8 Best Homeopathic Medicines for Stomach Ulcers

Stomach ulcers are sores or ulcers arising in the lining of the stomach. They are also known as gastric ulcers. In a majority of the cases, stomach ulcers are caused by infection with Helicobacter pylori bacterium. Another frequent cause is long term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s). Homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers help to heal the sores in the stomach and prevent the tendency towards stomach ulcers in the chronic phase.    homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers

Tobacco smoking, drinking alcohol and stress are the risk factors that predispose a person to stomach ulcers. The protective mucus lining of the stomach is reduced due to the above causes. This allows the acid content of the stomach to eat away the inner tissue lining, resulting in ulcer formation.

Symptoms of Stomach Ulcers

The major symptom of stomach ulcers is pain/burning in the epigastric region. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, bloating, loss of appetite, weight loss and hematemesis (vomiting of blood).

Homeopathic Medicines for Stomach Ulcers

Homeopathy offers a very safe and effective treatment for stomach ulcers. Homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers primarily help reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms of stomach ulcers in the acute phase. Homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers are selected as per individual symptoms that vary from person to person. Argentum Nitricum,  Nux Vomica, Kali Bichromicum, Lycopodium, Carbo Veg, Hydrastis, Phosphorous, and Graphites are the top remedies for stomach ulcers.

1. Argentum Nitricum – For Stomach Ulcers with Radiating Pains

In my experience, Argentum Nitricum rates among the best medicines for stomach ulcers. This medicine is well indicated when sharp ulcerative or burning pain is felt in the stomach and radiates to other regions of the abdomen. The pain is sometimes gnawing in nature. Symptoms such as belching, nausea, vomiting may also appear along with these radiating pains. Abdominal distension may also be present in such cases where Argentum Nitricum will prove one of the most effective medicines for stomach ulcers.

2. Nux Vomica – For Stomach Ulcers where Eating Worsens Pain

Nux Vomica has shown the most satisfactory results in stomach ulcer cases where pain in the stomach is felt from eating even the smallest amount of food. The stomach region is also sensitive to touch in such cases. Nux Vomica is also one of the best-suited medicines for stomach ulcers where spicy food, coffee, tobacco, and alcoholic drinks worsen the symptoms. Tightness and pressure may be felt in the stomach after eating. Nausea, vomiting, eructations, flatulence, and heartburn may accompany the above symptoms.

3. Kali Bichromicum – For Ulcers in Stomach

Kali Bichromicum is another of the top grade medicines for stomach ulcers. I have seen amazing recoveries in gastriculcer cases with Kali Bichromicum. It is indicated in round ulcers with a feeling of heaviness in the stomach soon after eating. The food seems to sit in the stomach like a load. Appetite is low in cases where Kali Bichromicum will work as one of the most effective Homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers.

4. Lycopodium Clavatum – For Boated Abdomen

Lycopodium has proved itself as the most useful among medicines for stomach ulcers where the main symptoms are burning, constrictive pains attended with marked flatulence and fullness/bloating of the abdomen. Bloating starts soon after eating. A person in need of Lycopodium may get relief in pain from taking warm water. Farinaceous food like cabbage and beans worsen the symptoms. Lycopodium Clavatum is known among the best medicines for stomach ulcers with any of the above-mentioned symptoms.

5. Carbo Veg – For Stomach Ulcers

Carbo Veg is another of the prominently indicated medicines for stomach ulcers. It is most helpful when burning pain in the stomach is accompanied by sour belching or heartburn. The pain may extend from the stomach to the back. The epigastric area may also be sensitive and tender to touch. Eating the smallest amount of food, even light food, worsens the symptoms in such cases where Carbo Veg will prove the most effective among Homeopathic medicines for stomach ulcers to heal the condition.

6. Hydrastis Canadensis – For Stomach Ulcers with Weight Loss

In my clinical practice, Hydrastis has proved extremely effective in treating stomach ulcers where they are accompanied by weight loss and emaciation. A key symptom is a constant sore feeling in the stomach. Cutting and sharp pain in the stomach may also be present in cases where Hydrastis works as one of the most effective medicines for stomach ulcers. Weakness and a loathing of food in epigastrium are other symptoms to look out for. Hydrastis is also one of the major medicines for chronic gastritis.

7. Graphites – For Stomach Ulcers with Vomiting after Eating

In case of ulcers with vomiting immediately after eating food, Graphites has shown the most promising results among medicines for stomach ulcers. Constrictive and burning pain in the stomach is experienced after eating.

