Homeopathy was developed in Germany by the research of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathy is based on the principle of Like Cures Like, which means that if X can cause fever and rash in a healthy person; X can cure a patient suffering from the exact same symptoms.
Man is an organic unity of the body, mind and soul. The material part consists of his body, his various organ systems, his glands, his tissues and fluids, his brain. The non material part that gives life to the body that governs it and controls its functions is called ‘Vital force/vital energy’ in homeopathy. Vital force is what Chinese medicine would call chi – an energetic phenomenon. But it’s not described in the conventional framework of thinking – the nearest we get to it is the principle of homeostasis – that the body is always trying to maintain an internal balance.
For homeopaths disease is not just sum of few symptoms, but the disturbances at energy level, disturbances at the mind (Which includes feelings, fears, thoughts, perceptions and reactions to all theses) and body level (Which includes sleep, desires and aversions, appetite, thirst, thermal modalities and symptoms related to each systems).
The homeopathic remedy works by stimulating the body’s own healing power (immunity). The stimulus will help assist your own system to clear itself of any expressions of imbalance. The aim is to bring your own body to a level of wellness-capability to restore the imbalance- so as to cure itself.
How does homeopathy work?
We believe disease is an imbalance or disharmony of energy levels at body, mind and emotional level. These imbalances get manifested via body in form of signs and symptoms. Homeopathy attempts to boost body’s own healing capacity. This stimulus assists your system in clearing itself of any expressions of imbalance.
The homoeopath gives you a medicine or remedy which matches your symptoms as you experience them, and which takes into account you as a person – your individual characteristics emotionally as well as physically.
What can I expect during my initial homeopathic consultation?
The homeopath needs a detailed understanding of who you are, along with details of any complaints and how you experience them. The more your homeopath knows about you, the more easily will he or she be able to treat you effectively.
Do homeopathic medicines have any side effects?
Homeopathic medicines are energy. The material in the medicines is serially diluted to remove toxic effects of it hence there are no side effects.
Do we have different medicines for different complaints?
In homeopathy we do not have separate medicine for head, nose, ears, throat, etc. We give one single medicine which affects the patient as a whole and removes all his troubles. There is no medicine for any particular disease but there is medicine for the patient who is suffering from the disease. A single remedy is chosen on the basis of holistic approach which treats different complaints of the same person.
What happens once treatment starts?
It is a very individual experience .Most of times your chief complaint start getting better, i.e. its intensity and frequency starts reducing. Some patients experience exceptional well being and optimism. Sometimes your symptoms may get worse for a time. Sometimes a cold, rash or some other form of discharge may appear as your system goes through a cleaning stage. If any of your responses concern you, do not hesitate to contact us.
How long does treatment take?
This depends on the illness as well as the other individual characteristics of your case. In general, a slowly developing or long-standing complaint takes longer to cure than an acute one. Remember that homeopathy aims to cure both the cause of your illness as well as its symptoms, so be patient.
How can I book an appointment?
You can email or call us and schedule an appointment. We have a clinic at Powai. It is advisable to take an appointment before coming as the initial consultation usually takes close to an hour.
What are Homeopathic medicines made of?
Homeopathic medicines are made out of milk sugar and cane sugar. They are medicated with the remedy prepared in alcohol base. A homeopathic remedy is an extremely pure, natural substance that has been diluted many times. In large quantities these substances would cause the same symptoms the patient is trying to cure. In small, pure, diluted doses, it is not only safe and free from side effects, but it will trigger the body to heal itself.
The first potency of any remedy consists of 1 drop of remedy in 99 drops of water. This will be equal to 1 drop of remedy in the first bottle full of water. The higher the potency, the greater the dilution. The 200th potency will be approximately 1 drop of medicine in a swimming pool full of water and the 50,000th potency will be approximately 1 drop of medicine diluted in a one lake full of water.
How long one should continue homeopathy treatment?
It is completely dependent on the depth of disease. Acute diseases will need medicines for short duration like 7 days or 15 days. Long standing diseases like Diabetes, Hypertension, Immunity boosting, Join pains etc will need long duration treatment.
