Homeopathic Remedies are Much More than Placeboby Francine Kanter Classical Homeopathy by Francine Kanter
Homeopathy is one of the most popular forms of alternative medicine that is slowly being accepted by more and more people around the world. The term homeopathy comes from the Greek words “Hómoios” (ὅμοιος), and “Páthos” (πάθος), meaning “similar suffering.” Based on the doctrine called similia similibus curentur, or “like cures like,” homeopathy is a safe and gentle treatment method that stimulates the individual’s natural ability to self heal and minimize the intensity of their symptoms. There is no class of disease in which Homeopathy cannot be used. You can easily find a homeopathic remedy for constipation, allergies, UTI, eczema and vertigo, among other ailments.
Many people suffering from an illness have turned to homeopathy as a last resort when modern medicine failed to give them any relief. Be that as it may, some people still find homeopathy to be nothing more than some hype. And we don’t blame them. There is so much conflicting information about homeopathy that it can be hard to decide whether it really works or if it is just a placebo.
Keep in mind that most of the criticism for homeopathy comes from the allopathic medical industry. One could attribute this to their fear that people will take an active stand when it comes to their health and treat various ailments themselves. Though we don’t agree with the medical field’s stand on homeopathy, we will simply list two of their most common claims and counter those with facts to explain how and why homeopathy does indeed work.
Claim #1: There is no scientific research backing the effects of homeopathy.
The claim that there is no scientific research that proves homeopathic remedies have any effect on people is one of the most common false and unscientific premises. There is empirical evidence that demonstrates that homeopathic remedies do work.
There are many double-blind studies on homeopathic remedies. One of these is where 500 adults with classical influenza were divided in half, with one group receiving the homeopathic remedy Oscillococcinum and the other placebo. Neither the participants nor the experimenters knew which group was receiving a homeopathic remedy. This was done to prevent bias in research results. After taking the remedy, participants recorded an absence of fever* or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue (tiredness). Proof that homeopathy does indeed work!
Claim #2: Homeopathy is not safe.
This one is just wrong. Homeopathy is always safer than prescription medicines. Homeopathy is surrounded by a ton of controversies, but it keeps emerging victorious as more and more people have started using homeopathy to manage their ailments. One of the reasons why an increasing number of people are turning to homeopathy is the fact that natural homeopathic remedies offer similar benefits to modern medicine, but without any side effects. For someone who needs to take prescription medicines daily, the side effects can make it hard to incorporate it into their daily routine. That is not the case with homeopathic remedies that may be made from plants such as onion or oregano, from minerals such as gold, carbon, or sodium chloride; from animals such as cod liver oil, honey bee, or the ink of the cuttlefish.
If you are interested in trying the wonders of homeopathy for your ailment, ask yourself, “where can I find a homeopathic doctor near me?” Homeopathic remedies address the root cause of the problem and can also be safely used alongside conventional medicine. The homeopathic remedies are gentle, non-addictive, and safe, even for pregnant women, elderly, and ladies.
