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: 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.

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


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 David Johnson, CCH

This client was a 46-year-old female when she was first seen February 1, 2005. Her dear friend and companion had recently died, and her affect was very sad and flat. Medications included Trazodone, Clarazapate, Toprol, Azmacort and Serevent...

 

Editor's Note: Although it would seem self-evident, this history is another example of how the client is the very best source for understanding the problem they're experiencing. In this example of "sensation case-taking", the person is so attuned to the state of her "dis-ease" that she describes and leads the homeopath to the source of her remedy in nature.

Because an overgrowth of Candida can lead to such a diverse group of chronic symptoms, it is very difficult to diagnose. Many conventional medical doctors may treat symptoms, such as yeast infections or thrush, but will not tend to view the connection between Candida and these symptoms...

 
Editor's Note: As with all diseases, homeopathy treats the person with the disease. For the best homeopathic treatment for this challenging complaint, seek the consultation of an experienced homeopath.

Allergies are an immune system response to substances (allergens)—pollen, dust, or mold—that the body deems as foreign and potentially harmful. This hypersensitivity triggers a chain reaction of symptoms which include runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, and more...

 

 

Homeopathy


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.
