Homeopathy is herbal medicine
Homeopathic medicines are procured and sourced from various natural sources such as animal kingdom, mineral kingdom and plant kingdom among others. Therefore considering homeopathy as herbal medicine nullifies there itself. Other than that, the medicines are then subjected to the procedure of drug dynamisation , potentisation by the process of trituration and succession which makes homeopathic medicines dynamic and scientific. And hence, Homeopathy is not simple herbal medicine as presumed.
Homeopathy increases the disease initially
Fear and anxiety is spread fast than the reality behind it. It is during the treatment of very few specific diseases that there will be increase in the disease symptom which is in fact a positive sign of correct treatment taking place. But in the treatment of majority of diseases, there will never be any increase in the disease. A homeopathic doctor will explain at the start of treatment how the process takes place.
Homeopathy is just placebo
This is a biggest myth that homeopathy is a placebo effect. How can homeopathy be a placebo effect when this science is existing and becoming more popular since more than 200 years and when Homeopathy is based on nature’s laws applicable across the globe.
Homeopathy is slow
People consult homeopathic doctors after making rounds of many other physicians and hospitals.
