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.

Like many homeopaths, I was introduced to homeopathy for personal reasons. Having been diagnosed with breast cancer at a fairly young age, and undergoing surgery and subsequent radiation treatment, my immune system was greatly damaged. The cancer was discovered on a base-line mammogram, thanks to a doctor who believed that a mammogram should be taken at age 35. This probably saved my life...

Allergies are becoming more common. They are autoimmune diseases – a term which is applied to a whole range of diseases where the immune system breaks down and anti-bodies begin to attack the body’s own tissues. (The proper functioning of the immune system is seen as being dependent on a healthy spleen and damage to this  can create long term problems)...

The words colicky baby still bring back shivers down my spine of those horrid times when babies are in such a pain that they just shriek for hours. It was so stressful for everybody, a real daytime nightmare...

 

Editor´s Note: Treating your colicky baby with a well chosen individualized homeopathic remedy not only offers you peace of mind but also ensures a healthier future for your child!

 

Homeopathy


 

"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 Susan Drury

Recently the Canadian broadcasting company’s Marketplace TV program aired an hour-long “investigation” entitled “Homeopathy – Cure or Con?” At the same time, the homeopathic community is being warned that internationally, various anti-homeopathy groups are mobilizing organized events and media propaganda with the goal of discrediting homeopathy and ultimately making remedies unavailable to the public...

Editor´s Note: Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Robert Ullman have a vast amount of experience successfully treating children with Attention Deficit and Autism Spectrum disorders using individualized homeopathic remedies. As they mention in the video, their treatment expectations are high and they get impressive results with well chosen remedies and, presumably, diligent case management. In this video Judyth and Robert describe some of the positive changes that can be expected with these children.

 

Homeopathy


by Krista Heron, ND, DHANP

Patients often say how much the homeopathic consultation, or first constitutional interview, is like therapy. I believe what they mean is that they did not expect to reveal, nor had they ever done so in a doctor’s office before, parts of themselves or their life story so completely. That their telling was more similar to what they share with their therapist or counselor then a physician...

Homeopathy can be taken as an alternative to conventional painkillers in most situations. It is safe for children, in pregnancy, breast feeding mothers, old age and terminal illness. Homeopathic medication can be given along with pain-killers in conditions where analgesics cannot be stopped...

 

Editor's Note: Homeopathic treatment is tremendously effective in both acute and chronic pain situations. In this concise overview, Sonal presents some of the more common types of pain that homeopaths see. She gives some examples of remedies that can be used in acute pain situations but stresses the need for whole person homeopathic treatment where there is ongoing, chronic pain.

 

Homeopathy


 

by Madeleine Innocent

Home prescribing is, naturally, limited to the less complicated ailments. But there’s a tremendous amount you can do at home.


Editor's note:  Although the author states that if you take the wrong remedy nothing happens it is recommended that you seek advise from a professional homeopath if symptoms seem to worsen.


by Mary Aspinwall IS Hom, PCH

From an early age I had extremely poor health. By the time I was 19 years old I was very, very ill and despite lots of conventional treatment and invasive testing, I was just becoming weaker and weaker, sicker and sicker. At the time I was living in London and a dear friend of mine called Fred said: “You’ve got to go and see Dr. Dave...”


Editor's Note: Mary gives us a heartfelt testimonial to how Homeopathy helped her with her own health crises. She makes two points that are absolute gems: One, that if you've had success with Homeopathy, please pay it forward by sharing your experience with someone who could benefit. Two, don't wait until your health begins to deteriorate to be treated homeopathically. Do it now for a healthy future!
