No side effects for homoeopathic medicines:

“HOMEOPATHY” is a therapeutic system of medicine based on the principle “Similia Similibus Curenter” i.e., likes are treated by likes. Homeopathy is individualized and the treatment is patient specific.

Homeopathic medicines are prepared by a process called potentisation where by the inherent dormant dynamic curative power of drugs are aroused by modifying the drug strength to dynamic power through simultaneous and successive process of dilution and friction in definitive order according to pharmacopoeia. In simple words it is getting more and more diluted as the potency (dose) increases; a potency increase means reducing the drug strength into 1/10 or 1/100th as per its scale of preparation. Even form the lowest potency it is very difficult for a chemical lab test to detect the trace of drug substance present in it. So it is not the drug substance that is giving a cure instead our immunity is increasing or our vital energy is regaining strength and thus overthrowing diseases in its full extend.

Considered safe for pregnant women, and has no side effects or post-recovery injuries even on unborn child. Even beneficial for pets, farm animals, as homeopathic drugs are easy to administer and is very effective.
