Homeopathy has been an integral part of the medical industry for a long time now. It provides a safer treatment for diseases as compared to other available medicines. Homeopathic medicines for allergies and other ailments are non-toxic, non-habit-forming, and gentle on the body.  Despite the benefits and proven results, there are certain myths that have followed the practice of homeopathy and its treatments for decades and continue to do so.

In this article, we will debunk the myths surrounding homeopathy and will treat you with facts. The common myths are as follows:

  1. Homeopathy is similar to Herbal and Ayurvedic Medicine

Homeopathy is vastly different from herbal and ayurvedic medicines. Homeopathic medicines are made from micro doses of medicines derived from herbs and plants. Whereas herbal and ayurvedic medicines use actual extracts of herbs and plants for treatments.

  1. Homeopathy is Less Effective than Conventional Medicine

Homeopathy has been providing a safe and effective treatment for diseases for centuries now. The method of treatment might be different, but rest assured that its effectiveness is on par or even better than conventional medicines.

  1. Homeopathic Treatment Only Consists of Pills

Along with pills, homeopathic medicines are also available in the form of dilutions, ointments, lotions, oral sprays, and even injections.

  1. Homeopathic Medicines are like Vaccines

Both homeopathic medicines and vaccines are vastly different. Homeopathic medicine is customized according to the symptoms of the patient. On the other hand, vaccines are given to every patient irrespective of the symptoms.

Also, vaccines are tested on animals and are seen to cause adverse side effects. Homeopathic medicines are tested on healthy human beings and do not cause any side effects.

  1. Homeopathic Doctors are Not Real Doctors

Homeopathic doctors’ study for 5 and half years full-time in professional medical colleges, the same as MBBS doctors. They are trained to diagnose medically and also use clinical and diagnostic techniques like X-ray, CT scan, and MRI to diagnose their patients. Their experience and expertise also make them competent to offer online homeopathy consultation.  However, in case of serious issues, it’s best to visit the doctor personally.

  1. Homeopathy Cannot Work with Allopathy

Homeopathy can work well with allopathy but the criteria is to use both synergistically. There are clinical pieces of evidence present that illustrate homeopathy and conventional medicine complement each other and treat illnesses such as diabetes efficiently.

  1. Coffee reduces the effect of homeopathic medicines

Strongly flavoured preparations such as coffee can affect the effect of homeopathic medicines, however, that doesn’t mean that an individual should stop consuming or using such preparations. It’s advised to keep a 30 minutes time period between the consumption of homeopathic medicines and coffee or similar food items.

Though conventional medicines are effective against a variety of diseases, there is always a risk of recurrence of the disease.
