Arthritis can be treated very effectively by Homeopathy, listed below are just a few remedies which can be prescribed. Homeopathy works by addressing the uniqueness and totality of a persons symptoms.
The homeopathic treatment of chronic arthritis, whether osteoarthritis, rheumatoid, or another form, can be quite effective. The best time to initiate homeopathic treatment of arthritis is very early in the course of the disease. It is typically a complicated process that requires the expertise of a professional homeopath to assess the whole person. The most severe cases of arthritis, where the damage to the joints is too substantial to be reversed, are incurable. In some instances, however, it is possible to successfully treat arthritis at home.
Try the remedies below for treatment at home, but be sure to follow up with a homeopathic professional if you don’t see any improvement:
Bryonia: pains are worse from the slightest motion, better after rest. Pains are also better from pressure or by lying on the painful side.
Caulophyllum: arthritis in women, of the small joints, particularly the fingers, hands, toes, and sometimes the ankles. Pain and stiffness can alternate from one joint to another every minute. Small joint problems plus uterine difficulties.
Colchicum: arthritis worse during warm, wet weather, although sometimes cold, damp weather can cause complaints. Worse with the change of seasons. The hands and fingers are most affected; the pains are worse from slight motion. Often associated with other ailments, like nephritis, blood in the urine, and pericarditis. Aversion to the odor of eggs and fish is a strong symptom sometimes seen.
Guaiacum: rheumatic affections of the small joints, especially the wrists and fingers, worse from warmth, and better from cold applications.
Kali bichromicum: periodic arthritis and arthritis alternating with other complaints (e.g. sinusitis, asthma, digestive disorders). Periodicity is often fixed (e.g. every spring or autumn, etc.). The pain is often in one small spot, and may wander to different sites and come and go suddenly; pain may occur every day at the same time; pain is worse between 2 and 4am.
Ledum: painful swelling relieved by cold applications and made worse by warmth. Areas especially affected are ankles, feet, ball of the first toe, and left shoulder and right hip together. “Rheumatism” starts in the legs and extends upwards.
Rhus tox: pain and stiffness. Stiffness is very characteristic. The pain is worse when at rest, with weather changes, especially to cold, damp; by cold; and by initial motion (e.g. rising from a bed or a seat). The pains are helped by warmth and continued motion (once “warmed up”). Restlessness with the pain. Complaints are often left-sided.
Rhododendron: all symptoms are much worse before a storm. Restlessness of the legs. Crosses legs in sleep.
Ruta: especially useful for arthritis beginning after trauma (fracture, sprain, bruise). A “lam” feeling in the joints. Ankle and wrist are often involved. Person has marked restlessness and wants to frequently change position. Leg pains on rising from sitting (as if broken). Back pain better lying on back. Pains are better from motion, but person may become exhausted after walking.

Treating Hayfever, Asthma and other Seasonal Irritants Energetically.....
It’s that time of year as the season’s change that you may experience symptoms of hay-fever or other irritants aggravating the nose, ears, throat, sinuses, skin and respiratory system. We are all aware how different pollens are released from tree blossoms, grass, even agricultural crops and how these can affect us in many different ways. Air pollution seems to be a very real growing concern within our cities and communities which can hit the respiratory system hard, causing difficulties in breathing contributing to symptoms of asthma and other more serious lung disorders.
Allergies are due to an aggressive immune response by the body and can be triggered by many different irritants. Homeopathy can help alleviate many aggravating symptoms by working naturally with the body’s own vital force, nudging it back to health and vitality, without any nasty side effects. If annual symptoms of hay-fever are dealt with out of season the results can be more noticeable, where many patients symptoms not only reduce over a small period of time, but can with careful prescribing completely vanish.
There are many remedies which treat ears, nose, throat and respiratory symptoms expressed during an acute attack of hay fever, and I will include some examples below, however I have personally found that treating a person constitutionally has a deeper longer lasting effect.
Homeopathy is an energetic medicine where traces of plant, mineral or an animal’s energy still remains, when this is closely matched against the vibrational characteristics presented by a person a deep, profound healing takes place.
Treating yourself with homeopathy during an acute phase of hay fever is easy as long as you know which remedy matches your symptoms. Relief with the correct remedy is usually rapid, sometimes within minutes and all remedies are considered safe for use during pregnancy and with babies through to the elderly when taken according to instructions.
It is my continued understanding that many symptoms expressed by the body manifest from not only environmental factors but also mental and emotional behaviours expressed from a person. This can be due to the way we express or suppress our emotions due to many situations such as loss/grief or abuse of some kind.
