HOMEOPATHY VS. TRADITIONAL MEDICINE
Although traditional medicine has made tremendous strides, many common ailments remain mysteries. Homeopathy works on a deeper level and acts as a preventive to make sure that these illnesses cannot invade your body.
Traditional medicine can suppress symptoms. Homeopathy seeks to understand the real meaning of symptoms. A homeopathic remedy encourages the body to heal the imbalance that caused those symptoms. For some, homeopathy is a welcome alternative to traditional medicine. For others, it is the first and only choice.
KEY CONCEPTS OF HOMEOPATHY
Some key concepts of homeopathy include:
• Homeopathy seeks to stimulate the body’s defense mechanisms and processes so as to prevent or treat illness.
• Treatment involves giving very small doses of substances called remedies that, according to homeopathy, would produce the same or similar symptoms of illness in healthy people if they were given in larger doses.
• Treatment in homeopathy is individualized (tailored to each person). Homeopathic practitioners select remedies according to a total picture of the patient, including not only symptoms but lifestyle, emotional and mental states, and other factors.
TREATING THE SOURCE
A homeopathic remedy seeks to ameliorate symptoms by focusing on the source of the imbalance causing them, finding the root cause and honing in on the mental and emotional aspects. The best treatment is a holistic one. Homeopathy always seeks to cure the whole person.
