Homeopathy is a holistic system of treatment that looks at patients as unique individuals and hence, treats each patient according to his/her distinctive body type, mental state, emotions, health records etc. Homeopathy has been in existence for over 200 years now and is accepted as the second largest therapeutic system by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Homeopathic therapy is developed by German Physician Samuel Hahnemann who originated it in the eighteenth century. He coined the name based on a Latin phrase “similia similibus curentur” meaning “like cures like”. According to this notion, a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy body when taken in large amounts can treat the similar disease when consumed in small amounts. This is done to trigger the body’s own healing ability and natural defense system.
Homeopathy is widely popular in India and South America. However, people across the world have started recognizing its benefits and relying on this natural therapy to cure various diseases. The popularity of homeopathic treatment owes mainly to its mild, non-addictive, and side-effect-free nature.
How Homeopathy helps to treat liver diseases
The liver is the strongest and most vigorous part of our body. It is the largest solid organ that, mainly, detoxifies the blood coming from the right digestive tract. However, it executes the most critical, 500 functions in our body such as synthesizing and metabolizing proteins, fats,and carbohydrates; producing the bile that absorbs fatty acids; secreting bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones, and drugs; storing glycogen, vitamins, and minerals.
Being the most essential body organ, the liver requires special attention, which, unfortunately, most people don’t pay. The major diseases that affect and damage the liver and its functioning ability are cirrhosis (scarring), hepatitis (inflammation of the liver), fatty liver, and liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). The main causes of these liver diseases are obesity, alcohol consumption, and viral infections.
Where other treatments fail or pose side-effect threat, homeopathy comes to aid with its natural and gentle therapeutic nature. Homeopathy helps in minimizing the unease prompted by symptoms such as pain in joints, muscles, diarrhea, fever, jaundice, dark-colored urine, loss of appetite, liver enlargement, etc. The medicinal drugs used in homeopathic treatment revive liver cells, thereby, improving the lifespan of the patient. To those starting the medication early, Homeopathy is synonymous with blessing by preventing the onset of any kind of complexities associated with liver diseases.
