What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural medicine for treating and/or curing disease based on the administration of small doses of substances called remedies that in large amounts produce symptoms in healthy individuals similar to those of the disease itself.
The science and art of homeopathy embody what many people envision as a 21st century medicine. Homeopathy is a medical approach that respects the wisdom of the body. It is an approach that utilizes medicines that stimulate the bodies own immune and defense system to initiate the healing process. It is an approach that individualizes medicines according to the totality of the person's physical, emotional, and mental symptoms. It is an approach that is widely recognized to be safe. And it is an approach that can be potentially very effective in treating the new types of diseases that are afflicting us now and will affect us in the 21st century.
How does homeopathy address patients with infectious diseases?
Homeopathic treatment is ideal to optimize the body's natural defenses against microbes. With the appropriate homeopathic treatment, people recover from infectious diseases, even the most serious ones, gently and rapidly. During past great epidemics such as diphtheria, scarlet fever, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, malaria, etc., homeopathy decreased mortality by 10 to 30 times versus conventional medicine. During the infamous Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19, it has been estimated that 25 to 50 million people died world wide. In the United States alone, 550,000 died, approximately 10% of the people afflicted with the flu. Homeopathic physicians documented then more than 62,000 patients treated with homeopathy resulting in a mortality of 0.7%. For people who were sick enough to be hospitalized, conventional medicine had a mortality of 30% while with 27,000 documented hospitalized cases, homeopathy was reporting a mortality of 1.05% (Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy 1921; 13:1028-43).
Which conditions are outside the scope of homeopathy?
If a patient has a problem that necessitates a surgical intervention, the homeopath will refer this patient to a surgeon. But as surgical interventions are a shock to the organism, homeopathic treatment will be ideal to prepare the patient for surgery and help them recover from the operation. Of course, cases with dislocation or fracture will be dealt with by an orthopedic doctor. For less serious mechanical physical problems, patents will be referred to a chiropractor, osteopath, massotherapist or other appropriate therapist. Generally, people afflicted with genetic, congenital, or fixed metabolic diseases or with very advanced degeneration cannot always expect full recovery, but more often a palliative relief with homeopathy, free of side effects usually expected when palliation is done with modern drugs.
What symptoms matter?
As homeopathy relies on prescribing one remedy to your precise combination of symptoms, all your symptoms should be included in the process.
Most of us have a few niggles that have been with us so long we don't even notice them anymore. (i.e., cold feet) These all need your full attention. You should also include things which you might not even class as symptoms, such as a persistent itch behind your ear.
Aside from the obvious nature of your complaint (i.e. headache). things to notice include:
• State of mind (including fears, anxieties, attitudes etc.)
• Colour and consistency and regularity of your stool
• What makes a particular symptom feel worse or better?
• Where exactly is each problem located?
• When did symptoms first occur, and what bought them on?
• Your sleep pattern
• What are you sensitive to (i.e. light, cold, heat, drafts, touch, criticism etc.)
• For women, where you are on your monthly cycle.
How are Homeopathic Remedies prepared?
Remedies are made from variety of diluted substances such as plants, minerals, animal products, insects, X-rays, colours, diseases, moon and sun light, vaccinations, and many more. Remedies are repeatedly diluted and succussed (vigorously shaken). The more diluted and succussed the more powerful they become (due to high frequency).
This is opposite to allopathic drugs and is the hardest thing to comprehend by many people. Most of us believe that the stronger the medicine the more is in it. Think about the difference between Tylenol One and Three. With Homeopathy it is the other way around.
Homeopathic remedies come in many different potencies. The lower potencies contain the original substance while the higher potencies contain only energetic imprint of the substance. Although the substance is no longer there the blueprint of that substance remains. I think of this as a hologram. Take one piece of a holographic picture and start cutting it into smaller and smaller pieces. No matter how small the piece will be it still contains the entire picture of the original blueprint. Homeopathic remedies are just that, holographic minute pieces. Since some of our remedies are diluted far beyond Avogadro’s number (6.23 x 10-23), and the substance is no longer detected, the original information still remains in the water.
