Homeopathy

October 4, 2016

Dating back to the 18th century, Homeopathic medicine is perhaps one of most conventional but unique methods of providing a cure for a variety of ailments. Commonly prescribed as sweet-tasting miniscule white pills, Homeopathic medicine was created by German physician Samuel Hahnemann by using the method of “symptom similarity”.

Initially the notion about Homeopathy working in a similar manner to placebos created controversy about the alternative healing method, however, over time the medical practice has produced positive results. Hahnemann believed the reasons for illnesses to be a phenomenon he termed “miasms” and the homeopathic “remedies” can address these problems.

Homeopathic medicine is made using the process of homeopathic dilution and homeopaths believe that the substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in a healthy person will cure the symptoms in a sick person. When preparing the medicine, homeopaths will speak in detail with their patients, not just in regard to their symptoms but also to discuss their personality traits, psychological state and their past. They will then consult their reference books, known as ‘asrepertories’, as well as keeping in mind all the information received from the patients, and create the medicine. Each medicine is created specifically for the person in question and cannot be shared with someone even though they may share the same illness and symptoms.

Alternative medicine experts believe that the diseases of the modern world are due to the lack of immune reaction within the body. Failure of the immune responses to antigens and/or bacteria result in viruses attacking the body and the body fails to fight them. This can largely be attributed to an unhealthy lifestyle as well as lack of exercise and an increased dependency on antibiotics and other drugs. The role of homeopathic medicine is immune modulation and boosting the body’s immune system. According to homeopaths, a strong immune system enhanced by the use of alternative medicine can instantly respond to any antigenic attack, including the release of the stress related hormone in the brain, Serotonin. Homeopaths claim that the medicine works against any illness in the system and does not allow it to stay long enough to become chronic.

Homeopathy treats common illnesses such as constipation as well as more complex ones such as anxiety and life-threatening illnesses. The unique healing process of homeopathy, though it takes longer than conventional medicine to show effect, has been witnessed throughout centuries. A stronger immune system due to use of homeopathic medicine ensures a stronger and healthier body over time.
