What is Down Syndrome?

Down's syndrome is a genetic disorder with mental sub normality in which the extra chromosome of Down syndrome occurs when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21.

Down syndrome is not usually inherited from parents. The most cases of Down syndrome (95%) are usually caused by some changes during the development of the ovum, sperm cell, or embryo. .

More than 75% of Down syndrome defects occur due to an extra chromosome 21 within the ovum. Less than 25% of cases occur due to an extra chromosome in the sperm cell. Some rare cases the ovum and sperm cells are normal.

It also calls trisomy 21 (> 90%). It is also known as 'Up syndrome' because of the cheerful personality. .

Gender, race, and ethnicity do not appear to play a role in the development of the disorder. It affects an equal number of boys and girls.

  • HomoeoCARE's Approach

    Homoeopathy believes in individualization and treating man in disease and not disease in man.Homeopathic medicines can affect gene expression and have the capacity to promote changes in gene activity and thus helping in symptomatic improvement so that a patient of down syndrome can also lead life almost same as a normal human,can read and and can understand the things with much more efficiency.

    HomoeoCARE's Success

    No words can describe the feeling you have when you hear your child read his first letter, his first word, his first sentence and his first book. Thanks to HomoeoCARE for providing me this happiness, said by parent of 6 year old down syndrome child. He was not able to recognize a single letter earlier and now after homoepathic treatment he is able to read letters, words, sentences . Additionally his speech has significantly developed and refined. His understanding improved to a level where we are able to communicate with him competently.

    Jyotsana pehle kaafi jyada bimar rehti thi jaise fever, cold, cough, vomiting, skin problem, eyes problem takreeban saari hi bimariyaan thi . Kariban 1 month se ye sab kuch nahi hai, Jab se homoeocare me aaye hai. pehle khane pine me bhi muskil thi lekin ab thoda theek hai. Umer ke sath bimariyaan kam hone ki bjaye increase ho rahi thi . Lekin yahaan aane par kaafi fark padha hai . Pehle inhaler nebulizer 6-7 baar dena pdta tha lekin ab kareeb 1-1.5 mahine se nahi diya hai, pehle balgam bahut banta tha lekin ab aisa nahi hai. sneezing and cough bhi lagbag kam hi hai.
