We are not suggesting that you can read this article and then choose the one substance, among the 3500, that is the one that best fits you. To the contrary, homeopathic case taking, case analysis, and the prescribing of the simillimum is a science and an art. We continue, after thirty years of practice, to learn more about materia medica (the medicines) and about the intricacies of case taking, of understanding our patients, and of prescribing the best possible medicine...

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...

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.

Allergies are an immune system response to substances (allergens)—pollen, dust, or mold—that the body deems as foreign and potentially harmful. This hypersensitivity triggers a chain reaction of symptoms which include runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, and more...
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!

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.

Anxiety, which seems to be increasingly prevalent, affects approximately 40 million Americans. Of these, 6 million have been diagnosed with panic disorder, anxiety that is more severe, frequent and difficult to control. The more common symptoms of palpitations, light-headedness or dizziness, nausea and a feeling of impending doom, are common and may not help with the selection of a specific homeopathic treatment...
Editor's Note: Mary Ellen presents the distinguishing features of 9 homeopathic remedies for acute episodes of anxiety or panic attacks. As always, if these symptoms recur and are hindering a person's wellbeing, he or she needs to consult a professional homeopath for constitutional treatment which can be highly effective.

"My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat..."
Editor´s Note: After reading Gina's interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia--both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments--is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!
