Uterine Fibroid – Heavy Menstrual bleeding and emergency Management using Advanced Homoeopathy
Patient: Mrs. WD, Female, 47 years, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Comment: Many patients come to us after being told that there is no permanent solution to Uterine Fibroids in state of the art conventional medicine. At that point they have already started experiencing emergency conditions like heavy bleeding.
Advanced Homeopathy has the medicines to deal with such conditions more effectively and swiftly than conventional medicines in almost all cases.
Here is an example of one such case where bleeding that was ''flowing like a tap'' stopped completely within 2 hours. Her subsequent menstrual periods we nothing like that and she could avoid surgery/hysterectomy and never had to take any conventional medicines like kanker causing hormone replacement therapies.
Copied here are a few interactions with our Global Telemedicine Centres which responded to the emergency request for help:
23rd June 08 – Email from patient seeking Advanced Homoeopathic treatment for Uterine Fibroid and related emergency management
I had been to the allopathic doctor on Thursday to check about my constant bleeding and she did a sonography and advised me that I have a tiny fibroid in my uterus, which is causing the heavy bleeding. She gave some medicines (for 10 days) to control the bleeding, which has now stopped. She said that I will need to go for check ups every three months and if the fibroid does not cause further problems, leave it like that; otherwise, I need to remove my uterus or induce menopause.
I would like your advice on the following :
· Can the fibroid be treated with homeopathy, without having to remove the uterus?
03rd July 2008, Email Update from Patient:
Many thanks for your detailed email with the instructions. The medicines which were detained at the Customs, have just got cleared and they will be delivered to me on Saturday morning.
My periods which were controlled / stopped by the allopathic doctor through the 10 days course, have now started again from yesterday evening i.e. after 15 days only. The menstrual flow is not as heavy as last time, but it could get bad by tomorrow, as it did when I got it 15 days.
I look forward to receiving your advice and direction.
Date : 03rd July 2008, Consultation Notes --Dr. Parameh Banerji :
This is in reference to your email received about 8 minutes ago.
1. I would advise you to start the medicine Inflo 40 (Number 71) or Fludblid 40 (Number 143)
depending on whether the flow is clotted or free flowing respectively.
Date : 03rd July 2008, Email Update from Patient
Thank you Doctor for your prompt response. I will start taking Fludblid as the flow is free flowing and keep updating you on how I feel and progress.
4th July 08 -Teleconsult with Pt -PB
There were two teleconsults with Mrs. WD today.
When she first contacted us her periods were very very very heavy - according to her ''flowing like a tap'' - overflowing to wet the bed even.
She had already used Fludblid but no appreciable reduction in flow.
Suggested use of Inflo 40 - three doses at intervals of 30 minutes followed by a dose of Bejinj 40.
She reported back after 2 hrs as suggested by us - that her flow had stopped completely after starting the medicines.
Thereafter she had a few spottings but overall the flow was 98% less now.
She is supposed to receive the new set of medicines tomorrow.
In future she can also use Hemorin if the flow is not addressed by Inflo or fludblid.
Date : 05th July 2008, Email Update from Patient:
Many thanks for your telecon advice / our conversations yesterday and I am indeed feeling better. My period flow was quite little last night and this morning it is scant. I have also received the medicine package.

A symptom that just appeared 2 days ago is a lump the size of an almond on my right breast. It was initially sore the 1st day I found it, but is not sore now. I have a family history of kanker. My grandmother had breast kanker and arthritis and died when she was 54. My mother had leukemia and died when she was 57.
Date : 26th November 2008, Email Update from Patient --(DB)
II am feeling very thankful and please with our work together. I'd like to give you an update on my health and ask a few questions.
I began my medicines on Saturday, November 8th.
Date: 13th December 2008, Email Update from Patient – (SD)
I wanted to give you an update on my progress.
Overall, I am feeling much, much better. I now have a daily "stability" that I have not had for a couple of years. The Ahmed is helping tremendously with the migraine and sinus pain, which makes a big difference.
I have a friend visiting me here in India who is an OB/GYN doctor from the USA with over 30 years experience. She checked both of my breasts thoroughly and could not find anything at all. I could not feel the lump any longer myself, but I wanted to get a doctor's opinion before I reported that to you.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have connected with you. Even in these few weeks, we have made good progress. Most importantly, I feel a level of support that I have not felt previously with homeopathy and I think that is most important.

Patient: Mr. JB, Male, years, SINGAPORE
We feel Renal Failure is as serious a disease as kanker. The disease normally worsens unilaterally as there are absolutely no treatment for the same in conventional medicine. As soon as the Serum Urea and Serum Creatinine levels reach a certain range Maintenance Hemodialysis is started which in almost all cases reaches twice or even sometime thrice a week in frequency. Thereafter, the extremely dangerous procedure of Kidney transplant remains as the only option.
Those who opt for our Advanced Homoeopathic treatment immediately after detection without using any conventional medicines do not need to go for any of the conventional management options and are able to lead a normal life.
Two cases are being cited here – one very early stage detection and another very late stage detection. Both these patients started our Advanced Homoeopathic treatment and they are living a normal life without having to opt for dialysis or any form of conventional treatment.
Renal Failure - Early Stage treatment using Advanced Homeopathy
Patient: Mr. AG, Male, 58 years, Mumbai, INDIA
During the period of our Advanced Homoeopathic treatment for the disease Hypothyroidism, several patients' reports indicate that the thyroid gland became functional. (This is in contrast to conventional "state of the art" medicine which is designed to solely palliatively manage, masking the root cause, through hormone replacement therapy – a treatment which has its known side-effects. Being palliative means that other treatments such as hormone therapy is a treatment for life.
Two cases are being cited here. Both seem much improved with the second remarkably so.
Patient: Master KN, Male, 2 years 7 months, Rourkela, Orissa, INDIA
He was suggested life long treatment using a thyroid hormone replacement (a popular brand Eltr*xin). We stopped this medicine when we started our Advanced Homoeopathy. As can be seen from the chart below he is now no longer requiring any medication at all, all within 3 months period, as his thyroid gland is able to produce the required hormones.
This patient have been using Levothyroxine (similar to Eltroxin, Synthyroid, etc.) for over 25 years.
We stopped this medicine immediately on start of our Advanced Homoeopathic treatment.
She has also been suffering from other diseases like Psoriatic Arthritis which is also improving very
well and being covered elsewhere in the document.
Comment from Dr. Paramesh Banerji: As can be seen from the following chart her Thyroid function
kept on improving with our treatment. This not the palliative management using supplement – but a real curative treatment where we render the Thyroid gland functional.

After starting our Advanced Homoeopathic Treatment her Thyroid Function Continues to improve

30th April 2009, Mrs. AS, New York, USA
Thank you but i would have to disagree with your estimation of your medicines. you may not think that three little pellets once a day that gives you peace of mind and takes away frightening symptoms as a mirac1e, but i have to tell you that, it is to me. especially since i work with an internal medicine doctor who has nothing to give but pills and surgery and no solution. my mother B said you give us hope and i would have to agree.
your work is very much appreciated,
I would like to inform you that there is a lot of improvement observed in my health conditions after having your medicines. The following medicines are over and would like to request you to arrange for the shipment of the same on Bhagalpur address.
