It is estimated that over 70 million women worldwide are suffering from Endometriosis, one of the most misunderstood diseases among the health professionals of today. Endometriosis is more common as breast cancer and other well known diseases, but despite the vast numbers of women suffering from this disease - very few have actually heard about it.

Endometriosis are small deposits of the womb lining that are located outside of the womb cavity. The most common place to find it is on the ovary, the back of the uterus and the ligamentous supports that hold the uterus in its normal position. Endometriosis can also be found on the thin lining of the pelvic organs (the peritoneum), on the tubes, between the vagina and rectum, in or on the bladder, in abdominal scars from previous surgery and even as far away from the pelvis as the lung.. Each time you have a normal period, it can lead to cyclical swelling, stretching of tissues, inflammation and scarring. Eventually all the scarring and inflammation can lead to symptoms even when you're not having a period. (Womens Health)

One of the most common symptoms of Endometriosis is pelvic pain. The symptoms align with the menstrual cycle, which in turn are getting more and more painful as time passes. The symptoms are difficult to discover as they tend to mimic those of other health problems, such as: ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, irritable bowel syndrome, ovarian cancer, fibroid tumors, colon cancer and appendicitis.

The most common symptoms of Endometriosis include:

* Pain before/during periods.

* Pain with intercourse

* Chronic pelvic pain throughout the month

* Low back pain

* Heavy and/or irregular periods

* Painful bowel movements, especially during menstruation

* Painful urination during menstruation

* Fatigue

* Infertility

* Diarrhoea or constipation

The result of suffering Endometriosis is a gradual decline in a womans general health.

Although there are many questions which still remains to be answered as to the reason of the cause of endometriosis, we see that it often runs in families and that the risk increases after the age of 30. There are several theories trying to explain the cause of Endometriosis, but fortunately the professional Homeopath do not need a cause or a diagnosis for being able to offer a person effective treatment.


There are many reasons why epilepsy may occur, and the development of the symptoms also vary widely. The main symptoms include seizures (with or without aura), loss of consciousness, clonic movements, difficulties in voluntary movements, paresthesias such as burning, tingling, or numbness and visual hallucinations.

Homeopathy have long traditions in treating epilepsy, and homeopathic medicine is known to have good effect in reducing the number and/or intensity of the attacks, and even removing them completely in some cases.

Kali muriaticum is one of the main homeopathic remedy in treating epilepsy, especially when it occurs in connection to suppression of eruptions. "Kali muriaticum is one of the tissue remedies too easily overlooked. Its delicate affinity for the nerve centres makes it a slow acting remedy. In as much as the physician too frequently seeks palliation in epilepsy, it is not generally employed long enough. Without doubt it preserves the fibrin factor and prevents a tissue metamorphosis. This, he believes, should be the therapeutic aim in treating this disease. It is simple enough to relieve a fit, for it is in itself self-limiting. The real object is to overcome the morbid degeneration. The protoplasmic fibres are surely strengthened by Kali mur., and such a condition tends to preserve the brain integrity. When the brain-cells are properly nourished, they can withstand the irritation of the sensory fibrillar which surround them. This being done, we have made the first advance toward the removal of the cause of the disease.." (The Clinique, June IS, 1897).

Another important remedy which is used in the treatment is Natrium Sulphuricum. This homeopathic remedy is specific to the epilepsy that occurs after a head injury (posttraumatic epilepsy).

Other remedies valuable in the treatment of epilepsy include: Kali phos. (coldness and palpitation after the fit), Magn.phos. (fits result of vicious habits), Ferrum phos. (fits with rush of blood to the head) and Silicea (fits during the night, cold before attack).
