Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine originated in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of similia similibus curentur (“like cures like”), according to which a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure similar symptoms in sick people.
Homeopathy is a vitalist philosophy that interprets diseases and sickness as caused by disturbances in an immaterial vital force or life force. Disturbances are believed to manifest themselves first in mental symptoms, and eventually progress to physical disease if untreated.
Is Homeopathy Fake???
Many consider homeopathy as fake, because of it’s method of preparation, however I always suggest to disprove homeopathy’s efficacy rather then proving it. e.g., take any of the following medicines and use (at your own risk) 5 drops of them (single dose) just once. These medicines are guarenteed to work, no matter what’s your situation, and you will start feeling the changes in your mody within 15 minutes (30 minutes at most). The symptoms that will most probably occur are mentioned against each remedy
|Remedy||Strength / Potency||Symptoms|
|Aconite Nap||30||Sneezing, heat in body or chill, Laziness, dryness in mouth|
|Nat Mur||200||headache, runny nose, emotional unstability|
|Glonine||30||headache which will be worse on lying, palpitation, rash (like German Measles), higher blood pressure|
|Belladonna||30||headache which will be better on lying, palpitation, congestion, higher blood pressure, redness on mucous membranes|
Homeopathic Therapy is individualized, i.e., every individual is considered unique and theoratically requires a unique medicine for his problems. The domains which distinguishes a person from another are, personality, body type, mood, job conditions, marital status And most importantly the symptoms he is feeling.
Selection of Homeopathic Remedy
For any particular problem, selection of remedy is normally based on the golden guidance of Dr. James Tyler Kent, Which explains for important aspects of a problem.
|location||Where the problem is||pain in vertex of head or occiput,|
|sensation||How you are feeling it||pain is burning or stinging|
|modality||When it decreases/increases||worse in the morning, better after bath|
|concomitant||What other symptoms are present with headache||vision disturbed, sinus congestion|
Following this guide, homeopaths are able to find a perfect remedy for the problems faced by their patients, and they have to take each case individually.
