Homeopathy is widely practiced around the world with an estimated 500 million people having received homeopathic treatment. The British Royal family and other high profile personalities are long-term users. It is steadily increasing in popularity in USA. The central government of India regulates over 100 homeopathic education colleges and over 100 000 homeopaths.
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that aims to promote general health, by reinforcing the body's own natural healing capacity. It uses natural substances, suitably diluted, to provoke a self-healing to remove an illness. Since homeopathic remedies are so dilute, they do not produce any unwanted side effects.
Why is Homeopathy so popular? We will discuss some of the top reasons people turn to homeopathy.
- Homeopathic medicines enhance the healing system of the body
Homeopathy works by sending a message to the body to provoke a natural immune response, which then builds a defense mechanism to remove the danger or illness. It works with the person’s defence system instead of fighting against it. Overtime, the body will be trained well enough to cope with the same disease. There is no dependency on using high doses of dangerous drugs.
- Homeopathic remedies are safer since they don't produce untoward side effects
As mentioned briefly above in the introduction, homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances that are so extremely dilute. This means that there is no trace of the original substance left. As a result, homeopathic remedies cannot produce any unwanted side effects. On the other hand, conventional drugs treat an ailment, but in doing so create side effects in the form of another disease.
- Homeopathy is less expensive
In the long-run, homeopathy is much more cost effective. Homeopathic remedies are prepared using sucrose globules or distilled water, both of which are very inexpensive to produce. The majority of homeopathic consultation fees are also reasonably priced. The aim of homeopathic treatment is to build the capacity for the body to heal itself naturally and to reduce the need for constantly buying powerful expensive drugs.
- Homeopaths spend more time with patients
On average, a homeopathic consultation can take up to two hours long. A homeopathic consultation is highly individualised. Homeopaths prescribe homeopathic remedies after assessing the patient’s overall symptoms and constitutional type. A detailed consultation is very important so that the homeopath can prescribe the correct constitutional remedy that will bring about a long-lasting treatment.
- Homeopathy deals with the real cause of the disease
Homeopathy takes the view that a person reacts differently to a disease. How the person reacts to that disease, both physically and mentally, determines the type of constitutional unique remedy that he or she needs. For example, there are different causes of migraine. Some migraines are aggravated by hot weather and others are aggravated by cold weather. There are over a hundred causes for migraines. Each type of migraine requires a unique homeopathic medicine. This is the most effective and real approach to dealing with diseases.
