The homeopathic remedy radium brom. is primarily used to treat skin disorders, including acne, dermatitis, eczema, skin cancer, ulcers, moles as well as acne rosacea (an unceasing inciting disease generally occurring in middle age and resulting in the facial skin to become unusually flushed and, at times, pustular). This homeopathic medicine is also effective in treating symptoms, such as itchy skin and burning sensation in the skin that may be accompanied by ulceration and related to the patient's deep desire for cool air. In such cases, the patients endure pain on alternate sides of the body. Homeopathic medicine practitioners also prescribe radium brom. to treat bone cancer, lumbago, arthritis (chronic soreness in the lower or lumbar region of the back or loins) as well as arthritis accompanied by a monotonous throbbing pain in the bones and joints. In addition, this homeopathic medicine has also been found to be useful in treating rheumatism (a health condition characterized by soreness or pain in muscles, joints or fibrous tissue), gout and common skin affections, including naevi (any inherited abnormality of the skin). It may be noted that in homeopathy, radium brom. is also the main cure for a variety of rheumatic problems, such as osteoarthritis, chronic rheumatoid arthritis, gout as well as spondylosis (a condition marked by immobility and fusion of vertebral joints). People affected by rheumatism experience intense pain in all the joints of the body, especially in the knee and the ankles. They also have a tender and exhausted feeling in the arms, legs and neck. These parts of the body may appear to be hard and fragile as if they would break when the patient undertakes any movement. In addition, people affected by rheumatism have a sensation as though they have a physical disability at the back and in the region between the neck and arms as well as in the lumbo-sacral (related to the lumbar vertebrae and the sacrum) region. They also endure severe pain in cervical vertebrae and the symptom deteriorates when the patients bends his/ her head in the onward direction. On the other hand, the symptoms improve when the patients are either sitting in an erect position or standing. In some cases, nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys) is related to symptoms of rheumatism and the patient experiences debility, fatigue and weariness in such case. All the conditions and related symptoms discussed here can be cured using radium brom. As aforementioned, the homeopathic remedy radium brom. is also effective in treating a range of skin disorders.
