About Homoeopathy

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over five hundred million people use homeopathy around the world. Homoeopathic system of medicine is the second largest medical system in the world according to the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics.

Homoeopathy is a gentle way of treating illnesses based on the principle of like cures like, and has been used clinically for more than 200 years. Like cures like implies that what will cause symptoms in a healthy person will trigger the cure of a sick person with those symptoms. It is a sophisticated system of using highly diluted substances as “remediesd” to trigger the body’s self healing power by stimulating a precise reaction in the body against the symptoms.

For example, when you peel an onion, you feel burn and itch in the eyes; you may also have a runny nose. If you have similar symptoms during a cold, then a homoeopathic micro-dose of the remedy called Allium cepa, made from red onion, can help to trigger your body to heal. This system originated in Germany 200 years ago and it is practiced in more than 60 countries. In India alone there are more than 3, 00,000 institutionally qualified Homoeopathic doctors.

Radient Pharma believes in same policy “ Likes cures like” and had developed holistic patent medicines to cures acute and chronic conditions. Homoeopaths take into account the patient’s unique symptom profile when prescribing a remedy and do not simply try to match an illness to a drug, as in the case of conventional medicine. Two patients with the same illness will not necessarily receive the same remedy. A cold sufferer with dry eyes will be given a different remedy than another cold sufferer with watery eyes.

Homoeopathy has been shown effective clinically in treating a wide range of acute and chronic conditions from headaches, coughs, sore throats, allergies, asthma, eczema, arthritis, chronic fatigue, to anxiety, depression, insomnia and much more.

How Homoeopathy Works

Homoeopathy is based on rigorous dilutions and mixing, called successions. The dilution level is printed on the bottle of medicine. A typical homoeopathic dilution is 30X, where the X represents 10. So, one part toxin (such as the aforementioned poison ivy) is mixed with 10 parts water or alcohol. The mix is shaken; one part of this mix is added to 10 parts of water or alcohol again; and the whole process is repeated 30 times. The final dilution is one molecule of medicine in 10 to the 30th power (1030) of molecules of solution — or 1 in a million trillion trillion. At this dilution level you'd need to drink 8,000 gallons of water to get one molecule of the medicine — physically possible but implausible.

Hahnemann didn't realize this. because, he developed his theory before the concept in chemistry of the mole and Avogadro constant, which defines the number of particles in any given amount of a substance. So, Hahnemann and his followers could do the mechanical actions of dilution, but unbeknownst to them, they were diluting the medicine right out of the solution.

Does it take a long time for treatment to work?

Not necessarily! In acute cases where there is a high fever, the right remedy can bring down the temperature by a degree within 30 minutes. Homoeopathy can also be use as first aid to provide quick help in acute problems such as food poisoning, injuries, burns, etc. However, if a patient suffers from a chronic problem over a long period of time, it may take longer to regain good health.

Is it safe for infants and pregnant women?

Yes, remedies— when administered by qualified Homoeopaths—are completely safe for everyone, including pregnant women and babies. In fact, difficulties during pregnancy and problems experienced by newborns can be treated effectively by Homoeopathy without any side effects. However, if you are taking medications or receiving conventional medical treatments, it is essential that you inform your Homoeopath to avoid any potential conflicts.
