The Scope of Homeopathy in Various Auto Immune Diseases

Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy, Homeopath
The environment where we live is packed with various harmful agents like bacteria, virus, allergy inducing particles (antigens), chemicals, dusts, pollutants etc. Every moment they are entering inside our body either through the air that we breathe or foods or drinks that we take or through skin by contact with. Inside our body there is a defence unity called body immune system that consist of various immune cells.Those immune cells of our immune system acts like well trained shoulders at the situation whenever any foreign particles like virus, bacteria or harmful substance enter inside our body they fight with them to kill and protect our body and cells from their attack. So every moment our immune cells are engaged in searching and fighting with the foreign substances to keep our body safe and healthy.BUT, sometimes our immune system get confuse to recognize between our own cell and outer foreign particles and start attacking our own cells thinking of foreign particle by which some health issues are developed. This is called auto immune disease. There are as many as 80 types of autoimmune diseases. Some common auto immune diseases areRheumatoid arthritis - inflammation of joints and surrounding tissuesleucoderma (vitiligo) - white patches on the skinPsoriasis - a skin condition that causes redness and irritation as well as thick, flaky,silver-white patchesSLE - affects skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organsCeliac sprue - a reaction to gluten (found in wheat, rye, and barley) that causes damage to the lining of the small intestineInflammatory bowel disease - a group of inflammatory diseases of the colon and small intestineType 1 diabetes - destruction of insulin producing cells in the pancreasSjögren’s syndrome - destroys the glands that produce tears and saliva Pernicious anemia- decrease in red blood cells caused by inability to absorb vitamin B-12WHY THE AUTO IMMUNE DISEASES OCCURIn medical science it does not have any specific cause why it occurs. But there certain factors that may responsible for developing auto immune diseases.Many clinical surveys say that the environmental factor plays a major role in developing various auto immune diseases. Now a days our environment has changed a lot. Everywhere there is pollution. The airs, water, foods all are polluted. 50 years ago there were not so many types of auto immune diseases. The atmosphere was not so polluted like present age. During those period peoples were taking healthy foods not so  much adulterated foods. The air was clean not so much polluted like present day. So as the science and technology develops side by side brings lots of negative things. The pollution level rises. The ozone level is gradually decreasing in the air. The water level is gradually decreasing. There has been a lot of changes in the atmosphere in compare to the past few decades years back. Not only in the external world the changes is marked inside us. Our stress level has increased a lot. Our though process has changed a lot. Our work style has changed a lot. Our mind setup has changes a lot. Our perception towards a subject has been changed a lot. The positiveness and positive attitude has been decreased a lot. Our anxiety, fear, stress, level has increased in compare to past age. The attitude of a person has changed. Anger, irritability, greedy, intolerance attitude has been increased. Physical activities have reduced a lot. In fact the whole things have been changed from external world to our internal world drastically in the course of time. But our body, our organs, our cells are same as millions year back, working the same function like before. The changing of environment, the changing of emotional level, the changing of psychological level putting tremendous negative impact on our body, in our cells specifically in our immune endocrine system. So our innocent simple reacting immune system has been disturbed and acting abnormally as a result so many auto immune diseases are creating and destroying the human society. This is the real threat now in the medical science to cure the auto immune disease as because there is no treatment has been discovered to cure a auto immune disease except managing the symptoms for temporarily basis.Scope of Homeopathy Treatment- In this regards homeopathy has a prospective role of treatment in the auto immune disease as because homeopathy treatment is not only based on the disease symptoms alone but the person’s psychological and emotional symptoms also taken care which are otherwise known as the root trigger factors for the development of the disease. Every individual has its own trigger factors either in his psychological level or emotional level or physical level or genetic level. Homeopathy treatment finds the thread of root cause of the triggers factors and treat accordingly, thus helps to bring back the equilibrium of the body’s immune system in a natural way to normal state thus may help to cure the auto immune diseases. For example a person of having psychological trauma in past life like death of any of his/her nearest or dearest one and that makes him/her to a depressive state and in the course of time develops irritability and after a few years develops psoriasis. So a homeopath takes the detail symptoms not only about the psoriasis symptoms of the person but his/her past life event of any psychological trauma and his/her present irritability nature and basing on all those symptoms the medicine is choose and if given can able to cure the disease. So there are not same set of medicines for a particular disease which can be repeated for every patient. But at the same time the general management therapy whatever is required for the patient should be kept continued along with homeopathy treatment.

