Migraine Headaches and Homeopathic Treatment:
Migraine headaches are one of homeopathy’s most successfully treated conditions. Migraine headaches usually come at intervals, with complete freedom of pain between the attacks. They can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The pain is severe and can be incapacitating. For some people, the headache is followed by feelings of depression and irritability, as well as increased sensitivity to light and noise. A classic migraine is preceded by what some see as an “aura,” during which the individual can feel light-headed and have a reduced field of vision, and may see flashing lights. The headaches usually start on one side of the head, and can be accompanied by nausea, abdominal discomfort, and sometimes vomiting.
Nearly 20 percent of all women and 10 percent of all men suffer from migraines, and most of them have a family history of the disorder. Some people may have daily attacks, others one every several months. The intensity and duration of the attacks may vary from one time to another. Though the symptoms vary, migraines always involve an abnormal constriction and swelling of the blood vessels in the head–constriction in the early warning phase, swelling concurrent with the pain.
Most Common Homeopathic remedies used for Migraines:
Natrum Muraticum, Belladonna, Ipecacuanha, Nux Vomica, Gelsemium, and Silica.
Insomnia and Homeopathic Treatment:
Insomnia Occasional periods of sleeplessness affect each of us at some time or another and it can be very frustrating to deal with. But what if you are constantly faced with this problem every night as you lie in bed? Do you fall asleep only to wake up shortly and be unable to go back to sleep? Do you go many nights or weeks with little or no sleep?
Male and females of all ages both tend to get insomnia, but it seems to be more common in women due to a history of depression and/or the beginning of menopause. The elderly also encounter insomnia with the advancing of age. The ability to sleep versus the need for sleep decreases in the elderly making them a prime candidate for poor quality sleep. The reason for the insomnia varies from person to person. Based on your individual symptoms of your sleeplessness whether it’s caused by hormonal changes, recurring thoughts that seem to always haunt you at 3am, or an overactive lifestyle, Homeopathy individualizes your treatment. No two people are treated alike and two people with insomnia will get different remedy treatments due to the fact that their individual symptoms will be different from each other because causation of insomnia will be different. Waking times and sleep times will vary from person to person. How are they coping with their sleeplessness, are they angry? Are they weepy or are they irritable? All these factors are considered when selecting a homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathic Remedies for insomnia:
Coffea, Ignatia, Nux Vomica, Chamomilla
Menstrual Cramps and Homeopathy
Menstrual cramps are abdominal and pelvic pains that are experienced by a woman around the time of her menstrual period. Menstrual cramps are not the same as the discomfort felt during PMS although the symptoms of both disorders can sometimes be experienced as a continual process. Many women suffer from both PMS and menstrual cramps.
Menstrual cramps can range from mild to quite severe. Mild menstrual cramps may be barely noticeable and of short duration – sometimes felt just as a sense of light heaviness in the belly. Severe menstrual cramps can be so painful that they interfere with a woman’s regular activities for several days.
Homeopathic Remedies for Menstrual Cramps:
Belladonna, Chamomilla, Colocynthis, Lachesis, Magnesia Phosphorica.
