Pain in the hips radiating down into the lower limbs is a common symptom of dysmenorrhoea


Freedom to woman would be freedom to the country, Mahatma Gandhi had opined and it is all true today. Last Monday of May was dedicated to the Health of women and this article also salutes the same.

Every woman on the planet is still troubled by the niggles and one of them is the painful periods or dysmenorrhoea which pegs pack her day-to-day life during the periods, diminishing her energy and productivity too. Some amount of pain or discomfort during the phase is supposed to be “normal” but only if the pain sort of pulls down a woman and inhibits her daily routine for a day or two every month then it needs to be addressed.
The ovaries which release the eggs or the ovum, the oestrogen, which have built up the inner all of the uterus or the endometrium as a preparation for conception, starts shedding down with the help of another hormone called progesterone. This is done by muscular contractions of the walls of the uterus to expel the endometrial layer. During the contraction there is a lack of oxygen in the middle of the muscular layer of the uterus, so as to prevent further loss of too much of blood during the cycle. This is further exacerbated when the prostaglandins cause further contraction and thereby pain ensues.

Cramping lower abdominal pain and sometimes pain in the hips radiating down into the lower limbs are the common symptoms of dysmenorrhoea. Nausea and vomiting are common too and diarrhoea is seen to be associated with the pain. Pain could start a day or two before the menses and could be at its peak when the bleeding is also high but usually comes down after the second day of the menstrual bleeding. Headache further could pull down the young woman in concentrating at her work. Missing school, office or a sporting event during this phase happen often.

Needless to say a little exercise, regularly would go a long way in correcting dysmenorrhoea. Walking, cycling, swimming are the common and helpful ways. Homoeopathic medicine has good remedies to correct this condition by relieving the pain discomfort, nausea, vomiting, headache etc. Over a period of time the pain during periods would come down in intensity with medication with every subsequent month. When the period is upset by nausea, vomiting, Apocyanum is the usual remedy to c orrect it. Cimcifuga helps by getting rid of the headache and irritability common during that point of time apart from the muscular pain of the lower limbs. Mag phos is probably the best to relieve the abdominal pain in young girls. Viburnum opulus is for the cramping pain and Senecio helps if anaemia is associated with this situation. All in all, homoeopathic medicine helps the young woman not to let her guard down and have a c heerful day, any day of the month.

Nasal polyps

I suffer from frequent colds which was supposed to be due to nasal polyps and was operated upon two years ago. It has recurred now. Even in summer I have been suffering with this nasal discharge and blocking. Investigations revealed polyps again. Can homoeopathy help?

Scalp Psoriasis

I am 18 years old and developed scaling of the scalp two years ago which was supposed to be due to dandruff but then it flared up to most of the areas of the scalp with itching and burning. Since six months I also have pain in the fingers a nd toes which is supposed to be due to Psoriatic arthritis. I am under treatment but there is no respite in either the scaling of the scalp or the joint pains. Can homoeopathy help?

Psoriasis can cause dryness and scaling of the skin including that of the scalp and Psoriasis as such can also lead to a type of arthritis if it persists in an individual over a period of time. Homoeopathic medicine has good remedies to see that the disease goes into remission or an inactive phase by helping you symptomatically relieved of the itching of the scalp and pain in the joints to start with.


I am a 47-year-old woman and underwent a master health check-up recently. The only report which is not normal is Cervicitis detected after a Pap smear. It also shows no abnormal cells. Does homoeopathy have a remedy?

Once the lab investigations have ruled out any “abnormal cells” there is nothing much to be worried about but for the inflammation of the cervix with infection which is not uncommon and can be treated with homoeopathic Medicine. Caladium, Ac.nit, Borax are a few remedies which would help such a cause.


I am 39-year-old and cholesterol level is 239mg/dl. I do not have any problem as such as all other tests are normal too. Does it warrant medication?


High levels of lipids like cholesterol and triglycerides tend to percolate to the walls of the blood vessels and over a period of time cause clogging and the chances of a heart attack increase and thereby it is pertinent that these levels are always under normal limits. Though the level you have is just above normal and not a cause for concern with a proper diet and exercise it can be curtailed and a three month schedule would reveal it. But after the period if it remains the same you need to look for medical help too.
