Homeopathic Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

Q – How does homeopathy work?
A – Homeopathy is based on a belief that you may treat “like with like”, or in other words in homeopathic medicine, often the exact substance which is causing the problem in a patient is the perfect homeopathic remedy. For example drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine it could be used to treat people with these symptoms.

Q – Is homeopathy scientifically backed up?
A – Science is still unable to explain how ultra high dilutions of a substance can actually affect the body, however laboratory experiments have repeatedly demonstrated that homeopathically prepared substances cause biological effects. In one such study entitled: The Metamorphosis of Amphibians and Information of Thyroxine, the hormone thyroxine was diluted to a homeopathic and fed to tadpoles. To the surprise of the scientists, the homeopathic indeed did slow down the metamorphosis of tadpole to frog*

Q – What is the process used to create a homeopathic medicine?
A – Video: YouTube Preview Image

  1. The process of making a homeopathic remedy was first developed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the 19th century. A tincture is made by soaking a plant in alcohol for weeks or months and placed in a dark area so as not to destroy the chemical parts of the plant.
  2. The next part is to dilute a drop of the original mixture in nine drops of purified water. This diluted solution is then succussed, or shaken with impact. Succussion is a process is unique to homeopathy. Instead of simply mixing or shaking a solution, the solution is placed in a sealed container and forcefully impacted from the bottom, usually by a pounding method, at least 100 times. The process of succussion is critical to vitalize, or energize, the remedy. Simply diluting a tincture does not make it a homeopathic remedy.
  3. The final dilution is then added by dropper to a lactose-based sugar pill, which is what is sold in the store. Most homeopathic remedies are at least 6x, and can be higher. Homeopaths teach that the higher the dilution (and therefore, the potency) the stronger the remedy. The homeopathic preparation that you buy at the store is normally diluted to one part of the remedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.

Q – Are homeopathic medicines effective?
A – As with any form of natural healing or traditional drugs for that matter the effectiveness of homeopathic preparations for natural healing is highly debated. The success of homeopathic preparations are based on antidotal evidence of effectiveness rather than scientific evidence. There are people all over the world who would answer with a passionate YES! From a personal standpoint, I have used homeopathic preparation which have worked immediately and effectively and I have used homeopathic preparations which have not worked at all. When considering homeopathics you are choosing a gentle method of healing which may or may not work for you. It
is appropriate to note here that with conventional medicine you take the same risk of effectiveness but with a far less gentle approach for your body.

Q – Are homeopathic medicines addictive?
A. No.

Q – Are homeopathic medicines safe for children?
A – Yes. The amount of dilution which occurs to create a homeopathic remedy renders the substance completely non-toxic. Homeopathic preparations are completely safe for patients including children.

 

Conclusion

Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade. It is so popular in Europe and is so widely accepted that is should no longer be classified as a “natural alternative”.  Although studies have proven the effect of homeopathy on animals, however, patient success is the greatest testimony to the effectiveness of homeopathic medicine for humans.

From colic to depression, natural healing can be achieved easily, safely and effectively with homeopathics.
