There are a myriad of myths surrounding homeopathy which have been used to discredit the high efficacious healing art and science. Today we’re going to take a look at a few of the most common myths surrounding homeopathy and debunk them.
- You can’t cure anything with homeopathic medicines. Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms, through like for like. A substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure the same symptoms in a sick person by giving a minute, highly potentized dose of that substance acting as a catalyst to jump start their own healing mechanisms. Unlike orthodox medicine, outcomes of homeopathic treatment are measured by the long term curative effects
- Homeopathic medicines are just water, right? No! Homeopathic medicines are not made using only dilution. Dilution alone would do nothing!
- Homeopathic medicines have no scientific backing. Homeopathic medicines undergo scientific testing and studies where a control group of 50+ healthy volunteers are instructed to keep taking a remedy under trial until they develop symptoms which they must record in detail. Substances that have been rigorously tested include nearly everything on the Periodic Table — metals, minerals and gases as well as plants and even things like snake venom.
