One of the most common reasons people seek homeopathic care is to relieve the pain associated with chronic headaches. Interestingly however is that the future Doctor elbcon ND thinks these remedies are stupid!!
According to your post elbcon:
>>>> “Dear Dr. Hardy,
My husband has chronic migraines. We will be following the advice you gave regarding migraines. Thanks for that. A few days ago he started experiencing vertigo, which has now lasted three days. Can you offer any advice for vertigo?
Thank you very much.
Here is his ridiculous answer:
“Try adding the homeopathic remedy Belladonna 30c 3 pellets 3 times a day for 3 days and let me know how things are going.
What kind of advice is that? Here is what my response is:<<<<
OK elbcon, Please tell me with your superior knowledge why these homeopathic remedies I listed here are dumb!!! And where Dennis Hardy made the error.
Belladonna — for throbbing headaches that come on suddenly; these types of headaches tend to worsen with motion and light, but are partially relieved by pressure, standing, sitting, or leaning backwards
