Ever since my children were small, I have always used Homeopathy on them to treat ailments, rather than resorting to traditional medicine. Homeopathy has successfully treated my family’s ailments, with common conditions such as coughs; colds, temperatures, strains and aches and pains etc.
I will be describing some of the basic remedies so you get a taster of what Homeopathy can do and their every day usefulness, but first of all I will go on to explain a little bit about Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is a Holistic Health Practice, based on treating the patient as a whole, using highly diluted substances in tablet form that match the patient’s symptoms. Its job is to trigger the body into healing itself more efficiently with no side effects.
Homeopathy has always been based on the principle that you ‘treat like for like,’ which means administering the patient with the same substance as the substance that has caused the symptoms in the first place, but in much smaller diluted amounts.
It is based on the patient’s individual symptoms, with the most appropriate remedy administered to cure the patient from his/her symptoms. An hour’s consultation period is normally recommended, but not always essential if one is familiar with its teachings.
The remedies themselves come from plants, minerals and animals. Where as conventional medicine suppresses the immune system, regular treatment of Homeopathy is known to boost the immune system and can be taken in the safe knowledge that there are no side effects.
It is becoming more popular, but there is still more that needs to be known about it.
