Homeopathy Explained Easily
What is homeopathy? Homeopathy is a way of treating illness by administering very small diluted doses of preparations that actually produce the signs and symptoms of the disease. It is actually a relatively little-known field that is not yet known to many people, and there are as yet not a lot of studies that attest to its effectiveness. Some of the studies and writeups about homeopathy are rather vague, and difficult for common people to understand. A lot of people are therefore still skeptical as to whether homeopathy really works.
Herbal medicine has been used long before any traditional medicine was developed and saved countless lives. Does it work? I believe so, but those who do not use it, maybe skeptical certainly.
Basically, homeopathy can explained like this. It uses the theory, ‘like treats like.’ For example, if you are complaining about a certain ailment, say dizziness, a homeopath (doctor of homeopathy) would give you something that will make you dizzy. It may be difficult to figure out how that would cure you, but as you feel dizzy, eventually your body will get used to the feeling and adjust, so in the end, you will not feel the dizziness anymore. Another example is an allergy to bees. The natural medicine is the same as the bee sting venom.
Homeopathy is based on the reasoning that your body possesses its own healing powers, and by making the symptoms of an illness more pronounced, then the natural process of healing that is inherent in your system is hastened. So you get well without having to undergo artificial clinical procedures like surgery, drug treatment or other interventions.
Ailments and Homeopathic Treatments
Homeopathic treatments use mostly natural or organic substances concocted from plants rather than chemically formulated drugs. However, there are also preparations made from substances extracted from animals and minerals. The preparations come in various forms, such as pills, liquid solutions, as well as liniments or ointments for external application. People who subscribe to homeopathy contend that these cures are safer and more efficacious than chemical drugs which can produce undesirable effects on the body.
Claims for homeopathic treatment cover a wide range of diseases and health problems, including mild pains, skin disorders, allergic reactions and other physiological ailments, and even psychological problems. Homeopathy is actually a way of healing that makes use of the intrinsic physical and mental capabilities of a person. To be a practitioner of homeopathy, one does not have to be a doctor in the traditional sense, nor does one have to have obtained some medical degree.
One has to go through a special course on homeopathy in order to be able to practice it correctly. There is as yet no formal system or body for accrediting homeopathy practice, but it takes a lot of skill and experience to be recognized as a homeopathy practitioner.
