It is now commonly recognized that the body does not just produce symptoms in order to show us that something is wrong. But actually these symptoms are the body’s and mind’s efforts to getting well again. Fever, inflammation, mucous or whatever is necessary are used to clear things up and help the body get well again.
A good example is when you have a cough. The cough is a useful symptom designed to force mucous out of the lungs with force so that more oxygen can be absorbed into the blood. It would therefore make no sense to purely give a cough suppressant whilst all that mucous just carries on sitting there. Much more helpful would be to take a remedy that helps the body’s efforts to clear the mucous until the job is done. This results in a long-lasting cure and a stronger robuster body.
My fellow homeopath Dana Ullman puts it well: “Homeopathic medicines are some of the most powerful natural drugs available to help augment the body’s ability to health itself.”
Contrary to what many people think, treatment with homeopathy can often result in fast results. This can especially be seen in acute cases such as when suffering from a headache, growing pains, coughing, stomach upsets etc. And in my experience, children usually respond to homeopathic treatment amazingly. A fever that can suddenly out of nowhere develop in children can just as quickly disappear with the help of the right remedy.
Of course if a person has been suffering with a particular problem for many years, and they are weak and exhausted and perhaps elderly, it is likely to take a longer time for the body/mind to heal.
This is something that is more than ever relevant today. With repeated treatment using antibiotics and other medications as well as environmental pollutants, insecticides on food etc., can all result in residual toxins being stored in the body. These toxins can interfere with the function of particular organ systems resulting in a slow deterioration in health.
It doesn’t need to be this way. The majority of illnesses that the average person suffers with can be treated really effectively with homeopathy without the need to revert to antibiotics and heavy drugs. Antibiotics can then be used as they should be i.e. in life-threatening emergency situations.
When you and your family are treated for illness using natural remedies, eat organically where possible and try to live happy fulfilled lives, I can guarantee that your level of health, energy and longevity will be increased a hundred fold!
