Definitely yes, Homeopathy is a specialized science based on sound logic and vast experimental data. It is the only medicinal science where drugs are proven on healthy human and not on animals. Human beings is able to communicate their accurate feelings during the drug proving while animals cannot. Unlike conventional medicine, where animal experimentation forms the basis of evaluation of drug pathogenesis including controls, from both sexes and age group between 18-60 years. This is the basic difference.
Proving of a drug substance is a unique process in Homoeopathy that makes the science ahead from others. The principles of Homeopathy have been derived and authenticated by vast clinical experiments. Homeopathic pharmacopoeia lists more than 4000 remedies, whose clinical efficiency has been proved in various clinical trials conducted all over the world.
The actual duration of treatment depends upon the nature of the disease and immunity the patient. Treatment may require justified time so as to improve the resistance of the body to fight diseases. All these factors are considered during treatment for patient’s improvement. Once the improving starts, we stop the medicines and the natural immunity will take care of the rest of the problems..
Detailed history or case taking is essential part as this divine science believes in treating the individual and not the disease. So the homeopathic physician needs to pen-down everything he can, about the individual. Chronic diseases are found due to suppression of skin affections or emotions; hence thorough cross examination as well as investigation will reveal whether any past suppressed ailments have lead to the present illnesses.
There are numerous incidents that influence our life. Knowing them gives an idea about the patient as a person, his characteristics, liking-disliking and helps the physician to reach to prescribe the accurate remedy.
Patient is only advised to avoid eating or drinking anything 15 minutes before and after taking homeopathic medicine. One has to avoid coffee, raw onion and raw garlic, eating mint, camphor and menthol as these can hinder the action of the homeopathic medicine or antidote the effects of the medicine. It is not applicable always but restricted to certain medicines.
In some cases there little initial aggravation may be noticed but it is a good sign that shows the medicine is right chosen and has started action. But this can be effectively handled with smart prescription by the Homeopathic physician.
Homeopathy is a healing art based on the principle that “like cures like.” Homeopathic practitioners prescribe extremely diluted remedies based on the patient’s condition that would provoke the same symptoms in healthy patients. These same substances remove an unhealthy patient’s symptoms. Accordingly, mistaken diagnosis can result in negative side effects.
But occurrences are less. So to avoid unwanted side effects, it is safer to get treatment under competent medical supervision.
The patient should not stop the medicines suddenly whatever he is taking. It should be tapered down gradually & once the improvement is noticed should be withdrawn under guidance of consulting physician. Homeopathy is not exclusive and can be used along with conventional and complementary treatments. Certain drugs such as anti-hypertensive, drugs for cardiac or diabetic disorders, schizophrenia, epilepsy or other life-saving drugs need to be continued even with Homeopathic medicines. Others, alike antibiotics should not be discontinued before completing the course while to start homeopathy medicine.
In some cases where life saving medicine cannot be discontinued, both the medicines have to be continued for the benefit of the patient.
Yes. It is utmost important to diagnose the disease but remedy selection depends upon characteristic symptoms of the patient and not the disease symptoms. For e.g. A person is having an attack of asthma and he gets ameliorated on bending head backwards. Hence to differentiate the disease symptoms with the individual characteristic symptoms, good knowledge of disease is important. Pathological investigations are also important to know disease diagnosis and prognosis, to judge the improvement and differentiate the patient symptoms from the disease.
If the case demands so, the homeopath physician will asked the patient to undergo blood, urine or X-Ray/MRI. The tests decide the state of the patient’s condition, how the patient is going to respond to treatment, and what diet he/she should take while on the treatment.
Actually all Homoeopathic medicines are prepared by using scientific predefined methods of extracting the medicinal properties from source substances. There is no scope & need to adulterate the derived medicines with any other substances, as this would completely annihilate the curative properties of the drug. The prescription in Homeopathy is based on symptoms-similarity of the patient with those produced by the drug in its purest form, when tested on healthy human proovers.
If the patient has any doubts he should check the medicines from a standard drug laboratory before to take.
Yes, Homeopathic treatment during pregnancy is safe for the mother as well as the baby. It is always better to take homeopathic medicines but from a qualified homeopathic physician. The child will be much healthier, emotionally well balanced, intellectually sound & and physically stronger. Offspring will be saved from many hereditary diseases which are carried from generation to generation. In fact if homeopathy is given during pregnancy, the chances of delivery would be normal and easier.
Homeopathy is not recommended oftenly as the first line treatment for cancer as we don’t have good statistics available about its success rate in this area. However, homeopathy can be used to treat the physical, mental and emotional effects of conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. After conventional treatment has been completed then homeopathy can definitely be used to recover from the conventional treatment and to promote health and longevity. In many cases of prostate cancer when the urologist has recommended “watchful waiting”, homeopathic treatment can be used while the patient is continuously monitored. New onset bladder cancer is another disease in which homeopathy can be used. Typically, low grade bladder cancer are treated with pouring of chemo into the bladder. This amounts to a local treatment as these agents don’t enter the bloodstream. In this situation homeopathy can be added as an adjunctive treatment. Some early skin cancers can also be treated this way.
Obesity is a complex disorder involving an excessive amount of body fat. Ii isn’t just a cosmetic concern, rather increases your risk of diseases and health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Homoeopathy is very proficient in managing all the symptoms of Obesity (weight Loss) and furthermore plays a vital role in preventing relapse of the condition. Homoeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of physical, emotional, and genetic makeup that individualizes a person. This constitutional approach framing mind and body works at the root-level.
Yes, it does. Surgery is a separate branch of medicine. It has to be advised in conditions that are beyond the domain of medicine. But one can avoid surgery in certain cases as homeopathy can effectively treat many so-called surgical conditions like tonsillitis, piles, warts, kidney stones, etc.
