Homeopathy is a therapeutic method which involves treatment using remedies made primarily from metal salts, second and third animal substances from plants.
That said, what difference is there between homeopathic medicines and the doctor prescribed? The difference lies in that the usual drugs act chemically on the body, while homeopathic products do so informative only, that is to say without using the internal biochemical processes.
I will try to explain what it means to "act in an informative manner". In each drug, such as magnesium or calcium preparations, there is a certain amount of these products, say a gram. Everything else is tying product neutral. In homeopathic preparations made from the same product, the active substance (eg magnesium or calcium or calcium magnesium phosphoricum carbonicum) is not a gram per pill but often only one molecule, all the rest being composed of only neutral tying product.
Not bad, is not it? The doctor prescribed the patient a molecule three times daily before meals. Most interesting however is that in very many cases, a single molecule is as effective and sometimes more effective than high dose of the same product. The question then arises of why pharmaceutical factories do not they make drugs as a molecule added to a binder neutral, instead of wasting in compressed per gram in the pills? The answer is that for some it works with this, and for others with this.
This is not only the dose differentiates homeopathy pharmacology. The destination preparations also differs largely.
Take for example caffeine. It is well known that caffeine has stimulating properties, it is not recommended before bedtime to consume coffee or other caffeine-containing products, otherwise we will not get to sleep anytime soon. At least that's the experience we have in everyday life and also what teaches pharmacology. In homeopathy, it is precisely the opposite is true. Cons insomnia are prescribed specifically caffeine (naturally in a homeopathic dose) that must be ingested before bedtime. And this has nothing to an absurdity, a "twisted logic", but is based on the principle of the founding father of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann - "Similia similibus curantum" - "Heal similar by similar ". If you see a homeopath for a "thyrotoxicosis", it will prescribe iodine, and if you send them for symptoms of poisoning by arsenic, will cure arsenic.
For a general practitioner, regardless of whether the patient is good or bad, what is the color of his hair, if ordered or not. He prescribed pills cons cough and goodbye. Conversely, the homeopath before prescribing anything, gets unconditionally "to delve into the soul of the patient" and asks him "stupid": "What time are you calm or stressed? "" Are you able to calm down quickly? "" If you get angry with your spouse, you tend to break dishes or rather to keep your anger in you?"
Why such information is needed? Since there are also homeopathic "dragees cons cough": they are prescribed and the problem is resolved. Indeed, there are, but frankly, the various homeopathic preparations do not act uniformly on various types of people. The homeopath chooses among the remedies "against cough" that which is suitable for a given patient, and not all those who are coughing.
