6 Best Homeopathic Medicines for Swollen Ankles

Causes of Swollen Ankles

Ankles may get swollen due to many reasons. The main causes behind swollen ankles are trauma, injury to ankle, sprained ankle, venous insufficiency, lymph edema (from improper functioning of lymphatic system), arthritis, heart disease (congestive heart failure), kidney disease, liver disease, infection, tumour, certain medications including calcium channel blockers, steroids, and antidepressants.

Homeopathic Treatment for Swollen Ankles

Homeopathic treatment follows a process of detailed investigation to manage the complaint of swollen ankles. Each case is investigated and analysed in depth prior to prescribing a medicine to rule out involvement of any vital organ in the etiology. Swollen ankles from injury, sprains and arthritis can be independently dealt with by Homeopathic medicines. In case a vital organ is involved, Homeopathic medicines can be used to support treatment together with other systems of medicine. Homeopathic medicines for swollen ankle should be taken only after consulting a physician. Self-medication should be avoided.

  15. Clare Sully says:

    Dear Dr Sharma, I have had water retention since a surgery 10 years ago, I gained 3 stone within a year afterwards and my weight can fluctuate by 5 pounds in a day sometimes. If I poke my stomach it looks like it ripples as though it is full of fluid. Doctors say I haven’t got fluid retention so I am trying to help myself. I also find it impossible to lose weight, is there a remedy that can drain fluid from the stomach and rest of the body as I’m generally puffy all over?
