Some 40 years ago, I began using the term “hot pelvis”. It stemmed from reading a very seminal book by a Swedish doctor/medical scientist, Professor of Neurology at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, called Patrick Störtebecker: Dental Caries as a Cause of Nervous Disorders and he lists epilepsy, schizophrenia, MS and brain cancer. He’s dead now (1911-1995).
Patrick had some amazing experimental results studying multiple sclerosis (MS) and it’s many contributory factors. He injected dyes and followed the tracking color through the body and tissues. I used one of his illustrations in my own book Virtual Medicine, now Medicine Beyond. He observed that dye injected into the mouth or eye tracked back rather easily to the brain, notably the cavernous venous sinus.
The dye seemed to follow the nerves. He drew the obvious conclusion that if a dye followed this pathway, then so could bacteria and other pathogens (see diagram).
I remarked in my book that this may be why, as a child, my Mum and other adults of the time banned picking at spots on your face. There was a terrible risk, which the Mum’s would hardly understand, that it could lead to cavernous sinus thrombosis and subsequent sepsis, right in the heart of the skull! This was in the days before antibiotics, of course; but even today it’s a good interdiction.
Anyway, here’s why I am telling you this. Patrick, as I said, studied lots of MS cases and found two remarkable things:
- A type of MS where the eyes and vision are constantly affected, resulting in ultimate blindness, it almost ALWAYS associated with tooth caries and dental infections. Look at the diagram again and it’s obvious why!
- The other type of MS is the difficulty in walking version, or ultimately lower-limb paralysis and that was almost ALWAYS associated with genito-urinary disease. Extrapolating from the dental model, it meant that pathogens from the pelvis quickly migrated to the lower spinal cord, and caused MS degeneration of the nerves there, affecting the leg muscles.
When I say remarkable, I constantly remark on these findings but most doctors don’t even know what I’m talking about!
Thing is, I got the bigger picture instantly. This could apply to men and prostatitis, etc. Yes.
BUT WOMEN WERE THE ONES AT MAJOR RISK! See, a woman’s pelvis is open to the outside world! There is a path up the vagina, through the cervix, into the uterus, along the fallopian tubes and, ultimately, into the abdominal cavity, in the vicinity of the ovaries. It’s the reverse of what happens to the woman’s eggs each time she ovulates.
And it’s a fact that infection often creeps into her “apparatus”. There’s vaginitis, cystitis, endometritis and salpyngo-oophoritis. Endometritis means an infection of the lining inside the uterus; salpingo-oophoritis is in the tubes. It can be due to chlamydia, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, or a mix of normal vaginal bacteria. It is more likely to occur after miscarriage, abortion or childbirth. It is also more common after a long labor or C-section.
There may be a vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor. This should help call attention to the fact that there is a problem.
Patrick never gave us a diagram for this, but here’s one I found online:
The open passage from her vulva right up to the ovaries (and even beyond) is clear, I think, although a healthy uterus and tubes would sit far lower in the body than shown. That can, and does, lead to a lot of trouble. For example, many women studied reported worsening MS, being weaker/less capable of walking, due to their menses or known nearby inflammation.
Since reading Patrick’s book, I was hooked on this problem and have kept it firmly in mind ever since. Most doctors would allow the term “pelvic inflammatory disease” (PID). I still like to talk of the “hot pelvis”. It’s more graphic and brings home the message straight away!
Any chronic inflammation can—and often does—lead to cancerous growth. Cancers LOVE inflammation because it makes their destructive work far easier.
And if you imagine a troubled pelvis, inflamed, overrun with pathogens, the body’s fight-back response going on, and a lot of old scar tissues, you will understand it can be a right old mess!
Bacteria can escape and travel to anywhere in the body and set up a new home: heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, yes, even the brain. It all depends how well the immune system can cope. But you can be sure the immune system would rather relax and take it easy, than be in CONSTANT battle with the pelvic tissue invasion.
Thing is, constant battle leads to more bad news, such as fatigue, allergies, and on occasion, autoimmune disease. The hot pelvis is a store of trouble!
What Can You Do?
Normal hygiene habits are essential and should be taught to young girls at an early age:
- No dirty fingers (and that means boy’s fingers too when she is older)
- Persistent alertness to the very short distance between the anus and it’s associated pathogens to the vulva.
- Clean clothing and panties, frequently changed.
- I do NOT recommend douching because the positive pressure can force infected liquid in the wrong direction (towards the inside).
Here’s the tougher stuff for adults:
- Make your husband, boyfriend or steady bathe daily, just as you do
- No vaginal penetration after anal sex.
- Here’s something a hooker told me: Smell the guy’s penis and foreskin area first, if you are contemplating sex with a total stranger.
- Avoid promiscuity at all costs.
- DON’T FORGET: the man may be promiscuous and that puts YOU at risk. Be very careful who you romp with (should that be whom?
If it’s gone wrong and you have trouble, treatment can be protracted.
Antibiotics are always available and it’s better to avoid a brain abscess or osteomyelitis than sticking to a doctrinaire stance about being “holistic”.
Usually things are not so dangerous. I would always prefer a gentle nutritional and perhaps homeopathic approach. Do everything you can to strengthen your immune system.
Unfortunately, homeopathic remedies need some skill in choosing (we choose by the patient’s characteristics, NOT by disease or symptoms).
A simpler answer is what we called Homotoxicology or sometimes “German homeopathy” or “Complex homeopathy”.** You can get mixtures or formulas aimed at specific physical problems.
So, for example, a German firm called HEEL offer Metro-Adnex-Heel or Gynaco-Heel. Ovarium compositum is good to try for PCOS and other menstrual irregularities.
Personally, I have always leaned strongly towards so-called “drainage” or detox remedies—for obvious reasons. Berberis is good, so is Nux vomica. HEEL have a very trustworthy drainage remedy called Lymphomyosot, which I used a lot.
But hey! HEEL do an actual drainage/detox “kit”, which contains 3 parts: Berberis (sometimes written Nieren tropfen), Nux vom and lymphomyosot. You can get it online, even on eBay.
That’s all on this for today because it is a VERY big subject, with textbooks of drainage remedies running to over 500 pages! I’ll come back to it.
Something special! Next week I’ll be announcing a very advanced protocol for the hot pelvis, from PCOS to endometriosis, dysmenorrhea to dyspareunia, excessive and irregular bleeding to vaginitis.
