"A profane man can have no more idea of the sentiments of a gentle, highly religious woman, than can a lobster."
~James Tyler Kent, 1849-1916

In conventional medicine, disease is most often conceived of as being contracted from the outside – an external noxious influence like a pathogen or a toxin. Disease is then classified by temporal duration. When a “disease” is first contracted and for the first (arbitrarily determined) period of time, it is classified as acute. Once the disease has lasted beyond this cut off period, this same disease becomes reclassified as chronic...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Acute illness in homeopathy is that which comes from the outside - life trauma. Whereas acute disease in conventional medicine is that which has not been present for long. But, according to homeopathic teaching, underlying chronic states can suddenly appear - this is treated as a chronic illness. Dr Glen's teachings are very clear. Thank you.

Anxiety in pets manifests in many different ways. The recent registration of fluoxetine for canine separation anxiety has led to much discussion about this particular problem, but there are many other ways in which anxiety affects pets and causes worry to owners...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Homeopathy is a great tool in veterinary medicine. For those who know its wonders, one small dose can treat many large problems. Anxiety is one reason many pets are rehomed – not that the rehoming helps, it just means the pet parent can no longer cope. With the right homeopathic medicine, these problems can be cured and pets can stay with their parents.

Some people never get relief at all, suffering throughout the year from sniffling, uncontrollable sneezing attacks, burning eyes and a nose that runs like a faucet. Many of you wake up in the morning to a salvo of pitiful sneezes. After the "machine gun sneezing" you feel as though all the blood was zapped out of your system, leaving you more tired than when you went to bed. While the air is full of singing birds and bees sucking on the sprouting flowers, you forget the joy this season is supposed to bring you...
Editor´s Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: Although allergy 'season' is winding down and Spring is a little ways off, the message in this article is timeless. Luc provides portraits of several homeopathic remedies that can provide relief for seasonal allergies. As with all conditions, however, removing the predisposition to getting the condition through constitutional homeopathic treatment is the key to long term health and vibrancy!

This client was a 46-year-old female when she was first seen February 1, 2005. Her dear friend and companion had recently died, and her affect was very sad and flat. Medications included Trazodone, Clarazapate, Toprol, Azmacort and Serevent...
Editor's Note: Although it would seem self-evident, this history is another example of how the client is the very best source for understanding the problem they're experiencing. In this example of "sensation case-taking", the person is so attuned to the state of her "dis-ease" that she describes and leads the homeopath to the source of her remedy in nature.

So I have had my case taken—for the 4th time. I think everyone doing homeopathy should also be a patient. The more whole you are the better you can be objective with your own patients. It is really almost impossible to treat yourself...
Editor's Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: Greg's short yet powerful article addresses a crucial aspect of Homeopathy--the need for homeopaths themselves to be as healthy as possible in order for them to be able to facilitate healing in their clients. The homeopath Greg consulted uses the Sensation method of Rajan Sankaran to find the inner state of the person that gives rise to dis-ease. As Greg says, the deepest healing occurs on the energetic level.

Homeopathy can be subtle and gradual in its curative action. However, there are combinations of certain general responses that indicate a movement toward healing...
Editor's Note: Tina explains the various combinations which indicate a curative response to a remedy and how a temporary worsening of symptoms, called a 'homeopathic aggravation', is often a sign of the body working to heal itself.
