MY HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

The first major feature of my Homeopathic Treatment is the Indivualization for Treatment Determination.This means that different people may have different pathogenic reasons,symptoms and syndromes even though the disease name is the same, so treatment strategies and formulas are different. So different treatment strategies will be used according to the different causative factors.

The other major principle is Totality for Treatment Determination.This means that in all Diseases the whole organism suffers,even if organ pathology is conventionally recognized in a certain organ or part of the body.So,treatment should be applied for both the diseased organ or part of the body and for the totality of all current sufferings all over the body.

 

Modern Homeopathy should care equally

for both the Patient and the Disease.

FERTILITY HOMEOPATHY

Most important  hormones with impact on fertility

Most important  hormones with impact on fertility are:

FSH

-Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)

-LH, Prolactin,Oestradiol,Progesterone

-Testosterone,Insulin,Thyroxine

For women who are concerned about fertility issues, it is important that these hormones are within normal range and that they do not interact in an adverse way thereby causing problems for conception.Where there is hormonal imbalance, the chances of a good quality egg maturing would likely to be compromised. Age  is only one factor among many that may be involved in  hormonal imbalance

AMH(Anti-Myllerian Hormone)

AMH is produced by the granulosa cells of the small follicles in the ovary. As a product of the granulosa cells, which envelop each egg and provide them energy, AMH serves as a molecular biomarker for the  size of the ovarian egg reserve. Hence the level of AMH reflects the remaining potential of the ovary. Low AMH suggests approaching menopause or premature ovarian failure. AMH is a measure of egg quantity, but  it may be combined with  follicle imaging through  ultrasound scan for the estimation  of egg quality.A low AMH reading means that ovarian reserve is low, but in many cases AMH decline is reversible through appropriate homeopathic treatment.After improvement of AMH value,the chances to conceive naturally or through assisted conception are certainly increased,especially if reduced levels of FSH are also insured.

FSH

To turn into ova ,follicular cells must be stimulated by FSH secreted from hypophysis,an endocrine gland in the brain. Once the ovum is produced, the ovum itself produces another hormone, estradiol, which feeds back to hypophysis advising it to stop producing FSH for the time being. If the woman does not become pregnant, this ovum degenerates and period comes.Since the ovum degenerates,estradiol levels decline so that, without their inhibitory feedback, this gland in the brain starts secreting  FSH again, leading to another cycle.

If the ovary has many eggs, the FSH in a woman’s blood remains low because hypophysis  doesn’t need to work hard to get a normal ovulation. If the egg number is low, hypophysis needs to work harder to induce ovulation, so it increases the amount of FSH in an effort to stimulate the ovaries. So,a high FSH level means that the egg number is reduced , sometimes so low that pregnancy is not possible.By an appropriate and tailor-made homeopathic treatment for balancing and improving the functional efficiency of ovaries,FSH levels may be restored and indicative the succeded positive therapeutic result.

 

Ovarian Follicles and Ultrasound Scan

Ovarian antral or resting follicles are small follicles (about 2-8 mm in diameter) that  can be seen, measured and counted with ultrasound.A high quality ultrasound is the best way to accurately assess and count these small but critical structures. The number of antral follicles visible on ultrasound is indicative of the number of microscopic primordial follicles remaining in the ovary. Each primordial follicle contains an immature egg that can potentially develop and ovulate in the future.The number of visible antral follicles is an indication of the number of eggs remaining ,so that the fewer antral follicles seen, the fewer eggs remaining

 Ovarian follicle counts ,along with age,the case history and certain hormones, are  the best tools for estimating ovarian reserve, the expected response to ovarian stimulating drugs, and the chance for successful pregnancy with either natural conception or through in vitro fertilization.

 

Common causes of infertility

1)infertility due to a range of conditions,detected by conventional means,including: High FSH, endometriosis, PCOS, hormonal imbalances, low ovarian reserve as indicated by low AMH, low sperm count, low sperm motility, poor sperm morphology, sperm antibodies,early menopause,etc

2) infertility unexplained by conventional means,but often explained through the homeopathic case history and analysis

 

The Main Problem with IVF

IVF in all its varying formats i.e. IUI, natural  IVF, IVF and ICSI, the main problem often comes in the failure of implanting, that is when the embryos die after implanting into the uterus.The phase of embryo implantation and the establishment of an appropriate connection between trophoblast and endometrium is certainly the most critical for the IVF procedure.During this phase a thorough homeopathic prescribing may be involved,according to each one individual case requirements, for a positive completion and outcome of the whole IVF procedure.

