Homeopathics are a safe and extremely effective way of balancing your problems naturally by allowing your system to correct itself with gentle stimulation of your own immune response. Unlike so many conventional medications, homeopathics are never addictive. Once symptoms are relieved and resolved, you can stop taking them. Here is a list of just a few of the most common medications that I've used over the years:
Phytolacca Decandra (poke root)—comes to mind as the most prominent glandular remedy and almost always is useful in problems associated with mastitis. Tenderness of the breasts before and after menses. Breast tumors with the enlargement of Axillary glands. When a patient complains about breast pain in the upper outer quadrant radiating into the Axillary regions, I always think of this great medicine.
Conium Maculatum (poison hemlock)—indispensable in conditions that present with very hard nodules, tenderness, and swelling around menses. Painful swelling in the Axillary glands with numbness going down the arm.
Silicea Terra (pure flint)—as a consequence of defective nutrition and assimilation, these patients will complain of stitching (splinter-like) pains. Unhealthy tendency to suppuration with fistulas and abscess conditions, keloids, painful scars. Soreness of drawn-in nipples, sensation of a stone pressing in the breast.
Scrophularia Nodosa (knotted figwort)—useful in dissipation of nodules in the breast. The characteristic symptoms would be pain in all flexor muscles. Incidentally, very useful in Hodgkin's disease.
Lac Caninum (dog's milk)—this patient will present with symptoms of painful swelling in the breasts before menses, worse with jarring motion. This woman will hold both breasts firmly going up or down the stairs. Her nipples may be painful and the pain usually alternates from side to side.
Asterias Rubens (red starfish)—may have symptoms of ulceration in the breast, nodules, and indurations with lacerating pains that are worse at night; these pains may extend all the way from Axillary glands through the arm to the end of the little finger. Restlessness of lower extremities at night would very much indicate the use of red starfish.
