In Ayurvedic medicine, there are six basic therapeutic approaches with which diet, herbs and lifestyle can be utilized to deal with various disorders. In Homeopathic medicine the approach of treating “similar with similar” is just one among the six approaches of Ayurveda.
Homeopathy uses a method to create subtle medicines through a method of “potentizing” substances; herbal, mineral or animal. In Ayurveda this methodology is known and is part of Dravyaguna called Rasashastra. Methods are different in some respects, however the main concept and idea is the same.
it is possible to use Homeopathy as a medical system under the overview of Ayurveda – which a larger vision and field of experience. It is not possible to use Ayurveda under the directions of Homeopathy which are narrower and lacking the broader understanding of the life force, pathology and therapeutics. Homeopathic medicines work best on pathologies that have their origin in the mind or Manomayakosha. They work poorly on disorders that are caused by physical sources in the Annamayakosha. When used correctly Homeopathic preparations work well and are safe for children which is a great advantage.
