Cold sensitivity and Homeopathy

You dread winters! Because cold makes life hell for you – runny nose, sneezes, headache, stuffed-up feeling, and that cold damp feeling in the feet. Your defences are also too high, with a muffler wrapped around your head all day long, layers of woolens, more than a pair of warm socks, still nothing seems to keep you warm and if you thought that’s only the way to beat out your sensitivity, believe me you are totally wrong. Homeopathy may just be the right choice for you. A well-directed homeopathic treatment can actually help reduce and cure your sensitivity towards cold and disorders associated with it. In homeopathy we call it a “chilly constitution” and certain specific medicines are there for it.

Medically speaking, slow metabolism is one of the main causes for cold intolerance. Some people (often very slender women) do not tolerate cold environments simply because they have minimal body fat and are unable to keep warm. General poor health, faulty diet and medical conditions such as anorexia nervosa, hypothyroidism, AIDS and other chronic illness can also lead to intolerance.

Be it the lack of warmth in the body or symptoms that sensitive individuals develop, homeopathic medicines such as Silicea, Calcarea Carb offer a big promise in their treatments. Personally, I would rank Silicea ahead of other medicines in treating cold intolerance. Silicea is an invaluable constitutional remedy, and is indicated in the over-sensitive, imperfectly nourished (generally), not for want of food, but because of imperfect assimilation. There are very high levels of cold intolerance. Nothing makes the Silicea patient feel warm and take cold easily, especially from uncovering the head or the feet.

The main indication for Silicea is that no matter how hard the patient tries, feet don’t seem to get warm and also there is an increased cold intolerance on the head. Least exposure seems to bring on a severe headache, only to be relieved by warm applications. Chronic conditions – sinusitis, cold, asthma, bronchitis and cough caused in such oversensitive individuals – are effectively treated with Silicea. Calcarea Carb is very useful in constitutions where metabolism seems to slow down; it is indicated in cold intolerance associated with hypothyroidism and one of the main indications for the use of Calcarea Carb is constant sensation of cold damp feet.image

    I have suffered for past 5 years with cold left hand and arm up to elbow and very hot right foot, worse when walking. No diagnosis was made until 11/2018. Prior, no symptoms and no nerve pain no reflex problems. Stanford neurologist said I had sensory neuropathy but cause unknown. No diabetes, no circulation/ heart problems. I was loosing functions in 2018 and told Doctors i was “ heating” in my mine I would die soon. Strange. Stanford ordered MRI on my neck and found very severe stenosis at C3/4. Spinal cord was not visible in MRI. I had successful surgery 11/2018 that removed large “bone spur”. Since surgery Mose if my lost body functions have improved but still have very cold hand/arms and hot right foot. No improvement there. I have tried acupuncture, message, chiropractic, Chinese medicine, physical Thearpy and homeopathy. Doctors all call me a hard case with no idea what to do but give time. Any ideas?
