Lately, I have been asked by both clients and online fans if I can provide homeopathy treatment for weight loss. This issue tends to be towards the top of the list of issues clients seek aid for.

If you are looking for a quick answer, then the answer for this question is: yes and no. I will explain what I mean.



First, Make Lifestyle Changes!

The job of a homeopath is not primarily to help you loss weight. Rather, it is to enhance your well being on all levels through the proper use of homeopathic remedies. This includes physically, emotionally, and mentally.homeopathy for weight loss

Common challenges with weight loss are generally a result of a person not eating a proper diet or not living a stable lifestyle.

Binging on junk food, not exercising, using drugs, and doing other unhealthy activities can obviously lead to weight issues.

Additionally, no medicine, conventional or alternative, will help if your diet and exercise are not in check. This is an obvious, undisputed fact.

For that, you need to consult with a good and qualified nutritionist or health coach, who will guide you in making the right choices for your daily diet and exercise.


If That Still Isn’t Working…

That being said, there are also times where homeopathy can really help with a person’s weight issues. This applies to cases where weight loss issues correlate to chronic psychologically based ailments, or when diet changes aren’t enough.

Often, something critical such as the death of a loved one, an unhealthy life transition, or a shocking event, and other similar mental/emotional traumas can bring on weight gain as a result.

When we aren’t mentally or emotionally stable, this biologically has a direct effect our bodies, which can lead to things such as gaining weight. Not all weight issues are just from improper diet.

In similar cases, homeopathy aids a person by addressing deeper core issues that are leading to a person’s imbalance in their vitality. In this perspective, weight loss and other physical, mental, and emotional issues are just branches of the entire inner cause or dis-ease that lead to this imbalance.

Keep in mind though that there is not one sole remedy that can support in one’s journey to shedding those unwanted pounds. Homeopathic remedies are usually given on an individual basis and specifically tailored for the person and their overall complaints.




My Recommendation

In my opinion, the most correct option for any person that wants to lose weight is to ask themselves this question: “when did I start putting on tons of pounds?”

If the cause is simply from a lack of proper diet exercise, then see a nutritionist or health coach. They can help you make the right dietary and lifestyle changes.homeopathy for weight loss

If you feel that your weight issues go farther back and are deeper root causes, then it’s best to see a homeopath for a consultation, who can help you restore your vitality on all levels: physical, mental, and emotional. This includes weight challenges as well.

By doing this, not only will your weight loss issues be addressed, but any other issues you have may be resolved in the most efficient way possible.

If you are able to use both at the same time, then that is the most ideal way to loss weight, since they both do not interfere with each other.



A Personal Example

I had a client who came to see me several months ago with major health issues. Although he didn’t really give much emphasis to it, he very briefly explained his improper diet and the fact that he was overweight.

Based on the case presented, I gave him a remedy that I thought best matched his personality and his issues. After a month and a half, we spoke on the phone before his upcoming follow up.

Besides the fact that most of his symptoms were starting to clear up, he felt mentally and emotionally stronger. After 6 months, he was able to lose 20 pounds, and never felt better. Today, he is continuing to lose even more weight and maintains proper diet and excercise. 



So, What Happened?

Homeopathy didn’t directly cause him to lose weight. It went a step further: it addressed the deeper pathological issues that connected to his inability to lose weight. By helping him to clear away these long term deeper issues, he was able to heal mentally and emotionally. This enabled him to become a more grounded and steadfast in his desire to lose weight. He was then able to get rid of his obstacles to cure. All of these steps in order enabled him to shed the pounds that he so desperately wanted lose.

At the end of the day, everyone needs to make the effort to change. The beauty of homeopathy is that it gives one the strength to make better health choices. This is a major part of the healing process that many experience. It makes no difference whether it’s for weight loss, anxiety, eczema, or any other health challenge.


Another example is myself. I have had my own success in losing weight with homeopathy as well as proper diet and exercise. 



Conclusion: Homeopathy Treatment for Weight Loss – Depends

To conclude, homeopathy can be useful for weight loss depending on the causes of weight loss. This is especially in cases where the factors affecting weight loss go beyond making diet and lifetyle changes.

As homeopath, my ideal advice is to see both a homeopath and a nutritionist/health coach. The combination of the two is a tremendous 1-2 punch in attaining optimum health and happiness – on all levels!

  • Hi there,

    I completely agree with you. The point of homeopathy is not to address any one specific problem per se, like weight loss. But it is rather to enhance well being on all levels.

    I think people fall into the trap sometimes of thinking that if they could only lose weight they would be much happier and healthier. But it takes a multi pronged approach in order for that to happen.

    Nice Work!

    • Thanks Alec! It’s a big mistake people make with homeopathy, which is really a fundamental principle of homeopathy.

  • Hi,

    You bring up a very good point in that weight issues are related to various things. For example, if a person is eating a healthy diet and exercising but not getting enough sleep, they may still have trouble with their weight. There are also several medical conditions, such as PCOS, that can contribute to weight problems due to chemical changes in the body.

    It sounds like homeopathy can sort of reset your body chemistry and allow you a jump start to making healthier choices. Thank you for the explanation on how it could help, but might not.


  • You’re right, there are other reasons for people gaining weight that are totally unrelated to their diet. I had a relative once who lost her mother and she was recently divorced, looking after two kids by herself and though her everyday life was a challenge, she was gaining weight. It was due to the trauma of the loss of her mother right after her husband had announced the divorce. It was really hard on her.

    • Yikes, that’s rough….and definitely another proof of this idea that I mentioned. Thanks for sharing.

  • By raising weights, you are going to shed a handful of calories as well as avoid your metabolic process coming from decelerating, which is a typical adverse effects from losing weight.