Homeopathy In Detail

Dr. Satish Erra, Homeopath
Homeopathy is not a miracle medicineMany people believe that homeopathy is a miracle science, it can make magical cure in even most incurable diseases such as cancer, comatose stages, paralysis, etc. Actually, it is not. Homeopathy is simple a science based on certain laws (law of similars, comparable with that of vaccinations) with its own scope and limitations. There are rules, parameters and methods of application, which determine the scope of treatment.Homeopathy is very effective but please do not expect magic or miracles.Homeopathy is not a panacea:One of the myths about homeopathy is that it is a cure for all, a panacea. It is not. Homeopathy enjoys all the joys of scope of its application, as well as the limitations of the science. No medical science can be a panacea.           Homeopathy can cure early stages of Rheumatoid arthritis but not the deformities, which go with it, as an example.Homeopathy is not just the mind-based medicine:One of the hardest concepts about homeopathy is that homeopathy is based largely on the understanding of the mind. The homeopathic fraternally is also not fully saved of this mis-belief. The study of the mental attitudes, the emotions and the mind-set is one of the important aspects of patient-study in homeopathy. However, it is not the sole determining factor.Many homeopaths, especially in the western world, have a delusion that homeopathy is almost identical with mind-medicine. Homeopathy study encompasses, actually, the disease, the nature of pathology, the kind of immunological or hormonal changes, the physical components (perspiration, thermal preference, sleep, etc) and the mental sphere: all or most of them put together, depending on the case.Homeopathy is more than Psychosomatism:Many homeopaths tend to relate disease or pathology in patients to some emotional parameter, almost always as cause and effect phenomenon. For example, diabetes due to stress in relationship or arthritis due to grief due to death of a loved one, etc. Psychosomatism is profoundly comprehended and valued in homeopathy, however, not necessarily as a causal phenomenon, but more as a part of the totality. There is no need to forcibly connect major emotions as the cause for development of every disease in all patients.Homeopathy is not spiritual:Since homeopathy is based on potentised (incredibly minute) dose of the physical substance, which cannot be measured with the current scientific methods, many have theorized and connected homeopathy with spirituality. It seems interesting to read some correlation between the two, however, it may be detrimental for the growth of homeopathy if taken away from science and towards spirituality. Comparing ‘vital force’ with ‘sole’ and miasms with ‘Buddhism’ will take homeopathy away from scientific growth.Homeopathy is not-yet-fully-understood science, so, to some it might look like some form of spirituality.Homeopathy is not placebo therapy:The skeptics have always criticized homeopathy as placebo therapy, due to lack of adequate research as per modern medicine guidelines. Since the results using homeopathic medicines are fairly reproducible, measurable and documentable, I would strongly say that homeopathy is far beyond placebo therapy.Homeopathy is not faith healing:Next label from skeptics is that homeopathy is nothing but faith healing. Homeopathy has worked million times for those who did not believe in it. Also, babies, domestic and wild animals, respond to homeopathy, proving homeopathy to be more than placebo therapy.Cases of Hepatitis C, for example, where objective parameter such as drastic reduction in viral load after homeopathic medicines, is very hard to achieve with faith healing.I suggest, the skeptics should try out homeopathy.Homeopathy is not necessarily ‘single remedy’ magic:The homeopathic professionals have been taught to be dogmatic about the use of ‘single remedy’ at a time, for all patients, all the time. It is very hard to break this fixity and evolve from this rigid shell, which even the father of homeopathy, Dr Hahnemann, could not outgrow in his time. The homeopaths tend to be either emotional when it comes to talking about the use of more remedies in a give case or shy away from discussing about it. The profession has yet to enter into a scientific discussion about so-called poly-pharmacy (multiple medicines).No complex case be cured using a single remedy forever, barring only a few exceptions. I deal with very severe pathologies such as Ulcerative colitis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Nephrotic Syndrome, etc., where it is not possible to administer a single remedy and wait. Every delay could be detrimental and not justified.Homeopathy is not just ‘single dose’ therapy:‘Single remedy, single dose’ are the magic phrases found in homeopathic textbooks, no more relevant in today’s medical practice. I have practiced the said phrases very religiously for over a decade and half and have evolved from the dogmatism.Sticking to the idea of single remedy and single dose could even lead to criminal intransigence.Homeopathy is not dream-based treatment:Some teachings have led to create a cloud of delusion amongst some homeopaths, which believe that the practice of homeopathy can be based on the understanding of patient’s dreams. Study of dreams is one of the twenty odd parameters in