Before we list these homeopathic remedies, here is a light insight about them. Homoeopathic medicines are drug components made by homoeopathic pharmacies consisting of plants, minerals and animal extracts. Remedies (usually in liquid, tablet or powder form) are prescribed in accordance with a patient’s symptoms and health conditions while individual characteristics such as emotions and physical condition are also taken into account. Based on that, here are some homeopathic remedies commonly used in the treatment of urinary incontinence:
Arnica is great for involuntary urination that occurs after surgery. Belladonna is helpful for people who tend to leak urine when they are cold. Causticum is helpful when involuntary urination is worse in winter and better in summer. It is also useful for stress incontinence. Equisetum is useful for those people that wet their pants or their bed for no known reason, other than out of habit. Ferrum phos is helpful for daytime involuntary urination, especially when the urge is strongest while standing. Kreosotum is useful when the person has a sudden urge to urinate but do not have enough time to get to the bathroom. Lycopodium is useful for those that are so anxious that they always worry about what others think of them. Zincum is useful for stress incontinence, urinary retention caused by prostate problems, and the inability to urinate while standing. Pareira is good for the retention of urine from an enlarged prostate. Sepia is good for stress incontinence with the sudden urge to urinate, especially with a prolapsed uterus and vaginitis.
