Before getting into the big question that Why You Should Give Homeopathy A Try ? We’d like you to read this: Robin Sharma , the celebrated author , has put it succinctly and how , “Health is the crown on a well person’s head that only the ill person can see.” This is an enviable but a true statement which reminds us of the value of good health. We only miss it when we are sick and the daunting trips one makes to a clinic.
With the pandemic of Covid-19 unrelenting in its canter , it has compelled us to have a relook at our fitness regimes. Call it a will of providence , it has opened the doors of alternative medicines. Homeopathy is one of the oldest systems of medicine and perhaps the most reliable after allopathy but has somehow not figured in the list of priorities for us. We make an honest dissection of Homeopathy in the following discussion for the benefit of our readers to make a choice of their own.
What is Homeopathy ?
Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine focusing on holistic healing , prepared meticulously from special substances in diluted form and presented in globules , aimed to trigger the body’s internal healing process. It was invented by a German doctor Samuel Hahnemann in 1796. It’s practitioners are called homeopaths and the whole science is based on similia similibus curentur, like cures like. The Homeopathic medicines are termed as remedies and are rigorously diluted from the initial substances used to prepare it. In other words , a substance which if consumed in large amounts can cause sickness can , if taken , in small amounts cure the same. It was discovered as a matter of coincidence , when Hahnemann was searching for a way to control the inimical side effects of the medical treatment of his era that included poison as well. He undertook a lot of experimentation on himself and a group of healthy volunteers and found that with the reduction in dosage the toxicity of the medicine also reduced increasing the efficacy of the medicine.

Does it really help ? Understanding Really Why You Should Give Homeopathy A Try ?
Yes and there is good evidence to say the same. A 2007 study published in The Lancet had stated that it is followed by 100 million Indians , 10% of the population and remains a reliable source of treatment. In the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) it has come to light that 5 million adults and 1 million children used homeopathy use it annually and majority of them who use homeopathic products self-prescribe them for colds and musculoskeletal pain.
This is an inspiring figure that states the reliability this medicine has among the masses but there is still a lot of scope for improvement. The Homeopathic medicines are considered herbal and safe although some variants are derived from the animal kingdom , they are manufactured through a pharmaceutical process called ‘potentization‘ where the substance is diluted in the ratio 1:10 or 1:100 solution of distilled water, strongly shaken, diluted again, shaken again, and the entire process is repeated several times , as per a detailed report of 1993 by Dana Ullman MPH.
Is there harmony between allopathy and homeopathy ?
This is the real argument that we have begun which seeks to go into the heart of the problem. Over many decades , Homeopathy has been treated with contempt and disregard by its allopathic peers. Owing to the hyper-sophisticated usage of medical science and an astute lobby that has the wherewithal to take on any possible competitor that can challenge their so far undisputed market and presence , Homeopathy has not been spared of the ad hominem attacks and calumny. Be it giving it a bad press or mocking it down as a ‘pseudo-science’ , according to a 2010 House of Commons Science and Technology Committee report on homeopathy which alluded it to no better than placebos (dummy treatments) and implausible. It has not been able to make it big yet but there is a glimmer of hope that it is an idea who’s time has come.
Unfair assault by allopathic competitors
With an unfair assault by allopathic competitors on this noteworthy form of medicine , which drew praises from Gandhi, “Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other form of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical” but a denigration of modern medical science and its charter. It is time we revisit this vital form of medicine and place it back into the common parlance as it promises to have the answers for what the allopathy ignores.
We hope this really answers the question as to Why You Should Give Homeopathy A Try ?
