Repetitive physical behaviour will eventually lead to damages to your body. For example, if you always carry heavy equipment and don’t take the necessary precautions, then you would most probably develop chronic back pain. This is true for a lot of people, and it can be debilitating to say the least.
Today, chronic pain is one of the main reasons why people are looking for alternative therapies. And one of the most popular ones is homeopathic pain treatment.
What is Homeopathy for Chronic Pain?
Homeopathy is a system that was developed well over 200 years ago by a German physician by the name of Samuel Christian Hahnemann. He was able to observe that by providing small amounts of a particular substance, that would normally cause the same symptoms to a healthy person and in large amounts, it can actually cure the same symptoms.
That may be the basic premise, but that is not all there is to it when it comes to homeopathy for chronic pain. The trick is to take a look at the individual and not just the symptoms. By knowing the individual, we are able to take a look at the entire characteristic of the injury. We need this information to better treat the individual.
An example of this would be asking the patient on how he feels about the pain. Does it make him/her irritable or sluggish? Different people react to varying degrees of pain differently. Again, by knowing this, we are able to provide a more holistic treatment which leads to an improved healing process.
Homeopathy – More than Managing the Pain
A lot of different remedies in the market today are tagged as managing the pain. But the problem here is that pain is the body’s way of saying that there is something wrong. There is an imbalance in the body that needs to be rectified. By managing the pain, you only manage or treat the indicator of the problem, it does not actually address it.
Yes you will be able to get out of bed again and go back to work. Yes you will be able to move about freely again. But it is a temporary relief and soon you will need your treatment again to manage the pain.
That is one of the main differences of homeopathy for chronic pain. It does not only look at the pain as the problem, it searches for the actual problem.
For example, a person can develop chronic elbow pain from work. By managing the pain with traditional methods, they only take away the symptom. With homeopathy, we look at how the pain was developed and what the actual problems is it causing. Has the years of wear and tear deteriorated the tendon? Has it affected something else? Homeopathy can help determine all of these things and more to provide the best possible treatment that not only targets the pain as a symptom, but the cause of the pain as well.
In this way, the body is improved exponentially, and the damage will be restored which leads to a stronger and healthier you.
The Cost of Homeopathy for Chronic Pain
When it comes right down to the cost of doing homeopathy for chronic pain rather than traditional medicine, you would find that this is actually cheaper. The reason being is that the medicines used in homeopathy are not patentable in their pure form. Without patent, they are a lot cheaper to produce and cheaper for the patient.
So not only is homeopathy better for chronic pain, it can also save you money as well.
Homeopathy Treatment for Chronic Pain
There are a lot of ways to treat chronic pain using homeopathic methods. However, as mentioned earlier, there are a lot of other factors than just the symptoms to determine what the best route to take is. That being said, here are some of the more common homeopathic pain remedies and their backgrounds.
**Please note** These descriptions cannot be used to treat, but just to give a person an idea of the different homeopathic remedies available. Each remedy must be matched to the individual’s unique problem. This is why it’s best to consult a homeopathic specialist on your individual situation.
This is an herbal remedy that has been used since the 1500s to target aching muscles and help in healing wounds. It is also good for bruises and sprains.
This medicine is also commonly known as St. John’s wort. It is a viable option for pain that shoots up and down a particular body part which is common with injuries that involve nerve damage.
The Rhus Toxicodendron medicine is quite interesting because it is actually made from poison ivy. Of course the poison part is removed for the purpose of the treatment. It is recommended for people who are suffering from back pains, arthritis, or any other pain that seems to be worse in the morning just after waking up and slowly becomes better through heat and motion.
For people that have chronic pain in their joints, Ledum is a common choice for treatment. This is because it targets swollen and cold joints. It is also good for chronic pain conditions wherein it seems to get worse as the body is in motion.
Another treatment that is commonly used for pain associated with joints. It is used for pain that feels like it is cutting or sticking, or there is a tearing sensation when the body is in motion.
Last but certainly not the least, is Guaiacum. This is perfect for achy joints that are swollen or are very stiff, especially if the pain gets worse when pressure is put on it. This is a common problem associated with the head, pain, and neck area.
