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.

Homeopathy


by Tina Williams-Wolf, IBCLC, HMA

Homeopathy can be subtle and gradual in its curative action. However, there are combinations of certain general responses that indicate a movement toward healing...



Editor's Note: Tina explains the various combinations which indicate a curative response to a remedy and how a temporary worsening of symptoms, called a 'homeopathic aggravation', is often a sign of the body working to heal itself.

Anxiety, which seems to be increasingly prevalent, affects approximately 40 million Americans. Of these, 6 million have been diagnosed with panic disorder, anxiety that is more severe, frequent and difficult to control. The more common symptoms of palpitations, light-headedness or dizziness, nausea and a feeling of impending doom, are common and may not help with the selection of a specific homeopathic treatment...

 

Editor's Note: Mary Ellen presents the distinguishing features of 9 homeopathic remedies for acute episodes of anxiety or panic attacks. As always, if these symptoms recur and are hindering a person's wellbeing, he or she needs to consult a professional homeopath for constitutional treatment which can be highly effective.

Giving birth, at its best, is a completely natural human process that requires little or no assistance. Rarely, though, do we see examples of this in our culture today. We have lost touch with the normalcy of birth...

 

Editor's Note: In this helpful article for moms-to-be, Pat describes the various complications that could occur during the birthing process and the corresponding homeopathic remedies that can smooth out the process and avoid more invasive procedures. Homeopathy is a great ally in the birthing room!

Insomnia, when chronic, is often a complex problem with many underlying factors. More often than not anxiety plays a major part. Even if anxiety was not the original trigger, the sense of anxiety that arises around not being able to sleep means that it can become a significant and understandable factor in insomnia. Homeopathy has a solution...

 

 

Homeopathy


by Oonagh Taeger DHom (UK), PCH

When Hahnemann experimentally dosed himself with China in 1790, he conducted the first homeopathic proving, if an informal one. A proving is a controlled experiment in which the effects of a medicine are tested. (Homeopathic medicines are known as remedies.)...

 

Editor´s Note: We often hear of the vast amount of remedies in the homeopathic materia medica--numbering in the thousands--but how these remedies come into clinical usefulness remains a mystery to most of us. Here, Oonagh explains the fascinating process of a homeopathic proving. Hats off to all the homeopaths whose hard work and dedication to expanding and refining our materia medica through provings enhances the healing potential of Homeopathy!

 

Homeopathy


by Pamela A. Pappas MD, MD(H)

Skin is amazing. It’s flaunted, ogled, and tanned within an inch of its life. It’s our body’s largest (and heaviest!) organ, but gets taken for granted until something goes wrong. Still, it releases toxins, keeps our innards warm, juicy and safe, and continuously renews itself. It even finds time to make Vitamin D!...

 

Editor´s Note: In our fast paced, stress filled culture, skin ailments like acne and eczema--just to name two--are very common among susceptible people, even adults. In her superb article, Pamela explains the homeopathic interpretation of chronic skin ailments as a reflection of a deeper, systemic imbalance  that needs to be treated wholistically. Of particular note is Pamela's discussion of the process of healing as it pertains to skin issues--slow but sure!

by Amy Lansky, PhD

Is it an accident that the word “patient” has two meanings? Of course not. As a patient (noun) we must be patient (adjective). This is especially true when you are the parent of an autistic child...


Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: How do parents of autistic children determine which alternative therapies are most effective? Usually by trial and practice. Amy Lansky chose homeopathy for her son, a process chronicled in her book "Impossible Cure." In this article she provides a supportive, realistic guide for helping parents manage long term therapies for autism and other chronic conditions. It encourages patience and meeting children where they are. It recommends celebrating every improvement and recognizes the importance of allowing the process to unfold organically, wise guidance that could be applied to parenting in general.

"The essence of a human being is our individuality, from our fingerprint, to our DNA, to our face, to our thoughts, to our symbols, to the source we are expressing. The essence of homeopathy is the respect, actually the glorification, of that individuality."

~Linda Johnston MD in The Child's World

Editor's Note: Bhawisha explains how Homeopathy is truly customized medicine in that it targets the unique physical and emotional patterns of the individual. I would add that the mental and spiritual uniqueness are also addressed by the well chosen homeopathic remedy!

 

Homeopathy


by Mary Aspinwall IS Hom, PCH

From an early age I had extremely poor health. By the time I was 19 years old I was very, very ill and despite lots of conventional treatment and invasive testing, I was just becoming weaker and weaker, sicker and sicker. At the time I was living in London and a dear friend of mine called Fred said: “You’ve got to go and see Dr. Dave...”


Editor's Note: Mary gives us a heartfelt testimonial to how Homeopathy helped her with her own health crises. She makes two points that are absolute gems: One, that if you've had success with Homeopathy, please pay it forward by sharing your experience with someone who could benefit. Two, don't wait until your health begins to deteriorate to be treated homeopathically. Do it now for a healthy future!
