Uterine fibroid cases are not uncommon in our country. It is one of the distressing problems for ladies during their reproductive years. These patients are anxious, fearful and in most of cases, they try to avoid surgery. Here Homoeopathy plays an important role not only removing the symptoms but also reducing the uterine pathology.
We shall discuss in this article organopathic remedy approach to Uterine fibroids and some experiences from eminent physicians. It is important when there is paucity of symptoms in the cases or constitutional (symptomatic) medicines are not acting or the condition of the patient is serious or the disease is in a incurable stage.
