Homoeopathy is an alternate medicine system based on three main principles. These are;
1. That like cures like. This means that if the symptoms of your cold present the same as the symptoms for a case of mercury poisoning, your
homoeopathic remedy would include mercury. This principle is widely used throughout mainstream medicine with the use of vaccines and antidotes.
2. Minimal Dosage is required. The amount of substance used in each remedy is extremely dilute, often on part remedy to 1,000,000,000,000 parts of
water. It has been found that the more dilute the homoeopathic remedy is, the more effective it is in treating illness.
3. A single remedy is used. This means that no matter how many symptoms you present with, only one remedy will be prescribed for all symptoms.
Homoeopathy is a wholistic medicine that aims to treat the whole person by addressing the cause instead of the symptoms alone. The concept of disease
in homoeopathy is that disease is a total affection of mind and body, the disturbance of the whole organism. Individual organs are not the
cause of illness but disturbance at the inner level (disturbance of the life force, the vital energy of the body) is the cause of illness. A single remedy will
then be used to, treat the disturbance of the whole person. Instead of treating each symptom with a different medicine, as is usually the case in
conventional medicine. In many cases this means that once a particular symptom has been treated with homoeopathic remedies, the symptom will not
Homeopathy is completely safe, usually has no side effects and does not cause any structural damage. Homoeopathic remedies are not addictive and
should not be taken once the symptom has subsided. Homoeopathic remedies can be taken along side other medication without creating unwanted
side effects, and when the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid and permanent.
Homeopathic remedies act by stimulating the body’s own defense mechanism to heal. The system works in harmony with your immune system, unlike
some conventional medicines which suppress the immune system. For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex which is your body’s
attempt to clear the lungs.
The remedies are easy to administer and usually come in the form of a sweet sugar-of -milk pill, which adults and children can take. Infants can also
benefit from homoeopathic remedies by diluting the pill into a teaspoon of water and then administering.
The only downside to homoeopathy is that the exact remedy for your symptoms needs to be prescribed in order for you to have rapid and complete
recovery. For this to happen the remedy needs to be matched to where your symptoms occurs, what brings it on, what type of pain it is, what
it, what makes it feel worse, your state of mind and what other symptoms you experience. Therefore this may take a little more
time than conventional medicine, where a prescription can be given to ease, but not cure your symptoms almost immediately.
