Homeopathy is a medical system which is popular for the treatment of chronic and recurring diseases of all types such as skin diseases, joint diseases, auto-immune diseases, etc. It is also popular for the treatment of acute diseases such as colds and flues, throat and lung infections, aches, pains, and injuries, diarrhea, dysentery, and more. It is not usually indicated for critical diseases such as severe infections such as malaria, pneumonia, tuberculosis, heart or kidney failures, accidents, etc.
Homeopathy, especially, is very effective for the treatment of chronic diseases of long standing. And, for those diseases which keep on re-appearing after every few days, months or years. Effectiveness of homeopathy in recurring diseases such as migraine, allergies, acne, autism, arthritis, asthma, rheumatism, psoriasis, etc. is a hallmark of homeopathy. All the diseases cannot be described here, obviously.
Well, even the conventional medicine is effective. Then, why homeopathy? The superiority of homeopathy is in a fact that the relief offered by it in the treatment of chronic diseases is quite lasting for many months or years. This lasting relief is achieved because homeopathy treats the root of the diseases. The approach in homeopathy is such that it addresses the patient’s physical, disease, emotional, emotional and genetic totality; and treats the disease traits rather than treating diseases superficially. Depending on the nature of the diseases and its cause, the cure achieved by homeopathy may last for a very long time, many times for over decades or more.
Homeopathy is essentially a safe system of medicine, free from any adverse effects if used correctly. The format of the medicine is such that the medicines are devoid of any toxic substance, hence absolutely harmless. Homeopathy is safe for newborn babies, pregnant women, and elderly patients as well as for those patients who have delicate health.
Some of the other benefits and advantages of homeopathy include its cost-effectiveness, easy to administer, child-friendliness and it can be used along with other forms of medications.
