Several types of diseases, chronic or acute, can be treated effectively with homeopathy. Unfortunately, people tend to go to a homeopath only when the acute problem becomes chronic, that is, it becomes more severe and difficult to treat. They choose homeopathy when other systems of medicine fail to treat or completely cure their medical condition, most often in cases like arthritis, asthma, rare skin conditions, etc. These cases naturally take longer to treat, even with any other system of medicine. For acute ailments like fever, diarrhea, acute cold, cough, etc., homeopathic remedies act as fast as conventional medicines, sometimes even faster. In certain cases, these remedies produce results even quicker than other forms of therapy.
Homeopathic medicine can provide relief in both acute as well as chronic illnesses. It provides quick and effective relief in acute ailments like fever, diarrhea, acute cold, cough, etc. It works well for child health problems related to memory, growth, and immunity. Homeopathy offers relief to women’s health issues like PCOD, PMS, menopause, etc. It works well for hair loss, thyroid, and obesity, and has proven to be effective in the treatment of chronic cases of skin disorders, arthritis, asthma, diabetes and many others. Thus, homeopathy provides a safe and effective cure for a majority of ailments, except those which need emergency care and surgery.
Surgery is necessary for conditions where medicines have limited or no scope. There are a number of diseases which are labeled as ‘surgical’, where homeopathy works curatively and can even avoid surgery in some cases. Some examples of such ailments are septic recurrent tonsillitis, piles, some cases of appendicitis, certain cases of kidney stones, small-sized uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, warts, corns, etc.
Homeopathy has also worked well as a useful adjuvant therapy in post-operative care, or after surgical procedures like bypass surgery. The homeopathic medicine Arnica is a medicine of choice in such cases.
