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.

Editor's Note: Dr. Mabel Aghadiuno describes how she became interested in homeopathy and how the practice became integral to her work as a physician in general practice (GP). Although she doesn't prescribe homeopathically for every problem she sees, she uses the homeopathic approach for everyone. In other words, "everything is relevant" in homeopathy, that is, everything about the person being seen is relevant, not just information used for a conventional diagnosis.



"For each illness that doctors cure with medicine, they provoke ten in healthy people by inoculating them with the virus that is a thousand times more powerful than any microbe: the idea that one is ill."

~Marcel Proust

I had been reading about homeopathy for a little while and knew that Homeopathic Remedies for Immunizations existed (Homeoprophylaxis). I knew that somehow you could use Homeopathic Remedies for protection against targeted infectious diseases. I just didn't know exactly how to do this...

by Deborah Olenev C.C.H., RSHom (NA)

People often ask me if homeopathy can do anything for hormonal problems, and I have to tell them, “Yes, indeed, it can.”  In fact, more often than not, the health problems that women experience are related to hormonal imbalances, whether they are headaches that occur right around the time the period is due, to heightened emotional sensitivity, leading to angry outbursts or crying spells premenstrually, to the hot flashes of menopause...



by Pamela A. Pappas MD, MD(H)

Unlike botanical and nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies are regulated by the FDA through the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. Continuously updated since the 1800's, this publication defines manufacturing standards for these medications...


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: In addition to her private practice, Dr. Pappas facilitates well-being in health professionals as their health impacts the medicine they offer others. Having developed popular mental health services for medical students and residents, she writes and speaks on physicians' own healing journeys.

There are a few disorders that I receive calls for with remarkable frequency -- cystitis (also known as UTI --urinary tract infection, or bladder infection) – being one of them. One reason I am frequently contacted about UTIs is that the typical treatment of antibiotics does not seem to hold...

Editor's Note from Christine Breen: Beth is a Toronto homeopath who believes many health programs can be treated without drugs. Here she talks about natural cures, including homeopathy for UTIs.

At this school- St. Vincent’s for Handicapped Children, the children are taught their value, what they can do. Everyone is important to someone else. So we see those with legs helping those who can’t walk. Ones who can’t see are led by kids who can see, but are deaf...

And don't miss the short video by Fran demonstrating a simple memory-improving exercise.

The most common question I receive is about getting certified in homeopathy and being able to practice legally. Certification and Licensure are completely different in Homeopathy. Certification is to certify. It amounts to attesting to something...


Editor's Note from Christine Breen: Robert Field is a regular contributor to ATH and Director of the Resonance School of Homeopathy. In this piece he explains certification and licensure of homeopaths in the US. Read one of his other articles here.

I’m waking up nauseous in the mornings. Over the past three months, it happens for about a week in the month. I’ll be nauseous and retching in the beginning of the week, and then I’ll feel more queasy. In the past I had a five-month stint of nausea and vomiting every morning...


Editor's Note: This history is an example of how the client is the best source for understanding the problem they're experiencing. In fact, as in this example, the person will actually guide the homeopath directly to the source of their remedy in nature.
