What are Homeopathic Remedies and Homeopathy?
Homeopathic Remedies are based on an integrated approach to health and well-being that addresses specific illnesses by stimulating the body's ability to heal.
Homeopathy is based on a medical system established in Europe. It has been used in the United States since the late 19th century. Homeopathy is based on the principle of "like treats like" or the "Law of Similars," which states that if an herb, extract, or another natural substance is consumed in large quantities. If a specific set of symptoms occurs, then that same ingredient in micro-doses will stimulate the body to fight against those symptoms, thereby healing the body.
The premise of homeopathic medicine is similar to getting a vaccination, whereby a minute amount of medication or vaccine is introduced to the body, thereby stimulating a healing response. Homeopathic remedies heal the symptoms of an affliction; in contrast, vaccination is used to cure or mitigate a disease.
For an example of homeopathic practice, red onions (Allium cepa) can make your eyes water, give you a runny nose, sneezing, and even an itchy throat after cutting them. Therefore, red onion(Allium cepa) is often used as a homeopathic remedy in very dilute homeopathic potency to combat these symptoms stemming from mild allergies, coughing, runny nose, or even the common cold.
How do I understand the potency and dilutions of a homeopathic medicine?
Homeopathic medicines are recognized with the statement by their potency, demonstrated after the ingredient; for example, Thuja Occidentalis 6X with the designation H.P.U.S.
H.P.U.S. means the ingredient is monographed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States, and its possible dilutions are outlined there. Following homeopathic practice, use the proper succussion (vigorous shaking) methods outlined by potencies designated by a letter and number (for example, 1X, 2X, 6X, 12C, or 200CK, etc.).
The letter refers to the proportions used in each dilution in the series. (The Roman numeral X means “10”, and the Roman number C means “100”), in some cases, no molecular traces of the original raw ingredients may be left in the final sucussed product.
Examples of homeopathic dilutions:
|X Scale||C Scale||Ratio|
