Homeopathy medicines – A Guide for the Old, Poor and the Needy people

The last stage in human life is Old age. At this stage old people will encounter negligence from others including their families in some worst cases. Not only this, they will develop self negligence. Due to Competitiveness, tension due to pressure of work, spending leisure time on viewing TV, Children’s education etc., youth also neglects them. Though the youth have love and affection towards them , they are not spending sufficient time as expected  by the old people due to the  above reasons. Youth working in foreign countries is also one of the reasons. As a  result, old  people  are getting mental imbalance. They feel  that their vast experience in dealing things and  their sacrifices  for the family have no recognition by their kith and kin.Neglected presence of the old  people in taking decisions in important family matters will lead them to distress and self non-attention over the diseases from which they suffer. As a result they develop a tendency  “What for we are to live?” At this stage if they have some safe Homeo Medicines with them, they can safely use them. If they use these medicines for 4 or 5 days most of their health problems will be solved. If the old age people are from poor families, they can lead their future life peacefully by using these medicines without spending much money and rushing to the hospitals.

Irrespective of the age, if the people are really poor and if they can’t afford the normal conventional medical treatment and expenses with their income, they can switch to Homeopathic medicines which are relatively cheaper but give long lasting and in many cases, permanent results. But only thing to be noted about Homeopathic medicines is that they don’t act instantly in case there is a need of first aid for any severe injury or illness, for which there is no other alternative than to go with the normal conventional medical treatment. However as a preventive measure, Homeopathic medicine is comparatively better than the conventional allopathic medicines. For chronic diseases which cannot be cured completely, these medicines will give some relief to them. Even during their last days these Homeo Medicines will give peace to the  old  people. For this purpose some information regarding the use of these Homeo medicines for the old people have been selected  and briefly shown below. Please verify them with your Homeo doctor or consultant, use them and be benefitted.
