Diseases Anosmia


Anosmia mainly occurs due to the malfunction of olfactory system in the human body. In this condition, the individual fails to distinguish a specific smell and the condition might be temporary or permanent. It can also vary in a way that an individual is not able to distinguish some particular smell. The most likely causes for loss of smell are nasal blockages and destruction of the inner mucus lining of nose.

Causes of Anosmia
Nasal congestion from a chilly, allergic or poor air quality and sinus infection are the most common reasons behind anosmia. Different causes include:

• Nasal polyps: Tiny noncancerous growths within the nose and sinuses that bloc the nasal passage
• Injury to the nose and smell nerves from surgery or head trauma
• Exposure to harmful chemicals such as solvents or pesticides
• Certain medications, as well as antibiotics, antidepressants, medicinal drug, medication, heart medications and others
• Loss of smell caused by colds, allergies or sinus infection. This will typically be treated looking on the cause. Your doctor will offer you associate in nursing antibiotic to treat microorganism infection or take away obstructions that block your nasal passage.
• Radiation treatment of head and neck cancers

Always be in touch with your doctor if you experience a loss of smell that you can't attribute to a cold or allergy or which doesn't get better after a week or two. Your doctor will then examine the inside of the nose with a special instrument to see if a polyp or growth is impairing your capability to smell or if an infection is present. Further, testing by a doctor who specializes in noise and sinus problems, an ear, nose and throat doctor might be needed to determine the cause of anosmia. A CT scan might be necessary so that the doctor can get a better look of the area.

Homeopathy for Anosmia
Homeopathy can be used for treating anosmia. It's a vitalist philosophy that interprets diseases and sickness as caused by disturbances in a hypothetical vital force or life force. It sees these disturbances as manifesting themselves as unique symptoms. Homeopathy maintains that the vital force has the ability to react and adapt to internal as well as external causes, which several homeopaths refer to as law of susceptibility. The law of susceptibility implies that a negative state of mind can attract hypothetical disease known as 'miasms' to invade the body and produce symptoms of diseases.