Homeopathic Medicines for Swollen Knee

A swollen knee is the result of the accumulation of fluid in or around the knee joint. It is commonly referred to as a ‘knee joint effusion’ or ‘water on the knee.’ Knee swelling can come on suddenly or gradually, can be mild or severe and can limit the movement of the leg. It often causes pain and can make walking very uncomfortable. The swelling can be both unilateral (affecting one knee) and bilateral (affecting both knees). Homeopathic medicines for swollen knee treat the condition in a gradual, safe and natural way.      homeopathic medicines for swollen knee

The most common cause of a swollen knee is an injury, but in some cases, it may develop due to an underlying problem in the knee joint. The structure of the knee joint is as follows: The knee joint has a capsule, which is like a sac surrounding the whole joint. This capsule contains the synovial fluid which nourishes and lubricates the joint, enabling it to smoothly carry out movements of the body. The joint capsule acts as a container, keeping the fluid within the knee joint. Sometimes it may happen that the joint becomes overworked, or twisted. In case the joint gets irritated, it responds by producing more fluid in order to protect and heal itself. This is how the term ‘water on the knee’ has come about.

Homeopathic Medicines for Swollen Knee

There are various forms of conventional treatment for a swollen knee depending upon the cause for it. For a swollen knee caused by an infection, antibiotics are given to treat the underlying infection. In inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) are usually prescribed. The above mentioned conventional treatment can, however, have adverse side effects on the body, the scope of which is totally emitted in Homeopathy. Both acute and chronic conditions respond well to Homeopathy. Apis Mellifica, Arnica Montana, Bryonia Alba, Benzoic Acid, Rhus Tox, Sticta Pulmonaria, Benzoicum Acidum, Silicea, and Kali Iodatum are the top remedies for a swollen knee.

1. Apis Mellifica – Where Pain Worsens Under Pressure

Apis Mellifica, also known as the Poison of the Honey Bee, is a medicine derived from dried honeybees commonly found in the Western region and Europe. Apis Mellifica is an effective remedy with a sphere of action revolving around the urinary system, gastrointestinal system and the skin with characteristic burning stinging pains as that from the bite of a bee.
It is used to treat a swollen knee that is accompanied by intense, stinging, and shooting pain in the knees. The pain worsens under pressure. The knee may appear shiny, sore, and sensitive to the touch. In the case of housemaid’s knee, it is indicated when the knee is highly swollen, sore and sensitive to touch. In some cases, the knee pain is of burning, stinging nature. Slight touch and pressure can worsen the pain.

2. Arnica Montana – For Swelling Due to Injury

Arnica Montana is used to treat a swollen knee that develops as a result of an injury or trauma. Arnica is also known as Leopard’s Bane, which is a perennial flowering plant native to Europe. It belongs to the family Compositae. Its main sphere of action is around the muscles and the cellular tissues of the body by acting through the cerebrospinal system. Other symptoms include soreness, bruising and pain. A sensation of dislocation with a tenderness of the knee joint may also be present.

3. Bryonia Alba – For Swelling Due to Rheumatic Joint

Bryonia Alba is a medicine used to treat swelling in the knees due to a rheumatic joint complaint. It is also known as White Bryony and belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae. This is a perennial climbing herb found in Europe and Northern Iran. The knee joint is red, hot and swollen. Along with swelling, a sharp, tearing, stitching pain may also be present. The slightest movement of the knee can worsen the pain. Through the cerebrospinal nervous system, no other remedy affects the mucous membranes as Bryonia does.

Other Significant Remedies

4. Benzoic Acid – For Swollen Knee due to Gout

Benzoic Acid is a medicine used to treat a swollen knee due to gout. Along with swelling, painful nodes on the knee joint may be present. Drawing pain in the knees, a cracking sound upon movement and aggravation of the symptoms might indicate the need for this medicine.

5. Rhus Tox – For Swelling with Stiffness

Rhus Tox is used to treat a swollen knee with stiffness. The knee feels hot, painful, heavy and tense. Massage and movement help ease the pain.

6. Sticta Pulmonaria – Swelling due to Bursitis

Sticta Pulmonaria is one of the best medicines for a swollen knee that occurs due to bursitis. The main symptom that indicates the need for this medicine is a red, hot, intensely swollen knee. This is due to the collection of a significant amount of fluid in the patellar bursa. Stretching the leg or moving about often brings relief. For housemaid’s knee, the primary guiding symptom for using this medicine is severe shooting pain in the affected knee. The knee is also highly inflammed with marked redness and heat.

