Though muscular aches and pains in cold or damp weather are real enough to many elderly people, 'rheumatism' has no precise meaning. While conventional medicine prescribes anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers, homeopathic treatment is constitutional.
Rheumatism has been treated by homeopathy.
Rheumatism requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
