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.

It is best to allow the remedies a clear field in which to work uninterrupted. It is more important to avoid cancellations with "one dose high" of a remedy. The "lower potency repeated" is less susceptible to cancellations...

 

Editor's Note from Sima Ash: Robin Murphy suggests ways to avoid interfering with the action of homeopathic remedies as well as guidelines on prescribing and taking remedies for acute and chronic complaints...

 

Homeopathy


by Robert Field, RSHom, CTHom

As a homeopath I am often asked to help treat an ailing animal. Prescribing for an animal is not a lot different from prescribing for humans but being able to have a conversation to understand them is different indeed...

 

Editor's Note from Christine Breen: Robert Field is a regular contributor to ATH. In this piece he writes about his experience treating animals with homeopathy. Read one of his other articles here.

 

Homeopathy


by Susan Drury, RSHom(NA) 
For the past few weeks I lived and worked at the Eva de Maya Center in rural Northern Malawi.  The center was founded 10 years ago, and includes homeopathic training for local people as well as a clinic where visiting homeopaths like me get to practice in a very different setting than what we are used to...

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...

 

 

Homeopathy


by Laurie DeFrain Stemm

It was the beginning of a wonderful vacation in southern Brazil. My husband, our two boys, and I were having so much fun swimming on the beach in the crystal blue waves all afternoon. By sunset, we began watching the colors of the day drift into the sea...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great example of the well chosen homeopathic remedy's ability to trigger a speedy healing response in a sudden onset acute illness. Without a hospital nearby (it is always advisable to seek medical care in an unfamiliar situation like this), Laurie relied on good judgment and her knowledge of homeopathic first aid to find a remedy that came closest to matching her son's symptoms.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: In part 2 of her series, Deborah addresses the question of how homeopathic remedies are more powerful the more dilute they are by showing how they are actually made. She also raises an often overlooked point that homeopathic treatment is a process that may take longer for some than others and that people should stick with it for maximum results. See Part 1.

Editor's Note: Lauren Feder, MD and homeopath speaks about keeping healthy during the holidays. She suggests 'Oscillo' by Boiron at the first sign of cold an flu symptoms.

 

Homeopathy


by Christine Breen Williams, ISHom,
Marking their second year in Tanzania, Africa, homeopath Jeremy Sherr and his wife Camila sent out a newsletter to the homeopathic community at large. At the beginning of their mission to help AIDS patients in Africa, they had no idea how long they would stay.  Two years later, they write to say they are still there and still aiming to achieve their goals...

 

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: In Part 5 (See Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4) of his series on depression and Homeopathy, Luc contrasts the testing of homeopathic remedies with the conventional model. In Homeopathy, remedies are tested on healthy people whose stronger, less compromised Vital Force allows them to react more fully to the substance being tested...

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: In the fourth installment of his series on depression (See Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), Dr. Luc explains why conventional psychiatric drugs are detrimental to health, how they suppress symptoms and deaden emotions, as well as cause horrific side effects. He then discusses how homeopathic remedies act according to a quantum physics model postulated by Einstein and others.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note: Here, Luc talks about how pharmaceutical drugs for depression fare so poorly in long term research studies--barely better than placebo--yet receive government approval. Another consideration is their side effects, which he will elaborate on in the next episode. See Part 1 and Part 2.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor´s Note: Vinton Rafe McCabe is a leading authority on the homeopathy scene. His book Homeopathy, Healing and You is an outstanding in-depth introduction to the vast healing potential of Homeopathy. In this video, Vinton describes how Homeopathy returned him to health after conventional medicine failed to help his deteriorating colitis condition. You'll notice that Vinton's full restoration to health took considerable time and several remedies well selected by his homeopath.
