Homeopathy was discovered by German physician Dr.Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s Dr.Hahnemann was the first to coin the word – “Homoeopathy” devised from Greel, “Homoios” meaning similar, and “Pathos” means suffering. This refers to Homoeopathy’s pharmacological principle – “The Laws of Similar’s”.
Though the law of similar’s has been described previously by Hippocrates and was known to many civilizations like Mayan, Chinese, Greeks, Native Americans, and Asians, it was coined and codified as Homoeopathy by Dr.Hahnemann as a systematic medical science.
It seeks to treat the whole person, as when a person becomes ill, it is the whole that is sick – body, mind, and spirit. The body manifests symptoms of illness, but these are not the origin of the disease. The origin of disease lies in the imbalance of vital force; which homeopathic remedies act upon, and restore to balance.
So, the focus is not the discussed past as sickness, rather the totality of the symptoms.
Homeopathy can be used in first aid to safely treat common ailments and occurrences, such as sprains and bruises, minor burns, skin irritations and reactions (including poison ivy, diaper rash, and insect bites), teething pain, etc.
Acute health problems are those in which the symptoms will eventually go away on their own. They are temporary conditions, such as colds, flu, coughs, sprains, etc. A homeopathic remedy can be useful and attractive because it is safe, gentle and has no harmful side effects. Homeopathy can also be used to assist sensitive conditions such as pregnancy.
Constitutional homeopathy refers to the treatment of a person as a whole, including past and present symptoms. When accurately implemented, homeopathic constitutional care can elicit a profound healing response. It can be extremely effective in treating chronic and long-term health problems. Recurrent ear infections, for example, can be treated with a homeopathic remedy for a longer period of time to strengthen the body’s immune system and to prevent future occurrences.
The goal of homeopathic treatment is to encourage the body to return to a natural state of balance and health. Like the missing pieces of a puzzle, homeopathic medicines help “fill in” the gaps in the body to stimulate a person’s own healing potential and energies. When this occurs, the person will have access to the body’s natural strength and wisdom, so that more conventional medicines and chemical-based substances may not be needed.
Homeopathy is based on a “whole person” approach. In homeopathy, the remedy or treatment program is customized and individualized to the patient, with the intent of removing the underlying cause.
Conventional (allopathic) medicine usually relies on treating a patient’s physical symptoms. This treatment might also assume a person’s symptoms need to be controlled, suppressed, or eliminated.
Why use Homeopathy?
Homeopathy has become one of the most widely used systems of medicine in the world. This success is fueled by several factors:
But there is a catch…
Every silver lining has a cloud, and there is a barrier to the effective use of homeopathy:
