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 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 Sophia Cyrus, HMA

Ligaments are strong, flexible fibers that hold bone together. A sprain is an injury to the ligaments around a joint. It happens when a ligament is stretched too far or tears. The affected area could be very painful and swollen. While a severe sprain is extremely painful and needs immediate medical attention, moderate and minor sprains can be treated at home with natural remedies...

 

Editor´s Note: A sprain is a tear in a ligament. Sophia presents four homeopathic remedies that are commonly used in acute sprains with their indications.

Homeopathy


by Prof. George Vithoulkas

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


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...

"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.”

~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.


Homeopathy


by Dr. Sonal Hattangdi-Haridas BHMS (Mum), HMD (Lon)

Homeopathy can be taken as an alternative to conventional painkillers in most situations. It is safe for children, in pregnancy, breast feeding mothers, old age and terminal illness. Homeopathic medication can be given along with pain-killers in conditions where analgesics cannot be stopped...

 

Editor's Note: Homeopathic treatment is tremendously effective in both acute and chronic pain situations. In this concise overview, Sonal presents some of the more common types of pain that homeopaths see. She gives some examples of remedies that can be used in acute pain situations but stresses the need for whole person homeopathic treatment where there is ongoing, chronic pain.

Editor's Note: Misha Norland, founder of The School of Homeopathy--the oldest homeopathy school in the UK--discusses the Vital Force--arguably the most fundamental concept in Homeopathy--and shares his views on how illness arises vis a vis the Vital Force.

 

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 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!

by Konstantinos Pisios MD

Depression is a chronic illness that affects more than 21 million American adults and children annually and is the leading cause of disability for individuals, ages 15 to 44...

 

Editor´s Note: It is becoming more and more widely recognized that Homeopathy excels at treating mental and emotional disorders without the adverse effects of conventional approaches. Here, Konstantinos gives us an overview of a problem affecting massive amounts of people: depression. With a case illustration from his own clinic, he demonstrates why Homeopathy is the sensible treatment choice for a whole person approach to depression.

 

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.
