Dear doctor B

What are the conditions/ailments for which homeopathy is most effective?

Almost all ailments are amenable to homeopathic treatment. But Homeopathy is best known for its ability to treat chronic ailments. The reason for this is that Homeopathy is the only system of medicine which offers curative treatment (not palliative) in many chronic ailments which have been declared ‘incurable’ by other schools of medicine. Be it skin disease, chronic gastric and intestinal disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine, asthma, allergic disorders, menstrual complaints, other hormonal disorders, arthritis, psychological disorders etc etc. All these and many more chronic ailments have been affected curatively by Homeopathy. The only major limiting factors are 1. Gross structural and pathological changes. 2. Very low vitality of the patient. 3. Unavoidable presence of certain causative or maintaining factors.
Then Homeopathy is also known to make surgery unnecessary on many occasions. Many a tonsils, adenoids, appendices etc have been saved with Homeopathy. Benign tumors and renal stones also respond well to homeopathic treatment.

Even in cases where curative treatment is not possible in all cases, like advanced cases of arthritis, malignancies etc management and palliation with homeopathic medicines is very effective and improves the quality of life of such patients without making them suffer with the side-effects of the modern wonder-drugs ( ! ).

Homeopathy is also very-very effective in acute ailments. And the action of a rightly selected medicine is usually faster then any other medicines. Not only this, under proper homeopathic treatment the tendency to frequent recurrence of acutes and their tendency to become chronic is aborted.

One last thing! In Homeopathy it is said that Homeopathy never fails, it’s the Homeopath that fails. And although Homeopathy has it’s limitations, most ‘curable’ cases that do not respond to Homeopathy are due to improper selection of medicine or potency and case management. So if you don’t get benefit from Homeopathy at first, don’t dump Homeopathy-dump the Homeopath. 😉
