyas</em> which can be used for diagnosis as well as prognosis of the disease. Thus, with help of this study alternate safe methods of treatment in children can be employed. So, its identification as <em>Kasa</em> can be a ray of hope for the diagnosis.</p> 2023-08-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advances in Medicine Face says it all: a curious case of non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis 2023-05-20T14:10:11+00:00 Abhishek Chanda Mayurbahan Mukherjee Mainak Mandal Mohammad Saddam Hossain Nirmalya Roy <p>Non cirrhotic portal fibrosis is a disease of obscure etiology and it causes portal hypertension, massive splenomegaly and well tolerated episodes of variceal bleeding young adults due to obliterative portovenopathy in young adults from low socioeconomic backgrounds, having normal or close to normal hepatic functions. It is also called as idiopathic portal fibrosis, though the etiology of NCPF is unclear but thought to be from chronic infections, exposure to medications and toxins, thrombophilia, immunological disorders are genetic factors. In India it accounts for 30 percent of variceal bleeds in non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis. The characteristic portal hemodynamics include intrahepatic perisinusoidal portal hypertension, increased splenic and portal vein blood flow and increased intrahepatic portal resistance. Patients can be misdiagnosed as having liver cirrhosis, but awareness of this condition by looking at the face and general condition along with diligent search of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension can identify this subset of patients who have better prognosis then cirrhotic patients with similar symptoms.</p> 2023-08-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advances in Medicine Neuroimaging in paediatric emergencies 2023-05-24T04:13:51+00:00 Uppalapati Tanmayi Abhinaya G. Adarsh E. Gautam M. <p><strong>Background:</strong> Neonatal and Pediatric population comprise up to 20% of emergencies and it is very important to choose appropriate imaging modality to diagnose early and treat accurately. These Pediatric emergencies require different approach to diagnose and manage compared to the adult population. This article will focus on the neuroimaging for evaluation and diagnosis that has more common and specific occurrence in paediatric population.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> Cases were selected based on inclusion and exclusion criteria and a single centre study was done using the scanners, imaging software and medical records from March 2021 to August 2022.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> 36 non-traumatic cases were further subgrouped based on the etiological factors; of which 13 cases (36.1%) had findings consistent with congenital abnormalities. The proportion of children with Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, Stroke, Infections and Neoplastic were 10 cases (27.7%), 9 cases (25%), 5 cases (13.8%), 4 cases (11.1%) and 4 cases (11.1%) respectively.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> Neuroimaging is the key in pediatric emergencies. The advancement in newer modalities of technology should be put into use more as a combined approach in diagnosis, management and prognostication as well as for early intervention to improve functional and psychological outcome.</p> 2023-08-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advances in Medicine
