8 out of 10 people have back problems. They are especially common as we age. They may be temporary back pains caused by an accident or stress. They may be long term chronic problems caused by a wide range of mechanical causes, ranging from poor habits to damage or deterioration of the spine.
Many people with back problems can be helped with homeopathy.
Here are a couple of examples of people we helped.
Donald had many back problems , both from injury and from overwork. Then he played football and “broke” his back. He had a compression fracture of L1. This caused extreme pain, stabbing like a knife. If he took enough painkillers to handle the pain, he was then unable to work. The pain went on for weeks. The orthopedic surgeon didn’t help and the chiropractor didn’t help. He tended to be someone who could handle pain but he couldn’t stand this.
He also had other symptoms including no appetite, coldness and a cough.
Based upon this and many other symptoms we gave him a dose of Lycopodium (note this was the right remedy for him but the possibility of it being the right remedy for another person with back problems is very low).
By one month the pain was 50% better and continued decreasing till it was gone. Also emotionally things improved, he became much more patient and relaxed and happier.
Here is another example:
Brad had back surgery for 3 bulging disks in his lower back. Also his disk canals were small and didn’t leave enough room for the nerves. He had surgery which gave back feeling in his leg but left numbness and pain. The pain was a stabbing shooting pain which was worse when sitting and better when lying and moving helped it.
He was raised to be very responsible. He tended to be hot tempered. He is easily upset, raising his voice and cursing. He also had headaches and kidney stones and kidney pain.
Based upon this and many other symptoms we gave him a dose of Carboneum Sulphuricum (note this was the right remedy for him but the possibility of it being the right remedy for another person with back problems is very low).
At one month he reported that his back felt much better. He surprised himself by going back to playing golf- he is hitting the ball further and straighter than ever before. His hot temper he was still aware of but he never lost control.
Over the next year his back no longer bothered him more than slightly. He had no headaches or kidney pain. His energy increased. He was much less angry and frustrated.
In these examples you see the difference between homeopathy and other approaches for treatment of back problems. After the right remedy we expect to see everything getting better in the person's life.
