How homeopathy can help cluster headache sufferers
Cluster headaches are different from migraines. This is a severe, painful disorder where the pain is located at the back of the eye, often causing it to weep. Pains come on in clusters and each episode lasts from 10-30 minutes, but the intensity of the pain is known to be one of the most painful that you can ever experience.
One such sufferer was JM, a 64-year-old male who had suffered for over eight years before turning to homeopathy. He frequently experienced two to three attacks a day, making his life a misery. Doctors prescribed strong painkillers and steroids, which halted the pain, but the attacks would return more aggressively. Needless to say, the medication also came with some side effects.
JM was treated with a homeopathic remedy that fitted his individual symptoms but was also given homeopathic remedies to detox the medication and to cleanse his liver. JM also took maximum doses of magnesium supplements, along with regular bathing in Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). Recent studies have shown that headache sufferers often have a magnesium deficiency.
Within weeks, things started to improve as the pains became less severe and less frequent, but within a few months JM was completely headache-free and had come off all his medications. He finally got his life back and his health improved on all levels.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the body to re-balance and repair. Those familiar with homeopathy will have come across the concept of treating ‘like with like’. JM’s chosen remedy for the cluster headaches, according to his individual symptoms, was made from a substance that, in its purest form, would create a severe headache, but once ultra diluted in water and prepared into a homeopathic remedy, it becomes a safe and a non toxic solution; thereby treating ‘like with like’ had the desired effect.
