Sciatica can cause a wide variety of back pain symptoms since it involves the sciatic nerve which is connected to other nerves in both the pelvis and the spine. Symptoms range from leg numbness, pain and weakness. Homeopathic remedies are safe and effective and can relieve many of sciatica’s painful symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are potent, yet highly diluted. A C dose means that it has been diluted 100 times; an X dose signifies it has been diluted 10 times.
The remedy Aconite in 30C dose is sometimes prescribed by homeopaths to those with sciatic pain when personality symptoms include a general fear of large groups, restlessness, impatience and an accompanying feeling of despair. Aconite is the correct remedy when an individual’s pain symptoms tend to improve when exposed to warmth, fresh air and rest, and are exacerbated in the cold and in drafts.
When personality symptoms include irritability, embarrassment and suppressed anger, a 6C dose of Colocynthis is sometimes prescribed to those suffering with sciatic pain. Colocynthis is the right remedy when the individual’s symptoms are improved by applying pressure or heat on the afflicted area and when the symptoms are worsened by exposure to emotional stress, cold and damp weather.
Ammonium chloratum in the 6C dose is often prescribed for various joint pain, but it is also helpful for sciatic pain as well. Ammonium chloratum is the appropriate remedy when the individual exhibits apprehension, general melancholy and when physical symptoms improve when he is exposed to fresh air, bending over and worsens when the individual walks upright or sits down.
