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.

"The principles of Homeopathy are linked to the observation of nature."


~Luc De Schepper

 

 

Homeopathy


by Robert Medhurst

It’s probably pretty obvious to most that complementary medicine (CM) in general attracts a great deal of criticism by advocates of orthodox western medicine. Vitamins are frequently described as agents that do little more than produce expensive urine, herbs are labeled as useless if not outright dangerous. Bach flowers, reflexology and aromatherapy are dismissed as fanciful nonsense...

 

Editor's Note: Despite 200 years of documented success in treating both acute (including the most virulent epidemics) and chronic disease, Homeopathy has always been the object of forces trying to suppress it...

Homeopathy


by Judith Hanna Doshi MA, CCH (Cand)

1. Homeopathic treatment incorporates sound principles of healing, based on the viewpoint that you are a vital or energetic being rather than a material body comprised of organ systems, body parts and physical symptoms—i.e. the conventional view...

 

Editor's Note: In an earlier article ("When Acute Prescribing Isn't Enough: Whole Person Healing in Homeopathy") I looked at acute versus chronic homeopathic treatment and when to consult a professional homeopath for whole person healing. Here, I'd like to share with you 10 ways that chronic or constitutional homeopathic treatment can directly benefit you now and protect you in the future.

Homeopathy


by Luc De Schepper MD, DI Hom, CHom, Lic Ac

Some people never get relief at all, suffering throughout the year from sniffling, uncontrollable sneezing attacks, burning eyes and a nose that runs like a faucet. Many of you wake up in the morning to a salvo of pitiful sneezes. After the "machine gun sneezing" you feel as though all the blood was zapped out of your system, leaving you more tired than when you went to bed. While the air is full of singing birds and bees sucking on the sprouting flowers, you forget the joy this season is supposed to bring you...

 

 

Homeopathy


by Sam Adkins

Like eczema, asthma is an inflammatory disease. In asthma the airways become constricted by swelling, making it difficult to breathe. In developed countries 1 in 4 children have asthma as opposed to 1 in 18 people 40 years ago. Homeopathic medicines can be a viable alternative to steroid medications. They can be given as an acute treatment in place of puffers but more importantly, professional treatment–working with the whole person–can cure asthma entirely...

 

Homeopathy


by Dr. Neepa Sevak DHMS, DIHom, DHom, DHM, HMA, CCH, RSHom(NA)

"I can't sleep!" These three words can explain nights of restless anguish for those who suffer from insomnia. An occasional night without much sleep is normal, but when it continues night after night, a vicious cycle can begin that can be exhausting and extremely frustrating...

 

Editor´s Note: In this article Dr. Neepa has given symptoms and causes of insomia and its Homeopathic approach with it's management. Here the author has also given some other simple sleep hygiene measures that helps to promote a restful sleep.

Editor's Note: Mani Norland is the Principal of The School of Homeopathy, the longest running Homeopathy school in the UK. He is a passionate advocate for Homeopathy as a powerful system of medicine used by millions around the world. I especially like his "integrated medical vision" that gives people choice in their health care.

 

Homeopathy


by Lynn Amara CCH, RSHom (NAm)

It is that time of year again when weekend warriors armed with pruning shears and trowels head to gardens of every sort. As a farmer who works in both my home gardens and several community garden plots, I have suffered my share of garden injuries and have seen some unique injuries in my fellow gardeners...

 

Editor's Note: What a boon to have Lynn's homeopathic first aid guide for gardeners: homeopathic remedies work so well in all the situations she describes! Of particular note is Lynn's observation that using homeopathic remedies for these acute injuries can prevent the development of weak spots that give rise to re-injury or future inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

 

Homeopathy


by Konstantinos Pisios, MD

Homeopathy is a good alternative solution for someone with a thyroid problem who is reluctant to use conventional medicine or surgery because of the risks, side effects and the need to use medication for the rest of their life...

 

Editor's Note: Dr. Pisios spells out the benefits of homeopathic treatment for people with thyroid conditions. He shows how treating a single symptom or condition in isolation--as conventional medicine does--cannot be curative hence the need for the whole person approach that Homeopathy provides. It is important to note that Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medication.
