Homeopathy is an alternative field of medicine which has gained a lot of recognition in the last few decades. Even though many mainstream doctors and scientists believe that homeopathy is equivalent to ‘voodoo medicine’, people around the world have found it to be effective in treating many diseases.
Many surveys have found that citizens of developed and developing countries often opt for homeopathic treatment of diseases as such treatment do not have any severe side effects. Even for problems related to the thyroid gland, homeopathy offers many medications, which are prescribed based on the situation of the patient.
Homeopathy can offer more than 50 different kinds of remedies that can help in curing thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism (under – active and over – active thyroid). These remedies are Fucus vesiculosus, Calcarea carb, Bromium, Calcarea, Lapis alb, Lycopus, Iodium, Calcarea phos, Spongia and Calcarea carb, Thyroidinum,Parathyroidinum, Hipofisina, Crotalus Cascavelle, Calcarea iodate, Spongia Tosta, Crotalus Cascavelle, Thioproperazine, Aurum sulphuratum, Sarothamnus scoparius, Morgan etc.
These mediations or remedies are made of natural substances and do not include harmful chemicals. The dosages are administered by the homeopathic doctor, based on the symptoms of the patient and the severity of his condition. This particular system of medication aims at treating the root cause of a disease, rather than treating its symptoms.
Homeopathy does not offer a single medication for all patients; instead, the patients are given the dosage of different medicines based on their body condition. The healing process begins by boosting or improving the immune system of the patient. The whole treatment process is time taking and effective results may be achieved after waiting for a few months. Patients might need to visit the doctor on a regular basis, as he will check the condition of their disease and change the dosage accordingly.
