Today, 6 million Canadians have arthritis (or about 1 in 5 people). If you are living with arthritis, then you know the symptoms well. Fortunately, homeopathy for arthritis can help you to reduce painful inflammation to the dull aches or uncomfortable stiffness in the swollen joints, the pain and discomfort of arthritis can be chronic and debilitating.

And given there is no known cure, the question on everyone’s mind living with arthritis is: what can be done to reduce the pain and discomfort?

What are the treatments for arthritis?

There are several treatment methods available, and each comes with a unique list of benefits and limitations or drawbacks. One option is to consult a doctor and get prescription medication, often in the form of a painkiller. Another option is physiotherapy, aimed at increasing flexibility and maintaining healthy physical stature. A third option is to explore the naturalistic treatment methods: homeopathy for arthritis.

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is an alternative approach to medicine that is based on using naturally occurring substances to treat health conditions. It was developed by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century. Homeopathy has since become a common modality for treating physical pains like rheumatoid arthritis by taking a holistic view of the entire individual. Homeopathic remedies are generally produced and sold as a pill, a capsule, or as a tincture.

Homeopathy key principles

Generally speaking, homeopathy is based on three key principles:

  1. The use of natural substances: Homeopathy is rooted in the use of naturally occurring substances – like flowers and herbs – as a form of treatment.
  2. Treat “like with like”: If a homeopathic remedy produces symptoms in a healthy person, then it is likely to help a sick person who has the same symptoms.
  3. Dilution: Homeopathic remedies are diluted in several stages until there are only trace remnants of the original molecule.

Why Choose Homeopathy for Arthritis?

So is homeopathy good for arthritis? While there is no single right answer for everyone, homeopathic remedies helped for years to reduce pain and swelling. 

There are several ways in which homeopathy can be used for reducing arthritic pain.

Minimal side effects

High dilution and small dosages mean homeopathic remedies tend not to produce severe (or several) side effects. According to a WebMD article, homeopathy has no known common side effects and only a small number of infrequent, less severe side effects like dry mouth or nausea.


Homeopathy remedies are often sought to treat inflammation caused by arthritic muscles and joints. There are several anti-inflammatory substances in nature – like eucalyptus or turmeric – some of which are used in homeopathy.

Not addictive

Homeopathy is an alternative to prescription painkillers because they are not addictive.

However, mixing prescription medication with a homeopathic treatment at home is not advisable without first speaking with a doctor or medical professional.

Can homeopathy cure rheumatoid arthritis?

Homeopathy cannot cure symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis – in fact, there is no cure for arthritis. Homeopathy for arthritis can help reduce the pain and discomfort caused by inflammation and muscle pain.

Consider an Integrated Treatment Approach

For many people, the key to treating arthritis is to create a treatment plan that works for them. Often, by combining prescription medication, like anti-inflammatory drugs, with a physical therapy practice and homeopathy for arthritis.

There is no single way to treat the pain and discomfort you experience with arthritis, but there are several treatment methods in the homeopathic tradition. When homeopathy for arthritis is used appropriately, and often in combination with prescription medications, it can greatly reduce the discomfort. Now let’s explore some of these remedies!
