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 Robert Field RSHom (NA), CTHom, APH (Nevada)

Inspire Your Body to Heal with its Own Innate WISDOM

We hear so much about alternative medicine today, in the news, through friends, and in health magazines like this. But as a Classical Homeopath, I find there are many misconceptions about Homeopathy...

 

Editor's Note: In parts of the world where it is not widely used--like North America--Homeopathy is unknown or misunderstood. People often confuse it with herbal medicine or home remedies in general. In his concise article, Robert provides a clear explanation of what it is that Homeopathy treats--the deepest (or highest, in his words) aspect of our being that is our Vital Force--and how homeopathic remedies work through resonance.

 

Homeopathy


by Claudia De Rosa

The Director of Irish office of The British Institute of Homeopathy gives a thorough and insightful portrayal of Lac Caninum, a valuable homeopathic remedy made from dog's milk – one of oldest remedies in the homeopathic materia medica. She writes, "It is difficult to believe that a Dog’s milk can be a remedy. But once you have tried with good results, you wont’ be able to forget it: it will stick to your memory, it will get bound to your heart with bands of steel and you will realize how safe you will feel in its company."

 

Editor's Note: Also read ATH's Mammalian Remedies for further understanding of homeopathic remedies made from the milk of animals.

 

Homeopathy


by Judith Hanna Doshi MA, CCH (Cand)

Homeopathy is an amazingly versatile system of medicine. It has so many varied applications—from the most minor first aid situation to deep seated chronic issues on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, and everything in between. In each and every case Homeopathy, if applied correctly, is guaranteed to be a gently acting form of treatment without harmful side effects...

 

Editor's Note: Although acute prescribing is a great way to become acquainted with the tremendous healing power of Homeopathy, it has its limitations. Consulting a professional homeopath for whole person healing is the way to go for lasting health improvement and prevention. See my article HERE for more on healing the inner state.

 

Homeopathy


by Fredericka Gladwin, MD

February 17, 1910, Mr. W. brought his son to my office. In the 11 preceding years he had taken his from one specialist to another and discouraged, had given up trying to have the boy cured; but some kind heart, in pity for the boy, had persuaded him to try once more...

 

Editor's Note: This 1912 paper by Fredericka Gladwin, MD demonstrates the wonderful healing properties of stramonium, a homeopathic remedy used after severe shocks to the nervous system. The young man in this paper was severely frightened and developed problems with stammering and anxiety. After eleven years of searching, these issues were finally resolved with homeopathic stramonium. The indications for stramonium in this 100 year old case are the same as those used in the present time.

Editor's Note: This short testimonial by veterinary homeopath Geoff Johnson shows us how treatment of his own hayfever by a homeopath (his remedy based on his unique characteristics) led him to adopt a homeopathic approach exclusively with his animal patients. Geoff has a profound appreciation of the power of homeopathic remedies and their connection with the natural world. We are all connected to Nature through the homeopathic remedy that can heal us.

 

Homeopathy


by David Johnson, CCH, RSHom(NA)


For most acute injuries and illnesses, homeopathy is an excellent alternative to conventional over-the-counter or prescription medications. Although it’s nearly impossible to self-prescribe for longer-term, chronic problems, the use of remedies for injuries and short-term illness is much easier, and with the help of a few good household prescribing books, one can quickly dive into the world of homeopathy...

 

Editor's Note from David Johnson: This past weekend I sprained my ankle very badly, and being unable to bear any weight on that side, I needed to use crutches the next day. I was also unable to move my foot without pain, but if I kept it completely still, I experienced no pain at all. The remedy I used to walk one day later is listed in the following group of injury remedies–if you read through this article, you'll find out, and be better prepared if someone close to you experiences a ligament injury of their own!

Editor's Note from David Johnson: This NBC Healthwatch interview with Scott Greenberg, MD, discusses the healing properties of the homeopathic remedy arnica. Arnica is the most common and easiest to use remedy for bruising injuries.

 

Homeopathy


by Hung-Yeh Peisinger

There is a growing number of concerned parents who do not want to medicate their children who are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD) and are looking for alternative treatments. This article is a short introduction to homeopathy as an alternative...

 

Editor's Note: Hung-Yeh is correct in asserting that ADHD is being diagnosed in epidemic proportions (see the accompanying diagram: ADHD diagnosis in US, 2007). Currently, one in every four children is on one prescription drug for a chronic illness, that means long term usage! Thank you, Hung-Yeh, for showing us how whole person homeopathic treatment is a much more sensible and safer approach to this exploding diagnosis.

Homeopathy


by Todd Rowe, MD, MD(H), CCH, DHt

I celebrate every day that I am a homeopath. It is a labor of love, filled with much joy. As a psychiatrist I enjoyed my work, but as a homeopath I have found my calling. My personal journey into homeopathy began in my last year of medical school. I was interested in learning more about alternative medicine and spent one month studying with a homeopathic physician in Chicago...
