Homeopathy is a natural holistic approach, which treats the person as a whole. The main aim of Homeopathy is to give permanent relief of disease symptoms and also improve general well being. Homeopathy is a system of medicine originating from Germany about 200 years ago. Homeopathic medicines are safe, effective, non-chemical, and natural substances. There are no known side effects. Homeopathic medicines are derived from plants, animal and mineral origin. These medicines are easy to consume even by an infant. Homeopathic preparations do not interfere with other drug therapies.
Homeopathy is recommended for all age groups. It is safe to be on Homeopathic medicines even during pregnancy and lactation. Many chronic and acute conditions can be successfully treated with Homeopathy. In children, it can help to boost the immune system and reduces frequent infections. Terminal illness patients can also be on Homeopathic medicines, which gives temporary relief with no known side effects and also decreases suffering.
During a Homeopathic consultation the patient not only reveals details about their symptoms, but also about past history, family history, and physical and mental symptomology. It is important for a Homeopath to know the person as a whole so that a well-indicated constitutional remedy can be prescribed.
