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.

Homeopathy


by Judith Hanna Doshi MA, CCH (Cand)

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how healthy you really are? How often do you find yourself reaching for anything that will give you fast relief for your symptoms? Do you wonder whether managing your symptoms in this way qualifies as being in good health, as conventional medical thought would have us believe? What in fact does being truly healthy look like?...

 

Editor´s Note:  It is not an overstatement to say that we take our health for granted and that what we regard as health is really just the suppression of symptoms. In this article I turn conventional ideas of health and disease on their head and present a new definition based on classical principles of Homeopathy dating back to Hahnemann.

 

Homeopathy


by Konstantinos Pisios, MD

Homeopathy is a good alternative solution for someone with a thyroid problem who is reluctant to use conventional medicine or surgery because of the risks, side effects and the need to use medication for the rest of their life...

 

Editor's Note: Dr. Pisios spells out the benefits of homeopathic treatment for people with thyroid conditions. He shows how treating a single symptom or condition in isolation--as conventional medicine does--cannot be curative hence the need for the whole person approach that Homeopathy provides. It is important to note that Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medication.

Homeopathy


by Dr. Shreya Deshpande, Online Homeopathic Consultant

Hair fall is one of the commonest symptoms with which patients present to us. Sometimes it is an associated symptom of some other major disease symptom or it is the disease per say. I have not observed any age limit for this problem. Rather, the age limit is decreasing sadly day by day for hair problems...

 

Editor´s Note from Bharti Nathani: In this article, Dr. Deshpande has discussed one of the most common problems, "Hair fall", or the lose of hair.  Everyone of today's generation wants good, shiny and thick hair!  This article shares how Homeopathy can help.

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 and Chinese medicine are two examples of possible alternative approaches to disease that do not treat the illness as an enemy and therefore do not create new diseases.”

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


by Renita Herrmann CCH, RSHom (NA), MS

It’s about time I address the issue of menopause. Many women call or come in to my office with problems associated with the end of menses. Menses in homeopathy is very close to the vital force; although we can live without reproducing (as in the decision or event we do not have children, or the loss of female reproductive organs through hysterectomy), it is part and parcel of who we are...

 

Editor´s Note: Individualized homeopathic treatment should be a first line of defense for a woman experiencing menopausal symptoms. Renita explains some of the physiological processes that occur during menopause but, like she says, every woman experiences the transition in a unique way and should be treated as a unique person.

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.
