Homeopathy is a system of natural remedies that centers around two basic laws. The first is the law of similars, which is built around the principle that “like cures like”, meaning that a disease is cured by medicines that have the properties of producing in healthy persons some symptoms similar to those of the disease. For example, if an individual has a fever with shivering, that person has to be treated with a medicine that would cause a healthy person to have similar symptoms. The second is the law of infinitesimals, which states that homeopathic medicines are more effective in minute doses.

Homeopathic medicines are effective in curing various diseases, such as the following:

Respiratory problems: allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, nasal polyps, asthma, chronic ear bronchitis. The medicines alter the patient’s response to allergens and infections, this helps build up immunity.

ENT: tonsillitis, hoarseness and complete aphasia, deafness, chronic ear discharge.

Genito-urinary problems: renal calculi, loss of bladder control (involuntary / frequent urination), enlarged prostate, erectile dysfunction.

Gynec & Obstetrics: dysfunctional bleeding due to fibroids, irregular menstrual periods due to various causes, ovarian cysts, frequent or habitual abortions.

Gastro-intestinal: hiccups, hyperacidity, gastric and duodenal ulcers, chronic diarrhea or constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, liver disease, pancreatitis, gall-stones, piles, fissures.

Locomotor systems and nerves: gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, cervical spondylosis, lumbar spondylosis, sciatica, neuralgia.

General: alopecia, chronic headaches, including migraines, tooth decay, warts, skin diseases.

In conditions like nasal polyps and renal and biliary calculi, homeopathic medicine dissolves most calculi.

In degenerative diseases like osteoarthiritis and spondylosis, the progress of the disease is arrested at the level of start of treatment.

Homeopathy offers a definite viable option as an alternative medicine.
