Treatment for the Elderly


Joint Stiffness, Lameness and Arthritis

decreases; It becomes increasingly difficult and painful to get up or walk.

Ignatia is a neurological remedy offering psychological relief helping to overcome loss and adjust to a new situation.

 

Aches & Pains

Palliation for the End of Life

There comes a time at lifes end for some when only palliation can be attempted. Homeopathy is unique in this area of care on two accounts

-         Homeopathic Constitutional prescribing treats the whole person not just a specific condition. These remedies will be effective even when used as a complementary therapy together with any conventional treatment. They can bring peace, repose and dignity to a situation of high emotion.

-         The LM range of Homeopathic potencies is gentler than any other comparable mediacation and have been administered safely up to the final moments without rejection or side effects.


Case Studies
1. Prostrate Cancer

Opiumin high potency was prescribed with excellent results for a seemingly moribund semi comatose diabetic elderly man with prostate cancer, severe constipation, and painless abdominal distension. He was given up by doctors and his wife told to prepare herself for an imminent end. However under Homeopathy he enjoyed an alert and reasonable standard of life for a further 6 months.  At the time of his death his doctor opined: There must be something in this Homeopathy after all.
(Fior, T.W., J American Institute of Homeopathy 1999, 93.2)
