An expert outlines the significance of eating healthily while undergoing homoeopathic therapy, as well as what to consume and stay away from while doing so.
Our bodies get the nutrients they require from food to function correctly. Maintaining excellent health and warding off illnesses requires eating a balanced, healthful diet. However, healthy eating is also crucial for preventing and treating a number of diseases, therefore diet is seen as a vital part of patient treatment. The same is true with homoeopathic medicine.
We spoke with Dr. Kushal Banerjee, Senior Consultant-Homeopathy at Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic, to learn more about the significance of maintaining a balanced diet throughout a homoeopathic therapy.
Please explain the significance of maintaining a healthy diet while receiving homoeopathic therapy.
The homoeopathic medical system was the first to recognise the necessity of treating the patient as a whole while treating his ailment. As a result, the value of a healthy, balanced diet was recognised as a crucial factor in helping the patient get better. On the other hand, homoeopathy was the discipline that first grasped the absence of such a diet as the root of sickness.
Since homoeopathic remedies support the body’s immune system in fighting disease, it is crucial to provide the patient enough food to help him get well. Along with the diet’s composition, eating at set intervals and getting to bed early are also recommended. Better nutrition absorption and byproduct metabolism are the effects of this.
Do we need to avoid any certain foods when using homoeopathic medications?
It is a fallacy that there are several rules that must be fulfilled in order to receive homoeopathic treatment. Raw onion and pickle intake is often advised against in excess or on a regular basis. Strong mint or menthol scents, such as those found in gum or mouth fresheners, should be avoided. You can drink coffee in moderation. One or more extra limits may be necessary for some particular medications. The impact of homoeopathic remedies may be diminished by the scent of camphor.
Is it accurate to say that some foods can support homoeopathic remedies?
Although no particular foods are believed to enhance the effects of homoeopathic medications, specialised dietary guidance relating to the condition is very helpful in enhancing patient results. In reality, by changing a patient’s diet and teaching him about what things can make his sickness worse, many ailments can be healed.
