Homeopathy for Obesity
Homeopathy offers treatments for various aspects of obesity.
Homeopathic medicines can help you lose weight by improving digestion, elimination, and metabolism. But the medicines need to be individually prescribed, based on your own unique pattern of symptoms.
Constitutional treatment is most appropriate, but some of the following remedies might be useful.
Antimonium crudum is usually indicated if you become very irritable when someone warns you not to overeat. You also have belching and diarrhea, and may have a coated tongue. Take one dose of Antimonium crudum 30x or 7c each morning and another in late afternoon for up to five days.
Argentum nitricum. This remedy reduces cravings for sweets. Take one dose of Argentum nitricum 30x or 9c twice daily for up to one week.
