Best Homeopathic Treatment for Epistaxis

Bleeding from the inside of the nose is called epistaxis. There is a rich supply of blood to the nasal mucosa by the arteries. Rupture of blood vessels of the nasal mucosa lead to nose bleeding. There are various causes of epistaxis. Amongst the major causes are trauma, nose picking, dryness of nasal membranes, inflammation resulting from chronic sinusitis or chronic rhinitis, and hypertension. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, hemophilia, leukemia, and use of anticoagulant medicines are some other causes of epistaxis. Homeopathic treatment for epistaxis is very effective. The selection of homeopathic medicines for epistaxis should be made as per the individual case presentation. While prescribing a homeopathic medicine for epistaxis, the character of blood and the cause behind epistaxis need to be well considered.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis

Homeopathic medicines are highly beneficial in removing the constant tendency of epistaxis in a person. For a complete cure, homeopathic medicines aim at correcting the underlying cause that is leading to the nose bleed. Top grade medicines for the homeopathic treatment for epistaxis are Hamamelis, Phosphorus, Arnica, Millifolium, and Carbo Veg.

1. Hamamelis – Top Grade Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis

Hamamelis is a very good anti hemorrhagic homeopathic medicine for epistaxis. It works well for bleeding from various orifices of the body, including nasal bleeding. Hamamelis offers a lot of help in epistaxis when the blood is dark and incoagulable. Along with nasal bleeding, there is a soreness in the nose. There is a feeling of pressure and tightness at the root of the nose. Patients in need of Hamamelis also show extreme exhaustion and weakness along with nasal bleeding.

2. Phosphorus – An Effective Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis with Bright Red Blood

Phosphorus is among the best homeopathic medicines to control bleeding from various body parts. It is an equally effective anti hemorrhagic remedy as Hamamelis. Phosphorus is prescribed for bright red nasal bleeding. Phosphorus helps in reducing the tendency towards recurrent epistaxis episodes. In cases of bleeding from nasal polyps, Phosphorus is often used because of its ability to help the patient recover completely. Phosphorus works well in cases of nasal bleeding from chronic nasal catarrh.

3. Crocus Sativus – Significant Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis with Dark or Black, Stringy Blood

Crocus Sativus is another very effective homeopathic medicine for epistaxis with dark or black, stringy nasal bleeding. Crocus Sativus works well in epistaxis where the nasal blood is dark or black with viscid strings that hang down the nose in the form of thread or rope. Along with nasal bleeding, there is extreme physical weakness and weariness. Patients requiring Crocus Sativus may also faint. Epistaxis episodes appearing in summer or hot weather are treated successfully with Crocus Sativus. It helps to control acute nasal bleeding as well a person’s tendency to have recurrent epistaxis spells experienced in hot weather.

4. Arnica – First Aid Homeopathic Treatment for Epistaxis Following an Injury or Blow to the Nose

Arnica is a highly reliable and efficient homeopathic treatment for epistaxis caused by an injury. Arnica, also known as Leopard’s Bane, is a natural homeopathic medicine for cases of injury. It is an anti-trauma remedy found in the first-aid kits of all homeopaths. In epistaxis from injury, a fall or a blow to the nose, Arnica must be given without hesitation as it is a highly competent hemorrhage controlling homeopathic medicine. It can be repeated frequently at short intervals. Arnica works well when there is a sore and bruised feeling in the nose. Apart from epistaxis due to injury, Arnica is also recommended for nasal bleeding during typhoid fever.

5. Carbo Veg – Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis that Appears on a Regular Basis

Carbo Veg is an ideal homeopathic treatment for epistaxis for patients suffering from frequent episodes of nasal bleeding. Due to blood loss, the face of the patient appears pale. The body is cold and sweaty. Other symptoms include low vitality and exhaustion, and sometimes the patient may even collapse due to excessive blood loss. The patient feels better when in cold air. Carbo Veg helps put a check on frequent epistaxis attacks and also contributes to regaining vitality and energy levels lost due to daily nasal bleeding.

6. Meliliotus – Best Homeopathic Medicine for Congestive Headaches Relieved by Nasal Bleeding

Whenever nasal bleeding brings relief from congestive headaches, homeopathic medicine Melilotus is the most appropriate homeopathic prescription. Individuals requiring Melilotus suffer from violent, throbbing, congestive headaches. Along with a headache, there is a redness and flushing of the face. When nasal bleeding appears, the headache and flushing of the face vanish. In such cases, there is a lot of bright red blood.

