Homeopathy is applicable in so many conditions because homeopathic case-taking and prescribing does not centre on a particular diagnosis or the name of a disease but on the patient’s individual expression of sensations and symptoms in totality.
However many enquirers want to know what homeopathy can achieve for a named condition. Therfore here is a sample of the wide range of aliments that patients have had diagnosed and then come to me as homeopath for relief and improvement :
acne, ADHD, aids, allergies, alcohol related problems, aggression, alzheimers, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, autism, burns, cancers (various), chest infections, coeliac disease, cystitis, diabetes, dengue fever, diverticulitis, eczema, energy low, eating disorders, fears, grief, glandular fever, gulf war syndrome, hair loss, hepatitis, hyperactive children, impotence, infertility, irritable bowel, low self-worth, shingles, menstual disorders (including dysmenorrhea), menopausal symptoms, m.e., m.s., nightmares , parkinsons, phobias, psoriasis, sleep problems, thyroid imbalance, vaccine concerns.
If headache symptoms are part of “the picture” or the patient's major concern, there are more than 1800 documented homeopathic "headache" remedies available, and potententially many more, as yet, undiscovered. Only those remedies which match the patients description of their headache will be effective, so precision is required.
For example, the patient may say specifically that “it is a throbbing headache in my forehead, that is worse for stooping, walking and the heat of the sun.” This information may lead the practitioner to consider the plant remedy Belladonna, if other indications confirm that selection. This process of very accurately recording sensations is repeated for all observable symptoms and also importantly for such factors as life circumstances, sensitivities and disposition which are included and considered when deciding on a suitable medicine.
A single well-matched remedy can be appropriate for what may appear at first to be a range of disparate physical problems occurring in different parts of the body, whilst concurrently addressing mental and emotional disturbances. These may include depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and phobias which are examples of what can occur as part of the overall picture. In other words, Homeopathy is not bound by the names of diseases and it’s effect can be comprehensive, going far beyond what is conventionally considered as beneficial .
Patients with serious pathology who are managed with prescribed medication can safely add homeopathy to their regime. This process should be welcomed and reviewed for efficacy by doctors and consultants when possible and particlularly for those that were not previously responding well to conventional treatment. If you have a named disease or condition without a diagnosis, please enquire to discuss how Homeopathy can help. For information on peer reviewed and published cases you will find www.interhomeopathy.org very interesting.
