Homeopathic Remedies For The Immune System
As life becomes faster and more complex, we're just beginning to understand how dramatically the immune system
can be impacted. In fact, the immune system has its own complexity. It involves the liver, spleen, thymus, the
lymphatic system, and bone marrow. All of these work together to help your body resist illness.
Sometimes, heredity plays a role in the effectiveness of the immune system. Just as fundamental as heredity, in
most cases, are your lifestyle choices. The hurry with which we want to treat minor ailments is probably the
essential cause behind frequent assaults of common cold and fu or an elevated susceptibility to disease.
Instead of patiently waiting for the body to heal itself or looking for an antibiotic substitute like an herbal
antibiotic, the inclination is to rush to conventional antibiotics for quick relief. Unfortunately, in most cases,
the excessive use of antibiotics can actually undermine your immune system.
Fortunately, homeopathy offers a natural alternative to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics. Homeopathy
is based on the school of thought that taking a diluted form of the substance that causes a disease will remedy
that disease. For example, coffee leads to sleeplessness but an exceedingly diluted remedy made from coffee
itself will ultimately cure it.
These are a few of the essential principles of homeopathy:
- The foremost priority should be to advance the immune system so that the body can mend by itself.
- Symptoms are expressions of the bodys attempt to treat itself.
- Only natural substances and herbs should be used to prepare a homeopathic remedy.
- The focus of treatment should be on treating an individual as a whole, rather than providing temporary and
Homeopathic remedies stimulate the immune system to help the body in fixing any imbalances that may have taken
In order to be efficient in performing its functions, the immune system must be in tip-top shape. For example,
autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis can often be traced back to an immune system that's broken and
hyperactive and has the body attacking its own cells. A lacking immune system, then again, leads to deficiency
diseases like common cold and flu, often extending to more serious conditions.
In homeopathy, an appropriate remedy is selected based on the constitution of each individual after considering
the physical, mental and emotional symptoms. The homeopathic Materia Medica contains a detailed description of
every remedy based upon specific characteristics that are found to be present in any given individual.
Homeopathic remedies can be very specific. For example, nux vomica is a constitutional remedy
for energetic and ambitious people. Sulphur, on the other hand, is intended for those who are energetic but less
practical. A Pulsatilla patient is one who is shy, kind and gentle and always ready to be led rather than lead.
Arsenicm album is indicated in an ambitious but tense person who is always nervous about health.
Homeopathics are effortless to take, non-habit forming, gentle, a good value for the money and at the same time
focus on strengthening the immune system to increase the body's capacity for self-healing.
