Homeopathy is a unique system of medicine that is very different from allopathic (conventional) medicine. Homeopathy strengthens the body's own defense mechanisms, stimulating it to initiate the healing process. Homeopathic medicines are made from plants, minerals, and other natural resources to treat individuals as a whole, including physical, mental, and emotional symptoms.
Homeopathy works on the system rather than just the symptom.
Homeopathy treatments locate the root of your health issues and reverse them naturally. This medicine can treat many chronic and acute diseases, rather than managing or suppressing them.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, created this alternative medicine called "homeopathy" in 1796, because he was not satisfied with the medicine he had been taught to practice. He claimed that conventional medicine sometimes does more harm than good to the patient.
Homeopathy is derived from its Greek name "homeo" meaning similar and "patheos" meaning suffering. Hahnemann developed the cornerstone healing principle "that which can produce a set of symptoms in a healthy individual, can treat a sick individual who is manifesting a similar set of symptoms." This is known as the "like cures like" principle, which became the foundation for his approach to medicine.
For example, if the symptoms of your allergies are similar to what you experience when cutting a raw onion (eyes might tear up, burn, or nose runs), then a very minute dose of homeopathic remedy Allium cepa (made from onion) may help you reverse these symptoms.
Only the minimal dose should be taken to initiate the body's natural healing process. Minimum doses do not produce harmful side effects that are often caused by conventional medicines.
Homeopathy's mission is to treat the whole person, not individual symptoms. People using homeopathic medicine often notice a positive change in their emotional state as well as their physical health by finding the medicine that matches that person as a whole.
The good news is you don't have to be a physician or an expert in homeopathy to get started. You simply must carefully observe.
Maybe you've tried antibiotics, steroids, or over-the-counter creams to reverse symptoms for an acute problem, because that's what the doctor ordered. We've been there, too, and we take full responsibility for failing to research the side effects of those medications before dumping them into our children's mouths or lathering it
onto their skin. But, then came the upset stomach, diarrhea, allergies,
eczema, bronchitis, and the list goes on.
There are many wonderful doctors out there, and we are thankful for the physicians who truly listen and get to know their patients while being willing to work with them using natural medicines that are safe, gentle and don't cause side effects.
