Abstract

MOJAVER and co-authors, Department of Oral Medicine, Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences, Dental School, Rafsanjan, Iran, Yalda_n_m@Yahoo.com, have studied the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia with homeopathy.

Background

The aim of this study was to evaluate individualized classical homeopathy in the treatment of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia.

Methodology

15 patients with physician-confirmed trigeminal neuralgia were treated with homeopathy. Patients received individualized homeopathic medicines as oral liquid 30C once per month and were followed up at the end of the first, second, third and fourth month. Visual analogue scale (VAS) was used for the evaluation of pain intensity, and descriptive criteria were used for evaluation of attack frequency.

Results

All 15 patients completed the treatment course. The results for both the reduction of pain intensity and attack frequency were statistically significant (p < 0.001) during the four-months evaluation. The authors observed overall reductions of more than 60% in pain intensity using homeopathic treatment.

Conclusion

The results suggest that homeopathic treatment is an effective and safe method in the treatment of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia.
