All those “reliable” sources call homeopathy a pseudoscience and a quackery? Time to learn the truth – millions of people who swear by it can’t be all that wrong.
In a nutshell, homeopathy stimulates your own healing ability. The same healing ability that heals cuts and scrapes, mends broken bones and fights infections. We all take it for granted until something goes wrong and we get stuck. Why does this happen? Sometimes the demands and stresses of our lives get too much, and our natural ability to heal gets overwhelmed. That’s where homeopathy comes in.
Homeopathy is a safe, natural and very effective system of medicine. Millions of doctors and other therapists prescribe homeopathy. Over 100 million people in the European Union alone rely on it. We know it works, but we don’t yet know how. More on this here.
Skeptics constantly attack homeopathy, but I have no doubt that the truth will prevail. As Arthur Schopenhauer said,
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
I think homeopathy is going through the second stage. But I believe more and more people are waking up to the fact that we need to concentrate on natural, cheap and effective therapies that benefit humanity, not the big corporations.
Homeopathy’s impressive track record in epidemics
Some think that homeopathy is a trendy ‘new-age’ thingy, but it’s not true. Homeopathy’s been around for over 200 years. Just to compare, modern chemical-based model of medicine is only a little over 100 years old.
Let’s take a look at history. Life was tough during the 19th century. Deadly epidemics of typhus fever, cholera, yellow fever, scarlet fever, pneumonia, diphtheria and other deadly diseases swept through Europe and the USA. Homeopathy was widespread in those days. As a result, lots of people were treated with homeopathy. There is plenty of evidence that cases treated in homeopathic hospitals had strikingly lower mortality rates compared to cases treated conventionally. For example, in 1854 London cholera epidemic Royal College of Physicians reported that in cases treated by homeopaths only 9% of people died. Comparing to 59.2% for cases treated conventionally the difference is pretty staggering.
What can homeopathy treat?
Homeopathy treats both acute and chronic conditions. It acts as a catalyst and stimulates your own built-in defences, your immune system and vitality. It encourages your body to restore itself and heal. But what about auto-immune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis? The immune system is already in overdrive, attacking the person’s own body. Therefore, the last thing we want to do is to stimulate it even further. Here homeopathy acts as an immunomodulator, toning down the overactivity. It produces a calming and balancing effect on the immune response.
Homeopathy for disease prevention
We say that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Homeopathy shines here too. It is unique in its ability to address the predisposition or susceptibility to becoming ill in response to certain triggers. For example, imagine that two people are exposed to a harsh cold wind, but only one of them develops a cough. This happens because this person is vulnerable or susceptible to be knocked out of balance by cold wind. He is sensitive to this trigger.
Susceptibility can be mental, emotional or physical. For example, some new mothers are much more likely to suffer from a post-natal depression than others.
There is also the familial susceptibility. You can often clearly trace a tendency to develop certain condition through generations. We call it “illness that runs in the family”. Homeopathic treatment reduces this vulnerability. As a result, we become more resilient and less likely to develop diseases that our parents and grandparents suffered from.
To sum it all up, homeopathy is marvellous! It’s my life’s passion, my joy and my source of infinite fascination. I’ve seen its miraculous effects on people with my own eyes, and I never cease to be amazed by what it can do. Invite homeopathy into your life, I promise you’ll never look back!