7. Lachesis – Well Indicated Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis with Black and Thick Blood

Lachesis is a significant anti hemorrhagic homeopathic remedy used for treating various bleeding tendencies. Lachesis works well for epistaxis in cases where there is a discharge of black, thick blood from the nose. The blood may also be offensive. Some patients may also complain of acridity in the blood which irritates and corrodes the lips and nostrils.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis with Bright, Red Blood

Among the most suitable homeopathic treatment for epistaxis of bright red blood are Phosphorus, Ipecac, and Millifolium. Phosphorus works well for bright red nasal bleeding either from nasal polyps, chronic nasal catarrh or otherwise. Ipecac is useful for profuse, bright red nasal bleeding when accompanied by nausea. Millifolium is excellent for painless, profuse bright red nasal bleeding.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis with Dark Blood

Lachesis and Hamamelis are the most prominent homeopathic remedies for epistaxis with dark blood. Lachesis works well in cases of dark, black and thick nasal bleeding. The blood may also be acrid and offensive. Hamamelis is selected when nasal blood is dark, accompanied by tightness on the bridge of the nose. In such cases, there may also be extreme exhaustion from nasal bleeding.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis with Clotted Blood

For dealing with epistaxis with clotted blood, homeopathic medicines Crocus Sativus and China are the best choices. Crocus Sativus works well when nasal bleeding is tenacious, clotted and stringy. It may hang down from the nose in the form of threads. China works well when the person loses vitality due to excessive nasal bleeding. The person seems completely exhausted, debilitated, and may even faint with epistaxis.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis from Trauma

Homeopathic medicines Arnica and Hamamelis are the best homeopathic remedies to deal with epistaxis caused by trauma. These medicines give great results when controlling nasal bleeding from injury, trauma or a blow to the nose. They can be used alternatively for best results.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epistaxis with Anemia

Ferrum Met and China are the most appropriate homeopathic medicines for epistaxis with anemia. Ferrum Met is a highly suitable homeopathic medicine for controlling hemorrhages in anemic patients. Ferrum Met works well when nasal blood is bright red. In such cases, along with epistaxis, symptoms of anemia are also present. Homeopathic medicine China is equally effective as Ferrum Met and is prescribed when epistaxis appears with anemia and a noticeable loss of body strength. Extreme exhaustion, weakness, and debility are also present.

Homeopathic Medicine for Epistaxis from Dry Nasal Crusts

Ammonium Carb and Kali Bichrome are useful homeopathic medicines for epistaxis from nasal crusts. Patients requiring these medicines have nasal bleeding because of the peeling of nasal crusts that get formed due to dry nasal catarrh. These medicines have to be used for some time for complete recovery.

    Dear Dr Sharma
    My 13 yo daughter had two nosebleeds yesterday that we’re unlike anything she’d ever experienced before. She has had a cold so I assume dryness and/or inflammation was a factor. The first nosebleed came on very quickly and lasted for over an hour. It was gushing blood (we were shocked at how much) for a lot of that time and there were some large gel-like blood clots near the end. The second nosebleed was in the evening and was similar but had more clots and only lasted 20 minutes. I have read about the many remedies for nosebleeds and am confused as to what we should try. I’m mostly looking for something that will help with clotting when the bleeding starts (since this is not an ongoing issue that happens without a cold, at least not yet). Thank you in advance for your help! – Deb

  4. Hello. I have used homeopathy for 30 years now but mostly slef treating as my docotr is not close by. My dad has been living with me for 3 years but I worry that I do not know enough to use it with him without assistance due to his age. He will be 92 in May. I had him at the local ER today due to a nosebleed. The blood was bright red. It started on the right and lasted about an hour. We used rolled cotton squares to pack it and it finally stopped. The left side started after the right side but it was much more fluid and heavy. It started about 12:30 and was still going 3 hours later, although slowed down so I took him to the ER. It bleed heavily for at least 20 minutes. and was still going when we arrived at the hospital. I had packed that side as well and had to change the packing every 15 minutes because it would be running out past the packing. The blood was bright red. My dad is otherwise healthy, taking only lipitor (5 mg daily) and synthroid .137 daily and 1 81 mg baby aspirin daily. If I could find a doctor to get him off of these I would do so but he has been on them for years and I am heasitant to remove them without docotr assistance or approval. Otherwise several vitamins & supplements- Hawthorne berry, Co10, B12, Prostrate vitamin, Areds2 for his eyesight as he has wet macular degeneration and receives shots in both eyes every 3 months. He has had stents in his heart and also 18 months ago had a aortic valve replacement (a TAVR procedure) followed by a cardioversion. He was told there is still a 60 to 70 percent blockage and he might need another stent to help with shortness of breathe but we decided to not do the procedure at this time because he feels well & episodes of shortness of breath are relieved by less activity, as well as the risk to him because of his allergy ( which has gotten worse each procedure) to iodinized dyes which they say must be used. For the TAVR he was heavily pretreated with steroids & benedryl before & throughout the procedure and still needed treatment afterward due to more hives and itching. He does not like to take meds at all and refused most things like beta blockers due to side effects (dizziness and not wanting to risk a fall). He is very active for his age, riding a stationary bike daily (because I don’t like to see him on a the real bike) doing a lot of yardwork and gardening when weather permits it and walks without assistance or devices. He still drives locally within 15 minutes of the house.
    The ER said it was in the front and all that was needed was a cool mist humidifier and some vaseline. They did not pack his nose and told him there was no need to use the cotton rolls so they should be left out. I do not get him a flu or pneumonia shot and use a prophylactic homeopathic medicine to protect him on that front. I do have phosphorus here at the house and thought I might try that or Ipecec since the drainage down his throat is making his stomach feel bad. Would these remedies be the best choice? And would I alternate them for a few days or how long? At this point the bleeding is very little but it has been 9 hours. most of it has stopped but it starts up a little at intervals but it is slowing down.
