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 Mary Ellen Coulter, MD


Intestinal Flora are increasingly in the medical and lay news. Recently, an article in our local newspaper, made the astounding declaration that since 90% of the live matter in our bodies is comprised of intestinal bacteria, we should all pay better attention to maintaining a healthy balance of these organisms...

 

Editor's Note from Dr. Mary Ellen Coulter: Occasionally a well chosen remedy that had previously helped a patient fails to act. Constitutional Homeopaths might consider a miasmatic remedy to help clear an underlying genetic predisposition. The bowel nosodes offer another too in prescribing, when the intestinal flora have been altered by antibiotics, drugs or other stresses to the immune system. This article is meant to familiarize homeopaths with the existence of these bowel nosodes.

 

Homeopathy


by Pamela A. Pappas MD, MD(H)

Skin is amazing. It’s flaunted, ogled, and tanned within an inch of its life. It’s our body’s largest (and heaviest!) organ, but gets taken for granted until something goes wrong. Still, it releases toxins, keeps our innards warm, juicy and safe, and continuously renews itself. It even finds time to make Vitamin D!...

 

Editor´s Note: In our fast paced, stress filled culture, skin ailments like acne and eczema--just to name two--are very common among susceptible people, even adults. In her superb article, Pamela explains the homeopathic interpretation of chronic skin ailments as a reflection of a deeper, systemic imbalance  that needs to be treated wholistically. Of particular note is Pamela's discussion of the process of healing as it pertains to skin issues--slow but sure!

 

 Homeopathy


by Miranda Castro FSHom, RSHom (NA), CCH

Many homeopaths, believing that the explanation of how homeopathy works is secondary to its success with literally millions of patients, have traditionally refused to reveal the names of the medicines they give. This and the lack of information they have provided about their practice has led to an aura of secrecy in which myths abound. It is worth looking at a few of these misapprehensions...

 

Editor´s Note: Miranda's article lays out some of the common misunderstandings about Homeopathy. Although it is usually promoted as a "safe, gentle and effective" mode of treatment, it must be recognized that Homeopathy is a complex treatment modality that requires considerable skill to administer and manage effectively, preferably by a professional homeopath.

 

Homeopathy


by Susan Drury

Recently the Canadian broadcasting company’s Marketplace TV program aired an hour-long “investigation” entitled “Homeopathy – Cure or Con?” At the same time, the homeopathic community is being warned that internationally, various anti-homeopathy groups are mobilizing organized events and media propaganda with the goal of discrediting homeopathy and ultimately making remedies unavailable to the public...

There’s nothing like crawling in between two cool sheets and falling into blissful slumber. Maybe it’s been easy for me because I keep so busy during the day that it’s never been a problem...

 

Editor´s Note: Sleep is so important! Sound sleep is both a prerequisite to, and a marker of, good health! Renita reviews some of the main factors that contribute to insomnia and some of the measures we can take to overcome these. With homeopathic treatment, improved sleep is often one of the first changes reported by the client!

 

Homeopathy


by Krista Heron, ND, DHANP

Patients often say how much the homeopathic consultation, or first constitutional interview, is like therapy. I believe what they mean is that they did not expect to reveal, nor had they ever done so in a doctor’s office before, parts of themselves or their life story so completely. That their telling was more similar to what they share with their therapist or counselor then a physician...

 

 

Homeopathy


by Dr. Sonal Hattangdi-Haridas BHMS (Mum), HMD (Lon)

Homeopathy can be taken as an alternative to conventional painkillers in most situations. It is safe for children, in pregnancy, breast feeding mothers, old age and terminal illness. Homeopathic medication can be given along with pain-killers in conditions where analgesics cannot be stopped...

 

Editor's Note: Homeopathic treatment is tremendously effective in both acute and chronic pain situations. In this concise overview, Sonal presents some of the more common types of pain that homeopaths see. She gives some examples of remedies that can be used in acute pain situations but stresses the need for whole person homeopathic treatment where there is ongoing, chronic pain.

 

Homeopathy


 

by Madeleine Innocent

Home prescribing is, naturally, limited to the less complicated ailments. But there’s a tremendous amount you can do at home.


Editor's note:  Although the author states that if you take the wrong remedy nothing happens it is recommended that you seek advise from a professional homeopath if symptoms seem to worsen.


by Mary Aspinwall IS Hom, PCH

From an early age I had extremely poor health. By the time I was 19 years old I was very, very ill and despite lots of conventional treatment and invasive testing, I was just becoming weaker and weaker, sicker and sicker. At the time I was living in London and a dear friend of mine called Fred said: “You’ve got to go and see Dr. Dave...”


Editor's Note: Mary gives us a heartfelt testimonial to how Homeopathy helped her with her own health crises. She makes two points that are absolute gems: One, that if you've had success with Homeopathy, please pay it forward by sharing your experience with someone who could benefit. Two, don't wait until your health begins to deteriorate to be treated homeopathically. Do it now for a healthy future!

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.

Editor's Note: Lee Formica gives us a brief introduction to treating infertility with Homeopathy, based on the highly successful protocol developed by fellow Aussie homeopath Liz Lalor. No, you didn't hear it wrong, those success rate numbers are accurate!
