Homeopathy is the science and art of Therapeutic system of healing, guided by the principles of nature, discovered and gradually evolved by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German allopathic M.D in 1790.
Homeopathic medicines are proved on healthy human beings and the signs and symptoms are recorded in a book called Materia Medica. The major advantages of homeopathic medicines are that there are no side effects as there are no material doses in it. The medicines are potentized (ie. optimally diluted with non-medicinal base media) and are in the dynamic form, and administered mostly as sweet pills and a few bitter tinctures. Since homeopathic medicines are proved on human beings, it gives more importance to the mental symptoms, the type of the disease, their emotions, feelings, likes, dislikes, etc.
Homeopathy treats the Individual with the Disease and not just the Disease. Every disease manifests differently in different patients. It is this Differentiating symptoms and signs, which are important to a Homoeopath, to prescribe the Right Medicine.
Any peculiar, rare, uncommon signs or thoughts or feelings or likes or dislikes or disagrees or emotions are to be brought to the notice of a Homoeopathic physician, irrespective of the complaints they seek to be treated.
Generally, Homoeopathy believes that a person is attacked by a disease when his immune system or his vitality, weakens due to multi-varied reasons like emotional cause, environmental causes etc. Every individual is blessed with a Natural Immunity from Birth to protect the system from any disease. It is when, this Immune system or the “Vital force” is deranged, and we end up with diseases. Homeopathy helps in altering this Altered Immune System back to normalcy, thereby enabling us to regain the Vitality to fight against the invading enemies. Thus, Homoeopathy treats the patient from the root cause without any harmful doses but with doses which are just enough to put the health back on track, after which the patient’s immunity takes care of.
Homeopathy is one of the most rational sciences with respect to its concepts of health, disease, and cure. Homeopathy does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals the patient from within.
Homeopathy is not limited to certain diseases but is universally applicable to all kinds of diseases. It is time when people must be made fully aware of the benefits and the scope of homeopathy in various day-to-day diseases.
Homeopathy should be more and more made available to the benefit of ailing persons, as it can positively help 90% of the diseases we have today.
Undoubtedly, homeopathy is the medicine of the future.
