BONE & JOINT DISORDERS (ARTHRITIS) – HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH
I. Cause of the disease
Before starting the treatment its important to understand the causative factor of Arthritis. Unless the cause is removed treatment will not be effective.
- Precipitating causes
These may include change in weather or exposure to cold air, heat, injury. These causes will also help in selecting homeopathic medicines. For example :
|Arthritis triggered by exposure to|
|Cold air||Ranunculus bulbosus|
|Cold dry wind||Hepar sulph|
|Cold damp air||Dulcamara, Rhus tox|
|Arthritis triggered by heat in summers|
|Arthritis caused by injury|
- Maintaining causes
This may include living in damp basements, occupational hazards act as an obstacle to cure. These result in the maintenance (continuation) of the disease and unless they are removed proper treatment cannot take place. Once the maintaining cause is removed the disease can be taken care of and medicines can be prescribed to the patient depending on his characteristic (individual) symptom picture. Rhus tox is one of the medicine used for arthritis caused from living in damp houses.
In case of suppression of certain discharge or condition in the body many homeopathic medicine can be helpful.
|from suddenly checked diarrhea||Abrotanum|
|from suppression of discharges||Mercurius solubilis|
|from suppression of gonorrhea||Clematis, Medorrhinum, Rhododendron|
|from suppression of sweat||Dulcamara, Rhus tox|
