The disorders that have a physiological condition but are originated in the emotional state of an individual are termed psychosomatic ( Psyche means mind, Soma means body ). The psychosomatic conditons are also referred as psycho-physiologic disorders. This term applies to a large number of disorders of organs innervated by the autonomic nervous system in which emotional factors are primary contributing factor. The nervous system regulates and coordinates body's activities and brings proper responses by which the body adjusts to changes of either external environment or internal environment. The autonomic nervous system which controls body functions involuntarily divides in to sympathetic and parasympathetic system. Conditions like anxiety, fear stimulate sympathetic nerve fibers and produces vasoconstriction in the part supplied like general rise in blood pressure, acceleration of the heart rate, depression of gastrointestinal activity. Some effects of parasympathetic stimulation are constriction of bronchioles like in asthma, contraction of smooth muscles of alimentary canal (produce griping pain in stomach), slowing of heart rate, and increased secretion by gland like salivary, gastric glands. Repeated episodes of these anxiety conditions produce disorders in those organs. Symptoms can be healed smoothly without side effects by addressing mental anxiety and physical problem together. homeopathy remedies act at the level of mind and body together to eradicate the problem as a whole
examples of psychosomatic disorders: Migraine, asthma, acidity, peptic ulcer, allergy. Most of the times, some of the following mental conditions are the cause for these problems: such as excessive anxiety, irritability, insecurity, obsessive traits, undue jealousy, suspicion ( paranoid fears ), depression, neurosis etc...
By relieving these emotions, homeopathic remedies bring harmonious state of health. homeopathy is for the person as a whole, not for disease
Yes. homeopathy is good option for problems caused by virus as they strengthen immunity system. Homeopathic remedies give good relief from symptoms of common cold, flu, measles, chickenpox , viral hepatitis (jaundice), viral meningitisTop
Yes. Allergy is an acquired hyper sensitivity to a substance (allergen) that does not normally cause a reaction. It is essentially a disorder of immune system resulting antibody-antigen reaction. But, in some cases there may be a genetic predisposition to acquisition of particular allergy, where we can't find any antibody.
Allergic conditions include:
Eczema, allergic rhinitis or coryza, hay fever, bronchial asthma
Symptoms like eosinophilia, nasal congestion, tearing, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, itching rash, eruptions
Etiology: pollen, dust, hair, fur, feathers, scabies, wool, chemicals, drugs, insect bites and specific foods such as eggs, chocolate, milk, wheat, tomatoes, citrus fruits, oat-meal, potatoes.
20th century syndrome: They develop symptoms like allergic to every thing in the environment. This is most probably due to acute or chronic emotional stress. The individuals may isolate themselves from environmental materials.
Allergic conditions could be genetic or might have been developed later on due to a specific cause. homeopathy improves multiple symptoms of allergic condition with a single remedy
homeopathy address the cause of the problem. It also reduces the reoccurrence of the problem by removing the nature to develop that condition like piles, fissures, fistula, appendicitis (except gangrenous), chronic ear discharge, vocal cord nodules, polyp in nose-ear, kidney and gall bladder stones, small size uterine fibroid, ovarian cysts, warts, corns etc.
Problems often reappear as described below:
After surgery they appear in the same place, e.g.: recurrent kidney stones after repeated surgeries.
After surgery they develop in different location e.g.: caries tooth. Infection of another teeth after removal of badly infected teeth in same side or opposite side. This chain may end up the individual with artificial dentures.
Piles are nothing but swollen pyloric veins. The real problem may be pressure on veins from constipation, congested liver or heart problem. Until the root cause is removed, they appear again and again even after they are operated. Homeopathic remedies give strength to muscles and ligaments to hold uterus in proper place save the uterus from removal in case of uterine prolepses.
The pathological changes are nothing but end products of disease. Just removal is not the solution for many conditions. homeopathy remedies some time helps to avoid surgery, they also remove the tendency to develop the problem again
Individualization means individualize each person with similar problems. It's not uncommon to see the doctors not paying any attention to individual's narration of symptoms except worrying about the test results. The whole person is a united system of multiple organs which interact with each other. The trouble in one place reflects in many organs. Homeopaths find single remedy that is suitable for all the symptoms to avoid many drugs for multiple symptoms. So there is no chance of interaction between remedies as only single remedy will be used in homeopathy. No need to run from one specialist to other specialist. Medicinal side effects results in so many complications, If treated each symptom separately. Briefly homeopaths individualize a case to find single remedy which covers all the symptoms and heals as fast as it can be without side effects
Some examples in individualizing are follows:
Take two cases of hay fever, one having headache with fever, other having runny nose with itchy eyes.
Take two people suffering from asthma, one may get his attack in winter, other in summer.
One individual suffering from diabetes may loves sweets, other may hate them.
With fever some people have heat all over the body, for some people, only head is hot and other parts cold.
In menorrhagia, one has bleeding only in day time, other have only in night.
some people suffer more in the morning , for others night is worse
All these differences in signs and symptoms show underlying pathology and cause. Just by observing this we can know lot about the individual's condition without diagnostic tests. If bacteria is the only cause for disease why similar streptococcus bacteria effects different organs in each person like throat, heart, joints resulting in strep throat, rheumatic heart disease, rheumatic arthritis. These symptoms show the weak points of body and underlying pathology. This shows the individuality of the people. When body is crying out clearly in the form of signs and symptoms, why to neglect them and pay more attention to just test results? Homeopathic remedies establish the harmony in the system and makes the person healthier contrary to the other systemsTop

