What is homeopathy?
B 1790 Samuil Ganeman based a doctoring method which received the name “ homeopathy “ (from Greek “ homoios “ - similar, “ pathos “ - suffering).
Having made a number of experiments, Ganeman came to a conclusion that those substances which can cause a disease state are capable to eliminate a similar state, being divorced to a certain concentration.
So, for example, opium causes drowsiness, and in homeopathic, that is very small doses, is capable to relieve of this state. Ganeman formulated this conclusion so: similar is treated by similar.
It allocated five circumstances which should be considered at research of an illness: 1) condition of sick body and type of pathological process; 2) feelings and state of mind of the patient; 3) allocations and departures; 4) constitution and individual properties of the patient; 5) etiology.
Therefore the expert before appointing a preparation, will ask on the clinical record and its current, on a way of life, food, tastes, features of character and even dreams. He will consider illness symptoms as manifestation of fight of an organism against a disease and will appoint treatment taking into account these circumstances.
Homeopathists consider that people can treat themselves, eating properly, correctly thinking and looking after itself. The purpose of the homeopath - to stimulate protective forces of an organism. Therefore medicine has to not only influence an illness symptom, but also to be compatible to the patient`s organism in general. For production of medicines plants, minerals and even poisons are used, homeopathic cultivations do not contain any molecule of the substance.
The main task at the choice of a homeopathic remedy has to consist in coordinating physical character of medicine with character of an illness. As a rule, the doctor registers one preparation to observe how the organism will react to it, and through two - three weeks it is necessary to visit the expert again. If necessary it will correct treatment. Possible temporary deterioration in health, emergence of other problems, especially skin, demonstrates that the organism of the patient was engaged in reduction of in norm.
Homeopathic treatment does not allow influence on an organism of any exciting substances. It can interfere with treatment. During treatment it is forbidden to smoke, drink coffee and chicory, tea, beer and alcoholic drinks, to eat greasy food, spices, chocolate. The skilled homeopath can order certain rules of food to each type of patients. Be not surprised if he forbids to the use quite dietary, according to the majority, products. You will feel how well refusal of food, unsuitable for you, will affect you. Homeopathic medicines cannot be held on light and near electric devices.
The main advantage of treatment by homeopathic remedies consists that can use them also those to whom usual preparations and medicinal herbs - from - for allergies or the created immunity are contraindicated, owing to infantile or senile age, pregnancy and other features. But any person, not the person interested to suppress the organism chemical medicines with inevitable side effect will be helped by homeopathy. It is important to choose correctly the expert and not to neglect even his most unusual recommendations.
You should not resort independently to homeopathic treatment even if to you any preparations at similar symptoms were already appointed. Treatment has to take place surely under supervision of the expert who will consider both a condition of an organism, and need of alternation of preparations, and even a season.
Some started diseases, for example, already demanding operations, the homeopath will not undertake to treat, but will help recovery of health after radical intervention.
Homeopathic treatment normalizes an organism, relieves of the whole complex of chronic diseases and symptoms, it is only important to stock up with patience and not to be frightened temporary deterioration in a state, recovery process so begins.
