5 Homeopathic Remedies for Weight Loss

lose weight per month

Weight loss is one of the most popular health topics. It seems that almost everybody at some point in their life is trying to figure out how to lose weight, and there are a lot of different ways you can approach weight loss. Some people swear by switching up their diet. Some people swear by taking their exercise to the next level. If you google “weight loss,” you will be amazed at the different options you’ll see of methods to try and lose weight, including homeopathic remedies for weight loss. 

However, what works for one person may not work for another. That’s because different bodies react to different things in different ways, so if you see someone who does yoga 4 days a week and loses 10 pounds, that doesn’t automatically mean you can expect the same thing to happen to you. 

Don’t Fall Victim to the Fad.

While it’s great that there are a plethora of options when it comes to losing weight, it is important to note that not all of them are healthy. Fad diets are typically something you want to stay away from, as they may bring you temporary weight loss but are oftentimes hard to maintain in the long run. They often demand unrealistic expectations (we’re looking at the diets that allow you to only consume juices for a week straight) and give you quick results that won’t last. 

You may see some weight loss in the short period that you follow the strict diet regimen, but the minute you go back to any sort of normal eating habits, the weight typically comes back with it.  

Thus, many people are turning to homeopathic remedies for weight loss that are much safer than taking diet pills (who knows what is actually in those things) and can help you build healthier habits around diet and exercise that promote a healthy weight for the long term.

Here are some of the top homeopathic remedies to try today. 

Homeopathic Weight Loss Remedies

Though these are not guaranteed ways of losing weight, they may be worth a try to see if they spark something in you.

Calcarea Carbonica

The main reason that some people who try homeopathic remedies for weight loss see results is likely because the remedies help to clear up blockages. 

Many people struggle with weight issues because they have digestive issues and/or have problems with their metabolism. 

Calcarea carbonica may be able to help with that. This remedy is essentially impure calcium carbonate and is made from the middle layer of shells. It is intended primarily for people who find that most of their weight sits in the stomach area and tend to sweat at night. 

Other signs that your body may need Calcarea carbonica include:

  • High anxiety
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweaty head
  • Hungry right after eating


According to a study in the National Library of Medicine, lycopodium “is a widely used homeopathic medicine for the liver, urinary, and digestive disorders.”

Those who struggle with hypothyroidism may find that lycopodium helps them, as well as people who suffer from gastric issues such as constipation and flatulence. 

People who need lycopodium typically crave sweets and have a love for hot drinks and food. They may also eat far more than necessary at meals, which leaves their stomach feeling bloated and uncomfortable.

This homeopathic remedy is best for those who struggle with anemia and often crave a lot of salt. It is also best for those whose weight tends to accumulate in their thighs and buttocks. 

You may also see some benefits from taking natrum mur if you experience the following:

  • Struggles with heat
  • Weight gain due to depression and stress
  • Anemia

Nux Vomica

If you find that you have been living a sedentary life and your weight has become an issue, you may want to try nux vomica. Constipation typically goes along with a sedentary lifestyle, and nux vomica may be able to help with that. 

Consider trying this remedy if you experience the following:

  • Cravings for spicy food
  • Cravings for fried food
  • Inability to handle cold
  • Constipation


Perimenopause and menopause can cause weight gain for many women. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to get rid of that extra weight. 

Graphites may be able to help you with that. This homeopathic remedy is made from carbon and helps some with chronic constipation. 

This remedy may be the right pick for you if you are experiencing the following:

  • Sadness
  • Inability to handle cold air
  • Excessive salt in your diet
