Homeopathy has been verified by 200 years and thousands or perhaps even millions of practitioners. When you employ homeopathy you are igniting the biological intelligence in the organism. Furthermore, homeopathy delivers bio-information to the organism, which is necessary for healing. There are various levels of homeopathy such as the traditional constitutional level and the therapeutic level. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that was founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. It had its greatest popularity in the late 19th century here in the United States, when 15% of the doctors in this country were homeopaths. However, with the advent of modern medicine, homeopathy began to look old and stodgy and its popularity took a nose-dive. However, since 1980 homeopathy has seen a resurgence of interest in the United States and homeopathic books can be found in many bookstores and homeopathic physicians in most major cities.
Classical homeopathy rests on three principles: the “law of similars”, the single medicine, and the minimum dose. The law of similars states that a disease is cured by a medicine, which creates symptoms similar to those the patient is experiencing. Hence an important part of the prescription of a homeopathic medicine is a lengthy interview to determine all the symptoms the patient is experiencing. The homeopathic physician then determines which medicine best matches the symptoms the patient is experiencing and prescribes it. The principle of the single remedy states that a single medicine should cover all the symptoms the patient is experiencing: mental, emotional, and physical. A classical homeopath would not prescribe one medicine for a headache and another for an upset stomach; he or she would find a single medicine that covered both symptoms. The principle of the minimum dose has two parts. First the homeopathic physician only prescribes a small number of doses of the homeopathic medicine and waits to see what effect the medicine has. Second, the medicine is given in an infinitesimal dose.
Homeopaths have discovered that the effect of homeopathic medicines is strengthened upon successive dilutions as long as the medicine is succussed (shaken) between each dilution. Medicines are typically used in very high dilutions such as 30C (1 part in 10^-60) or 200C (1 part in 10^-400).
In modern homeopathy, combinations of several homeopathic substances, together with some herbal remedies, are often used as mixtures, which is called “complex homeopathy,” and has been developed in Germany over the past 150 years. There is also the isopathic approaches (ISO = same), in which case the causative factor of the illness is diluted in the same way as homeopathic medicines and is then given as a medication. One example of this is giving potentized pollens for the treatment of hay fever.
Potentization makes the diluted, inert substance active by releasing its energy. According to Hahnemann: “Homeopathic potentizations are processes by which the medicinal properties of drugs, which are in a latent state in the crude substance, are excited and enabled to act spiritually upon the vital forces.” Simple dilution of a drug is insufficient to produce a cure. To achieve potentization, after each successive 1-to-9 (“D”) or 1-to-100 (“C”) dilution, the solution must be shaken vigorously (the process is known as “succussion”). In the case of a powdered substance, it must be vigorously ground up (trituration). Potentization purports to liberate the energy of the substance being used for treatment and this liberated energy remains, even in the lowest doses.
A plant substance, for example, is mixed in alcohol to obtain a tincture. One drop of the tincture is mixed with 99 drops of alcohol (to achieve a ratio of 1:100) and the mixture is strongly shaken. This shaking process is known as succussion. The final bottle is labeled as “1C.” One drop of this 1C is then mixed with 100 drops of alcohol and the process is repeated to make a 2C. By the time the 3C is reached, the dilution is 1 part in 1 million! Small globules made from sugar are then saturated with the liquid dilution. These globules constitute the homeopathic medicine.
Although such infinitesimal quantities are considered by some to be no more than placebos, the clinical experience of homeopathy shows that the infinitesimal dose is effective: it works upon unconscious people and infants, and it even works on animals.
- One could say that a homeopathic remedy is a mirror, which shows you what is wrong with you.
- When you are treating with homeopathy, give a remedy for the most advanced symptom first.
- Throughout the world, homeopathy is used by physicians.
France, approximately 40% of physicians use classical homeopathy. Britain, over 40% of physicians use classical homeopathy. Germany, approximately 20% of physicians use homeopathy Holland, 45% use some homeopathy India, approximately hundreds of physicans use homeopathy and in addition, there are 115 medical schools and 100 hospitals.
HOMEOPATHIC HORMONE REJUVENATION
There is a vast difference between homeopathic hormone rejuvenation and other hormonal creams that contain so-called natural bio-identical, synthetic hormones and/or herbs. You see, homeopathic hormone rejuvenation uses small micro-amounts of a hormone. There are no milligrams of the hormones present because the molecules are micro. The hormones used in preparing a homeopathic remedy aare usually taken from animals, not drugs. (Although one could make a homeopathic remedy from any substance including a drug.) The animals used are healthy bovine. Since homeopathy is made of poisons, toxins, insects and pathology – using animal sources are very common.
Homeopathy can not even be compared to a vaccination. Homeopathy remedies have even smaller amounts of the actual substance in it.
Samuel Hahnemann who lived from 1755 to 1843 founded homeopathy. He qualified in medicine at the University of Leipzig in 1791. He was born one year before Mozart, and was a contemporary of Goethe and Schiller. He also had a great talent for languages, mathematics, geometry, and botany. After qualifying in medicine he practiced for nine years, during which time he married. He became increasingly disillusioned by the cruel and ineffective medical treatments of his time such as bloodletting, purging, and poisonous drugs, particularly mercury-based drugs. He took the courageous decision to give up his practice, concentrating instead on study, research, writing, and medical translations. This meant that for many years Hahnemann, his wife, and his increasing number of children were extremely poor. One of the major works that Hahnemann translated was Dr. William Cullen’s A Treatise of Materia Medica. Cullen (1710-90) was an Edinburgh teacher, physician, and chemist, and his book included an essay on Peruvian bark or cinchona (which homeopaths call ‘china’) from which quinine, the treatment for malaria is derived. Cullen attributed cinchona’s ability to cure malaria, with its symptoms of periodic fever, sweating, and palpitations, to its bitterness. Hahnemann was skeptical of this and tested small doses on himself. He observed that cinchona produced in a healthy person the symptoms of malaria, the very disease it was known to cure. This discovery was to be of great importance in the development of homeopathic theory and practice. By observing the symptoms any substance produced when given to a healthy person, Hahnemann could discover the healing properties of that substance. Doctors had long grappled with this problem and the doctrine of “signatures,” which states that a plant will act on that part of the body which it most resembles in appearance (Rudolph Steiner was particularly keen on this idea and much of his medical approach is based on this idea). This doctrine was an attempt to understand the healing powers of natural remedies. Hahnemann had discovered an experimental method that would systematically yield accurate, specific information about the individual substances tested. This procedure was called “proving,” a sort of testing, which was applied to a large number of remedies. Hahnemann assembled a number of “provers”, who would take various substances and would record in great detail any symptoms occurring. Then the principle medically was to match the patient’s symptoms to a homeopathic drug picture, and give that drug in a very dilute, and “potentized” (see below) form. Clinically this seemed to work, and Hahnemann attracted an increasing number of doctors to his ideas.
