Physical Health Conditions Helped with Homeopathy
There are many conditions that I see in my clinic. Here are some examples to illustrate some of these cases that have been successfully treated with homeopathic medicine.
Click on any one of them to take you to that particular case history to see what the case was like and the response after treatment:
Female aged 23rys old
Presents with skin eruptions due to an allergic susceptibility to pollens, wheat and oats. She would get eruptions on her arms, neck and around her eyes with a red rash. The skin would also become blotchy and itchy.
She is also prone to hayfever with sneezing and itchy eyes. She needs to take an anti-histamine to relieve these symptoms.
When she gets tired at work she can also have periods of dizziness and slight headaches.
Emotionally she is sensitive and takes things to heart.
Over a four month period her skin eruptions, hayfever and dizziness all cleared up. She stopped her anti-histamines and felt great with-in herself.
Homeopathic medicine is excellent in treating acute conditions especially coughs and bronchial afflictions. Here are a couple of cases to illustrate such conditions:
Female, aged 34yrs.
About one week ago developed a sore throat that has now become a cold. However, for the last seven weeks has had an uncontrollable cough. It will wake her up. There is no pain with the cough. The submandibular glands are swollen on both sides. When she swallows she gets a painful sensation that goes to her ears then passes.
She can keep coughing until she gags at the end. This can last up to five minutes. She can cough up a very small amount of mucus. She coughs so much that she ends up burping or gagging. The attacks come on any time during the day as well as when she goes to sleep. She gets a tickling sensation in the throat before the attack of coughing. There is also tightness on the right side of the throat.
When the cough developed seven weeks ago she had to go to hospital because it was so bad. She also had a very tender abdomen. The coughing was worse then, more intense, still with no expectoration and with big burps at the end of the coughing fit, she says “so loud, earth shattering”. This is not as bad now.
She has a tendency to sinus infections with swollen glands for the last five years. She is prone to frequent head colds that go into the chest.
When she becomes upset or feels vulnerable she enjoys the comfort of having someone with her.
She started her homeopathic medicine and within her a few days her cough gradually started it improve. After a week she was much better with all symptoms clearing up.

Mrs C. R. aged 47yrs.
Has an ongoing tickling cough. Had almost lost her voice for the last six weeks, she can only whisper now. Her cough began around two months ago, it is worse in the morning, around 4pm and early evening.
The cough comes in spasms. It is a dry cough, which irritates the throat, feeling like there is something stringy hanging in the back of the throat that makes her want to cough. If she does cough hard enough though, she can expectorate some stringy white mucus. At times she can vomit at the end of a coughing fit. This can happen 3 – 4 times per day. She can feel better for around an hour then the coughing is worse again. She finds it difficult to stop coughing once she has started as she keeps going and going until it eventually stops. This paroxysm will again recur a little later on. She always feels exhausted after the coughing fits.
The throat always feels very itchy. She has breathlessness with the cough, as though she is experiencing asthma but has no history of asthma.
She can wake 3 – 4 times in the night with these coughing fits. She is sensitive to changes in the weather and to the extremes of hot and cold. She has become very irritable because she can’t get rid of her symptoms feeling desperate about it.
She was given her medicine over a couple of weeks with the cough gradually disappearing altogether.

Female, Mrs R. aged 46yrs old.
Presenting complaints: Severe headaches and allergies to wheat, dairy.
The headaches can last up to a week, or they can be for around a day, usually though, they are for around 4 – 5 days. They occur around the forehead or occiput with a stiffness of the neck. They are neuralgic in character on the left side of the head producing a pain that shoots into the eye socket.
She can’t function with these headaches, the eyesight becomes blurry, she can’t concentrate or think clearly and she also becomes clumsy. Her energy also drops with the headaches. She can’t stand any noise or bright lights.
She has tried going off foods for the last 2 months: Wheat, dairy, tuna, prawns, celery, chocolate, coffee. She tried again to eat these foods and it was like a killer because of the headaches were worse again.
She has had the headaches for around 15yrs since she had endometriosis.
She had an hysterectomy without removing the ovaries. A year later she developed a lump in her left breast, it was benign, and removed. Since then she has had four other lumps that have come up and were removed. There is still a new lump that has now developed.
She had fallen out of her bed whilst asleep and rupturing two discs in her lower back. Since then she has had sciatica.
She has feelings that when she walks alone she gets the feeling as though she can hear footsteps, as though there is someone behind her. It makes her very scared, it’s as if she will be attacked, even though it has never happened in the past.
Her thinking is not very good. She has very poor clarity of thought, she can’t put two and two together. She can’t make the link between things, unless if someone can put it together for her. She has a fear of being alone. She is also prone to being depressed, especially when she is having headaches or not feeling well.
This patient had treatment for over two years helping her to address the headaches, allergies, sciatic pains and depression. The headaches immediately responded to the medicine, their frequency, duration and intensity all diminished eventually stopping. Her sensitivity to the foods she was allergic to resolved so that she was able to eat those foods without reacting. The neuralgic pains gradually improved having periods of ups and downs. Now they were much better.
What also became apparent during the course of treatment was some forgotten memories that lay there as an underlying trigger for her conditions. These memories returned that had been repressed about her ex-husband beating her when in her late teens. She was able to connect with the feelings of anger about these experiences and to be able to let it go. This helped give some explanation to those fears she previously had that were unexplained, now she could understand their context. Her depression resolved feeling more emotionally balanced and at peace.

