In homeopathy, a key premise is that every person has energy called a vital force or self-healing response. When this energy is disrupted or imbalanced, health problems develop. Homeopathy aims to stimulate the body’s own healing responses. Homeopathic treatment involves giving extremely small doses of substances that produce characteristic symptoms of illness in healthy people when given in larger doses. This approach is called “like cures like.”
It is important to inform all of your health care providers about any therapy that you are currently using or considering, including homeopathic treatment, this is more valid for patient outside India who are not directly under our supervision. This is to help ensure a safe and coordinated course of care Homeopathic medicines in high dilutions, taken under the treatment of qualified and trained homoeopath professionals, are considered safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions.
Some patients report feeling worse for a brief period of time after starting homeopathic remedies. It is interpreted as the body’s temporarily stimulating symptoms while it makes an effort to restore health (homoeopathic aggravation) mostly seen on skin disorder and terminal disorder, clarify with your doctor before initiation of treatment.

There have been some research studies published on the use of ultra-high dilutions (UHDs) of substances, diluted to levels compatible with those in homeopathy and shaken hard at each step of dilution. A The results are claimed to involve phenomena at the molecular level and beyond, such as the structure of water, and waves and fields. Both laboratory research and clinical trials have been published. There have been mixed results in attempts to replicate them. Reviews have not found UHD results to be definitive or compelling.
There have been some studies that found effects of UHDs on isolated organs, plants and animals. There have been controversy and debate about these findings as well. Some groups in medical community and intellectuals believes that if homeopathy appears to be helpful and safe, then scientifically valid explanations or proofs of this alternative system of medicine are not mandatory and binding to decide its usefulness, rather quest to establish valid proofs and development of research tools for homoeopathy be evolved.
