An Elderly Patient of Trigeminal Neuralgia Got Immense Pain-Relief With No Drug Dependency With Homeopathy

Trigeminal neuralgia is a rare condition characterized by pain on one side and, rarely, affecting both sides of the face. No other disease that humans have can be more painful than the terrible pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia. 1 in 25000 people suffer from this painful misery; making life miserable and most patients get the idea of committing suicide rather than suffering from such agony.


Conventional medicines, largely consisting of the use of anti-epileptic medicines called Carbamazepine or Gabapentin, are certainly useful; but not to all and not capable of giving lasting relief. Besides their significant side effects, many patients get only partial relief by using these medicines.

If you add homeopathic medicines to the regimen, the chances of Trigeminal Neuralgia coming under control faster are high than otherwise. Also, the need for a high dose could be avoided and so as the serious adverse effects of the same. At Life Force, we have documented and treated successfully more than 1050 cases of Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Here's one of the cases of trigeminal neuralgia which was incredibly treated with homeopathy at Life Force.

A 69-year-old male patient (PIN: 32662) suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia for the last 6-7 years visited Life Force for treatment. 

He had pain on the right side of his face. The pain was very severe and intense. It used to start from the right cheek and spread to the eye and ear. It would affect him 5-6 times a day. The duration of his pain was from a few seconds to a few minutes. The pain would turn severe on brushing the teeth, chewing, and washing the face. The patient was on Gabapentin 300mg once a day for the last 5-6 years.


He was also suffering from Hypertension and Diabetes, for which he was taking allopathic medicines.


Physical Generals:

The patients appetite was average. He had no specific desire or aversion to any food. His thirst was average. He had no issues related to the urine and stool. His sleep was normal and refreshing.


Psychological and Family Make-Up:

The patient was retired. He had 2 sons who were working. The patient was very irritable and short-tempered. He was a very social person. He was also interested in lots of social services. 


Self and Familys Medical History:

No other illnesses were noted in the patient’s medical history. Also, there were no major illnesses in his family.


At Life Force:

After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed some research-based homeopathic medicines to the patient.



On 28th July 2018, the patient reported that he was feeling a lot better with the medicines. The frequency and intensity of his pain were minimal. He had stopped taking the Gabapentin tablet for the last 4 months, and, now, he was only on homeopathy.


On 22nd July 2019, the patient updated that he was better all this time, but, in the last few days, the pain has started affecting him again. He had not started with any allopathic medicines yet. The pain was present but not as intense as it used to be before. The intensity of the pain was less. Based on this feedback, Dr. Shah prescribed further medicines to the patient.


On 16th April 2020, the patient updated that he was much better. The pain was minimal, and it was occurring only occasionally. He was completely better with Homeopathic medicines. The patient was also prescribed certain vitamin tablets along with the medicines.


On 24th April 2021, the patient reported that he was overall better. The pain used to come sometimes but the intensity of the pain was reduced a lot. He could eat his food normally without any discomfort. He was overall better with the medicines.


On 3rd November 2022, the patient updated us being 90% better. The pain was occasionally present with very mild intensity. He had almost recovered from the disease.


He thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating him for this painful condition and improving his health. He was thankful that he got rid of the dependency on allopathic medicines after starting with Homeopathy.


He is continuing treatment to recover completely from his illness.



This case highlights that homeopathy can treat trigeminal neuralgia effectively and safely without any side effects. Also, homeopathy helps in eliminating the dependency on conventional medicines.
