Aug. 21, 2009 - PRLog -- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot in one of the deeply situated veins of the body. The condition commonly affects the veins of the leg (such as the femoral vein or the popliteal vein) or the deep veins of the pelvis. Usually, small blood clots do not produce any symptoms as the body is able to gradually break them down, without any immediate or long-term effects. Larger clots can partly or completely block the blood flow in the vein and cause symptoms such as swelling of the affected leg, pain and tenderness, and redness of the overlying skin. If the DVT persists in the vein, it can lead to a number of complications, including inflammation of the vein (phlebitis) and leg ulcers. DVT in the thigh carries a risk of pulmonary embolism. This occurs when the clot, detaches itself from the inside of the vein, leaves the leg, and lodges in the pulmonary artery, the main blood vessel to the lungs. If the clot is large enough, it can completely block that artery and cause death. Mr. V. Girish K. (name changed to protect identity) had severe pain in his calf muscles, along with swelling of his right lower leg and purpuric patches on both legs. He had been on allopathic medications for more than a year but hadn’t improved much. On his wife’s recommendation; he visited Dr. Batra’s® where the doctor studied and analysed his case in great detail. Mr. Girish was diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis. The doctor suggested a Doppler Study of both the lower limbs, which confirmed the diagnosis revealing DVT in the right anterior vein with soft tissue oedema below the calf.
The doctor at Dr. Batra’s® prescribed a few doses of the homeopathic remedy Arnica and gradually tapered the dose and dosage of the allopathic medicines. Within four months of treatment, the red patches on his legs disappeared and there was also a reduction in the pain and swelling of his legs. As his homeopathic treatment progressed, the pain in his calf muscles and the swelling reduced significantly and the red patches never reappeared. A repeat Doppler study after nine months of treatment showed no evidence of DVT.
Homeopathy is an excellent treatment option for this condition at all stages. Homeopathic remedies not only offer symptomatic relief without any side-effects but also treat the root cause of the problem, thereby reducing the possibility of a recurrence.
