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.

Do you ever go to a single appointment for a health issue with your doctor and then not go back to find out his/her opinion?  Do you consider that you know better how your treatment might be progressing than the specialist you have just paid to see? It seems with Homeopathy this can happen and it is easy to understand why. I want to share a patient story from my clinic last week and explain why this happens, so you do not make the same mistake...

Over the years I have been trying to introduce as many homeopathic plants into my garden as possible. Homeopathic remedies are made from a wide variety of natural materials – plants being among the oldest and most well known source of remedies.

Homeopathy has a history of success in treating epidemics. Cholera, scarlet fever and influenza are among the illnesses that have been either prevented or cured with homeopathic remedies. Currently, there is no conventional vaccine available for the particular strain of Influenza A known as H1N1 (or swine) flu. Homeopathic remedies do exist, however, which can be even more effective and without the potential side-effects of allopathic vaccinations...

Classical homeopathic medicine (CHM) can be extremely helpful in permanently resolving insomnia. Since CHM does not directly involve the use of drugs, chemicals or herbs, it usually doesn't interfere with or worsen sleep disturbances or lead to rebound or withdrawal symptoms when it is stopped.   CHM does not cause physical dependence or addiction, nor does it cause side effects as long as classical methods of prescription are adhered to...

You've gone to your homeopath, who has listened to your description of what's the matter and asked you questions and maybe even more questions--which you've answered the best you could--and now you have taken the remedy that was prescribed for you. What next?...

Homeopathy attracts people from a wide range of clinical disciplines. Doctors, nurses, vets, podiatrists and dentists have all found that homeopathy can enhance their healing skills and bring relief to suffering where conventional medicine has been unsuccessful. But the reasons why people decide to train in homeopathy can be as different as the people themselves...

Whooping cough (Pertussis) tends to be endemic (always existing at a low level) in the Greater Sacramento region. I first got whooping cough when I moved to this area in the late 1980’s. I have had whooping cough 3 times and it seems that the bacteria mutates enough that immunity is not established for life. So you can get the infection again if you have been infected with whooping cough, and you can get the infection if your immunizations are old because they do not provide life long protection...

Of all homeopathic products on the market, combination remedies  are arguably the most popular. Bestsellers, they exist right on the border between allopathic (conventional) and homeopathic medicine. On one hand, these preparations are prescribed for a particular ailment in the same way as conventional drugs. On the other hand, the components of combination remedies are homeopathically prepared substances. Are they effective and safe? This article answers these questions...
