    Do Homeopathic medicines really work?

    Lee Teaposted 5 years ago

    Depends on what you're trying. For example, I use herbal teas for energy, restful sleep, better focus, pain relief, and much more.  When my children are sick with sore throat or a cold, we use a homeopathic cough syrup composed of plant extracts from the store that relieves their symptoms without unwanted side effects.

    Pharmaceuticals and homeopathic medicines which extract only the active ingredient for use can be much harsher on body chemistry, while only treating symptoms and not the cause of your ailment.  Using plant medicines in whole will often help the body process the active ingredient with usually no unwanted side effects, by supplying buffers and synergists to ease the process.

    Homeopathy is a booming industry, so be aware that just because something is labeled "homeopathic" doesn't guarantee it will work, or will work for you.  It helps to define your ailment, and then do a little research on what natural remedies may help  ease symptoms and allow the body to correct the underlying problem itself.   

    If you have questions on a certain ailment, I'll be happy to supply you some of my own research-based information on which natural remedies have been scientifically tested and proven effective.  Cross-referencing the history and folk-lore of natural remedies with science and clinical trials is the basis for the products I develop and sell through my own business.

    Be well - Lee @ Lee's Teas

      Dear Lee Tea, Thanks a lot for such a comprehensive answer. No I am not concerned about any specific treatment. The fact that many people doubt whether these medicines actually work, I want to have an opinion on this.

    Yes in my case, it really cured a disease which did not get cured even after four consecutive surgeries. I was relieved in a year's homeopathic course three years ago and touchwood, since then I am fine. I do believe in homeopathy because the immune system becomes stronger and the general health improves, one needs to be patient as the process is slow.

    Nope! They're junk. How can a minute solution be able to cure something so complicated a disease?

    If people say they got cured by homeopathic medicines, they just want to believe that it helps but actually our body has the capacity to heal given the time. Of course,as long as it's not in its worst stage.