 

Fertility Homeopathic treatment

Fertility Homeopathic Treatment is applied to restore or improve health and balance through which natural pregnancy or a better chance of IVF success will occur. The homeopathic treatment range from helping women to conceive to reducing their chances of a miscarriage and also may help men to improve their sperm quantity and quality.This help may be highly specific and prove to be essential and effective, since homeopathic remedies not only treat simply stress, emotions and symptoms ,but may target  the underlying physical health conditions in many fertility cases.Homeopathic Pharmacology has been widely and successfully tested and established long ago in Public/State Hospitals,like in United States and last decades in the NHS of quite a lot countries,like in Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy in Europe and quite a lot countries in South East America and South East Asia.There is also a most remarkable and growing evidence of its scientific nature according to modern scientific criteria and the relevant literature through academic research is continuously increasing.

Fertility Homeopathic Treatment

-is encouraging physical energy and blood flow to reproductive organs such as fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus

-is reducing stress hormones that interfere with ovulation

-is increasing  the chances of implantation

-is stabilising the hormone balance of the body, which helps the egg to be released

-is evidenced by its long NHS applications and academic research  all over the world 

-is an absolutely safe ,painless, non toxic and non invasive  procedure

- may provide the most indicated Nutrition components in a form that informs the body to assimilate them in the best way from the diet

-may provide the informational pharmacologic aspect of any indicated drug or herb,deprived of any possible toxic or side effect that they may have on the organism

-may offer the indicated counselling through the live interaction with the patient through the homeopathic case taking,which is deprived of any painful analytical interrogations

 

Fertility Homeopathic Treatment programme

Treatment programme involves follow up consultations once every 4-6 weeks for a period of 3-9 months usually. The treatment programme is tailor-made to suit any individual fertility requirements, like AMH and FSH levels,ovarian follicles ultrasound imaging,etc:

  1. for women who want to conceive naturally

Natural pregnancy can occur if a woman is ovulating regularly. Irregular periods makes difficult to determine the timing of ovulation,when the impact on fertility is obvious Secondly, good general and reproductive health are important and these can be also improved. As far as hormones are concerned, both the individual hormones involved as well as their interrelationship and balance are equally important.

When  menstrual cycle is going well, it is highly likely that women are making healthy, high quality eggs. When  menstrual cycle is not going well, it is unlikely to make healthy eggs.

Any other pathologic conditions, like chronic endometritis, endometriosis, PCOS,premature ovarian failure/low AMH levels, chronic endocervicitis, immunological disorders, etc, will be treated with the specific for each individual case homeopathic remedies.Also,any psychosomatic problems related, directly or indirectly,with fertility will be treated accordingly.

 

  1. for women who want to improve their egg quality before Egg freezing or IVF

Where patients would like to combine Homeopathic treatment with IVF, establishment of regular periods will increase the chances of IVF.Medical literature suggests that AMH test and ovarian follicle scan combined will give a reasonable indication for egg quality. If  treatment succeeds to improve AMH and Ovarian Follicle Counts, it is highly likely to impact on egg quality positively. Better egg quality is of course vital for better chances of success with IVF. Antral ovarian follicle counts ,along with age,the case history and certain hormones, are  the best tools for estimating ovarian reserve, the expected response to ovarian stimulating drugs, and the chance for successful pregnancy with in vitro fertilization.

The route of egg freezing may be easier considered, according to individual circumstances,when AMH and FSH values are restored at satisfactory levels.An egg freezing clinic will wish to determine the likely quality of one’s eggs by looking at age, AMH, results from antral follicle scan etc. prior to egg freezing. So,regardless of the procedural protocol, one would wish to freeze the highest quality eggs possible

  1. for women with failed IVF cycles

IVF failure is generally attributed to weakness in the embryo that leads to failed implantation. On average, only about 25% of transferred embryos continue to develop and become live births. The success rate for the implanting of embryos reduces as a women ages.The conventional  approach to get a sperm cell into an egg to develop an embryo and putting it back into the uterus in the hope that it will implant  has proved unsatisfactory.

The basic Homeopathic  working principle is to improve first the quality of the reproductive system . This principle has helped many patients to achieve live births after failed IVF attempts.Homeopathic treatment  targets to get women more prepared before they start another cycle of IVF. Retests of hormones often show lower FSH and higher AMH and, combined with an improved appearance of ovarian follicle count, suggest  a better egg quality.

Upgrading of the quality of both eggs and sperm cells is certainly a main target of Fertility Homeopathic treatment as well as the physiological conditions  at the time and site of embryo implantation  

   d)for women who had recurring miscarriages

Homeopathic treatment  is applied before they become pregnant and may be continued under an individualized proper  timing during pregnancy

e)for women who have PCOS

Homeopathic treatment aims to restore regular periods, hormonal balance and ultrasound ovarian imaging

f)for women who have endometriosis

Homeopathic treatment helps  to arrest and in some cases reverse its development.

g)for women who have hormonal imbalance and irregular periods

Natural pregnancy can occur if a woman is ovulating regularly. Irregular periods makes difficult to determine the timing of ovulation,when the impact on fertility is obvious Secondly, good general and reproductive health are important and these can be also improved. As far as hormones are concerned, both the individual hormones involved as well as their interrelationship and balance are equally important.

