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.

by Greg Meyer MD, MD(H), MSPH

So I have had my case taken—for the 4th time. I think everyone doing homeopathy should also be a patient. The more whole you are the better you can be objective with your own patients. It is really almost impossible to treat yourself...

 

Editor's Note: Greg's short yet powerful article addresses a crucial aspect of Homeopathy--the need for homeopaths themselves to be as healthy as possible in order for them to be able to facilitate healing in their clients. The homeopath Greg consulted uses the Sensation method of Rajan Sankaran to find the inner state of the person that gives rise to dis-ease. As Greg says, the deepest healing occurs on the energetic level.

 

Homeopathy


by Randall Neustaedter OMD, LAc

Homeopathic treatment for children can be separated into two categories: self-limiting, acute conditions such as colds, sore throats, and stomach flu, or persistent, chronic conditions such as allergies and eczema. Homeopathy is successful in both categories...

 

Editor's Note: Dr. Neustaedter provides excellent and yet simple to understand explanation of acute and chronic illnesses for treating children with homeopathy...


Homeopathy


by David Johnson, CCH

This client was a 46-year-old female when she was first seen February 1, 2005. Her dear friend and companion had recently died, and her affect was very sad and flat. Medications included Trazodone, Clarazapate, Toprol, Azmacort and Serevent...

 

Editor's Note: Although it would seem self-evident, this history is another example of how the client is the very best source for understanding the problem they're experiencing. In this example of "sensation case-taking", the person is so attuned to the state of her "dis-ease" that she describes and leads the homeopath to the source of her remedy in nature.

 

 

Homeopathy


by Oonagh Taeger

A lot of attention has been given to the psychosomatic link between emotions and illness. This is an intuitive connection for many people to make because when we feel bad emotionally we also feel bad in our bodies, and in many cases we notice clear physical symptoms from negative emotions. These may be tense muscles, headaches, stomach upsets – but truly, any symptom which your body has become practiced at producing you may notice becoming active when you are in the midst of strong negative emotion...

Homeopathy


by Tina Williams-Wolf, IBCLC, HMA

Homeopathy can be subtle and gradual in its curative action. However, there are combinations of certain general responses that indicate a movement toward healing...



Editor's Note: Tina explains the various combinations which indicate a curative response to a remedy and how a temporary worsening of symptoms, called a 'homeopathic aggravation', is often a sign of the body working to heal itself.

Homeopathy


by Barbara Etcovitch, BA, MA, DHom (UK), RSHom (NA), CCH, RCSHom, AIEM

Conventional medicine treats in opposites, giving a pain "killer" for pain and "anti-" substances for inflammation, depression and other ailments. People expect the same suppressive procedures to apply in the prescription of a homeopathic remedy. They do not...

 

Editor's Note: Barbara's discussion of acute vs. chronic illness is a very important consideration in Homeopathic case taking. The astute Homeopath must distinguish between true acute and acute flare-ups of the client's chronic state, the latter being much more common, in ongoing case management.

 

Homeopathy


by Amy Lansky, PhD

Sometimes it sure gets frustrating! Almost every day I hear or read the same old refrains:

* “There is no evidence that homeopathy works.”
* “Homeopathy is just the placebo effect.”
* “Homeopathy is dangerous...”

 

Editor´s Note: In this article, Amy makes a convincing argument that Homeopathy is serious science with plenty of research evidence to back it up. Furthermore, she examines how the so-called 'quackbusters'--whose mission in life is to destroy Homeopathy's credibility--are simply too ignorant of the facts or too fearful to be taken seriously. Amy provides some great links to delve further into the research supporting the validity of Homeopathy.

 

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


by Pat Deacon RSHom, HMC, ANN

Giving birth, at its best, is a completely natural human process that requires little or no assistance. Rarely, though, do we see examples of this in our culture today. We have lost touch with the normalcy of birth...

 

Editor's Note: In this helpful article for moms-to-be, Pat describes the various complications that could occur during the birthing process and the corresponding homeopathic remedies that can smooth out the process and avoid more invasive procedures. Homeopathy is a great ally in the birthing room!
