With Valentine's Day coming up, it's sometimes good to remember a remedy that can help when love doesn't go our way—Ignatia Amara...
Editor´s Note: In this short article, Amy presents the key indications for the homeopathic remedy Ignatia in situations of acute grief involving loss of a loved one for whatever reason. While Ignatia is one of the main remedies to consider for grief, there are several other important ones, the choice being determined by the totality of symptoms. If grief is ongoing, treatment with the person's constitutional remedy is highly advisable.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how healthy you really are? How often do you find yourself reaching for anything that will give you fast relief for your symptoms? Do you wonder whether managing your symptoms in this way qualifies as being in good health, as conventional medical thought would have us believe? What in fact does being truly healthy look like?...
Editor´s Note: It is not an overstatement to say that we take our health for granted and that what we regard as health is really just the suppression of symptoms. In this article I turn conventional ideas of health and disease on their head and present a new definition based on classical principles of Homeopathy dating back to Hahnemann.

Homeopathy is a good alternative solution for someone with a thyroid problem who is reluctant to use conventional medicine or surgery because of the risks, side effects and the need to use medication for the rest of their life...
Editor's Note: Dr. Pisios spells out the benefits of homeopathic treatment for people with thyroid conditions. He shows how treating a single symptom or condition in isolation--as conventional medicine does--cannot be curative hence the need for the whole person approach that Homeopathy provides. It is important to note that Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medication.
"A profane man can have no more idea of the sentiments of a gentle, highly religious woman, than can a lobster."

One summer Sunday I received a phone call from a friend of a friend of a friend. I was their last resort. Who could they find who might be free on a Sunday to visit an alternative boys’ residential school in the country just outside London?...
Editor's Note: Here, Francis demonstrates the amazing efficacy of Homeopathy in an acute situation that affects a number of people from the same cause. Even though all the students suffered from the same food poisoning, more than one remedy was administered based on the different characteristic ways the condition presented in the boys.

No two people are the same, and not every cold is the same either! Some come on suddenly while others take a few days to really hit us. Homeopathy is the medicine that addresses the illnesses based on the symptoms that present. It could be the “cold” or “flu”, but there isn’t one remedy per illness...
Editor's Note from Christine Breen: This is an excerpt from Joette’s latest book, “How to Raise a Drug Free Family”, which she’ll be using to teach her first webinar course for mothers. Read another of Joette's articles on ATH here.

It’s about time I address the issue of menopause. Many women call or come in to my office with problems associated with the end of menses. Menses in homeopathy is very close to the vital force; although we can live without reproducing (as in the decision or event we do not have children, or the loss of female reproductive organs through hysterectomy), it is part and parcel of who we are...
Editor´s Note: Individualized homeopathic treatment should be a first line of defense for a woman experiencing menopausal symptoms. Renita explains some of the physiological processes that occur during menopause but, like she says, every woman experiences the transition in a unique way and should be treated as a unique person.
We at ATH are committed to bringing together a worldwide community of individuals and organizations
dedicated to informing and educating people on topics relating to alternative healing of mind, body,
spirit and the planet at large.
