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.

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.

Over the years, as an intern and then as a I licensed therapist, I have worked heavily in the fields of abuse, trauma, addiction, and grief/loss. With individuals, couples, and families, I largely relied on two approaches: Client Centered and Cognitive Behavioral methodologies. For most of my clients, their journeys were met with healing and levels of recovering that enabled them to navigate with a more whole and well sense of being.
