Written by G.K.Shangloo

OBJECTIVE: To establish the positive role of Homoeopathy in curing surgical diseases like uterine fibroid and ovarian cyst through homoeopathic medicine at the general practice in Allahabad India.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: The well-proven Homeopathic medicines were selected on the basis of principles of homeopathy to the patients of uterine fibroid and ovarian cyst during the period of 1996 to 2004. The patients were assessed on the basis of changes in the symptoms during the period of 3-4 months and Ultrasound done after that to assess the size of fibroid.

RESULTS: Statistical Data of patients cured by us 1996-2004:

No. Of Patients entered – 123
No. Of patients who followed the protocol – 100
No. Of patients which improved – 85
No. Of patients with complete removal of fibroid – 48
No. Of patients whose size reduced but no complete removal – 20

Success rate Cure-48%
Rate of Response to Homoeopathy- 85%

CONCLUSIONS: Homeopathy is becoming increasingly popular throughout the entire world. Now it is time to prove to the world what homeopathy can offer in surgical diseases. Homeopathic medicines cannot take the place of surgery but can be of great help to the patients who do not want to go for surgery or cannot be operated upon due to various medical reasons. It is also ideal for underdeveloped and developing countries where financial factors play a major role in deciding the options for treatment.
