Astigmatism
View

Astigmatism is a very common condition of poor eyesight that is characterized by the cornea of the eye becoming oval or football-shaped, rather than round, which is normal and required for good eyesight.

In cases of astigmatism, light rays do not form a single point of focus as they enter the eye, causing the eye to focus on two points instead of one.

Asthma
View

Asthma is a respiratory condition characterized by spasms in the smooth muscles surrounding the airways of the lungs, known as bronchi and bronchioles. As the spasms occur, they cause the airways to narrow, creating difficulty breathing and, in most cases, a sensation of being unable to breathe altogether. Typically, asthma is also accompanied by excessive secretion of mucus in the lungs’ mucous membranes.

Allergies
View

Allergies are adverse immune system reactions to a substance that would normally be considered harmless. Allergic reactions are caused by exposure to allergens. An allergen is a protein that the body judges to be foreign and dangerous. Possible allergens include specific foods, environmental toxins, pollens, moulds, mites, animal dander and a host of other irritants. Once exposed to an allergen, the immune system releases specific antibodies to destroy the enemy allergen, setting in motion a complex series of events involving many bio-chemicals. These chemicals then produce inflammation or other symptoms of an allergy response.

Addictions
View

Addictions are physical or psychological dependencies that negatively affect a person’s life. All forms of addictions are biochemical. The addictive substances become a necessary ingredient of the body’s chemistry. Withdrawal occurs when the substance is withheld. When someone with addictive behaviour is deprived of the addictive substance, the ensuing withdrawal symptoms often require outside intervention. Withdrawal symptoms are often painful and sometimes unbearable. This pain frequently lures the addict back to the addictive substance or behaviour, beginning the destructive cycle anew.

As
Achalasia
View

In short, achalasia means that your gullet has lost its ability to move food along and the valve at the end of your gullet fails to open to allow food to pass into your stomach. As a result, food gets stuck in your gullet and is often brought back up. Primarily a disorder of motility of the lower oesophageal or cardiac sphincter, achalasia can be secondary to other conditions, such as oesophageal cancer. In achalasia, the smooth muscle layer of the oesophagus has impaired peristalsis and failure of the sphincter to relax causes a functional stenosis or functional oesophageal stricture. Achalasia tends to present itself in adult life between the ages of about 25 and 40 years with less than 5% occurring in children.
