I'm trying Homeopathy

I started homeopathic treatment about 20 days ago. This is with a qualified practitioner.
I also have Homeobotanical drops as well as the classic pills homeopaths give you (tiny little things that mustn't be touched, and they roll around all over the place!)

I have migraine with visual aura events, but it is a strange form. I get very little headache, but do get dizziness, light headedness, palpitations, gut disturbances, sometimes nausea, a feeling like I'm fading away, terrible exhaustion,exercise intolerance, hot flashes, pulsatile tinnitus, malaise, a feeling like I'm coming down with flu on a regular basis.

So far the remedies have NOT cured me. But I have had a larger number of days when I didn't feel so bad all in all. And once I managed to literally abort a really bad night by taking just two of the homeobotanical drops in some water! I was so surprised that happened. Nothing else was helping that night.

Anyway, this may be a long process, as I have been unwell with this for two and a half years, funny turns occasionally in the past, unexplained brief dizzy spells sometimes over the years (before I knew anything about migraine!) and have had visual auras since 1999 (I didn't know what they were either!) So I do actually have quite a long history of some kind of silent migraine.

Homeopathy helped me once, so I am willing to try it for this.

I will update as I go along, and let you all know if/how it helps. I hope it will make a difference. We will see.

  1. Hi ,

    Thank you for the update, we look forward to hearing about your progress.

    I did want to mention one thing - as much as we want a "cure" there currently isn't one for migraine disease. Migraine is a genetic, neurological disease that we try to manage. Hopefully this practitioner will help you set up a good migraine managing plan.

    Can't wait to hear more!

    1. Yes Nancy -you are right, of course. There is no "cure". It's important to keep that perspective, or there can be false expectations from treatments.

      I suppose my most realistic "dream come true" would be if for instance, I started having a slight funny turn, and then it faded away and didn't really develop into much, and my quality of life improved to about 80% (more would be super!)
      And better energy, like I had before, and less exercise intolerance would be nice.
      Well....that's my ambition anyway, fingers crossed!

      Which treatments help you mostly?

      1. Thank you for your reply. I've found Botox has reduced my migraine attacks by about half, and my acute medications, nasal sumatriptan, seems to be more effective.

        Have you tried Botox?
