What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a medical practice based on the Law of Similars: that is, if a natural substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance may cure the illness. Homeopathic medicines enhance the body's normal healing and self-regulatory process.
Is Homeopathy New?
The Law of Similars has been known since at least the time of Hippocrates (ca. 400 B.C.), but it was doctor and chemist Samuel Hahnemann who fully stated the ideas of homeopathy in the early 1800's in Germany. He discovered the truth of the Law of Similars by testing small doses of medicine on himself. Although there is wider acceptance of homeopathy in countries such as France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, India and Great Britain, we have seen a greater interest in homeopathic medicine in the USA recently. In fact, the family doctor to England's Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician.
Is there evidence that homeopathy works?
There are literally hundreds of high quality, published basic sciences, pre-clinical and clinical studies showing that homeopathy works. These studies have been published in respected journals like Lancet, Pediatrics, Rheumatology, and Annals of Internal Medicine, among others.
How to take homeopathic medicines?
Homeopathic medicated pellets contain only a little of an active ingredient for treatment of disease. These are known as highly diluted or "potentiated" substances. Homeopathic medicines should be placed under the tongue of adults and children or in the cheek of an infant, where they will dissolve. It is preferable to take homeopathic medicines apart from meals. The dosage is not related to the weight and age of the patient. In general, dissolve 5 pellets 3 times a day until symptoms are relieved or as directed by your health Care Professional.
Is homeopathy regulated?
The U.S. Congress passed a law in 1938 declaring that homeopathic remedies are to be regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the same manner as nonprescription, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.
