Homeopathy is a cure that is one of the oldest therapies to treat many conditions and diseases. It began over 200 years ago by a physicist who came from Germany. This is a type of treatment that does not involve any chemicals and drugs to help treat diseases. The medicines that are given in homeopathic treatment are free from any drug, chemicals or artificial additives.
The products of homeopathy habitually contain acute contents of herbal extracts, minerals and various other natural substances. The most common ingredients that are used in homeopathic medicine contain iron, mercury, magnesium and many other elements and minerals. These minerals and ingredients are so much diluted that they do not contain the original content in the homeopathic medicines. These medicines are very effective but they take a lot of time to show results. They are very different from allopathic medicines on account of their dosage and contents that they are made of.
Homeopathic medications are either consumed orally, or it is applied directly to the affected part. They are popular for treating various types of diseases and problems like common cold, swine flu, fever, hay fever, asthma, conjunctivitis, diarrhoea, cancer, dermatitis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, stress, migraine, headache, tension, arthritis, pain, motion sickness and several other conditions.
Although homeopathic treatments are considered very safe most of the medicines that are given in homeopathy are so attenuated that they are left with no active ingredients, due to which they do not cause any harm so much that homeopathic side effects are very rare. Moreover, the diluted form of the medicines have given no benefit and desired results to the patients. Because of this, homeopathy was deeply studied by some scientists, and it was also scientifically proven that it not that effective for certain conditions.
Later, it was analyzed properly which also showed similar results. The major reason that was discovered for homeopathy being ineffective was its low concentration and similar medicines for every type of disease. Although there is a dearth of high-quality confirmation about homeopathic products, and there are so many customers who believe blindly on the reliability of homeopathic treatments, it has not lost its appeal or demand in the market place.
Apart from being ineffective, there are many additional side effects that have also been discovered using homeopathy. There have been complaints about the consumers of homeopathic medication that it has worsened their condition, and they have experienced aggravation instead of remedial cure. It’s a myth considering homeopathy free from any side effects because if any medicine is given with an overdose or abnormal quantity, it will result in displaying unavoidable side effects. It is just that the side effects of homeopathy do not harm any person compared to medical drug treatments.
Common side effects that are often displayed are abnormal behavior, hypertension, too much stress, high fever and sometimes high energetic conditions in the patient. The only cure about this abnormality is that the remedy should be discontinued immediately or if the behavior is not too extreme, the dosage should be decreased. After adjusting the frequency and proper dose of the remedy these homeopathic side effects can be avoided.
