What is the Best Homeopathic Remedy for Pain?

Here in the United States, Homeopathy is often overlooked as a modality for pain management. Our healthcare system has huge limitations for the acceptance to homeopathy in the United States which physicians in practice aren’t familiar with the research studies for Homeopathy.  Most of the research conducted is from Europe where homeopathy is integrated into their national healthcare systems. They are able to choose Homeopathic treatment or conventional for chronic pain, which results in significantly reducing the use of conventional painkillers for pain management.

However, Homeopathy deserves to be a first-line treatment due to its safety, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness. Even if pain medication isn’t working as well, or you feel that you don’t want to rely on them entirely, you can always try out some homeopathic remedies for pain management.
