Homoeopathy works by triggering and improving the body’s immune system to heal the underlying cause of the disease instead of treating only the symptoms. Thus, it helps in restoring the health of the body naturally. Moreover, since homoeopathic medicines are made from natural sources, they are safe to use by children, adults and the elderly. Increasing antibiotic resistance has also resulted in an increase in the number of people using homoeopathic remedies.

A case study on a male aged 53 years showed the usefulness of homoeopathy in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is one of the causes of testicular pain.

In another case study, thuja occidentalis, a homoeopathic remedy was successfully used to treat inguinal hernia in a male child aged 1-1/2 years.

According to a case report published in the journal Spinal cord homeopathic treatment can be safely used as an adjunct to conventional medicine for the treatment of epididymal-orchitis (inflammation of the testes and the epididymis) in a patient with spinal injury. The condition is one of the possible underlying causes of testicular pain.

Homoeopathic medicines are used in minute doses; hence, they are generally safe and do not show any adverse effects. There are no known cases of drug interactions between conventional and homoeopathic medicines. However, to be safe, it is necessary that you take these medicines under the supervision of a certified homoeopathic practitioner.

Thus, these remedies can be used along with conventional drugs to promote the overall well-being of the person. It is best not to take homeopathic medicines without the guidance of a qualified doctor.
