What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a method of treatment that supports the body's own healing mechanism. It is based on the law of similars "like cures like". A Homoeopathic remedy is an extremely pure, natural substance that has been diluted many times. In large quantities these substances would cause the same symptoms the patient is trying to cure. In small, pure, diluted doses, it is not only safe and free from side effects, but it will trigger the body to heal itself. Homoeopathic remedies are regulated and manufactured under strict quality controls by the United States Food and Drug Administration-FDA. Homoeopathic remedies come in several forms tablets, powders, liquids etc,but not mixtures/ patents/ combinations/polypharmacy. Tablets/globules are the most common and popular. Tablets are sugar pills with the liquid remedy infused. They are taken sublingually or on the tongue itself.
Homoeopathy is more than just the physical. Homoeopathic remedies can touch upon emotions, personality, the mental plane and even spirituality. To put it in simple words, homoeopathy is energy. It’s not simply the food energy we imbibe, but the soul energy that drives us. We are dynamic individuals and homoeopathy is also dynamic.
Remember that Homoeopathy is not just nutrition or herbs. It is not based solely upon material substance. The essence of homoeopathy is based upon the spirit that flows through physical matter.

HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES ARE IMMUNOMODULATORS

IT IS SAID THAT HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES ACT SLOW. IS IT CORRECT?
It is not true. Rather action of homoeopathic medicines is the fastest provided patients comes to physician instantly. But it is seen in most of the cases, patients’ visits homoeopathic specialist very late i.e. why recovery is late.

IF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES HAVE NO SIDE EFFECTS?
Yes homoeopathic medicines are very safe; do not have any side effects….but they do have bad effects when misused or overused. Never do self medication.

What is Potency?
Homoeopathic remedies are classified into three levels of potencies. X,C and M refer to 10, 100 and 1,000 in terms of the amount of dilution. The confusing and amazing aspect of Homoeopathy is that the more a tincture is diluted, the more potent it becomes. So, while a C is more dilute than an X, the C is more potent. The M classification is very potent and is usually prescribed by Homoeopathic physicians. Homoeopathic remedies begin with part of the original substance dissolved in alcohol, called the mother tincture. The mother tincture is then diluted many times. After each dilution the solution is shaken or "succussed", this shaking activates the remedy. The solution is then made into pills, powders, tinctures or creams. A 1X potency is created by mixing 1 part of the mother tincture and 9 parts alcohol or distilled water. In each successive number (increasing the potency 2X, 3X, 6X ), 1 part is taken from the previous potency and diluted according to the new potency.
Example: A 3X remedy (10x10x10=1000) has one part of the 2X remedy to 999 parts of alcohol or distilled water. What does this mean to you when you are trying to select the remedy and potency?
1) The higher the potency (30th potency) the more confident you need to be that you have selected the correct remedy.
2) Use the lower potency (6th potency) when you are uncertain of the remedy.
3) Higher potencies take less doses. Lower potencies take more doses.
4) A general rule is double the C potency number to get the equivalent X potency.
             15C = 30X
              6C = 12X

How Do I Take A Homoeopathic Remedy?
Though all medicines look similar but each medicine is different for every individual. Keep them away from the reach of children.The remedies should be kept in cool, dark place. Be careful not to touch the tablets when taking them, pour the tablets into the cap and then into your mouth. Allowing these to dissolve on your tongue. Always follow the recommend dosage as told by your physician. There are just few guidelines to consider when using Homoeopathy. Certain foods, substances like hard drinks(wine/whisky), mentha products, coffee or any substance that anesthesia’s the part or antidote the action of the remedy.  Also avoid eating anything 15 minutes before or after taking a remedy. These are only guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Some people feel that these things greatly interfere with the remedy, others do not. It is just a matter of finding out how sensitive you are. Typically only one remedy is taken at a time. Although when you go to the store to purchase a remedy you will undoubtedly see combinations of remedies, packaged to treat a sore throat, or flu. Here again, there seems to be two schools of thought on the subject, and again it is up to you to decide what works best for you. In real/classical homoeopathy there are no patents/mixtures/combinations or polypharmacy drugs. Homoeopathic remedies can be found in most health food stores in US or other countries, but in India available in regular homoeopathic pharmacies.. NEVER TAKE ANY DRUG SUBSTANCE MAY BE HOMOEOPATHIC WITHOUT YOUR DOCTOR’S ADVISE

