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 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.

Multiple Sclerosis means scaring in many places. When the myelin sheath is attacked by virus, infection or an auto-immune response it can cause a demylination of the sheath. Then the nerves do not conduct properly and it can effect the sensory system,  motor system and mood.  Multiple Sclerosis, also known commonly as MS, can have many symptoms and is often difficult to diagnose in the early stages...

Insomnia, when chronic, is often a complex problem with many underlying factors. More often than not anxiety plays a major part. Even if anxiety was not the original trigger, the sense of anxiety that arises around not being able to sleep means that it can become a significant and understandable factor in insomnia. Homeopathy has a solution...

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...

With homeopathic treatment, improved sleep is often one of the first changes reported by the client!

 

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.

Interview With Filmmaker Laurel Chiten

As a patient, I went to see Dr. Luc De Schepper many years ago. His love of homeopathy was so infectious! He suggested I make a film about the use of homeopathy for autism. I needed people who had shot “before” footage of their child. Dr. Luc De Schepper told me “I have the family for you!” He introduced me to the Korns, Nancy and Evan, who have an autistic son, Lucas...

 

Editor´s Note: Just One Drop (working title) is a powerful documentary-in-the-making by Laurel Chiten and Blind Dog Films. The project started out examining the homeopathic treatment of an autistic child but its scope has expanded to a much broader view of Homeopathy. Watch the fundraising trailer accompanying the Q & A with Laurel and please consider supporting a very worthwhile project as it nears completion, a project that will help create greater awareness of the amazing art and science of Homeopathy!
