Creating Waves of Awareness
Nux vomica female are rare - but they are there!!
This article deals with an evidence based case study of 20 years girl suffering from PCOD. She has been benefited when the homeopathic remedy prescribed on the base of constitution and miasmatic background after a very careful case taking, analysis and repertorization.
According to scientists, women really are ruled by their hormones and are more responsive to stress hormone than men and hence are more sensitive to external as well internal impressions. Women have higher rates of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and other anxiety problems. This sensitivity and hormonal changes in female body making the woman constitution delicate. There are many disorders that may impact the ability for a woman to ovulate normally. The most common disorders impacting ovulation include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This disease is very common in the girls between the ages of 14-16 years.
The associated symptoms are
Weight gain, pimples, hair growth on face and irregular menses.
PCOS is one of the major cause of infertility. It causes hormonal imbalance in female and hence the level of male hormone increases in the female body.
Ovulation gets disturbed which causes irregular menses, scanty or profuse flow and infertility.
Let us discuss a case first…
A 20 yrs girl visited me in November 2017 for PCOS.
She had profuse, long lasting painful menses with frequent contractions in uterus. Sometimes menses appear only in 15-16 days. She suffered vaginal discharge for long period after menses.
Her mother told – ‘She does not like to mix or talk with everyone. She spends her time more with her laptop, playing games or watching movie and making her room; she cannot rest till she won’t keep things at proper place. Nobody can touch her belongings without her permission. She is self willed. Cannot endure the slightest contradiction.
She wakes late in the morning and then sits up in the toilet for long time. She has unsatisfied stool and sometimes has to go 2-3 times in morning.
She can not adjust at relative’s place as she wants every thing as per her comfort. She loves branded clothes, perfumes and watches. She gets offended easily. She blames others easily but never accept her mistake. She can not say sorry.
She loves perfectly prepared food with very tempting smell.
She suffers cold frequently; she is sensitive to cold weather.’
Considered rubrics were....
Nux Vomica 200 one aqua dose prescribed at 5th November 2017 as per her present symptomatology followed by sac lac for 30 days.
Comments on selection of remedy
In this case Nux vom was not selected just because it stood first in repertorization chart!! The base of selection was her behaviour as well the complaint of leucorrhoea for long time after menses.
Here we considered all mental and physical totality...and hence Nux Vomica became her constitutional remedy.
Usually PCOD falls under sycotic miasm; but may differ as per individual diathesis. Nux Vomica is a multimiasmatic remedy; covering all miasms.
This is the result in just 5 months with Homeopathic treatment!!
About Nux Vomica still there is a myth that it is just a male remedy same as about Pulsatilla and sepia; that they are only female remedies!!
We must think out of the box now...Every remedy in Homeopathy especially polychrest remedies almost cover all the genders as they have impact on all organs of the body including Mind.
Nux women are rare, but they do exist. Most Nux Ladies become careerists, and excel in their chosen field . The Nux woman is decidedly more masculine than most, and has little time for frivolities like gossiping and reading women's magazines. Like the Nux man, she is usually very concerned with establishing her power-base.
Those Nux women who do not have a career often become bitter and frustrated, and turn their attention to manipulating whatever power they can from their associates and family.
Nux people of both sexes are born to lead, and do not do well when they are denied the chance.
The Nux woman may become angry when criticized, but her anger is not mixed with fear, and like her male counterpart, she will either ignore her opponent, or crush him.
Nux Women has extreme calm determination!!
The above case has broke the myth and proved the efficacy of a very well known male remedy in female disorder!
Every patient is a new patient...so constitutional remedy is the better choice in an individual case. While remedy selection the physician’s mind must be unprejudiced!
Any remedy covering the totality of symptoms thoroughly can be prescribed!
It is said that - A homeopath must know his patient physically, mentally, emotionally, functionally, spiritually as well socially!! When all the dimensions of patient is covered with the upcoming remedy the Homeopathic management of any disorder is favourable!!
