Does Homeopathy Work?

Have you ever been asked this question or even wondered the same thing. I will be honest until I meet Judi, I thought the same thing. It’s a bunch of hocus pocus and it only worked because people wanted to believe that it worked. Then I meet Judi and realized that it worked because most homeopathic medicines work with your mind, body and soul. There are very few if any side effects from these remedies. I use them with my 2 legged and 4 legged kids. So do I believe that they work , yes I believe that they work and that I will try these remedies before I move on to modern medicines. I am a firm believer that both holistic and modern medicine can work together. I have found a great doctors for all my family, that understands that I would rather find something natural to try first and if in the end I need a medicine than I will use it but only after i find an alternative to it and try it first.

Healing With Homeopathy
————————-

Homeopathy is a branch of holistic medicine, and it involves the use of various plants, minerals and other biological substances in very small doses, with the goal to stimulate a pet’s natural healing defenses. Homeopathy is based on the application of the ‘Law of Similars’, or like cures like, in which a homeopathic medicine (homeopathic remedy) is used to create a reaction that is similar to a symptom of a particular disease. With a sick pet, the symptoms we see are actually the results of the efforts of the pet’s body to re-establish balance or wellness, and the thought is that by using a treatment that would cause symptoms close to what the pet is experiencing, you will induce your pet’s body to build natural defenses.

Scientific Studies

The Lancet (September 20, 1997) published a review of 89 double-blind or randomized placebo- controlled clinical trials (Are the clinical effects of homoeopathy placebo effects? A meta-analysis of placebo-controlled trials). The authors found that homeopathic medicines had a 2.45 times greater effect than placebo overall. Their conclusion: “The results of our meta-analysis are not compatible with the hypothesis that the clinical effects of homoeopathy are completely due to placebo.”
