Homeopathy is a medical science introduced by a German scientist Dr Samuel Hahnemann, MD, in 1794 and it has been in practice all over Europe, the US, Australia, most parts of Asia, middle and far East, and India. It is the most practiced Alternative System of Medicine in the world today.
Homeopathy, more interestingly, works effectively especially for Chronic and recurring diseases, which are many. Just to name only a few, in random order, migraine, colds, allergies, auto-immune diseases, diseases of the joints, muscles and nerves, metabolic diseases, and more.
Homeopathy stands out distinct as compared to other modes of treatment by its fundamental principles directed towards treating diseases at the root level, by addressing the multiple causative factors such as genetic, immunological, metabolic, hormonal, emotional and the like. As a result, the diseases are treated in totality rather than in parts or as entities separate from the 'whole' of the individual patient. In that sense, homeopathic science believes in the 'holistic' approach.
Interestingly, the homeopathic medicines are also prepared in such a sophisticated way that rather than using harsh chemicals for treating humans, homeopathy uses attenuated and 'potentized' medicine substances which are in the form of nano-particles, which have been found to be effective in treating the diseases at much deeper level.
And, needless to say, the homeopathic medicines are absolutely safe and free from adverse effects. They are safe for even new-born babies as well as during pregnancy, and for elderly patients.
What will you miss, by not taking homeopathy?
Well, you will miss the benefits of homeopathy by not using it for which it is good. For example, homeopathy is very good for asthma in children, allergic colds, migraine. By not taking the homeopathic advantage for these diseases, obviously one would end up taking many chemical based medicines such as pain killers, anti-allergic medicines; which would help but superficially, with all side effects.
As an informed citizen, one has to know what homeopathy is good for, and must use if appropriately to get the best of this medical technology.
