The developing society is demanded by everyone. It is a measurement of the growth of the country.When we talk about a country's progress we talk in terms of GDP and the foreign investments coming both of which depend on the industrialization and the amount of manufacturing taking place. This is good for our economic health and growth but we overlook its effects on our health or in fact we have overlooked the effects up till now.
People are now beginning to realize the health hazards of rapid industrialization and pollution. I some of the Indian cities the pollution levels are so high that the commuters can't walk on the road without a face mask. The pollution watch meters also records that in some of the cities the ppm of harmful materials such as arsenic in the air is well above the WHO standards that are considered safe for humans. As this gives rise to many diseases and health side effects people have started approaching various doctors.
Antibiotics that are available in the market are a storehouse of side effects and come with various other kinds of diseases and come with the tag “have it at your own risk”. So people have started turning towards another class of medicines known as homoeopathy and yoga. But the question that remains is “how to choose and whom to approach for advice on these matters”.
The field of Homoeopathy is not recognized in many countries however Naturopathic physicians (N.D.s)obtain doctoral certification (DHANP) in homeopathy through the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians.
The Homeopathic Certification Council was formed to provide certification to any individual. This test for certification is considered as one of the most challenging test given by any certifying agency in this field.The certification does not guarantee the legal right to practice homeopathy, though it does acts as a proof that the individual is authorized to practice.
Homeopathy is an ancient system of medicine that requires many years of study and practice. If a practitioner uses homeopathy, acupuncture, herbs, and massage it may suggest that he has not focused his learning on homeopathy. There are exceptions to this rule because some practitioners may have seriously studied other disciplines prior to, or after their involvement in homeopathy, most of these practitioners have mastered this art over a prolonged study over the years.
The best practitioners question you about each symptom in exquisite and sometimes infuriating detail. The first interview is at least one hour long, and many good practitioners will not prescribe a medicine at the end of this first interview because any prescription needs thorough understanding of the ailment and mental condition of the patient.
A significant part of this first interview should be devoted to detailed questions about your psychological state. This is required because these days most of the diseases are a direct result of a person's psychological state. The psychological state has a more pronounced effect on the well-being of an individual than the physical state.
These days none of the fields is unaffected by the use of technology and computers. So a well versed practitioner will always use a computer and will be updated with the latest findings in his field. The most informed practitioners know that they cannot have information about every symptom and every medicine in their head. Computers now provide access to a incredibly large store of information on homeopathic medicines these help practitioners be more accurate in their prescription.
