A Cure for Sterile Men

Sterile men can be treated effectively with homeopathic medication

In a growing and alarming trend, male problems are believed to be either solely or partly responsible in about 40% of all infertility cases. Over the past few years, there is a sharp rise in male infertility cases, which creates much stress and emotional trauma in many relationships. For a healthy and successful conception, it is important for both men and women to have optimum health.

Reproductive problems in men such as poor quality or quantity of sperm being produced, hormone disorders, obstruction, sexual dysfunction, etc can all prevent conception from taking place. The most common problems men face are low sperm count which maybe caused genetically, morphology abnormalities and the motility of the sperm.

Men with sperm defects are often treated successfully with homeopathy

Lifestyle changes, stress, obesity, pollution’s, lack of physical exercise and change in eating habits, smoking, alcohol consumption and accompanying ailments like diabetes and hypertension are found to be among the major contributory factors.

Homeopathy has a high successful rate in treating male infertility by improving sperm count, motility, quality and quantity of the semen. Homeopathy works especially well in those cases of erectile dysfunction (impotence) or ejaculation problems, where the case of sexual dysfunction is psychological such as depression, stress or anxiety of the performance. Homeopathy is ideally equipped to treat safely and gently without any side effects.

You, or someone whom you care about, may have already tried fertility treatment without success. If so consider Homeopathy and lifestyle changes and you could be very pleasantly surprised.

The Panchaboodha Treatment –A treatment Without Medicine

The Panchaboodhaa treatment can diagnose all sorts of diseases/ disorders which have affected the life force, energy, mind and body of any Human being. The Panchaboodhaa Pulse Diagnosis method can find out the acute and chronic condition of the disease and the same is cured without any medicine/Surgery.

What is the Panchaboodha treatment:
It is a newly invented, universal cosmic life force pulse diagnosis treatment method which is based on the physiology of the five elements’ ( six )energies in the human body.
This is done by sensing the five elements’ (six) pulse on the fore arm or on the wrist and diagnosing the root cause of the ailment. The patient is given a very small pressure on the relevant Panchaboodha  points based on the root cause of the disease. This Immediately relieves the Symptoms and cures the root cause in due course.

High Lights
1. Apart from the five elements the sixth element as mentioned in acupuncture is invented and the pulse along with the points of the sixth element are used in the treatment.
2. Apart from the stated six elements 4 more elements representing the internal life force of the human body and the cosmic energy in the human body.  Thus this treatment involves 10 elements’ energies. This is not organ pulse diagnosis method.

Beneficiary Curing
can diagnose the state

a) Acute
b) Chronic
c) The patients’ level of improvement immediately after treatment.
d) The rate at which the body is improving
e) What is the cause blocking the improvement
f) What is the required treatment?

All the above are diagnosed through the pulse of the patient

Aplastic Anemia – Causes & Treatment

What is aplastic anemia?
Before knowing about aplastic anemia, we should know the normal function of blood cells and bone marrow. Bone marrow is the factory producing all the blood cells continuously. Our body needs continuous production of red cells, white cells and platelets which are constantly released into the blood stream from the bone marrow. In the blood, these cells live for few days and lose their function and so they have to be constantly replenished. Red cells carry oxygen throughout the body. White cells fight against infection. Platelets prevent against minor bleeding from the blood vessels.
When the bone marrow stops working for some reasons, it is called aplastic anemia.

What are the causes of aplastic anemia?
This can be due to varied causes such as viral infections, chemicals, drugs, toxin exposure or inherited genetic damage etc. In a particular individual, it may be difficult to find out the cause.

Can the bone marrow function be replaced by transfusing blood?
No, not completely.Red cells can be transfused as blood. But even the blood if it is transfused repeatedly, it can cause lot of problems such as iron overload.White cells cannot be transfused unless in exceptional circumstances.Platelets can be transfused but can be present in the blood for few days only. In some individuals, due to antibody formation, platelets are destroyed rapidly within few hours in the body.

