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.

According to a recent study released by the Chamber of Commerce of India (ASSOCHAM), the world homoeopathy market is a $5.35 billion dollar market and growing at a rapid annual rate. If one multiplies $5.35 billion by just 1.25% annually, without adjustment for inflation, one gets a $1.1 trillion dollar global market by 2035…

All homeopathic practitioners have favorite remedies that they prescribe and remedies that they ignore. When a practitioner has success with a remedy, there is a very human tendency to prescribe that remedy more frequently. Likewise, when a remedy has not produced successful results, to ignore that and tend to use it less often...

We have all witnessed the excitement over the Swine Flu Epidemic.  I want to say a few things about it from the homeopathic perspective...


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: The H5N1 Bird Flu virus was recently (3 January 2012) related to the death of a man in China. It's a rare form of avian flu and Chinese authorities claim Bird Flu is contracted only by in contact with diseased poultry. Deborah's article re-posted here on the Swine Flu scare of a few years ago is relevant today because it explains about pandemics and what to do to boost your immunity when flu symptoms develop and encourages the use of constitutional homeopathy.

In the region where the Maasai live there are very few schools. The teacher asked for each family to pay 100
shillings/month (10 cents), but it was too much for the parents, so the school closed down. The draught has been terrible this year, leaving people here with no food as all crops died. There is no water, so the women are gathering condensation water from trees...
