Know it all yourself
Sometimes we aren’t sure which mode of treatment to go for as there are varied opinions and reviews we come across and this can lead us to a situation of dilemma regarding health and well-being. Here the integrative mode of treatment can prove to be helpful as it allows you the freedom to include various modes of treatment integrated in the best and balanced way to manage your case. Today this article will revolve around the working of two very popular modes of treatment across the world and also how compatible both of them can be together. Yes, we are going to discuss how compatible homeopathy and allopathy can be when taken together? To understand the compatibility we first need to know the basics about conventional and modern medicine and how they work.
The modus operandi of homeopathy:
Homeopathy follows the principle of “similia similibus curantur” which means like cures like. It was discovered by Master Hahnemann that if a substance can cause disease its potentized ( a process through which homeopathic remedies are prepared ) form also has the power to cure it. He tested this fact by ingesting few drachms of cinchona bark to develop malaria-like symptoms and also treating it with the potentized form of the same. He repeated these experiments many times on different individuals and finally concluded that yes like cures like.

Homeopathy is a holistic science that follows nature’s law of cure and doesn’t believe in any kind of invasive healing techniques. It considered the symptoms patient is suffering from and cures it and once the symptom vanishes the suffering does as the symptoms are the outward manifestation of the disease.
It also believes to treat “man as a whole” and not as a separate entity of organ, flesh, and blood. It suggests individualizing every case as new include physical as well as mental suffering so a constitutional picture can be built which is matched with the drug picture to reach the similimum.
Where homeopathic medicines act:
Homeopathic remedies act through the sentient nerves and start their action immediately after taking it. The period for their activity ranges from few days to a week depending on medicine to medicine. Another route of administration apart from oral is olfaction and also sometimes in some cases as an external application.
How effective homeopathic remedies are?
Homeopathic remedies selected through symptom similarity are most suited to reverse the suffering of the patient. The remedy acts only on the susceptible or the deranged interior of the person through sentient nerves and does not affect the health or ordered functions. Hence, it does not carry any side effects and maintains a complete harmony between the mind, body, and spirit.
How does Allopathy work?
Allopathy works on the principle of “contraria contraris”, it believes in treating the disease and the site or organ where in particular the complaint or suffering lies. Most of the allopathic medicines have active principles which are pharmaceutically derived and are absorbed in the body through the gastrointestinal route. Allopathy in a way tries to alleviate the symptoms of the disease by attacking or affecting the natural defense mechanism of the body. It can be concluded as working against nature’s law of cure hence contrary to the homeopathic principle.
Can homeopathy and allopathy be taken together?
The answer to this question would be “YES”, homeopathy and allopathy mode of treatment can be taken together. The reason is that homeopathy and allopathy both act on a different principle and follow different modus operandi. Their mode of action and absorption also differs where homeopathy acts through sentient nerves thus nervous system plays an important role here, whereas allopathy acts through the Gastrointestinal route or vascular medium. Hence, none of them hinder each other’s pathway of action or healing being opposite in nature and having different susceptibility.
There is no change in the efficacy of either of them when taken together too.
Where taking both homeopathy and allopathy together are suggested?
Being complete science and a very popular mode of treatment both allopathy and homeopathy are widely used. Following a single mode of treatment is best as it is easier to note the symptoms and relieve the patient’s feelings in consecutive follow-ups. But in certain cases of chronic lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, thyroid disorders, diabetes, and deficiency disorders there’s a life-saving pill that needs to be taken lifelong and can’t be missed. If such people want to opt for homeopathy as it is holistic and works on symptom similarity correcting the disturbance in the interior by supporting the natural defense system are most welcome because in such cases the life-saving pill and natural homeopathic medicine to relieve the complaints and improve the quality of life can be taken together. Other conditions where there is an immediate risk for life such as cancer homeopathy can be taken along with allopathy and also during chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In the cases of fractures and ruptures, there are homeopathic medicines that promote bone reunion and ease the discomfort along with allopathic management. In such cases, you can club allopathy together with homeopathy. Undoubtedly both are quite effective and complete modes of treatment that are capable of doing good to the suffering humanity.
