HYDROCEPHALUS AND HOMEOPATHIC TTREATMENT
Hydrocephalus is a buildup of fluid inside the skull that leads to brain swelling.Hydrocephalus means “water on the brain.” Hydrocephalus is due to a problem with the flow of the fluid that surrounds the brain. This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid, (CSF). The fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and helps cushion the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) normally moves through the brain and the spinal cord, and is soaked into the bloodstream.Too much cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) puts pressure on the brain. This pushes the brain up against the skull and damages brain tissue. Hydrocephalus may begin while the baby is growing in the womb. It is common in babies who have a myelomeningocele, a birth defect in which the spinal column does not close properly.Hydrocephalus most often occurs in children.
CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) levels in the brain can rise if:
- The flow of CSF is blocked.
- The fluid does not get absorbed into the blood properly.
- The brain makes too much of the fluid.
- Genetic defects
- Certain infections during pregnancy
In young children, hydrocephalus may be due to:
- Infections that affect the central nervous system (such as meningitis or encephalitis), especially in infants
- Bleeding in the brain during or soon after delivery (especially in premature babies)
- Injury before, during, or after childbirth, including subarachnoid hemorrhage
- Tumors of the central nervous system, including the brain or spinal cord
- Injury or trauma
SYMPTOMS OF HYDROCEPHALUS DEPEND ON:
- Amount of brain damage
- What is causing the buildup of CSF fluid
- In infants, hydrocephalus causes the fontanel (soft spot) to bulge and the head to be larger than expected.
- Early symptoms may also include:
- Eyes that appear to gaze downward
- Separated sutures
Symptoms that may occur in older children can include:
- Brief, shrill, high-pitched cry
- Changes in personality, memory, or the ability to reason or think
- Changes in facial appearance and eye spacing
- Crossed eyes or uncontrolled eye movements
- Difficulty feeding
- Excessive sleepiness
- Irritability, poor temper control
- Loss of bladder control (urinary incontinence)
- Loss of coordination and trouble walking
- Muscle spasm
- Slow growth (child 0 – 5 years)
- Slow or restricted movement
WHEN TO CONTACT IMMEDIATE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL:
Seek immediate medical care if your child has any symptoms of this disorder. Go to the emergency room if emergency symptoms occur, such as:
- Breathing problems
- Extreme drowsiness or sleepiness
- Feeding difficulties
- High-pitched cry
- No pulse (heartbeat)
- Severe headache
- Stiff neck
PROGNOSIS/OUTLOOK IN HYDROCEPHALUS:
- Without treatment, up to 6 in 10 people with hydrocephalus will die. Those who survive will have different amounts of intellectual, physical, and neurological disabilities.
- The outlook depends on the cause. Hydrocephalus that is not due to an infection has the best outlook. Persons with hydrocephalus caused by tumors will often do very poorly.
- Most children with hydrocephalus who survive for 1 year will have a fairly normal lifespan.
HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH TO HYDROCEPHALUS:
Homeopathic treatment can contribute to an effective and safe cure in preliminary every cause of Hydrocephalus disease. In chronic cases of HYDROCEPHALUS, Homeopathy can cure HYDROCEPHALUS without any medicinal side effect, compression of the nerves and also conclude the blood chemical imbalance that cause HYDROCEPHALUS. In very advanced cases of physical or emotional HYDROCEPHALUS, Homeopathic remedies along with a correct posture can facilitate in living better without any complaints or pain. We can aim for near normal in all other cases. The outcome of Homeopathy in HYDROCEPHALUS disease will be remarkable compared to other system of medicines or surgical interventions.
When other systems of medicine fail to work effectively, and if you want to live with natural, safe, gentle, non-toxic, effective and rapid acting medicines, to relieve the symptoms of sexual dysfunction, to experience substantial improvement in your outlook and quality of life consider Homeopathy.
