I often get asked if homeopathy works for pain. In my experience and many peoples experience the answer is, yes. This reply is often met with another question, ‘But it takes a long time doesn’t it?’ Again, in my experience and that of many others, the answer is it takes no longer than a prescription drug to kick in. In some cases homeopathy even beats prescription pain meds in terms of being quick acting. Like any other condition, It’s all about getting the correct remedy and potency for the situation. The third response goes something like this, ‘But isn’t it just a placebo effect?’ Click on the links below to find out my friend…..