Sometimes an initial worsening of your symptoms can occur. This initial aggravation is usually a good sign and signifies that your body is responding to the remedy. Although the physical symptoms might get worse for a short period of time, you as a whole will start to feel better almost immediately.

homeopathy is based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not really separate and distinct, but are actually fully integrated. Based on this perspective, a homeopath seeks a remedy that fits all of a patient’s physical and psychological symptoms. Although some people’s symptoms may be complex, a well-trained homeopath will know which symptoms should be specially noted, and can choose an effective, individualized remedy
Prolonged emotional stress can cause physical problems, like upset stomach, difficulty in digesting foods, poor nutrient assimilation, weaker immune system, sleeplessness, etc. The opposite is also true. Illness and physical problems can result in anxiety or emotional uneasiness. Therefore, it is important for a homeopath to conduct an in-depth interview of a patient to ensure a proper, all encompassing remedyTop
Level 1: First Aid
Homeopathy can be used in first aid to safely treat common ailments and occurrences, such as sprains and bruises, minor burns, skin irritations and reactions (including poison ivy, diaper rash and insect bites), teething pain, etc.
Level 2: Acute Homeopathy
Acute health problems are those in which the symptoms will eventually go away on their own. They are temporary conditions, such as colds, flu, coughs, sprains, etc. A homeopathic remedy can be useful and attractive because it is safe, gentle and has no harmful side effects. homeopathy can also be used to assist sensitive conditions such as pregnancy
Level 3: Constitutional Homeopathy
Constitutional homeopathy refers to the treatment of a person as a whole, including past and present symptoms. When accurately implemented, homeopathic constitutional care can elicit a profound healing response. homeopathy can be extremely effective in treating chronic and long-term health problems. Recurrent ear infections, for example, can be treated with a homeopathic remedy for a longer period of time to strengthen the body’s immune system and to prevent future occurrences
Homeopathic remedies are indeed very small doses. However, they are specially prepared doses which undergo a specific process — including dilution of ingredients (called potentization), as well as a vigorous shaking (succussion).
Specially formulated homeopathic remedies are thought to resonate with the body, triggering a positive healing response. This response gently, and effectively, heals from the inside out.
The documented results from thousands of experienced homeopaths, and from millions of their patients, clearly show that these small, individualized doses produce profound health benefits
If you think you must "believe in" homeopathy for it to work, you need to know that it is not a placebo effect. Here are some powerful examples:
Infants: Homeopathic remedies and treatments are successfully used by parents for common infant ailments such as colic, teething pain and some infections.
Animals: There are many veterinarians using homeopathic medicines to treat domestic pets such as cats, dogs and birds, as well as barnyard animals like goats, horses and cows. Is it possible to have a placebo effect with animals?

39% of French family physicians
20% of German physicians
10% of Italian physicians

Open Communication & Observation
While it is the homeopath’s job to elicit relevant information by asking probing questions, the patient can expect a higher chance of receiving an effective homeopathic remedy if he or she is open and truthful in describing their physical and psychological symptoms. It is also important to be observant of the changes taking place in your system. To that end, you might want to keep a journal or notes on any noticeable changes or shifts in your symptoms or health
Substances to Avoid
Another important thing to remember is that it is wise to avoid any substances that might interfere with your remedy. Certain substances have been found to reverse ("antidote") the effects of homeopathic remedies and medicines.
It is suggested that you avoid the following substances, practices and items to insure the best response from your remedy
Camphor, or camphorated products including products containing eucalyptus and camphor oils
Dental work, teeth cleaning, drilling or anesthetics
Mint, or mentholated products
Some conventional drugs (Be sure to tell your homeopath what you are taking)
Stress, which can lower the resonance of a homeopathic remedy
It is next to impossible to understand one's own deepest energetic imbalance. We seem to be blind to our own states.

Treating oneself with constitutional homeopathic remedies usually is a recipe for frustrations and can lead to greater difficultiesTop
Different homeopaths may advise differently on this issue. Diet is not strictly speaking an issue in homeopathy. There is an understanding that the right remedy will facilitate more appropriate food choices.

Eating sensibly, that is consuming appropriate quantities of properly balanced natural ingredients , is always a good idea. Your homeopath can help guide you in this area if you requestTop
