The best health care option

As the cost of care rises, individuals and families are exploring multiple health care options. Homeopathy may help you manage long-term conditions and diseases and also maintain your overall health.

Homeopathic remedies—with their “like treating like” formula—encourage the body to heal itself. Although symptoms are treated on a case-by-case basis, the ultimate goal is to restore health to the whole body and then keep the individual well and strong, without being troubled by chronic disease.

In addition to homeopathy, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) options include

Those that focus on healing the whole person
• Homeopathy – as detailed above and on my website:
• Ayurveda -- ancient healing practices from India
• Naturopathy – acupuncture, exercise, herbal remedies, lifestyle strategies, and massage intended to help your body heal naturally
• Traditional Chinese medicine -- acupuncture, attention to diet and exercise, herbal remedies, massage, and practices that date back more than 2000 years promote healing

Those that balance or unblock your energy
• Magnetic therapy
• Qi gong
• Reiki

Those that manipulate parts of your body
• Chiropractic medicine
• Massage and other body-based techniques
• Osteopathic manipulative treatment
• Physical therapy
• Reflexology

Those that rely on your mind to aid the healing process in your body
• Psychotherapy
• Art therapy
• Meditation
• Prayer
• Relaxation techniques

Any of these practices may also be strengthened with the addition of supplements, targeted to strengthen the body, including
• Herbal remedies
• Dietary modifications
• Minerals
• Vitamins

The World Health Organization reported that 65% of the population used CAM therapies in 2002. This number will undoubtedly continue to rise as US adults self-diagnose medical conditions and seek treatment, largely based on their Internet research.  

Consider your CAM options but consult your healthcare professional if your condition persists or worsens. A combination of homeopathic treatment and conventional medicine may offer the best option in some cases.

Don’t believe everything you read online. Talk with your homeopath about your concerns and your healthcare coverage before your determine the best health care option for you and/or your family members.
