Homeopathic Remedies For Chalazia

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

For homeopaths or doctors who practice homeopathic medicine, surgical removal can only give temporary relief to chalazion sufferers. Since this is not a permanent cure, those with a history of chalazion have a higher chance of experiencing re-growths in the future. Homeopathic remedies, however, do not only treat the chalazion but the individual’s propensity or predisposition to develop styes and chalazia. Thus, homeopaths say that after a full course of homeopathy treatment for chalazion — which can last for about 5 to 6 months — a person is said to be fully and permanently cured of chalazia.

As mentioned in the second paragraph of this article, there are currently over 40 known homeopathic remedies for treating a chalazion. The determination as to which one to use will have to be made by your homeopath after a thorough evaluation of your symptoms, lifestyle and other factors. Many homeopaths nowadays harness the power of the Internet by simply asking the patient to answer a consultation form and prescribing the homeopathic regimen based on that.

We will discuss a few homeopathic remedies in the paragraph that follows. However, these are mainly for informational purposes only and should not be construed as homeopathic advice. If you want to go the homeopathic route, schedule an appointment with the homeopathic physician nearest you or search for homeopathic doctors online.

One of the remedies commonly used is a tincture made from Platanus occidentale (American sycamore tree) and calendula (pot marigold). These, according to homeopaths, soften the chalazion and eventually remove it. It is also said to be instrumental in removing the recurring nature of styes and chalazia. Other remedies include homeopathic preparations from the highly toxic belladonna (Devil’s Berries) to treat sudden swelling and redness, alumina (synthetically produced aluminum oxide), Conium Maculatum and Staphysagria.
