First, it is essential to distinguish between the idiosyncrasy-based homeopathy and the pathology-based homeopathy, the first applied mainly on the basis of the psychosomatic aspects of the patient through constitutional remedies, the second applied both on the basis of the pathophysiology and functional disorders of the patient and of the pathology of the disease(s). ‘Homeopathic Medicine’ employs both the above therapeutic approaches according to the individual health requirements of each patient and applies homeopathy as a complementary medicine of high quality, safety and effectiveness.
Cylex 1. Where is homeopathy popular? Do you think it is more popular in the last years?
Homeopathic Medicine: Homeopathy is more popular in cases where conventional medicine has proved to be incompetent or even followed by serious side-effects or has failed. Also, Homeopathy is more popular among people with higher educational and cultural level. Official statistics show a steady increase in the demand of homeopathic treatment.
Cylex 2. What are the physical, mental and emotional aspects of homeopathy?
Homeopathic Medicine: Homeopathy may apply at all levels of the totality of the organism according to the principles of similarity and individualization in each case. Certainly, the selection of the indicated homeopathic remedies and the suitable potency (“dosage”), dilution, combinations and timing of doses are critical for the outcome of treatment. So, homeopathic pharmacology may be applied successfully in both mental/emotional and physical ailments and may regulate any function like neurophysiological, immune, hormonal, etc. Re-establishment of homeostasis, i.e of the physiological equilibrium is the target of homeopathic treatment, according the classic principles of Physiology, Psychosomatic medicine and Pathology.
Cylex 3. How can the correct homeopathic remedy be found?
Homeopathic Medicine: The indicated homeopathic remedies may be found only after a thorough and long training in Homeopathic Pharmacology, the so called Materia Medica. Homeopathic prescribing is both a Science and Art and in serious cases demands high level of skills in both Homeopathy and Pathology
Cylex 4. What are the sources of Homeopathic remedies ?
Homeopathic Medicine: The original substances used for the preparation of Homeopathic remedies are mainly herbs like those used in Phytotherapy, chemical substances, animal or human products, conventional drugs, etc.Whatever is the source, the final product does not contain but infinitesmall or even not at all molecules of the originally used material after progressive dilutions at the level of 1: 1.000.000.000 or more. The pharmacologically active ingredient is not of any chemical nature, but it is a biophysically carried pharmacologic information on the water molecules contained in the homeopathic pill or tablet, etc.
Cylex 5. What is the difference between homeopathy and conventional medicine?
Homeopathic Medicine: Their origin, their basic principles and their targets are the same and they may be found to Hippocrates, Claude-Bernard, Louis Pasteur,Rudolph Virchow and other great pioneers in the history of Medicine. Homeopathy follows more the synthetic and integrated model of medical approach, while Conventional Medicine uses more the causative and analytical model of medical approach. Homeopathy is much more orientated to Medical Physiology, while Conventional Medicine is much more orientated to adopt modern Technology, Physics and Mathematics. Both, Homeopathy and Conventional Medicine constitute the modern Rational Western Medicine.
Cylex 6. What are two examples that you could give us about great results that have been seen through what you do?
Homeopathic Medicine: The following two examples I could give are: 1.Regeneration of an adrenal gland after complete bilateral surgical excision 2.Restoration of the permeability of the pyelo-ureteral junction of the one kidney in a case of congenital stenosis of this area.
