What are the benefits of homeopathic treatment? How does it compare with the mainstream medical treatment? Are there other holistic health care therapies that compare favourably with homeopathy? And perhaps, the next question is, how do you go about getting homeopathic treatment?
Comparing health modalities does have its drawbacks as you really can’t compare apples with oranges, as the saying goes. But as the current medical model seems to have invaded everyone’s perspective on health care, a comparison is necessary.
Four Important Comparisons – Homeopathic Treatment Versus Medical Treatment
1 – Medicine is a hotch potch of different people’s ideas. It doesn’t have a philosophy that governs the whole approach.
Homeopathy has a fixed philosophy that is based on nature laws, that oversees how successful outcomes result. You can’t ignore the natural law of gravity or of the planets orbiting the sun. These laws are never questioned.
2 – Medicine follows a strict protocol for each disease label. First, tests are performed to elicit the label. However, many of these tests are limited in their capacity and can be misleading. Tests can be mis-read, and that is a very real and common problem. The fixed protocol doesn’t take into consideration possible causes or personal sensitivities.
Good homeopathic treatment treats everyone as the individual they are. Causes are examined. Sensitivities are taken seriously. Quirky symptoms honoured for the guidance they give. Instead of tests, symptoms are used to gain information regarding the patient and the problem. Medical labels can be used, but are not necessary.
3 – Medicine considers the patient much like a mechanic considers a car. Only the physical is considered.
Homeopathy looks upon life as energetic. Patients ‘vibrate’ at a certain energy. The cause is, very often, a result of a misplaced belief or thinking pattern. For example, a child growing up in an environment that is very controlled, will first develop psychological issues. If these are not resolved, physical issues will follow. The body does this to afford it some relief. They are not ‘bad’.
4 – Medicine is at war with pathogens, be they bacteria, viruses or fungi. They aim to kill the offender, without regard for the effect it has on the patient. The patient is immaterial. It’s the micro-organism that must be killed at all costs.
Homeopathy recognises that every life, however small, has a role to play. Micro-organisms and pathogens are not the enemy. Instead, the vitality of the immune system is the key to good health. And the only key. This means, the patient has a problem because their immune system is struggling badly. This needs to be supported and restored to its rightful place of looking after the patient.
What Are The Benefits Of Homeopathic Treatment?
1 – Homeopathy is an holistic treatment, so the whole of you is considered, rather than just a part.
2 – Because the treatment is an energetic one rather than a physical one, there are no adverse side effects that are so common with medicine.
3 – The cause is targeted, resulting in complete restoration of health and harmony.
4 – Your treatment is individual to you including your sensitivities, past treatments, etc.
5 – Medical tests can be used, but are not necessary as your signs and symptoms give homeopaths the necessary information and tend to be more accurate.
6 – In many cases, a beneficial result can be felt immediately.
7 – Homeopathy is a complete system of health care for everyone – mental, emotional and physical, men, women and children, animals. Even plants respond well to the right homeopathic remedy.
Whilst other holistic treatments can be beneficial in your overall health care, there are few that compare with the speed, the thoroughness and the depth than can, and should, happen with good homeopathic treatment.
With homeopathic treatment becoming more widely recognised for the value it brings, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best approach is to consult with a registered and professional homeopath you feel comfortable with. Once you have discovered its benefits, then you’re in a better position to appreciate the difference. There’s nothing quite like personal experience.
Then you’re in a better mental frame of mind to learn to use some of the common remedies for acute conditions.
What are the benefits of homeopathic treatment? In reality, there are a multitude of answers that have only been touched on here. But one thing is for sure and that’s that your life will take on a whole new and improved meaning and direction.
