Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine, where the diagnosis takes into consideration the physical and emotional characteristics of the patient. Its therapeutic method is based on the idea that the diseases’ symptoms should be fought with reduced doses of medicines that produce similar symptoms in healthy individuals. It means that homeopathy follows the principle of “like cures like”.
Many people mix up homeopathy and herbalism. Actually, herbalism is a medicinal treatment based on the use of plants and plant extracts, in the form of capsules, tinctures, teas, etc. On the other hand, homeopathy has remedies that come from plants, but also from animals and minerals. Besides, the preparation techniques are completely different.
In homeopathy there is not such a thing as a strong or weak medicine. There is the adequate medicine. The specialist chooses potency according to the symptoms and characteristics of the patient. The facility of homeopathic treatments is that it does not have side effects or adverse reaction.
Contrary to allopathic drugs that act directly on the physiological processes related to the disease symptoms, homeopathic medicines promote an improvement on the general health of the individual. The homeopathic medicine Canova® acts stimulating the immune system, triggering adequate responses to each situation.
Homeopathy is experiencing a rebirth worldwide. The interest in homeopathy, from patients and health professionals, is growing considerably, and there are no signals that this interest will decrease.
With a growing number of people wanting a more important role on their own health, and recognizing the limitation of conventional medicine, homeopathy will keep on growing. Homeopathy cannot cure everything or everyone; however its capacity to provide safe, effective and low-cost treatments will take it into a very important position in health treatments in the 21st century.
