Frequently asked questions about Homeopathy

Is homeopathy slow in acting?

No, certainly not.

Homeopathy is not at all slow in acting as is a general belief because it works very well in acute cases too. In our experience we have seen several acute cases like diarrhoea, vomiting, urticaria, tonsillitis, conjunctivitis, migraine etc. quickly and favorably responding to homeopathic treatment.

Do all patients get the same globules and are the same pills given for any illness?

Absolutely incorrect.

To an onlooker, all the pills seem similar in appearance and hence it is explicable why this doubt arises in the minds of many. But we would like to inform you that there are over 3500 remedies in the homeopathic pharmacopoeia that already exist. Not only that, there are newer medicines that are added to the list on a regular basis after a thorough proving and clinical trials. The homoeopathic medicines are available in homeopathic pharmacies as liquids prepared with an alcohol base. When we dispense the medicine to our patients, we need to pour the indicated medicinal liquid over the white sugar globules. These pills act simply as a vehicle and do the job of transferring the medicinal property from the liquid to the patient. Once a few drops of liquid are poured, these pills immediately absorb it. Hence it appears that the same white pills are administered to all.

Does one always have to discontinue allopathic medication while taking homeopathic treatment?

No, not as a rule.

If a person is taking some allopathic medicines for a very long time, than it is not advisable to discontinue them abruptly. We put the patient under homeopathic treatment and when the improvement starts the other medicines are gradually withdrawn. For e.g. Patients who come with high blood pressure and already taking anti-hypertensives are usually given homeopathic medicines along with it. After careful monitoring of the blood pressure the tablets are withdrawn and only when the blood pressure is totally stabilized the anti-hypertensives are discontinued.

Why does a homeopath take such a long and detailed history?

Because, it is a must

We believe that disease is a crystallization of everything that is happening and has happened in a person's life. At times the cause of a recent ailment can be traced to a remote incident in the past or even in the childhood. So in order to cure a person it is important to know the minutest detail about him, starting from his birth till the present date. Hence if one has to travel through a person's entire life it certainly would take that much of time.

How long does one need to take homeopathic treatment?

There is no fixed time for the duration of treatment.

It depends on the type of illness and the period since it exists. Usually chronic and long-standing cases like hypertension, asthma, diabetes etc. need treatment for longer duration as compared to diseases, which exist since a short time. The period of treatment also varies according to every individual as different people respond to homeopathic treatment in a dissimilar way.

Do homeopaths find the need to resort to surgery in any condition?

Definitely. Yes, it does.

Surgery is an essential branch of science and proves incredibly useful in conditions that are beyond the domain of medicine. E.g. a compound fracture, a foreign particle in the body, a wide gaping wound etc. are few conditions in which we as Homeopaths need the surgeon's help. But there are many other so called surgical conditions like, tonsillitis, piles, warts, kidney stones etc. where our medicines can do wonders and a surgery can be avoided.

Are there any diet restrictions that need to be followed when one is taking homeopathic medicines?

Certainly not.

There are no diet restrictions to be observed when one is under homeopathic medication. Diet restrictions are only to be followed for the particular ailment that one is suffering from and not for the treatment. E.g. if the patient is a diabetic, he should curtail his intake of excessive sugar or in a person with chronic renal failure, a low protein diet is advised etc. Camphorated food items are avoidable as camphor antidotes the effect of many homeopathic remedies.

Do Homeopathic medicines have side effects?

Certainly not.

There are absolutely no side effects of homeopathic medicines. In fact they are very safe. Homeopathic medicines are prepared by a special method called potentisation where the medicinal substance is subjected to serial dilutions which eventually contains no material substance in it. What is left is pure form of energy. Hence there is no question of side effects.

Can homeopathy treat dyslexia?

Yes, why not !

There are many medicines in Homeopathy that can help dyslexia. After understanding the child's learning disability, mental state, life situation, trigger factors etc. a constitutional medicine is chosen which has a very positive effect.
