What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that bases its treatment on the individual's health status. Homeopathic treatment takes into consideration physical health and lifestyle as well as emotional and mental well-being.
Homeopathy uses micro-doses of natural substances, which helps stimulate and strengthen the body's natural defensive and healing capability. Homeopathy in short: Treat the patient as an individual and not just their disease.
Homeopathy is the first system of medicine to offer personalized care (holistic approach). By treating the individual and not merely the disease, one may receive the best care to help restore health and wellness.
An individualized approach recognizes everyone's uniqueness, especially when it comes to health and disease. Physical issues, emotions, and the environment can influence health. Added factors such as age, gender, ethnic background, past medical history and current health status can determine how a person reacts to different types of treatment.
Clinical homeopathy integrates homeopathy while applying clinical medical sciences and diagnostics to ensure the best outcome for the individual.
What Can Homeopathy Treat?
Homeopathy recognizes that the mind and body can have an impact on health, disease, vitality and well-being. Our individualized approach strengthens an individual's health and healing by providing flexibility in treating acute and chronic ailments.
Homeopathy can treat a wide array of health concerns including women's health, children's health (pediatric), skin ailments (dermatology), heartburn/GERD, stomach aches, migraines and bladder infections.
What does medical research say about homeopathy?
Homeopathy has a growing body of clinical evidence in which homeopathic treatment provides a positive effect that cannot be explained by the placebo effect.
As of 2014, a total of 104 papers had reported good-quality placebo-controlled RCTs in which 61 different medical conditions were published in peer-reviewed journals. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) is widely accepted as a method to prove whether or not a medical treatment works and is considered as the "gold standard" of clinical Research. When compared to 1016 systematic reviews of RCTs in traditional medicine the data are strikingly similar to the findings published for homeopathy.
Perhaps the best type of evidence for treatment comes from critically assessing more than one RCT in a carefully defined method; this is known as a systematic review. Out of seven major systematic reviews, six of these studies concluded that homeopathy has an effect greater than placebo.
