Left eye has been twitching.1st the upper lid and now the lower, within a few wks. Could it be hemifacial spasm? I'm 22.If I blink fast, twitchingstarts

Is oligospermia (low sperm count) treatable by homeopathy treatment?

Is oligospermia (low sperm count) treatable by homeopathy treatment?

No, but harmless: There are no good randomized clinical studies, where half of a group of men get homeopathic treatment and half get a placebo (fake treatment). Sperm counts change from month to month so if you take a baby Aspirin a day & get a better sperm count the 2nd time is it due to the aspirin? One small study of homeopathy for sperm problems had no placebo group. Expect no side effects, unknown if benefits. ...Read more

Can aloepacia be treated completely by homeopathy?

What homeopathic way (s) can I treat my shallow breathing?

What homeopathic way (s) can I treat my shallow breathing?

Many options: First, do you really mean homeopathic? Homeopathy is a specific system of healing & many confuse it with holistic or herbal medicine.

My teenage daughter is being treated with steroids for SJIA. A homeopathic doctor prescribed her "pulsatilla" but I'd like to check if it's safe first?

EXTREMELY SAFE!!!: Pulsatilla, like almost all homeopathic remedies, is VERY safe. It's the extremely diluted essence of a wildflower; if there are any actual chemicals from the flower in the remedy it might be a few parts per trillion. A common critique of homeopathy is it's too dilute to have any effect, but it can help a lot. While steroids can be very helpful for many conditions they can have serious side effects. ...Read more

Your case should have been taken deeply, your entire history explored. Sometimes old symptoms can recur on the path towards healing. If they're completely foreign to you, they could be related to the remedy. Collaborative care with your neurologist would be wise. ...Read more
