Oh no, diarrhea! Homeopathy to the rescue

It can be painful, debilitating, embarrassing, and even dangerous. However it turns out, we don’t want it. Don’t worry…homeopathy has a reputation for addressing even the most persistent cases of diarrhea.

In homeopathy, we consider the key symptoms of disease and an expression of what is going on in the body. So, instead of suppressing the disease, we find a substance in nature that includes the same symptoms that diarrhea exhibits. Is diarrhea exhausting? cramps? Is the person thirsty or hungry? How about the state of mind? Are you anxious, irritable, or just plain angry? Was there an incident that caused you emotional stress that preceded the diarrhoea? All these idiosyncrasies are the expression of diseases that occur together with diarrhea. Therefore, all must be considered. This is what makes homeopathy so unique and also effective. See the person, not the disease.

On the contrary, in conventional medicine, a drug that aborts diarrhea will be given. It will cause constipation. Is that what we want or do we want a resolution of the disease in its entirety? Every time we work with the body instead of against it, it is an opportunity to restore deeper health. Not just the diarrhea, but the general well-being long after the current illness is just a memory.

In homeopathy, we assume that diarrhea has a beneficial effect, so we use a remedy that mimics those same symptoms in an effort to hasten the termination of the illness. Certainly there are times when eliminating diarrhea is key, not by suppression, but on the contrary, stimulating the body to end the disease. Homeopathic remedies are prepared from substances that are highly diluted so that they become nanopharmacology. These minute doses elicit a response that will bring about the end of the disease.

These ideas are not new. Paracelsus wrote about them when he was chronicling medical history. He discussed the principles of using a substance that has the ability to cause symptoms very similar to those experienced by the person.

Homeopathy was popular in the United States and Europe at the turn of the last century due to its impressive results with serious infectious diseases. These epidemic diseases, such as cholera, yellow fever, scarlet fever, typhoid fever, and malaria, often present with diarrhoea. The mortality rate of these diseases when treated homeopathically was commonly one-half or even as low as one-eighth of that treated in conventional medical hospitals. At the turn of the century, there were 100 homeopathic hospitals in the United States and 22 schools of homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathy has had an illustrious history of healing, and although it is no longer part of the American medical scene, it has made a resurgence among those who are interested in medicine that is not dangerous. Diarrhea is just one of the illnesses it is capable of tackling.
Consider contacting a homeopath the next time you or a family member has diarrhea. Homeopathy is a reasoned medicine that offers excellent results.
