To obtain the best results of homeopathic
treatment, one should resort to homeopathy in the early stage of the
disease. Due to ignorance and lack of awareness in general public about
the homeopathic System of Treatment and its effectiveness in many
diseases ranging from Common Cold to Cancer, patients
approach homeopathy very late and expect miraculous results.
Unfortunately by this time the disease process has advances to an irreversible
stage and homeopathy can offer little, to the otherwise curable
disorders. However timely given homeopathic treatment could be a blessing to
the ailing humanity.
Homeopathy is a system
of healing based on the theory of "Similia Similibus Curenter" like
[diseases] is to be cured by like [remedies]. In view of many errors and
misinterpretations that exist concerning Homeopathy, one major
falsity should be avoided at all costs: "We are not dealing with a law of
similarity in the form of a generally applicable rule of physics or natural
phenomenon on which Homoeopathy purports to be based, but rather with a simple
instruction on how to act or with a practical guideline for procedures, in
order to "Cure in a Mild, Prompt, Safe and Durable manner".
There are 5 basic
principles of homoeopathy Medicine itself is founded. These classical
- Physician First Do No Harm
- Remove the (primary) cause of disease
- Vix Medicatrix Nature (it is the process
of life itself that heals; the healing power of nature)
- Homeopathy Remedies: Source &
The homoeopathic medicines
are prepared from a wide range of natural sources. Over 75% of the medicines have
their origin from the vegetable kingdom. Rests of the Homoeopathic Medicines
are prepared from chemicals, minerals, animal kingdom, nosodes and somebody
secretion such as the hormones.
The method of medicine preparation in homoeopathy,
called as Potentisation, utilizes a medicinal substance obtained from initial
substances found in the plant, animal or any other kingdom through a specific
preparation /manufacturing procedure. A very small portion of any medicinal substance, as
one part, is mixed with 99 parts of alcohol or distilled water. Some powerful
strokes are giving to this mixture of about 100 drops/ml. It makes so called 1c
potency. Now, out of these 100 drops, one drop is taken and mixed with 99 drops
of alcohol, again to undergo the process of vigorous strokes, making the
potency 2c. The process is continued higher level up to 30c, 200c, 1000c,
10000c, 50000c, 100000c. Although this method makes use of a continuous
dilution or reduction in proportional quantity of medicinal substance in its
different vehicle. It is the experience of homoeopaths throughout the world
that at least within certain limits the effects of the preparations thus
obtained don't depend on their degree of dilution. In fact practice has shown
that these drugs posses an inherent "potency" or effectiveness which
increases their suitability as homoeopathic drugs. From this one can realize
that there is infinitesimal original drug substance in the higher potency
medicines. Actually it crosses the Avogadro's limit. There is no detectable
material in the potency higher than 24. What is left behind is the power or
energy of the medicine. One may call it dynamic power, which is capable to
induce definite changes in the body system to bring about the healing process.
Homeopathy: Law of Cure
- Symptoms disappear in reverse order of
- Cure occurs from the more vital organs
to the least vital and from the interior of the body toward the skin.
- Cure occurs from top of the body
Homeopathy: Working fast or
Homeopathy is fast acting in acute conditions
such as infections, fever, diarrhea, etc. The chronic and old disease such as
psoriasis take a long time to treat hence homeopathy has been labeled
as slow acting. One may say that homeopathy may be slower than the
effect of steroids. One must know that homeopathy is faster in the
treatment of conditions where modern system of medicine is unable to satisfy
the patients such as allergy, asthma, eczema, migraine, psoriasis,
Hypertension, Diabetes, Orthopedic Disorders etc. It is a myth that
Homoeopathy is useful only for the chronic conditions and has no role for acute
ailments. Homeopathy is a great alternative medicine for acute
diseases. In fact, almost 50% of practice of any
professional Homeopath consists of acute ailments varying form
cough-cold-fever to otitis media, pneumonia, tonsillitis, hepatitis, sinusitis,
etc. in India.
diseases or symptoms?
The common belief is that
Homoeopathic medicines sometimes cause initial aggravation of symptoms. This
however, is not totally true. The fact is that homoeopathic medicines first
create an artificial similar symptomatology which in turn fight with the
original symptomatology paving the way for cure. Patients with chronic diseases
who had been taking palliative (allopathic) treatment including steroids,
invariably report long drawn aggravation which is due to the withdrawal effect
of the medicines. That is why it is always suggested to withdraw these
medicines gradually after getting improvement of the case with homoeopathic
medicines. In chronic cases where there is long standing suppression of
different symptoms, old symptoms tend to appear during the phase of recovery.
This phenomenon is mostly found in chronic skin diseases and medicinal
dependent disease like Hyper/Hypo functioning of Thyroid, Rheumatoid Arthritis
and not everywhere.
Homoeopathy treats the
Not exactly! In Homoeopathy
equal importance is given to symptoms of the patient as well as clinical
diagnosis of the disease. In Homoeopathy the clinical diagnosis is not the only
basis for prescribing medicines but individual patients mental state, behavior,
his/her food habits climatic changes, social economic conditions, color and
even sometimes racial characteristics makes a difference in treating the
patient homeopathically. That is why in two similar well diagnosed cases the
homoeopathy medicine may not the same.
Homeopathy can be safely taken without side effects
or interactions with prescription drugs. However, you should consult your
physician and a homeopath before you do so.
Homoeopathy & Diet
Dietary restrictions are
required while taking homoeopathic medicines in case-to-case basis. Generally,
coffee and camphor products are restricted due to their antidoting effect to
the entire vegetable kingdom medicines. External applications containing
camphor and canthradine hair oil also antidotes the effect of vegetable kingdom
medicines. The latest research advices the diet restrictions according to the
blood group of each patients in each disease paves a way for speedy recovery.
