Homeopathy for Arthritis

Homeopathy for Arthritis

Use of homeopathic remedies is on the rise by Arthritis patients looking for a break from chronic, painful persistent symptoms. A professional Homeopath can guide you to choose a remedy to treat your Arthritis as well as address any underlying causes that may be exacerbating the symptoms. Read on to find out more.

Whilst symptoms vary between the different Arthritis types, common symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Joint stiffness
  • Joint cartilage damage
  • Joint weakness
  • Joint instabilities
  • Deformities

Homeopathy for Arthritis

Whilst science is yet to provide the evidence, Homeopathic remedies have been anecdotally reported in effectively relieving Arthritis symptoms when used in conjunction with traditional medical care.

Homoeopathy is a system of remedies that are based on the belief that tiny amounts of natural substances can be used to stimulate the body’s own defenses against a disease, in this case, arthritis

A professional Homeopath will always consider the Arthritis patient’s constitutional type, physiological make up, emotional state and level of well being before going ahead and prescribing a remedy. They will always assess the patient as a whole to determine the most appropriate, tailored healing approach for the individual.
