Homeopathy Remedy

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that treats illnesses or relieves discomfort in a non-toxic manner. It is widely practiced throughout the world, and works on two main laws: the law of similars and the law of potentization. Like many forms of alternative medicine, homeopathy allows for self-practice if the illness or ailment is not serious or terminal. Homeopathy remedies can be self-practiced for common everyday ailments.

The law of similars in homeopathy believes that a certain set of symptoms, for example sneezing or the sniffles, can be cured by a substance that causes similar symptoms, but prepared for a homeopathy remedy. Using the example, a cure for sneezing and sniffles may be found in a type of pepper, correctly prepared as a homeopathic remedy so it can clear the sinuses. Because pepper can cause sneezing and sniffles, preparing a remedy that from this substance to stimulate the body’s curative powers, can cure your current sneezing and sniffles problem.

Potentization, on the other hand is a homeopathic method that uses dilution and succussion, or a vigorous shaking action. Many various substances can be made into remedies by diluting and succussing the substance. Because so many dilutions and succussions are done, the removal of any possible chemicals or toxic substances is assured. Through the process of potentization, many substances, even those that are not normally used can now be used for cures.

Both the law of similars and the law of potentization are homeopathic remedies that can be practiced at home, for as long as careful instructions for the remedies are followed. However, the remedy chosen must match both the symptoms you are experiencing and your body’s system of dealing with illness. Different people can react to the same homeopathic remedy differently. When practicing homeopathy in your home, you will need a lot of patience and a good amount of trial and error.

If a more serious illness is being dealt with, homeopathy can be administered by a licensed practitioner. Many times, licensed homeopathy practitioners are also Western doctors. This means they can use Western practices to diagnose the problem, and homeopathic practices to cure the problem at it’s ultimate source. Also, serious illnesses have to be carefully monitored, so that doses of the homeopathic remedies can be adjusted as needed.

Whether you are a self-practitioner or if you go to a professional homeopathy practitioner, the fact that the remedies are safe and non-toxic are the most important facets of this form of alternative medicine. When used correctly, many of the common ailments experienced by people, as well as some very serious illnesses and diseases can be treated and cured in the most natural way.
