From the evaluation of results obtained after the statistical analysis of the pre-treatment and post-treatment disease intensity scores, it is obvious that anti miasmatic medicines selected on the basis of the totality of symptoms are highly effective in the management of Urolithiasis.
The mental generals and physical generals should be given prime importance.
The tendency to the recurrence of calculi can be controlled/eradicated by the exact simillimum
Psora and Sycosis are found to be the predominant miasms in urolithiasis
The other observed facts in this study are the maximum age incidence (40 to 50 years), sex incidence (83.33% males) highlights some of the risk factors of the disease
Antimiasmatic deep acting constitutional medicines like Lycopodium, Nux vomica, Sulphur, Pulsatilla, Silicea, Stapysagria etc were found to be effective for controlling both the acute attacks and also for preventing recurrence, when given after strict individualisation.
Many cases, which are recommended to do surgery, can be effectively treated with homoeopathic constitutional medicine.
It can also be claimed that homoeopathy is far more cost effective when compared with expensive drugs and other procedures like lithotripsy used in other systems of medicines
To conclude, limited reliability can only be guaranteed with such a study involving a chronic disease, with 30 cases, for two year period. A long term follow-up study will be more reliable as the disease is exhibiting recurrence. Comparative studies involving other systems of medicine can also be accomplished with better results.
