Reasons why you choose homeopathic treatment rather than conventional treatment
Homeopathy may be the most controversial but also the most popular alternative medicine. While some argue against it, others swear by its power and effectiveness. Today, we will look into how homeopathy works and its advantages over conventional medicines. So, let’s get started.
How does homeopathy work and what can modern medicine learn from it?
The first principle of homeopathy is “like cures like.” Remedies use ingredients that cause symptoms you want to cure. Potentization is the second principle. The idea is that stirring and diluting the ingredients activates their healing powers and enhances their impact. To do this, the ingredient is dissolved in alcohol or distilled water.
Homeopaths take one part of the solution and mix it with nine parts of water, diluting it down to 1/10thof its original concentration, and shaking it. Now, this process is repeated. Until a desired potency is achieved, keep on doing it. The finished remedy is then taken orally or sometimes, it’s applied as little sugar pellets that are sold as globuli.
So, why homeopathy?
Withhomeopathic treatment, you’ll be able to attain the below benefits.
- Safe and no side-effects
Unlike conventional treatment that might come with a host of side-effects, homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances and hence, they do not cause any side-effects. They are safe for people of all age groups and can be taken for a long period of time.
- Individualised medicine
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ treatment in homeopathy. It customizes treatment for all individuals. The homeopathic doctor takes an in-depth review of your health status, temperament, personality, likes and dislikes. This will be used to guide the selection of homeopathic medicines for your condition.
- Corrects the root cause
Homeopathy treats the whole person rather than just the physical symptoms, thereby correcting the root cause that has triggered your condition. For instance, if you’re having allergy due to weak immunity, or diabetes / thyroid due to genetic factors, or hair loss due to PCOS, homeopathy will correct the root cause.
- Less recurrence
Homeopathy treatment reduces recurrence rate. Let’s look at a case study for this. A detailed, long-term study conducted at Dr Batra’s™ showed that the recurrence rate of patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) was just 9.1% in patients treated with homeopathy, whereas it was as high as 50% in patients who took conventional treatment for hair loss.
- Treats acute and chronic conditions without surgical intervention
A number of surgical conditions such as recurrent tonsillitis, piles, gall bladder stones, small-sized uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, warts and corns can be treated effectively with homeopathy.
- Can be prescribed for pregnant women as well
While allopathic drugs can have possible side-effects on both mother and child, homeopathic remedies are safe and holistic in nature. They are ideal to address problems like nausea, anaemia, backache, cramps, morning sickness, heartburn, diarrhoea, blood pressure, emotional distress, etc., which usually occur during pregnancy. Also, since only tiny amounts of active ingredients are used, homeopathic medicines are safe for the growing baby as well.
- Can be taken along with allopathy
In patients suffering from drug-dependant diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure, allopathic drugs cannot be suddenly withdrawn; hence, homeopathic medicines can be taken with allopathic medicines.
If you are suffering from any chronic medical condition, then it is strongly advised to visit the nearest homeopathic clinic and get yourself treated. Book an appointment now.
