Facts & Myths of Homeopathy

Changes for the Better.

“This clinic is not about giving medicines. This clinic is about curing with medicines rapidly, gently and permanently to the whole extent in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way”. – Dr Umang Khanna (Top Influencer of Homoeopathy in India)

Homeopathy: a holistic approach
From a holistic perspective, the patient is considered as unique, requiring individual assessment and treatment. As an integrated entity, including the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and any other aspects of the total person. Individuals are seen as living systems that are self-healing, self-renewing, homeostatic and adaptive. Health is not merely the absence of disease/illness, but the ability of a system, e.g. cell, organism, family, society to respond adaptively to a wide range of environmental challenges. Disease is considered as a result of an off-balance state of the whole individual (mind and body) rather than a local disturbance.
Homeopathy looks beyond the labels of disease to cure their causes rather than merely their symptoms and it stimulates the body’s own natural healing powers to bring health, vitality and well-being. It does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals the patient from within. It uses medicines that cover the disturbance of the whole person rather than giving different medicines for different afflicted parts of the body. Patients often report improvement in overall energy, mood, quality of sleep, and digestion, and the disappearance of other symptoms apparently unrelated to the condition being treated with homeopathy.
Homeopathic doctors relate individual patterns of responding to environmental influences, infectious agents and potential stressors to specific homeopathic medicines that can remedy these susceptibility patterns. Skilled homeopathic prescribing requires that the characteristics of the chosen medicine should be as similar as possible to the characteristics of the illness in the patient. The more detailed the understanding of the symptom nuances of the patient, the more accurate the prescription. Thus, homeopathy is highly individualised and based upon a holistic assessment. As well as the patient’s actual complaint and conventional diagnosis, the following factors may play an important part in medicine selection, especially in chronic disease:  the patient’s constitution, emotional and mental make-up, the way the patient responds to physical, emotional and mental influences/stress in his/her life, the patient’s personality, temperament, genetic predispositions and any strong family history of particular diseases.

ions India Homoeoparthy

“As RIGVEDA (the source book from which ayurveda originated, it is writen “A cure for poison lies in the poison itself”. The word homoeopathy is derived from a great word homoios (similar) and pathos (suffering) which means “LIKE CURES LIKE”n.”

Facts & Myths of Homeopathy

Despite being hailed as the second largest system of healing in the world by the World Health Organization, homeopathy is still plagued with several misconceptions. A majority of these criticisms have been made by the non-medical and non-homeopathic community which have continued over the years without any attempt to understand the facts and science behind it.

Homoeopathy takes time to act

Homoeopathy Acts Instantly. Take an example – person comes with acute cold and sneezing to the clinic. A tongue dose of Nux Vomica IM is administered to the patient, within 20 seconds the patient gets relief. Is it slow?

Homoeopath aggravates the disease

Homoeopathy does not lead to initial aggravation. It is just only that the patients progression of the disease coincides with the medicine. The momentum of progression of disease process worsens the natural course and when this momentum of progression is stopped by the grace of the medicinal power of the medicines the disease progresses on its way to cure.

Homoeopathy has no authentically and recognition

If homoeopathy had no authenticity than why many government’s including India have separate ministries, degrees, secretaries, ministries and government controlled and funded homoeopathic medical collages. Any way science which had no authenticity and results would not have been able to survive and thieve for so long.

Homoeopathy is simply alcohol

Homoeopathy is an Art and science which is based on subatomic particles i.e. ions and works dynamically where alcohol is simply a vehicle to carry medicinal properties to the patient.

Homoeopathy cannot be taken with allopathy

As the purpose of Homeopathic and allopathic medicines is same in some aspects so as to give relief to the patients (homoeopathy goes a step further of curing them of their disease) they can be given together

Homoeopathic medicines are only sugar pills

Pills are made from sugar but they are only vehicles which carry the dynamic medicinal curing properties of the medicine to the individual.

Homoeopathic medicines have steroids

No, it is a misconception. All homoeopathy medicines are prepared by using scientific predefined methods of extracting the medicinal properties from source substances. And more so if medicines would have been steroids they should have resulted in giving permanent cure to the patient.

Homoeopathic medicines call for strict food restrictions

The only norm for dietary restriction in homoeopathy is not to eat anything fifteen minutes before and after the administration of dose

Homoeopathic medicines cannot be taken during pregnancy

Homoeopathy can be taken during pregnancy barring few homoeopathic medicines such as natrum muraticum and pulsatilla. In fact if the treatment is property planned it will have lots of benefits to the mother and child. From old times medicine called colchicum is used for easy parturition

Let’s Move Forward

This clinic is not about giving medicines. This clinic is about curing with medicines rapidly, gently and permanently to the whole extent in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way.
