Homeopathy is a type of alternative medicine. The concept of homeopathic treatment consists of several principles, adherence to which is the key to success. In particular, homeopathy does not recognize the complex treatment of diseases.
Individual selection of the drug
The first is that like cures like. Homeopathy uses similar drugs to treat similar diseases. All products have been tested on healthy volunteers, not approved by clinical practice. The symptoms observed in them indicate diseases that can be overcome with the help of a specific drug. The disease always manifests itself in the form of a combination of symptoms, physical and psychological, remotely or directly related to the cause of the ailment.
It is believed that unilateral treatment can only worsen the condition and cause new symptoms. Therefore, homeopaths learn everything about a particular patient, including his state of mind, social and family relationships, and body constitution. They do not prescribe medicine based on the name of the disease alone. Hence another principle of homeopathic treatment follows: one remedy.
One drug for the whole complex of symptoms
In traditional medicine, it is customary to prescribe several drugs at once to overcome one disease, so that each of them fights a separate symptom. In homeopathy, however, such a complex treatment is not accepted. There should be one homeopathic preparation that affects the patient's overall condition. It is believed that the body's defenses are a single complex. Therefore, only one drug is required. Otherwise, too much vital energy will be spent on the body's response to each of the drugs taken. In addition, combined agents often contain components that are opposite in action.
Minimum effective dose
The third principle is the minimum dose and taking into account the potential strength of the drug. The size of the dose and its potential strength can worsen the condition, so care must be taken. Even if the drug is completely suitable for a particular complex of symptoms, a large dose will suppress the work of the vital energy of the body. The greater the action potential of the homeopathic remedy, the smaller the dose should be. That is why such funds are produced in the form of small grains. It is necessary to take such a minimum dose, which will be sufficient for positive changes. Sometimes such a dose may seem really paltry, but in fact it will have great potential. It is believed that patients suffer from homeopathy precisely when they are given an inadequate dosage.
