The word “homeopathy” was derived from the Greek words homoios (similar) andpathos (disease).
Homeopathy is efficient and scientifically based on the method of treatment that
encourages (stimulates) the natural capabilities of a human organism to the healing, so-called ,,principle of similar” (like cures like – similia similibus curantur).
This principle was known and applied by Hippocrates and Paracelsus, but
practically was developed by a German physician, Samuel Christian Friedrich Hahnemann (1755-1843) in Europe almost two centuries ago.
Being translating a book about the pharmacology, Hahnemann read about the Cinchona officinalis (quinine), which was used in the treatment of malaria, and began taking the daily doses of plant. Soon he noticed that he felt the symptoms of malaria even though he was not infected with the disease.
He was wondering could it be the reason for healing malaria by quinine. After that Hahnemann tested many other substances in the same way – by giving doses to healthy people and applying those substances to treatment for diseases with similar symptoms. He was trying to find a minimum dosage for the reason that the substances he worked with were very toxic. As a result homeopathic medicines were created in the various potencies (dilutions). In such a way the homeopathic treatment is a “no medicine” method because the patients are not given chemical products, so there is no side effect.
Homeopathic medications act by encouraging or stimulating the power of a person (the Vital Force Principle). That force is sometimes underestimated but it helps the patient to detox and put an end to the imbalance within the body which led to health problems.
Fifteen minutes before and after the drug is taken, there must be nothing put into the mouth, not even water, toothpaste or cigarettes. It is also a good idea to avoid coffee, peppermint, some cups or products containing mint, eucalyptus, chamomile or camphor because they can annul the drug action. If the patient should take homeopathic medicine during the next few days, then the prescribed medicine should be kept in a metal box, far from anything that has a strong smell, a source of magnetic radiation, mobile phones, X-ray devices and TV screens. If travelling, the X-ray control must be avoided.
Ones the patient starts taking homeopathic medicine, he can feel some changes. Sometimes it seems as if it’s getting worse in one short time.
It’s a good sign that proves the homeopathic medicine has started to work. Sometimes old symptoms can appear, several decades old, but this usually happens in a short period of time. All this should not be confusing you because these conditions will pass and must not be repressed because they are a very important part of the healing. If any reaction in the process is upsetting the patient, the homeopathic doctor must be seen as soon as possible so the doctor can follow what is happening during the treatment.
The length of the treatment depends on the type of pain that the patients suffer from and individual patient’s characteristics. No one homeopathic doctor can pre-evaluate the course of the treatment. The way every patient reacts on the prescribed medicine should be examined during a long time. It may occur that the problems that have been evolving or lasted for years will not disappear immediately, though reactions and partial improvements can be reached in a short time. Acute problems can be cured much faster.
The dynamic of the Homeopathic healing shows that the symptoms run from the inside out, so if the person has problems in the respiratory system, then they will disappear first and after that some skin disorders could be vanished.
The patient must be dedicated because it is important for him to find the root of the disease and eliminate it but not only to get the relief and to suppress the symptoms (so-called palliative treatment). Each case is different regardless of the fact that some patients might have the same symptoms.
