How does homeopathy aid digestion?
Homeopathy recognizes stomach to be susceptible to psychosomatic stimuli as well mental and emotional stresses that can result in functional impairement. It aims to treat this synergistically through its unique combination of various medicines. It addresses overacidity by regulating the parietal cells, detoxifies the stomach and intestinal tissues and provides relief from symptoms like stomach pressure, gastritis, burning sensations etc.
Homeopathic medicines and supplements assist in the metabolism of essential nutrients like protein, fat and carbohydrates in our diet. This makes it possible for the intestines to absorb nutrients in our food. This natural process actually begins in the mouth when our salivary glands secrete digestive enzymes called amylase, protease and lipase. It begins with break down of starch into sugars followed by proteins, cellulose, and other foodstuffs. Without the digestive enzymes we would not be able to get essential nutrients leading to indigestion, diarrhea and gas