What are the complications in these patients?
Normally white cells are the policemen of our body, providing protection from various infections entering our blood from within our body (such as intestine, lungs etc) or outside our body through contamination of water, hand shaking or airborne infections. Without white cells, the bacteria or viruses are not easily killed in the blood and they proliferate rapidly and hence these patients have high risk of succumbing to infections. Also, they can get unusual infections like fungus and other rare bacteria which sometimes may need expensive antibiotics and antifungal treatments.
The platelets seal the holes formed in our blood vessels. Normally since the blood flows rapidly, numerous holes can be formed in the blood vessels on a continuing basis. They have to be sealed constantly to prevent minor or major bleeding from the blood vessels. Even though platelets can be transfused separately, on the long run, many patients develop antibodies to the transfused platelets. This is a big problem in aplastic anemia patients, as after repeated platelet transfusions, they become refractory to therapy due to antibody formation. Even though the normal platelet count is around 150-400, any platelet count of more than 20-30 is quite safe in the sense, spontaneous bleeding is uncommon with that level.
Due to the absence of production of red cells, these patients develop anemia. Even though this can be easily corrected by packed cell transfusions, too many transfusions can cause lot of problems, in the sense it will lead to iron overload. Iron overload can affect heart and other organs in the body.

Then how is aplastic anemia treated?
Aplastic anemia has to be treated according to the cause and severity. Genetic causes of aplastic anemia can be treated differently from acquired aplastic anemias.
In young individuals with severe aplasia, allogenic stem cell transplantation has to be carried out as soon as possible.
In patients who do not have a HLA match, or in older patients, intense immunosuppressive therapy is another option. Immunosuppressive therapy can be with Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine or using cyclosporine alone.

How will I know whether I am progressing well or benefitted from treatment?
It will take usually 3-4 months for a response to occur. Till then you will need blood products and contact the doctor whenever you have fever or infections.

Can the disease come back even after treatment?
Unfortunately it can, in people who have immunosuppressive therapy. In those patients immunosuppressive therapy can be repeated again.
However there are certain indicators which will tell us the chances that you will benefit from immunosuppressive treatment. Your doctor will let it know.

Leukemia – Its Diagnosis and Cure

Is leukemia curable?
Certainly. Most leukemia are curable completely. Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and some types of adult acute myeloid leukemia are curable to the extent of 75-80%.They are treated by a therapy called chemotherapy, which help in eradicating the bad cells from the bone marrow.

How is leukemia diagnosed?
The bad white cells are sometimes seen in the blood but at other times may be seen only in the bone marrow. Just like taking blood sample, bone marrow sample is taken by piercing a needle into the bones, usually in the pelvic bone.  Since the bone marrow is the birth place of all the blood cells, we can easily find out whether the blood cells are produced and maturing normally or not. If bad cells are seen, they can be stained to know the type of leukemia and processed further to see the chromosomal changes in them.

How is leukemia treated?
The initial therapy given as soon as the leukemia is diagnosed is called induction chemotherapy which is usually a combination of 2-5 drugs. They are either given continuously for 7-10 days or in a weekly basis, depending on the type of leukemia.

After the induction chemotherapy, the bad cells are killed and it takes around 3-5 weeks for the good cells to appear in the bone marrow. A bone marrow is repeated at this stage to see whether the bad cells are gone. If there are no bad cells, it is called remission. Remember ‘remission’ is not equivalent to cure. Even though the bone marrow shows no bad cells, there are still innumerable bad cells, present in the marrow but not visible to our eyes or even through the microscope. That is why treatment has to be continued for many more months.

The exact duration, number of cycles of chemotherapy has to be given etc. will depend on the type of leukemia and will be explained to you by your doctor. In general in acute myeloid leukemia, the chemotherapy cycles have to be given for 3-5 months. In acute lymphoblastic leukemia, repeated cycles are given for 4-6 months, after which the patient has to take tablets for 2 years.

