Homeopathic medicines for Glomerulonephritis

glomerulonephritis

Are you looking for a homeopathic cure for glomerulonephritis? This article discusses the homeopathy treatment of glomerulonephritis along with the best homeopathic medicine for glomerulonephritis treatment.

A group of disorders that cause inflammation of the glomeruli (Glomerulonephritis). These are filtering units in the kidneys that help filter out waste products and water and salt from the blood. Over time, the inflammation can lead to loss of kidney function.

It may present with isolated hematuria and/or proteinuria (blood resp. protein in the urine); or as a nephrotic syndrome, [1] a nephritic syndrome, acute renal failure, or chronic renal failure. They are categorised into several different pathological patterns, which are broadly grouped into non-proliferative or proliferative types. Diagnosing the pattern of GN is important because the outcome and treatment differs in different types.

Homeopathy Treatment & Homeopathic Remedies for Glomerulonephritis

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines for glomerulonephritis are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The homeopathic medicines for glomerulonephritis given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition. The symptoms listed against each medicine may not be directly related to this disease because in homeopathy general symptoms and constitutional indications are also taken into account for selecting a remedy.

None of these homeopathic medicines for glomerulonephritis should be taken without professional advice.

Causes of Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis is the inflammation of glomerulus. Anything which  cause inflammation in the body may be responsible for this disease.

Autoimmune disease is a mojor cause for glomerulonephritis. Inflammation is an immune response to kill any harmful agent in body. When immune system start killing body’s own cells is known as auto immune disease.

Primary causes are ones which are intrinsic to the kidney which are responsible for inflammation, whilst secondary causes are associated with certain infections (bacterial, viral or parasitic pathogens), drugs, systemic disorders, etc.Common cause is streptococcal throat infection. 

What happens in Glomerulonephritis?

Acute C (AGN) is active inflammation in the glomeruli. Each kidney is composed of about 1 million microscopic filtering “screens” known as glomeruli that selectively remove uremic waste products. The inflammatory process usually begins with an infection or injury (e.g., burn, trauma), then the protective immune system fights off the infection, scar tissue forms, and the process is complete.

There are many diseases that cause an active inflammation within the glomeruli. Some of these diseases are systemic (i.e., other parts of the body are involved at the same time) and some occur solely in the glomeruli. When there is active inflammation within the kidney, scar tissue may replace normal, functional kidney tissue and cause irreversible renal impairment.

The severity and extent of glomerular damage—focal (confined) or diffuse (widespread)—determines how the disease is manifested. Glomerular damage can appear as subacute renal failure, progressive chronic renal failure (CRF); or simply a urinary abnormality such as hematuria (blood in the urine) or proteinuria (excess protein in the urine).

Sign and Symptoms of Glomerulonephritis

SYMPTOMS

SIGNS

Types of Glomerulonephritis

Acute Glomerulonephritis

A disease most common in children, characterized pathologically by diffuse inflammatory changes in the glomeruli and clinically by usually abrupt onset of microscopic haematuria, Proteinuria, oedema, hypertension, and impaired renal function with or without oliguria.

Chronic Glomerulonephritis

A slowly progressive disease, chronic Glomerulonephritis is characterized by inflammation of the glomeruli. Which results in sclerosis, scarring, and eventual renal failure. This condition usually remains subclinical until the progressive phase begins, marked by Proteinuria, cylindruria, and haematuria. Chronic Glomerulonephritis is usually irreversible.

COMPLICATIONS

Conventional Treatment for Glomerulonephritis

Immune system play a major role in glomerulonephritis, because inflammation is an immune response to kill any harmful agent in body. When immune system start killing body’s own cells is known as auto immune disease.

Immunosuppressive therapy is treatment in which medicine suppresses over activity of immune system.
