Homeopathic Treatment of Uterine Fibroids & Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) & Ovarian Cyst Patient
Uterus or womb is a major female hormone-responsive reproductive sex organ of human. One end, the cervix, opens into the vagina, while the other is connected to fallopian tubes.It is within the uterus that the fetus develops during pregnancy and gain nutrition from mother. Uterus is responsible for secretion of various hormones before, during and after pregnancy hence to keep mother and child both healthy. After menopause uterus continue to regulate the oestrogen hormone hence protect female from osteoporosis i.e destruction of bones.
# Fibroid is also known as leiomyoma; fibromyoma; myoma.
# Fibroid is Benign tumours of muscle and connective tissue that develop within or are attached to the uterine wall.
# It Occurs mostly in the reproductive age group ( 16-45 yrs of age ). Oestrogen hormones, growth hormones have been implicated in growth of fibroids.
# Due to hormonal imbalance,thickening of muscle layer of uterine wall occur resulting in formation of fibroids.
# It is suggested that fibroids enlarge with Oestrogen therapy (such as oral contraceptives).
# Fibroids can be microscopic, but they can also grow to fill the uterine cavity, weighing several pounds. It is possible for a single fibroid to develop, which begin as small seedlings spread throughout the muscular walls of the uterus.
# They slowly enlarge and become more nodular, frequently intruding into the cavity of the uterus or growing out beyond the normal boundary of the uterus.
# Emotional cause:-when a female is under continuous stress due to any problem with her husband or children or anyone for whom she care like her child, she is more susceptible to suffer from the disease like uterine fibroid and polycystic ovarian disease. It is because of the disturbance in female hormones like oestrogen whose level in body is directly related with the emotional plane (attachment).

In this existing mode of treatment, they have no medicine for fibroid or PCOD. Doctor say “the only solution to your fibroid or PCOD is surgery”. As soon as fibroids are detected, doctors immediately recommend surgery whether required or not. But in reality, surgery is only meant for handling emergencies, not to cut out the uterus of a healthy women. They advice that your family is complete , go for the operation as soon as possible.
OPERATION(hysterectomy), WHEN REQUIRED?
In reality there is only 1% of cases which need emergency handling and no need for that in all other cases. Even in the cases of severe bleeding , by selection of right homoeopathic remedy it is at once control.
OPERATION(hysterectomy), WHY TO AVOID?
The organ given to us by GOD is not useless or worthless. All the organs in the body are of much importance and all have their own functions. No other organ in our body can take over the function of first. In the same manner uterus in female not only made for giving birth to the babies but it has other function too. Special types of hormones are released from the uterus, which protect the female from heart attack, high blood pressure, arthritis i.e joint pain, osteoporosis i.e destruction of bones, obesity, breast cancer, spinal problems etc.But in the case the operation is done and uterus is cut out, no one can save the patient from all the above diseases like heart problem, joint pain, high blood pressure, palpitation, hot flushes, obesity and many more. So think twice before going for surgery whether you are handicapping yourself or making your body diseased.
# Homoeopathy gives weightage to “who is suffering”, whether than what she is suffering from. This means when other sciences aim at treating diseases in man, homoeopathic science at the very inception, has been devised to treat the man in disease.
# In modern science homoeopathy, the emphasis is given to remove the cause, the effect will disappear automatically.
# Homoeopathic science strictly believe that all the diseases occur with the permission of individual genetic code.
# Same is true for fibroid in uterus and PCOD’s these diseases are also governed by and dependent on the genetic code and consider the patient as a whole. That is why in homoeopathic case taking whole history of patient i.e her physical symptoms, nature and behaviour, with her surroundings ups and downs in life is taken into consideration and after complete history of the patient, the homoeopathic medicine is selected which acted on the patient as a whole and help her to live a healthy life.
