Frequently Asked Questions About Homeopathy Treatment
Can Homeopathy treat XYZ disease?
In Classical Homeopathy , the treatment is based on the totality of symptoms and not on the disease name. The totality includes your current symptoms, past medical history, family medical history, general physical parameters like thirst, appetite, food desires & aversions, sensitivity to weather and temperature, and on your mental makeup. So the name of disease per se is neither a criteria nor a limiting factor for homeopathy treatment. Every disease can be treated with homeopathy.
Have you treated patients with same disease before?
Again it doesn’t matter. Homeopathy is individualistic therapy. That means 10 patients with, say migraine headache, can all get 10 different remedies based on their symptom totality. You are a unique individual and while many people can have the same disease, the totality will be different in each case.
How do homeopathy medicines work?
Well, scientists are still trying to pin-point the exact physical mechanism for it, but the clinical observation is that homeopathic medicines simulate the disease process to stimulate body’s own defence mechanism, leading to recovery/cure.
Is there any scientific research supporting homeopathy?
Tons of it! Not just on humans, but also on plants and animals. Check out the following links:

Do homeopathic medicines have any side effects?
A well-selected homeopathic remedy is not known to have any side effects. It is even safe for pregnant woman and infants.
I am diabetic. Can I take sweet homeopathic pills?
Yes, a few pills are not going to cause an increase in your diabetes. Rather if the medicine is well-indicated, it will only stabilise your sugar levels better.
Do homeopathic medicines contain steroids?
No. That is a MYTH. Homeopathy does not contain any class of medicine with active steroids. The sugar of milk, which is used for homeopathy medicines, is known to give a false positive test for some steroids. So when you are testing a homeopathy medicine for steroid content, test for proper steroids and not for reducing sugars.
Do homeopathy medicines increase the disease first before relief comes?
Usually NO. Any aggravation, if it happens at all, is mild and transient.
Can I eat onions, garlic, coffee etc with homeopathy?
Usually you can, but your doctor can only tell you if you need to avoid any food stuff after reviewing your case history.
Can I take homeopathy medicines for acute disease? I have heard they work slowly.
That, again is a MYTH. A well-selected homeopathy remedy works fast, often faster than other forms of medicine.
