Homeopathy is one of the most preferred methods of Alternative Medicine across the world. Homeopathy benefits all age groups and can be very beneficial to the elderly as it fulfills all the parameters required for being an ideal system of medicine for Geriatric care.
Homoeopathy was established about 200 years by a German Physician named Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on the ‘Principle of Similars’. Homoeopathy believes in treating patients holistically, medications are specific to the individual, rather than diseases. Homoeopathy is a safe effective and scientific system of Medicine and is one of the leading alternative medicine systems of the world today.
How Can Homeopathy Help & When
Homoeopathy is effective in treating a wide range of diseases from acute inflammations to raging epidemics, from chronic degenerative illness to deep-seated mental and emotional disturbances and, it is safe, non-toxic, gentle, and also cost-effective.
A recent study conducted found that the severity of the complaints demonstrated substantial improvements following homeopathic treatment. Homeopathic medical therapy may play a beneficial role in the long-term care of older adults with chronic diseases. Of all the specialties of medicine, geriatrics is a branch which needs a holistic approach; it is also a branch where modern medicine has openly accepted its limitations. Here diagnosis and investigations constitute a small part of the therapeutic process. The need is to understand the person and his/her surroundings and their socio-cultural background. Along with medication, auxiliary and ancillary measures like diet, exercise, physiotherapy, group activities, support also are the mainstays of treatment.
Homoeopathy fulfills all the parameters required for being an ideal system of medicine for Geriatric care. Also, the cost effectiveness of homeopathy is much more compared to all other systems of medicine. Homeopathy can handle multiple health problems with a proper balance, eliminating side effects and dealing with the root cause of the problems rather than subsiding them.
What is important is to find a good homeopath who is qualified to treat you.
