How does homeopathy help in the treatment of Crohn’s disease?
Dr. Vikas Sharma, a homeopath says “Unlike conventional treatment where immunosuppressants are used to manage the symptoms, homeopathy focuses on long-term, natural treatment of the same. With homeopathy the symptoms are not suppressed; instead, the cause is identified through the presentation of symptoms. Remedies for intestinal inflammation are made of natural substances. They gradually reduce the inflammation of the bowels and provide symptomatic relief. These work in the form of highly diluted chemicals that are charged to act as messages to stimulate the body’s restorative processes.”
