Remedies and Medications
Are homeopathic remedies safe?
Homeopathic remedies are a unique, potentised energy medicine, drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds. They work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body, and are very safe, even for the elderly, pregnant and sensitive patients. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity.
Can I continue my medications when I start homeopathic treatment? Homeopathic remedies do not interfere with other medications. However, after the well chosen remedy begins working, most people find that they can decrease their medications and in many cases eliminate them. For medicines which are necessary for your health, this should be done with your doctor’s support.
What will interfere with homeopathic treatment?
Drugs that strongly suppress the natural functions of the body will interfere with remedies that are meant to restore those functions. Thus steroids and other immunosuppressants will interfere. Still, homeopathy can be used with these drugs. They will slow down your body’s healing powers, so the homeopathic remedy will not be as effective, but it still will work.
Any strong stimulus that you are not accustomed to, can antidote a working remedy. Thus, Camphor, some dental treatments, coffee (both decaf and regular coffee) may antidote or interferer. Strong shocks, either emotional or physical can stop a remedy from working. So, surgeries, car accidents and death of a loved one can be important factors in stopping the effect of treatment.
Will I need to change my diet?
Only if you normally eat a substance that is toxic or irritating to your system would you need to change you diet.
Can diabetics use homeopathic sugar pills?
Yes. The amount of sugar used in homeopathy is insignificant. One tiny pill is about the size of three grains of sugar. It is placed in a half bottle of water and only a drop at a time of that is taken. So, the amount of sugar used is insignificant.
Are homeopaths always against vaccination?
This is a controversial subject among homeopaths. I believe that if there is no evidence of immune system damage, vaccinations may not cause obvious harm, but to avoid possible damage to the immune system, vaccinations should be kept to a minimum. For example the hypersensitivity of allergies suggests immune system damage. Because vaccinations cause an artificial increase of antibodies, persons who are already hypersensitive are also vulnerable to further damage.
Problems Affected by Homeopathic Treatment
Is homeopathy only for chronic problems?
No. homeopathy can treat most household emergencies: normal children’s sicknesses, after surgery or birth self care, or light burns and wounds. Standard medical practice is advantageous in cases where an organ or life is endangered. By knowing homeopathic emergency treatment, you can avoid most strong emergency medicinns.
Can homeopathic remedies be given to newborns, infants, lactating or pregnant women?
Yes. The bodies of lactating or pregnant women are experiencing rapid hormonal changes, which causes them to be more easily adversely affected by normal medicines. For them, use of natural homeopathic remedies is a great advantage.
When is homeopathy not effective?
Some factors supporting a problem cannot be treated by homeopathy. For example, household toxins or stress from a job will continue to cause illness so although the appropriate homeopathic remedy may temporarily improve the patient’s condition, the problem will reoccur.
If you continue the habits that caused your problems, homeopathy cannot directly cure your problem. However, it may affect your self-awareness which will indirectly help you to change your habits.
Homeopathy is most effective when problems have not caused irreversible damage to the body tissues. For example, asthma is an inflammation of the lungs. If the inflammation has not irreversibly damaged the lungs, homeopathy can be used to calm the inflammation and to restore a general higher level of health. If, however, inflammation has progressed to emphysema, meaning the cells lining the lungs have been destroyed, homeopathy can help the patient to feel better, but it will not restore dead cells.
Diseases that have destroyed vital organ tissues may be difficult to recover from with homeopathy, but some homeopaths focus on these diseases. As this time, I am avoiding them because they require the cooperation of a doctor.
What is the best remedy for diarrhea, flu, depression or headaches?
If these conditions are not chronic, there are easy to distinguish remedies that more commonly work when certain distinct symptoms arise. However, often if your symptoms repeat themselves, they are chronic. For chronic problems, the remedy must suit the entire constitution of the patient. So, in for chronic conditions, there is no simple answer to this question. more….
Will I have to take a remedy that helped me for the rest of my life?
No. After you have met your healing goals, you will stop taking your remedy. You should store your remedies in a dry dark place because they do not spoil and when you have a crisis, sometimes the remedy that affected you deeply in the past will help you again. Also, if you learn just a little about how to look up symptoms of problems in an emergency homeopathy handbook or on the web, if you have a remedy box or at natural health stores, you can find the remedy that you need. So, learn as much as you can from your homeopath and master the most basic tools.
How is homeopathy used in other countries?
The use of homeopathy over two centuries and throughout the world attests to its importance. It is covered by national health insurance in countries such as France and Mexico. It is often an elite medicine because each patient is treated individually. That is, we think about each patient as an individual which saves much time and money, but at first, treatment may cost more than automatic medical procedures. As an example of the elite nature of homeopathy, the primary physician of the Queen of England and her family is a homeopathic doctor. If you use the keywords “famous people and homeopathy”, you will find many websites listing and describing those famous people who use homeopathy. It is widely used in Europe and South America. In India, homeopathic doctors receive the same basic education as any other medical doctors and then they specialize in homeopathy.
In countries where public health is not completely controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, homeopaths are nationally certified and despite the truth that the elites use it, actually it is much cheaper than modern medicine to it is an important branch of public health. Interestedly, Canada has recently enacted laws to nationally certify homeopaths. In 2016, I was observing in a homeopathic clinic in India and found that although homeopathy is government sponsored, it is strongly oppressed by the pharmaceutical industries. In the most impoverished Indian villages, patients bring in bags of drugs that that they are or have taken. So, the truth is not as simple as I would hope. Nevertheless, there are many top level classical homeopaths in India, and it can be a Mecca for homeopathic students.
How long has Homeopathy been used?
Homeopathy has been used in the Europe for over two hundred years, but has an honorable tradition dating back to ancient Greece. It was Samuel Hahnemann was brilliant German doctor working in 1796. He developed the scientific and philosophical foundations of this gentler way of healing. These scientific principles form the basis of successful homeopathic practice today.
