  2. What is holistic therapy or holistic medicine?
    Holistic therapy is the therapy which focuses on whole human being including physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspect of health and sickness. These are based on the philosophy that to achieve a state of true health it is important to attain an order & harmony at physical, psychological, social and spiritual level along with having a positive lifestyle. These therapies believe that it is important to know what the sickness is, but it is even more important to know who is sick. This gives information about sickness causing factors. This individualization of sickness and corresponding treatment regime is the basis of holistic therapies. For hundreds of years these therapies have successfully treated diseases and given good health to people around the world.
  3. Is homeopathy a holistic medicine?

  4. What is homeopathy ?  How it works ?
    Homeopathy is being studied as possible future of medicine. It is a natural, holistic healing system discovered by Dr Samuel Hahnemann of Germany. For more than 250 years it has successfully treated acute and chronic diseases and helped people all over the world to live in good health. It works on the principle of ‘like cures like’. Contrary to some other systems which suppress symptoms, it stimulates body’s inner healing ability (immune system) to fight disease and brings on natural positive health. (Please see our section on Homeopathy for details about homeopathy and its working methodology).

According to various polls conducted, 75 to about 90 % people from various countries have shown satisfaction with their homeopathic treatment for ailments including arthritis, asthma, hypertension, anxiety, psoriasis IBS, PMS, sleeplessness, migraine etc. Many clinical studies have confirmed that in addition to treatment of sickness, homeopathy improves overall health and can prevent sickness. It works well both as complimentary treatment to conventional medicine and as frontline (primary) treatment.
  • Is homeopathy different from conventional medicine ?

    • Homeopathy treats a sickness by stimulating body’s natural healing ability (immunity).
    • There are no routine medicines in homeopathy. Its treatment is individualistic which is decided by a doctor after thorough assessment of patients clinical, physical, psychological, and lifestyle status.
  • Is homeopathy a scientific system ? 
    Homeopathy is a scientific healing system which is very well proved in lab and clinical studies. (Please our section on Homeopathy for details). Practice of homeopathy is equivalent to practice of conventional medicine. It is as recognized as allopathy / conventional medicine. It is taught in government recognized medical colleges & hospitals as a university level course. Doctor’s from these medical colleges are licensed to practice homeopathy legally and are registered in government recognized medical council.

  • Who can benefit from homeopathy?
    • Those who are suffering from acute or chronic disease. It treats both physical and psychological diseases.
    • Those who are not finding relief in conventional medicine. It works well along with conventional system of medicine by improving overall relief and reducing side effects.
    • Those who wish to avoid surgery like in nasal polyp, recurrent tonsillitis, ovarian cyst, uterine fibroids, prostate hypertrophy, kidney / gall stones, piles, warts, fistula  in ano, varicose veins, gastric ulcer, vocal nodule, fibroadenoma breast etc.
    • Those who wish to improve health status and move towards positive state of health with better immunity and vigor.
    • It successfully treats the psychosomatic complaints (sickness with psychological cause). For example stress induced asthma / hypertension.
    • Those who wish to prevent occurrence of physical or psychological diseases.
  • Are all diseases curable?
    Homeopathy treats at three levels. Level one is the First Aid where it treats cuts, bruises, sprains, burns etc. Level two is the treatment of acute conditions like common cold and cough, acute fever, acute diarrhea etc. Level three is the treatment of chronic conditions. Treatment of chronic conditions (which is constitutional) depends on stage and state of disease. Homeopathy cures the curable conditions. In conditions which are beyond the scope of cure because of much pathological damage, it relieves the suffering and slows down the progress of disease. In such conditions homeopathy is a good long term management therapy. We do not claim ‘curability’ of all diseases. We stress good management and the judicious use of therapy & medicines according to the status of sick and sickness which will give the best possible relief including cure.
  • What do you mean by constitutional treatment ?
    Constitution is the complete organization of a human being comprising of psychological and physical system and including body organs and body functions.. Mental health affects physical health and vice versa. Even in physical conditions, disease of one organ / system can affect other parts of the body. Body has a natural healing mechanism which try to correct diseases and disorders by which it is affecting. But sometimes it is unable to do so of its own. Constitutional treatment treats disease as well as improves the health status (both physical and psychological) by stimulating this natural healing mechanism.

