Berberis vulgaris

Berberis vulgaris: an effective remedy for treating numerous pathological disorders

Berberis vulgaris is a homoeopathic remedy made ??from European barberry, a shrub that belongs to the Berberidaceae family and bears red ovoid berries. The shrub’s dried roots and bark are used to obtain the mother tincture containing the plant’s active ingredients. After a series of physical and chemical extractions, the mother tincture undergoes numerous dilutions according to the usual preparation procedure of homoeopathic remedies. Thanks to its different therapeutic properties, Berberis vulgaris can be used to cure many diseases. The remedy comes in a variety of forms, although it is mostly found in the form of granules, triturations and drops.

Indications in urology

Berberis vulgaris is a drug that is especially used to treat kidney stones or urinary lithiasis in men and women. This condition is usually accompanied by pain in the lower back, that manifest themselves by boiling and burning sensations. The patient may also experience a bruising sensation around the left kidney. In addition, the appearance and quantity of urine may change often. Sometimes, the urine may be orange, or even reddish, demonstrating the presence of kidney stones. When the pain radiates to the testicles, men suffer from a loss of libido and, most of the time, premature ejaculation as well.

Indications in hepato-gastroenterology

Berberis vulgaris is widely used to treat liver problems. Furthermore, the patient may also have digesting difficulties to digest, constant nausea, thick saliva and be subject to drowsiness after eating. In addition, diarrhoea and constipation may occur from time to time. These symptoms require a Berberis-vulgaris-based treatment. As for women, urological disorders may also affect the vulva, resulting in pain during orgasms.

Indications in rheumatology

Berberis vulgaris is a remedy that is particularly indicated for use in rheumatology. Generally, the drug is designed to treat all types of rheumatisms and all kinds of joint pain, especially if they are accompanied by urinary tract inflammations. In fact, the remedy is intended for metabolism disorders, knowing that an overproduction of urea in the body is often the source of rheumatism. These disorders can provoke irradiating pain, resulting from hepatic colic, urinary and biliary inflammations, as well as the formation of stones in the bile and kidneys.

Indications in dermatology

In dermatology, Berberis vulgaris is recommended for the treatment of circinate dermatoses or, to be more specific, ring or arc-shaped skin inflammations. It is also recommended in case of Pityriasis rosea. Often, these symptoms are accompanied by  itching. When these signs appear, it is necessary to undergo a Berberis-vulgaris-based treatment.

Recommended dosage in case of urological disorders and rheumatism

If you choose to take capsules, take Berberis vulgaris 5 CH. The required dose is 5 capsules in the morning and the evening. To treat rheumatism, 5 capsules of Berberis vulgaris should be taken in the morning and evening. Treatment should continue until the patient’s condition improves.

Recommended dosage in case of hepato-gastroenterological disorders

To treat hepato-gastroenterological disorders, the required dose is 20 drops of Berberis vulgaris 6 DH, to be diluted in a glass of water. The remedy needs to be taken in the morning and evening right before meals. For increased efficiency, it is recommended to keep the solution in the mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Depending on the severity of the disease, the treatment can last up to 3 months. However, once the patient’s condition improves, the dosage can be reduced before completely discontinuing the treatment. To treat hepato-vesicular disorders, Berberis vulgaris should be used in combination with other remedies.

Recommended dosage in cases of dermatological disorders

To treat skin inflammations, one can take Berberis vulgaris granules or drops. For granules, the recommended dosage is a daily 10-granule intake, 5 of which should be administered in the morning, and the remaining 5 in the evening. Regarding drops, it is recommended to dilute 20 drops of Berberis vulgaris 6 DH in a bit of water.

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.
