More and more people are now using unconventional medicines to treat themselves. Homeopathy is one of these alternative therapeutic procedures to which suffering people can turn.  In fact, it is very popular all over the world.

Homeopathy: what exactly does it consist of?

Homeopathy is an alternative medicine developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann. It is a medicine that takes into account the patient as a whole. Instead of treating only the symptoms, homeopathy will therefore mainly enable the body of each patient to fully regain its balance. It should be noted, however, that it is essential to contact a health professional in order to be prescribed a homeopathic treatment of any kind.

In particular, it is possible to be prescribed nutritional supplements to prevent nutrient deficiencies, iron deficiency or the harmful effects caused by poor blood circulation. To keep in shape and stay healthy, it is also possible to fill up on natural antioxidants. Homeopathic antioxidants help to prevent various diseases, but also to fight the effects of aging. More and more doctors are offering their patients homeopathic treatment as a complement to the basic treatment they prescribe.

On what principles are homeopathic treatments based?

A homeopathic treatment is mainly based on the principle of similarity. Homeopathy will thus fight against diseases through similars. According to clinical research, a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy person when administered in high doses could help to cure a sick person when diluted.  This dilution is necessary to prevent the homeopathic remedy from causing adverse effects to the patient.

Homeopathy is also based on the law of individuation. Human organisms do not react in the same way. A homeopathic treatment will therefore cure each patient in itself and not the disease.  Its main objective is to activate the body’s self-healing process. For this reason, even if two patients suffer from the same disease, they will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic treatment.

What are the benefits of homeopathic treatment?

Homeopathy is a natural remedy that provides various benefits to the body. In order not to consume conventional medicines, which can cause side effects, homeopathic treatment can be used. Like phytotherapy, homeopathy uses plants in the formulation of its remedies, but not only. It also uses the active ingredients contained in animal, mineral or chemical strains.

Homeopathic medicines are generally in the form of tablets, granules or drops. Homeopathy can be used to treat colds, lower fevers, relieve diarrhea, relieve fibromyalgia, treat dental pain, soothe premenstrual syndrome, fight eczema, soothe the pain of osteoarthritis, fight asthma and much more. We can also rely on homeopathic draining medicines to fight effectively and healthily against weight gain. Other granules also help to stir up the feeling of hunger.

The small homeopathic granules do not act only on the physical. They can also help to fight against stress, anxiety or depression. In fact, people suffering from severe insomnia will be able to recover a peaceful sleep by relying on a homeopathic dietary supplement. Good sleep is indeed essential to prevent fatigue and depression.

Of course, before starting any homeopathic treatment, it is always advisable to consult your doctor.  Self-medication is strongly discouraged.
