Do They Really Work?

Homeopathic remedies have been used for decades to help relieve symptoms caused by common ailments. There are many people who believe that homeopathy remedies are the only way to go. However, after scientific and clinical research reached the stage of being able to test these medical infusions it became questionable as to whether or not they actually worked and the medical practice of homeopathy became known as a pseudo science and an alternative rather than mainstream medical practice.

Reasons Why Homeopathy Remedies May Not Work

The reason why homeopathy remedies may not work is due to the dilution.  Dilution is the essential process to creating homeopathic remedies. In order to create the medicinal infusion that is central to homeopathic medicine a person trained in this practice takes a compound of either herbs or medicines or a combination of both and then dilutes this compound, in a solution, usually of water.

The diluted mixture is then diluted over and over again as many as 12 times in order to create the final product. Scientific and clinical research has shown that by the time the dilution has been completed, the process has rendered a solution that is primarily inert. In other words, by the time the dilution process is over the original herbal compound has little to no place within the infusion.

As a result of this, it is nearly impossible to receive actual benefit from these types of medical practices.  However, there are some individuals that do receive benefits from this type of alternative medical practice. There are a couple of reasons as to why some individuals receive benefits from these types of compounds. Primarily individuals who believe strongly in alternative medical practices can mentally create a positive result from the inert infusion because of their strong belief in its ability to assist them.

There are also some people who believe that the healing essence of the herbal compound is released into the solution through each one of the solutions and as a result, the compound is defective.  These individuals also usually believe in the ability of energy manipulation to promote healing within the body. However, there is no scientific evidence to back the practice of homeopathy this is the reason why the practice has gone from being a primary source of medical knowledge and treatment to a pseudo science and alternative medical practice.

Nevertheless, always check with your primary care provider before beginning any new treatment.
