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...

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...
"Homeopathy and Chinese medicine are two examples of possible alternative approaches to disease that do not treat the illness as an enemy and therefore do not create new diseases.”
~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.

Regardless of scientific data showing certain alkaloids to be toxic, they do not always factor in that the extracted alkaloid may be thousands of times more toxic than the plant itself, and that many parts of the plant routinely used contain little or none of the toxicity; also that the experimenter may set up the lab tests knowing the results before the test is run...
Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: Prof. Stephen B. Palmer has submitted a wonderful article Comphrey the Miracle Plant in which he provides with optimal benefits of the herb which is popular not only in the ancient medicine of Ayurveda, but also in various other medicine systems like Alchemy, Allopathic [Dentistry and Osteopathy] , Chinese Herbalists, Homeopathy, Kempo [Japanese Traditional], Naturopathy, Shamanic, Traditional Chinese-Mongolian-Tibetan and Unani.

Homeopathy can be taken as an alternative to conventional painkillers in most situations. It is safe for children, in pregnancy, breast feeding mothers, old age and terminal illness. Homeopathic medication can be given along with pain-killers in conditions where analgesics cannot be stopped...
Editor's Note: Homeopathic treatment is tremendously effective in both acute and chronic pain situations. In this concise overview, Sonal presents some of the more common types of pain that homeopaths see. She gives some examples of remedies that can be used in acute pain situations but stresses the need for whole person homeopathic treatment where there is ongoing, chronic pain.
Editor's Note: Misha Norland, founder of The School of Homeopathy--the oldest homeopathy school in the UK--discusses the Vital Force--arguably the most fundamental concept in Homeopathy--and shares his views on how illness arises vis a vis the Vital Force.

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.

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!
