Homeopathic view of disease and health:
Disease = Dis + ease
Disease is Mother Nature's response to our indulgence and our unmitigated efforts to self-destruct through over-indulgence. Disease is Nature's way of slowing us down.
Health is a joyous journey back to harmony of Body +Mind + Spirit.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on the principle of 'Like cures Like.'
Homoeopathy is a mode of treatment which are well tested, proved and recommended for over 250 years.
Homeopathic remedies are 'very safe', they stimulate the body to heal itself and trigger improvements in the majority of cases.
How do Homeopathic medicines act?
They are based on the Laws of Nature. Homeopathic medicine awakens and stimulates the body’s own curative powers. Homoeopathy treats the person as a whole. Homoeopathy assists the body to heal itself, to overcome an illness which brings the patient to a higher level of health. Orthodox medicine suppresses the illness, bringing the patient to a lower level of health.
Homeopathic medicines have no toxic side-effect.
Homeopathic drugs act at level of mind as mind is the controller of the body. It ensures body mechanisms are carried out normally.
When Mind is deranged body harmony is lost. Disease first shows itself at the level of mind in the form of anxiety, fear, fatigue, disinterest, mood swings, irritability, anger, dullness, indifference, lack of interest or excitement etc.
If not attended on time, it progresses to physical derangements, which are first minor and then becomes major health problem.
Homeopathic medicines send signals to the brain to control its hyperactivity or hyposensitivity and aid immune system to revert the health of the person in most natural way. Homoeopathy strengthens our weakened immune system to respond in times of crisis to function normally, thus bringing healing in the most natural and safe manner. It targets the mind to behave normally so that it is able to restore functions of the body.
