Anybody have any experience with Homeopathic remedies? if not, I highly recommend looking for a practitioner and having at least 1 consult to see what they recommend for you. I know many see success with Arthritis and Anxiety/Hormonal disorders
I also wanted to mention for any of you who are suffering with chronic pain, a friend recommends 10,000 units of Rosehip taken once daily, she has arthritis/ osteoarthritis and gout.. after a few weeks she said she was hardly using any painkillers. Always talk to a professional first but I wanted to put that out there.
Here's a bit on Homeopathy
If you'd like recommendations of Homeopathic Drs in the UK let me know and i'll pm you the info
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses highly diluted natural substances to relieve symptoms.
Principles of Homeopathy:
Homeopathy derives from the Greek words homeo, meaning “similar,” and pathos, meaning “suffering”
(such as the pathology of a disease).
Homeopathy operates on a “like cures like” principle that has been used empirically for more than 200 years, and is now confirmed by an increasing number of research publications.
Translated, this means that a patient suffering from symptoms can be treated by micro-doses of a substance capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person.
Homeopathic medicines stimulate the body’s physiological reactions that restore health, with a very low risk of side effects due to the use of micro-doses.
An example of how homeopathic medicines work is the similarly of symptoms between a bee sting and a rash.
A bee sting swells and itches. If similar symptoms appear from perhaps hives, a rash or even another insect bite, the homeopathic medicine most appropriate to treat these symptoms is actually made from a tiny amount of a bee. Instead of masking symptoms, the medicine sends the body a signal to help it rebalance and heal.
Benefits of Homeopathic Medicines:
Natural — The active ingredients in homeopathic medicines are diluted plants, animals and minerals that relieve the same symptoms they cause at full strength (i.e., a micro-dose of coffee bean helps nervousness).
Scope of Use :— Similar to other over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, homeopathic medicines can be used to relieve symptoms of a wide range of acute health conditions such as allergies, coughs, colds, flu, stress, arthritis pain, muscle pain, and teething.
Efficacy :— Homeopathy has been used for more than 200 years, building a remarkable safety record and generating a great body of knowledge.
Quality-controlled :— Homeopathic medicines are manufactured according to the highest standards, complying with specifications of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and Drug Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Safe :— Homeopathic medicines are one of the safest choices for self-treatment.
