Frequently asked questions
What is Homeopathy ?
Homeopathy is a system of natural  and safe  therapy, that uses infinitesimal doses of medicines or remedies. These remedies are prepared from substances mainly  found in nature.Because the remedies are very diluted,usually to the point that they  cannot be traced, they are extremely safe.Essentially, Homeopathy transfers to the patient  pharmacological information of biophysical nature.
There are literally hundreds of high quality, published basic science, pre-clinical and clinical studies showing that homeopathy works..The goal of the homeopath is to recognize through the unique expression of the pathology and symptoms of a patient the pattern of the individual disturbances and identify the most similar ,that is most suitable to the individual case,remedies.Since homeopathic remedies are devoid of any chemical toxicity, homeopathy is the ideal system of medicine for people of all ages.
Homeopathy is the art and science of healing by safe, gentle, and natural methods. The word homeopathy is coined from the Greek words ‘homoios’ meaning like or similar and ‘pathos’ meaning suffering (similar suffering),so that it much more corectly it should be called “Homoeopathy”. It works on the principle of  ‘likes be cure by likes’ which means that what will cause will cure. Therefore, according to the Homeopathic Law of Similars, a substance that when taken in crude form causes a set of symptoms or disease in a healthy person can cure similar symptoms occurring during an illness when treated with small, often infinitesimal, potentised doses of the same substance. This substance will help to stimulate the body’s own healing power to effect a deep and long-lasting cure. The concept has been known and applied since Hippocrates in 450 BC in Greece and has been further developed down the ages until more scientific examination was undertaken by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.

According to the homeopathic principle of Similars, a person suffering from hay fever, with watery eyes and a burning nasal discharge,instead of taking an antihistamine to dry up the discharge, might be prescribed Allium cepa, a tiny dose of common onion specially prepared by a homeopathic pharmacy – because onion is known to cause watery eyes and a burning nasal discharge. Similarly, suppose a person can’t sleep because of agitation or an overactive mind, instead of giving a conventional “sleeping pill,” a homeopath might give Coffea – a homeopathic preparation of coffee,which is known to prevent sleeping.

What can homeopathy treat?
‘Treatment’ or ‘to treat’ does not promise or imply a ‘cure’,it means therapeutic care,which in the case of Homeopathy is absolutely coordinated with the natural laws and principles that moderate Physiology and Pathology,an advantage that hardly can be claimed by chemically manufactured drugs of modern conventional pharmacology.So,Homeopathic treatment is a real treatment of health economy imbalances and not a simple suppressor of the expressions and of the language of the Human Body.

What are the principles of Homeopathy?
The first major feature of Homeopathic medicine is the Indivualization for Treatment Determination.This means that different people may have different pathogenic reasons,symptoms and syndromes even though the disease name is the same, so treatment strategies and formulas are different.For example, the “headache” can be caused by external factors, such as wind, cold, damp, dryness and/or internal factors, such as metabolic deficiencies, blood stasis, liver disorders, emotional /mental /psychosomatic imbalances,etc. So different treatment strategies will be used according to the different causative factors.Homeopathic medicine considers essentially relevant to patient personal/social/environmental data, such as age, gender, work, living environment, emotional feelings, mood, stress, climate, habits, favored foods, etc.

The other major principle is Totality for Treatment Determination.This means that in all Diseases the whole organism suffers,even if organ pathology is conventionally recognized in a certain organ or part of the body.So,treatment should be applied for both the diseased organ or part of the body and for the totality of all current sufferings all over the body.The total sum of the present symptoms,functional dsturbances and pathologic lesions of the organism expresses the current model of the health defence mechanisms of the body,which is the most critical factor for the outcome of the  pathology of the certain organ or part of the body. So,modern Homeopathy should care equally for both the Patient and the Disease.
