Effectiveness of homoeopathy

Homoeopathy, an effective and reliable therapeutic method

Since its creation, more than two centuries ago, homoeopathy has allowed many patients to heal themselves and to recover their health. Despite the scepticism of some practitioners, more and more patients concerned about their physical and moral well-being now trust this gentle and natural therapeutic method, of which they recognize the countless benefits. Effective and reliable, homoeopathy helps to treat and prevent a large number or internal and external pathologies without causing harm to the body.

When Samuel Hahnemann defined the basic principles of homoeopathy after many experiments and observations, his goal was to create a new form of medicine that could effectively treat patients while restoring their well-being. Tired of barbaric medical practices that he deemed to be overly aggressive, he chose to treat his patients by administering remedies that were free of toxicity, but highly effective at the same time. After each treatment, Samuel Hahnemann noticed the patients’ systematic healing, despite using remedies with very low dosage. Today, homoeopathy retains its benefits more than ever and as such continues to convince patients around the world, thanks to its incredible effectiveness. Preventive and curative at the same time, this natural therapy is safe for the body, which allows a patient to use it for extensive periods of time without any risk of addiction or toxicity. Natural and holistic, homoeopathic remedies also have distinctive feature of treating a patient as a whole, so that his or her entire body can be regenerated.

What are the diseases that homoeopathy can cure?

Although homoeopathy is a form of medicine of which the therapeutic effectiveness has been proven, it is important to know that its scope is limited to only five major types of pathology. Nonetheless, these pathologies correspond to the most common diseases, which allows one to say that homoeopathy provides a reliable therapeutic solution to the ills from which humans suffer most.

Homoeopathic medicine is used to treat acute, chronic and recurrent affections, but also the numerous and serious pathologies. However, it is imperative to note that in case of serious illness, homoeopathic treatment cannot serve as a substitute to allopathic treatment  since, in such a case, it will only act as a palliative remedy. Indeed, it has been shown that homoeopathy helps to fight off, with remarkable efficiency, the side effects caused by the allopathic treatments that are usually recommended in case of severe disease.

Furthermore, know that homoeopathy can also be used in a preventive manner to reduce the risk of outbreak of seasonal diseases or temporary affections, such as influenza. Although it has often been said that this therapeutic method only acts over long periods of time, it is useful to point out that this belief is completely incorrect. Thus, with an appropriate prescription and a remedy taken on a regular basis, the symptoms always disappear very quickly and only very rarely reappear. In most cases, homoeopathy is able to overcome the disease without requiring the patient to resort to other treatments.

How is the law of similars able to effectively cure a disease?

For Hippocrates, it seemed obvious that like could be cured by like.  Thanks to this theory, Hahnemann discovered that pathologies could be effectively treated by using remedies that would produce, in a healthy patient, the same symptoms as those observed in a patient affected by a particular disease.  While this discovery received a very poor welcome from Hahnemann’s contemporaries, it is clear that the principle of similarity has contributed to the healing of hundreds of thousands of patients over the years.

Thanks to the abundant medical research that has been conducted ever since, it is now possible to state that any substance capable of producing, in a healthy subject,  the pathological manifestations associated with a specific disease can also be used to eliminate these same symptoms in a sick patient when it is administered in infinitesimal doses.

Thus, having the specific characteristic of reproducing a disease’s symptoms, homoeopathic treatment can be used to effectively fight off this same disease without exposing the patient to any danger whatsoever.

How is the potentisation process able to reinforce the homoeopathic remedy’s effectiveness?

If homoeopathy is able to provide a reliable therapeutic response to a disease, it is largely due to the potentisation process developed by Samuel Hahnemann in his experiments. Concerned about his patients’ health, the German doctor had indeed created a principle of dilution that involved gradually decreasing the concentration of the used substance, so that it was eventually deprived of any toxicity it could have contained. Unfortunately, the remedies thus developed only had a very low range of action, which then pushed Hahnemann to continue his research in order to create the potentisation process.

Thus, it is important to know that the therapeutic effectiveness of homoeopathy mainly lies in this unique process that involve shaking the solutions that are gradually obtained so that the preparations can retain all of their healing properties. Although the potentisation process is a very controversial procedure, it has been proven that the performed succussions made ??it possible to eliminate the toxicity of the stock used while drastically optimizing the remedy’s therapeutic action. Thanks to the potentisation, the active ingredients are able to retain all of their healing virtues despite numerous dilutions, which makes them more effective for fighting off diseases.

How is the individualisation principle able to guarantee a more effective therapeutic effectiveness?

Unlike allopathic medicine, homoeopathic medicine claims that it is important to treat the patient as a whole so that his or her recovery is complete and lasting. Indeed, allopathic medicine primarily aims to treat symptoms linked to a given disease, without really taking the whole into account. In homoeopathy, it is however important to consider the whole patient , knowing that each individual is unique in his or her constitution and his or her thoughts. As a matter of fact, beyond the visible disease, homoeopathy focuses on the individuality of each human being, in order to provide a patient with a therapeutic solution that is adapted to his or her ills.

The individualisation principle allows the remedy to act more effectively, due to the fact that the patient’s body is treated as whole. When a disease’s symptoms are addressed in a standardized and isolated manner, the physical and moral well-being may in fact be much more difficult to perceive. However, when care is tailored to each individual patient,  the effects of both the emotional and physical well-being are felt , which then enables optimal therapeutic effectiveness.

Is homoeopathy subjected to medical research that guarantees its effectiveness?

Today, numerous medical studies are underway to highlight the many healing properties of homoeopathy. Carried out by well-known laboratories, this research can show the extent of this natural therapeutic method’s effectiveness on the human body. To this day, many studies have helped prove that homoeopathy was a reliable alternative for those wishing to preserve their health and cure various ailments without needing to resort to a variety of aggressive treatments. In addition, some of these studies have also shown that the effectiveness of homoeopathy was real and that its therapeutic action could in no way be simply summed down to the placebo effect that some claim is behind its success.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
