Diagnosis means the art and act of identifying the disease from its signs and symptoms. Proper diagnosis always compliments the various procedure taken by the homoeopathic physician.
FOR SELECTING THE CASE.
Proper diagnosis is a must to decide the type of treatment required by the patient.
Selection of cases requiring medicinal management.
Elimination of cases requiring surgical or mechanical mgt.
Selecting cases which come under similia.
PLAN OF TREATMENT.
Patients are presented in different forms and we have to adopt different modes in these cases.
Many of the cases are presented in secondary manifestations, the primary manifestation being obscure. Diagnosis give a clue towards primary manifestation.
Diagnosis of the disease in case with vague or obscure symptoms may give hint towards the seat and nature of the disease.
Diagnosis of the case with multi system involvement give hint towards the area of severity and help in the institution of treatment.
In cases with acute and chronic manifestation, separation of symptomatolgy of two is possible through the knowledge of diagnosis.
Diagnosis give the idea about the pathological and constitutional tendencies, that help us to decide whether a constitutional, miasmatic or palliative medicine is required.
It is an indirect help in the process of cure. Laboratory investigation reports or diagnosis definitely help us to access the effect of medicine, progress etc. in a condition.
For deciding the correct diet and regimen with general management of the case.
In accessing the depth of disease.
SELECTION OF MEDICINE .
In the evaluation of symptom _ from the knowledge of diagnosis we can separate symptoms of the disease from the symptoms of the patient.
Sieving out the peculiar, uncommon, charectrestic individualizing symptom from the various symptoms.
Helping us in the assessment of the real significant of the new symptom in the course of treatment after our prescription. Whether the new symptom belongs to the remedy or due to the further progress of the disease.
Cautious us in the use of deep acting violent remedies in too low or too high potencies when there is advanced pathological condition.
In accessing the depth of disease. Eg. leucorrhoea may prone to be a case of advanced carcinoma cervix.
From the pathologically diagnosed condition, certain nosodes may be prepared.
Help in the selection of potency.
Diagnosis provide the proper knowledge of general management including provision and exclusion of diet and regimen, exercise or rest, and any other accessory management.
To prevent contagious disease arising from an acute miasm, a physician must have a nosological diagnostic experiance.Diagnosis alone guide us in notifying and instituting proper preventive measures.
The effectiveness of our system can demonstrated to scientific society only through diagnostic basis.
Erectile dysfunction is a persistent or recurrent inability to attain, or maintain until completion of sexual activity, an adequate penile erection. This replaces the earlier term 'Impotence'. Erectile dysfunction can seriously mar the quality of life of the patients. A range of drugs like Alcohol and medications like Antihistamines, Antidepressants and Antihypertensions can cause erectile dysfunction.
The factors which contribute for organic erectile dysfunction include:
Chronic Illness: Atherosclerosis, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Renal Failure, Hepatic Failure, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Pathology, Peyronie's Disease, Depression, Anxiety, Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Hypogonadism, Hyperprolactinaemia.
Surgery: Radical Prostatectomy, Resection of the rectum, Major Pelvic Surgery.
Trauma: Neurological, Spinal Cord Injury, Pelvic Injury.
Drugs: Alcohol, Substance of abuse, Smoking.
Radiotherapy: External beam, Irradiation of the pelvis.
Medications: Antihypertensives, Thiazide Diuretics, Beta-Blockers, Antidepressants (Tricyclics), Harmones (Steroidal Antiandrogens), Tranquillzers (Phenothiazines), H2 Antagonists, Lipid Lowering Substances like 'Statins'.
Majority of sexual dysfunctions are primarily psychogenic in origin. Anxiety concerning sexual performance and fear of sexual failure are the most salient immediate causes of erectile difficulties. A history of sexual abuse, guilt about sexuality, and early homosexual experiences are among the more common factors that underline sexual dysfunction. Psychological causes include depression like major depressive episode or dysthymia, stress, anger, interpsychic problems, performance anxiety, low self-esteem. A man may have a good erection with masturbation, but not when sexually active with his regular partner.
In Allopathy 'Sildenafil Citrate' is the new oral therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It usually acts within an hour of administration. The drug enables erections to occur in response to but not in the absence of sexual stimulation. The manufacturer recommends caution if Sidenafil is used in patients with bleeding disorders or peptic ulcers or eye disorders or with poor cardiac status. Blood pressure is reduced transiently by Sildenafil 100 mg. However, larger blood pressure reductions may be observed when Sildenafil is given with nitrates.
Sildenafil under the brand name 'VIAGRA' is being sold in America and now even in Indian market Sildenafil is available under different brand names. It is very unfortunate that media has given very much importance to this drug by highlighting on the advantages by ignoring its serious side effects especially in those who are suffering from cardiovascular diseases. It is surprising to know that during April 1998 to February 2000, 522 people died from cardiovascular problems due to the side effects of Sildenafil. A majority of people who died were below 65 years of age with no cardiac risk factors (diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol or smoking). Secondly, Nitrates alongwith Sildenafil can cause serious cardiovascular events with fatal outcome.
The Nitrate drugs are:
Amyl Nitrate or Nitrite (Inhaled Forms)
Those patients are using the above Nitrates drugs should not use Sildenafil since it may cause potential life threatening hypotension, dizziness, faintness or even a heart attack or stroke.
Therefore, Sildenafil ('Viagra' or its other versions) is not the right choice for all men. In addition to this drug, many people take the help of Vaccum Constriction Device, Penile Injection Therapy, Intraurethral Therapy, Surgery. All of these treatments have different complications and side effects.
Adverse Reactions of 'Sildenafil':
Headache, flushing, dyspepsia, nasal congestion, urinary tract infection, abnormal vision, diarrhoea, dizziness, rash, respiratory tract infection, back pain, flu syndrome, arthralgia, angina pectoris AV block, migraine, syncope, tachycardia, palpitation, hypotension, postural hypotension, myocardial ischaemia, cerebral thrombosis, cardiac arrest, heart failure, abnormal electrocardiogram, cardiomyopathy , ataxia, hypertonia, neuralgia, neuropathy, paresthesia, tremor, vertigo, depression, insomnia, somnolence, abnormal dreams, decreased reflexes, hyperaesthesia, seizure, anxiety, urticaria, herpes simples, pruritus, sweating, skin ulcer, contact dermatitis, exfoliative dermatitis, vomiting, glossitis, colitis, dysphagia, gastritis, gastroenteritis, esophagitis, stomatitis, dry mouth, abnormal liver function tests, rectal hemorrhage, gingivitis, thirst, edema, gout, unstable diabetes, hyperglycemia, peripheral edema, hyperuricemia, hypoglycemic reaction, hypernatremia, arthritis, arthrosis, myalgia, tendon rupture, tenosynovitis, bone pain, myasthenia, synovitis, mydriasis, conjunctivitis, photophobia, tinnitus, eye pain, deafness, ear pain, eye hemorrhage, cataract, dry eyes, diplopia, temporary vision loss/decreased vision, ocular redness or bloodshot appearance, ocular burning, ocular swelling/pressure, increased intra-ocular pressure, retinal vascular disease or bleeding, vitreous detachment/traction and paramacular edema, face edema, photosensitivity reaction. Shock,asthenia, pain, chills, accidental fall, abdominal pain, allergic reaction, chest pain, accidental injury.
In view of all the above negative factors, complications and adverse reactions, Homoeopapthy has the best and the safest possible treatment to cure the problem of erectile dysfunction quite effectively without any complications or side effects.