When  menstrual cycle is going well, it is highly likely that women are making healthy, high quality eggs. When  menstrual cycle is not going well, it is unlikely to make healthy eggs.

h) for the Partner  with poor sperm count and quality

Homeopathic treatment can help to improve sperm count, sperm motility, sperm morphology or reducing anti-sperm anti-bodies.

 

Common Fertility-related Health Conditions, Disorders and Diseases

a)PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that occurs when a woman’s levels of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone are out of balance leading to the growth of ovarian sacs(cysts) unable to release an egg, which means that ovulation doesn’t take place. So,PCOS can cause serious problems with a women’s menstrual cycle and fertility.

The common signs and symptoms of PCOS are     irregular periods or no period at all(amenorrhea),    difficulty in getting pregnant,excessive hair growth  on the face, chest, back or buttocks, weight gain, thinning hair and hair loss from the head,oily face skin or acne

High AMH and testosterone are often associated with PCOS. PCOS is also related to abnormal hormone levels in the body, including high levels of insulin,the hormone that controls sugar levels in the body. Many women with PCOS are resistant to the action of insulin and produce higher levels of insulin to overcome this. Women with PCOS tend to have high testosterone level.whcih can lead to exhaustion of the granulosa cells of the follicles, compromised egg development and poor egg and embryo quality.PCOS patients are likely to be less successful in either natural pregnancy or IVF treatment as they have poor egg quality

 

b)Miscarriage

A miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy during the first 23 weeks.Miscarriages are related often to hormonal imbalances,like in women with very irregular periods ,who find it harder to conceive and when they do,they are more likely to miscarry.Also immunological and blood-clotting problems in the blood vessels which supply the placenta can often lead to miscarriage.Chronic Infections of the female genital tract may also cause miscarriage quite often.If a miscarriage happens during the second trimester of pregnancy (between weeks 14 and 26), it’s sometimes the result of an underlying health condition in the mother.

Conventional medicine believes that the majority of miscarriages can’t be prevented. The focus is on advising on life style changes in an attempt to reduce chances of future miscarriages. Homeopathic treatment of  recurring miscarriages follows a well-planned route. Since chromosome problems are the leading cause of miscarriage, and half of a developing baby’s chromosomes come from the mother, the other half father, homeopathic treatment focuses in improving egg and sperm quality and limit the relevant autoimmune processes to reduce chances of miscarriages.

 

c)Premature Ovarian Failure

Homeopathic treatment helps the restoration of hormonal imbalance,which is related to premature ovarian failure, especially through the enhancement  of the communication between the brain, the pituitary gland,the thyroid gland ,the adrenal glands  and the ovaries

Premature ovarian failure (POF), also known as premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), or primary ovarian insufficiency is the loss of function of the ovaries before age 40.In POF a woman   does not have periods,    has abnormally high level of FSH and  abnormally low level of Oestrogen.The high level of FSH indicates that the ovaries are no longer responding to circulating FSH by producing oestrogens and developing fertile eggs.When a woman reports lack of period over time, two FSH measurements with one-month interval is  an indicated diagnostic procedure.

Women that have POF may find themselves to have additional health issues like Osteoporosis or decreased bone density,Cardiovascular risks, Arthritis,anxiety and depression.The causes may include Autoimmune diseases, Radiation and/or Chemotherapy, prolonged GnRH (Gonadatrophin Releasing Hormone) therapy, induction of multiple ovulation in infertility

A distinction is always made between ovarian failure which is a result of the natural process of menopause even though it is starting earlier than normal average (aged 51) on the one hand and that caused by severe hormonal imbalance on the other.This distinction is necessary  to adapt accordingly the Fertility Homeopathic treatment.

 

d)Egg Quantity and Quality

For successful pregnancy. natural or through IVF,egg quality is vitally important . Poor egg quality is strongly associated with chromosome abnormalities which in turn impacts on embryo quality, Poor egg quality is the main cause for increased risk for miscarriage and is also the main cause for embryo arrest and  failure of implanting in IVF.Egg quality is therefore a vital factor in determining success in natural pregnancy or IVF.

Egg quantity and quality decline in the mid to late 30s and fall faster in the late thirties and early 40s.However, hormone levels in relation to age and total health of an individual woman  are much more important and determining factors than the age alone.

