Hepatitis–B

Hepatitis B is a highly infectious disease caused Hepatitis B Virus. It damages the liver parenchyma. Complications of this disease are Liver Cirrhosis and Portal Hypertension. It may also lead to Hepatocellular Carcinoma. It is a major health hazard around the globe because of its highly infectious nature. No alarming signs and symptoms in early stage of infection are exhibited but lethal damage to the liver takes place in advanced stage. Over 750,000 people die of Hepatitis B each year.

Transmission of HBV takes place through blood or other body fluids. Possible routes of transmission include sexual contact, transfusions of blood and its components, re-use of contaminated needles, syringes and surgical instruments and from mother to child during childbirth.

Initial results of treatment are encouraging as the patients are not only clinically benefitted but have shown reduction in Viral load. Some have even been rendered seronegative.

Fatty Infiltration of Liver

Fatty infiltration of liver is the excessive accumulation of fat in the liver cells with increased parenchymal echogenicity in ultrasonography. It is caused by consumption of alcohol, prolonged use of toxic medicines and fat-rich diet. It has been categorized into grades I-IV.

It can be cured successfully by proper holistic homoeopathic treatment. Given below are the results of a clinical study on fatty liver conducted at GCCHR.

Gall bladder stones (Cholelithiasis)

Gall stones are common biliary pathology. Its treatment is chiefly surgical removal of gall bladder and is one of the most common operations performed by surgeons. Although lot of cases have been treated by homoeopathy, the outcome is not very encouraging (as is evident from our research data given below).

However, the results of study conducted at GCCHR remove the prevalent myths from the mind of physicians, surgeons and even public that gall stones can’t be treated by medicines. It is also evident that unlike kidney stones, dissolution of gallbladder stones is very rare event, although not impossible. Nevertheless, it gives a ray of hope to pediatric, geriatric and patients suffering from diabetes, hypertension and other systemic diseases in whom surgery is contraindicated.
