Homeopathic Medicine can be an excellent treatment therapy for those with Fibromyalgia. There are several different remedies which can help alleviate the pain, sleep deprivation, and depression associated with this condition. However, it is also important to note that the success of each individual case will differ dependent upon several factors, such as age, the severity of the illness, and quantity of treatments.
The first remedy worth discussing is Arnica. While it is not a feasible long-term solution for Fibromyalgia, it can be quite effective for those suffering from aching, or throbbing pains in the muscles. A potency of 30CH, twice a day will suffice.
The next remedy is Bryonia. This prescription is particularly successful in cases where the individual is suffering from stitching or tearing pains in their muscles and ligaments. It is also an excellent remedy for the confusion or “brain fog” associated with the condition. Medium to low doses, such as 30CH or 200CH, are best but this may vary depending on the case.
Calcarea carbonica is another excellent remedy for Fibromyalgic symptoms. It is prescribed when the patient suffers from muscle soreness and weakness. Calcarea cases also experience fatigue with great ease, as well as feeling overwhelmed.
Causticum is also worth mentioning. This remedy is recommended for those who have stiffness in the muscles which worsens with the cold. It is also a good treatment for muscles that constantly feel contracted, as well as restless legs. Low or medium potencies are the most common prescription.
For individuals who have a general feeling of restlessness combined with stiffness and soreness, Rhus-tox is a great remedy. It is also suggested for those who experience the most pain in the morning, and who feel alleviated with movement, such as walking or stretching. Once again, medium or low doses are best.
All cases of Fibromyalgia are different, and each treatment must be tailored to each specific patient. The use of medium or low doses when treating this condition serves a direct purpose; in almost all cases, Fibromyalgia is a chronic issue, meaning that treatment may be prolonged. Taking this into consideration, it is best to prescribe lower doses of homeopathic medicine over a longer period of time, so as not to over-stimulate the body too quickly (which would render the remedy ineffective). By treating the case slowly and with lower doses, the progress of the patient can be carefully monitored, and any necessary adjustments can be made.
