| A German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the
late 18th century, developed homeopathy. It s principles,
however, have been in use by other physicians for
at least 2000 years. Hippocrates, the Greek Father
of Medicine wrote in the 4th century B.C. "through
the like, disease is produced, and through the application
of the like, it is cured".
In the 15th century, Paracelsus also used these
principles in his medical practice. But it was Hahnemann
who really developed this form of medicine into
a science, popularizing the phrase "similia similibus
currentur" meaning like is cured by like.
Homeopathy has a rich history of being practiced
by people from all walks of Life. Medical Doctors,
Dentists, Naturopaths, Veterinarians, Chiropractors,
Osteopaths, Psychiatrists, Nurses and people from
many other fields including have used the healing
power of Samuel Hahnemann's similimum to relieve
Much to the chagrin of the "Trained and Licensed
Medical Professional", many of the best practitioners
throughout the history of Homeopathy have been Lay
people. The advantage the lay person has over the
medically trained person is simply that they don't
have to overcome the emphasis on the pharmacodynamics
of the medicinal agents and the emphasis on disease
etiology that the Medical Professional has had tattooed
into their consciousness.
Homeopathy requires a different style of thinking
that is often difficult to learn for someone trained
to determine the etiology of a disease in the medical
The Substances Homeopathic
Remedies Are Made From
Homeopathic remedies are originally derived from
the following substances.
All homeopathic remedies should be made at FDA-registered
homeopathic pharmacies and according to the simple
procedure of dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking).
Succussion is also known as dynamization or potentization.
It may sound like succussion is complicated, but
it simply involves shaking some energy into the
dilution or remedy.
- Botanicals: herbs, roots and flowers.
- Minerals and Mineral Substances
- Animal Substances: (Venoms)
- Electricity, x-ray, and magnetic fields
- Hormones, drugs and poisons such as agent
- Healthy tissue or secretions of the body
and organ preparations
- Bacteria, viruses and pathology. Using these
substances in my practice has saved peoples'
lives. I cannot understate the importance of
learning how to use them. If you have a grave
illness with no known treatment, you can try
homeopathy. Medical records show that diphtheria
was cured in the 1800's by using homeopathic
remedies. There is a homeopathic remedy available
for practically every disease.
- Secretions or flakes taken from a person's
skin, urine, blood, saliva, and/or mucous are
used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis,
acne, boils, ulcers or infections.
Homeopathic Remedy Preparation
Here are the steps that go into making a homeopathic
remedy from scratch.
- A substance is dissolved in an alcohol/water
solution called a tincture.
- Then one drop of the tincture is diluted
into from 9 to 99 drops of alcohol/water solution.
- This solution is vigorously succussed (pounded
& shaken). Succussion is performed on every
homeopathic remedy; it imbues the water with
kinetic energy, thereby increasing the remedy's
- One drop of this dilution is then added to
from 9 to 99 drops of fresh alcohol/water.
- It is succussed again.
This procedure can be repeated,
and with each dilution increasing the therapeutic
effect and the potency.
The potency of a remedy refers to the number of
dilutions in any preparation, which has been dynamized
using succussion. Although homeopathic potencies
go from very low to very high, most beginners
start with the X and C scale. Conventionally,
remedies are made on scales of 1:10 dilutions
and 1:100 dilutions. The 1:10 dilution scale is
designed X, and the 1:100 scale is call C potency.
A 12X potency means that the original tincture
is diluted 1:10 a total of 12 times serially,
with vigorous shaking in between. A 12 C means
that the original tincture is serially diluted
1:100 a total of 12 times, also with successions
The number of "succussions" required for each
dilution is not necessarily written in stone.
In fact, some homeopathic physicians violently
dispute the correct numbers almost as much as
traditional doctors dispute the validity of homeopathy's
Homeopathic remedies must be registered with the
FDA. They have no known toxicity and are safe
