Homeopathy is an effective and scientific system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that all the symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs to be treated as an individual holistically.
Homeopathy believes that the physician’s primary mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure rapidly, gently, permanently. Homoeopathy was invented by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1796.It is based on the principle “Similia Similibus Curantur”, that means likes are cured by likes (that a disease is cured by those remedies which produce effects resembling the disease itself in a healthy individual).
Homeopathy is in use in all parts of the world for more than 200 years and has been proved safe beyond doubt.
Homeopathic medicine works on the principle that a cure for a disease can be evoked by using a high dilution medicine that resembles, yet is different from, the cause of the disease. This mechanism is quite similar to the mechanism of action of vaccines in overcoming diseases. Due to its high dilutions homeopathy is accepted to be a safe system of medicine and free of undesirable side-effects. The safety of homeopathy has been established over common use for a few hundred years, and most homeopathic remedies are available over the counter (OTC).
It is interesting to read the views of the National Institutes of Health in the USA, which can be accessed at http://nccam.nih.gov/health/homeopathy/.
Other leading researchers that contributed to the field include Hugo Schultz, who showed that very low concentrations of yeast toxins increased yeast growth over 100 fold, and the psychiatrist Rudolph Arndt, who developed the “Basic Law of Biology”, which states that weak stimuli slightly accelerate the vital activity, middle- strong stimuli raise it, strong stimuli suppresses it, and very strong stimuli halt vital activity. In contrast to allopathic medicine, which works to inhibit undesired physical symptoms and to kill undesired pathogens, homeopathy begins with small doses and moves towards progressively higher dilutions to stimulate the body’s own natural immune mechanism. It is interesting that the traditional Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda, also talks about the efficacy of micro-doses of medical substances in reaching the cellular level of the body. Homeopathy has played a great role in healing Respiratory disorders. It improves the immunity, produces equilibrium in the body and thereby assists the body’s natural defensive mechanism to take care of the illness.
Dr. Upasani with his research has specialized in Respiratory conditions. He has vast experience in treating many patients of various chronic respiratory conditions.
