Nosodotherapy is an alternative discipline, which is part of homeopathic therapy, which acts through the nosodes to rebalance the body. Let's find out better.
What is nosodotherapy?
The word nosodotherapy comes from the Greek word nosos (disease) and it is an alternative therapeutic practice, created in the 1800s by Constantine Hering, one of the pioneers of modern homeopathy. This practice consists in the administration of homeopathic products deriving from pathogenic substances, called nosodes, such as bacteria, viruses, pathogenic secretions, polluting substances, sick tissues, poisons, metabolic products of man or animals, inactivated so as not to make them infected or virulent, in order to create a reaction in the body that responds to the care the person needs.
How does it work?
The underlying principle is quite similar to that of the vaccine: it stimulates the body to react towards something harmful; however, while inoculations introduce harmful, inactivated substances, but still in quantities that can sometimes be subject to side effects and allergic or unwanted reactions, in nosode therapy the harmful substance has decreased to such an extent that it cannot cause any allergic reaction or dangerous by the body . There are two types of nosodotherapy: the "autonosodoterapia" based on the principle of isopathy, or the substances come from the patient himself, and a "heteronosodotherapy" for which the substances supplied come from the same illness as the patient, but not from the patient himself. In some cases, after the administration of the product, the so-called "homeopathic aggravation" can occur, which consists in the body's attempt to get rid of pathogenic substances through the reaction and intervention of some organs, such as kidneys, intestine, skin, lungs or liver. As with homeopathized allopaths, the principle of like rather than equal, "simillima non aequalia" applies to the choice of the nosode to be prescribed for nosode therapy. Nosodes are found in the form of granules, drops and vials, both drinkable and injectable . The quantity and frequency of administration are personal and vary according to the criteria with which the nosode was chosen, a good rule is to rely on a competent homeopathic doctor.
What ailments nosodotherapy cures
The nosode therapy finds its use in the diseases of cellular phases, in the inhibited, retoxic phases, in autoimmune diseases, in the "psoric diseases" of Hahnemann, in allergic diseases, in all cases of chronic septic processes and in all those diseases in which the risks of any complications are particularly pronounced . The nosodes are also called "constitution drugs", as their field of action affects the organism in its totality and together and represent that missing link in the chain of reactions that lead the organism towards equilibrium and the disappearance of pathogenic condition.
Who is nosodotherapy designed for?
Nosodotherapy is a type of treatment that can affect those who suffer from chronic diseases, autoimmune diseases, allergies and simply want to try an alternative type of treatment to classical therapy. For those approaching this type of therapy, the advice is to contact a good homeopath who can prescribe the homeopathic Eav (Electro-Acupuncture -Voll) test to the patient or resonance bioenergetic test, using a device that consists of a meter electric connected to a handpiece, which is placed on specific points of feet and hands that correspond to the Chinese acupuncture meridians. Since the human body naturally emits a certain energetic value caused by the conductivity of the skin, the apparatus can measure the variations of this value according to the points that are touched by the handpiece and determine lack of functionality or exaggerated functionality, therefore inflammation, of the part. Test tubes are also included in the test, containing homeopathic remedies. If the remedy contained in the vial is the right one, the appliance will register a rebalancing in the critical point . The doctor therefore prescribes that particular remedy specific to the person for a certain period of time, until the balance is achieved.
The law in Italy and abroad
Nosodic therapy is a therapeutic possibility, together with allopathy and homeopathy, which is equivalent to law. If homeopathy enjoys the consent of the population, the same cannot be said from a legislative point of view, in fact in the beautiful country there is no specific legislation on homeopathy, despite several bills proposed in Parliament. In other countries of the world, homeopathy is recognized as a medical system or medical specialty, often integrated into the national health system. In the field of nosodotherapy, the production of nosodes must be carried out in pharmaceutical workshops that make use of adequate validated operating procedures and biological raw materials, as well as premises and equipment authorized and controlled by the health authorities. Only in this way can the homeopathic dilution of a nosode be considered truly risk-free for patients and homeopathic medicines to meet quality, safety and efficacy requirements.
Associations and reference bodies
Nosodotherapy is considered together with homeopathic practices, so it usually refers to organs and associations that deal with homeopathy. However, the most specific association exists AMIDEAV, Italian Medical Association of Electroacupuncture according to Voll. The various assemblies include Siomi, Italian Society of Homeopathy and Integrated Medicine and Homeopathy Italy.
