Homoeopathy cure for soldiers affected with frostbite.
Chennai.Scientists have reported homoeopathic remedy to treat frost bite that affectssoldiers stationed in high altitude areas such as Siachen.Studies undertaken at the Command hospital in Chandigarh six months agoon 80 soldiers with frost bite showed that homoeopathic treatment based onan extract of an herb Aloe vera was effective, Dr William Selvamurthy,Director of New Delhi based Defense Institute of Physiology and AlliedSciences (DIPAS), told the 86
th
Indian Science Congress here. The alcoholic extract of aloe vera, given orally along with twocomplementary sulphur and phosphorus based compounds, improved thecondition of all soldiers affected by frost bite, Selvamurthy told delegates atthe environmental physiology section at the congress this morning. The studies were prompted by encouraging findings in rats in which frost bitesymptoms were experimentally induced and which benefitted from thehomoeopathic remedy. The animal studies have shown that the aloe vera extract, when givenimmediately after exposure to extreme cold, penetrates the cold injuredtissues and makes them warm. There are no signs of cold shock, the bloodvessels dilated and circulated was re-established.Even when given six days after an attack of frost bite, there was completerestoration of health.Victims of frost bite develop irregular circulation of blood, blueness intissues, numbness and swollen veins.Other symptoms include lowered vitality, stinging and burning pain and icycoldness of limbs.Another major finding by DIPAS is that inhalation of nitric oxide gas can treatserious breathing disorders that develop in soldiers and mountaineers in highaltitudes. The condition is known as High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), ischaracterized by high blood pressure and decreased oxygen supply.
