Warts treated with Homeopathy – Clinical study

Warts treated with homeopathy is a clinical case study that appeared in Schwabe single remedy times (Vol 1, Issue 1) where homeopaths share their experience. Schwabe is a front runner in bringing new information in the field of homeopathy as knowledge exchange tool for homeopathic professionals for effective practice.

Patient case history

Mr. A. aged 49 years, residing at Mulund first visited on 13/05/2013

Chief complaint :

  1. Multiple warts over forehead and in scalp since 15 years.
  2. Now they are spreading on face and other body parts since 1 month.
  3. Chronic constipation — no desire for motion unless purgatives taken.
  4. High BP due to hectic job at five star kitchen equipment businesses.
  5. Sleeps very less, only 2 to 3 hours per day never satisfied and in morning he is not fresh; sometimes feels drowsy and unable to concentrate on business.

 

Origin, Duration and Progress – O.D.P.

The patient mainly from Calcutta had shifted to Mumbai 16 years ago. He was very healthy and had no complaint what so ever. But suddenly he had small warts over scalp which were non tender and fungoid type. Initially he neglected but after a period of 3 to 6 months, one more appeared so he met a skin specialist who had advised him cauterization. But he was much afraid to do that so he neglected that disease for nearly 8 years. Afterwards one by one small multiple warts appeared over scalp, but due to that fear of cauterization he did not met any doctor. A friend suggested homeopathy, which he had tried once with the consultation of a homeopath, but warts did not disappear, rather they continued spreading.

After a span of 7 years, a new wart came over forehead since 3 months which was quiet big in size and for the last one month it started spreading to chest and axilla region. Now this made him worry much. He said “as I am working in a five star hotel my business will get affected. Now I must cure this permanently, Doctor please kill this disease forever. Since coming to Mumbai, may be due to change of water, I am constipated and must take purgative for motion, please help me for this too. I also have high blood pressure and since 6 years, I have been taking allopathic medicine for blood pressure but it has never been controlled well. Please look into that as well. Sleep is very less, which is only for 2 to 3 hours. Due to that that I feel sleepy and drowsy throughout the day. Sometimes I was found sleeping in important business meeting which is very embarrassing.”

 

Analysis of case:

If we see the main PQRS symptom is — Indifference, mainly to disease. And when disease is getting more pronounced then he became more fearful and started praying to doctor, he was not ready for cauterization which is the therapy in allopathy, due to fear of hurt by it.

Evaluation of case:

Following rubrics were taken for evaluation of case.

  1. MIND — INDIFFERENCE SUFFERING TO
  2. MIND — INDIFFERENCE COMPLAIN DOES NOT
  3. MIND— DELUSION ABOUT TO RECEIVE INJURY, IS
  4. MIND — ESCAPE ATTEMPT TO
  5. MIND — CAUTIOUS
  6. MIND—ALERT
  7. MIND — DELUSION WELL HE IS
  8. MIND — PRAYING
  9. MIND — AILMENTS FROM EMBARRASSMENT 10.MIND — DELIRIUM BLAMES HIMSELF FOR HIS FOLLY.

Diarrhea treatment: Clinical trial of homeopathic cure for acute childhood diarrhea

Authors: Jennifer Jacobs, M.D., M.P.H. Department of Epidemiology, School of Public Health and Community Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington and  L. Margarita Jimenez, M.D., M.P.H. Department of Public Health, Health Sciences Center, University of Guadalajara and others

Objective: To investigate whether the finding in a previous study that homeopathic medicines decrease the duration of acute diarrhea in children could be replicated in a different study population.

Design: Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of diarrhea treatment

Setting: Private, charitable health clinic in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Subjects: A consecutive sample of 126 children, 6 months to 5 years of age, who presented during April through June, 1994, with more than three unformed stools in the previous 24 hours.

