Nature.com Publishes Study Showing Homeopathic Remedy Positively Impacting Neuropathy

Nature.com published a study in 2018 showing that homeopathic remedy Rhus Toxicondendron (also called Rhus Tox) impacts neuropathy. In a highly controlled experiment the homeopathically prepared remedy clearly had an effect.

The study is called “Ultra-diluted Toxicodendron pubescensattenuates pro-inflammatory cytokines and ROS- mediated neuropathic pain in rats”

The study stated: “Despite the availability of multiple therapeutic agents, the search for novel pain management of neuropathic pain is still a challenge. Oxidative stress and inflammatory signaling are prominently involved in clinical manifestation of neuropathic pain. Toxicodendron pubescens, popularly known as Rhus Tox (RT) is recommended in alternative medicines as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic remedy. “

The study went on to conclude:

“In summary, this study substantiated the antinociceptive potential of RT (Rhus Tox) ultra-dilutions in the validated model of CCI-induced peripheral neuropathic pain. Interestingly, RT (Rhus Tox) was found to be efficacious in reducing not only the thermal nociception but also the mechanical allodynia in rats. RT demonstrated notable anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in the sciatic nerve and exhibited potential free radical scavenging activity that would reduce its anti-neuropathic activity. Attenuated oxidative stress and inflammatory pathways may contribute to the therapeutic potential of RT in the treatment of neuropathic pain. Although, the results of present study suggested the anti-neuropathic effect of RT, further pre-clinical and clinical studies are warranted to confirm these effects. Several other biochemical mechanisms may be involved in RT mediated anti-neuropathic effect. Results of present study are suggestive of the anti-nociceptive effect of RT against neuropathic pain and deserve further validation of its effectiveness in various painful conditions.”