Homeopathic medicines safe?
The mode of preparation of homeopathic medicines is
such that the medicines are repeatedly diluted and succussed to enhance the
inherent curative powers of natural substances. By this method the material
quantity of natural substances is reduced to minimal thereby reducing their
Is it possible to take conventional
medicines along with Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy can be taken along with conventional
medicines like antihypertensive, insulin, dietary supplements or other
medicines which the body is used to for years and need a slow withdrawal.
However certain conventional medicines like antibiotics and skin ointments and
lotions are restricted as they interfere with Homeopathic medicines.
Are there too many dietary
restrictions with Homoeopathy?
It is a myth that there are lots of dietary
restrictions with homeopathic medicines like onions, garlic, coffee etc. There
are only few medicines which get antidoted by certain food products nothing
applies as a rule and in most cases no dietary restrictions apply..
Can Homeopathic medicines be taken
safely for children and during pregnancy?
It is absolutely safe to take homeopathic medicines
for children and during pregnancy; in fact Homoeopathy is helpful in treating
various pregnancy and post delivery ailments.
How can Homoeopathy work if there are
no molecules of the original substance left in the medicine?
Unlike other forms of medicine, Homoeopathy does not
work on the material level. We believe, and there is mounting evidence to
suggest, that Homoeopathy is what is known as an 'energy medicine'. Experiments
in the area of quantum physics, that is, at the sub-molecular level, tend to
support our theory that Homoeopathy is rather like a message to the body to
Isn't it dangerous to use poisonous
It is easy to confuse Homoeopathy with herbalism,
because in fact we also use plants in our medicines. Herbalists use tinctures
(crude doses), but, although some medicinal plants are POTENTIALLY poisonous,
our medicine is diluted so much that there is no chance of toxicity from them.
Can Homoeopathy treat serious
diseases such as cancer?
There has been little research in this area to date,
and let's be honest, most people with life-threatening illnesses see medical
specialists first. However, it is important to realize that Homoeopathy is a
complementary medicine and is frequently used alongside conventional treatments
in such cases. Homoeopathy can reduce the side-effects of cancer treatments,
and makes a valuable contribution to the care of cancer patients.
Can I have Homoeopathy instead of
This is an area for which we do have evidence. Yes,
Homoeopathy is a real alternative to HRT, but the prescription must be
individualized to the patient. Homeopaths treat hot flushes, hormonal
mood-swings, depression, headaches, itching and other menopausal problems. They
often suggest lifestyle changes and give dietary advice too.
How do we know Homoeopathy works?
Could it just be a placebo?
There have been some important trials done in Glasgow
which demonstrate that Homoeopathy is not simply a placebo. Remember that all
medicines can behave as placebos...especially the colored ones! The experience
of many homeopaths over the past 200 years is that we achieve much higher
success rates than can be attributed to placebo along. Homoeopathy has also
been demonstrated to work on animals and as we are frequently asked to treat
babies and small children, we are convinced it is not just a placebo. We do
desperately need more trials into Homoeopathy. A big research effort is
currently taking place at Sheffield University to establish the kind of
research model we need to properly investigate its efficacy.
How do you find out what a medicine
can help with?
The medicines are tested on healthy adults who
volunteer to test a new remedy. All their symptoms are reported and graded.
This, along with clinical evidence of effectiveness, goes to form the 'picture'
of a remedy that we can match to a patient suffering from a similar set of
symptoms. However this is not easy - we have over 3000 medicines to choose
Is it true that homeopaths don't
agree with vaccination?
It's not as simple as those...homeopaths specialize in
the treatment of individuals and their unique responses to disease. So we work
with a different health model from the conventional one, which aims to increase
"herd immunity". The Society of Homeopaths acknowledges that there is
much anecdotal and scientific evidence to support the arguments presented for
and against vaccination. We believe that parents should be supported in making
rational informed decisions on the short and long term implications of
vaccination. Whether to have your child vaccinated or not is a very personal
choice and an educated decision should be made based on the individual needs of
each child. One size does not fit all. Vaccination is not necessarily the right
decision for each child nor is it necessarily bad for the majority.
Can you treat pregnant women and
Yes. Homoeopathy comes into its own when we treat
common problems of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, back-ache and fatigue.
Because the medicines are safe, even very small babies can be treated, for
things such as failure to feed, indigestion and colic.
What do doctors think about
Doctors are becoming increasingly open-minded about
Homoeopathy and where Homoeopathy is integrated in the NHS, the majority of
doctors welcome it. Most private health insurance companies will allow
referrals to registered homeopaths.
Should I tell my GP that I am
proposing to consult a homeopath?
This is a personal decision. Many GPs are open to
complementary and alternative therapies. While you are on homeopathic treatment
your symptoms are likely to change or disappear, and you may not need all or
some of the drugs you may have been taking so far. Sometimes your GP may
already have advised you to reduce whatever you are taking but be aware that
any change in your prescribed medication must be discussed with your GP in
advance. I am happy to write a letter to your GP to inform him about your
homeopathic treatment if you so wish.
Do I have to stop the drugs I am
Absolutely not. Homoeopathy is a complementary system
of medicine and as such it can be used as an alternative treatment or where
necessary it can work beautifully alongside orthodox medicine and can alleviate
symptoms from pharmaceutical drugs. There are some drugs, especially those
which suppress symptoms (for example cortisone-based creams for eczema; the
contraceptive pill; HRT) which can make homeopathic treatment more difficult
and slower. But the homeopath has many methodologies and has ways to overcome
these obstacles. I repeat, it is vital to always consult your prescribing
doctor regarding any changes in medication.
