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...

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.

In 2011 I returned home from a two month trip to India and Thailand to a cat named Chloe who was distraught, skinny, and had both developed and passed kidney stones during my absence. A few months passed with her continuing to look distraught and unhealthy and then I decided, after multiple visits to the Veterinarians, to try massage to help her...
Editor´s Note: How I healed my cat through Massage and Homeopathy. Look for a companion video soon showing the massage method I used for Chloe the cat.

When Hahnemann experimentally dosed himself with China in 1790, he conducted the first homeopathic proving, if an informal one. A proving is a controlled experiment in which the effects of a medicine are tested. (Homeopathic medicines are known as remedies.)...
Editor´s Note: We often hear of the vast amount of remedies in the homeopathic materia medica--numbering in the thousands--but how these remedies come into clinical usefulness remains a mystery to most of us. Here, Oonagh explains the fascinating process of a homeopathic proving. Hats off to all the homeopaths whose hard work and dedication to expanding and refining our materia medica through provings enhances the healing potential of Homeopathy!

The principles that underpin homeopathy were laid down clearly by the founder of the art, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in his Organon of Medicine(1). In a footnote to Aphorism 260 of the sixth edition of this venerable work(2), he outlines the factors that are likely to adversely affect the activity of the Similimum, or remedy whose proving picture best matches the presentation of the patient...
Editor´s Note: Robert's article serves as a reminder to both homeopathic practitioners and clients that attention must be paid to factors that can potentially antidote the positive action of a homeopathic simillimum or adversely affect the properties of the remedies themselves. While there remains some debate on these issues, homeopathic remedies appear to be fairly hardy although some degree of caution in the handling of remedies is probably the wise course.
Editor's Note: Dr. Jeremy Swayne started out as a conventional general practitioner but was led to Homeopathy because he wanted a much more comprehensive model of health and illness that provides real solutions and not just band-aid treatment. He is absolutely right in saying that Homeopathy is not easy to practice: the homeopath doesn't always get the right remedy on the first or even the second try--as a result clients tend to drop out too soon...

Homeopathy and astrology have colluded to provide an extraordinary series of astrological tonics, one particularly suited to each of the 12 signs, Aries through Pisces. These are called "homeopathic cell salts" or "biochemical cell salts", and can be used by someone without a medical background to improve the quality of health for themselves, their families and their friends...
