What is homeopathy and how is it used in medicine? Homeopathy is a natural, safe, and gentle system of healing that can help your body restore its energy and relieve problematic symptoms, improving your overall health. It is extremely safe to use and has advantages over traditional medicines, including better affordability and less side effects. It is also FDA regulated. Homeopathic medicines, also called “remedies” can be used to treat both acute illnesses (i.e. colds, ear infections, sore throats, migraines), as well as chronic conditions (i.e. colitis, asthma, depression, arthritis). They are made from natural sources and hence environmentally friendly and very safe in use- even among pregnant/nursing women, infants, and children. Usually the dosages are so small that they are completely non-toxic. It is worth noting that while homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, or other types of natural medicines. while simple conditions can be treated safely at home using homeopathy, one should get a professional involved to treat serious or life-threatening conditions. How does homeopathy work? Homeopathy is based on a rule of nature called the Law of Similars. This law states that “like cures like,” so that a medicine can equally act as a cure for a condition that it causes, as long as it is used in micro-doses. When you peel an onion, you typically get itchy or watery eyes. So, during a cold or allergy attack, a homeopathic micro-dose of Allium cepa (red onion) might assist the healing process. Homeopaths will choose a remedy that supports the symptoms rather than opposing them. The symptoms are actually the body’s healthy attempt to restore its own balance! Conventional medicine might give an anti-histamine “to oppose” cold or allergies, which often comes with unpleasant side effects such as drowsiness or constipation. However, a homeopathic remedy has no side effects and restores a person to health naturally. There is no “one size fits all” approach in homeopathy – every person exhibits his or her disease slightly differently, so every remedy chosen matches the unique symptom profile of that individual . Homeopathy also seeks to give just enough remedy for the person to stimulate their own healing response – a form of active, rather than passive, healing. Homeopathy is widely practiced worldwide –by over 500 million people, according to the World Health Organization estimate. Believe it or not, around 1900 about twenty percent of doctors in the United States were homeopaths. However, due to various political and social changes, homeopathy became more obscure in the US until recently. There is wider acceptance of homeopathy in such countries as France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, India and Great Britain. In fact, the family doctor to England’s Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician. What should you expect at a homeopathic practitioner visit? Your initial visit for a homeopathic consultation might last one hour. The homeopath will review your full medical history and get a clear idea of all of your symptoms – mental, emotional, and physical. Then a homeopathic medicine will be chosen to match your unique symptom profile. The cost of a first visit can vary and range from $150 to $500 depending on factors such as the area of the country you live and the skills of the practitioner. But at Amita Holistic Healing Center it cost only $150. Be sure to ask your health insurance if they might cover or reimburse you for all or part of the costs. How does homeopathy fit in with AmitaUSA.com model for health care? At Amita Holistic Healing Center, we use a wide range of homeopathic treatments for acute and chronic conditions. But, we also practice what we call Integrated Medicine – that is, combining the best elements of homeopathy with other different types of non-traditional medicine, to elicit the best outcomes in terms of overall body health. For example, in addition to homeopathic remedies, we also make use of acupuncture, micro-current, reflexology, laser treatment, and Reiki, among other treatment modalities. Dr. Yakovleva has extensive experience and training in all of these different areas, and uses the best features of each to provide a unique care plan for each individual and his or her symptoms. For example, your treatment plan for a chronic condition such as colitis might include homeopathic remedies as well as use of micro-current and acupuncture. There are not too many Integrated medical facilities in New York, let alone those that combine all of these unique forms of holistic and traditional medicine. Amita Holistic Healing Center stands apart because of its focus on total body wellness and individual healing – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
