Alternative Medicine: Homeopathic Therapy and Treatment

“By similar things a disease is produced and through the application of the like, is cured.” – Hippocrates (460-377 BC)

Homeopathy is an alternative medicine treatment in which the homeopathic practitioner treats each person as a unique individual.  He or she aims to stimulate the patient’s own healing ability.  A homeopathic practitioner selects the most appropriate medicine based on the individual’s specific symptoms and personal level of health.

Homeopathic medicine is the second largest practiced system of medicine around the world.  More people are finding that it can be a highly effective way of treating the health issues that arise in life, whether they are mental, emotional, or physical.

Homeopathic therapy was conceived in 1796 by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann.

Homeopathy is a natural, gentle, and effective system of alternative medicine that works on two principles:

  • “Like cures like”.
    Like cures like is the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people.  For example, an onion makes your eyes water.  That is why it is used in homeopathic remedies for allergies and some colds.

  • “Law of minimum dose”.
    The law of minimum dose is the notion that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness.  Many homeopathic products are so diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine products are often made as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue. They may also be in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets.  It is safe, non-toxic and non-addictive.  It can be used by everyone, from new-born to the elderly, including women during pregnancy.

Around 1810 in Germany, Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, discovered that the diseased organism healed rapidly with the administration of small, energized doses. There were no side effects of the drugs used.

Alternative medicine

Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine, the basic principle of homeopathy is “the similar heals with the similar”, all the substances that are used as a remedy in homeopathic medicine have been experienced in healthy people, producing symptoms like those cured in sick people, with the advantage that it does not generate undesirable side effects.

For example, peeling an onion can cause itching, burning, watery eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose. If the homeopathic remedy made from onion were given to an allergy sufferer, it would cure those same symptoms.

Homeopathic therapy principle

Another principle of homeopathy is potentisation. The more diluted an ingredient is, the more powerful it becomes. The idea is that diluting and shaking an ingredient activates the ingredient’s healing powers, thus enhancing its effect.

For a homeopathic practitioner there are no diseases, but only ill people. The homeopathic treatment is not for one disease or another, but for each person. Homeopathy assumes that people are all different, which is true, and people’s lifestyle affect their health, and as such each treatment will be different.

A homeopathic practitioner works physically, mentally, and emotionally in a gentle, gradual, and thorough way to restore balance to the individual. He or she does not simply suppress symptoms.
