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.

I celebrate every day that I am a homeopath. It is a labor of love, filled with much joy. As a psychiatrist I enjoyed my work, but as a homeopath I have found my calling. My personal journey into homeopathy began in my last year of medical school. I was interested in learning more about alternative medicine and spent one month studying with a homeopathic physician in Chicago...




Editor's Note from Christine Breen: Ana Lamaro is a classical homeopath from Melbourne, Australia. In this wonderfully comprehensive and informative video she discusses the philosophy of homeopathy and how it works in her practice.

Mary Anne first came to me in March of 2008. She had recently been in hospital for a week for investigations for abdominal pain that she had been experiencing for 6 months. She had had an ultrasound, x rays, a CT scan, an endoscopy, a total colonoscopy, blood tests, stool samples and many biopsies with the above tests. All the test had come back as normal...




"Facts and experience must be at the root of all revelations of TRUTH. If we take a single step outside the region of observation we shall find ourselves in the infinite kingdom of fantasy and of arbitrary assumptions, the parent of disastrous delusion and of absolute nothingness."

~ Dr. Hahnemann - the founding father of Homeopathy

Most of the discussion of early intervention for autism refers to adaptive therapies, such as speech or occupational therapies, ABA, etc. However, in the biomedical realm of autism, early intervention is equally important for many reasons, not the least of which is, if a child recovers physiologically, the autistic behaviors will be reduced as well, and socially and developmentally, fewer steps will have been lost along the way, so there is less to catch up from...

For many people, though, it's an encounter with a homeopath that opens them up to the possibilities for healing and helping others with this marvellous system of medicine. Successful homeopathic treatment for themselves, a family member or even a pet will have opened their eyes to its limitless possibilities, and awakened a burning desire to know more about this genuine alternative to the conventional health system...




Editor's Note: Here's another glimpse into the tremendous impact homeopaths are making on the health of underserved populations the world over. The people of Maun, Botswana are getting individualized homeopathic care tailored to their specific needs and are reaping the benefits thanks to this dedicated group of homeopaths who donate their services.

I was eighteen years old when I purchased a full set of Schüssler’s Twelve Tissue Salts. My parents had used these remedies from time to time when I was sick as a child, and, as a young woman I became intrigued by the delicious, little healing tablets...


Editor's Note from Mary Ellen Coulter: Miranda Castro has a wealth of knowledge on her Homeopathy Website mirandacastro.com, including several videos. I particularly like this one on the cell salts which can be very useful for everyday aches, pains and imbalances.

From Gandhi and Darwin to the British Royal Family, famous people have supported and used Homeopathy throughout the decades. Recently, a French Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Luc Montagnier, endorsed homeopathic medicine...


Editor's Note from Mary Ellen Coulter: Homeopathy might seem intuitive to those of us who embrace its principles and have witnessed its healing powers, but there remains many skeptics who openly criticize this gentle and curative holistic therapy. Research such as that conducted by Dr. Luc Montagnier, helps establish a place for Homeopathy in Integrative Medicine.

Often people who come to see me are anxious about remedy dosing. This is natural, because they want to realize the maximum benefit for themselves and their children. One of the most frequently misunderstood aspects of homeopathy surrounds the actual handling of doses of homeopathic remedies or medicines...


Editor´s Note from Bharti Nathani: Homeopathy is good medicine for all the age groups of people.



by Amy Lansky, PhD

These days, when illness strikes, many of us feel like we’re on our own.  Perhaps our health care coverage is inadequate. Or perhaps we avoid using the coverage we have, for fear of establishing “pre-existing conditions.” Indeed, many of us are becoming disenchanted with conventional medical care and try to find more gentle and natural ways of dealing with illness...


Editor´s Note: This is a fascinating read about Homeopathy's place in the historical context of American medicine. Homeopathy has an incredible track record in both acute epidemic and chronic disease, as Amy explains. As a result, Homeopathy was hugely popular in the nineteenth century, until the commercial interests of Big Pharma and the conventional medical establishment forced it out of favor.
