A strong sense of purpose, freedom, and well-being is the birthright of each of us.
Homeopathy applies principles known from antiquity to engage the innate healing mechanisms within an individual, gently restoring balance and health. This is accomplished by using inexpensive, side-effect free remedies made from natural substances. The practice of homeopathy is a blend of art and science, knowledge and perception, and can be as rewarding for the practitioner as it is to the client.
How does homeopathy work?
The basic tenet underlying the homeopathic method is that like cures like. For the last 200 years, since the founding of classical homeopathic practices by Samuel Hahnemann, a respected German physician, meticulous studies called “provings” have been conducted to determine the effects of natural substances in healthy volunteers.
In recent years, Nobel Prize -winning research in the field of quantum physics is shedding light on on how it works: until recently, we could be sure that it worked but with no explanation of the underlying mechanisms.
Where do homeopathic remedies come from?
Minerals, plants and their extracts, and a variety of animal sources provide the thousands of remedies respectfully obtained and used in homeopathic healing. The substance is specially prepared in an FDA-regulated homeopathic pharmacy through a series of dilutions. After each dilution the mixture is vigorously agitated in a machine that delivers a calibrated amount of shaking. This is called succussion. This process imprints a unique energetic pattern from the medicinal substance throughout the solution of water. This is called potentization. The end product contains no molecules of the original substance, but does carry a unique energetic imprint specific to the original plant, mineral or animal. The resultant remedy is capable of eliminating, in the person who suffers from them, symptoms similar to those produced in the proving.
Is homeopathy safe?
Homeopathic remedies are safe, non-toxic, have no side effects, and are available without prescription. They are sustainably prepared and humanely procured, and are inexpensive to produce and purchase. They never lose their effectiveness if stored correctly.
Homeopathy is practiced all over the world, and is becoming more popular in this country as interest grows in the areas of authentic approaches to individual health. Although the principles underlying the homeopathic method are simple, the art is less so, and requires expertise in case-taking and familiarity with the vast body of homeopathic knowledge called materia medica.
What can homeopathy treat?
Homeopathy treats the human condition. It has wide application, from acute fevers, sore throats and toothache, to chronic illnesses such as arthritis, eczema, asthma, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, PTSD and the effects of traumatic brain injury. The individual who suffers, rather than the disease itself or its symptoms, is the focal point of the homeopathic process.
