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.

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.




Editor's Note: From Within, Without is a labor of love and dedication by Laurel Chiten and her Blind Dog Films. This first trailer focuses on the Korn family and their struggle to find answers to deal with their son's autism which they believe developed after the administration of multiple vaccines on the same day when he was 10 months old. The Korns found Homeopathy and Dr. Luc De Schepper, a world renowned homeopath with extensive experience treating Autism Spectrum Disorder. The video chronicles Lucas' gradual turnaround--"not yet cured"--after homeopathic treatment.

Inspiring is perhaps the best way to describe the annual conference that includes coordination of the national homeopathic associations, pharmacies, and schools to share the most current information with the goal of advancing the practice of homeopathy...


Editor's Note: The Joint American Homeopathic Conference, held annually, is, to quote The National Center for Homeopathy, "The Conference of a Lifetime!" It is a rare opportunity for homeopaths to see internationally renowned leaders of homeopathic thought come together to share their latest insights into our great art and science.

In 2009, a group of homeopaths were inspired to help people struggling with substance and alcohol abuse in the Down Town East Side (DTES) of Vancouver. This area has a complex history of social and economic issues, often deeply rooted in multiple generations of abuse, violence, neglect and poverty...


Editor's Note: Here's another great example of the homeopathic community reaching out to people with special needs in our communities at large (see also the recent article by Renita Herrmann). Lucy and her team are getting great results in Vancouver with individualized homeopathic prescribing. Congratulations!

When my boys were little, early spring was ushered in with an all out watch for chicken pox. I wanted certainty that my little ones were fully exposed because natural immunity is an important aspect of robust health...

Advocates of homeopathy can celebrate the evolution of a new organization set to dynamically expand the general understanding and use of homeopathy through the creation of public outreach clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area...


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: Here's a good news media story about a group of homeopaths working in the community in the area of public health.




Editor's Note from Christine Breen: John Benneth PG Hom's video challenges viewers in his customary tongue-in-cheek delivery to type in 'homeopathy' in Google to demonstrate that Wikipedia's description of homeopathy which pops up first is highly inaccurate. It misleads millions of searchers who only read Wikipedia for their information about homeopathy.




Editor’s Note from Michelle Gregg: In anticipation of our upcoming “A Conversation With... Dr. Todd Rowe” we’re presenting this wonderful video introducing both he and the American Medical College of Homeopathy. Be sure to tune in for the Todd Rowe ACW coming to this page next week – the information shared is critical for anyone interested in homeopathy, the direction homeopathy is taking (you’ll be surprised!) and holistic health in general. It’s a particularly great conversation for those of you considering homeopathy as a career path.



from NCH

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…


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: The NCH is the organizing body for homeopathic medicine in the United States. They are very passionate about homeopathy and the role it plays as one of the best systems of health and wellness available to us today. Read an interview with NCH's Communications Director, Peter Gold, here.

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.
