Recently I have completed an advanced course in homeopathy for cardiology which taught us how to use single homeopathics and tinctures to improve the patient's symptoms. We have seen excellent results in those who have taken treatment for a variety of health issues. I came across a study that found that using single homeopathic remedies, that are matched to one's symptoms was 25% more effective than the use of a placebo.

Campistranous, Lavout JL., et al. Hypertension Trial, Boletin Mexicano, 1999, 32, 42 - 47. 68 people suffering from mild to moderate hypertension were enrolled in a double-blind randomized clinical trial comparing individualized homeopathic therapy with placebo. Successful results were obtained with 82% of those using homeopathy compared with 57% of those using placebo.

Over the years, in the clinic, we have seen a lot of children with ADD and ADHD symptoms. Some of these children's symptoms benefit from a constitutional homeopathic remedy. Other children do best with dietary changes, avoiding food sensitivities and supplementing with missing vitamins or minerals in their diet. Each child has a regime suited to their particular needs. Interestingly, a small study showed that children treated with single homeopathic remedies improved over the course of one year, whereas the other group of children that only received that same amount of time did not.

Gingivitis is thought to be caused by poor dental hygiene, smoking, alcoholism and mouth bacteria. Some people have no issues and their gums recede. It is important to head these symptoms off before they progress because skin grafts and loss of teeth may happen over time.

Some people who suffer from gingivitis may be deficient in vitamin C. It can cause bleeding and sore gums. Homeopathic remedies are suited to one's unique symptom picture. A few common remedies for gingivitis are:

  • Mercurius Cor. is suited to symptoms of swollen gums, red, spongy and ulcerated. They are tender and bleed easily. The gums are detached from the teeth and may be infected.
  • Kreosotum, is a remedy for inflamed gums that are ulcerated, bluish red, soft and spongy. They bleed easily and may contain a dark watery fluid.
  • Belladonna is useful for very painful swelling of the gums, especially on the right hand side. The gums may be ulcerated, bleed, feel burnt and are itchy.

Homeopathic medicines are great to keep on hand for instances of acute problems like food poisoning symptoms. The most common remedy I use in my practice is called Arsenicum Album. Its symptoms cover diarrhea accompanied by anxiety. One needing this remedy would be restless and desire small sips of drinks. There is a great weakness in people needing this remedy.

For symptoms of shellfish allergies, try URTICA URENS, unless on is anaphylactic, and then use an EPI pen or call 911. Urtica is useful for severe itching and hives from shellfish or strawberries. Also the remedy HOMARIS is good in particular for lobster sensitivities.

For symptoms of projectile vomiting, with diarrhea use VERATRUM ALBUM. It also suits the symptoms of weakness, cold sweats especially across the brow.

Homeopathy is suited to a person's symptoms of disease, not the disease name itself, but fainting is a loss of consciousness which should be investigated thoroughly by a doctor although typically a benign condition. An interesting book by Edward Shalts MD, D. Ht called "The American Institute of Homeopathy Handbook for Parents" mentions three remedies for fainting, although there are at least 50 in our repertory.

  • Carbo Veg. is a remedy that is appropriate for fainting where a child needs constant fanning and is improved by fresh air.
  • Chamomilla is a remedy for fainting from severe pain.
  • Coffea Cruda is a remedy for fainting from joy or excitement.

I work a full week, doing what I love, helping people regain health and vitality using homeopathy. Many people ask me what I do and they have no idea what homeopathy is. I typically see a follow up patient every hour or if they are new, their visit would be one and a half hours. Why I love my job is that homeopathy is so individualized that it takes a persons unique symptoms into consideration. Each person that comes gets a remedy based on their symptoms. This is an odd concept for people, they are always asking can I treat XY or Z disease. I do treat people with disease symptoms, but I base their remedy on their symptoms, rather than a disease name.

It is interesting that some people would never consider homeopathy for this or that condition. They just don't know that homeopathy is a complete and total medicine onto itself and it can stand alone without any other system of medicine's help. What I love most about my job? When I find that one remedy that is the best fit for a person, and all it took was these tiny pellets under the tongue to clear away their symptoms. In 17 years, the magic of the minimum dose never ceases to amaze me.