Intervention: Children received either an individualized homeopathic medicine or placebo, to be taken one dose after each unformed stool for 5 days. Parents recorded daily stools on diary cards, and health workers made home visits daily to monitor children on diarrhea treatment

Outcome measures: Predefined measures were based on the previous study: (1) duration of diarrhea, defined as the time until there were fewer than three unformed stools per day, for two consecutive days, and (2) Average number of stools per day for each group.

Results: Of the 126 children initially enrolled, 116 completed treatment. The mean number of stools per day over the entire 5-day treatment period was 3.2 for the treatment group and 4.5 for the placebo group (P = 0.023). A Kaplan-Meier survival analysis of the duration of diarrhea, which included data from all patient visits, showed an 18.4% greater probability that a child would be free of diarrhea by day 5 under homeopathic treatment (P = 0.036).

Conclusions: These results are consistent with the finding from the previous study that individualized homeopathic treatment decreases the duration of diarrhea and number of stools in children with acute childhood diarrhea. The results prove that homeopathy is effective in diarrhea treatment in children and results replicated across different population groups.

Homeopathy research-Animal Study-effects of Chamomilla, Damiana & Muira puama

We present you Homeopathic study reports of contemporary importance and in this article we cover the research done on animals with respect to Chamomilla, Damiana & Muira puama.

Chamomilla - Homeopathic pharmacological activity

  1. Effect of Homeopathic Chamomilla on Central Nervous System of experimental Animals

This study was aimed to eventuate the effects of 3x, 30CH and 0/3 potencies of Chamomilla on Central Nervous System in experimental animal by using the screening methodologies known in modern psychoneuro­-pharmacology like Acto-photometer, Roto-rod apparatus, Eddy’s hot plate and maximal — electro shock method. The results were statistically processed by analysis of variance test (ANOVA) to compare the effects on treatment group and Dunnet’s t test were used to determine the effect of each treatment against control group. The results showed that Chamomilla 0/3 significantly reduced locomotor activity (movements), exhibit muscle relaxant activity than Chomomillo 3x and 30 CH

(Chamomilla 0/3 is manufactured by Schwabe India in the group of LM potency)

 Damiana - Homeopathic Herb qualities

  1. Stimulating property of Damiana extracts on the sexual behavior of male rats

Sexually potent and sexually sluggish/impotent mole rats were treated orally with different amounts of Tumero diffuse (Damiana) and Proffitt poniculata fluid extracts-singly or in combination – improved the copulatory performance (act of penis going into the vagina) of sexually sluggish/impotent rats. The extracts also increased the percentage of rats achieving ejaculation and significantly reduced mount, intromission and ejaculation latencies, post-ejaculatory interval and intercopulotory interval. Neither extracts affected locomotor activity.

(Schwabe’s Damiaplant contains basically  Damiana. It is also available in mother tincture)

  Muira Puama - nerve tonic, libido enhancer

  1. Effects of Muira Puama in the chronic mild stress model

Muira puorno, is regarded as o “nerve tonic”. Traditional uses include states of lassitude with noticeable lock of desire/motivation, and to manage particularly stressful (physical and/or psychological) circumstances. Suggestive of antidepressant activity, the authors hove established that o specific PO ethanol extract (POEE) significantly decreases immobility in the tail suspension and forced swimming tests. The aim of this study was to verify the effects of POEE in the unpredictable chronic mild stress (UCMS) depression model in mice, given the construct and face valves of the UCMS as on experimental model of depression and the traditional use of this species. Over 6 weeks BALB/c mice were subjected to the UCMS protocol.

The effects of POEE and imipramine were evaluated in relation to coat state, splash-test grooming, and corticosterone levels. The coot state degradation, decreased grooming and increased serum corticosterone induced by UCMS were prevented by POEE and imipramine treatments. Authors have concluded that in addition to supporting traditional claims and previously reported antidepressant properties for POEE, this study shows that POEE prevents stress-induced HPA hyperactivity.

(Muira puama is a Brozlian plant. The mother tincture is manufactured from imported herb and marketed by Schwabe India).
