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.

by Dr. Neepa Sevak DHMS, DIHom, DHom, DHM, HMA, CCH, RSHom(NA)

"I can't sleep!" These three words can explain nights of restless anguish for those who suffer from insomnia. An occasional night without much sleep is normal, but when it continues night after night, a vicious cycle can begin that can be exhausting and extremely frustrating...

Homeopathy


 

by Tessa Jordan RSHom

This is the first question many homeopaths ask me when they hear of the flower remedies in my homeopathic practice. As homeopaths, we have a large and increasing materia medica, and using classical prescriptions can be so effective. Why would we want to bring in another modality? Tessa Jordan, a homeopath and Bach flower practitioner explains...

 

Homeopathy


by Sonya McLeod, BA, DCH

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia are diagnoses of exclusion, meaning that a diagnosis is made only after other conditions have been ruled out. There are no specific tests to diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Homeopathy can be especially helpful in reversing these conditions because no pathological changes have yet taken place in the body...

 

 

 

Homeopathy


by Oonagh Taeger, DHom (UK), PCH

Homeopaths sometimes refer to the vital force. By this we mean the life principle which maintains us as living beings, with drives for survival, learning, love and creativity. Our defense mechanism, our immune system, our homeostatic mechanisms, are all agents of this force...


Editor's Note: Oonagh Taeger is a seriously dedicated homeopath and practitioner of the Sensation Method developed by Rajan Sankaran. Her website Turning Leaf Homeopathy has invaluable information about homeopathy. Read Oonagh's other articles on ATH.

 

Homeopathy

Brittany came to me through Head Start, a pre-school program run by the government for children of poverty levels families in March, 2009. Her parents were in their early 30s, immigrants from Mexico; dad works sporadically at farm labor and building green houses...

 

Editor's Note: This article is republished with the permission of NASH and was printed in Volume 16-2010 issue of the AMERICAN HOMEOPATH. The case, Princess Tikatika: A Case of a Four-year-old Girl with Autism, is inspiring, as it demonstrates the healing potential for homeopathy in a condition which can be extremely difficcult to treat. Ambika's website contains a reference to heartofpeaceproject.com, which specializes in this form of therapy.


Homeopathy


"There is a great danger in selecting a remedy on external symptoms alone, i.e., selecting a remedy that corresponds only to the skin and ignoring all the symptoms that the patient may have, ignoring the whole economy and general state of the patient; because it is true that that remedy that is related to the skin alone may drive in that skin disease and cause it to disappear while the patient himself is not cured."

~James Tyler Kent, Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy

Homeopathy


by Joel Kreisberg, DC, CCH

Preventing illness and protecting our environment can and should be mutually inclusive. To that end, Ecologically Sustainable Medicine (ESM) offers a clear agenda by codifying the tools and resources that lead to economically sustainable healthcare and environmental healing...

 

Editor's Note: A fascinating and thought provoking read that highlights an often overlooked but profoundly important aspect of Homeopathy--its position as an eco-friendly and highly sustainable form of medicine. Joel explains how humankind and nature are inextricably connected through the homeopathic healing process.

 

Homeopathy


by Amy Lansky, PhD

One of the most common things that people ask me is: what does this or that reaction to a remedy mean? Confusion about remedy reactions is quite understandable, since they are often quite different than reactions to conventional drugs...

 

Editor´s Note: The topic of Amy's article is crucial information in homeopathic case management. The homeopath must fully understand all the nuances of how the client could potentially respond to the indicated homeopathic remedy. At the same time, the client needs to be observant of his/her reactions and communicate these to the homeopath. As Amy says, it is truly a healing partnership!

 

Homeopathy


by Tina Quirk, MS, PCH
Homeopathy is a "whole medical system" that respects the laws of nature and the wisdom of the body. The underlying premises are that the body and mind are parts of a deep rooted system that regulates and renews health, that the body knows the best way to heal itself and that physical and mental symptoms are the organism's best way to deal with influences that threaten health...

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: In this final installment  (see Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5) of Mattie Klare's interview with homeopath Deborah Vidal, we get an inside peek at how a homeopath thinks when she undertakes the complex process of homeopathic case taking. If you are considering homeopathic treatment for yourself, watching these videos should give you some insight and put you at ease about what to expect!

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor´s Note: In Episode 5 (see Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4), Deborah discusses combining homeopathic treatment with other therapies, noting that she advises her clients not to start another modality at the same time as Homeopathy. I love it that she describes the homeopathic remedy as a support system--a beautiful way to look at it!

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor´s Note: Deborah continues her discussion of the homeopathic healing experience (see Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3). Here, she examines the unexpected ways--in terms of subtle, deeper changes--in which healing can unfold and stresses the value in establishing a long term relationship with your homeopath. Listening to Deborah describe her most memorable case is truly inspiring!
