Homeopathy for rheumatism

This leads to an inflammatory change in the connective tissue in the joints.
For example at:

  • rheumatic fever
  • arthritis
  • chronic polyarthritis
  • Bechterew's disease

In the case of acute rheumatic attacks and infectious, purulent joint inflammation, therapy with homeopathics alone is not indicated.
Treatment with medication from conventional medicine such as cortisone, salicylic acid, etc. can be supplemented and accompanied by homeopathics. In many cases this can lead to a reduction in the number of synthetic chemical drugs.
