Homeopathy in Bladder Troubles
By. DR. AVERSENQ, of Toulouse
NEURALGIAS CAUSED BY INFLAMMATION AND PUS IN THE KIDNEYS AND KIDNEY STONES.
Among the remedies which are apt to relieve pain in the kidneys, radiating towards the bladder, there are three which prove helpful in the majority of cases. They are Berberis vulgaris, Sarsaparilla and Pareira Brava. Berberis vulgaris, which is usually prescribed in potencies ranging from the 3rd to the 6th centesimal, acts particularly upon the left kidney. It is useful if there is burning pain in the left kidney region. In addition it is useful if there are symptoms, such as pain in the lower part of the back, radiating into the legs, pain along the spermatic cord, pain in hips and thighs while urinating, brick red sediment in the urine. We can make use of Berberis in all cases of kidney stone and of infected kidneys, especially if infection is done to the bacillus coli. It should be prescribed either by itself, or in alternation with other remedies, which should be prescribed in accordance with individual conditions.
Sarsaparilla may be prescribed with success in cases of colic of the right kidney with or without bleeding, which affects the bladder as well. This remedy also is usually prescribed in potencies ranging from the 3rd to the 6th centesimal.
