Hormonal Imbalances and Homoeopathy

Homoeopathy scores a point of advantage as this system has the relationship between the drugs and the personality patterns of the patients. With the knowledge of endocrinology, we learn about the hormones of different ductless glands, and their influence over mental& biological make up of the individual. Different glands have different functions but they seem to act synergistically. Very often the disordered functions of one gland with hypo or hyper functions puts us out of tract in selection of a totality based similar drug. But study of case does indicate as simillimum.

I had an occasion to crtically review the effect of drugs like Cimicifuga, Ignatia, Lachesis, Sanguinaria and Sepia in cases of menopausal problems.Except Lachesis, which was 6x(at administration level), the others were 2x and 3x. The clinical efficacy results were of the order of 80% and higher. Obviously it is a better choice to HRT which is known for many side effects. This made me to think of other hormonal problems. Life-style has a bearing on the management  of disturbed endocrinological problems but homoeopathy looks to these  as changed personality & pathological problems.

Depending on type of thyroid problem one can think of Calcarea and Baryta salts, or Graphites & Phospohrus. but Nux Vomica is a drug, which largely suits followed by other matching drugs. If pituitary is thought perhaps Pulsatilla & Platina will be on top of the list. Coming to the sex and senility in the top of the list may have Conium maculatum, Selenium, Sepia, Sulphur, Lachesis, Lycopodium,pulsatilla & others like Agnus, Ginseng &Damiana.

The above is not the end. Homoeopathy has many herbal extracts which target well to the problems related to endocrine dysfunction.


In Britian, there is a Department of Happiness. Some of their findings need to be recorded. It says married people are happier.I confess i was surprised . I thought the otherwise.But studies are to be believed and results used for betterment of the society. Plenty of sex, companionship and trust produce a general sense of well-being. Government or say policies to alleviate misery, or for the policy makers to know how can they make the citizen more cheerful. Not all results make cheerful reading. Women tend to exhibit higher levels of depression. Happiness follows a U-shaped curve bottoming out at the age of 35-50.

In India, we have a Department of Family welfare. I know it advocates less of children, does work of child and maternal care and advocates safe-sex.It is not only sex-ratio but literary rate, unemployment , poor health,poor empowerement, violence proneness are all unfavourable. With all unfairness to them, we still call them 'fair sex'.

The age 35-50 with fairness to fair-sex can be called middle age. It is the age majority of the females have menopause.Apart from unhappiness of defined and undefined caused, it has problems like irregularity of rhythm, flow of menses, symptoms of hot flushes , vaginal dryness, urethritis, incontinence, irritability, tiredness and lack of libido.A study on Cimicifuga, Ignatia, Sanguinaria, Sepia at D3 and Lachesis at D6 gave more then excellent coverage. Big relief for homoeopaths, they can confidently manage with above and other medicines like Fraxinus amer.,Hydrastis, Pulsatilla,Sabina, Sabal Serrulata, Trillium, Viburnum op.etc.

In post-menopausal women gonodotrophin which have both luteinising & follicle stimulating hormones at higher level.They have links to fertility as well serves as tool to detection of the menopausal stage. In some cases of non- homoeopathic medication ovarian hyper stimulation may occur resulting in gastro-intestinal disturbance,ascites, pleural effusion, oliguria, hypertension and even thrombo-embolism.This information over burden is to place such symptoms to the right slot.

There are scientific reasons linked to reproductive physiology like decrease of oestrogen, increase of FSH but I could not answer one question why such phase change in females at middle age of 45 and why in males in around 65 plus.Depriving females of fertility early makes them feel aged. Psychological factors come to play in their life. At times physiological factor with psychological element may complex the situation.Acute menopausal symptoms are attended in hospital with HRT. Subjective evaluation of symptoms & severity may call for specialized medical care.
