Health basics: Why homeopathy is rapidly gaining acceptance and credibility
Why is homeopathy becoming so popular, so quickly?
No time in the history of mankind have people beenso sick as they are right now, and conventional medicine is NOT helping. The population is much sicker than 60 years ago, when “Big Pharma” really took over the mainstream health industry, and that’s mainly because Conventional medicine does not treat thecause of the problem. The homeopathic practitioner treats the cause of the illness or disease in order to heal the effect (http://www.extraordinarymedicine.org/).
Vastly safer than conventional medicine, homeopathy is a treatment modality which uses very minute substances found in nature, like minerals and herbs, to trigger healing responses in the body using an organic method which teaches the body to heal itself. Unlike pharmaceutical medications, when the patient comes off of the medication,the body retains the healing benefits. In other words, the body is not dependent on certain molecules remaining in the body to continue the healing process, as it would be with synthetic drugs, like most heart medications.
Dispelling the myth of the placebo
Have you ever heard of a stimulant controlling hyperactivity, or local honey preventing pollen allergies? Much like the saying, “The hair of the dog that bit you,”homeopathy treats like with like, so for example, hayfever is treated with a ‘potentiated’ solution of pollen. Rumors and misconceptions often spread quickly about natural remedies, especially ones that fly in the face of science.
Millions of people attest to the fact that massage therapy works, and many of those benefits come from the therapist understanding Shiatsu and the body’s “total” energy. Similarly, homeopathy works by helping balance your body’s energy or “chi” in traditional Chinese medicine. This energy is circulated along specific meridians, and when this circulation gets disrupted,like from toxins in food and pharmaceuticals, illness is often the result (http://altmedicine.about.com/od/massage/a/shiatsu.htm).
Homeopathic solutions themselves are not simply water or placebos, but contain miniscule doses of plants, minerals, animal products or other compounds that trigger symptoms similar to what you are already experiencing, and that’s why many patients think they are getting worse at the beginning of treatment, when in reality, it’s the beginning of the ingenious homeopathyhealing process.
Many famous people have used homeopathy successfully, including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tina Turner, Charles Dickens, David Beckham, and W.B. Yeats. Homeopathy is not only the second largest system of medicine in the world, but is thefastest growing!
