Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the use of very small quantities of a substance that in massive doses produce effects similar to those of the condition being treated. For purposes of explanation, compare the concept to an immunization. Immunization is based upon injecting a small amount of a virus to boost the body’s immune system against it.
Homeopathy is much safer than immunizations and it varies from them in that
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is regulated by the FDA of the U.S. It has a National board that regulates the purity and quality of the homeopathic medicines produced.
Homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances of animal, plant and mineral origin. By a process of grinding, shaking and a series of dilutions, the raw material is changed into a homeopathic. The strength of the medicine is determined by the number of dilutions and succussions the raw material has undergone. The more times it is diluted and successed, the deeper action the medicine has on the energy of the person taking it.
Homeopathy treats the whole of the person, not just the symptoms of the illness. Classical homeopathy involves taking a complete case, and looking at the history of the person. Classical homeopathy supports healing the underlying cause of symptoms. Combination homeopathic remedies are often sold over the counter at lower potencies for care of acute conditions.
Homoeopathic remedies actually stimulate the body’s natural mechanisms for combating disease. Through homeopathy, a more natural balance is produced so health can be restored.
Unfamiliar to much of the scientific community, the use of extremely small doses has progressively been researched with each study marking significant steps in the use and effectiveness of small doses. Studies continue to compile evidence to the science of homeopathy. Homeopathy is a safe, effective means of treating both acute and chronic conditions.