Homeopathic remedy 'Sabal Serrulata' has recommended for Discharge of prostatic fluid. But here the discharge type has not specified. Is it means secretion, dribbling or flow? Secretion means secretely discharge, which is invisible and only can detected by wetness feeling or bad smell. Dribbling means drop by drop discharge and flow means continue discharge.
The remedy 'Damiana' has been suggested for Chronic prostatic discharge? Is it means discharge of prostatic fluid? Here also discharge style is not clear; is it secretion, dribbling or flow?

My age is 28. I am suffering from psychological impotence.
I loose erection while doing intercourse. My erection is fine I guess but while doing intercourse I loose erection because of the thought of loosing it.
I mean... The minute i will think of maintaining my erection I fail to maintain my erection. And the continuous episodes like this has completely destroyed my confidence.
Know, I fear from even having sex. I masturbate daily but during masturbation I am so much concerned about the erection that I have stopped enjoying sex. But, I have full desire of having good sex every time i do it.
Please help me with the medicine and also explain me how much dose must i take?
According to me I must take Argentum Nitricum becuase I think I have most of the same symptoms. Or can I take both Argentum Nitricum and Agnus Castus. That is for better erection and fearlessness.

Treatment can include:
Making lifestyle changes, such as avoiding tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. It may also help to talk about the issue with your partner, do sensual exercises, and get counseling.
Finding and then stopping medicines that may be causing the problem. In some cases you can take a different medicine that does not cause erection problems.
Taking prescription medicine that can help you get erections. These include pills such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra). Check with your doctor to see if it is safe for you to take one of these medicines with your other medicines. These can be dangerous if you have heart disease that requires you to take nitroglycerin or other medicines that contain nitrates.
Taking medicines and getting counseling for depression or anxiety.
Using vacuum devices or getting shots of medicine into the penis.
Having surgery to place an implant in the penis.
