Is Homeopathy Slower in Action?

A sizable section of the population thinks that homeopathy is slow in action. This opinion is the result of either lack of information and understanding or based on anti-homeopathy propaganda which has been going on for more than two decades. In fact it is just the opposite. Much can be written on this topic but I am keeping this article very brief because majority does not like to read long articles. The idea is to highlight that homeopathy is not slow. The cure time depends on nature of the case in addition of several other factors.

Practically, homeopathic medicines are NOT slower in action. The tendency is to go for homeopathic treatment only after the traditional system becomes helpless. In chronic cases, the treatment through traditional system goes on for years and years with no cure but none calls it slower. When after having been disappointed with allopathic treatment, people resort to homeopathic treatment, the case is already complicated with cause(s) of the ailment deeply dug in. In such cases, expecting quick cure and calling homeopathic system slower is not fair.

The fact is that in higher potencies homeopathic medicines often begin their action immediately giving visible results in minutes. However, while evaluating, you must keep nature of the case in mind. In case of alopecia (falling of hair) for example, no medicine on God's earth will stop the hair from falling overnight. Similarly if you treat someone for chronic arthritis, would it be reasonable (even sensible) to expect the cure overnight? There are instances where the pains can be relieved in minutes. For example, the pain of angina pectoris can be easily alleviated in less then 10 minutes. In certain cases of abdominal pain, I have practically got the results in just about 5 to 10 minutes. What else? How quicker should homeopathy be than this? There are countless other instances where homeopathy works faster than any other system that uses medicines in physical form. If the medicine, its dose and potency have been correctly selected, the results are reasonably fast, depending on the nature of the case of course, as written earlier. So, the impression that homeopathy works slower is only false and unjustified.

Improving Rate of Cure

Some physicians have better cure rate than the others. It is so in nearly all the healing systems but why? One simple answer is that one is more skilled than the other. Fine, skill of the doctor definitely matters but is it the only factor? Factually there are several other factors too. One of those is the intention of both patient and the physician. What both feel matters a lot. Very briefly, it can be summarized as under.

The Patient:
  • If the patient is complaining type, always unhappy and dissatisfied with nearly everything, he does not mentally send positive messages to the universe. His inadvertent negativity becomes a hurdle in the way of cure.
  • Another person who feels that he is very sick and that he might not get cured, might actually no get cured because he is continuously asking the universe that he is incurable.
The Physician:
  • Undoubtedly, there are some (not all) physicians who consider the patient nothing more than a money machine. Their intention is to prolong the case as much as possible and squeeze patient's pocket as much as possible without becoming doubtful. Apart from being unethical, this attitude acts as a block between the patient and his cure. Such physicians do not understand that if the cure is delayed, the patient is likely to move over to some other physician.
  • They also don't realize that after all how much can they get from one patient. Would it not be better to work with sincerity for the patient and do the best so that the patient gets cured and starts referring others as well? Would it not only increase their income but also enhance their cure rate and add to their reputation? Surely it will.
  • Other than the psychologists, majority of the doctors seldom studies the thought pattern of their patients and advise them to change of necessary.

Having positive intentions and using mind power correctly does not cost anything. It only needs a change in the way of thinking. If done, rate of cure will surely improve and the results will certainly be positive both in favor of the patient as well as the doctor.

How to Receive Homeopathic Treatment

On first look heading of this article might sound quite silly but as you read, you would exactly know how to receive homeopathic treatment. So please read on.

It is quite simple to go to a homeopath and tell him/her you problem (even name of the disease if you know). This is fine for a traditional medical practitioner but it might be grossly inadequate for a homeopath. He/She needs to know a lot more about your symptoms, eating habits, cravings of and aversion to certain food items, the time (and weather) of the day or sitting/lying posture when your complaint increases or decreases and a host of other questions. All these factors are called modalities. Briefly, a homeopath needs your complete picture.

These details are required because there is not just one homeopathic medicine for a particular symptom. Every homeopathic medicine is different to the other and covers a wide range of symptoms though but the set of symptoms covered by every medicine is different. Some symptoms covered by two or more medicines might be common but not all of those. If you look up any Materia Medica, you would understand what I am try to say. Therefore, a homeopath needs all the details to be able to reach most suitable medicine according to your symptoms.

At times the patients do not tell certain symptoms thinking that those might be irrelevant but factually no symptom is irrelevant. In certain cases even the dreams are relevant. So, when you go to a homeopath, tell everything and answer all questions as correctly and precisely as possible. DO NOT hide anything. This way you will help your self by enabling the homeopath to work out most suitable treatment plan. You may also like to read another article on this topic.

What is Homeopathy

Homeopathy is based on law of similars and is very close to nature. It is a powerful healing system that has stood the test of time and has the ability to treat both acute and chronic diseases. It can successfully treat many such diseases that have no cure in traditional medical system.

Homeopathy works by stimulating and improving body’s own immune system and does not suppress the symptoms. The system is especially useful in treating those ailments that have no known cause. It sound strange to those who do not know much about homeopathy but those who understand its philosophy depend on it more than other healing systems.
