Chalazion

Homeopathic Treatment of Chalazion or Meibomian Gland Lipogranuloma

Allopathic mode of treatment

Topical antibiotic eye drops or ointment (for example, chloramphenicol or fusidic acid) are prescribed for the initial acute infection, but are otherwise of little value in treating a chalazion. If a chalazion continues to enlarge or fails to settle within a few months, then smaller lesions may be injected with a corticosteroid to help decrease the inflammation or larger ones may be surgically removed using local anaesthesia.

The surgical treatment will only chop that tumor out of the eyelid with few possible complications but does not guarantee a complete cure. Chalazion may come again, may be the next time on the other eyelid. Surgical intervention and conventional approach of antibiotics are just temporary solutions but would not help you to get rid of these chalazions permanently.

Homeopathic mode of treatment

So for this grain sized tumor on the eyelid (chalazion) interestingly, there is an alternative medical treatment known as homeopathy, which can successfully help one get rid of chalazion.

Homeopathy is based on the nature's law of cure, namely 'like cures like'. The truth of this law was discovered by a German allopathic doctor Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and has been verified experimentally and clinically since then. Homeopathy is a revolutionary, natural medical science. It has a unique approach of preparation of drugs in which the end result will contain only the 'dynamic curative power' of the drug substance, devoid of any original crude substance. By a special mode of preparation called 'potentisation', over 3000 homeopathic medicines are prepared from sources such as vegetables, animals, minerals and so on. Hence, homeopathic remedies with their ultra minute doses are non-toxic, absolutely harmless and bring about a SAFE & SURE CURE.

After starting with homeopathic treatment, within 5 to 7 weeks the size of the chalazion will be greatly reduced with disappearance of eyelid tenderness, sensitivity and tears. Unlike antibiotics and other such medicines, homeopathic pills do not hamper digestion, nor lower the body's resistance. They don't even cause any allergies nor cause any damage even if taken over a long period. Homeopathic pills being sweet in taste, are willingly ingested by children.

So, even without a surgeon's knife, this tumor can be cured easily. Homeopathy should be the first choice of therapy as it is highly scientific, logical, safe, quick and an extremely effective method of healing. It offers a long lasting to a permanent cure, treating the root cause of the disease and is useful for most ailments.

In this scientific era of health consciousness, the time has come that for the treatment of any disease, one must take a homeopathic opinion immediately. Often, patients lose their costly time going from one specialist to another helplessly, without permanent relief and approach a homeopathic doctor only when other medicines fail.

There are 42 homoeopathic medicines which give great relief in chalazion. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the homeopathic doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus, homeopathic remedies of chalazion are designer made, unlike allopathy, in which all patients receive the same drugs, although trade names may be different or in the end where they are forced to go for surgery, if the medicines fail.

What is a Chalazion or Meibomian Gland Lipogranuloma ?

Chalazion, also known as meibomian gland lipogranuloma, is a cyst in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a blocked meibomian gland, on the upper or lower eyelid. Chalazions differ from styes (hordeolums) in that they are usually painless (apart from the tenderness caused when they swell up) and in size (chalazion tend to be larger than styes).

What are these eyelid glands ?

Eyelid glands are called the meibomian glands. The meibonian glands are named after a 17th century German anatomist, Heinrich Meibom (who must have had good eyes to see these minute structures). They are also known as the palpebral glands, tarsal glands, or tarsoconjunctival glands. There are 30 to 40 of these glands in each of the upper and lower lids. The tiny openings of each of these oil or sebaceous glands are just behind the lid lashes at the lid margins. These glands produce a thick liquid secretion that is discharged into the tear film of the eye. This liquid is a mixture of oil and mucus and is called sebum. This liquid acts to lubricate the surface of the eye.

What causes a Chalazion or Meibomian Gland Lipogranuloma ?

The narrow opening through which a meibomian gland secretes its material can become clogged from narrowing of the opening or hardening of the sebaceous liquid near the opening. If this occurs, the gland will have a backup of the material it secretes and it will swell. This leads to thickening of the walls of the gland and leakage of oil into the lid itself, causing inflammation both within the gland and the eyelid. This inflamed enlargement is a chalazion.