7. Benzoicum Acidum – For Gout affecting Knee Joint

Benzoicum Acidum is a remedy for gout that affects the knee joint. The joint is swollen and painful with a cracking sound on movement. In some cases, nodes from the deposits of urate crystals may be present on the knees.

4. Silicea – For Tearing Knee Pain

Silicea is a natural medicine for housemaid’s knee and swelling when knee pains are tearing in nature. Pressure and exercise worsen the pain over the knee. The knee is also highly swollen and shining.

5. Kali Iodatum – Swelling Aggravated at Night

The main feature to use Kali Iodatum is the pain over knee worse from lying on the affected side. Other symptoms indicating Kali Iodatum use are swelling over knee aggravated at night time.

Risk Factors that lead to a Swollen Knee

Following are some risk factors that can predispose a person to a condition like swollen knee:

1. Age: The risk of developing diseases which lead to knee effusion, like arthritis, increases with age. This makes older adults more vulnerable to develop a condition like a swollen knee.

2. Sports: People who are actively involved in sports that involve twisting the knee, such as basketball, are more likely to experience knee injuries that cause swelling.

3. Obesity: Excess weight puts added stress on the knee joint, thus contributing to the tissue and joint overload and knee degeneration that can lead to a swollen knee. Obesity increases the risk of osteoarthritis, one of the more frequent causes of knee swelling.

4. Occupation: Occupations that including sitting on the knees for hours together or hobbies like gardening, increase the pressure on the knees thus causing a knee effusion presenting itself as a swelling.

Symptoms of Swollen Knee

The symptoms corresponding to the condition are swelling and redness of the affected area along with tenderness and a warm feeling on the joint.

Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations

‘We are what we eat’ and hence diet plays an important role in every disease condition. While some foods can make things worse, there are plenty of anti-inflammatory foods that can ease the swollen knee joints.

1. Choose fish over red meat as red meat is rich in cholesterol and salt, thereby contributing to inflammation. Cooking in olive oil (rich in omega-9 fatty acid) can help reduce inflammation. Other useful food items are nuts like walnuts, almond, and hazelnuts along with garlic, onion, beans and lots of high fiber rich food and fruits.

2. To reduce inflammation, avoid processed foods such as packaged meats, cookies, chips, and other snacks. These are often high in unhealthy fats, salts, and sugars, which are linked to inflammation. Limiting your alcohol intake is also important, especially when taking certain medications.

Some lifestyle changes that can help prevent and manage a swollen knee include wearing proper shoes while walking, avoiding high heels for extended periods of time, warming up before an intense physical activity, performing light exercise to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, keeping a check on the weight since being overweight can put extra stress on the bones and joints, always maintaining the correct posture (especially while while at work, sitting or driving), lifting weight with care and consuming appropriate quantities of calcium and Vitamin D.

Wonderful Homeopathic Remedies for Peptic Ulcer

Have you been suffering from abdominal pain that gets more severe when you are on an empty stomach? It is likely that you have contracted a peptic ulcer. A peptic ulcer even referred to as peptic ulcer disease (PUD), is an open sore ring in the gastrointestinal tract that is essentially acidic in nature and causes severe pain. It is a mucousal erosion that occurs on the inner lining of the esophagus, stomach or upper parts of the small intestinal tract and is characterized by abdominal pain. Homeopathic remedies for peptic ulcers help provide suitable relief from this painful condition since these remedies have practically no side-effects and are non-toxic.  Homeopathic Remedies for peptic ulcers

Nearly 70–90% cases of such ulcers are linked to a spiral-shaped bacterium that thrives in the acidic environment of the stomach.  The incidence of peptic ulcers occurring in the duodenum (the initial tract of the small intestine) is four times higher than those arising in the stomach.

I will discuss some remedies and myths of this disorder later in the article.

Homeopathic Remedies for Peptic Ulcers

There are a wide variety of medicines for Peptic Ulcers, ranging from Uranium Nitricum, Kali Bich and Graphites to Crotalus Horridus, Geranium and Graphites.

I find Uranium Nitricum to be the ideal remedy for gastric and duodenal ulcers characterized by boring pain in the pyloric region, a bloated abdomen, and a ravenous appetite followed by flatulence.

