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.

Robert Medhurst BNat DHom DBM DRM DNutr

It’s great to live in an environment where the temperature variations are not particularly extreme. For most people, though, the colder temperatures and weather patterns that occur during winter are associated with a constellation of health problems that can be debilitating, if not deadly...

 

Editor´s Note: Robert's article touches on just some of the ailments that can get aggravated during the cold, winter months. He suggests a number of homeopathic remedies for each ailment, with their keynote symptoms. Some of these ills--like arthritis and depression--are really chronic conditions that may flare up during the winter (or at other times, for that matter) and should really be treated constitutionally by a professional homeopath.

Editor's Note: Mani Norland is the Principal of The School of Homeopathy, the longest running Homeopathy school in the UK. He is a passionate advocate for Homeopathy as a powerful system of medicine used by millions around the world. I especially like his "integrated medical vision" that gives people choice in their health care.

 

Homeopathy


by Dr. E. Petrie Hoyle

Calendula has been known for hundreds of years to those working in medicine, and the marvelous simplicity and certainty of Calendula wet dressings is worthy of our consideration. I have had over fifty years' experience with Calendula, sometimes under the roughest conditions of backwoods service, yet I have never seen it fail...

 

Editor's Note: In this article from the annals of homeopathic history, E. Petrie Hoyle describes his hospital experience during World War I, when he used the flower calendula officinalis for treating war wounds. He remarks how the improved healing from very dilute calendula tincture improved healing and drew the notice of both soldiers and their general!

 

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.

"A profane man can have no more idea of the sentiments of a gentle, highly religious woman, than can a lobster."

~James Tyler Kent, 1849-1916
(American homeopath and physician and one of the forerunners of American homeopathy.)

 

 

Homeopathy


by Francis Treuherz MA, RSHom, FSHom

One summer Sunday I received a phone call from a friend of a friend of a friend. I was their last resort. Who could they find who might be free on a Sunday to visit an alternative boys’ residential school in the country just outside London?...

 

Editor's Note: Here, Francis demonstrates the amazing efficacy of Homeopathy in an acute situation that affects a number of people from the same cause. Even though all the students suffered from the same food poisoning, more than one remedy was administered based on the different characteristic ways the condition presented in the boys.

 

Homeopathy


by Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom

No two people are the same, and not every cold is the same either! Some come on suddenly while others take a few days to really hit us. Homeopathy is the medicine that addresses the illnesses based on the symptoms that present. It could be the “cold” or “flu”, but there isn’t one remedy per illness...

 

Editor's Note from Christine Breen: This is an excerpt from Joette’s latest book, “How to Raise a Drug Free Family”, which she’ll be using to teach her first webinar course for mothers. Read another of Joette's articles on ATH here.

 

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.

 

Homeopathy


by Dana Ullman MPH

In 1900 President William McKinley dedicated a monument to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathic medicine. This monument is situated at Scott Circle...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Dana gives us an intriguing glimpse into homeopathic history: leading politicians of the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries continued to favor Homeopathy as their treatment of choice despite vicious antagonism from conventional medical circles.

Homeopathy


by Oonagh Taeger, DHom (UK), PCH

Hahnemann's dedication to the ideal of healing with the smallest dose of medicine needed for cure led him to develop the use of potentized remedies, sequentially succussed ultradilutions. But the use of ultradilutions has caused scientific controversy and even ridicule, from his own day to the present. This article takes a look at how Hahnemann came to his discovery of “potentized” remedies, and considers ultradilutions in the light of recent discoveries in physics and materials science...

Understanding Health and Dis-ease

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?
