Pulsatilla and Aconite for Sciatica
For those with a more mild form of sciatica that is accompanied with fatigue, the homeopathic treatment known as pulsatilla should be used. This treatment works especially well for those who have aching pain that affects the hips and the loins. Those who will benefit from pulsatilla often have a feeling of heaviness in the legs that can sometimes make it difficult or uncomfortable to walk.
Another homeopathic treatment, known as aconite, should be used for those who have sciatica that is brought on by exposure to cold temperatures. This treatment works best for those with a numbness that affects the legs, that is often accompanied with a pricking-like pain, which tends to worsen throughout the night. Those who will benefit from aconite often have a tingling sensation that occurs in the affected area of the nerve.
Nux Vomica and Belladonna for Sciatica
The homeopathic treatment known as nux vomica should be taken by those who have sciatica that is characterized with sudden, sharp pains that are accompanied with sudden twitching or jerking of the affected legs. This treatment works best for those who have pain that is very severe and tends to change positions along the legs. Those who will benefit from nux vomica often have a sharp pain that shoots through the leg into the foot. It’s also common for those who will benefit from nux vomica to have legs that feel stiff.
Belladonna is a homeopathic treatment that should be taken by those who have sciatica that is accompanied with inflammation. Belladonna works best for those who have pain that tends to come on very suddenly. Those who will benefit from this treatment, according to health magazine optinghealth, often have pain that worsens when they try to change positions when lying in bed at night and feel pain when anything even lightly touches the affected area.
Homeopathic treatments can be very effective in helping to relieve sciatica. However, these treatments should not be used to replace medical attention and any necessary medical treatment. It’s important to treat the underlying cause of sciatica, rather than just focus on relieving the pain.
