FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy believes that no two individuals are alike whether in health or in disease. Therefore no two cases of the same disease are exactly alike. Difference of manifestation in symptoms and modalities always exists. This is commonly seen in two cases of viral fever in the same household. One may require warm drinks while the other may feel better by cold drinks. You may be a person who is thin, and easily excited, or the docile, sedentary sort. It is these differences which give each case its individuality and creates the need for an individual remedy. Homeopathic treatment takes notes of uncommon, peculiar, striking symptoms for the diagnosis of the patient. It does not treat a disease that the patient has, but rather treats the patient that has a disease.
Is Homeopathy safe?
Unlike conventional medicines which often have many side effects, Homeopathic remedies have no side effects because of the dilution of the extract. Viral infections such as common cold, influenza, measles, chickenpox, mumps, viral hepatitis (jaundice), viral meningitis, etc. are very well treated with Homeopathy because they treat the condition while stimulating and strengthening the body’s immune system. Conventional allopathic medicine has no curative treatment for viral diseases except infusing antibiotics under the pretext of preventing secondary bacterial infection, which often has the effect of decreasing the body’s immunity to bacteria and causing more susceptibility to illness.
What can I expect when I start Homeopathic treatment?
A session with a Homeopathic doctor is a unique experience for someone accustomed to conventional medicine. For instance, you may suffer from chronic headaches such as migraines. While the conventional medical treatment for this condition is the same as for most everyone (some form of analgesics or anti-inflammatories), Homeopathy recognizes over two hundred symptom patterns associated with headaches, and has corresponding remedies for each. The first task of the Homoepathic practitioner is a process called "profiling", or recording all of the qualities - physical, mental, and emotional – that will determine the patient’s remedy or combination of remedies. It is very important that the Homeopath gets as much detail about the patient as a whole and their current symptoms in order to be able to assist them.
If you have used conventional medicines to treat your symptoms in the past, it is a possibility that symptoms that were suppressed through the use of antibiotics or other suppressants will re-occur on the body’s path to healing them permanently. As those symptoms re-appear your body will act to heal them naturally thereby eliminating them from your system.By a special mode of preparation called "potentisation", over 2,500 Homeopathic medicines are parepared from sources such as vegetables, animal, mineral, chemicals, etc. Homeopathic remedies with their ultra minute doses are non toxic, absolutely harmless and bring about a safe process of healing.
