Abstract

AN EVIDENCE BASED CASE REPORT OF NEPHROLITHIASIS TREATED WITH HOMOEOPATHY

Dr. Jagdish Thebar* and Dr. Preeti Srivastav

.

Abstract

Nephrolithiasis is a crystal concretion formed usually within the kidneys. It is an increasing urological disorder of human health, affecting about 12% of the world population. It has been associated with an increased risk of end-stage renal failure. The etiology of kidney stone is multifactorial. The most common type of kidney stone is calcium oxalate formed at Randall's plaque on the renal papillary surfaces. The mechanism of stone formation is a complex process which results from several physicochemical events including supersaturation, nucleation, growth, aggregation and retention of urinary stone constituents within tubular cells. These steps are modulated by an imbalance between factors that promote or inhibit urinary crystallization. It is also noted that cellular injury promotes retention of particles on renal papillary surfaces. Whereas homoeopathic literature has mentioned many remedies for nephrolithiasis, still there is paucity of evidence-based studies. Case summary- The patient was treated with homoeopathic medicines – Berberis vulgaris Q. Follow-up imaging at 2 months showed complete resolution of the nephrolithiasis. This case report highlights the importance of homoeopathic mother tincture prescription as a promising complementary or alternative therapy.

Keywords: Homoeopathy, Berberis Vulgaris, Nephrolithiasis.
