Homoeopathic approach to pernicious anaemia: A review
Author(s): Dr. Sneha B Bevinamarad
Abstract: In the recent years considerable increase in the number of cases of pernicious anaemia has been recorded and the prevalence increases with the age esp. over the age of 60 years. It is one of the auto immune condition which is treated by parenteral administration of vitamin B12 intramuscularly or through oral route. But this is not the curative treatment as the patients will have to continue with similar treatment throughout the life.
As homoeopathic medicines treat the individual and not the condition or diseases, they help body in establishing the normal secretion of intrinsic factor and hence correct the deficiency.
Skilful selection of the rubrics from various Repertories, suitable for such conditions play an important role in prescribing medicines to get the best result.
The aim of studying this topic is to review the literature of the condition from Homoeopathic point of view.
