End of Life Care & Homeopathy

How can Homeopathic medicine help in the end of life care?

End of life care using Homeopathy as a palliative can be a very valuable treatment when relief and comfort of a dying patient is needed. It can ease distressing symptoms, while maintaining the patient’s awareness and consciousness, therefore prolonging the quality of life and meaningful interaction with loved ones in the last days. Remedies can be used in the care of all kinds of life-limiting illnesses by alleviating, emotional and mental suffering. Homeopathy can, for example, be used by people with end-stage heart, lung, liver, kidney and neurological diseases, cancer and AIDS. Acutely prescribed palliative homeopathic remedies can serve to soothe many symptoms that are common at the end of life, such as pain, nausea, fatigue, constipation, restlessness, anxiety, fear, depression and grief. Homeopathy also has a useful role to play in care of families of the terminally-ill person, both during the illness and especially in bereavement.

Why choose Homeopathy in end of life care?

Homeopathy is natural treatment that can be offered to people that are looking for a more holistic approach. Homeopathy can help the patient meet their end in a positive and good way without the side effects associated with heavy medication.

Are remedies difficult to take?

No - they are mostly given in pill form, which dissolve easily on the tongue and have a sweet taste. Remedies can be dissolved in water.

Will this medicine interfere with any medicines my doctor has prescribed?

No - Homeopathic remedies do not interfere with other medication you may be taking, and have no side effects. Homeopathic remedies can work in a complimentary way with conventional medicine. Remedies are gentle and safe, yet at the same time they are sufficiently strong enough to help stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities.
