Whilst homeopathy is still greatly distrusted by many in the medical profession, there are homeopathic remedies for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that can still bring relief to many people who suffer from this condition.
If you choose this route – and for many sufferers, it tends to be a last resort – it’s crucial that you find an experienced homeopath who is able to diagnose remedies based on an unbiased appraisal of you and the symptoms you present.
Whist it’s easy enough to obtain homeopathic remedies, self diagnosis of ME/CFS symptoms is not advisable as it’s very difficult to observe yourself objectively.
An experienced homeopath will address such things as physical, emotional and psychological factors that may be affecting you, before making any recommendations for appropriate remedies – which means that each individual will invariably have a unique combination of homeopathic remedies.
Invariably the homeopathic remedies for ME/CFS rarely involve the use of just one remedy to provide a permanent solution.
However, there are several homeopathic remedies for ME/CFS that are commonly dispensed by professional homeopaths that make up what is, basically, an ME/CFS “first aid kit” of homeopathic remedies. These include:
Kali Phos – used for mental tiredness coupled with nervous exhaustion and nervous indigestion.
Your symptoms become worse when you’re exposed to noise, excitement, physical exertion and worry.
Gelsemium – is a classic remedy for flu-like symptoms, including heavy, aching muscles and. trembling.
Particularly suited to people who worry excessively about what may happen and who are unable to cope with everyday life.
Nux Vom – is generally used for people who have an impatient and irritable attitude. With ME/CFS, this can in many cases be as a result of the symptoms of headaches, sore throat, joint pain, muscle tension and sleeping difficulties.
Iris Versicolour – is not readily available except from a homeopath. This remedy is generally associated with migraine headaches, but for ME/CFS it is an effective remedy for those affected by fatigue with irritability, mental exhaustion from overwork, a sore throat and memory weakness.
Hypericum – is used for prickly pain – often unbearable – that radiates along the nerve pathways. It’s particularly useful if this type of pain is in the extremities of the body.
It is worth noting that, if the remedy is correctly prescribed, the symptoms will become worse (in some cases much worse) before they get better and it must be re-iterated here that homeopathy is a specialized field and for best results a professional homeopath should be consulted.
These are just a few of the many homeopathic remedies for ME/CFS that can be used either on their own, or in combination, to relieve the symptoms and may bring comfort to someone who is carrying the burden of this debilitating condition.
