Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat colic or pain in abdomen but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to treat colic or pain in abdomen that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints.  For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. There are following remedies which are helpful in the treatment of colic or pain in abdomen:

Cocculus – nervous colic, worse at night, accompanied by flatulence, but discharge of flatus gives no relief, as more is constantly formed. Same pain in right hypochondria, worse bending forward. Constipation is an accompaniment. Menstrual colic, pain in lower part of abdomen with a disposition to relapse. Hysterical colic.

Nux Vomica – haemorrhoidal colic or colic from accumulation of flatus, pressing up and down; spasmodic colic from flatulence. Deep seated hypogastric pain, abdomen hard and drawn in, not distended. Comic from dietetic errors or in brandy or coffee drinkers; pains worse on motion; pains pinching and contractive, gripping as if intestines were rubbed between stones.

Chamomilla – suits especially colic in women and children, colic with hot cheeks, red face, and perspiration presiding an attack of intestinal catarrh. Colic from anger, worse from warmth, flatulent colic. There is atony of the digestive apparatus and digestion is at standstill; the neuralgia is peripheral and the abdomen distended like a drum.

Belladonna – colic of infants is well met by this remedy. The child bends backwards and screams, and the transverse colon protrudes like a pad. There is congestion of the intestine. It is rather enteritis than an enteralgia.

Plumbum Met – abdominal pain radiating in all direction, walls drawn in; this, however, is not essentially a nervous colic. There are cramps in the legs and obstinate constipation accompanies but, not flatulence. The abdomen is as hard as a stone, sensation as if the abdominal wall were drawn to back by string, better from rubbing and hard pressure. Lead produces one of the most violent colic of any drug and this colic is sometimes difficult to cure.
