You may like to read the information below on Uterine Prolapse which I have copied from the Mayo Clinic documents on the web.

You will note that reference is made to a special device known as a Pessary which your gynaecologist can insert to support the womb. You are advised to discuss this matter with your doctors. It is possible that the combination of the Homeopathic remedy and the Pessary may help your condition and enable you to avoid surgery.

Uterine prolapse
Introduction

Uterine prolapse means your uterus has dropped from its position within the pelvis into your vagina. Normally, your uterus is held in place by the muscles and ligaments that make up your pelvic floor. Uterine prolapse results when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments weaken, providing inadequate support for the uterus. The uterus then descends into the vaginal canal.

Uterine prolapse most often affects postmenopausal women who've had one or more vaginal deliveries. Damage to supportive tissues incurred during pregnancy and childbirth plus the effects of gravity, loss of estrogen and repeated straining over the years can weaken pelvic floor muscles and lead to prolapse.

If you experience only mild uterine prolapse, treatment usually isn't needed. But if you experience discomfort or interruption of your lifestyle as a result of uterine prolapse, you might benefit from surgery to repair the prolapse, or you may elect to use a special supportive device (pessary), which is inserted into your vagina.

Signs and symptoms

Uterine prolapse varies in severity. You may have mild uterine prolapse and experience no signs or symptoms. Or you could have moderate to severe uterine prolapse. If that's the case, you may experience the following:

* Sensation of heaviness or pulling in your pelvis
* Pain during intercourse
* Something protruding from your vagina
* Low back pain

Some women who have uterine prolapse describe feeling as if they're sitting on a small ball or as if something is falling out of their vagina. Symptoms tend to be less bothersome in the morning — after a long period of lying down — and worsen as the day goes on.
Causes

Pregnancy and trauma incurred during childbirth, particularly with large babies or after a difficult labor and delivery, are the main causes of muscle weakness leading to uterine prolapse. Loss of muscle tone associated with aging and reduced amounts of circulating estrogen after menopause also may contribute to uterine prolapse. In rare circumstances, uterine prolapse may be caused by a tumor in the pelvic cavity.

Genetics also may play a role. Women of Northern European descent have a higher incidence of uterine prolapse than do women of Asian and African descent.
Risk factors

Certain factors may increase your risk of uterine prolapse:

* One or more pregnancies and vaginal births
* Giving birth to a large baby
* Increasing age
* Frequent heavy lifting
* Chronic coughing
* Frequent straining during bowel movements

Some conditions, such as obesity, chronic constipation and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), can place a strain on the muscles and connective tissue in your pelvis and may play a role in the development of uterine prolapse.
When to seek medical advice

If you develop any signs and symptoms of uterine prolapse — such as a feeling of fullness in your vagina or pain during intercourse — or if you also are experiencing difficulties urinating or having bowel movements, seek medical attention.
Screening and diagnosis

Diagnosing uterine prolapse requires a pelvic examination. You may be referred to a doctor who specializes in conditions affecting the female reproductive tract (gynecologist). The doctor will ask about your medical history, including how many pregnancies and vaginal deliveries you've had. He or she will perform a complete pelvic examination to check for signs of uterine prolapse. You may be examined while lying down and also while standing. Sometimes imaging tests, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), might be performed to further evaluate the uterine prolapse.
Complications

In severe cases of uterine prolapse, you may develop sores (ulcers) in your vagina where the fallen uterus rubs against your skin and the thin skin lining your vaginal walls is exposed outside of your body. In rare cases, infection is a possibility.

Also associated with uterine prolapse is prolapse of other pelvic organs, including your bladder and rectum. A prolapsed bladder bulges into the front part of your vagina, causing a cystocele that can lead to difficulty in urinating and increased risk of urinary tract infections. A prolapsed rectum causes a rectocele, which often leads to uncomfortable constipation and possibly hemorrhoids.
Treatment

Losing weight, stopping smoking and getting proper treatment for contributing medical problems, such as lung disease, may slow the progression of uterine prolapse.

If you have very mild uterine prolapse, either without symptoms or with symptoms that aren't terribly bothersome, no treatment is necessary. However, you may continue to lose uterine support, which could require future treatment.

Possible treatments for uterine prolapse include:

* Lifestyle changes. If you're overweight or obese, your doctor may suggest ways to achieve a healthy weight and maintain that weight. Exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles (Kegel exercises) may help. Your doctor may advise you to avoid heavy lifting or straining.
*

Vaginal pessary. A vaginal pessary fits inside the vagina and is designed to hold the uterus in place. The pessary can be a temporary or permanent form of treatment. The device comes in many shapes and sizes, so your doctor will measure and fit you for the device. Once the pessary is in place, your doctor may have you walk, sit, squat and bear down to make sure that the pessary fits you correctly, doesn't become dislodged and feels reasonably comfortable. You'll be asked to return a few days after insertion of the pessary to check that it's still in the correct position. You may be advised to remove the device and clean it with soap and water periodically. Your doctor will show you how to remove and reinsert the device.

There are some drawbacks to these devices. A vaginal pessary will be of little use for a woman with severe uterine prolapse. Additionally, a vaginal pessary can irritate vaginal tissues, possibly to the point of causing small sores (ulcers). Some women with vaginal pessaries report a foul-smelling discharge, which requires removal and cleaning of the device by a physician. Pessaries may interfere with sexual intercourse.
*

Surgery to repair uterine prolapse. If lifestyle changes fail to provide relief from symptoms of uterine prolapse or pessary use isn't desirable, surgical repair is an option. The surgery involves repairing your pelvic floor muscles by grafting your own tissue, donor tissue or some synthetic material in such a way that it provides support to your pelvic organs. Often, doctors recommend surgical removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) as well.

