Homeopathic medicine has existed for over 200 years. Usages include the treatment of diseases and conditions by using substances that produce similar symptoms in healthy people. Patients take these substances in diluted amounts until the body develops a tolerance for them. When this occurs patients can then take these substances in less diluted forms.
Homeopathic Treatment and Neuropathy
Several homeopathic substances may relieve the nerve pain of neuropathy including aconite which offers relief for shooting pains, belladonna which relieves pain that comes on suddenly, and hypericum which relieves pain in the fingers and toes.
Other symptoms of neuropathy may also respond to homeopathic treatment. Cantharsis may give relief to tingling and burning, while Mag Phos may stop muscle cramping and spasms.
Homeopathic remedies are regulated in the same way as over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, except since homeopathic products contain little or no active ingredients, they do not undergo the same safety testing as prescription and new OTC drugs.
Do not use homeopathic remedies instead of prescribed medical treatment. Always inform your doctor of any homeopathic treatment you use.
