The first principle of homeopathy was formulated by Dr. Hahnemann, a
German doctor in the 18th century. It is based on the concept that
similar affections are healed with similar formula. Today it is used
being a safe, non invasive therapy. It is non toxic to the body too,
and has no long-term side effects. It also boasts of being safer for
pregnant women, infants and the elderly compared with other therapies.
Homeopathic substances are made through the process of dilution.
Having no longer whole molecules, rendering them non-allergenic and
non-poisonous, they stimulate the body towards balance. Homeopathy uses
natural substances which are approved and regulated by the FDA. Most
remedies are available without a prescription.
Homeopathic remediescan be used along with supplements and herbs and can be safely taken
together with insulin, heart, blood pressure, thyroid and other
medications. Chronic diseases can be also treated with homeopathy as
well. Lately it offers treatments for various aspects ofobesitytoo. Homeopathic medicines help in the weight loss procedure by
improving digestion, elimination and metabolism. However, the medicines
need to be individually prescribed, based on different patterns. So
before taking them, consult a homeopathic doctor for proper advice.
