Homeopathy offers a system of healing that is safe for people to use with a bit of understanding about the nature of the remedies and about their own nature. Homeopathy is unique in that it addresses the state of the person who is ill with respect to the symptoms that they suffer with at the time and takes into account the dynamic interconnection of the whole person as a complex system...

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.

Hahnemann's dedication to the ideal of healing with the smallest dose of medicine needed for cure led him to develop the use of potentized remedies, sequentially succussed ultradilutions. But the use of ultradilutions has caused scientific controversy and even ridicule, from his own day to the present. This article takes a look at how Hahnemann came to his discovery of “potentized” remedies, and considers ultradilutions in the light of recent discoveries in physics and materials science...

More than 20 years of practice have taught me certainly that not much is in our power. And still, I have seen patients making quantum leaps in some cases. This was mostly possible when the remedy had been worked out of the depth of the unconscious. Now, with the new case-taking methods we are much closer to C. G. Jung‘s ideas, because with the new case-taking method the patient has to work hard to push on the gate of the unconscious and the process is not a constant mental one anymore...

One of the most common things that people ask me is: what does this or that reaction to a remedy mean? Confusion about remedy reactions is quite understandable, since they are often quite different than reactions to conventional drugs...
Editor´s Note: The topic of Amy's article is crucial information in homeopathic case management. The homeopath must fully understand all the nuances of how the client could potentially respond to the indicated homeopathic remedy. At the same time, the client needs to be observant of his/her reactions and communicate these to the homeopath. As Amy says, it is truly a healing partnership!
