What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of complementary medicine, based on observations of natural healing over thousands of years. Homeopathy is based on laws of nature and has been used successfully for over 200 years. It was formalized into a scientific treatment modality in 1796 by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Dr. Hahnemann documented that the underlying cause of disease was solved by preparing all-natural remedies. These remedies are made by repeatedly diluting and potentizing active homeopathic ingredients.
The "like cures like" principle says that a sick person can be cured by taking very small amounts of ingredients that cause their pain. As an example, Nux Vomica is an ingredient in a few of their products (most notably TRP's Fibromyalgia Relief). Nux Vomica is a poisonous flower, but with a small amount that has been diluted, it may help symptoms such as sleeplessness or irritable bowels (TRP's Irritable Bowel Syndrome Therapy). Another example is salicylic acid which causes ringing of the ears in a toxic overdose and in a microdilution, triggers relief of the same symptoms (TRP's Ring Relief).Understanding Homeopathic Drug Potency
A principle tenent of homeopathy is the observation that the medicine is more effective as the active ingredient(s) are diluted and potentiated. Because many homeopathic ingredients are potent, volatile, and sometimes even harmful in their most natural form, they dilute the substance enough to maintain their healing properties while still making them safe for human consumption. On a drug ingredient panel, the active ingredient will be followed by a number, then a "C" or an "X". This number ("12X") represents how many times the ingredient has been diluted and potentized.What's the Difference Between Homeopathy and Conventional Medicine?
It is generally accepted that there are three types of treatments available:
- Manipulative - That is to directly impose change on tissue or function, usually via drugs or surgery
- Replacement - That is to replace necessary elements such as tears, hormones or insulin.
- Regulatory - That is to prompt the body's immune/self regulating (mechanisms of homeostasis) system as with immunizations, allergy desensitization acupuncture and homeopathy.
What's the Difference Between Herbs and Homeopathy?
There are a number of differences between herbs and homeopathy:
First, the targeted therapeutic mode of action of the two is completely opposite. Herbs provide a natural pharmacologic and/or nutritional effect. Homeopathic medicines attempt to trigger the body's self regulating mechanisms to respond with its own capabilities to heal itself or regain balance. Second, the methods of preparing the remedies are very different. Herbalists utilize that actual plant in material doses. Homeopaths utilize mico-dilutions.
Third, in prescribing the remedies Herbalists utilize a rich history (even thousands of years) of experience, pharmacologic data (alkaloid x vasoconstricts, etc.) and established formulas to achieve the desired effect. Homepathy uses a strict scientific set of rules to determine which remedy is indicated for which symptom/condition utilizing the "Law of Similars", or "Likes Cures Like" as the guideline. Its remedies are processed and regulated (in the U.S.) by the FDA according to the strict guidelines of the Homepathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
Is Homeopathy Regulated?
All homepathic remedies are regulated in the United States by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), according to the strict guidelines of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. All active homeopathic ingredients listed in the required "drug facts panel" which are appended with the acronym "HPUS" must be manufactured according to the strict guidelines of the homeopathic pharmacopoeia of the United States, the guiding reference for the FDA's regulating of homeopathic medicines.
Can Homeopathic Medicines Be Taken in Conjunction With Other Medications?
Every case is different, so they would recommend consulting with your health care provider first. However, homepathic medicines are safe, have no known side effects, and are often used in conjunction with other medications. Many people have used homeopathy treatments as complementary with other treatments.
