Homeopathy Can Help Avoid Surgery In Some Cases
Homeopathy is not against surgery. Surgery is an art and science by itself. Surgery is called forth in the conditions where medicines have limited or no role, and where surgical aid, operation can cure or improve the condition. There are number of diseases which are labelled as ‘surgical’, where homeopathy works curatively and can avoid surgery. Some such ailments are: Septic recurrent Tonsillitis, Piles, Kidney & Biliary (small) stones, small size Uterine Fibroids, Ovarian Cysts, Warts, Corns, etc.*
Why Should One Use Homeopathy?
The symptoms are not the disease; they are the result of the disease. When the body is sick it tries to throw out the disease, the symptoms are the warning signs that you are sick.
For example, when your car’s brakes are failing, a warning light appears on the dashboard. This is like the symptom. It’s a good idea to fix the brakes rather than suppress the symptom by removing the bulb. Homeopathy treats the root cause of each illness, not the symptoms.
Misconception About Homeopathy: Does It Work Slowly?
The best results and full benefits of homeopathy are obtained if one resorts to it in the early phase of sickness. Ignorance and lack of awareness about the usefulness of homoeopathy in all kinds of diseases cause many patients to approach homoeopathy late.
This delay causes the disease process to progress to an advanced stage. Even then, homoeopathy offers effective treatment. Timely and well consulted homeopathy treatment provides effective and long lasting cure to mind and body.
Homeopathy Is A Steroid Free Treatment
Homoeopathy is a steroid-free treatment. However, if homoeopathy shows results faster than conventional treatment or in the area where conventional treatment has no answer, some practitioners or patient’s friends will tell the patients that they must be receiving steroids. This is a common allegation which every homeopath has faced in his/her practice.
Patients usually recover from their acute illnesses after a few doses of the medicine prescribed. This often causes patients to question if steroids are part of the medication. Most homeopathic practitioners, including me, make the medicine in front of the patients. Therefore, patients can be assured that steroids are not in the medicine prescribed. Homeopathic medication does not cause any side effects.

Healthy Aging & Homeopathy
Most old people want their normal physical and mental strength at this stage in their life. They want to carry out their daily routines without help. Homoeopathy treatment can help the elderly take care of everyday life problems and does no harm to their system. If old people were alert and physically fit it would increase their desire to live longer. They will enjoy life rather than be miserable.
Healthy aging is about much more than staying physically healthy – it is about maintaining your sense of purpose and your zest for life. As we grow older, we experience an increasing number of major life changes, including retirement, the loss of loved ones, and physical changes. How we handle these changes, as well as regular day-to-day stresses, is the key to aging well. With these tips for healthy aging, you can live with meaning and joy throughout your senior years.
Growing Old but Keeping Fit
Most people are scared or even terrified of old age because they feel that aging is characterized by a progressive loss of essential body functions like loss of vision, hearing, teeth, memory, intelligence, sexual drive, muscle strength and vigour.
Why do we grow old? According to a popular theory, free radicals damage cells, tissues and organs progressively and as we age the body’s ability to neutralize such damages wanes.
Coping with change
As you age, there will be periods of both joy and stress. It is important to build your resilience and find healthy ways to cope with challenges. This ability will help you make the most of the good times and keep your perspective when times are tough.
Focus on the things you are grateful for. The longer you live, the more you lose. But as you lose people and things, life becomes even more precious. When you stop taking things for granted, you appreciate and enjoy what you have even more.
Acknowledge and express your feelings. You may have a hard time showing strong emotions, perhaps feeling that such a display is inappropriate and weak. But burying your feelings can lead to anger, resentment, and depression. Don’t deny what you’re going through. Find healthy ways to process your feelings, perhaps by talking with a close friend or writing in a journal.
Accept the things you can’t change. Many things in life are beyond our control. Rather than stressing out over them, focus on the things you can control such as the way you choose to react to problems. Face your limitations with dignity and a healthy dose of humour.
Take daily action to deal with life’s challenges. When challenges seem too big to handle, sweeping them under the carpet often appears easier. But ignoring the problem doesn’t make it go away; it allows both the problem and your anxiety to build. Instead, take things one small step at a time. Even a small step can go a long way to boosting your confidence and reminding you that you are not powerless.
Your Diet as You Age
As you age, your relationship to food changes along with your body. A decreased metabolism, changes in taste and smell, and slower digestion may affect your appetite, the foods you can eat, and how your body processes food. The key is to figure out how to adapt to your changing needs. Now, more than ever, healthy eating is important to maintain your energy and health.
Load up on high-fiber fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Your whole digestive system is slower, so fiber is very important. Consume fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruit, and vegetables. They will help you feel more energetic and give you fuel to keep going.
Watch out for dehydration. Because of physical changes, older adults are more prone to dehydration. So make sure you are drinking plenty of fluid, even if you don’t feel thirsty. If you’re not getting enough water, you’re not going to be as sharp and your energy will suffer.
How is Homeopathy More Suitable for Elderly?
One can always slow down the progression of these elderly health issues, by leading a healthy lifestyle. Habits like smoking can lead to early manifestation of cataracts. Calcium deficiency in the diet can make a person prone to bone diseases. So, following a healthy diet and an exercise program can prolong and even prevent the occurrence of these elderly health issues. Other than providing a healthy life style, Homeopathic medicines also help in relieving age related complaints. With Homeopathy, the overall health condition of an elderly could improve; it could even address conditions associated with aging. Homoeopathy treatment can help the elderly take care of everyday life problems and does no harm to their system. If old people are alert and physically fit, it would increase their desire to live longer. They will enjoy life rather than be miserable.*
