BACKGROUND: Obesity is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality globally and challenging to treat because of the multifactorial etiology and presentation. Individualized homeopathy takes into account factors that led to a patient’s health condition and hence may have a role in the treatment of obesity and related co-morbidities; co-morbidities that may arising from the same etiology may respond as a whole to homeopathy treatment.
CASE REPORT: A 39-year-old Russian female who developed multiple problems after severe emotional stress was treated with individualized classical homeopathic therapy. Obesity, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and dysautonomia were pathologies that showed improvement.
CONCLUSIONS: The response in this patient’s case, supports the need for further investigation on the relevance of individualized homeopathy in these related conditions.