Female aged 35yrs old.
Presenting with terrible P.M.S. that is getting worse as she gets older. What is most troubling for this patient are her mood swings. For around two weeks before her menstrual cycle her moods become much more extreme. She is either weeping, becoming aggressive or depressed. She feels that her moods are unstable and unpredictable. Her husband and family can’t handle it anymore and want them controlled as they all don’t know what to do. It has been suggested she try the pill but doesn’t want to use drugs because of what they do to her body.
During these two weeks she feels these moods just come out of the blue, and she will just become angry for seemingly no reason, however feeling justified within herself about them.
She also gets marked bloating, breast tenderness, headaches and nausea before her periods. During the heavy flow she gets cramps, lower back pain and feels drained. Emotionally she starts to feel better. This will last for about two weeks then it all starts again. The menstrual cycle itself is also irregular that can be between 32-42days.
These symptoms have been with her since her twenties, coming and going. Last year she needed anti-depressants and psychotherapy which temporarily helped, however, for the last six months things are getting worse again.
This patient had treatment only for a short time as she had to leave for overseas because of her husband’s work. It was sufficient for her to have a number of cycles with the first being much calmer with no anger. Still reactionary a bit, as well as teary, moody and sensitive. Her energy, headaches, nausea and pains all much better.
Subsequent cycles continued with this trend so that physically and mentally she was feeling very good within herself. Her cycle though was still long but this was starting to normalise. She would need more on-going treatment but was able to leave for over-seas feeling like she could handle this next phase of her life.
Female in her late 30yrs presented with hives for the last four years. The symptoms were gradually getting worse. Now she was getting concerned, as nothing could be done to stop this recurrence. She had tried various medications from her doctor, as well as different types of naturopathic treatments all to no avail.
In summer the symptoms were very bad, occurring on her arms and legs and especially when ever she became over-heated. Each year the hives started earlier, were lasting longer and spreading faster. Large welts develop that were intensely itching. She described the itch as though she “Could just rip the skin off” as she just had to keep scratching and scratching to relieve it.
She was also prone to hay fever with watery eyes, running nose and sneezing; and asthma that she had for over 20yrs.
She described herself as a “stress-head”. She couldn’t relax, and had the tendency to fixate on things which only made her stressed even more. She was always feeling harassed, had to get things done and felt guilty if she hadn’t. She had low confidence doubting herself in what she was doing or if she was doing something new. She had thoughts that people thought she was stupid. When she got really stressed she was prone to developing migraines.
After the first couple of months the hives and hay fever stopped, even in the heat of summer there was no recurrence. She continued treatment managing her general health over the course of nearly a year to assist with coping better with her stress levels and assisting with the headaches/migraines. Treatment was stopped as she was happy with her overall progress.
Female in her mid 50s suffered with a chronic cough. She had been to the doctors and specialists who had given her CAT scans, Ultra sound and Barium meals to try and find out why she had this cough but nothing could be established. She just coughs and this had been going on for the last few years.
She woke with a lot of green thick phlegm. During the day she had a tickle in the throat that triggered the cough. She could then keep coughing and eventually it would stop, but then come back again. This keeps happening all day and it was driving her “demented”. No one knew what it was or why it kept recurring.
She tended to get breathless if she exercised or walked too fast, this can also aggravate the cough. There was also a post-nasal drip that can triggered the cough.
She was becoming more and more irritable with this cough as it was affecting her work. She needed to talk in her job and present business projects. So this cough was the last thing she needed as it stopped her presenting in a professional manner.
After the first visit there was a huge improvement in her cough. She also felt remarkably calmer and less irritated in herself. Her breathlessness and post-nasal drip was also better.
She was treated over six weeks with homeopathic medicine with the cough gradually disappearing with the added bonus that she was coping better with the stress at work.
