Homeopathy vs Allopathy

One of the big problems in today’s health care is the extent to which marketing influences have confused the truth about health. Conventional medicine has traditionally been referred to as “allopathic” by homeopaths. In Greek “pathos” means suffering or illness, “allo” means different and “homeo” means same.

– Allopathy searches for an alleged cause of the main symptoms and a disease name, based on generalities, homeopathy seeks only to build a complete picture of the patient’s suffering that stresses its rich individuality.
– Homeopathic medicines have similar biological effects to the illness
while allopathic medicines have different biological effects from the illness.
– Homeopathic medicines initiate a self-healing process, acting indirectly on the diseased cells and organs of the body while allopathic medicines act directly upon the tissues and the cells of the body, without any effects upon the body’s healing powers.
– Another important distinction between the two systems concerns their therapeutic aim. While homeopathy aims to gently and safely induce a full restoration of healthy and autonomous functioning of the whole organism through natural healing by enhancing the innate vital powers, allopathy chemically picks symptoms off one by one or in clusters, with no regard to the likely longer term consequences of such interventionist actions.
– Homeopathic medicines are free of side effects and toxicity while allopathic medicines may cause side effects in some cases and in the worst cases, may hasten or lead to death from toxicity.
– Homeopathic illness is felt to be a mere sign of biological imbalance which remedies try to correct. Conventionally defined “illness” is merely the reification of the imbalance while Allopathic illness as defined conventionally is felt to be a valid existential construct, equivalent to the sum of symptoms and physical manifestations.
– In homeopathic there is not a division made between mental and physical aspects of of health. The whole person is always treated while in allopathic, the mental and physical are felt to be sometimes overlapping or mutually influencing but separate areas of health, treated by different specialists.
