RapidCure Blog quick response from homeopathy   Amazing Homeopathy
 
 

Homeopathy is a safe and effective medical system for treatment of most day to day maladies. The drugs being cheap and easily stored seem ideally suitable for `first-aid'. However, Dr.Samuel Hahnemann the founder of Homeopathy was against this idea since prescribing homeopathic medicines involve certain technicalities which may be beyond the understanding of the lay man. The dosage and strength of the homeopathic prescription is based on certain technicalities called `Susceptibility of the patient' and the nature of the disease - i.e. `Acute' or `Chronic'. This is besides the fact that the patient may not be able to differentiate the insidious onset of a very serious disease from an innocuous ailment.

Having said this, there is undoubtedly an area where-in the patient cannot be expected to go in search of medical aid for those small niggling ailments which he is at the mercy of, at every seasonal change or sudden exposure to dust and stress. Headaches, Colds and coughs, early fevers which have the bad habit of setting in at night when the family physician is unavailable, or while travelling are especially troublesome and leave the patient wishing he had an `emergency kit'. I do give some basic and commonly used medicines to my patients for home use with explicit instructions to wait not more than 2 days before consulting me. The following table may be of some use as first aid to patients who would like to carry a kit for use in certain intractable situations.

how it works
Homeopathy is a much maligned system of medicine only because it is not understood in its entirety. Modern medicine or `allopathy’ (nomenclature used by Dr.Hahnemann) leans heavily on today’s science to explain its methodology.
