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.

The Holidays are a time for celebrating with friends, colleagues and family and may include indulging in lavish dinners. When we eat and drink beyond our limits, however, all the holiday cheer may take a toll on our bodies. Fortunately, homeopathy can be of assistance in "curing" the ills that come with too much socializing...

 

Editor's Note: As the holiday season approaches, we can be prepared for the inevitable overindulgence that most of us will experience. Barbara offers a handful of homeopathic remedies that can turn misery into comfort without being suppressive or causing harmful side effects!

 

Homeopathy


by Prof. George Vithoulkas

I do believe that you all agree that research in Homeopathy is not only necessary but also very urgent.

It is a fact that several good research papers have been published so far but still there is a cry for more and more papers...

 

Editor´s Note from Bharti Nathani: Lots of researches were done by founder of Homeopathy Samuel Hahnemann before introducing Homeopathy to the world And Even Now Lots of researches are going on for the existence of Homeopathy. Here is the Article on Guidelines Concerning Research in Homeopathy by Prof. George Vitholkas. So go ahead and read it.

 

Homeopathy


by Amy Lansky, PhD

With Valentine's Day coming up, it's sometimes good to remember a remedy that can help when love doesn't go our way—Ignatia Amara...

 

Editor´s Note: In this short article, Amy presents the key indications for the homeopathic remedy Ignatia in situations of acute grief involving loss of a loved one for whatever reason. While Ignatia is one of the main remedies to consider for grief, there are several other important ones, the choice being determined by the totality of symptoms. If grief is ongoing, treatment with the person's constitutional remedy is highly advisable.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: Homeopathy is often confused with Naturopathy. In actuality, they are completely different disciplines. The confusion may come from the fact that some naturopaths incorporate Homeopathy into their practices either in part or totally. As Todd says, Homeopathy is a "distinct system of medicine": it has its own principles and mechanisms of healing that sets it apart from other healing modalities.

 

Homeopathy


by Patricia Hatherly

Humans are the only species who drink the milk of another in order to survive. In making that choice we swap mortality for morbidity and the psychological and physical sequelae are well documented. The reasons why we do this are complex and it's a constant struggle for the modern woman to achieve a balance between what she gives to herself and what she gives to her infant...

 

Editor's Note: Patricia Hatherly is a trained homeopath and educator, well known around the world for her work in the 'milk' remedies in homeopathic medicine. Here she gives a 'homeopathic recipe' to enable mothers to continue giving mother's milk after weaning.

by Joette Calabrese HMC, CCH, RSHom(NA)

As we near Thanksgiving, the joys of the holiday season start to warm us. If your family is anything like mine, there is always more for your eyes to feast on then what fits in your belly! Don't fret, have a few remedies on hand & the joyous celebrations won't even skip a beat...

 

Editor's Note: Joette is a regular contributor to many radio talk shows as well as a contributor to homeopathy journals and health magazines. Her newsletter and website, homeopathyworks.net is chock full of wonderful information about the healing power of homeopathy in everyday life.

 

Homeopathy


by Miranda Castro FSHom, RSHom (NA), CCH

I recently met a woman at a dinner party whose eyes grew large when she heard I was a homeopath. "I just had my first consultation with a homeopath for a terrible sore throat..."

 

Editor´s Note: Finding the one remedy that resonates with a person's individuality--that is homeopathic to the case--is the mission of every homeopath. Here, we are able to get under the thinking cap of a highly experienced homeopath like Miranda, to see how she operates as a 'medical detective', as she puts it. Fascinating!

 

Homeopathy


 

by Susan Drury RSHom (NA), CCH

I was 31, married, mother to a young child.  Recently moved from New York City to my husband’s hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, suddenly I began to experience excruciating, burning pain stabbing from my right jaw across the cheek to my nose...

 

Editor's Note: Novice homeopaths often gravitate to remedies like Sulphur, Graphites and Arsenicum Album when treating cases of eczema or impetigo. Susan Drury's case is a wonderful example of how an often overlooked remedy, Daphne Mezereum, although best known for skin conditions, also is an excellent remedy for neuralgia. In this case, Mezereum, successfully treated a case of trigeminal neuralgia and improved the mental and emotional state of the patient.

Homeopathy


by Tina Williams-Wolf, IBCLC, HMA

Homeopathy can be subtle and gradual in its curative action. However, there are combinations of certain general responses that indicate a movement toward healing...



Editor's Note: Tina explains the various combinations which indicate a curative response to a remedy and how a temporary worsening of symptoms, called a 'homeopathic aggravation', is often a sign of the body working to heal itself.

 

Homeopathy


"Improvement and cure come from within outward. Just as no growth and development can take place from outside inward, so no hope of cure can be held that moves in a contrary direction. Growth and development and cure are centrifugal and never centripetal."

~Herbert A. Roberts

 

 

Homeopathy


by Robert Field, RSHom (N.A.), CTHom

We hear so much about alternative medicine today, in the news, through friends, in health magazines and recently in the press.  There are many misconceptions about homeopathy. The most common being that homeopathy is an herb or something like a vaccination, but in fact, it is an energy medicine and works along the lines of resonance...

 

 

 

Homeopathy


Robert Medhurst BNat DHom DBM DRM DNutr

It’s great to live in an environment where the temperature variations are not particularly extreme. For most people, though, the colder temperatures and weather patterns that occur during winter are associated with a constellation of health problems that can be debilitating, if not deadly...

 

Editor´s Note: Robert's article touches on just some of the ailments that can get aggravated during the cold, winter months. He suggests a number of homeopathic remedies for each ailment, with their keynote symptoms. Some of these ills--like arthritis and depression--are really chronic conditions that may flare up during the winter (or at other times, for that matter) and should really be treated constitutionally by a professional homeopath.
