Just curious if anyone here has tried homeopathy for fibro symptoms?

I was looking at Swanson vitamin's website and they had several homeopathy products listed, for various conditions. I did try one for nerve pain, and was surprised how well it seemed to help.

Of course, it's something not to be taken lightly, since in essence it's a different type of "medication" and it could interfere with other meds or medical conditions.

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it seemed to work. I'm wondering if others here have also had
success?

Happy weekend, everyone!

Hi Lj: I think it's okay to say the entire name here on the forum, right (not using a link, so I think so)? (if not, moderator, please delete).

The one I tried is called MediNatura Nerve Pain Relief. There are 100 little pills; dissolve one under the tongue.

I noticed in a review someone said they worked while taking, but stopped soon after. That wasn't my experience, though--still did well a few hours later.

I may try more of their homeopathy products. Good luck! smile

I think we can say, as long as we are not selling products if i remember right..

Thanks luvs, i jotted it down ..see how i do with the heal and soothe, and keep that in mind ..

With nerve issues i always stay open to experimenting with new products esp since some of the meds are difficult.

So true, Lj, I think nerve pain is the absolute worst thing to deal with--much worse in some areas, and I'm always looking for relief. I'm just tired of dealing with stronger meds and the side effects, though sometimes it seems it's the only thing that really helps. I like the homeopathic-type remedies for the 'better but still need something' days.

I noticed they have something for fibromyalgia, also, called "My Pain Away" fibro cream and "Temporary Fibromyalgia Pain and Discomfort Relief" and also, thought I saw others when I was scrolling through there recently. I'll have to take the time to take a closer look at what they have available.

Lj: Would you mind sharing which topicals you like best? Was it you who had mentioned Tiger Balm here? I've heard that's a good topical cream to use.

I generally use them more in the colder months, then it's usually the cheaper, copy-cat, generic brands of things like Ben-gay, and I buy them at Wal-Mart. I know--shame on me--I really should pay a little more for better products, but you know how it goes! Too many other things in my cart. rolleyes

With winter a few months away (eek!), I'm starting to look ahead to tackle the nerve pain, etc. that seems so often to get worse with the cold. Winters are rough. Always on the lookout for more good ideas! Thanks. smile

I like soothenol x2 by northstar nutritionals..its pricey so i buy it ,buy three, get three free..bulk..it only takes a few drops per area and lasts pretty well.. but i have low back pain, that if i use this after the shower..it keeps my back from pain most the day..

I also like pain erase, from harbor health..it comes with an old date, but it never expires..and still works years later than the date..

I think it says a bottle lasts a month, but it lasts way longer..and comes in an applicator bottle , and they have a purse size, so if an area gets sore you can treat on the go.

Both of these have a strong smell when applying , but it dissipates quickly..i do not smell it after 10 minutes..which is good cause i am smell sensitive..

My daughter tried the x2 and felt like it stung for days..it was too intense for her..you adapt to it and do not have that reaction over time..i can feel that ,say if i am on a beach and its 90 out..

Pain erase also has price breaks in larger amounts, but just to try it you would not want to buy it that way..

I did not get relief with australian dream , which would have been great..cause no smell at all... but also no pain relief..

Many years ago something like aspercreme worked for me , but only for a while..

Biofreeze helps, but has to be applied more often, also it used to have a blue color that looked odd on the skin in summer..lol..not sure if it is still blue..

I get a lot of relief from topicals , which lets me take less meds..so a lot less side effects...

Hope you find the right thing for you..i cannot imagine fibro without topicals in my toolbox..
