A young couple visited my clinic in India, having a complaint of no issue after a married life of six years. They had tried many treatment options to start a family, seeking help in the UK and elsewhere.
Mr. K P.
He was a well built, handsome, enthusiastic young man with a very apprehensive mood who did everything in haste – a “hurried and worried” nature and character. He narrated to me that his wife had a PCOD (Poly cystic ovarian disease) and for that she is taking Allopathic treatment; (Clomiphene Citrate, 50 mg) for a pretty long time. As a result of PCOD, her periods were irregular. She developed severe abdominal cramps with a bloated feeling and was progressively gaining weight. Also, she had developed unwanted facial hair.
He was much worried about all these complaints of his wife and as a result he also developed erectile dysfunction, which gradually resulted in severe oligo–spermia. He had a strong liking towards jewellery, diamonds, gold, white gold. He was fond of eating sweets and craves them more during times of tension.

Mrs. M. P.
A young obese lady with puffiness of face and feet having complaints of –
Irregular menses – no certainty when it will come
Dysmenorrhoea – abdominal cramps
Nausea like sensation prior to periods
Missed periods of 4 to 6 months
Heaviness in the head
Breasts : very much painful

Sluggishness in all her activities

Very calm, quiet, answering in monosyllables

Strongly ‘longing for an heir’ – jealous of a lady having a baby
After a quick evaluation, I suggested she get an ultrasound, i.e. sonography. As she didn’t remember her LMP, we went to a radiologist – Dr. Jayesh Bhatt. After doing a pelvic sonography=USG, it was found that –
There were small multiple follicles in both the ovaries
Endometrium was very thin – 4.0 mm
Uterus was in normal shape, size and position
Blood tests were carried out to rule out hypothyroidism.
I had also advised ‘TORCH’ and ‘Female fertility Profile’.
While waiting for the Blood test reports to come,
I administered ‘Nux-Vomica – 200’ – two doses for five days to both the partners.
Uterus: Anteverted, size, 6.8 x 5.1 x 3.85 cm
Normal echo texture of endometrium,

After 5 days, I called the couple again for a detailed history taking to find a suitable remedy after evaluating the totality for their problems.

After 6 weeks, the couple updated me about the drastic improvement in their conditions.
Mrs. P. had regular periods, no dyspareunia and a remarkable reduction in the swelling.
Mr. K. P. had an improvement in his sexual performance. Now he was hopeful that he would definitely get positive results. After 6 months, I was informed about Mrs. M.P’s pregnancy. I was overwhelmed! One more success story! The patients are in the UK and now their baby was my patient for Asthma. She is totally symptom free for the last year.
From its use historically and currently, it is seen that silver has anti-Inflammatory properties and well as antiseptic, anti-bacterial, preservative, restorative, anti-fungal and healing properties.
Argentum Nitricum removed the inflammatory reaction of the testes and restored the disrupted vital force, which repaired the deranged pathology, thus restoring normal spermatogenesis. The problem of Oligo-spermia was corrected and normal sperm count restored.
HOW APIS WORKS
The sting of bees, wasps ,fire ants and some other insects contain:
PATHO-PHYSIOLOGY OF BEE STING.
After bee sting….
Body quickly over reacts with Histamine secretion
Bee sting triggers the release of Histamine from mast cells.
Histamine is usually found in higher concentration in skin, lungs and gastric Mucosa.
Histamine is a potent arterial dilator leading to hypotension.
In the lungs, it causes bronchial constriction leading to spasm, dyspnoea, wheezing and respiratory collapse.
It’s a membrane protein, which hydrolyzes
Fatty Acids and lysophospholipid products.
Phospholipase A2 proteins are responsible for the release of…
ARCHIDONIC Acid from cell membrane.
Subsequent conversion of this Fatty Acid to….
Leukotrienes and Prostaglandin is a part of the inflammatory response.
Leading to inflammatory cyst formation.
On the basis of the Law of Similars—Similia Similibus Curentur
APIS MELLIFICA works to remove the cysts from the ovaries.
