Homeopathy’s Role in the History of Epidemics

Samuel Hahnemann was a German physician who is well known for developing the branch of medicinal treatment called homeopathy. This branch of medicine has been used since his time in the treatment of epidemics. One of the first instances where homeopathy was used to treat an epidemic was when Hahnemann used Belladonna to treat scarlet fever. Since then, there have been many references to the usefulness of homeopathy in managing epidemics all over the world.

Dr. Andre Saine, a homeopathic expert has done detailed research on the subject and has made some startling discoveries.

Low Mortality Rate

He found that over centuries, many physicians have turned to homeopathy for treatment during epidemics and have kept detailed notes of their treatment pattern. Irrespective of the type of epidemic, who the physician was or where it was done, there is proof of a low mortality rate among the patients who have received homeopathic treatment. 

Homeopathy’s Role in the History of Epidemics

Increased Immunity

There are many illnesses in the world that do not have a vaccine and cannot be prevented. The only way to avoid contracting the illness is by building up a healthy immune system that is strong enough to battle the incursion of the virus. Homeopathy bolsters the immune system and this helps in protecting a person from falling sick in the first place. 

Less Chance of Reinfection or Relapse

Very often, conventional medications that are used to treat illnesses weaken the body and increase the risk of the patient falling ill again, either with the same illness or a related illness. For example, a virus that attacks the respiratory system and weakens it can make a person susceptible to other respiratory infections like pneumonia. This is a great concern during epidemics. Homeopathic medicines, on the other hand, are given in such diluted doses that they do not have side effects and offer long term immunity that prevent relapses.

Based on these findings, homeopathic treatments are becoming more popular as a way to help deal with epidemics.

Homeopathy Can Set You on the Path to Holistic Wellness

Path to Holistic Wellness with Homeopathy

“Holistic” is an oft heard word around the world, especially in relationship to health, habits and lifestyle. What does the word mean? Holistic was coined in the 1920s as a philosophical term and is derived from the Greek word “holos” which means whole. In connection to health and lifestyle, holistic wellness is often described as a combination of a nutritious diet with an active and stress-free life. But there is much more to holistic wellness

Homeopathy Can Set You on the Path to Holistic Wellness

What Does Holistic Wellness Mean?

Holistic wellness refers to the wellness of the body in every way; this means taking the different components that make up a being and focusing on each part separately and as a whole.

How Does One Do That?

A human being is a sum of many parts. There is the physical part which consists of the body, including the organs, bones, muscles, tissues, etc. There is the mental part which addresses stress, anxiety, depression, happiness, anger, etc. And there is also a spiritual and emotional component that acts as the balance.

Conventional medicine treats maladies of the physical part. The mental and emotional components are not addressed. Very often, the underlying cause of a physical ailment is a mental or emotional stressor. When an illness is treated holistically, all the components are addressed, aiding in recovery.

Homeopathy and Holistic Wellness

A homeopathic practitioner always treats any illness holistically. The primary objective is to help their patients take control of their well-being. Holistic homeopathic treatments can include:

  • Homeopathic medicine
  • Alternative therapies
  • Counseling
  • Psychotherapy
  • Herbal and natural medicines
  • Meditation and yoga

Benefits of Homeopathic Holistic Treatment
Homeopathic treatment rids the body of illness without causing lasting damage or major side effects. Homeopathic treatments ensure that all the treatments are natural, or if ingested, are in such a dilute form so as to not have any side effects. In the long run, this helps improve immunity and physical well-being to such an extent that the body gets the necessary succor to fight the illness and recover in a holistic way.

Holistic Approach to Raising Immunity!

Boost Your Immune System in a Holistic Way

How Does Our Immune System Work?

Our body has a set of protocols that it follows if it is threatened. If our body is attacked by a virus, our immune system produces antigens to attack the virus and get rid of it. It further triggers the lymphocytes to create antibodies to protect us. It is a marvellous system that helps keep us safe from disease.

Holistic Approach to Raising Immunity!

The Two-Pronged Holistic Approach

There are two ways by which a viral illness can be managed. One way, is to treat the symptoms and bring relief to the patient. The other way, is to boost the immune system and ensure that the person’s inherent defence mechanism helps keep the disease at bay. This is a holistic way of treating an illness.

