Perineal re-education

Perineal re-education with homoeopathy

In human anatomy, the perineum is the set of muscles located in the outlet of the pelvis and that includes the genitals and the anus. The relaxation of the perineum, which is quite common after childbirth, requires appropriate care in order to avoid complications. Note that this relaxation can occur at any time of life, affecting both children and adults, although women are particularly exposed to this condition. In all cases, it is useful to proceed to perineal re-education.

Symptoms indicating the need for perineal re-education

After childbirth, it is essential to proceed to a re-education of the pelvic floor muscles, especially if the baby weighs over 3.7 kg and if the diameter of its skull is greater than 35.5 cm. Indeed, these factors can result in trauma and cause lesions to the pelvic floor muscles. When these muscles relax, three types of incontinence can occur, the most common of which is urinary incontinence, that is to say small leaks after sneezing, laughter, jumping or physical exertion. Frequent urination is another form of incontinence and mostly occurs at night. These are major symptoms that must be addressed and the re-education of the affected muscles must be undertaken without delay.

Recommended treatments

To strengthen the supporting tissue in the perineal area, it is advisable to take daily 5-granule doses of Calcarea fluorica 5 CH over a 3-month period. To treat urinary incontinence caused by the relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles, take 5 granules of Causticum 15 CH until improvement is noticed. This dosage can also be replaced by a single dose of the same remedy, to be taken 3 times a week. If incontinence mainly occurs during the first sleep, take 5 granules of Sepia 5 CH twice a day, in addition to which a 15-CH dose may also be taken once a week.

When should you consult a doctor?

If the patient’ condition remains unchanged after the administration of the indicated remedies, it is imperative to seek medical attention since this would be an indication that the pelvic floor muscles are still relaxed. Indeed, it is best to consult a gynaecologist as early as possible and in case of severe complications, consultation with a urologist becomes mandatory.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
