EPO (Erythropoetin)

Homeopathic remedy: Erhythropoetin
Organ or organ system: Liver and kidneys.
Theme: Introversion.

Erythropoietin is a hormone that is produced by the kidneys and to a lesser degree the liver and macrophages. Erythropoietin acts on the bone marrow where it stimulates the production of red blood cells. It is sometimes called haematopoetin and is a glycoprotein.

EPO works by stimulating the body to produce more red blood cells. Synthesis of EPO in the body is regulated by the amount of oxygen available in the blood. The feedback mechanism is relatively slow. In blood loss or oxygen deficiency it can take hours before the body rebalances. In the case of anaemia, erythropoietin synthesis increases. When the haematocrit decreases, erythropoietin rises exponentially.
Erythropoietin can be manufactured in laboratories in the form recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) known by brand names such as Eprex, Mircera etc.

Originally, it was used for people with chronic kidney disease, anaemia, and other blood disorders. It is now best known for its use as a performance enhancer in high level sport (e.g. cycling). One of the risks of the administration of erythropoietin is that the blood can become too viscous giving an increased risk of thrombosis.

Introversion: EPO provides balance in people who seem quiet, but are stressed on the inside, which can cause kidney problems, adrenal pelvic inflammatory disease or chronic nephritis.

Renal insufficiency;
Chronic renal infection,
Nephritis; if given in time can prevent dialysis;
Low Haemoglobin, low iron stores;
Anaemia due to blood loss in the urine;
Epo imbalance through prolonged use of xylomethazoline (nasal sprays).
