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.

"Be well assured that nothing continues to exist without a cause!"

~Margaret Tyler, MD and one of Britain's most influential homeopaths




by Sam Adkins

Like eczema, asthma is an inflammatory disease. In asthma the airways become constricted by swelling, making it difficult to breathe. In developed countries 1 in 4 children have asthma as opposed to 1 in 18 people 40 years ago. Homeopathic medicines can be a viable alternative to steroid medications. They can be given as an acute treatment in place of puffers but more importantly, professional treatment–working with the whole person–can cure asthma entirely...



"The solution to anything is to slide into a feeling of peace instead of thrashing around to find the answer."

~Erich Schiffmann




by Oonagh Taeger

A lot of attention has been given to the psychosomatic link between emotions and illness. This is an intuitive connection for many people to make because when we feel bad emotionally we also feel bad in our bodies, and in many cases we notice clear physical symptoms from negative emotions. These may be tense muscles, headaches, stomach upsets – but truly, any symptom which your body has become practiced at producing you may notice becoming active when you are in the midst of strong negative emotion...

Delia, age 47, had short red hair and blue eyes and was about 75 pounds overweight. I first saw her on 9/14/93. Her story was as follows: “The reason I came is that I’m having trouble with uterine fibroids (2). My uterus is pressing on my bladder...


Editor´s Note from Bharti Nathani: In this Article author has beautifully described a case of women suffering from uterine fibroid and has narrated the mental and physical state of the patient through expressing her fears, dreams,and her relations which is affecting her life.so this is how mental affects physicals leading to a disease form.




Editor's Note: In Part 2 in his video series on Depression (see part 1), Luc talks about the different kinds of depression and who can be affected by it. He compares the allopathic treatment approach--based on a flawed theory--with the homeopathic one that treats every case as an individual. He talks about the terrain of a person--a really important concept in Homeopathy!




Editor´s Note: Luc De Schepper is a tremendously skilled and prolific homeopath who has influenced a great many practicing homeopaths of today. In the first installment of his series on Depression, Luc presents a superb overview of the discipline of Homeopathy, including its origins in Hahnemann and what differentiates it from western or conventional medicine. His discussion of similar and dissimilar diseases--the backbone of Homeopathy--is particularly good because he makes it so easy to understand! Stay tuned for the next episode!




Editor´s Note from Bharti Nathani: In this video you will see 3 important homeopathy remedies that can be used in Emergency as a Homeopathy kit.
