How Homeopathic Healing Works

Why use conventional medicine when homeopathic remedies can offer great results?

What is homeopathy? Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat "like with like"; that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. The goal is to trigger the body's natural system of healing. One major difference with homeopathic medicines from conventional medicine, however, is that these substances are used in ultra high dilutions.

Homepathic medicines can be used for allergies, bruising, swelling, colds, etc. If you are looking to boost your immune system or heal an ailment in a more natural way, opt for a homeopathic remedy before reaching for more conventional medicine.

Homeopathy is even being used now by those making changes to their appearance. Each year, nearly 1.6 million Americans opt for surgical cosmetic procedures.

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, it was learned that homeopathy can help those who are recovering from cosmetic surgery. Those who took homeopathic Arnica prior to surgery and during the recovery phase had less bruising. Calendula is also another well-known homeopathic treatment that can be used post-surgery to heal. A Homeopathic Practitioner can help you decide what remedies are best for you, or shop a local health food store for available options.

Homeopathy is JUNK science. People who think homeopathy actually works, also think that there were no special effects used in Harry Potter. I cannot believe that this crap even passes muster as opinion, since it is so far removed from reality. Don't try to use actual scientific and statistical terms such as double blind studies until you have actually studied basic science. No wonder the US is rated so low in actual education.

I have used homeopathic medicines and have had results. I have never in my life taken an antibiotic or been on any kind of "man-made drug". Healthy as can be! To dispute, I have "actually studied basic science" and much, much more, and I do know that there were special effects used in Harry Potter. I've even read all of the books, in case that matters to you. What don't you like about a natural approach? Have you ever tried any homeopathic remedies? What don't you like about them? Arnica works great and is often recommended by Plastic Surgeons post-op. Traumeel, a natural pain relief formula, is often recommended by Physical Therapists to ease sore muscles and joints. And what's wrong with natural oils and aromatherapy? I'm really not sure why they would be so offensive.

LH, keep believing in what you know to be helpful and natural. Patiently share your knowledge with others. Some people will be open and others will not. Don't let people's negative responses discourage you. I don't know much about homeopathic medicines but I have experienced the benefits of Arnica and would like to know more.
