Homeopathic Treatment for Gangrene

What is Gangrene?

Necrosis or death of body tissue is known as Gangrene. Lack of blood supply and infection are the major causes for gangrene. Health conditions that affect blood circulation may predispose a person to gangrene. The primary causes for gangrene are smoking, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, severe injuries, frostbite, peripheral arterial disease, and Raynaud’s phenomenon. Gangrene usually develops in the legs and feet. The types of gangrene include dry gangrene, wet gangrene, and gas gangrene. In dry gangrene, the skin shrivels and dries, and becomes brown, blue or black. Persons having atherosclerosis and peripheral artery disease are predisposed to dry gangrene. In wet gangrene, the affected body tissue is swollen, soft, emits a foul odor, and has blisters. Severe burns, frostbite, and injuries are predisposing factors for wet gangrene. In gas gangrene, the bacterial infection forms gas within the affected tissue. The most common bacteria leading to gas gangrene is Clostridium Perfringens. Wet and gas gangrene have a poor prognosis as compared to dry gangrene. Homeopathy can treat gangrene. Though the body tissues that have died cannot be revived, homeopathic treatment for gangrene can stop its progression. In dealing with a case of gangrene with homeopathy, a detailed case taking is required along with a precise analysis of the case for the final prescription. A well qualified homeopathic physician should be consulted to decide the most effective homeopathic medicine for gangrene, and self-medication must be avoided.

Top Grade Homeopathic Medicines for Gangrene

1. Secale Cor – An Effective Homeopathic Medicine for Dry Gangrene

Secale Cor is a top ranked homeopathic medicine for gangrene which is dry. The main symptoms for selecting Secale Cor as a treatment is dry, shriveled skin with a bluish appearance. The affected area is usually numb. If touched, it feels icy cold. In spite of the feeling of coldness; warmth or external heat over the damaged part is unbearable. Covering the affected area is also intolerable. Uncovering the affected part and cold application makes it feel better. Although the skin is cold externally, internally a burning sensation is felt in the troubled area.

2. Arsenic Album – An Excellent Homeopathic Medicine for Dry Gangrene

Arsenic Album is another homeopathic treatment for gangrene that is dry. Arsenic Album works well when there is a burning feeling in the affected area.

Patients requiring Arsenic Album may also show anxiety and restlessness.

3. Anthracinum – Highly Beneficial Homeopathic Medicine for Wet Gangrene

These secretions are very offensive. Along with these symptoms, there is an extreme burning in the affected area. There is noticeable sloughing of the skin, also known as gangrene ulcers. In cases where Anthracinum is prescribed, the patient feels very weak. Anthracinum is a prominently indicated homeopathic treatment for gangrene that follows burns or scalds.

Along with this, the person feels weak and lethargic and feels better in cold air.

7. Lachesis – Useful Homeopathic Remedy for Gangrene with Bluish Purple or Black Appearance

Lachesis is a good homeopathic medicine for gangrene when it occurs in a malignant, septic and gangrenous state. It works well when the skin has a bluish, purple or blackish appearance. The affected area is extremely sensitive to touch. The skin may also have dark blisters or gangrenous ulcers. These ulcers are painful and have a burning sensation.

  15. Becky Cashdan says:

    I’m getting ready to use Arsenic Album for my husbands foot. How much and how often does he take it.

  16. Christina Bajraktarevic says:

    Good afternoon:

    My husband is diabetic and had the second toe on his right foot amputated in late 2018. Prior to the amputation he had cellulitis and gangrene (although the toe did not turn black, it was just very red and hot).

    As of yesterday, the back side of the big toe on his right foot turned black. For the past 2 weeks he was being treated with intravenous antibiotics for an infection on the right foot just under the big toe. As of this week, the infection is no longer present. However, the back of the toe turned from blueish to black yesterday. I was reading online that Lachesis and Arsenic Album are possible homeopathic cures for this condition. Is that correct?
