Does Homeopathy Help in Weight Loss?

Getting rid of excess body fat and reducing weight is one of the top health and fitness concerns of Americans. Over the years, billions of dollars have been spent on fad diets, “miracle” weight-loss drugs and food supplements. Some diets may help in losing weight, but in the end, it is sensible eating and exercise that is the basis of weight control. As for the drugs and supplements, they have been proven to be either fakes or simply ineffective. Some of them are even dangerous and cause serious health complications.

There are no medicines or supplements, in any form of medicine, that will result in the shedding of unwanted weight with no other action being required from the individual. That being said, there are some homeopathic medications that can assist in the process and help speed up the process so that visible results appear faster.

Why Homeopathy?

There is a great deal of negative publicity and misinformation about homeopathy. This is the result of efforts by vested interests who want, for various reasons, to steer people away from this form of medicine and force them to remain with traditional medical systems. The fact is that homeopathy has been around for centuries and has proven itself, across the globe, to be a highly effective, quick-acting and safe form of medicine to treat all human ailments. Homeopathy works by using naturally occurring substances, not strong drugs created in laboratories, to increase the body’s efforts to heal itself when affected by illness or disease. This makes it completely safe and side effect free. This is how homeopathy helps in weight loss. The medications are not, to use popular parlance, “fat dissolving” in nature. Instead, they work by enabling the metabolism to burn more fat in a natural manner.

Medications That Help in Weight Loss
  • Calcarea Carbonica: This is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines for weight loss. It is often prescribed in cases where the excess fat is concentrated around the abdomen due to a slow metabolic rate.
  • Natrum Mur: This medication is often given to those who have gained weight, especially on the thighs and buttocks, due to depression, stress or other lifestyle issues.
  • Lycopodium: As in the case of Natrum Mur, this is often given to those with excess fat on the thighs and buttocks. The difference is that the excess weight is caused by gastric problems like constipation or flatulence.
  • Nux Vomica: This is often prescribed for those whose weight gain is associated with sedentary habits.
  • Antimonium Crudum: This is given to children who have excess fat to the point of being obese because it supplements the developing metabolism of a child.
Homeopathy does not offer a silver bullet to get rid of unwanted weight and fat. What it does is offer a safe and effective way of supplementing the body’s own efforts and actions to increase the amount and rate of weight and fat loss. Because homeopathy works by assisting the body’s weight loss efforts and every person’s metabolism is different, it is important to use medicines that are right for each individual.To know more about homeopathy and weight loss, consult a homeopathic doctor who will be able to prescribe medication that will be most effective for you.

Homeopathy for Seniors

Advances in healthcare mean that we are now not only healthier than ever before but are also living longer. Retirement is no longer the time to slow down and take it easy. Instead, these are now the years when people are able to stay active and indulge in the activities and interests that they could not pursue during their professional years. While people are now active and energetic well into their senior years, the fact remains that they are no longer as young as they used to be and as a result, they need to take steps to maintain their health so that they are able to continue enjoying life to the fullest. Unfortunately, today this often means having a medicine cabinet full of various types of medications to be taken either to prevent the onset of medical problems or to suppress the symptoms if they should arise.

The Problem with Traditional Medication

Traditional medicine continues to make great advances and is effective in dealing with certain medical problems. However, it is not the only solution to medical issues nor is it the only path to good health. In fact, the over-dependence on traditional medication is one of the major reasons for health concerns, especially among seniors. Traditional medicine relies on the use of drugs and chemicals created in laboratories to deal with sickness and promote recovery. The problem is that using these artificial substances suppresses the body’s own inherent ability to fight diseases and stay healthy. This results in a cycle where medication suppresses the body’s own defenses which in turn makes the body weaker and as a result stronger medication is required as time passes. In time, the need to take medication simply to remain active becomes a part of life. While on the surface, the problem may not appear to be very serious, the reality is that this means that the body which is aging, loses its ability to stay healthy in a natural manner. There is also the psychological factor – when a person needs strong medication just to stay “healthy”, he will never have the confidence in his health and will remain mentally dependent on the medication.

The Healthier and Safer Option

An increasing number of Americans of all ages are today turning to homeopathy to stay healthy. Homeopathy uses only naturally occurring substances to support the body’s own ability to fight diseases and heal itself. This means that there are no problems of side effects from the medication used and there is also no danger of becoming dependent or even addicted to any medication. As the body ages, the metabolism naturally slows down. This means that the use of conventional medicines can possibly cause reactions or lead to other health issues as the metabolism is no longer able to deal with the effects of the artificial substances that are being introduced into the body. This is not the case with homeopathy.

This proven and gentle yet effective system of health maintenance that homeopathy offers is the right way to age with grace and retain the good health that will enable seniors to demonstrate that the phrase “golden years” does not simply refer to a time of life, but also refers to the quality with which that life is lived and enjoyed. To know more about the use of homeopathy for better health in the senior years, contact a homeopathic doctor.

