Countries Where Homeopathy Thrive

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine based on the principle of “like cures like”, i.e. an illness can be treated using the same remedy that can cause similar symptoms. 
 
It is a very popular system that has a 200 year history and is used worldwide by millions of people. Homeopathy has a legal recognition in 42 countries and is recognised as part of alternative medicine in 28 others. This article looks at 5 countries that recognise homeopathy and have a large number of users who benefit from homeopathic treatment.  
 
 
United Kingdom
 
In Britain, homeopathic hospitals and out-patient clinics form part of the NHS (National Health Service). Homeopathy is recognised as a medical postgraduate course of study. It is used by the British royal family for over a century. There are five homeopathic hospitals in the UK. Patients at these hospital receive homeopathic treatment after having tried conventional medicines that don’t work.  
 
 
India
 
The development of homeopathy in India dates back to the 19th century during the British colonial era. It was first introduced by an Austrian doctor who treated the ruler of Punjab in 1839. The first homeopathic hospital was established in Kolkata in 1852. Homeopathy became popular in India thanks in part to the efforts of Bengali homeopaths to harmonise the principles of homeopathy with Aryuvedic philosophy. The central government of India now regulates the education and practice of homeopathy. Homeopathic research activities are carried out in different hospitals and laboratories throughout India. 
 
 
United States of America
 
The resurgence of homeopathy began in the 1970s, thanks to George Vithoulkas, a well-known Greek homeopath. Although the estimated annual use of homeopathy remains low, adult Americans spend a significant amount on homeopathic medicines and homeopathic consultation annually. 
 
 
France
 
In France, more than half of the population use homeopathy. A significant number of French doctors are trained in homeopathy and prescribe homeopathic remedies for their patients. 
 
 
Germany
 
In Germany, the birthplace of homeopathy, there are thousands of homeopathic practitioners. 
 
 
Australia
 
In Australia, the Australian Register of Homeopaths (AROH) is the independent non-government national registration board for hundreds of professional homeopaths. Homeopathy is recognised by major health insurance funds for rebates.  The Australian Homeopathic Association (AHA) is the largest association of professional homeopaths in Australia. 
 
 
 
The popularity of homeopathy is steadily growing in UK, US and Europe. Many years ago, the World Health Organisation had cited homeopathy as one of the systems of traditional medicine that should be integrated into the conventional health care system worldwide. This is already taking place in some parts of Pakistan, India and the Middle East.

Top 5 Reasons To Use Homeopathy

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. 
 
  1. 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. 
 
  1. 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. 
 
  1.  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. 
 
  1. 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. 
 
  1. 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.

Why homeopathy is NOT pseudo-science

Some sections of the scientific community proclaim that homeopathy is a pseudo-science, i.e. they argue that homeopathy’s clinical evidence is weak and that its basic principles violate modern scientific laws. Some go as far as to say that the 'Law of Similars’ is an ancient belief based on sorcery and magic. These assertions are far from the truth.
 
Can a system of medicine that is pseudo-science influence thousands of people so positively that that it becomes an observable fact by homeopaths and others? Can such a scientifically implausible system bring about a treatment so positively in patients that it can even be testified by any advanced medical test
 
Homeopathy worked more than two centuries ago and continues to work even today on a daily basis. Here is an example of case of a lady who turned to homeopathy because she is fed up with conventional medicine. She suffered from an intractable cold. She had tried everything including antihistamines, decongestions and antibiotics. Her doctors told her that there is nothing they could do. She came to see us. During a 1 hour consultation, we took a medical history and asked her a series of questions to find out the real cause of her problem. We prescribed a dose of homeopathic medicine. She became ill for a few days after taking the remedy. However, within three weeks, her chronic cold disappeared.
 
A couple of months later, she came back to our clinic and had this to say: "I feel so much better. "I have never felt this good in my entire life. I am sleeping well these days.” Is this peudo-science? Is this magic?
 
In the UK, there are homeopathic hospitals and out-patient clinics that are part of the national health system. Medical doctors there are trained in homeopathy. They see thousands of patients reporting back that their illnesses have improved after taking homeopathic remedies. This is observation and observation is scientific. Whether one fails to understand how it actually works is a secondary issue. What one observes is the fact, a reality.
 
Homeopathy also works on animals. A growing number of farmers in New Zealand turn to homeopathy as a form of treatment for their cows. They use homeopathic remedies to treat conditions such as mastitis and eczema. The results were wonderful and they were very pleased. They see these results repeated throughout their farm. Is this pseudo-science?
 
The answer is homeopathy is not a pseudo-science. A section of the medical profession are blinded by their own prejudices. Their attitude to homeopathy today is the same as it was a hundred years ago. However, there is a growing number of medical doctors turning to homeopathy in the UK, Europe and many countries. Their attitude is more positive and favourable. They are benefiting from this system.