homeopathy, one of the most unreliable, indeed. Its importance should not be over emphasized.Most treatments do not lead to suppression:Over importance to the theory of suppression of diseases in homeopathy is misleading, very often. Yes, use of immuno-suppressive medicines such as corticosteroids, etc., leads to suppression of immune system, eventually taking the disease to deeper levels. This is very well understood in homeopathic philosophy.However, extension of the concept of suppression, whereby some believe that anti-fever (paracetamol, Tylenol), pain killers, antibiotics, always lead to suppression and must always be avoided. This is not true, in my opinion. This calls for scientific debate.Homeopathy is not that slow:The proponents of homeopathy claim that homeopathy is not slow. Actually, this is partly true and partly not. Homeopathy is not slow in chronic diseases. It relatively slow in acute diseases and could be very slow in the treatment of critical diseases.Homeopathy is not very fast acting medicineHomeopathy is not very fast, either. Let me be honest. Homeopathy is neither very fast nor very slow. We need research   to make homeopathy faster, I would say.Homeopathy is not simply ‘constitutional medicine':Any contradiction to concept of the constitutional medicine is a potential trigger for third world war, amongst homeopaths at least. After twenty-five years of intense homeopathic practice, I believe that the ‘constitutional medicine’ is a hype created in the profession. It calls for a review and re-evaluation. It is a huge topic, cannot be discussed in length here.In brief, I would say, all cases may not find a constitutional medicine and can still be treated with success.Homeopathy is not suitable for all acute and critical diseases:One school of thought is that homeopathy can cure each a every acute and critical disease such as cerebral malaria, bacterial meningitis, acute renal failure, severe pneumonia, acute myocardial infection (heart attack), and the like.I strongly opine that it is not true. Homeopathy is a science having a limitation whereby severe acute and critical disease situations cannot be consistently treated with success. Please read the word ‘consistently’ with emphasis. Success with some cases, on some occasions, may not be enough. The results have to be comparable with the modern medicine, in order that we ethically claim success of homeopathy in severely acute and critical illnesses.Every disease is not curable, even if the remedy is right.Many people and some homeopaths believe that if symptoms of the patient match with some medicines, every disease becomes curable. In other words, if the medicine selection is perfect, the cure is certain, irrespective of the nature of the disease. This is not true. The curability of any disease depends on several factors such as:1. Nature of the disease. For example, hepatitis (inflammation of liver) may be curable, while cirrhosis (scarring) of liver is not curable.2. Extent of pathological change. For example, a fewer patches of Alopecia Areata (hair loss patches) are curable but, total hair loss (Alopecia totalis) is not curable.3. Reversibility of the disease process and outcome. Inflammatory arthritis can be helped but Osteoarthritis (bony overgrowth) cannot be reversed.4. Selection of the correct homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is not beyond the modern medical science:The well-evolved medical knowledge acquired by medical science is very much required for the evolution of homeopathy. Homeopathy does not claim to be beyond the modern medical science. In fact, it is high time to understand that homeopathy and medical science are not distinctly different as far as the ‘medicine’ is concerned. They are not contrary but complementary and collaborating, belonging to the same medical science.Homeopathy is not against the modern medicine:Some may believe that ‘modern medicine’ and homeopathy against each other, contrary, kind of enemies! I have always wondered, how such concepts have grown in the minds of medicos, homeopaths and lay-people. Homeopathy is just a science, a part of medical science.If we look at the evolution of engineering sciences, do we believe that computer engineering is contrary to the electronics, mechanical engineering opposing to electrical or civil engineering? Not really. They all are complementing each other. Why don’t we have maturity when it comes to medical sciences?Homeopathy is not against surgery:One of the myths among laypeople, modern medicos, as well as the surgeons is that homeopathy is against surgery. Surgery is a part of homeopathy. Surgery is a science and art by itself. Surgery is neither a property of modern medicines nor of homeopathy. It has to be understood that homeopathy is a therapeutic method of treating diseases in certain manner. Surgery is a method of treating diseases in a different manner, without medicines. Both are complementary to each other. Precisely, therefore, the homeopathic training in India trains every homeopath for basic surgery, at undergraduate level, as much as it trains a modern medico. Every qualified homeopath in India is a physician and a surgeon. This is not a case in the western world, though.While evaluating what homeopathy is all about, it would be equally important to understand what homeopathy is not. I hope this piece of article will stimulate many.

