Colibacillinum: Best Homeopathic Medicine For UTI Caused By E.Coli Infection

Homeopathic medicine Colibacillinum is the top remedy for UTI from E.Coli infection. This natural medicine is helpful for both acute UTI from E.Coli infection as well chronic tendency of a recurrent UTI from E.Coli infection. The main symptoms indicating Colibacillinum are pain and burning during urination, the frequent urge to urinate, and unsatisfactory urination with the need to urinate again and again even after urination.

From Julian’s Nosodes

Lessons learned:

In certain cases where infection is the main cause of the trouble and after the indicated remedy fails to act or acts partially, then the nosode made from the causative organism can be prescribed effectively after seeing symptom similarity.

  • Usually the potency choosen is higher, like 1M.
  • In a chronic pathological case when an acute condition arises,consider the present predominant symptom picture,take the acute totality and prescribe the medicine covering the acute totality after considering the symptom similarity.
  • The concomitant symptoms help in the choice of remedy.In physical complaints the mental state of the patient at that moment becomes the important concomitant and vice-versa.