Homeopathic Medicines and Surgery Recovery

The advances in surgical techniques and procedures over the last century have been stupendous. That which was considered fatal till a generation ago is now treatable through surgery. However, surgery is not a silver bullet that promises to cure every medical problem. It contains both, the best and worst of traditional medicine. The advances made in the field have saved countless lives, but they have also given doctors an escape route when they cannot diagnose or treat a medical condition. Not all doctors subscribe to the theory of “when in doubt, cut’” but a frighteningly large number do.

The Problem with Surgery

There is a common misconception that homeopathic medicine is anti-surgery.  Homeopaths acknowledge that there are some conditions that can only be treated through surgery, but it must be the last resort. The problem with traditional medicine is that surgery is often used even when the body is still able to heal itself without invasive treatment. It is also used when other treatments that are safer with fewer side effects and shorter recovery periods are still available.

Another issue is that even a “successful” operation does not always mean a cure. Removing an organ like a kidney or a tumor may resolve the immediate problem, but the underlying cause of the issue may still remain. Complications for a surgical procedure may appear years after the “successful” operation was done.

Homeopathy and Surgery

It must be understood that homeopathy is not against surgery when it is used judiciously; it is the one-size-fits-all solution to medical problems that homeopathy is against. A homeopathic doctor will try to use a homeopathic remedy or a combination of them to try to cure a medical condition. The results may be surprisingly good to those who do not know this branch of medicine. In the few instances where the results of homeopathic treatments are not what is desired, then the surgical option can be explored.

If the need for surgery is confirmed, homeopathy can be used to reduce possible complications and to improve the quality and pace of the healing process. Patients are told not to eat, drink or consume any non-prescribed medication before the surgery. This is sensible but there has never been any reported instances of problems arising from taking homeopathic medicines prior to the procedure. There are medicines to:
  • Reduce hemorrhage and infections
  • Reduce pre and post-surgical anxiety
  • Reduce post-surgery pain and agitation
  • Reduce the inflammation caused by extended use of intravenous (IV) therapy
  • Help restore balance to the system and promote recovery
  • And much more
Homeopathic medication can be taken along with traditional medication to hasten cure and speed up recovery.

Consult a Homeopathic Doctor

While the effectiveness and safety of homeopathy are well established and beyond question, self-medication is never a good idea. If you have been told that you require surgery, consult a homeopathic doctor to see if there are alternatives and if not, how homeopathy can help in both the procedure itself and the recovery. The doctor will discuss the matter with the surgeon to develop a combined treatment protocol that will maximize the surgical results and will help in a speedy recovery.

Easing Eyestrain

The more the time that you spend looking at your computer monitor, your smartphone or your TV, the more the strain that you are placing on your eyes. Being connected and online 24 hours a day may have its benefits, but good health and clear vision are not among them. The light emitted by the screens of smartphones, tablets, e-books, etc. stresses the eyes. Also, the need to read small characters while watching real-life surroundings increases the stress the eye is placed under. As the eyes become increasingly tired, the frequency of blinking reduces which exacerbates the problem because it is the blinking that spreads tears across the eye surface and helps keep the eyes moist.

If there is serious eye irritation or if vision is affected, it is important that an eye specialist is

•  Redness:  This is the most common effect of eyestrain. It is usually accompanied by other symptoms and various types of discomfort such as dryness, burning sensation in the eye and a foreign body sensation in the eye. Euphralia eye drops are used to provide relief from redness and other problems.

•  Dry Eyes: Homeopathy has both eye drops and oral medications to deal with this problem. These include Bryonia alba 9 CH and Alumina 9 CH. Bryonia alba is usually prescribed when there is dryness of the mouth as well. Alumina 9CH is often given when an inadequate intake of water makes the dryness worse.  A doctor will determine the best option for you. 

•  Eye Fatigue: This is when there is no significant redness, dryness or irritation but the eyes feel tired, similar to the way the feet feel after a very long walk. If your eyes feel tired most of the time and closing them for a few minutes provides temporary relief, then it is likely that you suffer from eye fatigue.

contacted without delay. However, to treat lifestyle-related eyestrain, homeopathy is the best option. Homeopathy does not merely suppress the symptoms but works to help the body naturally overcome the causes of the problem; it is also safe, effective, free from side effects and offers a long-term solution to the problem. Among the most common results of eyestrain are:

While homeopathic medication offers effective treatment for these and other problems caused by eyestrain related to lifestyle issues, it is also important to look at modifying the time spent on the activities that cause the problem. It is not realistic to think that you will never view your digital devices. However, ensuring that your eyes get enough rest will, along with homeopathy, provide the most effective long term cure while enabling you to remain connected with the digital world.

As with any form of medicine, self-diagnosis and treatment are not advisable. Contact a homeopathic doctor who will examine you to understand the causes of the eyestrain – there may be factors you do not realize that are contributing to the problem. Once the nature of the condition and its causes are understood, you will be prescribed homeopathic medications that will be most effective in relieving you of the eyestrain.  Eyestrain develops slowly and often people do not fully realize the discomfort they are subjected to. It is only when the problem is resolved that they realize the value of stress-free eyes.
