Control of Respiration by the Nervous System

Control of Respiration by the Nervous System

By Dr Anmol Arora ( Sr Homoeopathic physician )

Breathing is controlled by the medulla of the brainstem. It repeatedly triggers contraction of the diaphragm initiating inspiration. The rate of breathing changes with activity level in response to carbon dioxide levels, and to a lesser extent, oxygen levels, in the blood. Carbon dioxide lowers the pH of the blood.

There are control centers for respiration in both the medulla and the pons of the hindbrain.

The Gall bladder:

It is a pear shaped organ measuring about 7.5 to 12.5 cm long. It is capable of considerable distention in certain pathological conditions.

The Anatomical subdivisions are

a) fundus

b) body

c) neck; which terminate in the narrow infundibulum.

The mucus membrane contains indentations of the mucosa that sink into the muscle coat. These are crypts of Luschka

Sensational study of University of Leipzig Compiled By Dr Anmol Arora

Karen Nieber, a professor of pharmacology, merely wanted to prove that homeopathy doesn’t work. She argued that with potencies higher than X 23 not a single molecule of the original tincture could possibly be present, mathematically speaking, and that no pharmacological effect would be possible.


Dandruff By Dr Anmol Arora ( Sr Homoeopathic Physician )



If dandruff is the only thing standing between you and a closet full of basic black, you’re not alone. Many people have this chronic scalp disorder, which is marked by itching and excessive flaking of the scalp.Although dandruff isn’t contagious and is rarely serious, it can be embarrassing and surprisingly persistent.

The good news is that dandruff can usually be controlled. Mild cases of dandruff may need nothing more than daily shampooing with a gentle cleanser. And stubborn flakes often respond to medicated shampoos.
At one time or another you may had suffered from dandruff , dandruff causes have been attributed to dry skin, oily skin, shampooing too often or not often enough, a poor diet, stress, and the use of too many fancy styling products. Although some of these factors may exacerbate or contribute to scalp flaking, the real culprit may be a fat-eating, yeast-like fungus called malassezia, formerly known as pityrosporum.


Haemorrhoids ( Piles ) By Dr Anmol Arora ( Sr Homoeopathic Physician )

Haemorrhoids ( Piles ) By Dr Anmol Arora ( Sr Homoeopathic Physician )



Haemorrhoids are the swellings that can occur in the anus and lower rectum (back passage).

There is a network of small veins (blood vessels) within the inside lining of the anus and lower rectum. These veins sometimes become wider and engorged with more blood than usual. These engorged veins and the overlying tissue may then form into one or more small swellings called haemorrhoids.

The exact reason why these changes occur and lead to haemorrhoids forming is not clear. Some haemorrhoids seem to develop for no apparent reason. However, it is thought that the pressure in and around the anus can be a major factor in many cases. If the pressure in and around the anus is increased, then it is thought that this can lead to haemorrhoids developing. (more…)
