There are a host of benefits you can obtain from the use of herbal medications instead of traditionally prescribed medicine. One of them is that there are far fewer side effects than traditional doctor prescribed medications.
Also natural herbal remedies work in sync naturally with your body system and this helps the body to heal itself naturally. Herbal supplements and medications are also cheaper than traditional medications. Because large pharmaceutical companies have had to pay millions of dollars for drug development and clinical trials. This has had a drastic impacts on the price of pharmaceutical medications.
Many don’t know it but herbs and natural cures and remedies work within the body on a system level. This means that many times a single herb will cure multiple diseases.
Similar to your typical health care professional, homeopaths are trained professionals who have a very deep background in prescribing various herbs and tinctures for any given illness their patients might be facing.
Homeopathic doctors are very well trained in the many aspects of prescribing herbs to help heal illnesses. They also know the effects the drug has on various body systems as well as what the right dosage is for treating sick patients. Your typical homeopathic doctor will use a combination of dry herbs, liquid extracts as well as tinctures and teas for treat a patients bodily illness.
Just like medical doctors, your homeopath will make note of both your family and medical history. They will also ask you about your current medical condition and record that information before he or she begins treating you.
Your homeopathic doctor will then give you a tincture or herbal remedy to treat your condition or illness. This is a much more advisable and safer route than to attempt to diagnose and treat yourself without the professional guidance of a homeopath.
A pretty common myth is that home remedies don’t have any side effects. In reality they do and when dosages are off or the herbal remedy you receive is of the wrong type side effects are experienced.
After all mineral water is as natural as it gets isn’t it? But if you were to say drink a huge amount of it like 5 gallons in 5 minutes the result would be that you would in fact internally drowned. So this very same principle applies as well to the field of home remedies and herbal remedies.
When taking herbal remedies use the lowest potency dose you can. High potency natural remedies can have side effects. Then is simply wait and keep watch of your condition. If things don’t improve then try another dose. Don’t take a double dose immediately with the assumption that more is good.
Often home remedies and natural remedies take some time to work. So waiting a bit and keeping an eye on your condition is important. Take only the dosage prescribed or written on the label and in all situations it is a really good idea to seek the console of a trained homeopathic doctor before beginning any treatment.
When herbal remedies are used wisely and are prescribed by a professional homeopath, they can definitely save you a great deal of money in addition to saving you from serious OTC drug prescribed side effects and even unnecessary surgeries.
