My mom is 59 years old. Height 5'2. weight 75.
She is having arthritis in both knees. Due to overweight she find difficult to stand for few more minutes or walk. Many Doctors whom we have concern suggests her to loose some weight that might help in her condition. she cannot regularly go for walk due to her knee pain. but she does tries to go once in a week for 20-30 mins. she does yoga and some streching exercises in morning for 15-20mins.
She is not having blood pressure or not suffering from Diabetes.
At age of 50, her periods were stopped(menopause).
Recently she is suffering from Stress and Urge inconsitence(urine leakage). Urologist have recommended medicines(Soliten-Ranbaxy) for it and have ask for weight loose to aid in this problem.
She is having fat accumulated on stomach and lower abdomen region.

Please suggest some medicine which would help her to loose some weight.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
If she has good bowel movements give her Pulsatilla 200. If she has constipated bowels, give her Causticum 200.

Please give her three doses of the indicated remedy as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Hello Doctor,

Thanks for the reply.
Just to confirm as I myself is taking Pulsatilla 1m to get periods regularly(suffering from Pcos). So to clarify one more time My mom's periods have gone 10 years back. So will it be safe to give her Pulsatilla 200 for weight loss. will it not induce her periods?
She doesnot have constipation.

So please advise.
Thanks again

A homeopathic remedy is a stimulation to vital force. It works best when selected on the basis of totality of symptoms. Peculiar symptoms point to totality. Totality is not a mass of symptoms. So pulsatilla may be well indicated for you as well as your mother though your symptoms are altogether different.

Pulsatilla has more chances to work for your mother if she is a home maker and prefers cold surroundings and open air.

She should have a bland diet like gehu dalia and avoid fried food items. She may be familiar to these suggestions as she does yoga regularly!

Hello Doctor,

Sorry for the late response. was busy with work. My fear for Pulsatilla 200 for her was some what right. On 28th August, My mother got little bleeding. She was shocked to find that as stains on her under garments not much but may be few drops. It was observed on one day only not after that.

No weight loss, no reduction in knee pain.

Please advice.

How is her problem of urine leakage now? Whether she has taken ayurvedic remedies like Yograj Guggulu for her knee pain before?

She is taking Soliten (Ranbaxy) for urine leakage problem. This medicine was prescibed by Urologist Dr from 19th August. Her Urine leakage problem is not 100% cure. still we can say its 90% cure.
In past she has taken Yograj guggulu, Mahayograj guggulu, chandraprabhavati, vatari churna, purnanavadi gugulu tablets from Patanjali chikitsalaya for her knee pain. she was having relief for some period of time. But after some time doses of allophatic medicines and ayurvedic medicines were increased. so she stopped taking gugulu tablets regularly. She takes Yograj/Maha yograj tablets when knee pain is unbearable.

If she can loose weight, it might help her knee pain to get reduced. So please suggest some medicines for reducing the weight specifically.

please advice.

Thank you Sir,
