Ranula and homeopathy






They are clear or bluish cysts caused as a result of blocked salivary gland (SUBLINGUAL, SUBMANDIBULAR, PAROTID) in the mouth.

Homoeopathic medicines embody a great healing potential in dealing with the case of ranula. With the well selected remedy comes the great results. Homeopathic medicines are completely devoid of side effects and this is why they are considered to be the safest medicines.


If the ranula stays in the mouth below the tongue, it is called a simple ranula and if it grows into the neck under the mouth it is called as plunging ranula.


Salivary glands are small structures around the mouth that forms saliva. That should drain from these glands directly into the mouth. If in any case one of these glands gets damaged then the saliva may leak out into the tissues near the gland leading to the cyst formation. This cyst is called as ranula.
