The place of homeopathy in the medical field

System of alternative medicine is not recognized in the scientific community to treat patients with agents highly diluted, Homeopathy is sometimes difficult to be recognized as a form of therapy. But what is really his place in the medical field? Indeed, the homeopath justifies rigorous training to complement that of medicine.

This feature tends to emphasize the importance of homeopathy in the medical field, but also to meet the requirement of knowledge for the prescription of homeopathic medicines. Indeed, the training course in homeopathy is nowadays carried out within private schools, but also in universities (faculties of medicine or pharmacy): This is actually a cycle of "Training Continuing Medical "which became an important place in various countries. Over a period of two years studies in homeopathy vary from 150 to 200 hours or 1200 hours over a period of three years for some countries, while linking theory with practice, that is to say , teaching the basics to clinical practice, and are often the subject of proposals for medical graduates.

Unlike post-graduate specializations (including that of the veterinarian or pharmacist), homeopathy requires knowledge of "homeopathic materia medica" (symptoms, most common indications requiring the prescription of homeopathic medicines), prescription strategies without forgetting rules related to dosage, manufacturing, pharmacology of homeopathic medicine, and finally, homeopathic clinic, the examination of the patient, but also the place of homeopathy in various diseases.

Homeopathy medicine

If homeopathy is becoming more and more attention in the medical field, it must be stressed that its success can not be separated from that of medicine. Usually, specialists in homeopathy challenge this membership for fear of similarities that could be harmful, despite the fact that it is approved, or even desired. For that reason, we now have commercials homeopathic medicines which demonstrate the confidence of patients who often use alternative therapies. Meanwhile, for those who do not really consider the virtues of homeopathy, one realizes that the evolution of medicine has still not fully responded to certain disabilities or even some causes of mortality.

If on homeopathy in the medical field, some speak of "illusion" or "quackery" and others "natural" medicine which would not result in pain and do not bully the body, homeopathy appears today as a medicine against the harsh medicine. But what is a "medicine" in reality? And what is meant by "natural medicine"? These are questions to which answers are still missing. Meanwhile, for those who recognize the obvious virtues of homeopathy (which seem sometimes subjective), it is certain that in addition to socio-psychological factors contributing to the rise of alternative medicines, they have already made a place for this method of therapy in the medical field.
