Homeopathic pain remedies are safe and effective.
Fear that pain-relieving drugs can be harmful or even fatal has many people searching for alternative methods of pain relief. Homeopathy is an alternative pain remedy that is safe and effective, even over long periods of time. Many homeopathic treatments have passed clinical trials and are prepared in homeopathic labs following FDA guidelines.
Homeopathic medicine has been around for more than 2,000 years. Based on the Law of Similars, it works on the same principle as many immunizations: it prevents and cures sickness by providing a small dosage of something that would make you sick in a larger dosage. Such treatments have been proven in clinical trials. It is unknown exactly how these treatments work, only that they do indeed work. And patients can take these pain remedies with the peace of mind of knowing that they are all natural.
Homeopathic Remedies Useful for Treating Back Pain
Here are a few homeopathic remedies that are used for treating various types of back pain:
Aesculus (buckeyes and horse chestnuts) – Used to treat nagging, dull pain.
Colocynthis (bitter apple, bitter cucumber, egusi or vine of Sodom) – A viny plant native to the Mediterranean Basin and Asia, it is especially used to treat weakness and muscle cramps. It is also a strong laxative and must be treated carefully.
Arnica Montana (leopard’s bane, wolf’s bane, mountain tobacco and mountain arnica) – A European flowering plant with large yellow capitula, it is used to treat back trauma. It is poisonous in large amounts and can irritate with skin contact.
Gnaphalium (a genus of plants commonly called cudweeds, belonging to the family Asteraceae) – It is used to treat sciatica pain.
Rhus Toxicodendron (poison ivy) – A woody vine, it is well known for its ability to produce urushiol, a skin irritant that causes an itching rash for most people, used to treat stiffness and pain in the lower back.
For obvious reasons it is dangerous to use many homeopathic medicines without supervision, including those listed above. They are, however, available from homeopathic practitioners as well as online and at some health food stores.
More Positive Benefits of Homeopathic Pain Relief
Homeopathic tablets can reduce stiffness and improve mobility without side effects like drowsiness. The ingredients are all natural and alcohol-free, and are made in accord with the Homeopathic Pharmacopia of the United States.
In homeopathic treatment, your symptoms often get worse before they get better. This usually confirms that the treatment is working. When it comes to pain relief, however, homeopathic treatment works as fast as any conventional tablet at the drug store.
