What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a medical system that respects the natural healing abilities of the body.
It is an approach that utilizes medicines that stimulate the body's own vitality and defence system to initiate the healing process.
People who have had homoeopathic treatment generally find that their state of health and well-being has improved.
They are better able to resist infection and have a greater sense of stability and individual purpose in life.
Homoeopathy has been established for about 200 years. The founder, Dr Samuel Hahnemann showed that a substance, which produces symptoms in a healthy person, could be used to treat an ill person suffering from similar symptoms -
“Similia Similibus Curenter” “Like can cure Like”.
A homeopathic remedy, when prescribed, must match your symptoms as you experience them. This also takes account of you as a person with your individual physical and emotional characteristics.
Remedies are derived from a variety of natural materials including plants and minerals and are prepared in licensed laboratories under strict quality control.
They are given in tablet, granules or powder form, and are available in different but extremely dilute strengths,
which are identified by a potency number.
Homeopathic remedies cannot cause side effects and you cannot become addicted to them. This is because only a very minute amount of the active ingredient is used in a specially prepared form.
Homeopaths assess which remedy is appropriate by conducting a very thorough interview. During this consultation, the homeopath will spend 1 hours gathering information in order to match the patient’s «disease» with one of the homeopathic «drug pictures.»
When the remedy is correct, the client may quickly experience an improved sense of well being and the eventual resolution of disease symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, hypoallergenic, natural substances which have no side effects. Homeopathy is safe to use when other types of treatments may not be recommended, such as in the case of newborn and during pregnancy.
Traditionally, a homeopathic remedy is prescribed in the form of pills that should be allowed to dissolve under the tongue for greatest absorption.
Patients should refrain from ingesting anything for at least 1/2 hours after taking the medication.
Your will usually advised to refrain from any strong smelling substances while undergoing homeopathic treatment because such substances lessen the effect of the remedy. Tea, coffee, peppermint, eucalyptus oil, camphor or menthol products are some examples of the same.
Store all remedies in cool dark places and well away from anything with a strong smell.
Conditions amenable to homeopathic treatment include anything that does not involve destroyed tissue. For example, asthma, which is an inflammatory condition, can usually be treated; Whereas, emphysema, which is the destruction of lung cells, would not be expected to respond. It may however, be reasonable to try homeopathy even in the cases of irreversible pathology as it frequently offers palliation.
Here is a brief overview of a few of the things homeopathy has successfully addressed: inflammatory conditions, auto-immune diseases, ulcers, headaches, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, seasonal affective disorder, anxiety, viral syndromes, chronic ear infections, menopausal
symptoms, eczema and many more.
An integrative approach in which conventional treatments and homeopathic medicines are used can be highly beneficial in the treatment of numerous conditions. Childbirth presents many opportunities for integrative medicine.
While the use of homeopathic medicines can sometimes prevent the need for surgery, homeopaths acknowledge that surgery is sometimes necessary.
When surgery is medically indicated, using homeopathic medicines before, during, and after the procedure can help the patient recover more rapidly.
In my practice I often combine acupuncture with homeopathy: there is a strong synergy between these two therapies, and the benefit of the two treatment applied together are very good
