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: In Part 3 of her conversation with Mattie Klare, Deborah explores the scope of homeopathic case taking. The reader gets an idea of what to expect in the homeopathic interview from a client's perspective. At the same time, we see how complex an endeavor homeopathic case taking really is. See Part 1 and Part 2.

Editor's Note: I really appreciate Deborah's perspective on health and Homeopathy. In particular, the idea that as a practitioner learning Homeopathy is a lifelong process. Also, that there is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to real healing. Problems that have developed over a lifetime require time and patience to resolve; in the process of healing, old problems may resurface on the road to wellness. Deborah does a great job explaining the fundamental law of homeopathic healing, Like cures Like.

 

Homeopathy


by Sinead Fine MAHA

The sun rose higher in the sky and by 1pm we felt the essence was ready. The water was colored slightly yellow and the flowers were faded. We gently picked them out with the same twigs and put them back at the base of the tree. Then we emptied half the bottle of brandy into our Mother Tincture bottle and poured it to full with the Hawthorn-infused water.  We discarded the rest of the water at the base of the tree, giving thanks. We now had our Mother Tincture...

 

 

Homeopathy

Flu has strong seasonal and epidemic nature. Especially at the change of seasons running like wildfire through communities and even continents.They are generally self limiting diseases which resolve on their own after a few days, but symptoms can be eased and complications avoided by naturopathic/homeopathic treatment...

Throughout all the discussions and media attacks on homeopathy during the last few years, one thing has never been mentioned and that is the extraordinary effectiveness of homeopathic medicines to treat symptoms relating to psychological problems...

 

Editor´s Note: Dont take anti-depressants and tranquillisers. Homeopathy is genuinely there for people who want to avoid anti-depressants

“Those who merely study and treat the effects of disease are like those who imagine that they can drive away the winter by brushing the snow from the door. It is not the snow that causes winter, but the winter that causes the snow.”

~Paracelsus (Philipus Aurelius Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim) 1493-1541

 

 

Homeopathy


by Judith Hanna Doshi MA, CCH (Cand)

To illustrate suppression at work, take the hypothetical example of eczema suppressed with cortisone cream, a common practice in modern medicine. When these topical applications continue over time, the eczema can disappear, only to be replaced by asthma, a more serious condition because it involves the lungs and the respiratory function (versus the more external skin)...

 

Editor's Note: In Part 1 of my article on Suppression, I showed how prevalent suppression is in our 'fast relief' culture. I introduced you to the concept of Vital Force, its relationship to symptoms and the risk involved in suppressing them. In Part 2 I give everyday examples of suppression, focussing on the harmful effects of prescription drugs. In my Blueprint for Better Health I suggest ways to reduce or eliminate suppression from our lives in order to achieve a genuine improvement in health.

In my Homeopathy practice, one of the first things I make a mental note of when I see a new client is the number and type of suppressive influences the client has experienced over the course of his or her lifetime. This information helps me to select the remedy that most closely mirrors my client’s state of dis-ease and its constellation of unique symptoms....

 

Editor's Note: Suppression is one of the key contributing factors to ill health. Each one of us has a history of suppressive influences and events in our lives, starting from birth or even before. You'd be amazed how extensive the list can be!

 

Homeopathy


by Randall Neustaedter OMD, LAc

Homeopathic treatment for children can be separated into two categories: self-limiting, acute conditions such as colds, sore throats, and stomach flu, or persistent, chronic conditions such as allergies and eczema. Homeopathy is successful in both categories...
