Traditional homeopathic medicine treats the whole person. Allopathic medicine (traditional Western medicine) treats the disease or the symptoms of the disease. Non-traditional homeopathic medicine uses remedies for specific ailments that use the shotgun approach, that is, a variety of remedies is included and, hopefully, one of them works. This is a non-traditional approach but it has been reported anecdotally to be effective. Because there is no scientific explanation of how and why homeopathic remedies work, the medical establishment in the United States does not regard homeopathy as a viable medical alternative. "It may work sometimes but so do placebos," will often be the response of the allopathic practitioner. Homeopathy has a better reputation in Great Britain and Europe. Those of you who want to evaluate the information and decide for yourselves can use the links below to help you do so.

No specific information regarding homeopathic remedies available for Trigeminal Neuralgia or reducing the pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia is available in the links below at this time. As mentioned above, that isn't the way traditional homeopathy works. Instead, a traditional homeopathic practitioner would attempt to alleviate the pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia by treating the whole person and strengthening the body's ability to heal itself.
