Many people choose herbal medication over the more traditional prescribed medication for many reasons. It is believed that herbal medication has fewer side effects; they are natural and are also cheaper because millions of pounds are not required for drug development and clinical trials, and because herbal medication works on a system level, a single herb will more often than not clear up numerous problems.
Homeopaths are trained and licensed professionals like a typical doctor that are trained in prescribing herbal remedies for a variety of illness/diseases. A Homeopath will be trained in areas of herbal supplements, their properties and the impact they have on the body and what doses are appropriate for each individual.
A Homeopath uses a variety of herbal extracts, pills, tinctures; dry hers and herbal creams to treat various conditions. An initial consultation with a Homeopath will be similar to an initial visit to a doctor. They will take your family and medical history and take note of any current medical conditions and medication history before any treatments in undertaken. The first time you are given a prescription of herbal medicine you will be given the lowest dose with the least possible side effects. One thing to remember is that herbal medications can take longer to get into your system than prescribed medication, so don’t be in a hurry to go back to the homeopath is you don’t feel better immediately, and don’t up the dose until you are advised to do so.
The main advantages of using a homeopath are that it can save you money and more importantly save you from serious side effects and even unnecessary surgeries.
