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 Amy Lansky, PhD

Is it an accident that the word “patient” has two meanings? Of course not. As a patient (noun) we must be patient (adjective). This is especially true when you are the parent of an autistic child...


Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: How do parents of autistic children determine which alternative therapies are most effective? Usually by trial and practice. Amy Lansky chose homeopathy for her son, a process chronicled in her book "Impossible Cure." In this article she provides a supportive, realistic guide for helping parents manage long term therapies for autism and other chronic conditions. It encourages patience and meeting children where they are. It recommends celebrating every improvement and recognizes the importance of allowing the process to unfold organically, wise guidance that could be applied to parenting in general.


Homeopathy


"The essence of a human being is our individuality, from our fingerprint, to our DNA, to our face, to our thoughts, to our symbols, to the source we are expressing. The essence of homeopathy is the respect, actually the glorification, of that individuality."

~Linda Johnston MD in The Child's World

Editor's Note: Bhawisha explains how Homeopathy is truly customized medicine in that it targets the unique physical and emotional patterns of the individual. I would add that the mental and spiritual uniqueness are also addressed by the well chosen homeopathic remedy!

 

Homeopathy


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!

In this video Judyth and Robert describe some of the positive changes that can be expected with these children.

 

Homeopathy


by Laurie DeFrain Stemm

It was the beginning of a wonderful vacation in southern Brazil. My husband, our two boys, and I were having so much fun swimming on the beach in the crystal blue waves all afternoon. By sunset, we began watching the colors of the day drift into the sea...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great example of the well chosen homeopathic remedy's ability to trigger a speedy healing response in a sudden onset acute illness. Without a hospital nearby (it is always advisable to seek medical care in an unfamiliar situation like this), Laurie relied on good judgment and her knowledge of homeopathic first aid to find a remedy that came closest to matching her son's symptoms.

by Dr.Dinesh Chauhan, Consulting Homoeopath

A unique competition was held between a hefty wrestler and a small child. In this competition the wrestler was supposed to completely imitate the child and do everything that his little competitor did. The wrestler should run if the child runs, play as the child did, make faces like him, say what he said, and do exactly what he did...

 

Editor´s Note: In this article Dr. Dinesh Chauhan has described the unknown fear of a child through a case of hypopigmented patches and recurrent upper respiratory tract infections.so it is very important to understand a child with their pains and fears and suffering.

 

Homeopathy


by Jane Tara Cicchetti RSHom (NA), CCH

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine that uses natural, non-toxic remedies that stimulate the inherent healing capacity within the mind and body...

 

Editor´s Note: Among the many tools used by the modern homeopath to arrive at a remedy that can heal on the deepest level, dreams are one of the most important. Jane explains how, with increasing occurrence of suppression of symptoms, dreams play a crucial role in understanding the complexity of a person in the context of homeopathic treatment of chronic dis-ease.

by Francis Treuherz MA, RSHom, FSHom

One day in March, 2002, I was at home with my two sons, aged 3 and 8. Suddenly, I was in extreme agony with pain in my back … or my side …

 

Editor´s Note: Francis shares his personal experience with kidney stones and how Homeopathy helped him get through the crisis. He used his knowledge and expertise to find a remedy that specifically targeted the formation of stones. In general, however, he advises consulting a homeopath who will find your constitutional remedy to address any issues you might have with stones, nodules or calcifications.

by Renita Herrmann CCH, RSHom (NA), MS

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!

by Rehanni Khaseipoul DVM

After 12 years of conventional Veterinary practice, I began to get frustrated. Animals with chronic skin disease were the worst challenge...

 

Editor´s Note: Rehanni's passion and commitment to healing her animal patients with Homeopathy began with a personal experience that opened her eyes to the amazing power of this remarkable healing modality. After reading her story, you might just want to find a homeopathic veterinarian for your own pets!
