There is no miracle cure for obesity, and most reputable weight loss solutions emphasize that diet, exercise and behavioral changes are more important than weight loss medications. Whether you choose natural weight loss or herbal weight loss, you will be required to adhere to a strict, healthy diet and exercise in conjunction with the remedy or herb that may have been prescribed.
Homeopathy has been a popular mode of treatment in the Europe and some parts of Southeast Asia. It is now catching the fancy of the American public, more so because all homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances like herbs, plants and metals.
This may make the inexperienced a bit wary of homeopathy. The important thing to remember is that the degree of dilution of homeopathic remedies is so large that the percentage of the original substance cannot be determined in the prepared remedy. It may appear to some that a few drops of a highly diluted substance may not be effective but studies have since long established that homeopathic remedies can be highly effective when prescribed by a proper and detailed study of the symptoms of the patient.
Basically homeopathy attempts to correct digestive disorders, improve metabolism and help in easy elimination – the three main prerequisites for reducing weight. The medicines are prescribed after studying the pattern of symptoms as they appear in the patient. A homeopath questions the patient extensively before prescribing the remedy for the individual.
Conventional medications for obesity inhibit absorption of nutrients or induce a feeling of satiation through drugs. Such drugs have never been approved by the FDA and are known to cause side effects like weakness, nausea, vomiting and bowel disorders. On the other hand, homeopathic remedies are safe and work in unison with a regulation diet.
