Homeopathy is a part of the integrative medicine in the United States. Integrative medicine combines the conventional medicine and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to get the best result for the patients.
Homeopaths treat the whole and the unique person in front of them. It means that they value the emotional state of the patient as much as the medicines the patient’s been using. When estimating the health condition of a person they even consider sleeping patterns, food habits and physical activity. The appointment is more talk and less physical exam, and at the end of an appointment the practitioner will suggest some medications for your illness. Most of the homeopathic medications are safe to use, and the best way to use them is to consult a specialist, and then apply the homeopathic medication.
If you decide to use the homeopathy on your own, try to use a remedy for symptoms that are similar to yours. Remedies are marked with doses and if you are following the directions and symptoms don’t’ go away, it might be the time to choose another homeopathic medication. Chronic migraines and headaches are best treated with the help of the homeopathic practitioner, and it is not advisable to treat the condition yourself. Inform your doctor if you are considering or using any medicine or remedy.
