Homeopathy and Arthritis Pain

By Sandra Fierling

Homeopathy was discovered by a physician in Germany called Samuel Hahnemann at the end of the 18th Century. It is known as the 'law of similars' or 'like can be cured by like'. These remedies are often toxic (for example the herb belladonna) but they are diluted so much that often only miniscule amounts or sometimes nothing remain. Apparently the higher the dilution, the more effective they are!

It is a form of alternative medicine which has become popular over time and many people swear by its use. Fortunately there are many recognized homeopathic doctors and if you wish to look into this form of treatment if you have arthritis, it is best to visit with a doctor who specializes in homeopathy. This way the doctor can examine you and work out a treatment plan with you and then monitor your progress.

It is also important to know that homeopathic medicine (as with many 'alternative' therapies) is not evaluation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If you go regularly to a doctor of your choice for your arthritis, it may be a good idea to ask him his opinion of seeking homeopathic remedies in your particular case.

There are many homeopathic remedies that could help with arthritis in its many forms, depending on which type of pain you experience.

For example, Calcarea Fluorica can be beneficial when the joints of the fingers have become enlarged or when joints crack when moving and a sharp pain is experienced. This remedy is also recommended when warmth provides relief and when changes in the weather can affect arthritis pain adversely.

Another remedy for arthritis is Sulphur. This can be used when joints are not only painful but are itchy with a burning feeling. Also when damp weather causes additional pain and any form of heat means even more soreness.

Arnica is a great remedy to mention. If you have sustained an injury and arthritis has been a result of this, then Arnica could help you. If your arthritis pain is such that you are fearful of being touched because of the increased pain this may cause, then Arnica could be the remedy of choice. Arnica is good for soreness and is a great remedy to keep in the bathroom cabinet even if anyone gets bruised.

As you can see, homeopathy can get very specific when it comes to symptoms. It could also be why it has enjoyed success. Many people swear by it and others think it is hocus pocus!
