Homeopathic treatments are a far cry from how you are treated by almost every other health care modality. For a start there are various different ways it can be used. But, more importantly, its effect can be life changing as the treatment can go deeper and unravel past problems, like no other form of treatment.
Of course, this is dependent on the skill of the prescriber, just as in any other health care system.
Let’s first examine how mainstream medicine works. In a nutshell, this system of health care is based on pathological treatment. In other words, only the problem is considered, and in a rather mechanical way. Often, especially in chronic conditions, no thought is given to the cause of the problem.
So the treatment is limited to therapeutic treatment. Drugs are used to suppress the symptom, which is in direct opposition to what the body is trying to do. This often gives rise to side effects. Troublesome parts are removed.
It can be fairly drastic treatment. Mistakes are not uncommon, which can result in death from the wrong medicine or procedure or having the wrong part removed.
It is possible for homeopathic treatments to be focused on health care in this way. However, the difference is that they are not suppressive. Instead they are supportive of what the body is trying to achieve.
And if the right choice of remedy is not made, nothing happens.
This therapeutic form of homeopathy is the way home prescribers work. And it can also be used by skilled practitioners for straightforward problems or to start off treatment of a complex situation.
However, the potential homeopathic treatments have in the hands of a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner are far deeper. For example:
- a familial trait can be rectified
- emotional scars, such as grief or shock, can be effectively treated
- mental problems such as depression, anxiety or loss of memory can be sent on their way
- old physical injuries or traumas can be cured
- ‘incurable’ diseases are eminently curable
More consideration is given to the cause of the problem, rather than its effect.
Homeopathic treatments can be so far reaching because they consider you as a whole rather than the isolated part of you that is currently giving you trouble. Your past experiences, your environment, your present coping methods all make up you as a unique individual.
You are more than a collection of physical parts. You are an energy being. In other words, you don’t work mechanically. So your medicine should be based on energy concepts. Which is exactly what homeopathy is.
Although results can be rapid, especially in acute situations, more commonly especially in chronic conditions, homeopathic treatments are a journey – they can take time. However, that is not to say that you don’t experience steady improvement along the way.
And there will come a time when you no longer need the treatment and you remain well.
