Homework Assignment for Week 2

Intro. to Homeopathy

Please classify the following scenarios as chronic, acute, or first aid and offer a brief rationale for your answer. Acute prescribing is appropriate for short-term, self-limiting illnesses. The classic acute illnesses are contagious ones such as childhood diseases, colds, and flu in addition to injuries/trauma. In deciding to treat acutely, it is important to distinguish between acute and chronic: if an “acute” is recurrent (such as ear infections, migraines, nosebleeds, etc.), it is actually a chronic ailment and needs to be treated professionally. First Aid is necessary in the case of a trauma or medical emergency. Conventional medicine excels in the administration of life-saving medical interventions. However, homeopathy may be beneficial for first aid situations (while you are waiting for the ambulance to arrive or on your way to the E.R.)


Some of the cases below could have two different answers, so BRIEFLY justify your answers to get full credit.
