FAQ's

1. What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy, a therapeutic system used for over 250 years, works on the principle that ‘like cures like’ — an illness is treated with a substance which could produce similar symptoms in a healthy person. However, homeopathic medicines are given in highly diluted forms and are therefore extremely safe and have no side-effects.
Homeopathy is a holistic system of treatment. It aims to treat the whole person, rather than just the physical symptoms.

2. How do Homeopathic remedies work?
Many symptoms we experience are the results of one underlying problem. For example, pain, swelling and redness could be the result of an infection or some irritation. Unlike other systems which interfere with body’s ability to heal itself. Homeopathy stimulates the body’s own healing power. For examples, pain killers stop the transmission of pain signals to the brain without addressing the cause of the pain. Cough suppressants stop expulsion of phlegm (but this gradually gets accumulated in the lungs making people more prone to develop bacterial infections). Homeopathic remedies ensure completely cure by treating the underlying problems and not just the side effects

3. How must time do Homeopathic remedies take to act?
Homeopathic remedies start working immediately after they are taken. Headache relief is guaranteed within a few minutes while it takes some time for people to recovery from more complex and complicated medical problems. Acute problems like cold and fever can be treated in a few days while chronic conditions like asthma, arthritis, diabetes, etc need a complete reversal of certain pathological conditions and these take a loner time. Arthritic patients get tremendous relief within a couple of weeks.

4. What are the sources of Homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are made from vegetables, minerals, chemicals and animal products and nosodes.

  • Vegetables: Allium cepa (onion), Asparagus
  • Animal Products: Lac Cal, Spongia
  • Minerals: Natrum mur (common salt), Ferrum met (iron), Kali sulph
  • Chemicals: Ars alb, Calcaria carb
  • Nosodes: Syphilinum, Medorrhinum

5. Why should Homeopathy be your first choice?
Homeopathy acts quickly without producing any side effects. The homeopathic system is proven to be very effective in both acute and chronic conditions. It treats the problem at the ground level and establishes harmony in health. Besides healing the person, it improves the general resistance and helps people avoid the hassle of frequent visits to physicians for different problems. Homeopathic pills are sweet and they do not taste like medicine. They also offer long lasting health.

6. What is Health?
According to the WHO (World Health Organization), health is a state of complete physical, mental or social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. While treating the patient, homeopaths consider the state of mind as well as social wellbeing. Different people have different moods and temperaments which results in a different psychological, physiological and immunological blueprint. For example, conditions like thyrotoxicosis (the excessive production of thyroxine hormone by a hyperactivity thyroid gland), people exhibit irritability and anxiety, rapid heart action, loss of weight, exophthalmia and nervous tremors. As each hormone takes care of many functions by regulating many organ systems, classic homeopaths take the totality of these symptoms into consideration, so the person is completely cured and not merely treated.

7. Why Homeopathy is the best solution for psychosomatic problems?
There are disorders that have a physiological manifestation, but originate due to an emotional state of an individual. Termed as psychosomatic (Psyche means mind, Soma means body), these are physiological disorders and refer to a large number of organ disorders innervated by the autonomic nervous system in which emotional factors are dominant
The nervous system regulates and coordinates the body’s activities and triggers proper responses to adjust to changes in either external environment or the internal environment. The autonomic nervous system which controls body functions is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic system. Conditions like anxiety and fear stimulate the sympathetic nerve fibers and produce vasoconstriction resulting in an overall rise in the blood pressure, acceleration of the heart rate and disturbance in the gastrointestinal activity. Some effects of parasympathetic stimulations are constriction of bronchioles in asthma, contraction of smooth muscles of the alimentary canal (causing gripping pain in the stomach), slowing of the heart rate and increased secretions of the salivary and gastric glands. Repeated episodes of these conditions produce organ disorders. However, all these symptoms along with mental anxiety and physical problems can be treated smoothly without any associated side effects. Homeopathy remedies act by bringing the mind and the body together to eradicate the problem as a whole
Examples of psychosomatic disorders: Migraine, asthma, acidity, peptic ulcer, allergy. Most of the time, some of the following mental conditions mentioned below cause these disorders: excessive anxiety, irritability, insecurity, obsessive traits, undue jealousy, suspicion, paranoia, depression, neurosis, etc.

