Homeopathy FAQ and Interesting facts

Interesting facts

Mahatma Gandhi, said "Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond all doubt safer, more economical and the most complete medical science."

Over 300 million people around the world utilize homeopathic remedies. It is the second most widely used form of medicine for primary care in the world today.

The principle of “Like cures Like” is not unique to homeopathy. This general approach to remedies has been used by Mayan, ancient Chinese, Asian and Native American cultures.

The Mayo Clinic has recently published an article saying that in their professional opinion, “Homeopathic treatments work!”

Homeopathy FAQ 3

Do homeopathic remedies have side effects?

NO! That’s one of their key benefits. They react at the energetic level, not a chemical one.

Homeopathy FAQ 4

Does Classical Homeopathy always work?

A homeopathic remedy can have one of three results:

  • It aids the body’s self-healing capabilities as intended.
  • It does nothing (typically because the wrong remedy or wrong dosage was recommended)
  • It may “prove”.

Proving means that the remedy will temporarily cause an increase in symptoms it is given to eliminate. Homeopathic remedies are discovered by giving them to healthy individuals to confirm the type of symptoms they will heal when properly prescribed to a person with an ailment. Proving in an ailing patient may suggest the need for an alternate remedy.

There are two situations where the homeopathic remedy will not work.

  • When the patient has genetic abnormalities of the immune system, Classical Homeopathy may not be able to strengthen this system. In this case no self-healing can occur.
  • When the patient makes life choices that continually expose themselves to the things that make them sick, remedies cannot overcome the bombardment. For example, if you smoke you will cough and get cancer regardless of any classical homeopathic intervention.

How do you take homeopathic remedies?

Remedies come in one of two forms: small pellets or in a liquid. Duration and frequency depend on your condition, from only one treatment to multiple times a day for an extended period.

It is ideal for the remedy to be placed under the tongue, and if a pellet allowed to dissolve rather than be chewed. Whenever possible, don’t touch the remedy between the container and it’s consumption. (we recommend using the cap of the remedy bottle as a small cup.)

It is also recommended that nothing be in your mouth 10 minutes prior and after administration. Store containers in a cool, dark place.

Homeopathy FAQ 10

Stores generally sell a small selection of lower potency remedies that are not generally used by experienced homeopaths. Classical Homeopaths select from over 3500 of possible remedies to discover the treatment that will be most effective for you.

While you may achieve positive results from store bought remedies for acute ailments, knowing the proper remedies and dosages generally requires the assistance of a homeopath.

Final FAQ 11

If Classical Homeopathy is so effective, why is it such a minimal part of the medical industry in the USA?

Money. Homeopathic remedies are relatively inexpensive and cannot be patented, as drugs can. Therefore there is little profit motive.

Seriously, the modern physician’s training is almost entirely in allopathic solutions (chemicals that suppress symptoms). Current growth of the alternative, natural, holistic approach in the US reflects the fact that across the globe Classical Homeopathy has been recognized as an effective treatment for centuries. Today more people are choosing natural approaches to better health.
