Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

BHMS

Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

Infertility refers to the inability to conceive after having sex without protection. The biological inability of a man or a woman to contribute to conception and carry a full-term pregnancy may also be referred to as infertility. Among the various treatments for infertility, homeopathy accounts for being an effective one in both men and women.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in women

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of acid vaginal charges: Borax and Natrum Phos are considered to be the best homeopathic medicines for infertility in women because of acid vaginal charges. These medicines are used when the vaginal discharges are destructive, acrid and kills sperms. Borax is used when the discharge is like egg white, copious and warm and it helps in easy conception. Natrum Phos is used when the discharge is acrid, creamy or honey colored.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of prolonged and profuse periods: Calcarea Carb and Aletris Farionosa are used in case of too much prolonged, too profuse menstrual periods and periods which occur before time. Early mensus are experienced by patients. Anemia, leucorrhea, fatigues, tiredness and weakness may be experienced with menorragia.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men:

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with erectile dysfunction: There are several effective homeopathic medicines for this purpose. Agnus Castus is used when a man’s sexual desire and physical ability is low and the genitals stay relaxed, cold and flaccid. Caladium is best when infertility or impotency occurs due to mental depression. In this case, the genitals stay relaxed and weak erection is observed. Selenium is another efficient homeopathic medicine for erectile dysfunction in cases of slow and weak erections. Involuntary semen discharge may also be experienced.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with low sperm count: X-ray is the most effective homeopathic medicine for treating low sperm count in men. Sperm count gets increased and both the quantity and quality of sperm are enhanced.
  3. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with orchitis: Conium is an ideal homeopathic medicine for treating infertility in men with orchitis. The testicles are swollen, enlarged and become hard. Conium also helps when a patient has a history of suppressed sexual desire.

Homeopathy is the most natural treatment for fertility in men and women, with no side effects on the body. Homeopathic medicine works with following rule of the nature's law of cure and these medicines work naturally without producing any harm to the body. You should consult a homeopathic practitioner before taking any homeopathic remedy for infertility.

Does having 450 ml of Drinks once in a week harmful in diabetes? What is more preferable Rum? Whisky? Or Beer?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Does having 450 ml of Drinks once in a week harmful in diabetes? What is more preferable Rum? Whisky? Or Beer?
Mr. Lybrate-user, alcohol in any quantity is not beneficial in diabetes. 450 ml per week is a fairly large quantity when drinks like rum or whisky is considered as here is higher alcohol concentration in both. Beer 450 ml is not such a large quantity. However, alcohol gives empty calories, masks hypoglycemic awareness. Plus it does affect liver in the long run leading to alcoholic fatty liver disease and later its consequences. So in my opinion lesser quantity (about 180 ml per week) may be ok if drinks other than beer are consumed.

I am 24 years old. I would like to know the reasons diabetics. And also diet for diabetic patients.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am 24 years old. I would like to know the reasons diabetics. And also diet for diabetic patients.
Mr. Lybrate-user, the reasons why diabetes develops are multiple. In t1 diabetes there a complete loss of insulin secreting beta cells, due to production of antibodies. T1 is an auto immune disease. T2 is occuring either due to lack of insulin or increase resistance to its action. It is a familial disease, spreads in families. Other contributing factors are over weight or obesity, inactivity, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks. Diet for a person with diabetes has to be very specifically designed. However, certain precautions to be taken with regard to diet are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits about a 100 g a day. Also take high fiber containing foods like whole grain products. Take total calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels. Thanks for the question.

Flax seed is a rich source of essential fatty acids, especially in the form of omega-3 fatty acids. The scientists recommend that people with thyroiditis consume between 1,000 mg and 1,500 mg of fatty acids per day. These fatty acids help to promote healthy hormone production and act as anti-inflammatory agents, although more research is necessary regarding the possible risks and benefits of consuming flax seed.

LCHF diet has been proved to be good for diabetes. However it needs close monitoring and expert advice from a nutritionist or dietitian because if done wrongly it can affect other organs of the body. There is also a need to go for carb cycling during this diet every once in 15 days. For further details you can consult me online or on private chat.

A good diet to the mother is always good for the child. Coconut pulp and water is rich in natural electrolyte content which keeps the mother healthy. Mother's circulation delivers these things to the child making him gain weight and provide enough amniotic fluid around the child. Cannot comment upon the claims of fairness as these are not substantiated scientifically.

As long as your blood sugar is under control, you can participate in everything. Uncontrolled diabetics have a higher tendency for fungal infections hence use a protection when not trying for a baby.

I am diabetic patient and insulin dependent. Can I use tablets instead of injection?

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Secunderabad
I am diabetic patient and insulin dependent. Can I use tablets instead of injection?
Hello, please continue with insulin as doctor prescribed. If there is a possibility, doctor should have suggested the medicine instead. Its good to control your diabetes. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.
