Homeopathy for drug drink withdrawal
Presenting complaint: Addiction to pain killers and alcohol
The addiction had started after quitting the regular recreational use of a cocktail of class A drugs. The addiction to pain killers had lasted the duration of 10 years. The reason for consulting a homeopath was a fear of repercussions via the G.P. that may affect the patients’ career.
Over a period of four months with both therapeutic and constitutional prescriptions the patient had stopped drinking every night, was sleeping a full eight hours and on a bad day the addiction was reduced to 6 painkillers per day. It was noted that there was less of a craving or the time between taking the tablets had become significantly longer. This was significant in reflection that over a ten year period it had been 10 per day. The patient had begun exercising regularly and had greater energy, clarity of thought and focus. The only reason for not continuing with the treatment was due to financial circumstances but there was a noted benefit with homeopathic support
