About Homeopathy

Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, that originated in Europe is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy is a science that was discovered way back in 1790 by a German physician called Dr Samuel Hahnemann.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

Homeopathy is a complementary therapy that aims to treat illnesses with preparations called remedies, which are made from plants, minerals, metals, and other materials

Homeopathy is based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not really separate and distinct, but are actually fully integrated.

Another important principle in homeopathy is that each of us is unique. The same diet, the same advice and the same homeopathic remedy will not necessarily help everyone with the same disease. Homeopathy treats the individual and not the disease.

Note: All reasons noted based on personal views/experiences, it should be checked & verified. The result of homoeopathic treatment may vary person to person, also depends on the physician concerned.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.

He began experimenting on himself and a group of healthy volunteers, giving smaller and smaller medicinal doses, and found that as well as reducing toxicity, the medicines actually appeared to be more effective the lower the dose. He also observed that symptoms caused by toxic ‘medicines’ such as mercury, were similar to those of the diseases they were being used to treat e.g. syphilis, which lead to the principle he described as ‘like cures like’.

Homeopathy is still considered a form of alternative medicine. The concept is that substances that cause symptoms in healthy people, such as raw onions causing sore, tearful eyes, can be used in extreme dilution to treat illnesses which cause the same symptoms. In this example, extract of raw onion could be used as an ingredient (extremely diluted) in a remedy to treat colds, flu, or other illnesses that produce the same symptoms

Homeopathy is a system of medical therapy that uses very small doses of medicines, or remedies. These remedies are prepared from substances found in nature. Nevertheless, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine. These two systems of medicine are very different. Herbal medicine uses tinctures of botanical substances, whereas homeopaths use ultradilute ‘micro’doses made from not only plants, but minerals or any other substance found in nature.

Homeopathy deals with the root cause of the disease. Instead of suppressing the symptoms it tries to remove the basic cause of the disease, so that the person gets completely cured
