Frequently Asked Questions
What are Homeopathic medicines made of?
Homeopathic medicines are derived mostly from plants, vegetables and mineral substances. During the process of preparation, all Homeopathic medicines undergo a mathematico-mechanical process called Potentization, where the crude substance is serially diluted untill the required potency is reached.
The potentization process liberates the essence and the life force of the source substance which could then be used as remedy when indicated. When
indicated and given to a diseased individual this remedial life force stimulates the life forces and immune system of the human body bringing about a natural healing process.
How does a Homeopathic remedy work?
Homeopathic medicines act by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism and allowing the body to rectify the underlying root cause of the disease by itself
thus bringing rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health.
Scope of Homeopathy
Most common acute and chronic disorders can respond well to Homeopathic treatments. Acute conditions like common cold, fever, diarrhoea etc.., chronic conditions like arthritis, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome, urinary disorders, sexual disorders, women’s problems etc, and recurring conditions like migraines, sinusitis, allergies, etc, can be effectively treated using Homeopathy.
Surgery and Homeopathy
Homeopathy respects Surgery as an art and science in itself and recommends surgical intervention when and where necessary. Though Homeopathic treatment is not a replacement for surgery, it can be used in certain conditions labelled as ‘surgical’ like Renal calculi (kidney stones-small), Gall stones(small), certain growths (such as Ganglion), Tonsillitis, Warts, Callosities, Piles, Sinusitis, Polyps in ear and nose etc with effective results. It may also help to prevent future occurrence of certain
surgical conditions. It may also be of assistance to treat the after effects of surgery (like pains, infections, unusual sensations etc) and to hasten the healing process
after surgery and fractures.
Emergencies and Homeopathy
Homeopathy has no scope of treatment during emergencies. But, it can be effectively used during the period of recovery after an emergency situation.
