WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?

'SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURRENTUR'= 'LIKE CURES LIKE'

Homeopathy is an alternative method of treatment, which has been used for over 200 years. It is a scientific, safe and extremely effective method of healing. I believe that homeopathy is the system of healing suited to all, the rich and the poor, the young and the old and for people in any place or climate. The aim of every science of healing is the relief of the sick. Every system is successful in its own fashion. Homeopathy develops the resistance to fight the sickness and does so with remarkable results. There are no toxic effects of the drugs and they have rarely any side effects.

HOW DID HOMEOPATHY BEGIN?

The story of homeopathy begins with SAMUEL CHRISTIAN HAHNEMANN (1755-1843) He was an orthodoxly qualified German physician, who became dissatisfied with the medical practices of his day, which consisted large doses of drugs. He therefore looked for alternative forms of treatment that would be better but for a long time he was unsuccessful and for many years he abandoned the practice of medicine altogether. Towards the end of 18th century, however, he conducted an experiment on himself, he took some cinchona bark (quinine) to see what would happen. To his surprise, he experienced for a few hours, the symptoms of Malaria, perhaps he thought, quinine cures Malaria because it can produce the symptoms of Malaria in a healthy person. The idea was the germ of homeopathy.

THE PRINCIPLE:--

The principle of the medicine is given by DR. SAMUEL HAHNEMANN, and is derived from a greek word 'Homoeos'= similar and 'Pathos'= suffering. This is based on the principle- 'SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURRENTUR' - which also means 'like cures likes'. An illness is treated with the medicine, which would produce similar symptoms in a healthy person. The active ingredients are given in a highly dilute form to avoid toxicity, which means that homeopathic remedies are extremely safe. The principle is not new as it was known to the ancient Indian physicians and is mentioned in the Vedas also.

WHAT IS USED IN MEDICINES ?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses natural substance mostly derived from plants, mineral and animal kingdom. Metals like Gold, Silver, Platinum and minerals like Sulphur, Arsenic and Antimony have all been made to serve the mission of homeopathy. Substances available in the plants, mineral or animal kingdoms have been transformed by potentisation into invaluable medicines for acute as well as chronic problems. Remedies are prescribed in different potencies (or strengths). Remedies may be given in the liquid form or in the form of powders or pills.

HOW THE MEDICINES WORK?

A homoeopathic medicine acts as a signal that energizes or stimulates the body's self-healing powers mobilizing the defense system and working on metal, emotional and physical aspects of the body.

NO SIDE EFFECTS

It is the body's energy level which is influenced and the medicines do not cause any side-effects even if it is taken for a long time. Medicines do not hamper the digestion.

HOW THE MEDICINES ARE GIVEN?

Medicines are prescribed in different strength or potencies as they are called. The lower potencies have been subjected to the less dilution and succession than the higher ones and are not as powerful and long lasting in their effects. Remedies may be given in the liquid form or in the form of powder or pills.

SCOPE OF HOMEOPATHY:

The aim of every science of healing is the relief of the sick. Homeopathy is successful in treating a wide range of conditions, often after conventional medicine has failed. In modern practice, homeopathy and conventional medicines are not in conflict but complementary; in most instances they may be used together. Because homeopathy encourages the body's own natural healing responses, rather than treating symptoms alone, practitioners have found that it offers a stimulating and rewarding approach to patient care. Homeopathy has particular value in management of chronic conditions that do not respond well to conventional treatments. What homeopathy can treat cannot be completely listed, however a few disease conditions commonly met with the easily amenable to homeopathy are:

The ailments like cold, cough, influenza, allergies, sinusitis, rhinities, headaches, vomiting, diarrhoea, dysentry, colic, tonsillities, bronchities, breathlessness, measles, mumps, dentition problems, otitis-media (pus from ear), gastro-enterities (Vomiting-diarrhoea), acidity, gases, urticaria, recurrent urinary tract infection, joints pain,, bad effects of injuiries-sprains, urticaria, pimples, corns, warts, psoriasis, eczema,etc. are successfully treated with homeopathy.

Homeopathy has its own scope and limitations.
