Main indications in gastroenterology

In modern medicine, Asa foetida is prescribed in gastroenterology because of its many laxative, diuretic and antispasmodic properties. It can also relieve flatulence and dyspepsia, or reduce oesophageal and abdominal spasmodic contractions. The remedy can also relieve flatulence accompanied by constant belching and burning sensations in the abdomen, and it is also recommended for the treatment of yellow or brown foul-smelling liquid diarrhoea.

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.
