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...

To illustrate suppression at work, take the hypothetical example of eczema suppressed with cortisone cream, a common practice in modern medicine. When these topical applications continue over time, the eczema can disappear, only to be replaced by asthma, a more serious condition because it involves the lungs and the respiratory function (versus the more external skin)...
Editor's Note: In Part 1 of my article on Suppression, I showed how prevalent suppression is in our 'fast relief' culture. I introduced you to the concept of Vital Force, its relationship to symptoms and the risk involved in suppressing them. In Part 2 I give everyday examples of suppression, focussing on the harmful effects of prescription drugs. In my Blueprint for Better Health I suggest ways to reduce or eliminate suppression from our lives in order to achieve a genuine improvement in health.

In my Homeopathy practice, one of the first things I make a mental note of when I see a new client is the number and type of suppressive influences the client has experienced over the course of his or her lifetime. This information helps me to select the remedy that most closely mirrors my client’s state of dis-ease and its constellation of unique symptoms....
Editor's Note: Suppression is one of the key contributing factors to ill health. Each one of us has a history of suppressive influences and events in our lives, starting from birth or even before. You'd be amazed how extensive the list can be!
Many people may think that alternative medicine is a relatively new practice but types of alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, have been around for over 2,000 years...
Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: "Medicine" has been around probably since the dawn of man. Over the ages it has evolved into a profit-making business, where the bottom-line often seems more important than healing. With ever more pills to "cure" us (I was amazed that we now have a prescription drug to enhance eyelashes --- really?!?) but with side effects often more dire than the original "disease" (I fail to understand how a pill that "treats" depression "may" cause suicidal thoughts --- wouldn't that be contra-indicated?), more people are turning to "alternative medicine." That's really a misnomer since it is Western-based medicine is "alternative" given that we describe as "alternative" was used long before Big Pharma. And isn't homeopathy's theory (i.e., "like cures like") the basis of vaccines (i.e., introduce an inert or weakened strain of the virus to let the body "kill" it)?

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.

The basic tenet of Homeopathy is the Law of Similars – Similia Similibus Curantur or Like Cures Like. If a substance given in large quantity can cause a set of symptoms, this same substance will be curative if given in minute quantities to a patient exhibiting similar symptoms...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Achieving a cure in disease: is it high doses of an "anti" medicine or miniscule does of a similar medicine? You chose.