What happens during chemotherapy?
The initial chemotherapy is called induction.Since the chemotherapy wipes off not only the bad cells but also the good ones, the patient will not have any good cells at all. This will be very severe during induction chemotherapy as even before starting therapy, the good cells are present only in a very small numbers. So till such time the good cells recover, the patient has high risk of infection (as there are no white cells) and also has high risk of bleeding (as there are very much reduced platelets).The red cells can be supplemented by transfusing blood.Platelets also can be transfused although they last in the body for few hours to few days only.White cells are difficult to transfuse routinely, but infections are treated with various antibiotics.

How do I know whether my leukemia has a high chance of cure or not?
This depends on various factors.As said earlier, the chromosomal damages in the white cells produce leukemia. Depending on the type of chromosomal damages, the leukemia are classified as good or bad types. Other leukemia is good or bad.In general good types have a high cure rate compared to the bad ones.

How do I know the progress of my disease?
The first stage is to find out the response to treatment. This can be done by assessing whether the “BAD LEUKEMIC CELLS” are cleared rapidly or not. This can be done by flow cytometric, cytogenetic or molecular assessment. Your doctor will explain in detail how it is being done.

What should the patient and the relatives have to do during treatment?

  • Follow all measures to prevent infections (as deliberated by your doctor)
  • Follow diet as advised
  • Remember “FEVER” occurring anytime during treatment is an emergency. Even if you are discharged, get advice from doctor regarding whom to contact and what to do if you get fever.
  • We advise most of the leukemic patients to resume normal work or studies after 5-6 months. If you have any MENTAL strains due to social stigmas or FINANCIAL strains, NEVER hesitate to discuss with your doctor as we have many “HELP” groups to tackle all your problems.

What will happen if I have a bad type?
It is important that your leukemia is recognized as good or bad within few weeks of diagnosis. Because, the bad types can still be cured, if very intensive chemotherapy is given. In some cases, bone marrow transplantation may be needed after the chemotherapy. Your doctor will tell you if you need one.

Acute Leukemia – What Is It?

What is Acute Leukemia?
Before getting to know about acute leukemia, one should know about the basics of blood cells in our body.
Our blood has three types of cells in it.

• The red cells are predominant and they help in carrying oxygen from the lungs to all the tissues of the body.
• The white cells fight against various bacteria and viruses entering our body and help to protect against infections.
• The platelets are the cells which constantly help in repairing any tears occurring in our blood vessels and so help to prevent any bleeding

The blood cells after circulating in the body are destroyed in our blood after some days. So they have to be replaced continuously. All these cells are constantly produced in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is a tiny space present inside most of our bones.

The blood cells have to be constantly produced in the marrow to keep the blood, function properly. If for some reasons, the bone marrow does not produce enough cells or produce bad quality cells, then various problems arise.

Leukemia is one condition in which the white blood cells in the bone marrow are produced in excess of what is needed. Not only they are produced in excess, but they cannot mature properly. These immature cells accumulate in the bone marrow and affect the production of other cells such as red cells and platelets.
This accumulation of immature or bad white cells in the bone marrow is called acute leukemia.

Why does leukemia occur?
Leukemia are produced due to abnormal production of white cells. Like a computer chip, each cell has a programme stored in the chromosome. This programme decides, how often a cell has to divide and how to mature and function. If this programme is damaged to due to some damage in the chromosome, leukemia occurs. Even though there are various causes, by which the chromosome can be damaged, in a particular individual it may be hard to say.

What are the symptoms of leukemia?
Since bad white cells are produced, they cannot function properly. Also they affect the production of other blood cells.
Defect in white cells make us prone for infections. So prolonged fevers can occur.
Reduced production of red cells cause anemia.
Reduced production of platelets cause spontaneous bleeding either from the gums or from other sites.
Since the bone marrow is rapidly expanded with these bad white cells, it can cause bone pains over the chest or in the back.

Does these symptoms always mean leukemia?
No, since various other causes can produce defect in blood cells, these symptoms never always indicate leukemia. That is why if these symptoms are there, a blood smear is examined and if necessary a bone marrow examination is done to diagnose leukemia.