Every being is an individual and deals with emotions differently therefor it is my role as a Homeopath to prescribe a remedy which suits the individual characteristics of a person’s mental/emotional and physical symptomology. With continued guidance and support the client returns to their desired level of health. However my role as an energy healer may seem more subtle it too has huge benefits, where the body’s vital energy force can be gently guided back into alignment. Personally I have had amazing results from using Reiki/Seichem energy alongside the powerful energies of Australian Bush Flower Essences for many ailments.
The usual symptoms of hay-fever are sneezing, runny nose, watery itchy eyes, nose, asthma, post nasal drip, fogginess and headaches.
Common homeopathic remedies for hay fever
Allium cepa (All-c.)This remedy, prepared from the red onion, treats the symptom of streaming eyes and nose that is worse in warm and stuffy rooms. (People who need All-c may even crave and feel better for eating onions.) Their nasal discharge burns while tears from the eyes are bland – the opposite to Euphrasia’s symptoms. Sneezing can be intense and frequent and eyes are sensitive to the light.
Arsenicum album (Ars.)This is one of the best remedies for hay fever. Burning or itching in the nose, eyes or throat being a strong indication. The discharges from both eyes and nose will be burning (but check to make sure that Allium cepa or Euphrasia are not better indicated – Euphrasia has the opposite symptoms). An improvement of the symptoms in the open air, although sensitive to light, is usually an indication for this remedy.
Euphrasia (Euphr.) A classic remedy for hay fever where, again, there is lots of sneezing with streaming eyes and nose. If the water from the eyes burns the cheeks and the discharge from the nose is not too bad, this remedy is needed. (Allium cepa has the opposite symptoms). The remedy is indicated if the symptoms improve in the open air – obviously away from pollen. Sensitivity to light may be apparent in both Euphrasia and Allium cepa.
Natrum muriaticum (Nat-m.) Initially, there is a streaming, bland discharge from both the eyes and nose with lots of sneezing. Later, there is nasal discharge that is thick and clear like the white of an egg with loss of taste and smell. This is not one of the main remedies for hay fever but it can bring great relief to the type who gets easily burned, feel generally miserable, uncomfortable, blotchy and irritated in the sun.
Nux vomica (Nux-v.) This is one of the best remedies for when there is lots of sneezing, streaming from the eyes and nose, and an irritable, nasty mood. (If they are sweet tempered, it is unlikely to help.) The symptoms are worse in dry air and relieved when the atmosphere is damp.
Pulsatilla nigricans (Puls.) The main indications for this remedy are a weepy, needy state of mind, together with discharges that are thick, bland (not acrid) and green or yellow. Pulsatilla frequently has one side of the nose blocked or congested.
Sulphur (Sulph.) Watery, burning nasal discharge or a blocked nose, when outside. There is frequent sneezing. Blocking of nose on alternate sides. Burning pain in eyes. All symptoms are worsened by warmth and becoming warm in bed. Better for being in open air. May be lazy, opinionated and desire sweets, alcohol, and spicy food.
Less commonly used remedies for hay fever
Ambrosia artemisaefolia (Ambro.) Intolerable itching and watering from burning eyes. Sneezing and watery nasal discharge. Nose and head feel stuffy. Nose bleeds.
Arum triphyllum (Arum-t .)Irritation or itching in the nose leading to boring, picking and rubbing. May pick at lips and face. Throat, mouth, tongue, and palate may burn, making it difficult to eat or drink despite having a thirst. People who need Arum-t may experience concurrent hoarseness and peeling or chapping of the lips.
Histaminum ( Hist.)Consider this remedy when either no other remedy seems accurate or if other remedies have been tried and haven’t worked.
Kali bichromicum ( Kali-bi.) Consider this remedy when thick, stringy, green or yellowish mucus from the nose or throat is present. There may also be a post-nasal or pain at the root of the nose relieved by hard pressure.
Sabadilla officinarum (Sabad.) Hay fever with frequent, spasmodic sneezing that exhausts the person. Sneezing from tickling inside the nose and sneezing that causes the eyes to water. There is profuse, watery nasal discharge with red and burning eyelid margins. Symptoms are worse in the open air, better in a warm room. Dry mouth but little thirst.
Solidago ( Solid.) There are burning, stinging eyes. Paroxysms of sneezing with mucus discharge from nose. This is one of the main remedies for people allergic to house dust mite.
Wyethia helenoides (Wye)
Tremendous itching of the upper palate of the mouth causing the person to make “clucking” noises in effort to provide some relief. Itching of the nose and throat, along with a constant desire to swallow saliva to relieve the dryness may also be present.
