Homeopathy is founded on certain fundamental, natural therapeutic laws and principles which remain eternally unaltered. The fundamental law of Homeopathy is “the similar cure the similar”, going back to Hippocrates.
The symptoms of a disease confirm the existence of some kind of disharmony on the one hand, and on the other they consist the way by which the organism tries to face this disharmony. They are nothing more than the expression of the organism itself first to limit and then defeat the disease. Fever, vomit, mucus, diarrhea, are all useful symptoms or their products. In case of their absence, the damage would spread and the organism would be in greater danger.
SYMPTOMS ARE THE RESULT OF A DISHARMONY, NOT ITS CAUSE
However, the defense mechanism of a human being does not possess all the energy required for a complete therapy. That is the place for a homeopathic remedy, which moving in the same direction as that of the defensive mechanisms of the body, and not against them, enhances them in order for self-healing to take place. The purpose of a homeopathic treatment with a Homeopathy therapist in Athens is the mild, permanent and rapid restoration of health, i.e. the condition in which the organism regulates its function harmoniously and keeps all its parts in balance.
One more important characteristic of Homeopathy is its HOLISTIC APPROACH. This is because it perceives illness as something affecting the entire organism and not just a part of it. The interaction between mind, emotion and body, an undisputable part of all ancient therapeutic traditions, has begun to be recognized also in our time as a general truth. That is the basis on which the homeopathic history taking is grounded on, during which information is asked regarding bodily symptoms as well as emotions, way of life, habits and personality of the patient. In case two people suffer from the same disease, such as diabetes or hypertension for example, the entire disharmony is going to be expressed in different ways in each person, therefore requiring respectively different therapeutic approaches.
So it is an INDIVIDUALISED THERAPY METHOD, which takes into account everything that differentiates one person from another. Homeopathic remedies are exclusively of NATURAL ORIGIN (plant, animal or mineral) and are prescribed in infinitesimal dosages, with subsequently no side effects or interactions. Therefore they are suitable for sensitive population groups such as newly born babies, pregnant or breastfeeding women and the elderly.
The therapeutic method of Homeopathy permeates all medical specialties and covers a broad spectrum of diseases:
-stress, panic attacks, phobias
-gastrointestinal disorders / diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux, gastric ulcer etc.
-gynecological disorders / menstruation disorders, menopause problems, HPV, cysts, uterine fibroids etc.
-respiratory problems / bronchial asthma, allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic bronchitis, frequent cold etc.
-autoimmune diseases/ rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s etc.
-musculosketelal system inflammations.
With the exception of cases in which there are irreversible pathologoanatomical damages.
The simultaneous usage of other kind of medication or the consumption of coffee does not consist a restrictive condition as far as the commencement of homeopathic treatment is concerned.
