Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Proctitis

Inflammation of the lining of rectum is referred to as proctitis. Rectum is the terminal part of the large intestine. The rectum extends between the sigmoid colon and the anal canal. It is where the faeces are stored until they leave the body through the anus. Proctitits is the condition where the lining of the rectum gets inflamed. Proctitits may be acute or chronic in nature. Diagnosis of proctitis involves looking down the rectum with a proctoscope.

Causes of proctitis

The major among the various causes of proctitis are inflammatory bowel disease (crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis), sexually transmitted infections in persons involved in anal intercourse (the sexually transmitted infections mainly include chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes simplex virus 1 and 2), radiation therapy for cancer, trauma and antibiotics. In some cases, proctitis may arise idiopathically i.e. without any known cause.

Symptoms of proctitis

The symptoms of proctitis include a continuous urge to pass stool, feeling as if the bowels were not evacuated completely following bowel movements, fullness in the rectum, rectal bleeding, passage of mucus from rectum, irritation in the anus or rectum, pain in the rectum, pain in rectum while passing stool and left-sided abdomen pain. Due to bleeding, signs of anaemia may arise. These include weakness, pale skin, dizziness and shortness of breath.

Homeopathic treatment of proctitis

The Homeopathic mode offers wonderful treatment for proctitis. Homeopathic treatment of proctitis is based upon symptomatic presentation of the case. Homeopathic medicines are selected individually for each case of proctitis. These medicines help reduce the inflammation of rectum and the associated symptoms in a very safe and gentle way, without any side effects. The most prominently indicated Homeopathic medicines for proctitis are Aloe Socotrina, Nux Vomica, Merc Sol, Ratanhia and Nitric Acid. The ideal Homeopathic medicine is selected based on the symptoms that show up.

Homeopathic Medicines for Proctitis

Aloe Socotrina – Top grade Homeopathic medicine for proctitis

Aloe Socotrina is one of the top grade Homeopathic medicines for treating proctitis. The person needing Aloe Socotrina mainly complains of a constant bearing down in the rectum. Urgency to pass stool may be marked. The person rushes to pass stool immediately after eating or drinking. Involuntary passage of stool is observed in some cases. Along with this, burning in the rectum and anus may also be felt. Cold water application may provide relief from the burning. Soreness of anus may attend. Another accompanying symptom is passage of jelly-like mucus with stool.

Nux Vomica – Best Homeopathic medicine for proctitis with continuous, ineffectual urge to pass stool

Nux Vomica is an excellent Homeopathic medicine for proctitis cases where there is a continuous, ineffectual urge to pass stool. Persons needing Nux Vomica feel constant uneasiness in the rectum. However, scanty stool is passed each time. Sharp pain in the rectum may follow the passing of stool. The urge to pass stool renews soon after. Stool is unsatisfactory and there is always the feeling that some stool has remained in the rectum. Ineffectual urge to pass stool is most prominent.

Merc Sol – Reliable Homeopathic medicine for treating proctitis where blood and mucus accompany stool

For proctitis cases where blood and mucus accompany stool, Merc Sol is the most effective prescription. Burning and rawness at the anus may be present. Itching at anus is also noted in a few cases. Stools are frequent. Tenesmus of rectum is marked with a “never get done” feeling. Weakness after stool is also marked. In a few cases, a feeling faintness may arise. Chilly feeling may attend.

Ratanhia – Homeopathic medicine for proctitis with severe rectal pain while passing stool

Ratanhia is a well indicated Homeopathic medicine to treat proctitis with prominent pain in rectum while passing stool. In a majority of the cases, burning at anus is also present. Burning at anus may continue for long hours after passing stool. Knife-like stitching pain at the anus is also noted in a few cases. Another key feature deciding in favour of Homeopathic medicine Ratanhia as the best choice is sharp pain in the rectum as if from stepping on broken glass.

Nitric Acid – Effective Homeopathic medicine for proctitis with tearing pain in rectum on passing stool

Nitric Acid is the most suitable choice of Homeopathic medicine for proctitis cases where the person complains of tearing pain in the rectum on passing stool. It is also indicated for treating proctitis where there is cutting pain in rectum after passing stool. Bright bleeding from rectum may be present along with stool. In some cases, irritation or itching at the anus is also observed. Irritability and weakness after passing stool is another attending feature.

    Hey Doc, really hoping you can help. Been dealing with proctitis for 20 years, been on all the meds, had many colonoscopies etc. Nothing has worked, I am currently getting a severe flair- every other week that lasts for about 3-4 days. Do you really think one of your products (I was thinking Nux Vomica- this matches my symptoms the best will actually help. If so, is this med oral, how often do I take it and how much would this cost me a month. I am in great need of some help but don’t have a lot to spend on this ( I am a social worker) and barley make ends meet as sit is but I need relief. I greatly hope you respond, hope you are doing well yourself

    Dear doctor,
    My mother, 68 yrs old suffers from ulcerative colitis and has been having a flare up for the past few months. She was bleeding and the doctor had given Entofoam enema for some time. The bleeding subsided but the frequency of motions didn’t stop resuting in recurring ulceration of rectum. She takes Pentasa granules 1 gm twice a day and Wysolone 10 mg 3 times a day. She passes frequent stools and the feeling of incomplete voiding is always felt. She has lot of pain passing stools and even after passing it she has constant pricking sharp pain in the inner lining of her rectum. What homeopathy medicine can I give her to heal the rectal ulcers? I also would want to know how the homeo drugs will interact with the allopathy medicines she is already on.
    Thank you.

    I am suffering from ulcerative colitis/proctitis since three years .since twenty five years l have been taking homeopathic medicine for All my health problems. Initially i took homeopathy for this problem also but when there was no improvement in this so i had to switch over to allopathic where after colonoscopy i was diagnosed with colitis in 2015 by doctor sarval. After that i continued with allopathic for almost 3 to 4 months though there was improvement but it aggrevated many other problems like rashes on skin. Around 6 months back i have been diagnosed with diabeties. Now i am on medication for sugar as well as blood pressure allopathic and for proctities i am continuing with homeopathy but there is no releif.
