Remedies for Hydrocele and Varicocele: Plumbum Metallicum

Varicocele is a medical condition caused by the swelling of the veins in the area of the scrotum and the testicles. Varicocele can hinder male fertility by causing erectile issues and may also affect the quality and motility of the sperm. There are a few natural and homeopathic remedies that can be applied to reduce this condition and improve fertility. Plumbum metallicum is a compound that may be used as is or in conjunction with other solutions or dilutions to reduce the swelling of the veins in the scrotum area.

Plumbum Metallicum

Plumbum metallicum is the term used for lead, which is a metal that may be toxic in high doses, but may have curative effects on a number of health conditions. The lead, having the symbol Pb (from the Latin plumbum) is a malleable metal that can be employed in construction or in the making of batteries and bullets.

In the past, plumbum metallicum has been used in producing pipes and coloring paints, but the lead has been replaced with safer ingredients.

Plumbum Metallicum for Varicocele

The plumbum metallicum can have benefic effects on a patient with varicocele. The lead should never be used in an undiluted solution and should be administered only if recommended by a specialist (i.e. homeopath).

The plumbum metallicum for varicocele is a homeopathic remedy that will be used as a dilution and will be administered in a low dose at first. As the cure progresses, the homeopath will increase the concentration of the dilution, which will also act as an immune system stimulant. The dose will be slowly decreased, and the plumbum metallicum dilution will be gradually replaced by a placebo solution, which should have the same effects as the actual dilution.

The plumbum metallicum may be mixed with various other herbal or mineral ingredients or as a sole compound in the dilution. The formula for the dilution will be established judging by the overall health of the patient and whether there are other medical conditions that need a cure. The homeopathic remedies will aim at improving the overall health of the patient and fixing specific problems as well. A treatment with plumbum metallicum should be administered for at least 2 months for results to be visible.

Plumbum Metallicum Toxicity

Plumbum metallicum can be a toxic ingredient if used in high doses. Lead poisoning can cause damage to the nervous system and lead to blood and brain disorders. If the patient is exposed to lead for an extended period of time, this can cause severe abdominal pain and neuropathy.

Other possible effects of plumbum metallicum treatment may include:

  • Anemia
  • High blood pressure or hypertension
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver damage

The plumbum metallicum accumulates gradually in the bones and soft tissues and can reach a lethal dose. Due to the potential toxicity of lead, many patients prefer to avoid a plumbum metallicum treatment for varicocele and find alternative treatments that are less risky such as:

  • Rhododendron
  • Arnica Montana
  • Fluoric acidum
