Dr Oz: Homeopathy

70 million people suffer from pain every daily from persistent aches in their muscles to joint pain that lasts months or even a lifetime.  There are conventional Dr Oz Homeopathic Medicinetreatments for pain like physical therapy, surgery, prescriptions and cortisone shots.  But there are also solutions which could be safer and cheaper – these are the Alternative Treatments of the future!  A lady in Dr Oz’s audience said that she heard of Homeopathic Medicine to relieve aches and pains, but she wants to know what is it exactly and how does it work?

Dr Oz: Homeopathic Medicine

Dr Russ Greenfield, Integrative Medicine and Emergency Room Specialist, said that Homeopathy is one of the most controversial alternative remedies.  By using very small and diluted amounts of medication, Homeopathy tries to treat illnesses.  The idea is that by using something that might cause a symptom in a healthy person, it might heal someone who already suffers from that problem, and some studies show that Homeopathic Medicine does really work.

    i have been doing this for years . it is quick and simple. people that i have given this to are shocked to find out what it is and they get immediate relief. its simple and portable. can use anywhere there is a microwave. make sure the micro does not have an oder. or the sock and rice will retain that oder

    My family and I use homeopathic products. I too swear by Arnica.
    One day my 4 year old son ran full speed straight into the side of an open car door…that long piece of metal got him right in the middle of his forehead. He was so excited that his daddy was home he wasn’t paying attention to where he was going. Within a few short minutes he had a bump on his head the size of a golf ball. My husband ran for the ice pack, I ran for the arnica tablets. My son wasn’t about to let his dad put ice on his head but while he was screaming with his mouth wide open I dropped a few tablets in his mouth. He didn’t even know what I did. Within 20 minutes that golf ball of a knott was completely gone and all that was left was a one inch mark.
    This is why my family and I believe in homeopathic remidies :)

    The sock and rice heat treatment also works wonders for women that are breast feeding and get mastitis.
    get a small sock, fill with 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, tie shut, put in the mircrwave for about 30 seconds at a time. You DO NOT want it hot. You want the rice sock to be warm. Place the sock in your bra where the plugged milk duct is, this area will be tender and feel like a knot under the skin. make sure to completely cover that area with the warm sock. leave on untill it is no longer warm and then reheat and apply again if needed.

    I was born in Homeopathic Hospital (no longer named that) and had a Homeopath/MD Pediatrician. As an adult I have always had my homeo pharmacy. I recently had an injury at the gym where the resistance tube with handles slipped off my foot and slammed into my face at 50 mph. I hit the eye, cheek bone and occipital bone. Most pain I have had in years.

    Since they didn’t have an ice pack, I put a cold bottle of water on it while driving home (5 minutes). I immediately got out the Arnica and took it as prescribed (every 4 hours?). I never had any swelling or brusing, but I did have a corneal abrasion.

    Now mostly use Natra-Bio products ffor the most common ailments and I find it easier to reccommend to people who have never heard of homeopathy, since they are labelled like, Allergy, head cold, chest cold, sinus, etc. The Latin names seem to scare people off. In this case I used Buiron Arnica Montana, but I have trouble getting the pills out of their tube. I ahve to shake it, which is not good.

    I recently had oupatient surgery, 4 procedures, for varicose veins. The upper legs were treated with VNUS Closure and lower legs with micro phlebotomy. My expert vascular surgeon recommended the Boiron oral med beginning 2 days before micro stripping and I loved it. Much less bruising, quick healing & my chronic tight muscles in my neck felt improved! I need to talk to my doc cause I used three bottles and am concerned if it’s safe to continue, but I’d like to for my neck.
