Infertility and Evidence Based Homeopathy

trivedi oct image

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.

MALE-PART:

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.

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.

Discussion:

MALE PART:

ARGENTUM NITRICUM=SILVER

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.

FEMALE PART

HOW APIS WORKS

The sting of bees, wasps ,fire ants and some other insects contain:

1.Phospholipase A2

2.Hyaluronidase

3.Apamin

4.Melitin

5.Kinins

PATHO-PHYSIOLOGY OF BEE STING.

Phospholipase A2……

It’s a membrane protein, which hydrolyzes

                              ↓

Phospholipids…to form….

                             

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.
