We present the case of 33-year-old woman diagnosed with low to high grade squamous intraepithelial neoplasia that benefited with individualized classical homeopathy. The outcomes were resolution of the pre-malignant condition and the HPV infection, preventing the use of invasive procedures that were otherwise deemed necessary.
We present three cases of impetigo and one case of bullous pemphigoid neonatorum that benefited from the homeopathic remedy Antimonium crudum, which has a wide spectrum of dermatological applications when prescribed according to symptom similarity. Further larger clinical studies are necessary to establish its role in pediatric dermatology.
Introduction: Continuum theory states that suppression of efficient acute inflammation is one of the mechanisms responsible for the onset of chronic low-grade inflammation, and in the presence of chronic inflammation, an organism is not capable of an efficient acute inflammatory response to pathogenic stimuli. Materials and methods: We investigated medical records from a large clinical database to assess whether chronic and acute inflammation were mutually exclusive. To evaluate this question, we gathered data on age, current diagnosis, comorbidities and last high fever. Results: A total of 927 cases of chronic inflammatory diseases were investigated. A strong association was found between increasing age and a reduction in concurrent acute and chronic inflammation (chi-squared statistic 51.26; p< .00001). Twenty-one individual cases were examined for the pattern of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. In most cases, there was a clear increase in acute inflammatory conditions as chronic diseases improved. Conclusions: This retrospective study showed a strong association of decreasing concurrent acute and chronic inflammatory states with increasing age, and a possible mutual exclusivity of efficient acute and chronic inflammation was indicated. Since ageing is a low-grade chronic inflammatory process, it is possible that chronic inflammation precludes efficient acute inflammation, which indicates that there is a need to reconsider the manner of handling of acute inflammation in the population.
