FAQs

Is homeopathy slow to act?
This notion is largely incorrect. Homeopathy demonstrates swift and rapid action in acute cases, including viral fevers, colds, vomiting, diarrhea, and more. Conversely, when dealing with chronic conditions like arthritis, stomach ulcers, migraines, menstrual problems, skin ailments, allergies, and psychosomatic disorders, it may take time for the homeopathic medicine to fully manifest its effects. This is because chronic conditions have typically persisted for an extended period, requiring a longer duration of treatment to achieve significant improvement.

Is homeopathy good only for chronic complaints?
That is not entirely accurate. Homeopathy can be effective in treating both chronic and acute complaints. While it is true that homeopathy is often associated with treating chronic conditions, it can also address acute ailments such as colds, coughs, vomiting, diarrhea, colic, headaches, toothaches and more. Homeopathic remedies are known to provide swift and effective relief for these acute conditions while also working to reduce the likelihood of recurring episodes.

What to expect from the first homeopathic consultation?
During the first consultation, a homeopathic doctor will conduct a thorough case-taking, which typically lasts around 60-90 minutes for chronic conditions. In certain instances, when dealing with a chronic case, the homeopath might choose not to prescribe medication during the initial visit. This decision is made to allow for additional information gathering, such as details regarding the patient’s diet, lifestyle, and potentially necessary laboratory tests, which will aid in the accurate prescription of medicine. On the other hand, for acute conditions, the case-taking process will be of shorter duration.

Is homeopathy the same as placebo or faith healing?
Multiple clinical studies have provided evidence demonstrating the significant improvements observed with homeopathic medicines in comparison to placebos or faith healing. Accredited homeopathic institutions conduct clinical trials that are closely monitored by the Central Council of Research in Homeopathy.

How do homeopathic medicines work?
While treating a patient, homeopaths consider the “totality of symptoms.” This approach involves taking a thorough and comprehensive case history, particularly in chronic conditions. Homeopaths will inquire about every detail, no matter how small, in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s condition. While some patients may find this level of questioning intrusive, it is through this meticulous case-taking process that homeopaths can differentiate each case and determine the appropriate remedy. This exemplifies the holistic approach of homeopathy.

Are all homeopathic medicines round, white pills?
No, all homeopathic medicines are not exclusively, round, white pills. The white sugar globules or pills primarily serve as a medium or carrier for delivering the homeopathic medicine into the body. The liquid form of the medicine is then dispensed onto these sugar globules, which are typically made from lactose.

Does homeopathy have any dietary restrictions?
People on homeopathic treatment are typically permitted to consume onion, garlic, tea, coffee, and other substances. However, certain homeopathic medicines can be rendered ineffective by specific substances. Therefore, patients who are prescribed such medications are advised to limit or avoid certain items to ensure optimal efficacy.

Is it true that homeopathic medicines do not have any side-effects?
In general, homeopathic medicines do not have any side-effects, when the correct medicine is prescribed in the appropriate potency. However, when prescribed arbitrarily or without proper consideration, they may not be effective and can also show ill-effects.

Are there are any limitations of homeopathy?
Homeopathy is effective in treating a broad range of disorders, both acute and chronic. However, in advanced cases of cancer, metabolic syndromes, accidents, and acute emergencies, homeopathic medicines may not always yield the desired results. Similar to any other medicinal system, homeopathy also has its own set of limitations.
