Some Facts About Homeopathy, to help you understand how homeopathic remedies work.

Homeopathy

See Homeopathic Remedy Page for more details.

Samuel Hahnemann, the father of homeopathy, a German physician, chemist, and medical translator, was discouraged with the harsh, often dangerous, medical methods commonly used in his time. Hahnemann expanded the ancient idea of "like cures like" into a complete medical system. By 1900, approximately one in every five medical doctors was a homeopath. Political opposition from conventional physicians in the early 1900ís, however, led to eventual closing of all of the homeopathic medical schools and nearly led to the demise of homeopathy in the US. Fortunately, the homeopathic scene has advanced dramatically over the past 26 years. There are more than one thousand medically trained homeopaths now practicing in the US.

It is important to understand the difference between the Allopathic and the Homeopathic Medicine method of treatment.

The Allopathic Method

Allopathic medicine is the medicine by which the patientís symptoms are treated by substances which, in their first action, will push the symptoms in a direction other than that in which they are presently flowing. It treats one symptom or a specific set of systems. Think of a headache. If you take a painkiller for a headache, does it actually cure and give headache relief? Of course not, it merely separates you from the sensation of your pain. Cold medicine does the same thing for colds, it in no way ends the cold or act as a cold and flu remedy that prevents the next one; instead, it just keeps you briefly from experiencing the cold you already have.

Boericke, like Hahnemann before him, sees little value in allopathic treatments. about these, he lists the following objections:
1. It is merely symptomatic treatment attacking some prominent single condition, instead of the disease as a whole, and necessarily leads to polypharmacy in the endeavor to meet different conditions at the same time.
2. The transient amelioration is followed by an increased aggravation of the very condition to be removed, necessitating increasing dosage.
3. Drug diseases are established that complicate hopelessly the original disease of the patient; the possibility of harm by the introduction of the necessary large dosage of drugs and foreign substances always being very evident.

None of these therapeutic methods are curative in the true sense by directly modifying the vital activities of the organism. In the cases where such treatment is ultimately successful (and certain temporary beneficial results cannot be denied), the homeopathic methods is more direct, safer, more radical and with no possible harm to the patient.

Boericke says that the reason to object to allopathic treatment is that the allopathic treatment suppresses the disease symptoms therefore does not deal with the cause of the disease on the energistic (or even the physical ) level. If the suppression of the original ailment is deep enough, the cause of the disease will in the place of the first disease create a second disease. But worst still is the impact of the allopathic suppression on the patientís whole system.

With each suppression, the overall vital force, the overall immune system of the patient is weakened. And the stronger the allopathic drug, the strongest the suppression and the stronger the impact on that immune system. Thus we have a generation of patients for which antibiotics are no longer effective, and a generation of disease for which is immune to older antibiotics.

The HOMEOPATHIC Method

See homeopathic remedy page for more details. While the homeopathic medicine may be said to be a throwback to ancient practices, it must also be considered, in the light of modern scientific discoveries, to be the most modern form of medicine.

Homeopathic physicians treat the patients as whole beings, by respecting the symptoms first and recognizing that there is a reason that they exist in the first place. And then they work reactively - by giving the remedy that in a well person would create the totality of symptoms that the patient is already experiencing. That is the heart of the homeopathic method and practice. It is called similarity. It is the principle of treatment with which Hahnemann revolutionized medicine. But remember that the homeopathic method is a reactive method and it is the job of the remedy to act as a catalyst. As the bodyís own immune system rises up against the remedy in equal and opposite reaction, the reactive force moves the patient from a state of disease to a state of health. In homeopathy medicine, we are constantly aware that anything you do to the smallest tissue in the body you do to all the tissues in the body.

There are over two thousand homeopathic medicines made from substances in the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. The inherent irony of the homeopathic pharmacy and one of the central mysteries of homeopathic pharmacy and one of the central mysteries of homeopathic philosophy has to do with the act of dilution itself. This irony is best expressed in the Arndt-Schultz law, which gives insight into the biological activity of drugs. The law states that small doses of drugs will actually encourage life activity in general. Large material doses of drugs impede life activity in general, and very large doses of drugs will actually destroy life activity.

Hahnemann began to dilute his remedies in water. First on one part of the original substance with nine parts water and then one part substance to ninety-nine parts of water or alcohol to form a "1C" medicine. Not only were the remedies as powerful in their diluted states, but they were more curative. Another method he used called Succussion which is a process of systematically shaking the remedy while it is still in its liquid form. Hahnemann, through his empirical approach to medicine, found again and again that the remedies that had been shaken during their process of dilution were more potent than those that were not.

Homeopathy provides a safe, effective, natural, nontoxic treatment for many acute and chronic illnesses. It is important to remember that Hehnemann tells us that it is quite all right to move on to the second remedy if the first has not worked, but he does not suggest a third or fourth. While allopathic medicine is to always be considered suppressive, in time of true emergency you should consult with your physician. Learn homeopathic philosophy and practice now, so that when an emergency occurs, you will be in the best position to deal with it.

Arnica montana (Arnica) Arnica is also commonly called leopard's bane. The arnica plant has a bright yellow, daisy-like flower that blooms around July. Preparations made from the flowering heads have been used in homeopathic medicine for hundreds of years. It is popular in Germany and over 100 drug preparations are made from the plant. Arnica is a perennial that is protected in parts of Europe. The active components in arnica are sesquiterpene lactones, which are known to reduce inflammation and decrease pain. Other active principals are thymol (an essential oil), flavonoids, inulin, carotenoids and tannins. Arnica works by stimulating the activity of white blood cells that perform much of the digestion of congested blood, and by dispersing trapped, disorganized fluids from bumped and bruised tissue, joints and muscles. Arnica is known to stimulate blood circulation and can raise blood pressure, especially in the coronary arteries. The plant is used externally as an arthritis remedy, burns, ulcers, eczema and acne.
