Homeopathy and Weight Loss

The first principle of homeopathy was formulated by Dr. Hahnemann, a German doctor in the 18th century. It is based on the concept that similar affections are healed with similar formula. Today it is used being a safe, non invasive therapy. It is non toxic to the body too, and has no long-term side effects. It also boasts of being safer for pregnant women, infants and the elderly compared with other therapies.

Homeopathic substances are made through the process of dilution. Having no longer whole molecules, rendering them non-allergenic and non-poisonous, they stimulate the body towards balance. Homeopathy uses natural substances which are approved and regulated by the FDA. Most remedies are available without a prescription.

Homeopathic remedies can be used along with supplements and herbs and can be safely taken together with insulin, heart, blood pressure, thyroid and other medications. Chronic diseases can be also treated with homeopathy as well. Lately it offers treatments for various aspects of obesity too. Homeopathic medicines help in the weight loss procedure by improving digestion, elimination and metabolism. However, the medicines need to be individually prescribed, based on different patterns. So before taking them, consult a homeopathic doctor for proper advice.

In the weight loss procedure through homeopathic medicine Antimonium crudum, Argentum nitricum, Calcarea carbonica, Coffea cruda and Capsicum are the most often used remedies.
