How homeopathy differs from conventional medicine?

Have you ever wondered about the days of your great grandmother, when there were no antibiotics, steroids, painkillers, and anti-inflammatory drugs to fight disease with? How did the people used to get cured of their illness till a couple of decades ago? The people did not used to succumb to every minor and major illness. Most of the time they used to get out of it. But how? What used to kill the bacteria, viruses, and parasites causing disease in those days? Their own immune system!

Yes! our body has a very strong defense mechanism, capable of fighting most disease conditions. When our body suffers from any disease, body activates its defense system and fights the disease causing agents. Now medicine can help in overcoming disease in two ways.

One is to add foreign chemical or biological agents in our body in the form of antibiotics and antiviral drugs. These work by killing the bacteria and viruses respectively. In this process they weaken the body’s inherent defense mechanism, as our body’s own army of white cells becomes secondary. This is how allopathy or conventional medicine works. It kills the bacteria but does nothing to remove the predisposition of disease and the weakness of immune system, which initially resulted in the establishment of disease process. Instead, it weakens it further, predisposing it to more and frequent diseases.

The second way in which a medicine can help the body in overcoming diseases is to strengthen our body’s inherent immune system and let the body take care of the disease causing agents. In this way two objectives are attained. First, the disease is cured very rapidly and effectively without the side-effects of the modern wonder drugs(!). Secondly, in this process as the immune system is further strengthened, the predisposition to disease forms is overcome and their recurrence prevented. Thus there is overall health benefit. This is how Homeopathy works!
