Summers, nose bleeding and Homoeopathy
As we know some diseases are common in certain weathers, like summer season brings so many
infectious hosts and diseases with it, like food poisoning, diarrhoea, measles, chickenpox etc. In
countries like India where at some places temperature may rise above 50 degrees, sun and high
temperatures are enough in themselves to cause so many problems like headache, sun stroke, skin
rashes, burns, etc. Nose bleed during hot dry weathers is another phenomenon which is common among
population during summers.
Nosebleed in general can be caused by underlying medical conditions like hypertension, sinusitis,
allergic rhinitis, etc or may be simply due to nasal dryness or nose injury. It is mostly caused due to
rupturing of the tiny blood vessels in the nose due to hot and dry air.
Nosebleed or epistaxis in summers can be prevented by following some simple measures which do not
allow your nasal mucosa to dry up, for example if a person is prone to frequent nosebleeds he/she must
avoid going out in the hot weather but if u can’t, then it is advised always to cover up the nose with a
cotton cloth or handkerchief. Try to maintain a little humidity around in hot dry summers by placing air
coolers etc. Avoid blowing your nose hard which can cause rupture of weak vessels. Picking of nose
should also be avoided.
However, if nosebleed still happens after taking precautions, there is a first aid management that can
be followed to stop it-
*one should sit down calmly, and firmly pinch nose just above the nostrils for about 10-15 minutes.
*lean forward and start breathing through mouth so that the blood is drained in your nose instead of
going in throat.
*it is advised to place an ice pack on the bridge of the nose to let vessels constrict and stop bleeding.
*one should stay upright, as it reduces blood pressure in the nose and discourages further bleeding.
Sometimes, even after taking all the necessary measures, if nosebleed becomes frequent, severe and
prolonged it is better to go for medical consultation. Homoeopathy provides excellent help in cases like
these. Medicines not only help in stopping the haemorrhage but also cures the underlying cause.
Homeopathy has even proved helpful in permanently getting rid of this problem.
Medicines like Arnica, Ammonium carb, Phosphorus, Arum triphyllum, Ipecac, Hamamelis, Crocus
sativa, etc have proved very effective in such cases.
Not only for nose bleed homeopathy has proved par excellence in treating other summer diseases also,
like food poisoning, diarrhoea, measles, summer headaches, heat strokes, etc. Homoeopathy can also
prevent any disease from progressing into more severe forms like in food poisoning, diarrhoea, cholera,
which have sometimes been reported to be fatal in due course of time.
Some of the summer diseases can be easily prevented by taking precautions and following healthy
habits, still some diseases are inevitable and need medication. Whatsoever, homoeopathy has proved
its effectiveness and worth no matter how acute the case is, with whatever underlying cause.
