It works the way living organism work. The diseased organ or sensorium is so sensitive that it requires only small amount of potent medicinal agent to support and trigger it enough to act for its health. Only body can heal itself. Homeopathic medicines are facilitator of health. If large dose of medicinal agent is given to any diseased state, body suspends its own curative action and let that agent work on it. Soon on discontinuation of these large doses, body remain unable to combat disease on its own thus you find recurrence.
With homeopathy the general state of health and immunity increases.
For chronic illnesses homeopathy has nosodes which take away the tendencies of weaknesses leading to diseases.
Hi, Homeopathy is a highly individualised system of medicine where we are not just dealing with the local pathology but the whole physical and psychological syndrome. Medicines are not prepared by just diluting with carrier but through a specialised process called "potentization", in which the therapeutic powers of medicine get dynamised and enhanced. Its nanopharmacology that makes this pathy work. There have been many researches to support its efficacy and mode of action. Since further details won't be possible on this platform, request you to go through those, if interested.
Homoepathic medicines are prepared with a method called potentisation. IIT-Mumbai has proved how these medicines work.
The concept is of 'minimum dose' in homoeopathy.
Very less amount of medicine is required as it is very powerful.
So dont worry , the amount that is required is put. Not less not more at all !
