Homeopathy takes a truly holistic approach to the treatment of the disease. It recognises that all the symptoms of ill-health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and hence it is the person who needs treatment for his suffering, rather than just the disease.
In simpler words, homeopathy aims at healing the whole person rather than just taking care of one or two symptoms or attacking symptoms aggressively unlike other forms of treatment. The holistic approach to medicine takes a wider view of illness, a wider view of causes of disease and they way in which people express their illness individually. Hence homeopathy can be used to treat almost anything.
One of the unique fundamental principles of homeopathy is that of individual prescription. E.g. two patients might have headaches but the way they have their headaches can be different, their overall state of health can be different, the way they cope with life can be different and so on. Hence such two patients with apparently similar illnesses may need different remedies, helping them more precisely.
Paracelsus a 16th century philosopher and physician said "Those who merely study and treat the effects of disease are like those who imagine that they can drive away the winter by brushing the snow from the door. It is not the snow that causes the winter, but the winter that causes the snow"
Homeopathic view of intimate connection of physical, emotional and mental or even spiritual illness, as all are aspects of the whole of the patients suffering, is also been now verified by researchers in modern medicine. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed according to the law of similar hence medicines act along with the natural healing process and not go against it.
The law of similar has been a part of medical practice in Greece, but Homeopathy as we know today, was first formulated two hundred years ago by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, chemist and linguist.
What are Homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are obtained from different sources of nature like plants, minerals, metals and some poisons which have been used medicinally for generations.
After initial preparation of the raw material the remedies are made by serial dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking) in a solution of water and alcohol (in small amount). This is done a few (3-4 times) or upto many thousands of times. The liquid dilution is used itself as a remedy or soaked into tablets or granules for convenience.
How do homeopathic remedies work although being dilute?
"Nature uses as httle as possible of anything famed astrologer johann kepler"
The process of succession apparently imprints the characteristic energy pattern, or blueprint, of the original substance onto the water in which it is diluted.
A homeopathic remedy acts as a signal which energises or stimulates the body's self-healing powers, mobilising the immune systems on all levels - mental, emotional and physical. Homeopathically potentised medicines (not the Bio chemic combinations) have the ability to cross the blood - brain barrier could be explained scientifically on the theory of pharmacodynamics.
Are homeopathic remedies safe?
Homeopathic medicines are made from natural sources and are diluted uniquely to such a degree that often only a molecule of the original drug substance is present; rest is only the potentised energy. They work on the body by gently boosting up the natural energy of the body. They are virtually free of side effects and toxic effects or addiction.
They can be safely given to newborns, pregnant women and to sensitive persons.
