Although, most of the rest of the world, has a medical/ health system, based on more of a wellness approach, than we do, in the United States, we, often, accept certain traditional approaches, without asking many questions, while refusing, to even consider, others, which we consider, alternative! The reality is, while the actual administration, of homeopathy, and vaccinations, differs in several ways, there are specific similarities, which, should not be overlooked, or minimized, Shouldn’t the primary goal, of any health care, be, enhancing and improving health, and happiness, and strengthening our immune systems, so we are resistant, to many ailments, diseases, etc? Today, there are some, who consider, themselves, anti – vaxers, who resist using, even, tried, and proven treatments, for the greater good, as well as one’s own health, and well – being. These include treatments for measles, mumps, smallpox, etc. Others state, they believe, homeopathy, and homeopathic remedies, are false treatments, although, in most of the rest of the world, are considered, and recognized, as an essential part of an overall treatment regimen. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, why, both vaccinations, and using homeopathic remedies, correctly, and, as indicated, make sense, and, are, in certain ways, based on similar premises.
1. Vaccinations: Before we had vaccinations, many individuals risked death, and suffered debilitating illnesses. Since these vaccines, have become common – place, we’ve witnessed a dramatic decrease in the incidence of these diseases. However, in the past few years, diseases, such as measles, which seemed eliminated, have resurfaced, because of those, who believe rumors and unproven safety allegations, and have refused to have their children, vaccinated. The concept, or principle, of most vaccines, is to introduce, a very small amount of a specific disease, so, our bodies, enhance their immune system, and develop an immunity, to these. This, also, explains, why, those who has certain diseases, such as measles, become immune to further exposures.
2. Homeopathy: Most medical systems, unlike ours, use homeopathy, and specific homeopathic remedies, under the auspices and direction of a qualified health practitioner, as the first recourse. They use both allopathy, or conventional medicine, as well as alternative approaches, in a wellness approach to health care. Homeopathy is based on introducing minute amounts of a specific ailment, in order to create a greater degree of resistance, and immunity. When diseases aren’t life – threatening, or require acute actions, the result is addressing the cause of the illness, rather than merely, covering up, or focusing on the symptoms.
Since both vaccinations, and homeopathy, both introduce minute amounts of a disease or ailment, in order to build and create immunity, why do so many Americans, take vaccinations, for granted, but have doubts, about homeopathy? Do yourself a favor, and learn, as much as possible, about wellness alternatives, and discuss these with your health practitioner.
