World Homeopathy Awareness Organisation (WHAO), a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, http://www.worldhomeopathy.org have put together 10 good reasons to use homeopathy:
1- NO HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS
A preparation process called potentisation removes all toxicity from each substance. It is safe for all ages and during pregnancy. However it is advised to be under the care of a qualified practitioner.
Healing through homeopathy is a gentle process and results are often powerful and long lasting.
Homeopathy considers and addresses the whole person. Often one or a succession of (single) remedies resolves all complaints.
Remedies usually cost surprisingly less than allopathic prescriptions and most herbs/supplements.
By boosting the immune system and overall health, homeopathy improves a person’s resistance to infections and possible illnesses.
6- NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS
Humans respond differently to medicine than animals. All homeopathic medication is tested on healthy humans.
7- EASY TO TAKE
Homeopathic medicines are given as small pleasant tasting pellets which dissolve in the mouth, through olfaction, or in liquid form. Granules, powders & drops are also available.
8- PATIENT INVOLVEMENT
A homeopath will ask many questions, not only about the symptoms which are bothering an individual, but also how they react to the condition and about their general health and lifestyle.
9- INVALUABLE FOR FIRST AID
Homeopathic medicines can be safely used anywhere to treat bruises, minor burns, sprains, insect bites, gastric upsets and more.
10- THE MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE
With over 3000 homeopathic medicines and new remedies being made all the time, homeopathy is a growing art. Unlike allopathic medicine which takes drugs off the market every year as new side- effects are revealed, homeopaths still use the same medicines they were using 200 years ago along with new medicines to broaden their scope.
There is now a UK register of homeopaths – rhom.co.uk
