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.

Are you well? How’s your energy? If I were to ask you to rate both your well-being and your energy on a ten point scale where 0 is the worst level you could imagine and 10 is the best, what numbers would you give me right now? You’re able to do that. Instantly. But how do you do it?...


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: ATH is delighted to have this wonderful post from homeopath and doctor, Bob Leckridge, from his informative and engaging blog: Heros not Zombies. Check out his blog for all things homeopathic.




Editor's Note: After suffering for more than a dozen years with extreme pain and getting no results from conventional approaches, Anna turned to homeopathic medicine that she was already using for her child. The positive results from her treatment have lasted for years and both of her children have never had a prescription drug thanks to their treatment with Homeopathy!

Regular and satisfactory bowel movement is bliss! But sadly not many people enjoy this gift and suffer from what we term as constipation. Hard, difficult to pass stools irrespective of the frequency of bowel movement is also called as constipation...


Editor´s Note: This is very short and to the point article on constipation by Dr. Shreya. Regular and satisfactory bowel movement is bliss!

Editor's Note: Misha Norland, founder of The School of Homeopathy--the oldest homeopathy school in the UK--discusses the Vital Force--arguably the most fundamental concept in Homeopathy--and shares his views on how illness arises vis a vis the Vital Force.

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.

Ligaments are strong, flexible fibers that hold bone together. A sprain is an injury to the ligaments around a joint. It happens when a ligament is stretched too far or tears. The affected area could be very painful and swollen. While a severe sprain is extremely painful and needs immediate medical attention, moderate and minor sprains can be treated at home with natural remedies...


Editor´s Note: A sprain is a tear in a ligament. Sophia presents four homeopathic remedies that are commonly used in acute sprains with their indications.

Depression is a chronic illness that affects more than 21 million American adults and children annually and is the leading cause of disability for individuals, ages 15 to 44...


Editor´s Note: It is becoming more and more widely recognized that Homeopathy excels at treating mental and emotional disorders without the adverse effects of conventional approaches. Here, Konstantinos gives us an overview of a problem affecting massive amounts of people: depression. With a case illustration from his own clinic, he demonstrates why Homeopathy is the sensible treatment choice for a whole person approach to depression.



"A single symptom of disease is no more the disease itself than a single foot is the man himself."

~ Samuel Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy from The Organon of Medicine




Editor´s Note: Imagine a health care setting where your emotions really matter! This physician uses Homeopathy in his practice because he knows it works and because he knows it addresses the all-important emotional level of his patients.




Editor's Note: In this video Angela describes her introduction to homeopathic remedies for the treatment of intractable health problems. After reaching the end of her options with conventional medicine ten years ago, she sought help from a homeopath for chronic bladder problems. After taking a homeopathic remedy, she was surprised to experience near-immediate relief, and since then she's been able to use remedies at home for a wide variety of acute injuries and illnesses.
