Disease Curability using Homoeopathic Medicine
homeopathy is a science and not a magic! Homeopathy has its own strength and limitations as well. The believers of homeopathy, at times, have over expectations from this science. Also, some of the homeopaths have wrong notions; wherein they promote the idea that if symptoms match, all diseases, from colds to cancer find a cure in homeopathy. The curability of diseases using homeopathy depends on some of the following factors, put randomly as under:
Nature of PathologyAll disease are not the same. The diseases can be allergic (e.g... asthma, hay fever), infective (viral, bacterial, fungal, etc), autoimmune (e.g. under active thyroid, alopecia areata), metabolic (e.g. diabetes, lactose intolerance), functional (e.g. Irritable Bowel Syndrome), structural (e.g. Ulcerative colitis), reversible (e.g.GERD, Migraine), irreversible (e.g. Hernia, Cataract, Male Pattern Baldness), benign (e.g. Chalazion, lipoma), malignant (e.g. Cancer), emotional (e.g. Anxiety neurosis, Erectile dysfunction), psychological (e.g. depression), psychosomatic (e.g. Migraine, Rheumatoid arthritis), collagen (e.g. Polymyositis, Myasthenia gravis, Muscular dystrophy), nutritional (e.g. anemia), iatrogenic (drug induced disease) (e.g. Lichen Planus, cortisone myopathy) etc. The prognosis varies based on the nature of the disease.
Nature of DiseaseMy new categories of disease will be Acute, sub acute, chronic, recurring or critical; instead of only Acute and Chronic. Most of the Acute (tonsillitis), Chronic (Eczema) and Recurring (Asthmatic Bronchitis) diseases are treatable using homeopathy. However, some of the acute diseases which are critical in nature, such as severe infection (septicemia, cerebral malaria) or heart attack (myocardial infarction) etc are not curable using homeopathy.
Nature of infectionMost of the bacterial and viral infections find good treatment using homeopathy. However, severe infections such as Tuberculosis, HIV, Gonorrheal Meningitis, Typhoid, etc are better not treated using homeopathy as the conventional treatment is more effective for them. Cases of HIV can find supportive role in homeopathy. Homeopathy is effective for bacterial infections such as abscess, tonsillitis, otitis media, recurring boils, osteomyelitis, etc. Homeopathy is also effective for viral infections such as measles, chickenpox, hepatitis A, B and C, viral warts, herpes, molluscum contagiosa, etc. Fungal infections such as tenia versicolor and tenia corporis responds to homeopathy. However, very old standing tenia corporis is often difficult to treat with any medicine. Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of nails, difficult to treat yet treatable..
If or not the pathological changes of the disease are functional or structural in nature
The diseases with functional changes (Aplastic anemia, Migraine) are easy to treat by and large. The diseases with structural (Psoriatic arthritis), changes take longer to get results. Some of them are completely curable (e.g. Ulcerative colitis,Hepatitis C) while some are partly curable (Trigeminal Neuralgia), and some are incurable (e.g. Deformities in Rheumatoid arthritis).
If or not the pathological changes of the disease are irreversible or irreversible in nature
Reversible disease pathology such as Psoriasis, Urticaria, Asthma are curable. The diseases with irreversible changes such passport can be palliated but not cured; while some of the irreversible diseases such as some forms of cancer cannot be cured or helped using homeopathy.
