Complex Homeopathy

Complex homeopathy is a therapeutic method which clinically applies the Law of Similars and which uses medicinal substances in weak or infinitesimal doses. Homeopathy is a form of medicine that is not habit-forming; nor does it cause side effects, as is frequently the case in conventional medicine.

How does complex homeopathy work?

Homeopathic physicians consider it better to treat the sick person rather than the disease. The orthodox Homeopath will sit with his patient for one or two hours, soliciting information on how the patient feels throughout his entire body and mind. Once the doctor has a picture of the whole person, he consults the Materia Medica to find the one best remedy for all of the symptoms. Because homeopathic doctors look at patients as whole persons, rather than a series of symptoms or carriers of a disease, they often prescribe different remedies for patients suffering from the same disease. This makes controlled studies problematical, but basic principles of homeopathy indicate clearly why this must be so. The remedies which are made come from an animal, vegetable, chemical and mineral sources. However, the end product contains only minute amounts of the original sources.

Drugs like morphine, cocaine and arsenic can also be used, but in their diluted forms to render them marvelously effective for good. Even substances which in their natural states have little or no obvious effect on the human body (i.e. sand, charcoal, common salt, etc.) develop powerful healing properties when matched with the right patient and after being diluted and potentized.

Homeopathy is essentially natural healing. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body to resist negative toxins and thereby heal itself. Adequate rest, appropriate diet, and a satisfactory environment will also support recovery. Rapid results can be achieved in acute illness, but if the patient’s vitality is low, long-term treatment may need to be undertaken. Sometimes irreversible bodily changes have already taken place. In these cases, other forms of medical or surgical treatment may be necessary to give the patient a fresh start. Then homeopathy will help prevent deterioration or recurrence.

Things you should know about Complex Homeopathy

Complex Homeopathy accomplishes its best outcomes when single cures are endorsed each one in turn for medical issues. With some type of practice, this is something you can figure out how to do yourself for those minor yet irritating objections that trouble you and your family. Additionally, the utilization of multicomponent solutions was created as a strategy to address the many-sided quality of ailment techniques. Now let’s talk about the remedies and how they are utilized.

What Are the Advantages of a Complex Remedy?

A complex is a blend of homeopathic cures in the one container. It might likewise be known as a mix cure. The remedy can be helpful for minor or intense medical issues when the required single cure is obscure.

Normally when you are uncertain of which single homeopathic solution for use for your issue. They won’t connect with different prescriptions and are protected and easy to utilize.

Generally well tolerated and have very few side effects. They are mostly used for severe medical conditions such as colds and are well suited for self-healing purposes.

Are there limitations of a complex remedy?

Complex can help however just if the cure you need is in the blend. If not, the Complex won’t hurt you but rather it won’t help either. The remedies are intended for basic diseases, for example, movement disorder, colic, influenza, minor sprains, and etc. They are not appropriate for chronic pain or repeating medical issues that are greatly improved off with the cautious administration of a homeopath.

Complex Homeopathy may be taken temporarily. On the off chance that your signs don’t enhance by 5 measurements, quit taking the Complex as the cure you need is not in the blend. Now you ought to see a qualified homeopath for the one that is best for your side effects. As your symptoms enhance, the measurements of the Complex ought to be taken just as required. Also, when change slows down or side effects begin to return. In other words, more is worse with homeopathy so don’t take pointless dosages.

Law of Similars & History of Homeopathy

The Law of Similars states: A pharmacologically active substance administered to a person in good health triggers a series of symptoms. When these same symptoms appear in a sick person they can be cured by administering the same substance in a microdose. A very common example of this is Ipecac. When by the medical practices of the day, which often did more harm than good, that taken in a large dose Ipecac causes vomiting; when taken in a very small dose it is one of the best remedies for nausea and vomiting.

This principle was known to two ancient physicians, Hippocrates (400 B.C.) and Paracelsus (1493), but it was not until the last quarter of the 18th century that it was actively investigated.

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of Germany was so appalled he gave up his medical practice to explore other alternatives. In 1790, while translating the writings of the Scottish doctor, Cullen, Dr. Hahnemann was drawn to an article discussing quinine. While attempting to prove Dr. Cullen’s homeopathic theory incorrect, Dr. Hahnemann learned that by taking large amounts of cinchona bark (from which quinine is taken) fever attacks would occur. Fever attacks and other symptoms were exactly what quinine cured when given in small doses. Thus, Dr. Hahnemann became a believer of the theory he had set out to disprove.

The path toward a new solution

Dr. Hahnemann continued to experiment and was able to verify that the reaction he observed with quinine could be repeated with other substances. Hahnemann told others of his discovery and they joined him in experiments called provings. Provings consisted of taking small doses of reputedly poisonous or other medical substances and carefully noting all the symptoms they produced. Patients suffering from similar symptoms were then treated with these same substances in minute doses, with outstanding results.

The theory was no longer a coincidence but could be stated as a valid law. Having established the Principle of Similarity, Hahnemann worked to discover the smallest effective dose. He realized that this was the best way to avoid side-effects. To his surprise he found that the more the remedy was diluted, the more active it became while dissimilar remedies were ineffective. He called his method of dilution potentization and numbered the potencies to indicate the dilution ratio. This paradox, that a lesser amount could be more effective than a larger dose of the same substance, was unacceptable to the scientific community in Hahnemann’s time. He and his followers were ridiculed, but homeopathy survived because it achieved remarkable results.

Provings (or pathogeneses) with the various substances were always done on healthy subjects, and all reactions were recorded. The first compilation of provings was published in 1810 as The Organon (The Art of Healing) by Hahnemann. Other doctors have continued Hahnemann’s work and today’s Homeopathic Materia Medica makes the records of years of provings available to homeopathic physicians.

In summary, homeopathy is a form of medicine that assists the body in healing itself. It does not reject the great discoveries of modern medical science, only their commercial abuse. Homeopathy has stood the test of time, helping people achieve health not only in the last 150 years but since its discovery 2000 years ago.
