Infections typically do not have a single cause, but are rather the result of complex actions and reactions within the body. These can be caused by incidents or events that take place within the body or in the environment.
Bacteria cause illness when the person's immune system, the body's natural protection mechanism, is weak and not strong enough to fight invading pathogens.
The Homeopathic View of Infection
Modern medical science treats infections with antibiotics. Antibiotics are effective in killing disease-causing pathogens but fail to address the underlying factor that led to the infection in the first place. Bacteria will return if the environment is favorable to their growth.
Moreover, many times antibiotics fail to differentiate and kill good bacteria along with bad bacteria. Our body is full of microorganisms that provide health benefits, generally termed as good or beneficial bacteria.
When good bacteria die, the sites occupied by them are now free to be colonized by new bacteria, some of which cause serious and previously unrecognized diseases.
Homeopathy has a holistic view of ailments. Homeopathic remedies address the underlying cause and do not always subdue the symptoms to give immediate results.
Rather than focusing on killing bacteria, the science of homeopathy focuses on strengthening the body's inherent ability to fight invading pathogens.
A homeopathic physician studies the personality of the patient carefully before prescribing any remedy.
Antibiotics are Ineffective against Viral Infections
A vast majority of all infections are caused by viruses that do not respond to antibiotics. The antiviral drugs that are available are heavy on the pocket and also have serious side effects.
Homeopathic remedies can help you in fighting viral infections effectively.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like' – the substance that causes a disease will cure the disease when administered in a diluted form.
Homeopathy can be effective for viral infectionsÂ including influenza-like symptoms, viral coughs and serious viral infections like herpes cold sores and genital herpes.
Homeopathic Remedies for Herpes
Herpes outbreaks appear like poison ivy rash – blisters and scabs accompanied by painful burning and stinging.
The most common oral homeopathic remedy for herpes outbreaks is Rhus Toxicodendron (Rhus Tox in short), which is an extremely diluted form of poison ivy.
However, after studying the patient and the patient's personality along with the pathological condition, a homeopathic physician may prescribe any one or a combination of other remedies that have been known to help herpes.
These include Natrum Muraticum, Sepia, Arsenicum Album, Graphites, Thuja Occidentalis, Calendula Officianalis and a few others.
For immediate relief, you may look for balms and creams made from a combination of some of these for topical application.
