Homeopathy is based on Samual Hahnemann’s universal principle that “likes cure likes” If a remedy is given to a person with a specific wellness disturbance, it will produce those same symptoms in a healthy individual. The law of similars uses a remedy made out of the same substance(in a tiny potentized amount) that would produce that illness in a healthy person, to treat and cure an illness in a sick person.
Hahnemman, learned that wellness disruptions are the positive adaptive responses to stress that the body experiences. Symptoms are the body’s best way to heal it self. Hahnemann believed that instead of suppressing the body’s disturbances, therapies should stimulate the body’s defenses to bring the body back to homeostasis, or a healthy state.
A constitutional remedy that is best matching the “totality of symptoms” a patient is having will include the emotional, mental and physical symptoms. You will treat the whole picture and cluster of symptoms of a persons current state of well being. A constitutional remedy will restore the body, rapidly, gently, permanently, to remove and destroy the disease in the shortest and least harmful way.
Modern medicine is “allopathic” it is used to manage symptoms. The anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory, suppresses the body’s response to illness. This drives illnesses deeper and creates more chronic conditions. It does not bring healing. It is symptom management. Homeopathy helps the body’s “vital force” (energy) heal and bring the body back to balance and strengthens it to bring back health to the sick individual.
Homeopathy is safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects. It is natural. Homeopathic remedies are made from the elements found in nature –mineral, animal, and plant extracts are the base of these natural remedies which are then diluted through altering the degree of concentration to avoid creating side effects that can be disagreeable. Paradoxically, the more a homeopathic remedy is diluted the more effective a remedy will work.
Homeopathic remedies are not addictive – once relief is felt, you should not take another dose, until symptoms return. If no relief is felt, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with Homeopathy do not recur.