Kali Bich is best suited for round ulcers occurring in the stomach that lead to vomiting of bright yellow water and a load in the stomach immediately after eating, giving the patient the feeling that digestion has come to a standstill.

Crotalus Horridus is helpful in cases of ulceration in the stomach due to chronic alcoholism. Patients who are unable to retain anything, exhibit violent vomiting or vomit blood benefit from this medicine. Graphites is good for treating duodenal ulcers marked by a burning in the stomach and a feeling of hunger.

Kinds of Peptic Ulcers

Broadly speaking, peptic ulcers are classified into two main categories. The esophageal ulcers are those that occur in the esophagus, hollow tube through which food moves from your throat to your stomach. The duodenal ulcers are the ones that erupt inside of the upper portion of the duodenum, the small intestine.

The ulcers that are found in the stomach are termed as the gastric ulcers.

There is also a Meckel’s diverticulum ulcer, which is characterized by a lot of tenderness.

Symptoms of Peptic Ulcers

The primary symptom of a peptic ulcer is, of course, pain. The pain causes a burning sensation and gets more acute when the stomach acid passes over the sores. The pain can be experienced anywhere in the region of the navel, spreading to the breastbone.

The sensation of pain is worsened on an empty stomach and often gets more acute at night. The pattern of the pain is such that it may go away temporarily on consuming some non-acid producing foods but keeps returning from time to time.

The less common signs and symptoms of the peptic ulcers may include vomiting of blood that may look reddish or blackish in color, dark blood in stools or stools that are blackish, the feeling of nausea, a sudden drop in weight or appetite, etc.

Myths about Peptic Ulcers

The primary factor responsible for peptic ulcer is a chronic swelling caused by the Helicobacter pylori bacteria.

These ulcers can also be triggered by the use of NSAIDS. While the incidence of duodenal ulcers has fallen considerably during the past three decades or so, the number of cases of gastric ulcers have registered a rise, primarily due to the widespread use of NSAIDs.

The most common myth associated with peptic ulcers is that they are caused by highly spiced foods or a stress related job. It has also been believed that smoking, caffeine, coffee or alcohol consumption lead to this condition.

However, these are mostly myths and research has clearly shown that it is a bacterial infection or some medications which essentially trigger peptic ulcers.

Natural remedies for peptic ulcers not only provide permanent relief from pain and other related symptoms, they also treat the body’s inability to fight with helicobacter pylori . Thus once treated with natural remedies, peptic ulcers will be gone for good

Homeopathic Remedies for Urethral Stricture Treatment

Difficulty in passing urine and even pain in the process, especially in males, is not something normal. It is most likely an indication of the narrowing of the urethra, what doctors refer to as Urethral Stricture. The urethra is the lower-most part of the urinary tract through which urine is passed out from the urinary bladder. Urethral Stricture is more common in males than in females. Rather, Urethral Stricture in females is of a very rare occurrence. Urethral Stricture can be congenital or acquired.

These homeopathic remedies for urethral stricture are completely safe and natural remedies, with no side effects, ensure that the passage of urine becomes normal again and there is no pain in the process.  Homeopathic Remedies for Urethral Stricture

Top Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Urethral Stricture

Clematis, Chimaphila, Cantharis, Thiosinaminum, Conium, Clematis, Sulph Lod, Arnica and Magnesium Mur are the top remedies used to treat urethral stricture.

1. Clematis: For Urethral Stricture in the Beginning Stages

Clematis is the best prescription in the very beginning stage of Urethral Stricture. This natural medicine can relieve many symptoms associated with Urethral constriction. The first symptom that calls for the use of Clematis is a feeble stream of urine with slow passage of urine. An extreme constricted sensation is felt in the urethra while passing urine by the patient. The second complaint that can be relieved with Clematis is the difficulty faced by the patient in clearing the full bladder in one go. The urine cannot be passed out once. The flow of urine starts then stops and starts again. This cycle continues several times. The patient always feels as if some urine is still left behind in the bladder. Clematis is also the best remedy when the patient complains that the urine is passed drop by drop. Clematis helps in establishing the proper flow of urine in a stream. It is also helpful for all those patients of Urethral Stricture who have a history of gonorrhea for a long duration. The complaint usually occurs after suppressed gonorrhea. In addition to a history of suppressed gonorrhea discharge, the other complaints can be dribbling urine, intermittent urine flow and feeble urine steam.