Doctors generally prefer to perform the surgical repair vaginally because it's associated with less pain after surgery, faster healing and a better cosmetic result. However, vaginal surgery may not provide as lasting a fix as abdominal surgery. And if you didn't have your uterus removed during surgery, prolapse can recur. Laparoscopic techniques — using smaller abdominal incisions, a lighted camera-type device (laparoscope) to guide the surgeon and specialized surgical instruments — offer a minimally invasive approach to abdominal surgery.

Not everyone is a good candidate for surgery to repair uterine prolapse. This includes women who plan to have more children. Pregnancy and delivery of a baby put strain on the supportive tissues of the uterus and can undo the benefits of surgical repair. Other women who aren't recommended for surgery include older women for whom the risks of surgery are too great. Pessary use may be the best treatment choice for these women.

Prevention

Uterine prolapse may not be something you can prevent. However, you may be able to decrease your risk of uterine prolapse if you:

* Maintain a healthy weight. By keeping or getting your weight under control, you may decrease your risk of uterine prolapse.
* Practice Kegel exercises. Because pregnancy and childbirth can weaken pelvic floor muscles and connective tissue, your doctor may recommend Kegel exercises — special exercises in which you repeatedly squeeze and relax the muscles of your pelvic floor — during pregnancy and afterward. To perform these exercises, tighten your pelvic muscles as if you're stopping your stream of urine. Hold for a count of five, relax and repeat. Do these exercises several times a day.
* Control coughing. Treat a chronic cough or bronchitis, and don't smoke.

Taking estrogen after menopause seems to help older women maintain muscle tone, including muscles in the pelvic area. However, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) carries risks. Talk with your doctor and make sure the benefits derived from HRT outweigh the risks in your personal situation.

I am still waiting for the medicine FRAXINUS AMERICANA . In the meantime I want to ask you can she take this medicine with the medicine she is currently taking based on your earlier postinsgs. ( which I will not do in future without consulting you) Arnica 30c in wet dose (for hair loss) and Colocynthis 200 in the wet dose for carpel tunnel. I repeat now onwards I will ask you before I start anything new based on your postings.

I was not aware that your wife was already using Arnica and Colocynthis for other ailments.

Answering your question about taking multiple remedies, I would prefer that she does not do so if she feels that her prolapse is the main complaint.

She should also consult a gynaecologist about the pessary as this can help her pro tem and the remedy that I indicated Fraxinum Am can also hopefully help with her problem.

Re: Mr. Joe, need help with Uterine Prolapse By: pankajb

Should she continue using Arnica and Colocythins. Is it ok. Or she should stop one of these.

She can use Rhus Tox 30c and Arnica 6c both taken twice daily and both in the wet dose method. Leave a gap of about 2 hours between both remedies.

Report response in 4 days after she starts on this therapy which I have indcated for Urticaria.

The Arnica will also help with her hair loss.

You are advised to consult a doctor to get a diagnosis on what your wife's problem is exactly. I regret that I cannot diagnose her problem from here in Sri Lanka as it seems to be very complicate judging by your case record in your posts above.

After you have a diagnosis from a qualified physician, please post her data and I shall try to help.

Will do as adviced. In the meantime should she continue taking Rhus Tox 30c and Arnica 30c. Please advice.

BTW just to add something more to arnica - my wife informed for the first time in her life she did not have pains during her periods otherwise they had been always painful.

She can continue with the Arnica 30c wet dose as she has observed that it has done her some good.

The Rhus Tox can be stopped.

You are also advised to take a teaspoonful just before sleep and you may be surprised to discover how it helps you to sleep deeply.

Frequent acid reflux can damage esophageal lining which makes swallowing difficult; it causes dry coughing, chest pain with heartburn, chronic cough which can even initiate asthma and sinusitis.
Gastric Bypass Surgery: A Case Study
Dionne has been overweight for all of her life. There has never been a time that she can recall when she was not overweight. She has tried several kinds of diets but has always failed. Convinced that she would always be big, she allowed herself to eat whatever she wanted, gaining even more and more weight. Following a scare with her heart, her doctor sent her to a bariatric specialist who recommended that she have gastric bypass surgery right away. After her surgery, Dionne had to start using supplements for many of the nutrients that she was not getting from her small amounts of foods. It was also her choice to seek out behavioral support programs to help change her attitudes toward food and her own health.
In addition to these changes, Dionne is also adding a liquid protein supplement to her diet several times a day so that she is getting enough protein in her diet. She is also going to look for ways to exercise, knowing that she will have to start small and work her way up as she loses weight. As her body changes, she will need to adjust the types and amounts of foods that she eats. The less she weighs, the less that she will need to eat. However, as she builds lean muscle mass, her metabolism will increase and she may need slightly more food to keep her energy up.

For what it is worth to whoever reads this post and especially in response to:
blundellro@hotmail.com
I am copying below my default therapy aka "Joepathy" for GERD.

The therapy I have prescribed to hundreds of patients who presented GERD is copied below and the large majority of patients whom I have treated have been helped while many have been cured.

The remedies used are as follows:

Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

You can expect relief from your ailment hopefully within a few hours.

Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall when you will experience a stomach ache which in some cases can be very acute.

You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least hald hour daily to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

Please visit the links below which record the cases of other patients whom I have treated for GERD.

It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which may have been prescribed for this ailment.