Homeo Truths: 5 Lesser Known Facts About Homeopathy

Dr. Balkrishna Singh, Dermatologist
Homeopathy is an evidence-based, empirical medicine that works by strengthening and stimulating the body's own curative powers to heal any distress within the body. Here we discuss 5 facts about homeopathy that reveal some of the most salient features of this natural healing science.FACT 1: HOMEOPATHY IS EVIDENCE BASED MEDICINEThere are over 600 published research studies, 180 controlled and 120 randomised trials conducted that demonstrate the effectiveness of homeopathy. Some of the study results proving the efficiency of homeopathic medicines on some major ailments have been discussed below:A study on homeopathic medicine Lycopodium 30C showed its benefits on high blood pressure, cardiovascular ailments, improving memory, reducing inflammation and providing over 60% protection against alcohol induced gastric ulcerHomeopathic remedy Rhustox 200 has been found to work effectively for relief from pain and stiffness in joints in rheumatoid arthritis.58 per cent patients suffering from major depression, social phobia or panic disorder responded favourably to individualistically prescribed homeopathic remedies.Evaluation by neurologists revealed significant reduction in the frequency of migraine attacks in patients undergoing homeopathy treatment.82 per cent patients treated by homeopathy enjoyed improvement in rheumatoid arthritis63 per cent patients on homeopathy had increased sleep time, reduced interruptions during sleep, and reduced nervousness without any side-effects.82% of people treated with Homeopathy experienced good relief from allergic symptoms as compared to 67% of people who experienced relief from conventional medicine.A study of 118 eczema patients published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine reported that homeopathy was as effective as standard conventional treatments in the short-term and more effective than them in the longer-term.Children attending a paediatric practice where conventional and homeopathic medicines were used, and who were previously diagnosed with ADHD, were given individualized homoeopathic medicines (increasing potencies of the most similar LM remedy). 75% responded to homoeopathyFurthermore, there are millions of case studies that demonstrate the positive benefits of homeopathy.FACT 2: HOMEOPATHY ACTS QUICKLYThe action of homeopathic medicine depends on various factors like sensitivity of the patient, the nature of illness, the pathology of the disease, and various other treatment measures taken before resorting to homeopathy.Since most people take recourse to homeopathy for chronic problems such as arthritis, ,allergic asthma or skin conditions, these appear to take a longer time to heal.In acute ailments like diarrhoea, acute cold, and cough, homeopathic remedies act as fast as conventional medicines, sometimes even faster.FACT 3: HOMEOPATHY WORKS WELL WITH CONVENTIONAL MEDICINEThere is clinical evidence to show that conventional medicine and homeopathy work well. One such research was conducted in Athens to see compatibility of homeopathy and conventional medicine in controlling diabetes.A group of patients of diabetes mellitus type-2 were treated with Daonil, a conventional medicine, and a placebo (Group-1) and Daonil and homeopathy (Group-2). Group-1 showed 47 per cent improvement; Group-2 showed a hugely impressive 97 per cent improvement. Homeopathic remedy Arnica works effectively pre & post surgery.Recognizing the effectiveness of homeopathy, the Government of India has decided to open a homeopathy department at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Bombay Hospital in South Mumbai, a large private hospital has an independent homeopathic division functioning. In Dubai, UAE, homeopaths are recognized as doctors of complementary and alternative medicine and are integrated in the healthcare system of the country.FACT 4: THERE ARE NO DIET RESTRICTIONS IN HOMEOPATHYThe only dietary restrictions that a homeopath may impose depends on the disease that the patient suffers from; for example, diabetics should avoid sweets and a high carbohydrate diet. Such dietary suggestions are commonly recommended in all forms of medicine to enhance healing.Since homeopathic medicines act through nerve endings, traditional homeopaths do not prefer the use or consumption of any substance with strong odors like toothpaste, garlic, and onions, as this could affect the action of homeopathic medicines.Modern homeopaths recommend having the medicines after rinsing the mouth half an hour before and after meals and also advocate placing the medicine below the tongue for best results.This apart there are hardly any diet restrictions in homeopathy.FACT 5: HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES ARE DERIVED FROM 3000 DIFFERENT SOURCESAlthough all homeopathic medicines look alike, they are not same. There are more than 4,000 homeopathic medicines in practice. The basic ingredients of homeopathic medicines come from 3000 different sources that are majorly derived from plants and minerals. Their active principles are extracted into various solvents. For better palatability, the liquid homeopathic medicine is poured into small globules, which are highly porous and absorptive.

