Dr. Sayed, May be there a prevalence of PID like conditions due to some unhygenic conditions, may be due to sorry but local cutoms....if any.

That is weird that my comment disappeared. Well, I'm wondering what I said? A commentary about the linked article on Calcium Carbonate and PMS. The fact that in homeopathy we use Calcium carb listed as number THREE in your list. And, I would like for someone to itemize the list of symptoms as reported in the article and compare with symptoms here. That Magnesium carb which is number TEN on your list combines the much needed Magnesium with the component of Calcium, as reported in the study. We're had this information for centuries as important elements to help a woman through cramps and emotional ups and down of menstruation. Then, we also have the popular Magnesium Phos for cramps better for warmth and heat. I hope that is everything.

Thanks Dr. Sayed.
Comment by Dr Rajneesh Kumar Sharma MD(Hom) on November 9, 2010 at 4:08am
I agree with You Debby... Magnesium, Calcium, carbon and some more drugs are frequently indicated in PMS. We need to study more painfully in this regards. Accidentally, your comment has been disappeared from here, but I remember that. The particulars have little value only. In evaluation of personality and making Totality, Mentals and generals are of prime importance. We should consider the particulars only when mentals and generals are deficient or absent. We can use particulars for palliation or in acute conditions, but very carefully. If a constitutional remedy also covers particulars, the miracle is sure........

Dear Dr. Dasgupta,
Thanks. I shall publish that very soon.
Comment by Dr. Prabhat Kumar Dasgupta on November 4, 2010 at 10:58am
Dear Dr Rajneesh,
If possible provide a case history of PMS you treated ,along with the methodology.
Known etiology may definatly help to find out the basic miasm ...
