Homeopathy Simplified, Demystified and Explained

Patients have a choice of choosing from Allopathy or Homeopathy!
Allopathy vs Homeopathy

Does Homeopathy work?

That’s a really good question. I am starting with it. Because there is already a lot of information on what is Homeopathy, how it works, etc. on the internet.

Coming back to our question, yes, Homeopathy does work! But for it to happen, one needs to have at least some belief in Homeopathy.

Many skeptics of Homeopathy believe that there is no treatment potential in Homeopathy. And it is just a placebo effect, although the truth is far removed from that. Homeopathic products act upon the mind-body axis in a very effective manner.

The vast number of celebrities who use and endorse Homeopathy is the biggest testimony to the effectiveness and success of Homeopathy. To name a few, the late Queen Elizabeth II, the current King Charles III of England, the Indian movie stars Ritesh and Genelia Deshmukh, and countless other celebrities throughout the world vouch for Homeopathy as the ‘to-go’ system of medicine!

Scope of Homeopathy

Homeopathic medicines are useful in a wide variety of medical conditions. Homeopathy is effective in the treatment of nearly all medical conditions. Some of these conditions are –

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Acne
  • Autism
  • Back pain
  • Barking cough
  • Bladder infection
  • Blood pressure
  • Body aches
  • Burns
  • Cough
  • Constipation
  • Cold
  • Congestion
  • Croup
  • Cold sores
  • Dry cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Side effects resulting from surgeries, etc.

Also, the number of Homeopathic medicines is huge and growing by the day. Some of the commonly used medicines are –

  • Apis mellifica
  • Arnica montana
  • Alumina
  • Belladonna
  • Bryonia alba
  • Bellis perennis
  • Cantharis
  • Causticum
  • Calcarea carbonicum
  • Chamomilla
  • Calendula
  • Cina
  • Conium maculatum
  • Dulcamara, etc.

Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) constitutes Homeopathy and all other systems of medicine other than Allopathy. even though it is the youngest system to come under complementary medicine, it is one of the most effective.

Honestly speaking, the disease does not matter at all in Homeopathy. That does not mean that no importance is given to pathology in Homeopathy. No, what I am trying to say here is that symptoms, and especially the ‘totality of symptoms’ is paramount here. Hence you might find certain Homeopathic Doctors offering even cancer treatments.

Homeopathic remedies probably utilize quantum energy fields. And molecules of the original medicine are probably retained as imprints in the memory of water molecules. Some of the remedies are highly diluted to such an extent that the medicines are not detected at all. As they have crossed even Avogadro’s limit!

That said, Homeopathy is mostly taught in naturopathic medical schools in the USA currently. Naturopathic medicine and naturopathic treatments offer effective treatment for diseases. Acupuncture, tai chi, etc. are some of the other treatment options considered by patients for the treatment of diseases. Naturopathic physicians or naturopathic doctors practice Homeopathy along with other naturopathic treatments.

Does Homeopathy have any side effects?

None! There are absolutely no side effects from Homeopathic medicines. Of course, one should visit a qualified Homeopathic Physician for Homeopathic treatment.

The reason I am mentioning this is there can be side effects in Homeopathy too if the medicines are incorrectly prescribed. However, these side effects are dynamic and not visible to the naked eye.

Although, about side-effects, the same cannot be said of modern health care. Modern health care is very effective in emergencies, acute conditions, etc. But it is fraught with unnecessary side effects. Some of these are anti-microbial resistance, and damage (especially from continued use) to vital organs like the liver, kidneys, etc.

Difference between Ayurveda and Homeopathy

Both systems of medicine come under CAM. Ayurveda is a centuries-old Indian traditional system of medicine while Homeopathy is relatively new. The latter was discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of Germany in 1790. He coined the term Homeopathy to differentiate it from Allopathy.

Out of all the alternative systems of medicine in India, Ayurveda has been receiving the greatest support since 2014. 2014 was the year when the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came into power in India.


This can be considered as the combination of electrical devices and Homeopathy. It is also called the Mattei cancer cure and was invented in the 19th century by Count Cesare Mattei. It is practiced by a few people in India. But it is not officially recognized like AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy).

Homeopathy too is no longer practiced the ‘classical’ way! You can read more about this and more on our website.

Integrated Medicine

This is the need of the hour. This term was coined by the American doctor Andrew Weil. He advocates the use of alternative medicines along with conventional (allopathic) medicines. Integrated medicine has been practiced in a few countries like China and Cuba.

For example, in China, Integrated medicine has been practiced by combining traditional Chinese medicine with Allopathic medicine. And not just that, they have successfully used it in controlling even serious diseases and pandemics. But this needs to be adopted by the rest of the countries too.

HomeoWealth is in the process of making Homeopathic treatment mainstream, accessible, and digitally available 24x7x365. It invites anyone interested in making this dream a reality. A few baby steps have been taken in this direction. But a lot still needs to be done.

For example, one of the major problems with today’s population is the confusion of simple ‘indisposition’ with the disease. Today’s patients are afraid of even a simple cold, cough, or fever. They are not totally to blame. What with the emergence of pandemics like the influenza (H1N1) pandemic of 2009 and the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020!

But people have to realize the dangers of consuming medicines indiscriminately without any regard for the side effects. Self-prescription is another dangerous trend. A qualified doctor is always the right person to consult and decide if any medicines are required at all! So worry less and live happily. Naturally and without side effects. May you all live happily and without unnecessary fears and phobias!
