What is Homeopathy and how does it work?

Homeopathy is a system of medicines that believes that the body can cure itself by using highly diluted natural substances. The medicinal system does not in any way induce any sort of side effects on the body. Many practitioners believe that using natural substances like small amounts of plants and minerals stimulates the healing process. You can contact any Homeopathic Doctor In Ludhiana to treat your body with natural remedies. 


How does Homeopathy work?

The treatment of homeopathy works on a basic principle that is “like cure like”, which explains that a substance that is responsible for causing certain symptoms can also contribute as being a cure for an illness with symptoms similar to it. Homeopathy uses the concept or process of diluting a substance by adding alcohol or distilled water to it and shaking it vigorously to transfer its healing essence. People who practise homeopathy believe that the lighter the dose of the medicine is, the stronger and more effective it is going to be on the body. Light doses of medicines are used to trigger the defence system of the body against the illness so that the body can cure itself. Many substances are diluted so much that at the end of the process, there is little or no substance left. 


What is the difference between Ayurveda and Homeopathy?

Ayurveda is translated as “The science of life” or the “knowledge of life” that believes that any illness or problem in the body occurs due to an imbalance in our body, mind and soul, or you may call it our consciousness. It works on the concept of “Prevention is better than cure”. Ayurveda aims at achieving harmony or balance within our body. The process of achieving balance is truly personalised based on the inner self of an individual as it differs from person to person. Ayurveda uses various herbs, plants and spices for a naturally created remedy that brings balance to one’s body, mind, and soul in contrast to the environment. It begins its process by purifying the body from inside using natural remedies to build resistance against diseases, reduce stress and worry and bring harmony to the body by balancing the energies inside us that are solely responsible for the working of our body.


Homeopathy, on the other side, also uses natural remedies to cure an illness or disease. It works on strengthening the immune system by exposing it to the substance that is causing certain symptoms to trigger the defence mechanism of our immune system against it. It helps the body to create an immune memory against a virus or bacteria to avoid its attacks in the future. The body might get affected by the bacteria but will easily be able to fight through it due to the immune memory. The concept of a lighter or minimum dose where the substance is highly diluted is used to expose the body to the bacteria in order to build up the immunity power. 


Types of conditions treated with homeopathy

Homeopathy provides treatments for a wide range of conditions that are: 

  • Asthma
  • Migraine
  • Ear infections
  • Psychological conditions like depression, anxiety and stress
  • Food allergies
  • Dermatitis or skin allergies
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • High blood pressure
  • Arthritis

Even though homeopathy works on natural remedies, there is no firm evidence that may prove that the treatment of these health conditions with the help of homeopathy is effective. Some people believe that the process of homeopathy is no different than the placebo effect, while some people really find homeopathic treatments to be actually effective. You can find a Homeopathic Doctor In Mumbai if you wish not to be treated with allopathy.

  1. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
