Role of Homeopathy in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Role of Homeopathy in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

As we know now that RA is a progressive disease and it can lead to severe disability and even death.

The role of homeopathy lies in the fact that it can bring back the lost balance in the human body which is in a diseased state. Homeopathic remedies act at the psycho neuro endocrinal axis. In other words it stimulates the human body which in turn will take care of the disease.

So the first step in treating RA is a correct case history. Human body is a complex network and the human mind can play a major role in defining any disease. So we have to know the emotional nature in details all the events that have happened which have affected the patient have to be mentioned in details.

The patients should give all the details avoiding any conflicts. As the homeopath believe to treat the man in disease and not the disease in man. The emotional aspect, intellectual attainments any conflicts have to be explained to the best of patient’s ability. As it is important to know the causative factor that has brought in the present situation.

In homeopathy the symptoms are listed in a book known as a repertory. (It is an index of symptoms and the remedies that can cure that symptom are noted.)So if we take for e.g. the extremity chapters from any repertory and search for the patient’s symptoms we can get the exact symptom or the similar expression and the remedies which are listed against these symptoms have the capacity to cure them. In addition to this we have sophisticated homeopathic software’s which help to go through the huge database and find the right expression of the disease.

If we consider a remedy say Calcarea flur in this remedy we find the symptoms of erosion of joints, cracking of the joints, destruction is as if the theme of the remedy. At the mental level the patient is very aggressive, angry and destructive. So this remedy has the capacity to act in diseases which have progressed to the level of destruction and when it is given in the indicated case it will relieve the patient at the physical as well as at the mental level.

So we have to understand that the homeopathic remedies act at a very deep level and if the line of treatment is managed properly we can get amazing results.
