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.




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

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.



by Dr. Dinesh Chauhan

I came across a Serbian toddler

For the first time language was a barrier

One sharp glance from her and I realised

Conversing with her would be a tedious ride...


Editor´s Note: Here is a beautiful case of a child suffering from thyroiditis, and how beautifully the case was taken by Dr. Dinesh Chauhan.



by Oonagh Taeger, DHom (UK), PCH

Homeopaths sometimes refer to the vital force. By this we mean the life principle which maintains us as living beings, with drives for survival, learning, love and creativity. Our defense mechanism, our immune system, our homeostatic mechanisms, are all agents of this force...

Editor's Note: Oonagh Taeger is a seriously dedicated homeopath and practitioner of the Sensation Method developed by Rajan Sankaran. Her website Turning Leaf Homeopathy has invaluable information about homeopathy. Read Oonagh's other articles on ATH.



by Sinead Fine MAHA

The sun rose higher in the sky and by 1pm we felt the essence was ready. The water was colored slightly yellow and the flowers were faded. We gently picked them out with the same twigs and put them back at the base of the tree. Then we emptied half the bottle of brandy into our Mother Tincture bottle and poured it to full with the Hawthorn-infused water.  We discarded the rest of the water at the base of the tree, giving thanks. We now had our Mother Tincture...


by Tessa Jordan RSHom

This is the first question many homeopaths ask me when they hear of the flower remedies in my homeopathic practice. As homeopaths, we have a large and increasing materia medica, and using classical prescriptions can be so effective. Why would we want to bring in another modality? Tessa Jordan, a homeopath and Bach flower practitioner explains...




Editor´s Note: Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Robert Ullman have a vast amount of experience successfully treating children with Attention Deficit and Autism Spectrum disorders using individualized homeopathic remedies. As they mention in the video, their treatment expectations are high and they get impressive results with well chosen remedies and, presumably, diligent case management. In this video Judyth and Robert describe some of the positive changes that can be expected with these children.



by Miranda Castro FSHom, RSHom (NA), CCH

I recently met a woman at a dinner party whose eyes grew large when she heard I was a homeopath. "I just had my first consultation with a homeopath for a terrible sore throat..."


Editor´s Note: Finding the one remedy that resonates with a person's individuality--that is homeopathic to the case--is the mission of every homeopath. Here, we are able to get under the thinking cap of a highly experienced homeopath like Miranda, to see how she operates as a 'medical detective', as she puts it. Fascinating!



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.




by Susan Drury RSHom (NA), CCH

I was 31, married, mother to a young child.  Recently moved from New York City to my husband’s hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, suddenly I began to experience excruciating, burning pain stabbing from my right jaw across the cheek to my nose...


Editor's Note: Novice homeopaths often gravitate to remedies like Sulphur, Graphites and Arsenicum Album when treating cases of eczema or impetigo. Susan Drury's case is a wonderful example of how an often overlooked remedy, Daphne Mezereum, although best known for skin conditions, also is an excellent remedy for neuralgia. In this case, Mezereum, successfully treated a case of trigeminal neuralgia and improved the mental and emotional state of the patient.
