Homeopathy: what it is and why is it beneficial

In the era of so many synthetic drugs, our bodies could use a break at times. This is where the benefits of homeopathy come into play. As far as this alternative medicine goes, its perspective is that the patient is considered as unique, requiring individual assessment and treatment. As an integrated entity, including the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and any other aspects of the total person. Individuals are seen as living systems that are self-healing, self-renewing, homeostatic and adaptive.

Skilled and extremely well informed homeopathic prescribing requires that the characteristics of the chosen medicine should be as similar as possible to the characteristics of the illness in the patient.

Homeopathy – the holistic view on health

Homeopathic medicines are aimed at improving the level of health by stimulating the self-regulatory mechanism and this implies reducing any disease process as well as the susceptibility to illness and disease. That means that it is not limited to certain diseases but is universally applicable to all kinds of diseases.

It can usually be safely be used as a first option in certain medical conditions, keeping more costly and potentially toxic treatment as a second option.

Even more importantly, homeopathic remedies represent a great option in cases where conventional treatments have failed, when they’re not well tolerated or are contraindicated or simply don’t exist fol solving a certain problem.

In many cases of chronic disease homeopathic treatment can achieve results which would be considered impossible with conventional treatment.

Homeopathy is one of the most efficient treatments

Surprisingly, homeopathy represents an effective alternative even to most antibiotics in infectious diseases, keeping you safe of any of the toxic side effects and bringing about rapid recovery.

Viral infections are also very efficiently treated with homeopathy.

There are many other conditions besides those listed where homeopathy is found to be effective.

Homeopathy usually comes with no side effects

Many childhood ailments could be very effectively and quickly treated with homeopathy without having to worry about any side effects whatsoever.

Unlike antibiotics and other such medicines, homeopathic pills do not hamper digestion, or lower the body’s resistance and even have long term negative effects. Neither do they cause any allergies nor cause any damage, even if taken over a long period. There is no toxicity, no addiction, no dependency, no withdrawal. Millions of people use it to help themselves, their families and their pets without any dangerous physical repercussions.

Homeopathy is also a cheap efficient treatment method

Although homeopathic consultations require more time, as homeopathic doctors need to obtain a large amount of information from their patients, making them comparable at first with conventional medicine, in the long run, homeopathy saves money. Under proper homeopathic treatment not only the person’s immediate complaints improve, but also his/her susceptibility to disease decreases as there is a general improvement in health and thus less need for medical consultations. So the cumulative costs are very low.
