Homeopathic Treatment for Osteoarthritis suggested by BOUKO LEVY M.,Homeopathic and Drainage Repertory
Osteoarthritis is a disease that affects anyone.
Some people start at a young age, due to their heredity and traumatic factors.
Others begin the process at a much later age, due to the normal wear and tear of the joints from gravitational stresses.
The psoric has an autointoxication with all of the overabundance pathologies.
The symptoms are periodical inflammatory arthritic attacks that alternate with other elimination diseases like eczema, E.N. T., diarrhea, etc.
The sycotic has a specific rhythm related to the endocrine fraction, especially genital.
The disorders accelerate during puberty and menopause or andropause.
Aggravation by dampness is an essential modality.
The tuberculinic is an aggravated psoric.
Violent, inflammatory attacks start at an early age during growth periods and quickly appear as arthritic joint and bone decalcifying lesions.
Thyroid dysregulation and allergies are always present.
The luetic has primary tendon and venous weaknesses, esthetic deformations appear early with sprains and night pains.
The destruction of the osteoarticular substance is early in the evolution and the lesions are irreversible.
The articular degeneration provokes a movement restriction that will increase proggressively with the loss of essential bone substance.
Organotherapy is very important for the correct treatment of this natural evolution.
The metabolism of the chondrocyte requires the proper enzymatic stimulation to delay the natural ageing process.
This is the perfect field of action for the use of trace elements.
Plants are the basis for all of the treatments.
They can be prepared in M.T. (phytotherapy), in 1X (gemmotherapy), or classically as a homeopathic substance (satellites).
Stimulation is a pecularity of the sympathetic system’s action.
During the chronic treatment of osteoarthritis, nervous system drainage is an essential part of the treatment to arrest the everyday intoxication and get the best results.
