Q: What is Homeopathy?

A: Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, and is very affordable.

The word Homeopathy comes from two Greek words “homoios” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning disease or suffering. It is based on the law of “Likes Cure Likes” and was first formulated by the renowned German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1789. A minimal, homeopathic dose of a substance that would normally cause symptoms (such as the rash and itching from exposure to the poison ivy plant) in a healthy person, when given to a sick person exhibiting those symptoms, will effect a cure. This is why people can often take homeopathic Rhus Toxicodendron (poison ivy plant) to cure their allergic reaction to poison ivy.

Homeopathic medicines are manufactured in strict accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). With a history of experience spanning over 200 years, homeopathic medicines are used by millions of patients and recommended by health care professionals around the world to relieve many acute health conditions such as allergies, coughs, colds, flu, stress, muscle pain, and teething. Under the care of a trained health care practitioner, homeopathic medicines are successfully used for both acute illnesses, as well as chronic conditions, like asthma, depression, hypertension, and arthritis.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), homeopathy is the second largest medical system for primary health care in the world. It is prevalent and widely accepted in many parts of the world including Europe, where over 100 million people use it on a regular basis. In America, during the early 1900s, the most prestigious medical schools in this country were homeopathic.

Q: How do I take homeopathic medicines?

A: Homeopathic medicated pellets contain only a little of an active ingredient for the treatment of disease. These are known as highly diluted or “potentiated” substances. Homeopathic medicines should be placed under the tongue of adults and children or in the cheek of an infant, where they will dissolve. It is preferable to take homeopathic medicines apart from meals. The appropriate dosage is always shown on the labeling and should be followed unless differently directed by your Health Care Professional.

Q: Do homeopathic medicines have any side effects?

A: Homeopathic medicines above 8x or 4C have a very low risk of side effects and no contraindications.

The labeling of any lower attenuation products that might have concerns will provide appropriate warnings. Some homeopathic products are restricted to sale on a prescription basis to ensure they are used properly to obviate any problems.

They can be safely taken with other conventional medications and are sometimes recommended to complement other treatments.

Q: Are homeopathic medicines regulated?

A: Homeopathic medicines are regulated as drugs under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA). The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has established a comprehensive national regulatory policy governing homeopathic product compliance concerning manufacturing, and labeling; the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has regulatory authority for all OTC drug advertising. The Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) is recognized by the FDCA as the authority for the manufacture of homeopathic medicine. All homeopathic medicines must be manufactured in accordance with the guidelines of the HPUS, and manufacturers are regularly inspected by the FDA and must comply with all current Good Manufacturing Practices.

Q: Can I take an overdose or too much of a homeopathic medicine?

A: Because of the extremely small amount of highly diluted active ingredients, you need not worry about suffering an overdose by taking more homeopathic medicine than the recommended dosage. In dilutions above 8X or 4C, any toxic properties of the original substance have disappeared; the medicine is safe and sold over-the-counter (OTC).

Q: How should I store my homeopathic medicines?

A: Extremes of temperature are never advised for homeopathic medicines. Refrigerating or freezing homeopathic remedies is not recommended, nor should they be kept anywhere they will be exposed to high temperatures, such as a closed vehicle on a hot sunny summer day. It’s best to keep containers tightly sealed and away from extreme heat or direct sunlight. Due to the high humidity often found in a bathroom, the common “medicine cabinet” is a bad place to keep any kind of medicine.

What are Vision Screenings?

Vision screenings are not comprehensive eye exams. Screenings usually take only a few minutes and are often performed by volunteers who are not eye care professionals.

In many cases, vision screenings are nothing more than a visual acuity test where you’re asked to identify the smallest letters you can on a vision chart across the room.

Vision screenings typically are designed to only detect subnormal visual acuity and major vision problems — as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. They generally are ineffective for detecting more subtle vision problems and potentially sight-robbing eye diseases.

People who fail a vision screening (usually because their visual acuity is worse than 20/40) are made aware of this and are encouraged to visit an eye doctor so they can have their vision problem professionally diagnosed and treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery.

Are children’s vision screenings helpful?

Good vision is essential for children to reach their full academic potential. It’s been widely stated that roughly 80 percent of what children learn in school is presented visually, and vision problems can have a profound effect on learning.

According to the American Optometric Association, an estimated 20 percent of preschool children have vision problems. Other research shows that 24 percent of adolescents with correctable refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism) don’t have their vision fully corrected with up-to-date prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Passing a vision screening

Even if your child passes a school vision screening, it doesn’t guarantee he or she has perfect vision or has all the required visual skills needed for optimum performance in the classroom.

In fact, a number of studies have identified significant challenges and shortcomings of children’s vision screenings, including:

  • Children with significant learning-related vision problems being able to pass simple school vision screenings
  • Poor consistency of screening results among different volunteers conducting the testing
  • Parents being unaware their child failed a vision screening
  • Lack of follow-up to make sure children who fail screening actually have an eye exam
  • Also, poor standardization of vision screening standards among different states and lack of reporting requirements make it impossible to adequately evaluate the effectiveness of school vision screenings.
Do adults need more frequent eye exams?

On the other end of the age spectrum, many older Americans often forgo routine eye exams and falsely believe that free vision screenings offer adequate monitoring and protection of their eyesight.

This is extremely dangerous, since the most common causes of blindness — glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration — increase with age. Vision loss often can be prevented or reduced if these conditions are diagnosed and treated early. But the only way this can be done is to have routine comprehensive eye exams.

Don’t take chances with your eyesight as you get older. It may be sufficient to have a comprehensive eye exam every two years in your early adult life. But if you’re over age 60, have an annual eye exam to preserve your vision and make sure you are seeing the world as clearly as possible.
