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

  6. Mike De Lay says:

    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?

  15. Sanjib mishra says:

    Sir I am 40 ys old, and I can’t tolerate heat and cold summer I can’t get out in the sunlight..though I look well..fitted..but actually I m so weak.

  16. Dear Dr Sharma:

    I have been following your wisdom for years…. my 95 year old father is always cold…. he has lost a lot of weight and has type 2 diabetes. Even when the temperature in the house is 76 degrees F he has on a fleecelined flannel shirt, a fleece jacket over it and bundles himself up under a heated blanket, and still says he is cold. Yet when I feel him his skin is warm to the touch…. my hands are much colder than his…

    I would try silicea except that I thought it had a propensity to expel items from the body and should not be used by anyone who has any medical inserts in their body, such as the heart stents my father has…. I have read cautions especially about not using silicea for any heart stents or transplants… what are your thoughts on this and what would you recommend for him?

    Also, he is starting to have effects of dementia…. and it is really upsetting to my 94 year old mother who is stressing out and having ill effects from the stress. He has begun to be confused about where he is at times, has many hallucinations/dreams while napping during the day, refuses to eat anything but Weetabix cereal and has minimal appetite even for that, is having gagging reflex when trying to take pills, has excessive saliva (drooling) and spits his food out at the table (something he never ever did before), his gait is now unsteady, gets nasty when we tell him he has to take his pills – says “not to push him and he doesn’t have to do anything”, he has an enlarged prostrate, has a lot of gas in his intestines, and has two infected molar teeth that he will not have removed. There are many moments when he is still himself — joking and caring and fun, but those are slipping away from us…. he has lost all interest in reading or even watching television shows, and the only exercise he gets is going from the couch to the bathroom…. he is deeply depressed and anxious, and prays out loud for God to take him.

    Otherwise his health is quite good according to the doctors — his white blood cell count on Saturday was normal, normal bloodwork, and all his vital signs of blood pressure and pulse excellent. His blood sugar was managed quite well until recently when we have attempted to increase his calorie intake in order for him to gain some weight back… but that is nearly impossible because all he eats is the wheat cereal and oatmeal, and once in awhile I can get him to eat an omelet. He refuses to eat meat or vegetables, so fortunately he is on a special diet drink that has vitamins in it. Mealtimes are so unpleasant now because it is such a battle to get him to take his diabetes pill and then to eat…. sometimes he takes the pill and then goes to lie down again and that cannot happen because once he takes the pill he has to eat….and we have a huge scene because I do not want his blood sugar to go low ever again — that happened twice many years ago and it was the most frightening episodes I have ever experienced.

    What would you recommend to help him gain some normalcy again?

  18. Hi. My auntie experiences severe pains in her arms as soon as the weather turns cold, around Autumn time (can be rough/cold here in the UK) and this carries on throughout the Winter and calms down only in the summer. She feels great in the Summer. She takes Rhux Tox when needed (around 3-4 times) and feels relief but the relief is only temporary as she must take it again once the pain starts towards the end of the next Autumn time. She explains the pain to be as if her arms are placed on a block of ice with ‘icy water’ running through her arms and I thought that is quite an outstanding fact needed to be mentioned. What would you advise? She also has had a history of chronic cough but that had been treated with homeopathy and she no longer experiences any such cough problems. Thanks

    • I have never been able to adequately describe the feeling I get with my cold sensitivity. “Icy water running through” is exactly the feeling I experience as well. Thank you for helping me to vocalize this feeling!

  25. Hello Doctor,
    I had hives four months ago from a severe reaction to Chinese food, most likely, excessive MSG. Things did not go well at all with this and it took about six weeks for it to calm down. I am now hyper-sensitive to histamine in foods, in cold air and upon exertion. I never had to watch what I eat until this poisoning attack. I attempt to do martial arts form and the energy and exertion causes rashes. Certain foods cause rash and cold weather causes rash. I was a normal person. I do brain exercises to make my energy larger and stronger. I do very simple standing meditation forms to bring energy from the Universe. I have tried several antidotes: tea and charcoal helped. My stomach has attacks of acid reflex from histamine that is only controlled. This Chinese food has really made a mess of me, leaving me super hyper-sensitive to lfie, in general.bisbee

  26. Lois Broom says:

    Good Afternoon Dr Sharma,

    The difficulty I have is not knowing when I am getting too hot – only when I start to feel strange, light headed, even shaking, I suddenly think – oh, maybe I am too hot. Once I reduce my clothing all symptoms disappear. I am in my early 70’s and very active. I do drink 4 large glasses of water a day.

    I thought there was a cell salt or this?
