7 Unknown Reasons Why You Should Try Homeopathy Medicine

 

Do you suffer any health condition that’s hampering your quality of life? 

Are you looking for a complete cure with no side effects? Have all the other treatments failed you? 

No worries! Why not try homeopathy medicine?

Listen, I have an exciting life story to tell you.

One of my relatives had psoriasis for 17 years. He tried various treatments they gave some temporary relief but sadly didn’t cure it, and his psoriasis recurred.

Due to heavy medication for an extended period, his liver started to get affected. 

Not knowing what to do, he turned to homeopathy medicine. The doctor suggested some medications with a few dietary restrictions.

What a surprise!

Within a few days, his skin started showing signs of healing, and after a couple of months, it completely healed. Even the darker patches began to disappear, bringing back the skin color.

It was such a fantastic transformation that had a tremendously positive effect on his mental health and self-confidence, especially on his health after taking all those harsh medications for years together.

This life transformation made me ponder on homeopathy.   

To get a better understanding of this treatment, please give this post a careful read.

What is homeopathy 

Homeopathy is a holistic medical practice that believes that the body can cure itself. This form of medicine was first conceived in Germany’s late 1700s by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. He’s considered the father of homeopathy. 

Homeopaths use tiny amounts of natural substances of minerals and plants. They believe these natural substances help in the healing process.

The belief system of homeopathy treatment is “like treats like.” It means the cause that brings the symptoms to a healthy person in small amounts helps treat a disease with similar symptoms by triggering the body’s natural defenses.

For example, if too much coffee causes sleeplessness and agitation. According to the principle of “like treats like,” it could be made into homeopathic medicine and help treat insomnia and agitation. 

The ingredients are highly diluted by adding water or alcohol. Then the mixture is shaken as part of a process called potentization. 

Homeopathic remedies come in various forms, such as liquid drops, sugar pellets, tablets, gels, and creams. A homeopathy doctor usually prescribes medicines considering the patient’s specific set of symptoms, how they experience them, and their overall health.

The doctor will ask plenty of questions about your physical, emotional, and mental health. And they’ll prescribe the homeopathic remedy that best suits your symptoms and prescribe treatment tailor-made just for you.

Dr. Neetu specializes in treating psoriasis with astounding success. She points out, “homeopathy medicines remain very successful in treating psoriasis by moderating the overactive immune system. We can treat the patient as a whole and try to find a constitutional remedy to generally strengthen the patient. 

We strengthen the immune system, improve digestion and absorption. This action allows the body to get the necessary nutrients that are essential for life. We treat the disease at a deeper level so that the disease does not recur.”
