Why Homeopathy is the best for psychosomatic problems ?
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.
Are there any antibiotics in Homeopathy?
Biotic ( living ) means science that deals with functions of life. Antibiotic means destructive to life. Bacteria affects only few people though lot of people get exposed to them, as you will talk to few known people when you attend a party with hundreds of people. Antibodies of immunity system kills the bacteria when it enters in to healthy people. Antibody is a protein developed in response to a specific antigen (foreign substance which produce disease). Antibody controls antigen from producing a disease. That means our body develops suitable antibody to each bacteria, each virus and each allergic substance. That is how, our health is maintained, though we are exposed to billions of bacteria every day. Health problems rise whenever this immunity system is weak. Homeopathic remedies eliminate the need of antibiotics by strengthening the Immunity system.

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.

How can it help in surgical conditions ?
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.

Why to individualize people in Homeopathy ?
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 systems.
