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.

We all remember the gymnast hopping on one foot, vaulting to the gold in gymnastics, then not being able to compete again.

Homeopathy recognizes that all disease begins at the dynamic or energetic level of the vital self. That which is occurring at the level of our organs or cells is not the cause of disease: it is the result, the perceivable aftermath, of a disturbance in the energetic field...

Editor's Note from Mary Ellen Coulter: The recent Earthquake in Japan and subsequent release of radioactive materials from the nuclear power plant, have caused international concern for the complications and possible prevention of radiation toxicity. Potassium Iodide tablets were taken by many (even those not at risk), with possible negative effects on their thyroid gland. Homeopathic Therapy offers a safe and effective treatment for such exposure.

Editor's Note from Mary Ellen Coulter: Homeopathy frequently is utilized for its anti-inflammatory benefits (ie, arthritis, injuries), but new research has demonstrated its effectiveness as an anti-oxidant as well. Dentists, Plastic Surgeons, Orthopedic Surgeons and Family Practitioners, use Arnica, Traumeel and related remedies, without understanding or even questioning the mechanisms of action.

The Law of Minimum Dose states that our medicines should carefully be charged only with the amount of energy needed to correct an imbalance.  Homeopathy views the human organism as a vital energetic field and observes that disease occurs as a result of disturbance at this dynamic or energetic level...

Neurones are clever things. They send messages about pinches and bumps, heat and cold, nettle juice and lactic acid (mechanical, temperature and chemical disturbances) to the brain.

Editor's Note from Christine Breen:  British homeopath George Garlick examines some of the many facets of pain.  It is from these varied experiences of pain that homeopaths analyze cases and prescribe homeopathic medicine.

by Robin Murphy, ND

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...