Infertility & Impotence: Homeopathic Treatment Is Your Solution

Dr. Satish Erra, Homeopath
"INFERTILITY vs IMPOTENCE"Many believe that being impotent means they are infertile, but there is a difference.Among many closet issues plaguing men and women, erectile dysfunction or male impotence and sexual dysfunction or female impotence tops the chart. Many believe that being impotent means they are infertile. Though these terms are synonymously used, impotence and infertility mean different things. Erectile dysfunction in men refers to the persistent inability to achieve and maintain an erection adequate for satisfactory sexual activity. Females experience sexual dysfunction, which can be defined as the inability to attain or maintain arousal during sexual activity.Infertility refers to the inability to achieve a successful pregnancy. While impotence is not a cause for infertility, it can make conception extremely difficult. Nearly 40 per cent of women experience decreased sexual arousal, diminished vaginal lubrication, pain and discomfort while intercourse and difficulty in achieving orgasm. These are classic symptoms of sexual dysfunction, which dramatically affects fertility too.There are two major reasons for women being averse to sex: Dyspareunia or extreme pain and discomfort in the genital area and vaginismus or an involuntary spasm of muscles around the vagina that causes it to close. Sexual impotence also has psychological roots with anxiety, depression and stress playing a role. Sexual arousal depends on an intricate interplay of psychological, neural, vascular, and endocrine factors. Infertility, on the other hand, could have many reasons. Increased stress due to changing lifestyles in one major cause. Constant stress releases a cocktail of hormones that play havoc with many systems. Stress has been shown to increase the levels of prolactin, a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. This can hamper ovulation in females and sperm production in males. Hormonal imbalance can also lead to erectile dysfunction. The inability to achieve pregnancy could be due to below par sperm production or due to poor sperm motility.Another negative effect of stress is poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in females, which is a leading cause of infertility. In the urban setting, PCOS is a common disorder characterized by abnormal cysts in the ovaries. Stress releases hormones like adrenaline, which aggravates symptoms of PCOS. If not detected and treated, PCOS leads to infertility, heart disease, kidney dysfunction, and many other ailments.Both impotence and infertility have a negative impact on intimate relationships, quality of life and self esteem. To identify the underlying issues leading to erectile dysfunction in men, initial diagnostic tests include serum glucose test, lipid panel, thyroid stimulating hormone test, and morning total testosterone levels. Female sexual dysfunction is less understood as many women refuse to admit to the problem. There are many ways to treat impotence. The first line of therapy consists of lifestyle changes. Sometimes the cause may be a prescription drug, so a new medication may be necessary. Infertility, on the other hand, could have hormonal roots or there could be structural deformations leading to lower sperm count or poor sperm motility.Fertility treatments involve the use of natural homeopathic medications. With the advent of new techniques that help in easy conception, SPIRITUAL HOMEOPATHY experts insist on a stress-free and healthy lifestyle to prevent fertility-related problems

