Homeopathy

Homeopathy comes from the Greek words ‘Homeo’ meaning ‘similar’ and ‘Pathos’ meaning ‘suffering’. It is a system of medicine, developed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann, based on the concept of ‘like cures like’. This means that any substance which produces a certain set of symptoms when taken by a healthy person will cure the same symptoms in a sick person, irrespective of the disease, when taken in an extremely diluted form. For example, if the symptoms of your cold are similar to those caused by an overdose of table salt, then a really diluted form of the salt will be your Homeopathic remedy for that attack of the cold.

Homeopathy in Dubai

Homeopathy doctors in Dubai and elsewhere thus use alternative medicine to help treat symptoms and cure many of the diseases people face. This treatment is vastly different from Allopathic or modern medicine. With modern medicine, the focus is often on the symptoms and not an actual solution. So a headache would be treated with a pain killer and a cough is treated with a cough suppressant. Your body is then left to treat these conditions on its own. Homeopathic medicine not only addresses the symptoms but the disease itself. This means you are actually helping your body to heal with homeopathic medicine. Only natural ingredients are used to make this medicine, which can also be used to treat acute and chronic conditions with no side effects. This is why many people turn to homeopathy in Dubai.

FrequentlyAsked Questions

Is Homeopathy safe?
Yes, Homeopathic medicine is completely safe, even for babies and pregnant women. Once a Homeopathic remedy has been diluted beyond 12C potency it is unlikely that even a molecule of the original substance remains. Normally the dilution is one part of the drug to 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water or any other natural medium.
How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine. It aims to treat the whole person taking into account the unique emotional and physical traits of the individual concerned. It may seem unusual to those familiar with allopathic (modern) medicine where one medicine is taken for a skin complaint, another for a headache, and yet another for sleeplessness. For example, there are nearly 5000 types of headache in the Homeopathic symptoms database. The remedy prescribed has to be matched to that particular headache-type of pain, its location, what brings it on, what aggravates it, patients state of mind, any other symptoms that he/ she may be experiencing etc. Hence there is no such thing as a standard homeopathic remedy for headache.
How is Homeopathic medication administered?
Homeopathic medicines should be taken on a clean palate. While on a course of Homeopathic treatment, one should avoid strong flavours such as mint (including toothpaste), coffee, camphor etc. The medicines are normally taken as pills that are placed under the tongue. Their contact with skin (including fingers) should be avoided.
What is the difference between Homeopathic and Allopathic (modern) medicine?
Allopathic Medicine has achieved significant leaps in preserving both the quality and longevity of life, and it is important to recognize this contribution. While in most cases symptoms are relieved, allopathic medicines generally work by suppressing the body's natural reaction to the pathogens. For example:
  • A cough is usually the result of foreign bodies in the lungs, the muscles spasm in an attempt to remove it. Cough syrups simply stop this reflex.
  • Many headaches are due to dehydration. Painkillers simply suppress the pain. Once the headache isn't felt the patient no longer feels the need to rest, possibly working up a sweat and dehydrating further.
  • There are many types of beneficial bacteria, which naturally inhabit the human body. The modern approach to treating infection is through antibiotics, which simply destroy the infecting bacteria. But whilst doing so the antibiotics also destroy the beneficial bacteria. In addition there is widespread concern that today's bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics.
In the eyes of the Homeopath, the symptoms of a disease are the body's attempt to cure itself. Homeopathy treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause not the symptoms, and in the process assists the body to build up its natural immunity. This often means that the symptoms tackled by Homeopathy do not recur.