How Do I Know if its Working?
There are several ways the body reacts to Homoeopathy. 1) Physical symptoms get a little worse, but the mental state improves. Later the physical symptoms improve. 2) Most common reaction is improvement of mental and physical symptoms. Often the improvement is rapid, 10-45min.. 3) The patient starts to feel better, then progress seems to level off or decline. If the symptoms are still the same then take another dose of the same remedy. 4) The patient starts to feel better, then progress seems to level off or decline. If the symptoms have changed since the initial remedy, new remedy may be needed. 5) The patient does not improve, feels worse or the physical symptoms improve but the mental state is worse. These reactions could signal a few things. The incorrect remedy was selected initially. The illness is due more to a constitutional imbalance. Depending on the seriousness of the condition; contact your doctor. The rule of thumb is if there is improvement- the patient should be left alone. While Homoeopathy is safe, over-prescribing can be dangerous, as it can confuse the disease symptom picture. With Homoeopathy a little goes a long way. Have patience, and watch the symptoms.

Is Homoeopathy  For Skin, allergy, cold/cough  only?
Homoeopathy is not just for acute illnesses like cold/cough etc, it is also be used with success in Cancers, Diabetes, Heart ailments, Arthritis or any other auto immune disorders by strengthening and support the immune system by means of constitutional remedies. A constitutional remedy is a remedy that works on a deep cellular level to bring the body and emotions back to a state of health and balance. By doing so it makes the whole system more resistant to disease. To find your constitutional remedy you will need to see a qualified, experienced Homoeopathic physician. They will ask you many questions, some may seem irrelevant, like what kinds of foods do you crave, or if you prefer the mountains or the seashore. And don't be surprised if you are given a single dose. Constitutional remedies are deep and long acting.

Can Homoeopathic medicines be taken along with other allopathic/ ayurvedic medicines?
This question is being asked so many times specially by all chronic patients who are under any other mode of treatment. I have noticed in my more than three decade practice that to immediately cut off the other medicines(steroids, hormonal medicines, heavy doses of pain killers, anti hypertension medicines, anti diabetic products, anti cancer treatment, psychotropic drugs etc) causes more harm to the sick. So I always advice my patients to taper off these medicaments under the supervision of your expert physician. Shortly your body will be so strong that it will never need these. Yes anti-epileptic medicines can be shut off immediately after starting  correct constitutional homoeopathic treatment. YOGA under proper instructor is highly beneficial along with this treatment.

If no medicine of other system work after homoeopathic treatment?
It is not true. It is misconception in the minds of certain folks. Rather it can be said that after correct homoeopathic treatment the body becomes so strong that no or very little & seldom any medication is needed to these individuals.

Prohibitions & precautions?
While taking homoeopathic treatment there is no prohibition as such while taking treatment. It is a myth to not to take onion, garlic or any other scented products along with homoeopathic medicines. But the reality is ‘unless told by the physician for any particular diseased person; there is not a single precaution’ like for Diabetic patients sweets are restricted, salt is restricted to hypertensive patients, fats are prohibited to jaundice patients etc. Yes all sorts of local applications on skin (may be allopathic, herbal or homoeopathic) or eating mint or any other substance which anaesthises the faucets or skin or any part of body should be avoided. It is seen in so many cases coffee, hard drinks (alcohol) also has negative effect on the action of homoeopathic medicines. It should be avoided specially for psychiatric, gastrointestinal patients.

If Surgery allowed in Homoeopthy?
More than 50% so called surgical cases are cured with simple homoeopathic medicines.But in certain cases surgical intervention is also needed for a homoeopathic physician e.g. in certain gross pathological diseases, to drain abscesses, , CPD, to set  bone fractures, suturing of wounds etc.

Do a homoeopath also needs various Lab investigations, Xray, Scan, MRI etc?
Yes. For diagnostic & prognostic point of view; all the investigations all equally recommended under homoeopathic treatment.

What is the Difference Between Homoeopathy and a Vaccination?
A vaccination infects the person with the actual disease. This is why some people may get sick from the vaccination. Homoeopathy on the other hand uses a remedy that will produce similar symptoms to the disease. In fact Homoeopathic remedies can be very useful to offset negative reactions to vaccinations.
