Homoeopathy is a form of treatment founded by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century. According to the Society of Homeopaths, homeopathy is based on the theory of ‘treating like with like’ and observation that symptoms of an illness are identical to those experienced by a healthy person treated for that illness.
It’s based on two theories:
Homeopathy uses animal, plant, mineral, and synthetic substances in its preparations, generally referring to them using Latin or faux-Latin names. Homeopathic products are often made as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue; they may also be in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets. Homeopathic remedies are produced by diluting (watering down) an active substance that causes similar symptoms in the belief that this will reduce the likelihood of harm.
Homeopathy or homeopathic medicine originated in the 18th century as a holistic treatment system. Homeopathy is used to treat acute and chronic illnesses and is one of the trusted natural forms of medicine based on the principle that the body can cure itself.
Asian cultures believe that disease is caused by an imbalance of elements that make up the human body. Ayurveda recognizes five elements (Pancha bhuta) that make up the body. All five elements—air, fire, water, earth, ether—have to be in balance for the body to be healthy. Any form of illness causes an imbalance that affects an individual. Homeopathy medicines treat the whole individual by influencing the body’s regulatory mechanism to bring about complete healing rather than focussing on the diseased part or labelled sickness.
The purpose of homeopathy is to restore the body to its healthy state and the remedies are believed to stimulate the body’s own healing process.
Homeopathy is generally a safe treatment, as it uses medicines in extremely diluted quantities, and there are usually minimal side effects. Its non-toxicity makes it a good choice for the treatment of children.
Homeopathic medicines are safe to use as they rarely cause side effects. This means when used appropriately under the guidance of a qualified homeopath they can be taken by people of all ages, including babies, children and pregnant or breastfeeding women.
At Medstar, the best Homeopathy clinic in Dubai, our Homeopathy doctor treats patients with a holistic approach. The tailormade treatment is based on physical, psychological, and emotional characteristics and complaints.
Homeopathic Doctors have a different approach to the consultation. They like to get complete detail on the patient, during the case taking, about the general health, history of the patient, physical, mental and emotional levels apart from symptomatic questions. Sometimes, some symptoms are so subtle that the patient ignores them but the best homeopathy doctors in Dubai like to get to know the patient.
The first visit often includes a questionnaire detailing outpatients' medical and family history and a long interview with the Homeopathic Doctor in Dubai, who would ask more detailed questions depending on the questionnaire's responses.
At the end of the consultation, the homeopathic doctor will give you a prescription and advise you on how often to take medicine. Homeopathy is usually taken in tablets or pills but is also available in liquid form.
Classical homeopaths prescribe mostly single remedies rather than combinations keeping the medicine quantity to a minimum.
