Can Homeopathic Treatment Help In Treating Nerve Pain?

Hi I have a 97 year father that has severe carpol tunnel in both hands. He has pain and numbness in his thumbs and first two fingers on each hand. I would like to know if trying homeopathic nerve pain away with hypericum perforatum would help the numbness so he could feel things?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Homeopathy has a particular value for allergic conditions. However, the jury is still out on how much homeopathy can help with pain and numbness in such a condition.

I have known yoga for certainty to help in such conditions. Given his age, it will need to be slow and gentle yoga with direct support. Acupressure and acupuncture could also help ease the pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sabina Hussain
