Homeopathy Addresses Individuals, Not Medical Labels
As a medical art and science, homeopathy focuses on an individual and his or her characteristic symptoms. This individualistic focus takes into account the “whole” person; the mental, emotional and physical characteristics and symptoms. This approach differs from traditional medicine which groups people into pathological terms such as psoriasis, acid reflux, migraine headache, etc. Given the “holistic” approach that homeopathy takes, the pathological medical term provided by traditional medicine does not determine the homeopathic remedy for a given condition. Three people suffering from headache pain could each receive a different homeopathic remedy for relief. This is because each person’s unique experience of headache pain could indicate a different remedy. Homeopathy takes a very precise look at a particular condition and seeks a remedy that will best match that condition picture.
That being said, medical and pathological terms do have value to homeopaths; they help to provide common language and direction to the homeopath in approaching a case.
Comprehensive System of Medicine
Homeopathy is a comprehensive medical system used in a wide range of health conditions. The following is a partial list of common ailments addressed by homeopathy:
- Skin problems
- Digestive issues
- Respiratory conditions
- Chronic Stress
- Sleeping difficulties
- Auto-immune disorders
- Neurological conditions
- Environmental sensitivities
- First aid injuries
Many health conditions that do not require emergency care can be addressed with homeopathy. Any life-threatening or urgent condition is best treated by traditional medicine. Once the crisis has been stabilized, then homeopathic care can begin or continue.
When to use natural treatment and when not to use it is an important consideration. It is recommended to have a regular medical check-up to detect any dangerous condition.
