Abstract

TO EVALUATE THE USEFULLNESS OF INDIVIDUALISED HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES VIS-AVIS PREIDENTIFIED MEDICINES IN MANAGEMENT OF UROLITHIASIS.

Dr. Smrity Bhatia*, Dr. Shrimohan Sharma

ABSTRACT

Background: A vast population is affected by Urolithiasis with the prevalence, incidence and recurrence rate is reported to be increasing across the world. Homoeopathy serves as an alternative medicine in management of Urolithiasis. Methods: 105 cases of Urolithiasis were randomly allocated to the three treatment groups. In Group A Individualised Homoeopathic Medicines (n=35 cases) was selected on the basis of the totality of the symptoms; in Group B Epigea repens (n=35 cases); and in Group C Uva ursi was selected on the basis of symptom similarity (Two particular symptoms). Assessment and reassessment was done using scale adapted from Urolithiasis Symptom Score Index (USSI) and Ultrasonography was used to assess the improvement in the study after 3 months. Results: After comparing pre and post treatment scores, a one-way between subjects ANOVA was conducted to compare the effect of different intervention on Urolithiasis. There was a significant difference among Groups as determined by one-way ANOVA [F (2, 94), = 9.236, P = 0.00], Post hoc comparisons using the LSD test indicated that the mean score for the Group A- Individualised Homoeopathic Medicine (M= 4.75, SD = 3.43, t = 15.07) was significantly different From the Group B –Epigea repens (M = 7.71, SD = 3.39, t = 5.17), as P = 0.000 and from Group CUva ursi (M = 7.59, SD = 2.52, t = 5.78) as P= 0.000. However, there was no significant difference between mean score of Group B & Group C but was significantly different from Group A as this group was highly significant, as P = 0.00. Conclusion: This study proved that Individualised Homoeopathic Medicine appear to be significantly effective in the treatment of Urolithiasis as compare to Epigea repens & Uva ursi and statistically there is no significant difference in results of Epigea repens & Uva ursi.

Keywords: Urolithiasis, Epigea repens & Uva ursi, Individualised, Homoeopathy.