8. Are there any antibiotics in Homeopathy?
The term ‘biotic’ (living) in science deals with the functions of life. Antibiotic is an agent that destroys life. Bacteria affect only a few, though lots of people get exposed to them. These antibodies are proteins that are naturally produced by the body in response to a disease-causing agent or a foreign substance called an antigen. So, our body develops a suitable antibody to each bacterium, virus and other allergens. A weak immune system causes problems and Homeopathic remedies eliminate the need of antibiotics by strengthening the immunity system. Homeopathic remedies work effectively to alleviate the symptoms of the following conditions to ensure rapid recovery without side effects. These problems include sinusitis, tonsillitis, urinary infection, ear infection, bronchitis, meningitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gastro-enteritis (vomiting-diarrhea), dysentery, etc. Homeopaths give each individual a selected remedy to treat the problem. This is the reason why there is no single homeopathic remedy that has gone out of practice in the last two hundred years.

9. Why homeopathic medicines are slow acting?
Homeopathy is NOT slow acting. This myth is popular, because most of the people approaching homoeopathy have a long history of chronic ailments, and hence the treatment takes time. Since homeopathy offers a much better alternative than allopathy in such ailments, it is believed that homeopathy is slow acting. Homeopathy is, in fact, FAST and RAPID in Action in acute conditions.

10. Does Homeopathy work for viral infections?
Homeopathy is a good option for viral problems because it strengthens the immune system. These remedies give immense relief from the symptoms of common cold, flu, measles, chickenpox, viral hepatitis (jaundice), viral meningitis, etc.

11. Is there any cure for allergic conditions?
An allergy is an acquired hyper sensitivity to a substance (allergen) that does not normally cause a reaction. It is essentially a disorder of the immune system that results in an antibody-antigen reaction. But in some cases, there may be a genetic predisposition to a particular allergy where the antibody cannot be traced. They may also develop over a period of time. Homeopathy addresses the multiple symptoms of an allergic reaction using a single remedy. Allergic conditions include:

  • Eczema, allergic rhinitis or coryza, hay fever, bronchial asthma
  • Symptoms like eosinophilia, nasal congestion, tearing, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, itching rash, eruptions
  • Etiology: pollen, dust, hair, fur, feathers, scabies, wool, chemicals, drugs, insect bites and specific foods such as eggs, chocolate, milk, wheat, tomatoes, citrus fruits, oat-meal, potatoes.
  • The 20th century syndrome: People develop allergic symptoms to everything in the environment. This is most probably due to either acute or chronic emotional stress.
  • Allergic conditions could be genetic or might have been developed later on due to a specific cause

12. Do homoeopathic medicines have any side effects?
No, homeopathic medicines do not have any side effects, as they are administered in minute doses and do not have a chemical or mechanical effect on the body.
The term ‘side effects’ of a medicine comes from modern pharmaceuticals. These drugs are aimed at one area of the body such as the cardiovascular system, the gut, the kidneys, etc. Though they have a primary area of action, they also affect other areas of the body. If these other affects are undesirable, they are known as adverse side effects. Streptomycin, an excellent antibiotic, has been known to cause deafness. The deafness is an adverse side effect.
Homeopathic remedies are not employed against one particular area or organ of the body. The homeopathic remedy is chosen because it matches as closely as possible the totality of symptoms of the patient. Side effects, such as tissue destruction, do not occur under homeopathy.

12. Is homeopathy safe for children and pregnant females?
Yes, homeopathy is totally safe for children. It can also be safely administered to pregnant females.
