Homeopathy Vs Mainstream Medicine

Mainstream (or allopathic) medicine is amazing and one benefit with homeopathy is that it can work alongside it.  I’ve treated people having chemotherapy, helped them as they were weaned off Heroin and worked alongside many other medications.  However, I think most of us would agree that we’d rather live without needing medication from our doctors so here’s a few reasons to consider homeopathy instead:

  • Homeopathy is safe and unlike many mainstream medications there are no side effects from toxic chemicals.
  • When you are prescribed a homeopathic remedy from a homeopath you do not have to take it for life.  The remedy does its work by stimulating your body’s own healing powers until you no longer need it.
  • Homeopathic medicines are never tested on animals, instead, volunteers interested in discovering new remedies trial them and research them carefully.
  • Homeopathic remedies, properly prescribed are safe for pregnant women, new born babies and animals as well as everybody else.
  • Homeopathic medicines are easy to administer and pleasant to take.  They are usually dispensed as tiny sugar pills which are covered in the different homeopathic medicines.
  • Homeopaths treat individual, not diseases.  The benefit of this is that when your homeopath gives you a correct remedy, all, or many of your problems are helped with the same remedy and you do not have to visit a number of different specialists for different problems.  As well as the problem you want treatment for improving, your overall health, energy and sleep patterns will improve because homeopathy treats all of your symptoms at all levels – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical.
  • Homeopathy, when prescribed correctly is very effective in both acute and chronic conditions.  It offers curative and not palliative treatment to a large number of chronic ailments labelled as ‘incurative’ by mainstream medicine.
  • Homeopathic medicines are non-addictive.  They are gentle, subtle and powerful, working with your body instead of just masking unpleasant symptoms.
  • There are no painful or expensive tests necessary in homeopathic treatment making it far more pleasant for a patient to experience than some mainstream treatments.
  • Homeopathic medicines are very cheap compared to mainstream medicine.  This benefit may not be felt by people in countries where the Government covers the cost of mainstream medical treatment and hot more holistic treatments, but nevertheless the medication itself is far cheaper with no drain on the earth’s resources.
