Commonly Used Medicines for Common Ailments in Homeopthy

Common conditions of ill health and the Homeopathic remedies

Homeopathy system does not have specific medicines disease wise whereas other systems claims that their systems have specific medicines for specific diseases. Homeopathy treats the diseases as of the deviations of health of patient as such and not as disease of each part separately as if these parts are independent from the patient It can be observed that if there is pain in a particular organ, the individual is inconvenienced not the organ alone. Again take a specific case like Headache. In other systems for everybody's and every type of headache, any of the group of medicines for head ache is prescribed. But in homeopathy the medicine is prescribed on the basis of several factors like the cause, the exact spot of the head, the side and other conditions like whether it starts gradually and stops gradually or starts and stops suddenly or goes from one side to other side etc which are different for each individual. There are several such differences between the head ache of one patient from the other. The list will be exhaustive and is not possible to list all of them. Hence the medicine also will be different and even the potency (strength) may differ. The same hold good for every other problem. Therefore, the correct procedure is to go to a competent Homeopath.

However, there are some medicines which will work for majority of patients suffering from certain conditions. A list of the condition with the possible remedies are given below. There are certain norms to be observed for giving the medicines. These are to be strictly followed, because what is involved is the precious lives.
