There are lots of myths about Homoeopathy due to which many people still don’t have faith in Homoeopathy. But in many foreign countries and even in our country the people are turning towards Homoeopathy and are getting best results.
According to WHO the Homoeopathy is used by 50 million people worldwide, making it the second most widely used medicine in the world. In England, France, Germany and Netherlands Homoeopathy is included in National Health Services.
So, in this article I’m going to clear some common myths about Homoeopathy.
MYTH- Homoeopathy is slow acting, it takes long time to cure or relieve the pain.
FACT- Homoeopathy is not a slow acting system, but the cure and relief depends upon at which stage of disease the patient is approaching for homoeopathic treatment . In case of chronic diseases with supressions, it will take a course of time. Earlier the approach, faster will be the relief.
MYTH- People with Diabetes mellitus cannot take homoeopathic medicines as they are sweet.
FACT- Homoeopathic medicines are made of a complex sugar called Lactose,(which is present in a very small amount) and isn’t harmful. What is harmful to diabetics, is the form of sugar, Glucose.
MYTH- There are many food restrictions when taking homoeopathic medicines.
FACT- Some patients are asked to abstain from raw onion and garlic, strong coffee, tobacco, as these substances may interfere with the action of certain homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines are absorbed from the tongue and inner lining of the mouth hence patients are asked not to eat or drink anything 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after taking the medicine.
MYTH- Homeopaths administer the same white pills to all the patients for all kinds of diseases. How can homeopathy act effectively?
FACT- Homeopathic doctors prescribe different medicines depending on the diseases. The sugar pills just act as a transport which helps the medicine reach inside the body. There are 3000 different dilutions in homeopathic medicines and doctors choose medicine from this range and administer in the body to heal individual diseases.
MYTH- Homeopathy only treats chronic diseases. It is not a medicine of acute diseases or emergency.
FACT- Homeopathic remedies also gives quick relief in acute cinditions like fever, cold and cough, pneumonia, diarrhoea, migraine, injuries etc. Correct observation and eliciting appropriate symptoms & a keen eye helps in prescribing for these acute conditions. But the true reason for this perception is because people mostly turn to homeopathy later, after years of treatment with conventional medicine, often when an illness becomes chronic.
MYTH- One cannot take conventional medicines when taking homeopathic treatment.
FACT- Most conventional medicines can be taken along with homeopathy. If there are any interactions with the medications, homeopathic physician will give the intructions as to how much time interval should be given between both the medicines.
