I would like to receive Clínica Omega Zeta's newsletter
It is a therapeutic method that consists of giving highly diluted substances, according Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia's Norms, with the aim of triggering the body defenses and achieving improvement or cure of diseases. Homeopathic medicines, like any medication, are prescribed by doctors and handed over to the patients by a pharmacist.
A homeopathic consultation includes a lengthy interview and an evaluation of many aspects related to the patient. Health problems, medical history, sleep patterns, food preferences, personality and behavior patterns. With these data, the doctor will build up a picture of the patient and will decide which treatment might be best.
Homeopathic treatments are particularly effective in infectious diseases caused by bacteria or virus (particularly upper respiratory infections such as pharyngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, tracheitis…), as well as in fungal diseases.
One of the advantages of homeopathic treatments is that homeopathic medicines have neither contraindications nor side effects. Moreover, substances are supplied in such small quantities that pose no risk to young children or pregnant women.
Some patients might feel worse soon after starting the treatment for a short period of time. This happens because the body stimulates the symptoms for a short time and tries to restore the health at the same time.
It can also happen that a pre-existing condition worsens. This should not be a cause for alarm, but an evidence that we are using the appropriate medication. Worsening of a pre-existing condition is rare and if it happens, it is usually brief.
