This system of medicine have seen numerous changes during the past decade with advancement in research and new ways of prescribing. With these new methods and more accessible information on drugs, their pathogenesis and interactions; this field of medicine has seen an increase in pharmaceutical companies manufacturing new drug combinations and drugs.

However, like any other medicinal field, homoeopathy can also produce adverse reactions when taken without proper prescription from a qualified doctor.A too low or high dose of homeopathic medicine may either produce no effect or an undue aggravation of the diseased state.
Frequent repetitions without proper knowledge of the mode of treatment may produce appearance of drug disease which when superimposed on a chronic diseased state may cause undue prolongation of an already diseased state. Sometimes this “Drug Disease” may become more difficult to cure and may prolong the cure. In such cases, a skillful observation by an experienced Homoeopath is needed so as to remove these side-effects of wrongful prescribing.

Although these side-effects can mitigate with time or by proper antidote given at a suitable time, however, continuous and repeated self-medication may cause undue harm to the body and create a permanent drug disease which becomes more difficult to treat with time.

Thus, it is important to realize that like any conventional methods of treatment, Homoeopathic medicines needs to be taken at the proper time and with suitable time intervals under the guidance of qualified practitioners only.

    I mostly follow this page for a good laugh and the spelling and grammar in that article made my day. Homeopathy is not a form of medicine, it’s just a myth. I’ll just get back to studying now.

  • Elsje Winnubst

    Side effects can be known as an aggravation..the idea of Side effects may be a misnomer. Steroids have ‘side effects’. A homeopathic remedy may produce an ‘aggravation’ or a healing crisis produced by sx that were present or part of a miasmic picture. In my experience aggravations are more likely to come from an ill conceived repeat when it was not necessary. Also deep acting constitutional remedies like sulphur ought not to be repeated too often. When a remedy is well indicated the need for repeats lessens over time. Lower potencies in general produce less intense aggravations and also less intense amelioration’s, may result if the intensity of sx is not matched to potency. It depends on the patients picture.

    My personal experience of using Homeopathy as my main source of healing for 35 years now is that there are no side effects at all, there are healing processes which can at times bring symptoms out into the open but they are not side effects. Homeopathy stimulates the body to balance itself.