All these questions are important and relevant to your sickness and its treatment. Kindly answer those in detail as this will help in finding correct treatment.

  • Should I stop allopathic / conventional treatment which I am already taking? Can I take other therapies like acupressure along with homeopathic treatment ?
    Holistic therapies never undermine the significance of allopathic / conventional treatment. Do not stop your treatment and visit to doctor / GP / Family physician. Some medical conditions especially those in which you have been taking regular medicines (for example hypertension, diabetes) require that you continue the medication for the time being. The approach followed at Ethos is one of coordination and integration of various modes of treatment in a systematic scientific manner thereby producing a synergistic effect towards wellbeing at all levels. After the improvement with holistic treatment you can ask your doctor to review the doses and reduce medicines and their doses as per requirement. A stage may come when on regaining health you can stop medicines under the medical supervision. Same principle applies to other therapies like acupressure but be careful by not being in hands of unqualified / unskillful therapists.
  • Do I need investigations to be done?
    Yes, holistic therapies give due place to pathological process and proper diagnosis of sickness by investigations. They also help in assessing progression of sickness. You should provide copies of investigations already done. You will be guided in case some more tests are required.
  • How long treatment continues.   
    Holistic treatment is safe, effective & fast. Since it is not suppression of sickness, the duration depends on the type and stage of sickness as well as on individual’s reaction to treatment.
  • Are these medicines safe? Do they also have side effects ?
    Yes, the medicines provided to you are very safe even in children, pregnant women and elderly. These are all natural medicines. But it is important to stick to the dosage prescribed. Remember over medication never reduces sickness rather increases it. Also don’t forget to tell in detail about progress so that we can make necessary changes in further medication. Homeopathy is free from side effects until it is grossly abused.
  • When homeopathy is safe, why I should not buy homeopathic medicine from local store / online and treat my own disease ? There are so many ready made homeopathic combinations available for my sickness.
    Homeopathy is very safe but even then self treatment must be avoided because it requires a doctor’s analysis to examine the case, to select right medicine in right potency (strength) and right doses. It requires deep knowledge of homeopathy to decide when to repeat medicine, when to change it, increase its potency or change dosage. Only a medically qualified person in homeopathy can understand how to select medicine, how medicine is working and how sickness is progressing. Using self medication or readymade combinations for treating sickness is wrong according to homeopathy. As told it requires careful monitoring of a doctor who selects appropriate medicine and monitors treatment.

  • Will you give a prescription ?
    Due to individualistic nature of homeopathic treatment and to prevent abuse of homeopathic medicines, prescriptions are not provided. But those who wish to know about their treatment can anytime discuss this with their doctor. On specific request prescription will be provided
  • How are these medicines made and tested?
    These medicines are not checked on animals, there is no cruelty involved. These medicines are tested on human volunteers who are in good health. There is no damage done to health of these volunteers.

  • What are the doses of medicines?
    You will be instructed about doses according to the type and stage of sickness.
  • How these medicines will act on me ? How long it will take to show effect ? Someone told me it is too slow ? Another person told me it aggravates (increases) sickness before it treats ?
    Homeopathic medicines start working immediately when one takes them. Their reaction and apparent improvement depends on type and stage of sickness and on individual’s reaction to medicine. Homeopathy is not slow. It works within minutes in acute diseases and in chronic diseases it takes less time than most other therapies to give relief. Whatever time it takes in chronic diseases is because of the fact that does not suppress symptoms but stimulates body’s healing ability (immunity). In rare cases a slight aggravation (increase) is observed and that is a positive sign as it shows medicine is working in right direction. This aggravation is temporary and subsides very soon.
  • What if I take wrong medicine?

    You can not as homeopathic medicine differ from person to person even with similar complaints. Only doctor with deep understanding of homeopathy can select appropriate medicine. Wrong medicine results in failure of treatment and advancement of sickness.
