Benefits of Homeopathy

01. Universally Used
Homeopathy is the second most widely used form of medicine for primary care in the world today with over 500 million patients regularly attending clinics

02. Complete Medical System
Homeopathy has been formalised into a comprehensive health care system addressing all physical, mental and emotional conditions and capable of treating all ages from infant to old age.

03. Naturally Sourced
All Homeopathic remedies are derived from naturally occurring sources within the Animal, Plant and Mineral kingdoms. No chemicals, synthetics or co-product derivatives are used.

04. Natural in Action
The action of Homeopathy is to help the body heal itself by the stimulation of the powerful natural immune system. The restoration of balance is thus a natural process entirely in harmony with normal rhythms. The patients body, personal life and professional growth are all enhanced.

05. Natural Long Term Benefit
The residual benefit of a heightened immunology transfers into reduced susceptibility to future disease challenges.

06. Naturally Curative not Suppressive
The natural healing action of Homeopathy works towards a rapid gentle and permanent cure unlike conventional medicine which is palliative and suppressive in nature. Suppression may have an initial beneficial effect but the ultimate result will harbinger deeper long term ill consequences for the patient. (eg the suppression of childhood eczema which reappears later in life as asthma.)

07. Naturally Holistic in Approach
Homeopathy considers the total symptom picture of body, mind and emotions. Again this is in contradistinction to conventional medicine which is prescribed on the basis of local physical symptomology with scant attention to mind and emotion (ie you dont have different specialists for different body parts each prescribing independently.)

08. Individualised Treatment
Every prescription is evaluated on an individualised patient specific basis. The patient is not viewed as a collection of body parts and the prescription is not issued on a one remedy suits all basis.

09. Free of Side Effects
As a consequence of being chemically free Homeopathic remedies are totally free of all side effects.

10. Very Safe
As a result of Homeopathys unique remedy potentisation process complete safety from toxicity can be assured with no potential to inflict sustained damage.

11. Non Addictive
Furthermore potentisation ensures freedom from drug addiction.

12. Safe even when Conventional Medication
carries a Use Warning
Again Homeopathys potentisation process allows its use in situations where conventional medication caries a use warning (ie new born infants, puberty, menopause, pregnancy as well as those of old age and in cases of low disease resistance.)

13. Safe as a Complementary Remedy
May be used safely along side that of conventional drugs. Homeopathy is especially valuable in limiting the side effects of allopathic treatments and the ill effects of vaccinations.

14. Safe as an Integrative Remedy
Safe to use as part of a planned combined allopathic/ homeopathic treatment schedule.

15. Safe as a Stand Alone Remedy
With the cooperative consent and under the supervision of your GP it may be possible to gradually reduce or eliminate the necessity for conventional medication.

16. Particularly Safe & Beneficial for Children
Children are not as exposed to environmental factors that commonly lower anm adults response to Homeopathy. They therefore respond quicker to Homeopathic medicines and recover much faster notably in cases of asthma, allergies, skin disorders etc.

17. Safe for Urban Complaints 
Can be used safely without psychotic side effects for urban complaints such as stress, anxiety, mild depression, worries, pressure, hypertension etc

18. Safe to Use for Sporting Incidences
Homoeopathic treatment is tissue residue free and hence there is no possibility of a positive drug test. Because of this Homeopathy is the only permitted treatment for race horses in Canada.

19. Disease Preventive Role
Homeopathy is an important form of preventive medicine with specific programmes to combat specific illnesses (eg flu). Other than vaccination conventional medicine is singularly lacking in this area.


20-24. No Diagnosis Required
Homeopathy is based on the totality of symptoms not diagnosis. Thus treatment is possible even in situations where
- there is no specific diagnosis (eg IBS) 
- test have been returned clear but the patient continues to feel unwell
- diagnostic prognosis is considered hopeless - particularly in many chronic situations.
- there is no present conventional treatment (eg allergies, arthritis)
- diagnosis indicates that complaint is inherited or of genetic origin


25. Afforable Treatment
Homeopathic remedies are low cost when compared to conventional medications and additionally there is no requirement for time consuming and expensive diagnostic procedures.

26. Can Avoid the Necessity of Surgery
Some conditions commonly operated on which have been treated successfully with Homeopathy include Calculi, Corns, Cysts, Fibroids, Ganglion, Piles, Polyps, Tonsillitis, Warts,

27. Non Animal tested
Homeopathic remedies are tested on humans not animals.  


28. Pleasant to Take
Homeopathic remedies are usually based on sugar making them very easy to take. For to this reason, children and the elderly have no difficulty with Homeopathic treatment.


29. Unique Triple Benefit
Homeopathy saves you time, money and above all your health.

Homeopathy Criticised

 

Notwithstanding the comprehensive list of benefits Homeopathy still has critics!!

An example is provided in summary from an article

by Dr. Ben Goldacre entitled

Benefits & Risks of Homeopathy.

  •  Homeopathy is only placebo
  • Homeopathy undermines public health
  • Homeopathic pill prescription is an act of deception
  • Alternative medical publications are bias towards Homeopathy
  •  Homeopaths misrepresent scientific evidence
  • Homeopathy should not be banned because the placebo has a clinical role.
  • However are Homeopaths best suited for this role?
