Stroke

Alternative and Complementary Medicine for Stroke

Homeopathic Remedies for Stroke

Homeopathic treatments are intended to support recovery from a stroke, rather than to treat an acute episode. If you suspect you may be having a stroke, seek emergency medical treatment immediately.

First aid for stroke, if the person loses consciousness:

Aconite 30c: if the person is very fearful

Opium 6c: if the person has collapsed; face is dark and flushed; loud, "snoring" breathing; cheeks puff out as person exhales

Arnica 6c: Once the person's condition is stable, give every 4 hours for up to 3 days.

In case of emergency, give one of the following strength every fifteen minutes for up to ten doses during a stroke while waiting for medical assistance. You should call for medical assistance immediately.

Belladonna 30c: if the person's face is hot and flushed, if there is headache, if the eyes are wide and staring

Nux vomica 6c: at first signs of attack, especially if brought on by a heavy meal or alcohol

Aconite 30c: for a person who is panicky and afraid of dying once he or she realizes what is happening

Opium 6c: In later stages, if the person is lapsing into consciousness, face is bluish and congested, and breathing is heavy and labored, take four times daily for up to two weeks immediately after a stroke.

Arnica 6c to be taken four times daily for up to three weeks during recovery.

Baryta 6c: if the person is elderly and physically and mentally weak.

Gelsemium 6c: where main aftereffects are numbness and trembling, in- ability to speak, pain at back of head.

Lachesis 6c: if speech is very slow.

Hyoscyamus 6c: if speech is unintelligible, and person has a tendency to clutch private parts.

Aurum 6c: if the person is clearly depressed.

After Your Stroke

The best approach to treating the aftermath of stroke homeopathically is to consult a qualified homeopathic practitioner who can prescribe a constitutional remedy. The remedies that follow can be helpful as well.

Aconite and Arnica
Aconite
can help alleviate the panic, fright, and shock that accompany a stroke.
Arnica helps to initiate bodywide healing.

Dose: As soon as your doctor signals that you can take something by mouth, take one dose of Aconite 200x or 30c. Follow this with one dose of Arnica 30x or 15c three to four times daily for three to five days.

Aurum muriaticum is good if your predominant symptom is depression. Take one dose of Aurum muriaticum 30x or 15c three times daily for up to three days, as needed. If you notice an improvement before that time, stop taking the remedy.

Baryta carbonica is helpful for both physical and mental weakness and fatigue following a stroke. Take one dose of Baryta carbonica 30x or 15c three times daily for up to three days, as needed. If you notice an improvement before that time, stop taking the remedy.

Gelsemium can help if you have numbness and trembling, and have lost the ability to speak. Take one dose of Gelsemium 30x or 15c three times daily for up to three days, as needed. If you notice an improvement before that time, stop taking the remedy.