Homeopathy Is A Gentle Way To Treat Obesity

Dr. Ganesh Pansare, Homeopath
Your doctor will measure your weight and height in order to calculate your BMI. Your BMI is an estimate of your body fat and is used as a primary screening tool for obesity. Your provider may also take a measurement of your waist circumference. These combined measurements will help estimate how much body fat you have and determine your risk of diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.Preventing Morbid ObesityPeople who are morbidly obese should avoid “fad” diets and focus instead on changing eating behaviors. Recommendations include:· adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet· eating smaller meals· count calories· avoid saturated fats, trans fats, and refined sugarsPhysical activity is good for overall health and is especially important if you’re trying to lose weight. To begin losing weight, you will need to do moderate to vigorous exercise for more than three hours per week. Vigorous activity raises your heart rate significantly. Examples include:· running or jogging· swimming· jumping ropeModerate exercises include brisk walking or biking, and can also include everyday activities .Homoeopathic treatmentHomeopathy has been successfully employed as a mode of treatment for weight loss, for many years now in the Europe and South Asia. But one should understand that it is no miracle cure. The homeopathic treatment for losing weight is constitutional and it requires a detailed case history of the patient and proper evaluation for selecting a suitable constitutional remedy.How is the approach of homeopathy towards the weight loss process different?Unlike the other conventional medications that are prescribed just by diagnosing the symptoms, homeopathy needs a detailed case history and also family history of obesity to ascertain if one has a predisposition to obesity. Fat stores are regulated over long periods of time by complex systems that involve input and feedback from fat tissues, the brain and endocrine glands like the pancreas and the thyroid,Doctor might also ask one about the eating habits, lifestyle habits and other underlying health conditions before prescribing a remedy. The tendencies to overeat and be sedentary, the diminished ability to use dietary fat as fuel and a high, easily stimulated capacity to store body fat are all genetically influenced. The variation in how individuals respond to the food-rich environment and the differences in acquiring obesity - related conditions are also genetically determined.How does homeopathy work for weight loss?Homeopathic remedies are made from sources like plant extracts, herbs and other natural substances that don’t have any side effect on the body unlike the conventional weight loss pills or treatments. Homeopathy works on a simple principle that the symptoms caused by a substance in its undiluted form can be reversed by the same substance in its diluted form. Homeopathy attempts to correct digestive disorders, improve metabolism and help in easy elimination – the three main prerequisites for reducing weight. The medicines are prescribed after studying the pattern of symptoms as they appear in the patient.Unlike conventional medications that restrict the absorption of nutrients or induce a feeling of fullness, homeopathy drugs treat the symptoms that cause weight gain. But remember homeopathy isn’t a magic cure. One needs proper diet and exercise regimen in place along with the medications to achieve desired weight loss goal, the homeopathic remedies are tailor made for one’s needs. What works for one isn’t going to work on the other as the basic reason and trigger for the condition of two different individuals would differ.Some of the common homeopathic drugs are as follows:    Calcarea CarbonicaNatrum MurLycopodiumNux Vomica Antimonium Crudum

