Homeopathy is a system of medicine founded on the definite law ‘like cures like’,first founded by Hippocrates. The word Homeopathy is certainly of Greek derivation where ‘homeos’ means ‘similar’ and pathos means ‘suffering’. So Homeopathy may be defined as the therapeutic method of symptom-similarity.According to this system, the choice of the medicine is fundamentally based on the principle that the medicine must be specifically suitable (‘similar”)to the symptoms and the pathology of the disease to be cured in each one individual case.
The specifically suitable Homeopathic remedies for any individual case are found after thoroughl case study and analysis ,so that the cause,the pathogenesis,the kind,the location,the extention,etc of Health disorders are revealed , recorded and correlated with the detailed description of the therapeutic action of Homoeopathic Remedies in HOMOEOPATHIC PHARMACOLOGY.Each one remedy is described in Homoeopathic Pharmacologies in detail concerning its elective action on organs, tissues,organic systems,functions,etc of the Human Body.
The suitability of a medicine for any given case does not depend on its accurate homeopathic selection alone, but likewise on the proper size of dose too. Under this principle we give medicine to the patients in very minute or infinitesimal doses. The quantity is minimum, yet appropriate and sufficient, for an efficient and gentle remedial effect,which is of biophysical informational nature. This concept of minimum or infinitesmall dose is completed by a practical process called potentisation,through which the therapeutic information is imprinted on water molecules. These morphologically altered water molecules are the active component of the sugar pills of homeopathic treatment,which are placed under the tongue.
Treatment by infinitesmall doses is also consistent with the Arndt-Schultz Law in Clinical Pharmacology and the Law of Least Action, formulated by Maupertius, the French mathematician, : “The quantity of action necessary to affect any change in nature is the least possible, the decisive amount is always a minimum, an infinitesimal.”Health is a matter of perfect equilibrium, perfect balance, trifling circumstances may sway it, and may be balanced by the least possible in medication.
CLASSIC HOMEOPATHY IN THE TRADITIONAL AND MODERN HEALTH AND DISEASE CONCEPTION
Homeopathy is a system of medical therapy that uses information of biophysical nature and/or very small (infinitesimal) doses of medicines or remedies that are hardly traced even by most modern technology. These remedies are usually prepared from substances found in nature. Because the remedies are highly diluted, usually to the point that no traceable molecules exist ,they are extremely safe. The clinical experience of homeopathy shows that the micro-dosing /biophysical information approach to diseases is effective. There are literally hundreds of high quality, published basic science, pre-clinical and clinical studies showing that homeopathy works. If someone searches in PubMed, a renowned Medical Literature Record, with the key word “homeopathy”, about 5.000 of publications in medical journals appear; therefore no one may claim that there is not accessible and reliable medical information or that there is no place for Homeopathy in the space of Scientific Evidence.
Homeopathic Remedies are carriers of pharmacological information biophysically imprinted on water molecules contained in your homeopathic “sugar pills or tablets”.This information is reminiscent of the digital information of computers’ technology,with which modern societies are too familiar.
Since homeopathic remedies are devoid of any chemical toxicity, homeopathy is the ideal system of medicine for people of all age. Homeopathy has long been established as mainstream medicine in the NHS (National Health System) of many countries. However in the USA today, Homeopathy is hardly even included in the so called ‘Integrative Medicine’ as applied in many renowned Health Care Units, and is ‘frozen out’ by pretending ignorance of the subject; but prior to 1925 many Homeopathic Hospitals were actively and successfully engaged in the US Health System.Why then is Homeopathy faced with such unreasonable rivalry in US?
In the European Union (EU) the whole health policy looks a bit better.
In the UK it is estimated that Homeopathy is growing 20% each year; it has been enrolled in the National Health System through an Act of Parliament from 1950 to the present.
The Swiss government has a long and widely-respected history of neutrality, and therefore, reports from this government on controversial subjects need to be taken more seriously than other reports from countries that are more strongly influenced by present economic and political constituencies. When one considers that two of the top five largest drug companies in the world have their headquarters in Switzerland, one might assume that this country would have a heavy interest in and bias toward conventional medicine, but such assumptions would be wrong.
In late 2011, the Swiss government’s report on homeopathic medicine represents the most comprehensive evaluation of homeopathic medicine ever written by a government and was just published in book form in English. This breakthrough report affirmed that homeopathic treatment is both effective and cost-effective and that homeopathic treatment should be reimbursed by Switzerland’s national health insurance program.
The Swiss government’s inquiry into homeopathy and complementary and alternative (CAM) treatments resulted from the high demand and widespread use of alternatives to conventional medicine in Switzerland, not only from consumers but from physicians as well. Approximately half of the Swiss population have used CAM treatments and value them. Further, about half of Swiss physicians consider CAM treatments to be effective. Perhaps most significantly, 85 percent of the Swiss population wants CAM therapies to be a part of their country’s health insurance program. It is therefore not surprising that more than 50 percent of the Swiss population surveyed prefer a hospital that provides CAM treatments rather to one that is limited to conventional medical care.
Beginning in 1998, the government of Switzerland decided to broaden its national health insurance to include certain complementary and alternative medicines, including homeopathic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, anthroposophic medicine, and neural therapy. This reimbursement was provisional while the Swiss government commissioned an extensive study on these treatments to determine if they were effective and cost-effective. The provisional reimbursement for these alternative treatments ended in 2005, but as a result of this new study, the Swiss government’s health insurance program once again began to reimburse for homeopathy and selective alternative treatments. In fact, as a result of a national referendum in which more than two-thirds of voters supported the inclusion of homeopathic and select alternative medicines in Switzerland’s national health care insurance program, the field of complementary and alternative medicine has become a part of this government’s constitution.
