What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a holistic approach that uses natural substances to gently stimulate the bodyís self-healing abilities. If a herb or natural substance is consumed in large amounts and causes a specific set of symptoms to occur, then the same ingredient in the herb or substance in small amounts can stimulate the body to fight against the same symptoms.
Homeopathic medicine is used to treat illnesses and address physical and emotional symptoms. An example of how homeopathic medications work can be seen in the simple example of the red onion.People often experience watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy throat after chopping up some red onions. In homeopathic medicine, the red onion is actually used in certain potencies to treat watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy throat that stems from mild allergies or the common cold. The great thing about homeopathic medicine is that it stimulates the body's own healing powers to overcome symptoms naturally thereby strengthening the body's own defenses at the same time.
Are homeopathic remedies safe?
Yes. Homeopathy is gentle and suitable for use on all ages including pregnant women and babies. Additionally, each remedy is in specialized potencies that, in most cases, can be safely combined with prescription medications under the supervision of a naturopathic doctor. They are not only safe to use on humans, but also animals. Many Veterinarians regularly use homeopathy in treating animals.
How long does it take for the remedies to work?
Everyone responds to homeopathic medications differently therefore, the time it takes for the medications to work is based on each individuals emotional and physical state. Some patients show immediate results that continue to increase as time goes by while others see results over a few weeks of regular usage.
Homeopathic remedies work from the source of the issue and often lead to more energy and positivity. It also works externally on skin conditions which often times clear up after a few treatments. Sometimes patience is needed due to the fact that internal balance is slowly being restored especially in cases where conditions have been harbored for many years.