 Delayed ovulation may not be a problem but early ovulation implies lower quality eggs.A low-quality follicle is less likely to be associated with enough progesterone, and therefore the woman may notice a shorter luteal phase and/or premenstrual spotting.Long cycles may be  acceptable, but short cycles are not. If previously-28-day cycles are now 25 days cucles, it suggests egg quality is failing.In sum, when  hormones are in balance, it is highly likely that the  menstrual cycle will go well and the individual woman will end up with a good quality egg in her cycle. When  hormones are out of balance, the menstrual cycle is likely to be irregular and the individual will  end up with poor quality egg or no egg at all.

To conclude, AMH, FSH and Ovarian Follicle scan combined will give us a reasonable good indication of your egg quality

Poor follicle development and egg quality is related

- to poor general health

-physical energy and blood flow to ovary.As a woman approaches menopause, this flow is around five times less than when she was in her reproductive years

-hormone imbalance. A woman’s hormone levels fluctuate more as she ages, the lack of communication between the brain, the pituitary gland, and the ovaries makes the follicles resistant to FSH

Eggs  respond to the their surroundings just as the rest of our bodily systems do. Ovaries and eggs respond negatively to poor diet, drugs, toxins and stress hormones and positively to a health diet and lifestyleWomen can be helped  by Fertility Homeopathic treatment to improve their general health, their physical energy flow to pelvis and specifically to ovaries and uterus and to improve the balance of hormones, follicle development and egg quality

 

e)Perimenopause

Perimenopause begins some years before menopause. It’s the time when the ovaries gradually begin to make less oestrogen. It usually starts in a woman’s 40s, but can start in her 30s or even earlier. Perimenopause lasts up until menopause, the point when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. In the last one to two years of perimenopause, this drop in oestrogen speeds up. At this stage, many women have menopause symptoms.

The diagnosis of perimenopause is often based only on symptoms,like hot flashes,breast tenderness,lower sex drive,fatigue,irregular periods,vaginal dryness,discomfort during sex,easy urine leakage,urgent need to urinate more frequently,mood swings,trouble sleeping .Some simple blood tests to check hormone levels may also help.Irregular periods are common and normal during perimenopause.The average length of perimenopause is 4 years, but for some women this stage may last only a few months or continue for many years. Perimenopause is considered to be ended when a woman has gone 12 months without having period

A perimenopausal woman may get pregnant,even with difficulty. In the perimenopausal period, there are still thousands of eggs remaining in the ovaries.The ovaries at this stage are still well endowed with follicles while important endocrinal changes are taking place. What makes  eggs less normal and responsive is not age per se but the hormonal fluctuations.The hypothalamus controls levels of GnRH, which in turn triggers the pituitary to release FSH, which in turn stimulates our ovaries to develop the follicles, ripen the eggs, release the eggs, produce progesterone and so on. As we approach middle age, the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Ovarian axis, the basic network of hormonal relationships governing reproductive status has now become less stable. As a result, the ovaries  become less stable and predictable. The eggs contained within them gradually cease to respond to FSH as well as before.The Fertility Homeopathic Treatment may be orientated to restore the balance of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Ovarian axis

 

The critical Timing of Fertility Homeopathic Treatment

Conventional therapies tend to think of egg quality as part of an irreversible ageing process which means that egg quality will be in decline and cannot be improved. IVF process focuses only on the last few weeks of the egg’s journey from initial follicle to the egg being released. For an egg to grow from a follicle in resting state into a fully developed egg ready to be released takes up to a full year. In particular, follicles are selected form the pool of resting follicles almost a year before ovulation. About 5 months before ovulation, a follicle is chosen from the pool to become a primary follicle. Approximately 120 days before ovulation, it reaches its secondary stage. In approximately 65 days before ovulation, the follicle then cycles through the pre-antral and antral phase. During this conventionally ignored time, in which a follicle is developing its residing egg and is  preparing to be healthy and responsive, homeopathic treatment may commence its action for a far more effective plan for restoring fertility.

.

Partner’s Sperm parameters to be improved

These are :

sperm count, sperm motility, morphology,anti-sperm anti-bodies, low libido, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation

The main fertility issues men face are low sperm count, low sperm motility, poor sperm morphology and anti-sperm anti-bodies.It is worth noting that while there may be conventional treatments for poor sperm count where the causes are known and can be corrected by surgery and hormone therapy, where the causes of low sperm count, poor motility and morphology are not found  by lab tests, conventional  treatments may not be sufficient. Fertility Homeopathic Treatment may often and essentially improve the above parameters.

 

 

 

HOMEOPATHY employs and applies all the Tradional Homeopathic knowledge, all the extent of Homeopathic Pharmacology ,Research and Clinical Applications  from the principles of Hippocrates and Hahnemann to modern Clinical conceptions .