Truth About Homoeopathy

Dr. Sameer Kumar Singh, Homeopath
Homeopathy: A near complete system of medicine:Homeopathy is not limited to certain diseases but is universally applicable to all kinds of diseases. It is time, when people must be made fully aware of the benefits and the scope of homeopathy in various day-to-day diseases. Homeopathy should be more and more made available to the benefit of ailing persons, as it can positively help 90% of the diseases we have today.Some of the common comments made by the conventional doctors:Homeopathy does not workIt is very easy for anyone to comment negatively about any science. However, it can be considered valid only if the opinion comes either from professional training or personal experience. Please ask your doctor, if the opinion is based on his or her personal training. Ask, if the doctor has evaluated clinical studies published in homeopathic medical world. It is helpful to find out if such an opinion is a arising out serious experience or wishful assumption.Homeopathy is a placebo therapyWell, please find out from your doctors, if or not, his is informed about a number of clinical trials and animal studies suggesting that homeopathy is not a placebo therapy, but it has proven efficacy in controlled studies.Homeopathy is slow actingThis opinion is partly correct. Homeopathy is relatively slow as compared to antibiotics, pain killers, cortisone, bronchodilators, etc.However, in chronic cases, what we are looking at long lasting recovery rather than just fast and short term relief. In that context, slower pace of homeopathy is not big limitation. In most cases, we (patients and doctors) are more interested in the treatment that is more deep acting and long lasing rather than just fast but short acting, except in critical care.There is no research done in homeopathyIt is true, that relatively there is less research in homeopathy, compared to the mainstream medicine. There is ongoing research in homeopathy.Homeopathy is very old system of medicine and it is not relevant todayWell, those who make such a comment may be suggested to make some research into the history of medicine. Homeopathy is amongst the newest of medical systems. It is 210 years old, introduced by a German scientist Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755 to 1843), as compared to the conventional medicine, which date backs to Hippocrates (460 BC to 370 BC). Homeopathy is a young science. And, it has been evolving.Homeopathy works only for functional and emotional diseaseExperience of thousands of practitioners and millions of patients confirm that homeopathy also works in the cases of physical pathology such as intestinal ulcers, fissures, chronic inflammation, infections, skin lesions, arthritis, etc. There are tons of documented cases proving this fact.Homeopathy is not recognized by FDA, WHO, Government, etc.The US FDA and similar agencies in most developed countries have approval for homeopathic medicines. The WHO has approved on homeopathy and it has been accepted as an alternative system of medicine.Most of the developed courtiers have recognized homeopathic medical college including United States, UK, Germany, India, Australia and other 150 countries.Many scientists, medical doctors, prime ministers and presidents of many countries, government officials, authors, film stars, teachers, etc. prefer to opt for homeopathy.Unfortunately, many patients are deprived of the benefits of homeopathy due to their doctor’s ignorance.Let us see what the doctors WOULD NOT say about homeopathy:Homeopathy is good for chronic diseasesIt is likely that your doctor would not tell you that homeopathic treatment is very good for chronic diseases, in particular. This suggestion may not come due to ignorance, but from lack of experience or fixed ideas.Conventional treatment is good for acute disease while homeopathy is more effective for chronic diseases. The conventional doctors are not likely to suggest it due to the reasons stated in the previous comment as above. For a particular range of diseases, homeopathy is strongly suggested. A wide range of chronic diseases such as migraine, psoriasis, arthritis, asthma, allergies, ulcerative colitis, warts, urticaria, etc. homeopathy is distinctly effective. But, it is possible that your doctor would not say it.I take homeopathy treatment for myself and for my familyMany conventional doctors opt for homeopathic treatment for themselves and for their own family members. Only few would admit.

What Is Homoeopathy and What It Can Do for You?

Dr. Annie Singh
Homoeopathy is scientific, logical, safe, quick and extremely effective method of healing. It offers long lasting cure, treating the disease from its roots, for most of the ailments. Homoeopathy is the most rational science with respect to its concepts of health, disease and cure.Homoeopathy does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals the patient from within. Undoubtedly, homoeopathy is the medicine of future.Homoeopathic medicines are safe and very effective:   Homeopathic medicine acts as a stimulant to the curative powers of the body (immune systems) which become faulty & depressed /disease conditions. Homoeopathy is a system of medicine that uses natural substances. These substances have been transformed by potentization into invaluable medicines for acute as well as chronic problems.Homoeopathy treats MAN IN DISEASE NOT DISEASE IN MAN: The conventional treatments insists on diagnosing an illness or disease and accordingly try and treat symptoms like bringing down blood pressure or blood sugar or cholesterol, or increase what is deficient and decrease the levels of whatever is in excess. And thus, totally neglecting the root cause of the illnesss, which may be at the genetic level. Whereas in Homoeopathy  importance has to be paid to Genetic Traits of a patient thus incorporating Mental as well as Physical make-up of the patient that make up a man and are directly or indirectly responsible for the patients illness.Homoeopathy improves general resistance while improving current condition.The use of Homoeopathy often avoids surgery.Homoeopathic medicines are tested and proved on humans, not on animalsHomoeopathy is friendly to infants, children,, young and oldUnlike Antibiotics, Homoeopathic remedies do not disturb digestive system nor do they lower the immune system(Body's resistance)Homoepathic remedies are not addictive-once relief is felt, patient should stop taking them.Homoeopathic remedies work on mind and body and also relieve tensions, worries and anxiety.Homoeopathy improves harmony in one's body, personal life and professional growth.
