It is simply the use of a non-toxic, natural substance known as a homeopathic remedy to stimulate the healing ability within a person.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine initiated by Dr. Samuel Hahneman in the 1700’s and it is based on the principle of like cures like – What symptoms a substance can cause it can also cure.
A homeopathic remedy is an FDA approved medicine that contains a very dilute substance. When given to someone who is healthy, a homeopathic remedy can bring about the same symptoms it can cure. When given to someone suffering from those symptoms, the body is stimulated to heal on its own and the symptoms resolve. Hence, the name, the Law of Similars, or like cures like.
There are no side effects of homeopathic remedies as are often seen in the application of pharmaceuticals. There are no interactions to worry about and these remedies are safe to use on the youngest and most elderly patients. Homeopathic treatment can be used to treat people suffering from the most minor of symptoms, such as a cold, to the very severe like cancer. Of course, the skill of the homeopathic doctor will dictate which types of conditions they choose to treat.
Many people, suffering from a wide range of health problems, can benefit from homeopathic treatment. This system of medicine has a long history and great success helping people who suffer from the symptoms of many acute and chronic diseases. In addition, homeopathy can be used in conjunction with many conventional treatments.
When you visit a homeopath, they will “take your case”. Taking your case involves a thorough and detailed discussion in which many details about you as a person and the symptoms you experience are gathered. Your case is then studied and the most appropriate homeopathic remedy is choosen. You will be given the remedy, with instructions regarding how to take it and then your case will be followed or in other words, your progress will be monitored very carefully as you move towards optimum health.
Using homeopathy to treat people suffering from the symptoms of disease requires training as it is critical to choose the remedy that covers the case as close as possible. There are over 2000 different homeopathic remedies each of which must be carefully selected and prescribed on an individual basis. If the incorrect remedy is chosen there may be no result. In addition, knowing how to follow the case can be even more important than the prescription of the initial remedy. Understanding when to give another dose of the medicine, or when to increase the strength or even being able to determine when to switch to a different remedy makes the difference in whether homeopathic treatment is successful. Only a trained and experienced homeopath that knows how to follow your case can get consistent and successful results.
