This group of problems all of which cause debilitating pain in the genital and pelvic area cause untold misery to thousands of women.

 

Orthodox medicine

This offers no easy solutions to this complex group of problems.

Homeopathy

The fact that the cause of these conditions is not easy to locate in many cases does not deter homeopathic treatment. This is because a homeopathic remedy is chosen from a detailed description of your symptoms. On taking a history of the condition I will need to ask very specific questions about what aggravates and alleviates the pain, what sort of pain it is and even what you think may be the cause of the pain. Your personal psychological reaction to the pain will also be taken into consideration before a remedy is prescribed. I have found homeopathy to be a useful therapy in the holistic treatment of this condition but inevitable combine it with Autogenic Therapy and any other system of treatment that I think could be helpful in your particular case.

Dr Kaplan: Provocative Therapy

In December 2012, as result of a stress at work, I suffered from severe anxiety, fear, panic attacks, tachycardia and insomnia.These symptoms became increasingly severe and were associated with low self-esteem and loss of self-confidence. I consulted my GP who prescribed Citalopram and beta blockers for the tachycardia. The antidepressant did not suit me and I felt worse. I was then referred to Dr Brian Kaplan, to be treated with the ‘Provocative Therapy’. This treatment adapted by Dr Kaplan, is based on the principle that the therapist ask questions covering all aspects of the patient’s life, by exaggerating the meanings of it. During the 1 hour session, the patient experiences a strong reaction, triggered by the ‘Provocative’ input of the therapist. Initially, there is an increased fear with regression to the childhood, associated to strong emotions and sorrow, which may precipitate sobbing. Subsequently, this state is followed by a phase of self-analysis which is more constructive. The ‘provocation’ breaks the pattern of the patient’s own feelings of hopelessness and discomfort. In fact, there is an opening of the self-image and a critical strong desire for change, in response to the provocation, which can be at times, outrageous. I underwent 9 weekly sessions during which I progressively became free from fear. The anxiety and panic attacks reduced significantly and I started to know what I want from my life and became more positive and optimistic. At the end of the 9 weeks, I acquired my self-confidence and self – esteem together with a new approach in my life which initially appeared to me broken and rather useless. The 9 sessions – in my opinion – were sufficient to resolve the initial acute state with anxiety and I felt a person full of interest and happier.  It is more than one year since I started the ‘provocative therapy’ with Dr Kaplan and I have not had any relapse to the original symptoms and discomfort. I strongly recommend this this therapy as a novelty; this is medication- free and can produce resolution of the acute psychological/mental conditions, quicker than the conventional therapies. In order to be successful, it is crucial that the patient collaborates and has complete trust in the therapist. The scientific process of such a treatment is not yet known and /or clarified. However, a number of recent studies in Neurophysiology and Psychiatry have shown the importance of hexogen and endogen stimuli, which can triggers and induce changes in the brain in response to the external inputs, acting via the hypothalamic/endocrine axes. It can be suggested that some of these mechanisms may be involved in the therapeutic process of the Provocative Therapy, but a lot of work needs to be in hand.
