ABC of Homeopathy

Benefits of Homeopathy

Understand how homeopathy can help you, in the short-term and for long-term health!

Homeopathy is safe. Unlike other medicines, homeopathic medicines usually do not have any side effects. Their ability to cause structural damage is Nil. The reason for this is that homeopathic medicines act by stimulating the body’s own defense mechanism and healing powers. They do not have any chemical action, so they do not have the potential to cause any sustained damage. The doses are given in sub-physiological quantities. So they can be given to children and adults alike without worrying about the dosage. Safe for every one.

Homeopathic medicines are very effective – in both acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathy in fact, is the only system of medicine which offers curative treatment (not palliative) to a large number of chronic ailments which have been labeled as ‘incurable’ by other schools of medicine. In acute ailments also, homeopathic remedies, if selected properly, give results faster then any other systems of medicine.

Homeopathic medicines are easy to administer. Homeopathic medicines are usually dispensed as sweet sugar pills, which are very easy to take. Due to this reason, children readily agree to take homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathic treatment is cheap. Homeopathic medicines are usually much cheaper than comparable allopathic and ayurvedic drugs. And also there is little stress on costly diagnostic procedures as homeopaths rely on the symptoms to find the right medicine for a person. So the overall cost of treatment is very little. Still this may not appear so to many people in western countries as homeopathic treatment is usually not covered by insurance companies. But that’s myopic vision. One has to think of long-term gains. Under proper homeopathic treatment not only the person’s immediate complaints improve, but also his/her susceptibility to disease decreases as there is a general improvement in health. So in the long run, there is better health, less medical consultations and the cumulative cost is very low. Even otherwise, hasn’t some wise man said ..”Health is the real Wealth“?

Homeopathy considers the complaints of a patient in totality. It views a person as a whole, as an integrated entity, and not as a mere collection of body parts. So it treats the person as a whole too. Thus one does not have to visit ten different ‘specialists’ for his/her ten different body parts. After all our body is more than a collection of parts! So homeopathy saves your time, money and health at the same time.

    • Dr. Bhatia writes, “Their ability to cause structural damage is Nil.” Wrong, frequent repetition of deep-acting remedies in potency can lead to a lot of structural damage. The statement should rather be, ‘If properly dispensed, Homeopathy remedies will not lead to structural changes.’

      ‘So they can be given to children and adults alike without worrying about the dosage.’ Wrong again….

  • The simillimum or the rightfully chosen remedy for the patient is the right remedy, the right potency (strength) and the right dose (amount).

  • I haven’t tried homeopathic treatments before, but it may be something to look into. I like that natural treatments don’t have side effects; dealing with side effects can be extremely inconvenient and exhausting. I also didn’t know that it is useful against chronic diseases. Those with a chronic illness may want to start looking into natural treatments, it may improve their condition.
