In the same way, these amazing homeopathic physicians also found a "generic" homeopathic treatment for general facial neuralgia. While it was developed for people suffering from postherpetic neuralgia (which in some cases can turn into  severe, long-lasting pain which no longer responds to medical therapy), trigeminal neuralgia is such an extremely serious issue that I have included the Banerji approach for postherpetic neuralgia here for the possible solution to trigeminal neuralgia pain it could offer. (For homeopathic remedies specifically recommended for this issue, scroll to "Homeopathic medicines for trigeminal neuralgia".

The Banerji Protocol for facial neuralgia:

  • Tarentula cubensis 200C: take 10 drops in 1 tbs of water every 7 days.
  • Hypericum perforatum 200CK: take 2 pills twice daily.
  • In acute cases, give 2 doses every hour against the pain.
  • Take each remedy until symptoms are improved.
  • All doses must be given 30 minutes before or after eating, drinking or tooth-brushing.

The first choice for trigeminal neuralgia located on the cheek, temporo-maxillary joint and ear, as well as when the facial pain comes in flashes or returns at the same hour every day.

The Banerji Protocols — A New Method of Treatment with Homeopathic Medicines

(Above book title contains my Amazon affiliate link). I can't recommend this book highly enough, as well as its follow-up by Nimisha Parekh "Additional Banerji Protocols from the Clinic" (remedies for many additional complaints not listed in the original Banerji protocols book).

I feel that homeopathy is one of the most potent and effective while inexpensive treatment modalities available to mankind.
