Homeopathic system of medicine is fast becoming popular not only as alternative system of medicine but as mainstream treatment mode. There are many people those are going to homeopathic doctors directly instead of going to them as the last resource. Basically homeopathy is one of the oldest medicinal sciences discovered by the master mind Dr Samuel Hahnemann more than 200 years ago. But still today, homeopaths follow the principle of nature depicted in the Organon of Medicine by Dr Hahnemann.
Many people know homeopathy by its eternal principle of "like cures like". It is the principle of nature and the remedy selection is thus based on it. People practicing homeopathy do not go or shall not go beyond this principle, otherwise they cannot cure the patient, but just suppress the disease. With the vast options homeopathy has for suffering humanity, we should know how to apply homeopathy in order to help humanity as a whole.
Let's see some important things homeopathy has to offer:
(1) Most chronic ailments find their cures in homeopathy. Arthritis, liver problems, kidney stones, asthma, allergic rhinitis, hemorrhoids, prostate troubles, gall stones, fissures, migraines, spondylosis, sciatica, after effects of head injury, various gastric problems, etc. Certainly there are very few ailments in which homeopathy does not help. Rather, when a homeopath works on the basis of symptom similarity, he can treat virtually any disease, rather patient suffering from that particular disease.
(2) In face of various infectious diseases, homeopathy has great role to play. The diseases like hay fever, swine flu, and chikungunya have shown us recently how homeopathy can tackle such nasty epidemics with its remedies. One must understand here that homeopathy could face severe criticism and still emerge unabated due to its effectiveness and result-oriented cures.
(3) Homeopathy is termed as surgeon's knife. The problems like abscesses, fissures, kidney stones, and appendicitis have found cure in homeopathy, where modern medicine would deal only with surgical intervention. Even for conditions like dispelling out a foreign body, homeopathic medicine helps one avoid surgery.
(4) Homeopathy offers study of human beings. Yes, it is one of the most important factors that go in favor of homeopathy. It is not a science that treats maladies. But it is the science that treats the persons suffering from that disease. And it always considers the problems individually. Homeopathy does not say it will have same remedy for a typhoid fever of two different people. Depending upon the varied symptoms and signs the patient presents with and depending upon his or her constitution, the homeopathic remedy selection differs.
(5) Homeopathy has offered a gift of natural medicines to mankind. The drug dosage is absolutely minute and just enough to cure a disease and never leads to cumulative effect in the system of a person. Therefore, there are no side effects with the homeopathic medicines. No wonder people like to follow homeopathic remedies those do not burden them with nasty chemicals and heal naturally.
