Homeopathy is currently used in over eighty countries throughout the world, mainly in Europe. It is also highly represented in South America (Brazil, Argentina), India and Pakistan. Although still not very present in North America, constant growth is nevertheless noted.
Over the last thirty years, homeopathy has also developed or made an appearance in South Africa, Tunisia, Morocco, Venezuela, Israel, Australia, etc.
Homeopathy is a system that attempts to stimulate the body to heal itself. All symptoms, no matter how uncomfortable they are, represent the body’s attempt to restore itself to health. In conventional medical thought, health is seen simply as the absence of disease. You assume that you are healthy if there is nothing wrong with you. To a person versed in homeopathy, health is much more than that. A healthy person is a person who is free on all levels: physical, emotional, and mental.
It is a system that looks at individuals and not at diseases. Modern homeopathic doctors work in the same way as their conventional colleagues. History taking, examination and investigation are all important in establishing the diagnosis - in understanding just what is wrong. However, homeopathic doctors consider a wider range of aspects of the patient's condition - personality traits, physical features, the effects of a variety of environmental influences, patterns of disease within families, and family and social relationships.
Homeopathy, on the other hand, looks for the one substance that will cause similar symptoms in a healthy person. The person with a cough characterized by being worse when breathing cold air, and sounding like a deep bark, will need a quite different remedy than the person whose cough is loose in the morning, dry in the evening, and better when sitting up in bed. We characterize both as "coughs" but they are different illnesses in the individuals, and therefore require different homeopathic treatment.
Homeopathy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. It can help to repair any damage, which the body has the potential to repair, and help restore the balances and mechanisms involved in recovery and health. Despite the differences in approach, homeopathic and conventional treatments can work very well alongside each other. In cases were conventional treatment is to be continued like in cases of hypertension, diabetes mellitus the treatment can be continued with homeopathic management along with.
Many conditions can be treated effectively by homeopathy, from asthma, rheumatism, arthritis, eczema to more simple cases of cuts and bruises. It is widely used, for example, in conditions such as allergies, asthma, eczema, recurrent respiratory infections, gastrointestinal complaints like GERD, gastric, duodenal and peptic ulcers, IBS, initial stages of piles, fissure, fistula ano, infertility, uterine fibroid, ovarian cysts, DUB, renal stones, UTI, arthritis, gout.
To discover how best to help, the homeopath will want to know not only about your illness but also about you. How you are affected by environmental factors such as temperature and the weather, the kinds of food that you eat or the food you avoid, your moods and feelings, and your medical history will all help to establish a complete picture of you as a person. The homeopath then relates the description of your current symptoms to all this background knowledge in order to prescribe the correct remedy at the right strength. Choice of remedy is therefore based on you and your condition, not just on your symptoms.
Remedies are derived from a variety of natural materials including plants and minerals and are prepared in licensed laboratories under strict quality control. They are given in tablet, granule or powder form and are available in different, but extremely dilute strengths, which are identified by a potency number. Choosing the right remedy at the appropriate strength is very important. These substances are diluted carefully until little of the original remains.
