  • treating a herniated disk with homeopathy

    I have a friend who has "a herniated disc at L3/4 that is impinging a nerve"
    and is out of work (as a yoga teacher) because of it. My brother-in-law just
    missed a trimester of teaching because of similar problem. I am wondering
    whether folks on the list have treated that "diagnosis" with good success.
    I'm not sure I can persuade either friend or brother-in-law to try
    homeopathy, but armed with some information about treatment success, I might
    be able to. Teresa (Northern VA, USA)

    RE: treating a herniated disk with homeopathy

    Hi Teresa,

    I have a 'bad' back and have treated my slipped disks and pinched nerves
    for decades with homeopathy. Sometimes the successes are spectacular
    (sometimes not.) The challenge with these injuries is that the muscles
    surrounding the area where the nerve is pinched tense up in order to
    prevent further pain/injury. The net effect is that the subluxation is
    maintained or worsened. So the first challenge is to relax these
    muscles. The next is to keep the weight off _for as long as it takes_
    to heal the injury. I have learned to drop everything at the first sign
    of pain and lie down on a flat, hard surface until the muscles relax
    enough to realign the vertebrae. I choose the medicines based on the
    location of the injury and my miasmatic picture. Asa Hersoff (I have no
    doubt misspelled this) has a book on Healing Musculoskeletal Injuries.

      I have found NUCCA chiropractic to be the best at treating back and
      especially whiplash related injuries.
      Check out NUCCA.org.

        In accidental slipped disc, first thing is to do is to remove inflammation of the bone that is preventing the disc to go back to its original position. As for as the inflammation of the bone is healed, it will be easy to push back the disc at its original position. Find symptoms related with bone inflammation.

          I've had herniated discs C3-5 since an auto accident which will occasionally
          'flare-up' (inflame) causing radiating nerve pain, burning pain, sciatica,
          you name it! The last time I had a flare-up (after some way too vigorous
          gardening, believe it or not), I took a dose of Arnica 200 and it worked
          like magic. But, it only makes sense, really...after all, the damage was
          originally caused by an accident, right? I don't know what caused your
          friends injury, but if it was an accident (doing yoga too "vigorously"? ),
          it's possible Arnica could help...
          Good luck to you, Teresa!
