Is homeopathic medicine effective? For anxiety? Do i need an prescription or can I do a consult online?
With good homeopath!: Yes, homeopathic medicine can be effective for anxiety, if you work with an experienced homeopath. Ideally your case would be taken in person, which generally requires 2-3 hours. The homeopath should be well-trained, and online education alone will not do. Some homeopaths do offer skype sessions. A single remedy is prescribed based on your unique experience of anxiety, on multiple levels. ...Read more
I am not a doctor and if I self administer wrong homeopathic remedy after reading symptoms online. Will 2 drops three times a day for a month harm?, provided the wrong remedy is selected and i fail to match symptoms closely..no benefits.but any harm?
Nobody knows, but...: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really in the medication anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to cause any benefit. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless. Other non-homeopathic ingredients are often added and may have scents and flavors. ...Read more

Great question!: The current working hypothesis: homeopathic remedies gently stimulate your healing/restorative system in the specific way it's disturbed -- which can be perceived through the symptoms you have. If the remedy is close enough to this symptoms pattern, your system responds by correcting itself. Your symptoms gradually resolve, and resilience improves.

Yes, esp. combined..: Homeopathy can help most health problems, including hypertension, but will work far better combined with diet & lifestyle changes. And "help" is a key word- it often helps but is not always a cure. Treatment is highly individualized.

The "x" means a potency on the decimal scale, such as 12x. ...Read more

Unknown: Homeopathy's exact mechanism for working is unknown. This is also true of many treatments used in conventional medicine. Some research implicates the model of epitaxy: the transfer of information, not material, from the surface of one material (usually solid) to another material (usually liquid) -- with homeopathic remedies. Human bodies contain at least 70% water, so this may be a testable idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
