Relieving pain with homoeopathy

Small muscle tear, overwork, inflammation and other imperfections in the body manifest themselves through pain felt in varying intensity throughout the body. They can be abdominal, dental, muscular or musculotendinous. Pain is a strong or gradual sensation that can may take the form of burning, stinging, or crushing feelings or perceptions of pressure, heaviness, and tightness, all of which are felt at the muscular level and in a specific part of the body. They indicate a malfunction that the patient must take care of as early as possible in order to prevent further complications later on.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
