Homeopathy treatment or homoeopathy medicine is a medical system built on the principle that like cures like. It primarily uses potentised (extremely diluted) remedies to stimulate the body’s own healing functions. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek words homios (similar) and pathos (suffering), and the basis of the method is that like cures like. Homeopathy started to develop during the end of the 18th century, although some fundamental ideas have been known for a long time in Indian and Oriental Medicine. They have also been noted by historical medical personas like Hippocrates and Paracelsus.

Homeopathic herbal remedies or a homoeopathic remedy used in homeopathy are usually potentised, which means that they are diluted in several stages. Other remedies are used as well.
The theory behind the potentization is that the effectiveness of a remedy is inversely proportional to its main substance. The potency isn’t in the substance itself, but in its pattern, and the less there is of that substance the more powerful the pattern. This is explained by that energy is created and augmented through the rhythmic shaking of the solution when it is diluted.

 Many various remedies in 4 months!

Hello, i've started using homeopathy to treat irritable bowel syndrome symptoms + haemmorhoids. In the 4 month period, my doctor has prescribed like 10 remedies on and off, including nux vomica, sepia, psorinum, carbo vegetabilis.. the list goes on. there have been quite good periods, but sooner or later some of the symptoms would come back and, then, the doctor would change the remedies again... my question is: why can't i just go to medicines that have already worked in the past, how much longer can i be "playing" like that (given that some medicines make me feel REALLY bad, like ignatia and ac nitricum)? Thanks!

Indeed, Milisenta, no homeopathic medicine whatsoever! Not even in that detestable combination a la Sedatif PC! Mild herbal tea's in your situation with anise, camomille, st john's wort, centaury and some drops of propolis will be no problem.

Dear Dick, thank you and i will e-mail you. Thanks for your patience and giving new hope- so until then- if i have abdomen cramps or panic attacks- no medicine whatsoever?! this "Sedatif" homeopathic remedy seems to help from nervousness but if i understand you correcltly- it will just add up to the mess? Can i at least take herbal teas or something? Much-much appreciated!

Milisenta, you wrote: [...]"Also, if i take allopatic remedies to soothe down the unpleasant symptoms, they won't cancel out the positive things that homeopathy made?"

Yes of course they will!! But stay patient, because you are still a walking pre-allopathic/ post-homeopathic cocktail, if you get the picture.

Your case is pretty clear for me and know what to advice and precribe, but of no use if you do not give your constitution the time to "restore", because you met Dr. Mix.

Feel free and welcome to email me in 4-8 weeks, to go through your situation then.

Hoi. Dick
