Dr Samuel Hahnemann developed homoeopathic medicine about 200 years ago in Germany. The aim of developing homoeopathic treatment was to reawaken the natural healing process of the body. Most of the treatments are based on natural ingredients that aim to enhance the immune system of the body to help fight different illnesses.
How does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathy works by aiming at improving the natural healing of the body. The administration of medication produced through Homeopathy is designed to produce the symptoms that are similar to the disease. For example, homoeopathic medications are made from ingredients that can cause symptoms of an illness in your body; medications used for eyes usually contain extracts of red onion to treat eye problems. Red onion often makes the eyes water and cause a burning sensation in the eyes.
Consider Every Characteristic of the Patient Including the Symptoms
Scientific research indicates a close connection between mental state, stress and personality structure, and the ability of the body to react and cope with the disease. Hence, Homeopathy includes taking into consideration all aspects of the patient. Before providing any kind of medication, the homoeopath will consider the different personality traits of the individual. The character, attitude towards life, pathological background and temperament are put into consideration along with the symptoms of illnesses before prescribing a medication.
To weaken the strength of these ingredients, homoeopaths add water to the extracts to limit their potency. The mixture is shaken so that everything is mixed, this process is called the potentization. This step allows the transfer of healing essence. Homoeopathic experts believe that a lower dose is more potent than a larger dosage. Some of the homoeopathic remedies do not contain the original molecules from its source. In fact, they come in a variety of different forms like liquid drops, gels, tablets and sugar pellets.
