6 Common Homeopathy Myths Debunked

Pooja Maheshwary

If you're anything like me, you probably have a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to alternative healing practices. One such medical system that people are usually wary of is homeopathy. From whether homeopathic remedies are placebos to whether they include alcohol, there are plenty of myths related to homeopathy.

So, we reached out to Dr. Pankaj Aggarwal, MD and Ph.D. Senior Homeopath at Agrawal Homoeo Clinic, and asked him to share his expert insights and debunk these myths once and for all. Read on to know all that he shared!

Myth 1: Homeopathy Is Slow


This is not true at all. If you have any health issues you should consult a homeopathic doctor at once. Whether it is a cold, mild fever, or seasonal cough; even if you are suffering from it for a long time. In all these cases, homeopathy is a great solution to get instant relief. You will see the results from the very first dose itself as homeopathic medicines are fast and effective.  

Myth 2: Homeopathy Means Alcohol

Absolutely not, but it is also true that alcohol acts as a vehicle or medium of homeopathic medicines. Alcohol is used to preserve homeopathic medicines to increase their shelf life. When prescribed to patients, the liquid alcoholic tonics are used with pills that are further dried and hence evaporate the alcohol. Now, the pills have medicinal characteristics without any alcohol content. So, in conclusion, alcohol is only used to preserve the medicinal power of homeopathic medicines and in no manner is consumed by the patient.

Myth 3: Homeopathy Is Considered During The Last Stage Of Diseases

If a person is suffering from the last stage of cancer, stage V kidney diseases, asthma, or any disease-causing organ failure, homeopathic medicines help in providing relief from the pain and comfort to deal with the condition peacefully.

Myth 4: Homeopathy Only Cures The Symptoms, Not The Disease

It is a baseless and distorted misconception. Homeopathic medicines do not have any artificial or synthetic painkillers. It deals with the internal dynamics of diseases and gives permanent relief. Homeopathic treatment heals the patient from within that directly results in relief from the symptoms.

Myth 5: Homeopathic Remedies Are Placebos


From an early age, humankind has accepted the fact that all the universe and organisms living in it are connected. Homeopathic medicines are based on energy which will provide the path for future medications. Considering homeopathy as merely having a placebo effect is a total misconception. Homeopathy stimulates the vital force in our bodies towards healing and rectification of imbalances. All this can be realised only after one experiences it.

Myth 6: Homeopathy Doesn't Work

Homeopathic treatment can be trusted. Consult your homeopathic doctor and always tell them the exact and correct details of the problems and symptoms you are facing. Proper examination and medication show results faster and effectively.
