Homoeopathy is a holistic science, which renders cure and healing, rather than mere alleviation of disease, and takes into consideration the minutest details of the ailing person.
In today’s conventional practice, the physician spends very little time with the patient. It is of utmost importance that the doctor gives a patient hearing to the ailing person, spends some time to discuss about his/ her illness and understands the suffering of the individual seeking treatment.
Your Homeopathic Doctor Cares for You
During the process of homoeopathic case taking, your homeopathic consultant will not only enquire about all your physical ailments in detail but also will question about your general state of health, illnesses in the past and family, life situation, anxieties and stress, fears, dreams etc.
This helps your physician to perceive the diseased person in totality.
Homoeopathy is Safe
The doses of Homoeopathic medicines are prepared in a standardized, well-controlled and hygienic environment.
Homoeopathic medicines have sub physiological presence of the source substance, as a result of which, there are no toxicological effects remaining of the remedies. Hence there are no side effects or structural damages to the organs.
Also the medicines have no added colors or flavors. They are safe to administer in children, pregnant women, old people as well as in immuno-compromised individuals and people with weak constitutions.
The doses are calibrated in small quantities, so an accidental intake of extra medication (e.g. taking more number of pills at a time than advised) resulting in overdose is nil.
Homoeopathic Medicines are Palatable and Easy to Administer
Homoeopathic pills are sucrose based (so are sweet to taste) and are very much palatable. Children take these medicines willingly and do not make a “fuss” over taking medication.
Ingestion is easier as the pills have to be kept in the mouth, sucked and allowed to dissolve, so no water is required to swallow them. As the size of the pills is quite small, there is no gagging while swallowing the medicine.
There are no major food and diet restrictions as regards to the taking of Homoeopathic medicines. Patients is advised to avoid eating or drinking anything for approximately 15 minutes prior to and after taking the medicines, and avoid anything with a strong odor or taste.
In rare situations when a patient is not able to take drugs orally, homoeopathic medicines can be administered through olfaction (by inhalation) and that too with the same efficacy.
Homoeopathic medicines are also available in liquid form, so if desired, one can take them by adding a few drops of medicine in a tablespoon of water.
They are now also available in conventional blister packs, making it easier to carry them.
Homoeopathic Medicines are Easily Available
Homoeopathic medicines are easily available in most of the pharmacies on prescriptions, and some ‘over the counter preparations (like hair oils, soaps, shampoos, ointments) are also readily available. The cost of these medicines is relatively cheaper than conventional medications.
Homoeopathy for Enhanced Quality of Life
As Homoeopathy treats the individual as whole and not different parts of his body, the benefits of such a treatment are ten folds.
Individuals under the treatment experience a general sense of well-being. They feel better both mentally and physically and this has a profound effect on their day-to-day life.
People under regular homoeopathic treatment develop a good immunity, tend to fall less sick over a period of time and thus can live a healthier and fruitful life.
Hence homeopathy is considered as a healing science, which makes the patient better mentally (emotionally and intellectually), physically and socially, thus contributing to a better quality of life.
