Homeopathy

imageWhat is Homeopathy? 
Homeopathy is a system of treatment where homeopathic remedies are used activate the body’s own natural healing and recovery system, in order to overcome disease and illness and improve general health and wellbeing.

It is well known that the body heals itself. All the nutrients we take in, exercise, sleep and even our emotions are all kept in balance or homeostasis. Homeopaths see this healing ability as the root of illness; if the mechanism is broken then symptoms appear before illness, telling us something is wrong. So these symptoms should not be suppressed, but instead used to identify the cause and remedies to bring the body back into balance.

There are various reasons why this innate mechanism is broken.  Because of this, a homeopath will spend 90 minutes getting to know the patient inside and out to identity the cause of imbalance. We review medical history, lifestyle including diet, nutrition, as well as mental and emotional wellbeing.

 

The founder of homeopathy Samuel Hahneman was a doctor who in part studied the effects of toxins on the body. As a toxicologist, he noted that the amount of a substance made a profound difference in causing illness and disease. Based on this doctrine of “like cures like,” according to which a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure similar symptoms in sick people.

 

As the discovery of this amazing science became known, it was taken up by doctors world wide.  It only began to get a bad rap at the onset of commercial drug manufactuers, who saw it as a competitor.  The drug companies and FDA in the early 20th century outlawed the practice of homeopathy in the U.S.

 

Today it is used by millions of Americans, and most countries regulate and have reserved state support for schools and institutions.  The Queen of England and the royal family are ardent supporters of the Royal Homeopathic Hospital and college in London.  India has hundreds of homeopathic colleges and it is recognized as part of the national systems of medicine regulated by the National Institute of Homeopathy.

In Europe the first region of the world that became highly industrialized, homeopathy developed into several branches; biochemical, classical and combination treatment approaches. Because of the pollution levels, homeopathy help resolved environmental toxin’s health impact in Europe.  And during the 20th century it has enjoyed in large part the support of scientific institutions and have developed well ahead of it’s U.S. counter part.

Biotherapies include homeopathically prepared oligotherapy, organ remedies and gemmotherapy; these branches developed from homeopathy is principally used for  drainage. It’s main role is to detoxify tissues that have accumulated waste material due to the malfunction of the body’s eliminative processes, under pressure from environmental pollution, poor diet and the modern lifestyle.
We  use homeopathy to treat the patient and not the disease.  Homeopathy and related therapies adhere to the more classical tradition of the ‘simplex’ (i.e. one remedy at a time); biotherapy remedies tend to be used in a different way.  They are frequently also used either symptomatically or systemically as an adjunct to homeopathy and therapeutic approaches, or indeed as a sole treatment in their own right.
