Homeopathic medicine is a specialized form of pharmacology used throughout the world by physicians and other health and medical care providers. Nanodoses of plants, mineral, animal, chemical, or pathogens are prescribed based on their ability to cause in overdose specific syndromes in patients. Because symptoms are considered adaptations of the human body to fight infection and/or to adapt to stress, using nanodoses of substances that could cause similar symptoms that patients experience is one way to influence gene expression, immunological development, and the genitourinary microbiome to initiate a healing process. The homeopathic approach to the prevention and treatment of sexual problems requires analysis of a person’s overall syndrome, not simply local disease. This chapter provides specific homeopathic medicines with abbreviated summaries of their indications in (a) genitourinary dysbiosis, (b) sexual trauma and psychosexual conflict, and (c) sexual pain and functional limitation.