Conventional medicine only treats the symptoms; it does not boost the immune system. That is one reason why people get relapses and fall sick often. They do not build immunity to that virus and fall ill when the virus attacks again. In contrast, homeopathy slowly and gradually builds up the immune system while relieving symptoms.

Homeopathy and the Immune System

Homeopathic medicine has been popular in Europe and America from around the 17th century because of its success in treating people suffering from often fatal illnesses like cholera, typhoid, yellow fever and scarlet fever.

Homeopathic medication is given in small and safe doses and is individualized to the patient and the illness. It stimulates the immune system to work harder, thereby making it stronger. Homeopathic medication consists of a very small amount of the active ingredient and is given in a diluted form which ensures that even prolonged use does not trigger any side effect.

In today’s reality and given the current situation in the world, building up immunity would seem to be the holistic way to move forward.

Brought to a halt by the common cold?

The Common Cold: Homeopathic Solutions

Beaten by the Common Cold?

The world has progressed in leaps and bounds but everything comes to a standstill in the face of the common cold. The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract.

Symptoms of the Common Cold

Symptoms usually appear from a couple of days to a week after getting infected. It could include:-
  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Sneezing
  • Blocked nose
  • Thick phlegm
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Body ache
  • Fatigue

Brought to a halt by the common cold?

Who Is at Risk for a Common Cold?

Age is a factor when it comes to the common cold. Children are most at risk as they have weaker immune systems. The elderly, for similar reasons are also more at risk. People who have underlying health issues may also be susceptible. But, anyone can get a cold at any time if their immune system is weak or compromised.

Homeopathy Is a Better Option for Chronic Cold

There are no vaccines against the common cold nor is there a treatment to prevent it. Usually, as with any viral infection, you will be given medication for only the symptoms. If this is a rare occurrence, consuming those medications may not be a problem. But if it occurs often as with children or people with weak immune systems, homeopathy is a wiser choice as homeopathic medications that are given for symptoms of cold can be taken without fear of side effects over long periods. This is because homeopathic medications use a very small and diluted amount of the active ingredient that treats the illness.

Homeopathic Medication Offers Long Term Relief

The goal of homeopathy is holistic wellness, and therefore, the medications that are given may take some time to offer relief but the solution will be long lasting. Usually a combination of medicines is prescribed to treat the symptoms of the cold and to build immunity against future infections.

Say Goodbye to Chronic Digestive Problems!

Digestive Problems: How Can Homeopathy Help?

What Does the Digestive System Do?

The digestive system consists of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract), the liver, the pancreas, and the gallbladder. The GI tract includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and anus. It performs a very important function in our body by helping in the absorption of nutrients and expulsion of waste products. A problem in any part of the system can wreak havoc in everyday life and can give rise to chronic or serious medical conditions.

What Does the Digestive System Do

What Causes Digestive Problems?

There are various reasons why a person may have digestive problems.  Digestive problems can be caused by:-
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) – This causes acidity and acid reflux which causes a burning pain in the chest.
  • Gallstones – They block the ducts that connect the gallbladder to the intestines and cause sharp pain in the upper abdomen.
  • Celiac Disease – This is due to the sensitivity to gluten and can cause pain, vomiting, constipation, etc.
  • Crohn’s Disease – This is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, etc.
  • Ulcers – These can occur anywhere along the GI tract and can be caused by stress and unhealthy food habits.
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome – This sensitive condition can cause constant discomfort, pain, diarrhea and bloating.
  • Hemorrhoids – These are caused by inflamed blood vessels at the end of the digestive tract.

How Homeopathy Can Help

Most digestive problems are chronic. There could be a myriad of underlying reasons that trigger these digestive problems. They can include:
  • Bad eating habits
  • Stress
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Other medical conditions
  • Medication
  • Smoking
  • Alcoholism

Since chronic digestive problems need a long term treatment plan, homeopathy is the ideal solution as it addresses all the underlying issues and is designed to treat the whole person. The other benefit is that homeopathic medicines have no harmful side effects as they use a very small and diluted amount of the active ingredient that treats the illness.
