Aim and method

The objective of this research was to study the effect of homeopathic treatment with Plumbum metallicum (Plumbum met.) on mandibular bone repair in rats.

Materials and methods

We analyzed the mandibles of 60 male rats, approximately 3-month-old, randomly divided into three groups of 20 animals each: control, treated with calcitonin, and treated with a homeopathic medicine. A circumscribed bone defect measuring 4 mm in diameter was made in the mandible and covered with a polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) barrier. The group treated with calcitonin received 2 IU/kg intramuscularly three times a week; the group treated with Plumbum met. 30c received three drops in water every day. The animals were sacrificed after 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. The mandibles were removed and submitted to histologic and histomorphometric analyses.

Results

Data were analyzed statistically by two-way ANOVA and by the Tukey test. The interaction effect (ANOVA, F df(6; 48) = 4.64; p = 0.001 < 0.05) indicated that the relationship between treatments was not the same at each time of sacrifice. Although statistical analysis of the histomorphometric data showed a similar results for the treated and control groups. But histological analysis showed complete filling of the surgical defect throughout its extent was only for the group treated with Plumbum met.

Thank you so much for everything!

All my eye pain and headache is gone. The most I feel is just a little tingling now and then.

Otherwise everything else is going phenomenally well in life! It just couldn’t be any better.

I also got a new job. I sent out my resume, and it was the one type of job I wanted, and it was just a good fit.

I just had a look on job searching and I just let it happen.

I’m so happy right now!

I also got accepted to a new school and I’ve already started reading the textbooks.

I’m surprised how much I’m actually absorbing. I’ve never been good at that but now I’m actually absorbing it.

And I don’t seem to have so much a problem with nuts these days.

Since the last time I've seen you, I didn't notice my stomach at all. 

Even with other people in my life I’m just been letting them know how I feel about things, instead of letting that hold me back.

It’s just phenomenal.

I look forward to my appointments with you every month!

I was suicidally depressed, and had really bad sinus, head and joint pain when I came to see Andy. His homeopathic remedy and naturopathic treatment turned my life around within weeks and - more than 5 years later - I'm doing better than ever!

M.C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I had been binge-eating and starving since I was a teenager, and I'd been put on countless concoctions by regular doctors for my depression, mood swings, and bone problems.

I was always in such physical and psychological pain before Dr. Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique work.

Now I've lost 60 pounds and feel awesome about myself.

Even my bones are stronger, and I don't get any more stomach issues with milk.

Andrea Baxter, Toronto, Ontario