2. Chimaphila: When there is Straining to Pass Urine

Chimaphila is of great help for urethral stricture patients who have to apply a lot of strain to pass urine. In spite of efforts, the urine passed is very less in quantity. One characteristic feature unique for the use of this natural medicine is a specific position in which the patient is able to empty the bladder. The position is standing with feet set wide apart and body stooped forward. So, it’s only by standing with feet wide apart and inclining the body in a forward position that a person is able to pass urine. When such peculiar symptoms come to light, the selection of the correct medicine becomes easy and excellent results follow.

3. Cantharis: For Urine passing out in Drops with Burning Pain

Cantharis is a very well known and widely used natural medicine for various kinds of urinary troubles. Cantharis is very beneficial in Urethral Stricture cases when the foremost complaint is the passage of a few drops of urine through the urge to pass urine is almost constantly present. The urine is passed with much violent, burning pains. The burning pains start before urination, remain while passing urine and continue thereafter. Cantharis is also the best remedy for Urinary Tract Infection due to Urethral Stricture with difficult, painful, burning and almost scalding urine.

4. Thiosinaminum: To Dissolve Scars in Urethral Stricture

Thiosinaminum is known for its ability to dissolve scars formed anywhere in the body. Thiosinaminum can work wonders in Urethral Stricture cases where the cicatricial tissue is formed in urethra due to any cause. The resolving power of this natural remedy in scar cases cannot be matched by any other medicine. The scar will get soft followed by complete disappearance with the use of Thiosinaminum.

5. Conium: For Intermittent Urine Stream

Conium is a natural remedy that can help patients of Urethral Stricture where the main trouble is the intermittent stream of urine. It takes a lot of time to complete the act of urination. The time taken is due to intermittent urine flow. The urine starts to flow and then stops and this process of starting and stopping is repeated several times to completely pass the urine out.

6. Clematis and Sulph Lod: For Stricture following Gonorrhea

Clematis is a very beneficial natural medicine for use in Urethral Stricture following gonorrhoea. Clematis can help the persons who have a feeble stream of urine or interrupted urination. Clematis can also help in case of dribbling urine and inability to pass urine in one go. Sulph Lod is the ideal remedy when the urine passes drop by drop and there is a frequent urge to pass urine. The frequency to pass urine is mostly worse at night.

7. Arnica: For Urethral Stricture following Injury or Trauma

Arnica is among the top natural medicines for its universal curing action in trauma and injury cases. Arnica can help all those cases of Urethral Stricture that are a result of an injury. Injuries basically caused by blunt objects, a blow or a fall are covered by this medicine. The patient needing Arnica usually complains of sore and bruised pain in urethra while urinating or otherwise.

8. Conium and Magnesium Mur: For Intermittent Passage of Urine

Conium is of great help when the patient complains of intermittent passing of urine due to Urethral Stricture. The urine starts and stops and the cycle is repeated until the whole bladder is emptied. Magnesium Mur is the ideal choice when the patient has to really strain to empty the bladder. The urine is passed out with much difficulty after putting in a lot of pressure.

9. Clematis and Oleum Santali: For Feeble Stream of Urine

Clematis and Oleum Santali proves to be a very effective natural treatment for Urethral Strictures. Clematis is a good remedy when a feeble stream is accompanied by intermittent passing of urine. Oleum Santali is the medicine to be used when the urine stream is very slow and scanty.

10. Clematis and Cantharis: For Dribbling Urination

Clematis is a natural medicine that can help all those patients of Urethral Stricture who have dribbling (passage in drops) urination. Along with dribbling passing of urine, a constricted feeling in the urethra is always present. When the dribbling of urine is accompanied by a burning sensation of high degree, then Cantharis is a very beneficial medicine.

Symptoms and causes of Urethral Stricture

The symptoms of Urethral Stricture include a diminished force of urine stream, pain during passing urine, urine passing out in drops, and inability to completely empty bladder. Urinary Tract Infection, Calculus and Hydronephrosis are a few complications. The main cause behind Urethral Stricture is scar formation following trauma or injury to the urethra and surgical operations. The trauma may follow any hit or blow on the urethra or it occurs following instrumentation (Endoscopy, catheter introduction). Post-operative Urethral Stricture mainly follows a prostate operation. Urethral Stricture may also appear after infections and inflammatory conditions of the urethra. The main infection is a gonorrhoeal infection.
