HOMEOPATHY

What is Homeopathy? A medical system that stimulates the body's own healing responses while respecting nature’s laws and the wisdom of the body. The key premise is everyone has vital force energy that if disrupted or out of balance creates health problems.   A key philosophy of homeopathic healing as a natural health therapy falls under the principle of ‘like cures like’, or Law of Similars where the body’s own healing response is activated. Simply stated substances which cause symptoms can be taken in small amounts to treat the very same symptoms.  It has been written that homeopathy is a natural health therapy that works by mimicking specific symptoms, rather than suppressing them as do allopathic medicines.    Another philosophy of homeopathic practitioners is to treat the person, not the disease. Homeopathic practices are used throughout the world and can be coupled safely with conventional medicines with no side effects as homeopathy healing is non-toxic.   The founder of homeopathy is said to be Samuel Hahnemann, a German who established the fundamental principles of both the science and art of homeopathic healing over 200 years ago.  He is also called the ‘father of experimental pharmacology’.  Homeopathy became a popular healing method during the 1800’s with the first schools opening around 1830, followed by dozens of homeopathic institutions throughout Europe and the United States.  By the beginning of the 20th century, there were thought to be over 15,000 homeopathic practitioners in the United States alone.  However, homeopathy healing had many vocal critics throughout the mid 1800’s in both the U.S and Europe.  By 1920, according to Wikipedia, the last homeopathic school in the United States had closed.  Homeopathic practitioner numbers continued to dwindle until the mid 1970’s when homeopathy and homeopathic products experienced resurgence.  Today you can find homeopathic healing products in most large pharmaceutical chains.   According to HomeopathyResource.com, 20% to 40% of physicians throughout Germany, United Kingdom, France and Holland regularly use homeopathy healing with their patients.  Homeopathic services are reimbursable under national health plans in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Austria and India where over 100,000,000 use homeopathy as their only form of medical care.   We hope you have learned more about Homeopathy as a natural health therapy.

Editor's Note: Dr. Jeremy Swayne started out as a conventional general practitioner but was led to Homeopathy because he wanted a much more comprehensive model of health and illness that provides real solutions and not just band-aid treatment. He is absolutely right in saying that Homeopathy is not easy to practice: the homeopath doesn't always get the right remedy on the first or even the second try--as a result clients tend to drop out too soon...

 

Homeopathy


by Robert Field, RSHom

Fever is the body’s natural defense, and  if understood, can be worked with and not suppressed for the best and healthiest response to illness...

 

 

 

 

 

Homeopathy


by Robert Medhurst

The principles that underpin homeopathy were laid down clearly by the founder of the art, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in his Organon of Medicine(1). In a footnote to Aphorism 260 of the sixth edition of this venerable work(2), he outlines the factors that are likely to adversely affect the activity of the Similimum, or remedy whose proving picture best matches the presentation of the patient...

 

Editor´s Note: Robert's article serves as a reminder to both homeopathic practitioners and clients that attention must be paid to factors that can potentially antidote the positive action of a homeopathic simillimum or adversely affect the properties of the remedies themselves. While there remains some debate on these issues, homeopathic remedies appear to be fairly hardy although some degree of caution in the handling of remedies is probably the wise course.

"Homeopathy.... cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical and a most complete medical science."

 ~ Mahatama Gandhi


by Greg Meyer MD, MD(H), MSPH

So I have had my case taken—for the 4th time. I think everyone doing homeopathy should also be a patient. The more whole you are the better you can be objective with your own patients. It is really almost impossible to treat yourself...

 

Editor's Note: Greg's short yet powerful article addresses a crucial aspect of Homeopathy--the need for homeopaths themselves to be as healthy as possible in order for them to be able to facilitate healing in their clients. The homeopath Greg consulted uses the Sensation method of Rajan Sankaran to find the inner state of the person that gives rise to dis-ease. As Greg says, the deepest healing occurs on the energetic level.

Editor´s Note: Mental health is a critical issue in our society. Here, Dr. Mahesh Gandhi does such a beautiful job explaining why serious consideration should be given to Homeopathy as a treatment choice for depression. Please watch the entire video--it is a gem from start to finish!

 

Homeopathy


by Jane Tara Cicchetti RSHom (NA), CCH

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine that uses natural, non-toxic remedies that stimulate the inherent healing capacity within the mind and body...

 

Editor´s Note: Among the many tools used by the modern homeopath to arrive at a remedy that can heal on the deepest level, dreams are one of the most important. Jane explains how, with increasing occurrence of suppression of symptoms, dreams play a crucial role in understanding the complexity of a person in the context of homeopathic treatment of chronic dis-ease.

 

Homeopathy


by Ian R. Luepker, ND, DHANP

As a practitioner working with children who struggle with psychological and behavioral issues, I am very interested in understanding what most helps children survive difficult, even traumatic, childhoods. Beyond surviving, I'm even more interested in what helps children to become confident, autonomous and successful adults...

 


Editor's Note: Dr. Luepker specializes in treatment of children with disorders on the Autistic spectrum. With his extensive experience he gives us a clear case of childhood depression treated with homeopathy.

 

Homeopathy


by Gina Tyler DHom

"My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat..."

 

Editor´s Note: After reading Gina's interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia--both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments--is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!

 

Homeopathy


 

by Miranda Castro

Gelsemium sempervirens, also known as yellow jasmine or wild woodbine, is a beautiful climbing plant found in moist woodlands and along seacoasts in the southern states of the U.S. It climbs high up in trees, forming festoons from tree to tree and perfuming the air in the spring when it flowers...

 

Editor's Note from Mary Ellen: Miranda Castro's description of Gelsemium provides a good example of how understanding the nature of the substance and the toxicity it creates, provides a good idea of the symptoms and conditions that it will treat.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note from Christine Breen: John Benneth PG Hom's video challenges viewers in his customary tongue-in-cheek delivery to type in 'homeopathy' in Google to demonstrate that Wikipedia's description of homeopathy which pops up first is highly inaccurate. It misleads millions of searchers who only read Wikipedia for their information about homeopathy.
