Sciatica – Homeopathic approach
Colocynth is the most important remedy in Sciatica, corresponding to the worst cases. There are pains in the sciatic nerve extending to the knee or to the heel, worse from any motion, and especially aggravated by cold.
Gnaphalium is quite similar to Colocynthis in sciatica and O’Connor thinks it is the best remedy in the absence of the other symptoms, and many others consider it specific. It has intense neuralgic pains along the nerve, and numbness
Rhus tox is the best remedy for a combination of lumbago and sciatica. Sciatica arising from over-exposure to wet or from lifting, wrenching and over-exertion. Great relief from warmth.
