Many Great Homeopathy Happy Users
What do Mahatma Gandhi, Tina Turner, John D. Rockefeller, and Great Britain’s royal family have in common? They are/were all strong supporters of homeopathy. There is only one reason why these and other noteworthy individuals across the world support homeopathic treatment – it works!
Homeopathy is used to treat various conditions including physical and psychological illnesses. People seek homeopathic treatment for conditions such as asthma, hay fever, ear infections, allergies, arthritis, dermatitis, high blood pressure, and mental health conditions (such as anxiety, stress, and depression), just to name a few.
What Is Homeopathy
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, gave two Laws of Healing: the Law of Similars and the Law of Opposites. Conventional medicine utilizes the Law of Opposites – antibiotics, anticonvulsants, anti-depressants, anti-inflammatories, and many more.
Homeopathy uses the Law of Similars, its defining principle is “like cures like.” This means that the substances that cause symptoms in healthy people can be used to cure those symptoms.
Homeopathy is a form of treatment that respects the body’s wisdom. It makes use of natural remedies that activate the body’s immune system to kick off the healing process. It personalizes medicines according to a person’s physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. The approach is widely recognized as safe and is very useful in the treatment of new diseases that affect us in the 21st century.
Who Invented Homeopathy?
Homeopathy was invented by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann in 1796. He is said to have based his theory of like cures like on an experience where he consumed cinchona bark, quinine’s source that is used to treat malaria. After ingesting it, he experienced symptoms common to malaria. He concluded that the substance’s power to cure the disease lay in its ability to create symptoms like the disease itself.
Hahnemann and his followers administered minerals, herbs, and other substances to healthy people and recorded what they observed. The observations were later compiled into lengthy reference books named materia medica which proponents refer to.
Principles of Homeopathy
Many people think that homeopathy and herbal medicine are the same but they are not. Homeopathy is based on 3 core principles that have never been changed since they were invented by Samuel Hahnemann.
The Principle of Similars
This law states that the substances that cause symptoms also cure them. For example, if you have difficulty sleeping, taking caffeine can help; if you have watery eyes due to hay fever, onions can help.
Homeopathic doctors believe that all living organisms have an automatic healing response. When you are unwell, your body produces symptoms in order to overcome the illness. By using a homeopathic remedy, you give your body the information it needs to restore health. The medicine works by first increasing the symptoms then cures the disease from within.
The Principle of Infinitesimals
Hahnemann proposed he could boost the potency of a homeopathic treatment by diluting it in water. The more dilute the treatment, the stronger it would be. The original substance was diluted and shaken to attain the desired potency and to discharge its dynamic nature. Hahnemann discovered that tiny doses worked better than large ones and prevented adverse reactions and side effects.
Homeopathic doctors use pills and liquid concoctions containing small amounts of active ingredients to treat diseases. These are known as “potentiated” or highly diluted substances. Research has shown that homeopathic treatments are effective.
The principle that only the minimum dose should be used is based on the belief that the medicine’s stimulus works from within its energy and is not inflicted from the outside. Only a small amount is needed to initiate the healing process, which the body continues, driven by its internal healing mission.
The Principle of Succussion
Hahnemann made an amazing discovery one day as he was transporting his treatments on a horse-drawn carriage. He realized that the potency of a homeopathic remedy could be increased by vigorous shaking. This shaking process is referred to as succussion. When preparing homeopathic treatments, homeopathic doctors shake or tap them at each stage of dilution in order to make them more powerful.
