Homeopathy a viable alternative … sometimes

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

A recent German medical study showed the use of a homeopathic remedy to be as effective as a prescription medication for post-surgical foot pain and discomfort.

Homeopathy is one of the most common medical systems worldwide.

It is based on the idea that a person who is sick can be treated with a vanishingly small concentration of a substance (remedy) that at higher concentrations would cause similar symptoms of illness in a healthy person.

In homeopathy, the more dilute the remedy, the stronger the action. This is in stark contrast to traditional medicine where the higher concentration of drug, the stronger the action.

Homeopathy does not lend itself well to the usual research format since remedies are tailor-made for each patient and can change as the patient’s condition changes. For example, the initial remedy that a person might take for high blood pressure could change over time as the blood pressure improves. In traditional medicine, the patient may stay on a specific medical regimen, possibly for life.
