Homeopathy- A Treatment Which Has Zero Side-Effects
Homeopathy is considered the best alternative treatment method. But many people have this question if homeopathy has any side effects or not. So, it is always better to hear from an expert. In this article Dr. Pavan Kumar explains whether homeopathic medicines cause side effects ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. He is the founder of Sai Gayatri Homeo which is one of the best homeopathy clinic in Kukatpally, Hyderabad.
What Is Homeopathy?
It is a medicine that strengthens the body by stimulating the immune system it has no significant side effects each person is treated in an individualized way according to the principle of like cures like when a person has a swelling like that produced by a bee sting taking diluted bee venom will reduce the inflammation homeopathic medicines are prepared to progressive dilutions and agitations in separate flasks something known as ultra-high dilution.

What Can Homeopathy Cure-
Homeopathy is believed and has been proved to cure many fatal diseases including cancer. But it is mostly used to treat chronic illnesses & especially for kids. However, you should remember that it cannot magically cure every disease, no medicine can cure every disease, not even traditional medicines. But homeopathy will remove the disease from its roots by identifying the main cause & by boosting immunity to create resistance to that.
Most people believe that homeopathic medicines do not have side effects; and due to this belief, they self-medicate by reading somewhere, by hearing someone, by listening to so-called YouTube doctors who sell and abuse medicines. First of all, we need to understand what exactly side effects mean. What is the definition of side effects? For example, a doctor has prescribed the right medicine but that medicine has some uncomfortable signs and symptoms. These uncomfortable signs and symptoms are side effects. The most important thing in this is if the doctor is giving you the right medicine.
Take an example, a patient goes to a heart specialist for his raised cholesterol and the heart specialist prescribes him statins which is the right medicine. But still, the statin is known to cause side effects such as body ache, pain in the abdomen, and indigestion. So, here heart specialist is giving the right medicine but it still has some side effects.
Now Let’s Talk About Homeopathy Side-Effects-
There are absolutely no side effects of homeopathy if a homeopathic doctor is giving you the right medicine. The most important thing is that medicine should be right. So, in allopathy you are having the right medicine but then also you will have some side effects but in homeopathy, if you are taking the right medicine then there will be no side effects. But you need to keep in mind that you are given the right medicines.
How the Right Homeopathic Medicine Is Prescribed.
In order to prescribe the right medicine a homeopath should be an expert because this is very difficult work. In homeopathy, there are hundreds of medicines for a single disease, and which medicine is to be given in which potency and how many times in a day is an art and highly skillful job. An expert homeopath takes a complete case history of every patient, analyzes the case history properly, and then keeping in mind the sensitivities of the patient chooses the medicines, their potency and decides on the duration. Medicines chosen in this way improves every problem of the patient and that also without any side effects. This process is known as a constitutional treatment.
Always remember that a sensible doctor never prescribes the medicines only on the name of the disease because he knows that he will harm the patient by doing so. A sensible doctor never uses patent readymade homeopathic medicines. Patent homeopathic medicines are those which are sold on the name of the disease. Homeopathic cough syrup as an example, if you look carefully at its label, then 5 -7 medicines have been mixed in it. In homeopathy, there are at least 500 medicines for cough, now your cough syrup may not have any medicine according to your cough or have only 1-2 medicines and the rest are of no use. In such a situation you are taking medicines which do not suit you and should not be taken, such medicines will harm you. So, these are not side effects of medicines but a wrong prescription. Because the medicine you have taken is not given after proper study, it is just a mixture, you have been got.
A good homeopathic doctor does not use patent homeopathic medicines instead medicines are prescribed and dispensed according to the history of the patient. Beware of doctors who do not listen to you and prescribe medicines without a case study.
