Discovered by German M.D. physician, Dr Samuel Hahnemann, Homoeopathy has existed for more than 250 years, and yet, is the youngest system of Medicine!
Homoeopathy can be summarized in just 3 S’s:
- Sound principled
- Side-effect free
The rationale behind Homeopathy is not just to treat the symptoms or pathology. It is to go for the prime base- the Immune System and enhance it to the level of positive response. All this is achieved in the gentlest way possible, taking the individual, not only out of disease but on to the path of health.
Inner Power and Harmony
Homeopathy is a Medical science based on the well-proven premise that the body has its own power to heal. A healthy body is like a well-oiled machine where every part and organ of the body works in harmony.
Whenever there is some significant mental stress or shock and/or some physical affliction such as an infection or injury, this disrupts the harmony of the body and the instability and imbalance are expressed in the form of symptoms.
The Doctor Within
We have a Doctor within ourselves! We all know that in case of indispositions or minute affections, these are very well taken care of by our body. For e.g. when we get a small cut on our finger, it bleeds, later it stops bleeding! The blood clots and we don't need any medical help for this small wound to heal.
On the other hand, if the wound is very big, it needs an external aid like some stitches or medications that help our body to heal. In the same way, a broken bone when set right heals on its own without any medication. We have a doctor within ourselves which guides and heals our body during illness. In this context, we are aware of the fighting force of white blood corpuscles that guard our body against external afflictions.
Need of Extra Healing Power
When the disrupting cause is stronger, the relative disturbance caused to the human system is significant and then the body alone cannot manage to recover on its own and sickness surfaces in the form of sign and symptoms. Here, our body needs an external force which will aid the body to recover and this is where Homeopathy steps in. It strengthens the immune system (that guards our body) and helps the system to fight back and recover faster.
Homeopathy is the only medical science that works on the principle that our body constantly makes effort to maintain and re-establish the internal stability. So when the body is in a state of sickness, Homeopathic medicines gently provide stimulation to the immune system of our body and help to fight the disease out of our body.
Going to the Root of the Trouble
Homeopathy treats you as an individual and not just your diseased parts independently. Unlike other medical sciences, homoeopathy does not treat on the name of the disease but it looks for the cause, the root of the disease. When the cause is removed, the disease automatically goes away.
Gentle Treatment with Natural Medicines
All Homeopathic medicines are prepared largely from naturally occurring substances – plant kingdom, mineral kingdom and animal kingdom. Each medicine is thoroughly proved on healthy human beings to get the most accurate remedy picture.More than 4000 homoeopathic medicines are currently in use and new homoeopathic medicines are regularly researched and proved. Homeopathic medicines do not have any side effects, the reason being that the medicine is prescribed in a minimum dose which is enough to bring about relief.