How does infection occur?
Since the white cells are the policemen of our body, they fight against all the infectious organisms entering our body. Our body itself have lot of bacteria in the intestine and our nose may contain fungus. These normally do not cause infections, as even if these bacteria or fungus enter our blood, they are rapidly destroyed by the white cells. But when the white cells are very few or absent, these bacteria or fungus entering our blood can grow well, and can cause infections.

In addition bacteria can also enter from outside the body. So, patient has to follow the safety precautions, as supplied by the hospital, during the chemotherapy.

On our next article will give in depth detailing on the treatments and care. Stay tuned.

Weighty Matters

Hey you! Yeah you. Stop hogging on those packaged foods, being all depressed because the whole world stares you left, right and centre. Well it does nothing but make you put on more weight, become lazy, unhealthy and disease prone.


Obesity is not about body shaming, it is so much more than that. Obesity slows down a body’s physical and mental capabilities. It is like this grave virus that if attacked once, is hard to get rid of, but NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

Excessive intake of food, lack of physical activity and sometimes involvement of genetics and medical reasons leads to obesity. Hogging on those calories will do more harm than good. Hence, here are some tips to loose that mass of flab and go the healthy way:

1. Eat Right: Sorry, but those packaged foods, chips packets and chocolate bars go to the dustbin. Eating right does not mean only boiled food and salads. It means having a wholesome meal with a heavy protein filled breakfast, a medium lunch and light dinner. If need be, you can visit a dietician for a regularised chart.

2. Exercise Daily: Half hour to an hour full of daily physical activity is important. Be it jogging, sports or hitting the gym. What works better is being consistent with your exercises. Keep changing the type of activity you do so that it does not get boring and keep those excuses at bay and work out! There are no other alternatives to it. Make exercise a daily ritual, just like brushing your teeth or sleeping. Something, you cannot do without.

3. Regular Check-up: Medical check – ups are a must. Visit the Doctor for a monthly examination to keep all the diseases under observation.This will help you know what you are doing right and what needs to be worked on.

4. A Good night’s Sleep: A good 7-8 hrs sleep is a must. Many people sleep light from the stress of everyday lives. Beat the stress levels by listening to calm music or meditating or whatever helps and get some sound sleep.


These are 4 major mantras to becoming happy, healthy and staying fit. The key is to be persistent towards your goal. Stay motivated and see your lifestyle change right in front of your eyes.

Danvanthiri joins hands to promote a Healthy Heart

Physical Fitness is an important factor to keep your heart healthy and functioning smoothly. Knowing the value of it, Danvanthiri celebrated the “Healthy Heart” campaign in the noblest fashion. Danvanthiri participated and sponsored the HEARTWALK and RUN organized by Oracle India. The funds collected through this event went to the Needy Heart Foundation, an NGO that funds surgeries for the poor.

The event was organized on the 27th November 2016, at Prestige Tech Park II, Marathahalli, Bangalore. The event that kick started as early as 6 am saw an astounding number of participants for the 5K walk/5K Run/10K Run. The program started with Zumba dance to warm up the audience. Seeing the energy of the participants tapping their feet to some peppy songs, prepping up for the walk, supporting such a wonderful cause and the thrill to stay healthy and active was mind-blowing. The whole of the team participated in the marathon, which turned out to be a superb team-building activity.

Being a life-saving app, and having an important feature of – Organ Donation in it, we aided the cause by promoting our motto “Have a heart, become a Donor” carved on bright red balloons. The balloons were a big hit among children, who loved playing with them and elders sensing the importance of the cause. Our customized booklets with a message “Sometimes an apple a day is not enough to keep the doctor away” were distributed to every participant.

The ceremony ended with handing over goodies and special gifts to winners. Danvanthiri got an opportunity to spread awareness on the healthy heart campaign and how the app helps in dealing with any heart attack or emergency situations by just the click of a button.

A healthy lifestyle, eating right, being physically fit makes the heart healthier and through this event the awareness was raised that “Exercise should be regarded as a tribute to a healthy heart.”
