Homeopathy is a complete, holistic system of treatment for chronic and acute illness. Homeopathy is the second most widely used medicine in the world after western medicine. Homeopathy has been integrated into the national health care systems of many countries, including India, Mexico, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the United Kingdom.
While no-one, as yet, has developed a definitive explanation for how homeopathy works, recent studies are making significant headway. From an evidence based perspective we do know that from a meta analyses of RCT’s homeopathy has consistently performed higher than placebo. Most practitioners believe homeopathy works by gently stimulating a person’s natural healing energy to resolve illness, fight infection and regain health. Stimulating the body’s natural healing system/defences is a great option for babies, children and pregnant women and people who are immune suppressed rather than manipulating it with harmful chemicals. Homeopathy treats the person and the illness.
