Homeopathy is a complete medical science, which is based on the theory of “treating like with like”. Homeopathy is an alternative treatment practice, where nano-doses of an active ingredient are used to treat a disease. The active ingredients of homeopathy are based on plants, animals, or minerals such as activated charcoal, garlic, caffeine, dried herbs, vinegar, and stinging nettle plants. The philosophy behind homeopathy is to stimulate the body’s immune system with the help of active ingredients; so that the body itself can prevent and heal disease. One of the basic principles of homeopathy is the individualized treatment to all its patients and this individualized treatment depends on a patient’s specific problem, lifestyle, and body parameters. For this, if two patients with the same illness visit a homeopathic doctor; that doctor’s treatment has to be different for those two patients.
Homeopathy is such a type of medical science, which has some multipurpose advantages over the traditional practice to cure one’s both pathological and psychological disorder. Some advantages of homeopathy are given below:
First of all, homeopathy is very effective and popular for both chronic diseases like allergies, asthma, migraine, acne, psoriasis, depression which re-appear after a certain time, and acute diseases like aches, colds, and flues, pains and injuries, diarrhea, throat and lung infections, dysentery, etc. Secondly, homeopathy gives its patient a long-lasting relief. If someone visits a doctor, who practices traditional treatment he or she will give medicine for the particular disease while a homeopath will go to the root of the disease. He or she will try to find the cause behind the disease where it is big or small. For example, one is suffering from headaches which may be due to some other illnesses such as acidity or constipation or stress of that person.
A good homeopath will give medicine for that specific cause which will cure the cause. Once the cause is overcome, the headache problem of that patient will disappear forever. Thirdly, a homeopathic doctor takes the history of his or her patient. For this reason, In the process of taking the homeopathic case, a homeopath not only queries the patient’s disorder but also takes that patient’s general physical state, life situation, attributes, anxieties, dreams, stress, and illness in the past. Even family history is also a vital part here. All these factors help a homeopath to prescribe the exact remedy for a diseased person. Through this way, a faithful and respectful relationship develops between patient and physician.
Fourthly, homeopathic treatment is safe because ingredients from natural sources are used to make homeopathic medicine. As a result, it is free from all types of side effects if the medicine is used correctly because medicines are void of toxicity. Homeopathy is perfect for all stages of life including pregnant women, elderly patients, and children. Then, one of the best advantages of homeopathy is that homeopathic medicine can be taken along with other conventional medicines without any side effects. So that, if anyone wants to or has to take conventional medicine he or she may try homeopathic medicine without any hesitation.
After that, homeopathic treatment is less expensive compared to conventional treatment, because medicines are generic and non-patented. As non-patentable medicinal elements, which are low cost are used to produce homeopathic medicines is the secret of costless treatment of homeopathy. In general per day, one patient has to spend less than $1 on acute condition and chronic condition a few cents per day.
Then, homeopathy acts as an antidotal as it invigorates the immune system of the body. Therefore, the body itself produces the defense mechanism automatically to fight against diseases. As a result, the patient does not become sick frequently. Thereafter, homeopathy treatment can play a vital role during epidemics.
There are a lot of advantages to homeopathy. From ancient times to the modern period people always turn back to nature and try to get rid of diseases by using nature. In this case, as homeopathic medicines are produced from natural elements, the habit of taking homeopathy treatment is increasing vastly nowadays.
