WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine that was developed by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, in the late 18th century. He learned of Hippocrates’ concept that ‘like cures like’, that is, a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person – a ‘similar’ – can cure those symptoms in a sick person. He believed that the similar stimulated the body to remove the cause of the illness. Remedies were chosen to ‘match’ the symptoms eg: if the person has nausea, a remedy is chosen which can produce nausea in a well person.
As many of the medicines at that time were potentially toxic, Hahnemann diluted them, and found that specially diluted and shaken preparations were effective, and greater dilutions could give stronger effects. Thus dilution and shaking of remedies, called ‘potentisation’ was added to the system.
A parallel concept applies today where a very small dose of virus is used as a vaccine to stimulate the body to produce antibodies and develop resistance to the specific infection.
Over time homeopathy became a very popular system of alternative medicine, especially in Europe, where homeopathic doctors continued to develop the tradition by adding new remedies and new approaches.
Results depend on how often the homeopathic remedy is taken, not on the quantity used. The usual dose is a few drops or a small tablet, taken several times daily. As the amount consumed is not relevant, children are treated in the same way as adults.
Homeopathic preparation – Each tablet contains:
6X refers to the potency that is achieved through repetitive dilution and succession according to homeopathic principle. In this case, ‘X’ refers to a 1 in 10 dilution, 6 times over.
