Choosing Homeopathy for Children
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that utilizes minute doses of carefully selected ingredients made from plants, mineral sources and many other natural substances, to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. Its strength lies in its marked effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, and physical levels. Homeopathy recognizes the inseparability of body and mind. It treats the person as a whole and not just the illness. Homeopathy believes in a holistic, totalistic, and individualistic approach. Homeopathy works on the principle of “Similia Similibus Curenter” which means, “Let Like be cured by Likes”, derived from the Natural Law of Nature. In this the medicine administered to the diseased individual is such that if given to a healthy person it produces a similar disease as found in the diseased individual. Thus when the pathogenesis of the medicine matches with the symptoms of the diseased person, this medicine is called the “Similimum” which certainly leads to a restoration of health. Unlike any other system of medicine, the remedies used in Homeopathy have been previously proved on healthy human beings therefore their actions and reactions are fully known to the Homeopaths. This makes Homeopathy the true and rational art of healing.
Homeopathy is growing in popularity all over the world because its medicines are gentle, non-toxic, and harmless. This makes Homeopathy safe to use when many other types of treatments may not be recommended, such as in case of newborns, children and during pregnancy
