Homeopathy for Cystitis (Bladder Infections)

Featured

Some of the most common symptoms of a  bladder infection are the constant urge to urinate as well as a constant feeling of fullness in the bladder, pain during urination, foul smelling urine, as well as other signs of inflammation such as fever.

The most well-known natural remedy for bladder infections is unsweetened cranberry juice, which may not be effective in all cases.

People with interstitial cystitis or chronic bladder infections should seek out treatment from a classical homeopath. Contact the clinic or a classical homeopath in your local area.

In acute cases of bladder infection, the following homeopathic remedies are the most commonly used and effective:

Cantharis: The #1 remedy for bladder infections. People needing this remedy have burning pains during urination, with a frequent, strong urge to urinate.

Aconite: Useful at the beginning of a bladder infection, when the symptoms come on very suddenly.

Sarsaparilla: Severe pain at the end of urination; can urinate only in dribbles.

Nux Vomica: Symptoms come on after overindulgence, drugs or alcohol. There is pain before or during urination.

Apis: Severe, hot burning pains. Use if Cantharis seems indicated but does not help.

Dosage: Give a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated homeopathic remedy, every 6 to 8 hours for up to 3 days. Switch to another remedy if there is no relief after 24 hours.

Homeopathy for Period Pain

Featured

Many women suffer from pain during their periods. Homeopathy can provide effective relief from period pain without putting a stress on the liver. Women with other hormonal symptoms such as irregular periods or  women who experience intense pain every month should see a classical homeopath for constitutional treatment.

For occasional or moderate period pains, the following homeopathic remedies are commonly indicated:

Belladonna: Useful when the pain comes on very suddenly. Throbbing pain with a sensation of heaviness, sometimes accompanied by headaches.

Magnesium Phosphoricum: Cramping pains that are relieved by pressure or warmth.

Colocynthis: This remedy can look similar to Mag Phos (pains better from pressure or warmth). A woman needing this remedy would also be in an irritable, angry mood.

Pulsatilla: This woman is very weepy and craves affection. She has no thirst and feels worse in a warm room.

Potency and Repetition: Give a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated homeopathic remedy up to every 4 hours. If there is no relief after 6-8 hours, try a different remedy.

If the remedy choice isn’t clear, try Magnesium Phosphoricum 6X Homeopathic Cell Salts. This is a great remedy for all types of cramping pains. It can be used for leg cramps or any type of muscle pain.
