Does homeopathy really help cure MS.(Multiple Sclerosis )

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the Central Nervous System (CNS) - that's the brain and spinal cord. Predominantly, it is a disease of the "white matter" tissue. The white matter is made up of nerve fibres which are responsible for transmitting communication signals both internally within the CNS and between the CNS and the nerves supplying rest of the body.

In people affected by MS, patches of damage called plaques or lesions appear in seemingly random areas of the CNS white matter. At the site of a lesion, a nerve insulating material, called myelin, is lost. I shall explain this process in more detail later. Clinically, MS is a hard condition to characterise because it is very unpredictable and variable. Depending on which areas of the CNS are affected and how badly they are damaged, the type and severity of symptoms can vary greatly.

No two people get MS in exactly the same way and the expression of each individual's disease is as unique as their fingerprints. However, the different courses of the disease, both within an individual and within the whole population, principally differ in their timing, location and severity. Underneath similar processes (including demyelination and sometimes other forms of nerve degeneration) are going on.

Although recent research indicates that the biochemical make-up of lesions may vary between different forms of the disease, this is not the reason why people with MS (PwMS) have such widely differing symptoms - it's because nerve damage to one site usually causes completely different symptoms than damage to another.

In general, people with MS can experience partial or complete loss of any function that is controlled by, or passes through, the brain or spinal cord.
What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a system of medicine which has a different approach to disease and remedy from that of conventional or Allopathic medicine. In the Allopathic approach, medicines are used that work against diseases and their symptoms. In Homoeopathy, the symptoms of an illness are viewed as a direct manifestation of the body's attempt to heal itself and a Homoeopathic substance is given that is capable of producing similar symptoms if given to a well person. In so doing, Homoeopathic attempts to stimulate the body's own natural healing capacity with Homoeopathic remedies acting as a trigger for the body's own healing forces.

The disease is intimately associated with the life of the individual and is a result of internally concealed causes and also external causes (environment, viral and bacteriological diseases, traumatisms ).


Specific signs, and symptoms, the form of the body, the attitude: Sthenic or Asthenic or Normal and other phenomena will be the objectives of the physicians researches.

Homoeopathy is based on the law of similar, the word itself is from Greek HOMOION ( Homeo ) meaning Similar and Pathos meaning disease or suffering. Homoeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle that Like Cures Like. The theory states that any substance which causes an illness or a symptom can, in very small doses, cure the same problem by stimulating the body defense system.

This means that a remedy which creates symptoms and condition in a healthy person will cure a sick person manifesting similar symptoms.
MS can be treated through homoeopathy.
I know few remedies such as :

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dr A.U.Ramakrishnan,Chennai,India (website:drramakrishnan.com)has been treating MS patients in India and Europe/USA and seems to have met with some success.
My wife (aged 32) was diagnosed for MS in Apr 2001 and she has been taking homeopathic tratment under Dr Ramakrishnan since Nov 2002,results so far are positive.

As you know there is are no drugs or treatment protocols that can cure Multiple Sclerosis. There are currently treatments which can modify the course of the disease no cure yet. However, research is ongoing to find both effective means of preventing and arresting the disease, as well as developing better ways of treating those who have Multiple Sclerosis. In recent years there have been advances on many fronts. Treatments have been developed that reduce the number and severity of relapses in some people with Multiple Sclerosis. In addition, there are therapies like homoeopathy to relieve many symptoms and improve the quality of life of people with Multiple Sclerosis.

I was dxed with MS March 2003 (well, first recognized attack). I have been on Avonex since April '03 and I had my second known attach (optic-neuritis this time) March 2004. I went on the IV steroids and am waiting for a complete recovery of the blurry vision - neuros have suggested waiting another 2-3 weeks...

I guess I will tgry contacting Bhaskaran T. to see how his wife is doing and then try the homeopathy - no harm in trying.

I only know from the article on Internet that Andre Saine from Montreal is treating (maybe even curing!?) MS since 1997 with homeopathy (mainly, he is an ND).
He writes about the importance of choosing the peculiar symptoms (like eyeball ext. muscle paralysis: caust. sulph.) and ignoring symptoms more typical for the disease.

Dr. Hamid: you are doing a great job here - the amazing power of homeopathy shines best with cases discarded by the allopathic medicine which calls them incurable to cover its helplessness. Thank you for writing about such difficult cases as MS.

Dear Dr Hamid
That's a provocative question! We can go into esoteric discussions about "what's Cure". As a newbie homeopath I am uncomfortable when someone says I cured such and such with homeopathy. We can say at best that the patient used homeopathy during an MS episode and had relief.

I have had one MS case that responded very well to Alumina.

Thanks for your interesting articles / questions.

dear doctor, i am an acupressurist and at present treating a patient with ms since 7th may 2004. initially the patient showed symptoms of recurrent attacks every 15 to 20 mins and each attack lasted for nearly 1-2 mins. this patient was diagnosed for MS about 8 years ago and the symptoms have accelerated now for the last 15-20 days.
i have found that thru acupressure, i was able to contain the recurrence of attacks and now my patient feels fresh and moves much freely. she has been bed ridden for more than 15 days. i have found a trigger point on the elbow which when stimulated during an attack, reduces the severity and vanishes in abut 5-10 seconds.
i would like to know if there is any other specific homeopathic remedy for this disease. my patient has her right side affected more and there is loss in vision in her right eye. my patient is 41 years of age. she is also suffering from constipation.
thank you very much.

4 months ago I got first symptoms of MS. I took Gelsemium 200K with success: no more symptoms in the 24 hours.

Symptoms are back every months. I take another pill of Gelsemium 200K. Same result: symptoms go away in 24 hours.

At each comeback symptom level is lower than previous month. I hope to get rid of this.
