Dr. Oz

Dr Oz., a cardiothoracic surgeron, is a proponent of homeopathy.  This surgeon specializes in the surgical treatment of chest where patients often have heart disease and lung disease. The doctor has been featured on the Oprah show.  He also has his own tv show and radio show.  He supports integrating conventional therapy and alternative types of medicine.

Homeopathy is used by him and his whole family.  Two of the drugs used by him and the family are arnica and oscillococcinum.  The first one is used to treat soreness of muscles.  The second medicine  is used to treat the flu.  Arnica has not been shown to reduce soreness in any double blind placebo based trial.  Oscillococcinum has been shown to reduce the flu by about 6 hours in large trials.  More research on both of these medicines are needed.  Dr. Oz has published articles that homeopathy may be used to treat certain conditions such as migraines.  Dr. Oz also had done a segment on his show about homeopathy.

Contary to popular belief, many doctors are not against homeopathy or alternative treatments.  They believe alternative type treatments may be used with conventional treatments for a better patient outcome.  In Europe, homeopathy is often used with conventional treatment to help patients have a better treatment outcome.  The US is slowly coming around to alternative type of treatments.

The homeopathic remedy Eupatorium Perfoliatum is made from the boneset plant. The fresh leaves and tops are used. The perennial herb boneset forms the basis of the homeopathic remedy eupatorium perforatum which is primarily used to treat fevers and flu as well as the symptoms associated with them. Boneset is a perennially growing plant indigenous to the eastern regions of the United States as well as Canada. It is found growing naturally from Nova Scotia to Florida and from Louisiana and Texas all over North Dakota. Boneset has a straight, fleshy and cylindrical shaped stem that is covered with fine hairs.

The homeopathic remedy eupatorium perfoliatum is most beneficial for people who usually whimper with pain when they are ill and have a sensation that they are flowing out of their minds. Moreover, people who respond best to this medication are those who are prone to feeling nervous and restive and hope that they would still be able to be at rest. Such people may also have a feeling as if their bones are weak and not useable.

In effect, the homeopathic remedy eupatorium perforatum is generally prescribed for people suffering from influenza or malarial fever that come together with aching limbs. Characteristically, the fever begins like coldness and subsequently it generates heat, perspiration as well as an intense thirst that is accompanied by soreness in the bones as well as intense restiveness. The other symptoms of this condition may include headaches that deteriorate when the patient is perspiring as well as vomiting of bile. In effect, all these conditions and associated symptoms may be treated by administering eupatorium perfoliatum.
