Homeopathy: A holistic, natural treatment
Homeopathy is defined as holistic because it treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness. It’s not just a “bad liver” or “heart disease.” Instead, it explores and treats the person as a whole, resulting in a full-body wellness oftentimes not experienced or emphasized by traditional modern medicine techniques. Furthermore, homeopathy is natural because its remedies are produced according to the U.S. FDA-recognized Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States from natural sources. These can be vegetable, mineral, or animal in nature.
Acute vs. Chronic
There are two main categories of treatment in Homeopathic Medicine—acute and chronic. Acute treatment pertains to illness of recent onset. It may be self-limited (for example, the common cold), or it may progress and infiltrate other areas of the body if not treated (for example, pneumonia). In such an illness, the body might overcome the illness on its own—like a cold for example—but the appropriate medicine gently stimulates the body to recover more quickly and efficiently.
Meanwhile, chronic, or constitutional, represents the other main category of treatment. A chronic disease is, by definition, a long-standing or a recurrent health problem. Treatment length and the challenge to produce positive results is determined by several factors, including the nature of the problem, the early health history, the family medical history, the previous treatment, and the person’s inherent constitutional strength. With chronic treatment, the goal is to help the person to return to a state of well-being through individualized homeopathic treatment.
