Occipital neuralgia is a condition in which the occipital nerves (run from the top of the spinal cord at the base of the neck up through the scalp) are irritated or inflamed. The symptoms include severe throbbing, sharp and burning pain like an electric shock, which starts at the base of the head and radiates to the scalp, pain behind the eyes, and often sensitivity to light.


Causes of occipital neuralgia are injury, neck tension, a compression of the occipital nerves, osteoarthritis, a tumor, cervical disc disease, metabolic disorders (gout, diabetes), trauma, an infection, an acidification of the body, certain medications, alcoholism, hormonal imbalance, circulatory disorders, emotinal problems, weather sensitivity and exposure to cold and wet. Also organic problems, for example liver disease and kidney disease, may cause occipital neuralgia.


In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of occipital neuralgia, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's nerves and circulation. The body will be purified and strengthened. The dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the intestines, urinary tract, lungs and skin.


Occipital neuralgia can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Also a defective metabolism favors occipital neuralgia, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution.


Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat occipital neuralgia.


Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.


First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of occipital neuralgia offered in this guide:


Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.


It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of occipital neuralgia. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.


What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing - just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.


The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (for example D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.


Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of occipital neuralgia


In the 19th century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also occipital neuralgia).
