Can we consume milk through homeopathic medicine


There are still many stereotypes about homeopathy. Misconceptions, often the result of a lack of knowledge of the facts and the place of homeopathy in medicine. This includes the fact that homeopathy is herbal medicine, that homeopathic medicines are only suitable for children, that homeopathy takes a long time to work, and that homeopathy can only be prescribed by specialized homeopathic specialists. What is right and what is wrong?

"Isn't homeopathy herbal medicine?"

Homeopathy is often confused with phytotherapy, which uses the therapeutic properties of plants.
In addition to plants, homeopathy also uses substances of animal origin (e.g. snake venom, bees, sepia ink, oyster lime) and of mineral or chemical origin (e.g. graphite, sulfur, mercury).
In contrast to phytotherapy, however, in homeopathy the basic substance (animal, vegetable or mineral origin) is diluted and then used in the smallest doses. This is where the expression "in homeopathic doses" comes from.

"Surely only homeopaths are allowed to prescribe homeopathic medicines?"

Homeopaths are doctors who have decided to specialize in homeopathy after completing their medical studies.

Nowadays, in addition to homeopathic specialists, many doctors - general practitioners, paediatricians, gynecologists, surgeons or dentists - have started to prescribe homeopathic medicines in their practices in order to treat their patients.

In addition, pharmacists and druggists play an important role in providing homeopathic advice.

"You don't even know how homeopathy works?"

Studies are being carried out around the world to better understand the effects of high dilutions without it being possible to explain the mechanism of action. Until then, we will have to be patient, just as it took a long time to understand the effects of aspirin (1971) and penicillin (end of the 20th century). The fact that a mechanism of action is not known does not mean that doctors, pharmacists and druggists cannot determine that homeopathy has a positive effect on the health of patients.

"Isn't homeopathy being researched in medical studies?"

Homeopathy is the result of research. In order to perfect the effect of his remedies and to understand them, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann conducts experiments on himself, his neighbor and his patient.

In addition, the effect of homeopathic medicines on numerous diseases has been proven in clinical studies. This is the case, for example, with the team headed by Prof. Berrebi from Toulouse (F), who has proven the pain-relieving effect of homeopathic medicines on milk leakage after childbirth.

Homeopathy has been the subject of over 5,000 studies that health professionals can consult on the Pubmed website, the world's most important scientific search engine.

"With homeopathic medicines, you have to wait a long time for them to work?"

One of the great advantages of homeopathy is that it can be prescribed for acute (sudden and occasional) illnesses as well as for chronic (regularly occurring) illnesses

For acute symptoms, the doctor will prescribe a homeopathic treatment that is taken over a short period of time (a few hours or days) so that the symptoms can quickly subside.

For chronic diseases, the doctor prescribes homeopathic medicines that are taken over a long period (several weeks) to reduce the intensity and frequency of the patient's episodes. This is the case, for example, with hay fever, chronic sinusitis, eczema or herpes.

"Homeopathy, isn't that medicine?"

Homeopathy is about choosing a homeopathic medicine to use to treat a disease or symptom.

In addition, Boiron drugs require approval from the health authorities. This status of a drug guarantees health professionals as well as patients the reliability of the product they use, which is subject to standards, pharmaceutical controls and certification.

As with any other medicine, the health care professional plays an important role in the correct use of the homeopathic medicine. Therefore, consult a health professional.

"With homeopathic medicines, isn't the dose for adults and children the same?"

Homeopathic medicines can be prescribed in different ways depending on the patient. They are tailored to the patient, their profile, medical history, or the symptoms they are manifesting. Two different patients can thus be treated differently.

Apart from that, the amount of globules that is taken is always the same, regardless of weight or age, or whether it is an adult, a child or an animal.

"You shouldn't touch homeopathic globules with your fingers?"

The quality or the expected effect is in no way affected by whether you touch the globules with your fingers or not.

However, for reasons of hygiene (many diseases are transmitted through touch with the hands) it is better to use the globule counter, which makes it easier to take the globules and does not require touch.

"Aren't peppermint and coffee incompatible with homeopathic medicines?"

It is a good idea to make sure your mouth is empty and clean before taking homeopathic medicines and to keep time between taking the globules and meals.

However, peppermint or coffee, if not consumed at the same time or just before or after taking the remedy, will not affect the effectiveness of the prescribed homeopathic medicine.
