Homeopathy for Healing – A Good Explanation

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:25 am by Administrator

Homeopathy is a term that is often misconstrued and confused with naturopathic medicine.  Homeopathy is a very distinct form of medicine that employs the law of similars.  Here is a good explanation from Dr. Michael Smith of Carolinas Natural Health Center:

Symptoms are the body’s only way of telling you that something is wrong or out of balance. The pain is your body’s way to stop yourself from further injury and forces you to rest. The cough is the body trying to expel something from your lungs and the fever is one of the body’s most vital means of fighting an infection.

Instead of suppressive conventional therapies, homeopathy offers an approach that works with the body’s natural ability to heal. It is a system of medicine that is based on the laws of similars. This law of nature states that a disease can be cured by using a substance that can produce the same or similar symptoms of the disease.

Over 200 years ago, Samuel Hahnemann organized the system of medicine of Homeopathy. He was familiar with the law of similars and put it to use after observing his own symptoms after taking quinine. He realized that the symptoms he developed were very similar to the symptoms of malaria. Hahnemann remembered this and decided to conduct an experiment using it in the next case of malaria he saw. Amazingly, the patient was rapidly cured when given quinine. Hahnemann recorded the symptoms of more and more substances, and without fail, cured the diseases those symptoms represented.

Today homeopathy is practiced around the world, and in some countries it stands as the primary method of treatment. Although the popularity of homeopathy has waxed and waned over the past two hundred years it has been again growing in popularity as people acknowledge its ability to restore health and often cure the incurable.

When using homeopathy, a trained practitioner takes time to understand all of the symptoms of the patient. Not only are the physical symptoms of their disease important, but the mental and emotional symptoms are also essential in choosing the best homeopathic remedy for that individual.

Homeopathic medicines are extremely safe and effective. They are mostly made from plants, minerals or animals. These substances are given in miniscule doses to eliminate the possibility of any side effects.

There are many products on the market that make mention of homeopathy or homeopathic. It is only truly homeopathic if the substance in the product can produce similar symptoms to the person taking it is presenting. Only when the symptoms of the person match the symptoms of the medicine is it homeopathic.

Homeopathy can be effective in treating most acute conditions, like the common cold, the flu and ear infections; It is also successful in treating more serious and chronic diseases like ADHD, Autism, irritable bowel, crohns, ulcerative colitis, eczema, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other auto-immune conditions; and mental emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder.

When choosing homeopathy to treat these conditions it is important to realize that there is real healing taking place. Although the process of treatment may take months or years for more chronic diseases, with every little improvement there is true healing that is taking place.
